Women with thyroid problems are likely to face hair loss from their scalp, eyebrows, eyelashes and rest of the parts of the body. As a result the hair on your eyelashes may become thin, dry, sparse and brittle.

Alopecia Areata:

This is an autoimmune disorder where in the immune system of your body will start attacking the hair follicles, causing your hair to fall out. Although this mainly affects the hair on your scalp, in rare cases it might even affect your eyelashes and eyebrows too.

Most women use mascaras that have chemical content. Some of these may even cause allergies, due to which your lashes may fall out.


This is a condition where in you may come across an inflammation of your eyelids because of over growth of bacteria that generally exists on our skin. This may even happen due to allergies or blockage of the oil glands of your eyelids. You may experience some amount of swelling, redness and itchiness that can be treated through proper hygiene.


Chemotherapy, which is a must treatment in case of cancers, has many disadvantages. Eyelash hair loss is definitely one of them. This loss may be temporary or permanent, depending upon the patient’s condition. However, it is better to consult your doctor first before going in for any kind of treatment.

Natural Eyelash Loss:

There is a chance that your eyelashes may just fall out naturally. The reasons could be improper eyelid hygiene and environmental factors. If this happens, they usually grow back; and if they don’t there is always treatments like eyelash transplant.

Symptoms of Eyelash Hair loss:

If you find your eyelash hair falling on your face too often, while you are washing your face or having a shower, there definitely is something wrong. You may have to consult a doctor to find out the cause; else, you may just start losing most of your eyelashes. In some cases medications work wonders when it comes to stopping such hair loss and stimulating the re-growth of hair; however, eyelash transplant can be your big-time rescuer if they fail to work.

Diagnosis of Eyelash Hair Loss:

An examination of your eyelids and eyelashes may tell the doctor that you are losing hair from your eyelashes. However, in order to find out the exact reason behind such a loss, your doctor may require you to undergo a blood test. In very rare cases, he/she may ask you to go for a skin biopsy test, if the cause hasn’t been identified.

Eyelash Transplant Procedure:

Eyelash Transplant uses the FUE or Follicular Unit Extraction technique to restore eyelashes that have fallen out due to reasons. Here, the healthy hair follicles are extracted from the back of your head, one by one, and then transplanted on to your eyelashes after they are dissected under a high-powered microscope.

How it works?

  • The donor area (back of your head) is prepared by trimming up the hair and applying a local anesthetic
  • Then the hair follicles are extracted using a precision tool that makes a circular incision around the hair follicle to separate the same from the scalp
  • These follicles are then dissected under a high-powered microscope to prepare them into grafts
  • A local anesthetic is smeared on your eyelids and very tiny incisions are made so as to place these grafts
  • The grafts are then placed into the incisions very carefully, taking into account the exact direction and positioning.

Cost of Eyelash Transplant:

Eyelash transplant is a minor procedure which is not too expensive. However, the exact cost can’t be determined unless the surgeon evaluates the existing amount of hair on your eyelids, the number of grafts that are required and the kind of density you would like to achieve. This amount may vary from person to person. You can book an appointment with one of our experts to get the cost of your eyelash transplant estimated and queries clarified.
