You can have a doctor who removes the hair follicles from the nape of your neck underneath your regular head of hair...and surgicly implants them in your eyelash follicles. It is up to you or your cosmetician to appropriately dye, trim, and curl your new eyelashes to your liking. Here's the catch... they will continue to grow at the rate of your normal head of hair, requiring constant eyelash trimming and what not.

Would you do it?
No. I would not. That's what false eye lashes are for.

Well I am extrememly lucky in this area. I have long, dark thick eyelashes and don't even have to wear mascara.
I wouldn't do this procedure. I don't find it gross but the idea of the eyelashes growing at the same rate as my hair That could look really weird if you don't get them maintained enough.
Some salons to semi permanent eyelash extensions. Perhaps that would be a better alternative.

I don't understand how chicken pox could damage your eyebrows

With all the makeup choices, especially mascara unless you have NO eyelashes there is no reason to subject yourself to having such a procedure. The only procedure I'd ever consider and I mean, I'd have to heavily consider and way the pro's and con's is having eyebrows tattooed. I have two friends that had it done and they look very natural but they had very sparse eyebrows and had to pencil in all the time, as do I. I wouldn't have something implanted though. I think you leave yourself wide open for complications.

I can't imagine having to trim my eyelashes because they grew long, like my hair. It's not gross, but it is strange.

My eyelashes are shorter than they used to be. I'm tempted to use Latisse but am too cheap to budget $100 a month or whatever.

Scaring. It happens all the time. When I got chicken pox the very first one to show up was on my eyebrow and I didn't know what it was a picked at it.

As for my eyelashes, my left eye developed a balding spot right in the middle. There are lashes out the outer and inner parts but the middle part...not so much. I've been to the eye Dr who sent me to a specialist and he said there actually are lashes there, they are just short and white and fall out before reaching a normal length and start growing again. He had no clue since there is no physical problem. It's super annoying and I no longer wear mascara. Now I'm experimenting with eyeliner just to give my eyes some definition.
