Gross, or not gross?

I had to start a thread on this, it was in the news a few weeks ago...

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?

I do not think is gross, I'd make sure the person performing the extensions is a professional and everything looks clean of course

Since it is a surgical procedure it would have to be a licensed doctor. It would not be something that you could just make an appt for at your local salon. I am assuming there would be a anesthetic also, so it would be mandatory to find a reputable doctor..

Aye, here it is.

Taken from : Stellar Beauty

Long beautiful eyelashes and full glamorous eyebrows are not something most of us women were born with but now with the introduction of semi-permanent eyelash extensions there was finally hope. To take the lash and brow thing one step further there is now also eyelash transplant and eyebrow transplant surgery available. To give you a quick overview hair follicles are basically taken from the back of your scalp and brought to the eyelash area or eyebrow to be transplanted. This surgery is beneficial to those suffering from Alopecia - which is loss of hair, congenital reasons, disease, plucking or undergoing chemotherapy or radiation.

As a child I had chicken pox, one time. The chicken pox left me with really skimpy eyebrows. I have always had to 'pencil' them in. If I was younger, I would go for the eyebrow implant...
