The latest fad ? eyelash transplants, a snip at £3,200

Not content with lifting faces and boosting breasts, cosmetic surgeons in America have developed a "plug and sew" hair graft technique to give women longer, thicker eyelashes.
The surgery is the latest cosmetic fad to sweep the United States, with customers paying $6,000 (£3,200) to have treatment similar to that developed to treat balding men, which involves grafting hair from the head on to the upper eyelid.
The hairs then take root and start to grow, so the new lashes must be trimmed regularly and curled.
People with straight hair are advised to get their transplanted lashes permed to achieve a more realistic look.

It could be the start of a whole new batch of ailments - eg whiplash of the eyelid (when you get a speck of dust in the eye)
