Why clients come to Darling Buds, India?

You have done enough research and would know that Hair transplant cost in countries like USA, Brazil, Canada, UK, Bahrain, Dubai, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand and European countries like France, Switzerland, Spain, Germany ranges from USD 6,000- 22,000. With the downswing in economy, it has become difficult for the average client to afford a hair transplant at such costs in most countries. For the past 5 years, hair transplant services at the very best centers in India have become a force to reckon with as far as quality of care and results and pricing structure are concerned. Due to these reasons, clients suffering from hair loss are increasingly looking Eastwards for their hair transplant. This great demand has spurred the number of transplant procedures being done at Darling Buds.
What are the reasons for this Boom? Read on-

  1. Doctors from India have long been considered in the UK, USA, Canada , Australia and NZ as very skilled. Every family in these countries has at one time or the other been treated by an Indian family physician or they have been treated by a specialist of Indian origin in a larger hospital. India is known the world over for its compassionate doctors, caring nurses and quality care.
  2. In the past few years, Top Indian centers like Darling Buds are recognized as favoured destinations for those considering medical travel overseas for hair transplant.
  3. Still rates in India for hair transplant are the most competitive in the world. Almost ‘A-Dollar-and-a-Half-a-Graft’ at Darling Buds is the longest a dollar can be stretched!
  4. ‘Big Mac’, from NZ, and a client at “Darling Buds” wrote this in the testimonial book- “I love India for hair transplant because- I got an Indian doctor with US training and standards of care, at Chinese rates!” This says it all!
  5. For this tame price you get a world renowned and experienced doctor who will give you results which compare with the best centers in USA.

Should cost be the only reason to choose your Doctor?
No, cost may not reflect the competence of a hair transplant center when trying to locate a doctor in India on the world wide web. The following need to be taken into account-

  1. Read the “About Us” page carefully – Credentials never lie! Whatever a doctor may post on his profile, he cannot write fake information on his “About Us” page. Read about the doctor’s credentials- not only on his website but also Google his name and see the results. Choosing the right plastic surgeon is 75% of decision making when traveling abroad for a hair transplant.
  2. Visit Hair Forums like –
  1. Is your doctor accredited by the ISHRS (International Society of Hair Restoration Surgeons)
    www.ishrs.org and has he been attending the Meetings each year to update his knowledge. If he is not, is he happy to give you the skills that may be outdated? Ask him if he regularly presents his work at the ISHRS for the purpose of peer review?
  2. Do the technicians of the doctor have a high attrition rate?
  3. Does the doctor hesitate in showing photographs of his center and the facilities offered?
  4. Ask for travel advice and arrangements for stay. The best centers will take care of you from the time you land in the country till your flight departs back home.
  5. Call the doctor’s office and request to speak to him personally to clarify all the above points. Get all this in writing from him through e-mail before committing your procedure..
  6. Lastly, ask yourself- “Am I traveling to India for a Cheap and inexpensive hair transplant or an Affordable and Effective procedure!”

The rates at Darling Buds would perhaps raise your eyebrows and naturally you would suspect the pricing structure associating low price with lower quality and ambivalent final results. However when in India this does not hold true. We are one of the costlier centers in India. The “low cost” at our facility is due to the fact that hiring staff, leasing a facility and cost of equipment and disposables are much cheaper as compared even to countries in Eastern Europe, China and Thailand. We at our center pass on the majority of the savings so made to our clients so that you can make a quicker decision to travel to us in India. We are aware that air travel is expensive and so is 2-3 nights’ stay in India. This is the reason we offer such low rates.
