This 35 years old patient came for correction of an FUT scar done elsewhere. The skin is tight and the scar is dense. The patient was told that the treatment of such big scars is not a hair transplant. Neither can it be closed using the trichophytic closure technique. He would need to get a tissue expanded flap cover done by a reconstructive plastic surgeon. This is a method that takes around 3 months before the flap is expanded enough to cover the large resultant area after excision of previous scar Read More

‘Cherry picking’ is yet another agricultural term used for the description of anagen selective hair transplant. It denotes the harvesting of ‘golden follicles’ (those that are in full bloom) in the anagen phase of growth. The advantage of harvesting these healthy follicles is that it leads to better growth over a shorter span with seemingly higher density with increased survival during transfer. The golden follicles are selected either by mechanical selection or visual selection. In the former, the donor area is shaved 3 days prior to the proecdure. Since follicles other than those in the anagen growth phase are slow to grow, only the best will be available to harvest. In visual selection, high magnification is used to weed out poor quality available grafts. This technique is the most effective way to move the very best grafts with fuller body and high survivability to the recipient site for the best Read More

A lot of my work entails repairing of FUT scars. Most that come to me are very wide scars and the treatment in these cases mostly is scalp relaxation exercises followed by trichophytic reveion closure with z-plasty. However every FUT scar today wants revision. Strip scars are not pleasing any more for contemporary hair styles that are very short at the back and sides. Points to be noted while repairing are- 1. FUT scar revision entails camouflaging the scar by breaking the visual linearity. The scar remains the same. Only it is less visible. It is a mere trick for the eye! 2. I do not harvest above the scar so the hair above are not thinned and do not reveal the scar more. 3. Beard grafts are the best grafts to cover strip scars since they are thick and coarse and break the visual linearity better than thinner hair Read More

Hair loss evinces varied reactions from men and women alike. Since olden days magical hair loss cures, have been sold to gullible people. When we talk of hair loss it is the genetic cause that is mostly implied. However there may be hair loss due to immunological disorders, skin disease or while on anticancer drugs. It is increasingly becoming evident that hair loss as we see it today is evolutionary. This explains the early onset of hair loss in young males and females. Though genetic cause is the supreme underlying environmental factors like stress, lack of sleep, fast food diet and use of improper hair care products are responsible for early onset. Like man lost his tail rendering tail transplant surgeons obsolete, hair transplant surgeons may become extinct when more people become bald and possession of a thick mane of hair is not longer at a premium. Already bald people, Read More

DOs: Take your medication at specific time of the day as advised on the schedule. Keep upright and sleep in semi setting position for minimum first three nights after the procedure so that head is higher than the heart. Water the roots minimum every 20 minutes on the evening after the procedure till you sleep and every 2 hours the next morning onwards. Spray antiseptic three times in a day (once in the morning after the shampoo after drying, second in the afternoon after lunch and 3rd time in the evening after shampoo and drying). This should be done from arm’s length away- 2 feet. Restart your other medications at your routine time as you were taking them prior to the procedure. Keep your eyes closed & covered with towel during antiseptic spray. Take shower and tap water bath below shoulders only. Do continue your routine work or even brisk Read More

1. OOZING: This normally occurs during first few hours or at the most on first day. (a) From Plantation Area: As the roots are planted in the normal skin either on bald area or between hair with very fine blades, small amount of blood and serum oozes out- a drop from each site. For this we need to spray saline every 20 minutes on the evening after the procedure and every 2 hours the next day onwards till morning of 4th day post procedure. (b) From the donor area: A dressing is applied. This dressing is removed on the first/second day after the procedure. The night after the procedure you can expect some blood staining of the applied dressing. This is normal. You have been provided a sterile towel in your kit to spread over the 2 pillows used to lift up your head while you sleep. This towel shall Read More
