So you’ve finally had that long-awaited hair transplant, and you are ready to go home and start growing hair! Well, that’s great, but let’s slow down a bit and think about all the things that may help in insuring the best possible outcome for this procedure. Above all, follow the instructions you’ve been given; they are there for a reason, and much energy has been put into developing a set of guidelines for patients after FUE. After all, you have paid in money and time for the operation, and the doctor and his team have performed a meticulous and demanding procedure. Why not do everything in your power to tip the scales in your favor? Read over the written instructions for post-operative care several times; consider reviewing it again the following day until you are familiar with all the points being emphasized. This is very important because some of the Read More

I want to have a hair transplant but there is so much confusing information I have no idea what to believe. What should I know? Yes, I agree. It is most confusing. With the advent of FUE and the explosion in the number of clinics and fly by night operators flooding the hair transplant market all of a sudden the competition in the field of hair transplant has expanded faster and more broadly than at any time in history. With this increased competition has come unique marketing requirements and even more unique selling propositions. Most clinics in India hire employees with an MBA to market themselves. These employees may not be well versed in the ethics of medical practice therefore medical scruples have no meaning. Clinics with doctors and trained staff still exist but such clinics are on a steady decline. The only reasons for which a clinic should be Read More

By definition a Revision is a procedure that sets right an imperfectly done earlier procedure. The imperfection can be due to the following reasons: 1. A doll’s head look due to punch grafting of yester-years when large size punches were used and they gave an ugly appearance Ken would not want on Barbie! 2. In contemporary times, a hair transplant done by a novice surgeon/ technician without adequate training. This could have led to any or all of the following which may need correction- (a) Placing 2s and 3s in the leading row of the hairline (b) Placing grafts deep leading to pitting and puckering (c) A wide and ugly FUT scar that cannot be hidden with native hair (d) A hairline that is too low or assymetric (e) Temple points may have been sited unnaturally (f) Poor growth of planted grafts (g) Mal-directed slits resulting in hair growing in Read More

Back hair for hair transplant The hair at the back of the chest are usually not considered good for body hair transplantsince- 1. They are not DHT resistant 2. Their life cycle is much longer and therefore they take longer to grow. 3. Thirdly, and more importantly from a technical point of view, the area requires large amount of anesthesia for few grafts and shall need to be done over 2-3 days to avoid the risk of overdosage. The best sources of hair for a body hair transplant are the following in descending order of preference- 1. Beard 2. Chest 3. Axilla 4. Pubis Read More

  Hair transplant in women is different from hair transplant in men for the following reasons- 1. A woman mostly has unrealistic expectations from a hair transplant 2. In female pattern hair loss, the donor area too is undergoing miniaturisation and graft availability is very low in most unless a female has come in just for  lowering of her hairline or creating a widow’s peak- circumstances where there is no genetic hair loss. A lady will seldom allow complete trimming of her hair.   This makes a female hair transplant much more challenging as contrasted to a male hair transplant. Usually in women through the “no shave technique” we can extract upto 1500-1800 scalp grafts. However in those mentioned below we can achieve much higher figures- 1. Female wanting lowering or adjustment of hairline 2. Transsexuals wanting a hairline gender reassignment.   Read More

At my clinic we have 95% and above people coming for hair transplant in India from overseas. Mostly of Indian origin, the remaining 30% are majority Caucasians. The average stay in Chandigarh/ India after the hair transplant is 2.5 days  following which patients fly as far back as Australia/ and N.America, the 2 most common countries from which we get overseas patients for hair transplant. As long as they keep spraying the planted area with the hydrating solution (provided at the clinic) every 2 hours there is no discomfort. Grafts can never dry up once in the body since the roots are buried beneath the skin and for the first 6 days they survive by “plasmatic imbibition”. There is no “dryness” under the skin.   Read More
