Wow, that's a very impressive result considering this guy was essentially a full Norwood 7 and now he looks like has just about a full head of hair again.
Nice work Dr. Sethi and Dr. Bansal.
Subject: Potential Recommendation of Dr. Emorane Lupanzula, Belgium
Dear forum members,
As many of you know, we gather as much information as possible about a physician, their staff, technique and track record before they are even considered for recommendation on the Hair Transplant Network. Part of our review process involves getting input from patients and the members of this forum community. To learn more about this review process, click here.
We would appreciate your input regarding the potential recommendation of Dr. Pradeep Sethi and Dr. Arika Bansal of Mumbai. At this time, both physicians are only being considered for recommendation, not the Coalition. To see our standards for recommendation, click here
Dr. Pradeep Sethi and Dr. Arika Bansal are a husband and wife team of surgeons that work in tandem on each hair transplant procedure at their clinic in Mumbai. They perform hair transplant surgery exclusively and operate on only one or two patients per day between the two of them. Both doctors perform both FUE (follicular unit extraction) and FUSS (follicular unit strip surgery) although at this point, they perform very few strip procedures.
Their primary technique is a modified version of FUE referred to as Direct Hair Transplantation or DHT. During this technique, follicular units are extracted using a motorized device and planted simultaneously. They started performing this technique in 2012 and published a scientific paper in the Journal of Cutaneous and Aesthetic Science (JCAS) about it in 2013.
Both Dr. Sethi and Dr. Bansal are members of several well respected professional organizations including the ISHRS, AHRS, IADVL and the ACSI. Dr. Bansal is also a board certified diplomate of the ABHRS (American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery).
Dr. Sethi and Dr. Bansal have just under 10 years of experience performing hair transplants and have been performing exclusive hair transplant surgery since 2013. They specialize in FUE (DHT), BHT (body hair transplantation), eyebrow transplantation, eyelash restoration, beard transplantation, scar repair and other repair procedures, etc. They also provide medical treatments for managing male and female pattern baldness.
Dr.Sethi and Dr. Bansal have the staff and experience to perform large, densely packed sessions of ultra refined follicular unit hair transplantation exceeding 3000 and 4000 grafts when appropriate for the patient. Typical session sizes range between 2500 and 3000 grafts. Large session sizes may exceed 5000 grafts for patients with an optimal donor area.
The surgeons use a motorized punch used called the MPCID Marathon typically ranging from .8mm to 1mm depending on the patient and the size of the graft. This reduces trauma and resultant scarring to the skin while eradicating damage to the surrounding follicles. Dense packing typically ranges from 35 to 50 grafts per square centimeter (FU/cm2) which they feel provides an adequate an illusion of density while preserving vascularity to the scalp.
Dr. Sethi and Dr. Bansal use all the latest techniques including the trichophytic donor closure technique for strip procedures, microscopic dissection and minimally invasive tools to minimize trauma and maximize dense packing.
During both procedures, the surgeons pre-make all recipient incisions and then grafts are simultaneously excised and implanted into tiny recipient incisions ranging from .9mm to 1.05mm.
In order to create the most natural looking hairline and result, Dr. Sethi and Dr. Bansal select only the finest 1 haired follicular units for placement in the first two rows of the hairline.
Given Dr. Sethi's and Dr. Bansal's vast experience in performing both state of the art FUE (and some FUSS) and providing only the best results, in my opinion, they should be considered for recommendation.
In the last couple of weeks, Dr. Sethi and Dr. Bansal presented several examples of their procedure and results on this forum. Their recent patient and surgical photos can be found below:
