Hi friends,

 

I am planning to get my hair transplant done in Delhi/NCR. I have visited Dr B K Garg (Aravali Clinic) - and he has suggested 4500 grafts at Rs 30/graft FUE. I am planning to get 3000 - 4000 grafts transplanted. Guys any feedback for the doctor?

 

The things which I like is that that the most of the procedure would be done by the doctor in 2 days (even for 3000 grafts) so expecting quality. The doctor has received best doctor's award in HT. The negative is that he is listed in Best Hair Transplant Surgeons for Hair Loss Treatment India as well. Not sure how trust worthy is the chain.

 

I also met Dr. Ashit Gupta (Gurgaon). He quoted 65k for 3000-3200 grafts. Does any body has reviews for him.

 

Also, please share other doctors/clinics reviews if any.

 

I am planning to get it done soon (in a week or two).

 

Thanks

It is difficult to assess both these docs. I went through the Aravali website, looks like some results have been good but some looks sub-par, grafts placed too far apart leading to not so natural hairline.

 

I did look at few pictures (there are only a few of them which is kind of a red flag in my mind, again it is my own personal opinion) on Ashit Gupta's website. However the pre and post pictures posted by him looks more convincing and with better result. Now I hope those are his patient's and not others...I don't know how to confirm this.

Thanks Harin for your reply!

 

Finally, I got my HT done last Saturday. Thought of penning down my experience on this website.

After talking to many doctors, I thought of going ahead with Dr. Arika Bansal in her newly built Gurgaon clinic. She was one of the doctors who advised that my hair loss is diffused and can be cured using medicines except the hair line which has receded too much and there are no roots left. I went ahead with hair line make over. My overall experience was very good. The place was very clean, hygienic and well maintained. The HT started at around 11:00 AM in the morning and completed at around 8-8:30 in the evening. 2153 grafts were implanted using MPCID technique (FUE). The complete process was very easy going for me and the doctor and her staff was very polite and supportive. I was so relaxed and comfortable that I slept for approximately 3 hours during the HT :) . The doctor seemed very expert in extracting the grafts and making the holes. The staff placing the grafts also seemed very experienced. A team of 6 people was working on me at the same time and all the grafts were implanted within couple of minutes of extraction.

 

Today, I have completed 4 days and I have not experienced any swelling till yet. All the grafts are in place till now :). Initially, the donor area didn't look good and was reddish. On day 4, my donor area is almost healed with no pain. I think it should be completely normal in another 2-3 days. Don’t feel that I have undergone any surgery. Just waiting for results in the long run. Posting my day 4 pics and the hair line that I had agreed on the day of my first consultation with the doctor. I will get the pre-and post pics from the doctor when I visit her next and will also share them. Please let me know in case anybody needs more information.

Good luck for your growth. Looking at your picture and depending on what your goals are looks like you will need some graft coverage atleast on frontal 1/3rd, should be easy to do once the current grafted areas heal.

 

Few questions:

 

1. What has been our experience in researching various HT docs in New Delhi area? and why did you choose this physician, was cost a major factor?, did you compare their results?

 

2. Do you have pictures of your donor area, from the back?

 

3. Do you have any recommendation as such in ND area from your own personal experience?

 

Thanks again for the information.

 

Goodluck. The hairline and the graft placements looks good from current pictures, however will need some higher resolution pictures which are not blurry to make further assessment.

I looked at Dr. Bhansal's website and the results truly looks very impressive. I plan to consult her too. Thanks you for letting us know about her. There are so many talented surgeons who have not been featured here and elsewhere.

Thanks David!

 

Harin,

--1. What has been our experience in researching various HT docs in New Delhi area? and why did you choose this physician, was cost a major factor?, did you compare their results?

I met a lot of doctors and got more and more information, but at the same time it was getting confusing. I came across fancy words like feather touch, bio FUE, robotic, Etc. And everyone claiming to have the technique patented or the only one doing in India. So many clinics in Delhi/NCR region have mushroomed these days. Definitely, many of them would be good but still lot of saloon/spa centers have also started doing HT. Cost was the major factor but not the only factor. Mainly, I wanted my hair line to be restored so I didn’t want to take risk. Also, I wanted my existing grafts to be saved for any future transplants and also not destroying my existing hair. I met some good doctors at lower prices as well. But my confidence was built on Dr Arika. Also, I gave preference to experience (number of surgeries done) and education (Dr. Arika is passed out of AIIMS). Also, Dr Arika did not seem very money minded. Some of clinics have their marketing team who would keep on calling you with offers and you would be surprised that I met a doctor who claimed to have a lot of experience but did not know what Alopecia Areata was. Also, I wanted the HT to be done by the doctor whom I consult and not be surprised to find an unknown face in the OT. Many doctors have posted very good results on their website but looking at some of their other results makes you feel why they even had HT done. Ultimately, you need to have confidence on the doctor who does the HT and leave rest to God. But before that do some research because I have seen some really very bad results and they person has gone multiple surgeries and wasted a lot of money and still no results.

 

--2. Do you have pictures of your donor area, from the back?

I will share them soon

--3. Do you have any recommendation as such in ND area from your own personal experience?

I would suggest Dr Arika because my experience with her was good. You may also contact –

Medispa- Good results, a bit costly but wanted me to go with FUT

Dr Anuj Pall- Good results shown, costly, HT was to be done by other doctors

Dr B K Garg – Awarded best doctor (as given in their website), not costly, good results shown on their website but some results are not good

arhtglobal Rajaouri Garden-I found them good, not very costly but met a person who was not very happy with the results and was going for a second HT. Also, it seemed that they have excessively worked on promoting themselves on the internet but the results shown on their website look photo shopped. An international form should have at least high megapixel camera

 

You may contact me in case you need more details.

@SHASLEc0 : Excellent information, thank you. @ harin - good questions to ask.

 

I am impressed by the detaile Dr. Garg has shown in recreating your hairline, seems like from the post-op pics she really paid attention in creating a natural looking hairline.

 

I have similar question as harin.

 

I have done some research into New Delhi and Bangalore docs. Dr. Kapil Dua, MD, Dr. A, (******) what has been your research into their clinics and results?.

 

Does Dr. Garg also do BHT?

 

Regarding obtaining consults from Dr. Garg, did you go thru her website or in person?.

Thank you SHASLEc0, those are some detailed answers. This is very helpful.

 

I think overall I agree with both Davis and sutureless, hairline work looks like its been done very meticulously and you will definitely have very good results. I am keeping my fingers crossed and keeping you in my prayers for a great growth and results.

 

As I said I went through Dr. Bansal's website and so far have been very impressed with those results.

 

I do have NW6 alopecia and would require body hair supplement for restoration, it would be nice to know if Dr. Garg does body/beard hair transplants as well?.

 

Again thank you, awaiting more pictures and good luck brother!

Sutureles,

 

I think you have misunderstood. My HT is done by Dr Arika Bansal (eugenix) and not by Dr. Garg :)

 

Dr Arika does BHT. I had consulted Dr. Kapil Dua's clinic as well. They have big fancy clinic in Delhi's prime area, as a result they are costly. They can also provide cheaper options, but the HT would be done by some other doctor in his clinic.

 

The problem with such big brands is that you cannot be sure who will do the HT. May be the main doctor is there for only couple of minutes and all the work is done by other doctors. And you don't know how much experienced they are.

 

I would always prefer my HT to be done by the doctor whom I consult because I have the trust on the doctor and not the brand.

@SHASLEc0,

 

Thank you, she responded today saying that I would at least need 7-9 k grafts in total probably spread over 2-3 sessions. I would have to use some beard and body hair grafts as well.

 

Any idea about how much is the charge in Indian rupees for scalp and body hair transplant?

 

Did you have a follow-up appointment?, any updates?

Dear All,

 

I appreciate the point of view discussed here but I would like to insist what makes a brand big is its systems, practices, values & ethical conduct. When we buy clothes we never compromise but when it comes health we don’t follow same.

 

At AK Clinics, the person has the facility to meet the operating surgeon as they are not on call surgeons but work with AK Clinics. Further, all of them come through a very rigorous training & follow standard procedure to ensure best results. Even if the patient is situated far off, there is a facility for Online Video Call with the concerned doctor to ensure all doubts. Further if the cost was commensurate the infrastructure & location - there can not be any cost effective options available.

Further all renowned & experienced doctors in India charge almost same as Dr Kapil Dua, and if AK Clinics commits that Dr Kapil Dua will do surgery, only he will. Only challenge is that at AK Clinics, no matter what, unethical practices like unlimited grafts by FUE etc are not entertained even if the patient insists.

sorry for not providing updates since few weeks! had been quiet busy. I am attaching my 2.5 weeks post op pics.

Harin, specially for you. They might be able to help you take the decision.

 

I am happy with the results that I have received in 2.5 months. Senior members can provide their comments/feedbacks.

Actually, you make some very valid observations, I agree with you. But looks like SHASLEc0 has had very good results from his doctor!. I have seen some of Dr. Dua's work and am very impressed as well.

Question:

 

1. Did the grafts fall off before they re-grew?, I know everyone is different but just was curious.

 

2. How did u sleep for first few days?, must have been difficult to make sure that you accidentally do not touch those transplanted grafts.

 

Do you suggest any good hotels nearby for the patients going for transplant?

 

Thanks.
