Hi everyone,

I have been suffering from hair loss for almost 6-7 years, but the condition aggravated in the last 2 years. Have researched lot through this forum for knowledge and information about hair transplant before taking the plunge, I selected Dr. Bhatti for his visible results with less grafts.

 

I belong to India and Dr. Bhatti's clinic is only a 1 hour car drive, so it was easy for me to select him.

I drove down 2 weeks before the procedure for pre-op counselling with Dr. Bhatti (Discussed few important things and we decided to leave crown area this time. As I wanted to make front looks better first and don’t want to waste too many grafts in single attempt).

 

Procedure Day:-

 

1. Reached clinic at sharp 7:00 AM. Quick blood sample and again Dr. Bhatti draw a final hairline, I agreed to his judgement as we already discussed about it before.

2. Pre HT pictures clicked by Dr. Bhatti for future reference.

3. Haircut and head washing before surgery. Finally again hairline drawn and discussed.

4. Harvesting procedure started with anesthesia which feels little bit but tolerable. It took 3 hours to harvesting as my skin was little touch.

5. After small break Dr. Bhatti started silting and it took approx. 1 hour with no pain at all.

6. Moved to second room for plantation, which took 3.5 hours with no pain at all again and I enjoyed Indian songs on TV during the process.

7. Throughout the process I was told many times, I have very healthy grafts with most of them having 2/3 hairs.

 

Summary

At the end, I'm glad that I selected a best clinic. Dr. Bhatti seemed very nice and proficient in his work - he is a busy man though doing 2 cases a day. I specially want to mention, his staff is very well behaving and very helpful. I had a mostly positive experience with Darling buds - am hopeful and looking forward to my result now. I've got high hopes for my hair growth. Fingers crossed!!

 

Posting some of my Pre and Post-surgery pics here also will keep posting. Thanks for reading. For anyone wanting to know more about the clinic/ surgery, please feel free to ask questions here or PM me.

Shedding is already started from last few days and loosing almost 20-30 hair on daily basis. No redness to be notice at this point. Nobody is able to recognize like have an HT 20 days ago it is blended well with existing hair. Itching badly at some points, I know this is a normal healing process but hard to avoid it.

@Indi9 Doctor told me to use it. As I used it before HT but got some negative effects like, unwanted hair on ears, shoulders and also got puffy eyes.

 

Few more things as I think it never help to re-grow, just creates an illusion of thicker hair, if once used then have to stay on it for rest of life. I found it very tough to use it in daily routine. I explained these things to doctor and he said you can avoid it. So not using it. Also after 6 months I will reduce my Fin dose to .5 mg to avoid any long term side effects. Currently having no signs of any sides with fin.

Today I reached 1 month mark and just want to provide an update. Things are going well for me. Currently in shedding phase but only 20% hair shed yet. I am still feeling comfortable and never covered my head in public place, hair are growing at normal rate, some small hair are trying to catch others and hopefully scenario will be better in upcoming 2-3 months.

 

No shock loss yet, donor area is looking normal but still have itching, very minor redness, you can see in pictures. I am already looking better then pre-op and I am sure my results will be awesome.

 

Some early shed hair start growing and you can see that in zoomed-in picture below. :)

Top is filling up now, as compared to last month there are some improvements but it is too early to say something. As mentioned in previous posts along with existing hair some transplanted hair are also growing. Little bit of itching is still bothering me, few pimples as well but nothing major to report. I am attaching 3 pictures, front view, top view and zoom-in which shows new hair are sprouting. Hopefully next couple of months will be more exiting.
