Hair transplant is very popular, but lacks transparency

Recommended Posts

In every service, particularly hair transplant procedure transparency is the key with regards to price, quality, and efficacy of medical services. This is important because it goes a long way in helping a person to make the right decision after all it is their money and their future. Therefore, transparency must go together with for hair loss patients because many are not given the full information or get enticed by such low cost they forget the competency of the doctor. This is one service in India that has seen a rise in competition and great big advertisement can be seen on newspaper with photos of celebrity endorsement to lured the public.

Hair transplant is a procedure which must be performed by a plastic surgeon, period! This is a cosmetic surgery and there was a time when this procedure was very expensive in India but those who could afford would often travel to western countries to get it done. However, in the last five years’ things have changed and there are many clinics in India offering quality hair transplant and the fact is people from across the world are coming to get hair transplant in India to some specific clinics for great results and cost. But there are several clinics that are running parallel operations with unqualified doctors and to catch “customers” (they do not treat then as patients but as customers) they quote exuberantly low cost.

Hi Somit,

I am not too much into it. However, one of my friend Saurabh had a hair transplant from Dr. Mayank, you can visit to him at RADIANCE COSMEDIC CENTRE. According to Saurabh, Dr. Mayank is quite good and cost effective too.

vverma,

 

Welcome to our hair restoration forum community. Transparency and honesty is crucial when it comes to hair transplant surgery. Thankfully, today, many excellent surgeons are very open and honest about their procedure and share their results here on this forum. Our prescreening and recommendation process is also transparent. See "How We Recommend Hair Transplant Surgeon". To see which surgeons we recommend, click here.

 

Best wishes,

 

Bill

    • What you said makes complete sense!!!! That’s exactly how my doctor thinks. I just thought after 2 passes I would achieve my goal. I do have fine hair which does not help but on the other hand light hair and skin does help my donor area not looking to bad. I was kinda worried about taking another 2000 grafts out not sure what I would have left after that but hopefully it will be enough that even if I lose more I will have enough transplant to be content. 
    • I would not be surprised if, whomever has an Artas machine, uses it for marketing purposes only.  It does attract many people and-in a way- does advertise the idea that they are keeping with the times. Once there for consult, however, they will try to push something else...FUT, FUE or whatever technique they are using. I think most in the industry realize that science has a long way to go.  While I appreciate the fact the staff does not get tired, neither does the machine, this industry needs the human touch.  The doctor and the clinical staff can "see."  The machine can't.   There are a number of factors involved and I can gladly walk you through them if you wish.....
    • In the old days, when I first came into the industry the global idea involved leaving a separation in between grafts.  The concern was mainly grafts competing for blood supply. Thus, a patient would do a procedure and 4-12 months later he would return to fill in the gaps.  To have a full set of hair, 3 procedures of about the same number of grafts was required.  So, each procedure would do about 30% density.  Further, a front would take 1200 grafts, the top, (middle area), would take 1200 grafts, and the back area  would take 1200 grafts.  Thus, if we were to apply this same concept to you.... a case of about 2400 grafts would give you that third procedure, and - by definition - fuller density....but.... You seem to have a very conservative hairline.  So 2000-2200 grafts?  Like I've told patients in the past, do as many grafts as you can afford - based on whatever the recommendation of the doctor is. Something to keep in mind is elasticity.  I realize you've done FUE...But a couple of things to consider.  FUT is in play given you keep your hair on the lengthier side.  You've had no FUT before so your elasticity should be intact.  Typically the cost is less and you can always put FUE grafts on the scar in the future. I would at least, so you can discuss all your options, talk to the doctor and see what he says and recommends. Are you doing any medical therapy to help you retain the native stuff?  Remember, if you've lost - you will continue losing.  A shame to have to return multiple times to replace what you just lost.  
    • Quite a high number of grafts? R u going to post pics and ur story soon? Very curious
