6 months DHT in 65 years old Indian Celebrity, Dr Sethi & Dr Bansal, 7000 grafts:

Recommended Posts

Mr Anup Jalota is a 65 year old celebrity singer in India. He was wearing a wig for many years. He had one procedure done 7 years back. Over all the donor was very depleted and the hair quality was poor due to senile thinning. Close to 5000 grafts were planted in the first sitting over 2 days. Around 2500 grafts were extracted from scalp and another 2500 were extracted from the beard on two consecutive days. The posterior aspect of the transplanted area had a mixture of scalp and beard grafts. Another 2000 odd grafts were planted on the crown area after one month, 500 scalp ones and 1500 beard ones. So, a total of 7000 grafts were planted. Astonishingly, most of the grafts started growing straight away with out the initial expected telogen effluvium! (Though we experience this in many patients. Some percentage of grafts they grow straight away. This is due to the DHT concept of FUE we practice, wherein the grafts are planted within few minutes of extraction. We also ensure least root handling by using dull needle implanters in the premade slits.) In this index case we also used trumpet punches which ensured some extra tissue around the follicles. The extra tissue gave the cushion to the nearly friable thin grafts. 
A remarkable growth was seen by 3 months and a great appreciable growth was seen by 6 months.

Very impressive results, honestly some of the best BHT results that I have seen in recent years. One question Dr. Sethi & Dr. Bansal, can the patient straighten the hair with a hair straightening keratin treatment or would this affect the transplanted hair?


I do not provide medical advice, recommendations, all responses are my opinion.

No, not all were below the neckline. We know how to extract the beard grafts above the neckline and going into the cheek and the side locks. Soon, we will be posting cases where we have taken grafts mostly from the beard. Experience over thousands of cases of beard extraction with smallest and sharpest punches ensures a very minimal "technical" scar on the face which most patients can carry without any issue. 

In the index case, we have also taken from side locks. In ageing skin, due to skin laxity, the tiny scars become non noticeable. It is only 6 months for the scars. The scars would be remodelling till 1 year.

Please find the pics of the beard extraction and follow ups in sequence:

Pic 1: Immediately after the first procedure, 2500 grafts were extracted.

Pics 2 and 3: After one month of the extraction.

Pics 4, 5 and 6: Immediately after extraction in second sitting, 1500 were extracted

Pics 7 and 8: After 2 months of first sitting 

Pics 9 and 10: After 6 months of first sitting

Thank you dear @Melvin-Moderator for reviewing the case and appreciating the job. It is only 6 months post procedure. He has grown many but still there are at least 20-30% more hair to grow. The final outcome would be much better. 

Yes, once the hair has grown, anything can be done upon the surface. That won't affect the hair growth.
