@DrPradeep and @Dr Arika Bansal you both are producing solid results since you both have been recommended on this forum. Personally i am very impressed with the quality of the work your clinic is doing. Please keep them coming. It's really heartening to see clinic from india is producing results which is same standard as some of the surgeons from outside india produces. I just hope you don't stop showcasing your art and skills in front of this community. Good luck

Thank you for your appreciation.

We treat each patient as our own family member and try to give our heart and soul to each surgery. Since we don’t do anything else other than hair transplantation, this is our life line and only source of survival. We can not leave any stone unturned in the procedure. 

We aim at giving:

1) Complete coverage of the bald area (how big the bald area might be) with optimum cosmetically acceptable density.

2) Competely natural looks (no one should be able tell that the planted hair are “planted”)

3) Hair for ever. The transplanted hair should be for ever.

4) The Cosmesis of the donor area should be maintained.

To achieve all the above points we have to work hard on a daily basis upon science, keeping our selves updated with the latest of the world, writing books and articles, training new doctors and above all focused upon “only One thing”.

The encouraging words as feedback from patients keeps us going.

Keep evolving your technique @DrPradeep . I am following your work on this forum and on youtube videos from last two year. I have not made up my mind yet in fact i have been researching since last 17 years. So god knows when i will make up my mind but whatever i decide to do i will keep this forum up to date as this forum has been great help me in preserving my hair till now with the help of medicines.

I have a question for the surgeons.  What are your incision techniques (lateral or saggital)?  Do you ultra-refine single hair grafts for very frontal hairline by actively looking for finer-caliber hairs w/your loops when extracting?

What are your loop magnification levels for extraction?  What is your personal philosophy for smoothing out the very frontal hairline going into the 1st 1/4 inch of the frontal hairline zone?

What density in 2nd surgery can you achieve in the frontal hairline and frontal hairline transitional zone and what % of your patients solicit your services for a 2nd surgery to refine their frontal 1/3rd of vertex and/or hairline zone?

I'm asking for specific reasons 'cause I have really good coverage from my 8.5K FUT's in the mid 90's, 2004 and 2016 and now I am actively searching for surgeons that I want to do my last 2 or 3 FUE procedures (perhaps up to another 5K of remaining grafts - donor left to homogenize my entire scalp somewhat and add frontal 1/3rd of vertex density and then a final 'tweak' of the very frontal hairiline.

I have a question for the surgeons.  What are your incision techniques (lateral or saggital)?  Do you ultra-refine single hair grafts for very frontal hairline by actively looking for finer-caliber hairs w/your loops when extracting?

Answer: We use both lateral and saggital slits. Dr Arika uses lateral and Dr Pradeep uses saggital ones. We usually get 250-300 single follicle grafts during a procedure of 3000 plus grafts session. These many single follicles are enough for the hairline, usually. Sometimes when we donot get these many singles then we actively split some grafts into singles under 8x magnification.

What are your loop magnification levels for extraction?  What is your personal philosophy for smoothing out the very frontal hairline going into the 1st 1/4 inch of the frontal hairline zone?

Answer: We use 5x Carl Zeiss loupes for graft extraction. We use single follicles for 3-4 rows on the hairline front to have a natural look. The hairline should have "see through" appearance for at least 0.5 cm. After that there should be dense packing. 

What density in 2nd surgery can you achieve in the frontal hairline and frontal hairline transitional zone and what % of your patients solicit your services for a 2nd surgery to refine their frontal 1/3rd of vertex and/or hairline zone?

Answer: We usually never do a second surgery to augment the density in the hairline! Most of our patients are happy with the first time procedure. We give a cosmetically acceptable density. You can check our gallery section in our website www.eugenix.in to see our density achieved in first sitting.

    • 4 weeks/1month. I don’t know which format is better. Weeks are more accurate while months make me feel better. My hair is getting a bit patchy on the temples and parts of my scalp. I know me sleeping on my sides doesn’t help keep the transplanted hair, but I know members advocate that after 10 days the HT is “locked in”. I’ve seen members loose most of their HT hair in the first 3 months, and I’ve already accepted this destiny. I keep my expectations low, but I do keep my spirits up – This is the best time in my personal and professional life to have this procedure done. This is what I want, from the artist I wanted. I am happier now than I was before.   Feel free to ask questions. I genuinely appreciate feedback. If there is something you recommend, or see something I can benefit from, please post it. I got 90% of my information from honest members like yourselves, including the unmentioned redditor. Someone like myself could read this and decide to start their HT journey. I want to make it easy for men to lose the stigma against cosmetic surgery by understanding what to look for in a doctor and what a GOOD or BAD procedure looks like. Thank you for your contributions. I hope the donor area is "discolored" due to the hair dye of the transplant. I will get a haircut in 2 weeks, before my next update. I will know for certain if it's my head, or if I've been thinning rapidly at the crown/top.
    • Two weeks post op. I was just finishing up a full scale molt on my head. I showed a few people, and it didn’t register with me at the time. One asked, “Yeah, I can see the HT, but what’s the white stuff on your head?” It was after I told him that I kept my hat on for shedding reasons. I realized after the fact he was referring to my scabs that float above my head HAHA! Nothing crazy to report. Just that my head was red. I know that the redness stays for months, so it is what it is. I’ve already at that point resigned to the ugly duckling phase… Even before it begins. I had since started the Fin and minoxidil. I also took photos 1 week out. 1 week post op first, then the two week ones.
    • @fespafer looking good, best of luck 👍 i look forward to seeing the results 
    • An experienced doctor can provide you with desired result of FUE with grey hair so choosing a doctor wisely is the only solution to avoid the risk of treatment. 
    • SKIP TO “*******************” FOR RESULTS   LONG BACKGROUND STORY WARNING   My journey began when I saw the reddit post: https://i.redd.it/0k9i3r8myk001.jpg . In the comments, I found the link to a poster (who I won’t link, but you could find it yourself) who mentioned that results like Elon had are not only possible, he had one. I went down the rabbit hole. I saw the results that are possible, and common. Quick background: My hairline was receding since I first noticed it at ~15. It wasn’t bad, but I never felt comfortable with my hair short. I noticed acceleration into my early 20s, but I knew it was too early to do anything about it. All of the common advice was to let it develop, and worry about it then. I researched HT when I was 22/23, and google showed me horror stories of 19-year-olds mutilating their scalp with an aggressive hairline and constantly adding more after the fact. I resigned to waiting and seeing. After a few years, the recession stabilized when I was 25/26. I had not known about this site, and so I tried to use Nioxin and minoxidil from Costco, hoping to permanently slow and possibly reverse the hairloss. It didn’t do a great deal. Minoxidil did function like a hair product that kept a shape. I was content to brush my hair to the side, and as long as my SO said I looked fine, I didn’t think much of it. I was never in denial about my hair loss, but like I said, it didn’t seem that bad. My view completely changed when I was at a tailor for a suit. Looking at an angle in that 3-pane mirror, I saw myself from the side. My hair looked like it was drawn on top of my head, rather than coming from my head. I felt vulnerable and embarrassed. I decided to seriously look into a HT. After researching FUE vs FUT, I saw the clear benefits of FUE (very similar to LASIK vs PRK in my opinion) I researched the most recommended doctors, and contacted him. Long story short is: He wanted to do a mix of FUT & FUE. I told him I only wanted FUE. He insisted but conceded. He gave me the quote for 2500 grafts. I view HT as a permanent body modification. Anyone that has ever gotten a tattoo knows that it isn’t the price you pay for a tattoo, it is the artist you get the tattoo from. No one brags about how much they spent, it’s about who the artist was. After brooding on the uneasy feeling of “convincing” an artist of my perspective HT to do an art piece he didn’t want to do, I researched more FUE-only doctors. This is the search that led me to Dr. Bhatti. Long story short again: He told me I needed ~2500 grafts as well. I was contacting both doctors in May 2018. I know that great artists are in high demand, and before I asked if he was available (NOT how much it cost). I told my SO that I was willing to pay double (my local price) for an artist whose portfolio I could see, and whose name I could trust (thanks to this site) if he had availability in Dec/Jan 2019. I was planning on using this time away from college to take a “vacation” where I could get the surgery and recover. Dr. Bhatti said he was available during early Jan, and I immediately booked an appointment with a deposit. Dr. Bhatti’s quote was less than the first quote I received. This was a bonus, not the reason I went to Darling Buds. Obviously I chose to go abroad for the procedure due to costs. I don’t want to compile “unnecessary” costs. I want to be clear that it was a choice of artist. I watched airline prices, and eventually booked my tickets. Booked Lax to Del in September for $456.31 and Del to IXC for $78.01, $534.32 USD round trip total. I am pretty good at finding deals, and am happy to write a post about it if enough ask, if it hasn’t been posted elsewhere. I’ll skip the common details most posters make about travel etc. When I arrived to Dr. Bhatti’s office, I felt that I was at a safe and clean environment. I thought it was all very professional and systematic in following the procedure of bloodwork, paperwork, etc. I really appreciated the one on one time with Dr. Bhatti in drawing my hairline and him giving me time to reflect (no pun intended) on the new hairline. I thought his hairline was ABSOLUTELY natural, and matched completely what I thought would restore my ~12 year old self’s hairline. I told Dr. Bhatti that I was considering lowering it further, (because why not?!). After years of hearing forehead and balding jokes, I think we all get a little defensive and never want to be in that same position, if we can avoid it. HT seems to be the best place to ensure it doesn’t happen again. So I told him what I though, and he said it may not look natural, but he would do it if I wanted it. He told me to consider it, and he would redraw the hairline the next day, the day of the procedure, and we would decide then. I showed my mom what I was considering and she said that I should go with the marker, Dr. Bhatti’s proposal. I arrived the next day and in full conviction, happily chose Dr. Bhatti’s recommendation. ************************************** Single: 271 Double: 1268 Triple: 1013 Front transplanted: 2193 Left temple: 186 Right temple: 173 (I am happy to have it broken down to me in that manner. Temples exposed expedited my HT journey, so it is nice to see how many went to that mission.) I always followed the post care instructions Dr. Bhatti’s office provides. The procedure didn’t hurt. When I felt uncomfortable, I told Dr. Bhatti. He then gave me more local antiesthetic. Side note, I only took a few of the pain pills for post op. My scalp was numb, and I didn’t need it. I had no issues in the 3 days post op. I flew on the 4th day. My face swelled during the air travel, not too horrifying, but pretty bad. I was worried about being questioned by US customs when I arrived in LAX. No problem. I was worried about a rental car I rented later in the day, again, no issues. I didn’t take photos. The swelling went away gradually, but was gone after 3 days, no problem (I expected this thanks to this site! I always checked on here to see if others had similar issues). Picture curation is mostly chronological (I hope). Orange Line is "generally" what I was thinking. Just a rough idea of an "aggressive approach" I ultimately did not pursue. Last photo is 72 hours post. Didn't take a post donor pic due to not trying to make myself contort as well as not making my SO look at the carnage!
