EXPERIENCE OF AN IRISHMAN AFTER 6 YEARS RESEARCHING, PUTS HIS TRUST IN DR. PRADEEP SETHI AND DR.ARIKA BANSAL @ EUGENIX INDIA ,FOR HAIR TRANSPLANTATION OF A COMBINATION OF SCALP AND BEARD HAIR.

Recommended Posts

3582 GRAFTS 

I WOULD LIKE TO SHARE MY EXPERIENCE AND RESULTS OF MY OWN HAIR TRANSPLANTATION JOURNEY, TO HELP ANY OF YOU WHO WOULD LIKE TO GAIN SOME KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT IS INVOLVED , AS YOU MAY BE CONSIDERING GOING ON THE SAME JOURNEY .

ABOUT MYSELF  IM FROM IRELAND IN MY 50 s CLASSIFIED NORWOOD 6.  I HAVE BEEN LOSING MY HAIR GRADUALLY FOR 15 YEARS, HOWEVER IT BECAME VERY NOTICABLE TO ME 6 YEARS AGO. I DONT TAKE ANY MEDICATION FOR HAIR LOSS.

RESEARCH  I HAVE BEEN RESEARCHING FOR THE LAST 6 YEARS TO GAIN AS MUCH UNDERSTANDING AND KNOWLEDGE AS POSSIBLE ON HAIR TRANSPLANTATION.  I HAVE BEEN ON THIS FORUM FOR OVER 5 YEARS AND I HAVE GAINED LOTS OF INFORMATION FROM ITS MEMBERS ESPECIALLY THOSE MEMBERS THAT HAVE HAD A HAIR TRANSPLANTATION THEMSELVES . I HAVE CHECKED OUT YOU TUBE TO SEE DIFFERENT CLINICS AND DOCTORS AND PATIENT RESULTS. I VISITED CLINICS HERE IN IRELAND, CONTACTED CLINICS IN AMERICA AND CANADA , AND ALSO EUROPE.  I SPOKE TO PAST PATIENTS AND FUTURE PATIENTS , I ALSO TRAVELLED OVER TO LONDON FROM IRELAND A FEW TIMES TO MEET SOME TOP DOCTORS .

WHY EUGENIX DURING MY RESEARCH I SAW PATIENT RESULTS AND TESTIMONIALS ON YOU TUBE ABOUT EUGENIX WHICH WERE REALLY IMPRESSIVE. I ALSO SAW MANY VIDEOS OF THE 2 FOUNDING DOCTORS DR.PRADEEP SETHI AND DR. ARIKA BANSAL.    DR. PRADEEP AND DR.ARIKA EXPLAINED MANY DIFFERENT AREAS ON THE SUBJECT OF HAIR TRANSPLANTATION WHICH WAS REALLY INFORMATIVE.  SOME TIME LATER DR.PRADEEP AND DR.ARIKA WERE RECOMMENDED ON THIS FORUM WHERE THEIR PATIENTS SHOWED SOME OUTSTANDING RESULTS, NOT JUST FROM SCALP DONER BUT ALSO FROM  BEARD DONER ALSO. OTHER PATIENTS THAT HAVE GONE TO EUGENIX HAD POSTED IMPRESSIVE RESULTS ALSO. SO ALL OF THIS WAS GREAT PROOF THAT THESE 2 DOCTORS ARE HIGHLY SKILLED AND FURTHERMORE HAVE INVENTED THE DHT TECHNIQUE , DIRECT HAIR TRANSPLANTATION , AS THEIR IS SIMULTANEOUSLY EXTRACTIONS AND IMPLANTATION OF THE GRAFTS WHICH GREATLY REDUCEDS THE OUT OF BODY TIME MY GRAFTS WOULD BE SUBJECTED TO , MAYBE AT TIMES GRAFTS MIGHT BE OUT OF THE BODY FOR 20 MINUTES OR SO ALSO WHICH IS NOT VERY LONG.THE DOCTORS ALSO WROTE AN EXCELLENT BOOK ..STEP BY STEP HAIR TRANSPLANTATION. ALONG WITH THIS EUGENIX HAVE BUILT SOME STATE OF THE ART CLINICS WITH THE VERY BEST OF EQUIPMENT INCLUDING EXCEPTIONALLY HIGH MAGNIFICATION LENSES WHICH ARE REALLY IMPORTANT. ALL OF THE ABOVE ALONG WITH 2 DOCTORS WITH THE HIGHEST OF CREDENTIALS IN THIS FIELD, ALONG WITH MARVELOUS PATIENT RESULTS PROMPED ME TO REALLY CONSIDER DR.PRADEEP AND DR.ARIKA @  EUGENIX  AND AT THE TIME BOTH DOCTORS WERE PLANNING TO COME TO THE UK FOR A CONFERENCE ON HAIR RESTORATION , SO I ARRANGED TO GO TO LONDON TO MEET THEM BOTH . I FOUND DR.PRADEEP AND DR.ARIKA TO BE REALLY NICE GENUINE PEOPLE WHO HAD A GREAT PASSION FOR WHAT THEY DONE , AND THEY ARE ONLY FOCUSSED ON HAIR TRANSPLANTATION , I BELIEVE THEY ARE TRUE LEADERS IN THIS FIELD.  WITH ALL OF THE ABOVE IN MIND AND LOTS MORE I BELIEVE AND PUT MY TRUST IN DR. PRADEEP SETHI AND DR.ARIKA BANSAL AND SUPPORTING DOCTORS AND TEAM @Eugenix Hair Science AS THIS IS MY BEST CHANCE OF A SUCCESSFUL HAIR TRANSPLANTATION.

JOURNEY TO INDIA I CAUGHT A FLIGHT FROM IRELAND TO LONDON ( INSTEAD OF GOING DIRECT FROM IRELAND )AND THEN FLY WITH AIR INDIA FROM HEATHROW DIRECT TO DELHI . WHEN I LANDED AT THE AIRPORT EUGENIX REPRESENTATIVE ABHINAY AND THE DRIVER JALDHAR WERE THERE TO GREET ME AND TAKE ME TO EUGENIX CLINIC. ABHINAY ASKS ME ABOUT HAVING DINNER WHICH I APPRECIATE BUT I HAD PLENTY OF FOOD ON THE FLIGHT. DR.PRADEEP RINGS TO WELCOME ME TO INDIA WHICH WAS A NICE TOUCH ALSO. NELSON RINGS TO ENSURE ALL IS OK AND SLSO ASKS ME ABOUT DINNER WHICH WAS NICE. I ARRIVE AT EUGENIX CLINIC AROUND 12 MIDNIGHT AND A REALLY NICE ROOM IS WAITING FOR ME WITH COFFEE AND BISCUITS PROVIDED, VEEY NICE SITTING AREA IN THE BEDROOM WITH A LARGE ENSUITE . I HAVE A GOOD NIGHTS SLEEP.

D DAY:  I GET UP AND HAVE A SHOWER AND BRECKFAST IS DELIVERED TO THE ROOM BY THE VERY NICE STAFF WHO ENSURE IF THERE IS ANYTHING YOU NEED IT IS NOT A PROBLEM. 

I MEET DR.ARIKA AND DR.PRADEEP DOWNSTAIRS WHO INTRODUCE ME TO DR. SHISHIR. DR. PRADEEP THEN INTRODUCES ME TO ALL THE TEAM WHO IS INVOLVED IN MY SURGERY AND EXPLAINS WHAT EACH MEMBER OF THE TEAM DOES , AND HOW LONG THEY WORK WITH EUGENIX, ALL A VERY LONG TIME , SOME 10 YEARS. I THEN GO THROUGH SOME HEALTH DOCUMENTATION WITH DR.SHISHIR , MOSTLY A QUESTIONNAIRE ABOUT MY OWN HEALTH . BLOOD PRESSURE IS TAKEN. I HAVE A CONVERSATION WITH DR.PRADEEP AND DR.ARIKA ABOUT MY HT REGARDING DONER CAPACITY AND COVERAGE . BLOOD SAMPLES ARE TAKEN ALSO TO BE USED FOR PRP DURING SURGERY.  TIME TO CHANGE MY CLOTHES INTO SOMETHING MORE SUITABLE FOR THE PROCEDURE. THEN ITS INTO THE PHOTOGRAPHY ROOM  WHERE ALL ANGLES OF MY HEAD ARE PHOTOGRAPHED AND HAIR IS COMED THIS WAY AND THAT WAY BY DR. PRADEEP , LOOKING AND CHECKING THE WAY MY HAIR FALLS AND DIRECTION . NEXT ITS THE HAIRLINE DESIGN WHERE DR.PRADEEP MAKES SUGGESTIONS AND DRAWS THE LINE , THEN WE TWEEK IT A LITTLE BIT . NEXT ITS TIME FOR A FREE HAIRCUT . AROUND THIS TIME IM GIVIN SOME MEDICATION IN THE FORM AS A ORAL SEDATIVE ,ORAL PAIN KILLER AND ORAL ANTIBIOTIC AND PROBIOTIC. THEN IT IS INTO THE THEATRE ( OF DREAMS ) WHERE ALL THE TEAM HAS EVERYTHING READY , INCLUDING A FINE BIG TV AND MUSIC PLAYING.  THE SURGERY ROOM IS REALLY CLEAN, AND ITS ONLY THE TEAM AND MYSELF ALLOWED TO BE IN THERE TO PREVENT ANY RISK OF CONTAMINATION.

DR SHISHIR EXPLAINS THAT HE IS GOING TO GIVE ME THE ANAESTHETIC .  I CAN FEEL THIS VIBRATION SENSATION ON MY HEAD AND THE ANAESTHESIA  BEING GIVEN TO MY SCALP AT THE SAME TIME. ITS NOT VERY PAINFUL AS THE VIBRATION SENSATION CLEVERLY TRICKS THE BRAIN INTO NOT THINKING OR FEELING THE PINCHES OF THE NEEDLES.  

DR.PRADEEP MAKES A LITTLE MORE THAN 3000 SLITS ON MY RECIPENT AT VARIOUS DIRECTIONS AND WHICH I DONT FEEL PAINFUL WHATSOEVER.  DR.ARIKA  STARTS THE EXTRACTIONS OF MY DONER ON THE SIDE OF MY HEAD , I DONT FEEL PAIN AND IM COMFORTABLE. ALL THE TECHNICANS ARE WORKING LIKE CLOCKWORK AND EVERYBODY KNOWS THEIR JOB. FROM TIME TO TIME I HEAR THE COUNT OF 100 GRAFTS EXTRACTED AND WRITTEN ON THE BOARD . THE MUSIC IS ON IN THE BACKGROUND AND IM COMFORTABLE, AND AS THE MORNING PROGRESSES I HEAR ..100  .....100  AND SO ON. SINGLE GRAFTS ARE PLACED ONLY ON THE HAIRLINE. GRAFTS ARE PLACED SIMULTANEOUSLY TO ENSURE OUT OF BODY TIME IS REDUCED AND WHERE IT DOSENT HAPPEN GRAFTS ARE OUT OF BODY FOR THE MINIMUM TIME POSSIBLE . LUNCH BREAK  AND SOME REALLY NICE FOOD AND COFFEE PROVIDED IN A NICE ROOM JUST OFF THE SURGERY ROOM.

BACK ON THE TABLE AGAIN AND MORE EXTRACTIONS WITH A MOTORISED PUNCH OF O.9 MM BY DR.ARIKA.  WHEN  WE FINISHED SURGERY FOR THE DAY  1960 GRAFTS FROM THE SCALP WERE EXTRACTED AND IMPLANTED INTO THE FRONT RECIPENT AREA. I WAS GIVEN MORE MEDICATION AS A PRECAUTION IN THE FORM OF ORAL ANTIBIOTICS AND PAIN KILLER AND PROBIOTIC TO BE TAKEN WITH MEALS IN THE EVENING AND BRECKFAST NEXT MORNING. SPRAY SALINE EVERY 2 HOURS ON THE RECIPENT , WHEN YOU GO TO BED YOU DONT HAVE TO DO IT.

 IM FEELING GOOD THAT DAY 1 IS OUT OF THE WAY AND HAVE A SHOWER , BUT NO WATER ON THE HEAD OF COURSE. DR. PRADEEP VERY KINDLY TAKES ANOTHER PATIENT AND MYSELF OUT TO DINNER FOR THE EVENING TO A REALLY NICE RESTAURANT.  A LOOSE CAP OR SIMILAR IS WORN WHEN OUTDOORS TO PREVENT THE RISK OF INFECTION. I ARRIVE BACK AT THE CLINIC , HAVE A GOOD NIGHTS SLEEP,  EVEN THOUGH INSTRUCTED TO SLEEP ON MY BACK SO TO NOT DAMAGE THE NEWLY IMPLANTED GRAFTS ON THE FRONT.

DAY 2 : HAVE BRECKFAST DELIVERED TO THE ROOM WHICH CONSISTED OF SCRAMBLED EGG AND TOAST AND COFFEE. ARRIVED DOWNSTAIRS AND MET THE DOCTORS AND TECHNICIANS. I HAD A DISCUSSION WITH DR.PRADEEP AND DR.ARIKA AND WE DECIDED TO PLAN FOR SCALP AND BEARD GRAFTS. THE BEARD GRAFTS WOULD BE EXTRACTED AND IMPLANTED INTO MY MID SCALP ALONG WITH MIXING THE BEARD GRAFTS WITH SCALP GRAFTS IN THE AREA. THIS WOULD HELP TO GIVE MORE DENSITY AS BEARD GRAFTS ARE GOOD FOR DENSITY, ALSO I WOULD BE HOLDING ONTO MORE OF MY SCALP DONER GRAFTS WHEN REQUIRED FOR THE CROWN WHICH I PLAN TO DO ON ANOTHER VISIT. 

BACK ON THE TABLE AND DR. SHISHIR GIVES THE ANAESTHETIC AND DR.ARIKA CARRIES OUT THE EXTRACTIONS OF MY SCALP GRAFTS . TV IS PLAYING WITH MUSIC AND ALL IS GOOD. NO PAIN , NOW AND AGAIN I DID FEEL A PINCH HERE AND THERE AND THE DOCTOR WILL STRAIGHT AWAY GIVE YOU MORE ANAESTHETIC  . LUNCH BREAK. LOVELY LUNCH PROVIDED AGAIN  TODAY, ARRANGED BY NELSON WHO ASKED ME EARLIER WHAT I WANTED. YOU CAN HAVE A CHOICE OF ANYTHING YOU WISH , WHICH  I HAD A SELECTION OF A LOT OF FOOD,  I COULDN'T FINISH. 

AFTER LUNCH IT WAS TIME TO DO THE BEARD GRAFTS .  DR.ARIKA MADE SOME MORE SLITS TOWARDS THE BACK TO ACCOMADATE MORE SCALP AND BEARD GRAFTS WHICH AND THIS POINT WE KNEW WOULD BE MORE THAN 3000 SLITS THAT DR PRADEEP HAD DONE YESTERDAY. ANAESTHETIC WAS GIVEN UNDER THE CHIN BY DR.SHISHIR . FELT A LITTLE PINCH BUT NOTHING OUT OF THE WAY. EXTRACTIONS WE CARRIED OUT BY DR. ARIKA USING A  0.7MM MOTORISED PUNCH. ALL WENT VERY WELL. AT THE END OF TODAY : SCALP DONER 926 GRAFTS . BEARD GRAFTS 696

. = 1622 GRAFTS TODAY + 1960 GRAFTS YESTERDAY 

GRAND TOTAL = 3582 GRAFTS.  DR. PRADEEP LOOKS OVER THINGS TO ENSURE ALL IS OK, AS HE DID THROUGHOUT THE PREVIOUS DAY ALSO.   DR. ARIKA AND DR.SHISHIR AND ALL THE TECHNICANS HAS VAST EXPERIENCE AND REALLY WORKED GREAT AS A WHOLE TEAM SO ALL IS GOOD .

IM TAKEN INTO THE PHOTOGRAPHY ROOM FOR MORE PHOTOGRAPHS TAKEN BY DR. PRADEEP WITH AN ASSISTANT . IM VERY HAPPY THAT ALL IS OVER.

I WAS  GIVEN MEDICATION TO TAKE WITH DINNER AND AFTER BRECKFAST ON THE MORNING.

DR. PRADEEP VERY GENEROUSLY GIVES HIS TIME AND TAKES NE OUT TO DINNER TO A RESTAURANT FOR A DELICIOUS MEAL WHICH IM STILL THINKING ABOUT, AND WILL VISIT AGAIN WHEN IM BACK TO DO MY CROWN. TAKE THE MEDICATION ,I HAVE A GREAT NIGHTS SLEEP.

DAY 3  BRECKFAST DELIVERED TO THE ROOM AGAIN. TAKE THE MEDICATION RECOMMENDED. I GO DOWNSTAIRS AND I MEET DR.ARIKA AND DR.SHISHIR AND DR.PRADEEP AND ENSURE ALL IS OK. ONE OF THE TECHNICANS PUTS BEATALINE SCRUB AND OINTMENT ON MY DONER AS PART OF THE DAILY REGIMENT FOR THE NEXT 7 DAYS. 

MEDICATION FOR 7 DAYS:  1 ANTIBIOTIC 3 TIMES DAILY , 1 PAIN KILLER 3 TIMES DAILY . 1 PROBIOTIC . BEATALINE SCRUB ON THE DONER IN THE MORNING. ANTISEPTIC OINTMENT TWICE DAILY.  SPRAY SALINE SPRAY EVERY 2 HOURS. MASSAGE THE FOREHEAD REGULARY TO PREVENT SWELLING .  THERE IS ONE OTHER TABLET TO TAKE DAILY HOWEVER I CANT REMEMBER WHAT IT IS THIS MOMENT IN TIME.  I WAS GIVEN SALINE SPRAY AND A BACK UP OF A SMALL BOTTLE OF SPRAYTO TAKE ON THE PLANE , WITH A LETTER FROM EUGENIX EXPLAINING THAT I HAD A HAIR TRANSPLANTATION AND WHY I NEEDED IT. THERE WAS NO ISSUE AT ANY AIRPORT. 

DR.PRADEEP SHOWS ME AROUND MORE OF THE CLINIC DOWN STAIRS WHEREVRECEPTION AND OFFICES AND BATHROOMS ARE AND ONE HAS TO BE IMPRESSED HOW CLEAN AN MODERN THE CLINIC IS.

ITS TIME TO GO TO THE AIRPORT FOR HOME , I SAY GOODBYE TO EVERYONE AND WILL BE BACK AGAIN. ABHINAY ACCOMPANIES THE DRIVER JALDHAR AND WE HAVE A GREAT CHAT FOR OUR 25 MINUTE OR SO TRIP TO THE AIRPORT. I CATCH A FLIGHT FROM DELHI TO LONDON .

AFTERCARE BY EUGENIX  . WHEN I ARRIVED IN LONDON, AND GOT TO MY HOTEL DR. PRADEEP RINGS ME TO ASK HOW WAS EVERTHING WHICH WAS A REALLY NICE TOUCH. ALL IS WELL. HE REMINDS ME TO MASSAGE MY FOREHEAD TO HELP PREVENT SWELLING AND TO CONTINUE SPRAYING SALINE ON MY RECIPENT.  EVERY DAY DR.PRADEEP OR A MEMBER OF STAFF HAS BEEN IN TOUCH THROUGH  WHATTS APP VIDEO CALL OR MESSAGES TO ENSURE ALL IS OK . I HAVE TAKEN PICTURES OF MY SCALP AND SENT THEM FOR DR.PRADEEP TO LOOK AT. I MUST ADMIT THE AFTERCARE IS EXCELLENT AS DR.PRADEEP AND EUGENIX  REALLY CARES ABOUT YOUR WELLBEING . THEY SEND VIDEOS OF HEAD WASH AFTER 7 DAYS AND WHAT TO EXPECT LEADING UP TO THIS TIME , BUT ALL IS VERY STRAIGHTFORWARD , IM FEELING GOOD WITH NO PAIN WHATSOEVER.

MY EXPERIENCE WITH DR.PRADEEP AND DR .ARIKA , ALSO DR.SHISHIR AND ALL THE TEAM OF TECHNICIANS , ABHINAY AND NELSON AND ALL THE STAFF WHO PLAYED A ROLE BEFORE MY ARRIVAL, DURING, FOR BREAKFAST AND LUNCH AND COFFEES AND DINNER  AND  ALL THE TEAM WHO ALL SHOWED EXVEPTIONAL WARMTH , FRIENDLINESS AND CARE WITH AMAZING HOSPITALITY WHICH I WILL NEVER FORGET AND WILL BE FOREVER GRATEFUL..THANK YOU SINCERELY.

THANKS TO YOU TO HRN AND ITS LEADERS , WHO ARE DOING A MARVELOUS JOB AND ARE VERY DEDICATED TO MAKING THIS FORUM A GREAT BENIFIT TO EVERYBODY  .  THIS IS THE BEST FORUM IN THE WORLD . ITS MEMBERS ALSO PLAY A GREAT ROLE SO WITHOUT YOU I WOULDN'T BE HERE , SO I THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

Paddy, thank you for a very detailed informative account of your surgery. It sounds like Eugenix was excellent in every way and I appreciate your feedback about their Doctors, Staff and your overall experience.  I also have been thinking about using beard grafts for a future surgery so it's good to know that Eugenix offers this option. I'm looking forward to following your updates and I'm curious to know about the growth of the beard grafts.

It looks like your going to get great results from looking at your pictures and I wish you all the best.

Take care

Brian, Vancouver Canada

 IM FEELING GOOD THAT DAY 1 IS OUT OF THE WAY AND HAVE A SHOWER , BUT NO WATER ON THE HEAD OF COURSE. DR. PRADEEP VERY KINDLY TAKES ANOTHER PATIENT AND MYSELF OUT TO DINNER FOR THE EVENING TO A REALLY NICE RESTAURANT.  A LOOSE CAP OR SIMILAR IS WORN WHEN OUTDOORS TO PREVENT THE RISK OF INFECTION.

4th DAY UPDATE :   IM FEELING GOOD , NO PAIN OR ANYTHING.  AS A PRECAUTION STILL SLEEPING ON MY BACK WITH A NECK PILLOW TO PREVENT TOUCHING THE GRAFTS AGAINST ANYTHING. WILL HAVE TO DO THIS FOR 7 NIGHTS AFTER THE HT. BUT VERY COMFORTABLE WITH THIS AS ITS NOT A PROBLEM FOR ME.

MY DONER AREA IS NOT SURPRISING STILL TENDER , SENSATION HAS COME BACK INTO IT QUITE WELL BUT STILL A LITTLE NUMBNESS HERE AND THERE.

MY RECIPENT HAS STILL NUMBNESS ALL OVER AT THE MOMENT WHICH SHOULD GRADULLY WARE OFF IN THE NEXT FEW DAYS. STILL SHOWING REDNESS AND THE CRUSTS ARE FORMING NOW.

UNDER MY CHIN HAS REALLY COME ON VERY WELL. THE HEALING IS VERY QUICK ON THIS AREA AND I WAS TOLD THIS BY DR.SHISHIR THAT I COULD SHAVE AFTER A WEEK. THERE IS STILL REDNESS THERE NOT SURPRISINGLY, BUT NOBODY WOULD NOTICE IT. THE PUNCH SIZE USED WAS O.7 mm.

IM SPRAYING SALINE SPRAY ON MY RECIPENT EVERY 2 HOURS.

IN THE MORNING BEFORE FOOD IM TAKING A TABLET TO PREVENT ACID BUILDING IN THE STOMACH , I THEN APPLY BEATADINE SOLUTION ON MY DONER AREA  ONCE IN THE MORNING AS ITS AN ANTISEPTIC.I THEN APPLY T BACT ANTISEPTIC OINTMENT IN THE MORNING ALSO IN THE EVENING.

ALSO IM TAKING 1 ANTIBIOTIC TABLET 3 TIMES A DAY WITH MEALS TO PREVENT INFECTION,  1 PAIN KILLER 3 TIMES A DAY WITH FOOD  ( IM NOT IN PAIN BUT AS A PRECAUTION )  ALSO 1 PROBIOTIC TABLET 3 TIMES A DAY WITH FOOD FOR THE DIGESTIVE SYSTEM TO PROVIDE A PROTECTIVE BARRIER IN THE GUT TO RESTORE BALANCE.

DR PRADEEP HAS BEEN IN REGULAR CONTACT WITH ME THROUGH WHATTS APP VIDEO CALLS TO CHECK THAT ALL IS GOOD WHICH IT IS, ALSO EUGENIX HAS SENT ME SHORT VIDEOS ALSO. 

IN THE NEXT FEW DAYS MORE CRUSTS WILL BE FORMING ON MY RECIPENT AND ON THE 7TH DAY MY HEAD WASH WILL BEGIN TO REMOVE THOSE CRUSTS 

ALL THE BEST FOR NOW

3582 GRAFTS 

I WOULD LIKE TO SHARE MY EXPERIENCE AND RESULTS OF MY OWN HAIR TRANSPLANTATION JOURNEY, TO HELP ANY OF YOU WHO WOULD LIKE TO GAIN SOME KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT IS INVOLVED , AS YOU MAY BE CONSIDERING GOING ON THE SAME JOURNEY .

ABOUT MYSELF  IM FROM IRELAND IN MY 50 s CLASSIFIED NORWOOD 6.  I HAVE BEEN LOSING MY HAIR GRADUALLY FOR 15 YEARS, HOWEVER IT BECAME VERY NOTICABLE TO ME 6 YEARS AGO. I DONT TAKE ANY MEDICATION FOR HAIR LOSS.

RESEARCH  I HAVE BEEN RESEARCHING FOR THE LAST 6 YEARS TO GAIN AS MUCH UNDERSTANDING AND KNOWLEDGE AS POSSIBLE ON HAIR TRANSPLANTATION.  I HAVE BEEN ON THIS FORUM FOR OVER 5 YEARS AND I HAVE GAINED LOTS OF INFORMATION FROM ITS MEMBERS ESPECIALLY THOSE MEMBERS THAT HAVE HAD A HAIR TRANSPLANTATION THEMSELVES . I HAVE CHECKED OUT YOU TUBE TO SEE DIFFERENT CLINICS AND DOCTORS AND PATIENT RESULTS. I VISITED CLINICS HERE IN IRELAND, CONTACTED CLINICS IN AMERICA AND CANADA , AND ALSO EUROPE.  I SPOKE TO PAST PATIENTS AND FUTURE PATIENTS , I ALSO TRAVELLED OVER TO LONDON FROM IRELAND A FEW TIMES TO MEET SOME TOP DOCTORS .

WHY EUGENIX DURING MY RESEARCH I SAW PATIENT RESULTS AND TESTIMONIALS ON YOU TUBE ABOUT EUGENIX WHICH WERE REALLY IMPRESSIVE. I ALSO SAW MANY VIDEOS OF THE 2 FOUNDING DOCTORS DR.PRADEEP SETHI AND DR. ARIKA BANSAL.    DR. PRADEEP AND DR.ARIKA EXPLAINED MANY DIFFERENT AREAS ON THE SUBJECT OF HAIR TRANSPLANTATION WHICH WAS REALLY INFORMATIVE.  SOME TIME LATER DR.PRADEEP AND DR.ARIKA WERE RECOMMENDED ON THIS FORUM WHERE THEIR PATIENTS SHOWED SOME OUTSTANDING RESULTS, NOT JUST FROM SCALP DONER BUT ALSO FROM  BEARD DONER ALSO. OTHER PATIENTS THAT HAVE GONE TO EUGENIX HAD POSTED IMPRESSIVE RESULTS ALSO. SO ALL OF THIS WAS GREAT PROOF THAT THESE 2 DOCTORS ARE HIGHLY SKILLED AND FURTHERMORE HAVE INVENTED THE DHT TECHNIQUE , DIRECT HAIR TRANSPLANTATION , AS THEIR IS SIMULTANEOUSLY EXTRACTIONS AND IMPLANTATION OF THE GRAFTS WHICH GREATLY REDUCEDS THE OUT OF BODY TIME MY GRAFTS WOULD BE SUBJECTED TO , MAYBE AT TIMES GRAFTS MIGHT BE OUT OF THE BODY FOR 20 MINUTES OR SO ALSO WHICH IS NOT VERY LONG.THE DOCTORS ALSO WROTE AN EXCELLENT BOOK ..STEP BY STEP HAIR TRANSPLANTATION. ALONG WITH THIS EUGENIX HAVE BUILT SOME STATE OF THE ART CLINICS WITH THE VERY BEST OF EQUIPMENT INCLUDING EXCEPTIONALLY HIGH MAGNIFICATION LENSES WHICH ARE REALLY IMPORTANT. ALL OF THE ABOVE ALONG WITH 2 DOCTORS WITH THE HIGHEST OF CREDENTIALS IN THIS FIELD, ALONG WITH MARVELOUS PATIENT RESULTS PROMPED ME TO REALLY CONSIDER DR.PRADEEP AND DR.ARIKA @  EUGENIX  AND AT THE TIME BOTH DOCTORS WERE PLANNING TO COME TO THE UK FOR A CONFERENCE ON HAIR RESTORATION , SO I ARRANGED TO GO TO LONDON TO MEET THEM BOTH . I FOUND DR.PRADEEP AND DR.ARIKA TO BE REALLY NICE GENUINE PEOPLE WHO HAD A GREAT PASSION FOR WHAT THEY DONE , AND THEY ARE ONLY FOCUSSED ON HAIR TRANSPLANTATION , I BELIEVE THEY ARE TRUE LEADERS IN THIS FIELD.  WITH ALL OF THE ABOVE IN MIND AND LOTS MORE I BELIEVE AND PUT MY TRUST IN DR. PRADEEP SETHI AND DR.ARIKA BANSAL AND SUPPORTING DOCTORS AND TEAM @Eugenix Hair Science AS THIS IS MY BEST CHANCE OF A SUCCESSFUL HAIR TRANSPLANTATION.

JOURNEY TO INDIA I CAUGHT A FLIGHT FROM IRELAND TO LONDON ( INSTEAD OF GOING DIRECT FROM IRELAND )AND THEN FLY WITH AIR INDIA FROM HEATHROW DIRECT TO DELHI . WHEN I LANDED AT THE AIRPORT EUGENIX REPRESENTATIVE ABHINAY AND THE DRIVER JALDHAR WERE THERE TO GREET ME AND TAKE ME TO EUGENIX CLINIC. ABHINAY ASKS ME ABOUT HAVING DINNER WHICH I APPRECIATE BUT I HAD PLENTY OF FOOD ON THE FLIGHT. DR.PRADEEP RINGS TO WELCOME ME TO INDIA WHICH WAS A NICE TOUCH ALSO. NELSON RINGS TO ENSURE ALL IS OK AND SLSO ASKS ME ABOUT DINNER WHICH WAS NICE. I ARRIVE AT EUGENIX CLINIC AROUND 12 MIDNIGHT AND A REALLY NICE ROOM IS WAITING FOR ME WITH COFFEE AND BISCUITS PROVIDED, VEEY NICE SITTING AREA IN THE BEDROOM WITH A LARGE ENSUITE . I HAVE A GOOD NIGHTS SLEEP.

D DAY:  I GET UP AND HAVE A SHOWER AND BRECKFAST IS DELIVERED TO THE ROOM BY THE VERY NICE STAFF WHO ENSURE IF THERE IS ANYTHING YOU NEED IT IS NOT A PROBLEM. 

I MEET DR.ARIKA AND DR.PRADEEP DOWNSTAIRS WHO INTRODUCE ME TO DR. SHISHIR. DR. PRADEEP THEN INTRODUCES ME TO ALL THE TEAM WHO IS INVOLVED IN MY SURGERY AND EXPLAINS WHAT EACH MEMBER OF THE TEAM DOES , AND HOW LONG THEY WORK WITH EUGENIX, ALL A VERY LONG TIME , SOME 10 YEARS. I THEN GO THROUGH SOME HEALTH DOCUMENTATION WITH DR.SHISHIR , MOSTLY A QUESTIONNAIRE ABOUT MY OWN HEALTH . BLOOD PRESSURE IS TAKEN. I HAVE A CONVERSATION WITH DR.PRADEEP AND DR.ARIKA ABOUT MY HT REGARDING DONER CAPACITY AND COVERAGE . BLOOD SAMPLES ARE TAKEN ALSO TO BE USED FOR PRP DURING SURGERY.  TIME TO CHANGE MY CLOTHES INTO SOMETHING MORE SUITABLE FOR THE PROCEDURE. THEN ITS INTO THE PHOTOGRAPHY ROOM  WHERE ALL ANGLES OF MY HEAD ARE PHOTOGRAPHED AND HAIR IS COMED THIS WAY AND THAT WAY BY DR. PRADEEP , LOOKING AND CHECKING THE WAY MY HAIR FALLS AND DIRECTION . NEXT ITS THE HAIRLINE DESIGN WHERE DR.PRADEEP MAKES SUGGESTIONS AND DRAWS THE LINE , THEN WE TWEEK IT A LITTLE BIT . NEXT ITS TIME FOR A FREE HAIRCUT . AROUND THIS TIME IM GIVIN SOME MEDICATION IN THE FORM AS A ORAL SEDATIVE ,ORAL PAIN KILLER AND ORAL ANTIBIOTIC AND PROBIOTIC. THEN IT IS INTO THE THEATRE ( OF DREAMS ) WHERE ALL THE TEAM HAS EVERYTHING READY , INCLUDING A FINE BIG TV AND MUSIC PLAYING.  THE SURGERY ROOM IS REALLY CLEAN, AND ITS ONLY THE TEAM AND MYSELF ALLOWED TO BE IN THERE TO PREVENT ANY RISK OF CONTAMINATION.

DR SHISHIR EXPLAINS THAT HE IS GOING TO GIVE ME THE ANAESTHETIC .  I CAN FEEL THIS VIBRATION SENSATION ON MY HEAD AND THE ANAESTHESIA  BEING GIVEN TO MY SCALP AT THE SAME TIME. ITS NOT VERY PAINFUL AS THE VIBRATION SENSATION CLEVERLY TRICKS THE BRAIN INTO NOT THINKING OR FEELING THE PINCHES OF THE NEEDLES.  

DR.PRADEEP MAKES A LITTLE MORE THAN 3000 SLITS ON MY RECIPENT AT VARIOUS DIRECTIONS AND WHICH I DONT FEEL PAINFUL WHATSOEVER.  DR.ARIKA  STARTS THE EXTRACTIONS OF MY DONER ON THE SIDE OF MY HEAD , I DONT FEEL PAIN AND IM COMFORTABLE. ALL THE TECHNICANS ARE WORKING LIKE CLOCKWORK AND EVERYBODY KNOWS THEIR JOB. FROM TIME TO TIME I HEAR THE COUNT OF 100 GRAFTS EXTRACTED AND WRITTEN ON THE BOARD . THE MUSIC IS ON IN THE BACKGROUND AND IM COMFORTABLE, AND AS THE MORNING PROGRESSES I HEAR ..100  .....100  AND SO ON. SINGLE GRAFTS ARE PLACED ONLY ON THE HAIRLINE. GRAFTS ARE PLACED SIMULTANEOUSLY TO ENSURE OUT OF BODY TIME IS REDUCED AND WHERE IT DOSENT HAPPEN GRAFTS ARE OUT OF BODY FOR THE MINIMUM TIME POSSIBLE . LUNCH BREAK  AND SOME REALLY NICE FOOD AND COFFEE PROVIDED IN A NICE ROOM JUST OFF THE SURGERY ROOM.

BACK ON THE TABLE AGAIN AND MORE EXTRACTIONS WITH A MOTORISED PUNCH OF O.9 MM BY DR.ARIKA.  WHEN  WE FINISHED SURGERY FOR THE DAY  1960 GRAFTS FROM THE SCALP WERE EXTRACTED AND IMPLANTED INTO THE FRONT RECIPENT AREA. I WAS GIVEN MORE MEDICATION AS A PRECAUTION IN THE FORM OF ORAL ANTIBIOTICS AND PAIN KILLER AND PROBIOTIC TO BE TAKEN WITH MEALS IN THE EVENING AND BRECKFAST NEXT MORNING. SPRAY SALINE EVERY 2 HOURS ON THE RECIPENT , WHEN YOU GO TO BED YOU DONT HAVE TO DO IT.

 IM FEELING GOOD THAT DAY 1 IS OUT OF THE WAY AND HAVE A SHOWER , BUT NO WATER ON THE HEAD OF COURSE. DR. PRADEEP VERY KINDLY TAKES ANOTHER PATIENT AND MYSELF OUT TO DINNER FOR THE EVENING TO A REALLY NICE RESTAURANT.  A LOOSE CAP OR SIMILAR IS WORN WHEN OUTDOORS TO PREVENT THE RISK OF INFECTION. I ARRIVE BACK AT THE CLINIC , HAVE A GOOD NIGHTS SLEEP,  EVEN THOUGH INSTRUCTED TO SLEEP ON MY BACK SO TO NOT DAMAGE THE NEWLY IMPLANTED GRAFTS ON THE FRONT.

DAY 2 : HAVE BRECKFAST DELIVERED TO THE ROOM WHICH CONSISTED OF SCRAMBLED EGG AND TOAST AND COFFEE. ARRIVED DOWNSTAIRS AND MET THE DOCTORS AND TECHNICIANS. I HAD A DISCUSSION WITH DR.PRADEEP AND DR.ARIKA AND WE DECIDED TO PLAN FOR SCALP AND BEARD GRAFTS. THE BEARD GRAFTS WOULD BE EXTRACTED AND IMPLANTED INTO MY MID SCALP ALONG WITH MIXING THE BEARD GRAFTS WITH SCALP GRAFTS IN THE AREA. THIS WOULD HELP TO GIVE MORE DENSITY AS BEARD GRAFTS ARE GOOD FOR DENSITY, ALSO I WOULD BE HOLDING ONTO MORE OF MY SCALP DONER GRAFTS WHEN REQUIRED FOR THE CROWN WHICH I PLAN TO DO ON ANOTHER VISIT. 

BACK ON THE TABLE AND DR. SHISHIR GIVES THE ANAESTHETIC AND DR.ARIKA CARRIES OUT THE EXTRACTIONS OF MY SCALP GRAFTS . TV IS PLAYING WITH MUSIC AND ALL IS GOOD. NO PAIN , NOW AND AGAIN I DID FEEL A PINCH HERE AND THERE AND THE DOCTOR WILL STRAIGHT AWAY GIVE YOU MORE ANAESTHETIC  . LUNCH BREAK. LOVELY LUNCH PROVIDED AGAIN  TODAY, ARRANGED BY NELSON WHO ASKED ME EARLIER WHAT I WANTED. YOU CAN HAVE A CHOICE OF ANYTHING YOU WISH , WHICH  I HAD A SELECTION OF A LOT OF FOOD,  I COULDN'T FINISH. 

AFTER LUNCH IT WAS TIME TO DO THE BEARD GRAFTS .  DR.ARIKA MADE SOME MORE SLITS TOWARDS THE BACK TO ACCOMADATE MORE SCALP AND BEARD GRAFTS WHICH AND THIS POINT WE KNEW WOULD BE MORE THAN 3000 SLITS THAT DR PRADEEP HAD DONE YESTERDAY. ANAESTHETIC WAS GIVEN UNDER THE CHIN BY DR.SHISHIR . FELT A LITTLE PINCH BUT NOTHING OUT OF THE WAY. EXTRACTIONS WE CARRIED OUT BY DR. ARIKA USING A  0.7MM MOTORISED PUNCH. ALL WENT VERY WELL. AT THE END OF TODAY : SCALP DONER 926 GRAFTS . BEARD GRAFTS 696

. = 1622 GRAFTS TODAY + 1960 GRAFTS YESTERDAY 

GRAND TOTAL = 3582 GRAFTS.  DR. PRADEEP LOOKS OVER THINGS TO ENSURE ALL IS OK, AS HE DID THROUGHOUT THE PREVIOUS DAY ALSO.   DR. ARIKA AND DR.SHISHIR AND ALL THE TECHNICANS HAS VAST EXPERIENCE AND REALLY WORKED GREAT AS A WHOLE TEAM SO ALL IS GOOD .

IM TAKEN INTO THE PHOTOGRAPHY ROOM FOR MORE PHOTOGRAPHS TAKEN BY DR. PRADEEP WITH AN ASSISTANT . IM VERY HAPPY THAT ALL IS OVER.

I WAS  GIVEN MEDICATION TO TAKE WITH DINNER AND AFTER BRECKFAST ON THE MORNING.

DR. PRADEEP VERY GENEROUSLY GIVES HIS TIME AND TAKES NE OUT TO DINNER TO A RESTAURANT FOR A DELICIOUS MEAL WHICH IM STILL THINKING ABOUT, AND WILL VISIT AGAIN WHEN IM BACK TO DO MY CROWN. TAKE THE MEDICATION ,I HAVE A GREAT NIGHTS SLEEP.

DAY 3  BRECKFAST DELIVERED TO THE ROOM AGAIN. TAKE THE MEDICATION RECOMMENDED. I GO DOWNSTAIRS AND I MEET DR.ARIKA AND DR.SHISHIR AND DR.PRADEEP AND ENSURE ALL IS OK. ONE OF THE TECHNICANS PUTS BEATALINE SCRUB AND OINTMENT ON MY DONER AS PART OF THE DAILY REGIMENT FOR THE NEXT 7 DAYS. 

MEDICATION FOR 7 DAYS:  1 ANTIBIOTIC 3 TIMES DAILY , 1 PAIN KILLER 3 TIMES DAILY . 1 PROBIOTIC . BEATALINE SCRUB ON THE DONER IN THE MORNING. ANTISEPTIC OINTMENT TWICE DAILY.  SPRAY SALINE SPRAY EVERY 2 HOURS. MASSAGE THE FOREHEAD REGULARY TO PREVENT SWELLING .  THERE IS ONE OTHER TABLET TO TAKE DAILY HOWEVER I CANT REMEMBER WHAT IT IS THIS MOMENT IN TIME.  I WAS GIVEN SALINE SPRAY AND A BACK UP OF A SMALL BOTTLE OF SPRAYTO TAKE ON THE PLANE , WITH A LETTER FROM EUGENIX EXPLAINING THAT I HAD A HAIR TRANSPLANTATION AND WHY I NEEDED IT. THERE WAS NO ISSUE AT ANY AIRPORT. 

DR.PRADEEP SHOWS ME AROUND MORE OF THE CLINIC DOWN STAIRS WHEREVRECEPTION AND OFFICES AND BATHROOMS ARE AND ONE HAS TO BE IMPRESSED HOW CLEAN AN MODERN THE CLINIC IS.

ITS TIME TO GO TO THE AIRPORT FOR HOME , I SAY GOODBYE TO EVERYONE AND WILL BE BACK AGAIN. ABHINAY ACCOMPANIES THE DRIVER JALDHAR AND WE HAVE A GREAT CHAT FOR OUR 25 MINUTE OR SO TRIP TO THE AIRPORT. I CATCH A FLIGHT FROM DELHI TO LONDON .

AFTERCARE BY EUGENIX  . WHEN I ARRIVED IN LONDON, AND GOT TO MY HOTEL DR. PRADEEP RINGS ME TO ASK HOW WAS EVERTHING WHICH WAS A REALLY NICE TOUCH. ALL IS WELL. HE REMINDS ME TO MASSAGE MY FOREHEAD TO HELP PREVENT SWELLING AND TO CONTINUE SPRAYING SALINE ON MY RECIPENT.  EVERY DAY DR.PRADEEP OR A MEMBER OF STAFF HAS BEEN IN TOUCH THROUGH  WHATTS APP VIDEO CALL OR MESSAGES TO ENSURE ALL IS OK . I HAVE TAKEN PICTURES OF MY SCALP AND SENT THEM FOR DR.PRADEEP TO LOOK AT. I MUST ADMIT THE AFTERCARE IS EXCELLENT AS DR.PRADEEP AND EUGENIX  REALLY CARES ABOUT YOUR WELLBEING . THEY SEND VIDEOS OF HEAD WASH AFTER 7 DAYS AND WHAT TO EXPECT LEADING UP TO THIS TIME , BUT ALL IS VERY STRAIGHTFORWARD , IM FEELING GOOD WITH NO PAIN WHATSOEVER.

MY EXPERIENCE WITH DR.PRADEEP AND DR .ARIKA , ALSO DR.SHISHIR AND ALL THE TEAM OF TECHNICIANS , ABHINAY AND NELSON AND ALL THE STAFF WHO PLAYED A ROLE BEFORE MY ARRIVAL, DURING, FOR BREAKFAST AND LUNCH AND COFFEES AND DINNER  AND  ALL THE TEAM WHO ALL SHOWED EXVEPTIONAL WARMTH , FRIENDLINESS AND CARE WITH AMAZING HOSPITALITY WHICH I WILL NEVER FORGET AND WILL BE FOREVER GRATEFUL..THANK YOU SINCERELY.

Well done Paddy Irishman from a fellow Norwood 6 Irishman ..your feedback and support to fellow users over the last number of months has played a huge part in my decision in also making Eugenix my clinic of choice for my hair Restoration procedure this coming 21/22 December ...my story was so similar to yours with the guts of 10 years researching / Clinic consultations both in Ireland and Uk even the serious consideration of SMP again with consultations in Uk and Dublin ...all the while having to be realistic about my donor ..

My hair characteristics to be frank would be below average ..approx 70 Fu per Sq cm with average 1.9 hairs per FU ...fine and straight .

im looking forward ro sharing with all the community my progress on my return ftom India as I feel it's about time I gave something back to this forum and its members by way of sharing some of my hope and experience ...especially for those who feel that once you've arrived at NW 6 or 7 hair transplant are not an option ...especially with less than ideal scalp donor ..

I like Paddytheirishman am of the view that when you're really looking for the very solution to a high Norwood hair restoration ....Eugenix hair sciences and it's wonderful team are fast becoming the only show in town ...especially with their unrivalled ability to combine beard hair gratis into the.mix..

ill be back in touch end December with progress reports for those that are interested .

Happy and contented growing Paddy and thanks again for such a wonderful and supportive post

Paddy, I'm delighted to your thread. You're the one guy that has been more active on pretty much all other Eugenix threads than myself... and so I took it for granted that once you got your HT done, your thread would become stuff of legend. And you've definitely delivered on that expectation buddy!

Thank you so much for the incredible hair-splitting (no pun intended) detail that you've described, with regard to not only the HT process, but also pretty much every notable detail about every single day that you spent in India, and the Eugenix team's involvement from the moment you arrived to the day you left India. You've pretty much given us (patients who will be having their HT at Eugenix) a manual on what to expect. 

I already had maximum confidence in Eugenix, and your comments have strengthened that confidence even further.

The hairline design, as is always the case with Eugenix, is excellent. The immediate post op photos show that your hairline is super-densely packed with grafts and given the ultra-high survival rate due to Eugenix's DHT method, it's pretty much a foregone conclusion that it's going to be a killer hairline.

I'll be paying my deposit to Eugenix sometime in January (I was initially looking to pay the deposit in April or May, but I've had unexpected success at work!). I just need to get hold of Nelson again, because he seems to have changed his number.

Anyway, I'm genuinely looking forward to seeing your progress. Thank you once again Paddy, for this thread, as well as all of your contributions to this forum :)
