I first came in contact with Dr. Pradeep Sethi when I took my cousin to him for a hair transplant. He had previously been to numerous clinics and was not satisfied, so I decided to accompany him in this visit, as it was near my home and also that I would be interacting with a doctor, not with english savvy relation officers. 
Dr. Pradeep and me established an instant rapport, further strengthened by the fact that we were from the same medical college in Orissa. 
As we became friendlier, Dr. Pradeep insisted on a hair transplant on me, which at my age, 61, I was not too much interested in but the idea of having one excited me. My wife was against this but it was my daughter who egged me on and the next thing I realised, I was on the OT table. I had total faith in Dr. Pradeep and Dr. Arika, as I had seen the results of my cousin and another patient I had brought after that. 
Being a bit apprehensive, I did not want much intervention, so we settled for a front coverage, with a slightly high hairline, as commensurate with my age. 
I must say that Dr. Pradeep and Dr. Arika did a very good job and my appearance was very natural, though, on my insistence, I still had a big forehead and a large bald crown. I had 2023 grafts, taken from the donor area of the back of the scalp for the hairline and the front, and 1240 from the beard, for the vertex region. That was in 2015. 


The pictures are for the before and immediately after of my first procedure in the year 2015:





And following are the pictures of my results after 5 years of the transplantation procedure:



I was so fascinated by their work, their passion, their artistry and the fact that their end result transformed the individual to such a great extent, giving a more youthful look and a great deal of confidence to go with it, so much so that I wanted to join their team, work with them and help them give happiness to others. 
By the end of 2019, I joined Eugenix and that’s the time I had my second transplant and this time, giving the team a free hand, my hairline was lowered and the crown area almost covered. Again, a total of about 2155 grafts were taken. 1955 from the back of the scalp and 200 from the beard. 

The following are the pictures from immediately after the second session:



The following are my pictures from the completion of the third month after the second sitting:


Eugenix has a very good team, with Dr. Arika Bansal and Dr. Pradeep Sethi at the helm, both from the prestigious AIIMS, and the hard working and experienced junior doctors and technicians, each one doing their assigned work with so much dedication and efficiency. Each member is so humble and polite, as a result of which every patient, whether from the far off corners of the country or from other countries, feels so comfortable and at home and each one has praises to offer on leaving, as regards his stay, surgery, and off course, the final results in due course of time.

I hope I can be of help to many who wish to go for transplantation. Also, i am a living example that age is just a mere number and one must live to their heart's content. I will keep posting my progress in hopes to help others with their own questions.

Till then, God bless you all! Stay safe during these tough times.

What a fantastic result! Around 4,000 grafts just from the scalp donor region alone shows that Eugenix knows how to harvest donor grafts at any age. I remember seeing the results after your first procedure and this second procedure, at only three months post op, looks incredible. I look forward to following this thread in the months to come. It gives not only high Norwood patients hope but also us more senior folk that are follicularly challenged! 😉

Thank you for your encouragement. I am sure that I will have a decent growth in the coming months. I will keep updating my progress here.
