Eugenix DHT 3843grafts


Recommended Posts

Hi all

I've mentioned in this forum that i was going to get my procedure done at Eugenix on Nov 14/15th and have asked a few questions on the medication etc. I had received several suggestions to my questions. So thanks for that.

Here is my experience:

After seeing glowing reviews on Eugenix, have pretty much made up mind about this. I was just waiting for the right moment to book a procedure. Luckily i happened to be in India around Nov 1st week for some personal reasons and therefore enquired with Eugenix about the potential dates. My idea was to get the procedure done while i was there in India if i can get a slot. Fortunately someone postponed their procedure from Nov 14th/15th and so this date was made available. I was not 100% about going for the procedure as i had my doubts about medication, covid and the usual nervousness. However after some deliberation i paid the deposit with a view to forfeit it, if i change my mind but did not want to let go off the date. I was asked to get all the blood tests done before hand. I've somehow made up my mind and so booked my tickets to Delhi (had to postpone my travel to UK because of this and had to pay a fortune for flights for changing the dates).

I have arrived in Delhi a day before to be received by somone from Eugenix and was put up in Hilton which was nearby. I was specifically asked to come a day before so i can relax. The usual nerves were there since i did not have a video consulatation before hand with doctors but have only sent my pictures to be given a graft estimate.

Day 1:

I was picked up on Nov 14th morning promptly at 9am and was there in clinic in no time. A technician then asked me some quick questions, handed over some paperwork to sign and was already giving some tablets for PrP i think. I was slightly takenback at the hasty approach and then asked to meet the doctor before i commit for anything. I was asked to wait for a while and shortly afterwards Dr Arika came in to see me. This was the first time i saw the doctor for consultation and i wanted to clarify a fewthings before i went ahead. She clarified some of my questions patiently which eased me a bit. I then finished formalities, paid monies.  Dr Arika said she can give full density with 3500 grafts and hence i paid for that with exclusive package where Dr Arika would be doing the slitting.

I moved on for photo session, Dr Arika came in briefly to discuss the hairline design. I've shown some of my younger pics (when i was 30, am now 42) and she gave me 2 options, conservative hairline with full density incl crown or aggressive hairline with crown later on. I went with former option. All this was done fairly quickly in less than 5 mins i think. Once the photo session is done, hair trim, head wash was done followed by the procedure itself. 

Next thing, i was in  the OT and the first session was a bit painful, was given anasthesia on the scalp, however i was bearing a bit of pain thinking that it was normal. Slitting was done by Dr Arika and the grafting and planting was happenig together. The prelunch session was a bit slow i was oozing quite a bit of blood i think and they could only manage 600 grafts in that session. Lunch was provided in a 30min break. We resumed and Dr Somesh walked in and mentioned something important to me that i am supposed to have zero pain and i can tell them if it pained anywhere on scalp. It comforted me and soon have got the entire scalp checked with more anasthesia and the afternoon procedure went like a breeze. In only a few hours they managed to extract an additional 1320grafts. Around 6.30pm the graft count was 1920. I think Dr Arika came in once in between to ensure things are ok.

Day 2

I was in OT quite early by 10 am and Dr Arika came in shortly to do slitting for the rest and i have re-emphasized to her that if they need more grafts to achieve complete coverage they can go for it, however Dr felt confident that it may not be needed. Besides upon enquiring she also mentioned that i have atleast 2k grafts left if needed for future. This was followed by more grafting and planting. A lunch break was given and the day finished at 5pm with another 1923 grafts for the day.

The total graft count stood at 3843 to 3500 that was initially planned for. Dr Arika reviewed the final design and expressed her satisfaction at the work and i have signed off for the day by paying the remaining amount.

I have stayed an extra 5 days in Delhi to get dressing done on a daily basis and the entire staff was quite polite and friendly.

I have done my headwash on 7th day at home, howeever scabs were  stubborn. I then had followed some advice from here where people rinsed their hair with lukewarm water while gently massaging the scalp and this has gotten rid of scabs in 2nd and 3rd wash.

I'm on day 10 as of writing this and am attaching some of the pics. I still have numbness on the scalp with donor still feeling a bit rough.

These are pre, operated day and day 7,9,10th day pics. The files have been named with the day numbers.

I shall update the pics may be on a monthly basis. Currently i am only taking multivitamins, am soon going to start finax with a total of 1.5mg per wk. 

Thoughts pls. 

I also have a few questions

1. can i apply any oil or moisturiser on scalp as it feels dry particularly donor (feels flaky and still pains a little)

2. When would the planted hairs shed off, was thinking this around 3r week mark - is this right?

3. Any other diet or medication or multivitamins needed for planted hair growth from roots ?

4. Any other precautions to be followed? was told none by Eugenix guys.

Would you be able to go for an aggressive hairline later?which norwood are you and are you restricted by your donor area? Eugenix generally plants low hairlines

@Gatsby - Thanks, will upload a couple of preop pics later on.

@NAVI - Was told there are another 2k grafts left on the back. I went for a more  natural look given i am 42. Going with an aggressive design may suit someone in their 20s, i will be happy getting a full coverage and by growing long hair it may not even look that  conservative. That's my though process.

It's going to look great! 👌

Hi @densehair2016- all looks fantastic and I’m always impressed with how much coverage Eugenix patients get with not a ton of grafts.

I think you made the right choice with the conservative design and full coverage.

True that you can grow longer and the design itself is not even that conservative.

Looking forward to your progress!
