Hair Transplant Surgery in India with a High Success Rate
Genetic hair loss or Androgenetic Alopecia is a condition that has become more common with time and is faced by both men and women. While off the counter products fail to give the results you hope for, hair transplant surgery in India can provide permanent results. A hair transplant surgery is a procedure through which a plastic surgeon extracts hair from a healthy part of the patient’s scalp (at times various parts of the body as well) untouched by the condition and uses those follicles to implant them into the recipient balding area.
Performed under local anaesthesia, hair transplant surgery in India is an outpatient procedure where patients are released on the day itself. Saraswat Hospital has an expert team of surgeons, led by two ABHRS (American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery) certified doctors – Dr Satya Kumar Saraswat and Dr Preeti Saraswat, providing customized solutions to the condition for each patient.
Who Benefits the Most from Undergoing a Hair Transplant Surgery in India?
Hair transplant surgery in India is ideal for those looking forward to improving the appearance and boosting self-confidence in the process. The good candidates for undergoing this surgery include:
- Those suffering from male pattern baldness
- Women who have hair thinning
- Those who have a receding hairline
- Anyone who has lost hair due to scalp or burn injury
- Those suffering from Androgenetic Alopecia
However, you must keep in mind that those with a widespread pattern of hair loss on the scalp, keloid scars, and medically caused hair loss are not eligible for the procedure.
What are the Various Types of Hair Transplant Surgery?
At Saraswat Hospital, our international-board certified doctors are well informed about the latest developments in hair transplant surgery in India and thus come up with customized treatment plans based on the patient’s condition. Among the same, this surgery is performed in various forms of two techniques – FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) and FUE (Follicular Unit Excision).
- Follicular Unit Excision: Also known as Follicular Unit Extraction, this is a technique where the individual follicular grafts are directly extracted from the donor site using a standard FUE machine with a low-RPM and low-torque before implanting them to the recipient site.
- Follicular Unit Transplantation: Now known as the Linear Excision Method or strip surgery, this technique is where a strip of scalp bearing healthy hair follicles are extracted from the back of the head (also known as the donor site) and the area is sutured in a Trichophytic closure. This strip is then placed under a microscope and then slivered into individual follicular grafts which are then implanted into the balding area (also known as the recipient site).
The experts at Saraswat Hospital use the Choi Implanter Pen to make the process quicker as this equipment combines the extraction and implantation into one swift motion, thereby saving a lot of time. The professionals, if required, might also perform a combined FUE+FUT hair transplant procedure that derives the best of both of the techniques to get the best results. We also specialize in several other kinds of hair transplant surgery in India that include:
- DHI (Direct Hair Transplant)
- Combination of FUE and DHI
- Body Hair Transplant
- Special Area Transplant
- Eyelash Hair Transplant
- Eyebrow Hair Transplant
- Unshaven and Long Hair Transplant
- Repair Hair Transplant
At Saraswat Hospital, each patient is taken through a series of examinations such as blood tests and a computerized Trichoscopy analysis to come up with the best course of treatment. A Trichoscopy analysis is a software-based procedure through which the doctor determines the number of follicles in the donor area, the number of healthy follicles that can be extracted, the area to be treated, and the density required to reach the desired results. This also helps the doctors determine which technique of hair transplant surgery would suit the patient the most.
Once the procedure is over and you are in the recovery stage, you might undergo a period of ‘shock loss,’ also known as the ‘shedding phase’ where the tiny follicles might fall out. But, this is a natural step and would last only for some time. As the shedding period is over, the implanted follicles go back to their regular Anagen-Catagen-Telogen routine, thereby only growing to full-length in a few months. Saraswat Hospital also has a team of experts well-trained about after-care to ensure you have a hassle-free recovery without coming in between the results.
