It involves taking roots from the back of the scalp, which are resistant to the action of DHT hormone, and transferring them to the area of hair loss. The USPs of Hair transplant at Chandra clinic are
How is the procedure done?
We take out roots from the back area of your scalp and insert them in the area of hair loss. The roots start producing hair in the new area. It’s like taking a plant along with the root from one soil and planting it in another soil. The procedure is done under local anesthesia so you will be conscious.
How much time does the procedure take?
It typically takes a day or sometimes two depending upon the area of hair loss.
How painful is it?
At chandra clinic, with the use of minimally invasive technique the procedure is almost painless. The post procedure period is also very comfortable with majority of our patients not needing any painkillers.
How much is the downtime?
When will I be able to join work? Next day. That’s right. With our procedure, you’d be able to join work the very next day without any bandages on your head. Little dots of implanted hair scabs fall off in 10 days.
What care has to be taken after transplant?
It’s very simple to follow instructions. We’ll be giving you a saline spray bottle and you’ll have to spray it on the implanted area every hour for 2 days. New roots need hydration which is why the saline spray is important. You’ll have to avoid gymming for a week. After 10 days of transplant we recommend you start using minoxidil again.
How much does it cost?
After the transplant will I still have to use medicines to save my hair?
The purpose of Hair Transplant is to replace what you’ve lost, not save what you have. So you’d have to continue minoxidil to save existing hair.
How much time does it take for all the hair to grow?
It generally takes around an year for full result.
Is there any age bar for it?
No, there’s no age bar. However we do recommend that if you’re younger than 20, we must wait and treat just with medicines that will help us understand your speed of hair loss. The younger the age at which Male baldness starts, the more will be its progression. We need to plan our transplant accordingly.
When is the right time for a transplant?
This is an aesthetic procedure. You can go for it whenever you feel you are not looking as per your expectation and want to improve your looks. If it’s affecting your confidence level, then the best time is now. However, medicines to stop further hair loss have to start as soon as possible. That’s not something one should delay.
