Hair loss, or alopecia, is a common problem that affects both men and women and can be caused by stress, diseases, some medical treatments and genes. While some of these factors are temporary or can be reversed, many people suffer permanent hair loss that can lead to self-confidence issues.

Hair loss can cause significant adverse effects on psychosocial well-being in some men and women and hair restoration surgery can help men and women suffering from baldness or thinning hair. If you are looking for best hair transplant in Mumbai read the content below.

Is it right for me?

You are most likely a good candidate for this procedure if:

  • You are in good general health, have a positive attitude and realistic expectations
  • You suffer from male or female pattern baldness and have thinning hair
  • Your hair loss is not a result of medication, stress or medical treatment

What will it not do?

  • People who lack the supply of good quality head, body or beard hair will not be candidates for any type of hair transplant.
  • A relative contraindication for hair transplant generally is the age of patients below 24 years of age. This is due to the fact that a person under the age who suffers from androgenic alopecia has likely not finished balding.
  • Some people with extremely curly or kinked follicles such as most of the African descent are not good candidates.
  • People with an abnormal tendency to scar or keloids should avoid surgical treatments.

About Follicular Unit Extraction

We perform hair transplant in Mumbai since the beginning of our practice. Our selected technique for hair restoration is Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) Hair transplant is performed with local anaesthesia and procedure takes two to eight hours to complete.

The physician will remove individual follicular units (composed by single hair or a group of two-four hair) from the patient’s occipital area of the scalp or the beard (donor areas).

The placement of these follicular units is what sets the natural-looking results and artistic difference. The physician makes small incisions with a needle in the patient’s areas of hair loss, in keeping with the patient’s natural hair growth pattern. The follicular grafts are then strategically placed one by one according to the number of hairs within each follicle.

Recovery and results

It is vitally important that you follow all patient care instructions provided by the plastic surgeon. Complimentary hair loss treatment will improve the results (See the section of non-surgical treatment for hair restoration).

After a short amount of time (sometimes right after surgery), the hair grafts will fall out and will not regrow for approximately three months. This is a completely normal process and will allow new hair to grow in its place. Restored hair will grow in the same fashion as one’s native hair. Around nine months to one year, a patient should notice significant regrowth. Hair transplant results last a lifetime.

You should know that

Fortunately, significant complications from hair transplant are infrequent. Every year, thousands of people undergo successful hair restoration and are pleased with the results. All surgical procedures have some degree of risk. The cosmetic surgeon will explain to you all the details about procedure, benefits, potential risks and complications and before you will be asked to sign a consent.

In the specific case of hair transplant, it may happen that the hair follicles themselves may become inflamed or infected. For this reason, the plastic surgeon will prescribe antibiotic medication during the recovery time.
