Hair transplant involves taking out hair follicles from one part of the scalp or body and transferring it to the bald area. Today, Hair transplant is a very minimally invasive procedure. Hair follicles after transplantation grow on the bald area for almost entire life. Hair transplant needs specialized training & skills for follicle extraction, hairline designing, density and implantation. In India, most medical schools including AIIMS do not focus on hair transplant training. In fact, it’s impossible to get a hair transplant from AIIMS or any other medical school in India. Most top hair transplant surgeons in India have trained abroad or are self-trained. A well-trained team is equally important for a good hair transplant. Experience of the surgeon, the time he spends in procedure and the experienced team decides how good hair transplant results a person will get. There are few important things to remember before you get a hair transplant in India.
- Hair transplant Surgeon:- A good hair transplant technique is waste without a good surgeon. Extensive work is important by surgeon to deliver consistent good hair transplant results. A good clinic will not be able to deliver good results without 100% involvement of its chief surgeon. First criteria for a good hair transplant procedure is to search for a good hair transplant surgeon. Plan a video or physical consultation where you can meet the main surgeon. Write down all your questions, your expectation and all your doubts before meeting your physician. Do not just believe in you tube videos by patients and celebrity picturs put up by clinic on websites. Most of these are commercial paid marketing to attract patients. Real patients hardly ever put 20 minutes video praising a particular clinic. Like most awards and hair transplant associations membership are bought most content on google and you tube are paid. Believe in what you see. MEET your hair transplant surgeon psysically if possible.
- Paid Marketing:- You tube videos, google ads, celebrity getting hair transplant, so called patient videos are all paid marketing which every clinic does. But as a patient you should not fall in this trap. Monaris clinic has never paid any celebrity any money to promote monaris for hair transplant. All celebrity cricketors actors fashion designers are real patients who have undergone hair transplant surgery at monaris. We only assure our celebrity clients of taking good care of their hair as we do to all our patients. As a patient your expectation should be clear and well understood. Because you see a celebrity cricketer on TV who was fully bald now having a full head of hair does not mean that those are real results. Most actors and celebrities when infront of camera uses hair fibres and make ups to hide their low density or bald patch. Use your instinct to decide right and wrong.
- Hair Transplant Cost:- This is one thing where most people focus on. Some patients do not want to know anything other then per graft cost. Does that really matters. Cost of hair transplant dependes on multiple factors. Surgeon experience and time he is involved in surgery, Clinic Hygiene and protocols they follow, technique used, instruments and medicines used etc. For example clinics who used technicians to extract hair follicle will be cheaper then the clinics where surgeon extracts hair follicle. Clinics using standard methods of graft preservation, graft extraction and design density creation will be slightly expensive then normal clinics. Patients should always make a perfect balance between cost and quality of hair transplant. Clinics doing multiple surgeries in one day mainly by technicians like hair transplant in Turkey will be cheaper then clinics who just perform one quality procedure in a day always done by main surgeon only.
