Because, he was experiencing constant hair loss in the scalp area from a long time! At Prem Cosmetic Surgery, we did a complete medical checkup and found that he was suffering from hair loss due to genetic inheritance. He has a habit of smoking which can cause serious hair loss problems.
Mr.Rajan also drives a two-wheeler. Do you know that use of helmet can also cause hair loss? Yes, it’s true! At Prem Cosmetic Surgery, we performed a test where hair loss and baldness was confirmed. Then, we decided the number of grafts required to treat the baldness. Also, we did blood test along with ECG before performing the hair transplant surgery.
At Prem Cosmetic Surgery, we give dates to the patient at least 7-10 days in advance. We advised Mr. Rajan to use a medicated shampoo at least 3 days before the surgery and prescribed some antibiotics. Next, we started the procedure by sizing the hair at the back of his head and a local anesthesia skin test in the OT. We asked him to lie down in such a way that we could harvest follicles from the back his head.
After performing the local anesthesia on the back of the scalp, we took some time so that it could act. It was the right time to harvest the grafts from the donor area. Once the harvesting was done, the patient was sent for breakfast. Within 3-4 hours, we performed hair implantation in the front area (or the desired area).
Depending on the number of follicles, the session lasts for 4-8 hours and the person can join work the next day itself. We recommend our patients to take antibiotics, antacid painkillers and multivitamins for 5 days after the surgery. Post operation, one needs to wear a headband for 3 days till his first shampooing. At Prem Cosmetic Surgery, we recommend you to come for a follow-up session after 3-4 days. The stitches are removed between 8-10 days at the clinic or at the patient’s native place.
Usually, it takes around one or two weeks within which the scabs start falling. The hair may also fall during this stage – which is termed as shock loss but it will later grow within 2-3 months. After 4-6 months, we will tell you to go for a haircut. With Prem Cosmetic Surgery, hair transplant surgery becomes so easy and effective.
