Frequently Asked Questions about the Diva clinic
Basically divided into 3 groups-
Till date only 2 US - FDA drugs have been approved for hair loss as follows -:
Ans : Hair transplant is a permanent solution to baldness , a latest technique , cosmetic procedure , whereby we take a person’s own hair root from the back of the head and transfer to the front in the area of baldness, it grows just like any other natural hairs , every month they will grow, you can have a subsequent hair cut , can apply oil , comb , shampoo, color ,dye , style to your choice ,keep rough & tough , they stay for rest of your life and never fall , even if you clean shave them ,they will re-grow again.
Hair Transplant is a One day procedure, done under local anaesthesia, where a team of 6-8 members operate for 6-8 hour transplanting one by one hair roots from the back of scalp to the front. Throughout the procedure the client remain fully awake, talks comfortably to the doctor , listen music inside Ot ,and have a tea & lunch break in between process , and at the end of procedure ,he walks down comfortably to his home. There is no hospitalization, No dietary restriction, he takes a sound sleep at night, without pain, from the next day morning he can resume his normal work /office , there is no bed rest required.
Ans : Types of Hair Transplant – There are 4 types of hair transplant depending on the technique by which hairs are harvested .
Ans : Hair transplant is a minor OPD procedure done under local anaesthesia. In 98% of the cases usually no side effect occurs, in less than 2 % cases a few side effects may occur as follows :-
Ans - Hair in scalp exist in naturally occurring units or groups of 1,2,3 or rarely 4 hair which is known as one follicular unit graft.
Ans : Charges depend on the following factors.
A. Area of baldness (small or big )
B. Donor area density of scalp (low or high )
C. Budget of the client (whether he wish to cover the whole area of baldness in single or multiple settings )
D. Technique involved (FUT/FUE alone or FUT+ FUE combo , BHT )
The basic charges are as follows -:
I. FUT + FUE combo for Giga session – Rs 40 / FUG
II. FUT( Commonest , Gold Standard , Strip method ) – Rs 45 / FUG
III. FUE ( Stitchless , practically scarless method ) – Rs 55 / FUG
IV. BHT ( Body Hair from beard & chest to scalp – Rs 60/ FUG
Ans : This again depends on the
(a) Donor area density of scalp,
(b) budget of the client and
(c) the technique involved . FUT/FUE alone or in Combo .
At our centre , a well equipped standardised OT and instruments ,using a latest technology (FUT+FUE combo ) we are specialist in covering a big area of baldness in a single setting (3500-5000 FUG ) which is known as giga session . If the area of baldness is big and the budget of client is limited then he can get the whole area covered in 2-3 settings . In the first setting the area on front (hair line ) and top (central tuft ) , which is most important and visible is covered with an average of 2000 FUG (b/w 1500-2500FUG ) to give a natural look after 6 months when the results are visible he can get the area at the back covered by a subsequent single setting .
Ans : Giga session is to cover a big area of baldness in a single setting by implantation, more than 3500 FUG (upto 4000-5000 FUG ) this can be done either by
I. FUT alone -: Provided donor area density is high , scalp laxicity and circumference of head is big
II. Combination of FUT + FUE -: Taking out the maximum number of grafts by FUT ( Taking maximum length & width of strip ) up to 3000-3500 FUG usually and the remaining grafts by FUE from above or below the strip from permanent hair bearing zone .
III. FUE alone -; taking maximum number of grafts from donor area scalp depending on density (2000-3000 FUG ) and the remaining via Body Hair Transplant (beard or chest hair ).
Depending on donor area density via FUE method between 1000-2000 FUG from beard and the same from chest can be harvested in a single setting .
Ans : Following a transplant we usually give medications (shampoo, tablets, lotions ) for 6-9 months till complete hair grows . These medications act as a fertilizer which increase the quality, texture, density of the rest of the hairs and control further hairloss and strengthens the hair roots and delays the miniaturization / falling of rest of the hairs under genetic influence .
When we are covering the area of baldness by transplant then ideally , if the surrounding adjacent hairs have a lower density which are susceptible to fall in future( under genetic influence ) , then ideally these adjacent low density zone should be made dense by transplanting hair in the space between two natural adjacent hairs if the budget of the client allows, so that in future even if this genetic susceptible hairs fall then that area will not appear bald again nor does this require the second session of transplant because transplanted hairs are already present there in high density .
Following the first transplant in the front & top area if rest of the hair at back of the scalp fall then it won’t cause much problem because the transplanted hairs in front if allowed to longer will cover the area at back . If the rest of the hairs fall leading to a big area of baldness following the first setting, then you can get it covered in subsequent 2nd session of Hair Transplant.
Ans.- The density of transplanted hair is known as cosmetic density, APPARENT DENSITY or optical density where as the density of natural hair is known as REAL DENSITY.
Ans- The transplanted hairs are permanent but not immortal. Most common cause of baldness in 95 % of the cases is hereditary and genetic, since the transplanted hair roots do not contain the receptors on which the gene acts so they stay for rest of your life.
The transplanted hairs are permanent with respect to heredity reason (95%) only but they may fall under the influence of remaining 5 % of causes like –
