There have been many reports of hair transplantation having gone wrong in recent times. This is because many unqualified persons are getting into this procedure. Read the following to understand how you can get the best hair treatment in Bangalore.
Who should perform hair transplant?
The best hair transplantation would be performed by trained professionals. Dermatologists who have a sound knowledge of trichology and plastic surgeons who have expertise in cosmetic surgery are the natural choices. In addition ENT surgeons who have received the appropriate training would also do this procedure well. So any Dermatologist, Plastic surgeon or ENT surgeon with the appropriate training and expertise would give the best hair transplant experience in Bangalore
Other specialists and general doctors who aren’t trained would be at a disadvantage. AYUSH doctors, DENTISTS are not qualified to perform hair transplantation in India and patients should resist from consulting them. Always check your doctors qualifications
Can hair transplant surgery be performed by technicians and assistants?
This is deplorable and should be stopped at once- assistants can only perform dissection, arrangement of grafts and implantation under supervision. They should not do extraction or site creation. They should not do any part of hair transplantation independently.
Can hair transplantation be done by a person other than the one whom the patient consults?
This is not acceptable. Patients should insist on prior consultation with the surgeon- and insist that the same person does the surgery in Bangalore.
What should be the training needed for performing hair transplantation in Bangalore?
There are no approved guidelines for this from medical council. There are also no medical colleges to teach this technique or degrees in Hair Transplant . Hence this has led to a confusing situation.
In our opinion, training needs to be obtained by working under a reputed hair transplant surgeon which performs at least 15 cases per month for periods of 1-3-6 months( depending on the background of the doctor). Training can also be gained in addition to this in :
In view of this, the following need to be checked while assessing a surgeon:
- Workshops and courses, conferences attended in India and abroad
- Training imparted to people by the surgeon at the trainee’s centre
In addition experienced gained by the surgeon is equally important and this can be assessed by:
- Years of practice in Hair Transplant
- No of cases done over the years
- Memberships in associations
- Lectures given in conferences
- Papers , articles and books published
- Conducting workshops and courses
- Positions held in associations in India and abroad
Patients are advised not to go by exaggerated claims such as, the first, the best, the only, FDA approved – etc
Where is the best hair transplant clinic in Bangalore for your surgery?
Hair Transplant is a simple surgery- so it does not need a hospital major theatre- A day case theatre is sufficient. However, it is still a surgery , so all protocols are to be maintained by the centre. These include:
- Proper hygiene, sterilization and disinfection
- Proper qualified nurse to carry out these
- Emergency equipment for resuscitation.
IT CAN NOT BE PERFORMED IN A SPA, BEAUTY CLINIC, SALOON, OUTPATIENT CLINIC ETC. PATIENTS SHOULD NOT CHOOSE SUCH PLACES SIMPLY FOR REASONS OF LOWER COST. BEAUTY CAN NOT COME AT THE COST OF THE LIFE
There has to be proper case selection based on detail history, personal examination and preoperative assessment with blood tests , ECG to identify underlying medical conditions
If all the above are ensure, you can make sure you have the best hair transplant experience in Bangalore and leave happy
