if I done hair transplantation, it can grows like normal hair or not?
Hello. Of course yes! As the planted hair are your own hair taken out from the back side of the scalp, so they will have the same speed of growth and texture, etc. Even if you get zero trimming or shaving of the whole head, then as well the hair will keep on growing.. What matters is from which firm you are going to opt for hair transplantation! So, opt only for a renowned, expert, reliable plastic surgeon and organization/ firm. They charge little high from the normal cost, but will give you accurate and excellent results! All the best..

Dear you can easily gain weight and get a healthy muscular body by following these best things - 1. To gain weight, your digestion should work properly. If you have any disease of digestive system you should treat disease first. For proper digestion - take 10 gms powder of carom seeds (ajwain, 10 gm powder of cumin (jeera), 10 gm of rock salt. Mix them well and take 1/2 teaspoon (3-5 gm) of mixture daily after meal. Or take 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper (kali mirch), 1/ 2 tea spoon of jeera (cumin), 2-3 slice of ginger. Boil it in one glass of water for 2-3 minutes. Drink 5-10 teaspoons (15-20 ml) in morning and evening for strong digestive system. Or you can take amla powder 1 teaspoon with water for strong digestion. 2. Take a diet rich with proteins and fats. You should take high calorie food that increase your muscle mass and induce growth in bones. I am sending the diet chart. Follow it in your daily life to fastly gain weight * in morning, take a glass of milk added with 2 teaspoons of protein powder with breakfast. * in lunch time, take 1 bowl of curd or 100 gm of cheese, a bowl of vegetable, with chapattis. * in evening, take 1 glass of milk (300 ml) with 2 bananas. * in night, take a bowl of careals (daal, a bowl of salad with chapattis. 3. In morning, get up early and take awalk for 10-15 minutes and exercise light weight exercises for at least 30 minutes at home or gym. 4. For proper weight, proper sleep is very important. So you should sleep for 6-8 hours daily. 5. Avoid soft drinks, western fast food (burgers, french fries, pizza etc. They disturb your digestion. 6. You can try protein powders like endura mass, milk powder, soya protein. And creatinine for weight gain by taking 1 tea spoon added in milk once a day.

Hi lybrate-user, acne on the back occurs due to activity of oil glands & associated infection, we have more oil glands on face, shoulders, back so that is why acne are more in these areas. You can use a cream containing clindamycin & benzoyl peroxide & salicylic or benzoyl peroxide based soap, if still the acne persist I would suggest you to meet the doctor in person as may be some systemic antibiotics or treatments like salicylic peels or laser can be given for resistant cases.
