I am Dr. Shilpi Bhadani, a plastic surgeon, practicing in Ghorgaon.
So I’ll talk about hair transplantation. Alopecia or baldness is a very common problem nowadays and across younger age group as well as the old age group. Hair transplant offer a permanent solution. In this if basically understood it is the transplantation of hair from one part of the scalp to the other part. In severe cases we may need to use body hair from the axilla or the pubic region of the chest hair even the leg hair, but most commonly in about 99% of the cases we use scalp hair from the back of the head to the front to cover the bald areas. No basically there are two methods for hair transplant. It is either Follicular unit transplantation or Follicular unit exaction. The two methods the implantation are not different that is the putting the hair is almost the same is the method by which we exact the hair is different. So in Follicular unit transplantation or FUT method, we actually take a strip of the hair from the back and the donor area is stitched and then the team of technicians they separate the strip….. the individual follicles from the strip and then they are made ready for the transplantation. Whereas in Follicular Unit Extraction, the individual follicle, the bunch of follicles are extracted and one follicle may contain one hair up to three hair so they are individually extracted and implanted. So there is a myth that floats that FUT is not safe or it leaves a very bad scar and FUE is nonsurgical, so you have to get this very clear that both are surgical methods, FUT or FUE. Hair transplantation is a surgical methods not a nonsurgical procedure and the methods of FUT have improved overtime and we actually now do a trichophytic closure. So the hair… the new hair in the scar actually grows through the scar. So it actually obscure the scar. You can hardly make out that a strip of hair is taken from there and in FUE also. There will be punctate scars that will be left behind. So it’s just a matter of perception whether what you think is right and it actually…. the choice of the procedure depends on the donor area and the recipient area and your level of baldness whether which is used. Sometimes we also use a combination of the two increase the hair yield. Now there are many, you know clinics, which offer that, you know, ‘we offer unlimited hair transplant’ and see donor area is always limited so there cannot be an unlimited hair transplant and also that if a fair amount of density is expected by the person underdoing the hair transplant, you may will have to go undergo a second session to get a good density. So coverage and density are two different things. So initially we target coverage and if you want more density then of course you can a second procedure can be done. The hair that is transplanted grows….. starts growing in about four months’ time and the complete result can assessed after eight months to nine months’ time. And I the follow up period if PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma Theory is done after the hair transplant the hair growth is really better. Some medications are continued after the hair transplant also up to to certain amount of time but it’s a procedure that requires six to eight hours if we are targeting a bigger coverage area and it’s a procedure done under local anesthesia. When choosing a hair transplant center it is important for you to research and the qualifications of the surgeon or the person doing the hair transplant is very important because a lot of unauthorized centers that have sprung nowadays and you safety is the prime concern. As I said that it is a surgical procedure so things may get complicated so you have to choose a center which is well equipped which is well equipped to deal with emergencies if at all there is a need. Usually there is no need but then you safety is the prime concern. So understand that it is a surgical procedure and it has to be done safely and it has to be result oriented.

Hello everyone. I am Dr Shilpi Bhadani, a plastic surgeon in Gurgaon. Today I will speak about Laser Hair Reduction.
Laser hair reduction is increasing in popularity as a method to remove unwanted body hair. The most common areas include the underarms, facial hair, the chest hair in males, the back hair also in males, leg, arms, bikini line. So there is almost no body part which is spared from laser hair reduction.
But it is important for the people who are seeking laser hair reduction to understand that, "what is the expectation and whether the reality will match the expectation or not?"
So, the first consultation with the laser specialist is important. And one must know the modality that is being used for the Laser Hair reduction. There can be multiple modalities like - Diode, Nd-YAG Q-Switched and IPL. Out of this, Diode and Nd-YAG are equally successfull an popular. However, the gold standard is Diode laser hair reduction.
The black hair is most effectively targeted and it is mostly targeted in the growth phase. Now, hair grows in a cyclic manner that is why it needs sessions to ultimately reduce the hair growth. And one thing you need to understand that it is not hair removal, it is hair reduction. So, although some people do achieve freedom from hair but gradually you will need maintenance and that will depend on person to person. Although it is not much. When you had about 6-8 sessions, then it is really good.
Laser hair reduction for the face usually sort after by women or girls who have the syndrome called as Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome in which there is Hirsutism that means the unwanted facial hair in male growth pattern is there. LOaser hair reduction is a very effective modality for this unwanted growth of hair but it must also be understood by the patients that PCOD must be treated. So, simultaneous treatment for PCOD is essential. So, you will need a consultation with person who treats PCOS liek an endocrinologist or a gynaecologist simultaneous to the Laser Hair Reduction.
So, it is grwoing in popularity and it is very very successfull method.
We do Laser Hair Reduction at our clinic. If you want to contact, you can contact me through Lybrate.

Hi, this is Dr Leena Yadav. I am consultant IVF and reproduction with Bourn Hall Fertility Centre from the last 3 years now. I have given take home pregnancies and today what I am going to discuss with everyone here is about Egg Freezing or what we call as Oocyte Freezing. I want all the young females that they should opt Egg freezing or Oocyte freezing if they are planning to get married the late 30s or if they want a child bearing which is late after their marriage.
Why do I suggest you go for Egg Freezing?
Because the egg quality deteriorates gradually after the 30s and that is why the best time to preserve your oocytes is between 20-30 years. We would like to tell you that the egg quality deteriorates after the 30s. The females who are working and had their marriage but do not want a child right now, they can actually plan up Egg Freezing. If you plan up Egg Freezing at this point of time, that means you stop your biological clock. If you do your Oocyte freezing at 22-23 years, these oocytes can later be used to form embryos. The only thing we have to do is to de-freeze them and use these oocytes fertilise with your partner sperm and form embryos for you we can do this embryo transfer for you whenever you want to get pregnant. This can be done at the age of 35-42 years. But if you freeze your Oocytes between 20-30 years of age, you are actually stopping the biological clock there and actually focusing on having good Oocyte quality.
The other thing is you should also focus on Oocyte freezing if you have a family history of early menopause or you have a history of Pre mature Ovarian failure or if you people are diagnosed with some cancer or undergoing Chemotherapy. People who are diagnosed with cancer and are planning to have chemotherapy should prefer Oocyte or the egg freezing before taking the first cycle of Chemotherapy itself. Because if you take this decision after the cycle of Chemotherapy, then the Oocyte quality we get after the first shot of Chemotherapy will be really affected.
So, I would like that you should think about these things and get back to us. If you want to contact us for the same, you can connect with us through Lybrate and they will get you connected to us.
Hi, everyone. I am Dr. Leena Yadav, a consultant IVF in Bourn Hall Fertility Center in Gurgaon. I would like to share some important inputs to you people for IVF and the embryos which we form in IVF.
Now, here I am going to talk about the Embryo, which is called Blastocyst. I don't know how many people are aware of it. But Blastocysts are embryos, they are Day-5 Embryo which we form and Blastocyst transfer has got a success rate which a day-2 or a day-3 embryo can not give you.
So, at Bourn Hall, we have specialized with IVFLab, which is equipped to form these embryos called Blastocysts.
What is the advantage of taking a Blastocysts transfer over a Day-2 or a Day-3 when you plan your IVF cycle?
Blastocysts are Embryos which are definitely healthier as compared to a Day-2 or Day-3 embryos because the only those embryos go to Day-5 which has got the capacity to have an Implantation. Definitely, if we focus on doing Blastocysts for you, we are focusing on the higher success rate of IVF cycle. Blastocysts are embryos which give good clinical pregnancy and which give you good take home live pregnancy rate.
So, at Bourn Hall, we focus on doing Blastocysts for the couples because our Andrologist and the team is completely trained and our lab is well equipped for doing all these transfers and these Blastocysts.
With Blastocysts, who have had multiple IVF failures, they have electively planned for the elective Blastocysts so that we can give them a good pregnancy rate after having multiple IVF failures. Also, Blastocysts are Embryos which have got fewer risks of abortion as they are healthy embryos and also they have increased chances of Implantation inside the Uterus.
I would definitely like if you all are in the problem of Infertility and you want to contact us for solving the problem of Infertility and further planning a cycle for you, you can please contact us through Lybrate and we will definitely be happy to share our inputs with you.
Thank you so much.read more
