Hello Everyone,<br/><br/>I am Dr. Shilpi Bhadani, a plastic surgeon, practicing in Ghorgaon.<br/>...

Hello Everyone,

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.

If you want a consultation from me for hair transplant you can contact me via Lybrate. Thank you.

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.

Thank you.

Hi, this is Dr Leena Yadav. I am consultant IVF and reproduction with Bourn Hall Fertility Centre...

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.

Thank you.

Hi, everyone. I am Dr. Leena Yadav, a consultant IVF in Bourn Hall Fertility Center in Gurgaon. I...

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.

Overview - Inguinal Hernia

MBBS, MS-General Surgery , FMAS, FIAGES
General Surgeon, Gurgaon

Overview - INGUINAL HERNIA

An inguinal hernia occurs when tissue, such as part of the intestine, protrudes through a weak spot in the abdominal muscles. The resulting bulge can be painful, especially when you cough, bend over or lift a heavy object.An inguinal hernia isn't necessarily dangerous, however, it can lead to life-threatening complications. Inguinal hernia repair is a common surgical procedure.    

Symptoms

  • A bulge in the area on either side of your pubic bone, which becomes more obvious when you're upright, especially if you cough or strain .
  • A burning or aching sensation at the bulge   
  • Pain or discomfort in your groin, especially when bending over, coughing or lifting    
  • A heavy or dragging sensation in your groin    
  • Occasionally, pain and swelling around the testicles when the protruding intestine descends into the scrotum
  • You should be able to gently push the hernia back into your abdomen when you're lying down.

Incarcerated hernia

If you aren't able to push the hernia in, the contents of the hernia can be trapped (incarcerated) in the abdominal wall. An incarcerated hernia can become strangulated, which cuts off the blood flow to the tissue that's trapped. A strangulated hernia can be life-threatening if it isn't treated.

Signs and symptoms of a strangulated hernia 

  • Nausea, vomiting 
  • Fever    
  • Sudden pain that quickly intensifies    
  • A hernia bulge that turns red, purple or dark
  • Inability to move your bowels or pass gas

Signs and symptoms in children

  • Inguinal hernias in newborns and children result from a weakness in the abdominal wall that's present at birth. Sometimes the hernia will be visible only when an infant is crying, coughing or straining. 
  • In an older child, a hernia is likely to be more apparent when the child coughs, strains during a bowel movement or stands for a long period.
  • Seek immediate medical care if a hernia bulge turns red, purple or dark.

Causes

  • Some inguinal hernias have no apparent cause. 
  • Increased pressure within the abdomen    
  • A pre-existing weak spot in the abdominal wall
  • Straining during bowel movements or urination    
  • Strenuous activity    
  • Pregnancy    
  • Smoking
  • Inguinal hernias develop later in life when muscles weaken or deteriorate due to aging, strenuous physical activity or coughing that accompanies smoking.

Risk factors

  • Male. Men are eight times more likely to develop an inguinal hernia than are women.   
  • Old age
  • Family history.
  • Chronic cough, such as from smoking.    
  • Chronic constipation.
  • Pregnancy.

Complications

1. Pressure on surrounding tissues

Most inguinal hernias enlarge over time if not repaired surgically. In men, large hernias can extend into the scrotum, causing pain and swelling.    

2. Incarcerated hernia

If the contents of the hernia become trapped in the weak point in the abdominal wall, it can obstruct the bowel, leading to severe pain, nausea, vomiting, and the inability to have a bowel movement or pass gas.    

3. Strangulation

An incarcerated hernia can cut off blood flow to part of your intestine. Strangulation can lead to the death of the affected bowel tissue. A strangulated hernia is life-threatening and requires immediate surgery.           

Diagnosis

A physical exam is usually all that's needed to diagnose an inguinal hernia. Your doctor will check for a bulge in the groin area. 

.If the diagnosis isn't readily apparent, your doctor might order an imaging test, such as an abdominal ultrasound, CT scan or MRI.                                

Treatment

If your hernia is small and isn't bothering you, your doctor might recommend watchful waiting. 

Enlarging or painful hernias usually require surgery to relieve discomfort and prevent serious complications.

There are two general types of hernia operations — open hernia repair and laparoscopic repair.                Open hernia repair - In this procedure, which might be done with spinal anesthesia or general anesthesia, the surgeon makes an incision in your groin and pushes the protruding tissue back into your abdomen. The surgeon then sews the weakened area, often reinforcing it with a synthetic mesh (hernioplasty). The opening is then closed with stitches, staples or surgical glue.After the surgery, you'll be encouraged to move about as soon as possible, but it might be several weeks before you're able to resume normal activities.  

COMPARISON OF OPEN AND LAPAROSCOPIC SURGERY

Laparoscopy

In this minimally invasive procedure, which requires general anesthesia, the surgeon operates through several small incisions in your abdomen. Gas is used to inflate your abdomen to make the internal organs easier to see.A tiny camera (laparoscope) is inserted into one incision. Guided by the camera, the surgeon inserts tiny instruments through other incisions to repair the hernia using synthetic mesh.People who have laparoscopic repair might have less discomfort and scarring after surgery and a quicker return to normal activities.

It also might be a good choice for people with hernias on both sides of the body (bilateral).

What Is Fistula In Ano?

What Is Fistula In Ano?

LIFT (LIGATION OF INTERNAL FISTULA TRACT ) MININAL INVASIVE PROCEDURE FOR FISTULA IN ANO

What is Fistula in Ano?

A fistula-in-ano is an abnormal tract with an external opening in the perianal area that is communicating with the rectum or anal canal by an identifiable internal opening. Most fistulas are thought to arise as a result of cryptoglandular infection with resultantperirectal abscess.

Treatment of anal fistulas depends on their location and complexity. When considering surgery, the ultimate goal is to protect the sphincter muscle and prevent recurrence of an anal fistula

LIFT (ligation of internal fistula tract) technique is yet another approach in treating a fistula-in-ano.

The Technique

LIFT procedure is based on secure closure of the internal opening and removal of infected cryptoglandular tissue through the intersphincteric approach. The LIFT technique is often performed for complex or deep fistulas. The procedure allows surgeon to access the fistula between the sphincter muscles and avoid cutting them.

  1. Minimally invasive procedure for fistula in ano
  2. Very liitle risk of incontinence
  3. Very little risk of recurrence
  4. Safe and effective method of treatment
  5. No need of repeated dressing
  6. No scarring of tissue
  7. Early return to work
  8. Minimal pain

Sebaceous Cyst!

Sebaceous Cyst!

Sebaceous cyst - superficail skin lumps

Sebaceous cysts are noncancerous small bumps beneath the skin. They can appear anywhere on the skin, but are most common on the face, neck and trunk.

Epidermoid cysts are slow growing and often painless, so they rarely cause problems or need treatment. 

True sebaceous cysts are less common. They arise from the glands that secrete oily matter that lubricates hair and skin (sebaceous glands).

Symptoms

Epidermoid cyst signs and symptoms include:

  • A small, round bump under the skin, usually on the face, neck or trunk
  • A tiny blackhead plugging the central opening of the cyst
  • A thick, yellow, smelly material that sometimes drains from the cyst
  • Redness, swelling and tenderness in the area, if inflamed or infected

Complications

Potential complications of epidermoid cysts include:

  • Inflammation. An epidermoid cyst can become tender and swollen, even if it's not infected. An inflamed cyst is difficult to remove. Your doctor is likely to postpone removing it until the inflammation subsides.
  • Rupture. A ruptured cyst often leads to a boil-like infection that requires prompt treatment.
  • Infection. Cysts can become infected and painful (abscessed).
  • Skin cancer. In very rare cases, epidermoid cysts can lead to skin cancer.

When to see a doctor

Most epidermoid cysts don't cause problems or need treatment. See your doctor if you have one or more that:

  • Grows rapidly
  • Ruptures or becomes painful or infected
  • Occurs in a spot that's constantly irritated
  • Bothers you for cosmetic reasons
  • Is in an unusual location, such as a finger and toe

Gynecomastia - Treating It With Surgery!

Gynecomastia - Treating It With Surgery!

Swollen breast tissues in men or boys caused by hormonal imbalances is called gynecomastia. Both breasts or one breast, can be affected by this. At any point in life, from birth to puberty, even in adulthood, one might develop gynecomastia. Most of the times, gynecomastia is caused by hormonal imbalance, but there might be some underlying causes as well. 

Gynecomastia is normally not a serious condition, but it can be difficult to deal with the pain and embarrassment. One may be advised to wait and watch for the regression the gynecomastia but surgery is often necessary to get rid of this condition. 

Symptoms and signs of gynecomastia include: 

  1. Enlarged glands in the breast tissue 
  2. Tenderness in the breast 

The causes that trigger gynecomastia include: 

  1. Hormonal changes: Testosterone and estrogen control the sexual development in men and women respectively. Estrogen is not a hormone that only women produce; men produce it too. When the production of testosterone and estrogen are thrown out of balance, gynecomastia occurs.
  2. Medication: Certain medications such as anabolic steroids, androgens, HIV/AIDS medicines, antibiotics and chemotherapy can cause gynecomastia.
  3. Drugs and alcohol: Substances such as alcohol, marijuana, amphetamines, heroin and methadone cause gynecomastia. 
  4. Health condition: Certain factors, such as aging, hypogonadism (hormonal disorder), hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid gland), tumors, kidney failure, cirrhosis, liver failure, malnutrition and starvation can lead to gynecomastia. 
  5. Herbal products: Essential oils derived from plants such as lavender or tea tree, used in lotions or shampoos, have weak estrogenic actives. In exceptional circumstances, they may cause gynecomastia. 

Treatment 
There is no definitive medical treatment. The main answer for Gynecomastia is -SURGERY. It is a daycare procedure in most situations. It is done by a Surgeon, usually, a Plastic surgeon does a better job. 

Anesthesia- Either Local or General anesthesia is given to make it painless. My preferred anesthesia is general anesthesia because it makes the person very comfortable during the surgery. It can also be done under intravenous sedation combined with Local anesthesia. 

Procedure- Through a small incision in the area around the breasts the swelling is removed by both Liposuction of the Fat part and Excision (removal) for Breast gland part. As the incision is through the areola and a small incision in the surrounding skin, the final scar is hardly visible. In post bariatric or massive weight loss patients, skin also needs to be removed, where in a scar around the areola border is visible. 

Recovery- Usually can go back to work in 2-3 days time.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Laser Hair Removal - What to Know Before Getting One!

Laser Hair Removal - What to Know Before Getting One!

Body hair are typically seen as an unwanted attribute. For this reason, both men and women are constantly trying to keep their body hair free. Common ways of removing body hair include shaving, waxing and the use of Depilatories. However, none of these techniques can permanently remove hair and hence need to be repeated regularly. The only way to permanently reduce body hair is through laser hair reduction therapy.

Laser hair reduction can be used to address and reduce hair on almost any part of the body including the face, arms, chest, back, legs and bikini line. This procedure involves focusing laser light on the hair follicle pigments known as melanin without affecting the surrounding skin. The melanin absorbs this light energy and converts it to heat energy which in turn stops the stem cells in the hair roots from regenerating and burns the roots off. This weakens the hair follicles to the point of falling off. 

Hair removal is considered permanent when the hair follicles do not grow back. After the first session, new hair growth is often lighter and less dense than before. On an average, long term hair reduction may require multiple sessions. Since laser therapy can be used to address only those follicles that are in the growing phase, these sessions are usually spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart. During this time the hair follicles that were in the resting phase can grow out. The number of sessions required also depends on the quality and number of hair follicles, individual’s hormone levels, and metabolism. In some cases where hair growth is very dense, maintenance treatment may be required once in six months or annually. 

The procedure is relatively pain free. During the treatment, the patient may experience a faint prick or sensation of warmth. When treating sensitive areas, topical anesthesia may also be used. This form of laser therapy can take anywhere between 5 to 45 minutes for a single session depending on the amount of area being addressed. 

Laser hair removal is considered a very safe procedure and has minimal side effects if done under supervision and by a trained technician. In some cases, it may cause a temporary change in the colour of the skin of the treated area, but this usually resolves itself without medication. This can be prevented by using a good sunscreen with UVA and UVB protection and avoiding exposure to sunlight.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Can You Reverse Aging? Regain Your Lost Youth With Derma Fillers!

Youth is something which is associated with vibrance. It can be said that over the course of time, there is a big impact of multiple factors on one's looks. No matter how much grace a woman may retain as she ages, her youthful looks are often at the receiving end of the passing times. There is an increasing demand to keep looking young or age gracefully as one may call it. Dermafillers are a great way to enhance and preserve one's youthful looks. 

Fillers are a very effective way to make a woman look younger and they are also very safe, as long as a person who is experienced is the one who is administering them. They are injections which contain a variety of components. One of the major ones happens to be Hyaluronic Acid. While this may seem to be just another name of a chemical to most people, it is very important as it is naturally present in everybody. 

In fact, it is a sugar which has a pretty big part to play in terms of the volume of the skin and its condition. Over time, the elasticity of the skin and how well it plumps the underlying tissues reduces. When a dermal filler is injected, it provides a boost of this sugar, which helps fight off the effect of ageing, and quite successfully so. 

The material that is injected through dermal filler is absorbed over the course of some months by the body. As a result of this, it is true that a person who has chosen dermal fillers to look younger will face a need to have this procedure done again every 10 months to a year.Some fillers although may last even upto two years! However, judging by the radically beneficial impact that shows almost immediately on the face, it can be said that going through the process again is something that a woman who has had dermal fillers before will think is surely worth it!

One of the biggest advantages of dermal fillers is the low-risk factor associated with it, unlike other methods. It is considerably safer than surgeries, which can have their own potential complications and also have longer recovery times. Apart from waiting for some swelling to subside, there is negligible recovery time for dermal fillers. As Plastic Surgeons study the face in detail and know about all the internal structure of the skin, muscle and bones they are one of the most qualified people to do derma fillers. When there is so much in favour of it, why not give dermal fillers a shot? They not only fill one’s face, but also fills one with the exuberance that comes with looking younger!

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Hello Everyone,

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.

If you want a consultation from me for hair transplant you can contact me via Lybrate. Thank you.
