Hello everyone!

I am Kajol Rathod, Clinical Nutritionist and Dietician at Harleys Clinic, Andheri West, Mumbai. So today we are going to be addressing a topic which we all can relate to very easily and have experienced at some point in our lives. Hair Fall. So, one of the major causes of hairfall could be inadequate nutrition in the body. What is it about nutrition that could help you tackle your hair fall? First and foremost being proteins. Your hair is made up of a protein called keratin. Now you require protein as they are the building blocks.

They ensure renewal and regeneration of new hair cells, the hair follicles. Ensuring uptake of sufficient protein in the diet from dals, sprout, pulses, egg, fish, chicken, dairy products could ensure that your new hair follicles which are generated are healthy and the new hair growth would be lustrous. Moving on second most important thing would be vitamin and minerals levels in your body. If there is insufficient vitamins and minerals level in the body you might tend to lose hair.

You might have come across words like biotin, zinc, chromium etc. Big words but very easy to get minerals and vitamins. Ensure to have 3-4 vegetable servings and 2-3 servings everyday and your daily allowances are met. There could be situations in life as when you are under lot of stress, pregnancy, postnatal or you are someone who is watching your weight but you still want lustrous and healthy manes. At such situations supplementing the diet with additional nutrients is never a question. Make sure you eat a healthy nutritious diet and do not stress over the hair fall which would further aggravate it. Stress could be another factor which could be making you lose your hair.

Now apart from being in stress in other matters how you can manage it with your diet. Ensure taking in Vitamin C in the form of fruits like oranges, lemon, amla, guava or supplement your diet with additional Vitamin C supplement so that your stress is handled by your body. Overall maintaining a healthy diet and ensuring that you are living a stress-free life could be a key for you to not lose your hair. For more diet related queries or to book an appointment with us kindly contact us through lybrate.

Thank you so much!

Hello,<br/><br/>Myself Dr Shilpa Bansal consultant gynaecologist at Harleys Clinic, Mumbai at And...

Hello,

Myself Dr Shilpa Bansal consultant gynaecologist at Harleys Clinic, Mumbai at Andheri West.

Today I am going to talk about a common endocrinal abnormality imbalance which is happening known as Polycystic ovarian syndrome. According to the present statistics about 20 to 25% of Indian females suffered with it, Polycystic ovarian syndrome becomes a part of an Android excess problem there are other problem such as adenomas, hyperplasia of adrenal, stress and thyroid abnormalities which too mimic something like symptoms of Polycystic ovarian. In Polycystic ovarian syndrome we expect various signs and symptoms to trouble a lady, at the teenage this becomes the teenage crisis, symptoms like she has acne, she has weight, she has bald patches, hirsutism becomes the issue weight which is uncontrollable or which is very difficult to lose. These teenage prices after sometime do become reproductive age crisis or medial crisis, in medial crisis again she is struggling to conceive she is struggling to get her period back to normal, if unattended that time again leads to old age crisis. Old age, she is at risk of endometrial carcinoma, she become at risk of diabetes, she become at risk of atherosclerosis. Now after all of this the point is that we can't blame everything on hormones you get stressed you skip your periods and your hairs start falling and you blame it on hormones, not that. There are various causes for getting the symptoms as well, so correct diagnosis is very important that are we really dealing with PCOD or there is something else which needs to be attended. So now the situation is how to combat PCOS, how to handle the picture, first people who do not have it please don't get it. We have to understand the importance of discipline in life, we have to understand the difference of diet in 8th schedule in our daily life, we have to give importance to the sports in our daily activities in our daily schedules, this helps a woman not to become a PCOS. Moreover, thin lady does not mean a fit lady, if we eat a junk food, if we are induldged into activities which are not good that we all of us know comes with the price, she eventually would be the one of the candidates to become PCOS. People who are struggling at the moment with the PCOS, we need a group of people to handle PCOS like cosmetologist to handle pimples coming we need, a diet Counsellor to tell you what portions to be omitted, what portion to be started, how much you should be taking to combat that weight issues and for the gynaecologist we can give you certain medications to combat those acute crisis in which all the things are troubling you and we decides the time you need to take it up to. People who are struggling with the PCOS again have to understand that we have to take care of the diet, we have to take care of the exercise and we can put some of the medications but that is for sometime to combat those acute crisis. We need lot of more people like as a cosmetologist, who can take care of the acne hair, fall and hirsutism. We need of the diet counsellor who can talk to you about your diet which things can be added which can be omitted, we need a psychotherapist sometimes if there is a mood swings which are troubling a lot are there is a depression between a part of the PCOS. We can help you out with certain cases of infertility and because of PCOD, we can correct the menstrual irregularity through medication, till you reach your own target, till you did the right weight with you hoping to get in the end.

In case of further questions or any queries you can write to us through lybrate or you can contact Harleys clinic.

Hello,<br/><br/>Myself Dr Sumit Agarwal I am a board certified plastic surgeon and hair transplan...

Hello, Myself Dr Sumit Agarwal I am a board certified plastic surgeon and hair transplant specialist practicing at Harleys clinic in Mumbai and also a specialist plastic surgeon, practicing in Balloon Hospital in Dubai.

Today I would be discussing about hair fall in both males and females.  Hair fall causes anxiety in both males and females. The common causes for hair fall is a hereditary inheritance more commonly from the maternal family or hormonal disturbances like hypothyroidism or Polycystic ovarian syndrome PCOS. Other less common causes a micronutrient, deficiencies or cicatrical alopecia due to autoimmune conditions or post chemotherapy.

In the recent past, it has been observed that majorly the hair loss problems start with youngsters in early twenties age group which is primarily due to stress of the studies or due to excessive use of chemicals undergoing procedures or may be due to environmental factors like hard waters, ciboria, dandruff and other reasons.

So it is important before starting any hair loss treatment that you should get yourself evaluated by a physician or a hair specialist. The hair specialist will do the clinical examination of the scalp and the Folly scopic examination of the hair roots to find the cause of the hair fall . He may also ask for certain blood tests to find out micronutrient deficiencies like serum ferritin, serum Vitamin D3 and also for hormonal disturbances like thyroid profile.

And after this , your hair fall may be classified on the grades of the hair loss. It maybe an early grade where just hair thinning has started up or in advance grade where balding patch has already started. Not every patient is a candidate for hair transplant. Hair thinning patients may be treating accordingly with medications like multivitamin supplements and hair serum along with adjuvant therapy like Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) or Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) but if the balding settings patches then the hair transplant has to be considered.

For hair transplant procedure, political factors need to be considered before deciding for the procedure like age of the starting of hair loss, grade of hair loss, donor area sufficiency and if still there is any active hair fall which needs to be controlled first before embarking on hair transplant.

Hair transplant, there are two techniques of doing it - first is the Follicular Unit Transplant FUT and second is the Follicular Unit extraction or the FUE technique. The physician will discuss the details and pros and cons of the both the techniques. The results of the hair transplant procedure what you get , they are natural and permanent, these hairs grow forever. You can cut them, colour them and save them and even after the transplant have been done , the medical treatment needs to be still continued to maintain the existing hairs.

The medical treatment is a slow treatment - it takes some time for the effect to come so keep patient and just continue, sometimes there may be some hair shedding at the start of the medical treatment, so do not panic, it eventually gives good growth and it is a long term treatment so do not stop it abruptly ever. Always consult your physician before making any changes for your treatment.

If you have any further doubt or queries about the hair fall you can contact us through Lybrate.

Hair Transplant Surgery - Knowing The Advantages Of It!

Hair Transplant Surgery - Knowing The Advantages Of It!

Hair transplantation surgery is a procedure where the hair follicles are taken from a donor site (usually the side or back of the head) and implanted on the recipient site that is on the area of baldness. This is a common treatment for men with androgenic alopecia (male pattern baldness) where the hair follicles reduce due to the influence of androgenic hormones. It can also help women with female pattern baldness.

Many people have reservations about the procedure but hair transplantation comes with a number of advantages, such as:

Natural growth after surgery - The biggest and most obvious benefit of hair transplantation is that it improves your physical appearance and eliminates the problem of balding completely. This is because the implanted hair follicles continue their natural growth process after they have been transplanted. So, your hair does not look artificial. Premature bald spots often result in low self-esteem and self-confidence issues which can be effectively addressed by the surgery.

Uniform distribution of hair follicles. Hair transplantation with latest techniques gives natural distribution of hair and proper coverage to bald areas.

Easy procedure and no side effects - The operation is done under local anaesthesia. You will feel no pain throughout the procedure. Very comfortable procedure and you will be awake throughout the procedure. This surgery is done at the level of skin and this is not related to the brain. There is no side effect of this surgery. Today, the surgeons mostly use micro grafts which are placed in such a way that all bald spots are covered with minimal effort.

One-time procedure - Hair transplantation is the only permanent solution of baldness. No medical treatment for baldness is permanent. Once hair transplantation has been done, it lasts a lifetime. Since the grafts are made of your own hair, they continue to grow naturally throughout your lifetime allowing you to cut or style your hair as you wish.

Hair Transplant - Knowing About The FUE Technique!

Hair Transplant - Knowing About The FUE Technique!

Hair transplant is a surgical procedure that is used to move hair follicles from one location in the body to another. The part from which the hair follicles are taken is known as the “donor site” and the location where it is moved to is called the “recipient site”. Patients who undergo hair transplants often come across the terms FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction).

Follicular Unit Extraction is a procedure which involves the singular extraction of each hair follicle without any removal of strip of tissue. Random removal of hair follicle takes place which causes minimal and unnoticeable changes in the donor area. Fewer amounts of hair are transplanted as the follicles are removed one at a time which makes it beneficial for the removal of lesser hair as compared to the traditional FUT procedure.

The Procedure

In FUE, singular removal of hair follicles is done using specialized equipment that generally consists of a needle which has a diameter less than one mm. The needle is targeted at the base of the hair follicles. At this spot, a circular incision is made. Another instrument, similar to tweezers, is used to dislodge the hair follicle from the scalp.

Post- Surgery Management:

Stretches are not needed in Follicular Unit Extraction. Additionally, there is almost no post procedural discomfort. Since the occurrence of any scar is absent, healing time is generally less. However, puncture marks which have a diameter of 1 mm or less are common. These marks heal by themselves within 3 to 7 days. It takes three to six months for the hair to look natural once again. The initial scars heal quickly and daily activities can be resumed the very next day.

Advantages:

Perspective of the surgeon:

  1. Lesser manpower, when compared to FUT, is needed i.e. a single doctor with a maximum of two assistants can run a clinic.
  2. Lesser equipment is needed.
  3. Graft preparation is minimal.

Perspective of the Patient:

  1. Can sport short hair.
  2. Less post-operative recovery time.
  3. Microscopic scars in the donor site are nearly invisible.
  4. Body hair can be used for added density only in this technique.
  5. Can be used to cover pre-existing scar of surgery.

Hymenoplasty - Knowing The Procedure & Benefits Of It!

Hymenoplasty - Knowing The Procedure & Benefits Of It!

These days everything is available, including a new body. You can get a new nose, jaw, perky breasts and yes, a brand new hymen as well, all through plastic surgery. The procedure of hymen restoration or reconstruction is called hymenoplasty, hymenorrhaphy, virginity surgery or just hymen reconstruction surgery. The hymen, as you know is a ring-like membrane in a woman’s vagina. It usually ruptures due to vigorous exercise or sexual penetration. This is also usually the reason many women, egged on by families, decide to go for the reconstruction of their hymen because certain cultures value female virginity and losing one’s virginity before marriage is a taboo.

Benefits: The benefits of hymenoplasty , if any, are that it allows women to take control of their futures in conservative societies. If she has been sexually active pre-marriage, she can still decide to go for a traditional marriage without the fearof ostracization. Hymenoplasty surgery restores the ability of the hymen to bleed at intercourse on the wedding night. Victims of sexual assault can also use the procedure to get over the traumatic event and its memories. Some women like to get a hymen rejuvenation to feel young again.

Procedure: Hymenorrhaphy can be done months or years after a woman loses her virginity. It must be performed only by a plastic surgeon. In this procedure, the torn edges of the hymen are sutured back together. If done correctly, the touched-up hymen appears as good as new and bleeds on sexual penetration. Sutures dissolve by themselves after a few days. Hospital stay is only 5-6 hours post hymenorrhaphy. The procedure is done under anesthesia and it usually takes less than an hour to finish. Patients are discharged from hospital the same day and are advised not to do any vigorous activity like playing games, climbing stairs, and of course sex.

Risk involved: There are no documented risks of hymenoplasty and there are no complications either, if the surgeon is good. If an adverse reaction occurs, it’s temporary. Usually any discomfort in the private parts and swelling in the outer parts of the vagina usually subsides within days.

Recovery: The recovery time is minimal and the patient can return to work next day, if she wants. Complete healing, though, takes approximately 4 weeks. Good hygiene is important to avoid infection. Patients are advised to contact their doctor immediately after a hymenorrhaphy if there is feverabdominal painbleeding from vagina or the reconstructed hymen.
