Hello! This is Dr. Shaurya Rohatgi, consultant dermatologist and hair transplant surgeon from Mumbai.

I will be addressing the various myths that are associated with hair transplant which creates a lot of confusion and fears in the minds of patients. Firstly hair transplant is just a re-arrangement of hair from the back to the front of the scalp which is effected with baldness and loss of hairline. Earlier techniques required cutting and suturing which would create an ugly scar at the back of the scalp. The latest FUE technique which we use is safe done under local anesthesia and is a scarless procedure.

We simply extract hair from the back of the hair which are called follicular units and implant them to the front thus creating a new hairline in a balding patient. Hence this procedure is called Follicular Unit Extraction. There are no cuts, sutures and bleeding are minimal. Since this is a minor surgery post-procedure period is comfortable, painless and the patient can resume work shortly. To get back to youthful look say no to baldness and say yes to hair transplant please make an appointment with me at
