Here's a List to Consider Before Hair Transplant

Sanjay Parashar, Consultant Plastic Surgeon, Cocoona Centre for Aesthetic Transformation, shares a list of standard practices you must look out for:

  • The procedure should be performed in an accredited and well equipped medical centre with proper sterility and surgery protocols.

  • Only a team of qualified and licensed doctors and technicians should be involved.

  • The patient must be evaluated clinically and medically thoroughly to ensure he or she is an ideal candidate and healthy enough to undergo the procedure.

  • All medications including local anaesthesia should be administered by qualified doctors after checking the content and expiry dates, and in a controlled manner.

  • Continuous monitoring of the patient is mandatory by using pulse oximetry to measure oxygen levels throughout the procedure and blood pressure monitoring.

  • FUT i.e. strip harvesting (a way in which hair is harvested) should be performed by a surgeon qualified in managing scalp wounds, not even a general physician.

  • FUE i.e. follicular harvesting (a way in which hair is harvested) should be performed either by a surgeon, dermatologist or a qualified allopathic medical doctor.

  • Hair grafting should be performed by qualified and trained medical technicians under direct supervision of the doctors.

  • The patient should be discharged after proper monitoring and assessment by the senior qualified doctor.

  • Regular follow up protocol should be undertaken to ensure safe and effective outcome of the procedure.
