Meet Shashank (Name changed, for privacy reasons), a 24 year old young gentleman from India who was suffering from Grade 3 hair loss based on Norwood scale.
Shashank was troubled with hair loss, especially at such a young age, and this made him really uncomfortable. His friends would also make comments about his hair loss and thinning hair, and this started bothering him.
To combat his hair loss issues, he turned to different shampoos, tablets, allopathic medications, homeopathic medications, onion oils, coconut oil etc. After months of trying different types of treatments/products and seeing no results, He finally started considering the option of a Hair Transplant surgery. He was recommended to meet Dr. Ankit Gupta by his family physician, and he finally decided to visit us at Panache Aesthetics.
When Shashank came to visit us, He looked like this –
He had been avoiding the idea of Hair Transplant due to pricing issues, however, he found that the treatment option at Panache Aesthetics was at a very reasonable price, one he could really afford.
After an in-depth consultation with Dr Ankit Gupta, All his questions were answered and he finally decided to go through with the surgery.
The day of the surgery came, and we started with the marking, planning and hair line design stage –
For Shashank, We decided to go ahead with FUE hair transplant, where hair follicles are taken from a donor area (usually the back of the head) and then planted in the areas where hair density needs to be provided.
These are the pictures just after the hair transplant, of the hair-line and the donor area –
After the procedure, Shashank was discharged with proper bandage and after care so that the transplanted site can be well protected. He was asked to visit the clinic again in 5-7 days for his first head wash after the surgery.
We had been following up with him regularly to make sure he has the best recovery possible. He shared the following pictures during this recovery period –
Fun Fact (not so fun maybe): The hair in the transplanted area begins to fall after 2-3 months! However, there is nothing to worry about, and this is the natural hair cycle. Fresh hair growth will come in the area, after that.
And then finally after a period of 6-7 months, Shashank witnessed his final results. This is how they turned out –
After 9 months, Shashank was a changed man!!
