It's the most commonly observed phenomena, and the success rate of hair transplant surgery is in the range of 95%-98%.

They just require a larger volume of hair to cover up the balding spot, which is where the complication arises.

 

Seek consultation from a surgeon, refer our page - Hair Transplant Surgeons.

  • This surgery wouldn't require hospitalization, but will take hours and may need multiple sessions too.
  • The cost of hair transplant ranges from Rs. 25 to Rs. 45 per graft, which is inclusive of tax as well. And each graft will consist of approximately 1 to 3 hair follicles.
  • So for 3,500 grafts, it should cost you rs 87,500 in the least. But incurred charges may differ from our estimated prices, because factors such as experience/location of surgeon, facilities/infrastructure of clinic, and whatever complications that your hair/scalp presents with, will have a pivotal role in determining the resultant charges.
  • For transgender individuals and those with curly hair, this procedure might present unique challenges as well.
  • Hair transplant is supposed to be permanent, but hair will shed and grow depending on its phases, just like how your natural hair does.
  • To understand price differences owing to distinct surgical techniques and city-wise impact, our writeup can be extremely helpful for you - Cost of Hair Transplant in India.
  • Additionally, our page - Hair Transplant Surgeons, will help you get in touch with relevant practitioners.
  • Hair transplant is a surgery that involves extraction & transplantation of hair follicles from one spot to another, but assume if your donor's spot has extremely less hair to provide the required coverage for your balding spot, then you can also enquire regarding biofiber synthetic hair implants.
    They are not permanent however, and may cost more, so find out about it.

Ideal facial for oily skin should include deep cleansing mixed with exfoliation, toning, mask, and protection. Masks help in removing excess oil, and shortening pores, while protection shields your skin from harmful u.v rays and its side effects.

The price ranges from Rs. 200 to Rs. 5000 depending on the array of issues that they cover and efficiency.

You should also consider consulting skin specialists - Dermatologists in India.

Based on the extent to which your acne & spots are raised, you can explore options such as:

  • Laser treatment: Rs. 5,000 to Rs. 22,000
  • Microdermabrasion: Rs. 1500 to Rs. 6000
  • Chemical peels: Rs. 1,000 to Rs. 10,000 per session

They can be performed on people of all skin types, but if you have any other skin condition such as acne/pigmentation/etc, then there might be some complications.

 

The actual cost can exceed the estimated range, because of factors like location/experience of the clinician, severity of concern, number of sessions, area covered, and value-added services.

For prescription medicines and topical creams, we think it would be better that you consult a dermatologist, because we don't know how sensitive your skin could possibly be, and what internal damages it may have sustained till now, or is capable of sustaining further.
