Does Hair Transplantation work?
What is DHT?
How do DHT and FUE differ?
- As the grafts are immediately implanted, the exposure of grafts to external environment (transit time) is reduced from 4-5 hours to few minutes. This improves survival of follicles and better outcome.
- We have revolutionized hair transplantation by the DHT technique. Usage of patented implanters has enabled us to incorporate the No Root Touch technique. Thus, reducing graft damage
- Surgery by DHT technique is shorter by 50% as compared to FUE.
- Chances of graft survival is almost 100%
Is the transplanted hair permanant?
Is DHT more advanced than the FUE & FUT ?
Why DHT over FUE ?
- In DHT , the grafts are planted in the scalp as soon as possible. Since the out of body time is least , the chance of damage by mechanical handling, dessication, chemical and thermal damage is least.
- We also use the special patented implanters which ensures No Root Handling and no chances of crushing the grafts during transplantation.
- DHT technique is done mostly in sitting position where as FUE is done in lying position. Sitting position enables extraction and plantation of grafts simultaneously. Two or more specialists can transplant the grafts from side and front position, reducing the overall surgery time by 30-50%.
- We use the best quality magnification and Carl Zeiss loupes with LED lights with 4-5X magnification. These loupes allow seeing the smallest hair follicles which are likely to be missed by the other loupes and magnification systems. Sometimes the small hair follicles are not seen by low quality magnification and may be damaged. Carl Zeiss loupes prevent the damage of these delicate grafts.
- The surgical team is led by few rare brains of doctors trained from AIIMS, New Delhi. All the major steps are done by the doctors and not left to the technicians, unlike most of the centers.
- At our center, the grafts are always under the vigilant eyes of the doctors. In DHT , the chances of graft damage is least unlike FUE which is primarily done by the technicians.
- We plan the individualized hairline, define the layout, extract and implant the grafts with extreme precaution.
- We attend most of the national and international hair transplantation conferences. Deliver talks in the meetings, seminars, conferences.
Who will be performing the procedure, the doctors or technicians ?
This varies amongst different clinics. It is unfortunate, but there are clinics where only technicians are involved in the surgery. Technicians are not well versed with the artictic aspect of transplantation which is important for a natural looking result.This puts the patient in danger as the technicians are not equipped to handle emergencies.
At DHT, only qualified and experienced doctors perform the surgery. We are committed to providing the best results and patient satisfaction and safety is the utmost importance to us.
