I am often asked this question by my patients and friends alike.
I would today like to address this common question!
The essentials of a successful hair transplant are-
1. The choice of your surgeon
2. The aftercare
By far the single most important variable towards a successful hair transplant is the surgeon you choose. You would choose your surgeon with due diligence through online research, consulting with the surgeon, and seeing his results. Once the decision is made you need to know where in India his practice is located. This is important since some cities in India are much cleaner and therefore safer while you recover.
Chandigarh is known as the most modern Indian city, by far the cleanest city of India, and its proximity to the Himalayas makes it the ideal destination for your procedure and recovery before taking the flight back home. Most of my patients recover in the salubrious surroundings of the Himalayas at either of these places-
1. Timber Trail Heights, Parwanoo.
2. Kasauli (11,000 ft ASL)
3. Shimla (The summer capital of the erstwhile British Empire in India)
The first 3 days after a hair transplant are crucial to the outcome. Care and environment you are in during this vital period shall go a along way in determining your eventual result.
