Today is an age of “look good and feel good”. So when you suffer from acute uncontrollable hair fall, it is a cause for extreme worry. You know you are facing an impending baldness. But take heart: the advent of new hair grafting procedures today have led to long-term solutions.
I am a man in my 50’s and I hated to look at myself in the mirror owing to my baldness. My fast-receding hairline led to depression and low self-esteem. Using various oils and other remedial measures prescribed by doctors were not working at all for me. But I have finally regained my confidence and youthful appearance after a successful hair restoration surgery. I have started loving myself again.
At the beginning of the hair transplantation process, it is very important to be under the care of a reputed surgeon representing a well-known clinic. On my friend’s suggestion, I learnt about PLCSC hair transplant clinic and scheduled an appointment with Dr. Maneesh Sonthalia. I consider myself very fortunate to have been treated at this very reputed clinic in the city. It provided me with the best advice and care before and after the surgery.
On the day of the appointment, Dr. Sonthalia briefed me about the two types of hair transplant techniques prevalent in Kolkata. These are the FUE and FUT methods. The latter seemed a better option for me although I was informed it might give me a mild linear scar. I wanted to avoid the multi-dotted diffuse scarring of the FUE method. The doctor discussed at length about my medical history and explained to me the procedure as well as the post-transplant effects. He prescribed me medicines to reduce my hair fall and improve the hair quality in the rest of my scalp.
The surgery was painless since anesthesia was administered locally. As informed to me earlier, hair grafts were obtained from the donor zone at the back of my scalp. I had a feeling of mild pinches but they were very tolerable. I was told to lie on my back for the rest of the process. I was very relaxed as I knew I was under the safe hands of Dr. Sonthalia and his team. The surgery lasted about seven hours.
Post-surgery, I was informed that I could wash my scalp only after three days. During the discharge formalities, the doctor prescribed me medicines, medicated sprays as well as a medicated shampoo.
There was a mild swelling on my forehead but no other discomfort. I took a week’s rest at home to recuperate. After that, seeing myself in a new avatar really made me feel good and confident about myself again! I was back on my feet with renewed energy, vigour and self-esteem.
After almost 30 days, I lost the new hair but there was re-growth. As prescribed, I continued to take the medicines and apply the shampoo. After six months, I had my first haircut and life for me was normal again!
I am very happy about my decision to opt for hair transplantation. Full marks to the entire unit of PLCSC which really did a fantastic job in giving me a new lease of life. Dr. Sonthalia, with years of experience, is one of the best surgeons in the realm of hair transplantation. He, with his team of medical experts, is providing world-class facilities and treatment in Kolkata. That too, at a very affordable price. I strongly recommend PLCSC to anyone who is in need of a hair transplant!
