How does PLCSC go about it?

Hair transplant surgery at PLCSC involves 4 simple steps:

  • Initial consultation
  • Medication & Preparation for Surgery
  • Surgery
  • Post-Surgery Care

Initial Consultation


Patients can either opt for a single sitting or multiple sessions which is completely dependent on the area that needs to be “filled” as part of the surgery.

Medication & Preparation for Surgery


PLCSC carefully follows the  steps to be undertaken to help you prepare for the surgery. It is an important process and has to be followed meticulously.



Surgery in itself is a precise but painless procedure. PLCSC follows a tried and tested approach that includes the following medical steps:

Post Surgery Care


Post surgery, the transplanted hair falls slowly within two to six weeks. New hair grows in the treated area within 10 weeks to the next six months.

PLCSC Hair Transplant Consultation

Initial Consultation

Patients at PLCSC have the liberty to choose from either the FUT or FUE processes. You can either opt for a single sitting or multiple sessions which is completely dependent on the area that needs to be “filled” as part of the surgery. However, you are always explained pros and cons of both the methods.

During the first session in FUT or FUE, the anterior hairline is established, the face framed and the bald area from the anterior position to the vertex is wrapped. Utmost care is taken to cover the frontal area of the scalp. The crown is worked on only if the recipient has more blood supply than the donor’s site. Even the number of follicles necessary to cover the bald area during the first session varies.

PLCSC - Hair Transplant Surgery


Seven vital steps we practice to carry out successful transplantation of hair
Local anaesthesia mixed with adrenaline is infiltrated to the donor area
A strip of tissue is extracted which is closed with fine sutures
The tissue strips are sliced into thinner strips isolating the follicular units (slivering)

Nerves that supply blood to the recipient site is blocked before infiltrating it with a solution to prevent swelling
The recipient area is slit with an 18-gauge needle to achieve the required density
The area is lapped with methylene blue solution to make the slits prominent
Finally, the follicles are individually implanted after washing in the solution

Post Surgery Care

After the surgery is completed the transplanted hair slowly falls off within 2 to 6 weeks. New hair will start reappearing in the treated area within 10 weeks and move upwards for the next 6 months.

Initially, you might feel your hair density is thin but its length and diameter increases with time. The final results are assessed 10-12 months after the surgery after which you can plan for the additional sessions.

Few signs to indicate you need the additional session include:

  • Large bald area
  • The extra density required for crown area
  • Hair loss resumption of native hair after first transplantation session
  • The result from the first session was unsatisfactory
