Visited Dr. Deepak Devakar (Dermatologist) For Hair Transplant Surgery
I recommend the doctor
Happy with: Explanation of the health issueDoctor friendliness
Underwent hair transplant surgery performed by Dr.Deepak Devkar. Writing this after 1+year after procedure. The procedure lasts for about 5-6hrs with first half for extracting the hair follicles and second half for the transplant procedure (lunch was provided at the clinic).
Doctors expertise: Overall the doctor was very good in explaining the process making sure all the doubts were clarified. 100% safe choice especially since the process involves administration of local anesthesia.
The Process: Can be moderately painful with extreme care needed for upto two weeks (Best not to travel anywhere during this period). Swelling in the face is common after the procedure and temporary lasting for upto a week. Need to sleep inclined for few days and need to regularly apply saline spray. PRP injection was given during the procedure itself.
The good: The doctor is very skilled. Overall I'm satisfied with the final result and care post treatment was pretty good with doctor being quite responsive. This was vital for me since I visited from another city and flew out of the country after 2 weeks.
The not so good: Although result was satisfactory, it is not a 100%. The frontal areas could've been more dense, but the doctor drew a receded hairline during marking to save some follicles. Also the crown area is still sparse and scalp is easily visible under sunlight. Also need to take medication for 1+ year for ideal results (Minoxidil solution and finasteride tablets - which might have side effects for some although I haven't faced any problem). Since this is a cosmetic procedure it's only fair to compare the results and I have personally seen better results with more grafts transplanted. Pricing is a little steep for the kind of results I obtained.
Final words: The doctor is very skilled and reliable and have no regrets for getting the procedure done at his clinic and it has significantly changed my facial look for the better. The results were satisfactory (although not the best). The pricing per graft was a little steep but overall worth it.

thank you for your valuable feedback.
as this is a once in a life time procedure for many patients we take the utmost care to give the best results. the donor area availability of hairs for extractions vs the area of baldness which needs to be transplanted decides the final density of transplanted hair.
at our clinic dr.deepak himself performs the entire surgery from first hair to the last hair to make sure about safety and get best results. there are many places which are offering hair transplant for lower prices as they employ technicians and unqualified people who are operating on patients putting them at risk. at our clinic we dont want that risk to our patients.still keeping the prices reasonable at our clinic.
as baldness is a progressive condition the old existing hair has to be maintained to avoid further loss.
thank you again for for valuable and detailed feedback
