This is a story of a true miracle in my view because the previous dermatologist, who was also a very reputed and well rated dermatologist in Bangalore, told me that my facial melanosis on my left cheek area may not go away. I had been visiting her every few months for two years with no hope and none of the topical face treatment making any improvement to my situation. We finished our last consultation after she said laser treatment may worsen the situation and now the only option was to apply sunscreen heavily to avoid further damage. While I appreciated her honesty I found it hard to believe that my melanosis situation didn't improve. I started looking for acclaimed dermatologist on Practo because I was was disappointed and found it hard to believe that melanosis would have no treatment. With just one video consultation and a a few photos of my face, Dr Shashidhar prescribed a stronger steroid topical cream that removed the blemish in just FOUR days. What didn't change for 2 years was fixed by doctor in just a few days with the right treatment. I truly appreciate doctor and I am glad I was able to find him through Practo and do a video consultation with him.
I got infection and skin inflammation from using sheet masks and turmeric, both are skin irritants I believe. Doctor prescribed me to use a steroid cream in finger tips proportion for 3 weeks. I however have some other corticosteroid solution at home and used that and my skin improved almost within one night. Although corticosteroid are not intended for long use, using it for a few weeks is absolutely fine.
Very positive experience. Doctor was very professional throughout my treatment. After six months of mu transplant great result. I've finally got my hair back.
Dr.was very prompt and friendly which made me tension free and could pin point the problem.
Medication started as per his advice.The medicines prescribed was readily available.
His accessment and response was quick .Need be will be forwarding the link to others.
I had couple of skin problems. one is allergy and another is back acne. but the doctor is like one time visiting he will write prescription for only one problem. so for the other problem I need to book appointment again ** **** ** ** *** ******** ************** ****** ****** so don't recommend for all the middle class people. some 4 lines of prescription he wrote for one skin problem and to write 2more lines of prescription for other skin problem he was denying and told to visit again.***** ***** ****** *****
Doctor is very friendly and explain everything before treatment. We are very happy with the way the doctor treated us. My hairs also growing above my expectation. I would recommend doctor sir for even my friends and family members.
I visited him for hair transplant. Cost was reasonable and results are good. Doctor and all staffs are friendly. I dono about other problems, but hair problem got resolved after visiting this center. If you have confusion to select a good doctor or center to do a hair transplant, better choose this doctor because I did lot of research.
Its a genuine review after 6 months am posting here.
I like doctors talk good response and very kind
And I sagest to my friends also next I will call and come my wife for hair treatment
First of all i want to thank Dr Shashidhar and his team,
I want to share my story here to explain the pain in life and how the doctor and his team helped me
I starting balding as early as i was in my school from the sides of my head (male pattern baldness)
Since i always had lustrous hair i was always ignorant of the fact that i am going bald, every year it kept getting worse, I oiled my hair and did everything possible but nothing, i was still balding, though because of precautions it was a bit slow now, but i was enough bald that people used to notice easily and life was an agony, i had made the decision that i will be nothing more in life now (people who have this issue will really understand the pain).
Finally when the front of my hair was completly gone i decided to get my hair transplanted. In a city like bangalore there are many options and honestly i approached many doctors as well (I am not going to name any) but the kind of confidence i got after talking to dr shashidhar on phone was not compared to the doctors that i had met face to face.
I decided to go ahead with dr shashidhar on a phone call. (It is impossible for a guy like me or anyone to make such a decision on a phone call) but i bet you talk to the doctor once and then you verify what i say here.
Extremely friendly doctor: More like a guardian or an elder than a doctor.
The actual day: I started from my home at 6:30 the doctor and staff arrived at time by 7 - 7:30 we did all the formalities (very simple boiler plate) the procedure started at about 8
The pain during the process was only the first and the second injection, thats it done, you wont know anything after this.
The extraction phase was complete in almost 2 hours and then i had brought some lunch from home which i had, after that i had the transplant phase (10 min gap overall) In the transplant phase again the pain was only the first injection.
it took 3 hours for the transplant and after this i went to my home the very same day right at 2 o clock
so 6am to 2pm was the overall time and i was back home by 3
Medicines were provided at the clinic itself (so you dont have to go somewhere to get them) although you need to pay for it seperately.
Doctor had advised to put saline for next two days and take out the bandage on the 3rd day, (There is a bandage on the donor area)
from 5th day the headwash started and i use only aquaguard water until this day (6 months later)
Please listen to the hair washing and all the instructions from the doctor and follow relegiously what he says, put minoxidil eat medicines and do everything exactly as the doctor says. Dont miss anything
1-20 days hair will grow and you will feel like you already have head full or hair, but you will notice that with every wash the hair will start to fall off.
you wont notice anything upto 1.5 months minimum (this 1.5 month is from the day of transplant) so lets say you got transplant on 1 jan then till 20th jan you will see hair then they will go by like 30jan
then till 15 feb you will see nothing
then by 20 feb or something you will see like very very small hair
by march end you will clearly see all your head covered with all black hair, and then by april or may you can create spikes or hairstyle stuff
about the doctor: Extremly friendly and always there on whatsapp or call and will always respond to even all the queries no matter how repetetive and how many times you ask them. doctor is the best example of how doctors should be, very patient and always giving you the confidence that you need
Dr Shashidhar is amazing. Trust me guys I had lost a lot hair and was almost bald. But now I am surprised looking at the results. Initially I was hesitant to go to a doctor for my hair loss and balding problem but I am glad I did make a move to go visit a dox and I am so lucky to have chosen Dr Shashidhar. I would recommend him anyday to anyone with hair fall problems. Dont wait if you have a problem, reach out to Dr Shashidhar and you will yourself realise why I am recommending him. I had an amazing experience. The best part is he will listen to each and every word patiently and is always there for you over call or whatsapp. Best I have seen till date.
PS: This is a genuine review. I did my transplant on Sept and in 6months the effects is just fantastic. Trust me folks. Go for it.
