Hair transplantation means, harvesting or taking out live hair roots from “Permanent Zone”(DONOR AREA)& implanting them in the bald area(RECIPIENT AREA). After growth, these hairs can be cut or trimmed on a permanent basis. These can be shampooed or dyed as per your wish. These hairs don’t require any maintenance medicines.
These transplanted hair roots behave in the same manner as the hair from the DONOR AREA from where they are extracted ( known as “DONOR DOMINANCE”). So it is mandatory for surgeon to judge the “Permanent Donor Zone” in a particular patient. So the “EXPIRIENCE & KNOWLEDGE of SURGEON” is very important.

- Marking of Anterior(front) hair line & recipient site- calculating the number of grafts required

Achieving Higher Density in Hair Transplant By Multi Slit Knife invented by Dr. Pradip Atodaria, Surat, Gujarat,India
Dr. Atodaria has invented an instrument for achieving this type of good results& instrument is under patent. The instrument is Multi Slit Knife which can make 02 to 15 slits in a single stroke at the desired distance, depth & angle. One can easily achieve a very good density with this innovative instrument.
After harvesting the grafts, they should be preserved in cold temperature so as to minimise the ischemic damage to grafts. We maintain the cold chain & we reduce the “out of body time” of graft to a lager extentto give best possiblethe survival& growth rate of the transplanted hairs. It is our speciality.
We always prefer to use minimal touch/handling technique to give best survival rate of the grafts.
We have our own indigenous techniques of doing hair transplant without shaving the scalp hairs
We do hair transplant with the help of the “Implanter Pen” which is also developed by Dr. Atodaria & is under “Patent”.
We at our center take care in each and every step of the procedure like giving a micro slits for implantation, adapting non touch technique method of implantation, maintain low temperatures and implanting at good speeds resulting in drastically increased survival rate of grafts when compared to the older methods
HT surgery is not a one-man show; it requires a big team of surgical assistants that is well adept at the graft dissection and implantation.
Majority of centers don’t keep their own technicians/staff & call roaming technicians.
Even many doctors don’t do anything & your hair transplant surgery is done by technicians only. So you need to confirm what will be done by the treating doctor & what will be done by technicians these before you decide to go for procedure at that centre. We allow one of your friend/relative to remain present in operation theatre to witness that your hair transplant is done according to the commitments given by us.
