For us, at Vinciht, Hair transplant is an overall experience. It is not just about your for hair loss treatment but also as a way to help you get back you identity and self confidence. We stand with you throughout the process, helping you understand what hair transplant is, what we can do for you with our cutting edge technology and state of art techniques and what you may expect at the end of the procedures. We stress on communication because we must understand your concerns. We also believe in transparency of information. We shall work on designing your hairline the natural lines, our team of experts along with our surgeons will work on successful graft extractions and transplants, we shall guide you through your post-operative care, help you with your recuperation and advise you on any additional therapy that you may need.
We view consultation as one of the most critical phases of our introduction to each other. At this point of time we like to utilize to answer your queries. More importantly we need you to feel comfortable with us to share with us any of your concern, fear or doubts that you may have. It is of absolute importance that we are able to gain your confidence, help you with a solution and guide you through to help you understand about hair transplant, the procedures involved and its consequences.
On our part, we take this opportunity to scrutinize your candidature to evaluate and analyse if hair transplant can resolved your hair loss problem. Some of the parameters that are considered in the process include your hair structure, family history, authenticity etc. This evaluation helps us to conclude if hair transplant can yield a satisfactory outcome for you. In case, you have a rather minimalistic shot at hair transplant being your solution, we shall work with you towards finding an alternative treatment.
It would be helpful for you to get a quick rundown on how we scrutinize your candidature. It starts with a close analysis of your hair quality and the health of your scalp under a strong magnifying instrument. Our doctors use a hand held microscope to check the areas to ensure nothing is missed. Once this is done, they will measure your hair density simultaneously analyzing the density of hair follicles that are available at the donor site. Measurements of you existing hair, the bald patch and the patch which will be the donor site are all taken. After working out the calculations, we shall be able to give you an estimation of how many grafts would be needed to cover your bald patch, which method would be the most suited, if you have enough do not hair available for a transplant or if we need to look at other parts of the body for donor hair etc. Since a hair transplant procedure is always performed under anesthesia, your anesthetist will also consult with you and your doctors will run a cardiogram to ensure the health of your heart.
The final stage of our consultation is perhaps the most awaited one. Here is when we shave your head off for 1 to 2 mm. Post this we start drawing your hairline on the computer after we have document the most vital information – the donor area. The computer image is generated with a lot of parameters in mind like your authenticity, your facial bone structure, the availability of donor hair to name a few. This is where there would be a lot of discussion. Once you are happy with what you on see on the computer we finalize the look. We draw the precise hairline on you and take pictures from different angles to prepare for the procedure.
At Vinciht we work as a team. We meet at the end of the day and the procedures lined up for the next day are discussed. What we aim to do in these meetings is to tale our cases, for suggestions and expert views. This not only keeps the team informed about the patients, which often prove helpful in making our patients feel comfortable when greeted by someone who knows his or her case. It also helps in maintain a balanced and well oiled team work.
It is natural to be little nervous and anxious before the procedure begins. We understand this. However we also need you to be relaxed and have faith in us. So before the procedure begins you are free to use out recreational room and pick up any movie or songs or even a book that you may want to watch, listen to or read. Our house masseur will give you a back massage and you have the option to chose a leg massage during the procedure too. Since hair transplants are carried out with local anesthesia patients will feel the need to take a bio break. Restroom breaks are possible to taken during the procedure. During this time our anesthesiologist will also come and see you to talk to you about pain management.
You will be asked to change into sterilized clothing and will be seated in the special chair made especially for hair transplants. It is a comfortable chair which will help you relax during the procedure. It must be mentioned here that during the extraction of the donor hair from the back of your head, you shall be sitting.
Once you are comfortable, your vitals will be checked to ensure smooth anesthetic inducement. You will be monitored throughout the process too. The donor area will also be marked now so that during the procedure the doctors know the safe donor area and shall extract hair follicles from the correct site.
You will experience the procedure begin with the local anesthesia injected into your scalp. As the scalp becomes numb, the extraction of the follicles from the donor site will begin. Doctors will be using special magnifiers which will enables them to see beyond the surface root of the hair at the scalp till 1mm below the scalp. It is our innovative cross polarization technology that makes this possible.
Extractions are carried out using state of art surgical punches which are meant for manual handling. We use punches of different sizes to ensure minimal invasion for each patient. Our punches vary anywhere between 0.6 mm to 0.85 mm. At Vinciht for extraction of follicles we use a technique called the sequential or DES technique. We do not stress on speed over quality but we can safely transplant upto a thousand grafts in one day.
You are constantly monitored during the procedure. Surgeons are kept updated about the graft quality being taken. Hence immediate actions are taken to make adjustments if needed. Once a graft is taken out that part of the donor area is immediately covered with medication.
Once the grafts are out we taken care of, all the pre cautions to preserve each graft. Simultaneously with the extraction, grafts are scrutinized under magnifying equipments and segregated. The selected grafts are placed in a petri dish with hypotermosol and liposomal. The dish is then placed over an electric chilling device.
Once the extractions are done, it is time to move to the recipient area. This is going to be the outcome area. The area gets anaesthetized. Once the effect takes off, the surgeon starts making quick incisions, big enough for the grafts to be implanted. At Vinciht customized and sterilized blades are prepared in accordance to the length of the hair and the distribution of the grafts for this process. We usually take a lunch break at this point of time. With pre implant incisions already made before lunch, implanting becomes easy. But it is crucial to keep the grafts moisturized till the procedure. This is where the ring graft storage device comes in handy. This device helps in keeping the grafts moist enough till it is time for the implants. Once the procedure resumes, the transplant team quickly implants the grafts using forceps. In.the mean while, the team constantly is ensuring that the grafts are placed in the natural direction and angle of the natural hair. Since the implants can be put into place only in the premade incisions, the ratio of error is negated to almost a zero here. However it should be understood that the number of grafts implanted will be directly proportional to the denseness of the hair when it grows.
Once the procedure is over in about 4 hours the surgical area is cleaned and the surgeon runs an immediate scrutiny of the job done. Once this is done, you will be given the post operative instructions and will be handed over a kit . This kit contains your post-operative medications, gauze, an ice pack and a bottle of liposomal ATP spray. You may rest till your oaky to go home, wearing a customized cap which would be provided to you. You will be called for check up and a hair wash next day.
