Question: For Hair Transplant, I have visited most of the clinic, however not able to take decision, where i should do the treatment. Lots of inputs.. Could you please someone take me out from this confusion.

1 Clinic is telling they will do PRP and hair transplant and take 1.5, I am ready but not sure whether they are capable. Please. And is PRP is really working ???

I am in Bangalore, please advise me where should i go. I visited Dr. Venkatram as well..

Dear XXXXXXX
Thanks for your query.

Hair Transplant is a specialized procedure and also an expensive one. The results depend upon the treating surgeon. You should opt for a surgeon who has vast experience and photographs of previous cases treated by him. PRP alone has no use but is done with hair transplantation to enhance the effect.

There are reviews written by our users about doctors in our listing, those can guide you for a better doctor in your locality. You can search for a doctor in your area at WWW.WWWW.WW

Thank you so much for the answer Dr XXXXXXX

In an ambiguity to select the doctor after reading all the blogs. Whether i should go for Dr. Venkatram Or HairLine Clinic (Dr Dinesh). Could you please advise the name. Or else any other option. Or please advise, how should I chose the doctor. Please advise.. I am not able to take decision. (I visited both of them and showed so many photos with past experience). Please advise if you would like me to call. I hope you will save me & my life with your decision.

Dear XXXXXXX
Thanks for your follow up query.
Dr. Venkatraman Mysore is a better option.
He is one of the earliest dermatologist in india who started hair transplantation. He has been training many dermatologists under him for transplantation. U can take my reference if u wish.

I had a lumbar puncture last Friday that was very painful when the nerve would float in to the needle. It would cause pain in the right leg. Two days ago that leg and buttock area became very painful. Is it possible it inflammed the sciatic nerve and will it clear up?

So, basically, the other day my girlfriend & I were unergoing some sexual beheviour (She was quite vigeriously giving me a handjob) but it all felt fine, yeah. But I ve never actually stretched my foreskin back myself, whereas from her force, she managed to get it back quite some way.Since this (Yesterday, 17 hours ago) my foreskin has come back up, but only, this time it isn t completely covering my bellend, whereas it was before. 90% is covered, but the very top is visable, as if the foreskin is too.. floopy , or loose to cover my bellend back up again. It is literally just a circle shape at the top of my penis, and that is the only part which isn t covered up, but I feel like it should be. I m not really sure what to do/If I should be worried.I m 16 and not circumcised.

Hi Sir, I'm a 24 year old male facing hairfall problem since 3 years.. I take good diet and even i dont have hereditary hairfall issue, as my dad has very thick hair even at 62. Middle part of my hair got thinner, but worst thing is that I'm losing more hair on the front side and bald patches started to appear. My scalp gets oily by the end of the day and if i dont go for a head bath daily in the morning, i will lose more hair. To regain my hair, i try with hair oil massage every night..but that is when I lose maximum percentage of hair in the day. with this fear, from the past 6 months, i started using herbal shampoo. doesn't observe any difference. Fortunately, i don't have white hair. At this age, i cant afford for hair transplantation, please suggest me any solution by which i can regain my hair.
