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..

How is Hairline International Clinic.

Anyone please advise, I will be grateful

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.

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.

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 was diagnosed with breast cancer last month and decided to have a bilateral mastectomy though the cancer was in my right breast. I was born with a deformed left hand but never really diagnosed for anyjthing. After my mastectomy the plastic surgeon told me that I have Polands Syndrome because I didn't have my left pectoral muscle although I have a breast a bit smaller than my right and that also explained my webbed left handfingers. I also have symptoms of horners syndrome on the left side of my face, drooping eye lid aand absence of sweat. Do you think the syndromes are all connected?
