Hi,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum,
You need to consult a good plastic surgeon for this problem. They need to perform a battery of investigations before taking up for correction.
Good Luck

I have a Clubbed Thumb, also known as Brachydactyly type D or BDD. It is only visible on my left thumb and has been there since birth . I wanted to know what I would need to do to get it looked at and what options there are to make the thumb more normal looking .... I have been looking on the net and found that surgery can correct this. My reason for this is I have been very conscious of my thumb for many years and I want rid of it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Jay

Hi Doctor, this is James aged 30 years. I have undergone Hair transplantation on 29th Aug 2013. I have baldness in the front and on the crown part. After transplantation, i started using Mintop forte as recommended by my Doctor who has done the transplantation. He gave Finax 1mg for one month.

Question is,

1. How long does it take to see the complete results of hair transplantation?

2. How long should i continue to use the Mintop Forte oil. (I am using 5% solution twice a day).

3. Any diet recommended for good hair growth.



Thanks in advance.



Best regards,

James.
