Hi,
I am a 23 year old male, weighing 61 Kgs. I have male pattern baldness already at this age. My hairline has receeded, and a typical empty circle path is forming at the back of my head.
The reasons for me balding may be stress, very bad diet, skipping meals, smoking (i am taking measures to quit). I've undergone several treatments mostly dietry, to help gain hair but with not much progress. I have now boiled down to hair transplant. I thought it would be wise to get an independant view on this, as each doctor I've been to are trying to lure me into doing the treatment at their clinic. As I guess there is a lot of money involved, the doctors here are more concerned about how much they will earn rather than the patient's health. So HealthCare Magic, can you please suggest a good clinic/hospital to do my hair transplant (anywhere in India, preferably in the south), as I understand hair transplant is most effective and best when done by a good and experienced surgeon? Does it hurt? How long does it take to heal (the time when no one will ever know that I had a hair transplant done)?
Please respond at your earliest convenience.
Thanks,
