Medihair Review
This score evaluates the most important factors of a hair transplantation (e.g. hair line and donor) and is based on the opinion of the patient.
Clinic Location: India

Donor Management

It is important the surgeon doesn’t overharvest the area where the transplants are extracted leaving it overly thin and unnatural in appearance.
6 /10
The number of grafts is appropriate in relation to age and hair loss degree. A lower graft number will leave the patient with enough grafts for a 2nd surgery.

Hair Line Aesthetic & Design

Doctors should design an aesthetically pleasing, natural and age appropriate hairline for their patient.
7 /10
A conservative hair line was chosen. The hairline will still appear age appropriate in the future and grafts will be saved for future surgeries. The photos are sufficient for a final assessment of the hair line aesthetic and design.

Treatment & Method Appropriateness

The doctor should be able to assess the patient’s hair loss for the most suitable method, e.g. FUE or FUT.
9 /10
The FUE Method is appropriate for the hair loss degree. The FUE method is optimal for smaller graft numbers and has the advantage that no large scar is created as with the FUT method. Especially for young patient it is necessary to combine the hair transplant with suitable hair loss medication in order to achieve a lasting result and stop the hair loss of the native hair. However, in the present case the patient is not taking any hair loss medi-cation.

Density

In order to achieve a visual sufficient density usually 30+ grafts per cm² need to be transplanted.
8 /10
In the present case the patient seems to have a natural and full density. The transplanted grafts per cm² is appropriate.

Doctor Involvement

The more involved a doctor is involved in the surgery process, the better the quality and consistency a patient can expect.
8 /10
The doctor does pre- and post-consultation as well as part of the extraction. He also per-forms the opening of the recipient channels. Large parts of the graft extraction and the complete insertion of the grafts are done by technicians. This normally ensures rather consistent and reliable results.
7.7

Procedure & Hygiene

7 /10
The clinic is a modern medical facility and the surgery proceeded without complications. Furthermore the staff were always friendly and took great care of the patient.

After Care & Recovery
