Hair Transplant in India

India is emerging as popular destination for medical tourism, especially for costlier cosmetic treatments like hair transplant, liposuction, botox and more. India, one of the largest countries in terms of population, is also blessed with a diverse pool of medical professionals, who have earned their degree from reputed universities in the world. India attracts several customers from the West. The most important attraction about Indian healthcare services is that it is highly affordable.

What Drives the Hair Transplant market in India?

According to Wikipedia resources, India's medical tourism sector is expected to experience an annual growth rate of 30 percent, making it a $1.9 billion industry by 2015. This growth is indirectly attributed to the rising healthcare costs in Western countries, especially the United States. The cost of hair transplant in India is only about 25 percent of that done in the United States. For example, the average cost of FUT (strip) in a good center in India is $1 approx  per follicle. The standard cost of FUE in India at a world class center would be $1.5 approx per follicle, according to Dr. Tejinder Bhatti, Senior Cousultant Plastic & Aesthetic Surgery. The same procedure may cost at $4 to $9 per graft in Europe or America.

What to Expect in Hair Transplant Services in India?

Despite the fact that hair transplant surgeries in India are available at a rate much higher than the western counterparts, you will get world-class services supported by the most advanced technologies and the services of dedicated hair transplant surgeons. Since this is a highly specialized cosmetic procedure catering to a minute segment of the society, hair restoration and transplant services are mostly located in popular metropolitan cities like New Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore and Hyderabad. Due to the high costs involved in the procedure, hair transplant in India is restricted to the upper class living in urban communities. However, over the past few years, the popularity of hair transplant procedures has risen, mainly due to the awareness created by celebrities and different communications channels on the success of these procedures.

Hair transplant in India is a viable option for people from English-speaking countries. Indian hospitals located in the metropolitan cities are well equipped to serve their foreign clients. The staff, from the upper management to the lower-class attendants, is able to communicate in English, so that their patients do not face issues in communicating with the hospital staff. To ensure competent service, they have adopted advanced surgical procedures like Follicular Unit Extraction that has gained wide acceptance in western countries.

Usually the hair transplant in India is performed as a day care procedure, and the patient will be discharged on the same day, meaning you save huge amount on hospital stay and related expenses. Hair transplant is typically carried out under general anesthesia with mild sedation. The treatment may also involve prescription drugs that should be taken after the hair transplant procedure to stimulate the growth of healthy hair follicles.

Most of the hair transplant centers in India are specialized for androgenic alopecia. However, there are hair loss/hair transplant treatments available for women who suffer from permanent hair loss induced by hormonal factors or certain disease conditions. India, known for the rich Ayurvedic heritage, also offers natural hair loss treatments at affordable price. Ayurvedic treatments can also augment the post-operative care of hair transplant patients and promote the growth of healthy follicles.
