Why Choose India for Hair Transplants?

The rising healthcare costs in the U.S have forced several patients in the country to seek help from international destinations like India where cheap medical services are available. The case is true especially for orthopedic surgeries, cardiac surgeries, and cosmetic procedures like hair transplants. Within a few years since the trend started, India gained the status as a hot destination for medical tourism. The country has been the favorite choice for many opting for affordable hair restoration surgeries, which include the most advanced follicular unit extraction (FUE).

For patients opting for hair transplant in India, the country offers several benefits in terms of quality of service and affordability. Let’s have a quick glance of the advantages of getting hair transplant done in India.

Cost effective: Like every other healthcare service, hair transplant procedure costs significantly less in India when compared to Europe and America. Hair transplant industry experts argue that hair transplant services in India costs only 25 percent of that in the U.S. While in most part of the U.S. a single follicular hair transplant costs between 3 to 8 U.S. dollars, in India you may get the same for about 1 to 1.5 dollars.

English Proficiency: Indians are well versed in English. Any foreigner from an English speaking country will feel at home in India as they don’t face the language barrier, especially while interacting with medical professionals. Ensuring proper communication between patient and doctor is vital in every medical procedure, including the cosmetic procedures like hair transplant. Before starting the procedure, the hair surgeon briefs the patient about the procedure so that he/she becomes fully aware of its consequences. This communication helps build a rapport between the patient and doctor bringing better results.

Qualified Professionals: Medical professionals in India are well qualified to serve different types of clients, including native and foreign. Many of the well-known hospitals and hair transplant centers in India have hair surgeons educated in foreign universities, so they are better equipped to deal with foreign patients. Hair surgeons educated from local universities too demonstrate high levels of standard because Indian academic system is hailed as one of the best in the world.

Technology: Hair transplant procedures like FUT (strip method) and FUE (follicular method) are instrument-dependent procedures. These surgeries can be performed only with the help of advanced equipment that consists of microscopic lenses and sophisticated needles. Hair transplant centers in India, especially those located in crowded cities like Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore and Hyderabad are equipped with the most advanced hair transplant equipments in the industry.

Alternative Medicines: India is known worldwide for the power of Ayurveda, yoga and naturopathy. Several traditional treatments are available to treat alopecia. These products include

Ayurvedic massage, oils, herbal shampoos, and internal supplements. While getting the hair transplant done you may also seek the advice of these local naturopaths to improve the health of your future hair.

Tourism: Last but not the least, India opens the door to a world of natural and historical wonders. Visiting India for a hair transplant gives you an opportunity to touch the land of the great Mogul Emperors and the famous Taj Mahal. It’s an opportunity to unfold the wonderful geography, biodiversity, people, culture, language and ethnicity of India. Don’t miss it.
