The Incredibles has been one of my most favorite super hero movies. It is the story of how a s super hero family is forced to live a normal & ordinary life & how the need to save the world makes them go back to being super heroes again! Mr. Incredible with his super physique and bulging biceps made him the mightiest most strongest super hero ever. Mr. Incredible has been the role model for many a children & The story of The Incredibles is indeed incredible. However, there is one thing that Mr. Incredible that makes him less of a super hero & more of a human ! Have you noticed his hairline ? Mr. Incredible suffers from a hair loss pattern that affects men around the world very commonly. It is called Male pattern Baldness! Male pattern baldness is a genetic hairloss pattern and runs in families. It has been claimed that over 50 % of males around the globe suffer from male pattern baldness to some extent. This disorder affects certain super heroes as well!
One such patient reported to our hospital to seek treatment for his hair loss. He is in his early thirties and was accompanied by his father . We noticed that the father had severe balding but did not seek treatment. Rajan however , was very concerned with his hair loss & wanted to seek treatment as soon as possible. Rajan’s receding hairline was a straight forward indicator of Androgenic Alopecia. After the initial checkup was done, we decided that Rajan was an ideal candidate for hair transplant surgery. The surgery is done in day care basis & the patient is discharged from the hospital the same day itself. The procedure takes around 6-7 hours depending upon the severity of the case & the amount of grafts required . It is a completely scar less technique as well as suture less thus rendering it safe as well. The patient is fully conscious and aware of the procedure taking place. The procedure for Rajan was completed and he was discharged the same evening . The patients resume their routine duties the very next day without any problems.
Here at Richardsons dental and craniofacial hospital, we follow a FUE technique of hair transplant and it is a Scarless, Stitchless and Safe method. It has given us good results over the years as well as high patient satisfaction.
