An Overview Of The Case

Mr. Ramulu visited Redefine for a hair transplant in Hyderabad. He was concerned about baldness caused by excessive hair loss. After diagnosis, Dr. Harikiran Chekuri, among the leading hair transplant surgeons in Hyderabad,concluded the condition to be Male Pattern Baldness.

We ensured that Mr. Ramulu gets the best treatment at an affordable hair transplant cost in Hyderabad. So, Dr. Harikiran Chekuri informed him about the FUE hair transplant technique and its advantages. After understanding the treatment and its cost, Mr. Ramulu agreed to go for the FUE hair transplant surgery.

Mr. Ramulu had thinning on the top and crown area, which was covered with gap filling. Dr. Harikiran Chekuri and his team of specialists completely reconstructed his hairline with a high density of hair.

FUE hair transplant surgery



The eminent surgeon, Dr. Harikiran Chekuri, administered local anesthesia at the operational site to ensure the procedure was as painless as possible.

He then shaved the hair in the transplant location as well as the donor area from where healthy hair follicles were to be extracted.

After this, he extracted individual hair grafts from the donor region using a 0.6 – 0.9 mm micro punch tool.

A technician sorted through the extracted grafts to ensure that only the healthy and viable grafts were used for the transplant.

Dr. Harikiran Chekuri sketched out the recipient site based on the patient’s wishes and the donor region’s constraints. He made minute slits for the hair grafts depending on their length.

The surgeon specified the angle from which the hair originates, its density, and its direction to achieve the most satisfactory cosmetic results.

He then implanted the retrieved viable follicles into a series of tiny incisions using precision tools like implanters or forceps.

Finally, he cleaned and bandaged the area to start its recovery process.


Post-treatment guidelines

Dr. Harikiran Chekuri informed Mr. Ramulu that he might experience swelling or discomfort for about 3 days. Following are the post-operative instructions given:

  • For at least 3 days, donot wash your hair or shower.
  • After you start shampooing your hair, use soft, unscented shampoos for a few weeks.
  • Take a few days off from work to aid in your recovery.
  • For at least 3 weeks, avoid combing or brushing your new hair. The hair needs to be friction-free.
  • For at least 1 week, refrain from engaging in any vigorous physical exercise.

He also informed Mr. Ramulu that he might lose some hair during the healing process as it is a common occurrence and to expect noticeable changes after 3 – 4 months of the procedure.


Post-Operative Assessment

When Mr. Ramulu visited us after 3 months for a follow-up, his scalp had started showing positive signs of hair regrowth. The balding patch had started filling in with a very natural look.


Patient Feedback

Mr. Ramulu looked extremely happy when he met Dr. Harikiran Chekuri during his follow-up. He said he had always been an outgoing person, and people loved being around him as they used to love his sense of humor and cheerful nature.

But after he started losing his hair, he began to feel that his friends were now not laughing with him but teasing him and laughing at him.

He says, “I knew deep within that they were not really being spiteful to me, but I kept losing my confidence and became more of a recluse. I avoided socializing after that. Then I heard about the expertise of Dr. Harikiran Chekuri, and after having met him, I felt hopeful. And now, seeing the positive outcome of the hair treatment, I feel more and more confident.”

“Thank you, Dr. Chekuri, for helping me regain my confidence and zest for life.”
