Some people see it as an opportunity and some are confused that when they should do hair transplants. Most of the hair transplant clinics are closed. We are getting multiple requests to get hair transplants as patients are finding this as the best time for hair transplants. But is it the right time? Is hair transplant safe at this time? What about the Doctor and their team? Can I get Infection if I do a hair transplant? Can I travel for a hair transplant?. There is many more question which patients have before undergoing a transplant at this time.

But is it the right time to do a hair transplant?

All good hair transplant clinics in Delhi are well prepared to handle the corona pandemic. At the monaris hair clinic, we have followed all standard protocols to keep our patients safe. Regular temperature checks, twice a day clinic sanitization, Limited patients every day strictly by appointment, disinfected company vehicle for staff to travel and regular examination of staff to check any symptoms. we are also working with staff rotation with only 1/3 staff at any point in time in the clinic.

Corona pandemic is scary but we all have to live with it. So as a patient getting a hair transplant at this time is a good option due to increased safety standards by clinics.
