I want 6000 grafts…….? Its common to hear from patients that they want maximum grafts in one sitting and some clinic has promised to do that.But how many clinics actually do even 3000 grafts in one day is questionable.Since patients pay per graft so most of the time they don’t even know how many grafts has been done.After a year of surgery they feel that its not the graft as clinic has promised.But its important that you should know that actually how many grafts has been done.
Most clinics themselves don’t count the grafts.Its always approximate.Counting of grafts need adequate microscopes and team.Clinics working with one or two staff will never count the grafts.
When extraction is done there can be grafts which are transacted and are broken.They should not be in the count you pay for.You should pay only for the healthy grafts.Implanting transacted grafts will not give any results and will be waste.Choosing a experienced doctor,latest technology and ensuring the surgeon you went for only does the entire extraction.
Do not negotiate hard.You may feel you have done good job but that can let clinics reduce the number of actual grafts.As most of the patients are unaware of the intricacies of the hair transplant its easy for the clinics to reduce cost.
Last but not the least do not believe in the numbers like 6000 or 8000 grafts in FUE in single session.No where in the world its done.A good 4000 grafts may consume 8-10 hours.So clinics finishing 6000 grafts in 4-5 hours should be doubted for.
The other way is to charge per hair and not grafts.A graft may have on average 2-2.5 hairs.So clinic telling you 6000 grafts actually means 3000 grafts or 6000 hairs.Its common in India to charge like that.Clinics like DHI and other famous clinics charge like that.
In case your surgery is already done and you want to know the number of grafts transplanted then take the picture of transplanted area and count the number of brown dots on the recipient area.Their number should be approximately equal to the number of grafts transplanted.More then 10% variation should be questioned.
At the end most of the people don’t know how actual 3000 or 4000 grafts result look like.So do good research,visit clinics,don’t get tempted by discounts and meet the doctor and ensure he does your surgery.
Above patient has undergone hair transplant single session single day 3634 Grafts.The above results are post 9 months.With alviarmani specialized instruments upto 5000 Grafts can be done in single day.Where most FUE has 20% or more Transaction rate (Graft cut or damage during extraction) Alvi Armani’s latest research in FUE and instrumentation has brought it down to near Zero.As a result more and more grafts can be extracted and implanted in single day.Most of the hair transplant clinics in India do 3000 grafts in 2 days which is not medically recommended and patients has to under go twice the trauma of anesthesia and whole procedure wasting time and money.Call us at +919818642643 or write at firstname.lastname@example.org to know more .
This proves the Alvi Armani’s commitment to provide best technologies and Best surgeons in any country. Alvi Armani philosophy of limiting itself to best surgeon in any country by careful selection process and limited surgical centers to have adequate quality control has made it Best hair transplant company in world.
In a country like India where every company is focusing on selling out franchise and trying to reduce cost by compromising on quality ,alviarmani is still maintaining the global standards as followed in any alviarmani clinic around the world.That’s the reason every transplant of alviarmani is amazing.Every surgery is done by alviarmani doctor and not the technicians.
Amit Mishra the famous leg spinner of the Indian cricket team underwent his hair transplant at Monaris hair Delhi clinic.It’s interesting to see someone able to play live cricket without a cap with a full head of hair after a hair transplant. Unlike the photos of celebrities or Bollywood stars who always wear makeup and hair fiber to hide their baldness after hair transplant Amit Mishra’s hair were actually real and free from any makeup and camouflage. He is now part of the test series and I wish him all the luck. Few of his before and after photos of real high-density hair transplant.
Which clinic Amit Mishra did His hair transplant
Amit Mishra hair transplant was done by Dr.Arihant Surana at Monaris hair clinic (previously Alviarmani) in New Delhi. Amit Mishra and top cricketers have chosen Dr.Arihant Surana due to his vast experience in FUE hair transplant and consistent results. Dr.Surana has been treating most of the top cricketers of Indian cricket team for their hair loss issues since 2008.
How successful is Amit Mishra Hair transplant
Amit Mishra hair transplant has been extremely successful. His untouched photos after 9 months of hair transplant are now available. You can see them in above images. Dr.Arihant Surana believes that every patient can get good result if the main surgeon does the surgery himself.
How times amit mishra did his transplant
Amit Mishra did his transplant twice. 1st was done at DHI when Dr.Surana was medical head of DHI hair transplant in 2010. It was few grafts in hairline. 2nd session was done at Monaris alviarmani clinic in Newdelhi in 2014 by Dr.arihant Surana.
Let me give you a surprise….THERE IS NO ROBOT FOR HAIR TRANSPLANT IN INDIA
what prompted me to write this article is when i saw a big ad in Indian news paper about ROBOTIC HAIR TRANSPLANT.I tried to find out then came to know that this is the same company which was advertising about some other technique last year.They closed the shop and came up with new name this year.Indians gets attracted by fancy names and fancy ads.where the world knows only two technique FUT and FUE Indian companies and clinic comes every month with new technique and names.With every new ad the hope raises in patients that something new has come up in the world for hair transplant.Patient are fleeced left right and center.
Lets know the truth about robotic hair transplant.
ARTAS system is one of the tool which has assisted surgeons in follicular extraction.I will call it a half robot as it can only help surgeon in extraction but rest of the procedure is dependent on surgeon skills.
There is a machine called NEOGRAFT which assists in graft extraction but its not a ROBOT.This machine was launched in India long time back as MEDIKAMET and then withdrawn.Later it came with the name of NEOGRAFT
ARTAS, NeoGraft- they are not a procedure, merely a tool used to obtain hair grafts that then need to be transplanted into the scalp properly by the surgeon and his team in order to achieve an aesthetic result.
So what are these so called Indian robots.They are motorized tools to be held in hand and which assists surgeon in graft extraction.None of these procedures can do 4000 grafts extraction in one go which experienced hands can do.
Patients should be aware of these kind of tricks.They can safeguard themselves only by doing due research before going to any clinic.Please do not fall prey of ads like UNLIMITED HAIR,ROBOTIC HAIR TRANSPLANT,some NEW TECHNOLOGY,PHOTO SHOPPED before and after photos,Cheap hair transplants etc.

Dr. Arihant Surana gets thumbs up from India!
NEW DELHI, Oct. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ – With more than 100 hair transplants within the first two years of its launch, USA’s leading hair transplant clinic Alvi Armani has become the fastest growing hair restoration clinic in India. Alvi Armani is internationally renowned for its artistic approach to the field of hair transplantation.
Launched on April 2012, at Delhi’s Chattarpur Enclave by the president of Alvi Armani, Dr Antonio Alvi Armani and the Medical Director of Alvi Armani Beverly Hills, Dr Baubac Hayatdavoudi, the ceremony was thronged by some renowned Bollywood celebrities. Dr. Antonio Armani has appointed and trained the team for the Alvi Armani New Delhi clinic, headed by Dr. Arihant Surana, as the Medical Director of Alvi Armani India. Alvi Armani introduced innovative concepts back in 1999 such as temple angle closures providing youthfulness to the face, facial framing, the use of intricate formulas that individualize the hairline for each patient and the proprietary Vitruvian methodology which has revolutionized the field of follicular unit hair transplantation.
In India, a large number of people continue to struggle everyday with hair-loss problems such as thinning hair and pattern baldness, but very few actually choose to seek professional help, primarily because of the scepticism regarding the treatment effectiveness.
With the successful completion of two years in India, Dr. Arihant Surana believes that the presence of Alvi Armani International in Indiawill wipe off all doubts regarding the quality of hair transplantations that Dr. Surana and his team delivers under the Alvi Armani brand.
“Choosing a hair transplant clinic anywhere in the world is a tough task nowadays. There are so many doctors, so many clinics giving advertisements in newspapers, and all claiming some revolutionary technique. This results in most patients being put off by the numerous hair loss treatment facilities mushrooming up every day and the quality of services these clinics offer. With the arrival of Alvi Armani clinic in India, men and women here will no longer have to travel overseas in search of world class aesthetic results in hair restoration” said Dr.arihant surana Alvi Armani India. Alvi Armani’s results are proof of the results that can be delivered by Dr. Surana and his team.
Alvi Armani’s Vitruvian method focuses on the Vitruvian Design: natural hairlines, maximum density and strategic placement. The hair loss procedure known as Vitruvian FUE hair restoration method is responsible for a new era in the world of hair transplants. The hair transplants conducted by Alvi Armani reach benchmark levels utilizing artistic brilliance, with the Vitruvian design technically advanced donor hair extraction technique “Maximus – FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction)”. Large numbers of follicular units (4000+) are delicately removed in a single daily session. Dr. Arihant Surana prefers to eliminate any major surgical instruments as this helps in shortening the healing time and minimizes pain. Dr. Armani’s proprietary scientific technology reinvents follicular unit extraction (FUE) hair transplants, achieving a new level of excellence. Their revolutionary treatment techniques have won them extremely popular with patients from across the world ranging from heads of state, Hollywood and Bollywood celebrities, politicians and professionals,
Dr. Arihant Surana seemed quite elated with the response from India. He said, “Hair Loss can turn out to be a devastating condition and only those who have experienced it can truly understand the level of anxiety and social discomfort it can cause. At Alvi Armani, our goal is to let each patient know that they are not alone and there is a solution to this problem. It feels great to see that our hair transplantation techniques are being appreciated and approached by hair loss sufferers from India. We aim to launch more clinics here soon and service all patients with hair loss.”
A recent survey has found out that a large number of customers of hair transplant services in India are in the age group of 25-30 years owing to a growing celebrity influence, increasing awareness of one’s appearance and societal pressure. This has resulted in international chains eyeing India as a large market for hair restoration. Fortunately, today’s consumers seek value and final cosmetic result over cost – the “final look” is crucial. Today the FUE technique (Follicular Unit Extraction) of transplantations is gaining momentum and becoming the industry standard.
Alvi Armani is looking for new highs in the field of hair transplantation.

This is the most common question I hear from my patients now a days. If I say 3500 grafts the next question is the clinic A has said me 2000, clinic D has said me 3000 hairs(1500 grafts) and clinic C has said me 2500.Why there is so much variation?
Let’s calculate how many grafts are required for a good density for any hair transplant. We have a normal density of 70-100 grafts per sq.cm.Looking at this we may have 50-75000 grafts (not hairs) in the entire scalp. Let’s assume that you have lost ZONE 1(first 2cm of front hair line) and ZONE 2 (next 5 cm of hair line).
To calculate the number of grafts needed you have to know the area which is empty. To calculate the hair line density for first two cms measure the area from left to right of the hair line. Usually it’s between 14-18 cms. If we take a average of 16 cms the area becomes (16×2) ie 32 sq cms. Now look at the density which you need. I recommend 50-70 grafts per sq cm for hair line including temple closure as that’s what will decide your hair transplant results. So a good dense hairline will need somewhere between 1900-2200(density neededx32) grafts.
Now look at the ZONE 2 which is another 5 cms behind it. We usually don’t need a density of 60-70 grafts per sq cm in zone 2.But even a density of35- 40 grafts per sq cms will consume 1500 -2000 grafts. So even you have hair loss in front two zones you will need somewhere between 3500-4000 grafts for good density.
Creating good density is also and an art and will vary from surgeon to surgeon.Angles at which grafts are placed, distribution of grafts; placement density will all decide the final results.
ANYTHING LESS THAN 3000 GRAFTS (5000-6000 HAIRS) WILL NOT GIVE GOOD DENSITY IN HAIR TRANSPLANT.
3000 grafts is an easy job in hands of a good surgeon. Surgeons with very low transaction rate (follicles cut at the time of extraction) can extract 3000-4000 grafts in less than 4 hours.
Inference is that if you are looking for hair transplant plan it with due research. In India there is trend for calling hair as grafts. Check for number of grafts (approx 2 hair per graft).
Never divide your procedure in two or three days. This can affect results as little swelling on scalp on next day of your procedure can change the angle of the new transplant later.Continous trauma and anesthesia is also not good for the already placed hair. Wait for at least 6 months before repeating the procedure
Hair has become an important part in a normal Indian male and female. As every Indian want to look fair similarly every Indian want to have beautiful thick hair. This shows from the way that Indian hair oil industry is a multibillion dollar industry. Medically whatever we can say but fact is that every Indian uses hair oil some or the other time in their life.
Indian hair transplant industry has also grown many folds in last 8 years. I remembered the days when ever hair transplant was talked about people only thought about salman khan and dubai.Things changed drastically over years. International companies set up chains and celebrities like sehwag, gautam gambhir and amit mishra openly showing and talking about hair transplant. I feel lucky see all that change happening. With the celebrity endorsing the hair transplant every Indian felt that this is real treatment for hair loss in between many magic treatments people were doing to grow their hair.
Suddenly hair transplant in India became a routine procedure and people started trusting Indian doctors and companies. Being a population 1.2 billion sometimes it was waiting of 3-6 months to get a hair transplant from the doctor of your choice.
From 2010 the unorganized hair transplant industry started getting more organized and divided into international, Indian companies and individual doctors for hair transplant. Hair transplant became the part of course in medical scools.By 2013 lot of new doctors started the hair transplant. With Strip getting less popular FUE became the procedure of choice for almost every Indian. This also shifted the hair transplant moving from the hands of plastic surgeons to dermatologist.
This industry is still growing at a rapid phase. Even doctors in smaller towns and cities are trying to get into hair transplant.
India still lacks the adequate infrastructure and research facilities in this field. Training is almost absent in this field. Lack of training facilities makes YOU TUBE and INTERNET the only learning facility. This brings extra advantage to international companies.Their investment in research, adequate infrastructure and continuous training makes them 5 years ahead in hair transplant industry.
Now I would say Indian hair transplant industry is in chaos. Everyday newspaper is filled with small and big ads with really funny new techniques for hair transplant. Patients are now confused what to do when it comes to hair transplant. Making decision is not easy. Every clinic claims themselves to be the best and latest technology despite of the fact that there is no other technique documented in medical literature other than FUT (strip) and FUE. World is still researching but in India you will see people advertising and claiming hair multiplication and hair cloning.
I feel the biggest mistake Indian patients make is not doing research. A fancy term used and brilliant sales person at the fancy clinics can sell anything. In my next articles I will also talk about the fancy term used to sell a hair transplant and how to safeguard yourself.
