Why women are dying of hair loss due to hair transplants
The latest news in hair, beauty and cosmetic surgery.
Hair loss treatment is a big business in India, and now more than ever, doctors are turning to it to save lives.
The Indian government says it is saving about 15,000 lives annually, and there are about 6,000 hair transplant centres across the country.
In fact, it has become a major industry, as the number of hair transplanted in India increased by 50 per cent between 2008 and 2016.
India is the world’s third largest hair transplant centre, after China and the US.
There are now over 6,500 hair transplant centres operating in India.
India is home to about 10,000 transplant centres, according to the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, which has been operating them since 1992.
In 2016, the Indian Medical Council (IMC) estimated that there were about 3,700 transplant centres in the country, and that a total of 8,000 patients are receiving transplants each year.
The transplants are typically done in the UK, Canada, Australia and the United States.
India has had a history of having a very high number of cases of hair transplantation, said Dr Rajesh Sharma, a dermatologist and president of the Association of Indian Dermatologists and the Society of Cosmetic Dermatology.
The most common reason for hair loss in India is infection.
In fact, over 30 per cent of patients with hair loss will have an infection, Sharma said.
But it is also a risk factor for infections like cataract, rickets and diabetes.
The main thing doctors are looking for is that the patient’s body temperature remains stable and there is no other significant external signs of infection like hair loss.
Patients with hair transplant diseases can expect to have their body temperature rise between 15 and 20 degrees Celsius over a period of a few days, depending on their disease.
But in the majority of cases, the body temperature will drop below 15 degrees, Sharma added.
The average hair transplant patient has a median age of 27 years, with a median annual income of $30,000, according the Indian Statistical Institute (ISI).
There are also a lot of factors that contribute to the rate of hair disease, Sharma explained.
India has a very low prevalence of HIV/AIDS, so most patients are not getting treated.
There is a high incidence of skin cancer in the population, so the immune system is not working very well.
The majority of patients have other chronic illnesses like diabetes, asthma, kidney disease, hypertension, COPD, osteoarthritis and other conditions that also cause hair loss, Sharma noted.
“It is not just the patients who suffer.
The general population also suffers because of the infection,” Sharma said, adding that the Indian government needs to invest in better hygiene.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), India has the highest number of HIV infections among all countries, with the highest rate of new infections and deaths in sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia and Eastern Europe.
Since the last major outbreak of HIV in India in 2016, it is expected that the number will increase by 20 per cent over the next two years, according a report by the Indian Institute of Medical Sciences.
India currently has more than one million new infections each year, according TOI, and India’s overall HIV/Aids rate is estimated to be around 40 per cent.
The new hair transplant treatment in India needs to be carried out with care.
There needs to a high level of supervision.
There should be a medical director and an experienced team, said Sharma.
If a patient suffers from an infection like cataravels or rickets, they need to be isolated for the entire procedure.
The skin should be clean and the patient should have a clean scalp and clean face.
A sterile mask is needed, he added.
Sharma said that the main issue is that there is a lot that can go wrong during the procedure.
He explained that when the patient starts to feel the effects of the surgery, it can take a few minutes before the infection has completely gone away.
It is very important that they have a good hygienic environment, he said.
India’s medical director is responsible for making sure that all the patients get the best possible care.
Sharma said that a lot has changed over the years, but that it was still not enough to make people comfortable with having a transplant.
For patients who have a hair loss disorder, the hair transplant is a simple procedure that is not expensive.
The patient must have a diagnosis of a hair transplant and be able to provide the money for the procedure, Sharma told TOI.
However, in the future, the surgery should be done with more advanced equipment and procedures, Sharma suggested.
He added that patients with certain hair loss disorders should have more extensive treatment before the procedure and that they should also get a dermatology specialist to make sure that their hair
