1st HT - 1000 fuht grafts in hairline.
2nd HT - 1750 FUHT grafts in crown.

He had his 1st HT of 1000 FUHT grafts transplanted to the hairline.

Leo visited our clinic 8 months after his 1st HT for his 2nd HT.
These pictures are from that time.

(Why Leo chose to go for 2 HTs when the same could have been done in a single surgery ?! - His personal choice.) He wanted to see the results in the hairline area first and then proceed to the crown area

Great write up Bigmac. I have always looked at Dr. Arvind as a great surgeon and essentially one of the only options for those suffering from hairloss in India. Although I am not necessarily sold on BHT yet, it is certainly nice to have surgeons that always strive for betterment in the profession. He is a great addition to this site.
