Scalp Reduction Surgery in India

International patients are coming to India for scalp reduction surgery at an affordable price with best medical healthcare facilities. Scalp reduction is a type of hair replacement surgery that involves the removal of a bald section of the scalp. The remaining portions of the scalp are then carefully drawn together like a curtain and sutured to close the incision. Surgeons of cosmetic surgery provides you the best facilities available for this surgery. Scalp reduction is often combined with micrografting techniques to conceal any scarring and fill in any additional balding or thinning areas. Only patients with very loose skin in their balding area should be considered for this procedure. If any patient wants to come to India for scalp reduction surgery at cities like Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore,Hyderabad and Goa, then it is the best option at the best prices.

Scalp reduction surgery can be used to remove balding areas of skin and reduce the total area of the scalp that needs hair replacement. This procedure can only be done on those with loose scalps. If this skin is already tight, then it won't be possible to stretch it over the bald areas without the use of a tissue expander, such as in scalp expansion. Unlike scalp expansion, which requires two surgeries, or scalp flap surgery, which requires three surgeries, scalp reduction surgery occurs in one step. Up to 2 inches of balding skin is removed, and an adjacent area of hair-bearing scalp is stretched over it and sutured into place. This surgery is only effective in covering small areas of balding scalp since the scalp cannot typically stretch very much. For this reason, scalp reduction surgery is often used in conjunction with another method of hair restoration such as hair transplant surgery, but it will reduce the number of hair grafts that are ultimately required since there will be less skin that needs hair. After scalp reduction surgery, patient will have prescriptions for antibiotics to prevent infection and pain pills to control discomfort. Many patients do fine with acetaminophen after surgery and do not require stronger medication. After surgery, patient will wear a bandage overnight. To protect the flap, minimize swelling, and absorb drainage. It is normal to see a few drops of blood on the gauze. If patient notice more than a few drops, or if the area of blood is increasing, call the doctor right away. The dressing may be removed in one or two days, and sutures come out after 7 to 10 days.

Medical tourism is a term that has risen from the rapid growth of international healthcare where people from all around the world are traveling to India to obtain cosmetic procedures like scalp reduction surgery, and other surgeries at a fraction of the cost of healthcare in the USA, Canada or UK. At the same time as receiving surgery abroad, patients can experience the excitement and adventure of the cultural attractions their destination country offers. There are many reasons for the increased popularity of medical travel services: exorbitant healthcare costs in industrialized nations, long waiting lists for surgery in countries offering socialized healthcare, ease and affordability of international travel, favorable currency exchange rates in foreign countries resulting in low cost surgery rapidly improving technology and standards of care in many countries, proven safety of healthcare in select foreign nations, international accreditation of foreign hospitals, U.S., U.K. and Australian board certified surgeons operating in select foreign countries.
