Mohit, a 23-year-old electrician, met with a road accident. The accident left him with a nasty cut on his lip. After being treated for the cut, Mohit was left with an ungainly scar in the moustache area.
The scar was more than a grim reminder of the accident; it gave Mohit a Ã¢â‚¬Ëœcomplex.Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ He shied away from several marriage proposals.
He approached Dr BatraÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Aesthetic Clinic for a possible solution to his moustache Ã¢â‚¬ËœdilemmaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ and regain his Ã¢â‚¬ËœlostÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ self-confidence.
The transplant surgeon, Dr Ravi Manohar, performed a technique called follicular unit transplantation (FUT), which involves the removal of small groups of hair follicles from areas having dense growth. Says Dr Manohar, Ã¢â‚¬Å“In MohitÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s case, we removed hair from the back of his scalp and implanted them on his upper lip Ã¢â‚¬â€ to create the moustache.Ã¢â‚¬Â Ã¢â‚¬Å“The surgery was performed under local anaesthesia. It took four hours for the procedure to be completed. Mohit was advised to follow a few, simple instructions to maintain the graft. He saw results emerge in the third month, post-surgery.Ã¢â‚¬Â Notes Dr Manohar, Ã¢â‚¬Å“While the initial growth of his moustache may not be as Ã¢â‚¬ËœnormalÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ as normal moustache, he will sure see drastic growth after six months to a year.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Dr Manohar, who performed the uncommon moustache Ã¢â‚¬ËœregainedÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ procedure, would be pleased to answer and expand on the following points:
