PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) therapy offers a promising alternative for natural hair growth for those who are not candidates for hair restoration surgery and for those who do not want it. The procedure is performed at Hande Medical Centre – Nungambakkam.
What is PRP ?
Human blood contains mesenchymal stem cells and autologous blood products that contain essential and specific growth factors that assist in tissue regeneration and healing. Published medical literature from Europe and the United States confirms the safety and use of PRP therapy. PRP therapy has established itself to be effective as a medical treatment modality in the specialty fields of oral surgery, neurosurgery, plastic and cosmetic surgery, sports medicine and orthopedics. It has been used extensively in these specialties for the last two decades with generally positive outcomes and success. In the field of hair restoration, existing evidence demonstrates PRP therapy as a promising treatment option to promote hair growth.
While PRP is in the early stages of scientific research in hair restoration, PRP is not meant to replace current FDA approved therapies such as DHT blockers and Minoxidil. but it is a promising non-surgical therapeutic option for those patients with hair loss.
DOES PRP WORK?
While individual results vary and no guarantees of success can be made, preliminary studies indicate many patients respond to PRP therapy. Some hair restoration physicians apply PRP to the scalp for those patients who are not surgical candidates every three (3) to four (4) months. Other protocols will use PRP before or during surgery to insure graft survivability.
PRP is an emerging non surgical based therapy for natural stimulation for thinning hair. Larger clinical studies are pending but the current medical literature contains numerous positive results. Although a few controlled studies exist, anecdotal and case reports are the primary sources reflecting success with PRP therapy.

Laparoscopic Surgery is covered by Health Insurance Schemes. Cashless facility can be availed at Hande Hospital which is part of the PPN (Preferred Provider Nettwork) of Hospitals in Chennai.However if the patient does not have Health Insurance cover, the cost will be around Rs. 60,000.
At Hande Hospital (9500060991) Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck) is performed as a cosmetic procedure (pendulous or hanging abdomen especially after repeated child births) and also along with a Ventral Hernia repair (Umbilical, Para-Umbilical, and Incisional Hernia). It can also be combined with Hysterectomy and other elective procedures and many of our patients opt for this combination of procedures after the surgeon has determined the feasibility of combining both procedures.
Stay in hospital will be for three to five days. There will be a thin scar hidden in the panty line. This settles over a period of time. Tummy tuck can be combined with liposuction especially of the hips etc.
Tummy tuck is performed usually for women, after she has completed her family.

Laparoscopic removal of the gall bladder (cholecystectomy) for gall stone disease is a well established procedure. A telescope is introduced via the umbilical port after insufflating the abdomen with carbon-dioxide. A camera is attached to the telescope and the intra-abdominal contents are visualized in a monitor. Various long instruments are introduced via other ports and the cystic duct (duct of the gall bladder) and cystic duct are isolated and cut after clipping them as shown in the video above. After making sure there is no bleeding, the ports are removed and the wounds are closed with one or two stitches.
There are distinct advantages when the gall bladder is removed laparoscopically. A long incision is avoided; stay in hospital is shorter; one can get back to normal life much faster – these are some of the advantages. However there are a few instances when one may not succeed in performing the surgery laparoscopically. In such instances your surgeon may decide to convert the surgery into a conventional open surgery. However such instances fortunately are rare.
