About Dr. Sajal Halder

Dr. Sajal Halder hair transplant clinic offers FUE hair transplant, body hair transplant, scalp micro-pigmentation, Neograft technology as well as ARTAS robotic procedures among others.

Besides hair transplantation, Dr. Halder's clinic also offers other cosmetic procedures including liposuction, body contouring, breast augmentation, breast reduction and rhinoplasty to name a few. Of course, our focus here is about hair restoration and treatment for baldness and thinning hair.

As with all medical treatments, there is no guarantee what kind of results you may get, and that applies to hair transplantation too. The general rule of thumb is to choose a doctor who has been able to produce numerous patient results over an extended period of time. Also, be realistic with your expectations. Even the absolute best doctor in the world cannot bring your teenage hair density back. Hair transplant is about giving the illusion of density and coverage and creating a cosmetically acceptable appearance. It is not a cure that will bring all your hair back. But with the right artistic skills, cutting edge technology and under the hands of a skilled surgeon, hair transplant can offer a very effective permanent solution and help restore one's confidence.

If you are starting to lose your hair and considering hair transplant as an option, Dr. Sajal Halder has a very creative interactive hair transplant graft estimator that can instantly give you a rough approximation of how many grafts you may need. This is the first of its kind ever featured on HairSite. Anyone with internet access can use this interactive estimator with immediate feedback.

FUE Follicular Unit Extraction Hair Transplant

Both manual and robotic FUE procedures are available at Dr. Halder's clinic.

When performed under the hands of a skilled surgeon, hair transplant surgery is one of the few hair restoration options that works really well. It can be a very effective treatment for some individuals and the results can sometimes rival what nature has given us.

The evolution of hair transplant has come a long way over the years. In the older days, people associate hair transplant with unsightly plugs or visible scars. Nowadays, hair transplant results have improved dramatically with the advance of new technologies and a new generation of highly trained competent physicians.

Another preconceived notion about hair transplant is that it is a very involved medical procedure that causes a tremendous amount of trauma to the patient, massive wounds, stitches, pain and extended healing time. While this may still be true depending on the technique the doctor uses and the skills of the doctor, this is no longer the only way experience that every patient is subject to when it comes to hair transplantation.

With the new and highly acclaimed FUE technique, hair transplantation experience can be a lot less traumatic and a lot more patient friendly than it used to.

FUE stands for Follicular Unit Extraction. It is vastly different from traditional strip technique in hair transplantation. Under strip technique, a large strip of skin is removed from the back of the patient's head during the donor follicles extraction process. The back of the patient's head is then sutured together which often results in a linear scar going across the back of the patient's head.  It is a very involved and traumatic process for the patient, healing time can last as long as 2-3 months or even longer before the patient can resume 100% of his normal day to day routines post op.

With FUE, the patient no longer has to go through the unpleasant experience associated with strip technique. FUE is commonly referred to as the patient friendly minimally invasive technique in hair transplantation. Instead of removing a large strip of skin from the patient's scalp during the donor extraction process, each donor follicle is meticulously extracted, micro-surgically, one at a time directly from the patient's scalp without having to inflict much damage or harm to the patient's scalp. There is no large visible linear scar after the procedure and healing time is many times faster than traditional strip technique.

Facial Hair Restoration

Hair transplant is no longer reserved for restoring scalp hair. Nowadays hair transplant can be used to treat a variety of hair related conditions and disorders, facial hair transplant is one of them.

In the hair restoration community, facial hair transplant is a procedure commonly used to restore goatee and mustache for patients as well as to facial areas such as cheek, beards and sideburns. Sometimes the patients lost these facial hair due to accidents or injuries while other times the patients were simply born with little or no facial hair such as moustache to begin with and they desire the option to be able to grow facial hair. 

While pharmaceutical companies have invented medication such as topical Minoxidil (brand name Rogaine) and  Finasteride pills (brand name Propecia) and approved by the US FDA as proven hair regrowth and anti hair loss treatments, it is unclear whether these medications can have the same effect on facial hair growth or not. The reason is that especially for the case of Finasteride which is a DHT inhibitor (via inhibiting type II alpha reductase), many in the hair loss community suggest that the effect of DHT actually functions the opposite way when it comes to scalp hair vs body or facial hair.  So it may be possible that Finasteride hair growth pills may have no effect or even the opposite effect for facial or body hair growth. Minoxidil on the other hand may have a benefit for facial hair growth, but clinical studies related to minoxidil and facial hair growth are limited. There are, however, anecdotal evidence that some women reported facial hair growth while using topical minoxidil on the scalp.

In the absence of a viable growth stimulant for facial hair, hair transplantation becomes the only effective solution for someone desiring more facial hair such as moustache, sideburns, goatee etc.

Similar to conventional hair transplant procedures for scalp hair loss, the number of grafts required in a facial hair transplant largely depends on the goals and expectations of the patient and the available of donor follicles. In any given session, the number of grafts involved can vary from a few hundred to even thousands. For example, for moustache restoration, typically about 350 to 600 grafts is need, full goatee normally requires 600 to 800 grafts, sideburns 300 to 400 grafts per side, beard reconstruction 600 to 1000 grafts per side. If the patient desires more density, sometimes a second session may be required.

In facial hair transplantation, the donor hair comes from the scalp. So it is essential that the patient has a good supply of scalp donor hair when consider facial hair transplant. If the patient is already suffering from scalp hair loss, then it may be a challenge looking for donor hair for his facial hair procedure.

When done by an experienced surgeon, scarring is usually not a problem in facial hair transplantation. Over the years we have seen very few incidences of visible scarring due to facial hair transplants.

Once transplanted the hair are permanent. To provide a natural appearance the hair are transplanted as one and sometimes two hair grafts depending on how the facial hair grow. Other important factors include angulation and direction of the transplanted grafts, needless to say the transplanted grafts have to be in perfect alignment with the natural facial hair characteristics of the patient otherwise it will not look natural.

Equally important is the use of all microscopically dissected grafts that can be placed in the smallest possible recipient sites so as to minimizes scarring and even the aesthetic of any existing gray hairs into the restored area.


The procedure is usually performed under local anesthesia with an oral sedative depending on patient choice. It last 2 to 5 hours, for the first 5 days after the procedure tiny crusts are formed around each transplanted hair and the transplanted area must be kept absolutely dry. In most cases, the patient can resume most of his daily routines by the 5th day post surgery.  The transplanted hairs will usually shed in about 2-4 weeks. After then the grafts will go through a dormant cycle and in about 3 months they will start to grow.

Eyebrow & Eyelash Transplants

eyebrow transplant india

When most people talk about hair restoration or hair transplant, the immediate reaction is to associate it with scalp hair loss such as thinning hair, baldness or various forms of alopecia.

In reality, hair disorders can manifest in different forms and shapes. While scalp hair loss is the most common of all, the medical community is catching on with other forms of disorder or condition that is fast gaining mainstream recognition.

Eyebrow and eyelash loss is one such disorder that is now being acknowledged by many sufferers as well as the hair transplant community.

Until recently, there is very little people with eyebrow or eyelash loss can do other than to suffer quietly. One should not underestimate the effect of eyebrow or eyelash loss has on individuals. To the person experiencing the disorder, it can be just as devastating as scalp hair loss or baldness.

What is so frustrating about eyebrow and eyelash loss is that this medical condition is not widely studied by doctors or researchers. Most of the studies in the world about hair loss focus on alopecia or scalp baldness. There is extremely limited funding for eyebrow and eyelash loss studies; one reason is because this type of condition is not talked about as often as the typical baldness and when it does get publicized often, people think that this is not a common phenomenon. Many who experience this condition simply suffer in quiet thinking that they are the only one who has this disorder.

The typical scapegoat that is being blamed for causing eyebrow or eyelash loss is excessive plucking. People use this reason as an easy excuse. As a matter of fact, it is not clear why we are losing our eyebrow or eyelash. Unlike androgenetic alopecia that is commonly attributed to the male hormone DHT, few has actually performed a thorough study to investigate why a person is losing eyebrow or eyelash.

Contrary to popular belief, eyebrow and eyelash loss do not happen to women only. There are just as many men who suffer from this disorder.

As for treatment, in the past the only solution is for women to wear fake eyelashes and use makeup to camouflage the eyebrow loss. In some instances, tattoos maybe done for the eyebrows. None of this is an ideal solution as they are all temporary in nature. In the end, we all desire to have our own natural growing eyebrow or eyelash back.

However, all this has changed dramatically with the invention of FUE technique in hair transplantation. FUE stands for follicular unit extraction. While this revolutionary technique was first invented as a treatment for scalp hair loss, doctors later discover that the technique is also equally effective in restoring eyebrow and eyelash loss when performed correctly.

This is fantastic news for men and women who suffer from eyebrow and eyelash loss because now there is an effective treatment that can restore natural growing eyebrows and eyelash for them. Best of all, FUE treatment is a very minor surgical procedure, down time is minimally and there is a minimal of discomfort or pain when compared to traditional hair transplant procedures for scalp hair loss. The process involves extracting donor follicles from the patient's leg, neck or nape areas and then transplant them to thinning areas in the eyebrow or eyelash. Very often, the process only takes a few hours to complete and the patient can return home soon after.

Depending on the extent of eyebrow or eyelash loss, very often a small session of a few hundred grafts is all that need to restore both eyes for the patient.

PRP Platelet Rich Plasma Hair Therapy

Platelet rich plasma is a non invasive hair restoration treatment using the patient's own blood as growth factors. The following information is provided by Dr. Sajal Halder's clinic.

Essential factors in Platelet Rich Plasma:

  • Glycogen
  • Lysosomes
  • Alpha granules.
  • These granules within the PRP contain clotting and growth factors that are eventually released during healing and repair process.

Factors helpful in hair growth includes:

  • Platelet Derived Growth Factor (PDGF)
  • Transforming Growth Factor beta (TGF-b)
  • Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF)
  • Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF)
  • Fibroblast Growth Factor-2 (FGF-2)
  • Insulin like Growth factor (IGF)

The Treatment:

  • The blood sample is withdrawn from the patient's arm by syringe.
  • The tubes containing withdrawn blood are placed in a centrifuge and spun for a period of time
  • The blood is specially prepared by spinning down the blood cells to a high concentration.
  • After centrifugation, the red and white and platelets settles down at various levels in the tube.
  • Blood plasma that is rich in platelets is drawn off from the appropriate level.
  • Plasma defined as platelet-rich plasma contains 4 to 8 times the number of platelets per cubic centimetre found in normal plasma. With additional preparation the PRP is ready for application.
  • Under a tropical anaesthesia, the PRP is injected into the scalp at the sub dermal level.

Treatment Frequency for Plasma Rich Plasma:

3-4 sessions (each session with a gap of 6-8weeks) is given at the time of presentation and it needs to be repeated every year to keep the progress going.

What is Platelet Rich Plasma used for?

  • To preserve and enhance hair follicle viability during and after hair transplantation
  • To promote and enhance tissue repair and healing after hair transplantation.
  • PRP seems to work better in patients with diffuse hair thinning caused by any causes including alopecia androgenetica.
  • It is hypothesized that platelet growth factors can "wake up" dormant hair follicles and begin the production of new hair.
  • It is found to be effective in alopecia Areata.
  • It is not that much effective in patients with complete baldness and scarring alopecia.
  • It can be used in conjunction with Minoxidil, Finasteride & hair restoration surgery.

Safety, Complications, Contraindication:

PRP is immunologically neutral and poses no danger of allergic, hypersensitivity or foreign body reactions. Sterile technique must be used at every stage of PRP preparation and application. A brief period of inflammation at the injected site may be experienced after PRP application.

NeoGraft Robotic Hair Transplant

Almost every aspect of our lives have gone computerized and digital nowadays, hair transplantation is no exception.

Dr. Sajal Halder is one of the first in India to embrace robotic hair transplantation. If you have heard about robotic hair transplants such as NeoGraft and ARATAS, you can discuss with Dr. Halder and see if you are a good candidate for the treatment.

Hair transplant is an extremely labor intensive medical procedure, as a result there are compelling reasons to develop a robotic device that can handle the most tedious and repetitive nature of the procedure. Because of the vast number of follicles that are involved in each hair transplant session, usually in the thousands in a single day, fatigue is a commonly cited problem with the doctor performing FUE hair transplant procedure. This of course will not serve the best interest of the patient if the doctors or technicians get tired easily due to the sheer volume of follicles involved in each session. This gives rise to the invention of NeoGraft.

Neograft is a robotic device that can reduce the amount of human errors in FUE hair transplantation. According to some doctors, this device requires less time to perform FUE and with less transection rate. In addition, NeoGraft uses pneumatic pressure to extract the follicles and implant them as well. As the follicle shaft is not held with forceps it is also called "No Touch" FUE hair transplant. This eliminates the need for handling the grafts with forceps which can damage these precious donor follicles. In many instances, the cost of robotic NeoGraft FUE procedure is comparable to conventional FUE that is performed manually.

At Dr. Halder's clinic in Delhi, India, they are routinely doing more than 1000 grafts in less than 3hrs with FUE technique. The procedure can be repeated multiple times. According to Dr. Halder, there are few more modifications to the technique vis-a-vis direct hair transplant which reduces the out of the body time for graft drastically. As the graft is immediately implanted following harvest, the ischemia time for graft is almost zero. The result has improved drastically and immediate hair fall following transplant is also reduced significantly.

Dr. Halder and his team can explain more thoroughly the benefits of NeoGraft and whether it is suitable for your needs.
