It was a great experience to opt Dr Malay Mehta's Aesthetic Clinic for many reasons. Consultation is free and detailed. Everything about the procedure and cost is well explained by assistants followed by detailed information by Dr Malay himself. No hidden charges or surplus amount is charged. The overall process is very transparent. And the best part about Dr Malay is he makes sure that the hairline is in sync with your face. Basically he tries to keep it natural. Aesthetic sense , precision and hygiene in this procedure is a crucial part and that is what probably sets him apart from all others. Coming to the actual procedure, the clinic is clean and the staff is friendly. They make sure that procedure remains painless and you're comfortable, it's a priority for them. All your doubts are cleared at any point of time so you can be stressfree.. Dr. Malay is always available for any pre/post procedure queries. Overall my experience at Dr. Mehta's clinic was great and it was a wise decision to opt this clinic for my hair transplant procedure. I am very happy with the results. It has almost been 6 months after procedure. Hairline looks good. I would definitely recommend Dr. Mehta.

Hello Everyone. Its been more than a year I had my hair transplant done from this clinic and I must say it has been one of the best decisions of my life. The results are amazing. Initially I was skeptical as I had crown balding and most of the doctors were not very positive about crown transplant but I must confess Dr Malay handled my case very efficiently and cleared most of my doubts which others could not. He gave me the confidence to go ahead with the surgery and so fars the results have been great. All the technicians are really polite and helpful and make the surgery procedure seem like a cakewalk . I will surely recommend Dr Malay for all hair related problems as he is one of the few doctors who is really passionate and has thorough understanding of his craft.

Great Dr and his team, I have had my HT done from another Dr, and the results were not good at all, After going with the procedure with Dr Malay the results are great infact he has done a correction surgery as well, Mine was a difficult case since I had weak donner area, But Dr suggested a beard transplant as well which resulted a decent outcome, (just 7 months as of now) So guys if you have had a surgery before or have a problem Donner area and especially if all hope is lost with other Dr's, then Dr Malay Mehta is the Man for you. he is young, skilled, passionate about his job and very practical,

Hi, I have visited this clinic from Melbourne to get a minor hair transplantation on my crown area. I have been talking to Mamta (admin) and Dr Malay for more an year but couldn’t travel due to the COVID restrictions. I have finally made it here and got my procedure done. The entire team is professional and been very patient throughout my journey. Team refused to take any tips. Special thanks to Dr Malay, Mamta (admin), Dr Charvi, Prathamesh, Shashank, Aditya (technicians).

Dr Metha and his staff are really amazing, initially when I went to his clinic, he sat down he with and explained to me the entire procedure and cleared any doubts that I had in my mind. After speaking with Dr Metha I decided to go ahead with the procedure, which was done very smoothly, after 8 months I am very happy with the results and also it's very comforting that Dr Metha and his staff ask me to come for follow up sessions to make sure everything is alright.

Dr Malay mehta … Boy!!! he is the best in his business. Almost after 6 months of sniffing around for best hair transplant surgeons in mumbai based on reviews, follow ups and other factors i shortlisted him.During my first visit he thoroughly examined my head and told what needs to be done and he is polite, calm and friendly and he brought me into confidence and i was good to go for the transplant procedure. Transplant day (2 days) - 1st day - 2800 graft of hair follicle 2nd day - 2000 graft of hair follicle. Procedure - FUE saffire. Procedure was as smooth as i had imagined. His team is amazing and big thanks to all of them to support during the procedure stages . Dr Malay was present through out the procedure and the OT is very well maintained with proper housekeeing and hygiene being too notch. Post procedure is had some queries and doubt and dr malay is spontaneous on replying to all your queries on whatsaap when needed. In short to sum it all —- I have had a fantastic experience with Dr Malay and team and result is pretty evident and would highly highly recommend Marvel clinic for hair transplant procedure. Cheers 🥂

What is Traction Alopecia?

Do you suffer from Traction Alopecia (also known as Tension Alopecia)? Dr Malay Mehta, one of India’s leading hair surgeons, can help treat the symptoms of this condition for those suffering from it throughout Mumbai.

Traction Alopecia is hair loss caused by repeatedly pulling your hair. This condition can also develop if you wear your hair in a tight ponytail, bun, or braids. Regular chemicals or heat use in your hair can also be a factor.

Traction Alopecia, however, can be reversed if you intervene in a timely manner. Dr Mehta can help rectify the effects of Traction Alopecia with a range of Hair Transplant Procedures, as well as Reconstruction Procedures or Hair Loss Treatments.

Common Symptoms of Traction Alopecia

Traction Alopecia may reveal its symptoms early, like little bumps on your scalp resembling pimples. As the condition progresses, missing and broken hairs along the front and sides of your scalp will appear, with alopecia hair loss on other areas of your scalp as well.

Other symptoms that may be present include:

  • Scalp redness
  • Bumps
  • Scalp soreness or stinging
  • Itching and scaling
  • Inflammation of the hair follicles
  • Pus-filled blisters

If left untreated, the hair follicles will no longer produce new hair. These symptoms differ from other forms of Alopecia as the hair loss should only be evident in the pulled areas.

Causes of Traction Alopecia

As mentioned above, Traction Alopecia is often the result of wearing your hair too tight. Repeated pulling on the hair loosens the shaft in its follicle, most commonly due to a tight ponytail, bun, braids, cornrows, or dreadlocks.

Hair extensions, weaves, or hair in rollers overnight can also be common causes. Those with very long hair may experience Traction Alopecia due to the weight pulling on the scalp. People of any age can be affected; however, the condition is more likely as we get older, as the hair becomes more damaged the longer it is pulled on.

Prevention of Traction Alopecia

It can be possible to prevent Traction Alopecia by wearing your hair down or keeping any ponytails or buns loose and low on your head. Some other tips for preventing this condition include:

  • Altering your hairstyle every few weeks
  • Avoiding rubber or elastic bands for ponytails
  • Steering clear of chemically processing your hair
  • Only wearing weaves or extensions for short periods
  • Make braids and dreadlocks thick as thinner styles pull more tightly
  • Avoid hair relaxers.
  • Use a low heat setting low on hair dryers and straighteners
  • Never sleep in rollers

Traction Alopecia Treatment and Recovery

The main treatment for Traction Alopecia regrowth is a change of hairstyle to avoid tight options like braids, cornrows, or dreadlocks. In addition, to solve the issue of bald patches that may have resulted from Traction Alopecia, Dr Mehta can offer a hair transplant performed with the highest level of technical skill.

We strongly recommend booking a consultation to determine if this or a hair reconstruction process will be best suited to your condition. Dr Mehta will assess the damage caused by Traction Alopecias to determine the best path forward for you.
