Dr. Raghu Reddy has over 15 years of experience and performs follicular unit extraction (FUE) hair transplant surgery as the primary part of his practice at Restore Hair Clinic in London, England. He specializes in shaven and non-shaven FUE, body hair transplantation (BHT), general repair, scar repair and eyebrow reconstruction. He also offers ACell and PRP treatments, prescriptions for Propecia and provides free in-depth consultations at his clinic.
Dr. Reddy has the staff and experience to perform up to 1500 grafts per day and dense pack up to 35-40 follicular units per square centimeter (FU/cm2) when appropriate for the patient. He and his team of 3 experienced technicians operate on only 1 or 2 patients per day.
Dr. Raghu Reddy's interest in hair restoration dates back to his medical school days where he personally battled baldness. Thus, after obtaining his qualifications and surgical training in West of Scotland, Deanery, he pursued further training in surgical hair restoration. Dr. Reddy is a patient first which has made him very passionate about his work and empathetic towards his patients.
Dr. Reddy asserts that it takes years of experience to master FUE and considers himself very conservative. He uses cutting edge techniques and puts the needs of his patients above the desire to offer and produce larger sessions. When done right, Dr. Reddy feels that FUE can minimize the overall discomfort for patients and provide fantastic outcomes on par with the strip harvesting technique.
Dr. Reddy admits that FUE in inexperienced hands can have serious consequences, resulting in poor growth, excessive scarring and the depletion of valuable donor hair. Thus, he believes that it's critical to undergo FUE hair transplant surgery with a skilled and experienced surgeon.
Dr. Raghu is very systematic and hands-on during the entire procedure. Dr. Reddy uses the standard Versi handle and manual punches ranging between .8mm and 1.0mm depending on the size of the follicular unit. He also applies ACell to the donor area in order to aid the healing process and minimize the appearance of scarring.
In Dr. Raghu Reddy's experience, manual follicular unit extraction allows an experienced surgeon to follow the natural emergent angles and aids both depth control and extraction of the follicles while minimizing transection and undue trauma. Dr. Reddy feels that it becomes more difficult to extract quality grafts and that this ability is lost with motorized FUE. Dr. Reddy acknowledges that manual extraction can be extra tedious and time consuming and thus, a significant amount of concentration is required to produce quality grafts with manual devices.
