During the event, Dr. Anil Garg highlighted the fact that Hair Transplant is the cosmetic procedure and today every patient’s choice is an FUE Hair Transplant procedure. This demand plays a vital role in the patient’s in India as well as around the globe.
He explained that the higher grade of baldness especially in younger age group FUT and Combination plays a significant role to cover the larger area. So a Hair Transplant surgeon should be trained in both the techniques of hair transplant.
Dr. Garg was the table leader along with the Robert S.Haber on the “Hairline Design”. This is an informal session to discuss various hair restoration surgery topics in depth with the experts in a small group.
He explained in detail the Garg’s method of Hairline design where a single parameter of 8 cm helps in making the hairline design of the male pattern baldness and is especially useful for the novice hair transplant surgeon.
Dr. Robert S Haber is one of the renowned Hair Transplant Surgeon of the world and he also appreciated the simplicity of Garg’s method of the hairline design.

In the Newcomers Program, Dr. Anil Garg was one of the hosts to welcome all the newcomers. This program is designed to help our newest ISHRS meeting attendees become acquainted with the Society, its members, and the field.
As a Global council member, Dr. Anil Garg participated in the Global Council meeting and discusses the various issues related to the latest trends in the Hair Restoration Surgery.
In this event, members emphasize the awareness campaign named Black marketing in the Hair Transplant Surgery. In this practice, low price oftentimes offered for hair transplants illegally performed by technicians or untrained doctors.
It can come at a high price by placing patients at risk of misdiagnosis, failure to diagnose hair disorders and related systemic diseases, and the performance of unnecessary or ill-advised surgery. The ISHRS strongly believes that these potential risks should be avoided.
Studies and statistics show that men are now tackling the issue of baldness as early as their 20s. While some people not comfortable with cost, so they plan the hair transplant at a low cost which might be the risk of the patient’s life.
In the scientific Posters session, Dr. Garg presented the Poster on – “Combination Grafting” of Scalp and Body Hair to Enhance the Visual Density of Hair Transplant and Coverage of Higher Grade of Baldness. This poster very well explained the new concept of implanting the scalp hair and body hair with a proper combination so as to give natural visual effect. If only beard hairs are used in a particular are without mixing them with scalp hair they will give unnatural look.
For the higher grade of baldness, we need to use body hair to cover the bald area so if use Combination grafting it not only give us better coverage but also give natural look.
