Hair implants is a surgical procedure that can add hair back on the scalp and on the forehead. It’s performed by taking hair from thicker sections of the scalp, or from other parts of the body, and this application of hair is called “grafting.” But can you get hair implants on your forehead? Let’s find out:
Grafting is done in thinning or balding areas of the scalp. These days, hair implants is gaining popularity and many people are using hair transplant to regain their youth and self confidence. We can see many famous Bollywood stars who have used hair transplant to conceal baldness and hair thinning. The good news is, even women can make the most of this procedure and enjoy voluminous and thick hair. Today, we’re going to learn if hair implants can be performed on forehead.
1. Women can also get hair implants: Often people associate hair implants with men, but the game is changing these days. There is a rise in women undergoing this procedure by 27% according to sources. Women who have thinner hair around the forehead can also opt for this surgical treatment. According to client reviews, the results are so natural that it’s hardly noticeable. 2. There are two methods of hair implants: There are two ways of hair transplant, strip harvesting or follicular unit extraction (FUE). In strip harvesting, the skin strips with healthy hair growth are placed on balding areas. It is also the most preferred type of implants and leaves a tiny scar behind. the best part this procedure promises recovery within two weeks. Follicular unit extraction or FUE can be done in one or several sittings. It is a manual process and is time consuming, but it claims to provide natural results and promises no scars. In this method, hair clusters are manually removed along with their roots and are planted at the hairless area. This is a costly procedure compared to strip harvesting and consumes more time.
Can you Get Hair Implants on your Forehead?
Yes, you can get implants on forehead. Mostly women thin out from forehead area and many desire for fuller hair and better hair-line. You can even draw the hairline according to your wish and ask your doctor’s suggestion. Surprisingly, hair implants can be done on eyebrows too!
Cost of Hair Implants:
Since it is a cosmetic surgery, it will cost you quite a lot. The place and region also determines the cost of the procedure. In India, it may generally cost from 40,000-200,000 INR exclusive of the medications after the procedure. As it is a big step, we suggest visiting a reputed dermatologist to avoid any issues later or side effects later. The procedure can roughy take 6-8 hours. It is very important to get a family member/friend along to drop you home safely. The procedure is performed under local anaesthesia. You may not notice any results initially as it takes 6-8 months for the hair to grow to that length.
Hope this article clears your mind regarding hair implants, we wish you beautiful hair. Thanks for reading!
Jackson Schultheis was born with the progressive muscle disease spinal muscular atrophy.
Welcome to Dispensed, Business Insider’s weekly newsletter bringing you all the stories that kept our healthcare team busy this week.
While Erin Brodwin’s been out celebrating her wedding, the rest of us have been staying busy holding down the fort! Congrats, Erin!!
Are you new to our newsletter? You can sign up for Dispensed here.
First up: Some really important reporting from Emma Court, who spoke with families who are having a hard time getting access to Zolgensma, the $2.1 million treatment for spinal muscular atrophy that was approved in May.
‘Like we were being forced to gamble with our son’s life’: Health insurers won’t pay for a $2.1 million drug for kids, and parents say they’re running out of time
A new type of therapy that treats a devastating inherited disease at the genetic level was recently approved in the US. Its $2.1 million price tag makes the drug, Zolgensma, the most expensive in the world.
Four parents of children born with the disease, called spinal muscular atrophy, told Business Insider they have been fighting health insurers like Aetna and Anthem to get access to Zolgensma. One decision, by UnitedHealth, has since been reversed.
Sarah Stanger, whose son lives with spinal muscular atrophy, called it “heartbreaking, because this one person is everything to us. And they’re acting like his life doesn’t really matter.”
These kinds of barriers could create “further inequities in the healthcare system for people with genetic diseases and disabling conditions,” Stanford ethicist Holly Tabor said.
Emma’s reporting highlights an important tension that’s playing out right now – between health plans who are setting up policies that constrain who might be considered for treatment and drug companies that set the $2.1 million price tag – that leave patients and their families caught in the middle. One of the plans in question that came up in Emma’s reporting said it doesn’t cover any gene therapies.
As more and more gene therapies get to approval, tensions are only going to get higher.
A wave of digital health IPOs
Livongo executives Glen Tullman, Zane Burke, and Jennifer Schneider on the day of the company’s IPO.
Thursday was a big day for digital health companies.
Diabetes tech company Livongo started trading, closing up 36% after pricing Wednesday at $28. Health Catalyst, which helps hospitals sift through their data, also closed out the day 51% higher than its $26 a share price set the night before.
We were tracking the IPOs closely.
Elsewhere, Bright Health on Wednesday laid out where the health insurer will be offering plans starting in 2020. By then, it’ll be in 12 states, which we decided warranted a map (big thanks to Shayanne Gal for that!).

$950 million insurer Bright Health is plotting a massive expansion as startups look to reinvent how Americans get healthcare
The Minneapolis-based health-insurance startup Bright Health plans to double its geographic footprint in 2020.
By 2020, the company expects to be in 12 states, up from six in 2019.
Bright offers insurance to individuals under the Affordable Care Act and coverage to seniors in Medicare Advantage, partnering with one health system in each market to help set up its insurance plan.
The venture-backed health insurers Oscar Health and Devoted Health are also planning to expand in 2020.
With new data coming out on the future of HIV treatment, Emma reports that three companies in particular stand to be the biggest winners. That’s in part because of new treatments, as well as more use of existing, preventive treatments.
The future of HIV treatments will change dramatically in the next decade, Citi says. These 3 companies could be the biggest winners.
Since 2012, a preventive HIV medication has been available in the US, making it possible for those at risk to reduce their chances of contracting the disease.
Citi analysts predict the US market for these types of drugs will nearly triple by 2030 to about $5.5 billion, thanks to factors like President Donald Trump’s new plan to stop HIV.
New drugs from the US drug giant Merck, the HIV-focused drugmaker ViiV Healthcare, and the biopharma Gilead could dominate the preventive HIV market over the next decade, the Citi team said.
This week in conversation with the healthcare team
That’s all from us this week. We’ll be back in August with some more big projects ahead you won’t want to miss.

A pair of ripe bananas for Rs 442. While the price was exorbitant enough for Rahul Bose to take to Twitter and post the bill of a five-star hotel, we also went bananas and tried finding out the fruit’s cost — no, not at sabzi mandis, but from chefs. Bose, in a video of himself at JW Marriott in Chandigarh, wrote: “You have to see this to believe it. Who said fruit wasn’t harmful to your existence?”. He had signed off with hashtag- #GoingBananas
The cost of the humble bananas, presented as a “fruit platter”, has left a certain section of the hotel industry stunned as well. Chef Manish Mehrotra from Indian Accent, which has been awarded the Best Restaurant in India for five consecutive years and ranked 17 in The World’s 50 Best, said he would have preferred to give two ripe bananas for free at his restaurant. “Buying something from the market and offering it without putting any extra effort, doesn’t justify the extra charge,” the chef told indianexpress.com.
“I know Rahul; the hotel he stayed at didn’t do anything to embellish the bananas, like cutting it in an appealing manner or garnishing with nuts, so it doesn’t really make sense,” he remarked.
Amey Pravin Mhatre, chef at De Partie in Taj Wellington, a property of Taj Mahal Mumbai, informed that they charge Rs 300 for a large fruit platter. He, however, added that because they (JW Marriott) did not have any other category to peg the bill under, it read ‘fruit platter’, saying that, “they could have billed it under Chef’s Special and charged him Rs 100 or Rs 200 for a couple of bananas”.
When asked what the Taj charges for two bananas, the chef said that they sell it on MRP at Taj Deli Mart where guests can buy fresh organic fruits, cereals, variety of basic items as well as some healthy raw items at market rates. “We don’t charge a fruit platter price for two bananas. All the hype that this incident created wasn’t required because if you stay in a five-star hotel, you do not just pay for the products but also for their excellent services and for an actor like Bose it shouldn’t be a big deal,” the chef opined.
People also posted their ‘Rahul Bose moment‘ on social media, sharing pictures of bills from luxurious hotels where they were charged an ‘extravagant’ amount. The banana, commonly known as the poor man’s fruit in India, is among the most affordable and a dozen come for around Rs 40, with a kilo costing around Rs 60-65. An easy source of potassium, the fruit is highly preferred by fitness enthusiasts.
While sources in the hotel industry justified to The Indian Express saying that a five-star hotel (where room rent is Rs 7,500 and above per night) can charge 18 per cent tax on sale of an item, GST experts said that as per law, fresh fruits are not taxable at all.
Meanwhile, according to excise officials, the case is prima facie a violation of the Consumer Protection Act, 1986. Chandigarh Deputy Commissioner and Excise and Taxation Commissioner Mandip Singh Brar ordered an investigation to probe the levying of GST on two fresh bananas at JW Marriott hotel and a three-member team visited the hotel in Sector 35 and seized the relevant records.
Assistant Excise and Taxation Commissioner Rajeev Chaudhary told Chandigarh Newsline, “ETOs have seized all relevant records. The question here is that fresh fruits are tax-free items, whatever the case may be, and ‘fruit platter’ is a taxable item. But the actor has been given fresh fruits and tax has been charged on it so we are investigating all angles. We are even probing whether relevant tax is being deposited regularly with the excise and taxation department or not.”
[productsample] The inspiration for this collection from Lucia Pica comes straight from a Gabrielle Chanel quote, “Women think of all colours except the absence of colour. I have said that black has it all. White too. Their beauty is absolute. It is the perfect harmony.” As someone whose wardrobe is predominantly black and white, I completely agree.
I love this return to a pared back colour palette – once again, CHANEL tips trends on their head by simplifying without reducing impact. There are only 15 products for fall-winter – you won’t be met with a wall of colours at counter because, while the collection does dip into dark and deep tones to sit alongside the crispness of white, they’re very in keeping with the theme.
My two favourites are the Rouge Coco Gloss in Crystal Clear (there’s also a black one called Laqua Noir), £28 and Ombre Premiere Top Coat in Carte Blanche (also available in a golden shade, Penombre), £28. Ombre Premiere is a multi-use product – you can use it as a topper for lids, lips or cheek bones and it gives a gleaming milky effect on the skin. The gloss – it goes without saying – is a shimmer shower of glistening lacquer – much easier to wear than its black counterpart and and easy win on its own or over any other colour.
Visceral reds are Lucia’s forte – Rouge Allure Velvet Extreme in Rouge Obscur, £31, fits the brief – vampy, deeply matte colour that doesn’t need anything surrounding it. There’s another, softer, pink based shade called Rose Nocturne.
There are two Les 4 Ombres palettes – this one, Modern Glamour, £44, and another black, white and silver version called Noir Supreme which looks to be a more difficult wear than this. Each of these shades work really well on their own so when I look at it I see four single shades rather than something I would attempt to blend together. I’ve put a bit of light on this picture so the colours really show through but they are slightly darker toned in reality. You can see a black nail polish in the corner – guess what? There’s also a white one! I’m not sure I want to attempt either, but you never know, these notoriously hard to get right colours might appeal at some point.
Lucia has taken reference from the French silver screen era and stage lighting from that time which really shows though especially if you think of a black and white film from that time and the colour nuance that you’d find with greys and sepia tones for example. Black and white, as a theme, is extremely versatile – it’s the 1960’s, the 1920’s, the future and the past – but keeping it relevant for ‘now’ is difficult. With the exception of the nails, everything in the CHANEL Noir et Blanc Fall-Winter 2019 collection is relevant and wearable.
Swatches, bottom to top: Rouge Allure Velvet Extreme Rouge Obscur, Rouge Coco Gloss Crystal Clear, Ombre Premier Top Coat Carte Blanche, Les 4 Ombres Modern Glamour. The collection launches on 2nd August.

Summer, sun & sunnies!As the sun rises in the sky, our mood improvesdramatically. Pools, lakes, and beaches fill up with smiling peopleeager for a refreshing dip.Of course the great weather also makes us want to work out, butwho’s actually motivated to do a HIIT session or gorunning in the heat?
These 10 tips will help you stay cool during your workouts even when it’s sweltering outside!
How your body reacts to heat
Physical activity at temperaturesabove85°F/30°C noticeably strains your body and cardiovascular system. The heat also makes your body temperature rise. Your body reacts withhighersweat production, your heart rate increases, and your blood vessels dilate. Here’s what you can do to best support your body when running in the heat:
1. Start your summer workouts slowly
Give your body time to adjust to the higher temperatures. Avoid intense training sessions during the first few really hot days and start off slowly. Increase your workout intensity step by step andlet your body acclimate.
Listen to your body:
Be flexible with your running schedule and allow yourself the chance to adapt your speed and distance to the conditions. Give yourself a realistic timeframe that you can manage and run according to how you feel. Mix up your pace and adjust your performance level to the heat.
2. Heat affects your heart
In summer, your heart rate is elevated. When running with a heart rate monitor, remember that higher temperatures also boost your heart rate even if you run at your usual pace. Therefore, it might be a good idea to take it a bit slower. The fitter you are, the better your body will cope with the heat, preventing your heart ratefrom skyrocketing.
Try the heart rate calculator:
3. Avoid midday heat
Choosing the right time of day for your training runs or races is vital during the summer months. Avoid running in the midday heat and head out in the morning or evening instead. At that time of day, it’s not only cooler, but there’s also less ozone in the atmosphere. High ozone values can irritate your eyes and airways.
4. Select the right routes
With the sun burning in the sky, adjusting your route definitely makes sense.Asphalt and cement absorb heat and transfer it to you. The hottest time of the day can be a good opportunity for you to leave your usual road routes and hit the trails. A run or workout in the woods is a lot of fun, adds variety to your training, and offers needed shade. At the same time, you will be forced to run slower on rough terrain, which will give your heart a break.If it’s still too hot (or there’s no forest nearby), you might want torun on a treadmill.
5. Choose the right outfit
Theappropriateworkout clothes can protect your skin fromUVrays, even better than some sunscreens. Go for a loose fit and moisture-wicking materials for both your shirt and shorts to prevent heat from building up under your clothes.Running in cotton clothing is counterproductive, because it absorbs your sweat without wicking it away, plus, it doesn’t dry. The right material can help you avoid trapping the heat next to your body.Make sure you choose light colors. They reflect the sunlight and don’t store the heat. Shirt and shorts are just part of your outfit, though. A cap or light scarf can protect your head while keeping your face in the shade. Last but not least, wear sunglasses withUV protection.
6. Protect your skin
Cover all skinthat isexposed to the sun with waterproof sunscreen (due to the sweat). The sun protection factor (SPF) tells you how long the sunscreen extends your skin’s own natural protection time. How much sunscreen you need depends on your skin type, the time of day,and current UV levels. Don’t forget to rub some on your neck, the back of your knees,and your ears!
Good to know:
The purpose of sweat is to cool your body. When sweat evaporates, it cools your blood vessels and your skin. Greasy sunscreen clogs your pores and make it harder for your body to sweat.
7. Stay hydrated
Whenjoggingin the heat, your body tries to lower your core body temperature by sweating more. This causes you to lose fluids and minerals like magnesium or iron. Even a small change in your fluid balance can lead to major performance losses. The most important thing is to start off well hydrated.Drink regularly throughout the dayand stick to diluted fruit juices, teas,and water (tap or mineral). If you’re going to be working out for more than an hour, make sure to have a water bottle with you and take a sip from time to time.Many cities also have public water fountains. If you don’t want to carry a water bottle with you, plan your runs on routes where water is available. Find out how much water you should drink a day:

8. Fill up on minerals
Wholesome foods rich in vitamins and minerals should be a regular part of your meal plan the whole year round. But when it’s hot outside, your body loses more minerals than usual due to sweating. Since your body can’t produce these on its own, they have to be obtained through the food you eat. Foods such as bananas, dried apricots and whole grain products are ideal for replacing lost minerals and make great post-workout snacks.
9. Don’t be too ambitious
If you experience headaches, intense thirst, muscle cramps or dizziness, you should stop immediately, look for shade,anddrink some water.Excessive confidenceis often your worst enemy when running in the heat, so leave it at home. Your body also needs longer to recover when it is very hot.Ifyou don’t feel well, the heat is bearing down,and it’s really humid, then it’s probably a good idea to take a rest day or opt for a morerefreshing training alternative.
10. Find great training alternatives
Pounding out kilometer after kilometer, drenched in sweat with a bright red face? It doesn’t have to be like that. When the pavement is scorching,trade your running shoes for a pair of wheels. Biking is a good way to supplement your running training and enjoy the cool breeze.Water aerobicsor aqua jogging are good ways to cool off and still get the training effect your muscles need.
