OUR PHILOSOPHY ......... age beautifully
Creating an age-appropriate final result is the endpoint Dr Cyriac has clearly defined for himself when performing cosmetic procedures, especially hair transplantation.
Dr Chacko Cyriac firmly believes that an attractive face is not limited to the young. No matter how old one might be, hair loss can make it seem worse. In Dr Cyriac’s opinion, doing a hair transplant does not necessarily mean erasing every sign of baldness, but more importantly, reducing the extent of baldness in tune with the rest of the face and body. This balanced approach offers the distinctive advantage of creating an age appropriate final result.
Dr Cyriac takes time and effort in ensuring that his hair transplant patients have the most natural looking surgical results as possible. He employs all principles of Plastic Surgery to make sure each patient looks the best possible without producing any obvious signs of having undergone a surgical procedure.
Choose your doctor wisely
Ask for your surgeon’s qualifications….
what his primary training is in….
if he is qualified and trained to do surgery….
what kind of surgery….
Today, with the booming cosmetic surgery industry coupled with little or no control over the practice of medicine, untrained and unqualified personnel too are pitching in, to get for themselves, a share of the pie.
Hair transplant is a typical example
There are technicians (non-medical personnel), Ayurvedic and homeopathic doctors and even physicians like dermatologists (skin specialists are not surgeons), ENT surgeons claiming to be cosmetic surgeons, doing hair transplantation, in all parts of the world, including in Kerala, India. As far as training and expertise is concerned, your best bet for your hair transplant is a qualified, trained Plastic Surgeon.
The specialty of Plastic Surgery is the only specialty where the trainees go through training in cosmetic surgery and hair transplantation as part of their curriculum. Therefore look for the degree in Plastic Surgery before you decide on going under the knife…

What's New in our practice
The vip experience
All patients coming to our service in Kerala for hair transplantation are treated as VIPs. Confidentiality is strictly maintained at every level. All pictures taken too will be shown to the patient for their approval. We will not release any information about you or your procedure to anybody under any circumstance without your prior approval.
This having been said, we understand the fact that many of our patients require a greater degree of privacy. For these patients, we offer consultations at more convenient timings. We ensure that there is no other patient present at the same time for any reason whatsoever. If an out-patient procedure is to be done, we can lock down our facility on that day to make sure that you are our only patient for the day.
For the VIP experience, please indicate your requirement when you book a consultation with us.
For further information about a service we provide, we request you to contact us for a consultation.
Book your consultation – the world awaits a new you !!!
For patients coming in from abroad, we request you to send us your travel itinerary. We will help plan out your consultation and hair transplant procedure, with minimal disruption of your busy schedule. We will take into account the post procedure rest period required etc when framing the schedule for your visit.
If required, we can arrange for patients to be picked up and dropped at their destination of choice. We can help arrange sightseeing tours too to coincide with the post-transplant period.
