Hair Transplantation in Pakistan: Cost and Surgeon

What is Hair Transplantation?

Hair transplantation is a surgical hair replacement process that moves individual hair follicles from the donor part of the body to bald the recipient part of the body. Transplanted hair look like natural. You can easily swing, style and brush without any fear. There are a lot of reasons of hair loss such as aging, depression, hair disease, deficiency of vitamin, chemotherapy, menopause etc. In Pakistan at HCI (Hair Club International) dermatologists have studied hair loss. They diagnose the cause and treatment of hair loss. In Pakistan, two methods of hair transplantation (FUT, FUE) is commonly being used.

It is most reliable and modern surgical technique. This technique has been practiced by high qualified paramedical at HCI in different cities of Pakistan (Lahore, Karachi, Multan, Faisalabad and Islamabad).

Hair Transplantation cost in Pakistan

The cost of hair transplant depends upon many factors such as technique (FUE&FUT), the number of graft, qualification, and reputation of a surgeon, Operation Theater, staff and cost etc. Nowadays in Pakistan hair transplantation is affordable. The cost of FUE is higher due to one by one extraction of the follicle. In Pakistan cost of FUE is charged per graft or follicle.

  • FUE 2000 grafts=2000$ and after 30% discount 1400 $US
  • FUE 4000 grafts=4000$ and after 30% discount 2800 $US

Hepatitis C in Pakistan: Causes, Symptoms, Prevention and Treatment

Viral hepatitis is a serious global public health problem. At present, six distinct types of hepatitis virus have been identified and called as hepatitis A, B, C, D, E and G viruses. Hepatitis C is a most dangerous because it is a “silent infection” that can infect people without them knowing it. Hepatitis C quietly and continuously attacks and damage the liver over many years without being detected. It is the liver disease caused by hepatitis C virus (HCV). It causes chronic liver disease and liver cancer. Therefore, the role of health care professionals is very significant in alleviating the prevalence and burden of hepatitis C from Pakistan.

Causes

In Pakistan, hepatitis C viral infections mostly spread due to:

  • Transfusion of unscreened blood.
  • Transfer through shared or re-used needles.
  • Poorly sterilized medical equipments.
  • Improper sterilization of invasive medical devices used in surgery and other internal examinations of the patient.
  • Reuse of syringes by health care providers for common ailments.
  • Transfer from an infected mother to her newborn baby during delivery.

 

  • jaundice (a yellowing of the skin and eyes)
  • abdominal pain
  • loss of appetite
  • nausea and vomiting
  • diarrhea
  • fever

Preventions

Once an individual acquires hepatitis C, it brings a number of challenges that are not only limited to the physical suffering but also affect the psychological, social and financial issues throughout his life No vaccine against hepatitis C is available. However, there are a number of vaccines under development and some have shown encouraging results. A combination of harm reduction strategies, such as the provision of new needles and syringes and treatment of substance use, decreases the risk of hepatitis C in intravenous drug users by about 75%.

 Treatment

HCV induces chronic infection in 50–80% of infected persons. Approximately 40–80% of these clear with treatment. According to the NIH, Hepatitis C will resolve on its own over several weeks or months. Chronic hepatitis C infections (which do not get better on their own after a few months) may be treated with antiviral medications such as pegylated interferon injections. Ribavirin (trade name Copegus, Rebetol, Ribasphere) is used for the treatment for hepatitis C. However, ribavairin must be taken with peginterferon in order for it to be an effective treatment against hepatitis C. Otherwise, liver transplants may be necessary if the liver is severely damaged.

 

 

 

 

Difference between CSS and PMS

Main Difference

Most of the candidates get confused that weather they should choose an option of CSS or PMS. The main difference between CSS and PMS must be cleared before the discussion of optioning CSS and PMS. Both look like same, but there is a clear main difference between CSS and PMS exam. CSS is the competition on the national level while PMS is on a provincial level. CSS is a competitive examination held by federal public service commission every year for allocation of successful candidates in eight different cadres or groups of services, on the other hand, PMS is conducted by provincial management services of all the five provinces of Pakistan.

CSS VS PMS

For the convenience of the candidates, there is a brief explanation of the differences between these two types of exams.

CSS

The Central Superior Services (denoted as CSS or Bureaucracy) is an elite permanent bureaucratic authority, and the civil service that is responsible for running the civilian bureaucratic operations and government secretariats and directorates of the Cabinet secretariat. The CSS officers serve the country wide departments and they will have to travel to far and wide areas of the country.

PMS

PMS (Provisional Management Service) held by Provincial Public Service Commission (PPSC) of the four provinces of Pakistan to fill the empty seats on the posts of Provincial Management Service. PMS exams usually conducted for the provision of posts in various departments of regional government. This exam is not held on regular basis. For example, KPK PSC announced the PMS in 2008 and then after the lapse of two years the examination was again announced in 2010. PMS Officers have to serve only in a province. In PMS, your limit is your province and getting settled in any part of your own province is not as much painstaking job.

Differences

Both these examinations are equally good. No one of these is that of superior or inferior nature.

  1. PMS is conducted by provincial Public Service Commissions (PPSC, KPSC, SPSC, BPSC) while CSS is conducted by Federal Public Service Commission (FPSC).
  2. CSS is held every year regularly, but PMS exam is held after arbitrary intervals. Like in Punjab, from 2004 to 2013, only three PMS batches are conducted.
  3. In combined Competitive Examinations held by Provincial Public Service Commissions, there are different groups in which recruitment is sought for. All the candidates recruited through this exam are not the PMS Officers. Only those who specifically are placed in PMS group are called PMS Officers. In Punjab, PMS exams, up till now, have been held to recruit in Local Fund Audit, Excise and Taxation and Provincial Management Service (PMS).
  4. PMS Officers have to serve within the territory of their respective provinces (where they are domiciled) unlike those inducted through CSS who have to serve a mandatory period of at least 5 years out of their provinces.
  5. All the optional subjects in PMS are of 200 marks while, in CSS, optional subjects are of 100 and 200 marks out of which the candidate has to select subjects of 600 marks in total.
  6. Time allowed for the essay paper is only 2 hours in PMS while it is 3 hours in CSS.
  7. There is one very difficult paper in PMS with negative marking i.e. General Knowledge while is CSS there is no paper with negative marking.
  8. In CSS, candidate has to earn an overall 40% out of all three papers of General Knowledge (Pakistan Affairs, Current Affairs, and everyday science) to clear these papers. In this way, if a candidate fails in one or two of General Knowledge papers but his aggregate in GK papers is 40%, he is considered to have passed all GK papers. If a candidate fails in one of the optional subjects, but his aggregate in all other subjects excluding the marks in failing subject, is more than 50%, he qualifies for interview. But in PMS, one has to clear every subject separately and no such concessions are given.
  9. Both exams are conducted in 1200 marks of written examination, but there are 200 marks of interview in PMS and 300 in CSS.
  10. Psychological test in both is carried out for two days, one day for group discussion and second for individual interview.

All Pakistan Private School Federation and Pakistan Education Council has announced two day strike in Private Schools situated in Lahore city. Following this private schools will remain close on 8 and 9 March.

Furthermore, sources also told that all the A-category schools in Punjab’s capital city will remain close due to the amended education Bill.

The private school owners are of the point that the orders of Punjab Government will lay more financial burden on private school owners.
