At the end of one-year, subjective evaluation was done with patient’s satisfaction to growth as- poor growth, satisfactory and good growth.
Results: Out of 152 patients, maximum patients 74 (48.6%) were in age group 21-30, followed by 61 (40.01%) in age group 31-40, mean age was 31.79, youngest being 21 years and oldest being 70 years of age. Among the complications, swelling of forehead was in more than two- thirds of the patients 106 (69.74%), followed by temporary hair fall noted in 65 (42.76%) of patients. Clients’ remarks noted at the end on one-year revealed 86.18% as excellent results, 11.84% as satisfactory and 1.97% as poor results.
