Hello there,
I've been reading this thread and first I wld like to thank you for sharing your experience. Ive been reading many forums about hairloss and discovered recently Dr Maral. I have to say that what I'm looking for is a good Quality/price combination. I wanted to send you Hesediel a private msg but I couldn't (probably because I just joined the forum and I have to be more active to do it?)
Anyways, I wanted to ask you how to get in touch with the doctor to expose him my case and eventually fix an appointment? How did you proceed to do so? (Tried to find his website but apparently it is down?) I would be thankful if u could provide me a link or a contact.

Thank you very much and I wish you a best progress!

I can vouch for Dr Maral - i had a HT with him on Feb 14th. If you just google search Maral Klinik you will find him !

I am also very satisfied with everything and recommend him warmly. I just checked and the English and German site is really down (strangely), but you can find the contacts, including email address, on the front page if you just google "Maral Klinik."

Hi Setkaro,

as the other forum friends already said, you can contact Dr. Maral directly on Sa? Ekimi Merkezi, Fiyatlar and fill the form sending your hair pics and describing your situation. The doctor will get back to you and eventually ask you more info/pics and schedule your appointment

Thank you for everyone sharing their stories. I'm on the verge of deciding a HT clinic in Turkey since I live here for the time being. I have had 3 online consultations from Dr. Koray Erdogan, Maral Klinik and Dr. Hakan Doganay of Antalya.
Correct me if I'm wrong but all the job extraction ,incision and implantation in Maral Clinic done by assistants not the doctor himself. Is it ok to be done like that?
In other two clinics supposedly doctors involved in all aspects of the operation and assistants just do the assisting.
By the way Dr. Erdogan quoted 2.5 €/graft, Dr. Hakan 2 €/graft and Maral only €1.380 fixed price for around 2.500-3.000 grafts. Maral price is insanely low compared to others.

UPDATE:


I have noticed a couple of very short hair poking out from the scalp which havent grew in weeks.
So today I took a twizzer and i pulled them out. They made absolutely no resistence and the end was hook-shaped, with no bulb or anything.

Are these dead grafts? Or just dead hair?

Its not many of them (i counted 7) but now I'm worried. (probably overreacting)

Hesediel, are you considering going back for another HT?

So far, I am satisfied with my 3000 graft FUE from Maral Klinik, i'm at 3 months. Even though it's too early to talk like this, I know for a fact that I want a 2nd, smaller HT to further lower the hairline just a tiny bit if Dr Maral allows it.

I have attached photos of how my hair looks right now.

How does it look so far? It'll look better in the 8th-9th month I know, but I can pretty much get a glimpse of the final result, and I am sure I will go back for a 2nd and final HT in Maral Klinik, for that hair line. I let my hair grow until a few days ago, and definitely the hair that's grown out in the front helps me cover my forehead which is good news.

Hi Jimmy and sorry for my late reply, yeah I will consider Dr. Maral for a 2nd HT in case my density won't be satisfying but so far its been great.
Lowering the hairline is a good idea but it also depends how's your face shape, I think I would look kinda weird with a very low hairline. Maybe because I've always had a wide forehead and a high hairline? I don't know

How's your growth going on?

Hey everyone, thanks Fred for updating this thread since I actually forgot to do it. Its been a busy period between my job and my university classes.

So, I'm at month 8 and so far its been GREAT.
The hair keep growing, thicking, I don't know if I could be happier.

I think I'm at 70-80% of the final result so I was actually thinking to wait til month 9-10 before posting pictures.
I went to a new hairdresser/barber last thursday since I had to cut them for a friend's wedding ceremony and the hairdresser didn't ask about my hair until when, after the cut, I told him it was transplanted hair. His face was priceless. I can't believe people can't tell the difference.

My donor area is in great shape, no itching and nothing noticeable. The receiving area sometimes is a bit itchy but also I have to admit I touch it a lot and sometimes also with dirty hands, I scratch it, etc etc which may lead to this itching I get sometimes.
Hair are around 4cm long now and the thickness is improving week after week.

Somehow the right side is a little bit thicker than the left side, its also true my right side had less hair loss compared to the left side. So that's interesting.

Also, it's fall season and I've been losing some hair (see them in the sink, or find them on the pillow in the morning) but no more than... 20-30 per day. Sure I notice them but it makes sense since in fall we all have the seasonal effluvim.

So yeah, I'm happy and I think that's all that matters.
I love my new hair, I love not having to worry about them anymore, I love feeling normal once again when I hang out with my 20-25yo friends and none of them has suffered any balding. I feel comfortable with myself and there's no price I wouldnt have paid for that.

I will take more pics and update the thread again after 9 months so we can compare the pre-HT pics and the 9th month pics for a very effective comparison.

Also, I've noticed there's still a huge shitstorm about Dr. Maral. Bah, whatever.
Honestly I couldn't be happier.

Take care everyone and remember if you have any question feel free to message me in private, I can give you my skype name and we can also videochat or something, no problem!
