Default Dr Koray Erdogan ASMED, April 13th 2016 2490 grafts (Total 4892 grafts)

Hi everyone,

I had my second surgery at Asmed last week on the 13th April (2016). Once again my experience was truly wonderful.

I arrived in Turkey in the late afternoon after my flight was delayed for more than 2 hours. And reached the clinic about 3.30pm due to the heavy traffic. Standard procedure really; photographs were taken consisting of dry and wet shots. And I waited for Dr Erdogan to finish evaluating my photos. I took the opportunity to say hello to all the staff who were still there from my last visit in 2013. I am happy to say they have not forgotten who I was! (All them hugs and kisses)

Now the moment I had been waiting for. To once again meet the man who helped turn my life around; Dr Erdogan. I was led upstairs and there he was. With a huge smile, we embraced like old friends.

We discussed my pervious experience and had a good catch up.

Now the main things I wanted to know:

My donor density, the microns of my donor and my donor capacity:

My donor after my first operation was calculated at 8500 grafts. When I was told this, I was shocked. I could not believe this figure as I already had 2400 grafts from my first surgery. I kept asking "are you sure". I have no data regarding my total donor before any surgery but Dr Erdogan stated I had 10,500 total donor.

My micron was measured at 70. Once again this measurement was given after removing 2400 grafts from first surgery. I was then told I have over 5.5k donor left in reserve after second surgery.

We then headed downstairs were we discussed the hair line and Dilek appeared. Hugs were exchanged, I thanked her and she looked at her handy work (she was the main tech who worked on me last time). Dr Erdogan asked me what type of hair line I wanted. I said to lower it, close the temples slightly (my right temple had more loss) and fill in the weak areas. Dr Erdogan with Dilek discussed the hair line and I wanted it to be lower! He said to trust him as he wanted to work on the vertex and I am glad I did.

Over to graft numbers. I told him I have a budget of 3000 grafts. And to my surprise Dr Erdogan and Dilek said I only need 2400 as my donor is really dense (they commented it how dense it was; when Dr Erdogan was doing his measurements I could see from his face he was surprised). I wanted 3k but once again Dr Erdogan and Dilek asked me to trust them.

I met Alessio the marketing manager and his hair at I think at 7 months is looking excellent. I found him to be very soft-spoken. I also met Dr Umut who also has had his surgery with the clinic. I found this guy very serious and he was really scary. But I managed to make him laugh and he was joking about as well. Alessio's and Dr Umat's results have been posted on this forum.

Hair line was agreed, photos taken and I was taken back to the hotel.

The next day I was picked up by the clinic driver and taken to the clinic. Head was shaved again and washed. I was taken downstairs and surgery began at 8am. After the extractions were completed and lunch. I was given meds by Dr Umat. PRP was administered before or after Dr Erdogan came in to make the incisions, I cannot remember when. After this time, I fell asleep. I woke up at 4.30pm and surgery was just about to finish. I received 2490 grafts and was not charged for the extra 90

I think the reason I kept falling asleep was I had been awake since 12pm UK time from Monday and did not sleep much from Tuesday when I was in Turkey. I must have been awake for 35 hours plus.

Photos were taken and I was given my med kit. I had to use the ATP spray every 2 hours for 2 days. It ran out by the third day. Back at the hotel I felt good. I met a few other patients as well and we had dinner together.

Sleeping was great and I awoke on Thursday refreshed. No swelling at all. Once again, I was taken to the clinic for washing and dropped back to the hotel, bandage was removed. I spent the whole day sight seeing and visited different malls.

Friday morning I was taken back to the clinic for washing. I did not get to say goodbye Dr Erdogan as he was busy in surgery. I bid goodbye to the staff I did see and left for the airport. I arrived in the UK at 2pm and went through customs quickly. I was in my car by 4pm (I drove myself to the airport and back). It took me 4 hours to get home due to the traffic and roadwork's when the usual travelling time is 90 mins. Once at home the swelling started. Swelling had gone by Wednesday.

Once again, many thanks to Dr Erdogan, Dilek, my personal translator and all the other staff at Asmed.

Hi Yaz89, congrats on the 2nd HT. I followed your original thread and it was an influencer in my own decision to choose Asmed/Erdogan. I had my procedure in December, Dilek was my main Tech, Umat took care of the drugs, and Alessio was happy for me to closely inspect his own HT when he was approaching his 3 own month milestone...it was great to see all those familiar names in your write up.

I look forward to reading your updates!
