Default 4300 grafts with Dr resul Yaman 12th April 2017

Finally after 2 weeks of my HT I am getting round to writing a detailed review for my first HT. 12th April 4300 grafts with DR Resul Yaman

I am 30 year old guy suffering from Hair loss for more than 6-7 year. Losing hair made me really depress and affected my confidence.

In the last 2 years I become serious about searching for HT. Initially i was gona go for one of those cheap technician clinics in turkey, until I came across these forums and found out you search for a good surgeon not the clinic

Why I choose Dr yaman, you find the link here and reasons for my decision. But one of the fundamental reasons was the recommendations here patients testimonies plus he was in my price range.

I contacted loads of clinics and doctors all of them quoted me around 3500-4500 grafts but I found consultation from Dr Yaman and Yaman (patient representative) to be extremely good detailed and he even answered all my silly questions and trust me I had LOADS !! I had Skype CONSULTATION with Dr yaman initially I was quoted 4500 grafts

I was advised to use finasteride 15 days prior to surgery but I refused to use it for obvious reasons. but I am taking supplements
Biotin MSM flex seed oil CASTOR and rosemary oil massages

Consultation

on 11th April when I arrived I was picked up on time from airport and taken straight to clinic I had consultation with Dr Yaman, he talked through my hair line and answered all my questions and suggested 4700 grafts -he talks in Turkish and the translator does the translation

I told them I just want hairline front and top done maybe I will come back for crown in 9 months to a year time. Dr agreed that it's a good idea and said then I don't need more than 4300 grafts.

I was very happy with all the consultation. Taken back to hotel which is lovely . Make sure you make use of Sauna, Turkish Hamam and steam room in the hotel, because you can't for a month after surgery. Breakfast was included

Surgery day

I was picked up by driver at 9am. Dr did the incisions. and anaesthesia injections (which hurt-absolutely killer) but it's momentary pain and you get over it quickly.
after incisions technician team took over and did the rest. I was very happy they took their time nothing felt rushed and I noticed good practices like changing gloves and masks every time they entered the room. Dr came checked on me few times as well so did Yaman the representative who is a lovely guy.

Half Time

I was offered lunch they also gave lunch to my gf and allowed her to take pics of me during surgery or whenever she wanted.

After lunch repeat of first session. but this time anaesthesia injections were even more painful (maybe I am just a wimp ) I was extremely tired by end of all this. the whole things took 9 hrs .

At one point I felt little dizzy, the whole clinic came to look after me checked my bp offered me some sugar and stopped everything. That was lovely

Stayed in hotel for 3 nights but I was in turkey for 9 days. They happily dropped me to the other side of town as I saying further in Istanbul, which was very kind of them.

Day 3 I went for wash and everything was perfect. I can't fault the service and experience so far.



DAY 9 I was returning to London, the clinic contacted me offered me additional wash including pick and drop which is incredible I didn't even ask for it can't fault the service of Dr yaman team 10/10


Day 12I am on day 12 so far very happy but noticing loads of dandruff I haven't notice any shedding yet.


I was charged 1 euro per graft
including 3 night stay pickup and drop PRP


I am attaching pics for you if any questions feel free to contact me. also feedback is appreciated


I bought proscar from Istanbul and using it every other day and also ordered Minoxidil Kirkland. will be using it on temple and crown area.

Thanks to the forum for recommendation for this, so far I am extremely satisfied, I can't fault anything, even if I try very hard ...

Managed to control the dandruff a little,
did oil (castor) massage on alternative days , and already have seen significant difference. I think it just hides the dandruff , not treats the scalp, I am sure it will come back

Any dandruff solutions people ? I am worried about it. You think it can damage my restoration ?

Hi chevenowner1, thanks for keeping us updated. You were very lucky in terms of the lack of redness on your scalp. Could many/any people tell you had surgery?
