Hi vchorro,
I'm doing well thank you. Six weeks ago today I finished my second day of the procedure so I'm exactly 4 weeks ahead of you. Read your update earlier, and things are looking good for you. It is almost certain you will shed some hair, but fingers crossed you are one of the lucky ones.
No change for me really 95% of the transplanted hair has gone together with some native hair In a couple of weeks I should be at the half way mark of where I should see some growth. I'm getting a little impatient, but knew it's a slow progress. It's great reading other people progress, especially when the hair starts to appear. Keep us updated, as I will be following your journey.

My first post here. Firstly I would like to thank all the people here who have posted about their experiences and shared their results.
I have a procedure booked with Asmed in Turkey in October. I have been thinking about a HT for around 5 years. During this time I have done quite a bit of research and taken in all the valuable advice and experiences others have gained. I'm going to document my progress and give honest feedback.
A little about myself. I have typical MPB, and have been gradually losing my hair for over 25 years, I'm now 50. I have always had a fairly high hairline, but was able to cover with a fringe etc. The last 5 years due to thinning, I have just been having it shaved off. I have been using fin for the last 6 months to try and stabilise things.
I Decided about 12 months ago, I was going to go for it. I grew my hair longer and gradually started to introduce hair fibres etc. The thought being less of change when the new hair kicks in. The hairfibres work well, and after much use, I have got the application down to a tee. I narrowed my search down to two clinics, totally ruling out the UK. My first consultation was with BHR in London earlier this year. I found communication was poor, and after agreeing timeslots, these kept getting changed although 'booked'. The consultation also felt a bit clinical with the Dr. I was told I needed 3000 grafts via FUT. not what I wanted to hear, as I don't want the linear scar, should I shave my head again. I know price, should not be a big factor, but told afterwards that 20% tax is added in Belgium to the costs. Anyway, I then contacted my second choice of Asmed in Turkey. Communication was and is excellent, pricing is clear and the results are always excellent. I sent my photos to Asmed and advised I need 5000 grafts over two days to restore the hairline, midscalp and crown. It's what I expected, and is still much cheaper than BHR with an extra 2000 grafts to boot. I have booked 2 weeks off work and hope to work from home for another two weeks. I would appreciate any advise or help that you see fit. As I said I will share my journey, which hopefully will enable others to decide their future.
I really appreciate your work and profession, We are all thankful you for sharing your knowledge.
