Default Hair transplant at ahd with dr. Hakan doganay

I am writing this post to show my experiance with my 2nd (and if it doesn't go as expected, last) ht operation in order to help others in their decision about ht and dr selection. Also, this is writen in real time so i don't know the results yet, but we will find out together.

For those who like it short and sweat read just this first post.

-2590 grafts ht with dr. Doganay (diffuse alopecia, 33 years old male, 2nd ht/repair, big scar on the donor zone from another medical procedure)

-two day operation, 4 day/3 nights stay in Antalya (the doctor suggested a two day op and i gladly accepted it)

-Area of coverage: hair line and temples maximum, middle part medium and upper middle part of the head minimum with no hairs transplanted in crown area as per my request

- extraction: automated, 300 single grafts, 1255 double grafts, 1035 triple grafts (extraction was all done by a tehnician after the doctor consulted him and draw the border lines for the extraction)

-implantation: choi pen all done by Dr. Doganay

-Professionalism at top level; the op was completely painless (except for the anestetic), it was running smooth with no stoping, consutations before every part of the procedure, at least 3 people present at all time during the operation, but mostly 4, minimal to none language barrier vis a vis personal assistant/translator who was present at all time

-Reciving area very clean,minimal bleeding, graft placement excelent, density very good (considering diffuse hair loss and thinning hair with no completely bald spots), great coverage with given amount of grafts

-Donor area with almost no bleeding (second night after pilow case completly clean with not one blood spot), very equally harvested with no big scaring

-For now no swelling any where; day after the first part and the day after the second part i was little bit swollen on my forhed but it is completely gone now (2 days after)

-All expenses included, except for the plain ticket; hotel, driv3r, 3 meals per day (two at the hotel, one in the clinic), personal assistant/translator, post op medications which also included food suplements (biotin), finasterid, hair lotion, hair shampoo, hair serum (for growth) and a silly looking fishermans hat.

Now i just need to see how does the donor heal, then i need to is if there will be any shock loss to my native hair and how well do the transplanted graft hold on, and finaly i need to see how well does my transplanted hair grow.

Expectation before the operation 4/5

Expectation after the operation 5/5

Before




2 days after HT Dr. Doganay

Default I was told that my ht looks a little boody

I don't think so because i can compare it to my first HT.
The doctor also said that with this explanation:
1. apparently i have unusually strong blood circulation ergo little more bleeding in the donor
2. my grafts are a bit shorter than normal, so the doctor stggled a bit to place them and he had to cement them or some thing like that

This is what bloody looks like in my case (first bad HT exp):
day after, last pic 2 days after

His standard price is 2/graft, but it looks like he has some kind of semi permanent discount.
I had saved up enough to go to any ht surgeon in Turky so i choose dr. Hakan between three of the best. One didn't have such good result for the thing i wanted, the other vetted me so much that it seemed like he was selecting me and not the other way around and dr. Hakan had very good result for the thing that i needed.
Also, i had seen few of my colleges results from dr. Hakan ht and it was very good.

Default 5th day update

Five days after the opreration everything looks good...for now.

Donor area scabs had fell off, and my donor looks ok, or so i think. No noticeable scaring and also no swelling. During my first op my donor looked like a golf ball for around three weeks.

Actualy, i didn't have any swelling anywhere after my second day!
And no pain whatsoever, so that's cool...

Thx, i do hope so...

In my first HT i was scammed, horrible HL, they lied about the number of transplated grafts, didn't plant them where i wanted, i lost a part of my donor...
The worst thing is the shock of going from a guy with "not so great hair" to a "diffused guy" that can't cover up his head even with longer hair!
And also, i lost my money, and just so you understand, 2000€ in my country is like 5-6000€ in your country... doctors in my country earn from 1500-2500€ per month.
You can see what happened here:

You keep following and commenting, and i will keep this thread alive for at least a year.
