Hi, I have recently travelled from Ireland for an Fue procedure at Maralklinik on 8/11/14.
All my emails and concerns were responded to very clearly and quickly before I decided to travel to Istanbul.
I was met at the airport by a driver for the clinic who was very helpful and pleasant and brought me to the hotel which the clinic paid for . The hotel is My Rose Hotel and is only about a mile from Maralklinik. It's spotless clean and does a good breakfast. The next day I was picked up from the hotel and went to the clinic. The clinic is impeccably clean and modern. I was introduced to Dr Maral and some of his team who are very nice and have very good English . Dr maral spent a good hour with me going through the procedure and answering all of the questions I had. Everything was covered and I was happy to proceed.They are a busy practice and another guy was there to get Fue as well as me.
The procedure :All the work was performed over 8 hours by 3 to 4 of the team. Dr maral came in and out to chat with me and his team . In regards to pain I felt none but the first 2 or 3 injections of anesthetic . Just a small sting , really nothing to worry about. You can watch TV , listen to music etc.even have a nap. I was given lunch about halfway through.My donor area had high density so the got 4900 grafts which I believe is very good. Dr maral was very happy with this and was of the opinion that 1 Fue procedure was going to be enough for me and that they would have more than enough grafts to cover all my top of head. It's a waiting game now.
I would personally like to thank all the staff at Maralklinik for everything and the professionalism that they have. Thank you. I will try to update this post monthly with photos so until then thanks for reading. Last 2 photos are 10 days after procedure . .i have very fair skin so I'd say the redness will take awhile to go . Not sore.
