  1. Past hour
  2. Good point, but why not post a similar photo of patients coverage area post the procedure as well?
  3. Today
  4. That doctor is crazy then. I had a better result on 35cm2 on my first pass. If that is 50 then I would say a lot did not grow. I was always told 35-40 per cm2 the most and come back for a second. Anymore then that you can run into blood flow issues and survival of graft. I am sure some people can do it but I would feel better playing it safe.
  5. What kind of post op instructions did the patient not follow that could compromise his yield besides the meds? I’ve read grafts are very secure and permanent at roughly 7-10 days post op
  6. You need to provide proofs of your words. I can provide all messaging with Kaan, where I was concerned every month sending photos, asking why bad results, discussing side effects, which I got from the drugs. Future clients of this clinic be aware in case something goes wrong just wait for long messages of his team how you did not follow surgery instructions, did not care about the op, slept on the wrong side and so on:)
  7. Dredd, in your case medicines were mandatory because your androgenetic alopecia was miniaturizing also the donor area (it is a condition called DUPA and is more common than people think) and dr. Pekiner told you that many times. Not only you did not take Finasteride and Minoxidil as prescribed, you even started minoxidil on and off, that is worse than not taking it at all. You said you got Finasteride driven depression after 2 weeks of usage, which looks rather unlikely. You said you got side effects from Minoxidil and even from Xpecia that is a mild Saw Palmetto supplement. Dr. Pekiner also suspects you did not follow post surgery instructions, because you always behaved like you did not care, probably you were thinking that you just had to pay the money to the surgeon and get the results without being annoyed by medicines and post operative care. But the first month after the operation is the most important one. It is like a fat man not following post operative instructions after a liposuction and starting to eat pies and donuts and lift heavy weights the day after. Surgery doesn't work this way, you must follow and trust doctor instruction and advices, it is not like "this is your money doc, now I want the problem solved". At the end we have some suspects but we don't know exactly what happened, while you look so sure it was all dr. Pekiner's failure and like 2 weeks ago you started to feel the urge to inform the whole world. Please don't worry about this Lixin. I also invite other dr. Pekiner's future patient not to fall prey of a free shooter only interested in destroying the clinic reputation. I will start posting all the clinic good cases in this forum as well, I just need a little time. Please check all the surgeries before and after both of Dredd's operations and you will see 3 perfect frontal dense packs and 1 norwood 6 reconstruction in 2 steps. As I specified before, this case was not treated at an extreme density of more than 50 grafts per cm2, which is often called super dense pack. It was a "classic" high density of around 50 grafts per cm2. DHI method, that is basically a marketing term coined for incisions and implantations via implanter pens, shares the same philosophy of the stick and place technique used by dr. Pekiner, that is placing the graft immediately after opening the channel. Having said that, there are many other clinics, using different techniques, like lateral slit with custom blade made incisions, or placers instead of implanters, that can achieve great density all the same.
  8. Yesterday
  9. More than 12 months to start growing. Body hair supposedly has different growth cycles. Beard hair is different, thicker and should be placed back behind the hair line.
  10. There was a Bisanga case posted recently on the forum and the results looked great (especially given the guys starting point - quite phenomenal really). I believe Keser doesnt like using beard hair etc citing it doesn't look completely natural, while the results I've seen from Lorenzo are pretty good insofar as they offer patients some kind of improvement and conceal any issues. Rare to see many examples of it though. Surgeons seem to have vastly different approaches to it. Given fin has an effect on body hair I wonder if doctors request patients to stop taking the drug? I'd also be curious to know if different body hair works better on different regions of the scalp Good thread idea @Melvin-Moderator
  11. I've had arm, leg, chest and beard and they do grow. Some of it took more than 12 months to start growing.
  12. I think the true goal of a hair transplant is not think about hair anymore ... sounds like you're already just enjoying it. Fucking win
  13. Anyone? lack of recent real life testimonials is really holding me back from considering this clinic despite the good reputation.
  14. Hi abhinay any overhead shots and immediately post op pictures to see graft placement? indian hair is the best for achieving coverage. Great job
  15. I’ve never had it but I think the consensus among doctors that perform it is that beard hair works the best out of all body hair.
  16. you could also use some light non liquid make up on red areas for a little while until your native hair grows out to cover it .. Get on MSM , vitamin B, Biotin etc to speed up hair growth ... Make sure to wash make up off each night and only use it when needed, office etc.
  17. Thanks . Waiting for that day @Bill - Seemiller @Melvin-Moderator @Lennney Waiting for your comments guys
  18. Thanks for the advice . However Dr Bhatti suggests that minoxidil for 6 months post op is sufficient.I will be using for 7 months . the only problem with it is that the wetness look already thin hair , balding .
  19. Very kind. Thank you I only hope that others receive the same satisfaction from their procedures as I have from mine. For years my daily routine consisted of literally spray painting my scalp with root concealer and then adding hair fibers all to create the illusion of a full head of hair. And I would constantly be concerned in rain, wind, or hot/humid conditions. To have all that behind me feels amazing.
  20. Interesting...I never thought of it as a method but that exactly how mine was done 4 years ago. I had 2 procedures. The only difference was on the first one he used a manual punch and implanter tool with premade slits. The second for some reason he switched to a motorized punch extraction. But it does look natural!
  21. This is not a before/after. This is simply a patient we performed a two day, 5000 FUE graft case last week. The reason I am presenting this is that this patient previously went to a local plastic surgeon who had just obtained an ARTAS machine, and is marketing heavily here in the Charleston, SC area. During his consultation with the ARTAS clinic, he indicated he wanted coverage both in the crown and frontal area, and was told by the consultant (not the plastic surgeon), that complete coverage could be obtained with 1500 grafts. Looking online afterwards, he realized this was an absurd quote, and ended up coming to us. The point is for prospective patients to do their research before (and after) a consultation because there is some inaccurate information being given out, and just because someone has a machine does not make them qualified to perform the procedure.
