Your results look very promising! I think in a few months you'll have great hair. I wish you the best of luck. I see you're pleased overall with your experience. How did the clinic seem? Some people complain that these clinics are like factories turning out patients as fast as possible, and that you barely talk with the doctor. Did your experience feel like that?
Hi, I also got my HT with Dr.Cinik. I paid for the second option which includes him opening the channels. I always thought that it'd be better if the Dr. makes it because his name is on it, instead of a technician who can have a bad day and nothing to lose if he/she doesn't perform it in a good way.
You made the first step, so good luck!, after a year or so, you'll be a totally different looking person
Hi Luke. Thanks so much for your detailed and honest review. It's helped me select my clinic, and therefore by extension help me turn my life around. I've recently contacted a few clinics including Dr. Cinik. I asked Cinik's office if he performs any part of the procedure for the basic package and they said he doesn't. But you seemed to say you paid for the basic package and that he performed different parts of yours. Do you know why this was the case?
My full post is here. Thanks and congratulations on your amazing results. Your hair looks fantastic.
My fellow warriors in the battle against balding,
I've decided to take the plunge and get a hair transplant! I'm going to be in Europe this summer anyway, so now's the time. I'm a 25 year-old Norwood 2.5. I have a naturally large forehead and a widow's peak, so my hair loss is especially pronounced. After I started balding I went from having fair success in the dating field to struggling. It's done a number on my self-esteem. So,
this is much-needed.
For my budget I have to go to Turkey (or Hungary, but I don't see many reviews about Hungarian clinics here). It looks like Cosmedica, Clinica, and Dr. Cinik are the more reputable budget clinics. Cinik seems to be the least mill-like and have the happiest legitimate reviews. I contacted all of them and have some questions:
My experience communicating with the clinics hasn't been anything like what the others are saying. The whatsapp conversations seem pushy and blunt as opposed to the pleasant conversations others have reported. Is this how they start out until you commit to one or am I getting a bad bunch? Or should I be using a different method of communication?
Cinik's assistant (Sera) said that for the "standard" package, Cinik doesn't open the channels. But there are reviews on here from people who seemed to pay for the standard packages that say Dr. Cinik performed some parts of their procedure. Especially this great review from lukeyb1687.
Both Cinik and Cosmedica said 2000-2500 grafts seems appropriate. Would more yield greater density or a lower hairline? One said I can come back again, but I know these clinics do 3500+ grafts in one procedure, so the number isn't the problem. I just don't want to be stuck looking thin and pluggy or still have a massive forehead when I don't need to.
Are there other clinics in the 2500 euro range that are equally reputable? Maybe even one with more doctor involvement?
This is my first post on the forums so I hope I've followed all the rules. Cheers guys.
