  1. 1. Ever heard of glasshouse and stones? No there isn't. In this very forum there is maybe one case, which comes close (aftermath' case). Show me 5 cases in this forum were natural density is achieved. Not 5 cases which look like natural density (cause this is the illusion), but real natural density between 70-110 FUE/cm2. 2. & 3. Fun fact, obviously you need the reading glasses, as I gave more than "every case is different": HGI, hair diameter, … do I really need to list it again cause your start barking before you finish to read the end of the paragraph?

  2. That's totally normal, it's only an estimate unless one doctor estimated 2000 grafts and another 4000 then you should be asking questions otherwise 1500-2000 is completely fine

  3. From what I understand, the frequency and the needle size are inversely proportional. The bigger the needle, the less frequently you can have the treatment and viceversa. How big is your needle? (I think it sounds like a strange question...at least in Italian it sounds like a strange question!)

  4. Yes you do have more of a Ludwig pattern as does your Grandmother. Young and therefore medication is probably the best advice. The donor doesn't look the strongest but that said wet and long hair also sticking together can give a false impression so have it assessed dry and have real empirical data on density and not just subjective opinion, but real actual data from accurate readings. Don't rush into surgery but look into medication is the honest opinion because at your age things could develop a lot if not on medication so best not to commit to surgery yet and see firstly how you

  10. Agree with @Abi28 1500-2000 grafts isnt actually all that big a variable when coming to an estimate, especially if you are sending online photos. This basic estimate might even change compared from the photos you sent to say if you were actually to see the doc in person; being that things like hair quality (finer hair requires more grafts to achieve an illusion of fullness, coarser hair requires less) the health of your donor, and what your actually goals are all need to be taken into consideration. A basic rule of thumb is that for every 1cm you will need about 1000 grafts, so im gu

  11. Paddy recommended Aloe Vera and it really helps me with the itching and soothing my HT area.

  12. This is a classic Result of HDC Hair Clinic, for frontal coverage with 3000 grafts. Also, it is a classic case that the extraction is distributed evenly of the donor with minimal scaring with Natural looking hairline with correct height and design. Sometimes patients wonder why to pay more than low cost clinics. Well, they pay for the experience of the doctors in designing correctly where to place the grafts, for a natural look now and the future. They also pay for the correct direction and pattern of the placed grafts. They pay for not destroying their donor. They also pay for havin

  13. True & Dorin in NY do not shave the recipient area. There are several others as well.

  14. If the clinic does a small and a midlevel case in one day instead of a big one; it is no issue. Example: My first surgery was over just after lunch time. I do not expect the clinic to shut down for the remainder inder of the day. But 2 big surgeries in parallel is not sth. I would like.

  15. The angulation of recipient grafts and cleanliness of the work is top notch. Thanks for updating as im especially interested in seeing this. There’s a lot of folks bashing Turkey for pricing vs quality and i get there may be some clinics in question. BUT to have a doctor focus on you, work with you solely, cater to you, manually extract, do limited extractions to help maximize yield, and not break the bank, is very envious. Truly can’t wait to see this result and how is Dr Kaan Pekiner’s patient follow up care? Are they following up with you? Are they about complete patient satisfact

  20. Doc, some of your colleagues say that we should avoid training for 1 month because we need the blood goes to the scalp and not to muscles..but it doesn't make any sense to me. anyway, hair scalp should not involved in venous/artetious blood flow. Microcirculation works into a complexity different pathway so, brining blood to muscle should not reduce blood supply to hair follicles. What is your opinion?

  22. The difference between the top surgeons is usually their artistry and philosophy of hair transplants and hairline design. One may like to do more aggressive, low hairlines and another may usually do higher hairlines. One may like to create new temple points and another may prefer to leave the temple points alone unless they are very receded. One may prefer to go for more density and another may prefer to give you a bit lower density in order to conserve more for the future, etc, etc. Let's assume you have done a lot of research and picked out 3 to 5 top surgeons who all have great

  23. I just wanted to take time to say thank you to everyone who comes on this forum to share their genuine experience for the collective wisdom and good of our community. The industry is changing rapidly, and a lot of guys out there are getting most of their "research" through social media ad-campaigns instead of learning from other patients. We have big plans this year, and we hope to continuously grow and cultivate this community, as we build trust through transparency. We remain one of the last places online to really host the good, the bad, and the ugly. It saddens me to say this, but it
