  1. Hi guys, Firstly I am not one to normally contribute to forums like this, but as a few of these forums were an invaluable source of information to me that helped me make my decision regarding my hair transplant procedure I think I owe it to ‘give something back’ and write about my experience, which may in turn help anyone in making their decision down the line. A little about me… Im 33 years old and from the UK and have suffered with hair loss from a very young age. I have naturally thin hair anyway, and noticed in my late teens that my hairline was startin

  2. @yalla8 the general opinion of HRN members is to completely disregard and ignore any YouTube, Facebook, Instagram or any other results posted on social media. Same for any reviews posted on yelp or anywhere other reviews website. When choosing a Doctor you have to come to forums like HRN and see results from real patients, those are the ones that start a results thread from the day of their surgery until the end of the 12 month growth cycle (many clinic reps come here and create a new thread with just a before and after picture and then falsely claim to be a patient). If you are on a

  3. I hear you, and I would caution you from this point. Stick with getting medical advice and any monitoring/evaluation from your actual doctor(s), get a second opinion. The internet, even some of its better parts like this forum, are not the place you want to be looking for worse case scenarios, things that can go wrong, scary anecdotes. You'll find them everywhere, some true and some not, and they will have you freaked out and changing your mind every time you turn around.

  4. I double that, pics aren't that great looking, work looks unnatural, but I think it will look natural in the donor region to give some density or cover some scars or overall shaved head but definitely not on the top of the head if the person has very little hair and he wants to keep the hair long.

  5. Had mine done June 23rd. took a few hundred, Sorry I can't remember the exact amount, from Jaw line down. Was shaving 10 days after, Can't really see a difference. Few weeks of pimples which have all gone. My chest however still looks like a warzone as they take large cores when taking those hairs

  7. Can you in an honest opinion tell how close ur hair is now compared to ur original hair?Since you have one of the best hair transplants , I just wanted to know how good you think are your hair now? Are the angles similar to what you had originally and is the overall illusion similar? In an earlier post also,I requested you to post ur pic with original hair vs now after hair transplant. Just wanted to understand how far can I reach with ht.looking forward to ur reply.

  8. I think you've another 3 months of potential pop through growth and a further 2 to 6 months of full thickness and maturing to look forward to. You're decision to restart finasteride was a very prudent one and perhaps equally as important as having the HT itself. Didnt realise Dr Pekinar was so efficient in the use of BHT to be honest. Thanks for the clear transparent pictures too.. Happy growing in the coming months Z

  9. To me it looks really really good. Don't forget where are you coming from! Also worth mentioning that beard grafts are more "unpredictable" than scalp. Their growth phases might be very different from scalp hair, thus needed more time?

  10. I think it looks good considering your level of baldness. The new hair looks still very thin and weak. This will improve in the future. But FIN is really helpful in your case as your donor zones is very small and probably also affected by DHT. Growth happens in spurts, I think you have a little more growth and a lot of maturation to expect.

  12. Well, not if they are like 3 days post-op with a shaved head and FUE scabs. But I would venture to guess that almost half of Hollywood has gotten an HT. I spot 'em regularly. And if they aren't HT's, they are wearing systems.

  14. Your # grafts, method, lifestyle, diet and work hours are so similar to my story! I'm about 3 weeks post op myself. Can't wait to see how yours turns out mate! I feel like diet through this period is so important to recovery.

  15. The curls are likely related to thinner hair in the area and balding areas behind it which under normal circumstances would support these hair and add to density. On thinning head, hair grown too long or cut too short won't look good, you have to find that in-between sweet spot. Typically having sides and back cut short makes thinning areas on the top look better...not always but in most cases. Good luck!

  17. Hello,In 2017 I have had a bad FUE in Turkey. The hairline was too low and too hard (due to use of double/triple grafts in the front line),the density was not good and the grafts were implanted in a wrong direction. Furthermore I had pitting, so all together, one word: HORRIBLE.In 2019 I contacted Dr Feriduni and he proposed a two step approach:1. Extraction of the too low implanted grafts (with re-use) to make the hair line higher (in two steps), including extraction of the grafts with wrong impantation angle (600grafts)2. Reconstruction of the new hairline and create more density (+/- 1000 g

  18. Absolutely. His career was terrific without the procedure as well. Lets just say that the procedure gave him satisfaction and more confidence. It was something he wanted and felt the requirement to get it done. Hair transplant is an elective surgery and it is something that people choose to get done for more than just physical appearance. It gives people confidence, happiness amd satisfaction. Sometimes people with no hair at all couldn't bother less about hair transplant. And sometimes people with a full head of hair are extremely worried about it. Do what makes you happy is the mantra

  19. Happy growing! It looks like they did a good job of dispersing the grafts and covering the front third. Will you post the donor area update?

  20. @Tjphelps I use the same phrases because there’s seem to be more and more people posting about low cost all inclusive surgeries and my warning will always be the same. If you are looking for a budget Doctor you should consider Demirsoy (1.25€/graft) or spend a bit more with Dr. Arika (1.8)/graft) for a highly skilled technique. If you are looking for all inclusive low cost then instead of having unknown technicians performing your surgery at Cinik (or any other low cost clinic) go with the nurses Esma&Serkan Tetik because they have dozens of real patients on the Turkish forum with

  21. Hello, well this will fade away little by little and the doctor told me after 6mounths we could do a laser to make the skin look better. I think this will be ok, but I have to wait now to see how it goes. In fact I prefer the scars and have a natural hair look. Do you have experience with graft removal and scarring?

  22. To answer yours and tressful11's question, as you can see from the photos there is no noticeable scarring in my opinion, Im pretty amazed by how it turned out in that regard. If you shine a light on it and look at the forehead at within extremely close range in the mirror, there are a couple of pits but these are really not noticeable and could very easily just be put down to very slight natural imperfection in the skin.

  23. I am not sure how many grafts were removed as I am not entirely sure how many grafts I had in my first procedure. I was naive and not as clued up when I had my first procedure done back in the early 2000's. If I recall correctly the Dr managed to re-use near a thousand grafts when combining the old hairline and the scar repair. If you are interested, I would strongly recommend getting a consultation, Dr Feriduni was meticulous in my experience and was honest regarding expectations etc.

  26. What is the point of having a consultation and then booking the hair transplant for 3 or 4 years in the future? By the time your surgery date comes the original consultation would be useless. Any plan that was made, amount of grafts you need, etc may all change by then. Heck, even the price can change over 3 to 4 years time. What good is that? I went from NW 3 to NW 6 in less time there is between his consultation and surgery dates. If you were at the point of being ready to do something about your hair loss.... nope, sorry... you have to wait 4 years. That doesn't make any sense. I don't know

  28. @HLPToronto Most bodybuilders go bald because they inject inhumanly amounts of testosterone and other exogenous hormones in to their body. There’s literally only a few bodybuilders that even have any hair left. Jay Cutler, Dennis Wolf and Dorian Yates. The rest bald as eagles.
