  1. I stand corrected. Missed the 3 months result. Usually docs present somewhat finished or close to finished result.
  2. I don't know, I would expect more from 3500+ grafts.
  3. Actually, to the bolded......from my research you don't even need to complete residency of any kind to be an HT doctor. All you need is a perseptorship with a HT doc and you are good to go. It actually sounds little scary to me.
  4. @Kraistoff you seem pretty much on track. The fun has just begun. I wish you fast growing.
  5. Hello fortuneplant, Since my touch up was a long hair FUE, there was no downtime at all for me. It was very easy to hide it in public because I had existing hair. I'm not sure how long the redness lingered this time because I really never paid attention to it. I could barely see it. I took a week off from work for my touch up. Left on Saturday and came back on Friday night and went back to work the following Monday. Nobody could tell anything was done. Look at the pictures above on my Day 1 and Day 7. You can't even tell I had a touch up.
  6. The fact is I LOVE MY RESULT. All people around me have no clue about my HT and compliment me all the time "you are lucky for having a full head of hair". It did set me back a little but my touch up was a long hair FUE, so there was no set back really. I just went on with my day, my existing hair covered the touch up work just fine. So I didn't have to go through the ugly duckling stage second time around. People who do know I had HT done, inspected my hair and still cant believe how good it is. Also, as far is straight hairlines. Dr. Koray actually pointed out to me that my hairline should be a V or a U shaped because I am Caucasian. I wanted a little rounder/straighter hairline. And Dr. Koray was right on the money. When my hair grew out I can see why he said I don't need a straight/round hairline. My hairline looks very natural. I get it, you are upset with your result, that's understandable but you seem to have an agenda about bad mouthing ASMED in almost every thread about them. Just move on, find a doctor you are comfortable with. There are WAY MORE happy ASMED patients then a couple of unsatisfied ones. Good luck to you.
  7. I really don't know why people are freaking out. I'm the one who was supposed to freak out after developing a necrosis after my first HT (4100+ grafts) with ASMED (mostly my fault). I went back for a touch up for 600+ grafts and now almost at 6 months, I can tell that I LOVE my hairline and my HT overall, and I'm not even done yet. Everyday I feel my hair is getting thicker and more dense. Nobody could tell I had anything done and all I get is compliments. People who DO know I've had it done still can't believe how great it looks. Some people should never get HT, they are emotionally not equipped for it. Let me try to get it through your head. YOU WILL NEVER HAVE THE SAME DENSITY as your original hair. The girl who cuts my hair still can't believe how good my hair is. She's now thinking having her husband getting HT done. And all she said was: if he ever gets it done, I want YOUR doctor to do it for him. I told her to do research and find a doctor that is suitable for HIM. But she is very adamant because I've known her for 15+ years.
  8. I got a haircut last night. This is from 5 min ago. I'm only little under 6 months. so the growth is still coming and I feel many prickly hairs in the hairline.
  9. It's been almost 6 months since my touch up procedure and I'm loving my results so far. 3 pictures were taken with my phone under bright spot lights yesterday. Last picture is where I started from. I can't believe how far I've come. I feel my hair is getting thicker each day/week. THANK YOU ASMED.
  10. There are many reasons for necrosis. Smoking is one of them and that's what likely caused it in my situation. But they did take care of me. I'm a happy camper. I'm not trying to convince you but since you are expressing your dissatisfaction, I'm offering an opposite experience. I've looked at your thread where you asked to repair your "straight" hairline. I really think you look quiet good, truly. Maybe some people just have different expectations. You look like you have a head of hair of a 20 yr old, really.
  11. Not at all. Mostly was my fault. But I really think there is no point in convincing you. You've made up your mind. We get it, you are not happy with your result but you just sound like you are on a crusade to tarnish ASMED. I hope you can get your situation fixed to your satisfaction. EDIT: Gasthoerer beat me to it.
  12. No, I developed it after my first HT. Things like necrosis are very rare but they do happen. I've had both HT's at ASMED. Dr. Erdogan really took care of me. I can't say enough good things about ASMED.
  13. How can anyone say Dr. Erdogan been a poor standard? I'm a patient who developed a necrosis after my first HT. I since then had a small touch (unshaven FUE) up with Dr. Erdogan and I could not be happier. It's been 5 months since my touch up and my hair looks great. People who know I've had an HT still cannot believe how natural it looks. I've seen 2 people who don't like their result: HT0416 and Payam. Payam still has time to see a full result. Other people who voiced their dissatisfaction are the ones who either don't show pictures or show their picture in the worst possible way to minimize the result. P.S. I will update this community with my 6 months results soon.
  14. I had my recipient area pink for about 4 months. It's normal.
  15. Specs that's hilarious. But the funniest comment I've ever had was from a couple of friends who knew I had a HT. After looking at it, they said: you look AWESOME. Does it feel like REAL HAIR? I spat out my drink when I heard that haha.
