  1. I'm starting to get my shed too dude! Just keep it shaved short, I think it looks better that way because people just assume you've done the "fuck it, I'm shaving my head thing" without really noticing much hair loss hah - post some update pics too!
  2. Pictures from April 13th - 17th attached. Here is what I'm also doing to try and maximize my results: Hair Routine: -1mg Finasteride daily (If you're worried about this drug, I've been using it off and on (due to supply) for about 5 years and have always seen amazing results using it with no side effects. I've read people's testimonies about this drug, and I personally think people just drive themselves insane and blame this drug for the problems in their lives. You'll read things like, "Finasteride made me depressed!" No, I think you were already depressed for other reasons [maybe the
  3. Hey everyone, Here's an update with pictures from the first few days following my 2500 graft FUE procedure. I'll try to make these compilations as high resolution as this website offers, so feel free to zoom in with the magnification button. These were taking after my flight back from Istanbul to LA, and as you can see, my head was still very red and scabby. I knew the airport security would look at my head in a "what the hell happened" way when I had to remove my cap while going through security, but I decided not to care about what they thought. Turns out they didn't care at all - h
  4. Looks good Spring! We got ours done about 1 week apart from the same doc, so it'll be interesting to see your progress!
  5. Good luck with it! It's also nice to see that you have zero pigmentation issues... I'm only 6 days post OP and really hoping that all my redness dissipates quickly and looks like your hairline.
  6. Looks fucking great Gatsu! And just to throw out an honest opinion, I think your temples look fine a little receded, especially since it draws attention to your strong hairline. I see a lot of guys shave the sides of their heads anyways and keep it long on top. I get why you'd want to do do it, but I think it looks good on you!
  7. Hey good luck friend! I know they didn't have a lot of open spots left in April... that's why I booked as soon as they had an opening on April 4th. I talked with Ozlem through this email address: info@emrahcinik.com Hope that helps!
  8. Yeah after that first bump on my head, I was *EXTRA* careful not to do it again. And yeah I was being a little baby about the injections lol. Knew it was gonna hurt, but it was just more pain than I thought it'd be so thought mention it
  9. They wanted to pack as much as they could up on the frontal hairline and temple area, and then use whatever they had left of the 2500 on the crown. He said I didn't really need any on the crown as I already have decent coverage there (look at pre-op long hair pictures), but I told him to use whatever he had left on the crown. I agree the grafts look spares, but they're surrounded by my natural hair there anyways. And as far as the the 6 operations a day, all I can say is you pay for the time you get with the doctor.. In the USA, yes you could book a doctor for the whole day at $12k-$20k pl
  10. Okay so I'll talk a little about the operation in this section. After I decided on Dr. Cinik, I worked with a wonderful woman named Ozlem. She helped me through all the finer details about my trip. We set a date for April 4th, I used skyscanner to find plane tickets that cost me $930 instead of the typical $1,500-$2,000 I would have paid for tickets on such short notice. Bought them March 22nd for a April 2nd flight :eek: Skyscanner for flights is awesome if your dates are flexible btw. 13 hour flight to Moscow from LA, 7 hour layover, and a 4 hour flight to Istanbul. That much traveling S
  11. Hello everyone! I'm from Los Angeles California, 36 years old, and just traveled to Istanbul Turkey for a FUE 2,500 grafts operation with Dr. Emrah Cinik and his amazing team. I'm sharing my story because I feel like I might save some nice people just looking for help a SHIT ton of money. SIDE NOTE: Dr. Cinik and his team don't know I'm writing this. I just remember how I felt a few months ago... clueless - but I had finally decided I wanted to go under the knife. I had no idea who to choose. If you're looking to get a HT, hopefully my story will help. In southern California. FUE
  12. I'll second Spring15, I just got back from visiting Dr Cinik - it's the real deal. I'm writing up my experience about it now. Saved myself about $10k by flying to Istanbul and have a feeling my results are going to be just as good as if I did the procedure in the US.
  13. I decided on Dr. Emrah Cinik from Istanbul. I'm writing up my experience now with pictures if you wanna check it out! Good luck.
