  1. Sorry been very busy. Hairs are very crinkled and density isn't what I wanted. It was only 1500 graphs. Let me know what you think and where should I go from here.
  2. Hey sorry I haven't gotten into a lot of detail. Im waiting for the final result to write a full review. At AEK clinic, Dr Ali Emre Karadeniz's system is that you send him pictures and then he gives you a rough estimate of the hairs/graphs you will need. Mine was 2000 graphs/5000 hairs. Afterwards, you fly to Turkey and he has a closer look at your head. He will then start the surgery and make whatever graphs is necessary to cover the area you requested. He charges a flat fee regardless of how many hairs/graphs he does in the surgery. There was no real consultation period. He asks you
  3. Hey, I will post some post op pics asap. My doctor is at a hair Congress at the moment and won't be able to send me pictures until a week's time. I personally have some on my phone but they are bad quality.
  4. Pictures below I apologize if im not posting this stuff in the correct section of this forum. Let me know if i should start a different thread.
  5. I hope you are right HTsoon. I was looking through old pictures and came across a picture of my hair about 1.5 weeks after surgery. Under anyone's experience can you tell if this will achieve sufficient density to blend in with my native hair? To me it looks like 50% of the native hair. I cannot tell you how many 1s, 2s, 3s etc hairs I got. The doctor wouldn't tell me exactly how many grafts he was putting in.
  6. I've been stressing myself out the past couple days. I really appreciate the support the community has given me so far. My biggest worry at the moment is the lack of great photos by Dr. K. It's like no one after the surgery wants to show off their look like most people do here. Judging by the photos I've looked at is that Dr K struggles to get density. I apologize for being a downer even after all the great advice. I will try to be patient and wait for the final result.
  7. Thanks HG1, im really glad i posted because your comments are making me feel better. This is the thread that made me worried. I hope mosd has a good update soon. Also, I forgot to note, my procedure was done with FUT. http://www.hairrestorationnetwork.com/eve/182291-3800-grafts-fut-dr-ali-karadeniz.html
  8. Hey thanks a lot, Buzzbee. That makes me feel better. I'm not feeling great about it because there is a thread here about the same doctor and the same kind of growth at my stage. However, as the months went on, he didn't see much improvement and he had to go back and get a "top off" which he ultimately still wasn't happy with. Im at work so I will post the thread later.
  9. Thanks for clarifying that Spanker, I'm pretty stressed about the situation.
  10. Hey John thanks for the reply, dr Ali Karadeniz quoted 2000 graphs roughly on the frontal area of my head. This surgery was performed in turkey and not in my country. So I can only communicate through messaging. I have sent these pictures to him and his staff have said to wait until the 6th month mark.
  11. I never post but i hope you all can have a look at my transplant and tell me what you think. I had my surgery on the 26th of december with dr. Ali Karadeniz. These pictures are from today 21st April 2018. Almost 5 months now. I have seen much more growth than this at 5 months from other before and afters.
