  1. Hi, I sent one at the 5 month mark, will send this week and let you know their response...
  2. 6 month picture update... A little disappointed so far, the front still has a lot of gaps and the back hasnt improved much so far. Hopefully see improvement over the next few months.
  3. Hi yes you're right there isnt any scarring, the SMP would help enhance the look on the sides and back (donor areas) which have had a density decrease.. also theres some slight balding (not significant) behind the temporals which happened after the 1st transplant, I think as a direct result from the shock of hair being implanted around that area... Hopefully the SMP goes ahead in the next few weeks after lockdown so will post some pictures up here...
  4. Wondering if anyone has used scalp micropigmentation on the donor area? After 3 operations and using 5000 grafts I'm planning to have all the sides and back covered using SMP.. should be effective as I usually keep the sides back at grade 0.5 or 1..
  5. Hi, for 5 months it's good progress yes. Theres still gaps at the back as you can see from the picture but aware the crown takes longer to fill out. 2nd picture shows the gap on the hairline which I still cant comb up (looks bald) but the hairs are coming through and I'm hoping once they get thicker it will give a much better look. Top picture hair was combed down but the purpose of it was to show the side hair which was operated on.. I think it needs to be brought in more. Donor area is ok but seeing as I've used 5000 grafts you can see dots, I'm thinking of having scalp micropigmentation done to cover and make the sides look thicker
  6. Month 5 progress pictures below, still early days so I'm hoping theres more hair growth!
  7. A few reasons: Dr ciniks results looked great Unlimited grafts offer made it value for money- although this backfired since the estimate was 3000 grafts and I only ended up getting 2000 which worked out more expensive than Doganay Wasnt entirely happy with Doganays first surgery In hindsight...... Maybe I could have used a dr that does all the implants himself rather than his technicians for a better price elsewhere? Results will tell...
  8. Apologies wrote the reply in a rush, I've corrected the mistake I can provide you with a link to my previous post (for the 2 surgeries) not sure how to add it to this thread
  9. I've had 3500 added by hakan doganay over 2 ops (1st op results were poor) During this op I had 1500 added (for density).
  10. No pictures taken immediately after surgery only the next day... I guess because I opted not to shave my head it's difficult to see the difference between pre/post picture
  11. Hi in the first post I've separated pre/post surgery pictures. I will take some more pictures in better light tonight and post
  12. 4 Month results below, a little worried I havent seen much improvement at all!
  13. Previously had 2 surgeries from Dr Hakan Doganay total 3500 front hairline and 500 in the crown I contacted Dr Ciniks clinic and was recommended to have 1500 beard hairs transplanted in the crown and to use my remaining donor area to add density to the front (another 1500). Judging by the price (and unlimited graft) plus the drs reputation I went ahead and booked surgery for the 11th November 2019 opting for their most expensive package (DHI) Arriving late on the 10th November 2019 close to midnight I was a little annoyed that my surgery had been booked in for the early part of morning on the 11th (told last minute) but wasnt too fussed or stressed having been through 2 surgeries before. Arriving at around 8am to the clinic I had a short wait before going into a consultation with dr cinik. I was a little surprised that after being recommended 1500 grafts for the scalp based on pictures the Dr only recommended 500! And after trying to push him to increase the number of grafts added to the hairline he wouldnt budge and said it would ruin the outcome if too many were added. I disagreed having seen my previous results but took his advice. Just to add and this is an important point, apart from the consultation the dr wasnt involved in my surgery at all (make of that what you like). Before and after pictures below: After surgery pictures taken the next day below
  14. Thank you for the advice steve, that really is good advice and I didnt look at it from that angle.. I think it might just be the width of the forehead that makes it looks so big and redesigning the temples would help frame the face. I dont think the first design in my first operation was great but dr erdogan simply went over the smp I had done rather than designing his own hairline. I'm seeing someone on friday to get some advice and will speak to a few other consultants before making a decision.
  15. Hey, so what advice would you give to get the hairline back to how it was before and to reduce the forehead size? Maybe just work to shape the temples?
