  1. As I said my need to write here came from patients scared of the fact that that the clinic wasn't provided with the basic pharmaceuticals in case of emergencies (specifically anaphylactic shock). The false conjecture needed a reply. I knew I would be strongly attacked but still I couldn't let this false information stay here and damage clinic reputation. I am sorry for the tablet not being available but still it is not a pharmaceutical needed in case of anaphylactic shock. -- More in general my only interest is to clarify that the clinic has got all the medicines needed in case of an
  2. So what, am I not entitled to talk or to explain what happened and why the accusation has no basis? Or do you think I wrote without asking about the issue to dr. Pekiner? The reference is pretty clear since he only had graft extractions with dr. Pekiner and I was sent here by a patient worried about the clinic not having basic medical supply. So everything is pretty obvious for everyone, still in your opinion I should remain silent and let the wrong speculation being displayed forever without even answering. What's your next step, asking for my ban because I dared to give an explanation?
  3. Anaphylactic shock occurs in seconds, antihistaminic tablets start working in 25-30 minutes, they are not useful in case of anaphylactic shock, they are used for things like pollen allergy, then sneezing, runny nose, watery eyes, itchy throat etc. In order to better clarify this point: dr. Pekiner's clinic has got all the needed medicines for emergencies, mostly are injectable. Adrenaline and steroids are injected if there is a real allergic reaction, no tablet is given in these cases. Not all the kinds oral tablets (which are not life saving) are available at the clinic because
  4. Yes, and I already said the patient behaved bizarelly, specifically he didn't follow dr. Pekiner's orders about medications, despite saying he would. He changed version many times and then after some months he started to be interested just in blackening the clinic reputation. Now he is depicting himself in this forum as a poor Oliver Twist that was mistreated by the clinic but the truth is quite the opposite, and I think there is some interest behind this attacks. In addition his backup against the clinic is a member with only 2 messages written in this forum, all against the clinic. How
  5. The reality of the industry is not represented by the point of view of a patient at war with a clinic for some kind of revenge after an unsuccessful hair transplant, caused mainly by the patient's failure to follow doctor's orders.
  6. DUPA is not a particular illness or something that should be diagnosed with a biopsy, it is just androgenetic miniaturization diffusing into the donor, so that a variable percentage (20, 30, 50%..it depends on the case) of transplanted hair can suffer from miniaturization, just like hair on recipient, if the patients doesn't take Finasteride. That's why dr. Pekiner always underlined the importance of the therapy in this case: because without an anti DHT therapy, also transplanted hair (not all of them) will suffer from androgenetic driven thinning.
  7. 1.5 to 2. If I am not wrong in the past dr. Hasson was taking himself 2.5 mg per day and his ex advisor, Joe, had some improvements raising the dose. But please remember Finasteride is a pharmaceutical, a doctor must check the patient and prescribe the right dosage.
  8. Consider that many patients who submit the online consultation form are refused because of suspected DUPA, or are asked to enhance the therapy and then apply for a new evaluation in 6 months. In Lixin case the severity of the miniaturization in donor, back and sides, was unexpected.
  9. There are several studies for everything, some people quote studies showing 0.125 finasteride lower the DHT level in a similar way to 1 mg. Reality shows that in certain patients when 1 mg finasteride is not enough, raising the finasteride dose or adding Dutasteride 0.5 twice a week (replacing fina in those 2 days) can be effective.
  10. Hello, I spoke with dr. Pekiner about Lixin case. Unfortunately most of the grafts extracted from his donor showed at least 1 hair in initial miniaturization, if not more than one. There was almost no cluster of hairs in which all of them were healthy. This means androgenetic alopecia is unfortunately diffuse, diffusing and very aggressive in Lixin case. Even the restricted safe zone under the green line showed at least one hair in miniaturization in every extracted cluster. Dr. Pekiner verified that androgenetic driven thinning is ongoing in zones 6, 7, 8 and 9, they were not usable as d
  11. No, 3000 grafts are 3000 incisions, if you get 3000 grafts transplanted with a hair/graft ratio average of 2.5, you pay 3000 grafts, you get 3000 incisions (not considering some splitting that can occur) and 7500 hairs more or less. You will get a paper with this calculation. I agree Lixin maybe it is better if you open your own dicussion, maybe a moderator can take these messages and open your surgery thread.
  12. 0,9 mm 3 days no wash, just spray saline on the recipient area After 3 days, start washing only with water not directly poured on recipient. From day 7 gently wash with ph 5.5 delicate shampoo
  13. Future patients of our clinic know that in case something goes wrong about the regrowth, we offer a free touch up as it was offered to you. You showed concern in all the potential side effects of the medicines you were prescribed. Finasteride (depression after only 2 weeks of usage is inconsistent with the drug mechanism of action). In addition not only you just lasted 2 weeks taking Finasteride, you also stopped Minoxidil once and for good after you had been taking it for 6 months before surgery, losing all benefits you gained thanks to the medicine. You lamented side effects even from a
  14. 46 years old Italian patient, norwood 2.5, previous little FUE done in Italy in 1996 to place some hair on the temples. Receding hairline in the following years resulted in the transplanted grafts exposed as pluggy. The patient is taking Finasteride since 2016, Minoxidil once a day. Surgery performed on 29 and 30 november 2018. Partial shaving. Hair caliber medium/thick Surgery target was to restore a normal hairline with high density, matching the native hair one, repositioning or incorporating the old plugs and covering the old FUT scar with some transplanted hair. Single grafts
  15. Dredd, in your case medicines were mandatory because your androgenetic alopecia was miniaturizing also the donor area (it is a condition called DUPA and is more common than people think) and dr. Pekiner told you that many times. Not only you did not take Finasteride and Minoxidil as prescribed, you even started minoxidil on and off, that is worse than not taking it at all. You said you got Finasteride driven depression after 2 weeks of usage, which looks rather unlikely. You said you got side effects from Minoxidil and even from Xpecia that is a mild Saw Palmetto supplement. Dr. Pekiner
  16. 31 years old German patient with a familiar history of just frontal baldness without cases over Norwood 3/4 scale. Dr. Pekiner examined his hair and found no signs of miniaturization on mid, crown and sides; for this reason he was allowed not to take any medication except some supplements. Surgery target was to restore a juvenile and dense hairline. Treated area: 31 cm2 + connection zones Single grafts: 234 doubles: 932 (1864) triples: 916 (2748) multiples: 223 (892) Total of grafts: 2305 Total of hair : 5738 Hair/graft ratio: 2.5 Implantation
  17. It doesn't look probable, this case was treated at a density of 50 grafts per cm2 as average; dense but a not super dense pack like 60 or more needed for Norwood 1 to 3 with high native density and tiny grafts and hair caliber.
  18. Dr. Pekiner started his career in the hair transplant world at dr. Keser's clinic, that is a fact. Many patients ask where he was formed and where he learned the manual FUE techinque. Stating the truth is not a promotional use of his experience at Keser's clinic, we only wrote this in his private curriclum vitae and it is specified he did not perform surgeries at Keser's, while he did at HLC later. Dr. Keser is not mentioned everywhere else except in this brief CV of dr. Pekiner, for what reason we should omit where he trained and worked before?
  19. Hello everybody, my name is Alex, I am the Italian advisor of dr. Pekiner Hair Clinic, I also take care of English-speaking patients. I am in the hair transplant world since 2003, beginning in an old Italian forum, then in 2006 I started to post in an American one (under the name Starscream). I underwent a hairline HT surgery with dr. Keser in 2016; then I got in touch with dr. Pekiner who was opening his new clinic and I became his advisor. I had a final hairline touch up and beard surgery with him in 2018, I will share my experiences in this forum soon. Coming to the point of this
  20. Hello guys, I am doctor Pekiner Italian advisor. I am also English speaking. I can confirm that doctor Pekiner worked for 1 year in Keser's clinic as assistant doctor and then for 7 years at HLC as surgeon. He always perfomed full manual FUE surgeries in his career. He opened his own clinic in 2017. For any information please write to me at About me: I was norwood 2, going to 3. I stopped all with Finasteride, i take it since more than 10 years. I had a dense pack hairline restoration with dr. Keser in 2016 (1400 grafts). Now i am going to do a touch up with dr. Pekiner in june 2018. I am
