  1. No. Having second thoughts. I don’t know if I’m going to go through with the procedure.
  2. Thanks for all the responses. I'm certainly not very knowledgeable, but from my limited research they say that you should only harvest from a specific area from the back of your head. If you go beyond, the hairs are weaker and have a lessor chance of survival.So to harvest large amounts of grafts FUT is the better approach. I don't believe you can harvest 5500 grafts by FUE and stay within the recommended donor region.
  3. I'm deciding if it's worth the risk traveling to Turkey to have HT. I had a consultation with Bosley in NY. We discussed both procedures that they offered FUE/FUT , also stating the limitations of both by Bosley standards ( 2,200 grafts for FUE and 3,400 for FUT) . The consultant said that I have good donor hair and that I would require 3,000 grafts . I attached a photo showing my hair. That being said the FUT was the best viable solution, I agreed since I didn't want to have my head shaved. That evening I started researching all options currently available, thats when I read about DHI. Most of the posts were coming from sites in Turkey. Qunomedical stuck out, so I contacted them. We discussed various Dr's, their first recommendation was Dr. Cinik. after further discussions I decided that I wanted a Dr. to perform the procedure, not technicians and that I preferred not to have my head shaved. I sent them pics they needed to determine " my free personalized treatment plan and quote ". They sent me a proposal from the Istanbul Aesthetic center, that Dr. Baris Erturk will perform the procedure, claiming that I need 3,100 grafts which can be done without shaving my head by manual DHI. Sounds great, right!! No, there are many different takes on DHI some say max amount of grafts per session 1500-2000, others say patients should be under 40 years of age, by the way I'm over 60. other say that you can't harvest more than 1000 grafts from an area that's not shaved. On top of which I can't find any reviews positive or negative on Dr. Baris Erturk. I'm totally frustrated and confused. I travel to Europe frequently so going to Turkey isn't a big deal and $ saved is substantial. I'm trying to grasp what to believe, which method is right for me and who to trust doing the surgery. I need Help!
