  1. Hi everyone, I'm Carlo from the UK, and after recently hitting the 6-month mark after my surgery with Dr Resul Yaman in Istanbul Turkey, thought I would finally document my experience so far. Don't want to write too much here, as I've noticed that these forums often repeat themselves quite a bit, especially when most clinics in Turkey generally all offer the same all-inclusive packages, albeit differ in terms of quality and price. Ultimately I chose this doctor as I was really impressed over the amount of consistent amazing results, and from all the clinics I spoke to, this one offered me the most amount of grafts and said they could achieve full coverage in one session, as opposed to two sessions required by most of the other clinics I spoke with. The fact that this doctor had two major accreditations and over ten years experience and was very reasonably priced compared to other doctors with the same level of experience, thought this really was a no brainer. However, there are a few main points that I'd like to make, which are: 1) Before taking the plunge, I done my research for nearly two years, so was more than confident with my choice. 2) Communication with the clinic was great at all times 3) The doctor and staff were incredibly friendly and very down to earth 4) The surgery itself went smoother than expected, with no issues whatsoever 5) All necessary aftercare/support was provided and the clinic are still available even to this day whenever I need to reach out 6) In terms of honesty, when the doctor assessed my donor area he said that due to it being better than he was able to initially make out from the photos that I had sent across from the UK, was able to perform 800 more grafts that initially quoted, at no extra cost. For me this was complete honesty, as I would have been non the wiser of how many grafts I needed as I am no doctor, and the fact they didn't ask for more money shows that the clinic were more concerned about getting the most from the surgery than making money. For me, this only confirmed that I had definitely made the right choice with a clinic I could trust. Overall, I had a fantastic experience with this clinic and would highly recommend, and based on my research found this clinic to be the most consistent than any other in Turkey. I will now leave you with some of my before and after photos, as I believe that's what people really want to see. For further guidance, please visit my website where I'm currently helping others choose the right clinic and saving them months of research - thehairtransplantspecialist.com Best wishes, Carlo Before surgery: Immediately after: 2 weeks after surgery: 1 month after surgery: 3 months after surgery: 6 months after surgery:
  2. People saying that this doctor can't be recommended due to techs doing most of the work What about Dr. Koray Erdogan 'one of the best FUE doctors in the world' who uses techs also? Just saying
  3. Hello mate, Great look! Considering this surgeon myself Can I asked how much you paid please? Kind Regards
  4. Thought I would upload 3.. So as you can see, very similar to the unsatisfactory results posted on here. N.B. all photos taken direct from Asmed website. Matthew
  5. Hi again everyone, After much thought and researching further into the work of Dr Erdogan at Asmed Clinic, I thought it was only right to create this new topic. So my original post yesterday (below) titled 'Alternative to Dr Koray Erdogan at Asmed Clinic in Turkey?' was written in response to all the negative reviews that I had came across on here - something I had never came across in the past year of researching his work. However, after further inspection all of yesterday and throughout the night, thought it was only fair that I share what I found. Several reviews on here are saying how 'pluggy' their HTs are from Asmed, and although I do agree, must say that these results are no different to the work that Dr Erdogan and his team have performed for many years, or at least that's how I see it. I urge people to look at results on google and his own website, where you will see for yourselves similar results. I was going to take a few screenshots, but thought I would just let people go away and see for themselves. I guess the conclusion of all of this, is that his results (both current and past) are not perfect, but this is rarely the case with any surgeon and that his results are pretty good nonetheless, with some outstanding. For this reason I would like to retract my original post below and proceed with Dr Erdogan as originally planned with the confidence that I will be satisfied with his work. So please do take a look at his past results and let me know what you think and hopefully you will agree that Dr Erdogan's work is no better or no worse than it has been over the years and therefore feel it is unfair to wrongly suggest this. Many thanks, Matthew
  6. Thanks for this, will certainly continue to do my research. Why can't Erdogan just be good again, so my mind can just be made up ha!
  7. Hello everyone, Hope you can help - so after a year of doing my research on FUE procedures in Turkey was almost certain that I was going to go with Dr Koray Erdogan at Asmed Clinic. However, due to recent reviews on this clinic am now no longer convinced. Not really sure what's happened here, as I once struggled to find any bad reviews on this clinic up until recently. My guess would be that due to the growing popularity in this clinic, that they have now dropped their standards, which is a real shame. Anyway I am now back at square one, and am looking for recommendations of who are the top surgeons are in Turkey with consistent results, just like the results of Dr Koray used to be. And I only hope that Dr Koray is reading all the negative reviews out there (including this), with the view of bringing back that gold standard that we all once knew. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Kind Regards, Matthew (UK)
