  1. Is your budget $8,000? If so, I would do it here in the US. You'll have to spend money on substantial airfare, hotel, and uncertainty with Turkey. There are many great docs that are recommended. I can personally vouch for @Dr Blake Bloxham. Give his office a ring or just PM him on here.
  2. Where are you? Have you gotten any consultation(s)? How many grafts do you want? Would you consider FUT?
  3. Great post @Melvin-Moderator Perhaps have a pinned thread of unscrupulous clinics? This forum is a vital tool for patient safety. A pinned thread will be easy to access and can be updated, etc.
  4. Looks like shock loss to me. I wouldn't worry until about 6-9 months post procedure
  5. I've seen patients who have undergone FUT without a visible scar after some time and seen FUE patients with visible scars over time. It depends a lot on the skill of the surgeon and as LaserCap said, the size of the punch being used. Here's a great example of a basically scarless FUT done by @Dr Blake Bloxham, who is highly recommended on here:
  6. Can someone please let me know how to put a signature on the bottom of the posts? I've tried, but haven't had any luck. Thanks!
  7. I would recommend that you get off the oral finasteride and take topical finasteride. Don't take more doses than recommended
  8. Sebum is naturally produced by sebaceous glands, which are part of the hair follicle. I don't think you have anything to worry about at this point. I know it's hard being patient, but hang in there. You should be seeing results in about 9 months
  9. Research into the efficacy of topical finasteride is in its infancy. However, it appears that it is indeed efficacious and there are less side effects compared to oral finasteride. Please see the following study published in 2019 in the Journal of Drugs in Dermatology: "Preliminary results regarding the application of topical FNS for the treatment of AGA are promising. Current data suggests that there may be a therapeutic potential for topical FNS in the treatment of AGA, while minimizing unwanted systemic side effects associated with oral use. Topical FNS appears to be non-inferior for hair regrowth when compared to systemic FNS. Combination therapies including topical FNS, as well as MNX or dutasteride, may be more effective than topical FNS alone. Topical FNS is not widely used despite its proven efficacy and lack of side effects, most likely due to the lack of evidence-based research." https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6609098/
  10. Looks like shockloss to me. I know it's hard not to worry about this, but it's universally common
