  1. I got an answer back from Bisanga, 2500 grafts for 6250 euros.
  2. Also asked for a consultation on Bisanga's website. For me it's easier to travel to Europe, India is really far from where I live and I hate travelling by plane.
  3. Can you estimate how many grafts I would need to fix my hair? And how much it would cost me to do so?
  4. Cheers, I've asked for an online consultation on Demirsoy's website.
  5. This is why I am looking for suggestions of hair transplant clinics. 👍
  6. So you believe I'd best choose the hair transplant path? Yeah unfortunately I have barely saved $2,000 so Turkey would be the best choice for me at the moment since the costs are less compared to other countries.

  8. I will post a few once I get back home. Well no, I am not exactly ok with my current situation, this is why I am trying to find the best solution. I get a mix of anger and sadness everytime I see my hair in the mirror. It's quite possible that I'm diffuse thinning as the density all over the top of my head is absolutely atrocious when my hair is wet. It's better when the hair is dry but not that great. I'm so self conscious about the hairloss that I always wear a cap in public. I don't know if Finasteride and Rogaine is more effective in diffuse thinning than in normal receding. I have bought three bottles of Kirkland Minoxidil to try and get an improvement in my hair but the main concern for me is like I said in the main post, the conflict Minoxidil might have with HT. I have talked to a couple of doctors in Turkey for HT and with 2.5k grafts they said they could give some decent density. If that is achievable I wouldn't want to continue taking Minoxidil. That being said, if I start Minoxidil now and start getting some gains (I'm not really optimistic but you never know) in density and/or hairline before I get a HT, I'm concerned that when I stop Minoxidil and all that hair I recovered on it will fall off, it will make the transplant look funny or patchy.
  9. Hi I am new here, I am a NW3 with terrible density all over my head so I was thinking at a hair transplant recently. I’ve done some research and Turkey seems to be the place to go as prices are more affordable for a guy who’s from Eastern Europe. Now that we got that aside, I was assessing my hairliss options and it looks like this: 1. Try Minoxidil. - currently on Finasteride and dermarolling once per week with 1.5mm needles. - Minox can have good results along with Fin and dermaroller. Pros: - relatively cheap - can impove hair density Cons: - I can’t fathom the fact that I’m going to have to use it for the rest of my life - I heard its efficiency drops after a few years - once stopped all the gains are gone 2. Buzzcut I tried buzzcut for the first time during the coronavirus lockdown and I was honestly surprised that I was looking decent with it. I thought it would be a death sentence. I got a few compliments aswell including my gf who said I look sexier with buzzcut. Pros: - cheapest option - no more styling stress or bad hair day - hairline looks more even and density looks better Cons: - probably the biggest con is that despite being told that I look better, I personally don’t like it as much. I believe I look better with hair. For me looking as good as I can is an important aspect of my life. 3. Hair transplant Pros: - will restore my hairline and maybe density - I will enjoy hair for a long time if everything goes right Cons: - even if it’s done in Turkey, it’s still really expensive for me. Like I’d have to spend all the savings in the past 3 years. - I haven’t travelled in a foreign country alone so I am pretty anxious about going there myself - haven’t researched a lot on the top surgeons in Turkey so it’s a risk I might get botched What do you guys think I should do? I wanted to try Minoxidil but if I am to get a hair transplant, I don’t want the gains from Minox (if any) to interfere with the transplanted hair as I’ll probably stop using Minox after the transplant. I am NW3 btw. The quotes I got back from Elithairtransplant was 2.5k grafts. Dr. Cinik also said 2.3-2.7k grafts but Elithairtransplant asked for less money.
