  1. Kesser doesn’t use a microscope during surgery so I would rule him out. He also doesn’t speak any English which makes him a recluse of the international ht Doctors world/conferences. Bisanga is obviously more experienced than HLC or Pekiner but also more expensive. At HLC price point I highly advise Dr. Bruno Ferreira that charges the same price with a more skilled technique (also Doctor only surgery).
  2. I didn’t hide the scar when I did FUE+BHT because the FUT scar is unnoticeable with a number 2 razor haircut so I didn’t want to waste precious donor area on hidding the scar. My friend Ricardo also went to Pekiner and he did SMP to hide his scar a few months prior to the surgery.
  3. @Rossybop that’s just another Turkish hairmill. Turkey is the world capital of botched hair transplants because people are lured by the low cost price and amazing (fake or cherry picked) videos on social media or the clinic website. Never ever have a surgery with a Doctor that doesn’t have several real patients showing their results over the course of several months (patients that post before and after pictures are either fake or clinic representatives) In Turkey there are only two safe options: HLC and Dr. Kaan Pekiner.
  4. @Hamit38 follow Dr. Pekiner advise and start taking Finasterid because it will stop your hairloss and strengthen your donor area. Best of luck with your surgery.
  5. @Hamit38 you are comparing Asmed which is a high price hairmill where techs do surgery on up to 8 patients per day with a highly skilled doctor only surgery by one of the best Doctors in Turkey. Asmed was kicked out of HRN for unethical behavior towards patients that are HRN members. As a patient of Dr. Pekiner i have to say I find this comparison ridiculous because I had Dr. Pekiner sitting next to me for 3 days doing my whole surgery using stick&place (a highly skilled and demanding technique that’s also used by Dr, Konior in the US) which something you don’t get at harmills like Asmed or Cinik. @BLE123 is correct in warning you that Pekiner might refuse doing your surgery if your donor area has miniaturized hairs but it doesn’t seem like it does. Another great option in Turkey is HLC but other than HLC or Pekiner there’s no other I would go to in Turkey. Also advise you to check out Dr. Bruno Ferreira (same price as HLC with a more skilled technique).
  6. Revolut is much better because there are zero taxes with this card plus the exchange rate favors euro/usd/gbp. I never travel without Revolut! You can even make cash withdrawals without taxes (limited amount per week).
  7. I do believe this is the standard in Turkey. I went to a top Doctor in Turkey and only was allowed to wire the booking deposit the rest was paid in cash euros on the first day of the surgery. I traveled with 7000€ in cash and was quite scared of carrying around that much money but I had the clinic driver waiting for me at the airport and the Hotel was across the street from the clinic.
  8. @Melvin-Moderatorthis new member has clearly joined HRN with sole purpose of promoting this Turkish Harmill and critize any other HRN member that has given the very sound advice to stay away. I do agree with @UnbaldEaglethat a bann should be in order as this seems to be a Turkish rep claiming to be a UK national but using google translator to troll and promote his hairmill.
  9. I have been a member of HRN for the past 12 years and you joined 11 minutes ago and proceed to acuse a senior member of working for a black market clinic whilst promoting a Turkish hairmill using google translator proficiency of English when you claim to live in the UK. @Melvin-Moderator will surely agree that this very odd behavior from a newly joined member. I had two hair transplants using different techniques, FUT with Dr,. Rahal and FUE+BHT with Dr. Pekiner. So I do consider myself to have something to contribute at HRN and I’m honest when commenting the positives and negatives of all Doctors including the ones I selected for my own surgeries. Hope you refrain from this type of behavior in future posts and positively contribute with useful information.
  10. Congratulations on taking the leap towards a full head of hair. Your recipient area at 9 days is simply amazing and the hairline design is perfect with a very natural look. The donor looks very clean like all other Dr. BF patients. Keep posting pictures so we can follow your progress. Wish you all the best!
  11. If you are dead set on a FUE mega session with BHT you should book Eugenix. They are by far the clinic with the highest count of successful mega sessions.
  12. John it’s not a Portuguese thing for a small country to be proficient in other languages (Portugal, Scandinavian countries, etc) while bigger countries focus just on their own language and even dub movies into their own language (Italy, Spain, Brasil, France,etc). Feel sorry for these people that never heard the real voice of movie icons like Eddy Murphy or Robin Williams. Here in Portugal we all grow up listening to original movies, tv and English or Spanish music and that’s why we are more prepared to understand foreign languages. This is why all Portuguese can speak Spanish (or English) and no Spanish can speak Portuguese (even English is challenge for them). Nothing to do with saying a latin language like Spanish similar to another latin language like Portuguese because actually all latin languages have similarities and any Portuguese can understand several words and full sentences of any latin language even if we don’t speak them while bigger countries are content with only understanding Eddie Murphy if he’s dubbed in their own language.
  13. This troll was kicked out and came back again with different names but it was so easy to identify his trademark arrogant ignorance that he managed to get kicked out again.
  14. I know the physical and emotional strain a HT surgery takes and if I had the chance to go from NW6 to a full head of hair in one surgery with masters like H&W, Dr. Muresanu or Dr.Sethi, I wouldn’t hesitate because they have a great track record on doing mega sessions.
