  1. Hello Ladies and Gentlemen! After so many years, I am finally taking the gumption and undergoing an FUE procedure with Dr. Cinik. I have been umming and arring for too long and after seeing some amazing results I decided to pull the trigger! I originally wanted to go with Dr. Koray Erdoğan but due to finances I am going with Dr. Cinik. His work has been well represented on several other forums and I've seen a few pop up here. I've been loosing my hairline since I was 18 and after 12 years of postponing it, the universe lined up for me to be able to make it happen. As an English actor living in Los Angeles, I live in a town where looks sometimes overshadow talent, so I have decided that I am going to take the best of both worlds and make myself as marketable as possible (with versatile hair). As much as wigs and styling have helped in the past, I am a point where my hair is constantly on my mind...did the wind blow? How does it look when I get out the pool/ocean? Is the camera picking up the receding hairline?. ..pretty much the all the thoughts going through everyone's mind on this forum! I am scheduled for approx. 3500 grafts, to the frontal third of my head, on Tuesday Dec 12th in Istanbul and I am excited and nervous! Looking at the future I am excited to see what it brings me with a new full head of hair, even if it's just confidence in the wind haha! I'll keep you all updated over the course of the weeks so that people can use me as a resource if they want. Attached are the pics that I sent the doctor, so you can see where my progression started at. I am fortunate that I have very thick donor hair, so I am excited to see how the grafts to hair ratio!
  2. Hello all i have just had 4500 grafts in Istanbul. happy with the results, and want to post my jounrney on here so that I perhaps have advice from fellow forum members here are some photos before surgery and after . I had such a good experience in the Asmed clinic, the professionalism of the team, the efficiency of all team members, friendliness and how they made me feel beats anything I’ve ever expedited in a hospital , dentist etc. It was like being on holiday! If you have any comments let me know. I am hoping that I will have a dense hairline and be able to spike hair up without it looking see through.
  3. Hello everyone, My name is Mohammad. I am 28 years old man and i have been loosing hair since early 20s . I had been thinking of getting hair transplant since ages, so recently i had an FUE procedure (3000 grafts) at ASMED in Turkey. I have been really impressed by the work of Dr. Koray Erdogan, as he has produced amazing results and has many satisfied patients. So i contacted ASMED and they got back to me in couple of days and we decided to carry out the procedure on 3rd of September 2018. Dr Erdogan initially suggested 2600-3200 grafts and also recommended me to start Propecia. I had taken finestride in past and had no issues so i willingly agreed to it. My patient coordinator Muge was continuously in contact with me and she explained each step thoroughly and was great help . She happily answered each and every question i had regarding the transplant. Must say she is very professional. So i booked my flight and after few weeks i traveled to Istanbul. As my procedure was planned on Monday and consultation was planned on Friday so i had to travel on Thursday. Before traveling my my patient coordinator contacted me asking if everything was ready. I reached the airport and one of the ASMEDs driver was there to pick me up. Its 35 minutes drive from airport to the hotel. The driver was nice and the vehicle was comfortable as well. My patient coordinator called me on my way to hotel and explained next steps . I checked in hotel and next day i had my consultation. Hotel was amazing and staff was very polite. Next day the driver came to pick me up from the Hotel and took me to the clinic. I was received by my patient coordinator and her colleagues. They were very nice people and were great hosts. My coordinator took me to have some blood tests and ecg. Afterwards she gave me some papers to read which gives details about the procedure and the complications which can occur and i had to sign it as well. Afterward i was taken for photos and then i had consultation with Dr Koray. He was very polite and he assessed my hair loss and asked me few questions. He drew my Hair line and decided to implant 3000 grafts. I agreed to it as he is one of the greats in Turkey and trusted his judgment. Only thing which i think was a downer that the consultation felt bit rushed as he had several other patients waiting. He only spent around 10 minutes with me. I went down after that and had my head shaved and then Dr. Erdogan came to draw the final hairline and made it more symmetrical. After that I had another photo shoot with shaved head. I also had chat with anesthesiologist who gave me antibiotics and benzodiazepine to have them on the day of surgery. As it was weekend after so I had 2 days to just chill and see the city. But one has to be careful as its warm in Istanbul and drawn hairline can get altered due to sweating. I managed remove bit of my hairline as it rubbed against my pillow and I traveled during the weekend so it was removed a little due to sweating. But 90% of it was still intact so it wasn’t a huge issue but was bit stressful. Nevertheless I enjoyed the next two days and was looking forward to the transplant. During all this time my coordinator was in contact with me and was guiding me through. So the day of “judgment” came and I and few other patients were picked up from the hotel early morning and taken to the clinic. There we were told to change and after that we were taken to our respective operating rooms. The technicians met me there and were very warm and nice to me. They made sure that I was completely comfortable. I was given Ipad to browse on while they went about their work on my head. I could also see the no. of grafts being extracted on a computer screen which they were updating regularly. The procedure itself was fine but the only issue I had was that my anesthesia kept wearing off and I felt bit of pain so they had to put local anesthesia again. Dr. Erdogan did come to do incisions. After extraction I was served some food and after that I went back to the room for implantation. I slept through almost the whole procedure so it didn’t feel so long to me but it did take more than 8 hours to do the whole thing. After that I was taken upstairs where they took some pictures again and I also met Dr Erdogan who inspected my head and gave thumbs up. There i also met other patients who seemed very happy about their procedures and the feeling was mutual on my side. Then we were given ice gel and atp spray to use. We were driven back to the hotel and I kept using the spray and ice as instructed. I fell asleep bit early that night. I was also given a neck pillow which was very uncomfortable to sleep with but I had to mange with it for next 10 days. Next day driver came to pick us up for the first wash. My 1st wash done at the clinic and they also explained me how to perform it myself at home. As I was staying few extra days in Istanbul after the transplant so they offered to do the washes for the rest of days as well, which I think was very nice of them. I was given the shampoo, antibiotic cream, a body lotion, paper towels and dermovat as after care pack. They also gifted us power bank charger and trimmer which they used to shave our heads :P. For next couple of days I kept coming to the clinic for the washes and they provided the transport . I did have a lot of swelling on the 3rd day. It started from my forehead and traveled down. At one point i had swell in my eyelid making me look like some sort of monster lol. I got several looks at the airport but its all part of the experience. Eventually the swelling resolved after 6 days . I had difficulty in sleeping due to itching and burning sensation in donor area. But this improved with the passage of time . I am very happy with my experience at ASMED . I must say it is a team of complete professionals and they are very helpful. I strongly suggest others to consider this clinic as well, you won`t be disappointed. Now the waiting game has started and I hope I get great results as many others did.

  5. I would like to share my recent HT experience at Asmed as this forum played a deciding factor in helping me discover and choose Dr Erdogan, so believe it’s fair to try and give something back based on my own experiences. I’m 31 from the UK and have thought about getting a HT for around 6 years. My hairline started receding from my early 20’s and from around 28/29 I noticed my hair on top was very much starting to thin so knew the time to do something about it was approaching faster then I had anticipated. I actually had 3 consultations in the UK over the space of a couple of years in my late 20’s but when I turned 31 and realised my hair on top was deteriorating quiet rapidly, I realised it was time to do something about it and also be open to having surgery abroad. I contacted a few clinics in Turkey, Cyprus and Belgium and all gave me a very similar graft number quotation. I decided to go with Dr Erdogan at Asmed and though he was one of my most expensive options I just felt I had the best chance of achieving the best results at his clinic. So I booked up and arrived in Turkey the 27th of Feb, the day before my consultation. From the moment I arrived at Istanbul airport and was picked up by my driver the whole experience has been amazing and actually exceeded my expectations. I opted to stay at the clinic itself and it’s very modern, clean and you can tell no expense has been spared as it’s a fabulous building. I had my consultation with Dr Erdogan on the 28th of Feb and on closer inspection my hair needed a lot more work from what he had seen in the 12 photos I had sent. My original estimate of between 2,500-3,000 grafts (which all clinics quoted) turned into 4,000. To be fair once my hair was analysed I had a feeling my hair loss may appear worse then the actual 12 photos of it dry and wet. The Doctor drew a hairline for 4,000 grafts but actually said he would like to use 5,000 grafts to bring my hairline even lower and to add some side temples too. With both lines drawn on my head there was no comparison so I made a phone call back home and luckily arranged to have more money transferred as the cash I brought didn’t cover 5,000 grafts. It also meant having my original procedure start on Friday the 1st of March but I would need a second day on the Monday 4th to finish the procedure. They let met stay at the clinic for the extra days needed for free and my co-ordinator re-arranged my flight back home for me too. I have just arrived back from Turkey and I couldn’t be happier with how everything has worked out. Everyone who works at the clinic are amazing, caring and genuinely do care for your needs. The staff are so friendly and have made my experience much more enjoyable then what I thought it might be. I’m actually going to really miss all the staff, as I say they have all been incredible to me and my personal co-ordinator has been amazing and caring too. She is one of the nicest people I’ve ever met and always kept me updated and answered all questions I had even before I arrived in Turkey. I honestly don’t think I could have picked a better clinic to carry out my procedure and literally couldn’t pick a single fault in the 6 nights I ended up staying at Asmed. I will add some stats on my hair once I arrive home but my thickness is 55 microns and been taking Finasteride 1mg 5 weeks before procedure. Thanks for reading and I would be happy to answer any questions or give advice about choosing Asmed, but so far I’m so happy I decided to go with Asmed. The first 2 photos are straight after my first day of the procedure.
  6. Hi everyone, I’ve been a long time reader of this site while I’ve been on my own hairloss journey, and similar to many other people, I’ve decided to share my story and details of my procedure here to help anyone else who may be planning a similar path and would like to see my experience. The background I’m now 33, and I initially realised I was thinning around 10 years ago. My older brother thinned around a similar time, my Grandad was bald though my Dad (in his 60's) still has thin hair coverage. Initially it was just on the crown of my head before it thinned on my temples and I tried a number of solutions before realising I needed to take Finasteride and to look into Regaine / Rogaine products. I joined the hair restoration programme at Boots here in the UK, and paid the equivalent of £1 a day for Propecia. I’m very fortunate in that I don’t think I have had any side effects at all! I tried Regaine, but after a year I really didn’t notice any difference so I stopped it. About two years ago, when I moved to Barcelona, I started taking a generic form of Finasteride which is available over the counter in Spain. It’s in 5mg pills which I cut into four segments and I take one a day, at a cost of about 10 Euros for about 4 months’ worth (far more cost effective…). I also began shaving my head short (not skinhead, but shortly cropped) – and I had a micropigmentation procedure (basically a tattoo on my head) that certainly helps my head look a darker shade, but didn’t really solve the hairloss issue. While I feel happy that the finasteride has slowed down the hair loss and the pigmentation procedure helped disguise my situation, I’ve never been happy with the crown / corners of my hair and so I’ve worn either Toppik or Mane Hair Thickening Spray (dark brown) for a while which I feel covers up my hair loss really well. However, as soon as I lean against a white wall or sleep in a bed that doesn’t have dark bedsheets, I leave behind a black mess and I always knew I’d go down the hair transplant route one day. Plus I was recently with a dude who ran his hand through my hair then saw the black mess on his hand and was like ‘what’s this?’. Let’s just say I’d prefer not to deal with that kind of embarrassing situation again. Deciding on the hair transplant An ex of mine told me he’d gone to Este Grande in Istanbul for his transplant but it seemed a little too cheap to be true. He’s only just had his procedure and I think it looks great, but it’s too soon to tell and I didn’t want to choose price over quality reviews. Another ex had gone with DHI Global in Greece (I seem to have dated a lot of people with hair loss issues huh?), though I’d read some reviews of DHI that didn’t make me feel confident. I used these forums and found out about Dr. Erkan Demirsoy / Armamed and took some time looking through his work and reading through forum posts from people who’d chosen him, and I was sold. As I don’t need to create a new hairline (just lots of focus on the crown and temples) then I feel confident that for his price, it would be the best for me. He’s quoted me the standard 3500 – 4000 hairs, for 1.25 Euro a graft. I booked, and fortunately he had space in about 6 weeks’ time from when I booked. Today I'm flying from London (where I currently live) into Istanbul and my procedure is tomorrow on April 17th. I fly back to the UK on the 19th where I’ll spend a week with my family recovering and stuffing my swollen face with Easter Eggs. I’ve included some pictures here which show my hair before the MSP procedure and after the MSP procedure, and my current situation where I’ve grown my hair a bit which will help Dr D see the whole hair picture, which isn’t so easy to see due to the MSP procedure I had. You may notice my hairline isn’t all that straight (ironically) but that doesn’t really bother me – I’m happy with where my hairline is and would only want the temples filled in. I usually use Mane HT spray as I think it provides a really good cover up solution and some of you reading this may find it’s a better, temporary solution while you consider the transplant path. Final words I’m really looking forward to the procedure and will do everything I can to get the best yield. I’m a non-drinker or smoker, and I'll do my best to follow all the professional advice I can to get a good result. I play sport a lot – mainly cycling, lots of rowing, weightlifting and I walk everywhere so I’ll be keen to get back into that afterwards. My biggest fear in all this is being 6’5” (195cm) and the fact I hit my head everywhere I go….the metro…doorframes…lampshades…low hanging branches. Finally, something I’ve learnt from what I’ve read is to manage my expectations. I’m not expecting that I’ll come out of this (after a year) with a full head of hair. I just want MORE hair in the places that are thinning, and to not feel like I’m 53 when I’m 33 and to not leave a dark brown trail mark in white areas. All future posts will be shorter but I wanted to give you the background to my journey. The following post will show the pictures on surgery day and please feel free to ask me anything or comment as I’d love to share my experience with you all.
  7. Hello, I am making this post to create a tracker. I wrote about my experience/background in a previous post. I am going to try to keep the two somewhat separate. If you want to learn about my journey, visit the other post here. I will try to keep updating anyone interested on this post from March 5th 2019 going forward. Before and immediately after:
  8. I have been losing hair since I was 19yrs old and I was on and off minoxidil since I was 24 but at 28yrs I completely stopped minoxidil for 1 yr and it was the worst decision ever. I lost almost all my hair within this 1 yr. I tried to get back on minoxidil and finasteride but it did not help. At age 30, I finally decided that I will do HT. After some research and some consultation with various doctors in Chicago, including Dr.Vladamir Panine, Dr.Allan Purgangao and some doctors in India including Dr.Madhu and Dr.Bhatti. I finally decided to go ahead and fly to India to perform my HT with Dr.Bhatti. Here is my experience with Dr.Bhatti at Darling buds. I reached India on 8th of Oct 2018, Dr.Bhatti had arranged transportation from Delhi airport to Chandigarh. It's a 3hrs ride which was pretty decent even after the long 19hr flight. I was taken directly to the hotel where I slept few hours. At 430pm local time a car was sent to pick me up from the hotel for my consultation with Dr.Bhatti. The consultation was about my hairline design and inspection of my donor area, after which blood sample were taken for necessary investigation. Day of the surgery. I was give antibiotic and sedative injection. I was drowsy very quickly and felt slight pinch at the back of my head at the beginning but soon I fell asleep and did not feel any pain. The surgery was about 7hrs during which a total of 2476 grafts were harvested from the donor area. Single - 328 Double - 1657 Triple - 491 I did not have any pain after the surgery and came back from dressing the donor area early next morning. The healing was pretty good and on the 3rd day my dressing was completely taken off, I never took any pain medication after the surgery. I am pretty pleased with the healing process so far. I have posted pictures taken on the day of the surgery and progression on week 1 , 2, and 3. Dr.Bhatti has prescribed to take finasteride 1mg + 5mg biotin and spray minoxdil 5% for the first 6 months only to promote hair growth. I am taking the medication religiously and hoping for the best outcome.
  9. Day 1. Hi everyone, I finally did it. After contemplating for many years at he age of 19, and now at the age of 32, i finally saved up enough $$ to get a hair transplant. I went with Dr. Hasson as my first consultation and it went really well as he's very personable, and wants you to look like a rockstar. And of course because he's local. I originally was planning on going with Dr. Diep, however that didn't go to plan and I'm truly glad i went with Dr. Hasson instead. Anyways, I had procedure for 3000 grafts to be implanted, it took all day from 7am to 9pm to finish. A lot of bathroom breaks and they offer a huge selection of meals to pick from 3 different restaurants nearby, which i wasn't' expecting. Dr. Hasson also consulted with me with hairline and i always had a big forehead so i wanted it lowered a bit to fit my face more naturally and have more hair dense altogether. Once that was done, the nurses prepped me up and did the extraction and then Dr. Hasson came into work on me and design and then a second pair of nurses assisted the implant. He always checked up on me once or twice and was getting me more stoked about people's results as he was showing me a previous patient who had came in after 9 months to take pics of his results and it was amazing to see their before after live. In in the end I was pleased with procedure, and i can't wait to see what i look like going forward. Below are two pics: the left is after coming home the night of the transplant and the right is how my M shape hairline was before taken in the car ride to the clinic. You can't really see the hairline difference yet, hopefully it'll turn out like a rockstar. Anyways, enjoy, let me know if you have any questions. P.S. Going home was painful but the pain killers help.
  10. Hello all, Felt it would be useful for me to recount my hair restoration experience, given that I have just returned from a FUE transplant in Turkey. Preamble Things are a little confused by the fact that (a) I've been using pharmaceutical methods to try and mend my hair and (b) I'm trans and on meds that also affect hair growth. If you just want to see photos of before and after the operation, then just skip to the next post. I've also put 3570-4070 grafts in the title, because the the number of total grafts done (4070) doesn't match up if you add all the singles/doubles/multiples. I suspect this is just a typo and hopefully will be able to correct it at some point. History Since 2016, when I finally decided to do something about the trans thing as it was becoming hideous, I've been on quite a few meds. First up hormone inhibitors - Finasteride 1mg OD from late 2016 to mid 2017, then Dutasteride 0.5mg OD from mid 2017 to date. I also used Spironolactone 50mg OD for about 5 months in the middle of 2018 and Ketoconazole 2% Shampoo from late 2016 to date. Supplements - I've taken a multivitamin/mineral everyday since late 2016 to date, Biotin 10mg OD since late 2016 to date and an Omega Fish Oil supplement since mid 2017 to date. I also tried Taurine 0.5g OD for about 6months in 2017 (don't ask why..and no it doesn't do anything). I've been on Minoxidil 5% since Jan 2017 to date and have been on and off Dermarolling with a 1.5mm needle since mid-late 2017. I'm really irregular with the dermarolling - partly because I worry that it may cause problems WRT scarring, but mainly because it just bloody hurts. Lastly I used Estradiol (varying doses) from late 2017 to mid 2018 and again from December 2018 to date. Although I'm obviously using Estradiol because I'm trans and it makes me better, there is some research that suggests that it does help with hair loss (increasing anagen time IRRC). It also works against Testosterone. Yes, I rattle when I walk now. PSA: It goes without saying that Spironolactone and Estradiol are both serious HRT medications. Unless you have issues relating to your gender (or you're a woman and under medical supervision), men should not be taking these. Very few men really appreciate growing boobs, female fat redistribution, reduced body hair etc etc. Spiro may give you this and Estradiol will definitely do so. Dutasteride is also pretty heavy and pretty much wipes out all the DHT in your body. Although DHT may be the enemy of scalp hair, it's does have its uses! Thanks to all this From late 2016 to now, I went from pretty much a Norwood 6 to somewhere nearer a Norwood 5 variant. I'm not one for keeping photos of myself (go figure) but you can see the change here. I presumably will get the pre-photos from the clinic at some point, but I was pretty much at the first picture when went to get the hair transplant. It goes without saying that unless your hairloss is relatively recent, pills and potions will only do so much and sometimes it's a case of getting as much back as possible before you take a surgical route. Surgery I was initially going to have a hair transplant in early-mid 2018, but thanks to various issues, I had to put it off. I quite early on chose Dr Resul Yaman in Istanbul, Turkey. It was tempting to go with cheaper options (as Turkey is easy to get to and seems to be the best value when it comes to hair transplant surgery), but I was quite impressed by various videos and timelines and the price, whilst not the cheapest was manageable with my means. I also found that they were very easy to communicate with compared to other clinics - this is mostly due to the fact that a guy called Fikret handles communication with English-speaking clients and he is very friendly and helpful. As I am very lazy, I also appreciated the fact that they sorted out pretty much everything on the trip apart from the flight. I arrived in Istanbul late on the 17th Feb and they picked me up from the airport and took me to the hotel - a nice, businessy type hotel, but with a number of people there staying who clearly had been having surgeons prodding at their scalps. The surrounding area is obviously in heavy development, but that was very much of an aside as you're expected to be (a) not there for long and (b) not exerting yourself at all. The I'm not sure if I got it mixed up, but I was expecting to have the assessment on the 18th then to have the operation on the 19th, but as it turned out, everything was done on the 18th - met up with Fikret at the clinic (who turned out not to be the wizened old grey-haired guy I'd imagined him to be) and he pretty much lead the whole thing and I was taken for bloods, then for assessment with Dr Yaman in quick succession. The clinic looked clean and modern and people seemed friendly, though it was difficult to be sure as my Turkish is non-existent. Fikret did all the interpreting and generally managed to look extremely busy whilst making sure you were attended to. I started to realise that things weren't going how I thought they would when I was taken to get my hair buzzed off and a short while after I was taken to a room where Dr Yaman jabbed my scalp so that the grafts could be placed. Dr Yaman obviously speaks little English, but he seemed pretty friendly during the assessment and seemed to get things done efficiently. The extraction and implantation was done by a few technicians. My memory is pretty fuzzy as I was off my tits on painkillers / anaesthetics, but I definitely remember at one point three people going for it on my head at once. The operation went on for somewhere around eight hours, though I wasn't really tracking time. Weirdly for me, I was in a right mood at the end, which I imagine was due to coming off all the delicious medications that they gave at the start. The blurb they gave me said: 4070 FUs had been transplanted Single 524 Double 2261 Multiple 785 This obviously doesn't add up. Generally, I was pretty impressed with the experience - Fikret's management seemed to go pretty smoothly, the assessment / operation was super-efficiently done, accommodation was nice, all the taxi-ing around was provided for and staff were friendly. The only major problem was one of my own doing and which Fikret was very sensible about. I am already planning to go back in November to get the crown done and my hairline made into something a bit more resembling a female hairline. Now for pictures..
  11. Hi All. Been reading posts on this site for several years and want to begin by saying ‘Thank You’ to those that have come before me. Without the countless hours of watching the progress and results of others, I’d never have had the confidence to give a HT a shot. I recently took the plunge and had an FUE performed. I don’t plant to go into details about the surgeon or the facility. I’ve seen in other posts where unconscious bias about a given surgeon sways the type of feedback received. So like some others I’ve seen on this site, I plan to omit surgeon ID until month 8 (arbitrary date). Until then hopefully focus will just be on the results. I will go into details about the surgeon/clinic in a few months time, but for now I have only positive things to say about my time there. Surgeon, technicians, clinic - everything was top notch. Ok, so here’s my story quickly. My hairline began receding in my late 20s, and now in my late 30s it had progressed to being well on its way to a solid Norwood 3a. I’d met with reps of the clinic who’d both felt I was a candidate for somewhere between 2500-3000 grafts. Upon arrival at the clinic, however, Dr took one look at me and said that due to the fine/thin nature of my hair, that he was reluctant to proceed with anything less than 4000. After quick contemplation I agreed with his advice and we proceeded as follows: Day 1: 2,633 Grafts 404 singles 1639 doubles 590 multi's (~5,452 hairs) Day 2: 1,717 Grafts 113 singles 1109 doubles 495 multi's (~3,816 hairs) Total: 4,350 grafts 517 singles 2748 doubles 1085 multi’s ~9,268 hairs Here are the pics. 2 photos taken morning of surgery Surgery Day 1 Surgery Day 2 Several pics following surgery with post-op date noted on the pic. I should note I am sensitive to epinephrine so the team had to use the a lot less epi when injecting my scalp with the anesthesia. The lack of epi caused more bleeding and bruising (and pain) than normal, but the team handled it all like pros. Eager to hear any feedback folks have and happy to answer any questions as well. Thanks.
  12. Well the day has come for me to leave to Istanbul Turkey from The United States. It will be an 11hr flight so I'm hoping the seats are comfortable haha. I am a bit nervous but looking forward to 6 months from now when I start to see new growth. I will post before and after pics as the time goes on. This site has really helped me choose Asmed and be confident in that choice. Between 4000-4500 was my online quote, so I will find out when I'm there how many I will have done. Fingers crossed for a safe procedure!
  13. This topic comes up a lot, so we decided to compile our best surgeons in Turkey. What do you guys think, whats your list? Best Hair Transplant Surgeons in Turkey
  14. Hi everyone, I am a 42 year American living in Vietnam. It seems to me I am a Norwood classification 3. I started progressively losing my hair in my thirties and have been thinking about doing a HT for some years. Finally, I am going to get approximately 2500 FUE grafts implanted thanks to / with Dr. Kongkiat Laorwong on November 22 2018 and I will be posting on a regular basis to share my story and pictures with those interested. Below is my story and situation. Story: after researching the subject of hair transplant for some months, I decided to go with FUE as it does appear to be the best procedure today but then still needed to find the right surgeon for the procedure. I looked at options in Vietnam where I live first. Price with a surgeon in Ho Chi Minh City was only USD 2 per FUE graft but the impression I got was not good so I decided to exclude the Vietnam option. After, I looked at Turkey and Thailand. There were certainly many more recommendations for surgeons in Turkey when searching in English on the internet but I finally opted for Dr. Kongkiat Laorwong in Bangkok for the following reasons (from most to least important) 1. the reviews of patients here for his work were mostly positive (not all but most). 2. this network recommended him and his work. Also, Thailand has a reputation for good surgeons (as does Turkey). 3. he was closer to my home in Vietnam. 4. At 90 Thai Baht per graft, the surgery was not really cheaper than with top Turkish surgeons but I could save about USD 1000 on plane ticket and avoid travelling to Istanbul in the winter. So far, I have met Dr. Laorwong and his assistant yesterday for the check-up visit and things went well. Dr. Laorwong is not a talkative man but he is pleasant and seems concerned enough with his patients. Also, his diagnostic was the same as mine: 2500 grafts in total, mostly on the frontal sides, plus some added grafts to the existing hairs on the front and on the temples in order to increase density. I want to take a quick minute here to thank Hair Restoration Network for the work you do and the previous bloggers who have posted on their personal experiences because without you I might not be envisaging the surgery I am about to have. I also want to thank Dr. Laorwong for taking me on as a patient and I hope he does a great job on me. Wish me luck! Here are a few pre-op pictures to get started. I will post more pre-op and post-op pictures after Nov 22 and thereafter tell and show you how things progress month by month. Hopefully well. Cheers!
  15. Alright....looks like it's my turn at the plate. Since I'd used this forum quite a bit when making decisions concerning my hair restoration surgery, I thought I'd share my experience with the community to help others make their decisions as well. My FUE procedure with ASMED was performed 11 days ago (December 17, 2018) and I had 3051 grafts transplanted. My progress and thoughts are described below. Online Quote I submitted my request for a quote on ASMED's website. This was a pretty simple process involving the submission of 12 photos (6 wet, 6 dry) from various angles and the submission of answers, on the website, to certain questions related to my hair loss, hair restoration goals, and medical history. Within a day, I received an email assigning me my patient coordinator. The following, day, I received an estimate for the total graft count I'd likely need, as well as the expected duration (in days) of the surgery and the amount of time I'd need to spend in Istanbul. A rough sketch of the surgical plan was provided, as well as a brief synopsis of what the surgery would entail, as well as the price per graft (2.5 euros) and information about the regrowth warranty. For those who have not done this yet, I'd recommend using a flash when you take your pictures. I didn't use a flash with mine (I used indirect natural light) and ended up getting under-quoted, as the extent of my hair loss at the vertex wasn't completely apparent in the images I had provided. Why I Chose ASMED I did a lot of research prior to making my decision. Out of all the reputable doctors I found (ones who were endorsed by the IAHRS, American Hair Loss Association, and this forum), Dr. Koray had the most patient results posted online, both by the clinic and by the patients, themselves. I had done an analysis of these results on one of the other threads by scanning through three of the online forums, including this one, and found that there was at least an 81% chance of having a good to great result, which was sufficient for me. There weren't really enough reviews of the other doctors to analyze them in a similar way with statistical significance. When combined with the cost of the procedure (which was relatively low compared to other top-tier clinics), dates of availability that aligned with my own, the 90% regrowth guarantee, ASMED's generally good reputation, etc., this clinic seemed like the best match for me. Coordination Prior to Trip While I waited for a few months between the submission of my deposit and my travel date, I peppered my coordinator (Muge) with questions about the process and procedure. For example, I asked her about: Methods of payment (including exchange rates, whether I could bring USD for the cash portion of my payment, etc.). You make an initial deposit in euros (maximum of 3500 euros) and then the remainder of the balance is paid in cash upon arrival at the clinic, on the consultation day. I was allowed to bring USD. To be honest, I wasn't very happy about having to carry thousands of dollars of cash with me (since I was kind of paranoid about losing it or being robbed), but, thankfully, I didn't end up having any issues. Information about my personal safety and the drivers. ASMED provides a photograph of their drivers, who pick you up at the airport, drive you to the hotel/clinic. All transportation to/from the airport and to/from the clinic is handled by ASMED. Information about accommodations. You're given the choice to stay at the Radisson Blu Istanbul Asia or at the clinic itself. I opted for the former, as the rooms at the clinic, as nice as they were, looked/felt a bit too much like hospital rooms. Also, I liked the 24 hour room service available at the hotel and the option to eat in solitude, if I so chose. If you choose to stay at the clinic, however, they provide you free meals throughout the day (you only get breakfast included if you stay at the hotel). Details about who would be performing the various aspects of the surgery, which was a point of contention on these forums. Dr. Koray performs the consultation, draws the hairline, and does the incisions during the surgery. Techs to the extraction and implantations. I discussed this at length with my coordinator and had a thorough understanding of how this would work long before I traveled; by the time I made the trip, I was comfortable with this arrangement. From what I was told, all technicians are required to meet specific, rigorous requirements (certain number of years practicing with the clinic, quality certification, etc.) before they are allowed to take part in the surgery. My coordinator was responsive, quick, and went out of her way to allay any of the concerns I had. She responded to me by email, phone (on the rare occasion when texting wouldn't be sufficient), and WhatsApp texting. Flights, Transportation, and Hotel I'm not going to go into detail about the flights, as that whole process is pretty straightforward and not really relevant to the clinic itself. Given that I'm from the US, I did need to get a travel visa to enter Turkey (you can do this online in advance and it costs about 20 USD). As expected, my driver was waiting for me in the airport arrivals area. He was holding a tablet with my name on it. The ride from the airport to the hotel was about 45 minutes (you cross from the European side of Istanbul to the Asian side) and I was the only passenger. The driver was friendly and responsive to my requests; he even described some parts of the city to me, as if he were giving a tour, during the drive. Additionally, water bottles and snacks were available inside the car. I opted to stay in the hotel for the reasons previously described. The room is comfortable and clean and there's a nice view of Istanbul if you're on one of the higher floors. Moreover, the hotel has 24 hour room service and a reasonably diverse menu -- this was a big selling point for me, as I was a bit self conscious about leaving the room with my head all marked up before the surgery and bandaged up after surgery. The employees at the front desk speak English, though the room service bellhops sometimes don't (IMO, they didn't really need to). The hotel has a spa and other pretty cool amenities, though I'll admit I didn't take advantage of many of them. In-Person Consultation On consultation day (the Friday before the procedure), I was driven to the clinic in the early afternoon. I was promptly greeted in the lobby by my coordinator, as well as a host who asked if I needed a drink or a snack (she did this repeatedly throughout the day). Two girls in the lobby serenaded the waiting patients with piano and violin. The atmosphere was light and relaxing. There were several other patients in the lobby at the same time, taking a break from various stages of the consultation. My coordinator sat down with me and gave me an overview of what I should be expecting that day, as well as on surgery day. After we discussed certain questions I had, she led me to various rooms for different stages of the pre-operative process, including a blood test and EKG, photographs, head shaving, etc. These activities were generally smooth and quick, though I had one small criticism -- specifically, that I had to wait for a while in the lobby for Dr. Koray to finish surgery before my in-person consultation. I was really jetlagged and tired at the time and it would've been better if I didn't have to wait nearly as long between the tests and the consultation with the doctor (like if they had timed me to come later in the afternoon). Other than this, everything was pleasant. When I met with Dr. Koray in his office, he greeted me warmly and introduced me to some of the other senior staff members. He came across as affable, jovial, and welcoming. As I introduced myself, he cracked a joke about the trend line from my analysis on this forum; at first, I was a bit taken aback that he knew I was the author, since I never actually identified myself (but I guess there weren't many American patients coming at the same time as I was). I sat down and Dr. Koray showed me the photographs taken earlier that day on his monitor. I showed him my own printed photos of what I wanted to look like (images of me from about 5 years ago), as well as pictures of my bald grandfather as an illustration of family history. Dy. Koray explained that we could meet my goal, but that I was, unfortunately, on my way to a NW6 (I'm currently NW3). He went on to explain that the degree of surgical intervention required would likely be higher than originally expected. As mentioned above, the photos taken at the clinic revealed noticeable thinning at the crown/vertex that wasn't nearly as apparent in the images that I had taken at home. The doctor recommended that I take finasteride in order to avoid having to come back to have the vertex worked in the near future (I was only quoted for a one day surgery on the frontal part of my head) and I explained to him the negative experience (i.e., side effects) that I'd experienced with finasteride years ago. He said he understood and that he respected my position, given that I'd tried it already in the past. I ultimately decided that I prefer to avoid finasteride (given what happened the first time I used it) and might come back to Turkey for a second round later, if necessary. I'll deal with the vertex when the time comes; this way, I'll have a chance to see how the results on the front part of my head turn out before I make any more decisions. At this point, the doctor took measurements of my hair and explained the calculation he uses to determine coverage. He then drew a hairline and asked for my thoughts. I was a bit picky with the hairline and requested several tweaks (including one small modification on the morning of the surgery) so that the line would match the natural one I used to have as closely as possible/reasonable. The doctor was patient with me and made the changes I asked for. After we were finished, and as I was getting up to leave his office, Dr. Koray turned to me and said something to the effect of "LordBaldwin, I can tell you care a lot about details, and so do I. I won't disappoint you." He went out of his way to reassure me; it seemed like he cares a great deal about making his patients happy. Surgery On surgery day, I was driven to the clinic early in the morning. I was taken to a small locker room to change into a surgical gown and was then led to the surgical room. The entire surgical area was very clean and organized (as an example, my coordinator had me change into a different set of shoes that they provided me as I entered into the "clean area"). In the surgical room, the team gave me a blanket and checked that I was comfortable. The anaesthesiologist asked me if I was nervous and I told him that my heart rate (which was showing on one of the monitors as around 90 bpm) is usually around 70 bpm. He nodded and injected me with a benzodiazepene and a sedative. I almost immediately relaxed. I sat upright with a head support wedged between my chin and my lap as the technicians injected my scalp with local anaesthetic and began the extraction phase. As they proceeded, they were very professional and repeatedly asked me if I felt any pain (if I did, they'd give me some more local anaesthetic). As grafts were removed from the donor area of my scalp, one of the technicians observed them under a microscope and counted, in real time, how many singles, doubles, triples, etc. had been extracted. These numbers were displayed on a screen in front of me. My coordinator handed me a tablet in case I wanted to surf the web or watch a movie. If I recall correctly, extractions took about 3 hours. We took a break for lunch, which the clinic provided. Upon returning to the operating room, I was told I could lie down for the remainder of the surgery. I was hooked back into the IV and Dr. Koray came in to do the incisions. I don't remember exactly how long the incision phase took since I was sedated and kept drifting in and out of sleep, but I do remember Dr. Koray working on me for some time, then shaking my hand at the end and mentioning that my circulation was very good and I'll be very happy with how things turn out. I slept through most of the implantation phase as well, up until the last hour or so. The technicians were methodical and quiet, and my coordinator, who sat across from me, assured me that everything was going well and repeatedly asked how I was doing. In total, the procedure took about 9 hours. After it was over, I was led back down to the photography room for post-operative photos to be taken. I was given instructions on how to do the post-op washes, sat under a laser/light follicular stimulation pod for a little while, and then was invited to dinner at the clinic (invitations for dinner at the clinic were extended to me every night I was in Istanbul, except for the weekend). Although I was only required to stay until the next day for the first wash, I opted to stay for an additional two days to recover a bit before I traveled back to the US. In the morning on each of the additional two days, I was driven back to the clinic for my morning wash (and some tea). Overall Impression Overall, I'm very happy with my experience at ASMED and would recommend it to other prospective patients (provided that they've done their due diligence and understand how surgeries are performed there). Since I had prepared extensively for my trip, I knew pretty much exactly what I was going to experience and there were no surprises. All of the employees were very accommodating, friendly, and attentive, and I felt well taken care of. The clinic itself was large, clean, and modern (ASMED had clearly spared no expense). A couple of other little pluses I noted: - On one occasion, I asked if the clinic had Turkish coffee (I wanted to try this since I didn't really get the chance to explore Istanbul while I was there). They didn't have it at that moment, but they actually went out and got it for me the following day! This was a relatively minor thing, but it impressed me. - On the last day I was there (when I came to the clinic for my third wash), Dr. Koray came into the room and asked me about my experience, making sure that it was positive. I told him I had enjoyed my time there, which he was happy to hear. The fact that he cared so much about my experience struck me very positively. Progress First, some hair characteristics... Hair thickness: 55 microns Hair per graft: ~2.44 Donor capacity prior to surgery: 8400 grafts Number of grafts transplanted: 3051 over 60 cm^2 Transplanted graft density: ~50 grafts/cm^2 And now, some pictures. Pre-Operative: Surgical Plan: Immediate Post-Operative (Day 0): Day 2 Post-Op: Day 3 (swelling is mostly gone): Day 5 (scabs and some minor cracking visible): Day 7 (vast majority of the scabs have come off): Day 10:
  16. Hello, My boyfriend has been incredibly depressed for ten years about his hair loss and he just finally managed to get 20k together to have an FUE procedure done by John Diep out of SF. The surgery was done last Saturday March 23, 2019. We are highly concerned because we can see such obvious rows of straight lines running up from his head.. I wanted to post some pictures so people can let us know if this is normal and will somehow end up looking natural, or if he is going to have more of a “hair plug” look. My boyfriend is upset because he chose Dr Diep because he talks of being a hairline artist, but the Dr did very little of the procedure himself. He had young technicians do most of the work. Do these pictures look normal? Is this good work? All the photos we’ve seen online of post op FUE show a much more scattered pattern and the research we’ve done has all concluded rows/grids end up looking very unnatural. We would really appreciate any input you might have 😢
  17. FUE & PRP 2260 graft My story: I am a 48 year old male that was slowly loosing my hair, progressive stage 2 with a bald spot on the side of my head since birth. (Alopecia) I have wanted a hair transplant for a few years because styling my hair didn't work anymore. I was always trying to mask the temples of my head, and the small bald spot on my left side. I went on hair loss forums and really dug deep on who I could trust. I finally made an appointment to see Dr Rahal at his Toronto office. I felt very comfortable with him and his staff members, I didn't book a date at that time and they did not pressure me to do so. It was a lot of money and I really couldn't afford it. But every day I looked in the mirror and saw someone that looked like a way older version of me. I then spoke with Tara and set up a surgery date at the Toronto office. May 24th 2018. In my mind it was going to be Dr Rahal doing everything. Extracting, separating, and all the the inplants. Knowing now, That would be impossible. There is a time line for the survival of the hair outside of the skin. Things have to be done in a very well orchestrated manor. This is where the Rahal team came in to play. There was 6 or more people working on me for over 8hrs. Yes over 8. The team including Dr Rahal is a very very well oiled machine. Once the surgery was over Dr Rahal inspected then gives the Ok to go home. Back the following day for a check of things and change of bandages. Back home for recovery. (Larissa) She gives you her email and phone number and has answers for ALL your questions. Fast forward 4 weeks post op. I made the mistake of going online and reading all the different post op hair transplant storys. DONT DO THIS. The hardest part of a hair transplant is the long waiting game. Dont expect to see anything for 6 months. Yes thats right. Month 6 my hair is unbelievable. No really!! I want to hug and kiss all the staff. He is known as the hair line king, and his reputation precedes him. If your reading this your probably second guessing the procedure pre or post op. From my experience the 6 month waiting game was the hardest part of the whole procedure but man it was worth it.
  18. Hi, I finally decided to bite the bullet and went with Dr Demirsoy on 20th December 2017. Although I was very nervous at first, Muzaffer who is the translator and organiser is a very calming character and kept me informed at all times so felt very comfortable and well looked after. The experience of it all I can't really fault at all so I wont bore people with the details as i'm sure you've heard it all before. Everything went very smoothly and only painful part i found was the injections in the donor area but this is only a very short part of the entire procedure so no real issue.
  19. Hi all, so after research and many years on here I finally got my hair transplant! i had fue 2200 grafts with a graft ratio around 3. will be updating as much as possible so please feel free to comment. i picked Dr Reddy based on his quality of work and his very respected reputation. The forum has been a massive help and made my selection of doctors far easier. i went to Dr Reddys clinic in Selston as after my initial consultation, found it to be cheaper and they could fit me in a lot sooner. On the first day I arrived a bit anxious,I was soon calmed down by Dr reddy and his team whom are all very welcoming ,friendly and funny yet still very professional. After the initial shave and planned hair line etc the procedure starts. There is a bit of pain with the anaesthetic but once numbed the majority of the procedure is painless. The worst part for me is keeping still ! I’m definitely a fidgeter. I think day 1 we did around half the planned grafts all of which was from the back of my head. The limited time the grafts are out and back in makes a lot of sense and hopefully will yield the most optimal results. The dr told me I had healthy chunky grafts so fingers crossed for a great result ! Lunch was provided on both days and the team really can’t do enough for you. Day two was much of the same only using the sides this time for the graft extraction. will post pictures later today.
  20. Hi All, Long-time forum reader here, first time poster. Since this site is and has been a valuable tool for many of us hair loss sufferers, I’ve decided to make an account and post about my hair transplant experience and progress in hopes of helping others in their journey, as this forum has been helpful in mine and many others’. With all that said, and in order to keep things impartial, I will mainly stick to posting my visual progress, I prefer to keep some details of my procedure private and I am not going to disclose the name of my surgeon/clinic until I have at the very least reached the 1-year mark of my progress so as the focus is on actual growth progress rather than other topics or issues. My purpose here is to share my experience and progress since many have kindly shared theirs, and have waited to do so until I have had some progress to share immediately rather than monthly. I am 40+, from the US and 7 months post FUE Ht. My FUE procedure consisted of 5,000 grafts done in mid-June of 2018. I have been taking photos of my progress along the way and will try and post them in timely respective order. Feedback is welcome and appreciated. Thanks.
  21. Disclaimer: I literally had my hair transplant days ago on April 9th 2019, so I don't have any Before/After photos to show just yet clearly. Down the road I am happy to post them to this thread. However, I do think that my experiences thus far are worth posting for people in my situation who are still researching and considering options. My story: I'm a 46 year old male with a balding crown. I refuse to be dragged into the land of the bald, and it's been something that I have been wanting to address for years. I decided to eschew the minoxidil/propecia route and I opted to go for something permanent. I'm American but I live and work in London. I do have family in LA, so I thought I'd look around LA to see if I could find a doctor the next time I was in town visiting the family. I did my research and in 2017 narrowed it down to Dr Parsa Mohebi and an unnamed competitor -- both highly rated on different websites, and both with very impressive resumes. I saw the latter unnamed doctor first, let's call him Doctor No. Doctor No certainly seemed impressive as my background research had suggested. Now, in addition to my balding crown, I also have a small area of scarring alopecia in a part of my forehead. Dr. No told me in my consultation that it would be no problem to address the crown and forehead issues over a day and a half of hair transplantation. Dr No also gave me a booklet of his extensive research on hair transplant techniques that he had published in academic journals. Hang on to to both of these facts for a second. To digress a bit here, I have a PhD in theoretical physics, and I am not someone who is easily impressed/intimidated by others' scientific achievements. So a folder of academic papers on hair transplant techniques is really of no use or relevance to me, other than a pure and cheap show-off tactic. I am not looking to research or learn how to do hair transplants. I am looking to have an expert do one. Whoopty-doo if he has published papers. With so many experts out there, I would almost expect nothing less. So I shelved Dr No, and a few months later on a subsequent trip to LA, I met with Dr Parsa Mohebi and this consultation had a very different flavor. Firstly, after inspecting both my bald spots he told me flat out that while the crown would be a standard process, I really didn't need to have a transplant for the small alopecia in my forehead, since I could simply cover it with other forehead hair while combing. More importantly, he wasn't certain whether hair could grow in that scar tissue, although he would be happy to take a biopsy to ascertain this. Two things about this. Here is a hair transplant surgeon sitting in a Beverly Hills office frankly recommending a cheaper and more cost-effective way to deal with one of my hair-loss areas, when any other doctor could have easily just said he would happily transplant hair to the spot, and make the extra buck(s) (per each hair graft). And it wasn't just his candor that stood out, but the fact that he didn't want me to do a needless procedure without verifying first whether it would be successful. The other unnamed doctor above seemed to have no qualms about this whatsoever. Note: I mean no disrespect to Dr. No despite my comical moniker for him. He did come across as a very competent and successful hair transplant surgeon and I am sure he is great. This is simply my personal opinion/experience. The other thing that stood out about Dr Mohebi vs Dr No: Dr Mohebi could have also wowed me with his academic research (which again would have been pointless and irrelevant from my perspective, as I already know that he is a renowned hair transplant surgeon from my background research). Instead he gave me a book that he has published -- THIS IS A MUST READ BOOK EVEN IF YOU DON'T SEE HIM -- "Modern Hair Restoration, A Complete Hair Loss Guide for Men and Women, 2nd Edition." The book is excellent and written exactly for people like me, who knew nothing about hair transplants, aside from all the myths and half-truths. He goes over all the techniques that are used (strip/FUE etc), what's involved in transplant procedures, the recovery process, etc etc etc, and written for the non-specialist and future patient. My research stage was now complete, and I was ready to take the plunge and go ahead with the procedure. And this is where I got to know and work with the team at Parsa Mohebi Hair Restoration better. Not only are they super-professional, but also super-nice and friendly. In fact, I had to cancel my initial procedure scheduled in November 2018, owing to a sudden bout of horrific influenza that hit me literally two days before my procedure. Melissa and Niki, who are part of his admin team were very accommodating and kindly worked with me to find another date in April 2019, with no extra expense on my side for the cancelation and rebooking. As far as the actual procedure went, Dr Mohebi's exhaustive (but very easy to read) book really helped with the prep. I had also spent some time watching other hair transplants on YouTube by other doctors so none of it was a real surprise. But I will say, it was much easier and more straightforward that I had expected. During the procedure, they let me listen to whatever music I wanted, and even listened to me talking nonstop (as much as I could without disturbing the procedure), and I even got to watch movies from their library, while they worked on me. Dr Mohebi's staff of technicians who assisted him on the day, Ashley, Christina, and Rizza, were very friendly, efficient, and not to mention thorough to the point of annoying in terms of the follow up, and with what I had to (and this also included all the pre-op instructions and prep I received). When I use the word "annoying" here it is meant as a *HUGE COMPLIMENT* to their thoroughness. You can tell a lot about someone from the quality of a team that they have assembled. My experiences with his technicians, and also Niki/Melissa who assisted me with the admin, speaks volumes about Dr Mohebi. The little things matter too. You have to go in on an empty stomach, but they offer you a three course tasty Persian meal (with dessert). I also appreciate that that they wash and donate the woolen blankets (that they use to cover you) to a homeless shelter. In the end they ended up using more hair grafts than they had originally estimated prior to the procedure. The tacit understanding is that I would clearly pay for any extras, however Dr Mohebi waived the extra charge. When I asked him about it afterwards, he told me that he had found two other smaller spots of scarring alopecia. Recall from above he was unsure about the suitability of a transplant for the area of scarring alopecia on my forehead. He decided to put in extra grafts in those small newly discovered areas, but not charge me because it wouldn't be fair to me if the transplants didn't last in those small areas that he himself was still unsure about. He did also perform a biopsy on the main scarred area on the forehead free-of-charge, and I am currently awaiting a pathology study on it to determine whether I can one day address that small patch with a transplant in a future visit. This story may perhaps be a bit atypical compared to some of the other threads on here, as I don't have any before/after pics, which of course is the true test of a successful hair transplant. I am after all still only on Day 4 after my procedure, and still religiously following the very thorough post-op instructions I received. However, I felt it was important to share my experience because if you are considering a hair transplant then at the very least a consultation with Dr Mohebi is well worth the investment. Incidentally, if you don't live in the LA area, note that Dr Mohebi regularly has patients from abroad and also offers travel and accommodation discounts. And finally, I am a believer in the fact that when you see a doctor for anything, the best results happen when you are working as a team with the doctor, as opposed to the doctor just doing stuff on you or to you, without you being involved in anyway. The technical term with physicians is "bedside manner" and any amount of research has shown the beneficial impacts this has -- ultimately it is your body that has to receive the treatment and "do the work" and heal and recover. The more empowered and involved you are, the better are the results and I certainly felt that way with Dr Mohebi & team. I hope this story is informative and helpful. Good luck, Batman25
  22. About me 41yo, German-Turkish, have been living in Turkey, Istanbul now for 3 years, grew up in Germany I think my crown started to get thinner in my earlier 20s and got completely bald a few years later. It bothers me the most. Later, also the frontal hairline started to recede but fortunately the bridge remained in place - except some slight thinning. Since I always had a high forehead it doesn´t bother me too much and the focus will be on the crown area. Little work is planned for the hairline. In 2001, I had a pretty severe car accident, which may have triggered some hair loss as well. In my earlier 20s, as soon as the hair loss started, I used to wear a cap or applied lots of chemicals like spray and other styling products to my hair. This may also have contributed to the hair loss. Difficult to say. At that time, I was already having some thoughts about hair transplantation, however financial reasons stopped me :-) Another reason that I didn´t do it was the strip technique, which, to be honest, frightened me and still frightens me. FUE is the technique I go for. Doctor Dr. Gökhan Gür (Turkey, Istanbul) I have been working for Health Travels (Medical Tourism Agency) for 9 months now and take care of their foreign patients coming to Dr. Gür for a transplant. Therefore, I had a great chance to see his work and results, which convinced me to finally do it 😊 Planning Together with Dr. Gür we analysed my donor area. Approx. 3500-4000 grafts are possible. It will be a two days session. Approx. 1600-1800 to the hairline and 2000+ to the Crown area. After one year I may add a small session to increase the density. Approx. 1500-2000 grafts (depending on my donor area). I would like to be able to wear my hair short at the donor area. Dr. Gür will extract all grafts personally and create the recipient sites. 2-3 nurses assist him. He only treats 1 patient per day. Medical treatment I won´t use Finasteride, but Minoxidil 5%. Some PRP sessions are planned as well. Especially for my slightly thin bridge area. Photos Attached
  23. Hello! I am a Patient of Dr. Panine and reviewing my personal experience of Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) Hair Transplant. I am twenty-six years old with 3 transitioning to 3A on the hair loss chart (You can see where my hair was at with the first photo of my first consultation) . I started losing my hair around early twenties. As the years went by and my hair loss progressed, I tried to do minoxidil 5% liquid form during the last seven months. Eventually, I came to the realization my hair will never be what it once was, so, I decided to do a Hair Transplant and started researching. I currently live in Chicago, IL and went online to see what my options were. I first decided to understand what a hair transplant is and what kinds of treatments option I have. I found a few people who had alright reviews but after consulting with them about everything I felt they weren't the right person for me to do this with. I am a not a fan of any type of surgery and wanted to make sure I went to someone with the same vision and had a well known reputation. More then a few consultations later, I stumbled on to Dr. Panine. He had great before and afters and not a bad review to be found and I definitely searched pretty well like I did with the others. Everyone said " He was an Artist when it came to hairlines.", "Great job and made sure I was okay the whole time.", "He was their the whole time." etc... I decided to give him a chance and got in contact with his assistant, Stuart. Stuart was very professional and well knowledgeable about everything. You'd think that would be a giving but the other places really missed the mark on that. He told me in detail about everything and proceeded to show me before and after photos, which they were all very realistic and had a great result overall. I met Dr. Panine afterwards and he was very nice guy. He really made sure to talk about what I am looking for and adding his own artistic vision to create a realistic hairline without me going overboard on my idea. He and I came to a compromise and I really like what he had to say and came up with and decided to go with him. I followed the pre op instructions until the day of the procedure and came in to the office at the time scheduled. I met up with one of the assistants there who was also very kind. She gave me the paper work and helped set me up for everything. Stuart took some before photos and talked to me about it all. Dr. Panine came in said hello and proceeded sketched out the line and made sure I was good with the placement. As the surgery began, he made sure to explain everything and really made sure that I was comfortable as possible throughout it all. I also like to mention that he was there the whole time. When I talked to other doctors about this, they said the assistant would be doing a good amount of the work, which made me uncomfortable but made me really happy/apprecaitive with Dr.Panine. Dr.Panine assistants' were great also! Checked up on me a lot and asked me how I was doing. They would put their hand on my arm gently when they had to extractions or do something and it really soothed and made me feel a lot more comforted. They had gotten me a sandwich of my choice, when they took a miniature break and talked to me about what else they had to do. The process took about fifteen hours and I had more then 2,500 grafts. Dr. Panine work every second of the way with his assistants' for hours and they did an amazing job. Stuart did some post op pictures which I posted. The next day, I came back in to check everything as asked, which everything was Great! I am very happy with the results so far. I highly recommended Dr. Panine and have a lot of people excited to see my hair grow. Here are some photos of my head also, three days after and I’ll be continuing the photo progression. Here’s day 5 going onto 6. (11th-12th photo) Ten Day mark (13-16 photo) Thank you for reading this review and hope this will help your decision. Thank you Stuart and Dr.Panine!
  24. Thanks to this forum, it helped me a lot. Had my HT on 3 and 4 July. 32 years old. Taking 1.25mg Fin starting from the day of surgery.
