Advice for Hair Loss Sufferers Considering Hair Transplant Surgery


My Story

  1. I arrived to Istanbul on 15th of January 2017 before midnight, after previous online consultation, booking an appointment and paying deposit. I choosed Asmed and Dr. Erdogan for theses reasons: 1. In that time Asmed almost hadn´t bad results on HT forums, 2. on their website they wrote, that they have interpreter from my native language (it wasn´t true), 3. I had good flight conection to Istanbul. After arrival the driver of Asmed clinic wait for me and my patient coordinator Sevinc called me to say welcome in Istanbul and to give me informations about my stay. On the second day, 16th of January 2017, in the afternoon I had an appoitment in Asmed clinic, where I filled the questionary and met Dr. Erdogan. He spoke with me for a while and draw me the hairline. I told him my expectations. Than they made pictures of me and my hair condition and cut my hair for 2 mm. Dr. Erdogan check my donor and said that I need 4500 grafts for hairline and vertex. Previous number of grafts after online consultation was 4000 – 4200 grafts. After that I payed rest of ammount (tottaly 11.250,- Eur for HT). Than Dr. Erdogan came and draw new hairline, but I didn't agree with it. He said that this hairline perfect suits me and asked the staff if he is right. Of course that nobody said that it is not true. Maybe it was my fault but I didn't know that this is final hairline for surgery and I expected that before surgery he draw me new hairline. I found out it next day, but it couldn't be changed (hairline is much worse as he drawed). I had my HT surgery on 17th and 18th of January 2017. Dr. Erdogan made just incisions and the rest (hair harvesting and implantation) were made by stuff. One of them told me that my grafts are perfect quality and my result will be great. After finishing my HT I look to the mirror and I saw that my hairline is wrong and unnaturall. Dr. Erdogan saw that I was not satisfied with my hairline and told that it is due the swelling and when hair start growing it will be fine. On 19th of January 2017 Dr. Erdogan checked the result and I came home. I started to use finasteride 1mg daily from the surgery. I sent my pictures to Asmed after one month, after 3 months and after 6 months from the surgery and they always wrote me back that everything is ok. After 11 months I saw that my transplanted area is still lack and result is bad, therefor I wrote to the Asmed and sent them pictures. They (Sevinc) wrote me that it is normal and everybody has different hair growth and I have to wait to the end of 18 month from HT and if my transplanted area will be still lack I have to write them and they offer me a solution. After 18 months my transplanted area was still lack and there were no improvement, therefor I wrote to Asmed another mail with pictures and asked them why my result is so weak and where the mistake happened. I was very suprised when they asked me to fill new questionary and to send them another pictures. My surprise was much bigger when they wrote me that I need another HT with 2500 grafts, which will be cost 6.250,- Euros. I have been in Istanbul again in August 2018 and I wrote to Asmed and asked them to arrange an apointment with Dr. Erdogan. They wrote me back that Dr. Erdogan is busy due the moving of clinic and he has no time to meet me. After time I published few pictures of my result on this forum with asking for opinion and I was contacted from Asmed for informations who am I and when I had HT in their clinic. I send them answears and they asked me for pictures of current condition of my hair, which I sent them, but I didn't get response. After 3 weeks I wrote them that I didn't get any response and they wrote me that they sent me response on my email adress but I didn't get it. After few days they wrote me that Dr. Erdogan checked my pictures and my result is normal and it was caused due stopped using finasteride (I have using Propecia for 18 months from the surgery). I wrote them that it can't be true, because my original hair are fine and my transplanted area are lack. Also the condition of my hair was same after 11 and after 18 months when I took Propecia, and now when I don't take Propecia. If it will be true, than my transplanted area will be fine and original hair will be lack. I wrote it them and they asked me for another set of pictures which Dr. Erdogan will check again and tell me the best solution. Therefor I sent them another set of pictures with current condition of my hair, but they didn't response for a month. I wrote them that I didn't get response and they wrote me that they sent me response on my email adress but I didn't get it. Another day they wrote me that hair behind the frontline started shedding when I stopped finasteride. Therefore it does not support the frontal part and this is why it looks as it does. I sent them once again set of my pictures and wrote them that I was on finasteride from my surgery to the end of 18 month since surgery and asked them, if bad result of HT in 11 month since surgery and in 17 and 18 month since surgery, where the same weak result was visible is caused by discontinuation of using finasteride after 18 months and asked them where is area of shaded hair after discontinuation of finasteride, which they mentioned. They wrote me back on 13th February 2020, that they will have a meeting with Dr. Erdogan to my case next day (14th February) and they let me know. Because I didn´t get any response I wrote them on 6th March what is happened. They wrote me back, that they had meeting, but Dr. Erdogan had to go to Mexico for the FUE workshop and they didn´t write the report and they think that I need another HT with 2500 grafts (the didn´t mentioned if free HT). I wrote them back that I still don´t know what is the reason of my terrible result of HT. They wrote me back that no using of finasteride is one of the reason and the exact reason is possible to say after analysis in live. On 8th March 2020 Melvin Moderator contacted me and he asked me for informations about my HT and than he wrote to Asmed. On 12th of March Asmed contacted me that Dr. Erdogan will analyze my photos once again and they let me know. Today is 11th April and nothing has change. Nobody from Asmed contacted me for another month. After 3 years and 4 months since my HT I still don´t know what is the reason of my terrible HT result. But I know that the reason is not discontinuation of using finasteride after 18 months since surgery, because the result in 11 month since surgery, 17 and 18 month since surgery and also now is the same. I don´t know if I should wait for some response from Asmed, but I don´t believe for something serious from them because I see that they try to delegate resposibility to my person and dicontinuation of finasteride after 18 months since surgery. And this is NOT the reason! I understood that they didn't want to help me to fix my weak result, but the purpose why they contacted me was to stop me to write negative things about Asmed clinic. From my HT I checked a lot of web sites and forums with this problematic and I saw a lot of results of another surgeons and clinic (in many cases "no name" surgeons and clinics) on theses forums and also on their web sites, where I saw a lot of similar hair loss cases like mine which are great and were solved with less numbers of grafts and I understood that I that I made a big mistake, when I decided to go to Asmed. Density of my frontal area is lack, shape of my hairline is unnatural with gap on one side and total result of my HT is weak and bad. One thing is the result. But another thing is attitude of clinic to their result. And the attitude of Asmed to my result is unethical and unprofessional. I usually do good decisions in my life and just a few of my decisions I consider as bad. But decision about going to Asmed and Dr. Erdogan for hair transplant I consider the worst in my life...
  2. Hello there guys, I have been following and researching for a couple of months. I have been following along in this forum for couple of weeks and read a lot of some of the different journeys. I must say I’ve learned a lot and thanks all for sharing. After contacting several clinics in turkey, I think I wrote to like 7-8 clinics (before I knew something called hair mill clinics) I was about to book with either Vera Clinic or Dr serkan Aygin as i saw that they had won the European Awards in Medicine 2020/21 in hair transplant but than I realized that not many recommended the clinic and was also was called a hair mill. So I have booked with Dr Yaman, after seeing that he is recommend on here and read all the comments about the clinic. Now when the time is coming up I feel little anxious and been wondering how the team is, I’m a little worried because he doesn’t do the whole surgery, only the incision. How is his team? They are not mentioned as much as Dr yaman. I just hope I will not regret this. And I’m not sure which package to choose. The sapphire fue or DHI. And also the DHI is a special Yaman DHI implanter. What are the differences between his and the other DHI used in other clinics? I’m 27 years old and dr yaman suggest to do around 4500 grafts. The cost of the Sapphire FUE 2000$ And DHI with Yaman implanter 2900$. 900$ is a quite difference. What do you guys think? And thanks in advance
  3. I recently went to Dr Cinik’s clinic for a hair transplant. I am completely aware it is considered a hair mill and so will take my results with a pinch of salt, as I understand they will likely not be comparable to that of someone else who has visited the clinic. Day 1 I arrived at SAW at around 7am and headed outside to try and find my transport. It is quite chaotic out there, especially after a red eye flight where you have not managed to sleep. It took around 5-10 minutes for the car to arrive and I was then driven straight to the clinic. Once I arrived they provided me with a sandwich, some juice and a cake. After around a 20 minute wait I was taken to have my blood test and ECG. Once this had been completed I was told that I would be returning at 4pm for my consultation so I was dropped to the hotel where I caught up on sleep for a few hours. The hotel facilities were very nice and a lot more upscale than I expected, I also brought my girlfriend with me and it was easy to add her on to the room for only €10 per night. I was picked up and taken back to the clinic at 4pm. Firstly they examined my hair follicles in the donor area with some kind of high resolution/microscopic camera. I then had a brief consultation with Dr Cinik (3-5 mins) where he looked at pictures of my previous hairline and drew a new one on. Following this I had some ‘before’ pictures taken by their photographer and left to go back to my hotel. My girlfriend and I decided to head out to get some dinner from the surrounding area as there were quite a few restaurants dotted around, however just as I was leaving I received a call from the clinic stating that I had left earlier without paying for my surgery. When booking I was told that payment should be made on the day of however I was advised that as they planned to start so early the next day (7am) I should have paid the day before. Unfortunately no one made this clear to me and so a driver was sent to take me back to the clinic in order to make the payment. When I arrived at the clinic the staff seemed confused as to why I was paying the day before the surgery however I advised that as I had already come all the way back I would like to just make the payment at that point. They were more than accommodating and sorted this out and then dropped me back at my hotel. Day 2 I was being picked up at 6:45 so needed to wake up quite early in order to try and fit some breakfast in. Much to my detriment I didn’t have much of an appetite at that time. I was picked up promptly and arrived at the clinic where I had my hair cut. The techs then began giving me the pain free anaesthesia (a freebie as part of my package) and massaged this in to my head for a while. It definitely wasn’t painful, more slightly irritating (like being pinged with a rubber band). Whilst waiting for this to kick in they attempted to place a cannula in my vein for an IV. The first tech had a lot of trouble finding a vein in either of my arms and had to call in a colleague to assist. The second tech was also having no luck with finding a vein and so they had to insert it in to my hand, which they advised me would be a lot more painful. This whole ordeal made me very nervous as I felt like nobody knew what they were doing (probably somewhat exacerbated by me foolishly reading bad reviews of Cinik the night before my surgery). I think the techs could see I was pretty clammy and nervous so at this point they gave me a ‘relax’ tablet. I have no idea what this was however it looked a little like a Valium. After this it was time to begin injecting the actual anaesthetic in to my scalp. The pain of this was unbearable and I was writhing around in the chair. I honestly thought I was going to end up with some form of PTSD due to the pain of this. Luckily the tablet started to kick in a little which helped to calm my nerves, just not the pain. The tech administering the injections was very attentive and sympathetic and she stopped halfway through to give me a break and massage my head. They also gave me a cake and some water as I probably looked like I was going to pass out from the pain (if only I had managed a bigger breakfast haha). My scalp was definitely becoming more numb so the second half of the injections was a lot more tolerable. After this the extraction process began which was completely pain free (only slightly eerie when you can hear the follicle being plucked out with the tweezers). My memory of events become a little hazy after this point as I was hooked up to the drip containing god knows what painkillers (but I’m certainly not complaining). I had paid extra for Dr Cinik to open the channels himself so he came in at this stage and performed that part. I had also paid a little extra for my beard to be thickened so the channels on my face were opened too. After this it was time for lunch, which I actually rather enjoyed. I was served some juice, salad, bread, rice and beef kofta. It was a little hard to chew due to my face being so numb from the anaesthetic in my beard area but that was only a minimal issue. Now came time to place the grafts, during which I was hooked back up to the drip so slept for the majority of this. I could definitely sense a mixture of more and less experienced techs (4 in total) performing the procedure. From my impression it felt as though the more experienced tech was working on my beard and hairline which made me feel a little more confident, although I suppose the proof will be in the end result! The techs (especially the more experienced seeming lady) seemed really pleased with their work once the procedure had finished so that also helped me feel a little more comfortable. I really can’t fault how attentive they all were and whilst there was a language barrier they tried their hardest to engage in conversation and make sure I was as comfortable and relaxed as possible. Once the surgery was completed I met with one of the sales reps who provided me with my medications, hair was serums etc and provided instructions on how to sleep that night. I was dropped back to my hotel at around 4pm and slept for the remainder of the day. It was a struggle to get to sleep that night, due to the upright position. The sleeping pills they provided did not have much of an effect either. There was a lot of plasma leakage from the donor area during the night which was also quite unpleasant to try and sleep in. Day 3 I was picked up at 9am for a hair wash. The washing of the transplanted area was fine but wow the donor area was so tender. I thought I may pass out from the pain. Luckily it was over within a few minutes. I also had laser light therapy which was a freebie as part of my packaged and lasted about 15 mins. Returned to the hotel after around 45 mins and relaxed for the day. Day 4 I spent the morning in the hotel and was picked up early afternoon for a final hair wash. I was taken promptly to the airport and flew home in the evening. All in all it was a pretty well streamlined process. Now we just need to wait for the results! Here are a few before pictures: I was initially quoted as requiring ~2,500 grafts however in the end they (allegedly) placed ~3,500 in my head. They also implanted a further 600 in my beard. These are the post surgery photos and some of the donor area for anyone who is curious:
  4. Hello, I am new to the forum and hopefully looking to absorb as much information as possible. I have become absorbed into trying to find out as much as i can about temple restoration and want to offer a bit of background. My temples began to recede extremely early on. As much as i would say from 16/17 and i knew the density and stuff was completely going in the wrong direction and would say by 18/19 it was pretty much weak as you could probably go. So essentially right now, if you look at some hairlines that have completely lost their temporal points, that's what mine is like. I have now through a lot of searching found that the answer may lie very much in a concentrated and area specific form of Retrograde Alopecia on the sideburns where the temporal points were. My frontal hairline was and generally is well. I would say over the last decade, i've had minimal recession looking back at photos from when i was 21 to now at 31+. I had a quotation from a well known and respected place that's been used by some here and the photos i sent, they identified the the frontal hairline zone to have circa 1200-1500 grafts and quoted me as needing about 250 grafts (all singles) to reconstruct the temple points. The temple points being as they are is my biggest and largest concern in a hair transplant and having them reconstructed with an appropriate looking density. They said they aim for about 30 square CM for the temples and 40-45 square CM for the frontal hairline. My hair personally i feel is more on the finer side, but without a trichologist checking, i can't say for 100% and could be even classed as medium hair. So, with that said, i wanted the opinion of others on whether 250 grafts would provide a dense enough look to the temple points. I'm attaching a picture to show the temples. They're near identical on both sides. The lines provided were originally from the clinic but i have added the darker line to indicate where i actually wanted to adjust the angle of the temporal point. I know some might not agree with it not being as sharp and closer to a more vertical line, but it's literally the biggest insecurity i've had since being young and now at 30+ with stable hair loss and recently being on Dutatesteride and having had stabilisation showing, i feel like i have a longer term potential with it largely having been stable for hair loss for near a decade from like a Norwood 1 to maybe Norwood 2 in very subtle ways without any medication. As an extra tidbit, i have a good beard, and body hair galore should that be necessary but i am looking for a strong frontal hair and temporal restoration.
  5. 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
  6. Hello Everyone, I’m 26 years old & I come from Wisconsin, USA. I’m here to share my hair restoration journey with you guys. I got my first hair transplant procedure done back when I was 24 years old. It was an FUE procedure where they did around ~1000 grafts for my hairline. Back then I had not done a lot of research & decided to settle for a clinic in Florida. It was not the best of experiences for me as for some reason the post-op period was a lot more painful, more importantly after 6-8 months of the surgery I noticed that my hairline seemed rather unnatural, basically too spotty. Not happy with the results, I decided to research on YouTube for getting a corrective surgery done for my hairline & frontal area. After going through a lot of videos I felt that Eugenix had produced by far the best results & hence I decided to get in touch with their medical representative. I was given an evaluation of ~2900 grafts for my entire frontal area which was different & quite conservative compared to what I had initially thought. As far as travel to India & my procedure is concerned, the hardest part was getting here owing to the distance I had to cover, however, I am glad I made that decision since everything else was extremely smooth and professional. Right from my pick up at the Airport to my hotel stay and the procedure at the clinic, it was all well taken care of. I went for the premium package with Dr Arika. The designing & planning session was very satisfying, best part being that I was indeed able to envision the results during this pre-operative session itself. I will be posting my progress here & update you about the entire journey going forward, regarding which I’m already very hopeful. Also, just FYI, I've been on finasteride 1mg for 4 years now & would be continuing with medicatin to support my resluts.
  7. After much hysteria on the forum, this issue has to be addressed. Anyone reading this that is interested in getting a hair transplant, it will either deter you away from one or entice you. If it does either my job is done. First of all, pictures can be deceiving both to present good and bad results. However, most only think that pictures can be deceiving to present good results, this is not true. I would like to start off by saying, I’m ecstatic about my hair transplant and it has changed my life, but I do not have true density. I have the “illusion of density” meaning I have to comb my hair a certain way and have it dry for my hair to lookst its best, but certainly it can look bad if I intentionally try too. I will be writing an article on this, because it is important to get out there. I’ve always said, id rather someone not get an HT if they’re not gonna be satisfied with the reality. Here are my pictures first one hairline spread apart in bright light looks horrible. Second one in normal room lighting, but not facing the light. Third one in bathroom lighting, with the light source behind the hair. See how each lighting changes the appearance and also how combing and layering the hair provides “illusion” of density.
  8. Here are the results of a recent Dr. Mohebi patient 12 months after the procedure - and I'm personally quite fond of the widow's peak design in the hairline. Video and photos below:
  9. Dear forum members/viewers, This patient is from London and underwent FUE hair transplant by Dr Arshad in our West Yorkshire surgery centre. The results below are shown 9 months after surgery. This patient is happy to share his experience and has posted his journey on his Instagram account ( @pearcemcdonough )along with a comb through video that he has taken himself. Graft count: Soft single FU - 74 Medium single FU - 223 Large single FU - 43 Double hair FU - 1604 Triple/+ hair FU - 1000 Total = 2944 Meds - Finasteride 1mg / Minoxidil 5% PLEASE NOTE: Individual patient results and the onset/rate of growth from transplanted grafts may vary considerably between patients. The overall yield and appearance of density from a hair transplant is dependent on many factors including but not limited to: The extent of surface area that requires grafting (most patients with advanced hair loss will require 2 surgeries to reach reasonably good density). The blood supply to a particular area of the scalp (this varies from patient to patient). The extent and duration of the inflammatory response of the scalp post operative (this varies from patient to patient, in patients with persisting perifollicular erythema post operatively we recommend use of Ketoconazole 2% Shampoo). The texture, size and colour of the hair (large hair calibre provides better coverage, lighter skin to darker hair colour contrast requires more grafts for appearance of density). The innate ability of the hair follicles to withstand the trauma of surgery (this varies from patient to patient & also from different regions of the scalp within the same individual). The use of medications pre and post operatively (oral and topical DHT blockers, finasteride, Minoxidil and other anti-androgens). External factors such as environmental stresses/smoking etc. Regards, The Hair Dr Clinic
  10. Hi all, I'm completely new to this forum and would really appreciate some help. This might be a bit of a long post but I want to include as much relevant info as possible. A bit about me: I'm 26, male, mixed ethnicity (Black and Greek), curly/wave hair type (curly hair when wet, frizzy-ish when dry) based in the UK near London. I've been experiencing hair loss for over 7 years now - I would say this has been stable for about 5 years. My hairline is basically non existent (I'd say I'm 2 on the Norwood scale). To cover up my hair loss I use hair fibres, but they always end up looking gross after a few hours once my scalp gets oily – I'm honestly just so sick of having to cover it up. I'm looking for a permanent solution so I can get my confidence back and not have to be constantly anxious about the wind, rain or sweat exposing my scalp. Currently I'm considering an FUE hair transplant. Please can you guys help me to find a reputable doctor/clinic that has proven experience with curly or afro hair types? I have been researching different companies in the UK but a lot of them just seem to only post results of patients with straight hair – this is really discouraging. I'm going to continue doing research, but if anyone could share their success (or horror) stories then that would be extremely helpful. I would also consider getting a hair transplant in Turkey, but a few people have told me that it's hit or miss and I could end up with a botched job. Ideally I would like to find a UK based clinic, though it'll be more expensive I'm more concerned with getting a result that I'll actually be happy with. Thanks in advance. MixedGuyUK
  11. Joe Buck is an acclaimed sportscaster known for his work as the lead announcer for both baseball and football for Fox Sports. The 52-year-old is also well-known for the changes in his hairline thanks to multiple hair transplants over the years. While many patients only have one hair transplant surgery to get the results they desire, Joe has undergone multiple procedures in the past including one that impacted his ability to speak. Joe Buck recently made the decision to undergo another hair transplant using the services of Dr. Mohebi and our Los Angeles hair transplant team. Our staff has put together a behind the scenes video spotlighting Joe Buck’s latest procedure. Dr. Mohebi also explains why older hair transplant techniques, such as the ones Joe had in the past, led to complications with patients and why they are not used by medical professionals anymore. This informative video takes patients inside our Los Angeles surgical center for a look at how Joe’s hair transplant surgery is performed. The patient is also a big part of the video as Joe shares his thoughts about the surgery before, during and after the procedure. Stay tuned for updates as Joe's results start to come in over the following months, and feel free to ask any questions below about this procedure, and Dr. Mohebi and I will be sure to answer.
  12. A young male with NH Grd II baldness presented to us with the complaint of hair loss for the past three years. He underwent hair transplant by Bio FUE technique with 1565 grafts. We are hereby sharing his results 1 year post surgery.
  13. Let me start by saying I met or talked with via zoom over 15 drs and I watched tons of videos on youtube and researched off and on for about 3-4 years before I pulled the trigger , many of the clinics I have met have high level marketing/sales tactics which is an instant turn off for me... also many drs also dont talk about future loss and how to plan for it not just with preventive care but also with how many grafts to move to what areas in each transplant and why... Dr Panine was one of the few high level world renonwn drs that did this and he also gave me 4 people I could call and talk to all that had similar hair loss and similar hair to mine both color and skin tone so that I had the most realistic possible expectations of what could be accomplished. This + the fact dr Panine is hands on with every part of the procedure is why I chose him. surgery day I felt relaxed and comfortable with everything including the fact that I felt 0 pain I can remember a few times feeling very minor discomfort like a pinch and each time he instantly numbed me so I had 0 discomfort. after surgery they obviously ensured my friend was called to pick me up at the proper time and then followed up the next day for a hair wash... one thing that really sets great American drs apart from larger facilities that do lots of transplants is the after care follow up both Stuart & dr Panine ensure they get back to me with in hours of me texting or calling with any questions or issues... this may not seem like a big deal but when your spending alot of money and having a new cosmetic surgery for the first time having them so patient and attentive was a major stress saver in the first few months of the transplant they also do 3,6,9,&12 month check ups which is awesome! I am currently coming up on month 10 and I actually filmed my journey to help people & posted it on my YouTube channel Hair Transplant Reality if you want to see the surgery and the follow up visits etc I post 4-8 times per month I hope my videos can help you in your journeys! CHEERS!

  15. Hello there folks - long time lurker in this forum. I finally decided to go in for my procedure this week. I chose Dr. Scott Alexander in Phoneix for my procedure. I had consulted with a few other doctors as well, and all of them gave me pretty much the same recommendations (except one): 1. Dr. Blake Bloxham - 2500 - 3000 FUT 2. Dr. Jae Pak - 2000 - 2500 FUT 3. Dr. Sahar Nadimi(Konior) - 2500 - 3000 FUT 4. Dr. Shaver (Bernstein) - 2500 FUT 5. Dr. Hasson - 5000 FUE 6. Dr. Alexaner 3000+FUT I also tried contacting Dr. Gabel a couple of times, but didn't get a response. I decided to go in with Dr. Alexander because of his excellent results that look extremely natural. Also, he was closer to me than the others (I live in NorCal) I am not going to bore you all with the details of my history - but just a quick background - Norwood 5A, Age 28 and been on Fin for past 1.5 years. I initially had a FaceTime consult with Dr. Alexander where he examined my hair and answered any questions I had. He recommended a 3000+ FUT as a first procedure to address the hairline and frontal scalp. And another 3000+ FUT after a year for the crown area. I booked a procedure date with him for Sept 10th. Since he had not physically seen me before, I was asked to come in the day before my procedure. He examined my donor and drew the hairline he thought would look good. I liked the design. I was out in about 20 minutes. The next day I was asked to be in the clinic at 7.30 AM. I was kinda nervous in the beginning. I had to sign some paperwork and they offered me a Xanax (which I refused). I then went in to meet Dr. Alexander. He started by drawing the hairline again. A few changes and we were ready to start. I was numbed at the back and he started to cut out the strip. This took about an hour. I was told I have thick skin. LOL (turns out my Mom was right all these years) Dr. Alexander then started stitching me up. He uses two layers of stitches. This procedure took about 1.5 hours. In the meantime, his techs started dissecting the strip in the next room. I was also asked for my choice of lunch. Next, I was numbed up in the front. Dr. then started making the incisions into which he would place the grafts. He told me he wanted to concentrate and not to talk to him. I selected a movie, and let him do his work. This took about 2-3 hours. I then had a quick lunch and went back into the procedure room. The techs then started placin the grafts into my head. Dr. Alexander only came in to numb me up when needed. The techs took turns working on me (about 4 of them in total, 2 of them planting hairs at one time). This took about 3.5 hours. I finally finished around 5.40 PM. A couple of tips for others looking to have a HT soon: 1. Eat well the morning of your procedure. I usually do not eat breakfast. But since this was a big day, I had a light breakfast (I couldnt eat well because I'm not used to it and I was nervous). Even though you are sitting the whole day, you get exhausted. Also its good to eat well as you will be medicated. So make sure you have a good breakfast. 2. A neck pillow is a lifesaver for the first few nights after the procedure. It prevents your implanted area from rubbing against the bed/pillow and gives you good neck support. Below are pre-op photos: Hairline design: After Incisions before graft implants (during lunch): Immediately post Op: Day 1 Post OP after rinsing the area: Donor area (not the best pic): Day 2 post Op: That's all for now. Will keep this thread updated as often as possible.
  16. Hi everyone! As some of you may know, Dr. Mohebi has recently partnered with fellow hair transplant surgeon Dr. Manu Gujrati, (aka Dr. G 😎), and he's recently decided to get a hair transplant with Dr. Mohebi. ("How the turn tables", for those of you who enjoy a reference from The Office. Lol.) We'll be documenting the entire process as he moves through all the stages of his hair restoration journey, and I'm excited for all of us, myself included, to get to know him better along the way. Read on below to learn more about Dr. G, and to hear what he and Dr. Mohebi have to say about his upcoming procedure. I'll be keeping this thread updated with photos, videos, and announcements should anyone want to follow along! - Brent/pkipling Hair Transplant Surgeon Becomes a Hair Restoration Patient For more than 10 years, Dr. Manu Gujrati has helped patients gain the full head of natural looking hair they have long desired. As the Medical Director of Parsa Mohebi Hair Restoration in Northern California, he passionately enjoys working with patients from all walks of life. Now, Dr. G is getting ready to take a step rarely seen before in the hair transplant community: The physician is about to become the patient….and he invites you to follow him on his hair transplant journey! “I know that some people hesitate to take the step towards hair restoration surgery and I want them to have a real view of what it is like,” Dr. G says. “Plus, this is the ultimate way for me to truly understand what my patients go through by actually stepping into their shoes.” Dr. G Hair Restoration Journey In early March of this year, Dr. G will travel from his home base of San Francisco to Los Angeles to undergo a hair transplant with his fellow surgeon and practice partner, Dr. Parsa Mohebi. The team that works hand-in-hand with Dr. G while routinely performing hair transplant surgeries for his patients will now be trusted to do the very same for him! According to Dr. G, his decision to have hair restoration surgery has been some time in the making. He feels that now is the right time for him (personally and professionally) to have the procedure. He is also thrilled to be able to share his story with you as the Parsa Mohebi Hair Restoration team will document the journey with exclusive videos and other behind the scenes info about each step of the process. We will visit Dr. G at his home and office as he prepares for the procedure. We will also hear, in his own words, what the prospect of the hair restoration surgery means to him and why this is the perfect moment for him to undergo hair transplant surgery. We will also show you the meeting between Dr. Mohebi and Dr. G when Dr. G travels to our Los Angeles hair restoration center. These two experienced hair transplant surgeons are colleagues and talk on a regular basis about their experiences at our Los Angeles hair transplant center and our San Francisco hair restoration medical office. Their relationship will be taking on a different aspect as Dr. G puts himself in the medical care of Dr. Parsa Mohebi. Dr. G and Dr. Mohebi Discuss the Upcoming Hair Transplant Procedure When asked why he chose Dr. Mohebi to perform his hair transplant, Dr. G said “The idea of having my own hair transplant has been on my radar for a little while. I have had the opportunity to meet many talented and experienced surgeons over the years but the timing never felt right to have the procedure. I got to know Dr. Mohebi and joined the team at Parsa Mohebi Hair Restoration. While getting to know Dr. Mohebi on a personal level, I have observed that we share the same passion for providing the best results for our patients. After having many private conversations about the level of caring and commitment we both have for our patients, the idea of taking this journey together was an obvious decision.” “I felt a full range of emotions when discussing this idea with him,” Dr. Mohebi said of Dr. G joining the list of his doctor patients. “I was both flattered that he chose me as his surgeon and excited to help him achieve his hair restoration goals. I was also touched that he was willing to share his story with me that went all the way back to one of his very first haircuts as a young child. We talked about his family, his religion and the reasons why he waited until now to have a hair transplant.” Los Angeles Hair Transplant for a Good Cause Dr. Mohebi pointed out, “I was also moved to hear he wants to donate his current long locks of hair to a charity that makes wigs for those that are lacking in hair due to medical reasons or cancer. That is so inspiring! I was already a fan of Dr. G as a person and a medical professional but the chance to take this journey with him is one that I never expected!” Dr. G Shares His Story with the Public Dr. G realizes he is in a unique position when it comes to being able to share his hair restoration experience with others. “My hair transplant surgery puts me in an educational position that not many others surgeons are able to experience. The process of having a hair restoration procedure is very scary and intimidating to some people. They are not sure what is involved as well as what to expect before, during and after the surgery. I am looking forward to being able to share my personal story with patients to give them an inside view of what they will experience physically and emotionally. If my personal journey can help someone make the decision to gain the hairline they have always desired, I am more than happy to put their mind at ease.” Along with sharing his journey through videos and blogs, Dr. G will also be hosting a Reddit AMA in the near future. “There are many Reddit users that often post questions in hair loss forums. They would benefit from hearing from a hair transplant surgeon that also had the same concerns about his hairline and decided to do something about it. The education opportunities are endless with my upcoming hair transplant procedure.”
  17. A 28 year old male came to us for hair transplant consultation. He had tried medications which had stopped his hair fall but he wanted to cover the frontal area. So, Bio FUE was done in him for the frontal part with 2500 grafts. The patient is happy with the results one year post hair transplant.
  18. Some background: 28, Male Hair loss noticeable since 21 Hair loss seems to be heavy diffuse thinning, combined with hairline/temple regression Started finasteride and am currently on it for about 2 months Asian hair, fine, thin Got on a call with Dr. Diep and he quoted two options: 2250 FUE ($17,000) or 2500 FUT ($13,000). What would this forum recommend? Some thoughts and questions: As a diffuse thinner, I'm weary of my donor area being overharvested during FUE. I'm open to multiple surgeries over time. Thus, FUT seems better. I'm seeing a lot of people being quoted ~3000-3500 grafts for FUT. I was only quoted 2500 FUT. Any theories why? After seeing Diep's YT videos and being located near his office, I am excited to choose Diep. However, there are a few negative reviews about him on this forum. Should I exercise caution and look into another doctor? Diep seems to specialize in hairline and I definitely need one. How bad is Diep's FUT scar? After surgery, is it particularly gnarly and eventually heals into something more acceptable over time? I live with family and don't want to come home sporting a bloody, mangled scar. Any Asians who did FUT or FUE with Diep and would recommend? I am desperate to look for success stories for people similar to me and my loss pattern. I could write an essay on how miserable this HL process has been, but I'm happy to have this forum and look forward to everyone's input and help. Thanks!
  19. I’d considered doing something about my genetic baldness for years. But the truth is I felt awkward discussing something that personal with someone else… I didn’t want them thinking I was too vain or pre-occupied with my hair. Talking over the phone with Dr. Suneet Soni broke the barrier. He immediately appealed to me as a friendly, honest kind of person who understands how people feel about their appearance. He confirmed me about the aesthetic result and prepared me for the surgical procedure. Initially, I had many doubts and confusion, but all went off after receiving the pre-procedure consultation at Medispa. Before visiting Dr. Suneet Soni, a few others had turned my way, saying that essentially my situation was hopeless. I remember leaving their clinics with a great feeling of dread and sadness at the prospect of living with a hat on my head for the rest of my years. From the moment I met Dr. Suneet Soni he gave me a feeling of great hope though I remained somewhat skeptical. He explained to me to need to be self-restraint as the FUT technique of hair restoration would be a 5 steps process to do it. I appreciated his reluctance to not do it all at once, get his money, and move on… though I wanted it fixed for the very next day! Glad to say that I received 4120 FUT grafts in a single session for the grade NW-V baldness. Finally, Dr. Suneet was the first transplant surgeon I ever met who did not discuss his fee as his first order of service. He was very gracious with the cost of hair transplant and allowed a modest cost of the procedure. Bottom line is that I genuinely felt and still feel that he wants to help me and understands my situation. He is down to earth, friendly and best of all… accessible. His entire staff has been and continues to be absolutely wonderful in accommodating me and I also feel they care about the end result for me. Thank You, Dr Suneet Soni and the entire Medispa team.
  20. Hi everyone, I've been steadily losing hair since I was around 26 (I'm 32 now) and I'm weighing up my options. I'm currently toying with the idea of getting a hair transplant and then starting finasteride afterwards to help with the native hair. Looking at my pictures does this seem like a viable option, and if so, what would you estimate at a graft count? I should mention that I've never taken finasteride or minoxidil, only biotin, niacin, zinc and iron for just under a year with pretty much no results. Any input/advice would be most appreciated. Thanks for your time and I hope you're all doing well.
  21. Hello dear balding friends! A lot of you guys asked for it so here you go! My "quick" report I had a 2 day surgery done in Espinho, Porto, Portugal with Dr. Bruno Ferreira on 28th & 29th of January 2020. Currently resting in my hotel and since I have all the time in the world I decided to write this up - "for whom it my concern" Grab a cup of coffee/tea/whateveryouintothisdays and enjoy reading! A little bit about me 28 year old Caucasian male, Androgenic Alopecia, NW5a. Older Brother - NW 6/7, Father - NW 7-teen. To set up a base line, here's a photo of me before any hair loss (age 18). Never had extremely straight hairline (just a fact!). I've been loosing hair for the last 7-8 years, obviously not extremely excited about this fact, so when I reached NW3a i became worried. I started my research for "natural cure" and tried Detumescence Therapy (vigorous scalp massages - mechanical stimulation) for 20 minutes morning and evening 6 months straight (according to researcher after doing this type of massages you can expect to START seeing some results from 6 months onward), and then just gave up as I had big lifestyle changes all at once, so couldn't manage it. I don't want to go into detail of how it works, so google for yourself, but I strongly believe it halt my hair loss progression a bit. Years went by and I slowly started loosing more and more hair until eventually in December 2018 (that's when I began my research 24/7), when I was full blown NW5a I decided to do something about it. To keep it short, you can read my other thread on here. While I was doing some treatments, I was also heavily researching (when I say heavily, I mean - on the way to work, at work, at lunch brake, on the toilet after lunch, on the way back home, the rest of the evening, almost all weekend) Hair Transplant surgeons until end of November 2019 when I made my decision. More on that below. In this post I didn't want to go into much details (nobody would really read it for 3 hours straight!), so I kept it nice and short with my main candidates. Day 0 27.01.20 - Trip to Portugal. Quick flight from London to Porto about 2 hours. Afterwards got an Uber from airport and in 25 minutes already in my hotel 1 minute away from the clinic! Booked via Booking, quite cheap. Plenty of options. Easy task. Day 1 28.01.20 - Quick breakfast and 07:30 am @ the clinic. First impression - Super early! The whole clinic looks like closed except of Dr. Ferreira's part. In the building company Rejuvie are offering things like Aesthetic/Antiaging/Dental and many other treatments. However, don't be fooled! Dr. Bruno has his own part on ground floor where he designed everything himself from consultation room to OR. There's no other things going on in there but Hair Restoration done by Dr. Ferreira. I met his lovely team consisting of 3 nurses and Dr. Bruno himself and been directed to patients room, which is dedicated only for patients himself. They gave me a key of the door, so I wasn't worried about my belongings being there while having my operation. One of the nurses Ricardo (btw, this guys is absolutely amazing! He will take care of you every second you spent there and you will feel like you are a super star!) gave me a surgical "uniform" to change right away and shortly after Dr. Bruno came to see me to discuss procedure. Obviously while waiting I managed to snap a quick photo We discussed bits and pieces, signed needed paperwork and headed to the other room for a photo shoot. Dr. Bruno took quite a few pictures and we started planning hairline design. It took a good 15 minutes or so to finalise it. I was actually quite amazed of his attention to detail! Not a typical hairline done in 2 seconds like you see in many videos from Turkey hahaha After he showed me his final proposal I didn't even want to change a thing. It looked perfect! Now when I'm thinking it's probably because I didn't see any hairline for years , but his final design after careful examination of my facial structures was looking amazing. Afterwards we buzzed my hair completely, made some more pictures, Dr. Bruno took measurements of recipient and donor areas and we headed to the other room "on the table under the knife". As I'm writing this post I don't have any pictures made by Dr. Ferreira, so once I've got them I will update this thread. Procedure The Plan - extract and implant around 3500 grafts over 2 days Tools used - Lion Implanters, Motorised 0.85mm punch, Manual 0.85mm punch (and probably smaller, not sure, Sorry! ) (more information coming soon) Implantation approach - pre-made incisions + Implanters for the hairline and the rest using Lion Implanters alone (picture attached) Area to cover - 75 cm2 Future hair transplant area to cover (crown & mid scalp) - 75 cm2, approximately 1500-2000 grafts (more information coming soon) Donor area - around 10,000 extractable grafts, lots of multiple units (more information coming soon) Hair shaft diameter - 51 micron Picture below shows all extractions updated live by nurses on the screen next to the operation table. Now, it might look like a lot of grafts for such small area, but because my hair shaft is quite thin (~51 microns), I would need more hairs/cm2 to have great coverage. Everything started from Anaesthesia which to my surprise was almost pain-less! Dr. Bruno was using his fingers to gently massage the area while slowly inserting the needle and to my surprise that was incredibly pain-less. I asked him how is that everyone is talking about how the most painful part is anaesthesia and I almost didn't feel a thing, he replied "I'm just being very gentle". That's when I realised the difference between caring surgeon and money-making-minded surgeon. Anyways... Back of my head numb in few moments and we jumped right into extractions. The feeling of that.. Like a very quiet clippers. I kind of liked the way it feels hahaha (i guess I'm weird ). No pain. Dr. Ferreira used 0.85 mm motorised punch only because after examining my donor turned out a lot of grafts are placed almost in a straight line (e.g. 4 hair graft is not in a bunch, but in a line), thus covering bigger area, thus larger punch is needed. After all extractions been done we still had a little time before our food arrives, so Dr. Bruno decided to do some incisions for the hairline BTW selection of food was solid! Fish, Meat, Veg, Soup, Drinks, Dessert... I asked if it's possible to get Freshly Squeezed Orange Juice and turns out it was not a part of the deal, but to my surprise they got it for me! While extractions went like a knife through butter, Implantation part was quite difficult and it took much longer than expected. I had a lot of popping due to my elastic skin (damn you Detumescence therapy I guess! ) and excessive bleeding. Dr. Ferreira used "every trick in the book" (that's what he said haha) to manage the situation and by the end of the day everything looked promising. Post-op instruction and back to hotel... Had a great night sleep, 0 pain. Woke up just 2 times, so I used that opportunity to spray saline solution as per Dr.'s instructions. Day 2 29.01.20 - Arrival to clinic at the same time 07:30 am. Quick check up, donor wash and right into the action. Dr. Ferreira decided to change his approach to make implantations much smoother and avoid complications. The Plan - extract ~500 grafts and implant them immediately Total extracted grafts - 3611 Total extracted hairs - 9861 Total ratio - 2,73 Pardon me, I didn't make a picture of "Total" page! Hopefully will receive this information soon from Dr. Ferreira and will update this thread. Overall day 2 was sooooo much smoother! The new approach Dr. Bruno decided to take this day worked like wonders! Almost no popping and no excessive bleeding. Conclusion I was extremely impressed by Dr.'s adaptability to situations. Taking different approaches "on the go" to control the process. I didn't even realised at first that he was using manual punch until one moment I was like "waaaaaaaaait a second.. Something is different!". No sound, just pure manual rotating movement. I asked Dr. Bruno - "Are you using a manual punch?" to what he replied - "yes, in some places it's easier to get into with manual punch". The right tool for right situation. How about that? Anyways, here's some post-op pictures. I will keep updating this thread until final result. Also, once I've got a good quality pictures from Dr. Ferreira I will update that here. Please feel free give me your opinions! I'm super excited to finally get it done (especially the fact that I can see my hairline hahaha ).
  22. Hi guys, So I am just "another dude" with a hair loss problem like all of you here haha. I am 28, diffuse NW5 pattern. Been losing my hair since 21 years old. Once I lost my hairline completely (except forelock) i became self conscious about it and started growing out hair to cover that spot and for the last 3 years I've been doing it quite well (thanks to hair spray!). Medical Treatment This year in January I started using Minoxidil 5% with dermaroller with some good results. I felt like I'm not loosing any more hair, but actually regaining it back. You can check out my separate thread for that. After long debates I also decided to get on board with Finasteride, but started with super low dosage of 0.25 mg twice a week to check how my body will react to that. Looked like it was all good, so I increased dosage to 0.5 mg 3 times a week and eventually 1 mg/day. Been on a full dose for the last 3-4 months now and looks like it works great for me. Don't see any hairs falling out for quite some time already, so I feel my MPB is stable. At this point I believe medical therapy will keep improving my crown and mid scalp, so I just need to get the front done via HT. Today, in day to day life I'm not thinking too much about my hair, unless it's windy and it blows away my comb over and gives a great view for people of my bald front lol! That's the worst thing that's happening in my day haha. Well, anyway.. Moving on.. Hunt for a surgeon After a year of intense research, long debates and countless before & after's I finally decided to book in a surgery! Super excited to finally get it done. Originally I started looking at Turkey for it's affordability. Checked pretty much every clinic out there where Doctor is involved in surgery at some point (bypassing all these hair mills!). Learned a lot of things a long the way so it made my list much smaller. Got tons of proposals from different clinics starting from "one and done" types of clinic, to more expensive ones like Asmed. Most of doc's are doing incisions only and leaving the rest for techs and since we all have limited donor supply and truly just 1 shot to make it or brake it, I have decided for myself that I want Dr. himself to do most crucial parts of surgery. Following that mindset I found couple of surgeons: Dr. Demirsoy Does 1 patient a day Does extractions & incisions himself Lots of great reviews on forums Fits my budget One thing bothering me he wanted to do 4000-4500 grafts over 1 day. After some debates I decided not to go for it. I am a proponent of smaller amounts over few days to preserve grafts, donor and doc could focus more on procedure itself, especially extractions and not waste any precious grafts. Dr. Pekiner Lots of positive feedback Does extractions & incisions himself Does 1 patient a day Charging almost twice more At this point I decided not to focus on money (thanks for my research!) and be open for more expensive options. Now, here is a things that was bothering me. He suggested 3000 grafts for the frontal part, from which 2500 would be extracted from scalp and 500 from beard. I really don't feel like using beard grafts for my first procedure! Just doesn't sounds right. Also patient adviser said that Dr. Pekiner will not change his mind and that's the only thing he would do. No negotiations. Obviously I didn't feel nice about it, so I decided to keep looking. I decided to get out of Turkish market and start looking from across the world. I had 2 live consultations with Dr. Bisanga and Dr. Lupanzula where both confirmed my great donor. Both suggested to be conservative and everything looks great, but the amount of money they are charging was sadly out of my reach. At some point I been watching so many videos on YouTube from Dr. Jose Lorenzo and always been amazed of his work. Obviously he was charging a big buck for his stellar job, but one thing that got my attention was he started working with Dr. Bruno Ferreira at some point over the last few years. I was "mhm.. If this guy is good enough for Dr. Lorenzo, he must be good". So I looked him up. Turns out Dr. Ferreira has a lot of experience in HT. He was mainly working for other clinics and now for Dr. Lorenzo in Madrid. He has also his own clinic in Portugal where he is based. The problem I found is he has very, very limited exposure online of his own work, only because most of his time he was working for someone else, meaning, someone else owns the rights for before/after. Despite this fact, every case he presented for me was a "wow" case. Recently I spoke with Joe Tillman & Spencer Kobren on their show and asked what's their opinion on this young doctor and was pleasantly surprised that they know this guy very well and in their opinion his job is stellar. So here we are. I send him my standard email and I've got the best online assessment I've ever seen! It was a great surprise of his attention to detail from his initial impression, to medical treatment, to prognosis, to HT plan consisting of two separate surgeries to achieve full recovery. Not a typical "copy - paste" type of response. He even convinced me to jump on Finasteride full dose 1mg/day, which I'm glad I did! Dr. Ferreira proposed 3000-3500 grafts (will decide on live consultation after he "gets his hands on my scalp") Surgery will be done in 2 consecutive days. At this point we decided to go for frontal restoration first, which is my main concern. After almost 40 emails back and forth and ~45 min video chat (Yes, with Dr. himself!) I finally decided - this is it, this is my Dr! Booked my surgery with him on January 28-29, 2020. Fingers crossed! P.S. Dr. Ferreira is quite OCD/perfectionist. I guess that's the best thing a patient could hear about his doctor! What I'm looking for right now is I need advise from you guys. I booked my hotel in Porto (30 seconds away from clinic hahaha ) from 27th of Jan to 2nd of Feb, so transplanted grafts will have 4 days to "settle down" and will less likely to be dislodged and whatnot. What shall I buy before surgery so I stay as comfortable as possible? Any special travel pillow? Aloe Vera gel for donor post-op? Any special hat for post-op? Tie my hands to bed for the first 7 nights, so I don't scratch recipient area while sleeping? Any help is appreciated! Super excited to get this finally done! Many thanks. Rolandas
  23. Hey guys I am a 35 yo male from London and arrived home last night from Istanbul so I will talk about my experience at Asmed. I wanted to keep this brief but to hell with it I couldn’t help it. Firstly a big thank you to both Sema and Suzana who were my coordinators. Sema - who helped me over the past year since I contacted Asmed and Suzana who was with me throughout the experience and never left my side. She is very fluent in English and communication and organisation was excellent. In fact everyone at Asmed looked after me very well and never made me feel awkward. Not to forget the anesthetist Dr Umat who is a very interesting individual :). Initially I sent Asmed (Sema - my initial coordinator) my photos 12 months ago and Dr Erdogan recommended 5000 grafts and for me to start finesteride before surgery as without it I may not be happy with the end result because of my type of hairloss. I was a bit weary of finesteride side effects so it took a month for me to decide what to do because for me hair transplants and finesteride go hand in hand. So a couple of months went by (sept - dec 2017) eventually I got on brand name Propecia 1mg by Merck. I started slowly as advised by a hair loss expert we all know - it took me till January until I was using it more or less every day. In this time I was in constant communication with Sema discussing dates etc. And getting my finances sorted. So in January I asked to book the surgery in May however they had very few dates and I could not get the amount of time I wanted from work. I use Toppik hair fibres and Asmed advise patients not to use it for 6 months so I wanted as much time not using it as possible after surgery. So my work allowed me to take 3 months leave (mix of unpaid and paid) - yes a lot of time but only 6 weeks was unpaid. So in February we decided on 3rd and 4th Oct. 2018 (2500 grafts per day) this was actually good because I would have been on Propecia 10 months. You can send from 1000 to 3000 euros - I sent 1000 initially and just before I went I sent another 2000 just after Dr Erdogan looked again at my updated photos (as it was nearly a year since the initial ones)to confirm. I used TransferWise as they take the actual exchange rate on Google and not lower rates like banks provide. I would need to arrive before 14:00 on 2nd Oct for the consultation however there were no flights that arrive before that time on BA from Heathrow Airport. There were other flights from different airlines but I wanted BA as I could get the flight for £75 return and free long stay parking (as I know someone who works there), I was already spending so much on the surgery so I wanted to keep costs down. Sema very kindly allowed me to arrive in the evening of 1st Oct, 2nd Oct - consultation, 3/4 Oct surgery 5th Oct shampoo/clean and departure for home at 1625. This extra night came at no extra cost. Initially I booked the clinic’s own suite but there was a problem with the room so they booked me into the Raddison blue hotel (5 mins from clinic) all days free and breakfast included. This turned out much better because although Asmed can make you breakfast, they close in the evening and the only people there are security and local restaurants are not very close. Just take a yellow taxi (with meter) from the hotel for 10 liras (just over a pound) and ask to go to the Palladium shopping and restaurant complex 5 mins away. If you need to change money into Turkish Lira change it at this complex just ask anyone for "change office" which is in the shopping center. I wanted to see the famous blue mosque and grand bazaar but it is an hour away. Day of Arrival (Mon 1st Oct) Flight arrived at 1630 just a 4 hour flight from London Heathrow Airport. The Asmed driver was there with my name written on an iPad (transfer from airport to hotel and all journeys between hotel and Asmed are free). He gave me his phone as Suzana (my day to day coordinator) spoke on the phone me and welcomed me to Istanbul and said she will be in constant touch with me on whatsapp and in the clinic she will be taking care of me the entire time. The car was a large Mercedes people carrier with beautiful red leather seats and plenty of snacks to enjoy. Because of the time of day it took close to an hour to get to the hotel because of rush hour. The Hotel room was very good and I took a taxi to the Palladium center. You just need to tell the hotel reception to get you a taxi and it comes right away, they have a meter on so you won't be ripped off. Took 5 mins cost me a pound and walked around the shopping center, ate some delicious kebabs and got a taxi which are always there and got back to my room to get some sleep. Day 2 (Consultation) Suzana sent me a whatsapp message saying that the driver will pick me up at 12:45. I got into the car with 2 other people who also were having their consultations. You should know that you won't be the only patient in the day as I will come to later. We were greeted at reception by our respective coordinators and reception staff. The clinic is amazing, clean, modern and very classy at the same time. There a couple of women who are playing the piano and violin in the reception area. So Suzana sat me down and said that she will wait here with me until we are called for the consultation. Dr Erdogan and his team were very busy during this time and surgeries were still going on so we needed to wait an hour before they could see us. However, in this time I was offered some snacks and asked to read through some paper work and sign that I understood all the terms. All of this would have been sent to you when you booked so it is just the same. After that I was taken downstairs for blood tests to test for HIV etc.. All clear. I then went into the photography room and had my photos taken both dry and wet hair shots from all angles. A while later I and my coordinator were called into Dr Erdogan's office. It was like meeting a king and I told him so - I have very been following him for few years and on social media so it was quite a hair raising moment for me. So in the consultation it was Dr Erdogan, another doctor, one of his senior surgical assistants and my coordinator. Dr Erdogan very quickly broke the ice with me and told me how happy he was to see me as when he saw my name he realized I am of Pakistani descent (born UK) and how happy he was about that because he has always liked people from there so that was a nice start. He went over some basic things with me and said that I am a candidate for hair transplantation after looking at the blood tests. He had a screen in front of him with my photos from just earlier and discussed what he can do. He said that my hair loss pattern was more Ludwig patterned rather than the usual norwood cases. He analysed my hair in detail with his apparatus and said that my hair is of very good quality with a total donor of 8500. In general he said that safe zone hair can be effected by DHT as seen by very old people and looking at my age (35) it is possible to lose 10% of safe zone hair in my lifetime and that if I came off finesteride later in life it is possible that my total donor capacity is at 7500 so even though my real donor is 8500 he sees it as 7500. He drew a hairline and asked what I thought. It was probably a tiny bit higher than I would have liked but he said that once transplanted it will look lower but my main concern were no temples drawn because mine are quite faint. He said in a funny way that he really does not like my crown. I have not got a massively receding hairline and that patch on the top really does stick out like a sore thumb. So he drew my temples and it looked great but he said he would need 700 grafts just for that and he can't cover the top properly as well in 1 operation so if want that it would be 700 less grafts in my crown and it still won’t look that good on top. He wanted 2000 grafts just for the crown 2500 for the hairline and just above and the remainder 500 in the mid-scalp as he said it has a lot of and hairs. He said it was up to me but if I leave it to him that is the way he would do it and I can always come back and do the temples after a year or so. I thought about it and knew already that the crown was my priority - it is a different type of hair loss pattern. So I said to him I will go with his instinct and he said I will be very happy with my result. He actually told me later on that he would in fact put 2100 in the crown and 400 just below that instead of the 500 so my crown should have a big difference he said. This was not the final hairline and he would refine it after hair shaving. Consultation lasted about 20 minutes I had a bunch of questions for him but he really is to the point and just gets on with his analysis and what he can do for you. After that Suzana took me to the finance department where I paid the outstanding amount in Pounds Sterling cash. If your home currency is pounds or USD I advise you to pay in that currency to them. It saves you changing into euro where you won’t get a good rate and will have to pay some fees. The rate the clinic gave me was much better than at home and they don’t charge you for them to change it into euros. After this I got my hair shaved off! It actually looked alright! I waited for Dr Erdogan to make his final refined hairline plans. He told me that he will go into the temples a bit so that was good news. Whilst this was going on he has a big team of people watching. These are the techs or surgical assistants (as he calls it) who will work with you for the entire surgery. If you have 2 days surgery like me they don’t have different teams, it’s the same people working on you. I was then taken to the room where they have their latest robot – the K-bot. You sit with your head against a support pad and the camera takes 3d images of your entire head and you can see on the screen your grafts in detail. This helps the doctor further in his analysis. This lasts for 15 minutes but you can be on your phone – I actually took a video of what the K-bot was doing but I don’t think you can post videos here. This all took best part of 4 hours from waiting at the start to the end. Dropped back to the hotel went into town again for a nice kebab (with lines in my head). Yes you have to keep the lines on and not rubbed off because they then have to go through the whole process again. And no wearing hats so I was laughed and smiled at a lot whilst walking through town it was surreal. Day 3 (Surgery 2515 grafts) Asmed advise you to where a buttoned shirt before and after surgery. I woke up at 6 am, 6:30 breakfast buffet – plenty of variety. For 3 days including this day I had to take an antibiotic tablet with breakfast and Xanax to calm me although I only needed that for the first day. It wasn’t till I got down there that I realised how many of us were being operated on. Including me it was 6 guys at breakfast ready to be taken to Asmed. Three of them already had their first day hairline surgery and the rest of us were on our first day. I was slightly taken back by this because I was sure they only did 4 surgeries a day but I guess it can depend on the cases. One guy was just having his hairline refined. All 6 of got into the people carrier and went to Asmed. We were given Asmed buttons shirts and bottoms to wear for surgery and it really is straight into it from that point. My coordinator took me to the surgery room and I met all the people involved with my surgery. I asked who will be doing the extractions and how long they had been working there. One person would be doing the extractions and she has been doing ONLY extractions for 7 years so I felt assured. Suzana showed me the microscope where they dissect single hair grafts as I was querying this lot. So onto the anaesthetics – Dr Umat organises this. He is a very interesting person he looks serious but he is a really cool person and fun to talk to, if he ever reads this I hope you are well and very active! This is the most painful part of the surgery, they have something that vibrates as they inject many times into your scalp which makes it a bit easier. If it is too much, they can give you something through the I.V your arm help ease you. It acts really quick and she starts extracting and you cannot feel a thing. You have a screen in front which tells you how many grafts have been extracted and if they’re singles, twos etc…I actually had a fair amount of 4s 5s 6s. Suzana was in the room with me the whole time she was a great help. She gave me a face rest support where I could also stick my I pad on it to watch stuff on. Sema came in now and I watched a popular bald show (we all know) re run from the previous night just to keep them on their toes and they knew what it was. This whole process takes more than 3 hours (I think) as I just lost track of time I didn’t sleep at all. They extracted 2515 grafts in total. Dr Erdogan did not come in during this time but his most experienced surgical assistant – Dilek came in at certain points. Dr Erdogan watches all the surgeries on monitor in his office and directs if need be from there which I am not completely happy about but the results are good. Next was 30 minute lunch maybe less and back to the operating room where I’m prepped and given anaesthetics for the recipient area before the main man Dr Erdogan comes in and shakes my hand and begins the incisions. The techs cover my eyes and hold my face in certain positions as the doctor instructs them whilst he pokes away. This takes him 30 – 40 mins and he shakes your hand and moves to the next patient. The same person that did the extractions is now joined by Dilek who both start the implanting stage. This can be prickly and pain a bit so they test certain areas and ask you is it painful or not. If it is they put some liquid type anesthetic so you don’t feel it. In fact at any time you feel pain you must tell them and they will ease it. They put a special blue solution over the recipient area which highlights all the incisions Dr Erdogan made. At some point they realised they covered the required area and had a few more grafts so Dilek made a few extra incisions which is fine as she is possibly the best tech going. Implants can take quite a while I cannot remember exactly but it was just a bit less than the extractions so maybe 2 hours. Once it is done I felt very tired walked very slowly as I was trying to get my bearings right. The trauma and anesthetics can make you very tired. So Suzana came with me to another room where they sat me down under a low level red laser for 10 mins to help with healing. After that she gave me ATP spray and said I must put spray my recipient area a few times every 2 hours with it. She also gave me ice cooling gel to help with swelling. Its only till a few days later I realise how big my face got! I went back to the hotel, my forehead looked bigger because of the swelling had something to eat in the hotel restaurant – felt like crap but hotel staff are used to Asmed patients so I mixed in well. I went back upstairs for a very awkward night. Didn’t sleep much, Suzana gave me neck pillow and for the first 10 days you need to sleep with this on your back facing up (no rolling about) do not let your recipient area rub anything as this is a very sensitive time for your scalp. I wasn’t in much pain but I just felt completely shattered and sleepy but I kept waking up in the night but I got through it somehow. Day 4 – (Surgery 2505 grafts) Exactly the same as day 3. Note that grafts it is not exactly 5000 grafts (5020) they do not tell you to pay for these extra few. So that is it, surgery complete and Dr Erdogan came and said he is happy with the way it looks and is just the way he wanted it and said he will see me tomorrow. In terms of reactions to the surgery at the time I had swelling but by the time I wrote this my face was huge I look like sloth from the goonies – google it if you don’t know. But this is all part of it. Some people have more sensitive bodies than others. Just have to keep applying ice packs. Day 5 – (Wash and go) Another awkward night but managed to have breakfast and be picked up at 9:50 am. Suzana was at reception and took me down for the shampoo and washing. This is what you have to do on your own for 10 days post op so pay attention when they tell you. They took the bandages off washed me and I felt fresh again and went in for the final post op photos. They gave me some Turkish delight sweets as a gift and a power pack. As well as this as they knew I was on Proscar (I changed to proscar a month earlier – cost effective and same brand Merck) they gave me 1 year supply of Proscar (£200 worth) for free and a pill cuter! They gave me a USB stick with all my surgical details and photos as well as various papers of post op instructions. All the post op shampoos and creams are free. Suzana bid me farewell she was really good to me the entire time and I told her I’ll be back in a year for results photographs only downside Dr Erdogan didn’t meet me I left but I guess he is busy with all the other patients. Dropped to the hotel at 12 and was told the driver will be back at 14:00 for airport drop of. So that’s it I hope I didn’t bore you with the details there is more I could write but those details may come up in the future in the meantime I have posted photographs taken at Asmed below. Surgery Details : 1148 Single 2589 Double 1158 Triple 119 Quadruple 6 Quintuple Total Grafts: 5020 Avg hair: 2.05 per graft Hair thickness: 61 microns Medication: Proscar 1.25 per day since January 2018 Pre-Op Plans: Post OP
  24. I receive this question daily, I thought I would make a video on the subject. I would love to hear the communities input. How many of you have had successful hair transplant procedures with diffuse hair loss?
  25. For those of you who have had hair transplants, did you guys suffer from shock loss? I would love to hear the communities input. Will You Suffer From Shock Loss If You Have A Hair Transplant?
