Sitting in my hotel room after my first and final day of surgery at Asmed. What a fantastic experience!
Starting losing my hair around 25, but really only very slowly and in the temple peaks/hairline areas. Started Fin and it has stabilized ever since.
Since I already have quite a large forehead, I found the receding hairline only exasperated the issue and my self confidence. I pretty much wear a fringe all the time with the rest of hair spiked up. I find that having a fringe balanced my face and framed it. However, this was becoming harder with the receding hairline.
So i booked up with Asmed after sitting on it for around 1 year. I am so happy I finally got it done! I flew all the way from Australia on 19/11/18 for surgery on the 22nd.
The consultation day was quite long as there was 4 other people with my that day and I was last to be seen. My coordinator Suzana was unbelievable though, she was constantly asking me if i required anything to eat/drink and even answered all the questions i had for the doctor. She has great knowledge of hair transplants, more than the majority of people on this forum
When i did meet Dr Koray, it was like meeting a rockstar, I had seen and heard so much about him I was a bit nervous even speaking.
Now, i had informed Suzana about some of the posts on here regarding Asmed clinic and some of the allegations and not so good results recently. She had passed this onto Dr Koray and he was genuinely quite upset at some on the things being said and is aware of some issues. He is such a nice man, he genuinely cares deeply about his patients. He stated that he was very grateful that I had shown faith in his work and had choose to travel all the way from Australia to his clinic.
The hairline he drew was pretty much perfect first time and exactly how I wanted it. I know there are density risks when you lower the hairline substantially and I wanted to play it safe, with a drop of around 1cm.
He asked if I was sure I still wanted U-FUE and I stated yes because of the great results i have seen using this method. Plus I get to hide it during the ugly duckling stage.
Day of Operation
Picked up at 7:10am after breakfast. Had been given some xanex to take in the morning to chill me out which helped We had 5 patients that day with one heading back to get his hair washed. The clinic was really busy with us all there.
I was the only 1 not getting my head shaved so i always seemed to have more assistants around me for things like cutting, washing hair, checking grafts etc. Not many people get it done so you do seem to get a fair bit more attention.
When the anaesthetic injections started, they were a little sore. I asked for some pain relief and that was given by IV. It produced this very spaced out happy feeling!
The extractions then started which took upto about 1pm. Then after a bite to eat, Dr Koray did the insisions.
After that his team did the implanting which took until about 5pm,
Just want to say thanks to all the staff at Asmed they are all really professional, friendly and hard working.
FYI I did go past the new building. A number of people have stated concern that it will be used for even more patients a day. I seeked clarification on this and it's actually being used to bring all accommodation including food and post op care in house, Instead of using Raddison hotel. It has things like games rooms with PS4's/Xbox and chill out rooms so you can relax during your stay at the clinic.
Total donor 8900
2506 grafts extracted
NOTE: They do shave the front area where there is "weakness" to place extra grafts. The consultation photo below shows some of my hairline shaven back, it's usually not as bad as this.
