My 2350 grafts HT at Dr. Felix - Romania

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody,

 

I just had a HT in Bucharest Romania at Dr. Felix Popescu clinic. I had 2 days session for my N 4 problem. I ask for a feedback from you regarding my postop 7 days now.

I have done my ht for restoring my hairline (first day) and my crown second day. The doctor (dr. Felix Popescu) recommend me for the crown area to save as much as possible the existing hair by a treatment based on Propecia and Rogaine Foam because I am too young (28 years old).

My session was actually one and a half days. First day I had 1550 Grafts (manual extraction) and next day 800 grafts.

I will appreciate your feedback and please excuse my English.

Here are some pictures just received from the clinic.

 

Thank you guys!

Looks like it, "manual extraction" was stated so most likely it was FUE hehe.

Thank you guys!

There are not too many HT clinics in Romania. This one (Dr. Felix Popescu) is considered with the best quality (density and natural aspect) but because they are doing manual FUE the amount performed is limited. My other option was to fly to Istambul to a cheap clinic where they do motorized FUE. They told me they can do up to 5500 grafts in two days but they have very poor results.

By the way it is possible to have 5500 grafts in one session by FUE? My Romanian doctor explain me that more than 3000 split in two days is almost impossible.

And please if anyone can tell me if 4000 Euro for my session is a fair price?

 

Thank you again,

 

Almost forgot. The implantation have been done with a pen, something that look like a big syringe.

3000 grafts with manual FUE over 2 days is around the max u can do. motorized fue u can hit 4000 + over 2 days.

Hello again!

I have done some pictures after 2 weeks. Looks like the healing is really fast. At the back side you can't see that I have done anything. The same is in the the implanted area. The angle of the hairs and density are identical with my original hair and, except a very small difference of the texture, you can't say that I have done a hair transplant.

So far so good. Me very happy :D.

Does anyone know when can I go to a hairdresser?

 

Thank you guys.

 

I will appreciate any feedback.

Looking good so far. I am 6 weeks post op myself. Most transplanted hair have fallen off. It will happen to you as well. Don't be worried when the shed begins as its all part of the healing process

Its a bit early for a haircut but if you do. Get the sides and back of the head cleaned up. Explain to the barber that you have had a transplant. That way the transplanted hair wont get in contact with the clippers

Thanks mate!

So the implanted hairs should be cut after 1 month.

 

I was instructed by my doctor (dr koray) not to touch, cut or fiddle around the transplanted hair. He stated its best to let the area heal. No point in cutting the transplanted hairs as some or all will shed. Be patience mate. Your doctor must have given you post-op instructions?

Yes! He said to wait 3 weeks after the implanted area is clean. Just want to see also other advices.

 

Thanks again mate!

Not a problem! Let me know if you require help. Were only a few weeks apart from our transplants. Eager to see how we get on!

The implantation have been done with a pen.

 

It is a super-cheap price. Less than 2 Euros for manual-doctor-extracted FUE. That is extremely good.

 

It looks nice. Let's see if it grows. And if it does, (and why not?), I'd say Romania is on our little world FUE map.

 

the pen, a Choi (spell?) implanter?

Hi Scar!

I have not any idea what is the name of the pen but certanly looks like the Choi pen... Now is about a month and I think all goes for good. Nobody can say that I have done something, only that I am looking better... Happy!

 

Cheers!

Hi again!

My postop recommendation said that I have to use at least 1 year Rogaine 5% Foam and Finasteride 1 mg. It is absolutely necessary? Many friends scare me about the side effects...

The biotine and MSM looks that I have to take them as long as I want.

 

Thanks again for your support!

Hello again!

 

here are some pics from my 3 months evaluation. i am a little bit scared because some friends told me that I have to be more bold. They said that my hair should rise in the 6-th month. Doctor told me that he used hypothermosol and for this reason I have more hair in the third month. I am complete satisfied even like this but as I understand, I have only half now and I have to wait for the other half...

 

Thanks for your attention!

Mircea, at 3 months, you are at around 20-30% of your final result. I actually think you look remarkably GOOD for only 3 months, and think this has the makings of a very good HT.

 

Regarding the medication, I think you should certainly try the Finasteride. It can only help your hair from a future loss point of view. IF you ever experience sides, then you can come off it. Even start with a smaller dose. There are very few side effects with the Rogaine foam so best to keep using that. I use MSM and Biotin as supplements as they are believed to possibly help in either improving hair calibre or possibly increasing the rate of growth.

 

Regarding your case in general.....I usually get a bit nervous when I see somebody posting that they've just got a HT with a doc I've never heard of, but I'm impressed with the post OP photos and your current state.

Your hair looks quality mate.

 

Crown looks like it might be thinning however, but Rogaine and Finasteride will help with that and hopefully you will keep it intact
