Its done!

 

The Morning - Extraction

 

09:00am - Was picked up from my hotel and driven to the hospital, couldn't believe how modern it was really nice. Went straight up to Dr Hakans office and we discussed hairline design, but of tooing and froing on this as I originally was looking to a bit too straight so we compromised on the curved design he was wanting to do and met somewhere in the middle. After that I was shaved down and taken next door to begin the extractions, the injections were sore but bearable, the three hours seemed to fly by and before I knew it we were done, I was then taken upstairs to my own room, again very nice with bed, sofa, TV and own bathroom. I had lunch here and chilled for half an hour. The assistant then came and got me and took me back down for the implantation. I then spoke to Dr Ayhan in more detail to make sure and get the hairline right, was really pleased with the design.

 

The Afternoon - Implantation

 

12.10pm - So once again the injections were painful, A bit more this time as they were going in the temples etc but nothing major. The implantation begin with Dr Hakan doing the implantation and the assistants loading up the Choi, they really are a class act, I've had more stressful experiences at the hairdressers! After an hour or so we stopped for a break, went into Dr Hakans office for tea and some birthday cake. After that back in we went for more implantation. Dr Ayhan popped in and out as he spoke good English just to give me a run through on how it was going, really great guy. This time seemed to fly by and before I knew it we were done, I then had an injection in the bum cheek and was bandaged up. Given some medication and a quick chat with Dr Hakan who said it went great, My donor wasn't too thin or too thick they said it was right in the middle. I was then dropped to my hotel.

 

So back tomorrow for a wash and a follow up conversation - cant say enough are brilliant they are, first class.

You have to put your hat on the belt so basically while it goes through, also at customs they ask you to take it off

I only had to take my hat off for a few seconds. I told them I had my hair done and they let me put the hat back on straight away.

Glad to hear you had a good trip! It sounds like it went really well and your trip to Dr Doganay and Dr. Ayhan was as pleasant as mine. Hope some of my advice helped even if just a tiny bit!
