5007 grafts, Dr Koray Erdogan at Asmed clinic 7-8/09/16

Recommended Posts

Hey guys I’m for a long time following this forum but was not active until now.

I want to share with you my experience in Asmed clinic.

A little bit background I’m 24 years old. I have began to lose hair since I’m 18 years old but the process was very slow..

In the past 2 years things begin to move faster and in the last year it’s began also in my crown area, and it started to really bother me.

I understood that if I will not do anything within2-3 years I will be bald.

I started to read and then in February I began using a Minoxi and then in May also Finasteride.

In August I scheduled a hair transplant with doctor Koray.

 

The procedure:

I arrived to Istanbul at noon time and I was so nervous. The driver has been waiting for me at the airport and took me straight to the clinic and then I did all the health check and the live consultation and we decided on 5,000 grafts 2500 in the front and temple area and 2500 in the middle and vertex area.

On this day I have met a few patients and they were doing the surgery and one patient came for the second procedure.

I also met the doctor and all of his staff and I saw the clinic and that made me very relaxed and comfortable with my decision.

The surgery took 2 days, on the first day they did the front and on the second the rest.

Everything went very well and except for the anesthesia, it did not hurt only a little bit when they took the hair from the donor area. The majority of the transplant procedure I have been sleeping.

The day after I did the first washing they showed me how to properly wash my head. And after the driver picked me up to drive to the airport.

I want to say a huge thank you for this forum and for all the people that shared their experience and for assisting me to make my decision.

Also a huge thank you for DR Koray and all of his staff making my experience the best they can.

Last but not least for my patients coordinator Suvenic that always answered my mail and my question.

In here I will share a few pictures and I will update more pictures within the next few months.

Please cross your fingers for me for I have the best regrowth. If you have question please feel free to ask.

Hey thanks for the support and the kind comments very appreciative of that.

 

You can see in the picture I still have many grafts on my head,

only if you take a closer look you can see its not natural, but for a random person it's look natural because it’s mixed with my native hair..

 

I don’t have any more scabs except of a big scab in my donor area and it’s always secreting some white things,

in the begining it was a lot and it has been decreasing but its still there.

 

So for now I feel everything goes very well.

 

I attached few picture from 15 and 21 days.

Not sure how. Missed this post previously. Your hair looks amazing at day 15. Interesting that even at day 21 you have little or no shedding. Like DEB1982, curious as to how things are 7 weeks on?

Hey, is been only 6 weeks so far.

As the shedding goes it's been there since the start, naturally it started slow and kept growing a little bit every day around the 18 it got faster and faster till the 25-day mark, now it still shed but just a little bit. You can check the progress in the attached photos and I still have some grafts there.

 

beside that everything is going okay almost all the graft are gone and my donor area is feeling fine.

 

10 days ago I started using roganie twice a day (I quit the minoxi two weeks before my surgery),

in general my scalp still is a bit reddish but I hope it will pass in the next month or so.

 

I did get myself an haircut , needless to say it's my first haircut after the surgery, with the short hair I can still see abit of red point in my donor area.

 

I attached a picture before and after the haircut.

Looking good at 6 weeks. You don't seem to have suffered any substantial shock loss which is a real bonus. Think this will be a stellar result.

Thanks.

I think I had a little bit of shock loss in the vertex area,but I'm not sure.

Thou my native hair in the implants area had grown a bit slower up than usual.

Chabany, your hairline from week 3 up through week 12 is starting to develop. As an outsider who's not staring at your hair, I can see that the growth has started big-time. Month 4 should be even better.
