2700 Grafts FUE - Tue 11th October 2016 - Dr Koray Erdogan ASMED Istanbul

Recommended Posts

I don't know any 50 year olds with hair as good as yours but can certainly see how a little extra density (25-30%) would make a huge difference. I tend to think that as long as its not a money issue you should get the touch up to get your hair issues off the mind and focus on more fulfilling pursuits.

Hi Justjax,

Bet your feeling good with all the compliments :D. Just a quick couple of points-

Can you offer any advise for my trip? Do you think I would be able to wear a zip up hoodie for the flight home? And lastly, nothing to do with HT, where did you get your eye lid surgery done? Thanks in advance.

Hey, yeah zip up hoodie is probably ideal, what you don’t want is something tight that you have to pull over your head. If I recall I worse a vest type top (so really wide opening at the neck) and a hoodie although Turkish Airlines flight was like a sauna so didn’t actually wear the hoodie.

As for my eyelid surgery. I had just my uppers done with Dr Taimur Shoaib at La Belle Forme clinic in Edinburgh. I could have had it done in London but it was around ?2000 in Edinburgh vs about ?2800 in London so I had a cheap flight up to Scotland instead. Looking at the their website it’s now showing as ?2600 including anesthetic, but I had mine awake (which is cheaper and was an option then), not sure if they still do that.

Thanks, I think I was fairly lucky. A friend of mine still gets annoyed if I talk about the HT as he felt I really didn’t need it anyway ..which some might argue was true but for me it was just to restore a more youthful look, particularly at the temples. On paper I can afford a 2nd transplant but of course I don’t want to spend for the sake of it. I think I’ll give it the full 18 months just to be sure and then see what Dr Koray says. In my mind a 2nd procedure would prob be 1000 grafts max.

Looking good Jax! The way your hair line frames your face has knocked years of you in my opinion.

 

I'm in a similar boat where I'm really happy with my current results but a little extra density would make such a big difference. As you are I'm going to wait till 18 months before deciding on what to do but I'm leaning towards a small touch up of hopefully no more than 100 grafts to get me to where I ultimately want to be.

JustJax your results have turned out great. Did you get a Acell treatment when you had the procedure..?

I've never heard of Erdogan using A-cell? Is he using that in his ops these days?

Any updates for >18 months? I am curious about the very front which is the only part that could use some improvement according to the photos.

And congratulations! :)

Hi Ben, thanks ..  no massive change from 12 months, at least not that I've overly noticed. Still have a few little weak spots, although they are not obvious to others.  I am still considering a small touch up/second procuedure with Asmed, but it won't likely been until early next year due to possibly moving home in the next few months. Interestingly, I was chatting to my personal trainer at the gym last week and talking about a 2nd procedure and he had no idea I'd had a HT to start with. Got to be a good sign! B|

Anyway, I'll try and do some updated pictures this week, although expect much of the same.

Soon 3 years. Would be interesting to see how it holds up. And if the frizzyness settled.

Hope all is well with you, Jax.
