5000 grafts FUE - 13th/14th December - Asmed Dr Erdogan

Recommended Posts

Hello DEB and congratulations on your HT. Hope it turns out just as you expect it. I'm at the beginning of my journey (still deciding what to do / where to do it) but Dr. Erdogan is one of my top choices for now.

 

Seeing the last pics you posted, the 8th and 9th, you are still expecting for some hairs to pop out, right? Worst has passed so it will be upwards from now on. Good luck

Yes I am still expecting many more hairs to pop out. Mine all seem to be coming through in stages rather than all together. I look so much better already as my face in now much better shaped so I'm happy just got to wait for more to show up and then to thicken! I'm feeling pretty confident that it's going to get there though.

 

You can't go wrong with Dr Erdogan in my opinion. He would be my only choice if I was ever to return.

The fun has begun. I just have a feeling you will have a killer result. Congrats.

 

Deb, I wanted to send you a PM but it looks like I can't (probably no permissions).

Did you contact Dr. Erdogan by submiting your pictures through his site?

I hope so pal. Only recently have I really started to believe that as well. I can see a load of hairs now so I'm hoping it's going to continue.

 

Yeah I just sent it via the submission form on their website and then they were in touch a day or two later.

16 Weeks Post Op

 

It's still coming through but as I keep saying it isn't anything you'd notice on a daily basis. I think my growth is just going to be slow and steady. It's definitely improving week on week and I can still see lots of new hairs coming through. There are still a lot to come through but I still have another 2 and a half months of new growth to come so I'm not worried but am a little impatient.

 

The crown seems to be improving more quickly than the hairline which is slightly odd as I was led to believe the opposite would be true.

 

Pictures below. I think one of the hardest challenges is seeing others have almost full growth at 3 months when you are well behind that. But then you see others who experience the majority of growth at the 5 month mark. Welcome any comments advising how people think my growth is getting on. It's 16 weeks, 10 days away from 4 months.

 

As a side note I have dropped Saw Palmetto from my supplements as I noticed a slight decrease in libido. Only started taking them in January and the past two months I've just felt a little uninterested. I've been off it for a week and am feeling back to my old self. Odd as have been on Finasteride for 13 years with no issues. Maybe it was a bit overkill. Worth mentioning though.

Hey mate, was wondering if you are comfortable sharing the price you paid for 5,000 grafts? I'm really trying to figure out how much I'll be spending to get this done. Sorry if I missed it in one of your responses, 23 pages was a lot to sort through.

 

Cheers!

It's 2.5 Euros per graft so it was 12,500 Euros.

 

Sorry there is a lot of writing. Maybe I should switch to monthly updates!

Right on track mate, looks amazing for just 3 months and 20 days. Very few ppl see majority of the growth in 4th month and no worries if you're not one of them. I'm very confident you'll have excellent result by the end of 6th month.

 

And pls dont change to monthly updates, share the exciting weekly updates with us pls if possible :)

17 Weeks Post Op

 

Again very subtle changes and I'm still waiting for a ton more hairs to come through. Hoping they turn up over the next month as it would seem a lot of people experience good growth between month 4 and 5. The hairs that have come through are getting thicker and longer which is making it less noticeable that I've had anything done, it just looks a little like I'm thinning in the front now. Crown is still improving and I think over the next few months that will fill in well.

 

It's my 4 month mark in 3 days but I will continue to update weekly to my 6 month mark as people have asked me too.

 

I am getting a little anxious about how many more hairs are yet to appear, especially behind the hair line. Here's hoping for a positive next month!

We had surgery same day. I feel I am in same boat. At times I am like have all the hairs sprouted? But I think we just think negative because some people have major growth very quick but that's not really normal. I think we are both on track and I saw some of your pics, my guess is we're on track.

4 Month Update

 

Just a quick post to celebrate my 4 month mark. I've had a small bit of growth but according to Asmed I should see a large amount of the multiple grafts come through over the next two months. It's definitely improving week on week but it's very gradual. I don't seem to have had a wave of sudden growth as others have. I've been in constant contact with Asmed and they assure me all is fine and I am still seeing new hairs coming through so I guess I'm a just a slower grower.

 

I will say this that mentally this has been the toughest time for me. When you are expecting the hairs to start showing their faces and they don't, it is hard to not become anxious that they never will. It's only this morning when I look back at my 3 months pics that do I see just how many hairs have come through. The dual photo below is the difference month 3 to 4. The others are just a few quick photos from this morning.

It's so important to keep a photographic timeline, as the changes are so subtle from month to month..

 

Looks on track and going to be a great result.

Not much to say as don't think much has changed since last week. As I've said before it's still quite sparse but can see new hairs coming through just not a huge amount.

 

I am still getting some itching so hope this is a sign that things are still happening.

 

Appreciate everyone saying that I look like I'm on track. It's just my own impatience that's getting to me.

I think it's looking good for just 18 weeks and you can expect a lot of growth/thickening over the next weeks.

 

Thanks mate!! It's not till you look back at photos from the previous month that you really see the difference.

 

Here is a photo I took at work at month 3 and month 4.

19 Weeks Post Op

 

Definitely seen an improvement this week. I was away for a long weekend and as such wasn't checking my hair as often and when I came back the front seems to have thickened up slightly. There is still a difference between the hair line thickness and what was transplanted behind but there are still hairs coming through.

 

Still a slow process and a lot more hair to come through but am feeling a little more positive now. The outline is there just need more hair and for it to thicken.

Great progress and thank you very much for this thread. I check it out almost every day for updates :)

 

When after the transplant did you start using the HairMax laser comb, right away? The reason I ask is that I've read on some forums that users report a significantly reduced healing time and faster regrowth if it's used immediately in the days post op.

 

Also I was wondering about your crown, hard to tell in the pictures but is the growth there similar to the one in the hairline and do you feel that this procedure should to be enough to fill it up?

 

Again, thanks for a great thread and congrats on what seems to be a successful surgery!!
