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

Recommended Posts

25 Weeks Post Op

 

Strangely enough, I seem to have seen some more density in the past week. This could be because I had a much shorter hair cut at the weekend but it has lifted my spirits regardless. I can still see lots of new hairs and some really fine ones so I am feeling very hopeful for the next few months.

 

I've got to the point where I am not styling my hair and leaving it as it is after washing and colleagues are telling me how thick it is looking. I know I have more density to come but even at this point, it's framed my face so nicely and I look younger and better than I have over the past 10 years.

 

I should add lots of the new hairs are quite frizzy but have been told they will settle down as they mature.

 

6 months next week!

 

I've put a few different photos at the end so you can see how it looks naturally in different lighting. First two wet, second two damp, third two dry. As you may tell I'm feeling really positive at the minute.

 

Wow great progress and shorter haircut is certainly making a huge difference. Would you mind doing a pic with dry hairs spiked up or combed back please to give us a better idea of density at this stage?

It's hard to spike up as it's so short at the moment but I will blow dry it back next week so you can get a better idea.

 

Awesome. When it's wet, doesn't even look like it could get thicker. Great result and your not even at a half way point yet. Your hair looks like it will be fully restored.

 

Thank you. It's getting there. Let's hope so!

 

Looking great! :cool:

 

TBH, I do think that having it shorter really helps. I notice mine definately looks a lot stronger when shorter.

 

As for the fuzziness, I totally know where you are coming. I found the front looked a little wiry and fuzzy going back a month or two, especially when it was a little longer. From what I can see its partly down to split ends. But its already improved since then and I had a good cut about 3 weeks ago and that really helped get rid of some of split ends. I have also read that the new hair texture improves over time.

 

Cheers Jax. Looking forward to seeing your next update!

So I have reached the 6 month mark and I think it's fair to say that I'm a gradual grower. I'm really happy with the difference from where I was when I started out but I am lacking in density considering I had 5000 grafts. I'm not concerned though and I truly believe that over the next 6 months it will go from strength to strength.

 

I can still see new hairs appearing and lots of very thin almost see through hairs which once thickened will have a huge cosmetic difference. The big plus is that during my every day life I am just wearing my hair as it dries after the shower and am not conscious of it. For nights out I have added a little fibre and it looks amazing and I've received many compliments. The way it has framed my face has been the biggest difference.

 

At the half way mark I am very happy and although I have days where I am a little impatient, I am optimistic to see what the next 6 months bring. If I did need a second touch up session it would be minimal and only to add some density to the hairline. Let's hope I don't need to do that!

 

Switching to monthly updates from here on as well as I want to try and stop analysing it so much as think that stops me appreciating how far I've come.

 

I've added lots of photos. The last two are of it blow dried back as someone asked for one of those and the last is how I style it with a little bit of fibre in it. I'm hoping my final result looks something like that! It now takes me 5 minutes to do my hair, not 45 minutes!!

Not going to update with any pictures as I said until Month 7 now but for anyone who has concerns about density or growth at around 5 - 6 months as I did, I just wanted to let you guys know that the density has really started to improve the past two weeks and I can still see lots of young immature hairs so I can only imagine it's going to get better. Month 6 - 9, I'm hoping is going to be my game changer!

 

Slow growers, worry not!

7 Months Post Op

 

So the past month I have definitely seen some added density and I believe many of the hairs have started to mature. If my hair is pushed forward then I am happy with it but it is still not dense enough in the front to push the hair backwards which is what I would like to do one day.

 

I can still see some new hairs sprouting and a lot of thin hairs that will mature and add to the illusion so not giving up hope of an improvement just yet.

 

I have come a long way from where I started but I'm not happy just yet. Maybe hair greed but I want to be able to push my fringe backwards without it being see through. The crown is continuing to fill in but the left side is still see through as you can see.

 

With fibres it looks perfect but my aim was to be able to stop using them. Asmed have told me to wait for the full 12 months before I draw any conclusions and that I will experience more density and growth over the next few months. I do seem to be a gradual grower so this may be the case.

 

The positives are that it frames my face brilliantly and I am using much less fibres than I did previously. If it wasn't to improve from here though I would want a second pass to add density in the front and a little in the crown. The fact I am still seeing new hairs, thin hairs and even some black dots in places should hopefully mean that I still have more to come though.

 

Will update at 8 months.

Had some time on my hands today so put this together as really made me realise how far I have come and this should be useful for others who don't explode with growth all at once like I didn't.

 

Can only imagine how good it will look in another 5 months if it looks like this now!

DEB, looking great man! Love the layout of photos you did tracking your progress month to month, you can really see how the density increases each time. My bet is that you continue to see thickening over the next few months, although honestly your hairline at Month 7 is already looking enviable. Wish my own hairline looked like that!

 

This is the thread that finally made me bite the bullet and book a transplant with Dr. Erdogan. I had my initial online consultation with him over 3 years ago but wasn't really ready to go forward with it then. I also had some reservations about flying to Turkey since I live in NYC and it's a 10-11 hour flight. But after reading this thread, and seeing all of the impressive results ASMED has been pumping out, I finally emailed Sevinj back to book the surgery. Now I'm impatiently waiting to hear back from her!

Great little complication pic. The difference between the first and the last is amazing. Completely reframes your face. :cool:

Hey Deb, when did you get your first haircut at a barber?

 

I started getting the back and sides clipped at the end of the first month and then had normal hair cuts after 3 months. This was as instructed by Asmed.

Thank you and glad I could be of some assistance to you in getting booked up. It is a really hard first 6 months and even now I still have days where I think it's getting worse. Prepare yourself now that it's going to take 12 months post op to see the full results. Best way to be.

Cheers Jax. I just want a bit more density now and then I'll be there. Looking forward to your next update.

 

Your results look great, and will look even better!

 

 

Congratulations, and best of luck going forward!

Hey Deb, how's your density coming? I'm about 1.5 months behind you and mine is still very minimal. My hair still looks see through at the moment.

Hey. Mine is improving but it's very slowly. If it's brushed forward or to the side then it looks fine in my opinion. Pushed back and it still looks see through at this stage. I'm hoping for more improvements over the next year though! If not then I'll just have to have a small touch up!

 

I've come along way from where I was though! I can still see a load of very thin hairs so hopefully will keep getting better!

8 months update coming tomorrow

 

Been away on holiday for the past 10 days.

 

But took these two pictures. Density is still improving! Think my coarse hair is helping as well.

 

These pictures show what an important role light plays. The first one has the flash on and makes my hairline look perfect, the second in natural daylight shows that it still has some thickening to do. I still think it will improve!

Hi Deb,

I'm new to the forum. Must say, I have really enjoyed reading your updates and seeing the pictures. I'm booked with Asmed in October for 5000 grafts. Your positive review amongst others tipped me towards Dr Koray. Hopefully I will have 4 weeks post op, off work. Just a bit concerned about the flight home and all the unwanted stares at the airport. Information on being able to wear a loose hat seems a bit misleading. Any thoughts or advise would be welcome. Keep up the updates.

4 weeks is along time to take off after, you will be heading back to work as the ugly duckling stage is under way. I went back after 10 days as I wanted to show off my new hairline before it had gone.

The flight home wasn't too good for me as I had already started to swell so had a few looks. I didn't cover my head though. There was easily 10 other guys I saw at the airport that had just had a HT. it's very common in turkey. There was 3 of us on the same flight back to Manchester.

Asmed do give you a hat you can wear but it is horrible so I decided not too wear one. A lot of other guys had sweatbands over their foreheads from the clinics they had their HT done.

Honestly you won't care what people think so much because you will be too happy you have actually done it.
