ASMED 4600 graft fue hair transplant 24/10/16

Recommended Posts

So, originally i wasnt going to post my progress on here, but ther more i think about it, and the more i find myself browsing the forums the more i think i should, mostly to help other people who have or are thinking about going ahead with the procedure.

 

Backstory

 

so im a 25 years old, and i was suffering with hairloss from the age of about 18, so for someone who takes care with there appearance this effected my life dramatically, to begin with i was in a kind of denial about it, and i sort of just lived with it, but as the years went by i slowly became obsessed with it, developed a sort of complex over it, and it became harder and harder to hide, i was on the right track to looking like bobby chalton haha, a mixture of hair fibres, a peticular routine of drying, straightening and hairspraying my hair into place. i slowly started losing more and more confidence and became more and more self conscience, to the point where it was ruining my quality of life, couldnt do the things i enjoyed anymore ie swimming, any physical activies, became like a weatherman checking the weather everyday because the rain or high winds would put me off going out, yeah you get the point..., it became rediculous, some of you might get it some might think i was being stupid, but it got to the point where i had to change something, thats when i started researching hair transplants, after hours and days reseaching i made the choice to go with dr erdogan. His results and other peoples experiances were faultless, he seemed very proffesional and experieanced.

 

 

ASMED expericence

 

Il try and keep this short because i could go on forever about my experience. But of course if you have any questions feel free to ask, il try and answer them the best i can.

I live in UK so i had to travel to turkey where i was greeted by the asmed driver, who is a overall great guy, very friendly. The staff at asmed clinic are second to none, they really do make the differance in the whole experiance, some of the most caring, attentive, friendly people ive come across, it really made you feel at home the whole time, the little details like the foot and leg massages and ipadarrow-10x10.png to watch films and there constant efforts to talk to you and make sure your okay ect really put me at ease throughtout, dr Erdogan is a true proffesional, a perfectionist i would say, he was very imformative, reasurring, and funny, you can tell he has a real passion for what he does and i knew i made the right decision to go with him, the procedure was tireing come the end of the day, uncomfortable at times but soon dealt with but the injections to numb the pain, i would highly recommend staying at the hotelarrow-10x10.png they recommend it was amazing, clean, and the breakfast in the mornings was sooo good, the flight home was a little uncomfortable, purely for the fact i was walking round in a busy airport and plane with propbably a few stares, i tried not to take notice tbh but it was a nice relief to get home and take it all in, ive finally gone ahead with it and its done, now for the waiting game...

 

 

 

Here are a few photos taken at asmed to show the extent of my hairloss..

how much donor do you have left?

 

Apparently I have a good donor capacity can't remember the exact number he said but it was in the 8,000's I'd say I have about another 4000 left

Hey ussoccerfan yeah pimples are perfectly normal! I had a fair few myself, here and there, it's nothing to worry about, and Yeah although two months is the ugly duckling stage for most, minimal hair growth is expected, mine really started around 2.5 months noticeably, if you look at my two month photos I had some fine hairs growing in the transplanted area, it differs from person to person really, some people are early growers some people not so much, goodluck with yours though, hopefully see some good progress soon

I did have a quick look at your post op pics but didn't comment because I didn't want to hijack that guys thread haha might be worth creating a new thread to keep track of your progress and help others follow it, but from what I can see it looks very solid work, should have a nice outcome, looks very densely packed

Amanzing change pal. I'm just about 2 months out from ASMED myself so if I can experience that level of growth over the next month then I am going to be over the moon.

well, a few days untill my 4 month mark, cant say ive noticed much difference other than the hair length growing a bit, this is probably my hardest point, as the waiting is getting so hard, and the doubts are kicking in, i knoiw i have plenty of time left for hair to grow, its just a mental battle of thinking what if this is it kind of thing

im a little bit worried so some opinions would be appriciated greatly... ive attached some photo's the first one is my crown as it is now, now ive never really had a problem with my crown or noticed my thinning, but seeing some photoes ive taken today has me a bit worried, im preying its some kind of shockloss, but i think its mpb, ive been on propecia for about a year and 2 months now and was hoping it would save this area for a while im not sure its doing so now? the other three photos were taken a few weeks after my procedure, as you can see there isnt no where near as much thinning

I'm at nearly 4 months post op. This stage is crap. You really start wondering if it's going to happen. I can see a few hairs starting, but it's a really long wait.

 

We'll get there!!

You probably didn't wear your hair so short to expose the crown thinning. I would just stick with propecia since it maintains crown best and try not to worry/look at it too much.
