HLC Turkey Ankara 2179 grafts in hairline

Recommended Posts

Hello, my name is Andrew, i'am from Russia.

Due to questions from some users of this forum I decided to share my experience with HLC.

Some words about this clinic. HLC is located in Turkey, Ankara, the chief doctor is Dr. Ozgur Oztan. Clinic used stick and place tehnique, manual extraction and they extract no more than 1200 grafts per day.

 

Age: 27

Norwood level: 2-2.5

Date of operation: 13-14.02.2017

Meds before surgery: min/fin for 2 years

 

Choosing clinic

In my choice I have only considered FUE, manual extraction, clinic with good reviews and a price in the range of 2-3 euros. So I began to consider ASMED and HLC.

During online consulatation with ASMED i was offered 3000 grafts and I decided that this is too much. And HLC offered abous 2000 grafts and this was the main reason for choosing HLC.

 

At the moment 1.5 months have passed since my surgery and now i'am at ugly duckling phase... :)

Nice. Looks like it will be a great result. Unfortunately, the shed and long wait is coming, so enjoy the new hairline for the next while!

Just stop by and wish you the best result. Tks a lot for your messages.

Looking at your pictures, did you implant some grafts at your sides too? Was it your choice or Dr Ozgur's recommendation?

Thanks! :)

 

If you look at my preop picture in profile, you can see that alopecia pretty much "ate" my sides. So, of cource, i planned to implant this area. But i didnt say this to Ozgur, because i wanted to see how he would design a new hairline. So, our opinions coinsided...

Work looked quite good and growth so far is right on schedule. You look to be headed to a great result! If I may enquire, you mentioned the stick and place technique used, so they went 1 for 1, they immediately extracted and implanted the same hair no real time sitting out of body? or am I understanding you incorrectly?

A little bit incorrect. In one session they extract about 500-700 grafts and after that implant them in recepient area.

 

"For regular hair transplants, a surgeon typically makes all of the recipient site incisions first, or in stages, then transplants the follicular hair units into each recipient site on by one. With a stick and place technique, however, the surgeon will transplant the follicular hair unit immediately after the incision is made. The surgeon will continue to make a recipient site and then place the graft immediately after until the hair restoration procedure is complete."

 

 

 

3.5 months update :)

Thanks :) It would be interesting to follow your progress. I wish you a good result!

They are definitely a hidden clinic cause they dont invest a lot of money in advertising. Their works speaks for themselves.

I suspected it but once I got here I realized that they don't do crazy marketing simply bc they don't need it. They are fully booked up with only 3 surgeons that perform surgeries. Their business model is unparalleled; no technician touches your scalp, only surgeons. Max 1200 grafts a day in 2 different sessions of up to 600 each (morning/afternoon), only manual extractions.. etc. I will comment much more. Will post soon. This has definitely been a terrific experience and I can't wait for the results. Your progress at month 5 speaks by itself.
