interested what you have to say about my case
About me - i’m years old, my temples started to recede with about 25 years and stopped where they are now. Previous generations have the same grade of receded temples, nothing worse. To be on the safe side i started taking Finasteride about 3 years ago, no side effects.
I always wanted to have full hair and want to close my temples. The hairline is fine for me. On the pictures you can see my actual hair status styled with hair-wax and non styled.
The surgeons i have contacted so far (Hairline Clinic and Asmed do break the bank for me) recommend the following
Dr. Ali Karadeniz
Dense-Packing, with no visible difference between original and transplanted hair areas
„In hair transplantation, 100 hair needs to be transplanted for 1 cm2 coverage with high density“
Dr. Resul Yaman
around 50 grafts / cm2 (which is not the maximum, will be decided on site)
Both do the consultation / hairline discussion and incisions but do not extract and place the graft.
Dr. Yaman is recommended by this site altough i am not 100% sure what to think about that. There are a few casing speaking against him but it does seem that they try to actively re-build their reputation. Contact was great and the similiar patient-cases here and here which were sent to me as a showcase do look promising.
Dr. Karadeniz seems to be very ethnical but despite mentioning on several youtube videos that assistants doing the extractions is not a good decisions and not allowed … now does quote a surcharge for him doing the extractions (instead of his assistants.
On the spanish and french forums there are more patient experiences than here.
- Do you think i am a right candidate for a hair transplant?
- Is there one surgeon you would recommend above the other?
- Are these densities „enough“ to get a natural / dense look? If you have a look at my photos - you can see my scalp here and there on the front. This would be fine for me. Is that achievable?
Thanks for your input!

I am also looking for a clinic in Turkey. The last info I get is that the Turkish Ministry of Health has started to check the clinics for accreditation to create a standardized service. Maybe that can be a point to be looked before deciding. I have 2 clinics in my mind tho. Hard choice...
