FUE 3070 grafts Dr Koray Erdogan July 26 2018

Recommended Posts

So they got back to me and after the 12 month mark I can go for a touch up. Just wanna be sure that if I do I’ll be seen go by the Dr more as I don’t wanna potentially waste more grafts, I’m not sure at this point.

I'm sorry bro, it's an awful feeling knowing this clinic flushed your precious grafts down the drain, all in the name of optimizing for profits, I would go with someone ethical for your repair like Keser or Kaan

Keser sounds like a good bet

I’m in the same boat as you, although not been offered a touch up yet. Hopefully it will improve

i’d be shocked if Erdogan was more involved if you go back. it’s the chance you take going to this tech mill. i’d go to someone that’s more involved than just drawing the hairline in 20minutes. so if/when you get subpar results, you can atleast have the peace of mind you did everything in your power to have a good result and went to a Dr that actually took time out of his day to give you the attention you deserve

Guys check this dreadful growth on an asmed patient. He just posted it on YouTube. Asmed should be ashamed of themselves. This is NOT a one off this is happening more and more over the past 18 months.

This guy is at 9 months. I dont want to hear no BS from people saying hes still go time, this is no where near what it should be at 9 months even for a slow grower.

Poor guy,

 

I’m starting to get really worried about my result too. I am told by clinic that it takes time and all will be good. My new coordinator sounds like a nice guy , but he isn’t a hair transplant specialist. 

We paid a lot of money , so I feel as though we at minimum should be allowed to speak to the surgeon or head tech . 

We all did research, we all checked the results before we went , we all made an educated decision to go to Asmed. What has changed ?

These continued substandard results coming out of Asmed are just not acceptable.

I vote for a moratorium on Asmed being included on the recommendation list until the results start improving and an explanation is offered as to why the quality control has slipped so dramatically.

The members of this forum are trying their best, as Kraistoff mentioned, to become well informed and educated about the HT world to avoid these exact predicaments.

To simply continue to ignore this inadequacy and keep them on the recommendation list couldn't possibly  bode well for this site's repute as an unbiased source of credible information.

I would say to anyone looking at before and afters that absolutely do not look at what the clinic posts on forums and its website. Look at patients' own posted reviews and photos because these are your on average results.

that video is very similar to @Payam, yet the feedback this forum gives is that its not supposed to be true density and you have to style it a certain way and under correct lighting and angles...

granted it’s not the result of the OP of this thread so we shouldn’t focus on that one nor other recently bad ASMED results. Good luck to Kraistoff in whatever you decide to do

What the actual fk? How did this use 2000 grafts?! The mods really need to get onto the clinic to explain all of our recent results.

That is worrisome.  It is the purpose of any forum to critique. A forum is used to engage in user feedback and response and it isnt a one way streak.  Sometimes comments may be a painful thing to swallow.  It is up there for a reason.  Not to have you accept it blindly.   

Ask real patients with no agenda as to how they feel for feedback.  

This result you posted definitely is worrisome.  I get more feedback on folks needing repairs and it isn’t just with the surgeon indicated here.  There are disclaimers people are afraid of, but shouldn’t be.  Courts understand the nature of disclaimers and can see unfair intent in them.  Like I mentioned before, if you are raped, but then told to sign another disclaimer to not hold person responsible for the harm caused, the people and law will still hold that person accountable as per law.  

Elective procedure or not, it is duty of a surgeon to fully inform and not withhold anything.  

Lets hope the folks having repair issues now can get the proper care soon and can move on with their lives.

Guys,

We take all of our patient experiences  seriously. We strive to provide a voice for patients, while maintaining fairness for surgeons. We will reach out to Dr. Erdogan, about this result. 

In light of recent comments about other organizations. I would like everyone to know that we have battled free-speech lawsuits before so that patients have a place to speak and be heard. Silencing patients and removing threads goes against what we stand for, rest assured this type of thing does not go on here. I truly feel that’s why our recommendations stand for something and why this forum is popular.

This forum does its best to try to silence patients who complain about their result because it happend to me. I have been complaining for some time about the shoddy work i got from ASMED/ERDOGAN. My hairline is now a mess. I have grafts sticking up from hairline with multi grafts used and a scalp scared as fuck which you can see in bright lights because of the pluggy appearance.

We’ve banned you, because you create multiple accounts and multiple aliases to unfairly malign the surgeon. Part of keeping a well maintained and fair environment is not allowing individuals to pose as multiple people by creating duplicate accounts. This is now your 6th account. If we allowed such behavior the reality would be skewed and that wouldn’t benefit the community in the slightest.

Now that’s not true. The truth is the vast majority of patients are still receiving quality results and I have no reason to believe your results would be bad. If you haven’t documented your journey please do so and also create a patient website to track your progress.

Vast majority receiving quality results? This seems to be true in the past with this clinic. At present, the evidence we are all seeing is the exact opposite. Asmed needs to address the quality issues - why the dramatic inconsistency? Huge numbers of grafts and yet still density issues...

What was once a sure bet high end, bang for buck clinic (never 100% guaranteed, but as close as it gets) has now become a mill turning out some really below average results; all in the space of a year or so. It's terrifying that a change this drastic is possible.

This is absolutely not acceptable. This is a poor result and still will be at 12 months. Dr Erdogan must respond candidly on why this is happening and how he aims to rectify it, otherwise he will loose lots of potential patients and they will either go to other better clinics in other parts of the world even if cost is higher or to his much cheaper competitors in Turkey.

I’m wondering if anyone knows how I can reliably count how many grafts per sq cm I have that have grown? I used a ruler and photoshopped a square over different parts and I’m getting 15-18 grafts per square mostly. I had 3070 grafts to cover a 70sq space, a large part of which was put into the space behind my hairline which needed not many at all. I’m thinking I should have around 45-50 per sq cm in the front. 15-18 is not even close.
