Dr. Koray Erdogan 5000 grafts

Recommended Posts

My Hair transplant correction coming up, some muscle growth, a small nose job, and some cool tattoos will really make me look even quite a bit better over the next year haha. That's the plan

Sounds like a good plan. Self-improvement and building confidence is what it’s all about. That said, the hairline is definitely improved, but I agree should be better for the grafts used. I’m rooting for your follow-up to go smooth and be a success I’m sure it will.

I'll be documenting everything in this thread so we will see. The thread will also by consequence see my nose job improvement too from all the hair progress pics.

40 pounds or 88kg. Took me 6-7 months. Went from probably over 20% body fat slightly to 11% body fat. I'm tired of dieting even though I want to get to 8%. I'm just gonna eat at maintenance calories for 3-4 weeks and restore my physiology to gain muscle and then add a small surplus of 175 calories to gain strength and size slowly for awhile now and try to maintain body fat level and then in year or so try to diet to 8% next time.

40 pounds is 18kg. Must have been a typo? I was really scratching my head there as you didn't look like an obese guy in any photo. Losing 88kg would have been like losing 200 pounds. :D

Do you have any photos with a different hair style other than pompadour?...not that a pompadour doesn’t suit you, just curious how it would look in similar lighting with a different style.

I do not lol. It would look pretty nice if the line was solid, angular, and not see through though

No I don't do anything just shampoo and condition. My hair is coarse and stiff so it doesn't just fall down

Your donor looks quite good with that many grafts harvested. Do you know what size punch asmed used?

Here's me this week with a recent haircut with a .5 gaurd buzzer on the side. And I believe asmed used a .8 or .9 mm punch

That looks very good.

 

do you think rubbing off your crusts semi early (day 5) could have affected the yield? Was asmed instructing u to remove them by that time?

My crusts did come off pretty early and I would gently massage them occasionally since they were soft from the washing they would have me do and so the soft flakes would flake off. Idk, it's possible.

Yeah the donor looks great imo. Your hair overall is improved a good amount compared to your pre op before any surgery. Your face is def framed now and you look younger. Yes, there are a couple weaker areas but I bet not many people notice besides your hair dresser and people mega focused because their own loss. However I understand your desire for more density as I feel the same for my situation. Your temple points also look excellent as it seems they were mostly gone before any surgery

Yeah just the section I drew the designing right above your post is where I need reinforced the most and what will have the biggest impact for me in terms of framing my face and really making me finally look like I'm not losing my hair. But given I had 5000 grafts I definitely did not meet the 90% minimum growth warranty from ASMED given where I was before and after the procedure with them. Because people that do meet that minimum 90% growth with 5000 grafts have significantly more impact of change than I did. Also remember, the Pic of me in the button up shit with palm trees from a long time ago was before I had any surgery not just the asmed one. I had 2000 grafts before I had 5000 at asmed.

Has asmed told you how many grafts would be required to reinforce those areas? I would guess max 1000 since it’s only reinforcing not rebuilding?

No they haven't. They just said that their goal will be to provide me with an excellent experience. So since the yield did not meet either mine or ASMED expectations, they probably will just account for what donor I have left, my age, my current hair situation, what they had attempted to do for me previously, my goals, and weigh all those things out to determine how many grafts should be used.

10 months

Really disappointed with how things turned out given where I started and how many grafts they used. Literally haven't had much of any change since 5-6 months post op

Before a nose job, new tattoos etc.. you need a new hairstyle for sure 

Bro seriously....

What would  you suggest... -_-

I think I look pretty fucking good with what I've got. You can only do so much with a hairline like mine. Let's see your hairstyle
