4296 grafts, Dr. Erkan Demirsoy, Super happy

Recommended Posts

hello all. 

i had my operation 2 days ago . where do i start from ? wow ! such an Amazing experience  ! at first the transfer to the hotel all went fantastic. 
Muzaffer, well, that guy is an asset to this clinic ! he arranged and helped, answered all my questions, such a nice , honest , patient guy. i am wearing hearing aids because i cant hear well even with them. he made sure that i understand everything and dont miss a thing ! i cant say enough how much appreciation i have for that guy , he was a life saver for me  !
one day after i landed in Istanbul, Muzaffel picked me up and we drove to the clinic which was on a 42th floor .. very high :) . the clinic was super clean and then i saw the doctor, we discussed about the hairline , there was no rushing at all, dr.Demirsoy drew my hairline and i loved it instantly . 
we started the operation with the local Anesthesia which for me was a lots of pain but i guess its individual to every person . after that the doctor came and done all the extraction himself ! it took around 3 hours  ! at first i asked to because i am very bald to try and take the highest grafts possible, they said that they will aim to 3500-4000 grafts depends on my donor area, i was ok with that. finally dr, Demirsoy manged to take 4296 grafts that covering all my front, top and much more closer to the crown then i thought it will be !!! i was super happy with that number ! i was charged by the way only for 4000 grafts , the other 296 was like a bonus to me . after the extraction we took a break and after the doctor came and we did the incisions . the 2 most important parts in the surgery the doctor is doing himself. every incision he made the nurse next to him counts with a counter device each one of the incision he makes so it fit exactly the graft number. the last part two nurses implanted all the grafts.  
i find dr. Demirsoy super professional , i think i made the best choice i could about my HT
i was suppose to fly back home 2 days later and i asked Muzzafer if i can early my flight by 1 day, he said sure , and moreover refunded me for the night i didn't stay, was also a shock for me, i didn't expect any refunds as i was the one who cancelled from now to now 1 night . what an amazing guy .
bottom line, i am very happy with all the service i got and would defiantly recommend to any who think about dr. Derirsoy and his team , i think he is one of the best in Turkey . 
i will keep this post updated with pictures.

Looks like great work. Hope the healing goes well. I found the first 10 days to be the toughest.

Are you using any minoxidil? My doctor keeps asking me to use it though i get scalp itch or dryness from it. I am at 122 days post op now and my growth rate is slow. Also i got 5000 grafts but yours look lot better than mine

    • Before the operation, you and the doctor can determine the planting plan. It is possible to plant 3,000 hair follicles and possibly 5,000 hair follicles. But how do you know that so many hair follicles have been planted?  If you actually plant a few hundred hair follicles or even thousands, you probably don't know?  So the question is coming. Is there a way to prove how many hair follicles I planted last?  Especially the manual FUE
    • Folks, Apologies for loosing track of this thread as I got occupied with other things in life. I would post some pictures soon. Almost 11 months have passed since my surgery . Everything is looking fine. My hair have grown well and has completely changed my front look. Only little downside I faced is thin donor on the back but I am fine with that considering how much of a difference it has made on my front look.  Now I think that it is time that I should start focusing on mid scalp and crown area and would schedule personal consultation with doctor  to see what are my options (BHT....May be if possible??). Please share if some of you came across certain threads related to body hair transplantation, and if that is a reliable option.  
    • Looks good. Next two months, but even next month are transformative. My hairs are still thin, but I'm hopeful they thicken, I don't know why they wouldn't. The hairline looks good, and it passes as natural, even with the shorter and thinner HT hairs.  Most people won't spend long enough looking at your hair to notice anything. Enjoy yourself out there and don't worry about it. Even if anything was suspected, passing it off as a bad haircut or even "that's just how my hair grows" is sufficient. I would be in shock if enough people approached you with questions for you to even waste time thinking of responses. Your hair looks good.
    • Looking back through the thread, I think your results look promising. You have new growth where there was none before. The growth you have is like my growth, very thin and curly. I too need to have it thicken up. I looked at myself in mirror (I'll try posting update tomorrow), and my hair looks very similar to yours. I see the area Bhatti worked on has more density, along with the new hairline. The issue you and I have is that the new density doesn't look good against the contrast with existing density. I recommend going to get a haircut like you had at 3 months, and especially thinning out the non-DHT prone crown (the toilet seat shaped area). It is the part that gets the most dense. I think that the two steps I would take is waiting for the thickening (not sure how long your or my case will take), and finding a flattering haircut.  I also started to thin (maybe fin shed, maybe I'm getting balder!) in my top+crown. So I gently push hair sideways. I'll try to explain tomorrow on my post. There's no issue with styling your hair to fit you. I see a lot of posts that essentially want care-free hair. They want to look good all the time from all angles. I just wanted to not be bald! If it takes a few seconds to a few minutes to accomplish a look you like, it is what it is. Again, I recommend modifying styling options. Without a haircut, your HT hair is at a disadvantage to the native highly-dense hair. If you don't want to cut it all down to a 3 month point, I recommend using thinning shears and reducing the amount your non-recipient hair "falls" on itself. Any additional perceived density on surrounding hair reduces perceived density on recipient hair site.
