Hey everyone, 

Quick update: I arrived yesterday to instanbul and did a pre-op checkup and cosultation with the Dr.

Everyone in the clinic, the Dr and my coordenator, suzana, is amazing and i get the feeling that they will do anything they can to insure my satisfaction.

In the consultation, I asked the Dr the "big questions" - Why did the hair grew with a mediocure density and what are we gonna do differently this time to change that.

He examined me, before and after the shave, and he came to the conclution that even though most of my grafts were doubles (2.1 average) i have alot more singles. He explained that we do not see bald areas, but the density is more or less the same through out the HT area, that means the graft did grow but some as single instead of doubles. 

I asked him what is the cause for that, may the grafts got hurt in the proccess? He said that it happen some times when one hair is strong and thick and the other is weaker, and the medical sience do not know yet the particular reason for it. He said propecia reduce the chance for it to happen, but overall it's just happens.

He said that 1200 graft should give me more density, and now because the area is not totaly bald like before, he can do better desity as he is doing less incisions close to one another and more incisions between the first HT hairs. With this number he took in the account that some doubles will grow as singles even though it's been 1.5 years and it's not neceserly going to hapoen again - just to be safe.

Before I came the number i was thinking about was 1000-1200 so his plan is reasnoble in my opinion

I also said that this my sec HT and i don't want to come back again- and i want to be setisfied with outcome - the Dr really appreciated that i put my trust in him once more, even though i'm not happy with density and he promised me i will be happy this time.

I'm not a negative person, and the first HT really improved my situation 1000% than before, so i gave him credit where i thought he did a great job:

1. The extraction was a masterpiece in my opinion - all the hair dressers i go to are amazed - no scars, even extraction - looks completly natural. 

2. The hair line is exactly what i wanted (even though lack in density). No zig zag, no doubles, fits perfectly with the shape of my head.

3. The temple point are also very nice and natural.

4. When i comb my hair down it looks great, the lack of density do not shows.

So the op is monday 7.9.20, wish me luck!

I trying to me optimistic and stay positive. Lets hope that in 8 months i will update you guys that i'm super happy! 

Here is me with shaved hair- not so bad ;)

I just saw, it is exactly the same good luck! I think that from my 4 months pics you guys got the wrong impression. when the hair is down it's looks pretty good butwhen it is combed up it looks s

Same team.  I was told the one making the extraction and placing has 10 year xp.

Well, im not planing on doing another ht. So this result is for good. I think that it will be better for sure. But we will see to what extant.

All the best dude - the work looks really clean. Were you happy with Dr Erdogan's explanation? Also are you going to start taking Fin again? I would recommend doing so, even on a small dose (1mg two/three times a week) if you got sides last time.

yeah i take fin for the last 10 years soi will continue to do so.

To my opnion, The explanation I got may explain part of the reason. at the middle of the hair line i got poor growth and it can't be explained with doubles growing as singles, because the hairline should have singles anyway and it still grew with poor density. I don't think that there is 1 particular reason.

what he did defferently this time and I hope it will make a difference - is that he used another microscope to examin the grafts and the strong once he place in a stratigic locations - rather than just placing the graft based on how many hairs they have.

I mean the scarring in the donor overall

I doubt he has any ! Didn’t have any before and I doubt 1200 will cause any scarring as the first 4000+ didn’t

As kraistoff said, it's a small transplant, and they do the extraction with skill so no scars before, and my guess is that I will have no scars now. the red dots i have now are very small.

Hey all,

10 day post op update.

the scabs are gone, and the density looks good. I just hope all the grafts will survive.
the back right side is a bit less dense than the back left side, but with longer hair i hope it won't be noticed.

I really hope the first HT hair will continue to grow normally and that it wasn't harmed during the 2nd HT, and i won't suffer any kind of shockloss.


the donor area is healed and there is no scars just a little bit of redness but it's normal.

i took pics in 3 different lightings (daylight, camera flash, and warm light)
