Congrats OP! I'm taking the plunge with Nadimi this summer and I'm anxiously excited.
Can you go into a little more detail about the procedure from start to finish? How has the pain been? Were you originally scheduled for 1680 or did she extract a little more as she saw fit?
UPDATE: I just got done with a consultation with DR. HECTOR GARCIA. The cost for the consultation came out to be $20.00, however he told me to forget about it as the ATM wasn't working and they didn't accept cards.
I was told during my consultation that I have very poor (looking) donor area, and that my previous surgeries with Dr. Konior likely took my best grafts. It seemed like Dr. Garcia has a bleak outlook on how successful we can be moving forward with my hair transplants. I DID APPRECIATE THE HONESTY AND A GOOD SIGN HE'S NOT JUST TRYING TO GET GET A QUICK BUCK.
He suggested around 1000 grafts and then I was provided a quote of around $4,200 USD. I thought the quote had been a mistake as I know NOBODY in Colombia is paying that much money for 1000 grafts, but it was correct. I sent a message to inquire as to why I was being charged that and I was told because my donor area was difficult to extract from and was going to take careful attention....
SUMMARY: I think Dr. Garcia is likely a good surgeon, however I think he tried to give me "gringo" pricing which I didn't much appreciate as I'm Colombian and know better.
STAY TUNED FOR MY OTHER CONSULTATIONS!
