31 years old German patient with a familiar history of just frontal baldness without cases over Norwood 3/4 scale. Dr. Pekiner examined his hair and found no signs of miniaturization on mid, crown and sides; for this reason he was allowed not to take any medication except some supplements.
Surgery target was to restore a juvenile and dense hairline.
Treated area: 31 cm2 + connection zones
Single grafts: 234
doubles: 932 (1864)
triples: 916 (2748)
multiples: 223 (892)
Total of grafts: 2305
Total of hair : 5738
Hair/graft ratio: 2.5
Implantation density: around 65 grafts per cm2 on the first line, decreasing going back.
Hair caliber: medium/thin
I did not take medicine, I do not deny that, and it is mentioned in the report. I was advised to take Propecia and minoxidil, but to support my native hair, not the transplanted ones. If the HT is useless if not taking drugs you should tell this before the HT.
I do not care about dr.Kaan reputation. I was first from Russia, I told dr.Kaan about Russian forum devoted to HT, his team representatives registered there after and he got many clients from there. I made him a free advertising.
Sure, now I am disappointed, I spent money and time and did not get the result.
By the way, my report was deleted on Italian forums, so maybe reports from other people with bad results have also been deleted.
It doesn't look probable, this case was treated at a density of 50 grafts per cm2 as average; dense but a not super dense pack like 60 or more needed for Norwood 1 to 3 with high native density and tiny grafts and hair caliber.
Dr. Pekiner started his career in the hair transplant world at dr. Keser's clinic, that is a fact. Many patients ask where he was formed and where he learned the manual FUE techinque. Stating the truth is not a promotional use of his experience at Keser's clinic, we only wrote this in his private curriclum vitae and it is specified he did not perform surgeries at Keser's, while he did at HLC later.
Dr. Keser is not mentioned everywhere else except in this brief CV of dr. Pekiner, for what reason we should omit where he trained and worked before?
