Hello,

This is Hazem from Jordan and I am posting here to share my personal experience with a Hair Transplant surgery I did on 22nd Jan, 2020 done by Dr. Resul Yaman at Yaman Syrgery Centre in Istanbul. 

At the time I am posting this thread, it is day 10 post-op and I want to over some points really quick that may be useful to other members over here:

- From my experience,  I can say that the surgery was way more painful than what I have heard and expected. Not sure if that is normal or just my surgery did not go very well. It worth mentioning here that Dr. Resul was so kind and kept on checking by himself at all stages.

- Total grafts transplanted claimed to be 4680 grafts (Single 722/ Double 2905/ Multi 1053), while I feel that number is overstated even though the surgery took 9 hours non-stop.

- I will keep sharing photo updates for you to check the progress and also to hear back from you of what do you think. :)

Here are some photos before and right after the operation.

@Hazem92 Good luck for your recovery, Dr. Yaman is in fact used to make these numbers, in reality you can never be sure if the number of follicular units is really what they say.  I am curious to see your donor area.

I agree with you, it was more painful than I had expected/read about but it was okay once the anesthesia kicked in. The work looks good so far, but I am just curious did you have loss in the crown? That seems like a lot of hair for such a small area. I would not worry about the numbers while I was there some people had 2000 grafts, 3000 grafts and some even more. So I don't believe they always quote 4000 grafts. I went in for a wash almost everyday and not everyone had over 4000 grafts. They also give out a sheet which has the breakdown of singles, doubles and multiples and for me at least it added up. They should give it to you before you leave. Hope everything turns out great for you

Had a similar amount by Dr Y back in July - hurt like hell too but thought the team were pretty good. So far, pretty happy and think I'll end up thrilled with my result. Happy growing. You chose a great Dr IMO

Thank you for your comment, and yes I agree with you. We will never be sure about the actual number but to be honest the results is what really matters here :D .. the donor area is recovering just fine, in 2 days I will be posting photos of 2 weeks post-op.

Thank you so much for your comment and kind wishes, I hope yours also went very well. Yes you are right, they gave me a breakdown of the grafts transplanted which brings some kind of relief to be honest. :D and yes my crown area was also balding with very thin blond hair. The Doctor was honest and said that it will be just covered up but wont be dense like the frontal area. (20 graft/cm2 vs 44 graft/cm2) which I also dont find very accurate, but let us wait, pray, and see how it progress :)

Do you recommend him? 

Well, I think I do recommend him as a doctor, but again I am still waiting for the results to come up and accordingly I will be more able to tell. However, for the operation itself, I think everyone should think twice before proceeding.

The risks of these large sessions exist for the donor area, but I think you will have a good result.

You are right, I totally agree with you. I hope it turns out well eventually 😁

You can make update?

Sure, below are the most recent photos of around 4 months post surgery.

The donor area healed well, the hairline looks good while I still see some double hair grafts in front, which is quite disappointing.

There is still some redness and mild irritation in the recipient area, for that I use Nizoral Shampoo.

Still waiting for the front and crown areas to get fuller and thicker (hopefully) 😄
