After 10 years in a system I’m off to Turkey for my first HT this month.

going to have about 4800 grafts. 800 take from my beard as I’m a NW5.

If anyone has transitioned out of system and can give any advice please let me know…

only a few people know I wear so I am planning on staying home during the winter, and if I go out local will wear a hat. praying after 4 months or so I will have good enough growth, have accepted the density will never be on par with a system and that ok at the age of 42.

 

any tips or maintenance on how to ensure good growth after the transplant is recommend. Already taking 1g of fin.

will post up some pictures soon 🙈 🙏🏼 tough few months ahead. Nervous but know it’s best for the long game. It’s been a great 10 years in the system no regrets.

beyond taking meds and taking care to not dislodge grafts the first few days post-OP, the results are 100% in the hands of your surgeon.

Not saying you have, but with how many bad clinics there are in Turkey, you may be making a mistake. 

Don't want to make assumptions, but if you've only specified you're going to Turkey, it implies you haven't done extensive research.

No I have done a lot of research and even spoken to people who have had it done at the same clinic and follow them on social media their results are good.

it was between them and Eugenixs but I needed more annual leave for India and flights were further away from U.K.

the clinic I’m going to is well established, I feel comfortable in my decision.

in terms of transition I want to wear a hat for social occasions post transplant, how long until I can wear a winter beanie hat or baseball cap ?

I’ve read exercise is 1 month wait? 

anymore rate these laser combs or something to stimulate the scalpe to get blood flow?

also once hair starting growing when are you allowed to get a first cut? Is in good to go grade 5 all over or just a gentle trim…

Will post up pictures later next week 👌

Are you comfortable saying which clinic? It pays to be very skeptical of social media. Have you closely seen the results of the people you've spoken to?

Do you know the names of the doctor and technicians that produced the good results?

Do you know if the same people working on your head?

Remember, a clinic is just the business, it is the people that perform the surgery.

Hair restoration requires knowledge and skill.

You need to pick the *people* that have performed consistent, repeatable results ... anything else is russian roulette.

Yes Dr. Ahmet Yildirim did all the slits, don’t recall all the technicians names, they take the hair out and put them in, but you do have to put some trust in the Dr selection of the technicians, it’s not like you can look them up on Linked in.

 

I was pretty happy with how it went I’ve got a lot to cover and only half way there the plan is to have number 2 done in late 2023 so won’t be 2024 until I see the end result.
