Looking good. Can you share how the entire experience was including the procedure and the overall cost that you incurred?

The experience was brilliant I couldn’t fault it one bit. The hotel was just average and the food wasn’t the best especially the breakfast. The procedure itself wasn’t that bad as I took a Xanax pill before hand which relaxed me the worst thing was the implantation of the grafts but that could be down to the fact that I didn’t ask for more anaesthetic because I just wanted it over and done with and that would slow them down so I just sat there and put up with the pain. The cost was 1.25 euro per graft and I had 3030 grafts and another €250 for hotel and transfers. All together it’s something I would do again and something I probably will have to do again depending on how my crown fills out. Hope this helps.

Hey man, thanks for the info

How much of the procedure was Dr Demirsoy present? Did he extract the follicles from the back of your head, then open the canals on your head then insert the grafts? Or was this mostly done by the nurses? What did he do himself personally?

I went with Dr Cinik for my first transplant which was fine , I always had Demirsoy my first choice but I couldn't get him at the timein 2017, I'm looking to go add another 1000-1500 grafts to thicken my hairline with him

Demirsoy performed the extractions first then he did the incisions second and then lastly the nurses performed the implanting of the grafts bud. Hope this helps mate I’m thinking of going back myself for the crown filling in.

WEEK 16 UPDATE!!

Everything still the same and I’m happy with the growth so far what’s your thoughts guys?? I shaved my head 2 weeks ago down to a number 1 in hopes that the new transplanted hair will grow back at the same time as my hair at the back and sides.

I'm interested in the results you'll have. Only 3000 grafts for that surface isn't much but ARMAMED is top tier imo so you could have very good results.

Yes bud I agree. I’m more than likely going to have to go back and get a second procedure probably.

I'm at 10 months since my visit to Demirsoy and I've still new hairs popping up.
That’s good to know mate it’s hard to see the end I’m only 4 months and wondering how good my results going to be all I can do is wait. This covid 19 lockdown isn’t helping things if I was at work I could take my mind off of it but atm that’s all I’m thinking about.

Your donor looks good but since you are headed to a Norwood 6, you will probably need a second procedure.

How many total possible grafts did the doctor say you have available? Im guessing you can squeeze out another 2-3k, but particularly for the crown and back I would look to beard and body hair, and save the donor for the front.

Put it this way, would be a million times worse if you had your appointment cancelled due to covid! This is a great time to be going through the early recovery stages.

Thank you bud he said I have 2500 grafts left to use. Dr Demirsoy doesn’t use beard or body hair so I would have to look at another surgeon for that. How many grafts do you think I need in my crown dude?
