    Hey guys, i have an active thread on a different forum but wanted the opinion of this community as well as well. I had my surgery done with Koray Erdogan on march of this year, 7 months ago, and had 2800 grafts placed in the front and 800 in the crown. Now i'm at the 7 month mark and am really horrified by the progress. I know about growth timelines etc but at 7 month we should at least have an indication about how a transplant will turn out, and mine is not looking good. It looks like not even half of the implanted grafts in the front hairline grew based on the density and the spacing of the growing hairs compared to post op.

    Here are some pictures, one of them is with greasy hair but should give you an idea about how poor the growth is.

    For my case, i don't know what to do at this point, i will have to wait until the 12 month mark before doing anything about this, but i can already see i won't have a good result if i am being realistic and honest with myself. Even worse my transplant looks unnatural because of the low density and my naturally thick and dark hair, it just looks awful and has caused me a ton of anxiety, i wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy. What are my options here? Which surgeon should i book with immediately to repair the low density with as few grafts as possible as well as making the hairline look more natural? I fear cutting my losses and shaving it off isn't an option because of the uneven growth that it might look really bad with a buzz cut.. but maybe it will just look receding which i would take over the unnatural transplant look any day.

    It's too early to panic, the photos don't look as bad as you think. The last thing you need is another doctor putting in more grafts and ruining your hairline before it has been one year.

    Yeah, one week from month 8 now and have pretty much lost hope, but my hairline feels ruined already, I wear my hair in a fringe to cover it. My issues are density, looks like so many grafts never survived, and doubles in the hairline as well. I need to get this fixed =(

    9 months after 2800 grafts in frontal third, is it safe to say the surgery was a failure?.. I hope I can get this fixed soon, =(

    Thank you bro, it's been pretty damn tough and the clinics response has been horrible, i am compiling all my conversations with the clinic and that hack Erdogan as well as my pictures into something i can publish so that more guys are not screwed the way i was

    I strongly doubt i will get see a dime of my money since Asmed is purely a money making operation, i hope to prevent other guys from falling into this trap.

    you can see from the immediate post op pics that the density is low.

    Its not failed, its a typical case of trying to cover a large area with a small number of grafts. You need another FUE to increase density

    How was the 3600 grafts number decided ?

    Are you joking? The implanted density was on average 44fu/cm2, with my hair caliber it should have been super dense look at some keser or Lorenzo results with the same density and caliber

    it does not look like dense packing at all from the post op
    looks like most grafts did grow so its not failed, the issue is that ASMED did not explain that you would need another pass.

    Maybe you had budget constraints?

    There are risks packing too much over a large area, better to have 2 FUE a year apart to increase density once blood flow has been increased so so I dont see the issue, it safer to have done in 2 steps

    Not sure if you are trolling me here bro but they put 2800 grafts in the first 2.5cm of my hairline, my hair caliber is 68 microns and the very front hairline was implanted at at least 46 fu/cm2, that should be more than enough density for a great result based on the hundreds of transplants i have seen.

    I have large gaps just behind the hairline where no grafts grew unfortunately, it looks like the techs really fucked me here, clinic can't answer why it failed since Koray was barely present during the entire surgery

    Are you taking meds? I think you may just be having a late delay in regrowth, give it another 3 months before making a final judgement.
