    as above il keep this updated with pictures and info but basically I’ve just had my first day of surgery I was a Norwood 5 they have used my bead hair / hair from the back of my head and will be using chest hair tomorow they have set a target number of graphs at 6000!
    It was done by cosmedica in Istanbul . I booked with there U.K. contact mike smith pm me if you would like his info but basically it’s
    £2800 including 2 day mega session maximum graphs
    Prp therapy
    3 nights at the radison all transfer from airport / hotel to surgery and back in nice Mercedes people carriers and mikes very helpful

    Here’s pictures there literally 2 hours after surgery



    Sorry for the brutal bloody picture

    In
    the first 4 hours anethestic hurt a little but the removal of graphs and insisdion were painless the reinserting of the hairs hurt a little especially after being operated on for nearly 10 hours but hopefully it will all be worthwhile

    Im assuming to get maximum grafts without using up to much donar hair . Cosmedica has amazing reviews on every website I’ve come across , 3 people I’ve spoke to who are staying and having the transplant done at the same time as me personally know people who have had amazing results from here and they have showed me pictures of these friends. There was 2 of us both pretty bald that had this I think
    Due to the number of grafts the others that are having 4000 or under haven’t used beard hair .

    I just always assumed beard hair was a last resort, AFTER you exhaust your back of head donor.

    I don’t know to be fair but clearly not in this clinic . I am apparntly getting over 6000 grafts so it would be a massive hit to the back of my head otherwise I think , I’d rather lose density on the under side of my beard apparntly I had 3800 odd grafts yesterday and 2800 more are coming today ! It’s gonna be a long day !

    The best for you.
    how much time with the operation? 6000 grafts are a lot,
    And mixing beard and hair chest with scalp hair is a good option?

    Hi mate , actually getting the operating done not including time with the consultants and stuff I did 10 hrs yesterday and 6 hrs today so 16 hours and yes it must be have a look on Facebook or what clinic at cosmedica/ dr acars reviews basically everybody in my hotel that I’ve spoke to have friends which have had hair transplants here’s and had amazing results , check there website they have just done Callum
    Best , I go back for bandage removal
    A clean up and check tomorow morning then fly back to London in the afternoon . it’s been a very good experience especially for the price it was not charged by the graft but it works out 46p or 60 cents per graft for me including all journeys to and from airport / clinic and 3 nights in the radison with breakfast included
    There’s other people here that have paid the same as me and received under 4000 grafts so I think this just emphasisis that there not just money grabbing but actually doing what they think is needed and gonna give the best results for you . There’s some people which have had 4000 grafts without any other hair then from there head used but others that have had there beard hair used it must be assessed and based on what dr a car thinks is the best for that person .

    Don't get too used to this look, it'll all be gone in the next 2-3 weeks. I'm just preparing you for it so you won't be so surprised when it happens haha! Looks good, though, happy for you!

    Not a big fan of using beard and chest hair for hair transplant however your transplant looks very clean and good,hope you get a great result.
    You also look like the american actor jon bernthal(probably spelled his name wrong).
