I’ve been wanting to share too but never knew what I wanted to write about until I saw a topic about hair transplant.
Yes, it is very popular in Turkey and believe it or not some of the clinics are actually really good in terms of professionalism and service.
Well.. that’s been a very long entry so I am just gonna go ahead and talk about my own experience.
Like the majority of bald people, the cause of my baldness is genetics too. I started losing my hair at a relatively young age (15 or 16). At first it fell out little by little and didn’t bother me much, I was using hair gel, wax etc. for aesthetic reasons to look cool 🙂 but by the time I got 19-20 years of age my frontal line was losing the battle.
At first I really like this style because I have a thick beard and I thought it were going well with it but man that shine on my forehead was blinding.
One day my cousin said his colleague had a hair transplant at a clinic and gave me his number to talk about it. I spoke to the guy and heard about his experience, he said he was very lucky to have found that clinic.
I visited the clinic and had a consultation with the doctor, he was a plastic surgeon that explained me my problem very well and what we could do to fix it.
There are some medical things that he talked about, I am going to skip that all. Long story short he said there is nothing that medicines or vitamins can do in my situation. The way they work is that they stimulate the hairs that is sleeping under my scalp, since all the hairs under my scalp is long dead the only option is to do a hair transplant 🙂
I am putting a link of the technique if you want to see more: https://www.youtube.com/watch?
This is a surgical operation guys but don’t worry general anesthesia is not necessary, it is performed under local anesthesia( you can play with your phone or read during the operation). It hurts a bit at first but it’s nothing unbearable.
It took around 8 hours and I think they implanted around 5500 hair grafts ( this part is important because one graft does not mean one hair, one graft may include up to 5-6 hairs, but in average they say one graft includes around 2,5 hairs; so you can say they implanted around 13750 hairs)
First you lay face down for couple hours for extracting those grafts from the back of your head then you lay face up then they implant those grafts.
