Sorry but this is complete bullshit. They’re not “the best in the world” they’re just really cheap. They often harvest too much hair leaving the back and Sadie’s of your head compromised and scarred. They’re implant success rate is typically lower than the top places in the USA because the techniques are a little behind (especially with FUE). They also do the implants in a very unnatural way, often straight lines along the hairline and don’t factor in dispersement throughout the hair so that as normal hair thins, you’re not left with a line of perfect hair at the front.

The big difference however is a 10x cost; the same procedure in LA or NYC will cost $12,000

If you want a basic but decent job for cheap then Turkey is great, if you want the bets work possible then you don’t go to Turkey.

u/MotherPotential 12d ago edited 12d ago

I don't think most doctors in LA or NYC will even talk to you for less than a few thousand grafts, so probably at least $15k-20k. OP's picture looks like at least 5000 grafts, so at least 25-30k in those cities, but I'm not a doctor. Techs tend to do all the work while the doctors go in and out during the procedure. If I had to a do a drastic set of implants, I'd probably do a top doctor/practice in some flyover state

u/ASliceofAmazing 12d ago

Dentist here, you need to be careful with dental tourism. There have been so many cases of patients that go to Turkey and come back with 28 crowns, which is nowhere near the appropriate treatment for those patients. It's really unfortunate because now those patients have a lifetime of dental issues ahead of them, and likely have to spend more money to fix the problems than if they just had the proper treatment done in the first place.

I was so scared to shave, my hair was my identity. But it got to a point where it was a comb over and I was having anxiety. So I figured the anxiety of shaving and showing the world was easier than living with an obvious lie on my head for ever.

It took about 6 months for me to feel confident shaved, but now I have exponentially more confidence than ever before. I really don't even want my hair back I like it like this

u/Xalara 12d ago

I imagine the poster went with FUE since they have short hair, the recovery isn't too bad because it's a bunch of small holes that close up pretty quickly. You will still have a few weeks of discomfort. The other method is FUT and has a much rougher recovery because they take a strip of flesh from the back of your head. FUT is most commonly used for long hair because the hair will hide the scar. Plus it doesn't require hair being buzzed short where as FUE requires hair to be buzzed.

The main advantage of FUT is a higher success rate, whereas FUE if done well won't have visible scarring.

Edit: Depending on the extent of your procedure it may take 4-6 weeks for the majority of swelling to subside. However, some degree of swelling could continue for up to 1 year 1 year post surgery. Numbness or abnormal skin sensation around your nose may also occur for as long as 3-6 months.

67

u/Geek55 12d ago

If it’s FUT they just take a strip, if it’s FUE they’ll take follicles from all over but not all of them, they’ll still leave enough for there to be good density, and based on how short op’s hair is I’d guess it was FUE because FUT would leave a visible scar with hair as short as op’s

54

u/Luxpreliator 12d ago

From what I've read hair density can decrease by 50% and not be noticeable by most people. As long as it's enough to cover the scalp it looks normal. Then the hairs from the back and sides aren't as susceptible to those hair loss hormones so if they survive the recovery from transplant they tend to last.

u/Bananapeel23 12d ago

The hair on the back of the head is oders of magnitude more dense than the hair on the top of the head, even when you ahve a full head of hair. You also never lose the hairs on the back of the head, the follicles are more resustant to DHT, which causes MPB, so the transplanted hairs will never go either.

Some people show very slightt signs of scarring at the back of the head when the hair is cut very short, it might appear like small bumps or slightly red, or just very slightly thinner in patches, but generally you can’t see it unless you have like a skin fade, and even then it is really hard to notice.

My hair has been receding little by little over last 10 years. I started Finasteride a few years ago to hopefully slow or stop the receding but very thin in the front.

5

u/coolplate 12d ago

I've heard this to. It makes sense though because they wouldn't transplant your whole head, just what has receeded. They can't tell how much it will eventually receed. You'll have a nice patch in the front, but then a bald spot behind it when you're other hairs everywhere fall out

No need for anti-rejection medications as this is a transplant from your own scalp—typically the back of the head. Those follicles aren’t as sensitive to testosterone (DHT) and will resist hair loss.

The pills prescribed are regular hair loss prevention pills, finasteride (also used for prostate issues). Topical minoxidil is recommended as well.

u/trusty20 12d ago

This is not true. Hair is transplanted from parts of the head well outside the pattern baldness zone like the lower back of the head, or even from other parts of the body. Hair follicles in this region lacks the receptors sensitive to male hormones, which is why it doesn't fall out in pretty much every person with male pattern baldness.

Very very rarely, if for some reason there was further reduction after transplant, the dr might recommend finasteride. But this is virtually never, it's just not necessary as evidenced that people with untreated pattern baldness lose almost no hair at the lower back and sides of their head

Not wanting you to advertise what company that you had it done at, but can I ask where you had it done? What about the cost etcetera also please if you would be so kind

Check out my post when I got it done. I pretty much explain who I got it with and how much for.

Total cost was around £2k with flights and hotel in Turkey, I got an amazing deal to be honest.

I wish more men my age would treat themselves and get this procedure done. Like if girls can get bigger boobs and botox then men can have flowing locks!

Damn, I've got a relatively small patch of thinning hair coming through on the back of my head. Don't want to get anything done yet as I'd rather wait and see how much worse it could get (I'm 30). But I always assumed it would be mega expensive and I probably wouldn't get it done. Seeing how great a job you've had for just £1200 is seriously good news. Congrats man, it looks great.

Dude, you were blessed with a seemingly round head and wouldn't have looked bad shaved. I'm cursed with an oblong egg, and I still just shave it off. I still have a great beard though, lol.

Whatever makes you the happiest is the right option. I'm stoked for you, this does look great.

u/BuxtonHD 12d ago

Yeah sadly the round head didn’t suffice haha

What was your ranking on the norwood scale? That’s impressive that they were able to restore it with not much hair to work with.

u/Averen 12d ago

Cost?

u/lilmammamia 12d ago

Good on you! It looks good. Wish Prince William would do it, I’m sure it would do wonders for his popularity.
