This is the second time that I have had surgery performed by Dr Ilker Apaydin. I had a combined FUT + FUE procedure 14 months ago and due to the massive extent of my hair loss, Dr Ilker was doubtful that full coverage was going to be possible from one procedure, however, against all odds, due to the incredibly high number of grafts that were able to be harvested from my donor area, Dr Ilker managed to provide me with full coverage. The density was always going to be an issue however and this is the reason that I went back to Istanbul for a second procedure, i.e., to increase the density thickness covering of hair that I have on top of my head.
The procedure was as before: Start with an assessment from the doctor, have one’s head shaved and dyed black (easier to see the hairs), have a hair wash, do the harvest surgery, prepare the donor area with incisions, have lunch. By then the doctor’s seven nurses have divided up all the grafts and they are ready for insertion. This gets done by the nurses over several hours.
My whole procedure was 7.5 hours while before it was 11 hours, but then admittedly there were about 4200 more hairs to implant (the second procedure always yields a lower graft harvest number).
As this was my second procedure, I was not needing to have my hand held much at all and I knew what to expect. However, briefly, casting my mind back to the first procedure, which was 3 years ago now, I certainly did make a lot of contact with Stuart and Kaan at Get Hair and they provided me with comprehensive information via telephone and email. There is invariably someone that will respond in a timely manner and give honest and detailed responses to questions, so one never felt unattended as a client. Everything was slick and pretty much as hassle free as one could hope for. Get Hair was decided upon as the hair restoration provider best suited to give me the best solution based outcome. I did a lot of research. A lot. I settled on Get Hair and I was not disappointed.
