Short version: First Rate Treatment by top hair surgeon and his competent team at a fair price.
Long Version: I only had my hair surgery today and yesterday, so I cannot judge on the long term result (which of course does not only depend solely on the hair surgeon but also much on your own proper aftercare, healthy lifestyle, genetic dispositions and what not). But I am convinced Sahinoglu did an outstanding job, starting form the design of the hairline, the optimal scoping of the procedure, factoring in, esthetics, donor yield and long-term perspective. He calmly answers all your questions and wo n’t rush you into a procedure and he can take his time as you are the one and only patient who will be treated that day. Once the action plan is agreed, it is he who will perform the most critical steps of the procedure himself, from local anesthesia (the only part that unavoidably is a bit unpleasant, everything else is completely pain-free) to extracting the grafts and slitting the reception channels. Only the graft implantation is done by his assistants who are noticeably very skilled and experienced at it and of course monitored by the maestro.
In between there are breaks for refreshments and lunch which you are having together with Doctor Sahinoglu while enjoying the panoramic view from the 24th floor. Before, after, and every step of the way photos are taken form different angles. At the end you get fitted with post-op medication and thorough advise on all the “dos and dont’s” to ensure an optimal recovery and result.
Communication was smooth as Dr. Sahinoglu speaks excellent English. For German language customers referred (like me) by the “HealthTravels ” agency (who do an excellent job organizing everything around your clinic trip) there is also a German speaking interpreting service included.
Pricing I believe is upper league by Turkish standards but so is the quality of the service and when it comes to personal health you don’t want to save at the wrong end. From my perspective: a clear recommendation! If you are toying with the idea of hair restoration, this clinic should be on your short-list!
