2400 Graft FUE HT Experience with Adem&Havva Hair Clinic (Istanbul) - Turkey, TR

I am 36 years old guy living in Netherlands ....

I am 36 years old guy living in Netherlands . About 6 years ago I started considering a hair transplant, I had started losing my hair in my mid twenties but I was on meds (one and off). I was Norwood 5 pattern at the time of surgery.
I came to cross this websites, forums etc to see results, suggested doctors and all of the other good info.
I have consulted with few doctors in Belgium, UK along with few of doctors in Turkey too.
After extensive research and communication, I decided with go with HT specialist Safiye Kurt based from her results, solely dedication to FUE HT and the price. I must've communicated with her clinic least 50 times via email. They were very responsive.
After few consultations, she suggested I probably need between 2000 to 2500 grafts for my desired results and the area.
I went to Turkey few days prior to my HT. I drove to Safiye Kurt's clinic on the morning of HT. Arrived at her clinic at 09:00 am. Went through final consultation which was very short. Went to final comments and suggestion such as hairline and number of grafts required. After payment in full, everything started pretty fast.

Haircut was given by her staff . I was taken for harvesting. I lied face down in the operating chair with my head turned to one side and the anesthetic was applied. That part is not fun but certainly tolerable when you keep the end goal in mind, it was also difficult trying to find a comfortable position when lying on your stomach with your head turned to the side. In the end, she was able to get 2430 grafts from donor area which was a great result and she said we’d be able to do whatever we want with the hairline or dense other area as well. Harvesting procedure took about little over 3 hrs. Her tech's picked the grafts after she made the punches.

After lunch she drew in the hairline and temple points and away she went with her implementer (cutter) after more local anesthesia. For this part you are in a much more comfortable normal reclining position watching the movie. After the cuts, techs started to implant the grafts. Implanting the grafts took over 3 hours since only 1 tech was working on me.

Safiye Kurt's tech was very helpful and she worked on me with implanting until 6pm. I was tired by this time.

Hotel
Their staff made arrangement for my to stay at Fraser Place Hotel which was very good and located same tower as her consultation office. I highly recommend to stay there.

Next Day of HT
I came back the following morning for a donor area wash, was given more anti-inflammatory meds and a thorough post-operative discussion with tech's going over my care for the next month.
I never asked for count of grafts nor I was to count for it. I also never to count how many grafts were implanted into crown, temple and forehead area but I do remember verbally tech said they implanted about 1000 grafts into my crown area.
Here were the statistics from the surgery:
I am posting pics which are taken at different stages of my HT journey.
