Donor area ruined? (photos)

Hair Restoration in a "Turkish Budget Clinic" - overharvested donor area?
This is just one of the many problems that can occur when a technician performs surgery. They are not trained to perform surgery; surgeons are. Technicians are not aware of the hundreds of subtleties and nuances of a complex procedure like a surgical hair restoration, and this can be one of the unfortunate results.
Lastly, as we say in hair restoration: the good thing about hair restoration is that it's permanent. The bad thing is that it's permanent. I would personally be very wary of going to a "budget clinic" for a permanent cosmetic surgery that is going to forever change your appearance. If the results are not perfect, well, it is often not correctable, and you'll have to deal with the new issues (eg: bad scarring, over-harvesting of the donor area, unnatural hairline) for the rest of your life. If you are considering a hair restoration procedure, make sure there is an actual qualified surgeon performing the surgery. Technicians are not who you want doing permanent cosmetic surgery on your head.
Going to budget stores is appropriate for inexpensive furniture. It is not something you want to risk your appearance and attractiveness on.

However in general, it is very risky to have a hair transplant at Turkish technician clinics.
It is very unlikely that the technicians will be careful and skilled enough to both use the donor area economically and do a professional hairline design that gives a natural result.
My advice for hair transplant candidates is to make sure they wait until they have enough funds to go to a professional clinic, or even give the small amount of money they have to charity, so that they make sure they lose money, but preserve their natural look and valuable donor hair!

The real concern is that technicians should NOT be doing surgery. A medical doctor should be doing the surgery.
