Dr. Maral in Istanbul ruined my hairline

First of all when I arrived at the office, Dr....

First of all when I arrived at the office, Dr. Maral met with me briefly then told me he's actually leaving and will not personally be performing the procedure. That's not how it was presented to me before my arrival.

The his staff took over. The novocain shots seemed unreasonably painful. I've had work done before and it wasn't that painful at all!

The while they were working on me, the driver who met and drove me from the airport would come into the operating room and chat with the staff. Other random staff members also made their social rotations into the room where my head was bleeding and exposed to all sorts of germs. That was very unusual and not hygienic nor professional. It was a small room, and I was undergoing an operation. What on earth made them think it was reasonable to crowd the room and socialize?

But if that was all, I'd probably not even return to this site to leave a review. I'd just go about my way. Unfortunately, the work they did was just horrible.

I came in because I had scars on my head from an auto accident. They assured me that can be resolved. Well, now after almost a year the scars are not only visible, but the hairs they did add seem to emphasize the scars more in that the hair around them sticks up and out more noticeably than before.

While there I also had them add more density to my hairline. The result... think John Travolta. Honestly it looks so fake I'm embarrassed to leave the house.

My advice -- stay away!

The doctor left (although that was not what I expected). The staff were not professional in my opinion, nor did they do a good job.
