25 years old, FUE, 4600 grafts, Maral clinic - Istanbul

I am 25 year old, facing hair loss from my 18... I never thought about having hair transplant in my life until one day when my cousin mentioned it to me and after that, I started the research on the Internet. I live in Greece and after lot of research I decided to go to Maral Clinic as it is very close to me (about 1 hour by plane) and the good reviews that I saw by people. I booked for 05/13 and stayed 2 nights, I could stay more but I don't have much free time, because of my job.

Day 1
I landed to the airport 11am and the driver picked me up to the hotel. He told me to stay there because he didn't know the time of the surgery, he told me, maybe afternoon or next morning. So I stayed in a very clean and nice room waiting for the driver. I waited all day but never show up.

Day 2
Next morning I was a little bit nervous and couldn't sleep well, so woke up at 6am. At 9am Mr. Saim (driver) picked me up to the clinic where I met Dr. Maral and we discussed about my hairline and he said that I have good donor area and small head, so he expected about 4000 grafts to be exacted with micro FUE technique and would cover my head and little of my crown. Also, he said that I have 6/7 grade hair loss. He was very friendly and answered all of my questions.
The surgery took about 6-7 hours, they did very good job and managed to transplant 4600 grafts. I was very happy because I didn't expect so much. And I can't thank enough the awesome Marals team. After the surgery the driver took me back to the hotel and early morning I was back to my home.

Today its 5 days after the surgery and my donor area looks much better, so does my transplanted area... I will upload more photos

Here you can see some photos at two and half months. I let my reciepent area grow and cut sides and back. I still have no sensation in some parts of my scalp. Everything is going well. I feel that time is running very slow, because 3-4 a day I look at the mirror and check my new hair, lol.

Im happy with the results so far and I know better results are coming for month 5.
