Never liked my hair, even as a child, started to lose it in my early 20s, had one of the early plug HTs, as a lot of the stars of the time were having it done, so I thought it must be ok, but I was wrong & I spent the rest of my life trying to hide this rubbish HT & waiting / hoping for a cure..... About a year back I noticed HTs had advanced to a level where they didn't look like transplants any more, especially the Micro Fue method, so I checked several British Clinics & i wasn't very impressed with their photo results & prices, one Clinic even told me I was too far gone and offered me their latest natural wig system which I totally rejected & I left feeling very depressed.....After more research I discovered Turkey was the place to go, and Istanbul quoted as "the hair transplant capitol of the world" so after weeks studying the form, the "Maral Klinic" always came out on top with the best reviews..... I emailed Dr Tugrul Maral & got a quick reply and everything was arranged from there..... Now I won't go into every detail here, as you can look at any of the Maral Klinic reviews, as some of the guys have written many chapters explaining everything from start to finish and I would like to thank these guys personally because I got most of my information from them & discovered their info to be very accurate..... One important thing I must say, about a week before my arranged HT, some brainwashed Idiot blew himself up killing & maiming some innocent people near the centre of Istanbul, friends & family were warning me not to go & I got a bit worried and Emailed Dr Maral asking how safe it would be for me there, he wasn't very happy & rightly so, he explained to me that I'd be in more danger in London, New York, Paris, Stockholm or any other Major City in the world, and he was right, we found Istanbul & it's people to be very helpful & friendly, we never once felt threatened or afraid, my wife travelled with me and enjoyed the experience ..... I had my HT on the16th Jan 2016 it all went great, the speed/skill & accuracy of the technicians was breathtaking & always checking that I was comfortable & pain free, pretty girls too..... I was estimated 2500 / 3500 grafts, when finished I had 4200 grafts, I almost cried with joy ..... If anyone wants to ask me any questions please do so, as I know how important having a HT is..... Personally I can't remember when I have ever felt so happy & it's still early days for me yet, but I am very confident that in a few months I will be walking in the wind without a cap feeling re-born..... ..... ..... PS. not sure yet how to download photos, I'm working on it.

Pictures taken by Dr. Maral at the Clinic.

..... Two weeks now since HT op..... I'll try to get more pictures taken after a month or so, everything still going to plan & I'm still so happy that I finally went for it.

..... Excellent.
