After my hairline was receeding and I had blank spaces in my beard that more & more bothered me I started research about hair & beard transplants. As the price in Germany is way too high and the doctors do not carry it out that often compared to specialists in Turkey I decided to do it there.
From then on, the most important factor was the very good personal contact with Aestimed / Dr. Aytac Karadut. He answered all questions, build up a feeling of security / trust and made no false promises.

To this point I can absolutely recommend Aestimed / Dr. Aytac Karadut. He is a good, caring person, and a specialist, also his stuff / colleagues. I think that this is the most important thing that you are getting a good feeling besides coming to a foreign country, knowing nobody etc. The clinic standard is okay but whats more important is the quality of the operation process. Here, is the other "big point" for aestimed: Professional, exact working for the best possible result (high density).
I going to update month per month. After 3 days now the crust slowly falls off and the swelling is receeding. For swelling I did not take prednol (allergy reasons) so I found a natural remedy called BROMELAIN-POS, which is extraced out of ananas and is doing a great job.
The final result will be visible only in 5-8 month, so after that i will give a "final" evaluation.
