My Hair Transplant by Dr Cinik, Turkey

My hair loss probably started around 2007. It started to become thin and I started seeing the front of my hair line receding. It wasn't so bad at the beginning I would cover the front of my forehead by brushing the hair forward but I could only do that for so long. Before I knew it I started keeping a bald head. It was the only way I wasn't fooling myself by covering the baldness. I did this for 5 years. It was only until recently my brother in law was visiting Turkey and came across Dr Cinik and the FUE hair treatment. It was something he recommended to me after he underwent the treatment himself. After seeing the results I couldn't believe that his hair had grown perfectly and was a more confident with him appearance. He gave me Dr Cinik's contact details and I immediately got in touch with him for a consultation. Dr Cinik replied back within hours of my email. After speaking to him a few times it felt like I had known him for a long time. He reassured me about the treatment and by answering all of my questions which helped me prepare for my final decision, to go for the hair transplant treatment.

Once I arrived in Istanbul, a car transfer came to pick me up and take to me my hotel, which was part of the whole package. The hotel was really nice and was around 10 minutes from the airport so I got there sooner than I'd expected. Once at the hotel I was told by the reception that Dr Cinik would contact me and tell me the time the car transfer will come to pick me up in the morning for my life changing treatment. I was so excited about all this.

The next morning just like Dr Cinik had promised, the car transfer came on time and was waiting for me in the hotel lobby. It was a short 10 minute drive to Dr Cinik's clinic. Once there, I met Dr Cinik himself, and it was really nice to put a face to the person I had been in contact with. It was such a personalised experience. The team of 5 people who were assigned to me all knew my name and were highly professional and each one had their own area of expertise. Dr Cinik started by going through the steps of the treatment and how long the procedure would take. I was briefed about the whole day which they had planned for me. Once the hair transplant treatment had started, I had to lay still while he started the initial stage. He put the television on for me to pass the time. He did say it would take around 7 hours from beginning to the end. I was so relaxed with the different stages of my hair treatment that in between I would fall asleep. Considering the treatment involved taking my donor hairs out of the back of my head and grafting them in the bald areas I felt no pain at any stage. Surprisingly. After the treatment I was given a head bandage where they had taken the donor hairs from the back of my head. I was told by Dr Cinik I will be coming back tomorrow morning to have the bandage removed.

The next morning I was picked up from the hotel again and and told how to maintain my transplanted hair in the first 7 days. I was given a special shampoo and conditioner and shown how to wash my head. It was explained to me in detail leaving no room for any questions. I was recommended to take a 6 month supply of hair growth shampoo and vitamin course to assist with the growth of my newly transplanted hair. After the final consultation Dr Cinik gave me his private number to call him anytime if I experienced any problems or if I had any questions. I have been in direct contact with Dr Cinik since the treatment and it's so reassuring to know that I have 24 hours a day access to him whenever I need him.

It's been just over a month now since I had my hair treatment. My implanted hair has fallen out and that was expected to happen. Dr Cinik reassured me from the beginning that this is what's going to happen. He did say it would take around 3 months for the implanted hair to grow strong and thick.

Dr Cinik has been there for me from the beginning and I have no doubt he will be there for me whenever I need him in the future. He regularly checks up on me asking for my head pictures so he can have them in my progress report. A few of my family members and friends want to see the results for my hair transplant before I recommend Dr Cinik to them. No doubt they will all be looked after really well as I have experienced all this myself first hand.

I did not know what to expect from this treatment but I am happy to say that I will be recommending this treatment to all my family and friends as they will be able to see the results first hand. 10 out 10 for excellence of service and treatment.

Week 7

The transplanted hair has almost fallen out. This was expected and is part of the whole treatment. It's a waiting game now slowly but surely the transplanted hair will start growing and it will be thicker and stronger than before as I am taking their recommended hair growth treatment vitamin course alongside the transplant.

I was going to let me hair grow without any trips to the barbar shop. But since the hair growth is going to take time (around 3 months) for the initial growth I will be going for a little trim. Hopefully I will be uploading the new pic after hair cut.

Week 7 update

Not been for a hair cut yet. Just letting it all grow at the moment.

Week 8

Not been to the Barbers. Hair is still at the early stages. Still waiting for roots to begin growing.
