  • Start date


Hello everybody,My name is Matt and I am from Slovakia. I have been living in Vienna (Austria) for about 5 years now. This year (February) I decided to undergo a hair transplant (FUE). I informed myself about the prices and quality around where I live (Austria, Germany ,Hungary, UK etc.) After finding out that the prices were not so cheap over there and I was a student back then, I decided to contact couple clinics in Istanbul. I researched a lot on the internet until I found very interesting clinic with a lot of reviews on facebook and google. The clinic was called elithairtransplant. I contacted them easily via phone (whats app) and email. They responded very quickly and were able to answer all of my questions.
1. How much did my HT cost?- 1650 Euro
2. How many grafts were transplanted?-3750 grafts (I paid for 3500 and got 250 free :)
3. How long did I wait for the hair transplant surgery date?- About 5-6 weeks
4. Was the procedure painful?- Only the first 3-4 minutes, while the numbing shots were injected into my donor area. After that I haven ´t felt a thing.
5. Did my head hurt immediately after the procedure?- Yes, but only a little bit. I was given some painkillers to help me fall asleep. After 2nd and 3rd day I didn ´t need any painkillers.
6. Did Dr. Abdulaziz Balwi do the whole hair transplant procedure by himself?- No, but he was supervising it.
7. What did I get after the hair transplant from my clinic?- Shampoo, lotion, hat, medicals (painkillers, antibiotics etc.) and 5-6 sites of instructions on paper
8. How long did the procedure take?- About 7 hours, while I was watching TV and surfed the internet. I got one break to eat a meal, which was prepared at the clinic.
In the video below, I show you my hairline before and immediately after the procedure.
Thanks for reading and watching! ;)
