Thank you very much for your very informative info Bobbins,appreciate it.
I think the guys have said it all , try the hairloss medications as suggested take pictures now and compare in 6 month -12 month time and you can always go and get some consultations and they will advice on your donor bank so to speak , research and more research you need to find the right Surgeon and Clinic and always if possible try and meet with patients who have been their , take your time mate you got good people on here to support and give you advice based on their experience .
It's tricky. There's a balance between giving advice and telling someone what to do.All the "advice" I've seen on here so far is to do research... along with various warnings about not rushing into it etc. This "research" stage is honestly the most stressful part of needing a transplant! Which is the main reason I've put it off for so long.
Some people recommend Turkey because they are very experienced due to the volume of patients, then you see others say "Why would you go to Turkey?!?!"
I saw Dr Bicer recommended but I have been quoted $10,000 for the first transplant, knowing I will need a second - which is way more than I was bargaining for (seems more on par with UK pricing). I've since seen others say that her price has gone through the roof. And they wouldn't even give me an indication on where the hair line would be... I was expected to pay that blind, effectively.
Another recommendation was Cosmedica whose quote was much more reasonable, but then I see posts here saying it is a hair farm. I don't even know what that means but it doesn't sound good? A search on here yields no results, before I get jumped and told to "research" by the regulars.
Hey Alex - I wholeheartedly recommend Hattingen Clinic, for many different reasons as covered in my Feb 9 2023 post on this chat above.Hey, which is the best clinic? Please share your views here as I'm also facing same problem and looking for a clinic.
Hi Mark,Hi I'm looking for a decent hair transplant clinic,more leaning towards one's that only do 1 or 2 operations aday,as I don't wanna be just a number in a group, so I've decided to spend abit more money, my limits are around from £1500 to £4500 or so. Area anywhere in Europe. I nearly went with a company called 'Top Clinic' bit they seemed very cheap and I stopped short at booking flights, was this the right call? That's why I'm willing to spend more and get better hopefully. Next problem I'm thinking is my hair too far gonna would you say, as I don't wanna half job as I may as well keep it shaved(has been shaved short for about a year) but I'd really like my hair back if possible.... I will attach pics later today, any help/info most welcome.
