Medihair Review
This score evaluates the most important factors of a hair transplantation (e.g. hair line and donor) and is based on the opinion of the patient.
Clinic Name: Dr. Erkan Demirsoy
Clinic Location: Istanbul

Donor Management

It is important the surgeon doesn’t overharvest the area where the transplants are extracted leaving it overly thin and unnatural in appearance.
8 /10
The clinic chose an appropriate graft number considering the age and the hair loss degree of the patient. As the donor area of a patient is limited it is always advisable to use as few grafts as possible in order to have graft resources for further surgeries. The donor area appears to be natural with no sign of harvesting.

Hair Line Aesthetic & Design

Doctors should design an aesthetically pleasing, natural and age appropriate hairline for their patient.
8 /10
The design of the hair line is appropriate and natural for the patient’s age. Only single grafts are visible in the hair line. Single grafts make the hair line look natural. After photos are blurry, therefore a final assessment is difficult.

Treatment & Method Appropriateness

The doctor should be able to assess the patient’s hair loss for the most suitable method, e.g. FUE or FUT.
9 /10
In the present case it seemed to be that the FUE method is suitable. The FUT method has the advantage that many grafts can be extracted without visible impact on the donor area as long as reasonable scar management is performed.

Density

In order to achieve a visual sufficient density usually 30+ grafts per cm² need to be transplanted.
8 /10
The transition between the transplanted hair and native hair is smooth and not visible. In the present case the patient seems to have a natural and full density.

Doctor Involvement

The more involved a doctor is involved in the surgery process, the better the quality and consistency a patient can expect.
9 /10
The hair surgeon conducts the pre- and post-consultation as well as the extraction of the grafts. He also does the opening of the channels in the recipient area. Insertion of the hair follicles are done by technicians. This normally ensures consistent and reliable results.
8.3
Patient Review

I had an in-person consultation with the doctor at the clinic. The doctor answered all questions and informed me about all the associated risks correctly. The clinic responded quickly and was also reachable via phone, e-mail and Whatsapp.

Procedure & Hygiene

8 /10
My surgery proceeded without any complications and the standards for hygiene are very high.

After Care & Recovery

8 /10
The after Care service was great. I was able to have a digital consultation with the medical staff after a few month of my hair transplant. After 2 weeks of my hair transplant the donor area was fully healed.
