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.
10 /10
The donor area appears to be natural with no sign of harvesting. 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. A lower graft number will leave the patient with enough grafts for a 2nd surgery.

Hair Line Aesthetic & Design

Doctors should design an aesthetically pleasing, natural and age appropriate hairline for their patient.
10 /10
Only single grafts are visible in the hair line. Single grafts make the hair line look natural. A conservative hair line was chosen. The hair line will still appear age appropriate in the future and grafts will be saved for future surgeries.

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.
10 /10
The FUE method is optimal for smaller graft numbers and has the advantage that no large scar is created as with the FUT method. The doctor planned 2 sessions, first session to the front and top area. Second session crown area. The patient came after 12 months to have a transplant to the crown area. A final evaluation of the crown area based on the available photos was not possible.

Density

In order to achieve a visual sufficient density usually 30+ grafts per cm² need to be transplanted.
10 /10
In the present case the patient seems to have a natural and full density. In order to achieve a natural density 30+ grafts per cm² need to be transplanted. In the hair line even more grafts need to be implanted. In the present case the grafts per cm² are sufficient.

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 doctor does pre- and post-consultation as well as the extraction. He also performs the opening of the channels. Insertion of the grafts are done by technicians. This normally ensures consistent and reliable results.
8.3
