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.
9 /10
The clinic chose an appropriate graft number considering the age and the hair loss degree of the patient. The donor area appears to be natural with no sign of harvesting. A final assessment based on the available photos of the extraction area was possible.

Hair Line Aesthetic & Design

Doctors should design an aesthetically pleasing, natural and age appropriate hairline for their patient.
9 /10
A conservative hair line was chosen. The hairline will still appear age appropriate in the future and grafts will be saved for future surgeries. A natural hair line has dominantly single grafts as in this case.

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
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. In the first session the front and top area was transplanted. In the second session the crown area was transplanted after 12 months. The after photos were taken before the second surgery. A final evaluation of the crown area based on the available photos was therefore not possible.

Density

In order to achieve a visual sufficient density usually 30+ grafts per cm² need to be transplanted.
8 /10
The transition area of native and transplanted hair is undetectable. 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

8 /10
The staff were always friendly and took great care of the patient and the surgery proceeded without complications.
