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. Emrah Cinik
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.
7 /10
The number of grafts is appropriate in relation to age and hair loss degree. The donor can not be assessed.

Hair Line Aesthetic & Design

Doctors should design an aesthetically pleasing, natural and age appropriate hairline for their patient.
6 /10
No sufficient photos are available for a final assessment of the hair line aesthetic and design.

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.
7 /10
The FUE Method is appropriate for the hair loss degree. To increase the possibilities of a successful, lasting result it is necessary to take hair loss medication like minoxidil and finasteride. However, the patient is apparently not treating its hair loss with medication.

Density

In order to achieve a visual sufficient density usually 30+ grafts per cm² need to be transplanted.
6 /10
In the present case the patient seems not to have a full density. The overall density was not improved by hair loss medication like Finasteride and Minoxidil.

Doctor Involvement

The more involved a doctor is involved in the surgery process, the better the quality and consistency a patient can expect.
6 /10
Doctor does pre- and post-consultation and partially opens the recipient channels. Extraction and incision are done by technicians. The results can be therefore more inconsistent.
7.0
Patient Review
This score reflects the individual experience of the patient during the procedure as well as pre- and post-surgery.
Clinic Name: Dr. Emrah Cinik

Consultation

7 /10
Because of the distance an in-person consultation was not possible for me. However, the clinic responded quickly to all questions. A call with a consultant was possible. I was informed of all risks and all questions were answered. The clinic communicated via Whatsapp and E-Mail.

Procedure & Hygiene

7 /10
The surgery proceeded without complications and the staff was always friendly to me and took great care.

After Care & Recovery

7 /10
One day after the surgery a post-consultation and evaluation of the result was performed by the clinic. My recipient area was slightly red for the first 3 weeks post-treatment.
