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 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 available photos are sufficient for a final assessment of the donor area.

Hair Line Aesthetic & Design

Doctors should design an aesthetically pleasing, natural and age appropriate hairline for their patient.
10 /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. Only single grafts are visible in the hair line. Single grafts make the hair line look natural. A final evaluation based on the available photos of the extraction area was possible.

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 FUE method is optimal for smaller graft numbers and has the advantage that no large scar is created as with the FUT method.


In order to achieve a visual sufficient density usually 30+ grafts per cm² need to be transplanted.
9 /10
The density of the hair was not enhanced by hair loss medication (e.g., Minoxidil) and the transition area of native and transplanted hair is undetectable.

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.

Patient Journey

0. General Information
Some brief info about my surgery: Grafts: 2243 grafts with the the FUE technique. Doctor: Dr. Erkan Demirsoy with support and organization by Health Travels (Clemens Weber)
1. Before Hair Transplant
When I was about 18, I noticed for the first time that I was getting receding hairline. At first it didn't bother me that much, but with time I had to find a solution. I tried hair loss medications like Propecia, as well as different hairstyles. Finally, after the techniques and results of hair transplants became better and better, I now took the plunge last year. It should be a hair transplant for my receding hairline. After a few years of research and collecting information, I was able to get my way and dared to take the step to Turkey. The price-performance ratio was much better than in Germany. However, it was very important to me that it is not the cheapest provider who operates tens of patients a day, but a clinic where the surgeon still performs the HT himself. I was the only patient. At the age of 38 I could finally bring myself to have a hair transplant in Turkey. The receding hairline basically developed quite early, from 18, and then of course very slowly became larger and larger. 20 years later, with large corners and some attempts to stop the process of loss with means such as Finasterid and Co, I found the timing now absolutely appropriate. Because of my family history, I also did not expect much more hair loss.
2. Surgery
My stay in Turkey was basically quite short. On the first day I went to the hotel and the next morning I had a meeting with Dr. Demirsoy and Mr. Weber from Health Travels and I found out how the exact daily schedule of the hair transplantation would be. We agreed on a very beautiful and above all-natural hairline. In total 2250 grafts were transplanted with the FUE technique. In the evening I was already exhausted, although the injections were quite bearable. Not as unpleasant as I had previously read in forums.
3. After the Hair Transplant
Day 1-5: In the first days I had a swelling in the face.
Day 10: After about 10 days everything was over and the scab came off well - it looked really good then. The receding hairline had disappeared.
After a few months: I had to be patient for several months until the first hairs grew properly. Now, 14 months after my hair transplantation at Health Travels (Dr. Demisoy), I have finished with the topic "receding hairline" and do not think about it anymore.
4. Preliminary Conclusion
Hopefully I will be spared a second hair transplant :-) But I think so, because my hair loss has stopped. I hope one or the other has liked my experience report and video.
