Do you think you would have been better off investing that money in hair systems?

You know you only start to see the results 6 months in right? and that full results won’t be apparent for at least a year?

I don’t get what exactly went wrong

I mean they paint the hairline you get before the procedure? Why you agreed with the hairline design of it was too aggressive for you?

i hope so, just retransplantation causes scarring and you always lose more hair in the process

they transplanted behind my native hairs in the front which already annoys me, as it can cause hair loss from impaction but what im more pissed about were the temples.
it was not aggressive they transplanted hair behind where my temples grow, they drew the hairline and i said i didnt want my temples done, but they assured me it's just to add some density (as i have slight retrograde alopeica on sides but never bothered me) , i agreed but instead they reinforced my entire temple point and even transplanted grafts into my fucking side burns for no fucking reason.
it's as if they had a goal to remove 2500 grafts and not give a single shit where it went

mind you, I did do my research on this clinic beforehand and it seemed like the best option, how fucking wrong was i.
I might just shave my head after a few months when the grafts heal so I can properly assess the result but good god I am so upset
this has honestly been the biggest regret of my life so far and I know it's something that's going to upset me until I die

Steps to correct this problem:
1) warn others about the dangers of Turkish hair mill clinics
2)SMP donor area to hide any noticeable thinning
3)visit dr bisanga or any other world-class surgeon to re transplant temple hairs and solve any other issues with the first transplant (using less than 1000 grafts)
4)more SMP to the donor after second transplant
5)Stay on finasteride and/or any other hair prevention medication once I reach the age of 25 as future transplantation would further harm my donor
6)shave head and SMP or just go full bald and accept being a baldcel at hopefully after age 40

if the transplanted hairs don't grow in then I'm going to do everything in my power to defame that clinic but ik it's too early to say what the end result is for the transplanted hair
im upset about 3 things, my temple points, my donor and the high graft usage

Thats not how its working

Fin will actually RAISE your test(depending on dosage) but it certanily wont lower it since its competing WITH test for is a 5α-reductase.

Also cialis wont help since it will mainly only inhibit PDE-5 but the lack of DHT is your problem it will fuck up your sex drive which will result in weaker/no boners..

Sides are rare but still possible and some people legit fuck up their whole life by taking it.

DHT is more androgenic so the increase in test still isn't sufficient to maintain sexual function which is why try should fix libido sides
only low test or high shgb, or high estrogen people get sides on fin

got a £4000 2500 graft transplant at hair of Istanbul where minimal coverage was achieved(literally could have used 1500 grafts), literally took hairs and planted them behind my hairline. the only benefit was fixing receded corners that was naturally M shaped from birth.
they just fucking took grafts and replanted them into my temples even after I told them not to, now I have a scarred fucking donor with fewer hairs to use in the future

furthermore, they rebuilt my temples behind where they naturally grow so now when the grafts grow in thicker (2-month post-op) I will have to keep shaving off my edges just to look normal, I always had a large forehead but I used to be able to fraud by lining up my edges and grown out my afro, (last pic for reference)
but now because of this expensive fuck fest I have a BROADER forehead which I can no longer hide. my forehead insecurity was the only reason i even considered this procedure, and I only wanted to lower my hairline slightly to be conservative with my donor region but NO instead they just take more grafts and plant them into places thick with hair.

EVEN AFTER YEARS OF PLANNING AND SAVING MONEY, I GET FUCKED

they rushed my fucking consultation and never even got to meet with any doctor to express what I wanted.

hair of Istanbul was meant to be a premium service but turns out just to be another Turkish hair mill that butchers hundreds of people every year if your going to get a HT ever please go a practice that will give you real consultation and don't do fucking over 20 transplants a day.

The only plan for me now is to somehow re transplant these grafts at another clinic, but I've definitely wasted many hundreds of grafts in the process (due to transection, scarring, impaction with native hairs and shock loss) I wasn't even getting any fucking MPB symptoms JFL I hate myself so fucking much for doing what I did.

I try to fix one of my most crippling insecurities and this is the result of it. FUCK MY LIFE

I'm seriously considering suicide at this point in time and have no one to talk to about this as I tried to make it as discreet and hair is a vanity issue

I HATE MY SELF SO FUCKING MUCH PLEASE SOMEONE KILL ME

i won't have sufficient grafts for any big transplant in the future so am forced to take fin and not lose any hair from now to the point i inevitably shave my hair and drop 4 PSL.

I can't even for 1 phase in my life ever be comfortable in my appearance i feel like God is watching me and somehow wants to ensure i suffer.

Well if you read these far congrats i guess, learn from me and dont go to turkey for a HT if i could go back in time I'd rather have gotten robbed on the way there then go through with this shit fucking transplant
Did I just read that you’re 2 months post OP? If so, you’re retarded, even for a black one.

you didnt read the post
i havent said the job was botched.
the surgeons had very poor graft usage and used too much hair for no reason ,rebuilt my temples in a way i wouldn't like and transplanted behind my native hairs in the front 1cm back when there was no thinning present

a 1500 graft transplant ended up using an extra 1000 grafts for zero new coverage
maybe if i go bald in only the places where grafts were planted and i have no shock loss in recipient area than maybe it would be ok but
that's assuming a lot

Nice but again cialis wont affect your libido it will make getting longer/harder erections easier. But you will be fucking the chemistry in your brain so wont even get horny.


Just telling you man its your choice

there was only 1 real self review that was negative which i didn't see before
the clinic has a very large social media following, very good google reviews and YouTubers like Mr Courtney having good results but know now that there are probably dozens of doctors working there so any review would never be accurate
google reviews are faked they don't use doctors usually technicians

well since i have hairs transplanted behind my natural hairline and i haven't had any MPB symptoms yet I'll just wait till I'm 25 and commit to using fin for the next 20 years.
the truth is that all androgens in the body can support healthy libido it's just a question of how many androgens you have
that's why bodybuilders using exogenous and synthetic androgens like trenbolone have a ridiculously high libido.
lmao
i agree with you that it is not ideal to be suppressing a hormone your body releases naturally but at this point the benefits of having hair
outweigh the possibility of a decreased libido, I'm just going to make sure i start at a later age and have proper bloodwork to assess my baseline and fix any imbalances with trt if i get sides

thank you, I'm really hoping my donor heals back and the patchiness is shock loss but I've calmed myself down a bit since it's happened
Had a severe mental breakdown for a bit, but now I have an actionable plan and my recession is not going to be there at least.
hopefully, the transplanted hairs grow in and I can retransplant the ones that outline my temples and use it to lower my hairline or something

this is very fucking avoidable if you did some research on youtube. Its pretty common knowledge to not go to turkey for hair transplants. But now that you have had a bad experience, you can actually go for a repair from an actual good hair transplant clinic.

But if you're broke, spend the next 5 years making a lot of money and focus on job related stuff if you can't go to Miami/BeverlyHills/NY for an expensive good hair transplant from a renowned doctor that can repair it. If 4000$ is all your money, you have bigger problems than hair. Focus on money, because you're only going to get fucked if that's all the money you can afford to spend.

Yeah I looked up Hair of Istanbul. Most of the instagram heavy clinics are hair mills.

Of course they use more donor hairs than they need I mean look at their before and afters. They go heavy. You should have gone HLC

thanks a lot i really appreciate the encouraging words right now

honestly your right, i was just really impatient and couldn't keep living with my insecurities, (being east African i naturally have a high hairline)
at this moment I'm a student and don't have a lot of money to spend but even now i feel like i should have just saved more money.
even after my bad experience i think i will still look a little better than how i came in and it probably wouldn't be the hardest problem to get fixed by someone like dr bisanga.
it's just that when you spend so long trying to plan for something that effects how you live your life every day and it doesn't come out the way you want naturally you'd feel devastated

im just going to start ranting about nonsense now:

For some time in my life, I've had a lot of close calls with failure, depression, suicidal thoughts etc and the fact i never went to complete shit like a lot of my friends made me think that maybe i have some guardian angel watching over me and would never make a mistake great enough that i couldn't completely come back from, even though hair and self-image seem trivial for a lot of people it always had the biggest impact in my life for me and i for some reason tied my self worth to it so much.
looking retrospectively it was never a healthy way to live my life I've just been neurotically obsessing over my imperfections with only my insecurity driving myself forward to make any accomplishments in school, fitness etc.
i have an actual fear that i might just kill myself one day because i can't handle the stress from living the way i have been.
i don't even care about validation or girls or literally anything i just want to feel like I'm better than people, in my own eyes and from what i value.
Im gonna go back and try to see if i can get a therapist again because this has honestly made really reflective on my situation.
maybe some of you can relate with me idk.
