5.0 from 3 verified reviews The operation was really painlessJuan, US, 17 09 19
I am writing this comprehensive review after 3 weeks my hair transplant operation. I arrived in Istanbul from Baltimore after 14 hours of flight. Before flight medical consultant send me driver WhatsApp number. When I arrived at Istanbul airport, I called driver Whatsapp number and I figured out also the driver was waiting for me at the airport. Airport and hotel distance was nearly 30 minutes with the drive. The hotel was really good, Elite World Istanbul Hotel, 5-Star and real luxury class hotel. Hotel is placed in Taksim and Taksim is the most touristic and historical area in Istanbul. Before my trip, I read somethings about Taksim district. This night I walked around in Taksim and I impressed a lot. Before that, I was thinking more different about Turkey and Turkish peoples. Next day morning at 07:30 I was ready in the hotel lobby for going to the hospital. Unfortunately, the driver came little late from the exact time (exact time was 07:30), nearly 20 minutes driver came late. The driver was a nice man, he apologized for late coming. Finally, the driver picked up me from the hotel and take directly to the hospital. It was about 25 minutes. We arrived at the hospital nearly 8:30 am and I met with Dr Mehmet Demircioglu. Dr Mehmet was a really positive and smiling doctor. When I talk to him about my operation details I felt very comfortable with him. Before starting operation nurses took my blood for doing some blood tests (HepB, HepC, HIV). I said that to the doctor I don't have these viruses tests not necessary but Dr.Mehmet said it is standard for all hair transplant patients and they made blood tests. After that, we talked about my operation type and details and I answered a lot of questions to Dr.Mehmet and he replied my all questions with big patience and confidence. Unfortunately in my life generally I am very curious and I ask so many questions for everything. Before my hair transplant trip, I have searched very deeply (nearly six months) and I found Dr Mehmet Demircioglu. But after talking him I understood again I found correct doctor. During in hair transplant clinics research process, I heard and read somethings about Dr Mehmet Demircioglu. I read many reviews and I figured out his main expertise is is Sapphire Fue Technique and Dr.Mehmet accepts only one patient in one day. These two important points were my key points. For confirmation, before starting operation I asked these two important points to Dr Mehmet and he confirmed. Truly in my operation day, only me was patient of Dr Mehmet. He did not operate any other patients and he focused only on my operation. My hair transplant operation took 14 hours and really I tired during this long time. They extracted and implanted totally 6500 hair grafts from the back of my head(5500) and beard area(1000). It was a huge operation. Dr Mehmet Demircioglu performed opening channels process (making incisions) directly himself by the sapphire blade. This stage is the most important stage of operation. Because of that directly Dr Mehmet performed this stage. After that Dr.Mehmet's team extracted and implanted all grafts(Totally 6500 grafts). During all operation time, Dr.Mehmet was in the operation room and he checked all details. Operation finished nearly 11 pm and Dr Mehmet Demircioglu was still in the operation room. He did not leave the operation room until operation finish completely. The operation was really painless as Dr Mehmet explained to me before the operation. They use needle-less local anaesthesia device (Dermojet) and it provides painless operation opportunity. This device gives local anaesthesia liquid without needle with pressure to under head skin. After the operation, we sat in Dr Mehmet's office and he explained after operation medicines (Antibiotic, Painkiller.) usage and he warned me about some important points for after the operation time. After that driver dropped out me at the hotel 11:50 pm and I slept directly. Next day I spent all day at the hotel for rest because Dr Mehmet warned me about that. The last day (after the operation two days) morning I did check out from the hotel and I came to the hospital with the driver again. Dr Mehmet Demircioglu did my first wash and he checked my head. He explained how should I continue washing process remaining days. After the hair transplant operation patients should make totally ten wash.
Dr Mehmet makes the first wash and he shows you how you should do this. You should make remaining of 9 wash in your country. After the operation during the first ten-day once every day Dr. Mehmet wanted new head photos and he checked my head every day by WhatsApp. After the first ten-day, he wanted once every week photo. He followed my after operation process directly. (Not his medical consultants followed, directly Dr Mehmet followed my process). If I summarize everything I can say that Hotel, Transportation, Hospital, Operation Quality, High number of Graft in one session(6500 grafts) and of course interest and operation skills of Dr.Mehmet Demircioglu were perfect. I paid 3000 euro for a full package. I believe that it worth. I rated 10/10 they deserved this rate. I am recommending Dr Mehmet Demircioglu - Diamond Hair Clinic to everyone. Thank you, Dr Mehmet, for everything.
