I had a hair transplant done on the 27/1218 at Aestepool clinic.
Prior to having the transplant, I consulted Dr Altan as a friend had used his surgery for his own hair transplant and had fantastic results.
I consulted Dr Altan in November 2018 and explained what I wanted doing and sent photographs of my hair to support my query.
Dr Altans assistant was on hand to answer any queries, questions I had and liaised with me via mobile and email at any time on the run-up to surgery.
To secure my surgical procedure I just had to book flights and provide proof of doing so to Dr Altans assistant to schedule me in.
Within my price included a driver for the duration of the trip, hotel accommodation which included breakfast and was a lovely 5-star hotel. The driver collected me at the airport with no problems and was friendly, taking me to and from the clinic pre and post procedure and for aftercare the following day.
The surgery itself was great. I couldn’t recommend it highly enough. From Dr Altman’s assistant to the nurses and doctors carrying out my procedure, they made you feel at ease.
Dr Altan began by talking through what I should expect from the surgery, how long it would take and the overall outcome.
I started by having my blood taken to determine the blood count for my grafts, followed by two nurses shaving my hair which for any Male I am sure is probably the part where you feel there’s no going back.
Following having my head shaved I was then taken into surgery which began roughly 8 am and lasted until approx 5-pm with a break around lunchtime. Local anaesthetic was administered and there was not one bit of pain, other than around the 6th hour and all I had to do was alert the nurse who administered more anaesthetic and the slight pain went away.
They began by taking the follicles from the back of my head, followed by a break, then making the insertions for the new follicles on the receded area, and ending with planting the new follicles.
All in all, I can not recommend this surgery enough. I know there may be a stigma around going abroad for surgery (hair transplant in particular), however, have faith and trust in this clinic to carry out your procedure to the highest standard. I am incredibly pleased, and 4-months on and beginning to see results of the new hair growing through.
Thank you, Dr Altan and his team for the most pleasurable experience and satisfying outcome.
