I have had an FUE procedure about three years ago (with a different clinic) so I have something to benchmark my recent experience against. Although EsteNove clinic is not the cheapest, I can honestly say with hand on heart that I was treated like a VIP, everyone I came into contact with was kind and courteous toward me. The building is obviously fairly new and is the one shown on the company’s website. There are other medical companies situated in this facility so naturally, you expect it to be clean which it was, VERY clean!
I can’t speak Turkish and the surgeon couldn’t speak English but there was a translator on hand for all the important parts of the day and when he wasn’t in the room, he was always contactable on the phone which was most reassuring to me.
The first thing is the anesthetic, it really is painless when used with the ‘in comfort’ process, and I mean you know something is happening, but there is no pain. Again harvesting of the donor area was painless and it was actually..... a little bit relaxing!
I was then flipped over onto my back and the process of making ‘channels’ for the hairs started, I must point out that although this is painless, you do hear it within your head, so I put on my earphones and turned the music up so that I didn’t have to listen!
All in all, I was in the clinic for 5 and a half hours, the whole time I was treated with total respect and I found it most reassuring of the relaxed and calm atmosphere in the procedure room. Once again totally painless and worthwhile. I understand that some clinics do not even offer this treatment.
I was given a meal to eat after I was cleaned up and the bandages were applied, I was given pain killers to ease any pain, but I didn’t need to take any, and still haven’t (5 days later).
The following day I was picked up again at noon, and taken back to the clinic to have the bandages removed, naturally, there was a bit blood which is to be expected. The donor area was cleaned and my hair washed. I was given some medication, some special cleaning form, and shampoo plus a bag containing, instructions, neck pillow, hat, headband and a certificate. I was also shown some supporting products which I purchased a year supply as I believe they represent very good value and, to be honest, a hair transplant does need some care and attention afterwards.
I would happily recommend EsteNove to any of my friends or family because of their professional approach to all aspects of medical treatment and care.
