Rating from 298 Reviews A new head of hair and a bag load of new found confidenceBob, UK, 03 May 16
Totally excellent and very pleased with results so far, I am 36, from the UK, balding at the front and rear, had 3500 grafts and am 14 day post-surgery, I have no connection with Cosmedica who I never heard tell of two months ago, nor have I been asked to give a positive review.
I was resigned to the fact that I was going bald and that I would need to be on the wages of Wayne Rooney to afford a hair transplant until I came across a youtube video of a UK man who had an excellent one done.
So I started researching and found that a HT was a lot more affordable in the UK than I thought, even better I learnt a lot of men are travelling abroad to have it done for a fraction of the price.
Istanbul is the hair transplant capital of EU/ASIA, I have researched a lot of clinics, results and more importantly independent discussion about the clinics on numerous hair loss forums, out of all of this one name was discussed a lot and had only positive reviews, Cosmedica.
From other people’s experience I knew exactly what was ahead, I have nothing to lose (but more hair) so I contacted the clinic and booked the procedure for the following week, flights from the UK is less than 200GBP return with Turkish airlines.
Arrived in Istanbul and was collected and took to hotel (hotel was very good), collected the next morning along with 5 other patients, met about 15 Cosmedica staff and both doctors all very nice, chirpy, polite, and very attentive, I can only speak English but had no communication issues.
I hate needle’s, I have injection in arm to give blood then needles in head, sore yes but not too bad and kept telling myself it will be worth it.
Surgery took about 8 hours for me, went quick enough, after the injections you know they are working at your scalp and hear a drill but cannot feel anything, I was left back to the hotel, next morning I had breakfast, back to Cosmedica for check up and bandage removal, left back at airport and had flight home.
The hotel and clinic is within 3 miles of the airport, the clinic is in a hospital, the hotel and all transport was included in the one package price, the price is the same for everyone, 1500 grafts or 4500 grafts.
The grafts look to me, to be very dense and tight together, my hair has now grown on the back and sides and all scaring has healed and is totally unnoticeable .
For the cost of a monthly wage, It is totally amazing that within only two days I have been to Turkey and back with a head of hair and a bag load of new found confidence. Excellent, see my treatment review comments, clinic is in a hospital, very clean and I honestly say without contradiction that the standards I have seen are similar and exceed that of the UK hospitals I have been in, I can only speak about this clinic, my visions of an abroad eastern European hospital was from the 1950, this is 2016.
