Dr yavuz has 14 years experience and sent copies of all his qualifications and memberships prior to booking. Price was 1850 including guaranteed 3500 grafts , all medication , 2 nights hotel and taxis. He also gave the pre anaesthesia and prp included. I found him very honest , ie realistic expectations regarding hairline and density. He said if I insisted on more than 3500 grafts go elsewhere. As I say when harvesting was completed I got 3700 due to strong donor area. Once procedure was completed he advised that I had achieved full coverage. He was not pushy for a repeat visit next year. Pros. From what I can establish a very good transplant was performed by dr yavuz. He was on hand at all times during transplant and he alone performed the openings for transplanted grafts. He has been in daily contact regarding recovery etc. Cons. I would advise going with a friend or partner. I went on my own and in hindsight having some support would be advised. Procedure was painless once anasthetic took hold but getting anasthetic even with the electric pre anasthesia was not pleasant. 1 week on and donor is definitely sore. Healing has begun and scabs are falling off. I would definitely recommend Dr Yavuz but people saying that this procedure is akin to a dental visit, it is uncomfortable and at times painful.
that's good to know I thought the price was very low with quonomedical so I was put off by it, can you give us monthly updates like the OP if possible ?
