Hey man thanks for sharing this. Fair play, serious results there. Im very close to going with Cosmedica. Only thing is - when im a good bit older if I ever wanted to shave my head (when the rest falls out), are the scars from this transplant gonna be obvious any ideas??

Hey man I am going to Cosmedica on the 1st November for the Job. I was advised by Mike the UK Consultant that I need about 3500 grafts. If u shave ur head a couple of years later there will be no scarring at all as they extract the follicles. If u went for the strip surgery u would have a scar alright.

How much does it cost for the 3,500 grafts, Rebekah Shy Quarter?

It's the same price for a max of 5000 grafts. They have 3 different packages now. One for €1990, then €2550 and other for €3550. The first 2 are done by technicians and the most expensive is done by surgeon Dr Acar. I am going for the 2550 package. If u look up getmorehair.UK. Mike smith is the UK Consultant. He is very good and had a hair transplant done in Cosmedica. I have done a lot of research and think Cosmedica is the best. Any other questions let me know ðŸ‘

Yeah worked out great thanks. Going through the shedding stage now but will be worth it in the end. Are u taking any tablets or Meds still? Or finasteride? Decided not to take Finasteride myself.

Hi, no I never took finasteride or any other medication after the procedure. I used and continue to use Bioxine hair shampoo from Boots. I think I took a vitamin B herbal tablet for the first 12 months

This has been a great thread to follow.

I have been in contact with Mike and Cosmedica and looking at a possible date in the New Year. My main deliberation at the moment is whether to go option 2 or 3. Rebekah Shy Quarter did you consider 3 or were you happy with 2 all along?

Thank you to Kepler for your openness and honesty it's very much appreciated from someone weighing up their options ðŸ‘

No hassle all the best. When I went I thought the procedure was being carried out by Dr Acar, he oversaw it but the technicians did it and as far as I’m concerned they did a good job.

Yeah was very happy with option 2, 70% less pain. Was 10 hours long and got 4900 grafts. Went for option 2 due to price. The results will be the same no matter what option u go for. Go for it man I cannot praise Cosmedica enough.were a Pleasure to deal with. For €2550 for 3 nights hotel stay, 2 prp sessions and 12 months supply of medication, and of course up on 5000 grafts. You will meet with Dr Acar and he will draw ur hair line which he recommends. Yeah thanks Kepler for all the advice, u gave me the push to go to Cosmedica. Mike smith is there everyday for you to answer any questions, he's a legend. Any other questions let me know
