September 2018| Smile Hair Clinic at Moodist Hospital, Turkey
I would highly recommend the SmileHairclinic for their outstanding service and performance. I would also recommend staying in Istanbul some extra nights, so youre close to the clinic in case and recovering in a relaxed way.
The first step of contacting Qunomedical was realy satisfying. I asked for a transplant just a few weeks before and they were able to book me in on July 4th. The information provided was great, also the FB page Hairlosscrusaders provides lots of tips and info. I spent a little holiday in Istanbul before the treatment, which was great to start all relaxed. I was picked up right on time and brought to the Hospital where Smile hairclinic is based. Dr.Erdogan was already waiting for me at the entrance and was most welcoming. I was brought to a room, very clean and comfortable, had a bloodsample taken and got some information to read. Dr. Erdogan went thrue all steps with me and after about a hour treatment could start. All staff were very friendly, calm and entertaining. After a shaven head i was brought to the operating room. The anasthetics given in the donor area were a bit painful, but it just takes a short time. Harvesting the donorhair was painless and i think i slept for quite some time. When they finished, i had a small lunchbreak. Then it was time for anasthetics in my forehead, which was done with some sort of pistol. The first one hurts, after that you know whats coming, so no problem at all. Transplanting the 3100 grafts took a few hours, but also now i slept thrue it. After they wrre finished, i got an IV with antibiotics/painkillers and they put a bandage around my dono area. Ready to go back to my hotel. They provided some protecting covers for my pillow. I was a bit afraid i couldnt sleep sitting a bit up and afraid to hurt my head, but like dr. Erdogan said, your body know by instinct to keep your head safe. Hardly any leaking thrue the bandage the next morning. Back to the clinic they removed my bandage and surprisingly it could stay off because it was healing very well. They told me to come back for the washing the next day, to give my head a bit more time. I booked 4 extra nights, besides the 2 included, just to have a relaxed recovery. The next day my head was washed and again i was told it was healing realy well. Hardly any crusts. On the third day i had a mild swelling of the forehead, but took care of it with ice and the headband they provided
me. Washing my head myself was quite easy and it looks better every day. I did not have any pain rhe days after, probably also of the medication provided. I would highly recommend the SmileHairclinic for their outstanding service and performance. I would also recommend staying in Istanbul some extra nights, so youre close to the clinic in case and recovering in a relaxed way. All in all a great experience and now waiting for the results to show. Confident it will be good! Great and clear communication. They were able to book me in just a few weeks before. Their help makes it so more easy!
