I had been thinking about a hair transplant for quite a while now but didn’t really fancy paying the high prices in the UK. I had often heard about turkey being ahead in the hair transplant field so decided to research this further. I came across gethair.co.uk and researched their surgeons and was pleased to see how much they have invested in this field. You often hear of horror stories with people going abroad so it was important for me that I went to the best. And I feel I have done this. From the beginning of my journey till end all my worries had been put at ease by the great communication and care taken by the team at gethair. It all started with Stuart, who is based at an office in London. For me this was also good as it also put my mind at ease tha should I have any concerns at any point there is a UK contact. He was able to answer all my questions and provide me with all the information regarding the procedure. I was pleased with the surgeons report and booked my appointment.
I decided to arrive in Istanbul a few days earlier to do some sight seeing (very strongly recommended). This also allowed me to relax before the procedure. Leila, who is the patient coordinator, contacted me a couple of days before to let me know about all the arrangements. She arranged for me to be picked up and dropped off at the hotel. The hotel is nice and had everything you would need from a short stay. I was met by Leila at the hotel on the morning of the surgey and she took me to the hospital where I met the team. Everyone was great and very professional. Dr Apaydin is very skilled and made me feel very comfortable and insafe hands. The procedure took a long time, I had 3942 grafts which took 12 hours with breaks. It was tiring but all I had in mind was the end result. Afterwards Leila gave me all the medication and shampoo and explained fully what I needed to do. She is very knowledgeable and really takes care of you. Her and Stuart still keep in touch to check everything is going ok. The aftercare is great. I am really pleased with what has been done and really looking forward to the result. I would strongly recommend gethair for anyone considering a hair transplant.
