What Is The Significance of Reviews for Hair Transplant Clinics in Turkey?

Numbers don't lie. The statistics show that patients trust reviews just as individual advice. As medical tourism continues to grow and develop in Turkey and certain countries, it's more critical for abroad esthetic surgery clinics, such as Turkish Hair Transplant clinics, to keep these statistics in mind and provide the best possible patient experience.

In the long–term, there is no possibility in Turkey or another country that a hair transplant clinic can survive in the hair restoration industry without caring for patient reviews and happiness. In the short-term, for a few years, staying may be feasible with the support of online paid ads and without good reviews, but in the long term persisting in the industry without having good reviews is unfeasible.

After careful research of hair transplant clinics I booked my hair transplant with doctor Mehmet Demircioglu as I had only heard good things and the impression I got while emailing and talking on WhatsApp was very good. Now 11 months post I do not regret it! Diamond Hair clinic booked me in at an excellent 5 star hotel and I booked my flights. Before arriving Istanbul I had already been contacted by my driver who took me to the hotel. Everything was very professional and transportation was included the whole stay. On the day of my operation I was picked up and driven to the clinic. Before starting the operation I had a pre-operation consultation where Dr. Demircioglu evaluated my donor area and after that he decided to increase the operation total graft number 500 grafts without charging extra-cost for it. Originally we agreed 5500 grafts but I had 6000 grafts implanted. The consultation was very thorough and Dr. Demircioglu took time to explain the process and answer all my questions. I was the only patient and had the doctor and his team to myself the whole day as promised according to their one-patient a day policy. During the 1 hour consultation Doctor took time to design my new hairline to make it look natural and we discussed how I wanted it to look. Dr. Demircioglu directly made the incisions with a Sapphire blade and his team made extraction and implantation. During operation the doctor controlled everything. After the operation doctor explained the post operation process, medications, and important points. After 1 day I was taken to the clinic again for wash and check up and the doctor gave me his personal number. I have sent photos every week for this year (every day first 10 days) and Dr. Demircioglu has given feedback and instructions and answered all my questions very quickly and helpfully. I can highly recommend Dr. Demircioglu and Diamond Hair clinic. Not only for the excellent and smooth service as mentioned above, but most of all for the result of my new hair. I am now 11 month after operation and the result is way better then I dared dream of and there’s still new hairs coming!

Originally I settled for a different hair clinic of whom I paid £500 deposit for, after more careful valuation I decided not to use this company as I found a lot of bad reviews and certainly put me off. I opted for Diamond hair clinic as they seemed more professional with information and their 1 patient rule! I Left Edinburgh on the 6th of august to Istanbul, operation was on the 7th. From the airport taxi to the hotel and hotel to hospital was very good no problems at all. And same taxi to airport was on time and efficient. the hotel was really nice, clean and the food was nice too. Day of the op, left the hotel at 7:30am got to the hospital around 8. Waited in reception around 20 mins and the nurse came and got me and I met Dr Mehmet Demircioglu in his office and was very friendly who explained everting clearly and made me feel at ease. The nurse took blood and left a cannula in place was pain relief later. The reason for them to take blood is to check for diseases like hepatitis, hiv etc Dr Mehmet then came to the theatre to draw on my new hairline, took around 45 mins to make sure it was what I wanted. Next stage was numbing of the back of my head (donor area) and extract hair. This was quite a painful part of the procedure the numbing was uncomfortable at times but didn’t last too long before feeling nothing. This took around 3 hours. Had a pizza for lunch then back to the theatre, this stage was numbing of the recipient area (receded area) then Dr Mehmet done the FUE cut along my scalp and the insertions for the grafts to be implanted. This was done within 3.5 hours. Left the hospital after Dr Mehmet explained the rules to follow around 6:30pm back to the hotel with pain relief and a large kit of shampoos etc which was all included in the price. I paid 4500€, a bit more expensive but this is a life changing decision and best to pay more for a professional than the many amateurs around Turkey. I would have no problems recommending friends and family about Dr Mehmet at Diamond Hair Clinic, but do plenty research before you decide but I can’t thank the Dr enough this far, I see progress happening can’t wait to see it in a few months.

I have just completed my Sapphire FUE Hair Transplant with Dr Mehmet Demircioglu and his team at Diamond Hair Clinic. This review will be based on my experience from booking, all the way to 10 days post-operation. I will write another review purely focused on the results of the operation in around 12-18 months from now. This review is very extensive, so if you are short on time, you can simply read the TLDR section and hopefully you will get the sentiment I am trying to convey. Otherwise, I’d recommend reading the full review because I have spent a lot of time & effort to give the most accurate and detailed review possible, which can hopefully be useful to those considering a hair transplant in Istanbul. TLDR // Summary Deciding on Diamond Hair Clinic and Dr Mehmet Demircioglu was the best decision I could have possibly made. Everything was professional and patient-focused, from the first messages exchanged on WhatsApp to 10 days post operation (where I currently am with my recovery). For those considering a hair transplant in Istanbul, I would HIGHLY recommend you to consider Dr Mehmet Demircioglu, his team and his clinic. Yes, the pricing is a bit more than your average in Istanbul, but for a very good reason and ultimately, you get what you pay for. You are paying for: 1. An experienced surgeon to conduct the incisions, which is a highly technically demanding part of the surgery, and for the surgeon to supervise the whole operation. Experienced is probably not sufficient to capture his skill set - world-renowned is more accurate. In fact, Dr Mehmet Demircioglu is a recognised member of the World FUE Institute. You can see the requirements for membership here https://www.worldfueinstitute.com/see-our-fellow-members/. You can read for yourself how difficult it is to be invited as a member. 2. The purest form of patient focus as Dr Mehmet Demircioglu only takes 1 patient a day, and 10 in a month (if I remember correctly). This allows him to invest all his expertise and energy into a single patient at a time to ensure the best experience, and to deal with any and all queries that a patient may have. This in my opinion SHOULD be an industry standard because a hair transplant is as personal as it gets, but unfortunately, it is far from standard. 3. Dr Mehmet Demircioglu is more than a surgeon; he is an artist & perfectionist. He allocates a full 1 hour consultation to draw your hairline and go over the details, many of which are things a regular individual wouldn’t even know existed. For example, Dr Mehmet Demircioglu showed me some asymmetric characteristics on his own personal hairline, which are not noticeable to the naked and unaware eye. He did this to highlight that naturally looking hairlines seldom are perfect, thus introducing minor imperfections is key to attaining a naturally looking hairline. 4. Exceptional care, organisation and pre and post-operation communications. Being a naturally inquisitive and detail-oriented individual, I had so many questions for Dr Mehmet Demircioglu. He has answered each and every single question to my satisfaction, with more detail than required to ensure I have all I need. He has also provided additional resources for things I have asked about. This is only possible thanks to his fluency in English. 5. A stay in a lovely and well-positioned hotel called Ramada, alongside all transport in big Vito cars. Believe me, the Vito cars are not a minor detail. They have been chosen because they are big and avoid head-bumps post operation. Hopefully, that gives you some insight into the level of thinking and planning that goes into ensuring patients have the best experience possible. 6. The price you pay is not subject to the number of grafts to be extracted and implanted. You essentially pay to have Dr Mehmet Demircioglu around for the day, which is a much better alternative because decisions will no longer be based on financial factors only, but rather whatever is best for the patient in the short and long term. The key thing I am trying to convey here is that Dr Mehmet Demircioglu has set a really high standard for hair transplant surgery. I can only recommend him and inform prospective patients about the excellence of his work and service, but ultimately it is down to the prospective patient to choose the surgeon and clinic. I would highly recommend that prospective patients at least compare other clinics and surgeons to Dr Mehmet Demircioglu because if he is not your go-to-surgeon, then he will serve as a great reference point. Full Review Motivation of FUE Hair Transplant The key motivation for me to get a hair transplant was that to me, hair reflects youth, and as a man of 27 years of age, balding early did not sit comfortably with me. My balding had been progressing gradually over the years, but I most likely accelerated my genetic predisposition by mistreating my hair. In my (even) younger days, I would straighten my hair as I disliked the excessively wavy nature of my hair. I’m of the opinion that doing that over the years has damaged my hair beyond repair, resulting in thinning and complete loss of hair in some areas. To put this into concrete timelines, I started straightening my hair around 15 years of age, and stopped around 20 years of age.I am now 27 years of age, and prior to my operation, I would still use a blow dryer daily to straighten my now shorter hair as much as I could. I was estimated a number 4 on the Norwood scale, although my crown is not as thin just yet, but still thinner than desired. Research I started doing research into possible solutions. Finasteride & Minoxidil were mentioned everywhere, but I got the gist that these will not suffice for me. I was looking for corrective mechanisms, not a mechanism which prevents the worsening of my hair loss. There have been studies demonstrating that Finasteride was effective for some in regrowing hair, but I took those studies with a pinch of salt as I wanted more conclusive evidence and more of a guarantee. Once I had decided that the only mode of action that can repair my hair is a hair transplant, I went ahead and started researching clinics. This is arguably the most difficult part of the journey. I spent months researching clinics, processes, reading advice and so forth. The internet is crammed with a lot of conflicting information so verifying every piece of information gained was quite tedious and difficult at times. The general rule of thumb I used for verification is that if 4 or more reputable sources corroborated the information, then it is likely to be valid. The first thing that became immediately obvious to me is that there are different types of clinics around. I’m not an expert in categorisation of these clinics, but I can broadly and informally categorise them into two types: patient-focused and well-oiled money-making machines. I concluded this dichotomy because when I was reaching out for quotes with some clinics, I was receiving unrealistically cheap quotes (around £1500-£2000 for 5000 grafts) almost instantly, which implied to me that the messaging was mostly template based, and that the quote is generic and not personal to me. Additionally, the sales agents were very pushy and persistent in trying to get me to book as soon as possible. Now, I don’t mean to bash the good work that some of these money-making clinics do. Undoubtedly, many have had success with them, especially in terms of results. However, I urge prospective patients to read reviews and watch plenty of videos on the process of these clinics because most are unpleasantly surprised to find out they are being operated on alongside 10-15 other patients. At this point, I had decided that I wanted a world-class surgeon to do my hair transplant with full focus on me as the patient, and not a technician without a medical diploma. Once I started searching for clinics where a surgeon operates on the patient directly, I came across Diamond Hair Clinic. After reading the reviews, I was confident that I should at least attempt to get a quote from Diamond Hair Clinic because they provided the service I was after. A brief note on reviews - the number & quality of reviews available is quite a useful indication into the type of clinic you are dealing with. I’m not naive enough to think that everyone writes reviews post surgery, but you can quickly filter out bad candidate clinics; some have thousands of reviews, and have only existed for 2 years. Those kinds of numbers are awfully suspicious and indicate a vast turnover of patients. Additionally, there are examples of foul play; censoring negative reviews, manipulating public perception and so forth. I can only advise to check everything multiple times over, and attempt to corroborate across sources. Initial Enquiry Getting into contact with Diamond Hair Clinic was really simple. The website has a Contacts page, which redirects you to the platform of choice, which in my case was Whatsapp. I believe Facebook messenger and email were viable alternatives. I went ahead and sent a message detailing my intent and objective. The admin had responded within 5 minutes of my initial message requesting photos, which Dr Mehmet Demircioglu requires for analysis and probing whether I’m a good candidate for the hair transplant. The angles of the photos were clearly described with examples, so all this was really simple to do. Once the photos were sent, I was asked to share my email and asked a few questions about my general health and lifestyle. After that, I was informed that Dr Mehmet Demircioglu will carefully analyse my pictures and come up with a personalised medical report which outlines the planned operation. This medical report also includes the cost details of the operation. This report takes around 3-4 days to produce, highlighting that Dr Mehmet Demircioglu personalises each plan according to the patient. Booking I received my medical report as a PDF via email exactly 3 days after initial contact. The PDF was quite extensive, with many annotations outlining the operation Dr Mehmet Demircioglu has planned to achieve my desired results. There was a lot of information regarding Hair Transplants in general in that PDF, so it takes a little while to get through to digest all the content. I was quoted 4500 euros for 4500 grafts for my operation, which made sense given what I was about to receive in return (see TLDR section). Shortly after the medical report landed in my inbox, the admin had messaged me on Whatsapp to inform me that the medical report is complete and should be in my inbox. Alongside, a plethora of messages were sent via Whatsapp of previous patients. These messages included pictures, videos, links to reviews and other informational pieces. Again, there was a lot of content to digest. It took me around 3 to 4 weeks of continuous further reading to ensure that Diamond Hair clinic really was my best option. Lo and behold, I was very confident in this choice after corroborating a lot of the information that was provided to me. The booking process with Diamond Hair clinic was very simple. All you need to do is book your flights to Turkey, and they will make the remainder of all the reservations. I enquired about potential dates in September and the admin informed me that those dates work. I then booked my flights for September 3rd 2022 to September 6th 2022. My operation was planned for the 4th September 2022, which to my surprise, was a Sunday. Of course, in the UK, Sunday is considered somewhat of a rest day, but things are different in Turkey. Anyway, all the reservations were confirmed by Diamond Hair Clinic the following day, and Dr Mehmet Demircioglu emailed me a PDF letter confirming my hair transplant booking. The booking was completed in April, so I had several months to wait around. I strategically decided on September because I wanted to recover over winter, and from reading around, I knew that summertime is not ideal as you need to shield your head from direct sunlight post operation, and that you should prevent sweating as much as possible. Practically, it was easier to just do it in September. Towards the end of August 2022, the admin shared more details regarding my trip. Namely, I was passed on the contact details of the company/persons who will be sorting my transport during my stay in Turkey. This was a nice little touch because everything was so timely, thus I never felt like I was missing anything prior to the operation and my flight. Flights and day before operation I booked my flights with Turkish Airlines, and was expected to depart from the South terminal in Gatwick around midday. As had been the trend in the preceding few months, I encountered a minor delay with my flight. I was delayed by approximately 1 hour, which was not an issue to me. Upon learning this, I messaged the driver to inform him that I will be delayed. He was very kind and told me not to worry as they’ve got workers who are constantly at the airport. The flight was relatively short, lasting around 3.5 hours, although the initial estimate was 4 hours. There was food served on the flight, and there was plenty of entertainment to keep me occupied, so that journey was actually quite enjoyable. Once I arrived, I immediately noticed how large Istanbul airport is. In fact, it took me approximately 20 minutes to walk through to the passport control and baggage reclaim. The process to get through security and to reclaim baggage was rather smooth. My first struggle was finding my way around the airport so that I could meet my driver. As mentioned, the Istanbul airport is enormous and has many exit gates. I decided to contact my driver and ask for additional directions on where I can meet him, and he promptly directed me to Gate 13, and told me who to speak to so that I can organise my taxi back to the hotel. Within 30 minutes or so, I was in a taxi which was taking me all the way to Ramada hotel. I went to check in and everything was smooth sailing. I was advised to rest well pre-operation, and that is exactly what I did. Room service was ordered and I was asleep by 11pm in Turkey time, because I was informed that my driver will pick me up at 8am the following morning. Operation Day I was so excited that I ended up waking up around 6:30am, which is crazy because back in the UK, it would have been 4:30am. I showered, got changed and headed straight downstairs to have some breakfast. I’d highly recommend eating breakfast before the hair transplant surgery as there is only a single lunch break during the procedure. Diamond Hair clinic book your stay with breakfast included, and it was a delicious breakfast at that. By the time it was 7:45am, the driver was outside and ready to take me to the clinic. The clinic was approximately 20 minutes driving from the Ramada hotel. Upon arrival at the clinic, I was welcomed by the receptionist. I was asked for some identification (please bring your passport with you) and was given a form to sign. The form was essentially a standard medical waiver, quite common across cosmetic surgery in general. There was nothing outrageous and nothing I did not agree with, so I signed and waited until one of Dr Mehmet Demircioglu’s staff escorted me to his office approximately 15 minutes after. I was taken to Dr Mehmet Demircioglu’s office for the initial consultation. The office was very modern, with some incredible artwork stationed behind the doctor himself. Everything looked state of the art to me, so I was feeling quite comfortable with the whole process. Before we even got to start talking about the operation, Dr Mehmet Demircioglu asked me about my well-being and whether I was nervous or not. Naturally, I was a tad nervous - here I am in a foreign country, and the only other English speaking person is the surgeon who was going to be operating on me. He reassured me, and so did his team, and I immediately felt at ease. We got to start talking about many things: 1. General introduction to who I am, and what I do for a living 2. How I ended up here in this clinic 3. Thorough breakdown of the procedure and its stages 4. Reviewing pictures of me from the previous years so that Dr Mehmet Demircioglu has an idea of how the balding has progressed over the years 5. What was previously discussed in my operation plan 6. My expectations for the surgery It is worth mentioning at this point that the conversation was very smooth and fluid. I was thoroughly impressed with the fluency of Dr Mehmet Demircioglu’s English. If you have been to Turkey before, you will know what I am referring to; the general public does not really speak English, so conversing as a tourist can be quite difficult. His team of nurses also do not speak fluent English, but they speak enough to get by. More on the two fantastic nurses/technicians later. Whilst the doctor and I were talking, one of his staff started taking pictures of the whole process. These pictures are taken throughout the whole day. Importantly, they are not mandatory. You have the option to not have pictures taken, but I welcomed it to add a bit of a celebrity feel to the day. The initial operation plan consisted of 4500 grafts. However, upon closer inspection in person, Dr Mehmet Demircioglu suggested 4000 grafts instead because my donor area is poor, and taking more grafts would leave me more bald than necessary on the sides and back, which entirely defeats the purpose of attaining a natural look. It also wasn’t clear whether my donor area had 4500 grafts to donate to begin with. In fact, Dr Mehmet Demircioglu rated my donor area a generous 3 out of 10, which was somewhat of a shock to me. This brings me to a very very important point, so let me digress slightly from the operation day to talk about expectations. As patients, we may have unrealistic expectations. For me, I was hoping to renew my hairline, add density to the mid section, as well as partially cover my crown with around 1000 grafts. What I didn’t understand is the confines under which the doctor can operate, and that is that my donor area is not capable of donating that many grafts. Of course, initially it’s a hard thing to have to accept - you’ve just traveled across the ocean in hope of finally getting your dream hair, you have found an amazing surgeon, but here you are being told that it is physically impossible. However, you will be forever grateful to your surgeon down the line, because they acted with ultimate honesty and integrity. Dr Mehmet Demircioglu could have delivered exactly what I was hoping to have, without considering my donor area post-operation or any other factor for that matter. Instead, he informed me about the challenges, was honest, and offered a solution to somewhat bypass my physical limitation. This is something that you cannot even buy; only a good and caring doctor, who prioritises the patient before all else will behave in this manner, and for that, I am eternally grateful to have picked Dr Mehmet Demircioglu. I suspect many clinics (those I referred to as money-making machines earlier) would have complied with my crown request, just to ensure that they get my money, but it would have been the wrong thing to do, potentially bordering on medical negligence. Back to the operation day … Once the initial consultation in his office was complete, we began the second part of the consultation, which was drawing the hairline. I was taken to the operating room, and was tasked with describing the kind of hairline I would like. I wanted to mostly fill the corners gaps which are missing, without lowering my hairline too much. Dr Mehmet Demircioglu proceeded to draw the hairline using some laser device and sharpies. This process was really interactive and iterative. Dr Mehmet Demircioglu continuously asked for my feedback with every alteration he made to the hairline. I really enjoyed this process because I learnt a lot about hairlines in general, and it was interesting to see his thinking patterns behind making hairlines look natural. It was truly like watching an artist at work. This process concluded after around 40 minutes or so. The next step was to shave my hair, and change into the appropriate hospital clothing. The entire procedure was explained to me multiple times in advance, and in much greater detail during the initial consultation in his office. The procedure consisted of 3 key stages: Extraction of hair grafts (completed by nurses/technicians) Incisions in target areas (completed by Dr Mehmet Demircioglu) Implanting extracted grafts in target areas (completed by nurses/technicians) My previous research made me think that the whole procedure will exceed 10 hours, but in reality, each stage was estimated to take around 2 hours. I’m not sure whether these times are due to individual differences, such as having a smaller than average head, or whether that is the general consensus. Nonetheless, it was a pleasant surprise knowing that I will finish earlier than anticipated. The stage breakdown above highlights that 2 of the 3 stages were completed by the nurses and technicians. This is a little bit misleading because Dr Mehmet Demircioglu is present in the room for the majority of the procedure, helping and guiding the team when necessary. Also, technically speaking, the only surgical aspect of the whole operation is stage 2, thus it is very important that a surgeon completes this stage, rather than a technician. The extraction stage was arguably the least comfortable of the 3. There were a couple of reasons for this. Firstly, the local anesthesia is extremely painful upon application for the first 1 or 2 minutes. The technicians first apply needleless local anesthesia injections, but the intention of this is to actually ease the pain for the needle injection, which contains the complete numbing agent required for the operation to be painless. The technicians did a wonderful job with me, constantly checking whether I was alright and getting it over the line quickly and effectively so that we can continue with the operation. Secondly, you are facing downward on the bed in an uncomfortable position for 2 hours. Your head is getting tossed and turned and pressed against a rather hard cushion surface. My jaw felt like it had gone through a brutal 12 round fight with Mike Tyson. It was a relief to finally be able to stand up after the extraction stage. After the extraction was complete, I was served some lunch. I was asked what I would like to eat during the consultation in the morning, and of course, I decided on a good old Turkish kebab. The kebab was delicious and I was given plenty of time to finish my food, despite the fact that I am a very slow eater. The technicians catered to my every need, from tissues to water, so a big kudos to them for making the lunch so easy and enjoyable. After lunch, we resumed with stage 2. This was mostly seamless. The only uncomfortable/painful part was the local anesthesia injection, but this time into the top of your head. For some odd reason, this was more bearable than the injection into my donor area. However, it was still very uncomfortable for the first 1 or 2 minutes, and then it was painless until the end of the operation. Once the anesthesia kicked in, I just had to lay on the operation bed with my eyes covered (because the light is so bright), and essentially wait until Dr Mehmet Demircioglu had completed all the incisions. We had a brief conversation, and as you can tell from the elaborate length of this review, I am a very talkative individual. I almost felt bad for Dr Mehmet Demircioglu after a few minutes, and decided to stop talking and allow him to focus on the surgery. The final stage was also very seamless and easy. I continued laying in the same position, while the technicians were implanting the extracted grafts. I do remember getting a bit cold at this point, because the operation room has to be cold to maintain the good health of the extracted grafts. The technicians were kind enough to fetch a duvet for me. At this point, I was almost falling asleep so this step was over rather quickly. All in all, the operation was a lot easier than I initially anticipated. I was expecting to walk out that operation room looking like I had just fought a battle in the trenches, but it was far from that. I was bandaged up quite neatly and felt no pain or discomfort after whatsoever. Post-Operation After the operation, we went back into Dr Mehmet Demircioglu’s office and discussed postoperative care. The success of a hair transplant is subject to so many factors, thus distilling this vast knowledge into a simple set of instructions is absolutely crucial in ensuring a patient can follow the instructions and optimise the chance of success. Dr Mehmet Demircioglu did exactly that - broke down all the steps into simple to follow instructions. He was kind enough to write it all down for me, especially the instructions regarding the postoperative medications. He also provided me with his personal number, and welcomed me to message him with any questions or concerns I have. After the operation in Diamond Hair clinic, you will be given a Greft Plus care package which should last approximately 6 months, alongside a bunch of medications to take for the following 10 days. The Greft Plus care package is rather large, so ensure that you have checked-in luggage large enough to carry it. The medications are crucial in ensuring that you do not contract any infections, while also alleviating some of the postoperative side-effects such as swelling. Keeping your head upright at all times really helps with the swelling. I had minimal swelling due to following all the instructions, and taking the prescribed steroids. A quick note on the steroids - they taste disgustingly bitter. My suggestion is to wash them down with juice, rather than water. I could still taste the steroid even after swallowing it, so juice was absolutely necessary for me to hold down that little steroid pill. With all my stuff in hand (not literally, as the technicians carried all the stuff for me), I was transported back to the Ramada hotel. This was not the end of the journey though, as I was expected to come back in a day for the first wash. The first night was really challenging. I felt handicapped and so limited in every movement I used to be able to make freely. Sleeping upright using a neck pillow, with some bandages covering the entirety of your head is as uncomfortable as one can be. Couple that with constant leaking of plasma and you have yourself a nightmare pending. However, the hotel staff were exceptional and helped me with anything I really needed help with. From adequately covering my pillows with towels to ensure I do not ruin their bedding with my leaks, to delivering food to my room. They were all so happy to help. That night, I managed to get 5 to 6 hours of sleep in total, which is quite good compared to what I had read/seen from other people. I found that the best trick is to sleep in sets of 2 hours, because long continuous sleep is hard to get when sleeping upright. The following day (Monday) was just a rest day. I kept my mind busy by doing some programming, and ensured that I was eating healthy enough to be able to take the medications and stomach them comfortably. I did not leave the hotel room because I was advised not to. Showering was a bit awkward, but I definitely learnt how to be more efficient with water usage since the operation. On Tuesday, I went back to the Diamond Hair clinic for my first wash. The wash process was super simple, and I was taught how to wash my hair for the following 9 days. You simply apply the foam to your transplanted regions, and wait 30 minutes before rinsing off with cold/luke-warm low-pressure water.You repeat this twice a day. I was given 3 foam bottles, which should be more than enough to cover the 10 days. There was nothing uncomfortable about this washing procedure. However, the removal of the bandages stings initially, but that discomfort fades fairly quickly. While we were waiting for the foam to settle, we discussed and reiterated postoperative protocols to ensure I have everything I need to go back home confident in being able to look after my newly implanted hairs. After the wash was complete, I was transported back to Istanbul airport to catch my flight home. For the last 9 days (since I have arrived back in the UK), I have been following all the instructions that Dr Mehmet Demircioglu provided me with, alongside sending daily pictures to him for continued analyses of the healing process. It was quite easy to make a routine out of this, and I have really enjoyed our extensive conversations about other treatments, such as PRP, finasteride and so on. The continued communication is something that you should not take for granted. It has been amazing to be able to quickly get answers for questions or concerns I have, even though there is a two hour time difference. One other thing worth mentioning is that I am thankful for Dr Mehmet Demircioglu’s continued encouragement in improving my lifestyle as a whole. Prior to my hair transplant, I would regularly vape. I have since discontinued all use of vapes, and drastically improved my lifestyle in many aspects, such as diet, use of hot water, sleep, and more. This is all due to Dr Mehmet Demircioglu convincing rationale, and making me realise that part of the reason why I had to take a trip to his clinic to begin with is due to these lifestyle choices I had made. I cannot thank him enough for helping me finally overcome my nicotine addiction. This concludes my review about my experience with Dr Mehmet Demircioglu and Diamond Hair clinic. My next review will focus purely on the results of the transplant after 12-18 months. My plan is to document the monthly progress to help prospective patients manage their expectations. I hope you find this review useful. I have added images of the top of my head pre and post operation. This was to show that my review is authentic, and based on an actual operation. I chose the top of my head to preserve my anonymity. However, I do appreciate that there may be follow up questions. I have created an email account, where I am more than happy to answer any questions. The email is docscraper@gmail.com.

I recently underwent hair restoration over at Diamond Hair Clinic. From the day of initial research, texts, photos examination, their approach was the right one, so were the explanations from customer service personnel. I was a little skeptical since there are so many options in Turkey but, thankfully I booked my procedure with a right one. Upon the day of the actual procedure, the way the treated me, all the personnel, was with the best of manners. I myself am, a medical practitioner, a family physician in the field of aesthetics, and being and aesthetics practice owner myself, I can say that the facilities over at Diamond Hair Clinic are nothing short than state of the art, down to the most minimal detail you can imagene. Finally but not least, the physician, Dr Mehmet Demircioglu is a true Gem, a very caring physician, preoccupied with the best of interests of his patient, in this case myself. He made me feel right at home and in comfort prior to the procedure. Very professional and courteous, as well as his well trained personnel. Although it is still too soon to talk about my results, I am Positive they will be the expected one. Thank you Diamond Hair Clinic and Thank you Dr Memhet!

My name is Brian, I’m a 50 year old Senior Project Manager who lives in the NE of England. I’ve been bald for a number of years and decided in 2021 to take the leap and get a hair transplant. Started my research online and spent a long time reading reviews and feedback. I chose the Diamond hair clinic on the basis of very good reviews and the fact that Dr Mehmet Demircioglu only carries out one procedure per day. After a number of communications along with a detailed personnel hair procedure plan / assessment, I decided to take the plunge and booked my flights. The process was pretty slick, I was collected from Istanbul airport in a executive large taxi and was taken to a very good hotel in Istanbul. Generally the communications were two way using WhatsApp which worked very well. The driver spoke English and was very helpful. The following day I was picked up promptly at my hotel and taken to the clinic. Dr Mehmet greeted me and we spent a good hour discussing the procedure and drawing my new hairline. Nothing that I asked for was too much and I never felt rushed or pressured. Mr Mehmet spoke very good English and was overall excellent to deal with (real top man)! It was a long day and the procedure was uncomfortable at times. However I was really looked after during the procedure and again when returning a couple of days later for my final assessment. The experience and procedure was well worth it. Based on my overall experience, I can’t recommend Dr Mehmet and the Diamond clinic enough. Overall the service was FIRST CLASS and the team were absolutely excellent. I’ve read some horror stories, hence I would strongly recommend doing your research and defiantly don’t pick the cheapest. I’ve attached a couple of pictures showing my hair before and after (six months). My hair growth / volume will continue to increase for another circa 12 months, but my results are very good at this stage. Hope this helps and good luck….

I spent several years gradually researching and learning more about hair transplants and landed on Turkey as destination to undergo the procedure. I reviewed around ten clinics and got into conversations with 3. None were thorough, asking for photos and replying immediately with low costs from $1500-3000. Upon deeper review of these clinics I found many reviews which ranged from good (many looked fake) to some stating that these lower cost surgeons had made massive mistakes with the patient’s hair—patchy growth, awkward hairlines, no growth at all. Many of these clinics only asked for reviews immediately after the surgery, at which point it would not be possible to determine the effectiveness of the procedure. Diamond Hair Clinic was thorough in their review of my headshots, I felt they answered my questions earnestly and had strong long term reviews. Receiving images of former patients with month by month follow up and visible progress was also enticing. I decided to move forward with Diamond Clinic. My hotel and car was handled upon my arrival in Istanbul, which I was more grateful for after spending a few weeks in the city and realizing how difficult getting a reliable ride and hotel can be. Upon the day of the procedure Dr Mehmet Demircioğlu and his team walked me through everything, answered my questions and despite my squeamish nature around needles, blood and medical procedures generally, handled me with care and attentiveness. We also had a levelled conversation about my hairline and results I could expect based on my donor density area. While the beginning was physically painful, the more anaesthtic administered throughout the procedure helped me feel painless and eventually I felt nothing and was drifting in and out of consciousness until the completion of the procedure. Upon completion Dr Mehmet Demircioğlu gave me a kit which contained a series of medications that would help me recover and avoid getting an infection. I stayed in the hotel the following day, ordering room service to avoid going outside. After that I returned to the clinic to take of the bandages from my head and learn how to wash my head. Again Dr Mehmet Demircioğlu was thorough, professional and attentive in giving me instructions in how to handle myself post-operation in terms of what to avoid (submerging my head in water, direct sunlight etc) and how to wash my head/vitamins to take to assist with growth. I am roughly 25 days post the procedure and have recovered well but am yet to see growth, this, as I understand however, is normal. The experience was smooth, I could not have asked for more. I will post again when I start to see results.

For almost the last five years, my hairline has been a source of frustration and lack of self-assurance for me. Until the day came when my hair began to thin out, I used to be full of life. I'm delighted to say that I've found a solution that works for my receding hairline. I'd been researching hair transplant clinics for months before choosing one. I read hundreds of hair transplant testimonials and browsed hair transplant forums, Reddit, for information about the top clinics and surgeons. Diamond Hair Clinic's wealth of knowledge and honesty convinced me that they could deliver on all of my expectations. Mahmod, Dr. Mehmet's assistant, was extremely helpful in discussing all of my worries. Before Diamond Hair Clinic, I had several consultations with hair clinics in Turkey and the United Kingdom. Most of them merely glanced at my few pictures and informed me how many grafts I needed before moving on to the financial aspect. It wasn't very encouraging. I am now ten months post-op and can't be happier with the outcomes thus far. My hair seems excellent, like it's been in the past, and I'm glad I selected Dr. Mehmet Demircioglu as a hair surgeon. It is well worth the money invested. Everything went off without a hitch, and the trip was well-planned. The medical facility, surgery, team, transport, Dr. Mehmet, and hotel were brilliant. I got precisely what I was promised in the hair transplant full package. I would highly recommend Dr. Mehmet and his team at Diamond Hair Clinic to anyone considering a hair transplant.

I had my hair transplantation procedure at Diamond Hair Clinic in November 2021. I chose the Sapphire Fue method, and so far I'm extremely happy because of that. The entire experience was excellent, from my initial Whatsapp message to my return home. The clinic's attitude was different from the other Turkish clinics I contacted; communication was prompt and informative, and all my questions were answered satisfactorily. Everything was explained clearly in the confirmation email I received from the clinic after booking my flight. From arrival to departure, everything went smoothly and according to plan. The surgery went smoothly thanks to careful preparation and teamwork. Dr. Mehmet Demircioglu made the incisions were precise, the team made extraction and implantation, all went smoothly. I was very pleased with the consultation I had with Dr. Demircioglu before the surgery. He explained the stages of the surgery to me, and we discussed my hairline. I think that this consultation was very helpful in putting me at ease before the surgery. The surgical team did an excellent job, and the operation took almost 9.5 hours. I used AirPods to listen to things that helped pass the time pleasantly. Although it's still early to judge the outcome, I am starting to see some progress after having my hair transplant procedure done 2.5 months ago. From what I can tell so far, it seems like only a waiting game at this point. I would have paid a little fortune to get done this procedure in the U.S. The price I paid for the Diamond Hair Clinic full package was somewhat pricey compared to other clinics in Turkey, but based on my experience with Dr. Mehmet Demircioglu and his team thus far, it was worth every penny. If you're looking for quality hair restoration, these are definitely the guys to go with

After careful research of hair transplant clinics I booked my hair transplant with doctor Mehmet Demircioglu as I had only heard good things and the impression I got while emailing and talking on WhatsApp was very good. Now 11 months post I do not regret it! Diamond Hair clinic booked me in at an excellent 5 star hotel and I booked my flights. Before arriving Istanbul I had already been contacted by my driver who took me to the hotel. Everything was very professional and transportation was included the whole stay. On the day of my operation I was picked up and driven to the clinic. Before starting the operation I had a pre-operation consultation where Dr. Demircioglu evaluated my donor area and after that he decided to increase the operation total graft number 500 grafts without charging extra-cost for it. Originally we agreed 5500 grafts but I had 6000 grafts implanted. The consultation was very thorough and Dr. Demircioglu took time to explain the process and answer all my questions. I was the only patient and had the doctor and his team to myself the whole day as promised according to their one-patient a day policy. During the 1 hour consultation Doctor took time to design my new hairline to make it look natural and we discussed how I wanted it to look. Dr. Demircioglu directly made the incisions with a Sapphire blade and his team made extraction and implantation. During operation the doctor controlled everything. After the operation doctor explained the post operation process, medications, and important points. After 1 day I was taken to the clinic again for wash and check up and the doctor gave me his personal number. I have sent photos every week for this year (every day first 10 days) and Dr. Demircioglu has given feedback and instructions and answered all my questions very quickly and helpfully. I can highly recommend Dr. Demircioglu and Diamond Hair clinic. Not only for the excellent and smooth service as mentioned above, but most of all for the result of my new hair. I am now 11 month after operation and the result is way better then I dared dream of and there’s still new hairs coming!

(This review is from a spouse and a mother who has been looking for fue hair transplant clinics in Istanbul for her husband and her son). After several research I booked a clinic in Istanbul for them. Cheap price 2500 Euros per person all inclusive (hotel and transport) which was too good to be true. However, all three of us booked the flight. The night before departure I felt uneasy and started reading the reviews and found out that the clinic does more than 10 patients at a time with no doctor involvement. I immediately cancelled all the appointment with that clinic. That night I searched and found out Diamond hair clinic and Dr. Mehmet who does one patient at a time and actually is present there ,supervises as well and does the incision himself and not only those , he performs the procedure in a hospital. I was overjoyed and sent a message to the clinic. Within an hour I received the message from Mahmoud ( who I can never thank enough ), he sent all my husband and my son's information to Dr. Mehmet ,who analyzed and sent it to me via email and whatsup. Every information was well organized and self explanatory. Nothing was ambiguous. Cost was very reasonable because Dr. Mehmet was going to be there and performing the surgery . The best thing anyone can ever wish for. Since we already booked the tickets for Istanbul, it did not go to a waste. Dr. Mehmet accommodated us same week. Mahmoud organized the hotel and transport for us. Initial consultation was very informative, included clear expectations, explanation of the actual procedure, and cost. Pre-op information was clear and concise and provided before the scheduled procedure date. My husband's transplant was first. When he was picked up I felt uneasy .Mahmoud gave me Dr. Mehmet's direct phone number. After few hours I sent Dr. Mehmet a message asking how my husband was doing. In few minutes Dr. Mehmet himself made a video call. I spoke to both the Doctor and my husband. That video call from the doctor put me to an ease, gave me more confidence and faith . This was my husband's words "dont worry , we are in safe hands. Everyone is very nice and caring" .That was enough for me to decide that how great Dr. Mehmet is . I recommend him to everyone who is wishing or are looking for a hair transplant clinic. Dr. Mehmet is godsend for all those who needs a hair transplant in Istanbul. Diamond Hair Clinic is the best . Plus a salute to the transportation team , Emir for been punctual and communicating everything regarding trasportation timing or change in car or driver. The hotel Mahmoud arranged for us was the best including lication , the caring staff plus room service after the surgery. 👍🙏 My husband and my son will review in few days.

I started looking for a clinic to perform a hair transplant in September 2020. During my research, I contacted many different clinics. After a couple of weeks of searching on the internet, I found Diamond Hair Clinic in a list of the top best clinics in Turkey. I contacted the administrator and he asked me to provide him with photos of my hair situation. After Doctor Mehmet reviewed my case, he sent to me a very detailed report containing the number of grafts I would need, their price, more information about the clinic, and other relevant information that I would need. The administrator was very professional and patient with all of my questions. After accepting their terms, I booked my flight which permitted them to schedule my operation. I stayed in contact with the administrator up until the day of the operation. One day before the date of my operation I arrived to the Istanbul Airport where I met their driver who was very courteous and professional. The trip took around 45 minutes and was quite comfortable on the way to the 5 star hotel that they recommended. I spent 3 nights at the hotel and on the day of the operation, the driver picked me up at 7am and drove me to the clinic where I met Doctor Mehmet along with his team. While waiting for my blood test results Doctor Mehmet and I were discussing all aspects of the operation. After we got the results of the blood test Doctor Mehmet started drawing my hairline. He told me that we can draw and re-draw the hairline as many times as I want until I am satisfied with the results. After I validated the hairline the Doctor and his team started the operation which was easier than I expected. The team was very kind and made me comfortable and they allowed me to pause the operation at any time. I had two main breaks, lunch and a dinner break and the delicious meals were provided by the clinic. When the operation finished, Doctor Mehmet gave some advice to me as well as some products that he told me to use days and months after the operation. The day following the operation the driver picked me up at the hotel in order to have a COVID-19 test performed. After the test I rested the remaining part of the day. On the morning of my last day the driver picked me at the hotel and drove me to the clinic where Doctor Mehmet washed my head for the first time after the operation. After I was done at the clinic, the driver took me to the Airport to get my COVID-19 results which allowed me to fly back to France. Since the operation and up until now, I am in contact with Doctor Mehmet personally so he can watch the evolution of my hair situation. So far my experience with Diamond Hair Clinic has been really outstanding and I appreciate every aspect of my relationship with them.

I am an American male age 55 that flew to Istanbul from Los Angeles during Covid on October 19 to have my 6000 fue hair graph operation done by Dr Mehmet at Diamond Hair Clinic. It was a very pleasant professional experience with no complications especially with Covid, and a 5 star treatment from the moment Emir picked me up at the Airport in a new Mercedes until he dropped me off a week later. I flew over 13 hours and since it was a long flight I opted to stay at a different 5 star hotel in Sisli called the Marriott Sisli because I am a Bonvoy member, and I preferred a nice view from the 30th floor over Istanbul and stayed extra days after the surgery to recuperate before flying back on such a long flight. Dr Mehmet office was kind enough to discount the price to accommodate this hotel change and that was extremely polite, and his Manager Mahmoud was a complete professional communicating all details via Whatsapp during the month prior to my flight about all aspects of the operation. This was not a quick decision for me as I have been debating doing this hair transplant for the last 2 years. I researched doctors in Beverly Hills but they cost over $30k and would not do more than 3000 fue hair graphs in one session so that option was not a good option plus the cost was way too high. I researched over 20 doctors in Turkey to make a good decision on the right doctor to pick and the right fue procedure using a Sapphire blade, and luckily a very good friend recommended the extra benefits of doing it in Istanbul versus in the Los Angeles so I felt much more comfortable going to Turkey since he had his hair operation also in Istanbul with great success. The reason I picked Dr Mehmet is for many solid reasons and I highly suggest you do the appropriate research as there are many options in Turkey but these are the main points that made my decision very easy: Dr Mehmet is a certified medical Hair Surgeon (versus the lower cost ones being a Hair Specialist with no formal medical training), and he speaks Fluent English (this was very important for me since I wanted to make sure that during the entire operation he would be present and available in case I had any questions etc) , and Dr Mehmet only operates on 1 patient per day in a top rated Hospital and uses an IV drip and Heart Rate monitor and can do 6000-7000 fue hair graphs in one day using a Sapphire blade (versus most others Doctors are like a factory pumping out 4-10 patients per day with only 3000 hair graphs maximum and do not provide any IV drip or Heart Rate Monitor, and even the top rated Istanbul doctors do not speak Fluent English and they only do the consultation and maybe 1 hour spent with the patient with some not even making the incisions, and most of all they are not available during the entire operation plus charge high prices like $8-12k just because they are famous and have their name on the side of the building like rich Beverly Hills doctors). And also Dr Mehmet provides a 2 hour consultation prior to the surgery and you do not have to pay for anything in advance, except provide your airline ticket confirmation, which made me more at ease that I could at any time change my mind if I did not feel comfortable with anything. And another reason that might not be so important for other people is that Dr Mehmet creates a custom natural hair line unlike most other Doctors that just draw a terrible round bowl like shape because that is the easiest way rather than spending extra time with each patient to draw a natual hair line to make it unique to each person. My good friend is one of those unlucky people that went to a less expensive clinic and came back with a cheap looking round bowl like hair line that did not look very natural. And the last point is that I do not enjoy needles and Dr Mehmet uses this new cool French device called the ‘Dermojet’ that is "needless" air compressed anesthesia device that pushes air with Novocain without needles to numb your head before the surgery. And last part is that Dr Mehmet price never changed even after I asked for a discount due to Covid the price never changed, and his price was very fair in the medium price range which was perfect for my budget. And after the operation I can easily assure you that it was a bargain since I was at his offices from 8am until 1 am which is an impressively long day and I felt no pain at all yet recommend you bring some headphones and good music or podcasts as it is a long day if you are going to do 6000 hair graphs like I did but it was well worth it. And the follow up after the operation from Dr Mehmet is superb and he requests that you send photos of your hair every week for the next 1.5 years. I arrived at the IST Airport in Istanbul on October 19 and purchased a $20 dollar airport visa next to the Passport Entry (make sure you do this first) and then proceeded to the Exit where I was greeted by Emir who was waiting for my arrival. The new Mercedes SUV Van was very nice and has free wifi which is a nice addition so I could confirm to my family and friends that I had arrived safely especially with Covid still pretty active. Emir drove me to my hotel which was only 30 mins away and I was surprised to notice that everyone in Istanbul was not only wearing masks but also doing Temperature checks at every location so it was much safer than in the Los Angeles where that rarely happens. My surgery was scheduled for 3 days later so that I could enjoy checking out the city of Istanbul which is a magical place . I was picked up from my hotel by Emir on Oct 22 at 730am so we could be at the Hospital at 8am for the operation. The hospital is a top rated JCI accredited called Medical Park just like Dr Mehmet office confirmed on Whatsapp and his offices are on the 9th floor. I was met by Dr Mehmet in his white doctor outfit with his name on the front. He is very professional and warm person and once we sat in his private office I felt at ease while he spent the next 2 hours going over every detail of the operation and we discussed different options for my 6000 hair graphs and he also recommended an additional 200 hair graphs on my side burn area which had worn off from my wearing sunglasses too much during long hikes over the years. Once we finished discussing the operation, we spent 90 minutes going over my hair line and figuring out the best natural hair line options. This was probably the most pleasant surprise as Dr Mehmet is a perfectionist and almost like a Da Vinci artist that wanted to ensure that I was happy with the exact look of my natural hair line and we went over 20-30 photos that I had from my 20s, 30s until now and decided on my original natural hair line plus he makes sure to draw a non symmetrical lines on both sides of the hair line to make it look more natural. This is a key element for me especially making sure that only single hair graphs are used in the front hair line to make it look more natural also. Some of the other doctors do not pay attention to this type of detail and it was another reason for using Dr Mehmet and I felt very comfortable that I had made the right and appropriate decision by selecting him as my hair surgeon. Once the hair line was drawn with him allowing for me to also provide input and feedback so it was a collaboration of both of us agreeing on the final look of the hair line, we then moved on to the operation. At this point, is when Dr Mehmet asked for me to pay for his services which I did in cash and felt very at ease moving forward. This would never happen in Los Angeles where doctors expect full payment before you even open the door or at least partial payment before arriving to their offices. Dr Mehmet has two wonderful nurse assistants , Gamze and Sehmuz who are very professional and were very patient during the entire operation. We started the operation at 10/11am and the operating room had a state of the art Heart Rate monitor and they inserted an IV drip attachment into my arm and connected me to the IV drip that has Saline, Antibiotics and Pain Killer combination to maintain fluid levels while they do the operation. My good friend later told me his operation did not have this option and in the middle of his operation he felt like he would faint and had no idea that the operation should require an IV drip due to the extraction and incisions creating some blood loss. The Dermojet was exactly as I imagined it and it was a painless experience and actually pretty cool feeling that numbed my skin of my head, and then they used the needles to inject long term anesthesia that last 24 hours. The first stage of extraction of the hair graphs took the 2 nurses about 3 hours to remove 6200 hair graphs from the back of my head and a little bit from behind my ear area since I did not want the option of using my beard neck area. We took a lunch break at 2/3pmwhich was a nice steak and fries meal and some natural peach juice and water. The entire time of the extraction of the hair graphs Dr Mehmet would come in and out of the operating room to check and see how I was doing which was very reassuring and professional. After the lunch, Dr Mehmet spent 3-4 hours making the 6200 precise incisions using the Sapphire blade and once again it was a very painless experience especially since I played my music the entire time and felt nothing at all. At 7-8 pm the 2 nurses started to insert the 6200 hair graphs which took about 5-6 hours until 1am next day and it was a pleasant experience but it required a lot of patience to lay down on the operating table for such a long amount of hours with short bathroom breaks in the middle. The last stage Dr Mehmet took me into his office to provide final instructions with medicines and lots of shampoo products, vitamins and his personal number to stay in contact. It was a 5 star experience from beginning until the end. I highly recommend Dr Mehmet and his team. Eric

And another reason that might not be so important for other people is that Dr Mehmet creates a custom natural hair line unlike most other Doctors that just draw a terrible round bowl like shape because that is the easiest way rather than spending extra time with each patient to draw a natual hair line to make it unique to each person. My good friend is one of those unlucky people that went to a less expensive clinic and came back with a cheap looking round bowl like hair line that did not look very natural. And the last point is that I do not enjoy needles and Dr Mehmet uses this new cool French device called the ‘Dermojet’ that is "needless" air compressed anesthesia device that pushes air with Novocain without needles to numb your head before the surgery. And last part is that Dr Mehmet price never changed even after I asked for a discount due to Covid the price never changed, and his price was very fair in the medium price range which was perfect for my budget. And after the operation I can easily assure you that it was a bargain since I was at his offices from 8am until 1 am which is an impressively long day and I felt no pain at all yet recommend you bring some headphones and good music or podcasts as it is a long day if you are going to do 6000 hair graphs like I did but it was well worth it. And the follow up after the operation from Dr Mehmet is superb and he requests that you send photos of your hair every week for the next 1.5 years. I arrived at the IST Airport in Istanbul on October 19 and purchased a $20 dollar airport visa next to the Passport Entry (make sure you do this first) and then proceeded to the Exit where I was greeted by Emir who was waiting for my arrival. The new Mercedes SUV Van was very nice and has free wifi which is a nice addition so I could confirm to my family and friends that I had arrived safely especially with Covid still pretty active. Emir drove me to my hotel which was only 30 mins away and I was surprised to notice that everyone in Istanbul was not only wearing masks but also doing Temperature checks at every location so it was much safer than in the Los Angeles where that rarely happens. My surgery was scheduled for 3 days later so that I could enjoy checking out the city of Istanbul which is a magical place . I was picked up from my hotel by Emir on Oct 22 at 730am so we could be at the Hospital at 8am for the operation. The hospital is a top rated JCI accredited called Medical Park just like Dr Mehmet office confirmed on Whatsapp and his offices are on the 9th floor. I was met by Dr Mehmet in his white doctor outfit with his name on the front. He is very professional and warm person and once we sat in his private office I felt at ease while he spent the next 2 hours going over every detail of the operation and we discussed different options for my 6000 hair graphs and he also recommended an additional 200 hair graphs on my side burn area which had worn off from my wearing sunglasses too much during long hikes over the years. Once we finished discussing the operation, we spent 90 minutes going over my hair line and figuring out the best natural hair line options. This was probably the most pleasant surprise as Dr Mehmet is a perfectionist and almost like a Da Vinci artist that wanted to ensure that I was happy with the exact look of my natural hair line and we went over 20-30 photos that I had from my 20s, 30s until now and decided on my original natural hair line plus he makes sure to draw a non symmetrical lines on both sides of the hair line to make it look more natural. This is a key element for me especially making sure that only single hair graphs are used in the front hair line to make it look more natural also. Some of the other doctors do not pay attention to this type of detail and it was another reason for using Dr Mehmet and I felt very comfortable that I had made the right and appropriate decision by selecting him as my hair surgeon. Once the hair line was drawn with him allowing for me to also provide input and feedback so it was a collaboration of both of us agreeing on the final look of the hair line, we then moved on to the operation. At this point, is when Dr Mehmet asked for me to pay for his services which I did in cash and felt very at ease moving forward. This would never happen in Los Angeles where doctors expect full payment before you even open the door or at least partial payment before arriving to their offices. Dr Mehmet has two wonderful nurse assistants , Gamze and Sehmuz who are very professional and were very patient during the entire operation. We started the operation at 10/11am and the operating room had a state of the art Heart Rate monitor and they inserted an IV drip attachment into my arm and connected me to the IV drip that has Saline, Antibiotics and Pain Killer combination to maintain fluid levels while they do the operation. My good friend later told me his operation did not have this option and in the middle of his operation he felt like he would faint and had no idea that the operation should require an IV drip due to the extraction and incisions creating some blood loss. The Dermojet was exactly as I imagined it and it was a painless experience and actually pretty cool feeling that numbed my skin of my head, and then they used the needles to inject long term anesthesia that last 24 hours. The first stage of extraction of the hair graphs took the 2 nurses about 3 hours to remove 6200 hair graphs from the back of my head and a little bit from behind my ear area since I did not want the option of using my beard neck area. We took a lunch break at 2/3pmwhich was a nice steak and fries meal and some natural peach juice and water. The entire time of the extraction of the hair graphs Dr Mehmet would come in and out of the operating room to check and see how I was doing which was very reassuring and professional. After the lunch, Dr Mehmet spent 3-4 hours making the 6200 precise incisions using the Sapphire blade and once again it was a very painless experience especially since I played my music the entire time and felt nothing at all. At 7-8 pm the 2 nurses started to insert the 6200 hair graphs which took about 5-6 hours until 1am next day and it was a pleasant experience but it required a lot of patience to lay down on the operating table for such a long amount of hours with short bathroom breaks in the middle. The last stage Dr Mehmet took me into his office to provide final instructions with medicines and lots of shampoo products, vitamins and his personal number to stay in contact. Dr Mehmet provided his personal phone number and Whatsapp and I have been sending him weekly photos for him to provide updates. I even had a minor accident hitting my head 1 month after surgery and he was immediately available for professional advice. It was a 5 star experience from beginning until the end. I highly recommend Dr Mehmet and his team. EM

I had been considering hair transplant for quite some time. I am in my early 30s and started shedding/receding when I was 26. Personally I did not take good care of my hair as I was too busy with work and family but soon realized that it was definitely affecting my overall appearance. Before I made my mind about getting a hair transplant, I started using minoxidil which definitely helped in some areas. I had also considered finasteride but decided not to take it due to its risk. When I finally started researching different clinics, it was confusing that every clinic apparently has amazing 5 star reviews making it even harder to choose the right one. After thorough research I narrowed it down to 3: Hair of Istanbul, Now Hair Time and of course Diamond Hair Clinic. Both Hair of Istanbul and Now Hair Time have good reputation no doubt about it and the before and after pictures look amazing on IG and for some people that is good enough but here are some of the main reasons why you may not want to go with the two clinics. 1. the entire procedure is carried out by the assistants without the involvement nor the presence of the doctor 2. Doctors are not accredited hair transplant surgeons. 3. Language barrier for those who cannot speak turkish and this is important when you have to explain # of grafts in certain areas or when creating the line before the surgery. From the 3, Diamond Hair Clinic is the only one with a qualified hair transplant surgeon (Dr. Mehmet Demircioglu). It is the only one that takes one patient a day and utilizes the entire day to be with the patient throughout the surgery and no language barrier. These are some of the reasons why I decided to go with Diamond. I started my conversation with Diamond through WhatsApp where I sent my photos and received a comprehensive report from the doctor in 2 days outlining the # of grafts that can be extracted and areas that requires implantation. Based on the pictures I sent, they mentioned that 5500 grafts can be extracted which was more than what I was hoping for. I must say that Diamond was the only clinic that provided such a professionally detailed report which was produced by the doctor vs the other clinics who basically only provided the # of grafts extracted and the price. I had made up my mind once I saw the report and booked my flight to Istanbul, Turkey for Dec 2020. The package included 3 night stay at a 5 star hotel which included free breakfast and transportation. Also includes 6 month hair care kit which costs around 750 EURO. All I had to do is book my own flight and provide them with the details regarding my flight so they can pick me up from the airport. On the day of the surgery, I was picked up from the hotel (Elite World Prestige Hotel) which is a 5 star hotel very close to the Taksim Square and was taken to the hospital at 11AM. Mind you that it was on a Sunday which was a day off for the Doctor but he worked around my schedule and made it possible. I met Dr.Mehmet Demircioglu for the first time at the hospital along with his amazing team. The consultation took about an hour where the doctor explained the entire process, took my blood sample, drew the line on my head, and inspected my donor area. What was surprising to me was that after the doctor inspected my donor area, he decided that 6500 grafts can be extracted because my donor area was really good. Very few hair transplant surgeons can pull off that many numbers of grafts in one sessions and Dr. Mehmet Demircioglu is one of them. The doctor explained that there will be 3 stages of the surgery. First is the extraction of the grafts from my donor area done by his team, this process took around 4 hours and required local anesthesia which is quite unpleasant for about 1 min and painless for the rest of the procedure. Second is the incisions done by the doctor which took about 3 hours and also required local anesthesia, this is the most important stage as it requires great attention to detail using the sapphire blade to create incisions. lastly is to implant the extracted grafts done by his team and took around 6 hours, once this stage was completed they also applied the PRP treatment. Since 6500 grafts were extracted, the entire procedure including lunch, washroom and walk breaks took around 16 hours. Breaks was definitely helpful because you are literally sitting in position for long hours. All in all the procedure was comfortable and I even managed to take small naps during the surgery once the local anesthesia kicked in. Once the surgery was done, I was recommended by the doctor to stay inside my hotel the following day to avoid any infection which is what I did. On my last day, I was picked up by their driver in the morning and taken to the hospital where the doctor took off the bandages from my donor area, gave me my first wash, provided instruction on how to take care of my transplanted hair and gave me a 6 month hair care kit. He also provided his personal cell number to update him of my progress and ask any question that I may have. It has been just over 2 weeks since I got my hair transplant and I am extremely satisfied with the results so far and would highly recommend Diamond Hair Clinic to anyone who is planning on getting their hair transplant. :)

Just wanted to share my experience with Dr. Mehmet Demircioglu from Diamond Hair Clinic. A few colleagues from work and a few friends told me about getting their hair transplant procedure done in Istanbul, so I knew there would be a lot of options when I started researching. After looking a multiple site and reading patient experiences, I started contacting doctors by sending pictures. Some clinics got back to me quite quickly with prices and number of grafts and so flat our told me that I was not a good candidate due to low amount of hair in the donor area. The quotes I got back were very reasonable. But when I started looking further into those clinics I found mixed reviews and people saying that the doctor only spent limited time with him and whole procedure was performed by technicians. Reviews of Diamond Hair clinic was one of the few that said Dr. Mehmet Demircioglu only books one patient a day and so that he has the time to do the incisions himself. Since I had small amount of hair in my donor area, I didn't want to take any chances where I may have good or bad experience with technicians and decided to contact Dr. Mehmet's clinic. I did not get a quote right away instead got response that Dr. Mehmet is looking at the pictures and will get back with his response. I thought he would just tell me that I wasn't a good candidate, but after a week and a half I got a nice report with detailed explanation of the procedure and coverage amount in the frontal area versus the crown area due to limited donor hair. The price given was also a lot more than the other quotes I received. I decided to go with him because his report just gave me a good amount of confidence and as mentioned didn't want to take any chances with technicians even though the price was much higher (4000 Euro). Contacted his clinic for a date and when I got one they said all they needed was copy of air tickets and no deposits. I arrived into Istanbul on Nov 17 for procedure on the 18th. Prior to arrival, the driver, Emir contacted me and told me where he would be waiting and upon arrival I went to the location and he was waiting for me. I got in the van and he drove me to the Elite World Istanbul Hotel, checked me in and told me when he would pick me up the next morning. He arrived right on time, took me to the clinic and that's where I met Dr. Mehmet. Dr. Mehmet spoke English fluently and spent a good amount of time explaining the different steps in the procedure. He mentioned that even though he said 5000 grafts he would try to do more if possible and may even try to get some grafts from the beard area. He then spend a good amount of time drawing hairline that would look natural and explained that he didn't mind spending time to get it right. Once done, the nurses shaved my hair and proceeded to do the extraction which took about 3 hours. They were very nice and told me that anytime I need bathroom/water break - they will accommodate. After the extraction, took a 45 min lunch break - where I went to the doctor's office and food was waiting. After this, the doctor and I went back to the operating room and Dr. Mehmet started the incisions with the sapphire blade. This went quite fast as we were discussing many things in addition to the procedure. And finally after another quick break, the last part of the procedure started where 2 nurses were implanting the extracted hair in the incisions with Dr. Mehmet inspecting from time to time. This finished a little after midnight. Post-operation I went into Dr’s office and Dr. Mehmet took time to explain post care routine and medications for the next few days. He told me to rest the next day in hotel and return the day after for the first wash. The driver takes me back to hotel, and I followed his instructions. Dr. Mehmet texts me in the evening to check how I was doing. The next afternoon the driver arrives to take me back to the clinic for the first wash. Dr. Mehmet shows me how to do the wash and explains what to do and how to care for the next 10 days and months after. He gives me his personal number to send pictures on a daily basis for the first 10 days and once per week after that. And tell me to contact him with any questions. I was quite pleased with my experience and would recommend him to anyone looking to get implant in Istanbul even if it means spending more than the others to ensure you are getting a good experience.

Hello, i am a 30 year year from Canada dealing with hair loss issues for the last 5 years. I finally decided i needed to do something about in Dec 2020. I was just casually reviewing reviews from other clinics in Turkey but i never actually reached out to anyone. My first attempt to reach out to some one was Diamond Hair Clinic. The reviews for this clinic had me sold which is why i reached out. I spoke to Mahmood via Whatsapp. He was extremely polite, professional and most of all informative. He requested photos of my head and send it to Dr. Mehmet. Within a couple hours the doctor had reviewed and they emailed me a report. The doctor advised i needed about 4000 grafts to successfully cover my balding areas (since i was not not completely bald). Finally, i was able to book some time off work so i can book my operation. After a 10 hr flight i was greeted by Emir (driver) who transported me to my hotel. He was nice and we had a pleasant conversation during our 50 min drive to the Hotel. I stayed at the World Elite Hotel in Istanbul. The hotel is clean and nice, it was perfect for me especially since breakfast was free. The next day i had my operation scheduled for 830 am. Emir again picked me up after i ate my breakfast. I went to the hospital and i was greeted by the doctor and his 2 nurses. We spent about an hour reviewing how the procedure was going to go. Initially he quoted by to do 4000 grafts but upon review he decided 5500 grafts would be more adequate for my case. He did not charge me anything more than what we initially agreed to which was amazing. His approach and demeanour was extremely comforting. The first part of the procedure the nurses took about 2.5 hrs to extract grafts from the back of my head. We later had a break and lunch was provided. It was a filling lunch and food was hot which was nice. After lunch we continued, at this point Dr. Mehmet Demircioglu was directly involved in doing the FUE Sapphire incisions in my head, this took about 2.5 hrs. After this was complete the final stage was the implanting the grafts. This process took about 6 hours or so. Most of the procedure was pain free and every couple hours we took breaks which was helpful especially during a long operation . After about 11 hours the operation was complete, me and the doctor met for a 30 min consultation as what i should i do during my rest day. I rested for an entire day and then met the doctor for my first wash prior to boarding my plane back home. The doctor at this point explained everything thoroughly and even gave me his personal number. He wanted to see photos of head on a daily basis for the first few months after that i was to send photos atleast once a week for 18 months. He also provided me with a hair loss kit which contains shampoos and vitamins (valued at 750 euros), this was included in the package. All i can say is that from the start i decided to go with Diamond Clinic and in no way have regretted it. As the other reviews stated this clinic is absolutely the best from the beginning to the end. No surprises , everything was as they said would happen. The doctor following up with my personally also shows how committed he is to his work. You will not find someone more passionate and caring as Dr. Mehmet Demircioglu and his team. A big thank you to everyone as now i await my results.

Operation Day - 15 September 2020 Sapphire Fue Hair Transplant Operation Graft Number 6500 I am writing to review my overall experience with Dr. Mehmet Demircioglu and his team at the Diamond Hair Clinic. After doing lots of researches I finally decided to take a trip to Istanbul. I chose Diamond Hair Clinic with Dr. Mehmet Demircioglu because: 1) the doctor is renowned specialist. 2) the doctor is performing the most critical part of the operation- the incisions. 3) they accept only one patient a day and the next day are off. 4) best value for the money- cost, quality and quantity. 5) lots of positive reviews online. Since they accept one patient a day I hurried to book my operation day and one week after I flew there. Upon arrival at Istanbul`s airport I was picked up by driver called Emir. He is very professional and the communication with him throughout my stay in Istanbul was perfect. The Elite Hotel I was staying is a luxury 5 stars located right next to Taksim square and close to many other sights. On the day of the operation I went to the Diamond Hair Clinic at 8 am. Dr. Mehmet Demircioglu and his two nurses welcomed me and then we had face to face consultation pre-operation with the doctor which lasted an hour. He drew a natural looking hairline and explained to me all the stages of the surgery. The nurse shaved my head and we started the first stage of the procedure where the two technicians extracted 5500 grafts from my donor area from the back of my head and 1000 graft from my beard in order to provide high density on the implanted area. After the extraction of the grafts I had my lunch break and then we proceeded to the second stage - the incisions which were done directly by the doctor himself using Sapphire blade. Third stage implanting the hair grafts was performed by the two nurses and was the longest one . During that period of time Dr. Mehmet came in numerous times to check that I was OK. When we finished the last stage the doctor explained to me after the operation process, medications and important points.He gave me his personal phone number to be able to contact him at any time and then I returned back to the hotel at 4:30 am ! The day after the operation I had to fully rest and on the next day I returned to the clinic for my first head wash. Dr. Mehmet gave me Shampoo and Vitamin Kit for use up to 6 months after surgery . During the first ten days after the operation, after each washing process, I had to send my four side head photos to the doctor for checking. Once the ten days were completed he demanded weekly head photos to follow my after operation progress. Nearly 3 months after the surgery, I started to see some good results. Although I`m in a "Shock Hair Loss" stage, some of my hair started to grow. Overall, I was very happy with the service I received! Thank you, Dr. Mehmet and your team for your professionalism and hard work!

Before i start let me share with you all ,this was my second hair transplant .even it was my second time in Turkey it wasn't easy to find the best clinic with the best results. I am very pleased with my decision of doing my second hair transplant with Dr. Mehmet Demircioglu of Diamond hair clinic. To start ,with i was planning to have my second hair transplant since beginning of this year as i noticed i lost a lot of hair from my crown area (almost bald). So i started my research ,even though i had my first hair transplant done in 2016 with Dr. Koray at Asmed, one of the reputated name in Hair transplan field . In search of better option with better result that can suits my budget too. I was somehow ok with the Dr. Koray results but wasnt happy with the post care . Long story short i was looking for better clinic, during my search i contacted almost 20 clinics in Istanbul. They all are offering me the price range of between 2000 Euro to 2700 Euro , but different numbers of grafts . Funny part is that they all asking me for the photos of my head from different angles and as soon as i sent the photos . Most of them came back staright away with the package and graft numbers just within few mins ,made me think is there real Doctor who looked at my photos or just assistant. After more research and going through other people review i came to know in most of the cases Dr. Is not even involve in the surgery ,he doesnt even draw the hair line.i.e you paying for clinic and Doctor name but your transplant is being performed by assistant or trainees. Anyhow i was impressed with some clinics when they came back to me and ask to send the photos of my head that wasnt took properly .it gave me the feel that atleast they look at my photo properly before deciding hiw many grafts i needed. It helped me to narrow down my search to few clinics . I decided to use this covid situation to do my transplant as i am off from work. My search got intense and i start asking more and more questions to this hair transplant climics. Finally i found two clinics where Dr. Performs the most important part of hair transplant( incisions). Dr Cinik and Dr.Mehmet Demircioglu I asked them to send me the details. After going through their packages , i found Dr. Cinik offeres me two kind of packages one where Doctor is involve (expensive one) and one without Doctor(Cheaper one) Diamonr Hair climic offers only one package with 100% involvement of Dr. Mehmet Demircioglu. The most important reason that help me to choose, Diamomd hair clinic for my second hair transplant is, 1.) they accept only one patient for a day . 2.) Dr. Mehmet Demircioglu performing the critical incisions part. Once i contacted Diamond hair clinic ,for the booking . They respond me with the professional way and provided me all the details with the availiability. I booked my spot for 6th of November 2020. I reached on 5th of November ,Driver was waiting for me . He droped me to my hotel ,on the way he stopped in the supermarket as i wanted to buy some stuff. On Morning of 6th November ,Driver picked me from the hotel around 7:30 am and took me to the Diamond hair clinic. I was hopping some assistant will come and talk to me . I was amazed ,Dr. Mehmet was there by himself . He took me into their cabin and we had long talk there. Where is clears all my doubts ,i was so pleased that Dr himself is there for me . Once i was fully confident , Dr. Drew the hair line for my transplant ,he drew few times unless i was ok with that hair line. He told me that he will use 4500 grafts from back of my head and 1000 grafts from my beard area as i already had one hair transplant before. He explained me that with this many numbers of grafts he can cover the other part of the head where i loosing the hair aswell beside my crown area. Was so good to see that Dr. Is involve so much and he is thinking as patient point of view. After the hair line draw, i was taken to the operation room . Where Dr. Mehmet experianced and professional nurse took the Grafts.during all this time Doctor came so many time to check on me to make sure everything is going perfect. After they took the grafts ,i had lunch in Doctors Cabin. After lunch me and Dr. Mehmet went to operation room for incisions process . I was so happy that the whole process is performed by one and only Dr. Mehmet ,event though this process took several hours but it was all done by Doctor himself. After incisions process ,Doctors team started planting process . As its a long process we took a break inbetween had the dinner and then finished the process . Cant believe we started 7:30 in morning and its nearly 2 am of next day and during all these long hours doctor was there. After the transplant Dr. Mehmet and me sat in his office ,where he took my photos and discuss the post opertaions precautions . He asked me to rest next day and come for was the day after tomorrow . He gave me his personal watts app number ( such a good feel) ,that means you can talk to doctor anytime if needed. Dont have to talk to nurse or assistants. He advised me to send the photo of my head every day for first 10 days and then every week for first few months. After explaning the use of medication we finished our day it was nearly 2:30 am . On 8th of November 2020 i came to Dr. Clinic for my first wash. Here again Dr. Mehmet washed my head and explained me the whole process . He gone through again with all medications took my photo and gave me the final good bye. Its already 5 days and i am talking to Dr.Mehmet everyday In the end i just wanna say i am hoping for the best result and am sure i will get it. But so far i am very happy with my experiance with Dr. Mehmet and Diamond hair clinic, its worth every single penny. I higly recommend Dr. Mehmet and Diamond hair clinic to my friends and family. I never seen doctor like Dr. Mehmet who was fully involved all the time during the transplant ,he cleared all my doubts in professional way. I liked the way he directly shares his number with patients so he can review the progress and provide the assistant if needed. In the end i just wanna say ,if anyone looking for hair transplant without worrying much. Dr. Mehmet Demircioglu is your guy and Diamond hair clinic is your place in Turkey. Thanks

This review is about my experience with Dr Mehmet Demircioglu of Diamond hair clinic and I how I arrived at choosing Diamond hair clinic, pardon me for it being very long to read however since I wanted to make it easy for future hair transplant candidates to choose from right clinic, I have tried capturing as much details as possible to choose from hundreds of hair transplant clinics that are there in Istanbul. I would focus on most critical parts of procedure and operational process around it to ensure comfort when going through surgery at foreign land most probably you have visited for first time. To start with I had an idea that Istanbul is hub for availability of hair transplant and cost effective through discussions with friends, when I started searching through web for hair transplant clinics in Istanbul their are hundreds of them comes up and most of them have very high rate of positive reviews and its really difficult to shortlist on which are top and trusty worthy clinics, reading through some of low rated reviews it was evident that their are many clinics where end to end surgery done by technicians and the surgeon was either there for name sake or just there on paper, most of the clinics offered english translator, Before going any further I had listed down my requirement as following 1.Clinic with good reviews 2.Dr took responsibility for end to end procedure and present through the process 3. Dr Spoke in English and explained every step 4. Dr made incisions which is most critical part of transplant 5. Provides end to end package. 6. Dr/Clinic is credited with credible international body, 7. Post care commitment. I had contacted several clinics and received response and price quote based on pictures I have sent, I was surprised to see many of those responses to be just mention of price and number of grafts they recommend to transplant, one that caught my eye was response from Diamond hair clinic which appeared very professional (more like medical analysis report) looking at I was sure that Dr Mehmet Demircioglu had looked in to every detail of my baldness and donar area based on which he had drawn possible new hairline and distribution of 6500 grafts between front area, mid area and crown area with Sapphire FUE Hair Transplant technique, I was convinced need of having higher number of grafts due to very thin hair density. However all other clinics recommended 3000-4000 grafts without giving much rationale, other striking factors were that Dr Mehmet Demircioglu did one procedure per day and apart from being FUE accredited he spoke excellent English, I cannot imagine a situation where I have to go through translator to understand what is happening over my head under anaesthesia . Once I had finalised on Diamond hair clinic communicated my intent to get hair transplant with them, I got the available dates and I needed to just show copy of my flight bookings to get the dates reserved whereas many other clinics ask for deposit of several hundred Euro/Dollar.Since I wanted to get hair transplant done soon Dr Mehmet Demircioglu and team were kind enough to agree to do the procedure on Sunday otherwise typically Sundays are holiday. My Sapphire FUE Hair Transplant procedure was booked for 18th October 2020 and I arrived in Istanbul on 17th October, Driver was waiting for me outside Istanbul airport here I need to mention about transport guy Emir who works with Dr Dr Mehmet Demircioglu is very professional and communicates step by step details with you on WhatsApp throughout the entire transportation until you leave the Istanbul to Home, he dropped me from airport to Elite World Istanbul hotel which is decent hotel to stay which is in good location. On Operation day Driver took me from Hotel to Diamond hair clinic here I met Dr Dr Mehmet Demircioglu and his team for the first time, he is very professional person with friendly approach towards patient, it does not take much time for all concerns in your mind to go away and get settled, once you are comfortable Dr Dr Mehmet Demircioglu takes you through summary of procedures lined up for the day and starts with hair line design he doesn’t rush through the process rather draws and reviews until one is satisfied after which he uses permanent marker to finalise it took around 40 minutes, he takes time to explain details of procedure and what Is going to happen. Phase 1 of procedure hair follicles extraction from marked donor area is explained by Dr Dr Mehmet Demircioglu to his nurses and also explained to me on what will happen throughout extraction process, one need lay on stomach for this entire procedure as hair needs to be extracted from back of the head, nurses prepare for anaesthesia with needle-less anaesthesia device, even after that you will slight discomfort and pain during injection, I cannot imagine how it will be without the contactless anaesthesia, for about 4 hours nurses extracted 6500 grafts, Dr Mehmet Demircioglu every now and then updated on what percentage of extraction is complete, post extraction procedure he had already arranged for lunch break with rich meal. Throughout the extraction procedure one can take bio breaks by informing nurses or doctor. Phase2 of procedure Incisions, this is the most critical process of the procedure where thousands of micro incisions are made on your head hence it must be done by safe qualified hands, Dr Mehmet Demircioglu hair transplant surgeon made incisions with the sapphire blade and he engages with you constantly with several topics related to transplant, it took about four hour doctor to complete the process which was completed without any pain or discomfort. Phase3 of procedure is Implantation the most laborious and time consuming part, here two nurses relentlessly implanted extracted hair one by one and Dr Mehmet Demircioglu was present and constantly reviewing the progress and updated me on how much is left, implant finished for me around 3.30 AM next day morning and you can see Dr Mehmet Demircioglu even at so late their was no rush he calmly explains steps to be taken care post operation including taking utmost care of implanted area. Next day 19th October rested at hotel and later in the afternoon Emir took care of taking to airport for Covid test which is needed for return journey, same day Dr Mehmet Demircioglu was waiting for me around 9.00 PM at clinic for 1st wash he waked me through wash process since one need to repeat the same process for next 9 days, I had to get the wash done on next day of transplant since I had early morning return flight day after. I would like to highlight the post consultation commitment of Dr Mehmet Demircioglu he shares his number directly with patient and reviews progress and issues for next ten days any concerns or issues he clarifies immediately, so far its 3 weeks and Dr Mehmet Demircioglu is in touch with me and from now onwards he will review the progress on weekly basis for next one and half years that’s astonishing and worth the money you pay him. To summarise my experience with Dr Mehmet Demircioglu and Diamond hair clinic was they not only checked all my requirements but also executed all of them to my complete satisfaction, based on my conversation with Dr Mehmet Demircioglu its evident that he is passionate about providing good look to his patients, he prefers quality over quantity and expects money to be by product of his work than money being primary goal, I would recommend Dr Mehmet Demircioglu to my friends and family as he is very professional and trustworthy who delivers according to his commitments made during consultation. My last words are with Dr Mehmet Demircioglu you are in safe hands no need to worry at all when going from a different part of the world.
