Essendo un professionista del settore chirurgico, ho scelto FUE CAPILAR perché il Dr. DOGAN TURAN opera un solo paziente al giorno e con tecnica DHI. Il suo team rispetta le norme vigenti di asepsia e il suo protocollo operatorio é perfetto dalla consultazione pré operatoria fino al post. Op. I suoi collaboratori José e Seda sono dei professionisti con un alto senso dell'etica professionale. Consiglio questa clinica per chi come me non vuole acquistare un prezzo ma una soluzione adattata ai propri bisogni. Christian.

Everything from first contact on WhatsApp was perfect. I felt I received the very best quote on a procedure that was above the rest. Not a hair mill experience but a procedure by a doctor on only one patient a day in a hospital that was clean and modern. He only does DHI procedure which I feel is the best. The pick up and hotel was great and the translator really helped in so many ways with everything. The entire staff was dedicated to me receiving the very best care. Great aftercare support as well. I would highly recommend Fuecapilar and Dr. Dogan to anybody wanting the best procedure done. Thanks Dr. Dogan and team!

Great service and staff. The doctor is visible well trained and he does the implantation process by himself. The technician who does the extraction is also very professional, the staff if very friendly, Jose and Seda, the owners are always answering on WhatsApp questions before and after the surgery. Great experience overall and I personally recommend it to anyone who is looking for professional HT clinic in Turkey.

Like everyone else I carried out my research on the benefits of FUE Vs DHI, I decided DHI would be best for my hair loss.

After communicating with numerous clinics in Turkey, I chose Fuecapliar due to their information, transparency, communication and professionalism. Seda was particularly impressive. The fact that they are currently restricting the Doctor to one patient a day also encouraged me.

Other Clinics run more of a HT farm with multiple patients in a day and use different technicians. Whilst loads of guys on here have had great success with this business model, I preferred to know who my Doctor would be in advance and that I would be receiving a more personal service.

The doctor they use for thier DHI program is Dr Dogan Turan, he has many years of experience of different HT methods but now focuses solely on DHI due to the benefits he feels it offers over the other methods he's used. He is one of the pioneers for HT in Istanbul, appearing on TV programmes to talk about HT.

I was also swayed by the fact that the hairline design and all follicle insertion would be carried out by Dr Turan himself. One of the founders of Fuecapliar (Jose) also trusted Dr Turan enough to do his own HT back in January 2019 (Good enough for him? Good enough for me!). I've seen the before photos, (because I asked for them) and having met him personally within the last 7 days I was most impressed with his own results 10 months down the line.

In the end I chose DHI because I felt my recovery period would be quicker, the method is less intrusive, the hairs can be placed with more accuracy, direction and density creating a realistic look (This was particularly important for myself as I wanted to create a strong hairline and to increase the density on the scalp and crown).

I was in Istanbul for 8 days in total, I also fitted in a holiday with my partner before the HT and I can fully recommend it if you've got the time. (That's a holiday story all of its own!).

In total my HT covered 4 days...

Day 1 - Blood tests, sign paperwork, meet the team, discuss the HT process and discuss my expectations.

Day 2 - Design hair line (Dr Turan), take pill to calm my nerves! Shave head, take photos, freeze up my head, follicle extraction by technician, sort out follicles into singles doubles and triples by technicians. Follicle insertion using Choi pen (Dr Turan), lunch and then repeat follicle extraction and insertion. In total 2150 in day 1, 1150 morning session and 1000 afternoon.

Day 3 - Repeat of day 1 with another 2000. In total they transplanted 4150 follicles.

Day 4 - Post op check up, first wash. Big send off and photos with the team.

So what impressed me most?...

The overall professionalism, the customer care and attention to detail. The fact that they had one technician doing the extraction and three technicians loading the choi pen so that the Dr could insert them quickly to minimise the time the follicles are out the body. First follicles extracted are first to go back in. The longer the follicles are out the body the less chance they have of survival. I felt that harvesting 4000 follicles in one sitting and in one day is not a good idea as used by some clinics if they are being inserted up to 6 to 8 hours later! I worked out that my follicles were at worst out for about 2 hours at most.

All in all I have to say the service exceeded my expectations. My reservations of going to Turkey were completely wrong. My partner who worked in the NHS as a Midwife strongly advised me to use a clinic in the UK. Even she had to admit I would not have received service like it back in the UK and certainly not for the amount of money I paid, with a nice holiday flung in. If anyone has any questions feel free to ask me. I'm putting this post up because I know how hard it was for me to make my choice. I've uploaded before photos, and some taken on the day of my first wash.

My hair transplant was planned to be done in 2 days consecutively, 4500 grafts overall.

I stayed in a 4* hotel in the asian side of Istanbul, the hotel is nothing to highlight, but I did not come to Turkey to stay in a 7* hotel but to do a hair transplant, it was a normal 4* hotel.

Pick up at the airport went smoothly, there was a person awaiting with my name, that person accompanied me to the pick up point where a van picked me up and drove me to the hospital. They do the blood extraction the day before of the surgery to have the results ready first thing next day.

I was picked up at the hotel at 9am, and at 9.15am I was seated with Dr. Turan and my translator for the consultation and design. They checked my donor area hair thickness (they told me they do this to chose the right punch size during the extraction), they asked several questions about my health and alopecia history and then Doctor Turan did my hair transplant design after I explained what were my expectations.

From the consultation room, we went to the surgery room to shave my head and wash it and then straight to the anesthesia. I was quite frightened due to the horror stories I heard from other patients but with the sedative pill I was given and the painless anesthesia used, when they started to inject the local anesthesia, I felt it but it was not pain, just a bit of discomfort.

Then, they started the extraction....something I like from their approach is that they don´t extract all the grafts in one go. In my case, they did one extraction of 1100 grafts and then Dr. Turan did the implantation. We did a lunch break, and then they repeated the process again, 1000 grafts extracted and implanted and we call it a day. By 4pm I was back in the hotel.

I was feeling quite lazy to hang around, so I just stayed in the room watching some netflix and went down for dinner, then I tried to find a proper position to go back to sleep and following the advises given by them, I manage to sleep 6 hours overall with couple of breaks.

Next day was pretty much the same than the first one, main difference was that we moved to the surgery room as soon as I arrived to the hospital. Then 1200 grafts extracted and implanted in the morning , break for lunch, another 1200 after lunch and finally the PRP treatment.

The 3rd day, before going to the airport, I went to the hospital to be checked by Doctor Dogan Turan and for the first wash. One of the nurses removed my bandages, applied the lotion, cleaned my donor area and then washed my head while the translator was giving me all the instructions for the following washes.

So overall, it was a long process but everything was very well managed, everyone in the team knew what to do, and Doctor Dogan Turan implanted all my grafts. I can´t be more grateful to the Doctor and the whole team of FUECAPILAR. It is incredible what they have achieved in my HT.

Great experience, the customer service team is awesome and was with me through the whole process. The Doctor is kind, cheerful and the team is happy as well. The results are still progressing but for a 6 months time period i am happy with my result and pretty sure the end result will be good as well.
