Hair loss, dull lacklustre hair, dry brittle or thinning hair, dandruff and even grey hair can all provide clues about things [...]

An apple a day keeps the doctor away. According to Wikipedia, this is a shortened version of a Welsh proverb from the 1860’s. The original version was "Eat an apple on going to bed, and you’ll keep the doctor from earning his bread." It was shortened to the current phrase around 1899. Is it true? [...]

Recovery - the Most Neglected Part of Training When it comes to training, there is assumption that the more you can do, the better. In theory it makes sense, but when you break down the training process, the importance of recovery quickly becomes very clear. Training is a catabolic process, which means it causes tissues [...]

When researching Hair Transplant clinics, I was drawn more to clinics that had a base in London. I saw that Get Hair had great reviews online and a friend of mine also had a transplant through them.
I got in touch online and sent Stuart a few photos of my hair from different angles via the online chat.
Stuart was a great help, as he let me know all about the procedure and what to expect whilst answering any questions I had.
He got back to me with a quote and after a few months I contacted him again through email to arrange booking a date for my transplant. We set a preliminary date and I booked my own flights to Istanbul, as i was made aware these wouldn’t be included in the final price of my procedure. (The price included the procedure, 2 night stay in a hotel with breakfast, airport transfers and some aftercare products and medication).
After I booked my flights, I paid a deposit for the transplant and secured my dates. In the lead up to the procedure Stuart stayed in contact and regularly sent me updates reminding me on things I needed to do and not do prior to the transplant. Including information on my airport transfers in Istanbul, which was good to know as I was wary of this part of the travelling most.
When I arrived in Istanbul I was picked up at the airport and brought to my hotel. I received a text from a representative in Istanbul giving me information about my procedure the next day and telling me what time they’d be collecting me from the hotel. The hotel was basic enough but clean and the food was nice, as well as the staff who were more than helpful.
I met Cansu, the rep for Dr Ilker the next morning at reception of my hotel and she walked me to the clinic a few minutes away. I signed some forms and had some before pictures taken.
I then took some medication and my head was shaved. Dr Ilker then had a consultation with myself where we designed my new hairline.
When I was happy with it, the nurses then injected anaesthetic into the areas where the grafts were going to be taken on the back of my head and also where I wanted the hair to be added to. This was the most painful bit, it but didn’t last that long.
My head was then numb and the Dr made incisions in the front of my head, I was then turned around and the nurses began to take the grafts from the back of my head. This wasn’t painful but felt slightly strange if anything. After this was finished, I was turned around again and the grafts were placed into the incisions that were previously made.
The whole thing took about 5 hours and due to the medication, I felt like I’d been in and out of sleep a lot. It seemed a lot shorter in time.
I was given some food and drink to eat after and then my rep spoke to me about the medication I’d need to take over the next week, and the aftercare over the next while.
I was then free to go to back to the hotel a few minutes away, and I was asked to come back the next morning at 9 to be shown how to wash the areas.
It was uncomfortable to sleep that night as I had to remain on my back but it was a small price to pay for such a procedure.
After the nurses washed my head the next day, I was allowed to leave and I was picked up and taken to the airport.
I would definitely recommend this process and Get Hair. They were very organised, reliable and i’m sure I will be happy with the results.
I really enjoyed my experience with GetHair. Their customer service was second to none, and before the operation their customer service made sure to put me at ease and remind me of all the necessary steps I needed to take before the operation.
The experience itself was very straightforward and I was immediately put at ease when I arrived in Turkey. I was collected at the airport and taken straight to the hotel which was perfect for the stay. I received a text from my patient coordinator to tell me what time I’d be collected in the morning. (they collect you themselves and bring you to the hospital so they treat you very well.)
The hospital was extremely clean and I couldn’t fault it. I met the surgeon and his calm demeanor let me know I had nothing to worry about.
For the surgery itself, I felt no pain. Getting the anesthetic before the surgery was uncomfortable but not painful. It’s important to remember to wear comfortable clothes for the surgery because it is quite long so prepare yourself for that.
Following the surgery I was brought back to my hotel. I returned to the hospital the day after for my first wash and instructions on post op care. They then bring you back to the airport to fly home.
What was really impressive to me was the sense that GetHair put me, as a patient, first. There was no pressure to make any decisions and they looked after me from day 1. Immediately following the surgery I got an email to ask how everything went and to remind me of post care instructions.
I couldn’t recommend GetHair anymore and I’m really excited to see my result!
Overall very happy and would definitely recommend to friends. This applies to the treatment in Turkey and the contacts in London...
