I’m going to start by telling you what happened this last week (July 2019), and then I’ll describe my experience starting with the hair transplant procedure that took place in April 2018.
I was recently in contact with Dr. Tayfun’s assistant, Mr. Nasimi Khalilzade, to arrange a second hair transplant session in order to fix an error in my hairline made by Dr. Tayfun on the first transplant. We had previously agreed that this second session would for free, and in exchange, I would have to delete my first post here on Bald Truth Talk where I described my experience with them. Well, it turns out that after I deleted the post they said the second session wouldn’t be for free (they offered me a 30% discount, but with hotel and transportation not included, so it wasn’t a real discount, and remember this second session is to fix the mistake they made on the first one).
This is just one example of how Mr. Nasimi and Dr. Tayfun are liars, dishonest and untrustworthy people, and throughout this post, I will show you with evidence why you shouldn’t, in any case, choose them for your hair transplant.
Now let’s go back to the first procedure. I chose Dr. Tayfun mainly because his team told me he would be the one doing most of the phases of the procedure. Meaning that Dr. Tayfun would do the opening of the channels. Then he would do the first half of the extraction of the grafts (second half would be performed by an assistant doctor). Implantation would be started by Dr. Tayfun and then finalized by the nurses.
In reality, Dr. Tayfun did not even half of the opening of the channels, then the nurses did the extraction while he was in the room supervising. And then Dr. Tayfun wasn’t even in the operation room during the implantation, not even when they finalized the procedure. I saw Dr. Tayfun again only on the way out when I was at the reception.
Right when I arrived at the hotel room after the procedure, I noticed the hairline was totally asymmetric. But after hours of operation with needles being stuck to my head a thousand times, I thought I wasn’t seeing things straight. On the next day at the clinic, they all said how perfect the transplant looked, so I went along with them and stopped asking myself about the hairline.
When I got home it was clear they’ve made a big mistake. So I took some pictures and sent to another Dr. Tayfun’s consultant, Mrs. Assia. Here they are:
Well, not hard to see the hairline is very symmetric, right? Well, they kept telling me the hairline was perfect with no errors at all until they made me crazy. At that moment, I just needed them to acknowledge, but they are so dishonest that they failed to do that.
After losing my patience with them, a friend who went with me for a hair transplant at the same time continue to talk to them about my discontentment, and that’s when they told my friend that they would do a second session for free. When my friend told me about it didn’t even consider the idea because I didn’t want to have any business with them anymore. After a few months, I changed my mind, I thought they really wanted to fix their mistake, and since it would be for free, why not?
Here’s when they offered me the free session:
And here’s when they confirmed the free session but with the condition that my post should be removed.
And here’s when they changed their minds and said they would charge me for the second session. To be honest, I don’t think they changed their minds, this was their plan all along.
Dr. Tayfun is such a liar to the point that when I was in the middle of the procedure and I noticed he wasn’t the one doing the opening of the channels because I could hear his voice very far from me, I asked them “who’s taking over the procedure now?”. Then Dr. Tayfun came back near me and said “why you ask that? It’s been me the whole time”. They are liars and treat you like you’re very dumb.
I must say that the hair they transplanted looks just ok. I wouldn’t complain if they hadn’t made a mistake with the hairline and hadn’t tried to convince me that everything was normal. And I wouldn’t be writing this review if they hadn’t been so dishonest with me. Therefore, I really don’t want anyone else to have the same bad experience with them.
My friend will also write a bad review because all of their lies, and especially because his results are very bad. Most of the transplanted hair didn’t grow, and a large part of this donor area hasn’t recovered, and hair hasn’t grown again.
Please, stay away from Dr. Tayfun Oguzoglu from Medistate in Istanbul.
