2500 graft transplant at HDC Cyprus (Hair Transplant)

Hi guys,

after being an active member on this forum for over 7 years now, I finally decided to do something against my hair loss and went through with a transplant.

I stopped holding out hope on having a viable hair multiplication or cell based treatment any time soon as there have simply been too many disappointments with little hope on the horizon for the near future, which is why I started doing research on hair transplant clinics and singled out a couple of clinics which have shown very consistent results for years with little or no negative feedback.

Taking all variables into account I decided get in touch with the HDC clinic in Cyprus via email to discuss my expectations. We agreed on a 2-day transplant which took place on 12. - 13. Dec 2013.

HDC took care of the flight arrangements and picked me up from the airport. I was brought to one of their apartments which was located directly across of the clinic which is extremely convenient when having to come in for daily checkups and hair washes post-op.

On the day of the surgery a blood test was first taken and we began to discuss the procedure and my expectations. Despite the fact that I have quite some hair loss in the crown area as well as in the frontal area I decided to only focus on the frontal area for my first procedure.

After taking the advice of the doctors and the technical staff into consideration, I decided on a hair line which was drawn on my forehead. The number of FUs required to fill in the frontal half of my scalp was estimated to be something between 2500 and 3000 grafts.

The procedure took place over two days.

Also, at this point I would really like to thank the HDC staff for their dedication in ensuring that I get the best possible results and experience at the clinic.
I spent several hours chatting with the technical staff during graft extraction and placement and really felt that they were sincerely devoted to providing me with the best possible experience and results.

The technical staff involved in my procedure all looked back on several years (5 - 10 years) of experience in hair transplantation and appeared to do their work with a lot of devotion and professionalism. At no point did I feel that the clinic was trying to sell me anything that was not in my interest or beyond realistic expectations. I literally do not see how the staff could have possibly done a better job.

Unfortunately however, although the operation was quite pain-free, I did have quite a bit of pain in the donor area even at 1 week post-op. But I was able to get relief with the help of over the counter painkillers (ibuprofen and paracetamol), luckily I am now at day 12 and the pain has largely subsided already. Nevertheless, I will keep you updated.


day of the procedure:

wishing you a merry X-mas,
