I came across this forum while looking for hair graft procedures.
I am in my 50's and my hair has receded quite a bit. Its not nearly as bad as my friends who have receded completely to the point where they have no hair in the middle of their heads. Anyway back to the point, I see a lot of people are brave enough to share their stories and seeing that if helps others make their decisions I would like to add another to the list. I currently live in NYC and see there are tons of plastic surgery clinics popping up everywhere around here and more than half in Queens are Koreans. I searched for quite a while due to my bulbous nose but failed to find any place that gives me a little trust in them. My close Korean friend told me that this procedure is quite mundane in Korea so I decided to look into Korean clinics and found that, Yea this wasn't a huge surgery as it seemed. I booked a trip a week later and stopped by YB Plastic Surgery and saw that everyone there are quite quaint with each other and the Surgeons really treat everyone like family there. They celebrate each each and every staffs birthdays and I thought it was really cute. I know people being a good human being does not qualify them to be great surgeons but it gave me a little assurance that at least they would care for a human life a bit more when performing these cosmetic procedures. I talked to the doctor and gave me all the answers I had in mind about the procedure and he did it with patience. He was also very thorough that the little doubt I had in my mind subsided. He booked me to do the procedure the next day and I left.
The next day I was changing into my patient garments by 10am and about 11am I was in a deep slumber and the procedure started.
The first day I saw a lot of swelling but I didn't experience a huge amount of pain the doctor warned me about before the procedure. I did not suffer and nasal dripping and difficulty breathing. It stayed this way all the way to the fourth day where the swelling basically went away. The 5th day, the doctor removed the taping and cleaned it throughly for me. I would really like to thank YB Plastic Surgery doctors and staff for taking good care of me.
