The surgery was conducted on March 2, 2008 and for the moment only two months and three days passed so there is no great result visible yet, but insignificant growth is already observed. I think it is necessary to wait for 3–4 months at least. Three weeks later I started to use Minoxidil 2% and as soon as it will come to an end, I will start using 5%.
On numerous requests of interested ones, and also on the special invitation of the chief PR manager of Talizi clinic, knocking out the door, Maxim Rudich enters with a big bag of his photos. Appreciate, but please, be great hearted.

So busy at work, but anyway I attach my photos – 5 months after the surgery:
What can I say; I’m waiting for a further progress, only 6 month passed.
Don’t count your chickens before they are hatched. So I will wait for March of the next year.
Hi everyone! It is time to appear and to report about my results.
7 month after:
By the way I still have pimples on my head that testifies that new hairs are carving their way to the top.
The seam is almost resolved.
9 month after the surgery in Talizi. Photos are made in Talizi prior the second surgery.
Happy new year everyone! Well, New Year's salutes, toasts, congratulations are behind. I reached a computer and decided to report about Talizi work once again. On December 20, 2008 I went on the second session of “defragmentation” of my scalp, I planned to transplant 4500 grafts, but the doctor recommended me only 3500 grafts. The clinic should be interested in earning as much as possible, but it shouldn't tradeoff in quality of the performed surgery. I think, this once again testifies to honesty and decency of Talizi clinic staff in attitude towards their patients. As a result it turned out 700–800 grafts by FUE method, the other 2800 grafts were taken by the Strip method. I paid 4000 euros for everything though by calculations I had to give 4400 euros, so 400 euros are some kind of New Year's gift from the director of Talizi clinic, Akaki Tsilosani, for what I am very grateful.
This time my flight passed without problems and delays, everything was done in 3 days. I arrived on Sunday morning, surgery was appointed on Monday, and on Sunday we rode whole day long doing shopping with Alik. On Monday I saw the new building of the clinic and everything inside. The clinic is equipped state-of-the-art, in a lobby there is a beautiful aquarium, with beautiful small fishes, and a girl who meets you is just irresistible. In a word, beauty and purity! Clinic is equipped with video cameras, there are two surgical rooms, and even walls of clinic are enlightened with special mascots.
On December 22 at 9:30 am I was already in the clinic, they met me; video cameras recorded our meeting (the video operator promised to send a copy to my email). I am waiting.
After friendly embraces we moved in a dining room, we drank a cognac for a meeting, the next step was hairdressing salon, they cut and shaved my hair very quickly, feels like they are great at this. I felt a little sorry about my hair on the floor; I waited for them to grow during nearly 10 months! As soon as they finished, Zaza entered the room (he just came back from a business trip to France), it is a pity he didn't find me "hairy”. While they injected an anesthetic to me, Zaza was telling girls about France, how he spent time in Paris. Girls listened to him with mouth agape (probably they envied him, Paris is a dream of all women).
Well let’s move on. So, having received my dose of anesthetic, I laid down and the procedure of grafts harvesting began by the FUE method. It lasted a couple of hours, maybe more, I didn't watch time, and I slumbered periodically. Anesthetic did the part. Then time for the Strip method came. The doctor was grateful that I stretched my scalp so good by making massages. The seam turned out simply lovely sight. Tension on my nape almost wasn't felt. After a small break, we proceeded by placing the grafts. I stayed in surgical chair till 19:00 without interruption. By the evening I didn’t want just to eat, I wanted to “gobble”! By the end of the surgery head was so big! Cap was hardly pulled on my head’s tip, in the hotel a "TADPOLE" looked at me from a mirror. I asked the hotel hostess to serve everything and in a big amount for supper. I had a wonderful supper. I didn't sleep almost the whole night, I watched TV (probably I slept in a chair a little).
The next morning I went to the clinic for a survey, they removed a bandage; everything was ok. During the daytime we drove the city with Zaza by his BMW, in the evening we went to the restaurant, flowers salad was very pleasant. At night Alik took me to the airport and I departed home. That's all. Now I have to wait for grafts to sprout out. Result. 8133 grafts for two sessions. Don't consider this manuscript to be an advertisement. I just share my impressions and own experience, I hope it will be useful for someone.
Photos are attached
One month after the second surgery (3500 grafts)
Time goes slowly. Let it sprout out faster! I have dreams on night, and I am hairy in that dreams, hairy in an appropriate place!
Here I found my old photos, before transplantation, I’m so bald!!!!!!!
9 months and 20 days separate my hair transplant surgeries. I’ve read that one can repeat hair transplant surgery in 9-10 months, and if you plan to transplant in neighboring zone, you can do it in 6 months. So I decided to conduct it a bit earlier, so, by summer my hair will grow a little longer.
Here I’ve bought a comb. Now I already have something to brush, hope it will be better in future. 4 months after the second session have passed.
Everything is ok on my head: hairs sprout out, get longer, thicker, there is only one trouble, I’m a perfectionist, I want it all to be ideal, as it was when I was 18, well, at least, when I was 25. I will attach photos later. Good luck everyone!
Hi everyone! Here is another photo report…
11 months passed since my second surgery, see the result.
If you have questions, feel free to write me! Best regards, Maxim.
Hello everyone! I decided to post more photos in New Year eve.

Walking in the park, the next day after the surgery.
Everything is in your hands! Go forward!
Doing all right, excellent I can say! Its spring time, I have a lot of work, and absolutely don’t have a spare time, even to check my mailbox. If my wife didn’t tell me that the letter came, I wouldn't know that. Temporarily, I don’t have new photos, my spouse sold camera, as soon as we will buy a new one, and I will shower on a forum. By the way I agitated Ramazan from the city of Aktau to visit Talizi; he called me very often, asked for advice, and now, after the surgery he consults with me. Many thanks to the whole Talizi staff. Faithfully, your Maxim.
Hello everyone! Excuse me for my long absence! I’m finally ready to write my next report on the work done by Talizi hair transplant center. One year and 9 months passed since my third hair transplant. During the first surgery it was transplanted 4600 grafts, 3500 grafts during the second, and 2500 grafts during the third. Everything passed well, even perfectly, hair grew. Shortly: "I’ve solved my problem with hair", my interests changed. Now I’m fond of spearfishing, I dedicated all my free time to this hobby. I spend plenty of time online, but already on spearfishing. As a parting word to future patients I will tell this, don’t be afraid to go (to fly, to float) to Georgia, Talizi is the only clinic really approached to the people, I mean price/quality ratio, and choose only that clinics which specialize on hair only. Be aware of clinics and doctors who do everything, if you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask your doctor, you have to learn as much as possible about the forthcoming surgery and about the postsurgical period because this is your health and your head. Remember doctor can recommend you a quantity of grafts, but a decision is yours, if you decided on surgery, go FORWARD, if there are any doubts, study a question thoroughly, try to communicate to those patients who already passed through it, and don't listen to those who is engaged in phrase-mongering (ARGUES ON THAT THROUGH WHAT DIDN'T PASS).
I want to thank one more time all workers of Talizi clinic for their help, understanding, and I wish you all the best!
Sincerely yours, Maxim
