“Hair transplant is a surgical operation and it should be carried out under supervision of a dermatologist doctor, plastic surgeon or medical aesthetic expert.”— Dermatologist Dr. Oyku CELEN
ISTANBUL, NISANTASI, TURKEY, December 26, 2022/ EINPresswire.com / -- Hair transplant has been among the most preferred surgical operations of the last 10 years. As the whole world accepts, everyone, male or female, whoever wants to recover their hair and their old appearance, prefer Turkey for hair transplant. Clearly the price advantage comes first between the reasons for preference, but the number of people who want to see Istanbul’s historical, natural beauties and cultural heritage preserved for thousands of years is also quite high.
Most performed operation in the field of medical tourism is hair transplant in Turkey . Approximately 850,000 people from various countries of the world come to Turkey for hair transplantation annually. The fact that hair transplantation is the most frequently performed operation does not mean that it is a “simple” surgical operation, on the contrary, like every surgical operation, hair transplantation operation should be performed by “doctors who are experts in their fields”. Unfortunately, although many successful procedures are performed in Turkey, there has been an increase in the number of procedures that are not performed under the control of a specialist physician. That’s why this mini guide will be very helpful for those who are looking to get hair transplant in Turkey.

After deciding to have a hair transplant, in many cases the first thing to do is ask for a price. Price is the first factor that everyone considers, but basically being solely focused on price adds a new one to the “failed hair transplant” cases. Cheap does not necessarily mean that it is bad, however expensive does not mean that it is good either. For this reason before coming to Turkey for a hair transplant, the patient should make sure of the following:
- It is performed by a dermatologist doctor plastic surgeon or a medical aesthetic expert,
- It is performed in a fully fledged clinic or hospital
- Doctor’s medical team has sufficient ability and experience
- Medical facility has international certificates that show that it is being checked regularly
- A post-operative follow-up is provided

It is evident that Turkey has become the center of hair transplant thanks to the price advantage compared with the US and European countries. However, those who noticed the increasing sector of hair transplant have started to invest in hair transplant clinics without any knowledge, medical background or any experience. This is not only about hair transplant, but also happens with other surgeries and countries. For this reason one should be careful with the mistake that we previously mentioned as “cheap – low quality” or “expensive – high quality”.
In Turkey almost none of the clinics provide their quotations based on the number of grafts – instead they offer packages with fixed prices. The method used in hair transplantation, the experience of the doctor who will perform the operation, the clinic/hospital where the operation will take place, and the features such as accommodation and transfers are the details that change the price of the “package” in hair transplant.
All the “new” techniques of hair transplant have been put into the market as if they were innovations, but in reality they are all the same and are being utilised to charge more money. FUE method is the most preferred method which has provided numerous successful results in the last years. Apart from this, alternatives such as Sapphire FUE, Manual FUE, DHI, Robotic hair transplant are not “new” methods, but alternative methods to FUE. For a successful hair transplant, a clinic with a proper specialist should be preferred. Determining the method to be applied by your doctor will lead you to achieve successful results.
Generally, one session of cost of hair transplant in Turkey ranges between $1600 - $5000. If we were to make a price list of hair transplant in Turkey:
Country Hair Transplant Price Range (USD)
Turkey $1600 - $5000
USA $5000 - $15000
UK $4000 - $12000

It is very normal to seek the best doctor out there – not for a hair transplant but even for a slight pain one may suffer. Potential hair transplant candidates should do their researches very meticulously for looking best hair transplant doctor in Turkey . Because it is easy to come across with many companies that claim that they do tens of operations every day with 6000-7000 grafts or try to do sales with patient reviews.

Hair transplantation is a procedure that should be performed under the supervision of a Dermatologist, Plastic Surgeon or Medical Aesthetics Experts.
