Battling genetic hair loss is no easy task. It’s virtually impossible to hide it, regardless of how many different hairstyles you may try, and there are few hair care products that can effectively prevent continued balding – none can reverse it.
While genetic hair loss cannot be reversed, it can be surgically eliminated.
Hair transplant clinics in Turkey, with their experienced surgeons, have proven themselves to be some of the top global facilities for hair restoration surgery. Learn what you can expect from them and find out whether they can effectively end your battle with hair loss once and for all.
Is it safe to have a hair transplant in Turkey?
Over the last few years, Turkey has been making significant investments in its medical tourism industry. Primarily, it has simplified the Visa application process for all international medical tourists seeking both cosmetic and healthcare treatments in the country.
Secondly, it ensures that every medical tourist who enters the country goes back home utterly satisfied.
Private and public healthcare facilities are heavily regulated and follow all EU standards for patient care. They’re well-equipped and hire some of the best-regarded medical experts in the world. All clinics and their medical staff must adhere to strict rules and regulations that ensure the patients’ utmost satisfaction and well-being.
Therefore, anyone who wants to have their hair transplant in Turkey can rest assured they’ll be in good hands.
What are hair transplant clinics in Turkey like?
Hair transplant procedures today are minimally invasive, simple, and safe. They’re painless and have a short recovery time, allowing you to return to your normal activities in a few days.
However, the results of the procedures depend entirely on the expertise of the hair transplant surgeon.
Only experienced surgeons can use sophisticated hair transplant techniques and ensure that the transplanted hair creates an appealing hairline that suits your facial features and increases your hair density without appearing unnatural.
You can find such surgeons at top-rated clinics for hair transplants in Istanbul, like the Asli Tarcan Clinic.
Established by Asli Tarcan herself, the clinic has established an impeccable reputation among domestic and international patients.
While the most in-demand procedure at the clinic is hair transplant surgery, patients can receive cosmetic treatments such as hyaluronic acid fillers, liposuction, facelift surgery, dental aesthetics, and other facial and body aesthetic treatments.
Services offered at the top clinics
Different clinics and doctors will specialize in different hair transplant methods. At Asli Tarcan Clinic, for instance, the available options for hair transplants, beard, and eyebrow transplants are Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) and Direct Hair Implantation (DHI).
With the FUE hair transplant, hair follicles are removed from the donor area, and then small incisions are made in the recipient area to create room for transplantation. It’s an advanced hair transplant surgery best reserved for those with extensive hair loss over a larger area.
With the DHI transplant, the surgeon inserts them into a specialized tool after removing hair follicles from the donor area. No incisions are made in the recipient area. Instead, the tool opens small channels in the recipient area and simultaneously inserts hair grafts.
The DHI approach is the best solution for hair loss experienced in a smaller area and can help increase hair density without issues.
Hair transplant costs in Turkey
With such advanced treatments, experienced doctors, and well-equipped facilities, it may seem as though transplant costs in Turkey would put a dent in anyone’s budget. However, that’s not the case.
Comparing the hair transplant cost in the US and in Turkey, for instance, Turkish clinics can be as much as 70% cheaper.
In the US, you could expect to pay around $15,000 for the treatment – more if you need a higher number of extracted hair follicles for transplantation. The price is for the surgery only. You must pay extra if you need any medications before, during, or after the surgery, medical shampoos and lotions for aftercare, etc.
In Turkey, the average cost of hair transplant surgery is around $3,000 to $4,000, depending on the number of grafts needed.
The price has nothing to do with the quality. In many instances, you can expect to receive the same (if not higher) quality of care at affordable Turkish clinics as you would at exclusive US clinics.
Such significant differences in pricing are simply the result of lower costs of living and currency devaluation.
Transplant packages for medical tourists
Considering how overwhelming it could be for patients to plan their trips to Turkey for their hair transplant surgery, many clinics like Asli Tarcan Clinic have developed convenient transplant packages for medical tourists.
At Asli Tarcan Clinic, the all-inclusive package consists of:
● Hair transplant surgery with the maximum number of grafts;
● 5-star hotel accommodation during your treatment;
● Transfers between the Istanbul airport, hotel, and clinic.
Everything is included in your price, so your only additional expense will be a transfer from your home to the Istanbul airport. You won’t have to worry about organizing transportation, booking the hotel, or anything in between. The clinic will ensure that you have a comfortable stay for the duration of your treatment.
Before and after the surgery
While hair transplant surgery has become more sophisticated and advanced, the results cannot be immediately visible. After all, new hair growth occurs slowly, so it can take a while before you notice the effects of your treatment.
As a general rule of thumb, it will take about 3 months to notice the first signs of new growth. The full results will be visible within 12 to 18 months.
With clinics like Asli Tarcan Clinic, you can have the utmost confidence knowing that the results will be precisely how you’d envisioned them – if not better. The doctors will monitor your recovery through online consultations, ensuring everything goes smoothly.
Hair transplant surgery in Turkey could be an excellent way to end your battle with hair loss. With experienced professionals, top-of-the-line equipment, excellent services, and affordable pricing, Turkish clinics can ensure your hair looks full and natural without any obstacles.
