What to Expect From a Hair Transplant in Turkey: Before and After

Sponsored content

Smile Hair Clinic and its dedication to high quality

Turkey’s medical tourism has been booming for a decade. People worldwide opt for hair transplantation in Turkey to restore their natural hair and say goodbye to hair loss. Are you considering the same? Learning what to expect before and after the surgery will help you make an educated decision.

Here’s one example of a top-notch hair transplant clinic in Turkey where you can get excellent results at an affordable price.

Smile Hair Clinic in Istanbul is a dream project of two perfectionists: Dr. Mehmet Erdoğan and Dr. Gökay Bilgin. They founded the clinic in 2018, employing 100+ highly-skilled and trained medical professionals and bringing years of experience to the team. They’ve performed 10,000+ successful hair transplant operations.

They focus hair transplants around their True™ Philosophy, which includes the clinic’s four core values: True Planning, True Hairline Design, True Execution, and True Innovation. It comes down to achieving optimal results with thorough preparation, utmost safety, and constant growth and development.

Dr. Erdoğan and Dr. Bilgin ingrain these values in everything they do and focus on aesthetics, ultimate patient comfort, and transformation. Those priorities have put Smile Hair Clinic into the spotlight, with BBC including it in its Healthcare Tourism Documentary series.

The Klass magazine honored it with two accolades at its Annual Quality Awards in 2022 –the Hair Clinic of the Year and the Highest Quality Hair Transplantation Clinic.

Hair transplant costs in Turkey vs. the US

Price is the crucial factor to consider before a hair transplant. The average hair transplant costs in Turkey are between $2,100 and $8,600. Smile Hair Clinic charges between $2,600 and $7,400, depending on the hair transplant method, treatment, and the number of hair grafts.

That’s significantly cheaper than in the US, where the average prices range from $11,400 and $15,900. Why would anyone want to spend a fortune on a cosmetic procedure when they could pay thousands of dollars less and still get exceptional results?

Turkey’s economy is the primary reason for affordable hair transplant prices. That means quality doesn’t take a backseat.

Smile Hair Clinic’s hair transplant packages

You’d think traveling to Turkey would add unnecessary traveling expenses, bringing them closer to the surgery’s costs in the US. Quite the contrary; you’d only need to pay for airfare.

Smile Hair Clinic offers all-inclusive packages. Here’s what you get once you schedule a hair transplant procedure:

● Online hair analysis
● Thorough hairline planning
● Blood tests before the surgery
● Hair transplant surgery with the maximum number of grafts
● Mesotherapy during and after the surgery
● Medication to take after the operation
● Aftercare hair products
● Protective headwear
● Follow-ups for a years
● 30-year warranty
● Four-star or five-star hotel accommodation
● Airport transfers
● Hotel-clinic transfers

Needle-free anesthesia and body hair transplant are the only services the packages don’t include. You must pay extra for those treatments, but they’re optional.

Hair restoration treatments and methods at Smile Hair Clinic

Sapphire Hair Clinic offers hair, beard, eyebrow, and mustache transplants. Its medical team specializes in FUE hair transplants (Follicular Unit Extraction), using cutting-edge technology to achieve natural-looking results.

The clinic’s most advanced methods include Sapphire FUE and DHI (Direct Hair Implantation).

Sapphire FUE works like the traditional FUE, except the necessary motorized surgical instrument has sapphire instead of steel blades for higher precision. The surgeon uses it to make incisions in the donor area to extract follicular units before opening micro-canals in the recipient areas to insert the hair.

The DHI method is less invasive because it doesn’t require incisions, which makes it perfect for beard transplants and higher hair density. The surgeon extracts hair follicles individually with a Choi implanter and directly implants them into the scalp.
