Home/ Brand Stories / Hair Transplant Turkey – Permanent Hair Loss Treatments at Affordable Prices

Hair loss is a completely natural process that occurs daily. On average, men and women can lose 100 hairs daily – often even more, depending on the season, weather, and stress levels. However, with healthy hair loss, all the hairs that fall out start to grow back pretty quickly. Problems arise when there’s no new hair growth. That’s when you experience excessive thinning and balding.

The solution? Hair transplants.

Unfortunately, genetic balding cannot be reversed or cured. It can only be treated through surgery. So if you want to restore your hair to its former glory, the only thing you can do is schedule a hair transplant with a reputable clinic. And if you want to make the treatment more affordable, the only thing you can do is schedule a hair transplant in Turkey.

Find out what made Turkey a global hub for hair transplants and learn what you can expect when you travel to Turkey to visit hair clinics.

Treating hair loss at Turkish clinics

Turkey isn’t just one of the most popular destinations for worldwide travelers. It’s one of the most popular destinations for medical tourists.

The country boasts outstanding education and healthcare systems, producing highly-trained medical staff that undergoes years of training to deliver the utmost care and professionalism to patients.

Every employee in the healthcare sector needs to adhere to strict rules and regulations, meet stringent medical licensing requirements, and display the utmost mastery of their field. Hence, Turkey established quite a reputation as the top medical tourism destination.

However, that doesn’t mean you should have your hair transplant with any random hair transplant clinic in Turkey you come across. If you want to enjoy natural-looking results with the perfect hairline and the highest hair density, you’ll need to find a clinic with experience, such as the Vera Clinic in Istanbul.

Established in 2013, Vera Clinic has become a leader in the field of hair restoration. It has a team of four expert hair transplantation surgeons with years of experience under the belt, Dr. Gökhan Vayni̇, Dr. Saim Nedim Ecevit, Dr. Oğuzhan Kale, and Dr. Didem Karadi̇lek.

Together, they’ve helped over 25,000 patients restore their natural hair appearance after a single surgery. Before the procedure, each surgeon completes a thorough hair analysis on the patient to customize the surgery to their needs and deliver superior results.

The clinic is devoted to ensuring the greatest patient satisfaction and adheres to the highest quality standards.

Hair transplant cost – how much you can expect to pay

Having hair transplant procedures at clinics such as Vera might initially strike you as unaffordable. The clinic hires only the top surgeons, has top-of-the-like tools and equipment, and boasts excellent results – it’s only natural that its costs would reflect that.

However, that’s not quite the case, especially when compared to the hair transplant cost in countries such as the US.

Hair loss treatments in the US with all the required postoperative medication and care can cost upwards of $15,000. With no insurance provider that would offer coverage for such procedures, every penny would have to go straight out of your pocket.

The same procedure done by Turkish clinics can cost as little as $3,000 to $5,000.

Such a significant price difference is solely due to the contrast in the costs of living paired with currency devaluation.

The costs of living in Turkey are about 76% lower than in the US, meaning that everything from housing to education, gas, groceries, and medical services is around 76% cheaper in Turkey than it is in the US. Therefore, even though hair transplants would be considered expensive for anyone living and working in Turkey, they are accessible to medical tourists from high-cost countries.

Hair transplant packages for medical tourists

Since medical tourism can be tricky, Turkish clinics like the Vera Clinic offer all-inclusive hair transplant packages. When booking your surgery, included in your transplant package expenses will be:

● Free consultation;

● Surgery with the maximum number of hair follicles transplanted;

● Medication;

● Accommodation;

● Transport between airport, hotel, and clinic.

There are no hidden costs or unexpected surprises. You’ll only have to cover the additional costs of your airfare, while everything else is included in your hair transplant package.

Hair loss treatments available at Turkish clinics

Each hair transplant clinic has its unique area of expertise. Vera Clinic, for instance, offers several different treatments for hair loss, focusing primarily on FUE hair transplant and DHI hair transplant surgery.

FUE, or follicular unit extraction, and DHI, or direct hair implantation, include treating hair loss by extracting follicles from the donor area and inserting them into the balding (or recipient) area.

With the FUE, the surgeon has to make small incisions in the recipient area before they can insert transplanted follicles one by one. With the DHI, they insert individual follicles into a hollow needle first and then into the scalp, thus eliminating the need for prior incisions and minimizing damage to the surrounding tissue.

As a general rule of thumb, the FUE technique covers larger recipient areas, while the DHI increases hair density in a smaller recipient area.

While hair transplants are most commonly performed on the head, they can be done on the beard, eyebrows, and even mustaches and sideburns.

The before-and-after results

At Vera Clinic, each surgery is customized to suit each patient’s needs. After all, not everyone has the same hair quality, density, and hairline, so every patient needs a unique approach.

However, even though the procedure is customized, you shouldn’t expect to see the results immediately.

The surgery is minimally invasive, and you can get back to your normal life within a couple of days. But it will take at least three to six months to start noticing the first signs of hair growth. After that, it will take an additional six to twelve months for the full results to become fully visible.

To get familiarized with what you can expect post-surgery, you can take a look at the clinic’s before-and-after pictures.

Final thoughts

Though hair transplant surgery isn’t dangerous, you can risk subpar results by scheduling your treatment with an inexperienced doctor. It’s always in your best interest to find a reputable clinic like the Vera Clinic and have your surgery performed by experienced doctors.

Surgeons at Vera Clinic can ensure picture-perfect results at affordable prices, so don’t be afraid to schedule your hair loss treatment and restore your hair to its full former glory.
