Here are some of the most common questions that arise when it comes to hair transplantation in Turkey.
1. What is hair transplantation in Turkey?
Hair transplantation means that the hair follicles from the back of the head are transplanted to the bald areas of the scalp, using different hair restoration methods such as FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) or FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction). This operation has permanent results because the hair follicles from the back of the head are generically built to resist baldness, no matter where they are implanted.
2. What is the cost of hair transplantation in Turkey?
According to the Washington Post, the average cost of hair transplant surgeries in Turkey range from USD 1,700 and USD 2,000, while the same surgery in UK or the US could be as expensive as USD 25,000. There is an extremely large number of medical tourists who come into this country because of the low costs for large surgeries, especially hair transplantations, making Turkey a top center for international patients looking for affordable cosmetic beauty treatments. Our clinic in Turkey practices the same extremely advantageous costs for hair transplant procedures. If you are interested in these procedures, our hair transplant specialists can offer you a complete price list.
3. Can a hair transplantation procedure in Turkey render natural looks?
When effectuated by experienced surgeons who have the right skills and employ the correct techniques, hair transplantation in Turkey can have results that look extremely natural, without anybody noticing that you had a hair restoration procedure done.
4. Is hair transplant a permanent solution?
Hair transplant in Turkey has permanent results because the hair follicles that are transplanted from the back of the scalp are genetically built to resist baldness.
5. How long does a hair restoration operation in Turkey last?
Usually, between 1,500 and 5,000 grafts are transplanted during a hair restoration surgery, which could take an entire day for each patient, depending on which hair transplant method is being used. This means that usually the patient comes in the morning and he or she has the operation completed by the end of the afternoon.
6. How much time does it take to recover?
With the modern micro hair transplant techniques in Turkey, the incisions are extremely small and less invasive than procedures in the past. This means a smaller recovery period, with most people feeling fine in a day or two after the procedure, although a certain numbness and mild discomfort could be experienced in the following days as well.
