Services offered by our hair transplant clinic in Turkey
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE): it is a modern hair transplant technique through which our clients can regain their natural look, without leaving any scars and with a highly successful rate. This procedure consists of harvesting approximately 4,000 separate follicular units from the posterior scalp and transplanting every single one of them with care where necessary, in accordance with each person’s density and pattern. The main advantages of opting for such a procedure in this country are the high-quality medical services offered here and the affordable hair transplant costs in Turkey.
The FUE technique offers natural results and an important advantage is that is can be used to transplant hair to a number of different areas. Our Turkey hair transplant experts list the situations in which this procedure can be successfully implemented:
• Beard & Moustache Transplants: we provide customized facial hair solutions. At our clinic, we can either execute a beard or mustache operation on extremely small areas of the skin or we can assist you with a denser facial hair transplant. We generally use the FUE method for facial hair transplants, and the results are permanent and natural-looking.
• Eyebrow Transplants: our hair transplant physicians in Turkey utilize the FUE method in order to effectuate this type of hair restoration. Follicular units are extracted from the scalp and then transplanted on the eyebrow area. These procedures are extremely artistic, the eyebrow being shaped individually based on the patient’s unique facial type and features; • Eyelash Hair Transplants: these are more recent procedures during which the eyelid lashes are permanently restored. The hairs are transplanted on the eyelids after being generally harvested from the scalp. Eyelash hair transplants render a completely natural result since the hairs are transplanted one by one; • Ethnic Hair Transplants: our experienced doctors utilize hair restoration techniques that are tailored to meet our patient’s specific needs depending on their ethnical background. These methods are able to render extremely natural-looking, successful and safe outcomes, for patients who have specific characteristics based on their ethnicity. The main ethnical groups are comprised of the African American, Indian, Hispanic, Asian, etc.; • Scar repair: The FUE technique is applied in order to conceal large scars resulted from old strip procedures or more surgeries. The large scars will be minimized or concealed, so that the patient is able to wear his or her hair shorter than before. This surgery requires harvesting hairs from the scalp or body and then transplanting them on the scarred area;
• Hair Mesotherapy: it is a method that encourages the growth of your natural hair.
• Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy: it is an advanced procedure for hair regeneration after the hair transplant. It is safe, non-surgical and it is used successfully to relieve pain and fasten the healing process. Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is comprised of many growing elements that stimulate the growth of the hair follicles after a transplant. • Hair Loss Treatments: we provide treatments for hair loss and hair shaft problems, as well as scalp disorders.

Every single hair transplant procedure is unique and has to be customized to the individual needs of each patient. The patient’s personal wishes are the main aspects taken into consideration for our consultation. The personal consultation is the time when the surgeon, together with the client, decide how many grafts will be needed in order to achieve the desired outcome. Therefore, the costs ofhair transplant procedures in Turkey depend largely on the number of grafts used and the type of procedure chosen, be it FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) or FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction).
How much is a hair transplant in Turkey?
The most important aspect to consider in a hair transplant is the number of grafts required. Given the unique pattern of each individual, during the consult, the surgeon will be able to asses the number of grafts required.
As an average price of a hair transplant operation in Turkey starts at 2,000 EUR for a minimum of 1, 500 grafts. However, it is important to understand that a hair transplant will usually require more than 2,000 grafts. As for the highest number of grafts that can be implanted – it can reach out to over 6,000 grafts.
One of the most important costs associated with the hair transplant operation in Turkey refers to the method. The Follicular Unit Extraction and the Follicular Unit Transplantation are two of the most modern and employed technologies in our clinic in Turkey. These are also the most sought by patients and have relatively low costs compared to the results. The patient will decide together with the surgeon on the best approach.
Apart from the hair restoration procedure costs, other costs should also be included. Among these, the travel costs, if the patient comes from another country.
The travel expenses will depend on the country the patient comes from, however, it is good to know that Turkey has a great geographical location and it is easy to reach from, basically, every corner of the world, no matter if you come from Europe, Asia or even North or South America.
The accommodation expenses will then need to be considered. Patients can rest assured that Turkey is one of the most famous tourist destinations in the world precisely for the low accommodation prices while having some of the best conditions.
We recommend planning your hair transplant trip in advance so that you can benefit from lower prices or even flight or accommodation deals, where applicable.

As previously stated, the prices of FUE hair transplant procedures are general, as they greatly depend on the complexity of the surgery, the number of grafts that are used and the hair transplant method utilized.
The FUE and theFUT methods have different prices, the higher price being that of the FUE technique because this one is more complex and the patient may need several days of treatment, depending on his needs.
Factors that can influence the cost of a hair transplant in Turkey
As mentioned above, the initial consult is the first pre-operatory stage in hair transplant because during this consultation, the surgeon can gather information about the patient’s condition, the medical history, how severe the hair loss is, the procedure that will be used to complete the hair transplant and the estimative number of grafts needed. All these factors will lead to an estimation of the hair transplant cost in our clinic in Istanbul.
We say estimation because the final cost will be conveyed to the patient after the surgery. However, one does not need to worry because the differences are not that big between the estimation and the final cost of the procedure.
When it comes to the factors that can influence the final price of the hair transplant, it is worth taking into account various aspects. Among these, how severe the condition of the patient is or the area on which the transplant will take place. We have the cost estimator in which future patients can introduce various data and find out the approximative cost of the hair transplant.
Then, the procedure to be used on the patient is of high importance. The two most important and popular techniques used in a hair transplant in our clinic in Istanbul are the Follicular Unit Extraction – FUE – and the Follicular Unit Transplantation – FUT. The cost of a hair transplant through these methods are a little bit lower in favor of the FUT procedure.
According to a research published by the US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health, there are several differences between the FUE and FUT methods. The study revealed that the time in which the doctor operates on the patient is lower during the FUT procedure (10 to 30%) compared to the 80-90% in the case of the FUE method, which will have a direct impact on the cost of the hair transplant.
Also, stitching is required in the case of FUT hair transplant compared to the FUE procedure. In terms of healing, the donor area will heal in around 7 days in the case of the FUE hair transplant compared to the 2 to 3 weeks in the case of a procedure involving the FUT method. The healing of the recipient area, however, can take up to 14 days in the case of both procedures. Another similarity between the FUE and FUT procedures is that they both offer the same natural-looking results.
If you have any preference in terms of the procedure to be employed by our hair transplant surgeons in Turkey, we encourage you to talk to us and let us know your options. In case the procedure you want does not suit your needs, our surgeons will take you through other methods which are more appropriate.
Other important factors that are usually not considered by our patients are those related to transportation and accommodation. While most of our packages include these costs too, some patients prefer to come on their own or to have the hair transplant as part of a touristic package. This is why we want to draw the attention of patients to carefully consider these costs when booking a trip for a hair transplant in Turkey.
In our hair transplant clinic in Istanbul, we have services that suit every patient’s needs and financial resources. Moreover, we can personalize each package in accordance with the patient’s preferences.
In case you want to know how much is a hair transplant in Turkey, our team invites you to watch a short video on the general costs associated with hair transplants in Turkey:
How the hair transplant cost in Turkey is calculated
The FUE and the FUT method are priced differently because the first one is more complex.
Hair loss grade
The higher the hair loss grade, the more coverage will be needed and thus the overall costs will grow.
Density to be achieved
A fuller hair, as opposed to a simple camouflage of the bald spots, will imply a different number of grafts and will cost more.
Number of grafts
From 1000 grafts to 2000 and even 3000 grafts, this is the primary factor that determines the costs of the surgery and can be estimated after an initial consultation.
The doctor performing the procedure
The team is an experienced one, however, we work with different doctors and those with a higher level of experience will charge more for a standard procedure.
The extra medical costs
This does not include the standard medication but rather the special solutions that are used to preserve the collected hair follicles.
Our hospitals are modern and fully equipped, however, the costs associated with the location will vary from one hospital to another and will depend on the size of the operating room.
Other costs associated with a hair transplant in Turkey
Apart from the actual costs of the hair restoration procedure, a patient will also need to consider additional costs which usually the post-operatory procedures. Even if these are not imposed, they are often recommendations of our surgeons. Also, these depend on the patient’s state after the operation, the procedure used and even the number of grafts and the area where the transplant was made.
Among these, the medication used during the recovery period is essential, this is why our surgeons will most likely recommend the patient-specific ointments and creams for the transplanted grafts. It is also common for doctors to recommend antibiotics in order to prevent infections. It is important to know that patients can develop infections, which is why taking all the medicines prescribed by the doctor is essential, otherwise, the effect of the hair transplant could not be the one expected.
Those who decide to undertake a hair transplant in Turkey should also consider other facts, such as the hair transplant could require alternative treatments, such as mesotherapyor even micro-pigmentation in order to obtain natural-looking results. These are two of the most common procedures completed by our hair transplant doctors in Istanbul.
In certain cases, medication and special ointments, shampoo and products are recommended, therefore patients should also include these on their list with costs associated with a hair transplant.
In certain cases, the patient is also prescribed various types of painkillers. These can also be bought without any prescription; however, it is best to consult a doctor before taking any.
What are the cost differences between FUE and FUT in Turkey?
Even if there are other procedures which can be employed, the FUE and FUT methods are the most renowned and safest ones at a worldwide level which is why we also use them in our clinic in Istanbul. The cost of a hair transplant in Turkey will be impacted the most by the procedure used and the number of grafts required. While the average cost of a hair transplant through the FUE method can be of 2,500 euros, that of a transplant using the FUT technology can be a few hundred euros cheaper. The cost difference is not very important though when considering the lifetime benefits.
Other types of hair transplant operations in Turkey
The number of patients requesting for other types of hair transplant operations in our clinic in Istanbul has increased, most of them being male patients asking for beard and mustache transplants. The costs of such procedures, however, are significantly lower than those of a usual hair transplant in Turkey.
Our surgeons can also perform eyelash and eyebrows hair transplant for patients in such needs at very competitive rates.

Why are the prices for hair transplant so low in Turkey?
Turkey is the leading country worldwide in terms of hair transplant surgeries. With approximately 5000 patients/month coming to Turkey in order to get hair transplants, it is no wonder that this industry is worth about $1 billion to the country’s economy. Foreigners are coming to Turkey for affordable hair transplant costs but also for its experienced surgeons and modern procedures and equipment. So why are the hair transplant prices so affordable in Turkey?
The hair transplant procedure prices in Western European countries and the U.S. are influenced by administrative prices, insurance contracts and mostly labor costs. According to a recent report by the World Health Organization, more than 70% of the medical costs are driven up by labor. Here is the main reason why the expenses for a hair transplant in Turkey are much lower than in other more developed countries.
At our clinic in Turkey, we provide complete treatment plans with lifelong natural results for patients who have been suffering from the effects of hair loss for too long. The safety of the procedure is ensured by the use of modern equipment that allows for the sampling of follicles with a high-density ratio. Success is our primary concern, our surgeons having a proven track record of successful hair transplants. The quality of the services does not mean that our prices are high. On the contrary, we offer high-quality services to patients around the world, at more affordable prices compared to many countries in the EU, the United States or the Middle East.
Why choose Turkey for a hair transplant operation?
Turkey is one of the most spectacular countries in Europe from a touristic point of view, therefore a hair transplant procedure can be a great opportunity of exploring some of the most appreciated historic sites of this country, especially when considering that a hair transplant is usually a mild and minimally invasive procedure. The specialized doctors, the modern techniques, the high-quality standards, the cheap accommodation costs have transformed Turkey into one of the top hair transplant destinations in the world.
At first, it was plastic surgery that attracted patients to Turkey; later on, more and more branches of medical tourism developed, and now, Turkey is one of the most important countries on the map of hair transplant surgeries in the world.
Turkey is known for the medical tourism industry, therefore foreign patients can purchase such packages which can include the stay at a hotel and the hair transplant operation followed by a well-deserved vacation, all at the costs which could only imply the hair transplant procedure or even less in other countries. Lower prices are not the equivalent of low quality. In fact, the contrary applies to Turkey. The country managed to unite a set of characteristics, referring to labor costs, the costs of starting a business and others that have been favorable for the development of the medical tourism sector in general.
We invite you to come to our clinic in Turkey and select the best hair transplant procedure for your needs.

Over the years, many surgeons have performed various trials and research on hair transplants. According to Healthline, an important medical journal, one of the most important studies related to the efficacy of hair transplants indicates that:
- 60% of men and 50% of women at a worldwide level suffer from some sort of hair loss problem during their lives;
- after a hair transplant, 10% to 80% of the implanted hair grows within 3 to 4 months;
- the PRP therapy can help hair growth after a hair transplant (75% of the transplanted hair can grow after using this therapy);
- after a hair transplant, a patient can retake his or her habitual activities and even return to work within 3 days.
Other procedures and costs in Turkey

Beard and mustache, eyelash and eyebrow transplants are just a few of the other operations which can be performed in our hair transplant clinic in Istanbul.
The prices for such procedures are relatively low because of the small number of grafts required. These can start at a few hundreds of euros or dollars, which is why they have become very popular.
The doctors at our Turkey hair transplant clinic can help you achieve the look you desire by rebuilding the form and density of the beard or mustache as well as the eyebrows. If you are wondering how much is a hair transplant in Turkey, our experts can send you a personalized offer.
A history of hair transplants
Most people believe hair transplants are new types of surgeries which have appeared in the last few years together with the development of cosmetic surgery. This is partially true because cosmetic surgery helped with the evolution of the methods like FUE and FUT, but the first hair transplants appeared way back in 1882, while modern hair transplants techniques appeared for the first time in Japan in 1939.
Ever since, many studies, research, and clinical trials have been completed by doctors and other scientists. Most of them had remarkable results. One of the most recent studies on various hair transplantation methods was completed in 2014 by two Turkish surgeons:
for this study, they used the direct hair transplant procedures (FUE) in 207 participants;
they also performed 38 direct hair implantations and 167 FUE hair transplants;
the average number of grafts implanted was 2,973, with an average operating time of 385 minutes;
the hairs were cut to 1 to 2 mm in length for both types of procedures.
The conclusion of the study was that hair transplantation is the best solution for hair loss, despite all the other treatments available on the market.
We have helped numerous patients coming from the entire world to regain their self-confidence by getting their hair back. If you wish to find out more about the hair transplant cost Turkey and about this procedure please contact our hair transplant clinic in Turkey.
