What is the hair transplant cost in Turkey vs. Belgium?
Making a basic price comparison for hair transplant between Turkey and Belgium, our research proves that an FUE hair transplant is the most expensive in Belgium.
As an average, the typical price of an FUE hair transplant in Belgium can vary depending on the location and the physician, however, it ranges at around EUR 4,197. In Turkey, however, a similar procedure costs only approximately EUR 1,700, saving you about 80% of your hard earned money.
As about the more traditional FUT (strip) hair transplant method, the prices also differ in both countries depending on the number of grafts which have to be transplanted and a number of other considerations.
However, as an average, for a FUT hair transplant requiring 2,000 to 3,000 grafts, in Belgium such a procedure would cost around EUR 5,700 to 8,550, while in Turkey only EUR 1,480. This way, by coming to Turkey for a hair transplant, you can save more than 80% of the entire costs, also.
Flight costs in Turkey and Belgium
Most patients who want to undergo hair transplant will consider other costs also, not only those of the procedure. One of the most important costs is that of the flight ticket. Compared to Belgium, Turkey offers easier access to patients from all over the world thanks to the good connections and proximity to both Central Europe and Asia. A hair transplant in Belgium, on the other hand, can imply higher costs because of the longer distance from Asia, for example. Also, there are cases in which reaching Belgium can imply a connection flight in Turkey.
If you are planning to have a hair transplant in Turkey and you are worried about the cost of the flight ticket, we have some tips for you. Among these, we strongly recommend you to:
- book your flight a few months in advance in order to obtain the cheapest ticket;
- check for promotions – both the national airline company and low-cost companies offer various promotions and coupons in certain periods;
- one of the best periods to visit Turkey is summer, however, for a hair transplant we recommend spring and autumn when the flight tickets are cheaper;
- we also recommend you first visit Turkey and Belgium before deciding for the country to have the hair transplant in;
- we recommend you book a city break for your hair transplant in Turkey if you are looking for a short stay here.
Did you know you can book a vacation in Turkey and schedule a hair transplant at the same time? This is possible because a hair transplant operation can be completed in one day, the rest of the holiday giving you the chance to visit the magnificent city of Istanbul.
Accommodation in Turkey vs. Belgium
Accommodation is definitely necessary when undergoing a hair transplant, and from this point of view, Turkey can offer significant advantages over Belgium.
