Price Comparison for Hair Transplant: Turkey vs. Germany Image
Hair loss is a condition which affects men, as well as women regardless of age or country of origin. It can be due to a wide number of reasons, such as hormonal disorders, stress, genetic factors or hyperthyroidism. There are more and more patients who are looking for a permanent solution for this issue, mainly because of the developed methods which are nowadays able to render natural-looking results and the low costs of hair transplants which can now be undertaken in Turkey. Another European country in which a hair transplant can be realized with real chances of success is Germany. However, the price is often one of the most important aspect patients consider when seeking for a country to undergo a hair transplant.

Below, we have made a comparison between the price of a hair transplant in Turkey and Germany in order to help patients make an informed decision.

In our hair transplant clinic in Turkey, you can benefit from hair transplant operations based on the latest technology and at very affordable costs.

Lower costs of hair transplants in Turkey vs. Germany

The costs of hair transplants in Germany are extremely high. Even though such procedures vary in costs in both countries, depending on each patient’s individual characteristics, the desired results and the hair transplant method which is being used, prices in Turkey still prove to win the race against Germany. 

To prove our point, in Germany, a hair transplant procedure can cost between EU 2,500 to EU 8,500 for an increased level of baldness which requires more grafts to be transplanted. A similar procedure in Turkey, however, costs between EU 1,700 to  EU 2,900 for the highest amount of grafts which need to be implanted, allowing German patients to save up to EU 5,600, which represents a saving of more than 60% on their hard-earned money.  Besides the low prices, the experienced Turkey hair transplant specialists and the modern equipment used for these types of surgeries are also strong reasons why both foreign and local patients choose Turkey.

World-class hair restoration treatments in Turkey vs. Germany

In the last few years, hair restoration treatments have become an important branch of the cosmetic surgery and Turkey was ahead of many countries thanks to its developed tourism industry which created a whole new sector, that of medical tourism. Germany, on the other hand, has some of the most important medical centers in Europe. However, the hair transplant sector is not among the most developed branches of medicine in Germany. This is why a hair restoration surgery in Germany is a few times more expensive than a hair transplant in Turkey.

Here are some of the treatments you can benefit from in our hair transplant clinic in Istanbul:
  1. mesotherapy which is used to stimulate hair growth, and which is available for both male and female patients;
  2. PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma therapy which is one of the most innovative hair loss treatments;
  3. scalp micropigmentation, if a hair transplant is not the first option of a patient;
  4. low-level laser therapy which is a method used to stimulate hair growth for all types of patients;
  5. facial hair transplants, such as beard and mustache, eyebrows and eyelash transplants;
  6. repair hair transplants for patients who suffer from various conditions are also available.

The same procedures are available in Germany, however, at much higher prices compared to Turkey.

If you have any questions related to the cost of a hair transplant in Turkey, our surgeons are at your disposal with detailed information.

FUE and FUT hair transplants in Turkey and Germany

Without a doubt, Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) and Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) are the most popular hair transplant procedures available in clinics all over the world. The same methods are used by our hair transplant doctors in Istanbul, as well as by medical teams in Germany. The difference, however, resides once more in the cost of each of the procedure, with Turkey beating Germany.

FUE is usually cheaper than FUT, however, in Turkey, this difference is barely noticeable. Compared to Turkey, the costs of FUE and FUT procedures in Germany are higher because of the lower number of specialists.

The cost of a hair transplant does not reside in the price of the operation alone, as patients must also consider the transportation and accommodation, which in Germany are considerably higher than in Turkey.

Choosing the best hair transplant method

Many patients interested in having hair transplants will usually read about the available procedures and decide for the one they want based on its cost. However, what future patients don’t take into account is that the hair restoration procedure is decided together with the surgeon after an initial evaluation of the condition of the patient and only then the appropriate method is selected.

If you need more information on the hair transplant methods available in our clinic in Istanbul, our doctors can offer details and can explain how the best-suited procedure is chosen.
