Price Comparison for Hair Transplant: Turkey vs Ireland Image
Hair transplantations are increasing in popularity in Ireland with numerous celebrities admitting to having had such surgeries in order to improve their looks and self-confidence.

There are some clinics in Ireland which deliver these procedures as a modality of compensating the decreasing number of Irish patients who undergo cosmetic surgeries. For most of people though, the costs of hair transplantation procedures are far too high. Economic problems are leading Irish patients to look elsewhere for this type of operations, and Turkey is a prime destination for those looking to enhance their looks by undertaking hair transplant procedures, 

Hair transplant cost in Turkey and Ireland 

As a price comparison between Turkey and Ireland, prices for hair transplant in Ireland range from EU 3.95 per follicular unit extraction graft to EU 10 per FUE graft in Irish clinics. People can have similar hair transplant procedures done in Turkey for only EU 1.5 per graft for the FUE method. Most patients undertake a hair transplant procedure in Turkey that takes only one day, resulting in minimal scars, surgeons here being able to transplant up to 2,800 FUE grafts per day. This implies only a two days visit to Istanbul in order to have the treatment undertaken. 
The procedure in unnoticeable after seven to ten days, and in maximum nine to twelve months, the new transplanted hair will be fully regrown. For an average patient suffering from baldness necessitating 2,500 FUE grafts the price for hair transplant in Ireland ranges from EU 9,875 to EU 25,000, while in Turkey a similar procedure would cost only around EU 3,750. 

Hair transplant methods and their prices

Simply put, there are two major techniques for hair transplantation. One of them is the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) method and the other is the Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT). FUT uses strips of hair harvested from the harrier zones of the head which are transplanted onto the bald areas. In FUE, individual hair follicles are extracted and then implanted on the bald areas of the scalp. Because of the medical expertise necessary in order to carry out the FUE method and the bigger number of sessions necessary to obtain the desired number of hair follicles transplanted, the FUE procedure is more expensive compared to FUT hair transplant

The cost of the hair transplant is an important aspect when making the decision to undergo a hair transplant. Rest assured, even though the hair transplant cost in Turkey is much lower than in Ireland, the quality of the medical care and services, as well as the final results, are a top priority in our clinic and can compare to those of any hair transplant clinic in Ireland or elsewhere in Europe.
