Price Comparison for Hair Transplant: Turkey vs. Netherlands Image
Hair transplants with unnatural looking results are a thing of the past. Nowadays, with the latest medical developments in hair restoration techniques, hair transplant in Istanbul offers not only a permanent solution for hair loss sufferers but also delivers results which look as if the hair was never restored. Also, hair restoration procedures are not considered a luxury anymore, with countries like Turkey offering such treatments at a fraction of the costs patients would have to pay in their own Western European countries. This also applies to the Netherlands, which is one of the countries with the highest prices for hair transplantation

Making a price comparison for hair transplants between Turkey and the Netherlands, our research revealed several cost differences.

If you are interested in a hair transplant operation in Turkey, our surgeons invite you to our clinic in Istanbul for high-quality services at affordable rates compared to the Netherlands.

Hair transplant procedures in Turkey vs the Netherlands

When comparing the hair transplant costs in Turkey and the Netherlands, an important factor to consider is the procedure which will be used for the operation. The two most important procedures which are usually completed in both countries are the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) and the Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT). Even if the differences between the two procedures are similar, the costs will be a little different.

Turkey is usually cheaper when it comes to FUE and FUT hair transplants compared to the same procedures when completed in the Netherlands because Turkey is generally a cheaper country. However, the procedure to be employed will depend on the doctor’s recommendations and the patient’s medical history.

Here is what one needs to consider when comparing the hair transplant costs in Turkey and the Netherlands:
  1. no matter the country the patients decides on, an initial consult is part of the hair transplant protocol;
  2. only after the consult and a discussion with the surgeon, the procedure to be used will be agreed upon by the doctor and the patient;
  3. an approximate cost of the procedure will be forwarded to the patient prior to the operation, and thus help him/her decide on the country to have the surgery in;
  4. Turkey will usually be cheaper, no matter the procedure proposed by the doctors because the whole industry is cheaper here;
  5. the Netherlands has fewer clinics than Turkey, hence the higher prices for such operations.

As a recapitulation for those who have not decided on the best country to have a hair transplant in and who want to choose between the Netherlands and Turkey, we advise on talking to doctors in both countries and find out the prices. We would also like to remind you that we often have special offers in our hair transplant clinic in Istanbul.

FUT hair transplant cost in Turkey and the Netherlands

The FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) method in both Turkey and Netherlands is less expensive, as it is a more traditional hair transplant technique which implies harvesting a large tissue from the back of the head, generating thousands of follicular unit groups that grow naturally. These groups are then implanted on the bald zones. 

The average costs for a FUT hair transplant surgery in Turkey and the Netherlands are:

•    In Turkey: approximately EU 1,500;
•    In the Netherlands: around EU 3,000 for 750 grafts.

Price of FUE hair transplant in Turkey and Netherlands

The FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) hair transplant technique is the most costly in both countries because it consists of extracting by hand each follicular unit and then transplanting them on the bald areas of the scalp. This type of surgery lasts longer and requires more attention from the surgeon undertaking it, however, the results are much more natural looking and it leaves minimal scarring. 

An FUE hair transplant in Istanbul and Netherlands costs around:

•    In Turkey: from EU 1,400 to EU 2,600;
•    In the Netherlands: EU 2,200 to EU 8,800.

After seeing this price comparison for hair transplants between Turkey and Netherlands, one can easily understand why Turkey is one of the most popular destinations for such procedures, not only because of the costs but also due to the high level of medical services which are delivered in this country.
