Hair transplants in Turkey represent the right solution at extremely affordable costs. It is a choice many Portuguese patients are making because of the lower costs for this procedure in Turkey compared to those of Portugal

A hair transplant operation in Turkey comes with other advantages than the same procedure completed in Portugal, among these being also the use of some of the most modern techniques.

Below, our hair transplant surgeons in Istanbul explain why you should choose Turkey over Portugal when it comes to undergoing a hair transplant operation. We also invite you into our modern clinic in Turkey for an initial consult and a personalized treatment plan if you are suffering from hair loss.

Hair transplant procedures in Turkey and Portugal

One of the most important aspects which need to be considered when choosing the country in which to have a hair transplant operation is the treatment and the techniques used. Even if in both countries, Turkey and Portugal, doctors use similar techniques, Turkey is known for having made an industry out of hair transplants.

Qualified teams made of surgeons and dermatologists work together in order to ensure the success of each particular case treated. Among the procedures employed to realize successful hair transplant procedures, our doctors in Turkey use the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) and Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT) techniques, which are two of the most employed at a worldwide level. These are completed by additional treatments such as Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and mesotherapy in order to improve the results of a classic hair transplant. Also, compared to Portugal, the costs of such procedures are lower in Turkey.

In Turkey, most of the hair loss problems from which individuals, both men and women, suffer can be successfully treated at much lower costs than in other countries, no matter if in Europe or Asia. One of the most common problems is alopecia which is present in both male and female patients. In Turkey, alopecia is treated by using some of the most modern techniques, including through hair transplants.

Also, patients who have suffered various accidents which have left scars on the scalp can be treated in our clinic in Turkey. Hair transplants or micropigmentation are the two methods recommended in the treatment of patients in need of reparatory procedures.

Other types of hair transplants in Turkey

Compared to Portugal, Turkey has taken hair transplant operations to a whole new level and now other transplant procedures are available in our clinic in Istanbul, among which:
  •           beard and mustache transplants have become quite sought in our hair transplant clinic in Turkey;
  •           eyelash and eyebrow transplants are also among the medical services available here;
  •           hair transplant operations for women patients have also evolved a lot in Turkey;
  •           ethnic hair transplant operations which take into account the ethnicity of the patient.

These are completed by the use of state-of-the-art techniques, such as dense packing and micropigmentation. Needless to say, that compared to Portugal, the prices of these types of operations are lower in Turkey.

In our hair transplant clinic in Turkey, you can benefit from all the procedures mentioned above, as well as from other treatments based on the particularities of your situation.

Micropigmentation in Turkey 

In the last few years, micropigmentation has become a viable option for those who first want to try and see how they would look after a hair transplant. Micropigmentation can also be used to complete the results of a hair transplant, which is why our doctors use it as a complementary method to a hair transplant in order to render more natural -looking results.
This service is available in hair transplant clinics in Turkey at very attractive costs compared to Portugal.

Hair transplant cost in Turkey vs. Portugal

The prices of hair transplants in Turkey and Portugal vary largely depending on the individual needs of each patient, the hair transplantation method used and the desired outcome. The Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) method is more expensive in both Turkey and Portugal because it represents a more modern technique, it is more time consuming and it requires more skills and talent from the surgeon performing it. In such surgery, each particular follicular unit has to be extracted by hand from the donor area by the physician.

An FUE hair transplant in Portugal would cost an average of around EU 2,000 for 500 grafts up to EU 6,000 for 2,000 grafts.

The average prices for an FUE hair transplant in Turkey are around EU 1,500 to EU 2,500, allowing the patient to save approximately EU 3,500, more than 50% of the costs of hair transplants in Portugal.

Why choose Turkey over Portugal for a hair transplant?

The price is most of the times the main reason why individuals interested in a hair transplant choose Turkey over Portugal, as the costs of a hair transplant can be 50% lower in Turkey than in Portugal, however, we can offer other reasons to choose Turkey.

Turkey is renowned for medical tourism which means you can choose to have a vacation during the period in which you have scheduled a hair transplant operation and at the moment Turkey is one of the few countries in the world where this is actually possible. Also, most hair transplant clinics are located in tourism resorts which make Turkey even more appealing.

Apart from hair transplants, other hair loss treatments are cheaper in Turkey than in Portugal, among these the most common being micropigmentation and hair mesotherapy.
