Being a developed country, because of the high cost of living and workforce, Sweden is one of the most expensive countries to have a hair transplant in. Because of this reason, Swedish patients are turning their attention to other more cost-effective countries like Turkey where they can have this type of procedures done at one-third of the cost in Sweden. Even if the patients have to stay at a hotel and spend money on the flight tickets, the price for an entire journey for a hair transplant in Turkey is still much lower than undertaking such an operation in Sweden.

When comparing the prices of a hair transplant operation in Turkey and Sweden, patients should know that the cost depends on the number of transplanted grafts. With a vast experience in the field of hair transplants, our surgeons in Istanbul welcome patients from all over the world who are interested in a hair transplant operation.

Types of hair transplant procedures in Turkey and Sweden

In the past few years, the hair transplant industry has evolved a lot and new procedures keep appearing, and it is the main goal of our doctors in Turkey to keep up with these new developments in order to offer our patients the best services.

In our hair transplant clinic in Turkey, we have a great number of doctors specialized in various types of hair transplant operations, and even if it might seem more expensive to request a consult with such a doctor, the cost of such a consult is cheaper than in Sweden.

Among the hair transplant procedures a patient can benefit from in Turkey are:
  •           the most common one is a hair transplant on the scalp of both male and female patients;
  •           we can also perform hair transplant procedures on the face, such as beard and mustache;
  •           eyelash and eyebrow hair transplant are also medical procedures we offer in our clinic;
  •           sideburns transplant is one of the newest procedures available in our modern clinic.

Should you need any other type of service we did not mention here, do not hesitate to ask our hair transplant doctors in Turkey about them.

Even if these procedures are also available in Sweden, due to the higher costs there, most patients usually choose our clinic in Turkey because of the professionalism they are treated with. Also, Turkey has become one of the world’s most appreciated hair transplant destinations. Moreover, Turkey is currently one of the most important medical hubs in Europe, not only because of the hair transplant industry but also for other plastic surgery procedures.

FUE hair transplant in Turkey and Sweden

One of the most employed hair transplant procedures in Turkey and Sweden is Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). Being the newest and most modern procedures, FUE is used in many clinics around the world, including in Turkey and Sweden with a very high rate of success.

Compared to an FUE hair transplant in Sweden, the prices of an FUE hair transplant in Turkey are cheaper. As explained earlier, the price of a hair transplant is based on the number of hair grafts transplanted on the donor area, and in Turkey, the price per graft is cheaper than in other countries, including in Sweden, therefore lowering the entire cost of the procedure.

Here are the steps of an FUE hair transplant in our clinic in Istanbul:
  1.           our doctors will first assess the donor and the recipient areas in order to determine the approximate number of grafts to be harvested and transplanted;
  2.           then, the donor area is prepared in order to collect viable grafts for a successful transplant;
  3.           the recipient area is also prepared by applying a local anesthetic for the best comfort of the hair transplant;
  4.           once the transplant is completed, the patient will be monitored for a short period of time and then released.

As mentioned above, during the initial assessment, our doctors will approximate the number of grafts needed, therefore they will be able to forward patients with an approximate cost of the whole procedure. Our doctors are also opened to answering any questions, so patients are encouraged to prepare their lists of questions for our surgeons in order to clear any doubts about the procedures they are interested in.

Why choose Turkey over Sweden for a hair transplant?

Both Turkey and Sweden have specialists working in the clinics performing hair transplants, which is why deciding for one of them can be hard, especially when it comes to those living in countries near Sweden. However, they should know, that compared to Sweden, Turkey is a much sunnier country, therefore additional to excellent services, they can also enjoy a great vacation while in Turkey for a hair transplant.
