For anyone who is struggling with thinning hair, they may have tried many different methods to tackle their hair loss.
When holistic treatments haven’t worked, turning to cosmetic surgery may be their only option. Hair transplants have grown in popularity over recent years, with many people opting to undergo surgery to tackle their hair loss.
You should always speak to your GP before committing to surgery, as they can ensure you are fit and well, and are medically suitable to undergo a procedure such a hair transplant. If you have the all clear, deciding where to go for your hair transplant is the next step in your hair restoration journey.
Some people will choose to travel abroad for their cosmetic surgery as it is typically more affordable in countries such as Turkey than it is in the UK. However, it can be overwhelming trying to choose the right clinic for you, which is where agencies such as Body Expert come in.
Like any cosmetic surgery, hair transplants are an invasive procedure, are not risk-free, and are not to be performed on anyone under 18 years old. Always seek independent medical advice before undergoing any medical procedures. Results may vary from patient to patient.
How can Body Expert help?
Body Expert helps international patients find the right cosmetic surgery for their hair transplant in Turkey. By having a Body Expert assistant on hand, you not only have continued help and guidance, but you will also have the support of someone who is familiar with the process to help you know what to expect at each stage of your hair transplant.
International patients can rely on Body Expert to help with everything from securing a price quote to attending a post-operational follow-up appointment to ensure aftercare is being followed properly, and everything in between.
After you have been assigned a Body Expert assistant, they will discuss what your wants and needs are from your hair transplant, and then match you with one of their clinics. Each clinic that is recommended by Body Expert provides quality care, and has fully qualified and experienced surgeons performing each of their hair transplants.
They will also discuss your budget and help you secure a quote for your hair transplant, before organising and planning your consultation call with your surgeon. Their pricing is transparent, and they will keep you informed of exactly what the cost will be for your hair transplant surgery.
When it comes to the procedure, they will be there at each appointment and to support you during your surgery. Their assistants are fluent in English and can act as a translator during your appointments to help ensure communication is smooth and you know exactly what is happening.
What is included in your Body Expert package?
Your designated Body Expert assistant will be present for each part of your hair transplant journey, and their packages include:
The assistance of an English-speaking interpreter
An FUE hair transplant of between 2000 and 5000 grafts
Accommodation in a nearby hotel
Advice and a post-operative follow-up appointment
VIP transfers between the hotel, airport, and the clinic
A 10-year warranty certificate
What to expect from your hair transplant
As part of your package, the clinic will perform an FUE hair transplant of between 2000 and 5000 grafts. This method is used at many hair transplant clinics in Istanbul and allows the surgeon to remove the hair follicles with precision.
During your hair transplant operation, you will be given a local anesthetic to the areas being treated. The surgeon will then remove the individual hair follicles from the donor area, which is usually found at the nape of the neck as this area is typically less affected by hair loss, meaning the follicles are less likely to be impacted by genetic hair loss.
The individual follicles are then re-implanted into the recipient area. How many grafts are required will depend on the size of the area being treated, as well as whether the procedure is to help thinning hair or total hair loss.
In Body Expert’s experience, most hair transplant procedures will typically last between six and eight hours, although this will vary from patient to patient. You will also be able to discuss all of this information with your surgeon during your pre-operative consultation call, so you know what to expect before you visit the clinic.
