If you have considered a hair transplant, one place that you might have considered getting the procedure done, is Turkey.
Some people may choose to have a hair transplant in Turkey because they are experiencing hair loss or hair thinning issues.
Hair transplants can be a popular choice for people who want to change the way their hair looks, and Turkey can be a popular destination for a number of reasons, such as the price being more competitive.
One reason that the price of a transplant in Turkey can be more competitive than it is in the UK and Ireland, is because in places such as Istanbul there are a large number of hair transplant clinics that offer similar treatments.
Medart Hair Clinic
One place to get a hair transplant in Turkey is Medart Hair Clinic based in Istanbul. The clinic has a team of surgeons who specialise in hair FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) transplant techniques.
The professional team at Medart Hair Clinic believe that each patient should be treated in a unique way and given good care. That is why the clinic can provide personal interpreters who speak Turkish, English, German, Arabic, Italian and Spanish.
Hair transplants are a form of cosmetic surgery and therefore are not risk-free. They should not be performed on anyone under 18 years old and you should always seek independent medical advice before undergoing any form of invasive surgery or medical procedure.
Hair transplant packages
If you are looking to have hair transplant surgery at Medart Hair Clinic, but want to know more about what your new hairline might look like and ask your surgeon any questions you may have, a free consultation is available through the website.
After you have decided to get a hair transplant in Istanbul at Medart Hair Clinic, a driver will pick you up from the airport and take you to either the clinic or your hotel, depending on what time you arrive. Transfers to and from the airport, hotel and clinic are included in the package you receive at Medart Hair Clinic.
Once the hair transplant is complete and you have had time to rest, you will come back to the clinic the next day so that your surgeon can check how the surgery went. Your new transplant will also be carefully washed on the second day and you will be given advice and guidance on how to care for your new hair.
The friendly team should also provide you with shampoo, lotions and antibiotic creams that you can take home with you.
Hair transplant techniques
Medart Hair Clinic specialises in FUE and Sapphire FUE hair transplants. An FUE transplant stands for Follicular Unit Extraction and involves grafts being taken from the donor area (usually the back of the head where the hair is thickest) and being implanted into the recipient area (where the hair loss or thinning occurs).
A Sapphire FUE transplant means that a special tool with a Sapphire blade is used to create the incisions on the scalp. This can allow the surgeon to place the extracted hair follicles in line with the growing hair and try to aim for a more natural-looking regrowth pattern.
Two days after the hair transplant has taken place a controlled and gentle washing of the hair and scalp is done by the team at the clinic.
One week to ten days after the transplant at Medart Hair Clinic you may experience the transplanted hair falling out, which is normal and is known as shock loss. After the shock loss occurs you should start to see the new hair begin to grow and although results vary depending on your health and age, you should see the full results from the transplant up to a year after.
Medart Hair Clinic also offers beard transplants, which work in a similar way to hair transplants on the head. If the Sapphire FUE method is used, the technology may also help to reduce scabbing and scarring in most cases.
The price you may pay for a hair transplant in Istanbul at Medart Hair Clinic can depend on a number of factors, such as the number of grafts that may need to be used to complete the transplant.
The packages at Medart Hair Clinic include hotel and transfers as well as the transplant itself and can cost from $2,500 to $7,500.
