Having Hair Transplant in Istanbul: Why Is It Popular?

Hair loss treatment is still among the most popular plastic surgeries. The number of patients are soaring, and doctors come up with new solutions to cater to their personal needs. The global trend of health tourism only supports this trend.

For someone following the developments in hair regrowth treatments, it is not hard to see that Turkey occupies a truly special place in the field. Many people wonder why is it. Is it the price? Is it a matter of quality? We have decided to give a definitive answer. Here is it in 6 points. 

  1. Istanbul – the Capital of Medical Tourism

As the world becomes more and more globalized, Turkey and its gem – Istanbul – have gained the attention of people around the globe. The hospital chains of Istanbul, serve hundreds of thousands of patients every year in all fields of plastic surgery. These include breast augmentation, liposuction, eye surgeries, and most importantly – hair replacement. Recently, Turkey became one of the top countries in health tourism.

The critical issue was initially the competitive pricing as well as its geographical position. Located between the West and East, between Europe and the Middle East, Turkey attracts people from a range of countries. Short flight times and affordable plane tickets have supported the rise of Turkey as the leading player in health tourism.

However, nowadays, the situation is quite different. Apart from its proximity to other countries, Turkish healthcare and especially giants are renowned for their superb quality.

  1. Top-End Hair Restoration Clinics

Turkish clinics and hospitals have become the synonym for quality when it comes to hair transplant surgery. Flymedi clinics serve thousands of patients every year in a top-notch facility with the capacity to take care of many patients. Looking at the reviews, we can see that patients generally praise not only their doctors and hair transplant results. They emphasize the high-end technology utilized throughout the clinic. 

  1. International Staff

Even the best clinic, however, is nothing without experienced staff. Turkish hair surgery clinics set an excellent example with their international, well-educated doctors, and staff members. Since they increasingly deal with patients from around the globe, many doctors know at least one foreign language. Moreover – many of them are foreigners, having had experience in other countries before settling down in Istanbul.

Additionally, in Turkey, many clinics are specifically focused on hair growth treatments. Therefore, their medical teams are experienced in this particular field. It is not so in many countries where doctors perform all types of plastic surgery. In this way, their experience in a particular area is much smaller. To the contrary, Turkish clinics offer more experienced staff thanks to their specialization.

  1. Development and Innovation in Hair Transplantation

Another important point is that all clinics dealing with hair restoration pay attention to the newest trends in the field of baldness treatment. Flymedi doctors continuously follows the developments in the area and try to apply them as soon as possible. That’s why they started to conduct percutaneous FUE hair transplant when they became a viable option for patients. In short, percutaneous FUE hair transplant is a more precise type of an already classical FUE method. With it, the scarring is close to zero and patients achieve the hair regrowth they dreamt of.

Turkish hair growth clinics, in general, are often pioneers in new hair implant techniques. Patients can find here not only passionate and experienced doctors but also hair transplant procedures, which often only start to appear in other parts of the world.

  1. Additional Services

The key feature of Turkish plastic surgery clinics are the 'packages'. They offer deals in which you do not have to worry about your stay in Istanbul. They include not only the hair transplant cost but also transportation to and from the airport. Moreover, they cover the pick-up from hotel to hair restoration clinic, necessary medications, and PRP treatment. PRP treatment increases the chances of superb hair transplant results.

  1. Not Only Medical Tourism

Last but not least, Turkey is not only the capital of health tourism. Patients come to Istanbul to get hair transplant surgery in a renowned hospital under the supervision of hair doctors. However, many use this occasion not only to fight hair loss but also to sightsee. After all – you are in Turkey, a country with a rich history and astonishing nature. We guess that there is nothing wrong with combining plastic surgery with a couple of days of holidays, isn’t it?
