With its competitive price and high standards of treatment options, Turkey has become one of the the most wanted country concerning hair transplantation.

Turkey is most preferred because of its affordable prices. Still, competitive prices are only one of the many reasons why Turkey stands out in terms of hair transplantation surgery.

Reasons why Turkey is preferred for Hair Transplantation:

High quality and affordable price

In Turkey, the cost of treatment is affordable, it does not mean that the treatments services offered are of substandard quality. On the contrary, Turkey is the country with the most accredited health care organizations from Joint Commission International (JCI)  after the United States. The fact that a healthcare institution is accredited by JCI means that it has international standards technical equipment and that it provides high quality health services with experienced and expert physicians.

Turkey has modernised its medical infrastructure to a top level. For this reason, the most advanced techniques such as ‘Follicular Unit Extraction’ (FUE) and ‘Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy’ (PRP) in hair transplantation are performed with advanced technological infrastructure and even above international medical standards.

An international experience

Traveling abroad for treatment is very difficult and worrying. However, Patient care consultants working in health institutions treating patients coming from abroad make the whole process easier. Patient care consultants stay close to the patient during the treatment process, arrange transfers from the airport to the hospital and the hotel, provide accommodation in a hotel close to the hospital and provide translation services. Patients can ask any question they want to ask in their own language, call the patient care consultants at any time they need it, and get support in any case.

No waiting list for hair transplantation

While one has to wait for one month to have his /her hair transplantation in the United States or England, an appointment can be scheduled immediately for hair transplantation in Turkey. You can plan your hair transplantation surgery according to your own schedule, your business without including the waiting list issue.

Quick return to daily life

Thanks to minimally invasive procedures, patients who underwent hair transplantation surgery can return to work  approximately 2-5 days after the transplantation, depending on the type of treatment received. However, this varies from one patient’s condition to another.

In touch with the historical texture and the breathtaking nature

Being treated abroad can turn into a touristic, pleasant journey as well as getting a good service from a hospital. Turkey is the right choice to turn your treatment into a breathtaking journey with its cultural and geographical diversity, natural beauty, historical texture, restaurants, cafes, shopping malls. In Turkey, country known as most wanted for hair transplantation, people are quite accustomed to see tourists walking in the streets with bandages on their heads.

You can schedule an appointment for your hair transplantation at the health institutions where Plan B provides services without wasting time. Right  after your hair transplantation surgery you can enjoy the charming beauty of the Bosphorus and you can visit the famous Istiklal Street in Istanbul  with your bandages.

FUE is a newer technique, and unlike other hair transplant procedures, FUE works on a ‘hair by hair’ basis. Each hair is extracted as a whole unit, complete with glands and then transplanted to the new area. By taking more time, the healing period is reduced and the levels of success are greater.

Because the follicles have been taken from an area of hair unaffected by the hormone which causes male pattern baldness, the new hairs are unaffected, and will not be subject to the same patterns of loss.

FUE – or Follicular Unit Extraction – is the process of replacing lost areas of hair by implanting healthy follicles from elsewhere on the head. A donor area of the scalp is selected, usually based upon the abundance of hair. This area is usually taken from the back of the scalp, where a large volume of hair grows naturally.

FUE transplants are relatively unobtrusive and are performed under local anaesthetic, so as to reduce complications or the need for long stays. The process is reasonably simple and quick, and undergoing FUE in the vast majority of cases have no complications for patients, most of whom can return to work the following day.

FUE hair transplants are all carried out under a microscope by experienced professionals to ensure absolute precision and to help create as natural a restored hairline as possible.

FUE is a newer technique and unlike other hair transplant procedures, FUE works on an individual hair basis. Each hair is extracted as a whole unit, complete with the necessary glands and then transplanted to the new area. Although less invasive, the procedure is very intricate and this can lead to an FUE procedure taking slightly longer than the FUT method. By taking more time, the healing period is reduced and the levels of success are greater. Whilst no procedure is scar free, the scarring of FUE is limited to small dots which become invisible after a short amount of hair growth.

Using FUE, we expose the follicles to as little in the way of damage as possible, and this gives each transplanted hair the best chance of survival. Because the follicles have been taken from an area of hair unaffected by DHT – the hormone causing male pattern baldness – the new hairs are unaffected and will not be subject to the same patterns of loss.

FUE is primarily a solution for combating male pattern baldness, which describes a pattern of hair loss that generally affects the temples and crown, leaving men (and sometimes women) with hair around the back and sides of the head but nowhere else. Not everyone is a suitable candidate for FUE treatment, as factors such as the extent of hair loss and hair type (i.e. straight/wavy/afro) can determine the most appropriate transplant method.

If you would like more information about FUE hair transplant treatments, how it works, and to find out whether this is the best method to restore your hair after an episode of hair loss, then contact us today to arrange a no-fuss consultation. We pride ourselves on being honest and trustworthy, and our promise to our clients is to always offer the most appropriate solution to give the best results on an individual basis.

Is the procedure painful?

There is a small amount of pain when injecting the anaesthetic. After the anaesthetic has gone in you shouldn’t feel any pain at all. We use very small needles and have developed techniques to minimise the pain of the injections. If pain does develop we can top up the anaesthetic to reduce this.

What does it feel like afterwards? And can I take pain medication?

The feeling afterwards is usually described as a tightness at the front and a dull ache at the back. This normally subsides within 48 hours but you can take Paracetamol or Co-codamol to help with this. You can’t take Aspirin/Ibuprofen for at least 3 days after as this will make the bruising worse.

Do you put patients to sleep before hair transplant surgery?

No, putting patients to sleep is not required. You will be awake for the entire procedure and can read, use your phone/tablet in the after during the implantation. We do give you a small dose for relax you in the morning, but this means you cannot drive home.

Will my grafts shed?

There is a normal period of shedding and growth:

Up to 6 weeks: Anywhere between all and none of your hair follicles can shed during this stage (this is normal)

Up to 3 months: The new hairs will start to come through the skin

Up to 6 months: Enough growth to get an idea of density

Up to 12 months: Should have reached full results (can in some cases take slightly longer)

When will I start to see the results?

The full results can take up to/over 12 months for the full result, but usually, by 9 months the results are evident.

How bad is the swelling?

The swelling varies from person to person but we give you medication afterwards to try to minimise this. Sometimes the swelling and bruising can descend to around the eyes after a procedure due to gravity. In most cases, patients can return to work within a week, however, there may still be some evidence of bruising in the implantation area up to 3 weeks afterwards.
