Here Are Some Facts About Hair Transplant Turkey

Some of the world’s top hair transplant surgeons like Dr. Tayfun Oguzoglu, Dr. Ilker Apaydin, Dr. Ekrem Civas and Dr. Koray Erdogan, who are the members of most respected international organisations such as ISHRS and ABHRS, are based here.

Internationally Qualified Hair Surgeons

Don't let the affordable cost fool you. Turkey is the home for some of the most skilled and highly qualified hair surgeons in the entire world. Especially a hair transplant in Istanbul can give you access to some of the most wanted hair surgeons in Europe.

Strong Competition

The increased number of hair clinics opened in Turkey during the past 5 years created competition between them and thanks to this sweet competition, clinics strive for excellence and are always looking for ways to improve their techniques in order to lead better results. And the ultimate beneficiary of this competition are the patients.

43 JCI Accredited Hospitals

Turkey holds the title for the highest number of JCI accredited hospitals in the region. Their highly strict regulations, along with the latest technologies and advanced skills help rest patients assured that they will receive a top quality medical attention.

Medical Packages Are Tailored For Your Needs

After all, we all have different needs and preferences. In Turkey, the hospitality is at its highest and this also applies to the hair transplant industry. The personalised medical tourism packages offer patients tailor-made solutions to ensure their comfort and safety. Your very own dedicated patient coordinator, private hotel room and chauffeur are ready at your disposal.

Every Medical Team Member Is Licenced

Thanks to the thoroughly regulated medical system by the government, top hair clinics in Turkey ensure that all their team members have relevant experience on quality of care, hygiene and ethics. The teams have comparable experience with hair surgeons gained by the high number of patients they deal with every year.

Clinic Staff Speaks Your Native Language

Highly trained patient coordinators eliminate any language barrier uncertainty. Top clinics only employ multilingual staff who also speak English fluently to provide a peace of mind throughout your stay.

Why Is The Cost Of Hair transplant In Turkey Low?

Hair Transplant in Istanbul

Turkey is now officially the #1 destination for hair transplants. Over 5,000 patients per month travel to Turkey for their hair transplant procedure.

Since the introduction of FUE hair transplant in 2007, the popularity of hair transplantation in Turkey accordingly showed a steep increase as the cost of a hair transplant surgery significantly decreased.

We have outlined the top reasons of why travelling to Turkey for a hair transplant operation makes perfect sense and have prepared a detailed Pros and Cons comparison to help your research.


The Pros & Cons of Hair Transplant In Turkey

“Over 200,000 planes depart every day in the world. Booking a flight ticket is now at our fingertips and much cheaper compared to 10 years ago. 

Understandably, medical tourism also benefits from the recent changes in the last decade, and patients now save significant amounts of money by simply traveling abroad for a medical treatment. 

Below, we transparently listed the advantages and disadvantages of travelling to Turkey for a hair transplant procedure.”

Our dear patient Callum B. explains his journey and discusses his hair transplant result with this self-made video.

PROS of Having A Hair Transplant In Turkey

Hair Transplants At a Very Affordable Price


You don’t have to be Wayne Rooney or Mel Gibson to afford.

In Turkey, a hair transplant costs between £1,500 and £3,500 mostly. This is just a fraction of the cost you would pay for the exact same hair transplant in UK or USA. 


Well, there isn’t a real catch. Turkish Lira is weak against most of the strong currencies in circulation, such as US Dollars, Euro, Pound Sterling. Therefore clinics spend less on labor cost and lease. A cheap hair transplant is absolutely possible in Turkey with no compromise on quality.

And the good news is; Turkey has some of the most well-known and experienced hair surgeons around the world.

Here is a list of hair transplant doctors in Turkey with 15-20 years of experience: Best hair surgeons of Turkey list

After You Return Follow Ups Continue


Many times we hear that patients are reluctant to travel abroad, simply because of being unsure about who to contact if something goes wrong or need assistance with the aftercare.

 Not anymore. With periodic controls on the 14th day, 3rd, 6th and 12th month, GetHair rests patients assured that their patient consultant will stay in touch. 

How about a physical meeting in person? With 3 offices worldwide, you are also covered. And on top, all appointments are 100% free, forever.

A hair transplant experience in Turkey does not finish once you are back.

More Patients Travel To Turkey Since 2000


Patients show great interest in going to Turkey for medical procedures and benefit from the well-known hospitality of the Turkish culture, whilst receiving a top notch treatment. And Istanbul, being in the centre of this.

Records indicate that many people started traveling to Turkey as early as the 6th century BC, for Asclepion, an ancient Greek healing centre.

The Turkish Ministry of Tourism is also well aware of the interest shown to hair clinics and therefore the government keeps the audits very tight and frequent to ensure whoever undergoes a hair transplantation in Turkey, is definitely in safe hands.

Especially the British men, who cannot afford a UK hair transplant procedure, travel to Turkey for cheap but reliable hair transplants.

Getting a Visa Is a Piece Of Cake


According to Wikipedia, a total of 78 countries are visa exempt and another 42 countries’ citizens can directly apply for a visa online and receive their visa to travel immediately. Even if you are not a national of those countries, a valid Schengen visa or permanent residency in one of those countries listed gives you the right to apply for a visa online without the need of travelling to a local consulate.

Safety Is Not a Concern Anymore


As written at Escape.com.au blog, Istanbul has actually had fewer incidents of threats than London or Paris, and security is tight in all good hotels and tourist attractions. The map on the right is taken from the Washington Post article, and red dots present the incidents that took place in recent years. The map tells everything.

CONS of Having a Hair Transplant In Turkey

Not Every Clinic Has a Doctor In Operation


However, always ask the clinic who is behind the surgery. Turkey has many technician only clinics, which don’t have any qualified personnel employed. The cheap FUE hair transplant cost is one thing, but finding the correct hair transplant centre is another.

– Is there a doctor? If Yes,

– Will that doctor participate in your procedure actively? If Yes,

– Does the doctor have relevant memberships as proof of experience?

Having a hair surgeon present at your procedure is essential for a good hair growth. At the end of the day, they spend their years in this field to sharpen their skills. It doesn’t happen over a night. Don’t let absurdly cheap quotes delude you. This is your hair, your self-confidence, your only makeup.

We have made a guide to spot Black market hair clinics and how to avoid them: How to choose the cheap, but the right clinic?

Your Doctor Will Be Based In Turkey


Some doctors you meet locally in your home country may warn you against this. It is true that you won’t be able to see your surgeon physically once you traveled back. The good news is, you don’t have to.

Although a hair transplant operation is a medical procedure, it is much less invasive than others and considered as a walk-in outpatient procedure. This is mainly due to the very small risk of complications.

As long as you choose an experienced surgeon with relevant credentials in place, you can always contact his/her team members and request a phone call or even a Skype conversation to put a face on the voice.

You Need To Hop On a Plane


Although Istanbul is not very far from many major cities in Europe, you still need to book a flight and prepare a luggage. 

For some of us, this is inconvenient as it needs more planing. And of course you may not bring every family member with you, as it will be an additional cost on top.

But as the chart we shared above reveals, an increasing number of people travel to Turkey every year in the meanwhile. This basically means saving thousands still weighs more than a quick travel.

Even when the airfare cost is included, your hair transplant cost will be still cheaper and save you at least 50% over a local clinic charge.

Pros Of Hair Transplant In Turkey

  • More patients travel to Turkey since 2000
  • Getting visa is a piece of cake
  • Safety is not a concern anymore
  • You will receive a top notch treatment
  • After your return, follow ups continue

Cons Of Hair Transplant In Turkey

Who Is Behind Your Surgery

As you know there are many hair transplant clinics in Turkey but there are only a handful who take huge pride in their work and are determined to provide medical services of the utmost quality to their patients. Many clinics may suggest their surgeon is one of the finest in the land but only very few can claim to be a member of both the ISHRS and the ABHRS.

Dr Tayfun Oguzoglu

As a Prospect Patient, You Need To Know The Following
Before Getting a Hair transplant In Turkey

The idea of having a hair implantation shouldn’t be to look 18 again. A new frontal hairline should suit your age, and reflect the true nature of your visage. Although many of our patients speak highly of a hair transplant in Istanbul, you shouldn’t expect miracles from a FUE hair transplant.


The top hair surgeons in the world do not accept patients who are under the age of 25 – 27. The hair loss usually progresses at a fast pace during the early years of it and does not get stable until late-20s. Bearing in mind that the donor region is a limited source, it makes sense to wait until your hair loss gets stable so that your valuable hair follicles are used wisely.


Unfortunately, not every man is suitable for a hair transplant procedure, and one big reason is that they don’t have enough donor region area or density to support extracting of grafts. If you have a large bald area, then you may opt in for a half coverage rather than full, so that you still receive a good density that would provide a satisfactory outcome.


You may need to check your suitability for a successful hair transplant procedure if you have any of the conditions listed above.

  • Hypertension
  • Heart disease
  • Hepatitis B
  • Underlying skin conditions
