Hair Transplant Options in Turkey

Turkey is the most popular destination for hair transplants. There are many transplant options in Turkey for a patient to choose from. One should understand the differences between these options so he can make a well informed decision based on the facts.

There are three types of hair transplant surgeries available;

  • FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction)
    • Sapphire FUE
    • microFUE
    • Longhair FUE
  • FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation)
  • DHI (Direct Hair Implantation)


The most popular method in hair transplant Turkey, directly performed by the best doctors of Turkey in 2021. As hair follicles are extracted individually from the back of the head, it is minimally invasive and closer to being a scarless option in hair transplants.

Sapphire FUE is identical to the standard FUE. The only difference is that the microsurgery device used at the incision phase is made of a Sapphire stone, instead of a titanium or steel. You can read more about Sapphire hair transplant here.

MicroFUE refers to the extraction device end used whilst harvesting the hair follicles from the back of your head. The device end is determined in accordance with your hair follicle thickness and varies between 0.6 to 1mm. Visit our FUE page to learn more about it.

LongHair FUE
The long hair FUE, also known as the fully non-shaven FUE, is the choice of patients who would like to return back to work force the very next day. It does what it says on the tin. No single hair follicle needs to be shaved for this procedure. As it requires extra attention and precision, the progress is the slowest across all other methods, and usually one procedure can be completed over 2 or 3 days.


FUT, also known as the strip method, is the second most performed hair transplant surgery method which is still very popular in Europe and the US.

The main difference of the FUT is that instead of extracting hair follicles one at a time, a linear skin tissue is taken from the back of the head. This method leaves a permanent scar on the back of the head where a strip of scalp tissue is taken.

Many doctors strongly believe that the additional fat tissue surrounding every hair follicle helps the grafts stay alive longer as the fat delivers enough energy to the cells to survive until they are anchored to the skin fully, which can take 4-5 days in total.


DHI is relatively new in the hair transplant industry and mostly chosen by the technician-only clinics due to the easier learning curve compared to the other methods listed above. Although it is fundamentally an FUE, it differs at the implantation phase, as the implantation of hair follicles are done by a pen-implanter, rather than forceps. 

Growth yield wise, there is no scientific proof that confirms the DHI leads higher rates. The growth yield still relies on the experience of the surgeon and his team.

Cost of a Hair Transplant in Turkey

The cost of a hair transplant in Turkey is significantly cheaper compared to the UK, US and rest of Europe. Having said that, there are significant price differences between clinics in Turkey and one should know why these differences exist and what to pay attention to.

The main factors influencing the cost of the hair transplant in Turkey are;

  • The price goes up if the clinic has a doctor on board
  • The price goes up if the doctor is actively involved in the surgery
  • The price goes up if the doctor is accredited by the international associations related to hair transplant such as ISHRS and ABHRS
  • The price goes up if the clinic only accepts small number of patients a day
  • The price goes down if the medical establishment has no doctor and consists solely of health technicians (illegal in Turkey and most countries)
  • The price goes down if the clinic has a doctor but the doctor is not involved in the surgery

Payment Options

How to pay for your hair transplant Turkey

Most of the hair transplant clinics in Turkey require patients to pay a deposit to secure their surgery dates. And the remaining balance is due on the surgery date. 

In most cases you can pay your balance in cash or using your credit cards (Although, some tax avoiding clinics charge an extra 18% for credit card payments).

There are only a couple of clinics in Turkey that offer financing or payment plans. These clinics have established business presence in the UK or other European countries. You can check our payment plan page to learn more.

Expected Results After Hair Transplant Turkey

Although a hair transplant operation performed by experienced doctors results in amazing improvement on how a person looks afterwards, it is also crucial for a patient to understand what type of results are achievable and realistic.

A patient should know that a hair transplant is a proven medical procedure and it works within the medical limits.

Hair Transplant in Turkey Explained in 8 Steps

Step 1
Verify Your Suitability
Unfortunately not everyone is suitable for a hair transplant surgery. Make sure to get consultations from reputable clinics to confirm your suitability.
Step 1
Step 2
Choose A Date
In most cases the hair transplant in Turkey is a single day operation. The patients need to arrive to Turkey the day before the surgery and depart the day after the surgery any time after 1pm local time.
Step 2
Step 3
By ISHRS member senior hair surgeons. Duration: 4 - 7 hours Surgery types available: FUE, FUT, DHI
Step 3
Step 4
Aftercare & Flying Back
The day following the surgery, patients are taken back to the hospital for their first hair wash and the aftercare. Patients can have their flights scheduled anytime at/after 1pm local time the day following their hair transplant procedure.
Step 4
Step 5
First 14 Days
This is the initial recovery period. Avoiding sun exposure, swimming, not wearing a tight cap are essential. All scabs fall off during this period.
Step 5
Step 6
After 3 Months
The end of the dormant phase. After 3 months, you can expect to see the new hair growth slowly.
Step 6
Step 7
After 6 Months
At this point, around 40% of the implanted hairs reach maturity. You should start noticing a visible change in front of the mirror.
Step 7
Step 8
After 12 Months
If you have had a frontal hairline implantation, you can expect to see the full results by now. The top and the crown regions may require 3-4 months more to recover fully.
Step 8

Who is Eligible for a Hair Transplant Surgery?

Unfortunately not all men are suitable for a hair transplant surgery. There are many factors which affect someone’s suitability for the hair transplant surgery. There are;

  • Age
  • Hair loss level
  • Hair loss type
  • Existing medical conditions
  • Expectations


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

When someone is in his early-20s, we mostly suggest him to try medications to stop or slow down the hair loss. If a person in his early-30s is still experiencing a heavy hair loss, he may also consider taking medication as well.

Hair loss level

Not everyone experiences the same level of hair loss. Some men only lose hairs over the hairline. Some also get thin on top but still keep some native hairs. A hair transplant works wonders for men who are categorised between Norwood Scale 2 to 4. (Read more about Norwood scale here) We’ve also achieved very promising results on men who were Norwood 5 but had very strong donor region hair.

Hair loss type

A hair transplant is a solution for men and women who experience male pattern hair loss (MPB). There are also other types of alopecia present (a hair transplant is NOT recommended for these). You can read about the other alopecia types here at .

Existing Medical Conditions

If you have any of the following medical conditions, you may not be suitable for a hair transplant procedure;

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


Please be realistic – the aim of a hair transplant procedure is to deliver an age appropriate solution to your hair loss. Although many of our patients speak highly of a hair transplant in Istanbul, you shouldn’t expect miracles from an FUE or FUT hair transplant.

Hair Transplant Doctor in Turkey

A Cost-effective hair transplant Turkey

You don’t have to be an A-list celebrity to afford a hair transplant.

In Turkey, the majority of hair transplants cost between £1,500 – £3,500, a fraction of the cost you would pay for the exact same hair transplant in UK or USA. 


The Turkish Lira is weak against most of the strong currencies in circulation, such as US Dollar, Euro, Pound Sterling. Clinics spend less on labour cost and lease. Therefore cheap hair transplants are available 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.

Turkey is a safe country to visit, certainly no riskier than any other major European destination.

Istanbul has actually had fewer incidents of threats than London or Paris, and security is tight in all good hotels and tourist attractions.
