Thinning hair can result from male pattern baldness, alopecia or stress. No matter the cause, witnessing your own hair loss can induce an ongoing negative spiral as you see your once youthful hairline changing. Fortunately, deciding to get a hair transplant can change not only your appearance, but also the way you feel.
GETTING A Hair Transplant IN Turkey
Turkey has become one of the hottest destinations for hair transplants. Last year 640,000 people flocked to Turkey for medical tourism, a huge increase from the 400,000 visitors in 2019. Hair transplant surgery in Turkey is in such high demand it’s now the 5th most popular destination for hair transplant in the world.
With that volume of patients, hair transplant surgeons in Turkey are considered among the most experienced in the world.
1 HAIR TRANSPLANT COST
The cost of a hair transplant is a big factor. Due to the lower cost of living, hair transplant costs are considerably lower in Turkey than in the UK or Australia.
Popular for both men and women, the transformation occurs in day surgery and within 24 hours most people can resume social activities.
A word of warning: if you’re considering having a hair transplant in Turkey you’ll want to look after your locks in order to provide the best chance of the implants becoming a healthy head of hair post-op.
2 FAST RECOVERY TIME
As with all surgery, there are risks, but generally, patients respond quickly to the FUE hair transplant technique. Within a day you’ll be able to venture out and enjoy some of the sights of Istanbul.
3 YOU’LL LOOK YOUNGER
Even though your face won’t change, hair transplant surgery can change the way you look considerably. A full head of hair is generally associated with youth and once your hair has grown back fully, you’re likely to feel more confident and will be able to choose a stylish haircut rather than ask your hairdresser to leave bits.
4 IT LASTS A LIFETIME
A hair transplant will shed approximately one month after surgery but from there, your hair will be in a growth phase for up to 7 years before the next shedding phase. During that time, new hair will be growing underneath and you’ll never have to worry about going bald again.
5 YOU’LL RECOVER ON HOLIDAY
One of the major benefits of having cosmetic surgery overseas is the fact you get to recover in a beautiful location where nobody you know will see you. Turkey is a beautiful destination with so much to offer. Istanbul has plentiful churches, mosques and temples as well as a plethora of museums and fabulous restaurants. If you like shopping, you’ll love the Grand Bazaar.
6 SUNSETS OVER THE BOSPHORUS
The main river that runs through Turkey is the Bosphorus Strait. Either side of the water are rooftop cafes and bars where you can gaze at the sky and watch it changing colour. One day, you’ll be able to look at your sightseeing photos and run your fingers through your new head of hair…
7 turkey is a top destination for hair transplants
With Turkey being such a popular destination for cosmetic surgery and the top destination for hair transplant and hair implants, you’re far less likely to feel self conscious about your shaved head as you wander around the city and enjoy the sights. It’s not unusual to be sitting next to other people wearing bandages or sporting bruises.
8 TURKISH SURGEONS ARE HIGHLY TRAINED
Cosmetic surgery involves a full medical degree and additional highly specialised training. Turkish standards are high and are in line with Australian, US and British standards. After completing a medical degree, Turkish surgeons are required to undergo a further 5 years of intensive cosmetic surgery training.
9 FUE HAIR TRANSPLANTS LOOK NATURAL
Because your own hair is used for the transplant, your new hairline will look natural and the hair colour and texture will blend perfectly with your previously existing locks. This natural look is a major benefit as once the hair has fully grown nobody will be any the wiser that you went to Turkey to have a hair transplant.
10 MINIMAL AFTERCARE
Other than the first few days post-surgery when you’re advised to stay out of the sun and avoid heavy exercise, your hair transplant will naturally take care of itself. There is no need to use special creams or lotions.
