More People Heading to Turkey for Hair Transplants

Hair transplant doctors have found themselves in the midst of a booming business. So many men and women across the globe are not only finding that their hair is thinning or they are becoming bald, but they are also aware that they no longer have to suffer in silence. Options exist, and can now be affordable as well for hair transplants.

This permanent solution to hair loss is typically costly in the U.S. due to high doctor fees, insurance premiums, etc. However, overseas, where the medical market is setup much differently, people have found that traveling to outside destinations means they can still get a wonderful hair transplant, at only a fraction of the cost.

Turkey is one location that has boasted a recent uptick in foreign patients traveling to the region for their hair transplant needs.

‘Medical tourism’ is the phrase that’s been coined to define the phenomenon and according to one report, “of the estimated 310,624 hair restoration procedures performed worldwide in 2012, Europe has witnessed the biggest increase in the number of procedures with 54,343 procedures performed in 2012 — a 39 percent increase from 2010.”

Turkey is the location for a number of premier surgeons already skilled in hair restoration from FUE hair transplants to even more modern procedures like eyebrow and beard hair transplants. Hospitals in the region are also no stranger to surgery procedures. The hospital EstesWorld, serves more than 6,000 hair transplant patients a year and has over 15 years of experience under its belt.
