Cost of Hair Transplant in Turkey

Getting a hair transplant involves not only committing to undergoing a surgical procedure, but also investing financially to have the hair transplant and any pre and post care done. While the cost of a hairtransplant can vary from location to surgeon requests - the biggest way people are saving on the cost of a hair transplant today is by traveling outside ofthe U.S.

Europe is a top, trusted to location people are heading to - particularly Turkey, where numerous surgeons skilled in hair transplants and enticing accommodations are making it a hub for medical tourism.

Not only are things like the surgeon, location and number of visits needed, key in coming up with the total cost of a hair transplant, but another important factor is the kind of hair transplant a patient will be getting.  There are various types of procedures and methods of both extracting and transplanting the hair follicles and no patient will have the same need.

FUE and FUT are the most popular hair transplant procedures and they typically range in price for around $1.50 per hair graft -$ 4.70 per hair that is being transplanted from the donor location on the back of the scalp to the balding area.

This price can be further reduced or increased based on automated procedures versus those that have to be done slowly and manually.  There is then also the cost of medicine and transportation and hotel stays (if your clinic doesn't offer it) to calculate into the budget.

What’s special about the cost of hair transplants in Turkey is the price is usually calculated as a per session price and is not typically broken down into charging per unit of hair follicle extracted.

For anyone who has a larger area needing coverage, turning to the FUT method can help grab and transplant more hair follicles in each session with the surgeon than those who must carefully hair smaller hair units removed and transplanted.

Also, the cost of any medical procedure can be far less outside of the U.S. due to  how medical insurance plans and coverage are set up. Because it is considered a cosmetic surgery, the prices can skyrocket well about the thousands of dollars mark.

Since all of these factors will take a toll on your bill - it’s important to always set up a consultation first - you might even be able to get it done for free - so you can talk to the actual doctor about what you will need in your particular case, and what the prices and any amenities offered may be.

The main factors that can influence hair transplant costs include:

The density required for transplant:

Most hair transplants provide 35-40 grafts per cm2. The number of grafts provided will depend on how bald a person may be coming into the surgery. 

Total number of grafts required:

Depending on the side of the area that requires grafts you can sometimes be charged on a per graft basis for the surgery. 

The technique:

Different techniques may need to be used in order to insert multiple hair follicles per graft or utilize one of two methods for the surgery. The traditional method for implanting the hair follicles called FUT usually costs between 1-1. 5USD per hair graft whereas the advanced stitch less procedure known as FUE can cost between 2-4.5 USD per graft. The second procedure technique can produce a faster recovery time and a much more natural look but it does cost considerably more. 

The qualifications of the physician:

The operating doctor for hair transplant surgery should be a qualified plastic surgeon that has many years of experience in the industry. If a doctor comes highly recommended and highly in demand from many travellers and locals they can often command a higher price for their services. As well as the experience that a doctor can provide, the quality of their results also come into consideration. If a doctor has performed quality work in the past and they can reference a number of excellent and natural looking surgeries that they have performed, they can often command a higher price as well.

Frequently asked questions about hair transplant procedures

How much does a hair transplant cost?

Hair transplants can vary in price based off of the area in the world that you are interested in getting a hair transplant as well as the size of the area where you may need a hair transplant. Experienced doctors in the United States will often charge some of the highest prices for a hair transplant worldwide and this is why so many travelers make the move to other parts the world like Turkey, India, Thailand, Mexico...etc for their hair transplants.

Will a hair transplant hurt?

Although hair transplants may look like a particularly unpleasant or painful experience is actually very little discomfort involved with the surgery itself. Hair transplants are always done under an anesthetic so there's absolutely zero pain during the treatment itself. Many people actually relate the process as being very similar to going to the dentist for filling or root canal. Mild pain can persist over the course of postop treatment but he generally just resumes for a few days.

Who can deliver the best surgery?

It's usually best to consider working with surgeons who have and IAHRS certification or international alliance of hair restoration surgeons recognition. IAHRS can often deliver recommendations for the best surgeons in each particular area.

Is this scarring noticeable?

Any type of hair transplant will require the use of incisions throughout the scalp. There can also sometimes be a small scar from the donor area towards the back of the scalp. Asking to look at photos of the surgeon's previous work will help you to see roughly how bad the scarring could be. In most cases an experienced professional can limit the look of scarring and noticeable marks from the surgery.

How long does it take for the hair to grow?

In most cases hair growth will start within eight months and you can start to see a full effect from the hair transplant after a full year. The initial signs of growth can usually start between 3 to 4 months after the surgery.

Are the results permanent?

The hair follicles that are transplanted are generally the ones which are genetically resistant against the symptoms of baldness. As long as you receive hair loss treatment later in your life after the symptoms of balding have started to subside, you can have a better chance at permanent results.

While everyone know you've had surgery?

If you want to limit the chance that people may find out about your surgery it's important to give at least three weeks of healing as the surgical area will be affected and red just after surgery. After around a month of healing it can look far less noticeable. You could consider wearing a hat while time passes or opting for some extra time off if possible.

How long should I rest after surgery?

It's recommended to rest for at least a few days after surgery so that your body can recover. Trenton to over exert yourself and limit sexual activity, running in the gym for around 10 days after surgery.

Is it possible to lose more hair as a result of surgery?

There is always a chance of shock loss which happens when the hair is weak and miniaturizing after the surgery. As long as the surgeon is choosing the correct hair follicles and performing the surgery well it's possible to minimize the chance of this happening however.

Will I need another hair transplant?

The need for another transplant really depends on the individual. With a solid foundation surgery and working to potentially bolster results with drug therapy, you can improve the stability of the hair that was transplanted as well as prevent further loss. Getting a hair transplant early on in your 20s or early on in life could lead to needing long-term transplants as hair loss can be progressive.
