How to get a hair transplant in Turkey?

If you're considering getting a hair transplant in Turkey, the best option would be to contact hair transplant surgeon's office directly. Third-party medical tourism agencies aren't reasonable and could cost you more money. If you have any concerns about surgery or results, it'll be easier for surgeons to help rather than a tourism agency that can not offer the same level of medical-surgical service.

If you’re reading this article, you’ve likely decided to come to Turkey. However, you do not know where to start. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to get a hair transplant in Turkey.

What Is Hair Transplant?

A hair transplant is a surgical procedure that involves extracting hair grafts from one area of the head (known as the donor site) and transplanting it to another area (known as the recipient site) of the scalp. Hair transplant surgery is usually performed on men who are experiencing male pattern baldness.

Key Takeaways

  • Schedule a consultation with the surgeon. That is a critical step, as you will need to discuss your medical history and desired results. Be sure to ask about the surgeon’s experience and success rate.
  • Prepare for the procedure. That includes stopping certain medications and drinks one week ago.
  • Before the surgery begins, speak with the surgeon face to face about the operation plan and ensure you’re on the same page. Also, discuss your expectations and demands with the doctor so there are no surprises. For example, if the crown area is more important to you than the front area, you may request that your operation plan be changed accordingly.
  • Undergo surgery and follow all post-operative instructions.
  • After returning home, take at least two weeks off before returning to work.

Step 1: Finding A Reputable Surgeon

There are many talented surgeons in Turkey, so it is essential to research to find the right one for you. Look at before and after photos, read reviews, compare prices of clinics, and ask for recommendations from friends or family members who have had a good experience. Once you have narrowed down your options, make an appointment for a consultation. Once you’ve chosen a clinic, you’ll work with their staff to schedule your procedure and select a date that works for you.

Step 2: Prepare for Surgery

After you have chosen your surgeon, they will give you specific instructions on how to prepare for surgery. It may include quitting smoking, avoiding certain medications such as blood thinner Aspirin (Coraspin), and getting rid of piercings or tattoos in the donor area. It is essential to follow these instructions carefully to ensure the best possible results.

Step 3: Undergo surgery

Before undergoing hair transplant surgery, you will need to have a few blood tests done to check for the risk of infection. No worry because hair transplant clinics do these blood tests. Hair transplants are typically done under local anesthesia, so you will be awake during the procedure but should not feel any pain. The entire procedure usually takes six to eight hours, depending on the number of grafts transplanted.

Step 4: Recover from Surgery

After your surgery, you must take it easy for a few days and avoid strenuous activity. To help reduce swelling and edema, it is critical to sleep with your head elevated and avoid strenuous activity and exercise for at least the first week after surgery. You may also be instructed to wear a special cap or bandage. Most people take between seven and ten days off work to recover fully from surgery.
