This type of tourism is booming, since a few years ago, as tourists travel to this country for “multi-purposes”, ranging from thermal spa treatments, dental care, cardiology, plastic surgery and hair transplantation.
There are many reasons to choose Turkey for hair restoration surgery. The most obvious reason is that the quality of medical care in Turkey is exceptional. In addition, the cost of hair restoration surgery in Turkey is much cheaper than in the United States or Europe.
Another reason to choose Turkey for hair restoration surgery is the fact that the country is home to some of the world’s best hair transplant surgeons. Turkish surgeons are among the most experienced and skilled surgeons in the world, and they use the latest techniques and equipment for hair restoration surgery.
According to the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery’s (ISHRS) year reports, there are about equal numbers of hair restoration surgeons in the USA and Turkey.
Finally, Turkey is a beautiful country with a rich culture and history. It’s a great place to visit, and you can enjoy all that the country has to offer while you’re recovering from hair restoration surgery.
People often choose to travel to Turkey for hair restoration surgery due to the following reasons:
1. The surgeons in Turkey are experienced and have a lot of training, making the surgery more likely to be successful.
2. The cost of surgery is much lower than in other countries, so it’s a more affordable option.
3. The people are friendly and welcoming, and the culture is rich and diverse, making for an enjoyable experience.
4. There are many tourist attractions in Turkey, so you can enjoy your downtime after surgery.
These hospitals are prepared for this type of tourism and have, among their employees, teams of multilingual translators to help them during their stay. Medical professionals with a well-respected and top-quality reputation work in these centers. Foreigners of this type of medical tourism are usually patients from the Middle East, Balkans, Asia, North Africa and Western Europe.
This type of medical tourism is driven by the low price of their medical treatments since there is a big price difference between some countries and others. For example, in Europe, plastic surgery ranges between 10,000 and 15,000 euros, while in Turkey it could cost between 3,000 and 6,000 euros.
In 2008 Turkey received 75,000 visits for surgical practices and this figure has been increasing since in 2016, 1 million people traveled to this country as health tourism. It is expected that these figures will grow as the goal of the Turkish government is to reach two million. For this, they are studying the possibility of creating tax-free health zones specifically for foreigners.
Turkey is the most experienced country in the world in getting dressed. Perhaps this is conditioned by its low cost which is limited by interprofessional salaries much lower than those of other countries and also by the aid granted by the Turkish government to increase this type of tourism.
Low prices are not a symptom of low quality because, as we mentioned before, the professionals who work in this sector are more than guaranteed, especially for their great experience. Only in hair implants, it is estimated that in Turkey there are some 250 accredited clinics and hospitals.
This type of tourism boosted the creation of companies whose objective is to sell “all-inclusive” packs and also offer a greater guarantee and reliability since, despite the professionalism of the sector, there is also the scam in the so-called black market in surgery. hair transplants, which are dedicated to this type of operation, but performed by people who do not have a medical degree.
The pack we offer at Diamond Hair Clinic includes:
All this for much less than half of what is worth in Europe.
Diamond Hair Clinic has its own clinic in Turkey to perform hair transplants and with an experience of more than 10 years.
Hair transplant with FUE method is the one that guarantees the best results, since in a single session it is possible to repopulate practically the entire depopulated area. It does not leave scars and in 2 weeks there is no visibility of the extraction in the donor area.
After analyzing the follicle meticulously and checking its viability, the hair follicle is extracted (with local anesthesia) from the areas of the lateral and posterior parts of the patient’s scalp. The second part is where the follicles are implanted (this is done taking into account the orientation of hair growth) in the recipient areas, that is, in parts with bald or sparse hair, which will evolve in alopecic areas. The surgery usually lasts from 5 to 9 hours, depending on the number of follicles to be transplanted
The postoperative period is less painful than with other techniques as well as less invasive, a much more natural appearance and for life as the follicles grow stronger.
Over the months, the grafted hair will grow regularly until it reaches a natural appearance. To accelerate the process, they usually advise additional treatments to improve the quality of the hair.
As in any surgery, the postoperative advice is essential for a good result and is 50% of the success of the hair transplant
The answer is no, since the hair follicle is obtained from the posterior and lateral areas of the head and genetically programmed to continue growing for life, since they have hormone receptors that are not affected by the enzymatic action that is responsible for the premature hair loss (alopecia areata).
