Introduction

Losing hair is inevitable as men transition into middle age. Hair loss is a source of physical and emotional stress for these men, who then will go to any lengths to get their full heads of luscious hair back which leads them to consider options for hair restoration like hair transplantation which can be costly. But there are pockets of the world, like Turkey, where the men do not have to break the bank to get their hair back. 

Recently Turkey has been a favorite destination for medical tourism and hair transplants in particular because their prices are affordable and they provide exceptional care to their clients. 

Comparing Hair Transplant Costs 

In the United States, the average cost of a hair transplant depends on the amount of hair being moved and it ranges from $4000 to $15,000 and it is not usually covered by insurance, which means that the client has to pay out of pocket. Hair transplant costs around £4000 to £20,000 in the United Kingdom on average, with higher costs being recorded. 

In contrast, the average cost of getting a  hair transplant in Turkey is about $2550 to $8000, which is about 50-60% of the cost of getting a transplant in the United States. 

Why are hair transplant costs in Turkey cheaper, you ask? 

This is because of the currency balance between the Turkish Lira and Pounds, USD, and Euros and the lower cost of living and the lower cost of medical services obtainable in Turkey.

Where can you get quality hair transplants in Turkey? 

With all this information, I expect that potential clients are counting their money and trying to book tickets to come to Turkey as fast as possible. At this point, it is prudent to halt and take stock. Hair transplant procedures are delicate and should be done with the maximum amount of care and attention. How do you ensure that this is done? By picking the best clinic for your procedure.

Dr. Acar during a consultation with a patient

The Sapphire DHI method is the best method for hair transplants because it is the world's leading hair transplant technique. It was developed by Dr Levant Acar and its advantages include: 

  • Extremely precise incisions

  • 360° protection: Sapphire DHI Implantation provides full protection for hair grafts during transplantation

  • Accelerated healing process: Smaller incisions heal faster, hurt less and have a lower risk of infection.

  • Natural and better hair density

  • 99% graft success

Dr Acar also developed an instrument known as the RoboPen, designed to give the surgeon precise control over linear motion, depth, force, speed, angle, and counting of the incisions and shortening the time used in the incisions process of the transplant. It is the world's first automated and handheld incision device. 

The before and after results of previous clients of the clinic are nothing short of miraculous, as various dimensions of hair loss have been treated and heads of hair restored to their original lustre and shine. Every head treated by Cosmedica is healthy, lustrous and luscious.
