Furthermore, the interest and investment of the National Government in the health sector increased over the past two decades, promoting activities for health tourism.

Why are hair transplants cheaper in Turkey?
People may think that due to the lower prices, the services offered in Turkey would be inevitably poor compared to other countries in Europe.
But, before drawing some conclusion, people should also consider several aspects:
Exchange rate differences
As the value of the Turkish lira is lower than the dollars and euros, the cost end expenses in Turkey are cheaper than in other countries. Currency exchange rates are one of the reasons why you can get excellent hair service in Turkey at very affordable prices.
The costs of many goods and medical services in Turkey are much cheaper than in the USA or other European countries. This results in medical procedures being accessible and affordable for everyone.
In Istanbul, there are hundreds of hair clinics, most of them are trying to gain more patients by offering more affordable prices and all-inclusive package services. Of course, chasing the lowest price is not always the best decision, even in Turkey a price too low can hide some inconveniences, for this reason before planning your trip to Istanbul, please search the history clinic, read the reviews and comments of past patients and check the before and after pictures, to avoid mistrustful clinics.
What Affects the Hair Transplant Cost in Turkey
There are hundreds of clinics in Istanbul, and most of them are offering all-inclusive packages that include a complete set of services. Generally, Turkish clinics provide the following services:
Transfers airport/hotel/clinic Accommodation Personal Interpreter Hair transplant operation Post-operation service.
The Dr. Serkan Aygin Clinic offers a wide variety of services tailor-made to each client’s needs. The hair transplant surgeons specialize in performing both DHI and Sapphire FUE hair transplants. These two methods offer a quicker recovery to patients, as well as stunning long-term results.
Of course, the price list may differ based on the technique used and the number of sessions required by the patient (based on their bald patterns).
In the DHI transplant, the extracted follicles are directly inserted in the Choi implanter pen and placed under the skin without making incisions, minimizing the trauma and bleeding, while ensuring a faster recovery time.
However, the DHI cost per graft is more expensive compared to other techniques, due to the intensity of efforts and expertise required for a successful result.
Thanks to the Sapphire blades’ sharpness and antimicrobial component, the risk of complications such as scalp damage tissue, scarring, or infections are diminished. This innovative technic ensures higher density for patients with predominant hair loss, giving them a natural hair look.
The cost of a Sapphire FUE hair transplant may vary depending on the country where the operation is performed, the experience of the doctors, the hair transplant technique, and the number of sessions (based on the baldness pattern).
