The Cost of Hair Transplantation in Turkey: Dr Serkan Aygin Clinicby Dr Serkan Aygin Clinic Top hair transplant clinic, Turkey
Over the past ten years, hair transplantation has become one of the most successful business areas in the Turkish medical and cosmetic sector. Hair transplants in Turkey are continually growing in popularity, especially among foreign medical tourists as the number one ‘go-to destination’ for hair transplant operations. It is likely that Turkey will continue to attract more and more international patients in the following years to come.
This rise in popularity of travelling to Turkey to undergo a hair transplant procedure can be mainly attributed to the top-quality and cost-effectiveness of the hair transplant services offered. Considering that there are around 350 hair transplant clinics only in Istanbul, the competitive prices offered by Turkish hair transplant clinics is not surprising. In fact, the favourable prices in Turkey only amount to a small portion of the cost of undergoing a hair transplant procedure in Europe or the US. Reducing the price and offering the best conditions at the highest quality is the simplest way to attract medical tourists to Turkey. As a result, Turkish hair transplant clinics have developed an ‘all-inclusive treatment package’ system, which helps medical tourists to receive a full set of services at once and to save money.
The Costs in the USA & UK vs.Turkey
In the USA the price for only undergoing a hair transplant procedure- without any additional services or special deals offered-ranges between $7,000 to $18,000, while in the UK the costs range between $4,000 to $20,000.The higher costs are generally due to the high labour costs as well as high taxes and with the expenses of the treatment not being covered by the insurance, it is natural for medical tourists to prefer the affordable hair transplant prices offered in Turkey.
A mistake most patients tend to make when considering travelling to Turkey to receive treatment such as hair transplantation is that they associate low costs with poor quality. Low costs are not an indicator of poor quality. Low prices are mostly due to the economy, purchase-power-parity differences and a devalued lira to dollar/euro ratio, as opposed to a reflection of low quality. The cost-efficiency can also be attributed to the ‘all-inclusive packages’ offered by most of the hair transplant clinics for international patients.
Although the costs vary across the different hair transplant clinics in Turkey-
based on the quality of the medical services, the level of experience and specialization, the techniques applied and the medical instruments used, an estimation of the general average cost of a FUE hair transplant can be said to range from around $2,500 to $4,000.
In the UK and the US, the cost is generally based on the number of grafts to be transplanted, with the hair transplant consultation mostly offered at a fee. Most of the hair transplant clinics in Turkey do not employ this pricing system. The cost, which is generally incorporated within a special treatment package, will generally include the maximum number of grafts that can be transplanted in one session-which may vary between 3,000 to 4,000 grafts, depending on the hair transplant clinic. A private consultation session held with a hair transplant surgeon generally does not come with an extra expense. In fact, Dr Serkan Aygin offers free consultations.
In terms of hair transplant methods, there only may be a slight price difference between the Soft FUE conducted with fine Sapphire blades and the DHI technique, with the DHI being a little more expensive. DHI is a meticulous method that requires more skill and experience than other hair transplant methods. This in turn, requires the medical teams to be exposed to long-term training so as to specialize in this technique.
All-Inclusive Packages & the Services Offered
An ‘All-Inclusive Package’ is a set of special services that the hair transplant clinic provides for the patient's needs. One of the advantages of the all-inclusive package is that the price incorporates all types of services that international patients require during their trip to Turkey. With all-inclusive packages, international patients do not need to worry about treatment or hotel arrangements.
