5000 Grafts Hair Transplant Story: From A-Z

5000 Grafts Hair Transplant Story: From A-Z

Three years ago the following patient had a 5000 grafts hair transplant at our clinic. He is in his mid-30s and works as a Sales and Marketing Manager. He first realized his hair was falling when he was around 21 years old. However, at that time he wasn’t aware of how far his hair loss was gonna get over time.

After he turned 25, his hair loss was accelerated and almost the entire scalp was thinning. He tried many topical treatments to stop hair loss but none of the medications gave him significant permanent results. He realized it was just a waste of time and money.

Why is a Hair Transplant a Good Option?

As a Sales and Marketing Manager baldness was affecting his life on a personal and professional level. He noticed the look on his customers' faces when they see how fast his hair loss was noticeably advancing.
As a result, he took a decision to seriously look into permanent ways of restoring his hair.

As he explains, ‘’When I was scrolling through Google, to my surprise I found that hair transplant operation was the solution to end my suffering’’. " Results were looking so natural and permanent and that's what I was looking for", he adds. 

‘’I saw many people that had shared their stories about baldness and many of them underwent a hair transplant. They've got amazing results some with 3000 grafts of hair transplant, 4000 grafts or 5000 grafts hair transplant ’’.

‘’With no hesitations, I began to search for getting a hair transplant in Turkey. Since many people recommend the quality of the Turkish hair transplant industry where cost is the best ’’.

‘’One of my colleague’s cousins had a hair transplant at one of the best clinics in Istanbul: Avrupa Sac Ekimi Clinic.
I immediately contacted them to give me a 
quote for my case’’.

‘’They shared with me similar cases with brilliant results, therefore, I was so excited to schedule an appointment with them’’.

‘’When I arrived at the clinic everyone was very welcoming and friendly. I met with the hair transplant specialist Mehmet Guclu who walked me through all the steps of the surgery’’.

‘’He told me that they will be able to transplant 5000 grafts in a single hair transplant session. Honestly, I was afraid that 5000 grafts hair transplant cost would be very high but he reassured me that the cost won’t increase’’.

5000 Grafts Hair Transplant Day

The Procedure: 
After designing the hairline and shaving his hair, our patient was taken to the operating room. The operation lasted for about 7 hours. The day following the operation the patient came to the clinic to remove the bandage

On the 3rd day after the hair transplant, he made his last visit to have instructions about washing newly transplanted hair. When he left the clinic he was so happy and looking forward to seeing his results soon.  

How much does a 5000 grafts hair transplant cost at Avrupa Sac Ekimi clinic?

At our clinic, 5000 grafts hair transplant cost is generally between 2200 USD and 2700 USD all-inclusive. All of our packages include accommodation, transportation, and all the necessary blood tests and medications.

What is the Cost of a 5000 Grafts Hair Transplant Cost in General?

The cost of a 5000 grafts hair transplant can range from 2000 to 16000 USD depending on the following factors:

  1. Country you are in: A hair transplant can be a very costly operation in places, such as Europe and North America, especially since it's not covered by health insurance and is a long labor-intensive operation. This is why many people travel to famous destinations such as Turkey to get the same operation for a fraction of the price.
  2. Method used: Wherever you are in the world, you will notice variations in the cost of hair transplant based on the method used. For instance, some methods require longer hours of work, others require expensive tools.
  3. Qualifications/Experience of the surgeon: The experience & qualifications of the surgeon can also lead to a higher cost.

How Much Does 5000 Grafts Hair Transplant Cost in Turkey VS. other countries?

Generally speaking, a 5000 grafts hair transplant in Turkey costs between 2000$ and 4000$. It is no surprise that the cost of hair transplants in Turkey is much more affordable than in other places in the world. In the UK and the US usually surgeons charge per graft which will make a 5000 grafts hair transplant very costly. 

On the other hand, Turkey hair transplant packages are very common and most  hair transplant clinics offer the cost on an all-inclusive package basis. This means that there is a fixed price for the most common range of grafts (generally between 2000 and 5500 grafts) and they just implant the maximum possible for each case up to that number.  

The cost of a 5000 grafts hair transplantation can also vary based on the method used. For example, DHI requires at least 3 people working at all times on the patient, and for a big number of grafts such as 5000,  it would also require longer hours than FUE or Sapphire. So DHI costs significantly more than other methods. 

Hair Transplant Method Cost in TurkeyCost in the UK  Cost in the US Cost in Europe 
FUE2200 to 30005000 to 12000 11000 to 160005000 to 8000
DHI2700 to 400010000 to 1400013000 to 140007000 to 16000
Sapphire 2500 to 34006000 to 1300011500  to 17006000 to 9900

Can anyone have a 5000 Grafts Hair Transplant?

However, not every case qualifies for a 5000 grafts hair transplant known as the 'Mega Session', because there are certain conditions that are not suitable for transplanting this number. 

In order to qualify for the mega session, the patient must be in good health, and the donor area at the back of the scalp should be very dense. Always remember, it's the hair transplant doctor's decision to determine the eligibility of the patient to undergo a mega session.

Post 5000 grafts Hair Transplant care tips and suggestions

Following his hair transplant surgery this patient followed a few steps to stimulate hair growth and get the best results possible from his operation. Starting the second month after the surgery he started using the following products:

Minoxidil: Minoxidil is typically used by people even if they didn't undergo a hair transplant procedure. It is a topical solution that is widely prescribed for Male Pattern Baldness, or for thinning hair in women (naturally or after giving birth). in the case of hair transplant patients, it is sometimes advised to use  Minoxidil in the period between the second and sixth month, as it is the period when the newly transplanted hair follicles are growing.

Vitamin B Shampoo: Using a vitamin B-enriched shampoo is an extra step in caring for your transplanted hair. It doesn't give a dramatic change but it can be very beneficial in nourishing the newly transplanted hair grafts. We do give a mild, gentle shampoo to be used daily for the first two weeks, but after that, you can move to the Biotin-rich shampoo.
