    Many people are quick to dismiss hair transplants in Turkey as an option, for fear of low medical standards and botched operations. But there is more than meets the eye. 


    Hair transplant in Turkey is much cheaper than in the U.S. for so many logical reasons, that once you learn, you will have a real ‘aha moment’. 


    Take a look at this article to find out everything there is to know about the cost of hair transplants in Turkey. 

        

    How much does a hair transplant cost in Turkey?

    The short answer is that the cost of a hair transplant in Turkey can range anywhere from $1400 to $4000, although the majority of clinics charge around the $2000 mark. 


    The cost is affected by various factors such as the method used, the number of grafts, and services included in the price. 


    This article will break down for you what affects the price and what to expect if you’re thinking about traveling to Turkey for a hair transplant. 


    What are the factors affecting the cost of hair transplants in Turkey?

    The factors that might generally affect the cost of your hair transplant in Turkey are the following:

    • Method: The most popular methods are: FUE, DHI, and Sapphire hair transplants. Some methods can cost slightly less or more (see table below)
    • Surgeon Participation: Some clinics started to offer separate packages for patients who want the surgeon to perform certain steps of the hair transplant himself, for example, channel opening or graft harvesting. The more work will be done by the surgeon himself the more the price increases. 
    • Package: common services included in hair transplant packages are accommodation and ground transportation. Less commonly included services are touristic tours and airfare. 
    • Clinic: Based on the reputation of the clinic and the type of facility they have, the price can be affected. 
    • The number of follicles: In the case of a few clinics that charge you per graft, the more you transplant the more expensive it gets. Most clinics, however, have a set price, regardless of the number of follicles. 
    • Patient’s medical history:  Patients with some pre-existing conditions such as HIV or Hepatitis are usually quoted higher prices. This is because most clinics don’t accept performing elective surgeries on HIV and hepatitis patients, and those who do have to take extra safety precautions to protect the medical team, which causes the price to increase.

    What are Hair Transplant Prices in Istanbul Turkey?

    All of Turkey’s hair transplant clinics are located in Istanbul, with the exception of maybe a dozen scattered around cities like Ankara, Antalya, and İzmir. Istanbul alone has over 400 clinics. 


    So, needless to say, that competition runs very high. This fierce competition has led many clinics to try to offer the best quality possible at the lowest cost possible.  


    The prices presented in the table above, for the most part, reflect the actual cost of hair transplants in Istanbul.

    Why is Hair Transplant Surgery in Turkey so Cheap?

    • Number of JCI-certified hospitals: There are over 44 JCI-accredited hospitals in Turkey, most of which are in Istanbul
    • The number of board-certified plastic surgeons: the high number of board-certified plastic surgeons in Turkey leads to availability and therefore competition.
    • Minimum wage: The minimum wage in Turkey, as of the present writing,  is less than 260 USD a month. 
    • Living cost:  The cost of living in Turkey (accommodation, rental, utility, and management costs) is much lower than in the U.S. or Canada, that’s what Turkish clinics are able to include so much in the packages they offer to tourists. 

    Does Low Cost Mean Low Quality?

    Low cost does not necessarily mean low quality when it comes to hair transplants in Turkey. 


    The factors mentioned above - low living costs and minimum wage and very high competition - contribute to the low cost of hair transplants in Turkey. 


    Having said that, there are instances in which patients have been taken advantage of, given false advertisements concerning pricing, or just had a terrible experience medically.

    What is an All-Inclusive Hair Transplant Package?

    In Turkey, all-inclusive hair transplant packages are very commonplace. 


    It’s usually a much better deal for first-time visitors to Turkey who prefer not to organize their own accommodation and transport. Hair transplant all-inclusive packages in turkey typically include the following:

    • The hair transplant operation (obviously)
    • Blood tests 

    • Medications & products prescribed after the transplant

    • Accommodation

    • Airport transfer

    • Transportation between the hotel & hospital


    Depending on the clinic there could be fewer or more services included in the package price. Make sure to ask about these details. 

    What are grafts, and how many do you need?

    The word graft designates a part of the organism removed in order to be grafted. In the case of a hair transplant, a graft is made up of a hair follicle.

    The hair follicle is a cavity located under the skin in which one or more hairs grow. Each graft contains 1-3 hairs. 

    The number of hairs the graft contains on average is the graft-hair ratio. The grafts can be taken from the whole body. 

    However, those on the back of the head are usually preferred because they are immune to androgenetic alopecia.

    The number of grafts to be transplanted is unique to each patient. There is therefore no ready-made answer to the question of the number of grafts needed for a transplant.

    To determine this, the surgeon takes into account several parameters, such as your hair density and the state of your baldness, for example.

     While a precise estimation requires thorough assessment, the Norwood scale is used to classify the extent of hair loss and can give a ballpark figure.
