Hair Transplant in Turkey for British Citizens

Hair Transplant in Turkey for British Citizens

People naturally feel safer getting medical treatments in their country rather than going abroad, and Brits are no different. 

You may find yourself asking why would I travel thousands of miles to a country I don’t know to get a hair transplant in Turkey. Here’s why:

There are so many factors that push many British people to opt for a hair transplant in Turkey, such as lower cost, more hair transplant options, the latest methods, and a beautiful country to visit. 

On this page, we cover the most frequent questions we get about hair transplant in Turkey from UK.

Is it safe for British Citizens to have a hair transplant in Turkey?

Turkey is a very touristic country. According to the General Manager of  Türkiye Tourism Promotion and Development Agency (TGA) Yalçın Lokmanhekim, in the first half of 2022 alone, Turkey welcomed over 26 million visitors from all over the world. 

This goes to show that it is a country well-equipped to receive and ensure the safety of tourists. 

Regarding the hair transplant surgery itself, as long as you select any of the hospitals/clinics certified by the Turkish ministry of health, you’ll have nothing to worry about in terms of medical risk. 

These clinics abide by the same medical standards you’re used to in the U.K. and have national and international certifications such as JCI and ISO. 

Is it Better to Get a Hair Transplant in UK or Turkey?

The price difference between hair transplants in Turkey versus the UK is one of the many factors, if not the main one, that encourages British people to get a hair transplant in Turkey. 

Although you can find qualified surgeons and high-quality medical care in both countries, in the United Kingdom it will come at a significantly higher cost. 

Especially that many of the best clinics are located at Harley Street in Central London, which hosts a big number of clinics and private specialists.

Price comparison of hair transplant in Turkey vs UK

A hair transplant in the UK is charged per hair graft and the cost varies from £2 - £‎ 5 per graft

For example, a 2000-graft hair transplant in the UK can cost between £4000 - £10,000. The cost will vary based on the location. While in Turkey, for the same number of hair grafts, it would cost less than £1700

In addition, Turkish clinics usually provide all-inclusive packages. 

That is to say, the previously mentioned 1700 GBP will most likely include accommodation, ground transportation, blood tests, and other necessary medical services and products.

**Prices in Turkey are all-inclusive and don't have a limited number of grafts. 

The maximum number of hair grafts is implanted in a single session, normally within the recommended range of up to 4500 or 5000 grafts. 

While in the United Kingdom it only includes the cost of the treatment and the total price is based on the cost per graft.

Do British Citizens need a visa to enter Turkey?

The great news is that British Citizens who are traveling to Turkey for tourist purposes for a period of 90 days do not need a visa.
