Hair Transplant in Turkey for Canadians

Hair Transplant in Turkey for Canadians

People naturally feel safer getting medical treatments in their country rather than going abroad, and Canadians 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 Canadians 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 Canada.

Is it safe for Canadians 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 Canada and have national and international certifications such as JCI and ISO. 

Hair transplant surgery: Turkey Vs Canada

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

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

Price comparison of hair transplant in Turkey vs Canda

Hair transplant in Canada is charged per hair graft and the cost varies from $2 - $8 per graft

For example, a 2000-graft hair transplant in Canada can cost between $4000 - $16000. The cost will vary based on the location. 

While in Turkey, for the same number of hair grafts, it would cost less than $2000

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

That is to say, the previously mentioned $2000 will most likely include accommodation, ground transportation, blood tests, and other necessary medical services and products.
