The cost of a hair transplant greatly varies and depends on several factors. However, it is obvious that in Turkey, hair transplantation is cheaper in comparison to other countries, which allows a hair transplant clinic in Turkey to offer a hair transplant procedure at more affordable rates; with more quality and exceptional services. Some factors affecting the cost include:
Location: In areas where the cost of living is high, surgery costs may be greater. Competition also affects price, so places with relatively few hair transplant surgeons may be more expensive.
The amount of hair to be transplanted: It costs relatively more to increase hair over the entire scalp, rather than in just one or two small areas.
The hair transplant technique: There are two main hair transplant procedures defined as the DHI method (Direct Hair Implantation) and the FUE method (Follicular Unit Extraction). The cost of the hair transplant procedure will depend on which method has been selected.
The Doctors and the Clinic: Doctors who are experts in their field often charge more than others who are less qualified. At this point, patients must be so careful when it comes to choosing their clinic and doctor; as the result of their operation mostly depends on their experiences as well as qualifications.
Travel costs: Traveling to Turkey is relevantly less costly when compared to other countries-especially across Europe and the United States. Turkish Airlines offers discounts to patients traveling to Turkey for medical tourism purposes, and also considering that Turkey is located in such a geographical region where traveling by flight takes around 3-4 hours across Europe and the Middle East, this also attracts medical tourists to seek treatment, especially hair transplantation in Turkey.
