    Every single hair transplant procedure is unique and has to be customized to the individual needs of each patient. The patient’s personal wishes are the main aspects taken into consideration for our consultation. During the personal consultation the surgeon, together with the client, will decide how many grafts will be needed in order to achieve the desired outcome. Therefore, the costs of hair transplant procedures in Turkey depend largely on the number of grafts used and the type of procedure chosen, be it FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) or FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction).

    Services offered by our hair transplant clinic in Turkey

    Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE): it is a modern hair transplant technique through which our clients can regain their natural look, without leaving any visible scars and with a highly successful rate. This procedure consists of harvesting approximately 4,000 separate follicular units from the posterior scalp and transplanting every single one of them with care where necessary, in accordance with each person’s density and pattern. The main advantages of opting for such a procedure in this country are the high-quality medical services offered here and the affordable hair transplant costs in Turkey.

    The FUE technique offers natural results and an important advantage is that it can be used to transplant hair to a number of different areas. Our Turkey hair transplant experts list the situations in which this procedure can be successfully implemented: 

    • Beard & Moustache Transplants: we provide customized facial hair transplants. At our clinic, we can either execute a beard or mustache operation on extremely small areas of the skin or we can assist you with a denser facial hair transplant. We generally use the FUE method for facial hair transplants, and the results are permanent and natural-looking.
    •  Eyebrow Transplants: our hair transplant physicians in Turkey utilize the FUE method in order to effectuate this type of hair restoration. Follicular units are extracted from the scalp and then transplanted on the eyebrow area. These procedures are extremely artistic, the eyebrow being shaped individually based on the patient’s unique facial type and features;
    • Eyelash Hair Transplants: these are more recent procedures during which the eyelid lashes are permanently restored. The hairs are transplanted on the eyelids after being generally harvested from the scalp. Eyelash hair transplants render a completely natural result since the hairs are transplanted one by one;
    • Ethnic Hair Transplants: our experienced doctors utilize hair restoration techniques that are tailored to meet our patients’ specific needs depending on their ethnical backgrounds. These methods are able to render extremely natural-looking, successful and safe outcomes, for patients who have specific characteristics based on their ethnicity. The main ethnical groups are comprised of the African American, Indian, Hispanic, Asian, etc.;
    • Scar repair: The FUE technique is applied in order to conceal large scars resulting from old strip procedures or more surgeries. The large scars will be minimized or concealed, so that the patient can wear his or her hair shorter than before. This surgery requires harvesting hairs from the scalp or body and then transplanting them to the scarred area;
    • Hair Mesotherapy: it is a method that encourages the growth of your natural hair;
    • Platelet-rich plasma therapy: it is an advanced procedure for hair regeneration after a hair transplant. It is safe and non-surgical and it is used successfully to relieve pain and fasten the healing process. Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is comprised of many growing elements that stimulate the growth of the hair follicles after a transplant;
    • Hair Loss Treatments: we provide treatments for hair loss and hair shaft problems, as well as scalp disorders.

    As mentioned above, the doctors working at our modern clinic in Turley can assist you with more than hair transplants. You can confidently reach out to the experts at our hair transplant clinic in Istanbul for beard and mustache transplantsand eyelash and eyebrow transplants.

    The prices for such procedures are relatively low because of the small number of grafts required. These can start at a few hundred euros or dollars, which is why they have become very popular.

    The doctors at our Turkey hair transplant clinic can help you achieve the look you desire by rebuilding the form and density of the beard or mustache as well as the eyebrows. You can also rely on us for restorative hair transplant operations such as FUE scar repair if you have suffered an accident that caused hair loss. If you are wondering how much is a hair transplant in Turkey​, our experts can send you a personalized offer.

    How much does a hair transplant cost in Turkey​?

    The most important aspect to consider in a hair transplant is the number of grafts required. Given the unique pattern of each individual, during the consult, the surgeon will be able to assess the number of grafts required.

    The average price of a hair transplant operation in Turkey is about USD 2,500. Although it’s important to understand that the exact price depends on the number of grafts, we can say that over 80% of our patients do not exceed this amount for a hair transplant.

    Hair transplant costs are very much dependant on the method. The Follicular Unit Extraction and the Follicular Unit Transplantation are two of the most modern and employed technologies in our clinic in Turkey. These are also the most sought by patients and have relatively low costs compared to the results. The patient will decide together with the surgeon on the best approach.

    Apart from the hair restoration procedure costs, other costs should also be included. Among these are the travel costs, if the patient comes from another country.

    The travel expenses will depend on the country the patient comes from, however, it is good to know that Turkey has a great geographical location and it is easy to reach from, basically, every corner of the world, no matter if you come from Europe, Asia or even North or South America.

    The accommodation expenses will then need to be considered. Patients can rest assured that Turkey is one of the most famous tourist destinations in the world precisely for the low accommodation prices while having some of the best conditions.

    We recommend planning your hair transplant trip in advance so that you can benefit from lower prices or even flight or accommodation deals, where applicable.

    Hair transplant costs in Turkey vs. UK/USA                                                        

    Generally, the costs of hair transplant in Turkey  average from 1.25 $/ 0.98 £/ 1.17 €  per graft :                                            

    • USD 2,500 for 2,000 grafts or GBP 1,960 / EUR 2,340;
    • USD 3,750 for 3,000 grafts or GBP 2,940 / EUR 3,510;
    • USD 6,250 for 5,000 grafts or GBP 4,900 / EUR 5,850.

    Our hair clinic in Istanbul has even lower costs for a FUE hair transplant with up to 4,500 grafts. We present our costs in more detail below.

    However, the costs of a similar procedure in other countries can range from:   

    • in the U.K. 8,000 to 20,000 £, allowing you to save 6,040 £ or more with a hair transplant in Turkey;
    • in the U.S. 12,000 – 30.000 $, allowing you to save 9,500 $ or more if you choose Turkey to perform the hair transplant procedure.

    In New York, you can expect clinics to charge 6-8$ per graft for FUE. This means that the procedure could cost 12,000$ for 2,000 grafts, and even 30,000$ if 5,000 grafts are needed to achieve the desired look.

    If you want to know how much a hair transplant costs in Turkey​ compared to the UK and US, please see the infographic below: 

    As previously stated, the prices of FUE hair transplant procedures are general, as they greatly depend on the complexity of the surgery, the number of grafts that are used, and the hair transplant method utilized.

    The FUE and the FUT methods have different prices, the higher price being that of the FUE technique because this one is more complex and the patient may need several days of treatment, depending on his needs.

    Hair transplant costs at our clinic in Turkey

    Our team uses a FUE hair transplant price calculation method that is client-oriented and allows our patients to obtain satisfactory results even with one follicular unit extraction transplant session. We detail our 2024 prices below:

    • our price for a FUE hair transplant has a fixed cost of USD 2,125 for up to 4,500 grafts;
    • if the patient requires a second procedure/session to achieve the desired results (i.e., more than 4,500 grafts), we perform an additional session of USD 850.

    Moreover, our clinic uses the same advantageous price for two other popular methods, the DHI hair transplant and the FUE sapphire hair transplant, with the same price for the second session if this is required to achieve the results.

    Some of our other prices include:

    • USD 1,487 for a DHI eyebrow transplant or a DHI beard hair transplant;
    • USD 85 for laser therapy or for a PRP hair injection.

    Factors that can influence the cost of a hair transplant in Turkey

    As mentioned above, the initial consult is the first pre-operatory stage in hair transplant because, during this consultation, the surgeon can gather information about the patient’s condition, medical history, how severe the hair loss is, the procedure that will be used to complete the hair transplant and the estimative number of grafts needed. All these factors will lead to an estimation of the hair transplant cost in our clinic in Istanbul.

    When it comes to the factors that can influence the final price of the hair transplant, it is worth taking into account various aspects. Among these, how severe the condition of the patient is or the area in which the transplant will take place. We have a cost estimator in which future patients can introduce various data and find out the approximate cost of the hair transplant.

    Then, the procedure to be used on the patient is of high importance. The two most important and popular techniques used in a hair transplant in our clinic in Istanbul are the Follicular Unit Extraction – FUE – and the Follicular Unit Transplantation – FUT. 

    According to research published by the US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health, there are several differences between the FUE and FUT methods. The study revealed that the time in which the doctor operates on the patient is lower during the FUT procedure (10 to 30%) compared to 80-90% in the case of the FUE method, which will have a direct impact on the cost of the hair transplant.

    Also, stitching is required in the case of FUT hair transplant compared to the FUE procedure. In terms of healing, the donor area will heal in around 7 days in the case of the FUE hair transplant compared to 2 to 3 weeks in the case of a procedure involving the FUT method. The healing of the recipient area, however, can take up to 14 days in the case of both procedures. Another similarity between the FUE and FUT procedures is that they both offer the same natural-looking results.

    If you have any preference in terms of the procedure to be employed by our hair transplant surgeons in Turkey, we encourage you to talk to us and let us know your options. In case the procedure you want does not suit your needs, our surgeons will take you through other methods that are more appropriate.

    Other important factors that are usually not considered by our patients are those related to transportation and accommodation. While most of our packages include these costs too, some patients prefer to come on their own or to have the hair transplant as part of a touristic package. This is why we want to draw the attention of patients to carefully consider these costs when booking a trip for a hair transplant in Turkey.

    In our hair transplant clinic in Istanbul, we have services that suit every patient’s needs and financial resources. Moreover, we can personalize each package in accordance with the patient’s preferences.

    In case you want to know how much is a hair transplant in Turkey​, our team invites you to watch a short video on the general costs associated with hair transplants in Turkey:

    How the hair transplant cost in Turkey is calculated

    The table below details the seven most important factors used to determine the final cost of a hair restoration procedure in Turkey:

    TechniqueThe FUE and the FUT method are priced differently because the first one is more complex.
    Hair loss gradeThe higher the hair loss grade, the more coverage will be needed and thus the overall costs will grow.
    Density to be achievedA fuller hair, as opposed to a simple camouflage of the bald spots, will imply a different number of grafts and will cost more.
    Number of graftsFrom 1000 grafts to 2000 and even 3000 grafts, this is the primary factor that determines the costs of the surgery and can be estimated after an initial consultation.
    The doctor performing the procedureThe team is an experienced one, however, we work with different doctors and those with a higher level of experience will charge more for a standard procedure.
    The extra medical costsThis does not include the standard medication but rather the special solutions that are used to preserve the collected hair follicles.
    The locationOur hospitals are modern and fully equipped, however, the costs associated with the location will vary from one hospital to another and will depend on the size of the operating room.

    Other costs associated with a hair transplant in Turkey

    Apart from the actual costs of the hair restoration procedure, a patient will also need to consider additional costs, such as the post-operatory procedures. Even if these are not imposed, they are often recommendations of our surgeons. Also, these depend on the patient’s state after the operation, the procedure used, and even the number of grafts and the area where the transplant was made.

    Among these, the medication used during the recovery period is essential, this is why our surgeons will most likely recommend patient-specific ointments and creams for the transplanted grafts. It is also common for doctors to recommend antibiotics in order to prevent infections. It is important to know that patients can develop infections, which is why taking all the medicines prescribed by the doctor is essential, otherwise, the effect of the hair transplant could not be the one expected.

    Those who decide to undertake a hair transplant in Turkey should also consider other facts, for example, the hair transplant could require alternative treatments, such as mesotherapy or even micro-pigmentation in order to obtain natural-looking results. These are two of the most common procedures completed by our hair transplant doctors in Istanbul.

    In certain cases, medication and special ointments, shampoo, and products are recommended, therefore patients should also include these on their list with costs associated with a hair transplant.

    In certain cases, the doctor can also prescribe various types of painkillers. These can also be bought without any prescription; however, it is best to consult a doctor before taking any. 

    What are the cost differences between FUE and FUT in Turkey?

    Even if other procedures are available and can be used, the FUE and FUT methods are the most renowned and safest ones at a worldwide level which is why we also use them in our clinic in Istanbul. The cost of a hair transplant in Turkey will be impacted the most by the procedure used and the number of grafts required. While the average cost of a hair transplant through the FUE method can be around 2,500 euros, that of a transplant using the FUT technology can be a few hundred euros cheaper. The cost difference is not very important though when considering the lifetime benefits.

    The reason why FUE costs in Turkey are lower than in other countries is not related to the quality of the services – on the contrary. However, if the costs in other countries seem comparable to those in Turkey at first glance, we advise patients to be mindful of the fact that some clinics do not specify which technique is used. At our clinic, as well as for clinics around the world, the costs vary between the two techniques. Our team will make sure that you are presented with the costs for the procedure you choose upfront.

    You can read more about the reasons why Turkey has lower costs for all hair transplant procedure types below.

    Why are the prices for hair transplants lower in Turkey?

    Turkey is the leading country worldwide in terms of hair transplant surgeries. About 1 million foreigners arrived in Turkey in 2022 to get hair transplants. It was estimated that patients spent approximately $2 billion on these types of procedures alone (not counting the revenue received from other popular medical tourism procedures). 

    Foreigners are coming to Turkey for affordable hair transplant costs but also for its experienced surgeons and modern procedures and equipment. So why are hair transplant prices so affordable in Turkey?

    The hair transplant procedure prices in Western European countries and the U.S. are influenced by administrative prices, insurance contracts, and mostly labor costs. According to a recent report by the World Health Organization, more than 70% of medical costs are driven up by labor. Here is the main reason why the expenses for a hair transplant in Turkey are much lower than in other more developed countries. 

    At our clinic in Turkey, we provide complete treatment plans with lifelong natural results for patients who have been suffering from the effects of hair loss for too long.  The safety of the procedure is ensured by the use of modern equipment that allows for the sampling of follicles with a high-density ratio. Success is our primary concern, our surgeons have a proven track record of successful hair transplants. The quality of the services does not mean that our hair transplant prices in Turkey are high. On the contrary, we offer high-quality services to patients around the world, at more affordable prices compared to many countries in the EU, the United States, or the Middle East.

    Services included in a hair transplant procedure in Turkey

    Our experts offer full-service hair transplant options. Here is a look at what we offer to all of our clients:

    • Post-surgery medication: the medications, such as painkillers or antibiotics if needed are included after the procedure.
    • Post-surgery treatment: special shampoos and lotions, a special pillowcase, and a protective hat are included.
    • Airport-hotel-clinic transfers: we will handle all of the needed transfers to/from the airport and the hotel and from the hotel to the clinic for our patients.
    • Accommodation: two night’s accommodation at a hotel located very close to the clinic where the procedure will take place.

    • Translator: although our doctors in Turkey are fluent in English, this is an optional service, should our patients require a translator for their native language.

    What’s more, our hair restoration experts in Turkey can offer a complimentary platelet-rich plasma hair restoration treatment that will promote hair restoration and growth. The procedure is a simple one that will involve a standard blood draw, followed by a simple injection into the scalp, with minimal discomfort.

    As you can see, our hair transplant clinic in Istanbul includes a wide range of services in our hair transplant packages. While some of these are fixed, others can be personalized on a case-by-case basis and, more importantly, as our experienced doctor sees fit for each patient.  

    Our aim is to provide quality medical services that are completely satisfactory to our clients. This is why we offer personalized packages (please read below for more information), and it is also the reason why we focus on the safety of the procedures and the patient’s overall response to the treatment.

    Why choose Turkey for a hair transplant operation?

    Turkey is one of the most spectacular countries in Europe from a tourist’s point of view, therefore a hair transplant procedure can be a great opportunity of exploring some of the most appreciated historic sites of this country, especially when considering that a hair transplant is usually a mild and minimally invasive procedure. The specialized doctors, the modern techniques, the high-quality standards, and the affordable accommodation costs have transformed Turkey into one of the top hair transplant destinations in the world.

    At first, it was plastic surgery that attracted patients to Turkey; later on, more and more branches of medical tourism developed, and now, Turkey is one of the most important countries on the map of hair transplant surgeries in the world.

    Turkey is known for the medical tourism industry, therefore foreign patients can purchase such packages which can include the hotel accommodations and the hair transplant operation followed by a well-deserved vacation, all at the costs that could only imply the hair transplant procedure or even less in other countries. Lower hair transplant prices in Turkey are not the equivalent of low quality. In fact, the contrary applies to Turkey. The country managed to unite a set of characteristics, referring to labor costs, the costs of starting a business, and others that have been favorable for the development of the medical tourism sector in general. 

    We invite you to come to our clinic in Turkey and select the best hair transplant procedure for your needs. 

    In case you are wondering how much is a hair transplant in Turkey and want to receive a price offer for a hair transplant in our clinic, please send us an e-mail together with three pictures of your hair (frontal, from the back, and profile) at office@hair-transplant-turkey.org
