Turkey is Leader in Hair Implant
Turkey, is the favorite country in the eyes of foreign tourists not only for medical surgeries field, but also for hair transplantation and aesthetic operations.
According to medical tourism data, 60,000 people came to Turkey for transplantation in 2016, and for medical tourism. For this purpose, Turkey hosts tourists from all over the world particularly from Italy, Greece, Russia, Saudi Arabia, England and Kuwait.
So, What Are The Factors Converting Turkey To Be A Leader Position In Hair Transplantation?
The reasons that make Turkey treatment more successful in hair transplantation treatment than other countries are low prices, technological possibilities and levels of expertise.
While hair transplantation price in Turkey is around £ 5000, the same transaction that is in progress in the United States costs for 20,000$-30,000$. So namely, a person experiencing hair loss problems in the US, makes a trip to Turkey instead of having this operation in his own country and thus he both receives treatment and plus makes a one-month stay and sight-see then he returns home. When you add the treatment he receives in Turkey, accomodation and travelling costs, it still becomes more cost-effective than the ones from their own country.
Today, many European companies organize medical tours in various cities, especially in Istanbul. People who come for treatment in the scope of medical tourism also stay for a while and have the opportunity to visit and enjoy the city. Besides, they find a chance to follow closely the surgeons they receive treatment.
