Are you planning to have a hair implant, but you still have many questions, and it seems hard to decide? Hair transplant in Uk? or Hair Transplant in Turkey? What to do, where to go? We did all the research for you, and we will expose all the differences between the treatments in both countries so we can help you to decide wisely.
Quality of Hair Transplant in the UK vs. Quality of Hair Transplant in Turkey
Turkey is a top destination for medical tourism because of the excellent results of hair transplantation. In many cases, the quality of the treatment in Istanbul exceeds the expectations of the patients.
Years ago, Turkey started attracting thousands of patients for medical purposes such as plastic surgeries or hair implants. The surgeons, trichologists, and other medical specialists become the best in the world at performing hundreds of hair transplant surgeries, changing people’s lives from all over the world. Medical specialists from Turkey treated more patients than any of their colleagues in other countries in Europe or the UK. This is one of the main reasons they became top-notch experts in this field, working efficiently and achieving the best results.
Clinics who offer hair transplant in the UK started opening their doors not a long ago. As prices in the UK can be 5 times more than the cost in Turkey, not many patients have decided to get their hair back in the UK. Therefore, the surgeons and trichologists have less experience, and their results can be unnatural while you pay five times more than in Istanbul.
Price of Hair Transplant in the UK vs. Price of Hair Implants in Turkey
The price of a Hair Transplant in Turkey is lower than in the UK for some reasons:
- Cost of labour in Turkey is lower than in the UK and other countries of Europe and USA.
- Operation fees are cheaper than in the UK.
- Turkish Government subsidizes medical companies to implant the newest technologies to achieve the best possible results for patients and incentivizes medical tourism.
- The competition between hundreds of clinics makes Turkey a cheaper hair transplant destination.
- The travel and stay in Istanbul are not expensive at all.
Benefits of a Hair Transplant in Turkey
Traveling to Turkey for hair transplantation has a lot of benefits when we compare it to a hair transplant in the UK. In Turkey, you will be treated by a world-class doctor with years of experience in the hair implantation field. After performing hundreds of surgeries on patients worldwide, the medical team can achieve better results than medical teams in clinics from the UK.
Most of the clinics in Turkey have received awards and recognition from international associations because of their good practices and services.
At last, you will get to discover a magnificent city with all its monuments, traditions and gastronomy.
Travel Cost for Hair Transplantation in Turkey
Travel costs for hair transplantation in Turkey are affordable. This is one reason why most of the patients decide to add a few more days before or after the treatment to enjoy the beauty of Turkey and Istanbul.
At MCAN Health Clinic, we offer all-inclusive packages with the treatment, accommodation in 4- or 5-stars hotels, VIP transfers around the city, medicines, and 24/4 English-speaking patient host. The patient had to add the flight ticket price, which is usually around €200-300 round-trip. And, if the patient wants even to feel more secure, it is possible to add extra travel insurance.
Make your numbers. Hair Transplant in Turkey, with all the travel costs included, is always cheaper than a hair implant in a clinic in the UK.
Covid-19 Precautions in Turkey and in the UK
Covid-19 is a concern for all of us. Since the Covid-19 pandemic started, Turkey is taking all the necessary actions. During all these months, both the Turkish Government and clinics are taking strict measures to ensure the safety of all the patients, employees, and medical teams.
To travel to Turkey, you will need a negative PCR test before boarding your flight. At your arrival in the airport, there can be a fever measurement to make sure no one presents any Covid-19 symptoms. After the treatment and before flying back home, every patient needs another negative PCR test.
