I was interested in a hair transplant. I contacted Vita Estetic for a consultation and spoke to their medical consultant that helped me decide on completing this transplant. I had great service from the time I arrived in Istanbul to the time I left the clinic. Everything was great and I enjoyed the stay there.

Rosaline, 17 July 2022

I had a very good experience with travel medi. In the beginning I was fearful of going all the way to turkey for my breast augmentation, but my travel coordinator Berat was wonderful, he answered all my questions promptly and he helped to turn my fear into excitement. Everything was very well organized from the transfers and hotel, to the pre and post op appointments to the surgery itself. The hotel location is excellent as everything you need is in walking distance and the area is one of the best and safest in Istanbul. Berat was always available if I had any questions, and I felt very looked after. Dr Esra Bilgen is very efficient and an excellent surgeon. She understood what I wanted immediately and she made recommendations according to her expertise. I felt that my surgery went very well, my results are amazing, and the pain has been very manageable with the medications prescribed. I did not even have any bruising with tells me that she is a very skilled and gentle surgeon. I definitely recommend travel medi, and if I ever have anything done in the future they will be my top choice.

I travelled from the UK to have a gastric sleeve two years ago and I honestly can say they were really amazing from start to finish. Also, they covered my flight tickets. It was the best decision going to Turkey and getting my surgery done by Dr Gungor Gul. Now I do feel better thanks to Sanamentum. I’m so grateful to the team, thank you so much.

Sandra, 20 December 2021

Recently I had Gastric Sleeve Surgery with Dr. Celik and his team and I would like to say a few things about the surgery and his team. I really had a hard time making a decision. I was 265 lb. A friend of mine told me that I could have Gastric Sleeve Surgery and I could get rid of excess weight. There were lots of questions in my mind; Where could I have the surgery? Who is the best surgeon for this kind of surgery? Is Turkey safe? What happens if there is a complication? blah blah.. After deep research and a long period of consideration, I decided to have the surgery with Dr.Celik. It was the best decision I've ever made in my life after marriage.

I underwent rhinoplasty in June 2019. My coordinator was Yasin, and my doctor was GĂĽrhan Ă–zcan, both were excellent from start to finish. My nose was very bad, it was incredibly squint, with a peak in the middle. While it is not perfect now, which would have been impossible, its much better than I could have expected. Im very happy with the result. I would definitely recommend the people and the hospital.

What you need to know about Hair Transplant in Istanbul

Hair Transplant Procedure to cover bald patches

Hair Transplantation, also known as hair restoration surgery, is the surgical process of moving hair follicles from one part of the body that is rich in hair (known as a donor site) and embedding them at the the bald area of the head (recipient site).

It is a minimally invasive procedure, performed under local anesthetic and is most commonly used to treat male baldness, but the technique can also be used to restore eyelashes, eyebrows, beard hair and to fill in scars. The procedure usually lasts between 4 to 8 hours, depending on the number of grafts needed.

While there are many causes of hair loss, the most common reason, especially for men, is genetics. Hereditary hair loss as men age is the number one leading factor of baldness.

MyMediTravel currently lists 71 facilities in Istanbul offering Hair Transplant procedures - see above for the complete list, along with estimated prices. The price of a Hair Transplant can vary according to each individual’s case and will be determined based on photos and an in-person assessment with the specialist.

What Does The Procedure Involve?

We lose an average of 100 hairs a day, however, these hairs are immediately replaced by new hairs growing at the same time. Hair loss can occur suddenly or gradually and it may affect your scalp or your entire body, depending on what’s causing it. Other causes of hair loss may include:

  • Stress - a lot of people may experience hair thinning for several months due to a physical or emotional shock. However, this type of hair loss is only temporary.
  • Certain Hairstyles and treatments - hairstyles that pull your hair like tight pigtails, ponytails or braids can actually cause traction alopecia. Permanent hair treatments and hot oil treatment may also lead to hair loss; these hair treatments cause inflammation to the hair follicles. If there is scarring, hair loss may be permanent.
  • Radiation Therapy - for example, during cancer treatment.
  • Certain medical conditions and hormonal changes - in women, hormonal changes due to pregnancy, childbirth menopause or thyroid problems may cause temporary or permanent hair loss. As for medical conditions, hair loss may be due to alopecia, scalp infections like ringworm or a hair-pulling disorder known as trichotillomania.

Sudden hair loss may also be a sign of a specific medical condition that will require treatment. You will need to consult your doctor if you experience more than your usual hair loss whenever you are combing or washing your hair and also if you encounter a sudden patchy loss of hair.

A hair transplant is a common treatment performed on people who are experiencing baldness due to aging and heredity factors. However, if you are completely bald with absolutely no hair left, then this type of treatment may not be applicable for you, as you won't have sufficient donor hair to supply.

The hair transplant procedure involves taking hair from your Donor Site and transferring it to the area(s) lacking in hair, the Recipient Site, and a local anesthetic will be applied before the procedure begins to limit any discomfort.

There are two main methods used in a hair transplant procedure:

  1. Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) - strips of tissue will be removed from your donor area, these strips will be cut into individual follicular units. Small cuts will be made on your scalp where the follicular unit grafts will be placed. This method is becoming less popular.
  2. Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) - individual hair follicles will be directly extracted from your donor area and moved to your recipient site using a specialist microsurgical needle. FUE is now the preferred technique for hair transplants as it will not leave a linear scar at the back of the head.

Procedures are undertaken by a fully qualified technician and usually involve the extraction of around 3,000 grafts, going up to 4,000. Any more, and it will likely require two separate sittings to complete.

How Long Should I Stay in Istanbul for a Hair Transplant Procedure?

Hair transplants are usually performed as an outpatient procedure. Thus, you will be able to go back to your hotel immediately after. Both methods used for Hair Transplant treatments usually take 4-8 hours to complete. With FUE technique, there are no stitches or staples to be removed, so you won't need to stay in Istanbul for long after the procedure, just allow a day or two to be sure before traveling home. 

You should expect to pay the clinic another visit the day after the treatment so the doctor can remove the bandage, examine the areas of intake and transplantation of follicles, before washing your hair using a special technique that you will learn to perform by yourself. Finally, the doctor will provide you with a special shampoo that will help to restore the skin.

What's the Recovery Time for Hair Transplant Procedures in Istanbul?

Your scalp will continue to be sensitive to pain for a few days, during which time you should continue to take the medications provided by the doctor. On top of the pain killers and anti-inflammatory meds, you may also be given antibiotics to lessen the risk of infection, as uncommon as this may be.

You should expect to return to work and your daily routine, including exercise, after 5 days. However, the signs of a hair transplant will remain for at least another 2-3 weeks, at which point the newly transplanted hairs will start to fall out - but don't be alarmed! This is to be expected as you've just had a follicle extraction, so dead hair will simply make way for new hair over the coming weeks and months.

If the average person's hair only grows at a centimeter per month, then it will take some time before you can wear your hair long again. You could expect to display short and consistent hair just 4-6 weeks after the treatment.

What sort of Aftercare is Required for Hair Transplant Procedures in Istanbul?

After the procedure is complete, anti-swelling medication and painkillers will be available and you'll be provided with various essentials to see you through the days immediately following. Post-op items may include; specialist shampoo, lotion, multivitamins, a special hat, a headband, neck pillow, and wound dressing.

Having already been provided with your post-op aftercare products, you may also be offered Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy to help stimulate the hair follicles and encourage hair growth. This is where a small amount of blood is taken, rich in plasma, which is then injected into the Recipient Site.

What's the Success Rate of Hair Transplant Procedures in Istanbul?

The success rate for hair transplants is one of the highest, at 98% and is considered the only truly effective remedy for hair loss. Scarring is the most common side effect but is only applicable to FUT. Other potential risks and side effects could include infections, temporary loss of sensation around the surgical sites, inflammation of hair follicles (folliculitis), temporary scalp pain, itching, and swelling.

Are there Alternatives to a Hair Transplant?

Laser therapy is one alternative to a hair transplant. During this procedure, a low-level laser device will be used as a treatment for a hair loss specifically caused by genetics. This low-level laser with a wavelength of 650 nanometres can actually stimulate your hair growth. However, long term effects for this type of alternative still remains uncertain.

PRP Therapy is another alternative you can consider. This type of treatment will make use of your own blood to promote hair growth. Your blood will be spun in a centrifuge to separate your blood’s plasma component from your red and white blood cells. Plasma contains many growth factors that promote hair growth when injected into the scalp.

Other non-surgical alternatives could include simply shaving all your hair off, trying other hairstyles or using a wig or hairpiece.

How do FUT and FUE Compare?

The two most common techniques used are the Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT) and the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE):

1. FUT, also referred to as FUSS (Follicular Unit Strip Surgery), involves the removal of a strip of skin from the back of the head containing lots of hair follicles, which is stitched up and hidden by the surrounding hair. Then the strip of follicles is divided into 500-2,000 tiny grafts containing just a few hairs. These are then embedded across the bald area of the head.

2. FUE does not require a strip of skin to be removed, instead, the hair follicles are individually removed from the donor site and positioned across the bald area in tiny slits created by a scalpel or needle.

Whilst the information presented here has been accurately sourced and verified by a medical professional for its accuracy, it is still advised to consult with your doctor before pursuing a medical treatment at one of the listed medical providers. This content was last updated on 04/02/2022.
