Well-noted Turkish Hair Transplantation Surgeons
Turkish plastic surgeons have made quite a name in hair transplantation surgery. This may have its roots in the Turkish peoples’ character. Turkish people are always very much into new technologies and trends. They adapt themselves very easily to novelties.
When hair transplantation starting been popular about 20 years ago and mostly Follicular Unit Transfer (FUT) technique was almost the only choice. Turkish doctors adapted the FUT technique easily and started to treat their patients with this technique. After 2003, Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) started to be popular and then Turkish doctors have adapted themselves to use FUE technique.
Dr. Ilker Apaydın is one of the few plastic who started early in doing hair transplantation and he is capable of offering FUE or FUT techniques, or sometimes both of them combined, depending on the special needs of the patient.
The main reason for the patients to choose Turkey as a destination for hair transplantation is obviously economic.
Who doesn’t want to receive the premium quality for the lowest price? That is what happens when an international patient comes to Turkey to have hair transplantation.
The price for hair transplantation is given per one graft after an online consultation. The price per graft is approximately 1-3 dollars in Turkey, where it is 8 to 17 dollars in the US, 5-10 pounds in London, 5-10 dollars in Brussels and 4 to 15 dollars in Dubai.
Having said that, we must warn you not to believe in the very low prices you may get after a quick search in the internet.
