Turkey has emerged as a prominent destination for hair transplant, highlights RNCOS in its recent report “Turkey Medical Tourism Outlook 2017″. With the growing acceptance of medical tourism, people who need hair transplant, hair loss treatment and restoration are considering treatment abroad as a low-cost option. Since 2005, the number of tourists visiting Turkey for hair transplant has been increasing at a fast pace
The major reason for Turkey being a preferred destination for hair transplant is affordability, and high-quality treatment. Transplantation cost in Turkey is about one-third of that in Europe. Apart from imparting treatment at a cheaper price, Turkey has also changed the method of treatment, to the bloodless, painless, non-surgical and seamless FUE method, to replace the bloody FUT method. Because of this, surgery can be carried out more quickly as there is no need to remove the skin. Instead a self-closing process of transplanting by opening small holes is done, making the procedure less painful and seamless.
Further, patients who choose treatment in Turkey can receive lots of perks such as free air tickets, free transport from airport to hotel, and sometimes free accommodation in some hotels in Turkey. Thus, the country attracts a huge amount of hair loss sufferers from all over the world. However, hair transplant patients mostly come from Arab countries.
