The Process Of A Hair Transplant In Turkey
We make the process of organising a hair transplant at our clinics in Turkey extremely simple. From your first application, you will be greeted by a member of our experienced team who will conduct an initial phone call to get a better idea of your requirements. They will then ask you to send images of your scalp for assessment. After assessing the images, we will then organise your consultation, usually over the phone or face-to-face in our London office, where a treatment plan will be devised to ensure that you have a solution that works for you before flying out for your FUE hair transplant in Turkey.
Once the consultation for one of our hair transplant Turkey procedures has been conducted, you will be advised on the most appropriate treatment package to suit your needs. This package has everything that you require including the accommodation, price of the procedure and a full aftercare plan, with a travel itinerary sent across to you by our travel coordinator. All you have to do is organise the flights!
For those seeking an easy experience, opting for Longevita for your hair transplant will allow you to undergo the procedure without worrying about where you’ll stay or what you’ll face. With our top-rated medical facilities and sought-after surgeons, our hair transplant procedures in Turkey are a solution to hair loss that you can trust.
High Density (HD) FUE Hair Transplant is performed with the maximum number of grafts that can be extracted from your donor area.
Surgeons provide a guarantee certificate that warrants the transplanted grafts would stay permanent assuring return on your investment.
We provide dedicated aftercare while in Turkey and after return to home country. We review your pictures every 1-3-6-9-12 months and make recommendations for best results possible.
What Is The FUE Hair Transplant?
Follicular unit extraction (FUE) is a pain and scar free technique whose recovery period is shorter than Follicular unit transplantation (FUT). FUE is more effective for those with a receding hairline. FUE refers to the process of removing individual hair follicles from donor sites and transplanting them into recipient sites. Tiny punches of between 0.6mm and 1.20mm in diameter are used during the micro removal of hair follicles.
After the removal, each single follicle is transplanted into the scalp of the balding area using a micro blade. The small size of this incision allows for minimal damages to the scalp and ensuring the follicle is taken out whole in order to increase the survival rate.
This is crucial as it means that it can be inserted into the scalp within the thinning area, allowing the follicles to then take to the skin. This then ensures that the hair can thrive and grow for the best possible results.
Hair transplant does not alter the total number of hairs on the scalp since it just moves the follicles from one part of the scalp to another. It cannot prevent future hair loss and is limited by the number of hairs on the donor area.
The minimal downtime from this procedure is just one of the many alluring factors of a hair transplant in Turkey. The precision of the FUE hair transplant in comparison to the traditional FUT technique also allows the hair to grow back as naturally as possible.
Following your FUE hair transplant, you may experience some side effects such as swelling; however, these should subside within just a few days of the procedure. If you experience any notable side effects after your hair transplant procedure, our expert team in Turkey and in the UK can provide you with any assistance you require.
Risks & Side Effects Of A Hair Transplant In Turkey
As with any surgical procedure, you face a number of risks and side effects. While choosing a highly reputable medical tourism company such as Longevita helps to minimise these risks, the way your body reacts to the donor hairs differs on a case-by-case basis. Some of the side effects of a hair transplant in Turkey include:
- Hair Thinning
- Bald Patches
- Swelling Of The Scalp And Forehead
In addition to this, there are some risks which you will need to consider prior to opting for a hair transplant procedure. These include:
- Death Of Hair Follicles
- Unnatural Look
At Longevita, we take our patient care very seriously, which is why we offer such an extensive aftercare programme both when the patient is in Turkey post-procedure and when they return to the UK.
In order to minimise the side effects which our patients may experience post-procedure, we offer an extensive aftercare package offered by our doctors, nurses, consultants and surgeons both in Turkey and in the UK. Your dedicated host will remain in touch with you for up to one year after your hair transplant in Turkey and they will be there to monitor your results through the entire healing process while also ensuring that all your questions are answered. We can guide you through the basic self-care processes such as how to sleep after the procedure and the shampoo routine post-procedure, but we are also available 24/7 to ensure that you have someone to talk to should you require a helping hand.
If you are unsure of how your head is healing or if you are concerned about the results of the procedure, you can arrange an appointment with one of our doctors based in the UK to discuss your concerns face-to-face or over the phone in more detail. In the rare event that you are unhappy with the results, we can provide you with instructions on the next steps to take.
Typical Hair Transplant Patient Journey
At Longevita, we aim to make the patient journey as smooth and as streamlined as possible, which is why we help to arrange every part of the process for you. As our clinics lie at the epicentre of the medical tourism industry, we are able to provide cost-effective and high-quality procedures for all of our patients.
The patient journey is broken down simply below, to ensure you are aware of each step you will take if you request a free consultation with the team today.
Step One: Patient Vetting
Once you submit your details into our online form, a member of our team will request images of your head from a number of angles in order to better understand if you are an appropriate candidate for our hair transplant Turkey procedures prior to the initial consultation. Once provided, they will book you in with one of our dedicated patient consultants over the phone or face-to-face in our Central London office for your initial consultation.
Step Two: Initial Consultation
While we typically perform the large majority of our face-to-face consultations in Central London, we are able to accommodate visits to clinics in the major cities across the UK at different times of the year. Please get in touch with a member of our team to find out more about which cities we visit.
The initial consultation will be carried out by an expert patient consultant. They will discuss your desired results, investigate the causes of your hair loss and understand which of our hair transplant techniques would be most beneficial for you. You will then be provided with a tailored treatment plan and no-obligation price quote.
Step Three: Agreement & Deposit
If you do decide to undergo a hair transplant at one of our hair clinics in Turkey, then you will be required to sign the relevant paperwork and pay a deposit upfront. At this point, we will be able to begin planning the travel element and book in your surgery date.
Step Four: Dedicated Travel Coordinator
Once the deposit has been paid, you will be contacted by one of our dedicated travel coordinators, who will arrange all of the elements of the travel for you. This includes accommodation at one of our many partner hotels, private airport transfers and a dedicated host, all as part of the package. While we are unable to book flights for you as part of this package, our travel coordinators can advise on the best flight times and deals based on your availability and airport preference. All of these elements will be compiled into your itinerary to ensure that they are best suited to your procedure date, time and preferences.
Step Five: Travel To Turkey
Once everything has been planned and booked, all that’s left to do is to pack your bags, wait for the day of your flight and jet off to Turkey. Once you land in Turkey, you will be greeted by a member of our team who will guide you to your private airport transfer. From the airport, you will be taken to your chosen 4* or 5* hotel where you will be checked in.
Step Six: Your First Appointment
Your first appointment will then follow at one of our state-of-the-art hospitals or clinics on the date detailed within your planned itinerary. You will be met at the hospital by your dedicated host, who will then be available 24/7 to answer any questions or queries that you may have about the procedure itself or the process within your itinerary. Your first appointment allows you to meet with your surgeon who will collect further information from you about your health and any expectations. A blood test will be conducted in order to assess your suitability to the surgery. Your hair transplant surgeon in Turkey will then draw you a hairline taking into consideration your expectations.
Step Seven: The Procedure
In order to ensure that the FUE hair transplant in Turkey is pain-free, we offer local anaesthetic to ensure you remain comfortable throughout the duration of the procedure. We also offer needle-free anaesthesia which is something you are able to discuss with your consultant and the surgeon prior to the procedure. After your initial meeting with your surgeon, you will be taken to your procedure and asked to sign any further consent forms. As the procedure is an outpatient procedure you will not need to stay in the hospital or clinic after the hair transplant.
Step Eight: Post-Procedure Appointments
After the procedure takes place, you will be required to attend a check-up appointment. The check-up appointment will occur the next day post-procedure and will allow the surgeon to review the healing progress of the newly implanted follicles and will also provide you with some aftercare information and any medication required.
Step Nine: Return To The UK
You may spend as much time in the beautiful country of Turkey as you please, however once you return to the UK, your dedicated host will stay in touch for up to a year after the procedure in order to monitor your progress. Your host may request pictures on occasion to better view the results and how your scalp is healing after the procedure and provide recommendations in regards to aftercare. You are also able to access aftercare services provided by our professional surgeons and doctors in the UK.
Step Ten: Enjoy Your New Hair
Your new hair can take around 9-12 months in order to grow and show results. If you experience shedding from your new hair, try not to panic – this is known as shock loss and is perfectly common after a hair transplant procedure. After this, your new hair will begin to flourish and you will reap the benefits of your new locks on a permanent basis.
The Cost Of A Hair Transplant In Turkey
When undergoing a hair transplant in Turkey with Longevita, the price covers your entire package. The package includes the cost of the surgery as well as accommodation at a 4 or 5-star hotel as standard. The package also includes an aftercare service, to ensure you always enjoy a high-quality experience, courtesy of your dedicated host who will accompany you for the duration of your transplant procedure.
Our hair transplant cost in Turkey is competitive and designed to ensure that patients with all extents of hair loss can access our services. Here at Longevita, we recognise that the cost of a hair transplant can be considerably cheaper than that in the UK, but we take things one step further.
As our rates are subsidised by the Turkish government, we offer a full package service to ensure that the quality of the procedure remains as high as possible. With all the procedures being performed at highly rated, JCI accredited facilities by some of the world’s most sought-after hair transplant specialists, there’s no better option to choose from than Longevita.
In comparison, in the UK the price of a hair transplant procedure can range upwards of £10,000. At Longevita, the cost of a hair transplant performed at our expert clinics in Turkey is based on a flat fee regardless of the number of grafts required to provide you with the results you desire – unlike many UK providers. Our prices range from £1200 to £1500 depending on whether you opt to travel to Istanbul or Izmir.
As part of the initial hair transplant consultation with a patient consultant, we will provide you with all of the information you require on the right type of technique for your type of hair loss. However, FUE is typically regarded as the most popular and best method, at the moment, due to it being a painless procedure with minimal scarring.
In order to determine the number of grafts you require as part of the hair transplant procedure process prior to your travel to Turkey, you will benefit from an in-person physical examination during the consultation. This will allow your patient consultant to accurately assess the extent on your balding areas and the strength of your donor areas. S/he will then provide you with an estimation of the amount of coverage you can get and the number of grafts that can be extracted without damaging the donor area.
You are expected to experience some hair loss before your new hair will start to grow due to the trauma that your hair follicles experience during the transplantation. This is referred to as shock loss. Your new hair will typically begin to grow within three months, and you will see your final results after a year.
As your transplanted hair is your own hair drawn from your scalp, it is completely natural and therefore will provide you with a natural-looking result. The precision offered by the FUE technique helps to ensure that we transplant the follicles in a natural-looking way, so that no-one will even notice that you’ve had a hair transplant!
The transplanted hair is not subject to the balding process as it is taken from the back of your head which is resistant to hair loss. Therefore, the results of the hair transplant procedure in Turkey will be permanent. However, you may still experience hair loss on your natural hair which was not touched during your hair transplant surgery due to ageing and other external factors.
