Losing your hair can be a fact of life, but it doesn’t have to last forever. It is now becoming more and more common for people to look to cosmetic procedures to change aspects of their physical appearance, and hair loss is one of them.
There are many reasons to travel to Turkey for the treatments, as described by, but here is a summary of the top 10 reasons almost 60,000 people every year are choosing Turkey as the place to go.
- Hair transplants actually work permanently
Over the years there have been so many treatments available for hair loss that simply give false hope. Once hair loss has begun, unless it is due to medication or an infection, it is highly unlikely it can be stopped or will regrow.
The hair transplant, after a few months of regrowth, completely reverses the balding caused by male pattern balding, and will simply continue to grow as if the hair had been growing in that location for your whole life. And as long as the original hair loss was allowed to reach its full conclusion, the area will not suffer further hair loss.
2. The procedure is not considered surgical
The way a hair transplant works is that individual hairs, or small groups of 3-5 hairs are taken from a donor site by means of a small punch like tool. This is repeated thousands of times are required in order to ensure a thick and natural growth at the donor site.
There is hardly any blood, which is why it is considered non-surgical. And the client doesn’t even need to be put under general anaesthetic. Local anaesthetic is used instead and you stay awake for the entire procedure. This is far less risky than true surgical procedures.
3. The best doctors are in Turkey
With Turkey now the world leader in hair transplants, the best doctors and clinicians are all flocking to the area to learn and develop new and innovative procedures in hair transplants. It requires great skill and specialism to carry out the transplant, and the new technology being developed in Turkey is ensuring that the results are fantastic within minimum scarring and damage to the skin, and quicker healing and recovery.
4. The hospitals and clinics are of the highest quality
The procedures are carried out in the state of the art modern specially designed hospitals to cope with the large numbers of inbound health tourists.These top of the range hospitals are Joint Commission International (JCI) accredited, which means that they are independently evaluated for service standards to ensure the best for patients. They are also set up to deal with the full range of medical tests and procedures including emergency care.
5. You will be staying in a 5 star hotel
One of the great things about booking with a Turkish clinic – they really know how to look after their patients and make sure that you have all the comforts you need during your stay to make sure that you are calm, relaxed and able to recover in the best conditions. You will stay in a five star luxury hotel during the procedure – so make sure you enjoy is. Some people even choose to undergo the procedure at the end of a holiday.
6. You get access to your own chauffeur and translator
Of course you need to be able to get to and from the airport and to and from the appointments at the clinic. Which is why you will be given your own private transfer driver to get you where you need to be, and access to an interpreter and assistant who will get you anything you need. This should go some way to reassuring you if you are worried about going somewhere you do not speak the language.
7. It is 80% cheaper than in other countries
Because the Turkish lira doesn’t typically perform that well against the pound, the dollar and the euro, coming to Turkey from abroad can literally save you thousands. As much as 80% lower. Added to this the running costs are lower, and competition in Istanbul fierce, and those discounts are passed on to the client. For as little as 2,500 euros you can have a new look, compared to much more expensive countries like the UK and US.
The important thing is that despite the almost unbelievable low price, there is no drop in quality of service and results.
8. The results are amazing
There is no denying, the results are really quite astounding. Bearing in mind that it can take a couple of weeks to heal, and then a few months for the hair to get back into a regular growth cycle and grow longer and give coverage, and the end of your journey you will once again have a full head of hair. Just look at the before and after online.
9. You can have follow up appointments in the UK
Ultimately you can’t stay in the 5 star hotel forever. You will have to travel home after a few days to continue the recuperation from there. But do not worry you will not be completely alone. You will also be able to visit certain clinics in the UK for follow up after recovery and make sure everything is progressing as expected. The clinic does not simply wash its hands of its clients just because they have left the country.
10. It can have a huge benefits for your mental health
If you have suffered a lack of confidence since losing your hair, this is a chance to get back that feeling of being young and strong again. It is really quite astounding the impact hair can have on a person’s psyche when they lose it, and if you haven’t chosen to live with it and love yourself then at least you know there is something you can do about it, and not just if you are a rich celebrity – it’s available to everyone.
