Cost Of Hair Transplants In Turkey
Why Should You Have Hair Transplants In Turkey?
90% of men experience loss of hair if not complete balding in their lifetime. There are preventative measures one can take such as laser treatments or the daily use of products such as Rogaine or Propecia, however, these treatments only go so far. Fortunately, recent developments in medical science allow patients to indulge in a permanent solution at a reasonable price. The best place to do this? Istanbul.
Turkey has been dominating the hair transplant industry with over a billion dollars of market share, according to the Independent newspaper while Washington post claims that each month Turkey receives over 5,000 international patients for hair transplant services. Unfortunately current market facts indicate that many clinics in Turkey spend a significant amount of money on marketing and other overhead costs to reach and convince you that they are the right fit for you creating added costs to an already expensive procedure. This is where Hair Guru Agency comes in.
Hair Guru Agency takes pride in accommodating patients with the best available services, treatment, and pricing. Forget about the big numbers that could make anyone apprehensive about taking such a life-changing process and allow us to guide you through an experience without frivolous expenditures and ease of mind. Let us explain it to you!
Quality and expertise
FUE, also known as Follicular Unit Extraction, has been the primary choice of surgeries in Turkey as well as all over the globe. Many Turkish doctors switched to the FUE technique a decade ago and have been training and teaching ever since. In fact, many doctors from North America and Europe are visiting their colleagues in Turkey to learn their techniques and implement their newfound knowledge to their surgery style.
The confidence in our service comes from the simple fact that Dr. Kayihan Sahinoglu has been conducting surgeries with the FUE method more than any other surgeons in the world. He is a pioneer in hair transplants with almost 25 years of experience in his profession. The consistency, skill, experience, dedication, and mastery make him not only the best doctor in Turkey but also one of the best in the world.
For many years Hair Guru Agency has been the glue between the clinic and the patients. Our objective is to cater to the patient from the first point of contact to years after the surgery is complete to ensure ultimate customer care and that satisfaction is guaranteed.

Unfortunately, not everyone can have hair transplants. To decide if your donor hair is thick enough and your hair/scalp characteristics are suitable for surgery, we need photos from you. We require 2 photos from the front, 2 each from sides, 2 from the top and 2 from the back. Here is the form for a free consultation.
After we receive your photos, we provide you with an initial consultation report from our agency. Meanwhile, we send the file to the surgeon and get his detailed idea about your situation. Eventually, he decides if the patient is suitable for a hair transplant procedure. If not, we explain to you with details on why it is better if you don’t get surgery. If you are fit for surgery, we give you information about not only this operation but what might be necessary in the future and build a strategy uniquely for your case.
Our surgeon is very famous in Europe, therefore his first available date is usually in three months. However, as Hair Guru Agency, we received special dates from the surgeon so can give you date within a month.
We recommend arriving at the city at least a day before the surgery to get settled and relax before the big day. If the patient wishes, we can arrange accommodation and transfer from the airport for you so you can concentrate only on your procedure.
The day of the surgery, you will arrive at the clinic very early for your last consultation with the doctor. He will mark the hair transplant areas and will let you know how many grafts you will need.
After surgery, you will be transported back to your hotel where you can rest. For any questions you have, the surgeon will be available for a call or message.
Two days after surgery, you can safely fly back to your country.
We will be regularly checking you for updates of your surgery and reminding you what happens at each step. For any questions you have, we answer back in one hour.
Before And After Pictures Of Former Patients
The advantage of the FUE method is that the hair follicles are individually placed and evenly distributed in the targeted area producing a very natural look. Thanks to the amazing patients who volunteered to have their pictures used on our website you can see the many different types of patients and their hair transformations, a clear insight into the wonders that Dr. Kayihan Sahinoglu is capable of achieving.
Anyone who has spent time looking for hair transplant options will know that the rates are different from country to country. In North America, for example, the FUT procedure costs around $15,000 US, where as the FUE procedure, depending on how great of an area is needed to be treated, is quite a bit more. On average, in North America, it is $8/graft wherein Turkey it is $2 per graft. When you compare the prices and results, it is evident that for almost a third of what you pay in North America, you get a superior procedure with a top of the line surgeon without any compromise, just the added bonus of a vacation in a beautiful country.

Cost Of Hair Transplants And Reasons Of Differences
The cost of hair transplants varies significantly around the world for several different reasons. If we look closely at the situation in Turkey, we can classify these reasons such as;
- The Number Of Grafts Used
- Experience And Skill Of The Surgeon
- Technician Involvement
- Full, Partial or None Surgeon Involvement
- Quality Of The Facilities
The calculation is simple, if you multiply the number of grafts you need by the price of each graft, you find how much it costs to get hair transplants.
Total Number of Grafts Required * Price per Graft = Cost of Surgery
The more a surgeon performed surgery, the more experience he has. When you add the skill of the surgeon, it distinguishes many doctors from each other.
In most cases, if the technician performs the surgery, it will cost significantly less. Because of the lack of skill, experience and qualifications, the cost drops significantly at the expense of losing quality.
Some clinics give patients options with the surgery. These clinics customize their service and set prices according to surgeon involvement.
If the surgeon performs surgery personally without any technician involvement, it costs more because the outcome is better.
If the surgeon performs extraction which is considered the most important part of FUE hair transplants and everything else is done by the technicians, it costs a little less.
If the surgeon only supervises surgery, it is the cheapest option with the least quality.
Depending on the equipment and facility quality, prices might vary in some clinics.
