Hair transplant in Turkey
A hair transplant is a cosmetic procedure that involves moving hair to an area that’s thin or balding. This can be due to ageing, genetics or conditions such as alopecia that leads to permanent hair loss.
Hair loss can have very detrimental effects on a person’s confidence. It can be a traumatic time for some, so it’s important that when considering a hair transplant, people speak with an expert they can trust.
At MedicoTrips, we want you to feel comfortable and happy with your decision.
We might explain that a hair transplant may not work for you, and we will instead highlight some other options that may be better suited to your needs. This is why you can rest assured we will only complete hair transplant surgery if it’s the right course of action for you.
Hair transplants are becoming more and more popular, with medical professionals in Turkey having performed the procedure for many years.

The options for a hair transplant in Turkey
If you are looking to undergo a hair transplant in Turkey, there are two popular types of procedure - FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) hair transplant and FUT (Follicular Unit Transplant).
FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) Hair Transplant
This is the most modern form of hair transplant, and is considered the ‘gold standard’ of hair transplant techniques. This is because it is minimally invasive.
The process works by extracting hair follicles from the back of the head.
At MedicoTrips, the hair transplant is carried out at our surgical facility in Istanbul, Turkey.
Throughout the procedure, the patient is under local anaesthesia to numb the patients scalp. Individual hair follicles are removed from the donor area with a ‘micro-punch’.
The follicles are then prepared into grafts and the surgeon places them onto the specific area.
The recovery is very quick, as there are no stitches needed. We expect patients who undergo this type of hair transplant surgery in Turkey to be back to a normal routine within a few days.
FUT (Follicular Unit Transplant)
FUT is the more traditional technique of hair transplant surgery, but it’s an excellent option for patients with more advanced hair loss.
Hair follicles are harvested by removing a narrow strip of skin from the back of the scalp. This allows an increased number of grafts to be created compared to FUE, which is why it’s a more common procedure for those with more severe hair loss.
Similar to FUE, this type of hair transplant is again only a minor surgical procedure, which only requires local anaesthetic, and can be performed in one day. The healing process is however, slightly longer.
The process of getting a hair transplant in Turkey
Agreeing to go ahead with a hair transplant in Turkey is a major decision.
At MedicoTrips, we advise you on all the pros and cons of each procedure, so you can make a well informed decision as to whether to go ahead with the surgery.
If you do decide to progress with a hair transplant in Turkey, we will discuss the process with you in full, and arrange a convenient date for your procedure.
Ahead of the surgery, you will be picked up from the airport via a VIP transfer, and will be taken to your hotel.
On the day of the surgery, you will speak in detail about the procedure with your surgeon, and once you’re ready, you will begin the process.
The procedure will last between six to eight hours.
Once the procedure is complete, you will be taken to your hotel to recover, and when it’s safe to do so, you will be able to fly home to the UK.
You will be given suitable aftercare in the form of medication and shampoo, to aid recovery. You will notice after two to three weeks post surgery, the transplanted hair will fall out. This begins the process of new hair regrowth, and within a year this will be complete.
The hair transplant procedure in Turkey has been designed to be as easy and seamless as possible, offering experienced medical care for a more cost effective price.
