Although hair loss is much more common among older adults, it can happen to men and women of all ages. The causes can vary, from illnesses and medications to poor diet, stress, injury, or simply pure genetics, but there’s usually just one permanent treatment – a hair transplant.

Considering that hair transplant operations can often cost an arm and a leg in western countries like the UK or the US, more and more international patients are opting to have it done in one of the renowned hair transplant clinics in Turkey.

Hair transplant in Istanbul has seen a rise in demand, with millions of people flocking to the city every year to receive the utmost quality of service at surprisingly affordable prices. If you want to eliminate your hair loss problems once and for all, scheduling a hair transplant in Turkey could be the way to go.

Dr. Yaman's hair transplant clinic

Not all hair transplant clinics are made the same. If you want to enjoy superior results and achieve natural-looking hair, you’ll need to have your operation at one of the top clinics in Istanbul. Few facilities are held in higher regard than Dr. Yaman's hair transplant clinic. Established by Dr. Resul Yaman in 2009, the clinic offers advanced treatments for hair loss and enjoys excellent graft survival rates.

As a member of the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgeons (ISHRS), Dr. Resul Yaman has years of experience in the field of hair transplantation. Having graduated from the Istanbul University,  Cerrahpasa Faculty of Medicine, in 2005, he developed an interest in hair restoration due to his own hair loss problems. After having a hair transplant surgery himself in 2007, he became committed to perfecting his skills and offering his patients the best care possible.

The cost advantage of hair transplants in Turkey

While Dr. Yaman is considered a high-end hair transplant clinic in Istanbul, it offers some of the most affordable prices for international patients. The procedure that would cost you up to £30,000 in the UK and $15,000 in the US is almost 70% cheaper in Turkey. That’s not to say the quality of care is any worse.

Turkey boasts some of the best universities in the world. Its medical facilities are internationally recognized, and its doctors and medical staff receive the highest quality of training.

The reasoning behind the affordable price of transplants is simple – the lower costs of living in the country dictate the lower costs of medical services. You’ll enjoy quality treatments at just a fraction of the price you’d expect in western countries.

Additionally, the quote you receive from Dr. Yaman won’t solely include the cost of the transplant. You will receive a comprehensive hair transplant package, which includes the transplant with the maximum number of grafts using sapphire blades, anesthesia, necessary pre- and post-op medication, accommodation during your stay, and transportation from the airport to the clinic and your hotel.

Dr. Resul Yaman's hair transplant services

Dr. Resul Yaman offers hair, facial hair, eyebrow, and even eyelash transplants using either direct hair implantation (DHI) or follicular unit extraction (FUE) sapphire hair transplant procedures. During your free consultation, he will assess the extent of hair loss in your bald areas, analyze the condition of your donor area, and determine the best procedure for your needs.

During the DHI hair transplant, the doctor will need to shave the donor and recipient areas to apply a local anesthetic and extract hair grafts. To perform the hair transplant, he will use a specialized Choi pen with a hollow needle to insert the extracted follicles in the bald area one by one.

Alternatively, Dr. Yaman offers a modified version of the FUE transplant. Depending on your condition, shaving might not be necessary.

During the FUE transplant, the doctor will first extract hair grafts from the donor area and leave them in a nutrient solution. He will then make tiny incisions in the recipient area to open canals and make room for transplanted hair.

Dr. Yaman has developed an advanced tool known as the Modified FUE-Yaman Implanter, which minimizes contact between the transplanted grafts, the surface of your skin, and the forceps. Less contact means less damage to the follicles and higher graft survivability rates.

Regardless of the technique used, you’ll enjoy minimal scarring and excellent results in just a few months.

The results you can expect with hair transplants in Turkey

Whether you have a DHI or FUE hair transplant, you’ll need to remember that the results won’t be immediately noticeable. Some of the transplanted hair might fall out during the healing process in the first couple of months.

You should notice new hair growth within four to six months, but it will take between 12 and 18 months for the full results to become evident.

Considering that both DHI and FUE are advanced, minimally invasive methods, there should be virtually no evidence of you having had surgery. With minimal scarring, the final results should look completely natural. You can examine the before-and-after photos of Dr. Yaman’s previous patients directly on the clinic’s site and see the kind of results you could expect.

Final thoughts

Hair transplant surgery is often the only viable solution to extensive hair loss. However, the success of the surgery depends solely on the quality of your chosen clinic.

Dr. Yaman's hair transplant clinic is among the most highly-respected ones in Turkey and beyond. Contact the clinic for your free consultation, solve your hair loss issues, and enjoy natural-looking results.
