Why the cost of a hair transplant in Turkey varies so much in 2021?

    The main cost-driving factors for hair transplant procedure in Turkey

  • Surgeon involvement in the procedure: High vs low
  • Extraction tool used: Manual vs motorized punch
  • Graft extraction performed: In 1 vs multiple days
  • Technique used: DHI vs FUE (stick and place vs pre-made recipient sites)

1. Hair Transplant Clinic Type: Package Hair Transplant Offers (1.500-3.000€ Flat Fee)

  • 8-10 patients can be operated simultaneously at such clinic every day
  • Motorized extraction is used for harvesting the grafts
  • In most of the cases, hairlines could look a bit more natural but they´re dense most of the time

Clinics in the "Package Zone"

  • The total price for the surgery isn´t determined by the number of grafts transplanted but rather by a flat fee (no matter how many grafts you get = all-in package with hotel, breakfast, PRP, VIP transfer from the airport to the hotel, etc.)
  • Rare or no communication with the doctor or a hair transplant surgeon prior to the surgery day
  • High diversification of tasks (marketing, customer service, graft extraction, graft placement, incisions-making, hair wash post-op, etc.)
  • Prices between different package offers only differ based on the technique used (DHI, FUE, FUE Sapphire, Long-hair DHI, etc.)
  • Low/no doctor involvement in the procedure. Trained assistants/technicians perform 90% of the surgery

2. Hair Transplant Clinic Type: Price per Graft Offers from 1€ - 1.50€ per graft

  • Manual and motorized extraction is used for grafts harvesting
  • In most of the cases, hairlines look natural but could be more dense sometimes

Clinics in the "Signs of the Safety Zone"

  • “Signs of the Safety Zone” means that ending up with a more natural-looking result without over-harvested donor area is more likely than in the “Package Zone” due to higher doctor involvement in the procedure and accepting fewer patients per day
  • Incision-making is always done by the doctor as well as the graft extraction. Implantation is done by the assistants
  • Only 1-2 patients can be operated per day by clinics in the “Signs of the Safety” Zone
  • There is a fixed price per each graft transplanted
  • Communication with the doctor or a hair transplant surgeon prior to the surgery day is more likely compared to the clinics in the “Package Zone”

3. Hair Transplant Clinic Type: Price per Graft Offers from 2€ - 3€ per graft

  • Manual extraction is used for harvesting the grafts
  • In most of the cases, hairlines look natural and dense at the same time

Clinics in the "Safe Zone"

  • “Safe Zone” means higher probability of ending up with a natural-looking result with properly managed donor area (homogenous graft extraction pattern) due to high doctor involvement in the procedure
  • Incision-making is always done by the doctor as well as the graft extraction. Implantation is done by the assistants
  • Only 1-3 patients can be operated per day by clinics in the “Safe Zone”
  • There is a fixed price per each graft transplanted

How to choose the best hair transplant doctor in Turkey based on this understanding?

You should always choose the hair transplant clinic based on your own preferences and expectations.

First and foremost, ask yourself the following questions:

Do you want your hair transplant to be performed by a doctor or assistants/technicians? 

If you want to have a doctor performing recipient sites (incisions) himself and graft extraction (harvesting) himself, then you should consider some doctors from the two pricier zones. 

Although it´s true that even in the package zone you can have doctors to perform incisions, you have to pay extra. 

It´s definitely better compared to the doctor not being mechanically involved in your hair transplant procedure at all, but don´t expect doctors in the “Package zone” perform graft extraction also, because they don´t have time for it due to accepting 7-10 patients per day (sometimes even more).

How important to you is ending up with a properly-homogenized donor area without over-harvesting?

All clinics try their best to keep patient’s donor area properly homogenized without any over-harvesting, but some clinics can do it better than other.

After researching Turkish hair transplant clinics for over 4 years extensively, I figured that the clinics in zone number 2 and number 3 are in fact more likely to consistently leave their patients with homogenous-looking donor area.

Clinics in the “Package Zone” are known for using micromotors and extracting up to 5.000 grafts per day with FUE – which contributes to over-harvesting the most (in case the patient’s donor area has been falsely marked as dense enough to withstand such aggressive harvesting).

However, if you are somebody who is a fairly low Norwood – e.g NW2 – NW3.5, I think you can, in fact, get a pretty decent result at some of the best clinics in the “Package Zone.”

5 best Turkish hair transplant clinics in the Package Zone are listed in my “Ultimate Hair Transplant in Turkey” Guide

I researched over 70 Turkish hair transplant clinics in the last 4 years and narrowed them down to 14!



Do you like the 80-90% of the results which come from a particular Turkish clinic?

If you like most of the clinic’s results, then you have likely found your clinic! Here´s one piece of advice though – make sure you always check their recent results and not the ones from 5 years ago.

Especially in Turkey, clinics come and go, employ new workforce and then let them go because some of the assistants decide to form their own clinic etc. 

This can have a drastic impact on their current ability to produce hair transplants of good quality on a consistent basis.

Do you like their temporal hair restoration, hairline restoration and crown area restoration ability?

Make sure you learn to evaluate a hair transplant clinic based on the ability to restore hair on different areas of the scalp. 

In Turkey, you can find many clinics which only focus on hairline restoration (and can do it fairly well), but their crown area hair restoration or temporal hair restoration skills are not so sharp. Usually they lack naturalness. In one of my eBook in my Ultimate Hair Transplant Research Bundle – “Hair Transplant Research Made Simple in 3 Essential Steps” I explain how to properly evaluate the before and after results of any hair transplant clinic.


How much are you willing to spend on getting your hair back?

Up to 3.000$ you say? Well, in such a case the “Package Zone” might be your final choice. 

If your hair loss is not as severe yet (NW2 – NW3), you could be better even with some clinics in the second zone – charging 1 Euro – 1.50 Euro per graft.

In such case, you could pay around 3.000 Euro and end up with a much higher doctor involvement in your procedure compared to the “Package Zone.”

If you don´t have any budget though, then the “Safe Zone” would be the best option for you!

Are you an average hair transplant candidate with moderate hair follicle density in your donor area or excellent density in your donor area and additional beard hair follicles underneath your chin?

Not everybody is an excellent hair transplant candidate with dense-looking donor area.

There are in fact many patients with average donor area density and simultaneously having advanced Norwood hair loss pattern.

These patients can be “saved” by transplanting their body hair on the balding scalp in cases when the donor area has been already depleted.

Unfortunately, not every hair transplant clinic utilizes body hair (beard and chest hair) for hair transplantation.

This strategy can be very helpful if a patient need extra hair coverage on the scalp, but his donor area doesn´t provide enough grafts anymore for multiple reasons (genetics, previous hair transplants, over-harvesting due to improper graft extraction pattern during his previous hair transplant, etc).

The good new is, that Turkish hair transplant clinics in all of the 3 zones are able to utilize body hair for a better FUE hair transplant result – in some cases.


Are you a young guys who is likely to end up with a more advanced Norwood hair loss pattern in the future? ( NW5-NW7).

Young guys with unstable hair loss should always consider medication (Finasteride, Micro-needling, Minoxidil and Ketoconazole Shampoo) before they even consider hair transplant.

Men who are still young and likely to end up with advanced baldness in the future, are better off choosing either “Signs of the Safety” or “Safe Zone” in Turkey for the following reasons:

– Better donor area management

– Better long-term hair transplant planning

– Better ability to create natural results by patients, who are average hair transplant candidates with moderate hair density on the donor area

    1. Hi George,

      I know them but wouldn’t recommend them really. I think there are much better options in TUrkey for the price.
      If you want to know more, I recommend you checking out my Ultimate Hair Transplant in TUrkey guide available
      on with the best price/quality clinics in Turkey.

      Hope it helps!


        1. I can only tell that they’re not on my list of recommended hair transplant clinics in Turkey. Unfortunately, it is for a reason. I believe that there are better clinics in this price class to be found in Istanbul. If you want to know more, make sure you check out either my “Ultimate Hair Transplant in Turkey” Guide or apply for a 1 on 1 Call with me personally. Thanks for stopping by!

    1. I have seen this clinic going through several ups and downs over the years. Some results are close to great while others are not. I base my opinion on the guys I have talked to who went to this clinic as well as guys who posted their results into several Facebook groups. I feel like the one thing they have been lacking the most over the last 5 years or so, is the consistency of great results (by that I mean great naturalness on the hairline and density, as well as properly homogenized FUE extractions from the donor area. But since it is a “many patients per day” type of clinic, don’t expect any thorough consultation with the doctor either. In general, if you have a good donor and a low potential to recede further the risk of going there may not be as high. On the other hand, if you are a young guy with an average donor and plenty of hair loss potential in the future, I would avoid them.

    1. Hi. It is a typical “Package zone” clinic. The hair transplant price is 1.800 Euro for the max number of grafts and probably hotel + transportation from the airport is also included. The clinic doesn’t focus solely on hair transplantation but provides different plastic surgery types as well, which is an issue in my opinion. If you check out my “Ultimate Hair Transplant in Turkey” Guide, you will find out better options for hair transplant clinics in Turkey for the 2.000-3.500 Euro price class. I have also visited several of them myself. I have much more confidence in their work compared to this very unknown clinic. Generally, I don’t suggest any clinics in Turkey below 2.000 euros.

  1. Please advise what is the best clinic in Turkey for a hair transplant.

    And please also advise what you think of Hair Of Istanbul

    1. Get on a 1 on 1 Consult with me in order to get a 2nd opinion on your particular situation as it depends on many factors.

    1. I don’t know them. If you are interested in my personal opinion I can have a look at them and we can discuss them in detail during my 1 on 1 call.

  2. Hey Matt!
    I decided to go for Health Travels with Dr. Demirsoy! Is this a Good decision even if ge Is using micromotor for extracting Grafts?

    1. Ultimately it depends on how many grafts will be harvested per session plus the experience of the surgeon of course!

        1. Hi Leroy. What’s app me on +48534214877 and send me some photos. I need more information before I can advise you accordingly. Yes, I am familiar with this clinic.
