Hair transplantation has become a field of medicine in continuous growth, within which different countries are bidding to lead the ranking. Spain and Turkey are the countries with the greatest development in this area, that is why in this article we will compare hair grafting in Turkey with the same procedure in Spain.
A hair transplant surgery is a medical intervention that seeks to give back to the patient the hair lost due to alopecia. In order to achieve high quality results with hair grafting, it is necessary that this procedure is carried out by highly qualified professionals, with high quality material and in adequate infrastructure conditions.
These characteristics make hair grafting a surgical technique of high value when all the necessary requirements are met. Knowing this reality, many clinics seek to make a place for themselves in this medical field by offering hair graft surgeries in Turkey at low cost, saving of course on the quality of the procedure.
Thus, hair grafting in Turkey has begun to position itself as a low cost hair surgery proposal, which captures the attention of many interested parties. In addition, some Turkish hair clinics combine their offer with tourist packages for those travelers who do not know the country.
Thus, the idea of traveling to Turkey for a hair graft turns out to be -at first sight- an ideal plan. Access to an expensive procedure for a significantly lower price and, at the same time, get to know an unknown tourist destination.
However, is it worth traveling to Turkey for a hair transplant? Why does Turkey offer such cheap hair surgeries? What is the difference between a hair graft in Turkey and in Spain?
Hair grafting is a surgery that requires a lot of time and precision to be performed successfully and to obtain the expected results. Furthermore, as it is an aesthetic procedure, it is essential that the doctor and his team have extensive experience and specialized training.
First of all, it is necessary that each patient is evaluated in a personalized way by the doctor who will operate. In this way, the professional will be able to detect the type/level of alopecia, the follicular units necessary to cover the affected area and prepare the budget for the intervention. On the other hand, if necessary, the doctor will indicate a hair treatment to stabilize the alopecia before performing a hair graft.
Based on the personalized hair analysis, a hair transplant design will be made so that the patient can see the expected results first hand. In addition, he/she will be able to get an idea of the step by step of the hair transplant.
Then, on the day of the surgery, the patient must have the exclusive dedication of the doctor and assistants who have evaluated and programmed the intervention. In this way, the patient is certain that he/she will be operated by the hair doctor he/she has chosen and in whom he/she trusts.
During the postoperative period, the hair clinic must offer the operated patient periodic check-ups to evaluate the evolution of the hair graft and provide the medical advice required. During this process, doubts or situations that arouse anxiety may arise and the clinic must be present to contain and inform the patient.
Since the procedure requires so much dedication and care, the price of a hair graft must be calculated in a personalized way. In this way, a hair transplant plan suitable for each individual's needs can be drawn up.
Hair transplant offers in Turkey have proliferated recently, promising patients to recover their hair quickly and at a low cost. However, patients are unaware that these proposals may differ from the procedures carried out in hair clinics in Spain.
Firstly, the hair analysis and diagnosis is carried out telematically, and the possibility of meeting face-to-face with the professional in charge of the surgery is lost. On the other hand, the doctor does not have the opportunity to know in detail the initial situation of the patient.
On the other hand, we recommend patients to make sure that they will be fully operated on by the specialist physician. On many occasions, this professional provides indications and supervises the work, but does not perform the surgery. This allows these clinics to attend more patients per day, since they do not provide the exclusive attention of the physician.
Subsequently, the patient returns to his city and because of the distance, he no longer receives follow-up or face-to-face check-ups. He/she will have to follow the indications provided by the clinic in his/her own way, but he/she will not have face-to-face support or advice in case he/she needs it.
At Clínica de Freitas, located in Valencia, Spain, we have more than 2200 patients operated on. In addition, all our hair transplant surgeries are performed by Dr. Rafael de Freitas, specialist in trichology and hair implantology.
Here you will be able to know the opinions of our patients. In addition, by visiting our gallery of real cases you will learn about the results obtained throughout our extensive experience.
If you are considering the possibility of having a hair transplant in Turkey, you should not only look at opinions, but also look for real hair transplant results reported by patients and clinics.
Remember that hair grafting is a technique that uses your own hair, that is, you are your own donor. Knowing this, it is essential to make the most of the follicles used, so that the results are adequate both in the recipient and donor area.
If the results are not as expected and the donor area is exhausted by a poor distribution of follicular units, it will be impossible to make a repair. For this reason, our advice will always be to look for the best possible results the first time, with an experienced professional who will accompany the patient throughout his hair recovery.
