Hair transplants in Istanbul are also very popular. Istanbul has become one of the most popular spots in the world for a hair transplant. Well, let’s say; you have decided to come to Istanbul to have a hair transplant, eyebrow transplant, mustache transplant, beard transplant or another aesthetic health procedure.

The crowded city can be disturbing!
Istanbul is a very crowded city. It is one of the few most populous cities in the world. As someone who was born and raised in Europe, I can clearly say that the crowded city in question is exhausting. However, according to the common opinion of the people who experience the overcrowded city is that it has a strange charm to it. The city is very lively…
You can find what you want at any time …
Istanbul and many other big cities in Turkey are non-stop for 24 hours. This is different from many European cities; You can find small grocery stores open 24 hours a day, you can even find a taxi on the street at midnight, you can find staff to take care of you in the hospitals, you can find food and even places to shop. This is a great comfort…
The Traffic can be annoying!
Traffic in Istanbul is very busy and stressful. It usually takes a long time to go from one place to another. For this reason, you have to choose the time intervals to get around the city and which transportation you will use when touring.
Private health system is highly developed
In Istanbul, it is easier to find specialist, plastic surgeons, technical personnel and health experts than in European countries. Physicians are more accessible. Moreover, as a result of the social structure, it is generally warmer and more open for assistance. This offers great psychological comfort for patients from a different country.
Offers attractive prices!
Due to the exchange rate, the prices in Turkey are more reasonable compared to prices in Europe and the US. Dining out, traveling, clothing and other shopping items are much more affordable. Istanbul is also a real shopping paradise. Especially the number of people coming to the city from the United Arab Emirates and Europe just for shopping is quite high. Giant shopping malls, traditional bazaars and shops selling textile surpluses allow you to find many options together. It is one of the rare cities where you can find the stores of the world’s most famous brands and handmade products at the same time.
Accommodation in Istanbul offers a wide choice. It is rich in small hostels, luxury hotel chains, city hotels and rental houses. It offers an accommodation alternative for almost any budget. If you are coming to Istanbul for a hair transplant and organizing your accommodation yourself; I recommend that you choose a place close to the center where the procedure will be performed. Because waste of time in traffic may be more than you expect.
Many hair transplants centers in Istanbul, but…
Istanbul becoming very preferred regarding hair transplants has led to the opening of a new hair transplantation center every day. In addition, the number of agencies bringing patients to the city for hair transplant from Europe and different parts of the world has increased. However, it is important to know that not every agent behaves with responsibility and that not every hair transplant center works with an expert team and new state of the art equipment. For this reason, I recommend you to focus on finding the service provider that will give you the best results and not just look at the cheapest hair transplantation center in Istanbul or the option to have a hair transplant in Istanbul at an affordable price.
Turkey is much preferred for hair transplants, but who wants to undergo hair transplants? Let’s talk about this …
