Turkey, one of the leading countries in health tourism has reached an aesthetic financial size of over $2 billion by the year 2020. However, Turkey’s economy was almost collapsed by the August 2018 Turkish Lira Crysis caused by some political actions. The country’s currency has lost 30% of its value against the other currencies in the world and this also increased the attention of tourists in every aspect of the visit.
Turkey is considered one of the fastest-growing economies in the world and located in some unique place where it connects eastern and western civilizations together. Istanbul, the unofficial capital of Turkey has so many clinics that were founded to perform aesthetic-purposed procedures. These clinics offer tourists such low prices who consider getting an aesthetic procedure, especially hair transplants in a foreign country.
But there is something may be seen as wrong with this picture. Why are the hair transplants are so cheaper in Turkey? We know that almost all the clinics offer packages of services which include airport transportation, accommodation, and surgery fees.
Comparing Turkish Hair Transplantation with Others
London is famous for its expensive aesthetic procedures. A typical hair transplant procedure is 5 times more expensive than one in Turkey. Does that mean they are any better than Turkish clinics?
The main reason for such a difference in prices is the currency as we simply mentioned at the very beginning of our post. Not just the hair transplantation or any other aesthetical procedures are cheap in Turkey, but goods, transportation, accommodation, tourism industry as well.
The clinics in Turkey are accredited and approved by most of the known European clinics. Most Turkish surgeons get educations on plastic surgery. It can be understood that there are so many Turkish clinics who also have offices in Europe and the U.S.
However, it is always best to see the results first hand. Today, all the clinics have their own websites and before-after photos can be seen by simply visiting these websites.
