Have you looked at how much Dr Keser charges Mb30?

His results look very good on (link removed by moderator - see Terms of Service) but I don't know enough about the clinic to recommend him and he might still not be suitable but just a suggestion.

Gatsu has had very good results on here from him so maybe you could mail him and ask him some questions regarding him and his clinic.

Based on vast research and meeting patients, I travelled to see Dr Feller in New York to get repaired.

I charge 8.00/graft and after spending all day doing a larger FUE I wish we'd charged way more....FUE is hard on everyone, me, my graft removers, and the patient laying face down for 5 or 6 hours.

I do hear from prospective patients about every other week, that 2 of my local competitors are doing FUE for 3.00 a graft so there can be considerable variability in pricing....but likely variability in the punch size as well.

As in all hair cases, the patient/consumer should do good research prior to making a decision on whether FUE vs strip is the best choice for them, and then to inquire about the doctor's, that they are considering, experience with the technique they desire.

That's far too much to pay MB30.

3,000 grafts FUE + a flight of around EUR 800 would be approximately EUR 7,800 where i went in Istanbul.

I paid around GBP 4,500, or EUR 5,700 for 2,800 grafts, but my flight would only have been EUR 300. That's everything, flights, accomodation, pre car, surgery, meds, post care pack, pick ups and drop offs etc...

There are many tax relief benefits in Turkey, so the rates are cheaper and they are very advanced in FUE.

If you need any more info, feel free to message me and i can run you through it all. I'd happily help you save EUR 6,000 !!! (you can buy me a beer with the savings )

FUE Cost really varies...

Here prices of my top FUE doctors...

Dr. Jose Lorenzo: [Euro 6 (first 1000 grafts) Euro 4 (after 2000 grafts to 3000 grafts) Euro 2.5 (From 3000 grafts and above)]

Dr. Bisanga: (EURO 5 per graft up to 1000 grafts and then its EURO 3).

Dr. Feller: ($10 per graft- Flat rate) (Most expensive)

FUE prices these days in reputed clinics are ranging from $7-$10 per graft, In my opinion any FUE costs above $8 is too much to me.

First of all, I also lose hair. I have checked several clinics in Istanbul, Turkey. I am a travel agent and I also arrange hotel reservations and airport transfers for clinics in Istanbul.
For FUE, in Istanbul they charge different rates per hair graft. There is only one hair clinic so far I know they charge for operation. It doesn't matter how many hair grafts they will transplant. Hair Transplantation fee is 1250 Euro. I witnessed one patient had 1200 Hair Grafts because Doctor refused to get more as his head's back had no good condition. Dubai guy told that he had an operation in Thailand. I also saw another turkish guy had apprx 4000 hairgrafts. Doctor in this clinic doesn't increase the price offer as I found it very "resonable". Every day roughly 10-20 people are having operations. Most of them are from Middle East Countries. I asked If I need an operation. He told me that no, original hair is always the best. Use these tablets, maybe mezotherapy. If he was eager of money, I think that he could recommend me to have the operation. so I trusted him. In my mind I have checked several clinics in Istanbul. If you decide to have a FUE operation, make sure that team is experienced. 13000 Euro is a lot for an operation in Turkey. Most expensive clinics can charge maximum 3000 Euro in Turkey. Hotel costs are low. I saw a lot people who had operation and came to Turkey to have another operation.
That doctor told me that your backside will give an opportunity you to have 4-5 times hair transplantation. One operation and then after 6 months another operation.
In western countries it might be a normal price but after I talked to patients of that doctor, I think so it is a very expensive price offer.

This is one of the reasons why i chose to have the work done in Istanbul, the surgeons never seem to push you into anything to get money, they just want to do the best work they can to fulfill your requirements.

In Turkey, the cosmetic surgery business is, and always has been big. As a result, the surgeons work very hard to be the best and get the best results. They know that if they do bad surgery, their career in Turkey would be ruined, so never do anything to damage that.

The reason for the cheaper prices in Turkey is due to a)Government benefits/tax relief to promote international medical care and b) because there is internal competition within the private clinics to bring the patients in.

I was skeptical about travelling to Istanbul for my HT at first, but after speaking to the surgeons and seeing the facilities and results, it was the best choice i could have made.... and was considerably cheaper than elsewhere

Do not think a reputable clinic could stay in business here in the states at those prices.

Lorenzo must be making some serious bank. However he does all the extractions and planting so you really get what you pay for. Feriduni and Bisanga are well priced too for European outfits.

Far cheaper in Turkey and India.
Apart from a couple of pioneers, American prices from the 'old school' FUE guys are excessive and a designed to reflect FUE as a 'special boutique' procedure for 'special' people with 'special' charactersitics. Its all a croc. FUE suits anyone. Wehn it became apparant to these guys that FUE would boom, out came the the Feller punch, designed to make FUE easier and prices to fall? Oh how hard they fell!! Lol

Then we have the laws that make America technicians rather less hands-on, forcing the doctor to punch the grafts. As well as the robots and machines that make their own hype and prices to justify them.

Nothing is cheaper than an army of techs rotating on your head - and yet, what a risk- something that you as a consumer, by shrewd deduction has to find out all about. I find it extremely difficult and get stumped by the way things go. Remember things change too.
