FUE treatment in Turkey - 4000 grafts in 8 hours

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

 

I have been investigating HT in Turkey as it seems to be very popular there amongst tourists. However, 2 things have taken my attention firstly its hard to tell which clinic is good because there are a lot of conflicting stories on review sites. One place to be careful of I am told is Whatclinic.com regarding reviews because this site gets commission of some sort from the clinics and they are all paid reviews. When I was browsing thru their site I noticed I didnt come across any negative reviews. Now that is not something that you come across often. But when I researched the same clinic thru are review sites, BINGO! there were mixed reviews which seemed more realistic in their comments. So be sure not to solely rely on Whatclinic.com when researching clinics.

 

The other thing is the cost. Some of these clinics are doing FUE treatment for a fixed price of approx $1690 euros includes airport transfers, breakfast and 2 days hotel accomadation. Regardless of wether it is 500 grafts or 4000 grafts. Whats more interesting is they are claiming to be able to do 4000 to 5000 grafts in 8 hours (is that possible?). The clinics claiming this are Transest and Cosmedica in Istanbul, Turkey.

 

Does anyone know of any good Dr's in Turkey. Thanks

sounds like a technician based clinic that has multiple procedures a day stay well away if I was you. go to a recommended doctor from this site. it will be more expensive but worth it.

I totally agree with you. I think one important factor about these big clinics which claim to have multiple doctors generally get unqualified doctors/assistants/nurses to do the procedure to the point where the Turkish government has now made it a legal requirement for a qualified surgeon to be doing the HT surgery from start to finish.

 

I think I will be getting Dr Gokhan Gur from Istanbul to do HT in January/February. My cousin and a few of his friends used him and said he was great and most importantly he deals with you personally and does the surgery himself. Sill researching the Dr. but Im pretty optimistic

can't say I've heard of him but if you've seen proof of his work in person and you're happy with his results thats all that counts. I wish you all the best mate. hope it all turns out well for you.

Thank you. My cousin is the fussiest person I know and his hair looks great. Also I couldnt find any bad reviews about this doctor. My decision is purely based on those factors.

 

Even though I have done FUE in the past and know what to expect Im still nervous about the whole thing.

just make sure you go with the right person and it feels right for you. also it wouldn't hurt to get an evaluation(s) from different doctors just to make sure you are not missing anything.

Absolutely. When I fly over to Turkey I will be staying there for about 5-6 weeks. Giving me enough time to consult with other doctors and recovery time after surgery.

4000 grafts in 8 hours, i don't think so...even if they did achieve that the top FUE docs can only do 3000 grafts in one day depending on the patient, but even then it would probably take 10 hours, so i'd stay well clear of that clinic.

 

For all you know they putting in 2000 and charging you for 4000.

I also found it hard to believe that 4000-5000 grafts in 8 hours would be impossible. Which is why I am staying away.

The clinic sounds like cosmedica, which is where i went one month ago. I got 4500 grafts. I will do a thourough write up about my experience soon, but im currently travelling through thailand, cambodia an australia.

 

Have i taken a big risk going to this clinic ? Yes i have......dr does extractions and slits, technicians place the grafts..

 

It was a risk no doubt so time will tell. I went for a very conservative hairline. From what i have heard about this clinic they do hit the results. Its a basic clinic, aftercare isnt great, english isnt great, its what it says on the tin. I went in with my eyes wide open.

 

Everything is healing well so far with me.......but time will tell

You must rely on your research as a consumer and credentials of the surgeon. 'Whatclinic' isn't a website that is regulated by any hair loss authority or agency. Reviews are in the forums. Take your time and find the results, but only believe a percentage of what you read. If you can't find a clinic's results, it may not be the one that you should consult, or it may not be in your most convenient geographical locations.

 

A person looking for hair transplant surgery has to know that the outcome will be a natural-looking result. It's sad that repair costs more than the hair transplant.

 

Labor is the greatest factor in pricing. A clinic performing 4000 FUE grafts in 8 hours is suspect. Experience is proven with the evidence of aesthetically pleasing results.

Hi Amri.

 

I read your post on Dr Cinik and send him a mail. I got a reply back straight away saying 1900€ for unlimited grafts fue . does this sound right? They said they can do 4000 in 8 hours. Does the doctor do the surgery? Any pics of your procedure.

Thanks

Mick

What I would like to know that if Istanbul has now become such a major hub for FUE treatment andbthousands of people a week are flocking in to have surgery done at these amazing prices and with excellent results why can places like UK not do the same ? We have the expertise and equipment and the doctors so does it boil down to just greedy doctors who want to peel as much money from his patients!

 

Surely if they were doing as many transplant per day as doctors in Turkey they could afford it? Why would you pay so much more to a UK doctor? I mean it is almost 4 x the price!
