LONGEVITA TURKEY yes or no ??

Recommended Posts

Help needed - I am very close to be booking my hair transplant with Longevita in Turkey but can’t see any real reviews but only what’s on their website. Does anyone have any experiences of them and would you recommend? They currently have an offer on at the moment £1300 for 4000 gafts including transfers and accomodation. Seems too good to be true see my pic below. Also I will be going with a friend too who is having it done as never had an operation before and very very nervous. Thanks all ?

I dont know how many times I have seen this question regarding Longevita ,they are not a clinic  ,they are middle -men who broker hair transplant between  patients and various clinics . You need to name the clinic who you are thinking of going with and ask has anyone been with them .

I went with Longevita  nearly 4 years ago when Dr Resat was on their books ,I Had a good result  but I have no idea if the clinics they have on their books presently  are producing good results or not .

I hope you didn't make the mistake of going through Longevita.

The previous Drs they have had on there books seem to have produced reasonable work. I didn't do my research and assumed i would get a result through this company. The only 2 Drs on the website now are not even medical Drs. I was operated on by Yasemin Turgut. There is only one other option for a hair transplant on the website so they must have changed the way they operate. To cut a long story short i got a terrible result and its haunting me on a daily basis. For another 50% on top of what i paid i could have gone with one of the best in Turkey.

You said it yourself. It sounds too good to be true. 4000 grafts at that price. How does that even make sense. Consider the quality in staff you must be getting! Don't do it!

Once you make your decision purely on price, the quality usually suffers and therefore so does the patient.

@Lukazoid we find this presentation completely one sided and unfair. Like in all countries and in all sectors, there are good companies and not so good companies. You can't blame the whole country or the whole industry for the poor work or unethical practice of a few companies. UK clinics or European associations are negatively biased against Turkey because they are losing a lot of patients to Turkish clinics some of which do an excellent job in hair transplant for a fraction of the UK prices.

@Longevita

How are you?

Thank you for becoming part of the discussion and you comment in a very respectful manner. I appreciate that.

You are correct, this is a one sided presentation/point of view. I have no desire to be confrontational, however I have personally been contacted by many patients that have had sub standard results after procedures in Turkey, and some who have been left in precarious situations. The pure numbers of patients that have negative experiences in Turkey in relation to other countries, tell a true story. It is not coincidence. Therefore, whilst you are absolutely correct in regards that any city/country/continent will have good clinics and bad clinics. Unfortunately, with the upmost respect, it is fact that Turkey has far more problematic clinics with technician led surgeries, than they do reputable ethical clinics. So when somebody advises caution to a not so well known clinic in Turkey, it isn't always personal to the clinic (such as in your case), it is meant to be personal to the individual/patient. Saying to them, please express caution. Turkey is a complicated country in regards to ethical hair restoration clinics. Of course there a some very respected and ethical physicians in Turkey that find it hard to fairly grow their reputation due to the overall reputation of the industry in their country.

Where are you from? Are you based in Turkey? This is a nice opportunity for you to potentially educate us about your clinic and Dr, and explain to us what sets you apart from other Turkish clinics that are technician driven and have 8+ patients a day, with no bespoke service or approach. 

You seem like an intelligent individual, so you can understand concern about the industry in Turkey and their "medical tourism" approach.

You are correct in regards to other European/North American clinics expressing concern that they are "losing" patients to Turkish clinics. But this isn't due to the fact that they are genuinely losing revenue, it is the fact that many Turkish clinics are attracting patients with unfair and untrue marketing and incomparable pricing whilst offering incredibly inferior quality and results and therefore threatening the reputation of hair restoration industry as a whole.

If a Turkish clinic, or a clinic from any country for that matter, is acting ethically and transparently, and demonstrate a service and surgery that the patient deserves and offer their patient the appropriate and individual long term motivated approach, then I would be absolutely happy to recommend and support them.
