 @Gatsby has the knowledge when it comes to the Hair Transplant in Australia so he should answer this.

but anyways the best doctors are not in turkey so don’t be restricted to a country. 
what Norwood are you? Do you use medication and do you have some pic to share? :)

Gatsby will be along shortly. I'm sure he will recommend you avoid a surgery in Australia since there are no reputable surgeons there. As has been said, Turkey is well known for hair surgery but there are many clinics there who deliver sub par results and relatively few good surgeons.

If I were you, I'd check the recommended list on here and draw up a shortlist. Many Australians seem to favour Asia due to ease of travel and there are some high quality surgeons there that are good value.

Avoid Australia -- haven't ever seen anything good from there, and our resident expert, @Gatsby, can speak more to the poor state of industry as well. If you are going to go cheap and visit a hairmill in Turkey such as Vera, Smile, Tarcan, or Este-anything, you might as well risk getting botched locally.

If you go to Turkey, make sure you do your research; there's some phenomenal doctors, but just like anywhere, the vast majority of hair transplant doctors are terrible. I'd suggest looking into Pekiner, Kesser, Bekir, Bicer, Gur/Turan, etc. Other options I'm less fond of are Yaman and HLC, but they are also safer choices than going to a mill.

To echo the sentiments of others... Why Aus vs Turkey? Turkey is mostly terrible as a HT destination and Australia has no reputable surgeons that anyone can recommend. You have far better options in Thailand and India and it would also cut down on some of your travel time and expense.

Forget about surgery in Australia. Surgeons here charge the same price as the most elite in the world yet still don’t understand or care that doubles are planted in the front hairline, or that the crown is used as a donor source! As for Turkey there are a handful of surgeons who are excellent but I fear you are researching via location and price which is a recipe doomed for regret. Take the advice of @Britanium above and look at Dr Laorwong for starters. There are patients posted results by patients that will steer you in the right direction. LooK at patients who have s similar level of hair loss that have achieved the goals you are trying to seek. Then look st which doctor/s is performing these results and go from there. Wishing you all the best. 👍

As mentioned by others previously, I haven't come across any standout hair transplant practitioners in Australia. Turkey does have some reputable doctors in this field, but it's worth noting that excellent surgeons can be found in other parts of the world too. So, rather than focusing solely on one or two countries, it's advisable to broaden your search to consider all potential options. So look for doctors in Turkey but also look for doctors in other parts of the world which can broaden your options. Ultimately, what matters most is the skill and proficiency of the surgeon, regardless of where they're located geographically.

I am based in Perth also.

After my experience and most from this forum the only surgeon I can recommend is Dr Laorwong.

Excellent results, very well priced, close to Australia, well credentialed. 
 

Above all a surgeon who genuinely cares about your results.
