There are several reasons:

  1. Turkey is trying to position itself as a global health tourism destination. The initiatives related to the sector are being heavily subsidized by the Turkish government to continue growing the sector.
  2. This type of hair implant surgery has been practiced in Turkey for more than 20 years. Turkey is one of the main world destinations for this type of surgery, where in 2016 over 100,000 hair transplants have been surpassed. The high demand makes the competition very large, more than 500 clinics in the country, which makes the prices go down.
  3. The fees for medical equipment and the maintenance costs of medical centers are lower in Turkey.
  4. The devaluation of the Turkish lira has also helped to lower the cost of hair implants.

At first, all types of baldness are treatable. In any case, our technicians, together with our medical team, will evaluate your case and recommend the best solution to treat it while meeting your expectations.

The ideal process is planned to have a duration of 4 days, understanding day 1 as the trip to Turkey. In any case, our technicians will inform you of the exact duration that your treatment requires.

Without a doubt. In fact, most of our patients extend their stay in Turkey to enjoy both Istanbul and other parts of Turkey.

In we also offer vacation packages that fit the duration you indicate.

The duration of the surgery is between 4-8 hours. For more detailed information, check the section Your Implant: Before, during and after.

  • 7 days before the date agreed for the intervention, no anticoagulant medication should be taken (including aspirin, medication against depression, analgesics, as well as vitamin E, B and / or any other multivitamin compound).
  • Alcohol should not be consumed for a period of at least 3 days from the date of surgery.
  • Smoking should not be done for at least 24 hours before the date of surgery.
  • Don´t cut your hair.

Undoubtedly, you should only consider a list of guidelines to keep the area well maintained to ensure that the results of the implant are the desired ones. You can see what you have to do to take care of the donor and transplanted area in the next question

  • During a period of 7-10 days after the transplant, the transplanted area must be protected.
  • The bandage that is applied after the implant will be removed 1-2 days after the implant.
  • The hair should be washed every day. Your doctor will explain how to perform this process.
  • From the 7th day, the scabs of the scalp will begin to disappear.
  • After the implant you should avoid bathing in a pool, the sea or the use of solariums for a period of at least 2 weeks.
  • You should not consume alcohol for a period of at least 3 days after implantation.
  • During the 10 days after implantation, any activity that produces contact or friction with the scalp should be avoided.
  • The head must remain elevated of the body constantly during the 10 days after the implant. Do not do strenuous activities, weight lifting no matter how small, or any physical exercise.
  • To sleep, the use of 2 pillows is recommended to ensure that the head is elevated relative to the body.
  • The donor and transplant area should not be exposed to the sun until all crusts have fallen. This process usually lasts normally around ten days. In case a slight exposure to sunlight is unavoidable, the use of a hat that does not exert any pressure on the head is recommended.
  • You should not scratch your head.
  • It is recommended that you drink a large amount of liquids and that you try to avoid the consumption of sugar and salt for at least a period of 10 days from the intervention.

Before the implant you do not have to take any medication, but if you are doing it, you must inform us in advance so that we can inform you of any possible contraindications. What you should keep in mind is the medications or supplements that should not be taken:

  • 7 days before the date agreed for the intervention, no anticoagulant medication should be taken (including aspirin, medication against depression, analgesics, as well as vitamin E, B and / or any other multivitamin compound).

During the first 5 days after surgery, antibiotics are prescribed to patients. In addition, during the first 2 days after surgery, patients usually take analgesics, against swelling and a stomach protector if necessary.

For postoperative complications caused by the hospital, the hospital covers all costs associated with the performance of a revision surgery. In addition, it will cover the hotel and travel expenses of the patient up to EUR 500.

FUE is the acronym for Follicular Unit Extraction.

This modern technique of hair transplantation has been used since 2004. This treatment is more advanced than the previous transplant methods, such as transplantation of strips and FUT.

FUE is a method of extracting or “harvesting” donor hair from an existing follicular unit.

In FUE hair transplants, an instrument is used to make a small circular incision in the skin around a follicular unit, separating it from the surrounding tissue. And these follicles are those implanted in the receiving area. Click here for more information

DHI is the acronym in English of Direct Hair Implantation, whose meaning in Spanish is Direct Hair Implantation.

DHI is the most modern and progressive innovation in hair implantation to achieve healthier and more natural results.

With DHI, the hair follicles are implanted one by one directly into the transplant area in a specific direction, angle and depth using a special DHI implant tool. Click here for more information

The FUE or DHI technique used in all FUECAPILAR transplants use the hair follicles extracted from the donor areas (back and side of the head), these follicles are genetically programmed to resist the hormones responsible for hair loss. These follicles maintain their genetic characteristics in the receptor area. This makes the results of the implant permanent.

Scars of less than 1 millimeter can be formed in the donor area after this surgery. When the surrounding hair grows these spots will be invisible. Therefore, the hair transplant with the FUE method leaves no visible scars.

Yes it is possible, but in any case, this decision should be consulted with a specialist doctor. Our doctors and technicians will advise you on this.

Of course, in fact it is very normal. In the case that you want to come accompanied by a family member and / or friend, please contact us and we will inform you of the different options since these depend on the package contracted.

The survival rate of our hair transplants is very consistent.

In FUECAPILAR we take care of all the steps so that the follicular unit reaches the receiving area without any damage.

However, we are committed to our patients whom did not achieve the desired results after one year (or 18 months if the hair transplant was done in the crown) of the intervention, provided that they have complied with the post-op indications and have sent the required photographs in the postoperative follow-up.

We require our patients to strictly follow our post-surgical indications and send the photographs on the indicated dates (days 5, 10, 15 and 30, as well as 3, 6, 9, 12, 15 and 18 months) to make this guarantee valid.


In operations where the implanted area cannot be shaved (on patient request), the guarantee drops significantly as we do not work in the ideal technical conditions.
