In recent years, increasing numbers of people across Europe and North America are taking advantage of cheaper prices than in their home country by heading to Turkey in pursuit of a new head of hair. Hair transplants are typically completed in just a few hours – not including pre-procedure consultations – and as long as you take it easy you’re free to explore and feel the breeze on your freshly laid locks as soon as the procedure is complete. We’ve compared more than 40 Turkish clinics that offer a hair transplant package and hand-picked 10 of the best below

Hermest Hair Transplant Clinic

Located in the sprawling residential area of Üsküdar on Istanbul’s Asian side, Hermest Hair Transplant Clinic is widely considered among the best hair transplant clinics in Turkey, having received many international awards over the years for its services.

One of the clinic’s hair transplant surgeons is a cardiologist (Dr. Ahmet) and the other (Dr.Esra) is a dermatologist.
