General questions regarding hair transplant in Istanbul
If you have a hair transplant at our clinic in Istanbul, you will get the exact same result as you would if you had a hair transplant at one of our clinics in Sweden. It is the same staff that carries out the procedure. The largest differences are the price, the amount of PRP after-treatments, and the practical aspects in regard to travel. The staff speaks English rather than Swedish, you get the time to relax at a hotel, but also to explore the wonderful city of Istanbul. If you have your hair transplant in Sweden, it costs more, but you get to rest at home after the procedure.
3 nights at a 4-star hotel, which is centrally located is included in the trip. Also included is transportation between the airport and the hotel. A free follow up, along with 1 PRP after treatment at one of our clinics in Sweden is also included, to promote the healing of the transplanted hair.
After each hair transplant, we offer one PRP treatment without additional costs at one of our clinics in Sweden. If you’d like additional treatments on the area of the transplant they cost 2 500 SEK a piece.
Questions about traveling to Turkey
Our staff in Istanbul speaks fluent Turkish and English.
The hotel is centrally located and the clinic is located in the same building as the hotel.
It is important that you keep track of the expiration date on your passport. Your passport needs to be valid for six months after the date of your return trip in order to enter Turkey. If the time is shorter than that you risk being denied entry. Entry to the country can also be denied if you travel with a damaged passport. Temporary passports and Alien’s passports are not accepted for entry to Turkey.
You can absolutely do that! A lot of people choose to bring a relative or a friend for support, but also to experience the beautiful city of Istanbul together with someone else. The plane ticket for your company is not included and is paid for separately.
Questions regarding health on the trip
The risk of infection is very low, and after the hair transplant you also receive antibiotics for preemptive purposes. As long as you don’t allow dirty surfaces to come in contact with your head you shouldn’t have to worry.
The cabin pressure on the plane might make the swelling increase slightly, but it usually goes back down after a day or two.
