If you have a receding hairline, or have gone completely bald at the top of your head, Turkey offers some brilliant solutions to the problem. Hair transplants are some of the most popular and famous procedures that are done in Turkey. Turkish doctors have perfected the practice of transplanting hair so much that a sizeable portion of all medical tourists who come to Turkey are those who are getting a hair transplant.
There are multiple techniques to transplant hair, but the one most used in Turkey is the FUE technique. In this procedure, the hair follicles are taken from the sides of the head and then transplanted on top, one by one. This ensures that there is no visible scarring, and that the whole head is covered evenly.
Hair transplant is so popular in Turkey that literally every center that offers cosmetic surgery offers hair transplant, as well. Numerous centers have started opening wards for hair transplant, as well, seeing how their colleagues are faring and how popular the procedure is. Here are the medical centers offering hair transplant in Turkey.
