I chose the Smile Hair clinic according to reviews and estimates, upon arrival I immediately won over to myself
The staff is simply gorgeous, you feel like a child that absolutely everyone takes care of, they were met at the Istanbul airport, escorted to the hotel, and from there to all the procedures. The cost of the hotel was already included in the final price list, which was discussed back in Russia. It took a very long time to decide on the transplant procedure, now I regret that I did not do it before (it is not clear why I was shy or afraid) I chose the Smile Hair clinic according to reviews and estimates, upon arrival I immediately won over to myself, they are also fed a delicious lunch after the operation, they conduct a care course for hair during rehabilitation + give all sorts of tools and a very detailed manual (after reading which all questions crawl away) Dr. Akhmedov is a professional in his field! Now I have the 9th day after the procedure, the recovery is perfect. Also thanks to my curator Anna from the bookimed service, instant answers to questions and incredibly fast provision of information

He is INCREDIBLE both as a person and as a doctor
Staying in the clinic, according to the attention paid, sensations and impressions, it is difficult even to associate with the word "clinic". This is just a completely new quality level of medical service. My doctor was Dr. Erdogan, the founder of the clinic. When I saw him, all my doubts and the slightest worries simply evaporated. He is INCREDIBLE both as a person and as a doctor. I am very glad that he was the one who took care of my treatment. All other employees are also wonderful people, and I am very grateful to them for the impeccable organization of the entire process. Separately, I would like to thank Yersin, since it was he who organized and calmly and clearly answered all my questions. Only 6 days have passed, and it's too early to talk about the results, but now everything is ... so far so good :)

Overall, I’m satisfied with the service and quality of the procedure
Overall had a very positive experience throughout right from landing in Istanbul to my hair procedure. The clinic’s services and communications was exceptional. They were very patience in clearing my doubts before arriving in Istanbul. Regarding my procedure, the doctor explained the overall procedure and answered all my queries the consultation. I found the doctor’s assistance who operated on me very dedicated and comforting. The pain was minimal and everything went smoothly. Although the technicians where doing the procedure, i was expecting the doctor to check on my procedure frequently by visiting during the surgery. Overall, I’m satisfied with the service and quality of the procedure. Will give feedback on the hair growth and success after i see the results in future

Bookimed is an awesome company that I’m happy to use again and recommend to anybody looking for a good clinic for their needs
Support was great. Very informative and communicative. Whenever I had any questions, they were answered to their best ability. Only thing I had an error with was that I was told my accompanying partner was hosted as well under the package for the hotel but it ha don’t been covered and was charged later on. And also there was a 10% fee for using credit card by the clinic. Wish I knew this I could’ve saved a hefty amount of dollars in a fee. Other than that, Bookimed is an awesome company that I’m happy to use again and recommend to anybody looking for a good clinic for their needs.

So far (2 weeks have passed) healing is going well
Many thanks for organizing the whole process. Consultant Katerina Korczak was very kind and patiently answered all questions. In the clinic itself, there are some inconsistencies in the process (in particular, they almost forgot to take them to the airport for the return flight), but in general, everything is also not bad. There were questions about the correctness of the choice of the hairline in the face ... but I hope for the best and I will see the result in a year. I will update the review. So far (2 weeks have passed) healing is going well.

What is hair transplant?

Hair transplant or hair restoration is a surgical, minimally invasive procedure used for male and female baldness treatment. The operation also restores beard hair, eyelashes, eyebrows, chest hair, and helps to make scars after the surgery or accident less noticeable.

For the hair transplant procedure, the doctor removes grafts (hair follicles) from the donor site and plants them to a recipient site – the balding part.

How does hair transplant work?

Hair transplant helps to renovate the balded areas with healthy growing hair.

During the procedure, the doctor replaces the grafts from the hair-breading part of the scalp to a balded area. In 2-3 weeks, the planted hair falls out, but the follicle stays in the same place.

In 8-12 months, the healthy, natural-looking and permanent hair starts growing.

What are the methods of hair transplant?
  • FUE (Follicular Hair Extraction) – one of the most popular hair transplant methods in 2019. For the procedure, the doctor uses micro blades, which are a grain of sand size, to avoid scars and provide fast recovery for the patient (3-5 days).
  • Sapphire FUE is a kind of FUE hair transplant. The main difference with FUE is in the use of special sapphire tip, which makes even smaller and more accurate punctures, than a steel one. Sapphire FUE costs more than a traditional FUE but gives faster recovery opportunities.
  • DHI (Direct Hair Implantation) – an advanced and new method of hair restoration. For the DHI procedure, the doctor uses a special implant pen called CHOI. This device allows to combine grafts collection and planting. It reduces the procedure time and enables to perform surgery without prior shaving. The doctor plants new hairs among the existing ones.
  • Robotic hair transplant is the procedure performed by the ARTAS system. The manual hair transplant (commonly FUE), in combination with the ARTAS, gives a better result. The system consists of robotic arms and cameras, which assist the doctor during the procedure. This method reduces human error and provides a faster recovery for the patient.
  • FUT (Follicular Unit Transplant) – the traditional method of hair transplant, which becomes less popular these days. For the procedure, the doctor uses the linear strip from the back of the head as the donor site. FUT is the cheapest hair transplant method among others. However, the technique leaves the significant scar on the donor area, and the recovery after the procedure takes around 2 weeks.
Who are the best candidates for hair transplant?
  • People ages 18 or older
  • men with a genetic baldness
  • women with thinning hair and alopecia
  • people with scars after surgery or accident.

Hair transplant can't be performed for:

  • people after chemotherapy
  • people who don't have enough grafts
  • people with keloid scars.
Is hair transplant safe?

The hair restoration surgery is usually a safe procedure when performed by a qualified and experienced doctor. But the risk of allergic drug reaction and duration of the healing process are very individual. The results of the medical evaluation can predict some risks, and some of them are common to every invasive procedure – infection, excessive bleeding, and grafts rejection.

What is the recovery time after hair transplant?

The recovery time after hair transplant depends on the chosen technique. On average, after the FUE, DHI, and robotic hair transplant, the recovery time is 2-5 days; than the patient can return to work. ISAPS recommends patients to return to strenuous activities in 5-10 days after the procedure.

After the FUT hair transplant, the recovery takes up to 2 weeks.

How much is hair transplant?

The average price of a hair transplant procedure depends on a chosen country.

In the USA and Great Britain, the hair transplant cost ranges from $4,000 to $20,000 per procedure.

But, hospitals in some countries provide special offers — hair transplant packages. It's an excellent opportunity to get the cheapest hair transplant and save money.

A hair transplant package is provided by the Bookimed partner clinics worldwide.

In Turkey, the average cost of a hair transplant package is $1,950; in South Korea is $6,500, and in Poland — $4,500.

Where to do the cheapest hair transplant?

The cheapest hair transplant package is provided in Turkey — the minimum price is $1,150, and the maximum is $3,150. The average cost for the hair transplant in Turkey is $2,050.

What does a hair transplant package include?

The hair transplant package is a set of services that the patient needs for surgery abroad.

The main advantage of the package is the fixed price. The package offers may vary according to the clinic, but commonly they include:

  • consultation with the doctor
  • medical tests
  • the procedure itself
  • pre- and postoperative consultation
  • medication
  • transfers
