Among the many areas covered by health tourism, the most preferred operation in recent years is hair surgery. Turkey, thanks to the successful hair operations carried out and appropriate price policy, its leading position in the hair implant is likely to continue throughout the years.
Istanbul is the city most preferred for plantation operations in Turkey. One of the most interesting cities in the world with all the sights and history of Istanbul, is also the capital of aesthetic operations in Turkey. Having the opportunity to discover the city while having the hair transplant performed in a period of 4-5 days is quite attractive by all tourists.

When price/performance chart is concerned, it is not surprising that Turkey is the leading country in the field of hair transplantation.
Achievements and level of expertise of physicians, used technology, having a touristic trip at the same time and reasonable prices make the Turkey and Istanbul right address.
