Medical tourism has become more and more popular over the years with procedures ranging from hair transplants, plastic surgery, to dental work and more. Turkey has now become a major destination for all types of medical procedures. This is due to the cheaper cost compared to other countries as well as the excellent medical care provided by Turkish hospitals and clinics. People from all over the world travel to Istanbul, Turkey for all types of medical procedures.
Hair transplants are probably the most popular medical procedures to be done in Turkey. Hair transplants can take as little as 6 hours up to 15 hours spread out over 2 days. It is a nonsurgical operation in which hair follicles are taken from the donor site, which is usually the back of the scalp, and are transplanted to the bald areas. Hair can be transplanted to the eyebrows, beard, and mustache, and of course, the head.
There is a wide range of cosmetic treatments that are provided in most beauty clinics in Turkey. These include plasma injections, botox, fillers, facelifts, hydra facials, and more. All of these are non-surgical procedures that don’t take very long and are fairly quick in recovery time.
Another very popular field in medical tourism is that of plastic surgery procedures. Liposuction, rhinoplasty, tummy tuck, gastric bypass, gastric balloon, body etching, eyelid lift, ear surgery, and more are all provided by hospitals and clinics in Turkey.
From teeth whitening to veneers, to a full mouth of implants, Turkey is an amazing place to get all the dental work done that you need. There are hundreds of clinics across Turkey that provide excellent dental care, and whose doctors have years of experience and knowledge.
