Turkey is the leading choice for affordable hair transplantation in the world. With over 500 established hair transplantation clinics, most of which are in Istanbul, thousands of people travel from all over the world to seek a long-term solution to their hair loss. The cost of a hair transplant in Turkey can vary depending on the clinic you go to, the experience of the surgeon, and the number of grafts you need. The more severe your hair loss is, the more grafts you’ll need, and the costlier your procedure will be. Below, we’ll go over the cost and some of the most important things you need to know depending on the number of grafts you need.
1000 Grafts Hair Transplant Cost in Turkey
Patients with minimal hair loss often require a hair transplant intervention of around 1,000 grafts. In most cases, such patients experience hair loss around the crown or frontal area of their scalp, which can quickly and painlessly be restored back to how it once looked. A 1,000 hair graft transplant surgery takes no more than a few hours, which means that the whole surgery will be done within the day. The cost per graft in Turkey can vary from $1.3 to $4 per graft, depending on the clinic and surgeon you go to. When it comes to hair transplant operations, price is not something you want to compromise on, as you get what you pay for.
2000 Grafts Hair Transplant Cost in Turkey
A 2,000 hair graft transplant is a suitable choice for patients with a noticeable amount of hair loss. Most patients that require this amount of grafts are experiencing a receding hairline at the frontal area of their scalp that, in some cases, reaches as far as the mid-scalp. At Dr. Yaman’s clinic, a two thousand hair grafts procedure usually takes a few hours and is almost always completed on the same day. The average hair transplant cost for such a procedure is between $1.3 to $4 per graft.
3000 Grafts Hair Transplant Cost in Turkey
Most patients visiting Dr. Resul Yaman’s hair transplant clinic in Istanbul need a procedure that requires around 3,000 grafts. Patients that require 3,000 grafts most commonly experience either frontal recession or general thinning hair all over the top side of the scalp. A 3,000 grafts procedure with Dr. Yaman takes just over half a day to complete, from start to finish. The price per graft in Turkey differs on a per-graft basis. The current hair transplant costs in Turkey average between $1.3 and $4 per graft, which is much more affordable than if you were to do your hair transplant at a clinic in your country.
4000 Grafts Hair Transplant Cost in Turkey
Patients with moderate to severe hair loss often require around 4,000 grafts to fully restore the look and the volume of the hair that they once had. The majority of patients that require 4,000 grafts often have hair loss in the frontal, mid-scalp, and even the crown sections of the scalp. The typical 4,000-grafts hair transplant at Dr. Yaman’s clinic will likely take one full day as Dr. Yaman’s hair transplantation capacity is between 4,000 and 4,500 grafts in a single day. Hair transplant prices in Turkey vary from $1.3 to $4 per graft, meaning you should expect your procedure to cost you at least a few thousand dollars. Despite that, the price is still times more affordable than in any other country in the west, such as the United States, Germany, France, and Spain.
5000 Grafts Hair Transplant Cost in Turkey
Hair transplant treatments that require 5,000 grafts of hair are mostly suitable for patients with severe hair loss in several areas of the scalp, including frontal, mid-scalp, and crown. It is a more complex procedure and will require you to visit Dr. Yaman’s clinic twice (as he can typically complete between 4,000 and 4,500 grafts in a single day). The typical price per graft in Turkey (in reputable clinics such as Dr. Yaman’s) is between $1.3 to $4. As a result, you can expect your surgical procedure to cost several thousand dollars (inclusive of accommodation, transfers, medication, and an interpreter that speaks your language).
6000 Grafts Hair Transplant Cost in Turkey
Hair transplantation that requires 6,000 or more grafts is complex and requires the expertise of a surgeon with many years of experience. Most DHI hair transplant procedures that require 6,000 grafts are recommended for patients with severe frontal, mid-scalp, and vertex hair loss. At Dr. Resul Yaman’s clinic in Turkey, for a 6,000+ grafts hair transplant, you will need to visit the clinic two times (the second time being the day after your first visit). As for the hair transplant price of a long-lasting 6,000-graft surgery, you can expect it to cost you at least a few thousand dollars when done in one of the best hair transplant clinics in the country.

While Turkey is an affordable country to get a transplant done, it’s very important that you don’t go for the low end of the scale, as the service you will likely receive won’t be safe or satisfactory.

Cost of Hair Transplants in Turkey FAQs
What Determines the Cost of a Hair Transplant in Turkey?
Turkey hair transplant prices vary due to several reasons, including the clinic, surgeon, and technique used to extract and implant healthy hair follicles in the recipient area. However, what will make the biggest difference when it comes to price is the number of grafts you require to achieve the best DHI hair transplant results. Hair transplantation prices in Turkey start from $1.3 to $4 per graft.
What is Included in the Cost of a Hair Transplant in Turkey?
Different clinics offer their patients different hair transplant packages. As Dr. Yaman leads the best hair transplant clinic in Istanbul, we’ll take complete care of you and make your stay as easy and as comfortable as possible. Within your DHI hair transplant cost, we will include the following:
- A transfer from the airport to the hotel and back, as well as a transfer from the hotel to Dr. Yaman’s clinic and back

- Accommodation in a 3-star, 4-star, or 5-star hotel in Istanbul
- All the necessary medications before, during, and after the hair transplant operation
Since we don’t know where you are coming from, the only thing you will need to book yourself is your flights. We will take care of everything else for you.
Why Are Some Hair Transplant Clinics in Turkey Cheaper Than Others?
A long-lasting hair transplant procedure delivered by a trained, licensed, and experienced surgeon can cost you somewhere in the area of $2,500. But if you browse the internet for long enough, you’ll also come across hair transplant clinics that charge as little as $750. There are many reasons why some clinics are cheaper than others, including:
- The clinics are not Ministry of Health-approved
- Your treatment is most likely going to be done quickly, ineffectively, and unsafely. At best, the results will be unsatisfactory, and at worst, your health may suffer as a result
- Your procedure may be performed by an untrained or inexperienced surgeon without any supervision
As a general rule of thumb, we strongly advise against going for the absolute cheapest option, as you will get exactly what you pay for. With that in mind, even if you decide to undergo a DHI, an FUE hair transplant (Follicular Unit Extraction), or another procedure in a legitimate clinic in Turkey, the total cost will still be in times lower than in the west.
Is It Safe to Undergo a Hair Transplant in Turkey?
Absolutely – as long as you put your trust in the hands of an experienced hair transplant surgeon like Dr. Resul Yaman, who has over a decade of hands-on experience under his belt. Dr. Yaman’s clinic is one of the most reputable in Istanbul. A quick look at the clinic’s reviews on Google or a scroll through the hundreds of hair transplant before and after photos will give you a good idea of what you can expect. Getting a quality hair transplant doesn’t have to cost you tens of thousands of dollars. Do your due diligence and ask all the right questions. When you choose a clinic with one of the best hair transplant doctors, you can rest assured that you are in safe hands.
How Long Will My Hair Transplant Take?
Dr. Resul Yaman is capable of transplanting between 4,000 and 4,500 grafts in a single day. So, if your case requires less or a similar number of grafts to the above, the process can take from a few hours up to a full day. This is the case for the large majority of patients that come through the door. If you have severe hair loss and require more than 4,500 grafts, the doctor may call you in for a follow-up appointment the day after. That is when he will transplant the remaining number of grafts.
Dr. Resul Yaman would like you to know a few things before undergoing a hair transplantation in Turkey. That way, you will be fully prepared for what is to come and will give yourself the best chance of getting the hair restoration results you want. Hair transplantation at the Dr. Resul Yaman Hair Clinic in Istanbul is divided into three steps, including pre-operation, operation, and post-operation. And getting everything right during each of the three stages is essential in getting the best results.
Selecting the Right Clinic for Your Hair Transplant Surgery
Before you undergo hair transplant surgery, it is essential to choose the right specialist and hair transplant clinic for the job. Remember, hair transplantation is an invasive surgery that should only be performed by an experienced, licensed and trained surgeon. The failure to get your hair transplant at a renowned clinic can result not only in unsatisfactory results but also put your health at risk. When choosing a hair clinic, look at reviews on Google, before and after pictures of previous hair transplant surgeries, and do more research on the surgeon that will do your surgery. That way, determining the right clinic for your hair transplant will be much easier.
Foods and Beverages You Need to Consume Before the Operation
Before your hair transplant surgery, you need to consume foods and beverages that won’t put a burden on your digestive system. In other words, stay away from fatty and heavy meals. If your operation is scheduled for the morning, you can have a light breakfast. And if your surgery is in the afternoon, make sure to grab a light lunch too.
How to Dress and Wash Your Hair Before the Procedure
Before your hair transplant surgery, you need to wash your hair thoroughly, as that will be the last time you will do so for a couple of days. Please make sure that you don’t apply any products to your hair after your shower, such as gels, hair spray, and similar. In addition to that, make sure that you dress appropriately for your surgery. You should choose clothing that won’t make contact with your scalp after the surgery. Dr. Yaman recommends wearing a loose t-shirt or similar clothing that you can easily put on and take off after your surgery.
