What Factors Affect the Cost of Hair Restoration Procedures?

When you’re considering a hair transplant, the total cost (and your personal budget) is going to be something worth thinking about before you book any consultations or choose a provider. After all, prices vary around the globe, so something that might not be affordable in the US or Europe might be entirely affordable elsewhere.

In this blog, we’re going to take a quick look at some of the factors that are likely to influence the cost of your hair restoration process, from your gender and severity of your hair loss, to the location and surgeon you end up choosing. Let’s take a look!

How much does a hair transplant cost on average?

A hair transplant can cost anywhere between $1000 and $30,000, but the average price of a hair transplant in Turkey is $2676 – or ₺50,000 in Turkish lira.

Hair transplant cost: contributing factors

So, what influences the final cost of your hair transplant? Here are some of the main factors to take into consideration:


Where you choose to have your hair transplant surgery is going to be one of the most influential factors when it comes to the overall cost. While you might think that going abroad is going to cost more money (considering the added expense of flights, accommodation, and more), many Turkish hair clinics actually offer all-inclusive package deals that includes almost everything just mentioned (excluding flights).

Number of hair grafts needed

The severity of your hair loss is also going to play a role in calculating the final cost of your procedure; this is because many hair transplant clinics will charge you on a pay-per-graft basis. (A graft is essentially a single follicle of hair and the essence of your hair transplant, so the more grafts you need to achieve your desired result, the higher the cost is going to be.)

In general, clinics in Turkey will charge anywhere between $0.8 and $1.2 per graft, although others will offer a more cost-effective pricing by bundling everything together in a package deal.

Type of transplant

The type of hair transplant you choose to have can also affect how much it will cost; for example, FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) is considered the more expensive option, but also gives you more natural looking results. On the other hand, an FUT procedure (Follicular Unit Transplantation) is considered the more affordable transplant, so if you’re on a tighter budget this might be something to consider.

Your chosen clinic

The expertise and skills of the surgeons in your chosen clinic will also help to determine the cost of your hair restoration procedure. If you opt for a hospital or clinic that has been approved by the Ministry of Health, this is likely going to mean paying slightly more for an enhanced experience. Similarly, clinics whose equipment, tools and machinery have been approved by the Ministry of Health will charge higher rates.

While you might want to cut corners where possible, the experience and skill of your chosen surgeon is not the best place to try and budget. A botched hair transplant procedure can be painful on a number of different levels (both physically, financially and mentally!) so it’s always best to opt for clinicians and surgeons with the right qualifications and a track-record of successful procedures.


Finally, another factor to take into consideration is your gender: as women tend to have longer, thicker hair on average, the cost of a hair transplant for a female is going to be significantly higher.

Why is a hair transplant in Turkey cheaper?

If you’ve ever wondered why the hair transplant cost in Turkey is much lower than those in other countries, it’s mostly due to Turkey’s national currency, the lira. The lira benefits from a favourable exchange rate between the dollar, sterling, and the euro, meaning that money in Turkey goes further for less. This means that you can obtain a comprehensive hair transplant package deal in the country (including hotel accommodation, a language interpreter, transport and medication costs) all for a much lower price.

How many grafts are included in a hair transplant package Turkey?

Most hair restoration clinics will offer a comprehensive package deal that covers around 4,500 hair grafts, although you may end up having to pay more depending on your particular circumstances, and the current severity of your hair loss.
