As Europe grapples with the highest incidence of hair loss worldwide, Turkey has become a leading destination for hair transplantation. Şule Ölmez, founder of Istanbul’s Sule Hair Transplant Clinic, provides insights into the growing trend of choosing Turkey for these procedures, drawing from her global treatment experience.
The surge in hair loss issues in Europe is pushing individuals towards hair transplantation as a long-term solution. Clinics in Turkey, known for welcoming health tourists from around the world, have become a popular European choice. Şule Ölmez, a leading figure in the field operating her clinic in Istanbul, stated, “We offer hair transplantation and dental treatment services to thousands of patients from all over the world, especially those coming from the European countries.”
The Issue of Hair Loss in Europe
Current studies show that hair loss is a significant concern across Europe, with 8 of the 10 most affected countries being European. The Czech Republic is at the top, followed by Spain, Germany, France, and the UK. Many looking for lasting solutions turn to Turkey, renowned for its affordable and superior services.
Şule Ölmez Discusses Turkey’s Impact in Hair Transplantation
“Turkey has become a hub for hair transplantation with its superior success rates and quality services worldwide. We also contribute to this success with our high standard services that prioritise patient satisfaction.”
Achieving 99% in Patient Satisfaction
“Our clinic’s 99% satisfaction rate in hair transplantation showcases our dedication to customised treatments and high-quality care. We view our patients not as mere clients, but as family, allowing us to develop individualised treatment plans to suit their specific requirements and expectations.”
A Focus on Quality
Şule Ölmez emphasises quality over quantity, “Although we perform fewer operations, we prefer to provide a higher standard of service in each procedure. We extend our care beyond the surgery, supporting patients throughout their recovery, ensuring they feel secure and cared for.”
Hair Transplantation with a Turkish Twist
Şule Ölmez highlights the unique opportunity to combine medical treatment with tourism for international patients. “Patients who come to Turkey need to stay for 4 days to complete various procedures. Since hair transplantation process has already been completed in this process, they could use their remaining time by visiting Istanbul. So much so that this opportunity increases the attractiveness of our clinic for European citizens who visit Istanbul the most. We make the most suitable plan for our patients according to the hair transplant package they choose. For instance, in the all-inclusive hair transplant package, we arrange the airport transfer and accommodation. In order for each of our patients to leave Turkey satisfied, we accompany them from the first meeting to the completion of the recovery process. In this way, we make hair transplantation process a pleasant trip while ensuring that they return to their country happily.”
