To know the latest technology in hair transplantation and its latest developments, we recommend that you read this article.
The hair transplant sector in Turkey attracts medical practitioners in this field from all over the world, where this type of treatment is at the top of the list in the field of medical tourism.
Foreigners come to Turkey from different countries for hair transplantation due to the inexpensive cost, the modern technology used and the tourism opportunity that it offers them.
Statistics conducted in 2013 show that the number of visitors to Turkey for medical tourism is over 360 thousand visitors.
In addition to the 480,000 operations carried out in health centers on tourists who came to Turkey with a view to treatment, Turkey’s income from this sector will be $ 2.5 billion in 2013.
Most of the visitors to Turkey with the aim of medical tourism were 58,000 Germans, according to the German newspaper Der Spiegel in an article devoted to medical tourism in Turkey, which showed that the hair transplant sector increased by 390 percent in Turkey during the past five years.
The newspaper also indicated that Turkey aims to increase this sector three times in the next three years.
Turkey ranks ninth in terms of the number of plastic surgeons, who number 1,200.
However, the presence of some centers that work in this field without a legal license prevents them from receiving professional treatment sometimes.
