The prevalence of hair loss in Europe, more than any other region globally, is leading its citizens to Turkey for hair transplantation solutions. Şule Ölmez, who founded Sule Hair Transplant Clinic in Istanbul, discusses the factors contributing to Turkey’s acclaim in this arena, based on her extensive experience serving an international clientele.
Europe’s escalating hair loss problem is compelling many to opt for hair transplantation as a definitive answer. Turkish hair transplantation clinics, annually attracting thousands of international health tourists, stand as a favoured destination for Europeans. Şule Ölmez, at the helm of her clinic in Istanbul, noted, “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 Challenge of Hair Loss in Europe
Studies are increasingly showing that hair loss is a critical concern in Europe, with eight of the top ten most affected countries being European. The Czech Republic is at the top of this list, with Spain, Germany, France, and the UK following. Many individuals seeking a permanent solution turn to Turkey, known for its cost-effectiveness and top-tier services.
On Turkey’s role in hair transplantation, Şule Ölmez says, “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.”
Exceptional Patient Satisfaction Levels
“Our clinic boasts a 99% satisfaction rate in hair transplantation, a clear indicator of our bespoke treatment approaches and high-quality care. We consider our patients as part of our extended family, not just clients. This philosophy helps us craft customised treatment plans that align with each patient’s specific needs and expectations.”
Focus on Quality Service
Emphasising the importance of service quality, Şule Ölmez stated, “Although we perform fewer operations, we prefer to provide a higher standard of service in each procedure. Our commitment to our patients continues throughout the operation and into the recovery phase, ensuring they feel secure and cared for.”
Hair Transplantation and Tourism
Şule Ölmez highlights the unique combination of medical and leisure travel for foreign 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.”
