Europe, confronting an escalating hair loss problem, is increasingly eyeing Turkey for hair transplantation options. Şule Ölmez, at the forefront of Istanbul’s Sule Hair Transplant Clinic, shares her insights on Turkey’s ascent as a leader in this medical practice, based on her broad experience with international patients.
The pressing issue of hair loss in Europe is steering many towards hair transplantation. Clinics in Turkey, known for attracting global health tourists, are now a preferred choice for Europeans. Şule Ölmez, a distinguished entrepreneur and head of her Istanbul clinic, commented, “We offer hair transplantation and dental treatment services to thousands of patients from all over the world, especially those coming from the European countries.”
Europe’s Hair Loss Epidemic
Research indicates that hair loss is a significant problem across Europe, with eight of the ten most affected countries being European. The Czech Republic, Spain, Germany, France, and the UK are most afflicted. Turkey has emerged as a top destination for those seeking lasting solutions, noted for its affordability and exceptional services.
Şule Ölmez Reflects on Turkey’s Role 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.”
High Patient Satisfaction Rates
“Our clinic enjoys a 99% satisfaction rate in hair transplantation, a clear reflection of our dedication to bespoke treatments and quality care. We treat our patients as members of our family, enabling us to design specific treatment plans that cater to their individual needs and goals.”
Prioritising Quality Services
Şule Ölmez emphasises the clinic’s focus on quality, “Although we perform fewer operations, we prefer to provide a higher standard of service in each procedure. We continue to support our patients beyond the operation, through their recovery phase, ensuring their ongoing comfort and security.”
Hair Transplantation Combined with Turkish Hospitality
Şule Ölmez discusses the advantage of integrating medical procedures 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.”
