Why Are Some Hair Transplants More Expensive?

POSTED: 17 October 2019

Have you ever wondered why some hair transplants are more expensive or why going to different countries is cheaper? Often or not, the price for a hair transplant, particularly abroad is too good to be true, and there are often mishaps that urgently need to be rectified and surgical procedures performed by unskilled surgeons. 

Having a hair transplant is a big and important procedure, so it’s critical that you have the treatment in the UK and by a reputable surgeon. Crown Clinic’s Dr Shahmalak is a renowned and recognised hair transplantation surgeon in both the NHS and the private medical sector, with a wealth of experience. His skillset not only transforms into excellent results, but Dr Shahmalak is also a patient-friendly medical professional and understands the stresses that some people go through with hair loss.

 

Why It’s Important to Avoid a Cheap Hair Transplant 

 

The realisation that you’re losing your hair can be a stressful moment for anybody that it affects. It can be a reminder that we’re ageing and that our looks are changing, which can become an anxious time. For those suffering from hair loss, considering a hair transplant is a logical option. 

It can be overwhelming to find the best hair loss restoration option to suit you, particularly when there are various avenues to go down and false or misleading information that can be found on the internet. There are also countless new hair transplant clinics, many of which have less than reputable practices. However, the promise of a fast and cheap procedure is too tempting for some people to resist, particularly when having a hair transplant becomes a holiday package deal, which, unfortunately, can leave detrimental results. 

Hair restoration is a medical procedure that requires a high level of expertise. Patients require medical monitoring and expert diagnostic knowledge to ensure they are safe throughout their procedure. In the case of many hair transplants, thousands of skin incisions are made, so understanding anaesthetic is essential. 

Naturally, price is a factor in every purchase we make, but when it comes to our bodies and health, it can be disastrous to go for a cheap option. A hair transplant will be with you every day, for the rest of your life – having it done correctly is worth every penny. Having an unskilled surgeon perform the procedure can cost you more, in the long run, to rectify the mistakes, and therefore, becoming a much more stressful time. Unfortunately, this is something we see each day. 

In the immediate months after the operation, new hair may seem slow to appear. However, given time, if planted correctly, the grafts will begin to show, and your newly restored hair will look natural, giving you that extra boost of confidence.

 

Why Hair Are Hair Transplants in Turkey Dangerous?

 

Hair transplant in Turkey has become a desirable place to undergo the procedure on a budget while combining it with a holiday. The package seems too good to miss out on, right. You’ll have the warm, sunny weather, a trip to a foreign county, sight-seeing, hotel, and you’ll come back a new person. Thanks to lenient laws and rampant competition, the costs are low, and the procedures are quick. However, it is too good to be true, and the risks involved are paramount. 

Firstly, following your procedure, you will have to rest-up to give your body time to recover, so enjoying the Turkish climate and tourist attractions is off the itinerary list. Following a hair transplant procedure, you will want to be in the comfort of your home, particularly for sleeping, as you will have to rest your head in a specific position. So, staying in a hotel room or flying back to the UK isn’t appealing. 

Many Turkish clinics offer packages that include travel, accommodation, and surgery. Worryingly, the procedures are often performed by unqualified individuals, which can result in complications. If something did go wrong, not all medical insurances would cover the cost either. 

Some medical procedures are expensive. However, the cost is necessary to ensure patients health is in the best possible hands. British clinics are held to strict laws and risk losing their licenses and certifications abruptly if they fail to follow proper procedures before and after surgery. So, we strongly advise weighing up the long-term impact a cheap hair transplant can have compared to spending a bit more, but with the reassurance that you’re having this procedure with skilled, experienced, and licensed surgeons. 

Crown Clinic is a reputable hair transplant clinic in the UK, with Dr Shahmalak being one of the most renowned and respected surgeons in the country. So, if you’re considering a hair transplant and require more information, get in touch with the Crown Clinic team today or book a consultation with Dr Shahmalak. The consultation will cover the procedure, give the opportunity to meet Dr Shahmalak, who will perform the hair transplant and answer any questions.
