With more than 25 years of experience and a 98% growth rate, Dr. Serkan Aygin guarantees the highest quality.
Over the last several decades, Turkey has established itself as a leading destination for hair-loss treatments for men and women struggling with thin hair from all over the world. Aside from the high quality of care at hair transplant clinics in Turkey, the cost of a hair transplant in Turkey is dramatically lower than in many European countries.
Dr Serkan Aygin
Dr Serkan Aygin has long been a pioneer in the field of hair transplantation and hair-loss therapy, actively assisting patients with hair restoration since 1996. Dr Aygin was among the very first doctors in Turkey to perform hair transplants and has continued to aid in the field’s development ever since.
After graduating from the Istanbul University School of Medicine (Çapa), with a Masters in both Clinical Pharmacology and Dermatology, Dr Aygin worked as a specialist in outpatient clinics in Turkey for dermatology and hair disorders and completed his residency training program at Vakif Gureba Hospital in Istanbul.
Dr Aygin’s continued advances in the fields of hair loss and hair restoration have played a key role in establishing Turkey’s reputation as a world-leading destination for high-quality hair-loss treatments. He is among the first doctors in the country to practice both Sapphire FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) and DHI (Direct Hair Implantation) techniques.
In 2019 Dr Serkan Aygin was awarded the European Award in Medicine in the field of Hair Transplant Surgery at the first-ever European Awards in Medicine ceremony in Paris, France.
The Hair Transplantation Procedure
If possible, we highly recommend our patients attend a preliminary consultation in our clinic in Istanbul. However, for patients travelling from abroad, we offer remote consultation utilising photos of your hair and loss pattern to estimate the number of follicles that are needed and available for transplant. We will also provide patients with a quote that includes all expenses related to various treatments and therapy options for each case.
Upon arrival in Istanbul, patients will have a preliminary consultation in our clinic to more accurately assess the quality and density of existing hair, what degree of coverage is desired and achievable, as well as the number of grafts required.
Once a final treatment plan has been agreed upon the procedure can begin. The procedure lasts only 6-7 hours, during which anyone travelling with the patient may wait in our lobby and cafe areas, and after which patients can return to their hotel. Our facilities are both JCI and TUV certified to ensure adherence to the strictest international standards for cleanliness and safety.
Before beginning the procedure, the areas where the hair follicles will be extracted from and the transplant site will be sterilised and the patient will be lightly sedated, allowing for an entirely stress- and pain-free procedure. Sedation is completely safe and administered by our licensed anaesthesiologists, however, it is completely optional. Even without sedation, a local anaesthetic is offered and the procedure involves minimal discomfort.
This process involves extracting hair follicles from the back and/or sides of the head – as well as the beard area in special cases – via a micro motor. Harvested grafts are stored either individually or in small groups in a special solution to ensure their health is maintained throughout the procedure.
At this point, individual incisions will be made following the patient’s natural hairline, desired coverage, and the number of grafts required. All incisions are created at an angle of 40° – 45° and in alignment with the natural direction of hair growth.
The most important step of the procedure; we begin by implanting the single extracted hair follicles along the desired hairline to ensure a more natural-looking final result. Once this is done, the groups of hair follicles are grafted into the mid-scalp region to create thick, full coverage.
Once all of the grafts have been implanted the donor area is cleaned and bandaged and the patient is free to go back to their hotel and get some rest. The next day a new dressing will be applied at our clinic and the patient will receive follow-up therapy and instructions for further care.
Costs Of Hair Transplants In Turkey
According to the NHS, the cost of a hair transplant in the UK can reach as high as £30,000. While each patient’s specific case is always unique, medical costs in Turkey are significantly lower than in the UK, US, or other European nations. The final hair transplant turkey costs are ultimately dependent on many factors such as the type of procedure desired.
Whatever a patient’s hair-restoration needs, all of our packages are full-service. You only need to arrange your flight to and from Istanbul, and we’ll take care of the rest.

The different treatments of a hair transplant
Different parts of the body can be affected by hair loss. Not only on the head, but also on the eyebrows or the beard.
Therefore, the Dr. Serkan Aygin Clinic offers hair transplantation in Turkey also for eyebrows and the beard.
Beard hair transplant
For the beard hair transplantation, hair is taken from the back of the head, which is then implemented in the recipient area using the DHI technique. This treatment is accompanied by no scars.
If a hair transplant takes place in Turkey in the area of the eyebrows, hair is also taken from the back of the head, which is implanted in the recipient area. The final result is visible already after 6-8 months.
Hair transplantation on the head area is probably the best known and most frequently performed. For this purpose, hair is taken from the donor area of the head and transplanted into the desired area. Various forms of treatment can be applied here.

Our methods of hair transplantation
Sapphire FUE hair transplant
Dr Aygin has been a trailblazer in the FUE technique with his use of sapphire blades to perform the procedure. The benefits of sapphire blades for hair transplants are numerous.
Firstly, the incisions created during hair implantation are significantly smaller, as sapphire blades are far smoother and sharper than traditional steel ones. This allows for a more precise placement of transplanted hair follicles. Secondly, sapphire blades cause noticeably less damage to the surrounding tissue, providing much faster and smoother healing and minimising the risk of scarring.
DHI hair transplant
DHI (Direct Hair Implantation) is a modified version of the FUE technique. Whereas the FUE technique requires the surgeon to manually create incisions into the scalp before implantation of the hair follicle, DHI uses a specialised tool that injects the follicle directly into the scalp.
The use of DHI allows for the hair follicles to be placed at specific angles to match the rest of the hair, allowing for a more natural-looking final result. The DHI procedure makes use of custom Choi Implanter Pens which are designed as single-use tools for each patient.
Painless with Soft Sapphire FUE Hair Transplantation
For some time now, the Dr. Serkan Aygin Clinic has been using the Sapphire FUE method for hair transplantation in order to achieve the best possible results for its patients. Due to the fantastic progress of today’s medicine, you have the opportunity to enjoy the benefits of SOFT anaesthesia in hair transplantations.
