      @@jaimerodriguez1550You see the same affordable prices in the EU. The problem in the US is that there's not a higher power (i.e. the government) negotiating the prices down. That's why big pharma in the US can raise the prices however they see fit forming oligopolies (they only call it a price cartel after they've been sentenced by a court, but not with the corrupt US justice system). Just look at insulin: 90 % of all insulin comes from 3 companies (Eli Lilly, Sanofi, and Novo Nordisk) and insulin prices have gone up 10 times from 96 to 2016, even though the patents have long expired. Additionally, the entire health care industry is run by the insurance companies, which is why something can cost 6000 USD to someone without insurance and 100 USD to someone with one. The entire system is corrupted through and through.

He’s satisfied with his results and looks 20 years younger. The health insurance and care in the US is a scam. I know family members who went to Turkey and Mexico to do oral care for a dirt price and all worked out. Listen, if you got the money, know a connect, do it. These healthcare folks here in the US who talk bad about the idea is preventing you from making a change because they’re gonna “lose” money on their end and it’s not good for business.

The results are 10/10. Meanwhile my friend opted to stay in the US and do his there - he spent more than 5 times as much as me and now needs corrective surgery. He was very demoralized at the shoddy results and scarring. The technology and level of experience pales in comparison to the cosmetic industry in Turkey especially when it comes to hair transplantation. I went from a Norwood VI to now having a full head of voluminous hair thanks to Dr. Çinik. Perfect hairline. Results are so good, it’s Impossible to recognize that I had one. Forever grateful.

      @@Youve_GotABeard Thank you sir. I will first see what some local dr in America could do--my wild guess is I wouldn't need but 1000-2000 transplants to cover the two thinning sides of my forehead; the forehead does have a thick central strip and the sides are really really thick hair, which I use to comb-over. I can live with the greatly thinned out crowd. Thanks again.

      @@meengla just to clarify… what you mean when you speak of how many transplants is “grafts”. For instance, I had 3,900 grafts the first transplant and around 3,000 the second one. I really really recommend going to Istanbul for the transplant. I have little faith in American hair doctors. They always seem to want to do FUT technique - but that sucks. They will tell you it is recommended for some individuals on a case by case basis over the FUE method. If you have a strong donor area (lots of density on the sides and back of the head), you should definitely get FUE - NOT FUT (which leaves scarring). The precision extraction of the hair follicles used in the FUE method is virtually a non issue when it comes to scarring. I can’t recommend Istanbul hair clinics enough. Don’t be afraid or reluctant because it is far away or a foreign country. Do your research and choose one. They are all very skilled, high quality and super professional. If you want to know the clinic I went to I can also share that. Best luck 🍀

    I am from Turkey, I live in Turkey, I have always criticized our government that turned the country into a religious dictatorship, I also acknowledge that we have a lot of problems in a lot of places. Having said all of that, No American doctor should criticize the health care in my country. I know, our health care may also have problems, but it cannot possibly be as nearly bad as what you have in the US. You people have to consider ''Should I risk dying or should I call an ambulance?'', that's something happens only in the US. My advice to people who consider coming here for health related issues, do your due diligence and get as much information about the doctor as you can, then you should be OK, I am pretty sure, 90% of the time a better doctor will be taking care of you here than what you could get in the US, unless you are super rich.

    FUT May mean you can’t have very short hair in the back that may reveal the grafting harvesting area and the scar. I’ve seen some very bad and ugly scars from FUT (just people on the street or at the gym).
    I personally would opt to more advanced FUE harvesting method, preferably with the robot Artas. For more natural look and less scarring (even though scarring can be there as well.. )

Those countries charge a fraction and the results are usually stellar! But be patient in following their post-surgical treatments and time for it to grow for the optimum results. Turkey’s clinics are quite exemplary, top notch, and worth the plane ride ticket besides those clinics treating you like a king with accommodations and thorough treatment.

    Lets look at dental tourism for example, and just realize that an average Bulgarian, Hungarian, Mexican, Russian, or Colombian (who makes $700-1000 a month) has WAY better teeth than an average American. It's not rocket science or something outside of reach. US is just so insular, so it's hard to realize there is a world beyond. Sure, many things US does way better, but not medical care (in 99% of routine issues).
    I had my teeth (a crown) messed up by a respectable dentist in Chicago, whom I paid $8000 out of pocket, ended up loosing a tooth and needing an implant, which I got in Mexico City at a state of the art dental office with a US educated dentist, Swiss materials and German equipment for under $2000.
    Same, I imagine for hair transplants. Let your politicians continue calling you a commie bastard for wanting affordable healthcare for yourself and your kids, as these politicians pocket legalized bribes from the insurance industry.
