The appearance of bald patches or significant baldness is not a sentence now! Modern methods of hair transplantation allow you to return your hair to its former luxurious look. At the same time, it will look so natural that others will not even guess about the procedure.
The choice of method (FUE or DHI) usually depends on the degree of baldness. The patient is transplanted with their own hair follicles, after transplantation there are no noticeable scars or scars.
The procedure takes place in one stage: hair follicles are removed from the back of the head and immediately transplanted into the area of baldness.
Hello. Finally, my old dream came true – to have a hair transplant in the wonderful Cosmedica clinic.
Everything went great! I am very glad. Service is top notch. Assistance from the beginning and organization of the trip to the escort back.
The hotel is super, free shuttle too. There is a team of professionals who know their business.
I recommend this clinic and Dr. Akar to everyone!!!
First of all, I want to thank my Dr. Ilhan and his team. After 3 years of searching, when I met Ilhan, whose clinic I went to, I did not even hesitate after the first examination and decided to have a hair transplant. He and his team are masters of their craft. He is personally involved in the operation, his interest and leadership subsequently motivate people and play an important role in achieving successful results.
I think that for those who are considering a hair transplant, it will be enough to meet with Ilhan. Thanks again, Dr. Ilhan.
It was worth it! I felt comfortable throughout the whole process!
I am now post-operative period, the 3rd day.
Dr. Akar and staff are professional and courteous. Being an American in a foreign country, there were fears, all this is new to me. But all my fears were dispelled when I came to Cosmedica.
Upon arrival in the city, I received a WhatsApp message from the clinic staff, and I was picked up and taken to the clinic, provided with a hotel. Doctors explain everything, and you do not worry, because you are always aware of what is happening.
I am very pleased that I chose Cosmedica and Dr. Akar. And the result of a hair transplant, of course. 🙂
Since the day I decided to have a hair transplant, I have spent a lot of time looking for information about clinics and doctors. I went to Ilhan Serdaroglu’s clinic, considering that he is a plastic surgeon. There are also many good reviews about it on the Internet, which is encouraging. I came for an interview and the very sight of the doctor, his attitude, convinced me of the correctness of the decision to do a transplant in his clinic. The hair transplant took place on 02/19/2020 and there were no problems during the transplant. On the second day everything was fine. I would like to thank my Dr. Ilkhan Serdaroglu and his team. And I will recommend it to anyone considering hair transplant.
Despite the fact that the recovery after the operation is not easy, I have no doubt that I made the right decision.
I am writing a review 23 days after the operation (FUE hair transplant).
Dr. Ilker is super professional as is his team. I had the procedure 3 weeks ago, it’s hard to recover, but still I don’t regret choosing Dr. Ilker. In addition, I would like to mention the entire team of Dr. Apaydin, very kind people, they always supported and explained everything. With such support, you feel that you are in a safe place and in the BEST hands. Dr. Ilker did an amazing hairline for me and I can’t wait to see the full results and can’t wait a few more months. I recommend Dr. Ilker Apaydin to anyone who wants to do a hair transplant.
Hello, my name is Shlomi and I would like to write about Dr. Ilker APAIDIN. This doctor gave me a hair transplant 2 years ago and since then I am very happy with the result. I don’t stop getting compliments and I think it’s important to check with the doctor you’re going to before running for a transplant. Ilker is a champion and professional and knows exactly how to conduct the process at the highest level. I only recommend it!
A year ago, I made the decision to have a hair transplant. I had a fairly large area of baldness, and the donor area was weak, I was determined to do the transplant only with the doctor who exactly met my expectations. After talking with many doctors from all over the world, I decided to go to Dr. Ilker Apaydin in Istanbul (I do not live there). From the first moment I entered the clinic in Istanbul, the staff and the doctor were very kind. Dr. Ilker Apaydin explained the procedure step by step. Throughout the entire operation, I felt in good hands. After the operation, I received clear instructions and Dr. Ilker’s personal phone number for any questions. The process exceeded all my expectations.
A year after the first hair transplant, I was very pleased with the results.
Since the first transplant was focused on the anterior region, I decided to return to Dr. Ilker’s clinic and have another hair transplant in the crown region. After a successful first hair transplant, I had no doubt that I would go to Dr. Ilker Apaydin again.
To be continued…
I am very pleased with how the whole procedure went.
Dr. Ilker and his team are amazing! They made my stay in Istanbul and the operation like a walk in the park!
I did not feel any pain, received all the recommendations for medications, treatment after surgery and advice for the next year!
Can’t wait to see my results!
Special thanks to the doctor’s assistant Leyla, who helped me with everything, immediately answered all my questions, whether it was surgery, postoperative period or related to Istanbul. She is wonderful!
Sharing the final results after 11 months. It is very convenient to make a hair transplant in the Cosmedica clinic in terms of service! Three hours on the plane and I’m in Istanbul. By the way, I was not there, I liked the city very much. As they say, a nice bonus.
What did you like. Competent and timely support in Russian. The hotel is comfortable. The hair transplant itself is virtually painless, with the exception of local anesthesia. During the procedure, I even dozed off, there was no discomfort.
The cost of transplantation does not depend on the number of grafts (upper limit 5000). According to the photos that he sent before the operation, they said 2500 grafts were needed, after examining Dr. Akar, they prescribed 3800, and 4000 were transplanted during the operation itself.
The guys are really focused on the result.
The problem of hair loss began to bother me at the age of 20. I learned about hair transplant in Istanbul on the forum. Many clinics offer this service. I chose a clinic for a long time, in the end I ended up on Cosmedica’s Instagram. They impressed me with a huge number of before and after examples. I decided to turn to Dr. Levent Akar.
Impressions from the clinic are only positive: Doctors, staff, service – all at the highest level. All issues that arose were resolved at any time of the day or night.
A few details about my case: About 5 thousand grafts were transplanted to me, the procedure was divided into 2 days. Everything went smoothly, I didn’t even need painkillers)
I thought about hair transplantation for a long time, but this year I decided to do it. Since Turkey has the best specialists, there were no problems choosing a country, but I could not decide in which clinic to do it.
I watched a lot of YouTube videos and immediately noticed the Сosmedica clinic.
Then I tried to consult via e-mail, it was very pleasant that they quickly answered all my questions. As soon as I arrived in Turkey, I was immediately warmly welcomed, taken care of, the hotel was 10 points.
The staff at the clinic is just super, they treat you like family, I never thought that there are such nice and caring people in Turkey.
Satisfied with the result. I advise Cosmedica clinic to everyone, you will definitely not regret it.
Many thanks to all the staff, and especially to Dr. Akar.
I went to Dr. Ilkhan Serdaroglu on the recommendation of my friend. I did a hair transplant, fears are in vain, it does not hurt at all. The calmness of the doctor calms. I think if you are thinking about a hair transplant, don’t even wait a day, go to Dr. Ilhan right away, you won’t regret it. Many thanks to the friendly doctor and his team.
The doctor and his team were very responsive and understanding, provided a very warm welcome. During hair transplantation, about 4000 grafts were transplanted. There was almost no pain either during the hair transplant operation or after. Recommended.
My Hair transplantation DHI
I would like to start with the fact that I had a hair transplantation. By the DHI method. Everything was on a hight level from the begging. First of all, I had a call with a doctor, who told me everything what I need about surgery and answered for all of my questions. Than, I was met by a personal driver from the airport, settled in a hotel. The hotel included breakfast and 3 nights (as I checked usually in another clinics it includes only 2 nights). Also, I had a translator (personal manager) attached to me. Since the operation lasted 6 hours, I was fed. After that, they took me by taxi to the hotel (although it is 2 minutes away). They gave me a special pillow, hat, shampoo, pillows and instructions. The next day, a doctor washed my hair and checked my head. After being discharged, I was taken to the airport. I liked everything, I put 10 out of 5. Now I am waiting for the result of the transplant (at least 6-8 months). I hope that I will also be pleasantly surprised! I can safely recommend this clinic and doctor Oya Sisman!

The cost of hair transplantation in Turkey is on average 2 times lower than in the CIS countries, for doctors with a similar level of qualification with a significantly higher quality of Turkish service.
In Turkey, clinics replace equipment with new equipment on average every 5 years. Therefore, Turkey is one of the countries with a high level of medical equipment in the world.
Since Turkey is the capital of plastic surgery in the world, patients from all over the world come there.
Thanks to this, plastic surgeons have gained tremendous experience and a strong reputation around the world.
Turkey is a popular tourist destination. Therefore, patients can combine pleasant experiences from learning a new country and excellent transformations.
Now, low-traumatic techniques are mainly used:
FUE method. Used if the patient has a significant area of baldness. With the help of special instruments, thin incisions (no more than 5 mm) are made in the occipital part of the head, grafts are removed from them – groups of 1-4 hair follicles. In the area of baldness, micro-holes with a diameter of grafts are formed, where they are placed.
DHI method. With a small area of baldness, it is possible to transplant hair follicles without skin incisions, using needle punctures with a diameter of no more than 1 mm. Transplantation is performed on one hair follicle. This is a more painstaking option than the previous one, but the doctor achieves the most natural result.
The transplanted hair will fall out a month after the procedure – this is a normal process, after which the transplanted hair follicles are activated and the hairs grow back. Every month, the hair is given density by about 10%. You can see the final result in about 10 months.
Hair follicles are taken from the back of the head, where the hair usually grows thickest. There are no bald patches left in the area where the hairs are taken from. Gradually, the density of the hair of the back of the head is restored and visible consequences remain.
The price depends on the amount of baldness and the chosen method of transplantation. You can focus on the cost of 1200 euros and above. In Turkey, clinics operate on an all-inclusive basis. This means that the price includes not only the price of the transplant itself, but also hotel accommodation, transfer, translator, hair care products, etc.
