Hair transplantation in Turkey is mostly carried out in two big cities of Turkey, Antalya and Istanbul. Both cities perform the hair restoration operations pretty well but Antalya has some distinctive advantages over Istanbul when it comes to hair transplantation.
First of all, Istanbul is the biggest city in Turkey and suffers from overcrowd, even the transfer times between your clinic in Istanbul and your accommodation may be a great challenge because of the traffic issue in Istanbul. It has a total population of 15.5 million people and this causes extremely long traffic jams which won’t move sometimes for hours.
On the contrary, Antalya has a population of 2.5 million people and there are no problems such as traffic jams. You can go anywhere you like as fast as possible, which will minimize the stress that can otherwise badly affect your hair transplant operation.
Another advantage of Antalya is again related to transportation, the Antalya Airport. It works smoothly in a flow that can easily be used and you will receive free airport pickups along with free accommodation for affordable prices if you consider Medgol’s exclusive packages shown at the bottom of this page.
Istanbul, nonetheless, has one of the biggest and most crowded airports is Europe and can be highly chaotic from time to time. The organization problem frequently occurs again due to the overcrowd of people from all around the world.
Also, Antalya has a hot, summer climate and even during the winters, weather is calm and mild. You will enjoy the beautiful beaches in Antalya during your operation period along with natural beauties such as green forests where you can go hiking or camping.
In Istanbul, on the other hand, temperatures go as cold as -10°C. So, it is wise to state that Antalya is much more preferable for someone whose hairs and scalp are vulnerable to harsh weather conditions.
Hair transplant in Turkey is more reasonable to receive in Antalya because everything, from souvenirs to restaurants, everything is much more affordable compared there to Istanbul. You can say that an average daily cost is half of it would cost in Istanbul.
Another reason for choosing Antalya is the clear and clean air thanks to its massive woodlands and pine forests. You will feel a sentiment of rebirth after breathing during your hair transplant in Antalya. This is both because of the forests and the absence of heavy industry in Antalya as a tourism city unlike Istanbul’s huge industry.
Istanbul is definitely a heaven worth seeing and it is one of the rarest riches of Turkey but for a medical tourist, it can become a hell in the long traffic jams trying to reach to the clinic in Istanbul.
