During the Corona virus epidemic, the time spent at home also caused people to spend more time with the mirror. This process has also increased the demand for a new hair transplant aesthetics in Turkey despite the pandemic.

The corona virus epidemic has also affected hair transplant, which has an important place in health tourism in Turkey. Citizens who spent more time in front of the mirror by staying at home during the pandemic period, along with the new normal, made their way to hospitals for hair transplant and aesthetic surgeries. Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery Specialist Surgeon Doctor and Turkey Medicals Hair Transplant Coordinator also emphasized that the demands have changed in this process.

Specialist Surgeon Dr. “The younger section is having an operation for the purpose of beautification. He said he wants to fix the problem areas that he thinks are defective in himself.” Turkey Medicals Hair Transplant Coordinator, “First reason why hair transplantation is preferred in our country is that it is done well. It is being done at more affordable prices than USA, UK, Ireland, Canada, Australia, France, Italy and Germany,” he said.

The fact that people stayed at home caused them to take care of themselves

Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery Specialist Surgeon Dr said that plastic surgeons also experienced a lot of the anxiety that everyone experienced when the pandemic started.

Surgeon Dr, who stated that patients who insisted on having surgery in Istanbul and Antalya hotspots during the pandemic, said that people staying at home increased their interest in themselves. That is why there was an increase in aesthetics, tummy tuck, liposuction and male breast aesthetics, which may be especially related to weight. The beginning of the summer season also contributed a lot to this, because in summer, as you know, we study clothes and have difficulty storing the pounds we want to store. It is a season when a little more camouflage is problematic, so there was an increase in tummy tuck and liposuction at the beginning of summer, he said.

There is also an increase in reconstructive cases

Surgeon Doctor in Istanbul, stated that his concerns have increased with the increase in the number of cases, and there is an increase in cases that we call reconstructive than aesthetic at the moment. In particular, there are a number of wounds that have been delayed, holidays have been made, but still have not healed, especially skin cancer cases so far. He said there’s been an increase in patients coming in just in case we take this to the doctor and show them.

It is aimed at improving the quality of life

Noting that those who are at a younger age prefer surgery for the purpose of beautification, Dr continued his words as follows:

People at a young age want to correct problem areas that they think are defective in themselves. When you get a little older, aesthetics becomes the second goal now. It is aimed at improving the quality of life a little more. Back pain, especially if the patient’s breasts are large in breast surgery, can cause shoulder pain. If there is a lot of flabbiness in the abdomen, rashes may occur. The patient is having an operation in order to leave the aesthetics aside and improve the quality of life and get rid of these pains. Scoop ear patients also have a very bad effect on their hair shape if they don’t correct their ears. Again, it limits the patient’s life, and therefore changing the shape of the ear gives the patient some freedom.

The age scale is very wide in these operations, and if the patient’s general condition is good from the age of 18, surgery can be performed until the age of 70-80. The main thing is both spiritual and physical health. It is necessary to distinguish well that medical patients who request it are spiritually appropriate patients.

The demand for hair transplant varies according to countries

Turkey Medicals Hair Transplant Coordinator, who emphasized that the arrival of bans abroad and the quarantine of patients leaving Turkey also affect hair transplant, Demands vary depending on the countries. If we have guests here and the patients we send to their countries have quarantine processes in their countries, the patient has trouble coming here and says that I don’t want to go into quarantine when I return to my country. He said that because our health system is good compared to other countries, we can provide patient safety with the measures we take here.

The reason it is very preferred is because it is done well

Emphasizing that patients from abroad do not want to risk themselves because they do not know Turkey well, Istanbul Plastic Aesthetic Specialist Surgeon Dr said that Europe’s general and the UK were meeting Turkey’s hair transplantation requests. With the pandemic, European countries have started not to prefer Turkey too much. Regardless of transplant, the first reason why hair transplantation is preferred in our country is that it is done well. It is made at more affordable prices than abroad, and citizens who come to our country can also have a vacation here at the same time. He said that we are able to conduct more rigorous studies than centers in other countries.

Pay attention to the choice of center

Turkey Medicals, who also gave advice to those who wanted to get a hair transplant, concluded his words as follows:

Those who want to have a hair transplant should pay attention to the fact that the places where they will have a hair transplant are a hospital or a clinic that can perform surgical procedures, and the procedure is performed under the supervision of the best hair doctors in Turkey.

Transplantation is a sensitive and serious process, but there are many hair centers on the floors of residences and apartments in Turkey, that’s why the use of a branded hospital institution is very so most important to consider where to start.
