Are your veneers in need of some whitening? Do you have some crowns that need fixing but don't want to pay the UK's extortionate prices? Fancy some Botox for those wrinkles? Or wondered about a hair transplant, but considered it to be outside of your budget?
Well, did you know Turkey has cornered the health tourism market? They are not just excelling in cosmetic surgery. The Turkish health tourism industry is so advanced that it offers standard health surgeries and dental treatment.
On An NHS Waiting List?
You will get far better treatment akin to private healthcare in a Turkish hospital for all kinds of treatment, including hip replacements, cataract operations, oncology treatment, and heart surgery. It's estimated that the 4.4 million people on an NHS waiting list will jump to 10 million following the pandemic. That can only mean longer waiting times, with most health issues worsening over time.
As the NHS waiting lists get longer, the answer for nagging pain, discomfort and health issues as you wait for your turn in the UK, is to hop on a plane and have skilled doctors take care of you in state-of-the-art hospitals.
A Billion Dollar Industry
Turkey's health tourism industry is a billion-dollar industry. People travel there to get excellent treatment at prices they simply cannot afford, can't get without long waits, or choose not to pay the prices levied in their home countries.
Patients or "health tourists" travel from around the globe to Turkey, including the US, Japan, South Africa and South Korea. However, those that can benefit most are countries that are closer to Turkey. And you can pick up a flight for next to nothing with many airlines flying from London.
Of course, while Turkey has proven they can handle complex life-threatening surgeries, their bread and butter is still the cosmetic industry which accounts for 60% of their health tourism.
Hair Transplants In Turkey
And top of that list, aside from excellent dentistry and cosmetic surgeries is hair transplantation. Turkey is a mecca for excellence in hair transplantation. It's also where many of the world's top hair transplant surgeries reside. And it's also where many Western doctors learn their skills and artistry in this booming health sector. In fact, 65% of all global hair transplants take place in Turkey - which means they have had plenty of practice and are the best!
An All-Inclusive Break
The reason for these astounding numbers, aside from their excellence, is, of course, their prices. You can easily get a 3-day break in a 5-star hotel and a hair transplant in Turkey inside £1500.
Turkish clinics could not make it easier for you. Most will arrange your travel for you and include VIP transfers and an English-speaking coordinator. And many work with Western 5-star hotels to put on the luxury, you would want from a 3-day mini-break. And their connections mean they can get you even better value.
Hair restoration surgery usually takes place on the day after you arrive. And after three days of luxury, at hotels of the highest standards with Wi-Fi, restaurants, spas, swimming pools, 24-hour room service, and high-end hospitality, you won't want to leave. But on your return, you will be on your way to the hair of our dreams.
