Illegal clinics, tragic results
According to official data, at least 60% of the estimated 500 clinics operating in Turkey are illegal and therefore not subject to any control. Essentially, these are non-certified “centres” that do not respect the basic rules of hygiene and in which hair transplants are not performed by doctors but by nurses, unskilled staff and even hairdressers! Thus, in most cases, the result of these hair transplants is tragic and often irreversible. In fact, there are many reports of patients who have complained that they have been victimized by petitions, resulting in loss of their money, or even that their lives were in danger due to tragic mistakes and omissions that were made during the hair transplant.
Is there a DHI clinic in Turkey?
Often, many patients ask if there is a DHI clinic in Turkey. The answer is no! And yet, dozens of clinics in Turkey claim to offer DHI’s advanced protocols at a much higher cost than any other technique (FUE, FUT). Of course, this is a bad imitation that has nothing to do with DHI and the Direct Hair Implantation protocols.
An online tour of Turkey’s hair transplant clinics is enough to uncover the magnitude of incredible fraud that is perpetrated daily at the expense of unsuspecting patients!
For this reason, DHI Global Medical Group asks patients to be very careful: Direct Hair Implantation is performed and offered exclusively by DHI centres and not by any non DHI clinic/doctor!
Cheap packages that… cost!
Hair transplants in illegal clinics in Turkey are economical but result in tragic results and therefore have painful consequences both for the patients’ psychology and their pocket. Therefore, most of the time, the “cheap solution” proves to be “catastrophic” since the result needs immediate repair with more than one intervention when this is feasible. For all these reasons, patients suffering from hair loss should not forget that hair transplantation is a medical act that must be performed only by experienced and certified doctors.
