An accelerated journey of two perfectionists! // An accelerated journey, started by two perfectionists!

It all started with Dr. M. Erdogan and Dr. G. Bilgin's passion for advancement in hair transplantation. Devoting years of experience to FUE hair transplantation techniques, led them to introduce their difference in medical aesthetics (or hair transplantation) by establishing Smile Hair Clinic in 2018.

Since then, Smile Hair Clinic has been a global benchmark for best-in-class medical hair transplantation clinics in the region. Its reputation has been celebrated by many authorities including BBC Healthcare Tourism Documentary Series.

Smile Hair Clinic is re-located to the financial district of East Istanbul and continues its operation in its 7-floor, elegantly designed, high–tech clinic building where a team of 100+ well-trained staff are working. The quality and excellence of hair transplantation operations performed at Smile, depend on intensive training procedures. Every team member at Smile is well-trained and tested by True Philosophy success criteria.

Founders' top priority consists of three critic components: Aesthetics, an extremely natural looking hair is one of the top pursuits at the operations; the ultimate comfort of patient during and after the operation is ensured by numerous measures; and the total transformation of the patient in the long run is always closely monitored. Smile Hair Clinic today, brings a visionary perspective to hair transplantation by handling the whole process in a holistic way. For Smile, it's not just the medical operation, but a total experience starting with a total hospitality experience, continued with the operation day and starting a new chapter in the life of the patient.

Smile Hair Clinic has been a meeting point of 10.000+ gentlemen along the way where many lives have been transformed in a way batter way. For many, Smile is not only a medical clinic but the meeting point of enthusiastics and perfectionists.

At Smile, we believe in continuous improvement, an ultimate perfectionism through advancement in research and always being open to innovative technologies. The future is always ahead of us with new chapters in life.

Great clinic and great hotel.

From getting off my flight in Istanbul i was looked after until they returned me to airport. Friendly staff, great hotel with lovely restaurant attached. The procedure was pretty painful for the first 10-15 minuted until the anaesthetic kicks in they you don't feel much pain at all. Its just uncomfortable and boring for 7-8 hours. Overall I am happy with how my treatment went however i will not see results for a few months yet. Was a slight misunderstanding with my payment as i chose to pay... Show more

Overall a good experience with minor bumps

Booking experience and contact with Qunomedical was very good. I am 26 and had so called "widows peaks" (circular bald spots on the sides). I could hide them using my curly hair but with wind or when I sweat, they became more visible and it bothered me. People told me "you cant even see it" but it doesnt matter what others cant see, you see it for yourself and it bothers you. I chose Hair Smile Clinic and I personally cant give a proper review of the result yet because I am on day 13. I can j... Show more

OUTSTANDING!

From start to finish this was a friendly professional efficient experience. Smile clinic go above and beyond what u pay for. The only thing that I can complain about was having to book a flight after 1400 hrs on the 3rd day as u need to go into the clinic in the morning but I could see this could of been done early morning and I could have booked a earlier flight and saved myself £160 but as the only flight after 1400hr was at 1700 hr so I had a long wait in the airport. I would highly reco... Show more

Good experience but soon to tell.

Qunomedical did a good job of recommending the service and helping to narrow my choice of a clinic. I was fairly pleased with the procedure however I feel their equipment could have been a little more comfortable. Their injections of the anesthetic were very painful, however necessary they were. I feel that with a little more time with the injections, giving more injections covering a smaller area, might have made them a little less painful. The equipment for patient reclining and resting of th... Show more
