About Dr. Mehmet Erdogan

Dr. Mehmet Erdogan is a hair transplant surgeon who attained his medical degree at Yeditepe University. He is one of the co-founders of Smile Hair Clinic and is a member of the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS).

He began his career as a doctor at the Acibadem Health Group, shortly after which he transferred to Medicana Health Group to pursue his ambition of medical administration. Here, he rose to Deputy Chief Physician and his business acumen led him to also serve as Director of the International Patient Centre. In 2013 he became a certified hair transplant surgeon, since which he has developed his expertise and performed over 4,000 procedures.

Based on his advanced surgical skills, experience thereof and his in-depth understanding of medical tourism management, Dr. Erdogan was in a strong position to co-found Smile Hair Clinic in 2018. Like his colleagues here, he has gained a global reputation as a hair transplant specialist who uses modern techniques.

Dr. Erdogan uses the combined accuracy of a micro-motor tool for graft extraction and sapphire FUE for insertion. Through meticulous planning before the operation he is able to design very natural-looking hairlines, and he is also committed to innovating techniques - both are extensions of the clinic’s ‘True Philosophy’.

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

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
