"Everything worked as planned. The information about the varios stages of treatment during procedure could be a little bit better."

Everything worked as planned. Airport transfer, hotel, etc. Facilities were clean and staff was friendly. But communication could be better. The information about the varios stages of treatment during procedure could be a little bit better.

Great experience.

"The overall trip was a success for the price issued. Qunomedical is the best 3rd part site you can find to assist in finding any treatment you could want. "

Picked up from the airport earlier than expected. Drove to the hospital same day and completed some blood test so we wouldn't waste time the following day. The day of the surgery

was quick and precise. The doctors were really friendly and made sure to answer questions in the most professional manner available. The facility was really clean and tidy.

"All in all, amazing experience - really lovely, skilled people who take great pride & care in what they do, and at no point have I felt at all like I was on any kind of rushed-in, rushed-out conveyor belt."

I think like most people, I had some reservations before booking - it's a pretty intense, life-changing (good or bad) decision to go ahead with this procedure. I am very happy to inform you that it's now 4 days since my treatment & I honestly think it was one of the best decisions I ever made. The staff were so nice & so helpful & have really made the whole process run like a dream. There is some small discomfort during the procedure obviously - it is surgery after all - but honestly the pain is negligeable. There are quite a lot of injections, but the anaesthetic kicks in very quickly, so after, perhaps, 10 minutes of maybe 5/10 on a basic pain scale, you honestly feel nothing at all after that. Throughout the procedure the doctors, nurses & technicians all chat to you & make sure you're ok, and there's always at least one person in the room who speaks English in case you have questions. I actually fell asleep for the last hour or so, which I was told happens with 90% of patience. It's that painless. I had

...

originally booked to come & go quickly over just the two nights required, but actually, Istanbul is a lovely city so I extended by a further week, which I very much recommend. I have been able to go back to the hospital two extra times to speak with the team, have shampoos & creams professionally applied & so forth, which has been invaluable - well above & beyond what I had expected. On top of which, you do feel a little achy & lethargic for the first few days after the procedure (your head does need time to actually heal after all), so there's honestly no major benefit in rushing straight home again if you can possibly avoid. Just for peace of mind alone, it's well worth staying 5 days to a week if you can. I'm now day 4 post-op & although my donor area is a little achy still, & my scalp in general feels tight (like you're wearing a swimming cap more or less), other than that I'm pretty much back to normal. Most of the redness & scabbing has gone & id imagine by the end of one week I should probably be able to go out without a hat on - which is pretty crazy. All in all, amazing experience - really lovely, skilled people who take great pride & care in what they do, and at no point have I felt at all like I was on any kind of rushed-in, rushed-out conveyor belt. It's a very personal service where they check in with you regularly during your entire stay - & are personally available to you 24/7 by whatsapp, no matter how small the query. I really can't recommend it enough. Coree has been great throughout. I ummed & arred for a good few months after our initial conversation & she was totally cool & patient with me whilst I made my mind up to go ahead, which was very decent of her. It IS a big decision for most people (I'd imagine) so I wanna thank her for not being too pushy. She kept lines of communication open just the right amount, and now that I have gone ahead with the procedure, I'm so so pleased (so far!) - & I can't thank her enough :)

"I'm very satisfied how Qunomedical arranged my hole procedure. They answered all my questions and send my medical questions directly to the clinic."

I'm satisfied about the hole procedure. All the transfers where on time in good cars, 4*hotel Holiday Inn was very good as wel. The most important: I found my teatiment at Smile Hair Clinic good and professional. I was treated by doctor Erdogan.

...

Dr Erdegan and his team are very friendly. Dr Erdogan starts on treatment day with a consultation what to expect. Creates your new hair line and then the team starts doing the job. Beside the local anaesthesia the clinic supplys you tranquilizers to stay comfortable during the treatment. Duration of treatment is a full day. Next day an check up with wash instructions ect. I'm very satisfied how Qunomedical arranged my hole procedure. They answered all my questions and send my medical questions directly to the clinic.

growth matches it!! For some reason your attempts to call me on the phone never worked out. Not a problem as you were always available then I rang you. The only slight issue was due to a member of staff being out of office for a few days I ended up dealing with two or three different members of your team which was a little confusing. But not a problem that I would blame anyone for at all!

"I would highly recommend the SmileHairclinic for their outstanding service and performance. I would also recommend staying in Istanbul some extra nights, so youre close to the clinic in case and recovering in a relaxed way."

The first step of contacting Qunomedical was realy satisfying. I asked for a transplant just a few weeks before and they were able to book me in on July 4th. The information provided was great, also the FB page Hairlosscrusaders provides lots of tips and info. I spent a little holiday in Istanbul before the treatment, which was great to start all relaxed. I was picked up right on time and brought to the Hospital where Smile hairclinic is based. Dr.Erdogan was already waiting for me at the entrance and was most welcoming. I was brought to a room, very clean and comfortable, had a bloodsample taken and got some information to read. Dr. Erdogan went thrue all steps with me and after about a hour treatment could start. All staff were very friendly, calm and entertaining. After a shaven head i was brought to the operating room. The anasthetics given in the donor area were a bit painful, but it just takes a short time. Harvesting the donorhair was painless and

...

i think i slept for quite some time. When they finished, i had a small lunchbreak. Then it was time for anasthetics in my forehead, which was done with some sort of pistol. The first one hurts, after that you know whats coming, so no problem at all. Transplanting the 3100 grafts took a few hours, but also now i slept thrue it. After they wrre finished, i got an IV with antibiotics/painkillers and they put a bandage around my dono area. Ready to go back to my hotel. They provided some protecting covers for my pillow. I was a bit afraid i couldnt sleep sitting a bit up and afraid to hurt my head, but like dr. Erdogan said, your body know by instinct to keep your head safe. Hardly any leaking thrue the bandage the next morning. Back to the clinic they removed my bandage and surprisingly it could stay off because it was healing very well. They told me to come back for the washing the next day, to give my head a bit more time. I booked 4 extra nights, besides the 2 included, just to have a relaxed recovery. The next day my head was washed and again i was told it was healing realy well. Hardly any crusts. On the third day i had a mild swelling of the forehead, but took care of it with ice and the headband they provided me. Washing my head myself was quite easy and it looks better every day. I did not have any pain rhe days after, probably also of the medication provided. I would highly recommend the SmileHairclinic for their outstanding service and performance. I would also recommend staying in Istanbul some extra nights, so youre close to the clinic in case and recovering in a relaxed way. All in all a great experience and now waiting for the results to show. Confident it will be good! Great and clear communication. They were able to book me in just a few weeks before. Their help makes it so more easy!

"Its a very relaxed yet professional clinic whom clearly are experts in their field."

Team are very professional from start to finish. From the moment I arrived i was greeted by my own driver who took me to a lovely hotel. Dr Bilgin text me the next day to tell me what time my driver would be and the vehicle plates so I didn't get lost. I arrived at the clinic and Dr Bilgin met me outside and greeted me. The clinc was immaculate, everywhere was spotless. The nurse took my blood then we agreed on a new hairline ( I went with his recommendation).

...

The procedure was long but painless I only felt the anaesthetic jags to my donor area. The rest was easy. They took their time and I must say 6 days later it's already looking good. After surgery they walked me out and I went to hotel to rest. This was after they went over my post op care and gave me my meds and hair care products. The next day was the same. Got to the clinic and Dr Bilgin and Dr Erdogan both inspected the grafts and donor areas, changed my dressing then had tea with me, answering my questions and got me a cab to the airport. Very personal and excellent service. Its a very relaxed yet professional clinic whom clearly are experts in their field. Dr Bilgin has kept in touch most days and is always there to answer any questions. I would highly recommend these Doctors and their team. Dr Biligin amd Dr Erdogan made it very relaxed and personal. We had tea the next day in a cafe to go over everything amd they made me feel very relaxed.

"It was all spot on."

Picked up on time daily , very professional outfit , I was a bit dubious because it was Turkey, but it was all spot on.

I did ask about cutting my hair before the procedure, I was told to grow It a certain length, when I arrived they shaved my hair off.

"My hairline looks exceptional and I want to say a big massive thank you to Dr Bilgin and his team for everything they have done for me. I'm truly grateful for every effort put into this process."

I contacted Qunomedical initially few months back just to enquire for possibility of receiving treatment for myself. I was contacted by Emma who ended up being my consultant throughout my journey. I actually lost interest in going ahead with treatment as I knew I would never be able to afford to make myself look ordinary without big patches and significant receded areas across my head that I've been suffering with over past 15 years. Emma asked me to send her some images of my head including, front, back, sides and crown area. I really considered myself to be one of the worst cases and didn't feel at the time it was worth going ahead with. However I had a change of heart one day when I received a message from Qunomedical offering me a complete package that included the full cost of operation, hotel accommodation with food, pick up and drop off from Airport to hotel and hospital for a very reasonable price. I managed to save enough money to cover my flight and the package. Emma my consultant helped me to find flights at cheapest available price and also guided me to organise my visa so I would have no difficulties upon arrival in Turkey. I had to wait around two months for the day of my flight to arrive. In mean time Emma sent me confirmation of my hotel and details of the hospital including my allocated Doctor who will perform my operation. Within my confirmation paperwork I received an invite to join a Facebook group called Hair Crusaders and I took part in it actively for over a month prior to my flight. This group is a very positive tool as lots of patients who have already been treated by Qunomedical group share their experiences and journey of the Hair Transplant operation which has been extremely useful, particularly for people like me who are new to this and exhausted all other alternatives that have previously failed. This group is supported by Qunomedical and they at times step into discussions where appropriate if patients need further advice or support on particular issues. I think this is also very handy simply because you feel appropriately guided from all angles and nothing is ever said that is not straight down the line factual. I still use Hair Crusaders till this day. I travelled to Turkey / Istanbul on 18th June 2018. It was a very smooth flight and upon arrival I was quite nervous as I've never been operated on in any way or travelled alone particularly by plane for over 20 years.

...

At arrivals there was a driver amongst a crowd of people with a big sign saying Marcus O'Mara so it was very straight forward with transport to hotel. My driver made every effort possible to engage with me despite the weakness of his English language. He even got me a bottle of water while in heavy traffic which was very nice. Unfortunately I lost my phone when I arrived back at the hotel which created anxiety for me but the hotel staff were very supportive towards me and contacted Qunomedical who located the driver and helped me to obtain my phone that I accidentally left in the driver's vehicle. Following morning I had breakfast at 7:00 AM and was ready to be collected by my driver at 7:50. My original Doctor was changed from Dr Erdogan to Dr Bilgin however I was notified of this day before my flight by Dr Bilgin's secretary. I had a friendly greeting at the entrance of the hospital by Dr Bilgin himself who asked me for my passport to confirm who I am and proceeded to explain what will happen initially. To begin with I was taken to a part of the hospital for a blood test and was informed there is waiting time of up to one hour while results come through. Once results were confirmed as clear with no identified concerns Dr Bilgin invited me to his office where I had a one to one consultation. Dr Bilgin explained absolutely everything I needed to know and gave me plenty of opportunity to ask additional questions. I informed Dr Bilgin I was nervous about the operation at this time. Dr Bilgin gave me medication prior to the operation to help me relax. I was taken to a pre operative room for few minutes where I was then asked to join the medical team to engage in my operation. I had markings made on my head and Dr Bilgin encouraged me to be sure on hair line design before going ahead and gave me the option to choose a style that I felt most comfortable with. I felt this was very person centred and it made me very happy given the amount of consideration Dr Bilgin had towards my feelings of the process. I had my hair fully shaved with clippers and was asked to transfer myself onto the operating bed. I was given local anesthesia to numb the back of my head. I did find this a bit sore as I was given several of these before the procedure fully started but once it was over I experienced no pain of any description for a whole nine hours. I was given food at lunch time that was nice and filling. At the end of my operation Dr Bilgin provided me with medication and explained what I need to do when returning back to hotel and arranged for my transport. I had my head thoroughly cleaned before dressings were applied and then returned back to the hotel. I found the hospital very clean and medical team was highly attentive towards me and kept me informed from start to finish while asking if I was okay and how I was feeling. Before leaving the hospital I was also connected to a drip were antibiotics where put into my vein before discharge. I had a nice meal at the hotel during the evening. I feel it would of been nice to have someone to talk to that was also going through the same type of operation while staying at the hotel but I felt very tired after my meal and slept until morning. I was collected by my normal driver at 9:00AM and again taken to Hair Smile Clinic to meet Dr Bilgin at the hospital for my post operative check. Dr Bilgin and his team met me at the front of the hospital as I arrived. Dr Bilgin checked my donor area and was happy to say there was no infection and it was healing well already. I had my head re-washed and treated with antibiotic cream plus redressed to protect the donor area. Dr Bilgin explained how to administer my new medication as well as a full explanation of aftercare routine. Dr Bilgin requested I maintain contact and send a picture from 13th day so he can see how much progress I am making. Although I am only three days after my operation I feel very positive about the whole experience I would definitely rate Dr Bilgin 10/10 for the way he looked after me during my time at the hospital. I would like to hope many more people attend the Hair Smile Clinic and have the same level of treatment I just had. I am more than satisfied with the work carried out on myself. My hairline looks exceptional and I want to say a big massive thank you to Dr Bilgin and his team for everything they have done for me. I'm truly grateful for every effort put into this process. There is really nothing that could be done better. It was a great experience and I am looking forward to watching my hair regrow. Thank you again excellent work

"It was a first class experience, cant sing enough praises. And to top it all the transplant has worked very well."

I arrived in Istanbul, busy airport to be collected as promised by a car / driver provided by Smile Hair Clinic, must say good start as it was a clean high spec saloon car. I arrived at my hotel, could not be nicer, great standard of hotel just as the website had promised. Room and facilities first class. The day after prompt at 8.30am a car came to collect me at the hotel reception. We arrived at the medical centre and it was a pleasant surprise, a clean professional modern centre with reception very polite and helpful. I then

...

met the guys who were overseeing the transplant procedure, there was no language issues, they all spoke good English so no problems in filling me in with procedures for the whole transplant. Felt totally at ease and in good hands. Just after 9.30am we got started the transplant, all the way through the guys came to check that I was ok, the nurses where great that performed part of the transplant. Everybody I met was very nice. Once the transplant had finished we had a consultation about pain killers / antibiotics and what to do that first evening. Also we discussed when I would call in to the medical centre next after 24 hours to have another consultation / hair wash. That first night the people at the medical centre where to hand by phone just in case I needed anything. I was fine though, the procedure went well and I didn’t have any issues. On my visits to the medical centre for check ups I was again collected and dropped back at the hotel as promised. It was a first class experience, cant sing enough praises. And to top it all the transplant has worked very well.

Overall the experience was good. However, to improve service going forward there are certain areas that can be looked and improved on.

you travel there for the first time a bit aprehansive it does not put you at ease. However, the picks and drop off were on time. Staff treated me very on arrival until final day and offer great after support too. Facilities were good and clean as I would expect. The communication very good and very reposnsice to all requests in minutes. Support on booking air tickets were great too. Maybe find out more about the patient and there needs again set expectation around experience if they traveled to Istanbul before as at times it can be known as a hostile place in the past. Staff have always been help pre and post surgery.

"I was very pleased with the whole process. Emma from Qunomedical was really nice :) She made me feel a lot more confident in the whole process."

I was very pleased with the whole process. It still too early to judge the results of my FUE but I'm confident it will turn out well great. The staff were very friendly and professional. The after care service has also been great so far with the doctor personally getting back to me on whatsapp with any questions I

...

have and also looking at pictures I've sent to him. Emma from Qunomedical was really nice :) She made me feel a lot more confident in the whole process as I was a little nervous to have finally committed to it. The only thing that I think could be a little better is the documentation. The advice differs slightly from the documents I received from Qunomedical and the clinic. Reading online about aftercare for FUE there is a lot of different advice and talking to other patients from other clinics on the flight home we all had different plans to follow. I was quite paranoid about getting anything wrong so hearing all the different advice was little confusing.

"Everything was absolutely perfect"

I had a hair problem and that's why I contacted them. I could say that I was a little nervous about what to expect. However, since the first moment I walked in the clinic, everything was absolutely perfect. The doctor explained me the procedure, asking me about my concerns and doubts and after following the regular protocol, everything started. The surgery took about 7 hours with a break for lunch. Afterward, the doctor attends to me like usually

...

in a professional way and asking me about it. I went 2 days later for checking it out and again, the professionalism of all the doctors and staff is one of the things I would like to highlight. They were very supportive of me, asking me about how I felt, giving me all the post - medication, giving me advice on the procedure for washing my "new hair ". In other words, the general manager, a doctor too, was excellent too. In conclusion, after 3 being days being a patient with them, I'm Completely satisfied. In addition, I have to say that the coordinator, Mrs. Natallia, helped me out a lot in terms of logistics ( figuring out the day of the surgery, all the arrangements), how, when and where they will pick me up from the airport, hotel. Hard work that she did perfectly. Excellent, all the staff are professional environment, excellent procedures, and high quality.

"This clinic have years of experience and it shows."

I traveled to Istanbul from the uk on the 20th June after arranging everything with ease via phone , text and email with Dr.Mehmet. I was picked up from the airport as arranged and taken to the beautiful Crowne Plaza istanbul The following morning I was collected at 8am for the procedure to start - everything went a discussed prior to my visit and at all times I felt comfortable and well informed, definitely in good hands for sure. By dinner time my grafts has

...

been harvested from the back and were been prepared for transplanting whilst I ate the beautiful dinner provided. The grafts 4000+ were then implanted pain free and i was given all my medication and taken back to the hotel. The following day was mine and after a very comfortable sleep which I didn’t expect I toured Istanbul for most of the day before been taken back to Hospital for my head to be washed and checked on. Everything was fine and here we are 10 months later extremely happy with my results thus far - I studied many places and options before taken the plunge and understood that for final results it can be 18months (thickness etc) but all in all my visit to Turkey was brilliant and I have a new found confidence from the results - DO NOT try anywhere else This clinic have years of experience and it shows. Thank you to the all doctors and nurses some of which I am still in contact with often

"Had a wonderful experience"

Hi my name is Nazeer Khan. I am from India but live in the UAE. I had my hair transplant on Jan 2017. Everything was perfect until now. Waiting for my result. I just want to share my review it may be helpful for someone because I did the same. In My case, I had a bald on front and crown area and top. I had very less hair donor area which can give only 4000 grafts in my opinion & my hairs getting thin too. So I asked many clinics everyone said 5000 grafts 4000 grafts they can cover entire head and some of them are not professional be aware of it. Only few said they can harvest over

...

2500 to 3000 grafts maximum and it will not cover my full head. In that few clinic also said they want to take from other body parts but I don't feel it will look good. So I got confused to what to do. Having less donor area and also want to cover full head its only possible to choose the right hospital. Then I check every clinics review in India, Iran, Turkey and finally I enquired with hospital-based clinics Eurasiamed partnership of Medicana Camlica Hospital. My advise for everyone choose hospital- based clinics. From the day 1 they are very responsive and helpful, Honest and clear my all doubts even doctor chat me and clear my doubts and he told the truth that he will try minimum 3000 to maximum 3500 grafts but it will not be cover my full head but he will try the best. So I feel this one will be my good choice. So everything went good. Transport, operation, post care medication as they mentioned everything was done great. But only thing doctor didn't perform operation their technicians only did. But they also professional. They take care good also and doctor visit every hours and checks. So 1 week over after operation waiting for my final result. Hope for others whoever visiting this clinic hope they will do their best. Thank you good luck. Had a wonderful experience. Everything was good. Thanks for Eurasiamed and their team.

"My experience was terrific and I couldn't have been happier"

Wow Wow. What a experience to have & is the best you can ever wish with any doctor, staff, or facility. From beginning to end they were warm welcoming and always asking if I needed anything offering me tea or coffee & anything I needed.. I arrived at this facility for not just my day of operation but for pre-operative and postoperative visits as well. I was put up in a brand-new state-of-the-art stunning 4 star hotel that included my breakfasts and I had a taxi pick waiting to pick me up and return me to my hotel for all of my visits to the facility and it was a nice clean car with a great drivers who was on time every time. Even the

...

doctors never made me to wait not even a second something which is unheard of in England public medical hospitals Here these doctors were there to greet me at the door each and every time I arrived. The doctors here are extremely knowledgeable and spoke perfect English answering all of my questions whether my questions were medically related to my procedure or not and addressed all of my concerns with genuine compassion. I have never been so comfortable nor confident with any hospital or it's staff ever in my life. My life will change forever due my hair coming bk. Was so impressed I even managed to do dental clean up on my last day. Am hoping to come back for other treatment soon. Is 7 days & my friends are so impressed they want to do it. 😁 Fever for the future. Fever Turkey & Istanbul 1 ❤️ 🇹🇷 Peace be upon to all turkey people My experience was terrific and I couldn't have been happier with all of the accommodations and the outcome of my procedure is incredible. I am with just a humble job in London. I was treated so lovely as I have never ever experienced in my life anywhere. I believe this place to be the very best and could not imagine how great & amazing treatment given to me. I want to give doctors & staff whom gave me treatment of a life time a big thank you. Surely will bring more people for treatment.

"It's only been 6 days since the transplant but they seem to have done an amazing job"

So I just had my hair transplant because I was starting to go bald. It's only been 6 days since the transplant but they seem to have done an amazing job. The surgery is long 8hrs and it seems never ending, drifting in and out of sleep throughout the procedure. The only painful part is the injections into your scalp to numb the donor and transplant areas. Sleeping is a problem afterwards as you have to make sure that the hair transplant areas aren't touching the pillow. It's a good idea if you smoke to quit before the transplant. I was only told not to smoke 24hrs prior to the surgery and on the day of the surgery I was told its best not to smoke anymore as it can effect the transplant. If you are a smoker I'm sure you will understand what i'm getting at. Happy transplant and good luck.

...

I chose this clinic because when they were very helpful answering my questions when I was making a decision about what clinic to choose and the price was also great. I was picked up by the driver who didn't speak English. Luckily he then hands me a mobile phone and then I received a call from the doctor telling me that the phone is for me while I'm there and if I have any problems I can call them which was great. I was taken to the hospital which was very nice and clean and then I met doctor who explained what was going to happen and then I went for surgery. After I was taken to the hotel which wasn't so great. I was put in a room facing a petrol station on the 1st floor. I could hear everything. I spoke to the hotel and they said they could only move me the next day. I was unable to rest because of the noise. Finally the next day I was moved to a nice quiet room and I was able to rest. But the hotel staff didn't seem to want to help The TV is only in Turkish and Arabic and a few other channels so if you only speak English it's not so good, so make sure you bring your laptop or a book to keep you busy while your are resting. Breakfast is simple at the hotel but there are lots of restaurants close by if you want to have something different. Other than my drama with the room on the first day I had a really good experience and would recommend this clinic to my friends. If you have any problems or are not happy with something I'd advise you to contact the hospital staff who are very helpful.

By far the best experience I've ever had with any doctor, staff, or facility. From beginning to end they were warm courteous and always asking if I needed anything offering me tea or coffee and feeding me with delicious local cuisine's every single time I arrived at this facility for not just my day of operation but for pre-operative and postoperative visits as well.

I believe this place to be the very best and could not imagine how it could be any better.

"Now I am the happiest person in the world "

It's really upsetting and feeling uncomfortable to be baldy, I felt like an old man!!! But thank god I have found this clinic (Eurasiamed Hair Clinic ) in Istanbul to do my hair transplant. My wonderful experience was a one week journey to the lovely city of Istanbul. When I arrived at Istanbul Ataturk airport the friendly and respectable gentleman from the clinic was waiting for me to take me to the hotel. Hotel was booked, free

...

transport any time I needed it. The day after in the early morning I met with the doctors at the clinic. After they have done all the necessary and important health check ups, they have started with my hair transplantation, a group of experienced friendly and helpful staff where around me for almost 7 hours... so everything was going nice and smoothly, no hardship no difficulties .... I didn't felt any pains, apart from at the beginning when they took the hair from donor area to prepare it for the reception area, the day after I had one day relaxation enjoying the nice Turkish cuisine, after that day was the time for my first hair wash at the clinic by the doctors... That was all I have experienced... everything went very quickly... Now I am the happiest person in the world... All the best to all... keep away from people calling you : the Baldy Man...

"Everything was very well organized and done in a very professional way which is very much appreciated especially if you want to do such operation in a foreign country and being so warmly treated and taken care of."

I came in contact with SMLIE HAIR CLINIC and Dr. Mehmet for the first time via a friend’s recommendation. From my first correspondence with Dr. Mehmet I felt very well taken care of and all my questions and concerns were properly addressed. Once decided to make this operation all the necessary details and scheduling was done very quickly and adopted to my

...

very busy life schedule. In addition to all the pre-preparation work what I really appreciated most was once arrived in Istanbul everything was so well organized e.g. the pick up from the airport, transportation to/from hospital and the hotel in Istanbul. My first meeting with Dr. Mehmet, Dr. Hüseyin and rest of the team at the hospital, time spent to explain the entire process to me, the quality and cleanness of the facility, proper follow up after the operation so everything was very well organized and done in a very professional way. This is very much appreciated especially if you want to do such operation in a foreign country and being so warmly treated and taken care of. I can strongly recommend this hospital.

"All the members of their team are perfect; they guided me through every step of the process."

I had been wandering around the web if i should have this operation or not when i met these guys, Dr. Mehmet and Dr. Gokay. All the members of their

...

team are perfect; they guided me through every step of the process. Doctors were near during all operation and explained me every phase one by one. It was painless and finished in 8 hours. I went back to my work after 4 days. After 10 days people should look carefull to understand if i had an operation. This operation changed my life.

"So i recommend this team to anyone who thinks to have hairtransplant."

I was very afraid that it would be obvious that i had a hairtransplant and unnatural look. These guys are real artists in designing a natural frontline that even people

...

look very close it will be hard them to tell if you had transplant. They very helpfull and guided me all over my trip. Transportation and hotel was also very good. They pick you up from airport with a minivan which directly brings you to a 5 star hotel. So i recommend this team to anyone who thinks to have hairtransplant.

"I’m so thankful for Dr. Mehmet and their team at natural transplant, and they made me feel home."

I was very afraid to go another country and have an operation. I had reached Smile Hair Clinic and they convienced that everything will go smooth. It was a leap of faith for me to trust someone who i had never seen before. All my fears vanished when i met them. All of the staff were so friendly, welcoming, caring & helpful. Operation day they a driver

...

picked me up from the hotel and brought me to hospital. We all together decided how my hairline should look like and where to focus to get best result. They applied local anesthetics that gave me a sensation of burn, the only part i felt pain. After anestehisa they harvested follicles from my donor (back) area. Then doctor opened tiny holes that would be new homes of my follicles. And final part was inserting follicles to that tiny holes. I slept fort he most of it and watched TV. After procedure they gave me drugs and explained how to use them and again their driver take me back to hotel. I am confident my new hair will grow. I’m so thankful for Dr. Mehmet and their team at natural transplant, and they made me feel home.

"It has been 3 months from my operation and i can clearly see how ladies and Dr. Gokay did an amazing job."

I am a 28 years old female who has been suffering from traction alopecia.For many years i have tried lots of supplements but didnt get any result at all. So i began searching an oppurtunity to have FUE hairtransplantation as a solution to my problem. After i spoke many people, most of them were not even doctors, via whatsapp i decided to have my trasnplant in Smile Hair Clinic. So me and my husband flied to Istanbul. We were greeted in airport and went to our 5 star hotel were we had a very good rest untill morning. We had been greeted by Natali, patient coordinator, in the hospital. I completed consent and medical release documents with Natali. While we waited we were able to relax and watch television and I was able to

...

change into my button up shirt (procedure day instructions). I did a consultation with Dr. Gokay. in which he assessed my hairline and hair loss and together we decided on how my new hairline should look. Next i had to decide shaving or not shaving the recipient area. Dr. Gokay explained there was a possibly of my old hair dislodging the new grafts if we did not shave. I wanted to have maximum grafts so i let them shave the recipient and donor area. The 2 assistants helped me to lie on the chair and started the local anesthesia. This was the most painful part of the procedure, especially when the ladies did the injections around my forehead. The injections were similar to a bee sting that lasted a few seconds. During this time Dr. Gokay came in few times to check on me and make sure everything was going well which made me feel very comfortable. After that they began to remove grats one by one from donor area which took nearly 1 hour. Next Dr. Gokay started making tiny slits in the recipient area for the grafts using an instrument with a sharp blade. Next technicians put grafts ito that slits. Instructions had been given about the drugs they had provided for me. And we went back to our hotel. It has been 3 months from my operation and i can clearly see how ladies and Dr. Gokay did an amazing job. They have a great team! I really can not explain how gratefull i am. I am angry myself for not getting this done sooner!

"For the second session, I will come to Istanbul again and entrust myself to this team again"

First I must say that I never expected such a good service. I had a very professional team that was interested in me every moment from the first minute that I contacted them and I was

...

on the plane to back home. Only the driver was a little late just on the way from the hotel to the hospital on the day of the operation. Apart from that, I can say that the entire process went smoothly. At the online consultation, the doctor told me I needed a second session. For the second session, I will come to Istanbul again and entrust myself to this team again Thank you all

"All included package is very suitable for all international patients."

My friend made hair transplant last year with Smile Hair Clinic and when I saw how he was satisfied I decided to contact to the team. They arranged all my trip, I didn’t spend one cent more than what is agreed. All

...

included package is very suitable for all international patients. Istanbull is very good city. The hotel which I stayed has shopping mall and metro station so I could shop and make sight seeing very easily. I spent one day more than necessary. The hospital is clean and doctor is very helpful, I still ask him questions by whatsapp and he replies always. Medical Coordinator solved my problem with room at 23 oclock in the night by calling reception. Such a service! Thank you all
