Dreaming of a perfect nose or a generous cleavage? 300K people have similar dreams and come to Turkey for plastic surgery to let their dreams come true every year! They choose Turkish plastic surgeons due to excellent services, affordable prices, which are 2-3 times lower than in the USA or Europe, and unique hospitality. Let us find out how it works and how much it costs.
1. Trusted facilities
More than 1000 clinics around the country are ready to accept foreign patients and serve them according to international standards. 49 clinics in Turkey have received the prestigious international JCI certificate which evaluates clinics with 1300 parameters and issues the certification if the facility meets at least 1100 of them. The best clinics in Turkey cooperate with leading American hospitals and institutions and immediately implement all developments at home.
2. Top-notch procedures
Over 1,200 specialists are certified by the International Association of Aesthetic and Plastic Surgeons (ISAPS) and offer international patients to provide all types of procedures. The most popular plastic surgery procedures in the country are breast surgery, liposuction, blepharoplasty, rhinoplasty, and hair transplant. Among others — face&neck lift, lip lift, double chin removal, vaginoplasty, gynecomastia surgery.
Over 100K people from all over the world choose Turkey for hair transplants every year. Every day, specialists from local centers perform about 200 transplants, according to IMTJ. The leading clinics in the country have performed about 85,000 hair transplant procedures.
The protection of personal data is taken highly responsibly in Turkey — clinics and doctors keep patients’ data behind seven locks. Among the clients are politicians, celebrities, sportsmen who extremely value their privacy.
Among those who are open to share their experience — the UAE Minister of Health who has implanted hair and the Living Cartoon from Sweden Pixee Fox who has chosen the Turkish plastic surgery clinic for changes.
4. Attractive costs and package prices
The cost of hair transplantation in Turkey is 1.5-3 times lower than in South Korea, European countries, the USA. The pricing policy is monitored by the state with special regulations.
According to the Bookimed medical platform, the price range in certified Turkish clinics is for:
- Breast augmentation: $3,000-$5,000
- Rhinoplasty: $1,500-$6,000
- Blepharoplasty: $800-$3,500
- Liposuction: $1,300-$4,000 per area.
Following the trends of all-inclusive packages for vacations, which now are firmly associated with Turkey, clinics have adopted this approach to medical services. The package price is extremely popular for aesthetic procedures. The high competition between clinics to attract more foreigners plays in patients’ favor as these packages include extra services and cost less. Some centers arrange sightseeing tours and meals as an addition to medical and care services.
The price of the aesthetic surgery package on average includes:
- surgical intervention
- medical consumables (as implants for augmentation)
- preoperative tests, several days of hospitalization in the clinic, the doctor’s fee (it depends on his/her experience, skills, personal brand, etc.),
- fees of other medical staff
- transfer airport-hotel-airport
- 4/5* hotel accommodation.

- an initial examination and consultation with a hair transplant specialist
- the operation itself
- a postoperative stay in the clinic
- all necessary tests
- a meeting at the airport, transfers
- language assistance if needed.
It will cost somewhere between $1,500 and $3,500.
