I always ask my patients if they needed brain or heart surgery, would they try to find the least expensive doctor and hospital. Although hair transplants usually won’t kill you (although there have been deaths reported but they are rare in the US, Europe and Asia), what you get on your head from a hair transplant will (1) be there for everyone to see, (2) impact your donor supply so if the transplant is not part of a Master Plan, then a single hair transplant impact will be short term and there may be long term consequences of (a) depleting the donor supply, (b) continued balding which is 100% for men, and (3) growth, to be good, reflects the experience of the surgeon and his/her team. You may not get this with the least expensive option. The problem with many of the Turkey clinics, is that over 90% of them are illegal clinics and we never hear about deaths from anesthesia (because it would be bad for business) but we do see many complications in the US and Europe from many of these bad clinics.
