Longevita Hair Transplant strives to be the top choice for medical tourism. It’s important that our patients can trust and rely on us to take the best possible care of them while meeting their needs. There are more than just a few things that we do to ensure to be the best hair transplant clinic in Turkey.
Longevita aims to provide affordable, high-quality private healthcare in Turkey. Long wait times can make elective surgeries inaccessible to many people around the world. In addition, it worsens health outcomes in the long run. However, medical tourists in Turkey do not have to face this problem.
Take the UK, for instance, where the long NHS waiting time has been a problem for decades and has only been worsened by the coronavirus pandemic. Millions of people are waiting for routine operations, of which hundreds and thousands have been queuing for over a year. In July 2021, the NHS England chief said it might take up to 3 years to clear the NHS backlog.
The underfunding, budget cuts and staffing problems have taken their toll on the system. Consequently, the health of many patients continues to deteriorate, and their problems end up worsening. The situation is even worse for those people who want to get cosmetic surgery.
Since the NHS considers hair transplant a cosmetic surgery, it doesn’t offer treatment for it. Losing hair causes many people mental anguish. It can affect their personal, professional and social life. For a hair transplant in the UK, they may have to pay tens of thousands of pounds.
How We Set Up the Best Hair Transplant Clinic in Turkey?
We identified the pain points of patients who were travelling to the country for a hair transplant.
A reason why some people hesitate to come to Turkey is that they are unsure about the healthcare standards. Moreover, they are in the dark about the facilities where the surgery would take place.
Longevita prioritizes patient safety every step of the way. For that, we make sure that the hair transplant clinic in Turkey and the surgeons hold certain certifications, registrations, and accreditations. They also need to follow a code of ethical conduct when it comes to patient care.
The certifications and accreditations are not just from local but also international organizations. Thus, the patient can rest assured that they will experience the highest standard of care. They can feel safe, comfortable, and calm.
12-Month Aftercare Program
Many people fear travelling to another country to get a hair transplant because they’re unsure of the aftercare. They worry about what would become of them if something went wrong back home. Longevita has a dedicated team of aftercare specialists and an online support portal. Patients will receive periodic follow-ups, free medical assessments at key stages of the recovery process and individual monitoring to ensure the best results are achieved.
The aftercare support portal has articles, infographic guides, downloadable resources to read and a patient forum to engage with fellow Longevita patients. In the portal, patients can also create customer support tickets for any questions or queries, and they can schedule video or audio calls with aftercare experts whenever they need support. In addition, we have a clinic in London where you can have check-up appointments or face-to-face consultations with hair transplant surgeons.
Best Price Guarantee
We are able to offer the most affordable treatments to our patients. In hair transplant clinics in the UK, the price varies according to the number of hair grafts the patient needs. The larger the area of baldness, the higher the cost of the surgery. Longevita, however, includes maximum grafts in each treatment session.

Longevita has adopted the core values of the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS) and the British Association of Hair Restoration Surgery (BAHRS) and uses them in selecting the clinics and hospitals for hair transplants. The core purpose of ISHRS is to improve the life quality of those individuals with hair loss. Their core values are:
