Elit Hair Transplant Turkey Summary

Booking Process

4 / 5

The Elit Hair Transplant Turkey website is quite user-friendly. Not only is it well-designed, but it also provides the user with an option to choose the language with which to view the information. We find this very convenient, especially when the prospective client is from abroad. To top it off, upon filling a comprehensive form and sending pictures of your head to the clinic via Whatsapp; you receive a free online consultation. During this conversation, Dr Balwi will inform you about the way forward for your hair loss plan.

Once he assesses your photos, the number of grafts needed to make a full hair recovery will be determined. Based on this, the clinic will give you the exact figure for the cost of your hair transplant. Also, their site has an extensive FAQ section that has all the answers to common questions concerning their procedures.

Pre-Operational Consultations

1 / 5

When it comes to pre-op care, the information on the website is not precise. One of the gaps we observed is the lack of adequate details concerning the diet to follow and drugs to avoid before the procedure. This being a serious surgery, guidance is essential from the point of the initial online consultation to the operation.

It doesn’t get any better. The clinic has no pre-op consultation, nor does it have any pre-operational medication in their standard package. Once you are through booking an appointment for your procedure, you can only change it at an additional cost. All these extra prices make their services expensive in comparison to some other hair transplant clinics all over Turkey.

Arrival & Accommodation

3 / 5

With the Elit Hair Transplant clinic, all you have to worry about is booking your plane tickets. From that point on, they will ensure your experience upon landing at the airport is delightful.

On arrival, their driver will pick you from the airport and take you to the clinic. There, they will perform blood tests and later take you to a 4-star hotel located within the immediate vicinity of the clinic. During your entire stay, an interpreter will be provided so you will have no communication issues.

All these services are included in their standard all-inclusive package. It is, however, important to note that the accommodation they offer lasts for only two nights and there wasn’t any information on whether any meals are included. If you intend to stay in Turkey for more days, the clinic can help you extend your booking at a fee.


3 / 5

The Elit Hair Transplant Turkey has invested in state-of-the-art facilities and equipment for the best possible treatment and care. Plus, the techniques used are modern and highly-innovative to deliver the best results. On top of that, the clinic operates in a private hospital with JCI accreditation showing it upholds international health standards.

The clinic is highly praised for its medical team’s professionalism and dedication in most of its reviews. They also have an outstanding customer support service available 24/7. Unfortunately, they fail to prioritise the comfort of their clients as they offer basic services such as lunch, clothes, and entertainment at an extra cost.

Surgery & Doctor Involvement

2 / 5

At Elit Hair Transplant Turkey, you are ensured top-notch treatment by their skilled medical team led by Dr Abdulaziz Balwi. The team is also conversant in English and will provide step by step details at each stage of the procedure to keep you aware of everything that is happening. They always perform their surgeries under local anaesthesia, so you do not have to worry about any pain during transplantation.


1 / 5

The post-operational package at Elit Hair Transplant Turkey is below standard compared to what other clinics in Turkey are offering. It is unfortunate to find that while they provide aftercare products such as shampoos and lotions, they come at an extra cost. That’s not all; even their post-op consultation attracts a fee. On the plus side, they are very confident with their results and give a 90% hair growth guarantee. Their post-operative treatments are also thorough, to ensure your healing phase is speedy and completely painless.


We Rate Elit Hair Transplant Turkey


Elit Hair Transplant Turkey is a well-recognised clinic with experienced doctors and high-quality equipment. However, some of their service provision is off-putting, which is why it scored 2.33 out of 5.

On a positive note, Elit Hair Transplant Clinic provides an English-speaking driver, and its doctors are also fluent in English. If you would prefer any other language, a translator is on stand by. Their surgeries are performed under the supervision of a physician to ensure a smooth operation with satisfactory results. The clinic uses a variety of hair transplantation methods which are modern to suit the various needs of their clients.

The Elit Hair Transplant clinic is confident and guarantees good results for all their hair transplants. Most of their pre-care and post-care services are not in the all-inclusive package and come at an extra cost. Which is a significant drawback on their part as these services are crucial in providing the best possible results and are also standard in many other hair transplant clinics in Turkey.

Are Elit Hair Transplant Turkey transplants done by Dr Balwi?

Dr Balwi is a reputable hair transplant surgeon and has been performing all hair recovery procedures at the Elit Hair Transplant clinic since 2010. He graduated from the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Ege in 2010 and got his medical license in the same year. Since then, he has gained a lot of experience working in the field, and in 2015, he underwent training in hair transplant-related courses such as mesotherapy. Also, he organises and participates in international conferences to increase his expertise in the procedure.

The doctor uses the latest hair transplant method, which is the Sapphire FUE technique with sapphire blades. Additionally, he has developed a shampoo, and anti-hair loss spray designed to ensure your hair is healthy, both before and after your transplant. It would have been better if the clinic included their aftercare products in the standard package. Still, any extra service comes at a cost at Elit Hair Transplant clinic, so be a little keen on that.

Methods and Treatments

Elit Hair Transplant Turkey Transplantation Methods & Treatments

The FUE hair transplant method is currently the most used technique at the Elit Hair Transplant clinic. The clinic also exclusively combines high-quality sapphire blades with the FUE method to perform precise operations with minimal scars. Dr Balwi was among the first hair transplant doctors to use the technique, and some of the benefits he highlighted included more natural results, faster healing, and low scab formation.

Although not modern, the clinic also practices the FUT technique. And, to ensure no marks are left, the doctor transfers linear donor follicles directly into the scars. At Elit Hair Transplant clinic, you can also get a beard and eyebrow hair transplant, and other hair growth therapies as well. The clinic only performs hair transplants and isn’t involved in any other types of surgeries.

Costs and Packages

Elit Hair Transplant Turkey Cost of Hair Transplants, Available Packages And Extras

With no clear price list available on their website, it is difficult to gauge whether Elit Hair Transplant Turkey is a high-priced clinic or not. However, with the few details on their standard package as well as costs for any extra services, we would suggest you inquire about the total cost first. Here is what their standard package entails:

Pre and post-care consultations are considered as extra costs along with the price of your initial blood test. Upon the completion of your payment, you’ll receive a confirmation email with all the relevant details concerning your procedure and costs. The clinic has no deposit option, so the procedure is paid for in full before it can be done.
