Emrah Cinik Hair Transplant Review Summary

Booking process

5/5

Emrah Cinik clinic gets a thumbs up from us when it comes to its booking process, which is well elaborated on the website. Clients can reach out to the clinic through an online contact form, and shortly after, the team at Emrah Cinik will respond. This is the first step of the free online consultation offered by the clinic, where you will engage with Dr Emrah Cinik about your hair analysis. To determine the best course of action for your Emrah Cinik hair transplant, clients are required to provide several images of their hair for evaluation.

After the evaluation, Dr Emrah will advise you on the best treatment, and then you can proceed to book a date. A good thing about the clinic is that all the necessary information is readily available on the site for you to scrutinise. Costs of the various packages are clearly stated, and the procedure is highlighted from the start till finish. One thing to note is that the clinic requires a deposit fee of $500.

(Pre-operational) Consultations

2/5

The clinic only sets a date when the client is comfortable to travel to Istanbul for the hair transplant, and issues on visa arrangements are all up to the client. For the short period before you take your flight, Dr Emrah advises his clients to avoid smoking. Other than that, there was no information on the site about the clinic’s input in your travel arrangements.

Likewise, there are no recommendations on the best nutrition to maintain as you wait to have your hair transplant. What the clinic assures you, however, is that once you land in Istanbul, everything will be taken care of. After spending a night in Istanbul, there will be another intensive consultation the next day at the clinic, which aims to capture every vital detail, and a few tests will also be carried out.

Arrival & Accommodation

4/5

Upon your arrival in Istanbul, your driver will be waiting for you at the airport ready to take you to your hotel. Emrah Cinik has organised a three nights stay at Dedeman Istanbul Hotel, which is a luxurious 4-star hotel.

Other than comfortable rooms, the hotel will offer you breakfast and Wi-Fi. So, meals such as lunch and dinner will come at an extra cost, or you can have them outside the hotel. Your driver will be available for your internal transfers to and from Emrah Cinik Clinic. Also, the driver will be proficient in English so you won’t have to worry about the language barrier.

Your first day in the clinic is all about getting to know the staff and the doctor personally and having your blood test done. As you wait for your operation the next day and also the days after, you can go on an excursion and check out the two closest malls to the clinic—Cevahir and Zorlu shopping centres.

Facility

2/5

Emrah Cinik is a state-of-the-art hair transplant clinic in Istanbul with a modern design and latest equipment. The interior design of Cinik Plaza is stylish and spacious, creating a friendly and bright atmosphere. Even though the clinic says, it has 28 operating theatres; it only has one doctor meaning the number of operations done is still at a minimum.

The clinic boasts of two awards so far as indicated on their site—the Patient Service Award 2018 WhatClinic and 5-Star Treatment rating by WhatClinic. Emrah Cinik clinic will sometimes be referred to as a hospital which can be quite confusing, but more information about its other services isn’t available. In our opinion, Dr Cinik Clinic is only an advanced hair transplant facility.

Surgery & Doctor Involvement

5/5

Dr Emrah Cinik is the surgeon behind all operations in the clinic but is assisted by a professional and highly trained team. However, the package you choose will decide on the involvement of the doctor. Only exclusive packages will have Dr Cinik open your canals and also in case you would prefer needle-free anaesthesia; you have to pay an extra cost of €250.

Aftercare

0/5

Your first aftercare procedure is a thorough hair wash done before your transfer to the airport. During this session, Dr Emrah Cinik also gives you a demo on the post-surgery process, which includes medication advice, washing procedure and good daily practices. Some of the supplies that clients are provided with are a special foam spray, shampoo, a special hat and a sleeping pillow. Even though the clinic doesn’t offer a success guarantee, the aftercare measures in place aim to achieve the best final results.

Conclusion - We rate Emrah Cinik 2.5 out of 5

When compared to hair transplant costs across Europe, the rates at Emrah Cinik are cheaper. The clinic has five different packages based on the various techniques they use, and the sapphire package is the most expensive at €2.3 per graft, which is higher than the average cost in Turkey.

Emrah Cinik clinic has built its reputation around Dr Emrah solely and has provided little information about the support staff. For those packages where the doctor isn’t fully engaged, one is left wondering who exactly will take over the process? As for the operation, the clinic uses needle-free anaesthesia so you won’t be feeling any pain.

All in all, if you’re looking for a clinic that will offer you a great hair transplant experience, Emrah Cinik is a clinic you can consider. It has an ultra-modern facility and uses the latest techniques in all its procedures. Also, the choice of hotel is a luxurious one that you wouldn’t mind to extend your stay even after the procedure is done.
