Now Hair Time Istanbul Hair Transplant Review Summary
The Now Hair Time Istanbul website is informative and a great resource for help and advice for those considering the procedure. Their detailed blog covers many of the most common questions, and the services page includes thorough overviews of the procedures offered. The booking process at Now Hair Time Turkey is a drawback, as there is no clear indication of price, and they encourage contacting them to find out more about price ranges. This could be a real waste of time if the hair transplant is considerably out of budget.
There is also a distinct lack of customer reviews on their website, albeit there are a few before and after examples. Before even considering a hair transplant or anything of the sort, it’s only natural to expect reviews, which go far beyond the clinic itself talking about how great its work is.
There are two options to choose from when it comes to your hair transplant. You can select either the normal or the touristic package, with the latter including sightseeing. It isn’t made very clear as to what the actual pre-transplant care involves, or the level of service you can expect to receive. There’s a lot of information about hair transplants in Turkey, but not specifically about having one at their clinic.
It is hard to understand whether the ambiguity is purposeful to drive more enquiries, or whether it has just been overlooked. Either way, for an aesthetic procedure, there’s a real lack of guidance on the website as to what to expect before your appointment or before travelling to Turkey. It is understandable to feel nervous about this approach.
Arrival & Accommodation
The good news is that Now Hair Time offer a VIP experience for clients upon arriving in Turkey, from 5-star hotels, transportation to and from the airport, as well as between appointments, all included as standard.
Both packages on offer include medicines, lotions and shampoos to ensure a smooth recovery process, and thankfully there aren’t many optional extras that you would need to pay for. If you opt for the Touristic package you can enjoy sightseeing which includes Galata Tower, Sultan Ahmet and many other highlights – this is a great perk if you wish to make the most of your visit.
In a nutshell, everything from arrival is taken care of and is done so in style, with no expenses spared when it comes to comfort and service. The inclusion of all pre and after-care medication will reduce costs and means there’ll be no surprises on the bill after your procedure. But again, we come back to the fact that it would be great to have an indication of the costs before enquiring.
Now Hair Time perform their procedures in a clean and professional hospital environment under the supervision of a medical doctor. That said, they are a hair transplant clinic and not a hospital or medical centre, so their expertise are aesthetics, not medicine. At the centre of their satisfaction promise is comfort, promising the best quality accommodation in and outside of the clinic.
The website explains that the latest technology, equipment and processes are used at Now Hair Time Istanbul, but there’s a distinct lack of pictures or intricate details. Without this, it is hard to score the clinic for its facilities or environment, as you’re essentially left to make your mind up when you arrive.
Surgery & Doctor Involvement
Each procedure is carried out in a high-end clinic and overseen by Dr. Bahadır Imer, a real pioneer in the field, being one of the first to perform a hair transplant in Turkey. This ensures that the procedure is done to the best quality and you can guarantee that you’re in good hands. The lifelong medical support and 100% satisfaction guarantee are two of the best perks, also included in the price.
Now Hair Time do a fantastic job of selling their clinic and their emphasis on comfort and luxury, but there’s very little said about aftercare. It’s clear that there’s ongoing medical care and some post-op products, but there’s no specifics about what to actually expect when the procedure is done. With this, there’s also a lack of financing options mentioned, leaving us wondering how and when we have to pay, as well as exactly how much extra aftercare may cost.
Conclusion - We rate Now Hair Time 3 out of 5
The Now Hair Time clinic in Istanbul may have one of the most sought after hair transplant doctors and innovative technology, but they don’t do a particularly good job of selling it on their website. You’re left wondering what it will cost, how you will pay, and many other questions.
We would also love to see more real-life case studies, reviews and examples from Now Hair Time, so that we can actually see the results instead of just hearing about them. The emphasis on a VIP experience is a nice touch, but shouldn’t be the only priority for paying customers.
The presence of Dr. Bahadır İmer is definitely one of the biggest appeals to Now Hair Time, and perhaps is what sets them apart from other hair transplant clinics in the country. Although your procedure won’t be carried out by him, having him oversee it guarantees a job well done.

Now Hair Time Istanbul and Dr. Bahadır Imer
The team at Now Hair Time consists of Health Coordinators, General Coordinators and Patient Relations Coordinators. At the centre of the entire operation is Dr. Bahadır Imer M.D, who graduated from the Cerrahpaşa School of Medicine and went on begin his plastic surgery career in 2002 at Çamlıca Medicana Hospital. His impressive CV includes extensive experience in rhinoplasty and facial rejuvenation, but perhaps most impressive is his involvement in hair transplantation in Turkey from as early as 1999.
Dr. Bahadır Imer M.D now performs no-shave hair transplants and specialises in hair restoration for burn victims and incision scars, and he truly is one of the most experienced in his field in Tukey. The Now Hair Time website fails to provide any information on the nursing, support or care teams, which is a real shame as these members of staff with also play an important part in your pre and post-procedure care. One thing that’s certain though, is that you’re in good hands with a team of experienced hair transplant specialists.
Now Hair Time Results And Before and After Pictures
The clinic has a great video on their website which displays a number of transformative before and after shots of patients who have had the hair transplant procedure. Despite the results being very impressive, there is no other information on each case and no indication of how recent the procedures are. This has an impact of the overall score for the Now Hair Time review.
