Sanamentum Review Summary

This review was originally published in January 2024. If you have any feedback about Sanamentum or want to talk to former patients of Sanamentum, post it in the Hair Back App.

Our Experience with Sanamentum: Step-by-Step

Sanamentum’s website is quite user-friendly, although not particularly impressive from a design perspective. Navigating the site is easy, thanks to its easy to use layout, ensuring an optimal accessibility. While the website clearly states what procedures are offered by Sanamentum, the absence of specific details about the surgical team raises initial concerns.

Sanamentum invites any potential clients to provide their information in order to obtain a personalized quote, underlining the importance of individual assessments for accurate pricing. This approach ensures that clients get a tailored package based on their individual needs. However, and despite general comparative pricing table present on the website, it must be noted that the information contained in it refers to general hair transplant prices in Turkey vs abroad. As such, the lack of clear pricing may leave potential patients in a state of uncertainty.
 

The clinic offers a contact form on their website where people can provide their name, email, and phone number for them to reach out. Additionally, they can be reached via WhatsApp chat and Instagram.

Booking Process

3.8 / 5

Sanamentum’s booking process seems simple and straightforward. By providing necessary details and photos, prospective patients start the customization of their hair transplant package. However, the absence of a predefined price list might very well be a point of contention for individuals seeking transparent cost information before committing to the procedure.

Pre-Operational Consultations

3.7 / 5

Before the actual procedure, Sanamentum guarantees that each patient undergoes comprehensive pre-operative consultations. These consultations are lead by highly experienced doctors who evaluate the patient’s hair loss condition, discuss the desired results, and create a personalized treatment plan for them.

Arrival & Accommodation

3.6 / 5

One of Sanamentum’s strong points lies in its packages, especially those that include flight tickets. Clients are assured of a comfortable stay in a 4-star hotel, with VIP transfers for a smooth experience. The inclusion of these amenities reflects the clinic’s commitment to providing a luxurious and stress-free environment for its patients.

However, the website doesn’t specify whether meals are included in these packages, which could be an important factor for clients planning their budget. 

Facility

3 / 5

Sanamentum demonstrates their commitment to patient comfort. However, I believe that there could be more details concerning the amenities, as there are no pictures of the clinic’s interior on their official website. Transparency regarding the comfort and facilities provided can play a crucial role in easing potential patients’ concerns.

According to the website, the hair transplant procedure usually lasts from 6 to 8 hours, a timeframe largely dependant on the number of grafts being transplanted.

Surgery & Doctor Involvement

3.6 / 5

Sanamentum provides an in-depth overview of the hair transplant procedures they offer, among which FUE and DHI. There is also detailed information about the leading surgeon’s qualifications and a user-friendly presentation of the specialist on their website. 

Aftercare

3.5 / 5

Sanamentum guarantees the provision of aftercare services as part of their packages, with mentions of shampoos and additional medications, however there is not much information on the specific components of their aftercare package. Clear communication about post-operative care, including the provision of aftercare products, and which products, as well as consultations, is essential for ensuring a smooth recovery process.

We Rate Sanamentum

3.5 / 5.0

Upon investigating Sanamentum’s TrustPilot and Google reviews, a slightly concerning pattern emerges. While most reviews are positive and 4 or 5-stars, there are alarming 1-star testimonials. Several clients reported misleading practices where they claim they were not informed on any additional/hidden costs related to their procedures, which lead them to paying much more than what they were initially told.

Sanamentum faces some serious criticism for its lack of transparency in regards to the total costs of their packages, which has lead to numerous former patients to feel mislead.

While Sanamentum demonstrates potential, the existing challenges in transparency and misleading practices must be addressed to ensure a positive and safe experience for all clients. Prospective patients are strongly urged to approach Sanamentum with skepticism, conduct comprehensive research, and consider the testimonials seriously before making any hasty decisions.

Engaging in open communication with Sanamentum and seeking detailed assurances regarding all aspects of the procedure and aftercare is of the essence in order to mitigate potential risks and ensure good results.

So far so good.

This is the second time I have had my hair done and after 6 months I’m very impressed with the results so far.

It’s a quarter of the price compared to UK and once you get to Istanbul, Sanamentum deal with everything.

If it is your first time getting this done then I would highly recommend this company.

Zero – Duty of care while your in Turkey

Livingstone Hotel – still under construction and location not tourist friendly (located down a alleyway)

£200 deposit does not cover any of the charges if they cancel your surgery. I paid £430 for test and 1 night stay in hotel. It’s been three weeks until I received my deposit back.

No Host on arrival or at Hospital it’s a 19 year old translator who works for multiple clinics. If stranded they don’t assist you at the airport they just drop you off, it was three days before the reached out to me.

Don’t have high expectations, the videos on YouTube don’t reflect how you will be looked after.

Hospital and surgeon great!

London office is a “we works” office and nobody at Sanamantum works weekends or answer their phones while you are in Turkey.

If you get stranded like we did I recommend The Dekalb Hotel the manager will look after you and the area is brilliant.

Make sure you down load Uber as your need it unless your willing to get ripped off my taxi drivers and restaurants if you remain at the Livingstone hotel.

From first contacting Sanamentum the sevice has been first class. The coordinators answered all my questions promptly and almost instantly even on a Sunday. I arrived at the airport and the transfer was waiting for me and friendly. The hotel was first class. I was given my full itinerary, explaining pick up times and the procedure. The hospital was spotless and modern. Massive shout out to my surgeon Dr Firat Siksik. He was like a breath of fresh air, so skilled and professional, the 2 nurses were also fantastic throughout. My follow up appointment was brilliant the next morning. I couldn’t possibly thank the amazing team at Sanamentum more. The UK can learn a lot from the work ethic and personality shown from all the staff in Istanbul. From the bottom of my heart thankyou, what an amazing experience. I can now live with confidence of having a full head of hair. The value for money for the services I received have left me speechless. I have refered 5 of my friends and colleagues already to Sanamentum and I will carry on singing your praises in the future. Thankyou.

Methods and Treatments

Sanamentum Hair Transplantation Methods And Treatments

The clinic specializes in FUT, Direct Hair Transplants (DHI) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) procedures, utilizing the advanced Sapphire FUE Transplant method.

In DHI (Direct Hair Implantation), a specialized tool, known as the Choi pen or implanter pen, is employed. This technique involves individually extracting hair follicles from the donor area, making it particularly advantageous for individuals in the early stages of hair loss seeking a protective solution through hair transplant surgery.

FUE Hair Transplant represents a minimally invasive approach aimed at achieving natural results. This technique involves densely implanting more hair, incorporating both single hair and multi-grafts. What sets the Sapphire method apart from standard FUE hair transplants is the use of a sapphire blade, proven to cause less tissue damage and facilitate faster healing.

Costs and Packages

Sanamentum hair transplant cost and price - What is included in the hair transplant package?

The total cost of the package is contingent upon the specific procedure chosen and the number of grafts to be transplanted. To receive a quotation for a hair transplant Turkey package from Sanamentum, prospective clients are required to furnish their details along with four head pictures. Following this, a consultant will craft a personalized package.

Typical inclusions in Sanamentum Turkey packages consist of:
