Why is Iran a good destination for hair transplant?

Hair transplant surgery is a common cosmetic procedure in Iran. With highly-experienced surgeons and modern beauty clinics, Iran offers foreign candidates a very safe experience of hair transplant.

The low cost of hair transplant in Iran serves as another strong motive, enticing candidates to choose Iran as their destination. As is the case with other cosmetic surgeries, the cost of hair transplant compared to other countries is considerably more reasonable.

Plus, the results of hair restoration surgery in Iran are reported to bring a very high level of success and satisfaction for patients. A study on the success rate of hair transplant in Iran indicates that this surgery offers a high rate of success with the least possible side effects. The satisfaction level in 60% of patients was excellent and in 40% was good. So, it would be fair if we claim that Iran is a highly successful country in providing quality and affordable hair transplant services.

Hair transplant surgeons in Iran

Just like other cosmetic/medical procedures, Iran’s becoming a household name in hair transplant. The country embraces a society of highly-skilled and board-certified surgeons in this field. Having graduated from top-rated universities, Iranian surgeons have completed their fellowships in hair transplant in Europe and the United States.

Studies show that in Iran three out of five men go bald before the age of 50. Accordingly, the number of candidates and those who undergo this surgery is on the rise. The more procedures surgeons perform, the better their surgery results are. As a result, this has brought more proficiency for Iranian surgeons in this field. These surgeons are, hence, able to anticipate all the complications that may arise before the surgery. And, this would guarantee the patient’s treatment success.

Hair transplant cost in Iran

The cost of a hair transplant procedure in Iran is one of the lowest, if not the lowest, in the world among countries offering high-quality procedures as well as other medical tourism services. A hair transplant in Iran costs from $700 to $1,200. However, the same procedure in the United States and Europe costs much higher, from $4,000 to $16,000.

Iran beats other Asian countries like Turkey, India, and Thailand in terms of price, as it offers more affordable prices in hair restoration surgery. A hair transplant operation in Turkey costs around $2,000, and the same procedure costs around $3,000 in India and Thailand.

How is hair transplant performed in Iran?

Hair transplant procedure involves two parts:

  1. Removing hair-bearing tissues or hair grafts from one part of the scalp (donor site)
  2. Transplanting them to another part (balding/recipient area)

In Iran, the procedure is now more advanced than ever. Iranian hair transplant surgeons adopt the latest methods and technologies to help you get through it easily. The surgery is performed in a modern clinic under local anesthesia. The procedure takes about 8 hours, while the healing process takes at most 3-4 days. The first hints of your treatment would be visible after around 4 months, while the full results would be apparent after 8-12 months.

Moreover, Iran is a country offering all the techniques of hair loss treatment available in the world. There are four main techniques for performing this surgery. They include Follicular Isolation Technique (FIT), Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) also known as FUSS, and a combination of FIT and FUT. The latter is used in patients with extensive baldness, as in this method, more grafts are implanted on the scalp compared to other techniques.

Hair transplant for women

Unlike what is expected by most people, women are, of course, candidates for hair transplant. According to the American Association of Dermatologists, hair loss for women is common. Women usually deal with two types of hair loss. One is receded hairline and the other is female pattern baldness. The former occurs in both men and women and can be treated with hairline lowering. In this case, the surgeon transplants hair follicles taken from hair bank to the front of patient’s hair to repair the thin or receded hairline.

When hair loss pattern is not distinct and there’s a thinning/balding in all areas of the head, it may be due to female pattern baldness. In this case, a hair transplant may not always be appropriate for women and other methods like Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and mesotherapy will do a far better job. PRP involves injecting rich platelets into the recipient area, after centrifuging the patient’s own blood for about 10 minutes. This stimulates hair follicles, thickens thin hair, increases hair volume, and promotes new hair growth. Mesotherapy is another method which triggers hair growth through injecting nutrients’ boosters into the scalp.

Facial hair transplant in Iran (beard transplant)

Today, there is a significant increase in the number of men who choose a beard or mustache transplant. They seek beard or mustache transplant to restore hair in areas of the face with no or thin hair. Facial hair transplant procedure is similar to a regular hair transplant. Both FUT and FUE techniques can be applied in beard or mustache transplant. The procedure requires great preciseness because hair grafts need to be transplanted with the right growth direction so that the results look more natural and less artificial. To learn more about this procedure, go to beard transplant in Iran (facial hair transplant).
