Barcelona is a travel friendly town for anyone wishing to get a hair transplant in a member country of the European Union, thus benefitting from the medical quality expected from EU standards.
The clinics there are known for their conservative approach to hair transplants, which guarantees very good results for patients.
Their technique is very meticulous, they take their time (manual or motorised punch for the FUE, implanters to place the grafts in DHI), preservation of each graft collected in the donor area.
If you reside close to Barcelona, or if you can easily travel to Spain, then you can have a consultation to assess which type of treatment for hair loss should be used according to your type of alopecia, then get the treatment at an affordable price, and benefit from a close post op follow up.
A prior dermatological check up is important to determine the causes of your hair loss, in order to prescribe the appropriate medication, which is usually Minoxidil or Finasteride, but various other drugs also. This primary consultation in person can be more difficult when dealing with clinics in Istanbul because of the distance.
Compared to Turkey, prices in Barcelona can come quite close, without requiring you to travel to a non European country, where clinics might not always meet EU requirements and standards for cosmetic surgery.
Traveling to a country like Spain for your hair transplant, and to a very accessible place like Barcelona, is a great choice, thanks to its reputable doctors, and to some prices close to Turkey's. In addition, enjoying a trip to a very popular country like Spain, and visiting the touristic city of Barcelona, are a good alternative to Istanbul Turkey.
Among the different techniques of hair grafting, the FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) method is one of the most demanded and accepted by patients, since it is a procedure with numerous benefits that can also apply to facial hair transplant such as beard hair transplant or eyebrows hair transplant.
This procedure is carried out under local anesthesia and is mainly characterized by individually harvesting the follicles from the donor area (usually from the nape), using a millimeter precision tool. One of its most outstanding advantages is that it is a non invasive surgery (contrary to the FUT technique), which does not leave visible scars. On the other hand, one of its disadvantages would be the need to shave the donor area to facilitate the extraction of the hair.
A variant of the FUE technique is the robotic ARTAS, to facilitate and accelerate the task of harvesting the follicular units, but it is not very common in Spain.
Many international celebrities have popularised the FUE technique for hair restoration, such as Lebron James hair transplant, Jude Law hair transplant, Tom Brady hair transplant, Wayne Rooney hair transplant, Jamie Foxx hair transplant, Joe Biden hair transplant.
This technique works with various types of hair, such as Afro Caribbean hair.
