Medical tourism in Europe for a hair transplant

The 10 steps

1. Initial consultation (online, at a doctor's office)

  • Its purpose is to determine if I am a good candidate for a transplant, and how many grafts I need approximately
  • The clinics listed on are almost all able to provide me with an opinion online, in view of my photos
  • But I can also consult a dermatologist or a clinic specializing in hair transplants near my home (identify the type of alopecia, evaluate the donor area ..)


2. Budget, destination and cost estimate

  • I save an appropriate budget for a transplant in a clinic of excellence listed by, according to rates range, and according to the destination that I prefer
  • I request a quote from several clinics (with my user account) and compare them
  • I may ask for the help of to get quotes, or to choose from those I have received


3. Time for reflection

  • I take my time to think because there is never an emergency for a hair transplant
  • I take into consideration that I may need several transplants before achieving the desired result, especially if my baldness continues to evolve


4. Reservation of dates of intervention, down payment, air tickets

  • The selected clinic reserves dates for my transplant, sends me all the necessary instructions prior to my trip (send blood analysis results, take medecine)
  • I pay a deposit (credit card, bank transfer) to the clinic to block these dates, or I pay everything on site after sending a copy of my plane ticket to the clinic
  • I buy my plane ticket and I inform the clinic of my arrival time (if the clinic picks me up at the airport)


5. Medical Record

  • I complete the medical questionnaire of the clinic
  • I send blood test results (or it will be performed upon arrival)


6. Arrival at the airport and transfer to the hotel

If included in the services of the clinic, I am welcomed to the airport by a guide interpreter and a car takes me to the hotel.

7. Preoperative consultation

The doctor asks about my history of hair loss, performs the clinical examination of my hair, draws my hair line, takes blood for an analysis (and for a PRP treatment if included)

8. Surgery (FUE hair transplant)

  • I am given a local anesthesia (donor area, and then recipient area), a total or partial shaving of donor area or of the head is done, the doctor and assistants collect the grafts, which they then implant
  • I am served lunch after sampling and before implantation
  • I go back to the hotel where I take the prescribed medications


9. Postoperative Instructions, payment

  • The next day, at the clinic I am explained how to wash my hair at home, I am given a special pillow and medicines to take, and a spray with vitamins
  • The doctor checks that I can fly back safely
  • I pay the balance of the service, the invoice may in some cases be adjusted very exactly to the number of grafts actually implanted


10. Return, postoperative follow-up

  • I go home, and normally I do not need to come back a few months later for a check
  • If I have a problem, redness or pain, I call the doctor who grafted me, or I consult locally
