The desire to keep youth and beauty is natural to a human. While the loss of hair — their symbol and attribute — appears to be a real disaster.

And when traditional methods for hair recovery don’t work, people start looking for something new. That’s how hair transplant popularity has been dramatically raising for the last few years. That’s why thousands of men and women worldwide visit the Republic of Korea (ROK) to get hair transplantation.

According to Bookimed, a medical centers aggregator website, the cost of hair transplant in South Korean best medical centers starts from $6,300. If to compare the prices with some other countries like Turkey, the costs estimates in South Korean clinics are a little bit higher. So what are people paying for?

  • Clinics specializing in plastic surgery and hair loss/alopecia treatment provide patients with up to 100% success rate guarantee. South Korean clinics have international certificates and are under the strict supervision of the ROK Ministry of Health and Welfare.
  • Innovations. The future, represented by robots, stem cells therapies and latest approached in hair transplant, i.e., FUE (mechanical or hand follicular unit extractions), slit and other techniques, is available here.
  • Comfort. To international patients, clinics offer transfer from the airport and back, accommodations, and language assistance if required.

This technique is considered the most popular with patients. A hair transplantologist applies a special tool which takes a graft out the donor’s area with rotating. The method allows getting grafts of high-quality and requires vast experience from a specialist. After the transplant, small traces are hardly visible on the donor’s area.
