In recent years, hair transplant technology has made tremendous leaps and bounds, particularly in the global hair transplant capital of Istanbul. However, as Turkey’s successes in medical tourism have grown, so has the proliferation of less admirable clinics who have sought to capitalise on the economic potential of this industry in recent years. This makes it difficult for overseas patients to choose the clinic that is best for them.
At SHIFT we believe that our unique approach makes us different. We stand by the values of honesty and transparency, and we feel that the experience and professionalism of our staff, combined with our commitment to providing high-quality patient care, and our more people-oriented approach, are what distinguish us from other hair transplant clinics in Istanbul.
Many hair transplant clinics in Turkey follow the low-cost, high-turnaround approach to attracting patients, aiming to compete primarily on volume and cost. At SHIFT we prefer to take a more ‘boutique’ approach, working with a smaller number of patients in order to ensure that each patient receives the best possible standards of quality, personalised care. We never see our patients as ‘numbers’ and we consistently go the extra mile to ensure that they are happy with both the experience and the results. We listen to our patients and provide them with the best possible course of treatment based on their expectations and our expert analysis of their situation.
This commitment to providing an optimal level of care continues even after our patients have left Turkey. We follow each patient’s journey through email or WhatsApp, continuing to provide them with guidance and to answer their questions long after they have returned to their home country.
At SHIFT we are proud to stand on the vanguard of hair transplant technology. Our highly-adaptable team is skilled in using the most cutting-edge technology in order to provide the best results for patients, and they are experienced in performing a variety of techniques in order to provide the best course of treatment for each individual. We keep up to date with the latest developments in the industry in order to better advise and guide our patients before, during and after their treatment.
Unlike many other clinics in Istanbul, our focus is uniquely on hair, beard and eyebrow transplantation. We choose to specialise in these areas, and these areas alone, because in doing so we are able to concentrate our energy on what we do best. We are proud to provide an extremely high level of expertise in this competitive yet very niche industry, and we feel that the quality of our patients’ results speaks for itself.
Unlike many less reputable clinics in Turkey, we stand by the values of honesty, transparency and accountability. We will always give patients a realistic picture of how we are able to help them, and we will never promise patients results that we are not able to deliver. We are consistently transparent in discussing the number of sessions that a patient is likely to need, and any possible limitations, before they begin their course of treatment. We are contactable at all times before, during and after a patient’s operation, and we provide a lifetime guarantee of quality because we are convinced that our patients will be delighted with their results.
We believe that our prices are very reasonable for the quality of service that we provide. While our aim is not to compete purely on price, we believe that our actual price to quality ratio is the best in Istanbul. In comparison with other European countries, hair transplantation procedures are very affordable in Turkey. We are happy to be able to provide our services to a global audience, and we feel our prices are extremely favourable for the quality of results that we achieve.
As well as our focus on medical and aesthetic excellence, we place a huge importance on ensuring that our patients have a pleasant and enjoyable stay in Istanbul. In addition to providing a comfortable transfer service, we work with a small, carefully-selected collection of centrally-located partner hotels, and we can also advise patients who are looking to do sightseeing in the city. We are pleased to answer our patients’ queries about the practical side of visiting Istanbul, and we work hard to ensure that their journey to Turkey is memorable for all the right reasons.
