Mcan Health Turkey Hair Transplant Clinic Review Summary
MCAN Health Hair Transplant Clinic provides detailed information on the booking process before, during and after. With its clear website in the English language, it is very easy to understand and gain in-depth knowledge on basic information about hair loss, grafting, procedures, before and after care, and much more. To begin your hair transplant journey with MCAN Health Turkey, their convenient initial free consultation can be done either online or face to face where you’ll be asked questions about your hair loss and have an online physical examination. Afterward, the doctor will determine the best treatment plan and hairline design.
They provide a detailed list of the team including their names and positions, from doctors to nurses. The website indicates one MCAN doctor and five other contracted doctors and surgeons. The costing page shows the price in Euros and the inclusions of their four packages are indicated. It is very easy to choose among the four packages as it is listed side by side for you to compare each package.
The website only shows some information on the inclusions such as hotel accommodation, and number of nights. There is a video in the website showing one of their client’s journey, from the time he was picked up from the airport to the day of his transplant. However, for the detailed plan including the schedule of operation day are not indicated.
The clinic provides useful information on nutritional advice about do’s and don’ts as early as ten days before the operation. It also includes a face-to-face pre-operational consultation upon arriving to the clinic in Istanbul to check on the client’s preferences, making sure that both parties agree on the treatment and design before starting the operation. Lastly, it is not indicated in the website whether or not there is a free reschedule of booking.
Arrival & Accommodation
MCAN Health clinic scores a perfect five in Arrival & Accommodation. Having an English-speaking host makes it easier to communicate for clients. Not only that, they also have hosts who can speak German, Italian, Spanish, French, Dutch and Arabic for foreign nationals. You will also be greeted by their host with MCAN’s VIP cars upon arrival at the airport.
It is safe to say that you will have a comfortable and convenient stay in Istanbul for they provide a 4-star hotel for two nights or a 5-star hotel for three nights right in the city centre of Taksim. Transportation is not a problem for their four packages include airport transfers and transport between hotel and MCAN with their VIP cars. Their blood test is done before the operation, which means that there is no waiting on your operation day which can be long and stressful.
One thing to take note of is the hotel differences in their packages. Only one package, the Luxury Package, offers a standard 3-night stay in a 5-star hotel. Whereas their other three packages only includes a 2-night stay at a 4-star hotel, all of which is situated in the city centre with breakfast and wi-fi. It is preferable to choose a 3-night stay we think, so you have more time to recover before your flight.
MCAN Health is given a 2 out of 5 here. It claims to be supported by the Turkish Government and accredited by the Ministry of Health, but it does not show any certificate indicating an A-license from the Turkish Government. This is a downside on any institution providing surgery for it is a client’s basis whether they will have a safe and reliable operation. Moreover, it is not a regulated EU Accredited Private Hospital since it is only a clinic.
In terms of patient comfort, it is not stated whether there is lunch, bed or a special chair provided. Patients are allowed to listen to music or watch a movie, though it is not mentioned if they will provide this themselves. As for clothing, make sure your shirt has a wide collar or has buttons as it’s important to not apply any pressure to your implanted hair in the first few days after the operation.
Surgery & Doctor Involvement
The MCAN clinic doctor is Dr. Guzide Bayrak, a medical aesthetic expert since 2004 specializing in botox, filler and mesotherapy. The team comprises of two nurses and five other contracted doctors and surgeons, all of whom can speak the English language. Needle-free anesthesia is only offered in their Luxury Package which costs €2350.
MCAN Health offers post-treatment packages including neck pillow, shampoo, lotion, PRP, and headband. A neck pillow helps you to sleep in the first few days of recovery and prevent any damages. When the anesthesia wears off, painkillers will be prescribed by the doctor. Moreover, they will give you further instructions on post-operative care which is a standard protocol for most clinics. The clinic also guarantees more than 80% hair growth. According to ISHRS (International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery), 80% is the standard rate indicating a successful hair transplant.
Conclusion - MCAN Health Clinic Rating 3.3 out of 5
In conclusion, the MCAN Health rating is very good. Their booking process is easy and understandable. They give detailed step-by-step instructions from the first to the last parts of the procedure. The packages are detailed with the inclusions and cost. The 4 and 5-star hotel accommodation is also something to look forward to.
Although the hotel accommodation can be enticing, it is only offered in one package which is the Luxury Package. It would have been better if they added that feature in another package so that clients can have more options to choose from. Although the MCAN Health booking and accommodation is top-notch, their aftercare and facilities is not that impressive. They lack an A-license and it is not EU Accredited Private Hospital. Accreditations are very important when choosing a trustworthy institution.
As for the MCAN Health aftercare procedures and packages, they were honest with their percentage hair growth claiming only 80% hair growth post-surgery, which is a standard hair growth by ISHRS. They also have aftercare products that are standard, but it doesn’t say if the products will last for two months. Lastly, there were no financial aid in the treatment, whether you can pay by installments or just a one-time pay.
