Why Men Everywhere Are Going to Istanbul for Hair Transplants
(Bloomberg) -- Every year, hundreds of thousands of men pack their bags and fly to Turkey because they desperately want to get their hair back.
The nation’s hair treatment industry, centered on Istanbul, is worth more than $1 billion. But the clinics that provide such services are lightly regulated, and often it is the technicians rather than the doctors who do most of the work. As the sector expands, some experts both in and out of Turkey are wondering whether profit is being prioritized over patients.
