Men who spend thousands of dollars for a hair transplant

The Englishman Paul Readman wanted to fulfill a dream for a long time: to populate what had once been his thick hair.

However, the cost of a hair transplant in the United Kingdom is about US $ 8,000, a figure that was not affordable.

So he decided to pack and fly to Istanbul, the capital of Turkey and the hair transplants.

In the city of Bosphorus there are at least 300 specialized clinics that perform between 150-500 hair transplants each week.

It is estimated that every year at least 60,000 men such as Paul travel to Istanbul to undergo such an operation, which costs between US $ 600 and US $ 2,000.
