Medical Tourism - Hair Transplant In Greece


Medical Tourism – Hair Transplant In Greece

Medical tourism is affecting the number of people travelling to Greece. One of the reasons for medical tourism is to undergo a hair transplant in Greece. Greece is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe and worldwide. The country’s unique characteristics attract many new forms of tourism. As a result of medical tourism undergoing a hair transplant in Greece is becoming much more popular. Based on recent statistics, more than 10-15% of patients from the European Union seek health-care abroad. This percentage of medical tourism is growing year on year. Specifically the FUE hair transplant technique.

A hair transplant is a surgical medical procedure. Regardless of the technique used it requires surgical skills to perform to the highest standard. Along with the surgical skills a hair transplant needs an artistic bent to create a natural result.

Having trained other physicians to perform a hair transplant the artistic skills differ greatly. Whilst they all mainly grasp the medical requirements the understanding of the facial bone structure and hairline design often comes harder.
