You’ve probably heard of medical tourism—going abroad for medical procedures—or dental tourism—doing the same thing for dental care. But now there’s something called “transplant tourism.”
There’s medical tourism and dental tourism, but here’s a new one: transplant tourism.
Before you start thinking they’re pushing the envelope too far, the transplants aren’t for organs . . . they’re for hair.
An eight-day package is recommended, with the operation on the first day and follow-up a week later.
The procedure is suitable for tourism, the companies say, because hair transplants rarely require follow-up care.
Plus, with mild anesthesia used and minimal recovery time, it’s still possible to actually vacation a little.
Typical hair-transplant surgery, performed by certified plastic surgeons, takes three to four hours and between $2,000 and $4,000, roughly a third of U.S. prices.
