The UK government has warned against medical travel to Turkey after 17 British nationals have died following treatment in Turkey in recent years. The advice from the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) urges UK citizens looking to travel to Turkey for medical treatment, elective surgery and dental procedures to undertake detailed research before travelling. 

About Turkey’s medical travel sector, the FCDO states: 

It is unwise to rely upon private companies that have a financial interest in arranging your medical treatment abroad. We are aware of 17 British nationals who have died in Turkey since January 2019 following medical tourism visits. 

If you are travelling to Turkey to undertake a medical procedure you should ensure that your chosen medical facility is accredited with the Turkish authorities. 

The British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons consistently advises against travelling abroad for any kind of surgery, not just cosmetic. They counsel that all surgical procedures carry risks, even when performed by a reputable surgeon in the UK.

Transplantation with the Direct FUE Method  

At Seneca they are especially proud of developing the Direct FUE method. An evolution of the “traditional” FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) method.

In the traditional FUE technique, the hair follicles are implanted creating holes-force ups in the receiving area and placed with forceps, allowing little control in handling. This leads to a greater injury of the recipient area, a greater chance of abuse of the hair follicles but also to a rather abnormal result.

In contrast, with the Direct FUE, each hair follicle is placed separately and directly on the affected area with the Implanter, a specially designed tool that allows the doctor to control the depth, direction and angle of placement of each implant.

Glasgow Times:

SENECA Direct FUE hair transplantation technique uses hair follicles, which are extracted from the back of the head, donor area, and implanted directly to the affected area. The entire procedure is performed only by doctors trained and certified by Seneca Training & Research Centre, and under strict Seneca Quality Standardization Protocols, to ensure great results every time. During the implantation phase they use the Implanter, a specially designed tool which allows a full control of the depth, direction, and angle of placement of each hair follicle.  After the placement, the hair follicles follow their normal course of life and grow naturally.

"The transplanted hairs continue to grow for a lifetime and do not fall out, providing an 100% natural result," according to the team at Seneca.
