Dr. Tugrul Maral

Dr. Maral in unprofessional and the worst hair transplant surgeon

What can I say? I am fuming while I write this report. It was nothing less than a disaster experience. It all started with a call. A call that I made to their clinic, a month back. After talking to a friend, I decided to go for a transplant. He suggested that I should check for someone out of the USA as the prices were too high. I took that advice and started checking few names.

I would rather say that he got lucky. With this I mean, I was looking for another doctor that I was referred to. But, when I tried to call him, his number did not connect, and I had few on my list that I searched from internet.

His number got through in the first attempt and I was connected to the receptionist. She was charming with her words and was able to speak fluent English. This made our conversation easy. She told that she would be mailing all the details about the transplant and charges to get me going. She sent a link with previous cases as well and they were fantastic. What else did I need?

So, I booked the first appointment that was available with Dr. Tugrul Maral. It was a month later. So, I did all the bookings and applied for the VISA and all necessary things that I was required to. After a week, I got a call from the lady and she said that she wanted to reschedule the appointment as something came up. I had to make arrangements and lose some more money to change the booking dates. But, I did it. I was looking forward to the transplant. So, the date arrived and as per the flight timing, I checked in to the airport and left for Turkey.

The place was beautiful, and it was the time for festival, Ramadan. So, everything was expensive including the cab fares and hotel charges. If I had been here as per the previous booking, I would have saved a lot. Anyway, I arrived at the hotel in the evening and my first appointment was planned for the next day.

I was tired and slept early. When I reached the clinic, I was welcomed by the lady I spoke with. She directed me towards the room where Dr. Maral checked patients. I was nervous and the way Dr. Maral spoke with me, it made me feel even worse. He is not friendly at all and likes ignoring questions. He drew my hairline and without consulting me, he asked his assistant to get me ready for the blood tests and other procedures. I looked at him clueless and he sensed my confusion. To this, he said just few words, you are in good hands.

I was taken through different rooms for ECG and other checkups. Most of the equipment seemed old and broken. The clinic was not cleaned since months, I could tell that with the smell.
After the basics, I was introduced to the anaesthetist. He was young and at least was talking. I asked if it would be a lot painful. He said, it wouldn’t. That was a relief. He said that I would feel only two three pricks at start. But, he was wrong. I cannot say the way he handled me. And, dr. Maral was doing it alone. I had to go through 5800 grafts and the way he was moving, it took him life time to complete the grafts.

In between, I asked if he can accelerate the process with his assistant. But, as usual, he looked at me and did not say anything. I took that as NO. After the transplant, I reached hotel. The redness was for more than a week. I had pain too. Dr. Maral did not bother about attending me. I was given some instructions. And, their responsibility ended. I had to consult a doctor after returning. The worst part is, I did not like my hairline. It is awful. Anyone can make out that I underwent HT. I had the worst experience with dr. Tugrul Maral. Never opt for his services.

  1. This is incorrect

    I did HT with Dr Maral on first week of November 2018. I don’t think this article represents Dr Maral. I was Norwood scale 7. He did fairly good job. He doesn’t deserve to be called. I thought he was fairly good.


    I am representetive of Dr. Maral, Maral Hair Klinik in Istanbul Turkey,

    Related the above review posted by Thomas :



    1- Maybe Thomas had such an experience in another clinic but confused/forgot the name of the clinic and made a mistake now
    2- Or this fake review is written by any of a hater or competetive clinic just midslunging us.



    1- He say he paid 9000 USD
    REALITY: Our price is constant and fixed to 2100 euro or equivalent USD, which was maximum 2400-2500 USD for years depending euro/USD exchange rates. It has been written by hundreds of patients in real forums for years.

    2. He say we transplanted 5800 grafts in one session.
    REALITY: We never did such high graft numbers in any patient. Thats impossible donors can give 5800 grafts without damage the donors.

    3- He say, Dr. Maral did surgery alone.

    REALITY: Dr. Maral only supervise hair transplant operations in his clinic and technician teams which consist 10 experienced technicians and nurses do the operations. For one surgery mimimum 3 of hair transplant technicians works at the same time under full time supervision of Dr. Maral. Its impossible one person transplants 5800 grafts in one transplant settings.

    4. He say, he had blood anylysess ECG monitoring etc.
    REALITY: HAir transplant operations is so minor procedures to be done under local anesthesia, we do not need to use blood anylyses or any analyses and even do not have such equipment in the clinic.

    5. All other insults and lies about our clinic.
    REALITY: We are doing hair transplant operations for the last 15 years and our patients comes from all over the world for years. May of them come with referrals from other patients and many patients come for their 2nd or even 3rd hair transplant sessions.

    We keep our business open fpr years and provides high standarts. All the bad words are belong to their owners. This is the fact.

    Its time Thomas make it clear who he is and what is his motive. We send a mail to forum moderators but no reply yet.
