A Holiday and a Hair Transplant - 30 Mar 2013
`thousands of visitors flock to Turkey not just for the sun, but for the surgery. Last year some 270,000 medical tourists came to have a variety of treatments, from moustache implants to more serious procedures, generating about $1 billion - a small but growing fraction of the money Turkey earns from tourism.

Fahad Ali, a 27-year old medical tourist from Britain, is prepared for hair transplant at a clinic of Esteworld, an aesthetic private hospital group, in Istanbul March 30, 2013. As it tries to boost tourism revenues and narrow its current account deficit, its main economic weakness, Turkey is on a mission to diversify away from the all-inclusive package tours to its sun-drenched Mediterranean shores which, local businesses complain, often do too little for the local economy. Of 37 million tourists visiting Turkey last year, about 270,000 came for surgical procedures from moustache implants to liposuction, generating $1 billion in revenues and representing a small but growing fraction of tourism receipts.
