Turkey is the number one destination in the world for having a hair transplant. It is estimated that there are over 1000 hair transplants performed in Turkey each day. However, this doesn't mean that all hair transplant clinics in Turkey offer a high quality service and that there is no need to do an in-depth research. We recommend that you read this overview explaining the hair transplant market before choosing your hair transplant clinic in Turkey.
Plastic surgery in Turkey, is an additional 6 years of surgical training over the 6 years of medical school and is the only field of medicine that provides in depth training in cosmetic surgery and tissue reconstruction using grafts. Dr. Ali Emre Karadeniz is the only ABHRS certified Turkish plastic surgeon in the world. Dr. K is also the only Turkish plastic surgeon in the world who has earned the FISHRS status.
We never use ‘freelance rotating technicians’ or technicians that learned what they do elsewhere, unlike most other hair transplant clinics in Turkey. The whole AEK Hair Transplants Team was directly trained by Dr. K and has not only provided consistently good results for years, but also has been making sure that the valuable donor area of each patient is protected for possible future sessions.
There are very few centers in Turkey that are exclusive for surgical hair loss treatments. AEK Hair Clinic was founded by plastic surgeon Dr. Ali Emre Karadeniz who has devoted all his attention to hair restoration surgery. We are able to deal with the most sophisticated hair loss patients who may require a combination of surgical techniques.
Dr. K believes that the fight against hair loss can not be done by providing just an ‘off-the-shelf hair transplant’; it requires philosophy. AEK’s hair transplant philosophy consists of understanding the progressive nature of hair loss, the management of donor hair capacity, a multi-staged hair transplant plan and design that produces the most natural result long term. It includes training of the surgical team who understand the tissue, in order to cause the least amount of tissue damage, the best healing and most natural results. Finally, all of these must be surrounded by an understanding of medical ethics.
FUE is the individual harvest of follicular unit grafts using a sharp metal tube called a 'punch'. Small punch holes are left behind at the donor area which heal on their own within a few days. The most important determinant of the quality of FUE is the training and surgical skills of the surgical team.FUE
FUT is based on removing a skin strip from the back of the head and the donor area closed with stitches. The skin strip is then cut into individual follicular unit grafts under microscopes which is a very sophisticated procedure. This is why AEK is the only clinic in Turkey that provides high quality FUT hair transplants.FUT
The FUT+FUE combination treatment is a very effective option when trying to maximize the yield of donor hair harvesting in a single visit while causing the least amount of tissue damage. It is also the most effective option in repair cases where prior surgeries have exhausted donor resources and caused scarring.FUT+FUE
