Hair Transplant Technology

These are some of the technologies that we use in hair transplant surgery.


DHI-DR

DHI Hair Transplant

DHI-DR, is our technique that we believe is a significant improvement over the frequently used 'DHI in Turkey'.

When you have DHI in Turkey, your grafts are placed inside an implanter pen and then injected into your scalp by technicians, which means the recipient site incisions (cuts) and graft placement are simultaneously done by these technicians. However, the recipient incision making is the most important part of a hair transplant procedure, such that, the naturalness of the hairline, including the density, angles, direction and distribution are all decided during this phase, and it is with utmost importance that this part of the procedure is done by an experienced team in order to get the best results.

With DHI-DR, your recipient site incisions are done by our plastic surgeon, the only American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery (ABHRS) Certified Turkish plastic surgeon, Dr. Karadeniz (Dr. K), to ensure the best design and most natural result.


Platinum Blades

Platinum Blades

At AEK Hair Clinic, Dr. Karadeniz (Dr. K) prefers using 'platinum blades' to do recipient site incisions. Platinum blades are custom-made blades prepared during the surgery while measuring the size of each patients grafts.

Some clinics in Turkey use 'sapphire blades' in doing recipient site incisions. Sapphire blades are produced in a few different sizes and a fixed depth. However, follicular unit grafts are very variable in size and depth and sapphire blades do not allow for making the proper sized incisions in every patient.

At AEK Hair Clinic, Dr. Karadeniz (Dr. K) prefers using 'platinum blades' to do recipient site incisions. Platinum blades are custom-made blades prepared during the surgery while measuring the size of each patients grafts. Platinum blades allow for making incisions at the exact width and depth of each patients grafts.


Painless Neurovibration

Painless Neurovibration

At AEK Hair Clinic, we use the scientifically proven 'painless neurovibration' technique that makes the local anaesthetic application as comfortable as possible.

Some clinics in Turkey use an instrument called 'needle-free anaesthesia'. Although this sounds good, the pain is caused by the injection and not the needle itself. Besides, the instrument is unable to inject local anaesthetic at the desired surgical levels to complete a successful anaesthesia and clinics using this instrument feel obliged to follow with usual needle injections.

We use the scientifically proven 'painless neurovibration' technique that makes the local anaesthetic application as comfortable as possible. It is based on keeping the nerves occupied in transmitting vibration instead of pain which has proven to be very beneficial in minimising discomfort.


PRP Treatment

PRP Treatment

PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is provided as an optional treatment and always done using a professional centrifuge kit at AEK Hair Clinic.

PRP - Stem Cell Treatment, is a treatment frequently used to treat hair loss and in combination with a hair transplant. It is done by taking some blood from the patient, centrifuging it using a special kit, purifying a small amount of plasma that is rich of platelets and injecting it to the area that needs the treatment. Although it may have benefits in selected cases and when done properly, scientific studies have shown mixed results and there is no evidence that PRP is beneficial in treating male pattern baldness.

It is unfortunate that PRP is mostly used as a marketing strategy by clinics, aimed at either making extra money directly or by increasing hair transplant sales by offering PRP for free. Clinics that offer PRP for free mostly do fake PRP by injecting only water or injecting the blood without using a concentration kit. When the blood is centrifuged without using a special kit, the result is usually platelet poor plasma (PPP), which is harmful instead of being useful.

Custodiol Graftprotect

Custodiol Graftprotect

Follicular unit grafts experience a significant amount of metabolic stress during hair transplant procedures, due to staying outside of the body and being deprived of their blood flow. Keeping the grafts in ordinary saline solution, which is mostly used in other hair clinics, does not provide the necessary electrolytes and nutrients for optimal graft survival.

At AEK Hair Clinic, we use Custodiol Graftprotect solution, which has also been used to protect the heart, liver, kidney and pancreas during transplant procedures, to ensure that your grafts are safely transplanted.
