A Proven Record of Quality
Winner of the 2019 European Awards in Medicine for “Hair Transplantation”, Dr Serkan Aygin was part of the very first medical team to perform hair transplants in Turkey. The year 2021 marks the 25th anniversary of Dr Aygin’s renowned, pioneering career.
The Dr Serkan Aygin Clinic has performed hair transplants on thousands of men and women from around the world in the heart of Istanbul. In 2019, the Dr Serkan Aygin Clinic was named the “Best Medical Tourism Facility” at the 8th Health Tourism Awards organised by La Razon in Spain.
Over the last several years, Turkey has cemented its reputation as a global leader in the field of medical tourism. This is due to the industry-leading experts, state-of-the-art medical technology, and extremely affordable costs available in Turkey. Patients from around the world flock to Turkey to receive a hair transplant at the Dr Serkan Aygin Clinic; we have assisted more than 10,000 clients with hair restoration treatments.
Dr Serkan Aygin began practising in 1996 and eventually founded the Dr Serkan Aygin Clinic in 2013. Our clinic boasts one of the top hair transplant teams anywhere in the world. Every member of our team has been personally trained by Dr Serkan Aygin himself and undergoes continuous training to keep up with the newest developments in the field. We have a hair regrowth rate of over 98% across our more than 10,000 satisfied clients.
The Most Modern Hair Transplant Techniques
At the Dr Serkan Aygin Clinic, we strive to continually improve our technology and practises. As a result, we utilise only the most cutting-edge hair transplantation techniques. We specialise in both the Sapphire FUE and DHI techniques, as well as several follow-up care techniques to ensure top-quality results.
Sapphire FUE Hair Transplants
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is a hair transplant technique in which individual hair follicles are extracted from a donor area, typically at the back of the head, with the assistance of a micro-motor and briefly stored in a special, nutrient-rich solution before being implanted into the recipient area. A FUE hair transplant has traditionally been performed with a conventional steel blade, however, Dr Aygin has pioneered the use of Sapphire blades during the FUE procedure. The use of Sapphire blades allows for much finer incisions which, in turn, offers several distinct advantages.
- Greatly reduced risk of bleeding, scabbing, or scarring.
- Denser implantation into the recipient area which creates a much fuller, more natural-looking final result.
- Faster postoperative recovery.
- Hair follicle survival rate of 98%.
DHI Hair Transplants
Direct Hair Implantation (DHI, also known as the Choi Technique) is a variant of the FUE technique. During a DHI hair transplant, the hair follicles are extracted and immediately implanted into the recipient area with the use of a Choi Implanter Pen, removing the need for incisions in the scalp. This allows for more precise placement of the transplanted hair, ensuring it matches the angle and direction of the existing hair growth. Additional benefits of a DHI hair transplant include:
- Faster postoperative recovery
- An increased hair survival rate
- Reduced stress on the transplanted hair
- No need to shave in advance, making it an ideal choice for clients with longer hair
Which course of treatment is best depends on the needs of each patient, but no matter what, all of our clients receive a full suite of follow-up care. The day following the procedure, all patients are invited back to the clinic for Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy and/or LLLT laser hair treatment, as well as all required literature and medications for proper postoperative hair care. All of these services are offered as a part of our all-inclusive hair transplant package. Our attention to our clients doesn’t end when they leave our clinic.
