Dr Kaan Pekiner

Meet Dr. Kaan Pekiner, an esteemed expert in FUE hair transplantation hailing from Turkey. His roots trace back to Ankara in 1982, where he completed both primary and secondary schooling. After graduating from Gulhane’s Military Medicine Academy in 2006, he served as a military physician in the Turkish army for three years. Following this, he shifted his focus towards hair transplantation and gained experience in some of the top Turkish clinics. His expertise in manual FUE technique continued to improve as he worked as an assistant doctor at Dr. Keser’s clinic in 2010 and 2011. Dr. Pekiner’s dedication to perfecting his skills in hair transplantation is evident in his impressive credentials and track record of successful procedures.

Meet Dr. Pekiner, a skilled surgeon who has been a vital part of Ankara’s HairLine Clinic team since 2011. His proficiency in performing over 500 FUE surgeries has led to his significant reputation in the field of hair transplantation. Dr. Pekiner’s hands-on experience and dedication to his craft prompted him to establish his clinic in 2017. He has since successfully managed his clinic while continuing to deliver excellent results to his patients.

Dr. Kaan Pekiner, an esteemed member of the ISHRS, presented at the 2016 Las Vegas’ annual ISHRS congress. He carried out a conferea symposium on the manual FUE technique, aimed at educating attendees on the latest developments in hair restoration surgery. Moreover, he participated in an FUE affair set up by the Europe Organization (of FUE) in Brussels, where he demonstrated his expertise by performing live surgery for rookie doctors. The event’s focus was transplanting grafts taken out from the beard with the manual FUE procedure. To remain updated with the latest advancements in the field, Dr. Pekiner attends various congresses and meetings on FUE, including FUE Europe, World FUE Institute, and the ISHRS on an annual basis. His commitment to staying informed ensures that he provides his patients with the best possible care.

In the world of hair transplant, Dr. Kaan advocates for a manual Follicular Unit Extraction method. This approach entails using a unique punch for extractions with a diameter that varies from case to case, ranging between 0.6 to 0.9 mm. Dr. Kaan also utilises a fine needle to make incisions and grafts. On the other hand, Dr. Pekiner prefers a “stick and place” method, where the hair is immediately grafted into the skin after an incision. This method ensures minimal bleeding and smaller incisions. Dr. Pekiner is actively involved in every aspect of the transplant process, overseeing all the phases. Although the nurses, technicians, and assistants take up secondary roles such as organising the extracted grafts or taking care of Petri dishes, Dr. Pekiner is still very much involved in every stage of the procedure.

In the realm of hair transplantation, the number of grafts a surgeon can transplant in a day can fluctuate depending on various factors, such as the patient’s unique characteristics or the kind of transplant required. In Dr. Kaan Pekiner’s case, he can perform around 1500 grafts per day. To give each patient his complete attention and care, he only performs one surgery per day.

Dr. Pekiner has gained a stellar reputation for his expertise and knowledge in manual FUE, thanks to his exceptional results and patient-oriented approach. He views hair transplantation as more than just a medical procedure but an art form that demands great attention to detail, talent, and mastery. He is dedicated to providing his patients with luxurious care, continuously refining his procedures and methods to achieve the best achievable results.
