Techniques and Applications of Hair Transplantation in Hair Diseases
Ekrem Civas MD. Hair Disorders
Abstract: Hair transplantation is one of the most complex esthetic surgical procedures. It is the only alternative method to recover the hair loss in some hair diseases including genetic hair loss or cicatricial alopecia. It is possible to achieve almost fully natural results by the way of the transplantation of the follicular unit, which is the modern hair surgery procedure. Follicular unite extraction technique has become popular in the last 10 years, and indications of FUE are increasing day by day due to the fact that there is no linear scar remaining in the donor area and hair from different body parts such as the beard and chest can be used as donor sites.

Ekrem Civas MD, Berna Aksoy MD, Berna, Barıs Surucu MD, Erol Koç MD, Hasan Mete Aksoy MD. Photomedicine and laser surgery 2010;28(5)
Abstract: Three dimensional (3D) skin rejuvenation is proposed to be effective for all skin layers. The aim of this concept is to treat sun spots with broad-band pulse light; large pores, fine lines and vascular lesions with a long-pulsed 1064 nm neodymium-yttrium-aluminum-garnet (Nd:YAG) laser system and skin ptosis and laxity with a 1100-1800 nm infrared light source. In this study, 46 patients treated with the 3D skin rejuvenation procedure were retrospectively evaluated to assess the effectiveness of the 3D procedure according to both patient and doctor satisfaction. All of our patients showed improvement. Female patients were more satisfied than male patients. Patient and doctor satisfaction scores were generally correlated. Our clinical results indicate that the 3D procedure is an effective nonsurgical skin rejuvenation method.
Getting Hair Follicles by FUE Method
Ekrem Civas MD. Turkey Clinics Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology Special Topics 2010;3(4)
Follicular unit extraction is a method of hair transplantation by obtaining hair follicles from the donor area one by one in vivo without making a linear incision. The hair follicles are taken directly after the round incisions made around the follicular unit with small punches. The most important reason for the need for this method is that it does not leave a line-like scar on the neck and allows other alternative body parts to be used as donors (such as breast hair, beard hair).
Anesthesia in Hair Transplantation
Ekrem Civas MD. Turkey Clinics Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology Special Topics 2010;3(4)

Berna Aksoy MD, Hüseyin ÜSTÜN MD, Rukiye GÜLBAHÇE MD, Mahi Balci MD, Hasan M Aksoy MD, Ekrem CIVAŞ MD, Nilguen Atakan MD. The Journal of Dermatology 2009;36(11)
Abstract: Anetoderma, is characterized by herniated atrophic macules clinically and by decreased to absent dermal elastic fibers histopathologically. Atrophoderma elastolyticum discretum describes lesions that are reminiscent of atrophoderma clinically but they are compatible with anetoderma histopathologically. We described two cases which are interesting because they may represent a clinicopathological entity which has not been described before.

Abstract: Chronic wounds pose important problems in clinical practice and their treatment is difficult and costly. Here we describe a new delayed wound healing animal model. Fifteen male New Zealand rabbits were used in this study. İn our new model, addition of panniculectomy to full thickness burn injury significantly delayed wound healing with a decrease in scar quality. This is a simple, economic and effective animal model to study delayed wound healing.

Hasanmete Aksoy MD, Berna Aksoy MD, Ekrem Civaş MD, B Öç MD. European Journal of Plastic Surgery 2008;31(5)
Abstract: Onychogryposis refers to thickening, increase in length and curvature of the nail plate. Treatment is required for cosmetic reasons, functional problems caused by the long curved nail, and for complications such as subungual gangrene. Wire cutter and bone rongeur (surgical instruments used in orthopedic surgery) were found to be very suitable for nail debridement by the authors eliminating the need for electrical instruments.
