DHI hair transplantation is a hair transplantation technique that doesn’t involve any cut, wound or sewing. Acronym for Direct Hair Implant, DHI hair transplant is the direct transplantation of follicles with a special implant pen called choi, as it can be understood from its name. This procedure is completely free of any ache or pain.
During our lives, sometimes we get sick and use medicine. As a side effect of the medication we take or medicine we use, we can suffer hair loss. Not only as a side effect of medication, but we can only face hair loss as a result of our genetic background. For all these reasons, DHI hair transplantation can be successfully applied to the patients.
Our doctors will examine you once you apply to our hospital. During these examinations, your hair will be analyzed with the latest technology equipment and machinery. After the necessary tests are done and with the approval of our local anesthesia expert, our doctors will describe the transplantation procedure in detail, if there isn’t any other condition that might prevent the operation.
DHI hair transplantation technique is slightly different than other methods. Generally, the follicles and density of the back of your head (the nape) are taken into account. The region where the transplantation will be made to is designated. One of the most important things at this point is make the drawing perfect to close the openings on the temporal side. Such regions are identified and the number of follicles that will be used for transplantation is calculated. Once everything is set, DHI hair transplantation procedure can be applied easily.
During the procedure, no incisions are made. With DHI hair transplantation method, all the follicles are extracted one by one with implant pens and directly transplanted to the target region. The follicle is placed easily within the scalp thanks to the thin tip of the pen. The follicles that are extracted as grafts during the FUE hair transplantation method are extracted one by one during the DHI hair transplantation method. Compared to other methods, the procedure is shorter. Since the follicles are transplanted faster, the quality of the transplanted follicle will be better.
During DHI hair transplantation procedure, special attention must be shown about the hair line, growing direction and angles when transplanting the follicles. Because of that, our doctors show great care for each follicle during the operation.
Hair transplantation is usually done with the follicles taken from the back of the head. But thanks to the DHI hair transplantation method, if the donor follicles in this region are not enough, then follicles from the chest can be taken as well. Another advantage of this method it can be applied quite easily to both patients with partially missing hair or sparse hair, not only patients with lost hair. Other methods involve incisions, but this method doesn’t involve any incision, so pen can be used to transplant follicles between the existing hair with ease.
DHI hair transplantation method can be used for beard and moustache transplantation as well. Since there isn’t any incision or sewing, patients heal faster. With the DHI method, you don’t need to wait for 3 days to wash your head. You can start washing your head immediately the day after the operation.
Hair loss will happen approximately after 2 weeks after the operation. Even though majority of your hair will grow back to full strength after 6 months, you will achieve perfect results within a year.
