DHİ hair transplant

DHİ stands for Direct Hair Implantation, a modern and minimally invasive hair restorationprocedure. It is an advanced form of the traditional FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) method, with the primary difference being the simultaneous extraction and implantation of hairfollicles using a specialized tool called a Choi pen.







Question - Answer


How does DHİ differ from FUE?

  • In a standard FUE procedure, hair follicles are extracted from the donor area (usually the backor sides of the scalp) and then implanted into the recipient area using a slotted implantationdevice. However, in DHİ, the Choi pen is used to both extract and implant hair folliclessimultaneously, minimizing the handling of grafts and reducing the time the grafts are outsidethe body. This can lead to a higher survival rate for the transplanted hair.

What are the benefits of DHİ?

  • DHİ offers several advantages over traditional hair transplant methods:

    1. Reduced trauma: Since the hair follicles are implanted immediately after extraction, there is minimal handling of the grafts, reducing the risk of damage to the follicles.
    2. Faster procedure: DHİ eliminates the need to create incisions before implantation, reducing the overall procedure time.
    3. Minimized scarring: The implantation process is performed with a needle-likeinstrument, which leads to smaller, less noticeable scars compared to traditional FUE techniques.
    4. Natural-looking results: The Choi pen allows for precise placement of the hairfollicles, resulting in a more natural-looking hairline.

Who is a good candidate for DHİ?

  • DHİ is suitable for most patients with hair loss, including those with a receding hairline, baldpatches, or overall thinning hair. However, it is essential to consult with a qualified hairtransplant surgeon to determine if DHİ is the right option for you. Factors such as the extentof hair loss, the quality of the donor area, and overall health will be considered.

What is the recovery process like?

  • The recovery process for DHİ is similar to other hair transplant methods. Patients mayexperience some discomfort, swelling, and bruising in the days following the procedure, which usually subsides within a week. The transplanted hair will shed within a few weeks but will gradually regrow over the following months. Most patients can return to work andnormal activities within a week or two.

Is DHİ permanent?

Yes, the results of DHİ are permanent. Once the transplanted hair follicles have established a blood supply and started to grow, they will continue to grow and behave like natural hair. It is important to note that DHİ does not prevent further hair loss in non-transplanted areas, soadditional procedures or maintenance may be required in the future.
