What is DHI Hair Transplant?

DHI is the abbreviation of Direct Hair Implant. This method is not different from FUE method. This is an advanced method. This method requires Choi pens for implementation process.

In DHI hair transplant hair roots are harvested by a special method. It is a method that does not require suture and incision. In this way, wound formation is prevented in the harvesting area.

The necessity of the DHI hair transplant method is the use of a special pen. This pen also called “implanter”. This method provides the best solution without using a scalpel.

How the process Works?

In DHI method the grafts are usually harvested one by one. Because of that the harvesting process is a little bit longer than FUE. As a result of the harvesting process, the existing hair follicles do not get damaged and provide a natural look when implanted. DHI hair transplant method is a worldwide popular method.

If there are too many shedding in the planned harvested area the hair follicles can be harvested in other body parts.

Implementation Procedure

During the operation the surgeons use disposable implanters. This is a hygienic hair transplantation method.

DHI hair transplant is a method performed under local anesthesia; the harvested follicles are implemented one by one. Thanks to implanter each follicle can be placed in specific direction in the hair line area. There is no need to create holes or slits before the operation. Implanter is the only tool that must be used during the operation.

DHI is a very moliminous and long process than FUE method. During the process, doctors must be very careful and meticulous.

The Healing Process

After the DHI hair transplant operation, crusting time lasts 5 or 6 days. Since there is no channel openings during the operation this process is very short compared to the other hair transplant methods.

After 2 weeks of the operation the shedding process began, and after 3 months the new hair starts to grow.
