DHI Hair Transplantation

Direct Hair Implantation (DHI) is another method of hair transplantation that is similar to FUE but with some notable differences in the technique.

In DHI, the process involves:

  1. Extraction: Like FUE, individual hair follicles are extracted from the donor area of the scalp, typically the back or sides.

  2. Implantation: However, in DHI, the implantation process differs. Instead of creating recipient sites in the scalp before implanting the follicles, DHI utilizes a specialized tool called a Choi implanter pen. This pen has a hollow needle that simultaneously creates the recipient site and inserts the harvested hair follicle into the scalp.

  3. No Need for Incisions: Unlike FUE, where recipient sites are made before transplantation, DHI implants the hair directly without the need for pre-made incisions. This can result in potentially quicker healing times and less trauma to the scalp.

DHI is often marketed as a more advanced and precise technique compared to traditional FUE. Some claimed benefits of DHI include:

  • Higher Graft Survival Rate: Advocates of DHI suggest that the Choi implanter pen allows for better control over the angle, direction, and depth of the implanted follicles, potentially leading to a higher survival rate of the transplanted hair.

  • Natural Results: Because the implantation is done with precision using the Choi implanter, proponents argue that the results of DHI can look more natural.

  • Faster Healing: With the direct implantation method, proponents suggest that healing times may be faster compared to traditional FUE.

However, it’s crucial to consult with a qualified and experienced surgeon who specializes in DHI procedures to ensure the best possible outcome. Seeking treatment from a reputable institution with a track record of successful DHI surgeries, such as the Istanbul Aesthetic Center (IAC), can provide added assurance and peace of mind.
