DHI hair transplant is a restoration technique that involves extracting hair follicles from a donor area of the scalp and implanting them into the recipient area using a specialized pen-like instrument.
The procedure is called DHI because it uses a "Direct Hair Implantation" method, which allows for more precise and efficient implantation of hair follicles.
DHI hair transplant is generally suitable for individuals who have experienced hair loss or thinning due to factors such as genetics, aging, hormonal changes, or medical conditions. Ideal candidates for the DHI method should have healthy donor hair in the back or sides of the scalp that can be used for this operation.
The history of the first hair transplantation dates back to the 1940s and today very successful results are obtained with highly developed methods. The DHI hair transplant method has advantages over other techniques and is therefore one of the most popular treatments.
DHI hair transplant has several advantages over other hair restoration techniques, such as FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) or FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation), as mentioned above. Here are some of the advantages of this procedure.
DHI hair transplantation is performed using a specialized pen-like instrument called a "Choi Implanter" or "DHI Implanter", which allows for the definite and efficient implantation of hair follicles into the recipient area. Here are the general steps involved in this operation:
DHI hair transplantation offers a minimally invasive, precise, and effective technique for hair restoration with minimal scarring. The candidates should consult with a qualified hair restoration clinic to determine if the DHI method is a suitable option for their individual needs and goals.
DHI hair transplant is performed under local anesthesia, so the procedure itself is not painful.
The length of the procedure depends on the number of hair follicles being transplanted. It can take several hours to transplant a large number of hair follicles, but smaller procedures take less time.
Most patients can go back to work and do other normal activities within a few days of the procedure, but it's important to avoid heavy exercises and direct sunlight for a few weeks to allow for proper healing.
