Dhi Hair Transplant, hair loss is a common problem that many people have throughout the world. The most effective treatment for hair loss or balding issues is to have a hair transplant. There are several methods that can be applied in hair transplant operations, and the DHI method is one of them.
The DHI method, which stands for Direct Hair Implantation, is the most advanced hair transplantation method up to date. It has many advantages compared to other hair transplantation methods such as the FUT and FUE. The DHI method allows surgeons to pick individual hair follicles and extract them without damaging the patient’s scalp. It also eliminates the necessity of opening canals in the recipient area.
Dhi Hair Transplant
The surgeons normally open these canals to place the donor follicles in the FUT and FUE methods. However, with the tool that is used in the DHI method, which is called Choi Implanter Pen, follicles can be directly implanted into the scalp. That is why this method is called Direct Hair Implantation.
Three Stages of the DHI method
Hair transplantation operations with the DHI method consists of three stages. The first stage is the collection stage, where the surgeons individually pick and extract follicles to be used in the recipient area. This stage is performed with a device called micro motor, similar to the FUE method.
With the help of this device, surgeons pick follicles from the patient’s donor area, which is usually the nape area. The reason why surgeons pick the nape area as the donor area is that the hair located in this area does not fall out. This feature makes them perfectly suitable for hair transplantation.
The second stage is the arrangement stage. This is the stage that makes the DHI method differ from the other transplantation methods. In this stage, the staff members carefully place the hair follicles into the Choi Implanter Pen. The time that the donor follicles spend outside of the patient’s scalp is reduced significantly during this stage. This greatly improves their chance of survival of the donor grafts.
The last stage is, of course, the plantation stage. In this stage, surgeons directly implant the hair follicles with the use of Choi Implanter Pen.

Dhi Hair Transplantation Costs
Costs of these kinds of operations can differ from patient to patient. There are multiple factors at play that affect the price of a hair transplantation operation.
Aside from the travel and accommodation costs, the most determining factor is how much hair the patient wants to be transplanted. This can greatly increase or decrease prices.
As we have mentioned above, how much hair, or how many grafts, you want transplanted is an important factor. But the number of grafts that must be transplanted also depends on several factors.
If you have excessive hair loss, then more grafts will be needed to cover the balding area on your head. So, your hair loss type and its severity will increase the prices.
Another factor is the availability of your donor grafts. If you don’t have enough grafts on your nape area, then the surgeons will have to use other hair located on your body. Using chest hair, for instance, for transplantation is a difficult process. So, this can affect the prices negatively for you.
The quality of your available grafts is also quite important. Grafts can contain up to 4 hair follicles within them. If there are more hair follicles in each graft, this means that those grafts have higher quality. If the quality of your grafts is high, then the number of grafts required to cover your balding area will be significantly lowered.

The Difference Between the DHI and the FUE Methods
The DHI and the FUE methods are very similar fundamentally. But it is safe to say that the DHI method is the more advanced version of the FUE method. The reason why we say so is the DHI method doesn’t require the surgeons to open canals on the patient’s recipient area. In the FUE method, surgeons begin the canal opening phase after extracting the donor grafts. They open tiny holes in the patient’s recipient area using small blades.
During the canal opening phase, the donor grafts are kept in special containers. The longer the grafts are kept, the lower their chance of survival gets. In the DHI method, however, while the surgeon extracts the grafts, his or her assistants place the extracted ones into the Choi Implanter Pens. The surgeon then can immediately plant the grafts into the patient’s recipient area.
DHI Hair Transplant Results
The DHI method provides patients with the best possible results. The Choi Pen allows surgeons to make small adjustments while planting the donor grafts. The surgeons can perform accurate, precise and effective transplants using the Choi Pens. This provides patients with very natural-looking results.
We have already mentioned that the DHI method shortens the time grafts spend outside of the scalp. This is very important for their survival as they expire when kept outside for too long. The higher survival rate means that more grafts can be planted without being expired. This will provide denser and more natural-looking results for patients.
Seeing the results of hair transplantation operations require a lot of patience. Patients can start to see their results after 6 months from the operation. But seeing the complete results will take at least a year. After a year, your new hair will reach the length of your current hair, and they will be inseparable. But you have to treat your head and your hair carefully during this period in order to get the best results. If you damage your grafts in any way, they might fall out, affecting your results badly.
Advantages of the DHI Method
There are many advantages to the DHI method compared to other hair transplantation methods. This is why the DHI method is considered as the most advanced hair transplantation method. As we have mentioned before, there is no need for opening canals in the DHI method. Surgeons can directly plant donor grafts with the Choi Pen. This also greatly reduces the bleeding that may occur during the operation. It also shortens the healing period significantly. You can return to your normal look back in no time.
We have also mentioned that the DHI method reduces the time that the donor grafts spend outside of the patient’s scalp. This greatly increases the survival rate of the donor grafts, providing denser and more natural-looking results.
One of the biggest advantages of the DHI method is that the operations with this method can be completed without the need for shaving the patient’s hair. That is one of the most important factors why patients prefer the DHI method over the other hair transplantation methods.
The Choi Pen, which is the tool that the surgeons use in the DHI method, allows surgeons to make small adjustments during plantation. These adjustments can range from the angle of the grafts to the depth of the implants. With these small adjustments, the surgeon can work around the patient’s scalp more precisely. This also provides more natural-looking results.
Disadvantages of the DHI Method
But there are some disadvantages of the DHI method. We should state that it is more sophisticated compared to other hair transplantation methods. This makes it a difficult and demanding task for the surgeons who are performing it. All the disadvantages we will now list are related to its being a very difficult method to implement.
Operations with the DHI method take significantly more time to perform. Compared to the FUE method, operations with the DHI method take almost twice as long. This is why DHI operations are divided into two sessions. This can be problematic for some candidates.
Since the DHI operations are more sophisticated, they require more caution on behalf of the surgeons. This will raise the costs of these operations. It also requires more experienced surgeons.
Adjusting the angle and the direction of the donor grafts is crucial in these operations. It directly affects how natural your result will look like. But it is not an easy task.
All these factors show that implementing the DHI method requires expertise and experience. These factors cause the DHI prices to be higher compared to other hair transplantation methods.
Frequently Asked Questions About the DHI Method
Does DHI hair transplant hurt?
Like in all other hair transplant operations, surgeons apply local anaesthesia to the patient’s recipient and donor areas before starting the DHI hair transplantation. Anaesthesia eliminates any pain or discomfort the patient might experience during the operation. In short, DHI hair transplant doesn’t hurt at all.
Do I have to take any precautions before my DHI operation?
Avoid taking blood thinners for at least a week prior to your operation to prevent bleeding. You don’t have to take any other precautions.
Will my head bleed a lot during the operation?
Bleeding is minimal in the DHI operations, especially compared to the FUT method.
Will I have any permanent scars on my head?
The operations with the DHI method leave no marks or scars on the patient’s recipient and donor areas.
Do I have to take medication after the operation?
Patients are prescribed with painkillers and antibiotics to reduce the pain and to prevent inflammation.
