DHI Hair Transplant

1. Hair Follicle Extraction:

  • Individual hair follicles are extracted from the donor area (usually the back or sides of the head). The extraction process can be done using a micro punch tool, similar to the one used in Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE).

2. Hair Follicle Preparation:

  • The harvested hair follicles are carefully examined and prepared for implantation. This involves sorting the follicles based on their size, quality, and the number of hairs in each follicle. This meticulous preparation is crucial for achieving a natural-looking result.

3. Recipient Site Preparation:

  • Unlike traditional FUE methods, where incisions are made in the recipient area before implantation, DHI involves immediate implantation. The recipient sites are created using a specialized tool called the Choi Implanter Pen.

4. Implantation with Choi Implanter Pen:

  • The Choi Implanter Pen is a device with a hollow needle and a plunger mechanism. The surgeon loads individual hair follicles into the pen.
  • The surgeon then uses the Choi Implanter Pen to directly implant the hair follicles into the recipient sites created earlier. This process allows for precise control over the depth, angle, and direction of each implantation.

5. Healing and Recovery:

  • After the DHI procedure, the transplanted hair follicles undergo a healing process. Over the next few weeks, the transplanted hair may go through a shedding phase. However, this is a normal part of the process, and new hair growth should start within a few months.
  • Full results, with noticeable improvements in density and appearance, may take several months to a year, as the transplanted hair gradually grows and thickens.

Advantages of DHI:

  • Precision: The Choi Implanter Pen allows for precise control over the angle, direction, and depth of hair follicle implantation, potentially resulting in a more natural-looking hairline.
  • Reduced Handling Time: DHI minimizes the time the hair follicles spend outside the body, which may enhance their viability and improve the success of transplantation.
  • No Pre-made Incisions: Unlike traditional FUE methods, DHI does not require pre-made incisions in the recipient area before implantation.

It’s important to note that the success of any hair transplant, including DHI, depends on the skill and experience of the surgeon, the quality of the donor hair, and the overall health of the patient. Consulting with a qualified and experienced hair transplant surgeon is crucial for understanding the specific details of the procedure and determining whether it’s the right option for you.
