DHI Hair Transplant
Direct hair transplant application with an implanter pen
Direct Hair Transplantation (DHI) is one of the most preferred transplant methods employed in order to restore male and female hair loss. When delivered by experienced experts DHI provides great results for desired cosmetic look. Incision and transplant happen simultaneously in DHI. This allows less off-site time for extracted Follicular Units (FUs) hence minimized graft loss. The method also makes it possible for denser transplant and this is why DHI offers a natural look after the procedure.
Medical implanting pens called Choi pens are the key to this method. With the help of Choi pens FUs are transplanted into the recipient area at once without separate incisions. This makes the incision and transplant one single operation and increases the patient’s comfort henceforth. DHI; enhances transplant quality, provides more dense and natural result, offers no-shave operation and therefore patients could keep their currently existing hairs on the top. With all these patients return to their daily routines soonest possible.
DHI Hair Transplant, How?
The procedure starts with the application of local anesthesia to the scalp tissue. After the extraction FUs are to be loaded into implanting pens one by one with utmost care. Critical to the transplant natural hair angles should be preserved while delivering graft placement. Once right angle and direction ensured, graft is transplanted into the recipient area with the help of implanter pen. The diameter of implanter pen is determined by the unique structure of patient’s FUs. Customizing DHI transplant for each patient is paramount like all the other transplant procedures.
