What is DHI Hair Transplant?

DHI hair transplant, or direct hair implantation, is a modified version of FUE hair implants. DHI technique is an effective way to regain lost hair for men and women. As a minimally invasive hair restoration technique, DHI hair implants can provide natural-looking hair and long-lasting results for individuals experiencing hair loss problems. DHI procedure involves extracting hair follicles from the donor area (usually the nape area) and implanting them in the recipient area where the hair loss occurs.

In DHI procedure, the surgeon uses a specialized tool, a CHOI implanter pen, to implant the hair follicles into the recipient area. The Choi implanter pen has a hollow needle with a diameter of less than 1mm, allowing for precise hair follicle implantation. The tool also has a special mechanism that ensures the correct depth and angle of implantation, resulting in more natural-looking hair.

DHI Hair Transplant Advantages

DHI hair restoration methods offers many benefits. The following are some benefits of DHI technique:

  • DHI is a minimally invasive hair restoration technique and does not require incisions or stitches, resulting in reduced scarring and faster recovery time than other techniques.
  • Unlike other hair transplant techniques such as FUE, DHI hair restoration may not require shaving before the procedure, making the DHI procedure less noticeable during the healing process and allowing the patient to resume normal activities sooner.
  • DHI minimizes the time between hair follicle extraction and implantation, which can improve the survival rate of transplanted hair.
  • DHI provides high density results. Surgeons can apply 70-95 hair follicles per cm2 with DHI method whereas with FUE method surgeons can implant 40-45 hair follicles per cm2.

How is DHI Performed?

DHI technique involves following steps:


The surgeon examines the patient's hair loss case and determines the best approach. Factors such as the cause and type of hair loss, the probability of future hair loss, the patient's hair type and expectations, age, gender, and medical history are considered during the consultation. The surgeon draws the hairline based on the patient's natural hairline and preferences and evaluates the donor and recipient areas to determine the number of grafts needed. Pre-operative tests are conducted, and the patient's medical history is reviewed.

DHI Hair Transplant Recovery Timeline

DHI hair transplant recovery timeline last for approximately 12 to 18 months. After operation you may experience slight redness, soreness, and tenderness on your scalp. However, these symptoms typically subside relatively quickly, usually within one to two weeks after the transplant procedure. Between the second and eighth week, it is common to go through a phase referred to as “shock hair loss", during which a significant portion of the transplanted hair may fall out. If this occurs, there is no need to be alarmed. It is entirely normal and observed in approximately 95% of cases, and represents a temporary reaction to the treatment. In the subsequent weeks and months, your transplanted hair will recover and begin regrowing. We will also apply PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) to stimulate the healing process. During this period, hair growth may be relatively slow. However, by the sixth month, most patients typically notice that approximately 45-50% of the transplanted hair has started to grow. Between the sixth and ninth month, hair growth tends to reach approximately 75%. Additionally, the transplanted hair usually gains thickness and density. At around nine months after your DHI operation, the remaining 25% of transplanted hair follicles should start to grow. However, it is important to note that it may take up to 18 months to see the complete and final results.

Protecting the scalp and avoiding movements that may dislodge the hair follicles after the surgery is essential. Patients can typically return to work within 5-7 days, as the recovery time compare to FUE is relatively short. However, the best results are seen gradually over time, so it is essential to carefully follow the doctor's instructions.

Best Candidates for DHI Hair Transplant

The most appropriate candidates for DHI hair transplant are the patients who:

  • Suffering from hair loss and are at least 18 years of age.
  • Have sufficient donor hair density and realistic expectations regarding the extent and timing of hair regrowth.
  • Want eyebrow, beard, and mustache transplantation.
  • have small areas to cover such as receding hairlines
  • looking to increase the density
  • prefer not to have their hair shaved. Unlike other techniques that require shaving the donor area, DHI allows for extracting and implanting hair follicles without extensive shaving.

What You shouldn't Expect from DHI Hair Transplant

DHI hair transplant Turkey can effectively treat hair loss, but it does have some limitations.

  • Immediate results: Patients should not expect immediate results, as the transplanted hair can take several months to grow and reach the desired density and thickness.
  • A full head of hair: While hair transplant surgery can restore hair to areas that have experienced significant hair loss, it cannot create a full head of hair if there is insufficient donor hair. It is also important to note that hair loss may continue in other areas of the scalp, and additional surgeries may be necessary to maintain the desired hair density.
  • Pain-free experience: While modern hair transplant techniques are painless, patients may experience discomfort and swelling during and after the procedure, which can be managed with over-the-counter pain medications.

The duration of a DHI hair transplant operation can vary depending on several factors, such as the number of grafts to be implanted, the patient's hair characteristics, the expertise of the surgeon, and the technique used. Generally, a DHI procedure can take 4 to 8 hours to complete.

DHI hair transplant is a low-pain and minimally invasive procedure. Since the surgeon applies local anesthesia to numb the scalp, most patients experience no pain. However, after the process, patients might feel mild pain and discomfort.

Yes, women can undergo a DHI hair transplant to restore hair loss or thinning. Still, they need to undergo a thorough evaluation by a qualified surgeon to determine if they are good candidates for the procedure. The approach to hair restoration may need to be tailored to the individual patient's needs based on factors such as the cause and extent of the hair loss, the density and quality of the donor's hair, and the patient's overall health and medical history.

Choi implanter pen is a special tool that surgeons use while performing DHI. Choi implanter pen enables simultaneous canal opening and hair follicle implantation.

The transplanted hairs with DHI are considered to be permanent, as they are taken from the donor area of the scalp, which is resistant to hair loss. The donor hair follicles are transplanted into the recipient area of the scalp, where they continue to grow and behave like natural hair.

You can wash your hair after a DHI hair transplant, but you should wait at least 48 to 72 hours and follow your surgeon's post-operative instructions carefully to avoid damaging the newly transplanted hair follicles.
