Direct hair implantation (Choi – pen transplantation) stands out as one of the advanced methods used throughout plastic surgery to cure hair loss. This method, also called direct hair transplant, is carried out using specially designed pen tips. These tips, also called DHI Pen, can be used for hair transplantation, incisions (canals) and implanting hair follicles. The DHI method, applied with HAIRAVRASYA’s advanced technology especially preferred for people who want unshaven hair transplant.
What is DHI Hair Transplant?
DHI hair transplantation stands out as a subset of the FUE hair transplantation method and combines two methods. While the FUE method requires different applications such as opening of canals (incisions) and hair implantation, the DHI method allows both methods to be performed in a single application.
How is DHI Hair Transplant Applied?
In this method, which consists of two steps, the primary procedure is the extracting of grafts. The grafts taken from the donor area are implanted into the target sites using special DHI pins. Thanks to the tool of plastic surgery, the so- called implementator, micro-thin canals are opened very close to each other. The hair follicles are then placed back into the scalp. In conventional methods, the opening of the canals (incisions) and the implantation of the hair follicles are the steps that must be performed.
What Are The Advantages of DHI Method?
DHI hair transplant method, which is in high demand by patients who want to undergo hair transplant surgery, has important advantages. Other advantages of DHI hair transplantation, besides the benefits of faster wound healing and efficiency, can be listed as follows:
• High Density Hair Transplantation
One of the most important advantages of DHI is that this method allows high-density hair transplantation. Accordingly, the hair follicles can be implanted densely in the narrow space with the DHI method. Therefore, patients will no longer suffer from alopecia, but also have high density hair.
• Faster Healing Process
One of the most important advantages of DHI is its rapid implantation. After harvesting the hair follicles, DHI performs the channeling and implantation of the hair follicles in a single step, which has the particular advantage of a fast recovery time.
• Customizable Hair Transplantation
One of the most important advantages of DHI hair transplantation is that it makes it customizable. As part of this feature, it is possible to apply specific solutions to a person’s head structure and hair follicles during DHI hair transplantation. For example, the desired angles are given at the desired height so that the desired look of the patient’s hair is easily achieved. Patients will no longer suffer from receding hairline.
• Damage and Side Effects are Minimized
Another advantage of the DHI method is that only canals of the desired width and density are opened during the surgery. This way, damage and side effects that may occur after the DHI hair loss treatment process are completely eliminated.
Frequently Asked Questions about DHI Hair Transplantation
Patients interested in DHI hair transplantation have many questions about whether the surgery is effective or painful. The questions asked about DHI hair transplantation can be listed as follows:
• Is DHI a Painful Method?
To give a general answer: HAIRAVRASYA uses sedation hair transplantation, which is one of the most innovative anesthesia methods in the industry, and pain is kept to a minimum. Thanks to the needle-free anesthesia machine, the desired area is anesthetized without use of needles and prevents pain during the hair transplant process.
• DHI hair transplantation is used for whom?
DHI hair transplant can be performed on anyone the doctor deems suitable. Especially men, who do not want to be bald anymore, wish to have a hair transplant without shaving their hair. Their preferred method of unshaven hair transplantation is also used in DHI eyebrow transplantation and DHI beard transplantation.
• What should be considered before hair transplant with DHI method?
In the area where the surgery is to be performed, it is sufficient to trim and clean the long hairs, if any, to better target the area. In the same way, the hair in the donor area should be trimmed.
• Are there any medications used after the hair transplant?
In certain cases, small amounts of antibiotics are used to reduce the risk of infection after hair transplantation. The antibiotics used both speed up the healing process and minimize the possibility of further infection.
