DHI Hair Transplant: The procedure

The DHI (Direct Hair Implantation) hair transplant consists of placing hair implants in the area of the head with the greatest loss. As with the FUE hair transplant, this is done follicle by follicle; however, the main difference is that this procedure is done with a special tool and the implantation is done instantly.

This does not leave the slightest trace or scar and gives the patient a completely natural appearance. It is faster, because there is no space for caring for the follicles and, in certain cases, recovery can be faster than with any other of the hair transplant techniques that we offer at Cancun Hair Restoration.

We can summarize this procedure for you in 3 simple steps, although the doctor’s work in DHI hair transplantation is more detailed; these steps are:

  1. The first step for DHI hair transplantation is the preparation of the area to be treated; For this reason, it begins by shaving that area of the head and applying a local anesthetic so that you do not feel the slightest discomfort during the procedure.
  2. The plastic surgeon will be in charge of collecting the hair follicles one by one with a special tool known as Choi Implanter Pen, which has a diameter of approximately 1 mm or less that allows adequate extraction.
  3. The next step consists of the immediate placement of each of the follicles collected with the same tool in the recipient area. These two steps are done immediately, which guarantees greater care of the grafts.
  4. The third step is the creation of implant channels that have a natural appearance, which is achieved little by little as the doctor places each of the hair follicles in the area where there is greater hair loss.
  5. Once he has finished extracting all the follicles necessary to correct your hair loss problem, the doctor will apply a special antibiotic cream and place temporary bandages where the DHI hair transplant was performed.

With the help of the Choi Implanter Pen, the plastic surgeon can position the hair follicles with greater control of the angle, direction of the hair and proper depth. In this way, the best possible results are obtained with DHI hair transplant compared to other hair transplant techniques.

The DHI hair transplant technique is an improved version of the FUE hair transplant, as the procedure is very similar. The follicles are extracted from the lateral and nape areas of the head, where there is generally a greater volume. However, the use of the tool and the immediacy of placement offer better results to patients.

As for the duration of each session of this procedure, it can vary depending on how advanced the hair loss is; however, most of the time it can be between 6 and 8 hours, or even less. Recovery from a DHI hair transplant will take between 1 and 2 months and after 10 months you will be able to see the final results of the operation.

DHI Hair Transplant vs. FUE Hair Transplant

As we already mentioned, both procedures are very similar; however, there are important factors that distinguish them from one another that you should also consider. The DHI hair transplant has its advantages and differences, which we decided to place in the following 6 points:

  1. Immediate placement: First, each of the follicles are immediately placed in the recipient area during DHI hair transplantation. They do not have to be placed in storage for relocation.
  2. The care of the follicles: Due to the previous point, it is not necessary to place the follicles in conservation so that they are not damaged. For this reason, the largest number of follicles can be placed with the DHI hair transplant.
  3. The use of a specialized tool: In order to perform the DHI hair transplant, the plastic surgeon requires the Choi Implanter Pen. This tool is specialized and only plastic surgeons with experience and knowledge know how to use it.
  4. The duration of the session: Due to the fact that the placement is done immediately, the DHI hair transplant session lasts less. Although it is still a long surgery, the time can be reduced with the help of the Choi Implanter Pen.
  5. Recovery from the operation: The Choi Implanter Pen helps the doctor to make smaller incisions in order to properly position the hair follicles during the DHI hair transplant; this in turn allows the patient to recover faster.
  6. The cost of the procedure: Without a doubt another important factor is the cost of the DHI hair transplant; this is higher than with the FUE technique, but it will be different according to the needs of each patient.
