DHI (Direct Hair Implantation)

DHI (Direct Hair Implantation) is a highly advanced hair transplant technique that offers precise and realistic results for individuals experiencing hair loss. Unlike traditional methods, DHI involves directly implanting hair follicles into the recipient area using a specialized tool called a Choi Pen. This innovative approach minimizes trauma to the scalp and ensures maximum survival of the transplanted hair follicles. Compared to traditional Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), DHI minimizes the time that hair follicles are outside of the body, potentially leading to higher graft survival rates. One notable advantage of DHI is that it typically allows for minimal to no shaving of the recipient area, preserving the existing hair and offering a more discreet and natural looking outcome. DHI is known for its ability to create a dense and natural hairline with minimal scarring, making it a popular choice for those seeking a permanent solution to hair loss.

What is DHI?

The DHI (Direct Hair Implantation) technique is an advanced hair transplant method that offers significant advancements over traditional approaches. In DHI, specialized tools such as the Choi Pen are utilized to extract hair follicles individually from the donor area, typically located at the back or sides of the scalp. These extracted follicles are then directly implanted into the recipient area, where hair loss has occurred, without the need for creating recipient sites beforehand.

The Choi Pen, a patented device, enables precise control over the depth, angle, and direction of hair follicle implantation, resulting in a natural looking hairline with optimal density and distribution. Unlike traditional Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), which involves creating recipient sites before implantation, DHI streamlines the process by simultaneously extracting and implanting follicles, reducing the time they spend outside the body and potentially enhancing their viability.

The DHI technique minimizes trauma to the scalp and promotes faster healing, as it eliminates the need for incisions or sutures in the recipient area. Additionally, the absence of incisions means there is minimal risk of scarring, making DHI a preferred choice for those seeking aesthetically pleasing results.

Overall, the DHI technique offers a highly precise and efficient method for hair transplantation, resulting in natural looking outcomes with minimal downtime and scarring. Its ability to achieve dense and aesthetically pleasing hair restoration has made it a popular choice among individuals seeking a permanent solution to hair loss.

However, your surgeon will advise you on any necessary shaving based on your individual needs and the extent of the procedure.

The results of a DHI hair transplant become noticeable gradually over several months as the transplanted hair follicles begin to grow. Most patients see significant improvement in hair density and appearance within 6 to 12 months after the procedure.

The recovery process after a DHI hair transplant typically involves mild discomfort, swelling, and scabbing in the recipient area for the first few days. Most patients can resume normal activities within a week and experience complete healing within a few weeks to months.

Like any surgical procedure, DHI hair transplant carries some risks, including infection, bleeding, scarring, and poor graft survival. However, these risks are minimal when performed by a qualified and experienced hair transplant surgeon.
