Founded in 1970, the DHI method of hair transplantation is known as one of the most advanced hair transplantation methods used today.
In 2016, the method, which spread all over the world and increased its recognition, can be defined as one of the variations of the FUE technique. Because although the transplantation of hair follicles is different from the FUE technique; the graft collection phase is carried out in the same way. The most important privilege offered to patients by the DHI method is the possibility of unshaven hair transplantation…
Another important feature that distinguishes the DHI method from other hair transplantation application methods is the Choi Implanter used in the root transplantation phase. Choi, specially produced for the method, resembles a pen. This special apparatus, which causes the DHI method to be known as hair transplantation with Choi method, is known as the most necessary detail of the application.
After the examination and general examinations, if the hair transplant candidate has suitable characteristics for the DHI method; the day of transplantation is determined.
On the day of the operation, only the hair in the donor area of the patient (usually the nape of the neck) is shaved to a length of 3 mm.
Grafts containing hair follicles are started to be collected from the shaved donor area by means of a micro motor or manually.
Actually, this is exactly where the distinctive features of the DHI method come into play. Because in this method, separate applications are not required to first open the canal and then place the hair follicles. This is because the Choi pen allows simultaneous canalization and hair follicle placement.
Each root taken during hair transplantation with the DHI method is placed in Choi without waiting and directly transplanted.
The question “Does hair transplantation with DHI method work?” is asked by all hair transplant candidates who are eligible for the hair transplantation procedure with DHI method. The first thing to know is that for a hair transplant to be successful or work, there are multiple details that need to be carefully calculated and implemented.
Adjusting the design of the front hairline in a correct and symmetrical way, giving the right angle to the channel where the hair follicles will be placed, placing the transplanted hair in such a way that the transplanted hair grows in the direction of the existing hair growth and spacing the hair follicles as often as possible are the most important details that make a hair transplant work.
Although Choi makes the implementation of all these details much easier; hair transplantation with the DHI method requires finesse and expertise. There is no reason why the Choi technique applied by a specialized doctor and team should not work.
Choi Implanter used in DHI hair transplantation, which is highly efficient in terms of the end result, has a higher cost than other hair transplantation equipment. In addition, since the collected hair follicles need to be placed immediately, the medical team performing the operation must consist of 6 people. Therefore, the price of the operation is slightly higher than other techniques.
