DHI HAIR TRANSPLANTATION METHOD
Direct Hair Implantation in Turkey (DHI), also known as micro-FUE. It is one of the newest methods of hair restoration in Turkey.
This is the process of removing hair follicles from the donor area using a pen-like device (Choi Pen) containing a hollow needle.
Hair transplant specialists can strategically transplant your own hair from an area of your head (donor area) to the bald area while providing a completely natural look using the Choi Pen.
This requires making sure that the angle and direction of each hair follicle is correct in the area of hair loss, usually in the crown area of the head.
The DHI Hair Transplantation Method in Istanbul makes the donor area look natural and scar-free after the operation.
One of the main advantages of DHI extraction is that it does not require cutting the patient’s skin to remove individual hair from the donor area and is only 1mm or smaller in diameter.
This allows minimally invasive hair uptake while maintaining the integrity of the tissues around the hair and minimizing the risk of scarring.
DHI Hair Restoration in Turkey, the survival rate of hair follicles and maximize the level of growth, aims to reduce the duration of stay outside the skin during the process of extracting the stem.
The direct hair transplant technique allows for graft implantation with less trauma and almost no scar.

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is usually performed by shaving the entire head, back and side parts of the scalp while the hair is extracted using the follicular unit extraction technique.
However, unshaven hair restoration consists of cutting the hair from donor area individually, while leaving the surrounding hair long. This process requires careful skill and expertise to master this technique.

3 STAGES OF DIRECT HAIR TRANSPLANTATION
DESIGN AND PLANNING
Our medical team identifies your donor and recipient areas and works to customize a plan that will help you achieve the most natural looking hairline possible with a healthy donor area.
REMOVAL OF THE GRAFTS
Individual follicles will be taken from the back of the scalp. This process is performed by a micromotor that creates micro-holes 0.7-0.8 mm in diameter. It creates very small holes in the donor area.
As a result, these wounds heal quickly without leaving scars. Our trained team examines follicular grafts and prepares them for placement. Follicular unit transplants are organized in groups according to the number of hair in each follicle.
This step is the difference between traditional FUE and direct hair transplantation. Depending on your design, our medical team makes microscopic cuts where the follicles are placed, that match your natural hair growth pattern. Individual donor grafts are loaded into Choi Pen Implanter and implanted directly into the scalp without the need to create donor incisions.
BEFORE THE HAIR TRANSPLANTATION
It is recommended that you do not smoke for the two weeks prior to the procedure and stop taking aspirin, ibuprofen or any medication or vitamin supplements containing vitamin E. It is also recommended not to cut or dye the hair a week before the procedure.
An initial meeting will be held prior to the procedure to discuss the details and establish a suitable donation site.
AS A PART OF DHI HAIR TRANSPLANT
Before hair transplantation, the doctor plans the number of grafts to be transplanted into the balding area and the design of the hairline. Hair transplant is a small procedure performed under local anesthesia. Local anesthesia will be applied to the donor area and bald area.
The desired number of grafts will be taken one by one from the donor area. This process is performed by drilling mini holes of approximately 0.7-0.8 mm in diameter. A special solution will be applied to the transplanted hair.
In the last part of direct hair transplantation, individual donor grafts are loaded into Choi Pen Implanter and implanted directly into the scalp without the need for donor incision.
WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER THE PROCESS?
The procedure does not require a hospital stay and patients can return to their hotels. The hair transplant surgeon will explain aftercare instructions, including which specific shampoo to use to cleanse the head, what medications to use, and which antibiotics to take. The recovery time for hair transplantation is minimal.
Transplanted hair will fall out within 2 to 3 weeks after the procedure. This leads to new hair growth. Most people will see new hair growth after 4-6 months.
