DHI Hair Transplant in Turkey

For individuals struggling with the hair loss problem, the hair transplantation application is the most popular solution. From a patient’s arms, legs, or hairy sites of the scalp, healthy hair samples are taken to be replanted to the areas suffering from hair loss. As the hair samples are the patient’s hair, the outcomes look natural, as patients have never lost them.

DHI (Direct Hair Implantation) hair transplant is a more enhanced hair transplantation technique. The method of DHI hair transplantation originated from the FUE hair transplantation method. Yet, compared to the FUE hair transplantation, the DHI hair transplantation method does not require a pre-opened channel to replant hair follicles. In the DHI hair transplantation, with the help of a first-rate extractor, the hair grafts from healthy parts of the donor sites are extracted individually, and they are put into the problematic areas of the patients.

What Is DHI Hair Transplantation Method –And How Does It Work?

Hair loss is a common problem both between men and women. And the problem affects patients' appearance and their mental health. Eventually, the problem causes stress and a reduced level of socializing.

There are several methods in hair transplantation, such as FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) hair transplantation method and FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) hair transplantation method. These are the two most common applications of hair transplantation.

The newly innovated derivation of the FUE hair transplantation method is DHI (Direct Hair Implantation) hair transplantation. In FUE, a surgeon opens channels in the patient's problematic scalp area before the plantation phase of hair grafts. However, in the DHI application, surgeons use a dedicated tool looking like a pen to do both the channelling and the implantation process simultaneously.

DHI hair transplant is a derivated version of the FUE hair transplant method. Hence, both methods are applied in a similar process. The surgeon extracts hair grafts from the patient's donor site, generally, the sides or the back of the scalp, to put them into the problematic sites. The followings are the steps of the DHI hair transplantation method.

  • First, the surgeon shaves the patient's problematic scalp sites and uses local anesthesia on them to numb the pre-processed area.
  • The surgeon collects the follicles of hair from the donor sites of the patient with a pen-shaped tool specialized for DHI hair transplant operations.
  • The hair grafts collected will be replanted via the specialized tool into the balding areas of the patient's scalp.
  • The surgeon uses the necessary medications on the patient’s processed sites of the scalp.

The DHI hair transplant operation mostly lasts 7 or 8 hours. However, the length of the operation depends on the number of hair grafts to be extracted and to be transplanted. After the operation, the results will be apparent after 12 or 18 months.

Generally, the scars that occurred due to the operation are completely healed after the first two weeks. And also, the scabs start to fall off after the first two weeks.

In the FUE hair transplantation operation, a doctor open channels where the extracted hair grafts will eventually be inserted. The DHI technique includes a specialized pen-shaped tool that allows a surgeon to do implantation and channelling process at the same time. In contrast to the FUT hair transplantation, DHI and FUE do not leave a linear scar, so the operation costs of DHI and FUE are quite expensive.

DHI method of hair transplantation exercise is the most modern and permanent solution for patients suffering from balding.

Hair transplantations are generally safer and mostly do not cause and complications after the surgery. Both the FUE and the DHI hair transplant operations do not require the extraction of a considerable amount of strip of the patient’s scalp. However, the DHI hair transplantation operations cause little white dots on the site where the hair grafts have been extracted. Yet, these little dots are barely visible and do not cause a problem for most patients.
The followings are the most known possible side-effects of a DHI hair transplant operation:

The Potential Side Effects Of Anesthesia
In the DHI hair transplantation operation, a local anesthesia procedure is applied to the patient's scalp to experience a painless operation. Anesthesia is a safe application, yet the execution can cause some problems.

Shock Hair Loss Problem
The phenomenon “Shock Hair Loss” could appear in the first two months of the operation. If it occurs, the patients could experience a temporary hair loss situation on the processed sites of the scalp. Yet, shock hair loss is a common and temporary problem, and patients do not have to worry about it if the hair loss phase does not last longer than one or two months.

The extracted hair grafts shall be implemented properly. The surgeon needs to take the natural hairline, the aim, and the density into account during the planning phase. If the surgeon neglects these factors, the process would be done poorly. Hence, the outcomes of the operations could be unsatisfactory for the patient.

Therefore, patients are advised to do good research of clinics and surgeons to increase the success chance of the operation. Patients could also check surgeon's before-after posts on social media to have an idea about the results.

DHI Global firm has clinics in Athens, London, Paris, Or Dubai, and the prices in these locations range from 3,250 dollars to 13,500 dollars.

The price of a DHI hair transplant operation heavily depends on the local economic reality of the clinic. Besides that, the price is also related to the number of hair grafts extracted and implanted. And most insurance firms do not cover the costs of hair transplantation operations as it is often considered a cosmetic operation.

Patients, to reduce the price, often prefer cheaper locations compared to others.

  • Patients shall avoid blood thinner consumption before a hair transplantation surgery.
  • Patients shall also avoid consuming alcohol and smoking before the operation.
  • Patients shall be aware of their medical profile as it will be needed due to the anesthesia application.
  • Patients shall not dye their hair before the process of hair transplantation.
  • Suppose the patient has a skin condition on the surface of their scalp. In that case, the diseased part shall be treated before the hair transplantation operation.

Potential patients undergo an enhanced check-up before the DHI hair transplant surgery. This phase is necessary to determine if any risks and health problems are making the operation risky. To understand if the patient is available, doctors examine the patient's blood tests and analyze the patient's donor area.

To experience a successful operation, having tools to make the hair transplantation operation possible is not enough. Both patient and doctor shall prepare a plan to execute the hair transplantation process perfectly. So, both the tools and planning phase matter for the success rate and the outcomes of the DHI hair transplant operation.

Followings are the matters of the planning phase.

  • A surgeon determines the number of hair follicles to be extracted from the pre-determined donor site of the patient according to the patient's expressions and preferences.
  • Determination of the sources of follicles of hair of scalp area.
  • Determination of the patient’s unique hairline growth direction and angles of the hair grafts
  • Finally, a surgeon draws the optimum hairline for the patient.

To increase the success rate of the DHI hair transplantation operation, the surgeon needs to determine some factors related to the survival rate of hair follicles. For instance, the identity of a patient's hair, patient's hair health are the two factors. Moreover, the studies related to the issue suggest that the hair grafts' survival rate was around 90 percent and 100 percent.
