This method can be mentioned as hair transplantation for women because they are most interested in transplantation without full cut and transplantation between hairs. Men can prefer this method when they are in similar condition. What is important here is the method that the doctor would prefer for the best result.
How is used the DHI method?
Hair transplantation process is known as Grafts collection, consists of three stages: collection of grafts, opening of micro channels and implantation of hair follicles.
Unlike other methods, DHi technique consists of 2 stages. The opening of the micro channels and the extracting of the grafts are performed simultaneously. The collection of grafts is the same in the FUE technique as in the DHI technique. The collected grafts (hair molecules) are placed one by one into the implanter pens after they are separated from their tissues. This placement should be done very carefully and attentively. With the Choi impanter pen, both channels are opened and the roots are placed in these channels.
The most important point in hair transplantation is naturalness. When hair transplantation is performed, it is very important to plant hair follicles at the most appropriate angle with angles of 40-45 degrees.
Another important point for naturalness is the right direction and this is made in accordance with the direction of the previous hair. The hair roots placed on the Choi needle are determined by the angle and direction of the needle and the needle is carried out by protecting the existing hair with the pushing feature of the needle.
During the operation from 2 to 6 Choi pen and an average 15-16 pointed choi tip are used. The ends of these items can have different sizes. Which pen will be used for transplantation is determined by your specialist doctor according to your hair and skin structure.
What are the advantages and disadvantages of the DHI Method?
Hair transplantation method with DHI, in fact, is actually known as an old transplantation system. In this system, grafts taken from hair or different parts of the body are placed in an apparatus before planting. Grafts are planted with the help of this apparatus. In the normal method, the roots are placed in the channel and placed in the pen. Not direct, but actually an indirect method.
Even though it is said that it does not contain stitches and cuts, it is possible to open the hair with very small and natural channels by a specialist doctor and his team. At the same time, an incision is formed in the DHI method when the roots are placed under the skin. Increasing the number of roots that can be extracted also does not reflect the reality. Because this process is a transplant method. It is not a root taking method. Therefore, it is not possible to increase the number of roots to be extracted.
DHI Hair transplantation lasts longer than normal hair transplantation. An operation that can be completed in 1 day with normal method can be completed in 2-3 days with DHI method. This patient’s repeated anesthesia is not a comfortable condition. Reducing the time the grafts are left out is necessary for best results. Therefore, it is not possible to reach high graft numbers.
Post-operation wound healing is not shorter than other sowing methods. The cost of the items used according to the normal method, most of the time the operation postpones to the 2nd day, and the operation with more people increases the cost of hair transplantation to the patient very much. The important point here is that the patient does not make a big difference compared to the normal method, although the patient has to bear the extra cost.
In a study conducted in Japan, DHI method has been shown to develop 4 times more scar than slit. Again, in this study, it was reported that DHI was not a suitable method for frequent transplantation and it was more traumatic.
The DHI method of hair transplantation is advantageous for patients who have rare hair and who only want thickness. Therefore, it may be advantageous for women to use this method. However, the cost of transplantation hair here can be a serious problem for the patient. Always applying the method that your doctor recommends to you will both increase your results and provide a cost advantage for you.
