HAIR TRANSPLANT TECHNIQUES

Two main techniques are used to obtain follicles for transplantation: FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) and FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation). The best option will depend on the extent and characteristics of the hair loss, the quality and quantity of donor hair, as well as the final look you are hoping to achieve.

FUE Technique

Under FUE technique we use Sapphire FUE and DHI (Direct Hair Implantation) FUE technique in our clinic.

SAPPHIRE FUE TECHNIQUE

The FUE technique which is considered one of the most modern and commonly used hair transplant techniques, ensuring natural-looking results, has carried its success one step further through the utilization of special devices with sapphire blades. FUE performed with sapphire blades is an innovation implementing a new process within the FUE method. The fact that it requires much more expertise, the number of hair experts performing this technique is few.

DHI (DIRECT HAIR IMPLANTATION) HAIR TRANSPLANT TECHNIQUE

There is also another technique called DHI used in hair transplants. In the DHI technique, the collected hair follicles are transplanted with a special device that is called Choi Implanter Pen. Therefore, people refer to the DHI technique as the CHOI pen technique.

Stages of DHI FUE
DHI Hair transplantation stages are very similar to FUE hair transplantation except for the site creation and graft implantation is performed simultaneously.

Consultation:
In this stage patient is physically examined. Expert determines the final hair transplantation plan and hairline design. After determining the area where hair transplantation is done, the hairline is drawn and the anesthesia stage is started.

Anesthesia:
Before anesthesia normally preparation step involves hair-cutting but in the DHI technique this is optional. The transplantation site is disinfected. Then, local anesthesia is administered either by needle or needleless. The needle-free injection system provides a wider and more stable spread than the local anesthetic application with the injector needle.

Extraction:
In this step, a device called micro motor is used to collect hair grafts. Unlike the other hair transplantation techniques, there is not a step involving canal opening. These grafts are immediately suitable for transplantation.

Implantation:
The hairs are placed and planted to the receiving site by the use of a CHOI Implanter Pen. This pen can both open the canal and transplants the hair. The operation takes 7-9 hours. But operation time may vary depending on the patient’s hair health and the size of the operation area.

Recovery:
The recovery time is very short after the DHI technique. Patients can continue their routine life after the operation. The results start to show after 6 months following the operation. Usually, the hair on top of the roots starts to fall off after 2 weeks to 2,5 months, and after 3 months the newly transplanted hair starts to grow.

Advantages of DHI Technique:
Faster recovery period
No scarring
High-density follicle transplantation
No shaving necessary

Disadvantages of DHI Technique:
Maximum 3,000 graft in a single session
Higher cost when compared to Sapphire technique
The operation takes longer when compared to Sapphire technique
