Hair loss in both men and women can be the result of heredity, hormonal changes, medical conditions, or a normal part of the aging process. Anyone can lose hair on their head, but it’s more common in men. Baldness typically refers to excessive hair loss from the scalp. Heredity hair loss with age is the most common causes of baldness.

Through hair transplantation procedures, medical science in the last two decades has made huge strides, not only human hair restoration, but in providing balding men and women with a renewed sense of pride, joy, and self-confidence.

A hair restoration procedure involves removing hair from the “donor” area, usually at the back and both sides of the head. And transplanting them to the scalp where the hair has stopped growing. The behavior of transplanted hair is like the behavior of hair from where they originated.

There are two types of hair transplants DHI and FUE which are currently being used all over the world. The differences between them are the method by which the hair is extracted and transplanted. Deciding which transplant is right for you can be determined during your clinic consultation.

What is FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) Procedure:

FUE hair transplant surgery is a very popular today and is preferred by many patients. It leaves no visible marks and provides natural looking results.

In this procedure groups of 1-4 hair follicles, commonly known as grafts, are manually removed one by one and placed in a storage solution. Then, when the extraction phase is completed, the surgeon opens the channels using micro blades also called Sapphire blades. These channels opened are the holes or slits where grafts are placed. After the channels are opened, the surgeon removes the grafts from the solution and implants in the recipient’s bald area.

Patients who have completed FUE hair transplant surgery may notice the first results about two months after the transplant. On the other hand, for more noticeable growths, it usually becomes more noticeable after six months and full results usually appear 12-18 months after the procedure.

The most obvious advantages of FUE hair transplantation are faster recovery time and less discomfort since there are no stitches. For this reason, FUE hair transplantation is the more preferred procedure because it promises better results, less pain/discomfort, no scarring and more effect. Fue hair transplantation can last a lifetime. The most important point in hair transplantation is to maintain the characteristics of donor hair follicles and ensure healthy growth.

What is DHI (Direct Hair Implant) procedure:

DHI hair transplant surgery is a newer procedure compared to FUE and is similar to the FUE technique, that is, it does not leave a scar after the surgery and provides a natural appearance. The difference between these two procedures is that although the graft removal process of DHI is similar to FUE, there are a few differences that should be noted.

The hair follicles are removed one by one using a specialist tool with a diameter of 1mm or less. These hair follicles are loaded into an implant device known as the Choi Implanter Pen and implanted them directly into the recipient area. During the DHI procedure, the creation of the channels and the implantation are completed at the same time. With Choi Implanter Pen, it gives more sensitivity to the doctor while implanting the hair follicles. At the same time, it provides more comfortable control of the angle, direction and depth of the newly transplanted hair. Also, recovery time for DHI is similar to FUE. It usually takes 12-18 months for full results to appear.

During FUE, a surgeon manually cuts a series of channels in your scalp to place hair follicles. DHI technique is a procedure that helps surgeons make these incisions and also transplant hair.

Which procedures are right for Me:

The DHI procedure is a newer procedure compared to FUE, and DHI is usually recommended for patients younger than 40 years of age. The reason for this is that hair loss in individuals under the age of 40 is not very advanced and the success rates of these cases are much higher compared to other age groups. The FUE procedure is a surgery that is considered safe with minor possible side effects such as small white scars from which the follicles are removed. Although it is not observed very often in the FUE procedure, infection or tissue death may occur at the site of the surgery. On the other hand, the maximum number of grafts we implant with DHI surgery is 4000. The DHI Hair Transplantation method also allows you to determine the direction and dimensions of hair growth according to your preference, and the other advantage of DHI is that it does not require canal drilling. The FUE method can be preferred as it covers larger areas than the DHI method, and the DHI method is a process that provides a good rate to obtain higher density. They stated that according to the recommendations of the experts, the success rate of both FUE and DHI reached 95%. This proves that whichever procedure you want to have, both procedures are extremely safe.
