DHI Hair Transplant

Since DHI (Direct Hair Implantation) hair transplantation can be performed without shaving the entire head, it is particularly advantageous for women.  It is a non-scarring and painless method.


It is applied with medical pens known as “Choi” implanters. Grafts, i.e. hair follicles, are inserted into these pens. Then they are implanted directly in the recipient area.

In classical hair transplantation techniques channel opening and implantation are done separately. However, in the DHI hair transplantation method, the channels are not opened, and the grafts are transplanted directly into the skin of the scalp. This prolongs the survival time of the grafts, increases the success of hair transplantation, and provides comfort to the patient.

This operation does not harm the existing hair, and it creates a natural and intense appearance in the long run.

After the DHI hair transplant procedure is performed, the person can resume his/her daily life in a short time.

How is DHI Hair Transplant done?

Local anesthesia is applied to the area where the grafts will be collected.

grafts are collected manually.

Afterwards, they are inserted into the DHI pens and implanted directly into the recipient area.

The Choi pen is thin and pointed. However, it is possible to place hair follicles in it. Behind it is a special zone. When pressed here, the graft contained in it is transferred to the scalp. The spring mechanism of the pen pushes the tip. Thus, the pen pierces the skin and puts the graft in.


DHI Hair Transplant Advantages

  • It does not harm healthy hair and skin tissues.
  • There is no scar after the operation.
  • After the graft extraction is completed, the grafts are placed directly without waiting. Thus, the chance of retention increases, and root loss is minimized.
  • DHI hair transplantation technique does not cause damage to existing hair. For this reason, it can also be applied to patients with ongoing hair loss.
