Direct Hair Implantation (DHI) procedure is performed under local anaesthesia, administered by an anaesthesiologist to ensure a smooth and painless hair transplant experience for our patients. At Zeeva, we also offer soft sedation options for our patients to provide utmost comfort.
The stages of a DHI Hair Transplant surgery can be summarised under two major parts:-Extraction (ie., obtaining hair follicles from a donor area) -Implantation (ie., implanting the obtained follicles with implanter pen into the scalp or other areas such as eyebrows, beard, or eyelashes).
When we make a comparison, such as DHI hair transplant vs FUE, one of the greatest advantages of DHI over classic FUE emerges to be the lack of need to perforate (ie., making incisions to create hair transplant channels where grafts are inserted) the skin in the recipient area. This minimizes the trauma and bleeding while ensuring a faster DHI hair transplant recovery time (around 5-7 days, as the scabbing falls off) and wound healing.
In classic FUE, grafts obtained need to be sorted and stored in a special solution while a hair transplant surgeon creates channels (known as hair transplant holes) by making small cuts. However, it is known that the time hair-bearing tissues spend outside the body may negatively influence the survival rate of follicles.
Addressing this problem, in DHI Choi pen hair transplants, once the grafts are obtained from the donor area, they are immediately loaded into the Choi implanter pen. At this point, it should be noted that the use of Choi pens provides better precision and accuracy for the hair transplant surgeon.
After this, the graft-bearing tip of the pen penetrates the skin to implant the hair follicles under the skin directly without damaging surrounding tissues. Minimizing the time hair follicles spend outside the scalp or any other donor area bolsters up the survival rate of grafts and helps patients achieve successful DHI hair transplant results at Zeeva Clinic.
Having to shave down their hair often emerges as a deterrent factor for people who have long hair when they plan to undergo a hair transplant. With the DHI hair transplant method, female hair transplant / long hair transplants are performed by shaving only a small part that can be hidden or covered by the rest of the patient’s hair.
Each hair transplant technique has different characteristics. You need to be very careful about which hair transplant technique you choose. There are big differences between them, and the results are not the same. Refer only to clinics that have extensive experience in treating hair loss. Ask to speak directly to their patients and see the results of their technique. The final decision must be made after careful consideration. The result of the hair transplant is permanent. Do not risk it based on cost.
During one session, thousands of hair follicles can be transplanted. Their survival rate depends on the technique you choose, the technical training of the doctor, and the postoperative course. The result of the hair transplant is permanent, and you will see it every day in your mirror. Before you decide, please research and choose the clinic that can guarantee you safety and a completely natural result.
When compared with cost of other hair transplant methods, DHI cost per graft may appear slightly higher due to the intensity of efforts/labour and expertise required for a successful operation. However, though DHI hair transplant price quotations are significantly higher in both European countries and the US, at Zeeva Clinic we offer affordable and exceedingly high-quality DHI Hair Transplant operations for patients around the world.
