DHI hair transplant means “Direct Hair Transplantation”. In this method, a medical pen called choi, which should be used only by experts, is used. Thanks to this pen, your doctor collects grafts. Then, thanks to this pen, it directly places the hair follicles it has taken into your skin without opening an incision or channel. Thanks to the implanter pen used in the application, transplantation is completed in two stages.
It is possible to perform the channel opening and graft operations at the same time. The implanter pen preferred during the procedure has a cylindrical and very thin structure. In this way, it allows the hair to be inserted into the needle by driving through the channels. It is known that this method is the most practical method.
There are some issues that you should pay attention to before DHI hair transplantation application. In this way, both the planted roots will be able to hold on in a healthy way and the region where the roots collect will be able to heal quickly. Do not smoke from 2 days before the procedure. Do not drink alcohol from 3 days before the procedure.
Aspirin and other blood thinners should not be used 10 days in advance. The shortening of your hair before the operation will be done in our clinic. You should wash your hair with a shower before coming to the procedure in the morning. Be careful not to leave your head in the sun from about 2 weeks in advance, especially in summer. It is very important that your head is not tanned and that you are not sunburned. Wear loose clothes when it comes to processing.
When patients are informed about what needs to be considered after DHI hair transplantation, the process proceeds more efficiently. Do not consume substances such as coffee or cigarettes immediately after the procedure. Protect your scalp from trauma. Do not allow water to touch your scalp until your first wash. Avoid activities that will cause you to sweat excessively. You can use accessories such as hats a week after the procedure. Sleep in the supine position with your head slightly up.
Do not put pressure on your scalp with a towel when drying your hair. If you are going to apply serum, cream, etc. to your hair, consult your doctor for this.

We do not recommend that you return to your country immediately after this procedure. After hair transplantation, the first washing process is performed. This is usually done 3 days after the procedure. The first washing is done by your doctor or the experienced nurse in the clinic. Therefore, you need to stay in Turkey during this period. However, if you need to return immediately, your doctor will give you detailed information. When you return to your country, you need to follow your doctor’s recommendations.
Patients are usually in Turkey on the morning of the operation. But it is more convenient for you to be here the day before the procedure. Your operation preparations are easily made in a wider time frame in this way.
DHI is a method of the FUE technique performed with an implanter. In this technique, unlike FUE, hair follicles taken from the donor area are transplanted into the area to be transplanted without opening a channel with the implanter. The healing rate is shorter in the DHI technique, and the possibility of bleeding is also very low.
The hair collected from the donor area does not grow back. This zone remains sparse. The absence of hair follicles on the neck, which are proportionally removed from the donor area to be removed, is not noticed from the outside.
In this technique, there is no scar because no incision is made. Therefore, it is one of the most preferred methods.
Two techniques are widely applied in Turkey. These are hair transplantation techniques with DHI and FUE methods. Both techniques have different advantages. After your doctor explains them to you in detail, you can decide which one is more suitable for you.
After hair transplant, your sleeping position should be on your back. You need to sleep with your head slightly held up. With it, you can use a neck pillow. This way, you can keep your head in the same position while sleeping.
One week after the procedure, you can store your hair transplantation area with accessories such as hats, shawls, etc. that your doctor will recommend.
A month after the procedure, you can lightly touch your scalp. Avoid hard moves for the first three months.
Doctors report that the optimal age range for hair transplantation is between 30-40 years. According to the results obtained from the procedures, it was seen that more permanent results were obtained in patients in this age range.
The first seven days are a critical period. But then you can become a little more comfortable. One week after the procedure, the grafts are placed in their places. However, we still recommend that you be sensitive to your trading area for the first month. You need thirty days for the grafts to fully fall into place. A wrong move during this time may cause the grafts to dislodge.
After a DHI hair transplant, your doctor will give you a detailed explanation about your sleeping position, eating and drinking habits, activities, and care for the procedure area. You need to follow your doctor’s recommendations during this process. In this way, you can accelerate your healing process and achieve more successful results.
