DHI Hair Transplant Istanbul

Whether cosmetic preferences or health concerns, hair loss is a condition that men struggle with across the world. Hair transplant surgery in Istanbul is a rapidly growing industry where technological and medical innovations are making the advancement of hair transplantation — and results much more distinct and extraordinary. Hair transplant surgery has grown in popularity, especially over the last few years. As it is now a widespread procedure, hair loss treatment has become accessible to a broader range of people.

The most recent advancement of DHI (Direct Hair Implantation) Istanbul is regarded as an advanced follicular transplantation method. With the skills of certified surgeons and the latest medical equipment, the DHI procedure guarantees a natural-looking hairline, providing a density as much as possible. Lead HTI surgeon, Dr. Cengiz Yaylaci, and his team in Istanbul arrange everything from airport transfers to hotel accommodations and hotel-to-clinic transfers. Hair Transplant Istanbul is Turkey’s leading hair transplant clinic for DHI.

What is DHI Hair Transplant?

DHI (Direct Hair Implantation) Istanbul is one of the most researched and popular hair transplant methods in Istanbul. DHI is a customized version of FUE hair implantation. This method removes hair follicles from a part of your scalp, typically the back of your head, and implants them into balding areas — to create new hair growth. DHI surgery is a newer procedure that does not leave a scar after the surgery and provides a natural appearance.

Understanding the Tool: What is an Implanter Pen?

An implanter pen is a device used to place a follicular unit graft. It is a hollow pen-like tool featuring a needle and a spring-loaded plunger apparatus. The needle is wide enough to fit a follicular unit graft inside. The pen was developed as an alternative approach to follicular hair transplantation with the intention of speeding up the process. Once loaded with hair follicles, the pen inserts hair follicles into the recipient area when the plunger is pressed. Gaining control over the spacing and direction of each implant, your HTI surgeon guides the pen with the utmost precision and speed, which allows the use of multiple grafts at once.

Candidates of DHI Hair Transplant

DHI in Istanbul is commonly aimed at the following individuals:

  • Men who have advanced hair loss since they require a higher number of grafts.
  • Men who have been struggling with male pattern baldness for at least five years.
  • Men with no reaction to medical treatments.

If your hair loss condition stems from any kind of trauma such as burns or injuries, schedule a FRRE consult to learn the effects of the DHI (Direct Hair Implantation) procedure and its capabilities on covering scars. We also take into consideration medical history as a critical factor in determining your candidacy for DHI.

DHI (Direct Hair Implantation) Procedure

Before the surgery, your surgeon will draw the new hairline on your head based on the pre-determined plans and the goal of DHI. The next step is the injection of long-lasting local anesthesia on the donor site. While general anesthesia is usually not required, you may request a sedative to become more comfortable, since it is a quite time-consuming process.

The surgeon will start the extraction process — manually using an extractor device. As the hair is extracted from the donor area, it will be immediately implanted into the recipient site. Skipping the incision step, the surgeon will load the pen with the extracted hair follicles, and directly implant them into your scalp, according to the pre-defined treatment plan. The placement of the hair follicles is completed with maximum attentiveness and requires a precise direction and angle of 40 to 45 degrees.

Following your surgery, you will be informed on what kind of an aftercare routine you should follow on the instructions of your surgeon. You will be given all kinds of necessities required for a post-op period such as shampoos and medications.

Benefits of DHI Hair Transplant

Since there is no requirement for any incision, DHI (Direct Hair Implantation) provides a complete scarless appearance, unlike most other transplantation techniques (FUT causes an unpleasant linear scar; FUE may bring about tiny round scars where the hairs are extracted). DHI Istanbul is performed with a method of aligned distribution — so scarring does not occur.

Taking advantage of the implanter tool, DHI provides perfect control of angle, direction and depth of the hair follicles being implanted — which provides complete management of each implant and the most natural-looking results possible.

One of the most prominent benefits of the DHI is that it provides a much more superior level of viability in terms of hair follicles since the time they remain out of the scalp is much shorter than the other techniques. The efficient nature of the procedure makes DHI an extremely safe technique for the follicles’ health, with a survival rate of more than 90 percent.

When Can I Expect to See Visible Results?

While we understand the desire for quick results as it is a cosmetic condition, it is crucial to have realistic expectations. The results of the DHI Istanbul do not occur immediately, as visible hair growth is expected to occur five to six months after the procedure.
