DHI Hair Transplantation

Direct hair implantation (DHI) is a modification of the FUE technique.

In FUE, a surgeon manually cuts channels in your scalp before implanting hair follicles. During DHI, they use a specialized pen-shaped tool that can do both at the same time.

Here’s what you can generally expect during the procedure:

  • Your surgeon will shave your head and apply local anesthesia to numb it.
  • The surgeon will extract hair follicles from the back of your head using a toolwith a fine tip.

  • The hair follicles will be loaded into a pen-shaped tool and implanted into the balding part of your scalp.
  • The surgeon will apply an antibiotic cream and apply a bandage to all sites.

Duration: DHI surgeries generally take about 8 hours to complete, but the exact time can vary depending on the number of hair follicles being transplanted.

It can take 12 to 18 months to see the full results of the surgery.
