DHT/DHI (Direct Hair Transplant/Implant)

DHT (Direct Hair Transplant) and DHI (Direct Hair Implantation) are advanced techniques used in hair transplantation. They are both variations of the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) method, which involves the extraction of individual hair follicles from the donor area and their transplantation into the recipient area.

DHT (Direct Hair Transplant): DHT is a technique in which the extracted hair follicles are immediately transplanted into the recipient area without any significant delay. The harvested grafts are sorted, prepared, and placed directly into the recipient area using specialized implanters or forceps. This immediate implantation helps to preserve the viability and survival rate of the hair follicles.

DHI (Direct Hair Implantation): DHI is a more specialized version of DHT that involves the use of a Choi pen or implanter pen. The Choi pen is a device with a hollow needle that allows for precise placement of the hair follicles into the recipient area. With DHI, the implantation process is more controlled, as the pen creates tiny incisions and simultaneously inserts the grafts, ensuring minimal trauma to the recipient area.

Both DHT and DHI offer certain advantages over traditional FUE techniques:

  1. Reduced graft handling: With immediate placement of grafts, there is minimal time outside the body, reducing the risk of damage to the follicles.

  2. Precise placement: The use of specialized implanters in DHI allows for more accurate and controlled placement of grafts, resulting in better density and natural-looking results.

  3. Faster procedure: DHT and DHI techniques can be faster compared to traditional FUE, as there is no need to create recipient sites separately before graft placement.

It’s important to note that the success of any hair transplant technique depends on various factors, including the skill and experience of the surgeon, the quality and availability of donor hair, and the individual’s specific hair loss condition. Not everyone is a suitable candidate for DHT or DHI, and it’s essential to consult with a qualified hair transplant surgeon to determine the most appropriate technique for your unique circumstances. They can evaluate your condition and provide personalized advice on the best approach for your hair restoration goals.
