There are different hair transplant option in the medical field. So, every patient wants to have the best hair transplant procedure. In fact, FUE hair transplant and DHI hair transplant are considered as the best methods under current conditions
FUE Hair Transplantation as Best Hair Transplant Procedure
FUE hair transplantation is one of the best hair transplant procedure. This method is often preferred during the sowing process because it does not leave any marks. All planting is carried out in two stages: hair graft collection and hair graft transplantation.
First, the doctor examines the patient’s hair loss level and hair characteristics. The number of hair grafts needed is then determined. Hair graft consists of hair follicles. A graft can have between 1 and 3 hair follicles. The number of hair follicles in a graft varies depending on the individual’s hair characteristics. The number of hair follicles in the graft determines the number of hairs to grow in the area to be transplanted.
In the first stage of the operation, hair grafts are collected using special micro motor devices. In the second stage, special channels are opened in the area to be sown. Surgical scalpels (Slit seeding method) can be used during the grooving process, as well as special diamond-tipped scalpels (Sapphire seeding method). The doctor decides which method to follow. The hair grafts collected from the donor area are placed in opened canals.
DHI Hair Transplantation
DHI hair transplantation is also known as the CHOI pen method. And this is the other best hair transplant procedure. Unlike the FUE method, there is no need for incision in the scalp when transplanting the hair grafts. Sowing is carried out with the help of special needles. This device, called the CHOI pen, collects and sews hair grafts.
Similar to the FUE method, local anaesthesia is applied to the patient before the operation. In DHI method, there is no need for channels. However, since this operation requires more attention, the total operation time may be longer than the FUE method.
After the hair follicles are collected, sowing takes place in as little as 1-2 minutes. Roots are less damaged because they spent less time outside the scalp. However, the total number of grafts that can be applied in this method is limited up to 2000 hair grafts. Because of this, this method may not be preferred in people with severe hair loss or large bald areas.
