What is DHI Hair Transplantation?

DHI hair transplantation is one of the most popular methods to treat hair loss. The most distinctive feature of the technique is the Choi pencil. Therefore, the  Choi method is another name for this technique. The Choi pencil has very fine, sharp tips. Thanks to these special pens, grooving and hair transplant are performed at the same time. Experts place the hair follicles one by one. Placing is an extremely delicate process. The doctor implants the hair follicles at an optimal 40-45 degree angle. Out of angle  Another important point is the right direction following the previous hairline.

DHI Hair Transplant Turkey

Turkey is one of the first countries in the world to perform hair transplant directly; It provides an excellent option for men and women experiencing severe hair loss. The DHI method gives the closest results to natural hair and also provides high-speed recovery. This method has become a preferred technique in Turkey as well. The DHI method has eliminated the troublesome process of hair transplantation.

DHI Hair Transplantation Costs

Direct hair transplant costs may be higher than a typical hair transplant. The main reason for this is the disposable pens used during the procedure. Precise placement of hair follicles on the pens without waiting requires more teamwork. Therefore, more technicians and nurses are needed for operations at DHI.


The DHI method also includes the use of the FUE method for the collection of grafts. In the DHI technique, grooving and placement of the grafts is performed simultaneously with the Choi special pens. These pens help to open the canal and position the hair follicle at the same time. In the FUE technique, a channel must also be opened. Since these channels are opened with a relatively wide blade, it causes a less frequent sowing compared to the DHI method.

One of the most important differences of the DHI hair transplant method is that it allows the hair to be transplanted without shaving. DHI hair transplantation is an effective method, especially in narrow areas. Since the transfer of hair follicles takes place within 1-2 minutes, hair follicles do not stay outside the body for a long time. This greatly reduces the possibility of possible damage to the hair follicles.
