What is the difference between FUE and DHI hair transplant processes?
FUE technique is used in our clinic to collect grafts in two hair transplantation methods, and grafts are collected one by one through micro motors from the area (donor area) and there are no scars after the procedure. During FUE method, it is necessary to open the holes where these grafts are placed in the area to be implanted.
For this, very small cutters are used. In the area to be planted, these small cutters are drilled depending on the number of grafts necessary to be planted. Then, grafts are inserted into these holes one by one with a special tool. In order for the grafts to be placed in these holes, the micro-holes must be slightly larger than the grafts.
The grafts collected in the DHI technique are placed with an individual implanter tool (CHOI-PEN).
We do not recommend the DHI as it does not give the same results as FUE.
Which option is more effective?
Organic Hair Transplantation is the most effective option.
Stem cell-rich liquid prepared from the patient’s own fat tissue is injected to the transplantation area. This way, we avoid chemical injections that damage the follicles in conventional during hair transplantation procedure. Healthy hair follicles collected from the donor site are transferred to the hairless area by a surgeon.
Advantages of Organic Hair Transplant:
- Transplant area is rendered efficient.
- Hair transplant procedure becomes easier
- Enables non-chemical work
- Feeds the newly transferred hair follicles and increases their adherence rate.
- Provides up to 96% successful results in the hair transplant procedure.
- Facilitates the growth of more lively, healthier and longer-lasting hair.
Organic Hair Transplant provides very important advantages at that point. Stem cell-rich fat injection prepared from patient’s own fat makes hair transplantation easier and leads to a healthier scalp in the hairless area.
Is DHI less painful than FUE?
It is the same level of pain as both hair transplantations should be performed under sedation.
Which option is more preferable among patients?
FUE or Organic Hair Transplantation.
