The procedure for DHI is similar to that of FUE hair implantation. In order to restore hair growth in balding areas of your head, your surgeon will remove hair follicles from one area of your scalp, usually the back of your head. There is an eventual growth of new hair from these follicles.

In comparison with less sophisticated hair transplant techniques, DHI achieves up to twice the germination rate. In the case of DHI, 90% of implanted hair follicles are guaranteed to grow.

Candidates for A DHI Hair Transplant in Turkey

Fortunately, most of our patients can undergo DHI using this advanced technology. Before undergoing a procedure, you should tell your doctor about any underlying health conditions you may have. Following are the factors that make for a good candidate for a DHI hair Transplant.

  • Androgenic alopecia: This is the most common type of hair loss and makes for the best candidates for a DHI hair transplant.
  • Hair Density: People with good hair density are good candidates for a DHI hair transplant.
  • Scalp Laxity: A person with high scalp flexibility will be a better candidate than those who have low scalp flexibility.
  • Trauma: Someone who suffers hair loss due to trauma, that causes scarring or burns to the hair follicles.
  • Patterned baldness: Both men and women who suffer from patterned baldness are good hair transplant candidates.
  • Age: If a person is over the age of 25 years will be a good candidate. Waiting a few years to get a hair transplant would have prevented the need for a second procedure if the hair transplant was done before the age of 25.
  • Thinning and patchy Hair: If a person is suffering from thinning or patchy hair would be considered a good candidate for a DHI hair transplant.
  • Follicle Density: People with a density of 40 Follicles per square metre are great candidates.

How Does the DHI Hair Transplantation Procedure Work?

The procedure will take place in one of the top-rated chosen clinics in Turkey. With IdealofMeD your DHI hair transplant will be done by professional doctors. Only the best and the latest top-of-the-range technology will be used. The procedure is quick and painless. The use of soft anaesthesia is used to eliminate any discomfort during the procedure. The approximate procedure time is 5 to 6 hours.

An extraction device is first used to extract hair follicles from the donor area. The plantation area is then angled to the most appropriate angle, usually a 40 to a 45-degree angle.

Firstly, the surgeon will apply anaesthesia to numb the area. Each hair follicle will be extracted one by one from a specific area, usually the back of the head, before being implanted. The hair follicles will be implanted into the target area directly after the extraction. The doctor will collect the maximum required amount of hair follicles that are needed for the related areas.

The Ice DHI Method Option

The Ice or frozen method is not a new hair transplant method, but rather a new approach to the way the hair follicles are stored and treated between the harvest and the transplant stage.

The hair is placed in transplanting containers after the surgeon has properly selected the hair and retrieved the follicles from the donor area. The liquid in which the hair is submerged is kept at a very low temperature. The solution that the transplanted hair is kept in contains vitamins, biotin, and antioxidants in addition to helping to improve and preserve their health. The therapy that the hair grafts get during the Ice hair transplant greatly increases their chance of survival.

You could be a candidate for this method. Your IdealofMeD surgeon will discuss this method will you and see if it will be beneficial for you.
