FUE and DHI Methods
FUE and DHI are the most popular hair transplantation methods. FUE is the most preferred among hair transplant methods. The operation starts with the collection of grafts taken from the nape area one by one together with their follicles. FUE hair transplantation technique is performed with a micro motor or manual punch device. In this technique, it is done without incision or stitches without leaving any scar. One session usually lasts 6-9 hours and can be repeated 1-2 times when needed. It can be easily applied to men or women who have baldness problems.

In the operation performed without incision, there is a rapid recovery in the patient. It is the more transplantation process that decreases less than the FUE technique. DHI hair transplant technique is a more laborious and long operation. With DHI transplantation, beard and hair transplantation will be performed and more precise results are obtained.
The operation is performed with a pen-like apparatus, the canal is opened and the roots are placed. Its biggest advantage is that it is planted more frequently and in more areas. Although no pain is felt, the doctor can apply local anesthesia depending on the person’s request. The DHI technique gives good results in hair tightening processes. Although the DHI hair transplant method is costly, it is recommended by experts often.
