Choosing which type of hair transplant technique is right for you can be difficult. There is a lot of terminology out there which can cause many patients to feel confused.
One of the biggest confusions out there currently regarding Hair Transplant procedures and techniques is DHI. What is it, how does it work and what is the difference?
Firstly, we must start with saying that overall, there are only two methods when it comes to extracting hair from the donor area and those are FUT (Follicular unit transplant) and FUE (Follicular unit extraction. FUT involves removing a strip of hair from the donor area whereas FUE involves extracting singular follicles using a punch device.
There are pros and cons for all methods. Consultations with experienced and knowledgeable hair transplant surgeons are the best way to find out which technique is going to give you the best results.
FUE Hair transplant procedures is often the most commonly performed hair transplant technique in the UK, however a new technique known as a DHI hair transplant is starting to feature in some hair clinics price lists and within hair transplant forums. So what is it?
In this blog, we are going to take a look at what a DHI Hair Transplant is to help you feel more informed when it comes to choosing the best treatment for you.

What is a DHI Hair Transplant?

DHI stands for direct hair implantation and rather than being its own technique, we see DHI as more of a variation on the FUE technique. There are some differences from a traditional FUE procedure, but overall the process is very similar.

What does a DHI Hair Transplant involve?

Hair follicles are extracted from the donor area in the same way as they would be in a standard FUE procedure. A punch device is often used to extract follicular units with all the necessary fibres and glands. Punch devices can range in sizes from 0.6mm to 0.9mm which makes scarring minimal in comparison to the scarring as a result of a FUT Hair Transplant procedure.
Where the DHI technique differs slightly to a standard FUE technique is that once all the grafts have been extracted from the donor area, they are then prepared and placed into a hair transplant implanter pen. There are lots of different types of these pens available with the most commonly used being the choi implanter pen and lion implanter pen.
The implanter pen works by creating the incision in the area of the scalp being treated and placing the hair transplant into the incision at the same time.

What are hair implanter pens, and should they be used?

Hair Implanter pens are not new, they were originally invented back in the 1980s in Japan. They were first used with FUT procedures with the idea of reducing the number of technicians required. As the skills of hair transplant surgeons and their technicians grew, the requirements for assistant devices reduced. In the mid 2000’s, implanter pens began to make a come-back, this time being combined with FUE procedures with surgeons in Europe experimenting with graft placing using an implanter pen rather than forceps. It was believed that extra handling of the grafts during placement were leading to poor results, so the ‘no-touch’ technique of handling hair follicles was put to the test. The results were inclusive with no technique coming out on top either way, instead it was merely just a separate way to carry out a FUE Hair Transplant procedure should the method be suitable for the patient.
Whether a hair transplant implanter pen should be used or not is down to the surgeon using the pen. A huge issue that has become apparent is that a large number of poor results from hair transplant procedures using an implanter pen is a result of inexperienced staff and clinics.
A hair transplant procedure, no matter what method, should only be carried out by a trained and knowledgeable hair transplant surgeon and their experienced team of technicians.

What are the Differences Between DHI Hair Transplant Method and FUE Method?

The differences in method are just down to the tools used however at The Private Clinic, we do not offer separate ‘DHI’ and FUE Hair Transplant methods. We offer a FUE Hair Transplant procedure, and the method in which our expert hair transplant surgeons perform the FUE Procedure is down to their own personal preference and which they feel is going to be most suitable for the patient to give them the best result.
So in some instances, a FUE Hair Transplant with implanters may be used in procedures that do not require a large number of grafts. Implanters are best used on procedures that are around 2500 grafts and under.
Some of our hair transplant surgeons do use hair transplant hair implanter pens to implant the hair follicles and others will use forceps and incisions to transplant the extracted hair – many use both methods and you will be able to discuss their decision on which one they choose for your hair transplant procedure at your consultation.

At The Private Clinic we do not believe in charging separate amounts for different methods of implantation and you will notice that we don’t tend to refer to DHI as a hair transplant method. Our Hair Transplant prices are determined by the number of hair grafts required. Find out more about the costs of Hair Transplant procedures here.

Mustafa Yilmaz


My vision of hair transplantation is totally in line with this perspective: to be at the service of regained well-being through effective techniques that give natural results. The hair, in women of course, but in men, it is the force of life, it is the finery. Losing them is truly an injury, a trauma. It’s terrible!

Also, I enjoy listening to my patients and never judging them. I am then able to give them the best advice and allow them to regain their self-confidence.

I naturally surrounded myself with a caring, expert and extremely rigorous team in its field to be sure to offer men and women who suffer from baldness solutions that work, without ever ignoring safety and reliability.

The used techniques depend on Dr. Mustafa Yilmaz decision after doing the medical diagnosis, Choi Pen / DHI - Sapphire - Micro FUE are used normally in our operations.

Emine Karabash


I started dermatology almost 15 years ago now and thanks to my encounters with other dermatologists, I quickly turned to medical aesthetics.

More and more women and men want to feel good about their hair, and when this is the case, one gains confidence in oneself, in everyday life, in social life and in work.

I have also always remained "classic", in this movement that is now called the "Soft touch", namely to privilege discretion, elegance, and of course, naturalness. Not ostentatious! I prefer to repair what is damaged, rather than change or modify.

The used techniques depend on Dr Emine’s decision after doing the medical diagnosis, Choi Pen / DHI - Sapphire - Micro FUE are used normally in our operations.

Ayshe Yalchin

Before & After


Hair Transplantation & Methods


DHI Hair Transplant

The DHI hair transplantation method, which is called direct hair implant, is performed by implanting the follicles using a special tool with fine-tipped needles.

DHI Hair Transplant

The DHI hair transplantation method, which is called direct hair implant, is performed by implanting the follicles using a special tool with fine-tipped needles.

While performing this process, there is no incision or stitch scar at all. The purpose of this transplantation method is to minimize the time that the hair follicles stay outside and place the follicles with a good density and continuously.

Fue Hair Transplant

With the FUE method (Follicular Unit Extraction), the hair follicles are taken one by one with a special micro-motor and the aid of local anesthesia.

FUE Hair Transplant

With the FUE method (Follicular Unit Extraction), the hair follicles are taken one by one with a special micro-motor and the aid of local anesthesia; grafts are repositioned afterwards in the bald areas, according to the angle and the natural direction of hair growth.

Generally the donor area (the area from which the follicles are taken) is the back of the head. Since the nape follicles are genetically stronger and more resistant to shedding, this region is preferred as a donor area. However, if the area is not dense enough, grafts are collected from other parts of the body.

Sapphire Fue Hair Transplant

Although the Sapphire Fue hair transplantation method is not much different from other transplantation methods.

Sapphire Fue Hair Transplant

Although the Sapphire Fue hair transplantation method is not much different from other transplantation methods, with this technique the micro channels are opened by fine tips of sapphire, a precious stone.

On the contrary, in classical fue, the process is performed by metal slit. Likewise, after the follicles are taken one by one from the donor area, they are carefully placed according to the direction and angle of the hair.

Beard and Mustache

Beard and mustache transplantation is a procedure designed for those with a loss of beard or mustache.

Beard and mustache transplantation
