Hair transplantation is a growing medical tourism sector in Turkey, and every year the number of patients heading there to get beautiful hair is increasing.
DHI transplant technique which is an abbreviation of Direct Hair Implantation presents an exciting development in the field of hair implantation.
We are pleased to offer this method of hair transplantation to our patients who wish to remedy hair loss and increase their hair mass.
What is the DHI hair transplant (CHOI injector pen)?
The DHI Turkey technique is the flagship hair transplantation method. It is distinguished by the reimplantation of the hair bulbs without incisions on the recipient area.
When Follicular Unit Extraction was first implemented as a method of hair transplantation, the extraction and implantation of the graft was performed using simple hand tools.
The process was later sped up with the introduction of a machine known as a micromotor, which was used during both the extraction and reimplantation stages of the hair graft, hence the appearance of the DHI technique. .
This mechanical device has allowed surgeons to transplant a greater number of grafts through improved extraction of the hair implant and its direct reimplantation.
However, the micro motor has a number of drawbacks when used for graft implantation. Now, hair transplant surgeons are improving this crucial step even further by opting for a new type of instrument: the Choi pen.

How does Choi implanter pen work in DHI transplant?
The Choi implanter is a pen-shaped instrument with a hollow needle at one end. Operating room technicians begin by extracting grafts from the donor area, using the hollow end of the needle. The surgeon then uses the pen to implant the graft which loads it into the scalp.
This process is then repeated for each graft. During a typical transplant, the hair transplant surgeon and his team use approximately 6 pens interchangeably to optimize the time and pace of implantation.
What are the advantages of the DHI transplant technique
Using an implanter pen eliminates the need for root canal incisions in the thinning area of the scalp. Indeed, in the case of the FUE technique, the hair transplant experts would have to create tiny circular incisions on the scalp and plant the follicular units extracted from the donor area inside these channels.
Thanks to DHI hair transplantation, surgeons can now “inject” grafts directly into recipient areas. This decreases trauma and blood loss during the transplant.
As a result, by using the Choi implanter pen, our surgeons can now achieve a significantly higher graft survival rate post-transplant. In addition, less trauma means a shorter healing period for our patients.
It is also very beneficial that affected individuals do not have to shave their hair at the recipient area.
Results of DHI Hair Transplant in Turkey
A DHI hair transplant performed with a Choi implanter pen gives more satisfactory results. This is usually because the incisions created using blades from a DHI implanter pen heal faster and leave only a barely visible scar.
There is clear and compelling evidence that DHI hair transplantation ensures better aesthetic results, as the grafts can be positioned with greater precision during implantation.
After a hair transplant with the DHI method, it only takes about two months before the first newly implanted hairs start to grow.
What is the success rate of DHI Hair Transplant Turkey?
Hair transplant operations are a safe and permanent solution. The satisfaction rate of candidates who have had a DHI Turkey hair transplant with the right surgeon and the right clinic is between 90% and 95%.
