Leading to complexes and which can become a real handicap in the daily life of those affected, hair loss fortunately finds several solutions. With the evolution of medicine, surgeons are now able to offer lasting , painless and undetectable solutions to remedy this.

“Gentle” methods to remedy hair loss
Although hair loss mostly affects men, it does not spare women. It can be the cause of real discomfort and a loss of confidence that have serious consequences. Faced with this reality, sufferers turn to several solutions to stem hair loss .
While some can provide satisfactory results over time, however, they largely show a lack of effectiveness when the problem is of genetic or possibly hormonal origin. Modern hair transplant techniques are thus a more suitable response for people suffering from baldness .
The different hair transplant techniques
Hair transplantation is a cosmetic surgery operation which consists of having hair taken from a so-called donor part implanted. Usually the follicles are removed from the occiput (the base of the skull), an area insensitive to testosterone that is largely responsible for alopecia. The implantation of the hair is then done at the level of the bald areas in order to find a natural look and volume.
The FUT method by strips: now to be avoided
Hair surgery calls for different hair transplant techniques which have evolved over the years. Thus, it is possible to use the method of the strip or hair by hair. The first, also called FUT for follicular unit transplantation was previously the most used. It is carried out by taking a strip at the level of the skull which will then be cut out before being implanted in the bald area . This method, however, has the disadvantage of leaving a scar where the hair follicles are extracted. It therefore gave way to two more revolutionary methods. The FUE technique or collection of single grafts and the DHI also called the Choi method.
The FUE method: a good compromise provided you are patient
With this process, the surgeon takes a sample of the hair follicles individually . The graft is then reimplanted in the bald spot using a needle . It can be used to regain hair in the eyebrows, beard and even eyelashes. It is particularly suitable for masking the marks of accidents or post-operative scars.
The FUE hair transplant operation requires the patient to be put under local anesthesia. It has many advantages including leaving no scars and recovering quickly. It also offers a more qualitative rendering of the hair compared to the FUT method. Finally, it allows you to obtain more volume in the area affected by hair loss and more lasting results.
However, the FUE method has some disadvantages. The results are not immediately visible . The hair tends to fall out, only to grow back after about 2 months. Moreover, since it is a unitary extraction, the operation takes much longer . Finally, it is not possible to take a large number of grafts.
The DHI method: the most expensive, but the most effective
This technique is the most recent practiced by surgeons. It is absolutely painless because it is accompanied by anesthesia. The DHI method offers better hair preservation over the years. It is done by taking into account prognoses on aging . Indeed, the genetic component makes it possible to visualize the progression of hair loss and to define the number of grafts to be implanted.
The DHI method is also called Choi method from the name of the tool used to perform the operation. It is also done individually with the additional advantage of a more harmonious and natural growth without reception holes. This technique places special emphasis on the angle of the follicles and the depth of implantation. It allows a very fast recovery and without shaving the receiving area. This is why many celebrities have opted for this solution!
Nevertheless, this technique must be practiced by a seasoned professional trained in the DHI implantation method. It requires great concentration on the part of the surgeon and a long time to be performed. It is also the most expensive hair surgery operation .
In summary: what to choose between FUE and DHI?
To make the best choice, you will first need to consider your budget . Indeed, each of the two modern methods of hair implantation achieves optimal results. The DHI method, however, gives a more natural and long-lasting effect. This explains why the latter is more expensive. This is followed by the amount of volume you want to achieve and the constraints on how long different operations will take .
