In the past decade, the world of hair transplant changed a lot –thanks to the technology. As technology evolves, it seems like the world of hair transplant was also keeping up with the pace.
Unlike ten years ago, now we’re seeing more and more people having hair transplants. This procedure is no longer reserved for the affluent and celebrities. In fact, celebrities – Wayne Rooney and John Travolta – who publicly admitted to having had a hair transplant were case studies that indicated that this procedure is actually effective.
Among the many techniques being used to perform hair transplant today is Direct Hair Implantation (DHI).

To help you understand it, you can think of DHI as a hair transplant technique that involves transplanting hair follicles one by one directly to the bald or thinning area of the head thanks using a patented pen-like tool.
If you’re considering having a DHI hair transplant, we highly recommend having it Estepalace. We do not favor Estepalace because it’s an award-winning hair transplant clinic but because of the expertise of its doctors and success rate at that clinic.
Having said that, let’s take a look at the top 8 things you need to know before undergoing a DHI hair transplant.
What is the Success Rate of DHI Hair Transplant?
When comparing hair transplants to other hair restoration methods such as the over-the-counter products, there’s no doubt that the surgical procedure has more effect and a high success rate. When you have a DHI hair transplant, you should expect to see 10 to 80% of transplanted hair growing in four months. DHI hair transplant has a success rate of 100%.
Does the DHI Hair Transplant Have Risks?
Just like any other kind of cosmetic or medical procedure, the DHI hair transplant also comes with its own set of possible side effects. These include:
- Swelling and bruising
- Numbness or lack of sensation on the treated areas of the scalp
- Inflammation or infection of the hair follicles (folliculitis)
One of the reasons we recommend having a hair transplant at Estepalace is because the clinic has specialists who are skilled in minimizing any of the above risks. Being able to minimize side effects earned Estepalace different international and domestic awards.
What is the Duration of the DHI Hair Transplant?
Depending on the amount of hair follicles to be transplanted, it usually takes between 6 and 8 hours to complete the DHI hair transplant. But as you may know, this may differ from one patient to the other.
How Long Does it Take to Recover from DHI Hair Transplant?
Generally, most of the people usually return to work after two or five days post-surgery. In 6 to 9 months, the results of your hair restoration will be visible.
Who is the Ideal Candidate for DHI?
Not everyone is an ideal candidate for DHI hair transplant. Consider yourself a suitable candidate if you have any of the listed characteristics:
- Men who have hair loss caused by male pattern baldness
- Men who are classified as a Norwood Scale Class 3 or above
- Women, as well as men who wish to thicken their hair
- Men who want beard transplantation
This procedure is not recommended for patients who do not have enough donor sites.
What Shall I Expect After a DHI Hair Transplant?
As highlighted earlier on, the way this procedure is performed may differ from one individual to another. But generally, after having a DHI hair you can expect the following to start happening:
- In your first week after the surgery, you may experience minor swelling and discomfort. Don’t panic, these are all okay and expected.
- In your second week after hair transplant you may notice some redness in the donor and implanted area which is also normal and will disappear soon.
- About 3 weeks after DHI treatment, you may notice the temporary loss of implanted hair. This is quite normal and expected.
- After 3-4 months of the DHI hair transplant you will realize that implanted hair is growing slowly. Whole process of growing can take up to 16 months.
Is DHI Hair Transplant Painful?
During the procedure, you are more likely not to feel any sort of pain because your doctors would have given you local anesthesia. But soon after the procedure is done, you may feel discomfort or soreness. But the discomfort will be handled by the meds that the surgeon will prescribe to you after the surgery.
Does DHI Hair Transplant Leave a Scar?
This is probably one of the frequently asked questions by patients who are considering the DHI hair transplant. Well the answer is a big NO. When performed by hair transplants specialists (such as the team at Estepalace), DHI technique leaves no visible scars in both the donor and implanted area
