Hair Restoration – What Are Your Options?
When it comes to hair transplantation, you have three options. These are FUT, FUE, or DHI.
FUT or Follicular Unit Transplantation is the procedure in which a section of the scalp is removed and then stitched and divided under a microscope to create grafts. The grafts are then implanted by making recipient holes.
FUE or Follicular Unit Extraction is where actual follicular units (also known as grafts) are extracted. Once extracted, they are placed under a microscope to redivide them, reduce them, and multiply them. As with FUT, the hairs are then implanted by making recipient holes.
DHI or Direct Hair Implantation developed and patented by DHI Medical Group is where the follicles are extracted individually one by one and placed in the DHI implanter. Once they are removed, they are placed in a special solution that increases the survival rate of the grafts. This allows the follicles to have a success rate of 94-96%, the top percentage in hair restoration industry. Finally, using the DHI patented implanter, the hairs are implanted with the correct distribution level, angle, and direction under complete control of the doctor’s expert hand.
Its common knowledge that certain techniques are shared between these methods. For FUE and FUT, the implantation part is the same. Reception holes are made, and then the hairs are implanted inside the scalp using forceps. The problem with this is that this method provides limited control on the depth, direction, and angle of the implanted hairs, which leads to a less natural-looking result.
The DHI Technique is far more advanced. 50 years of technological research by top scientists at The DHI Medical Group has allowed us to practice the most advanced method of hair transplantation. Our technique allows our doctors to implant hairs directly into the scalp with extreme precision using our implanter that is just 1-2 millimeters in diameter.
The first and most crucial step of treating hair loss is a proper diagnosis.
Do you need DHI? Why do you need DHI? Can you qualify as a DHI patient?
Diagnosis is a Greek word meaning “through knowledge” which is the most important part of everything we do in life. With 50 years of experience, The DHI Medical Group’s industry expertise has enabled us to develop a comprehensive, sophisticated and advanced diagnostic system. Hair loss is a systemic disorder and thus requires a systematic approach using Trichology, Dermatology & Psychology. We are proud to have experts in each of these fields working within The DHI Medical Group and offering their services to our patients.
How does our diagnosis work?
Our team will examine you carefully, then based on your examination results, they will inform you of the best treatment plan for you. This will be based on your expectations and the result that can be achieved, such as the number of grafts/hairs that are possible for us to extract and how much coverage and density it can give you.
The DHI Academy has developed proper SOPs (Standard Operating Procedures) and training programs in association with esteemed European Universities to train, certify & evaluate doctors and nurses. In fact, every single staff member is now trained and certified by the DHI Academy. We use this training to give the most accurate diagnosis possible and ensure great natural results.
The next question you should ask: How many grafts do I need, and how much will it cost?
Cost is an obvious factor when choosing the solution to your hair loss problems, and as a result, many people might choose the cheapest options available. However, that is a decision which should be made after you have had a comprehensive, informative, and trustworthy diagnosis by a medical professional, which is often not the case. We understand cost is a factor and offer 0% interest finance options at many of our clinics; you just need to check with your local DHI team.
If you are unable to visit your local clinic, DHI has now developed a system that can be done online. It is a distance diagnostic program where patients are examined and discuss their concerns with a team of experts. This is called an online diagnosis, and this service is available to all patients.
Last but not least! Before making your decision, you can talk with some of our patients who have already undergone treatment with us. Here at DHI, we believe in total transparency and we are happy to offer you a list of patients in your area to enable you to speak to them about their experience and what to expect.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
