The DHI Implantation Method & Choi Implanter Pen
Some define it as the newest method in hair transplantation, some say there is no ‘recognized’
technique called DHI, others claim that it is just a marketing gimmick, while a fraction explains the
method as; FUE with implanters.
The debate goes further, where the two methods at its simplest form stand out to be; ‘different ways to
harvest the grafts’ combined with ‘conducting different implanting procedures’.
However, our aim for this study is to remain objective and to have a brief and clear understanding on
how the procedure actually works.
Unlike the FUE method, during the DHI implantation method, site creation and graft implantation are
performed simultaneously, i.e. extraction and implantation are combined as part of a one or two step
process, embedding the extracted hair follicles directly into the receipt areas without the need of
creating channel incisions in the donor area via utilizing an implanter (choi) pen that features a hollow
needle connected to a tub and plunger device. This is why the DHI procedure is also referred as the Choi
A Complete Pain Relief Method in Hair Transplantation
Thanks to the use of sedation given under the direct supervision of our Anesthesiologist, you will no
longer feel any pain during the administration of local anesthesia prior to the hair transplant procedure.
As a consequence, you will be having a more comfortable and pain-free hair transplant experience. Even
though hair transplants are generally considered as painless procedures, this new method will help our
patients who suffer from needle phobia, to feel at ease, allowing them to relax during the procedure.
Owing to this, the level of pain that was currently at minimum is now completely eliminated.
What is Sedation?
Sedation is the action of producing a state of calm or sleep under controlled sedative drug
administration, monitoring the depth of sedation with the types of drugs used and the amount given
tailored specifically to each patient needs.
Do I Have to Receive Sedation?
Sedation is efficient and safe even in young children and as we previously mentioned, it assures the
patient a discomfort free hair transplant procedure with zero pain. But then again, we continue to offer
hair transplant procedures without sedation for patients who do not prefer. sedation to be
The DHI method procedure
1 During a hair transplant procedure operated with the Choi implanter, the specialized
physician/surgeon or technicians transmit the harvested grafts into the implanter pen.
The graft is inserted gently within the hollow needle, which is positioned at the end of the implanter
pen, to be handed back to the specialized physician.
2 Subsequently, the needle is inserted at an accurate angle of 40-45 degrees into the scalp by the
surgeon, as the incision site is made and then the graft is implanted by pressing down on the plunger.
3 During a procedure, normally an amount varying from 2-6 Choi implanters and approximately 15-16
needles are concurrently used, with the device coming in a variety of needle sizes to fit the follicular unit
The Choi method naturally has its advantages as well as its disadvantages over the FUE technique.
Advantages of DHI Technique
Among its advantages indicated by some hair restoration experts are as follows;
• Reduced time of grafts remaining outside the body, thus ensuring strong and healthy placement of the
• Adequate hair follicles survival rates.
• Reduced bleeding during the creation of the recipient area. Reduced trauma during graft handling,
thus leading to less damage in the blood supply to the implanted area.
• Fast recovery during the postoperative phase, the patient can return back to his/her normal routine
• The recipient site does not have to be shaved, as it is a more suitable procedure that enables this
Disadvantages of DHI Technique
On the other hand the disadvantages in comparison to the FUE method include;
• The physician and staff members are exposed to long-term training period so as to specialize in
utilizing this technique.
• It is generally a more costly procedure when compared to other hair transplantation methods.
• This method requires more attention as well as accuracy during the procedure.
• Due to the fact of the limitation of access to the operative area- this technique can cause the operator
stress, which could likely affect both the extraction as well as the implantation process, causing possible
damage while handling the grafts.
After mentioning the highlights of this special technique, we will make one final remark on this topic
through a question.
Are all candidates qualified to undergo this hair transplant surgery utilizing the Choi Implanter pen?
With the creation of this method by specialists at the Kyungpook National University in Korea, as the
Choi Implanter is generally considered the ‘original’ implanter pen device, experts operating within the
field started to conduct research so as to gain an in-depth understanding on this new
technique.According to the results of their studies, they had identified that not all people were ideal
candidates for utilizing the Choi implanter pen during the hair transplant surgery.
It was observed that the initial version of the Choi Implanter pen provided better results on Asian
patients with hair loss compared to other ethnicities. The experts that studied this phenomenon came
to the following conclusion: Asian people’s hair in general is distinguished with thick straight hair, and
the curly characteristics and thinner diameter of other races, makes it difficult to be loaded properly into
the implanter and place in the scalp, as the main sizes of the needles that were used in the early stages
ranged between 0.8-0.9 mm.
As a result, this may lead to inappropriate bend in the follicle, incorrect graft placement and an
excessive trauma for the follicles. Therefore, not all patients are ideal candidates for the utilization of
the Choi implanter pen during their hair transplant surgery. SIn opposition to the proposed findings,
some physicians disagreed with this statement, indicating that with increased training and experience
with the Choi implanter pen, effective graft placement with any type of hair characteristics could be
With scientific and technical advancements, hair restoration procedures has improved over the past
decade, reaching to a point where it is now possible to conduct hair transplant utilizing the Choi
Implanter pen with any kind of hair characteristics, creating a new era that produces consistent,
effective, predictable, safe but most of all natural-looking results.

well as its disadvantages over the FUE technique.

Hair Transplantation

FUE Hair Transplant Operation

Hair Transplantation at Universal Hair Clinic

Hair transplantation can be defined as ‘the permanent solution for hair loss’. A hair transplant operation can be expressed as; a microsurgical procedure that is performed in a hospital surgical setting. The concept ‘microsurgical operation’ implies that; a hair transplant procedure will be carried out with minimal surgical intervention unlike traditional surgery.

A hair transplant operation, is an effective and permanent solution for individuals experiencing ‘male-pattern baldness’ which is also referred to as androgenetic alopecia. Apart from these, individuals who have scars or have lost hair due to various kinds of hair diseases can also safely undergo a hair transplant surgery.

Hair mesotherapy is the injection of various medicines containing hair minerals and vitamins needed to
increase the blood circulation on the scalp. Mesotherapy is an additional method of improving and
controlling hair loss.
The purpose is to inject vitamins necessary to the scalp.
With mesotherapy, the vitamins that are missing from the hair follicles are given in small doses directly
into the hair follicle. It is expected that the effect will be achieved in a short time. Hair Mesotherapy can
be applied locally, stimulating cell metabolism in the desired region, stopping hair loss, increasing the
quality of existing hair and activating hair growth.
Mesotherapy can be beneficial for severe hair loss caused by metabolic problems and sudden hair loss
after pregnancy.
This procedure, which is performed by specialist surgeons, takes around 10-15 minutes. Sessions are
administered once a week. Depending on the degree of the hair loss, it lasts a total of 8 sessions. The
first 4 sessions are administered once a week and the remaining 2 sessions are administered every 30
days for the last 2 sessions every 15 days. Then the treatment is complete.
It is possible to see positive changes after 4 sessions. Whatever happens, every tissue benefits from
vitamins that increase oxygenation and stop aging. Hair follicles respond to the vitamins directly injected
into the scalp either by growing fast or expanding the diameter of the hair follicles.
The side effects are minimal compared to other methods, and the low cost of superficial intra-dermal or
subcutaneous administration enhances the active-bioavailability of the drug.
There are many types of drugs used in mesotherapy. It is important that these drugs are approved by
the AFDA (American Food and Drug Administration)
What to Expect after MESOTHERAPY?
Different type of medications used for hair growth in MESOTHERAPY.
Just a few weeks after first application improvement of hair is observed.
After six weeks, new hair begins to grow again in affected areas and become normal hair structure.
Applications should be repeated as advised by your doctor.
Indications of Scalp MESOTHERAPY
Male pattern hair loss (androgenetic alopecia ), early treatment is the most efficient process in men.
Traction Alopecia (hair loss due to traction or pulling)
Alopecia areata (Sycosis Vulgaris),
Post-natal hair loss,
Diffuse Hair Loss (a general hair loss, more frequent in women)
Some of the scalp diseases (psoriasis, lichen, seborrheic dermatitis, etc.)
Who are NOT good candidates for MESOTHERAPY?
Pregnant women, breastfeeding women, those with immunologic disease, cancer patients, people with
diabetes, and those having anticoagulant treatment are not suitable patients for MESOTHERAPY.
Sapphire FUE

What is FUE Hair Transplant Performed With Sapphire Blades?

Sapphire FUE

The increase in technology advancements taking place each passing day, has paved the way for the development of new, innovative hair transplant techniques as well as hair loss treatments.

Hair transplantation that has progressed and evolved dramatically over the years, transforming into a well-established and minimally invasive surgical procedure, has taken its final form in-line with the more efficient utilization of new medical devices.

The FUE, which is considered one of the most modern and commonly used hair transplant techniques, ensuring natural-looking results, has carried its success one step further through the utilization of special devices with sapphire blades.

Beard Transplantation

Beard transplantation: Beard transplantation is performed in areas where the beard does not grow. This
can be for a number of reasons including scar tissue following an injury or a burn.
First, the area for beard transplantation is determined. A drawing of the aesthetic and natural shape of
the face of the person is prepared.
The number of follicles to be taken is determined and the transplantation areas is prepared. The
follicles to be transplanted to the beard are taken from the hairs on the cheekbones and from the nape
Beard hair is not like the hair on the head, its density can vary from person to person. If there is a
regional beard loss, the density of the beard is adjusted according to the follicles surrounding the area.
Between 1500-3000 follicles can be transplanted. Transplanting around 3000 follicles gives satisfactory
results. No problems should occur following the operation, how there may be redness around the
operation area for up to a week. Since the follicles are taken with tools that have a tip of 0.6-0.7 mm, no
scars are left.
The operation process requires attention and delicacy. The procedure will take about 4-5 hours,
depending on the plastic surgeon and the team. Before the procedure, local anesthesia is applied and
then the follicles are taken from the donor area. The operation is painless and comfortable for the
patient. The beard area is washed after 48 hours and you can shave after 30 days.
The results are natural. The marks after the operations may be visible for 10 days, however no one
can tell you have had an operation once the marks are gone.
Once the transplantation is complete, you must follow post operative care procedures. During the
recovery period, you must use the medications and preparations recommended by your doctor. Fifteen
days after the process, the beard sheds however it will start to grow back in the 2nd month. It can take
up to a year before the beard to completely established.

Gold FUE – FUE Hair Transplantation with Gold Sedation

The Reasons FUE Technique Is Preferred.
After the hair transplanting operation, people can have their hair cut, once their hair grows back.
Follicular unit extraction (FUE) is the latest hair transplantation technique used in Turkey and in the rest
of the world. It is a beneficial technique that helps achieve natural results both in taking the hair follicles
and in transplanting them. As in most of the hair transplantation techniques, FUE is the process of
transferring the live hair follicles one by one from the donor area, to the transplant area.
Unlike the FUT method, in this method, the follicular units (grafts) are directly removed from the scalp
by special punches and micro-motors. This method is known as “non-invasive”. In FUE technique, no
scalpel is used in the donor area, no stitches are inserted, and there is no visible mark left in the area
from where the follicles are taken. As long as there are no complications, the patients can continue their
daily life immediately following the hair transplant.
While the extraction methods are different in FUE and FUT, the transplanting of the obtained follicles is
exactly the same. With FUE technique, 4000:100000 Follicular unit grafts(2000:5000 )hair follicles can be
transplanted in one session.
The reasons why Follicular Unit Extraction is preferred:
After hair transplantation and after the hair has regrown, the patients can have their hair cut short.
Depending on the anatomy of the region in which the hair is transplanted and from which the hair
follicles are taken, there is no scarring.
The FUE technique is preferred for the areas with thinning hair. It is also a suitable method for people
who are thinning in the temporal area. It can be successfully applied to scarred areas where no hair
grows, as well as to the beard and mustache areas.
It is the preferred technique in eyebrow transplantation. As a result of removing cuts from the hair
follicles in the nape region, it is successfully applied in closing scars formed in the nape region. With the
FUE technique, only hair follicles between the ears are removed.
The advantages of the FUE technique
Hair transplantation can result in a more natural-looking and denser appearance.
It is a permanent solution for treating moderate to severe hair loss.
It is a comfortable technique that is designed to ensure patients with the least amount of discomfort,
leaving no external scars after the procedure.
FUE hair transplant technique offers patients faster recovery times; They can conveniently return to
their daily routine and are able to travel one day after the procedure.
With the right operation plan, no damage will be caused in the donor area and no change in the
appearance even after multiple operations.
98% of the transplanted grafts will grow as normal hair.
Process of Hair Transplantation
Every technique used in hair transplantation share basic principles.These principles are:
1 Harvesting hair follicles
FUE: Individually removing each follicular unit
2 Creating incisions
3 Transplanting hair follicles
Harvesting Hair Follicles
Ensuring a significant aesthetic success during the process of harvesting the hair follicles is due to the
distinctive aspect of the FUE technique. It is this innovation that has made FUE popular and preferred
over FUT. The FUT technique involves removing a small strip of tissue from the back of the head and
extracting the individual follicular units from this strip, whereas in FUE, each follicular unit is individually
taken directly from the scalp through small circular incisions. By this way, the risk of injury is eliminated.
Depending on the length of each follicular unit it is important to utilize needles that have a diameter of
0,7 mm to 0,9 mm or if the follicular unit grafts contains 3-4-5 hairs needles with a diameter of 0,1 mm
should be used. The sharpness of the needles as well as being only for single-use, are the elements that
have a considerable impact on the operation’s success. Another important factor is to extract hair
follicles with precise accuracy so as to avoid any follicular damage. For example; if the person who is
having a hair transplant has very curly hair, by using a curved punch called u-graft during the process of
extracting follicular units, the risk of follicular damage can be eliminated. All of these elements are
refinements planned by the doctor prior to the operation, which are tailored specifically to each
patient’s condition.
Recipient Site Preparation
In the classic FUE technique the incisions are created by utilizing steel blades. With these slit blades, the
incisions should be created with precise accuracy, considering the natural direction of hair growth. This
will allow the transplanted grafts to grow out at their natural direction.
While making slits in the recipient area, it is very important to follow the direction and angel of the
existing hair in that region.
FUE technique utilizes steel blades for creating incisions in the recipient site. During the operation, after
hundreds of incisions have been created, these steel blades should be replaced with new ones. On the
other hand, such a problem will not be encountered with sapphire FUE blades, because they are
smoother and sharper. For each patient, according to hair follicle thickness, just a few blade tips will
needed. Once again, the blades should only be used on an individual patient during a single procedure.
Transplanting Hair Follicles
The final stage, which is transplanting the hair follicles; is the process of transplanting the follicles one at
a time at an angle of 40-45 degrees, within the incisions that have been created at directions that
enables accurate placement. All three phases have certain specific technicalities and the most important
technicality within all stages is certainly experience.
FUE is a hair transplant technique that doesn’t leave any marks or require any stitches.
FUE performed with sapphire blades; a method that is regarded as the advanced version of Follicular
Unit Extraction also known as FUE technique, is conducted at universal hair Clinic.
Hair Transplant Basics
Individuals aged between 20 and 60 years can undergo a hair transplant surgery.
The patient who will undergo a hair transplant surgery will only need 3 days for pre-operative
preperation and for recovering.
Although the duration of surgery varies according to the number of grafts that will be transplanted, it
usually lasts about 6 to 8 hours.
In order to respond to possible complications, the operation must be conducted in a fully-equipped
A hair transplant procedure is performed with a doctor and at least 3 medical technicians.
It may take around 6 to 14 months to see the final outcome of hair growth. Starting from the day
following the operation, the patient can expect to see hair growth until the 14 th month.
8 Stages Of A Hair Transplant Process
1 Consultation: This is the stage where the doctor develops the patient’s operation plan and creates the
hairline design.
2 Preparation: This stage incorporates the processes of sterilizing the operation site and the application
of local anesthetics.
3 Extraction: The process of extracting hair grafts from the donor area of the patient.
4 Recipient Site Creation: This is the process of creating recipient sites by following the direction of the
existing terminal hairs.
As the transplantation may take 5 to 8 hours and as the patient is just under a local anesthesia, a break
is made between the end of the extraction phase and the beginning of implantation.
This short break averaging 30 minutes allows the patient to have a light meal.
6 Transplantation: This is the process of placing the grafts in recipient sites at right angles to hair
7 Postoperative Processes: This stage incorporates the processes of wound-dressing for the
transplanted site and PRP Therapy to speed up the healing process of the operation site.
8 Postoperative Care & Hair Wash: This is the washing process that is to be carried out for 15 days. Both
the donor and the transplanted area will be sensitive during this period, so it important to carry out the

washing process with extra care
