DHI, which stands for Direct Hair Implantation, is the latest technique in hair transplantation.

The FUE and DHI methods are relatively similar but differ in one way: With the FUE technique, hair follicles are placed onto a sanitary area to open up channels in the receiver area, but by using the DHI technique, the surgeon can load follicles into an instrument called the Choi pen and plant each follicle into the area of concern, without having to open up channels first.

Step by Step DHI Hair Transplant Procedure

  • The surgeon transmits the harvested grafts and donor hair into the Choi pen.
  • The graft is gently inserted into the hollow needle at the tip of the implant pen and handed back to the surgeon.
  • The needle is then inserted into the scalp at an exact angle of 40-45 degrees by the surgeon. They then insert the graft by pressing down on the plunger while the incision site is made.
  • Typically, 2-6 Choi implanters and around 15-16 needles are utilised continuously throughout a procedure. The instruments are passed back and forth between the physicians and their assistants.
  • The DHI implanter gives a surgeon complete control over the entire process, culminating in a natural-looking result.


Before a surgery using the DHI technique, you would not be required to shave your hair off.

The DHI method works well for fo younger patients who are in the early stages of hair loss. Therefore, extensive surgeries become unnecessary.

  • Higher grafts viability
  • Performed under local anesthesia
  • Short recovery time
