DHI Hair Transplant Procedure-min

If you’re looking for a hair transplant, direct hair implantation (DHI) is a cutting edge procedure that is designed to increase the thickness and reshape the hairline of any patient. This hair transplant method is suitable for people of all genders, ethnicities, and backgrounds.

What is a DHI hair transplant?

Direct hair implantation (DHI) is the latest hair transplant method used by surgeons to combat hair thinning and hair loss. It uses a special implanter tool called the Choi implanter pen to extract and implant follicles directly from the donor area into the area of hair loss (hence “direct hair implantation”). It is a more expensive method of hair transplant as it’s a slower method than the FUE method as it is just the doctor doing all the work whereas with FUE the nurses/technicians also help out more.

In many ways, FUE and DHI hair transplants work the same way. Hair follicles are extracted from your donor area and then implanted into your recipient area. Your recipient area may be anything from your your crown, mid-parting, to your crown area.

How does a DHI Hair Transplant Work?

If you require a reshaping of the hairline, the surgeon may mark out the recipient area with a marker pen. This may help to bring the hairline down to a typical length to the eyebrows (5-7cm).

  1. The doctor will design the hairline with a marker pen when needed whilst discussing this with the patient and making sure that they are happy.
  2. The nurses/technicians will shave the patients donor area in order to be prepped for the procedure. The doctor will then administer the local anaesthetic to numb the area and make the patient feel comfortable during the procedure.
  3. The surgeon will then begin extracting one graft at a time from the donor area using the Choi pen and hand it to the technician which will be passing another Choi pen for the next graft.
  4. After the procedure, the hair transplant surgeon will bandage your head and provide you with an antibiotic cream for use in the future date. For more information on aftercare, why not read our aftercare page.

Why get a DHI Hair Transplant?

Did you know that 80% of men suffer with hair thinning over the course of their lifetime? In extension, conditions such as pattern baldness can affect men and women equally, resulting in low self-esteem and feelings of self-consciousness.

DHI hair transplantation is a fantastic solution for anyone suffering with hair loss. Whether you have got a receding hairline, a thinning mid parting, or hair loss on your crown, this surgical procedure can solve your hair loss concerns and really help boost your self confidence.

Why get DHI over other hair transplant methods?

DHI and FUE hair transplant procedures are a great alternative to older methods such as FUT. With follicular unit transplantation (FUT), patients are left with a linear scar on their scalp -this is where your donor hair follicles have been extracted. As a result, FUT requires a longer procedure time (as the hairs extracted from your donor strip have to be separated under a microscope) and a longer recovery (waiting for your scar to heal). It may even be that unsightly scars left after FUT may never fully heal.

With FUE and DHI hair transplantation, your hair follicles are extracted individually and no linear scar is left after the procedure. Instead, the extraction of individual hairs leaves smaller scabs on your recipient area that typically heal fully within 7 to 10 days.

Furthermore, DHI was developed to speed up the FUE hair transplant process! What separates DHI from FUE is the extraction/implantation tool that negates the need for surgeons to map out where new grafts need to be implanted, making it the most advanced hair restoration technology available today.

Our clinics have also found that direct hair implantation produces less bleeding and scabbing in the recipient area. This means you will be looking your best in no time!

How much does a DHI hair transplant surgery cost?

A DHI hair transplant is the most expensive procedure we offer at our clinics. Typically, this procedure costs anywhere from £4,500 – £7,000+. However, such a variation in cost is dependent upon your own severity of balding. It is difficult to predict how costly a DHI hair transplant will be as every patent is different and requires different needs.

In an attempt to make our hair transplants more accessible, our clinics offer a range of different payment methods. If you need to, you can spread the cost of your hair transplant over a 12 or 24 month period. We believe no one should be priced out of a hair transplant procedure!

Very few can deliver a professional service whilst ensuring that all clients receive first -class personalised treatment, turning what can be a daunting experience into something of relative ease. Both Kevin, Dr Karla, and their surgical team certainly did this (and then some!) Once my mind was made up to have hair loss treatment, I was keen to get my transplant done asap. Kevin exceeded all my expectations with this - it’s hard to believe that my journey from first consultation to surgery happened in the space of one month. Efficiency did not stop there - on the day of surgery, my transplant was completed in less than 6 hours, all the while ensuring that I was comfortable and pain-free. Security is the best word that comes to mind to describe Dr Karla’s care -you know you’re in experienced hands! Now I can look forward to the results over the next few months, with the added peace of mind that the Harley Street Clinic team are only a phone call or email away to address any concerns. They will be the first name I will recommend to anyone looking for effective hair loss treatment, and I hope to make use of their service again in the future should I need it.

From my first contact with Kevin he has provided great customer service, responding quickly or questions, offering consultations and giving me time to make my decision (not a salesman like I have experienced before). He is extremely knowledgeable in this area and so far everything he has told me has been true! Dr Kalra is a fantastic doctor and he knows everything there is to know about hair loss, I trust him completely. The surgery went smoothly, some of the injections hurt at the start but after that it’s the sitting still for hours that is the hardest part. The nurses were also brilliant they were happy to talk to you if you initiated conversation but didn’t chew your ear off if you were quiet. It is 4 months since my surgery and the the hair in the top of my head is almost fully covered with a few thinner spots where I previously had no hair at all, it seems to be noticeably thickening up weekly so I think one more month and no one would ever know I used to be bald! The donor area was completely healed and unnoticeable after 4 weeks. The aftercare has also been great, I have followed the instructions and I am very happy with the results so far.

I got a hair transplant and PRP for my hair. Im 19 years old and it’s the best decision I made so far. Manchester hair transplant clinic have been amazing. They were brilliant at welcoming me into getting a hair transplant and amazing at doing the job right. I will defiantly be going to them later on in my life if/when another is needed due to my age. I would highly recommend their service to anyone interested 😊

So after years of thinking about having a hair transplant i finally phoned up Harley street hair transplant clinic and spoke to Kevin who was extremely helpful answering all my questions.The transplant was on the 29th Jan 2022 by Dr Kalra and his team who made me feel really relaxed and comfortable. They were all very professional and very friendly. The procedure went great, no pain at all and I was extremely happy with the results. I can’t thank Kevin, Dr Kalra and his team enough, even the after care was unbelievable, thanks again guys. Highly recommend, 5 star service all day long. Cheers Richie

Had my FUE hair transplant on Saturday 5th February 2022 for receding hair line and balding crown. I’ve been thinking about a hair transplant for the last 2 years, I’ve heard bad stories and good stories as you do when you look through the internet or watching YouTube videos. I spoke with Kevin in January, great with explaining everything and putting me at ease (as I naturally worry about anything and everything). I wanted the surgery done as soon as possible after speaking to Kevin as everything felt right. Kevin arranged this for me and before I knew it here I am after surgery thinking what was I ever worried about and why didn’t I get this done sooner, however, things happen for a reason and that reason I hadn’t had it done sooner was I hadn’t found the right place or team to do the transplant and I’m glad that happened as I found Harley street hair transplant. I would highly recommend Kevin - Dr Kalra and his team. Thank you all for giving me my confidence back and making me feel like a different person. I am 4 days into my recovery and feel great. If you are reading this review and are like me with worrying about everything then please stop worrying, you are in safe hands before, during and after the procedure with Kevin, Dr Kalra and his team, just go for it. Thank you all again 😁

Massive Thankyou to all the team . After months of indecision as to wether to have a hair transplant or not ,i finally made the decision to make that first call,im so glad i did,im so pleased i went with Dr Khalra and his team. I first spoke to Kevin he come across as a very honest and genuine guy who was certainly very knowledgable about all the procedure ,after speaking to him i decided that these were the people i wanted to go with. On the day of the procedure i was very nervous,but on meeting Dr Kalra and his team i was immediately put at ease ,he was very reassuring and such a lovely friendly guy as was his team,It was all very proffesionally done in a lovely clean and modern clinic in Bury. Throughout the day i felt i was in really good hands with Dr Khalra and his team Naz and Raz ( hope ive spelt it right). Im now 7weeks into my Fue hair transplant and looking forward to the coming months to see the results . Ive no hesitation in recommending Dr Khalra Kevin and the team ,they are definitely the right people to go to if you are considering having a procedure done . Again i cant thank you enough . Mark..
