Looking for hair transplantation in Turkey? You are in the right place.

DHI – Direct Hair Transplant is an advanced form of FUE transplant treatment for hair loss. In FUE hair transplants, donor follicles are implanted into bald/thinning areas. The clinician cuts channels into the scalp and then inserts the grafts.

On the other hand, in the DHI procedure, the surgeon uses a handheld Choi Implanter Pen to create channels and implant follicles at the same time. If done correctly, the DHI procedure gives excellent hair transplant results. Make sure you choose a skilled surgeon for hair transplant in Turkey to do the procedure correctly.

Body Clinic Turkey is one of the best hair transplantation clinics in Istanbul. The entire procedure is performed by an MD Dermatologist using the most modern and successful DHI technique.

DHI Procedure


What is Direct Hair transplantation (DHI)?

The procedure of DHI hair transplant takes place in two phases – extraction and implantation. First, the surgeon harvests the grafts from a donor area using a specialized precision tool known as the Choi Implanter Pen. Then, the surgeon transplants and presses hair follicles very precisely one by one on the bald areas using the Choi Pen. 

The Choi Pen features a special tip design and a hollow barrel for fine hair insertion. This unique method allows the hair follicles to grow naturally without falling off. So, you will get long-lasting, natural-looking hair.

Benefits of a DHI Hair Transplant Turkey

There are many reasons why an increasing number of people prefer DHI hair transplants in Turkey:

  • Get natural-looking hair transplants that do not fall out. 
  • The amount of time the grafts spend outside of the body is greatly reduced due to the pen used in the process. This means there are greater survival rates for transplanted hair follicles. 
  • Extracted grafts experience less trauma during this procedure than others, leading to healthier final results. 
  • Significantly reduced risk of bleeding in the recipient area. 
  • Expect a faster recovery than other types of hair transplant procedures. No wounds or injury to the skin means you can return to daily life more quickly. 
  • There is no need to shave your head in preparation for this procedure. So, this procedure is the perfect choice for patients with longer hair.

The Procedure


Before performing the DHI hair transplantation in Turkey, we will talk to you to understand your needs and desired results you expect. 

Step 1:

The surgeon will shave the area of your head which will receive the transplant. Then, we apply local anaesthesia to numb the area. 

Step 2:

Using a special precision tool with a fine tip, the surgeon will extract hair follicles from the back of your scalp. 

Step 3:

Healthy hair follicles will be loaded into the Choi pen and directly implanted into the targeted area of your scalp.

Step 4:

Once this is complete, the surgeon applies an antibiotic cream and bandages to the treated areas. 

DHI usually takes around 8 hours, but the duration can vary depending on the number of follicles to be transplanted. A patient with advanced pattern baldness takes more time than those with a mildly receding hairline.

DHI Hair Transplant Recovery

DHI is preferred for faster recovery. However, recovery time varies from person to person, and it generally takes about 5 to 7 days to recover fully. During this time, you can expect some swelling, redness, and discomfort in the treated area.

It is important to follow aftercare instructions set out by your surgeon:

  • Sleep at a 45-degree angle to prevent swelling in the treated area. 
  • Wash your hair as directed by your clinician. Pat dry your wet hair with a clean, soft towel. Do not apply pressure and avoid using a hairdryer. 
  • You will notice scabbing on your scalp around your transplanted area. This should go away within 15 days. Otherwise, get in touch with us if they persist following this timeframe. 
  • Protect your hair from direct sunlight, seawater and pool water for the first 2 to 4 weeks. 
  • If you are prescribed any medicines following your procedure by your surgeon, ensure these are taken on time and as prescribed.

DHI is known for faster recovery. So, you may expect to resume your normal day-to-day life within 4 to 5 days.

The answer depends on the donor area and your hair loss pattern. Please consult with our clinician to discuss your exact situation, how many grafts, total coverage, expectations and aftercare.

In the 4th month, the hair growth process accelerates, and you will start noticing the results in around the 6th month. 

During 6-12 months, the transplanted hair continues to grow, and the hair strands become stronger and thicker. You will have achieved the final result of your hair transplant operation within 18 months. 

Now your hair regrowth process is completed, and you will see 100% of the transplanted hair. Finally, you will have denser, longer and stronger-looking hair.

The hair washing procedure is started as described with the special lotion we recommend to you and the shampoo after the hair transplant. The hair-washing method helps to heal the scalp and remove the resulting crusting.
