Hence, it provides a full statistical chart of the available numbers of hair in the donor site and how it will fulfill the patient’s needs.
Most noteworthy, the team work will take some photos of the patient’s full head, the donor area and the recipient area. These photos will be from different angles. These photos will be a proof for the results of the operation. The patient will compare these photos with the post-operation photos.
DHI hair transplant procedure
First of all, your real DHI hair transplant procedure will begin with the sedation and anesthesia of the donor site. This kind of anesthesia will be local, which means that you will be awake to see the full operation stages and to communicate with the team. As a result, you can ask and put all your inquiries about the operation and its steps. Above all, you can ask the team to show you the extracted follicles and how they manage the procedure.
DHI hair transplant grafting
The doctor will draw and specify the follicles in the donor area to prepare them for extraction. Then, he uses a very special instrument to pick and extract the hair follicles. Furthermore, the donor area is the back or the sides of the scalp in most cases, which is the area of resistant hair to hair loss factors. This special tool removes one hair follicle each time, then the doctor should keep these follicles in a low temperature container.
The temperature of this container should be no more than 4 degrees Celsius to keep the follicles alive and vivid. The idea behind the procedure is that the hair follicles spend less time in the keeping container outside the human body. Consequently, they will not be adapted to damage, and they will stay alive. The grafting step takes place in a specific time that will enable the follicles to still alive and keep their vital materials.
DHI hair transplant implanting
Furthermore, after the grafting step takes place, the doctor uses a very specialized tool to implant the hair follicles in their new place. This new place “environment’ or the recipient area will be anesthetized locally before the final implantation. Then, the doctor will implant the hair follicles one after one in the suitable places using the implanting tool. The specialized tool will be able to implant the follicles in their direct angle and place.

You will notice less dense hair in the donor area. Consequently, the reduction of hair in the donor area moves to the recipient area where you suffer from hair loss. However, you will not suffer from any bad shape in the donor area, but this reduction will be camouflaged by the surrounding hair. This hair will continue to grow and you should have no worrying about this area.
No bandages or stitches after the DHI hair transplant operation… This is one of the facts and pros of the procedure using the magical tool.
Afterwords, you can go home immediately for recovery from the impacts of the local anesthesia with no noticed pain. Second, the operation will leave no scars or sever pain in the place of the procedure.

Most notably, the clients of the DHI experience a very comfortable operation. Above all they enjoy it and its results.
The quality and accurate results are the basic difference between DHI hair transplant and other techniques. FUT and FUT just moves hair from the donor area to that area which suffers from hair loss. This operation has some results that are fine good but not guaranteed. Nevertheless, DHI is able to come with accurate results of the implanted hair which the doctor will place with specific angle and direction.
