Which Hair Transplant Should You Consider Between Fue Vs. Dhi?

In an attempt to regain their confidence, many individuals, without even knowing about hair transplant procedures, fall into this trap of getting them and end up making their situations even worse than they were before.

Since there is a lot to talk about hair loss and its revival methods, here we will talk about two standard transplantation techniques: FUE and DHI.

Now, you may wonder why we are talking about only these two and not the other hair transplant techniques. Are they not relevant?

Well, they are! However, most individuals prefer either going for FUE or DHI. Let’s have a look at which one is suitable for you to get your lost self-esteem back.

FUE hair transplant

FUE hair transplant in Istanbul, Turkey, also known as (Follicular Unit Extraction) is a type of hair transplant procedure where the doctor or the hair transplant expert removes a group of hair follicles, also known as grafts. These are taken from the back or side of the head where there is an excess of hair and placed on the bald area. Unlike FUT, where a piece of skin is taken to collect grafts, it is the easiest way to restore the hair without giving the patient any pain.

It is for this reason that it is becoming popular among many patients.

Benefits of FUE hair transplant

  1. It gives a natural-looking result.
  2. The patient can go home either on the same day or another day.
  3. The patient gets no visible scars.
  4. Success rate 97%-100%.
  5. It is slightly less expensive than traditional FUT.

DHI hair transplant

Talking about another hair restoration technique, the DHI hair transplant in Istanbul, is the upgraded version of the FUE hair transplant. DHI stands for Direct Hair Implantation which is done with the help of an implant pen or choi pen, a type of medical instrument. Using this, hair follicles are extracted from the scalp’s donor area and implanted one at a time where there is a need for hair to grow. When going for the method, the patient can be at ease as they won’t need to shave the entire head but only the donor area.

Because it is the most advanced method, it is also the most expensive.

Benefits of DHI hair transplant:

  1. There is less risk of bleeding involved.
  2. The method is more accurate than FUE.
  3. There is no chance of scarring.
  4. Faster recovery following the operation.
  5. It also causes less trauma to the skin. 

Difference between FUE and DHI hair transplant

In the above section, we explained you what these terms are. Now let’s talk about the factors that differentiate these both and based on which you can make a final decision.

Given the more significant potential for individualized, effective, and superior hair transplant outcomes, it is clear from the above table that the DHI hair transplant technique is a preferable choice to FUE and FUT. However, when you are happy with what you are receiving, the others do not become any less. Just be careful not to make a poor choice!
