Hair graft with technique DHI: How is it done?

The capillary implant is, at present, the definitive solution to the lack of hair that has fallen due to alopecia. There are different types of capillary graft that differ, mainly, in the way of doing it. One of the most notorious is what is known as capillary graft with technique DHI, which is the FUE technique but with slight variations in the instruments.

In the blog de Hospital Capilar, a leading clinic specializing in medicine and hair surgeries, we tell you everything you need to know about hair implants with the technique DHI.

What is hair transplant with technique DHI?

Hair transplantation DHI responds to the FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) technique. In other words, the method followed in the intervention is the same as in the FUE capillary implant. What differentiates the capillary graft DHI of traditional FUE is the instruments used during surgery. In addition, one of the advantages offered by the DHI is that it can be done hair transplant without shaving as long as an appropriate hair length is available and the medical team determines the feasibility of it.

The main advantage of capillary grafting with DHI is that it facilitates the implantation of follicular units. This is mainly due to the instruments used. In the capillary graft with technique DHI what is known as an implanter is used. It is a surgical instrument, similar to a mechanical pencil, in which the follicular units are added and, by activating it, it makes the incision and the implant at the same time.

In which cases can a capillary implant be performed? DHI?  

The viability of the capillary implant DHI It is determined by the medical diagnosis prior to surgery, in the same way that it happens in cases in which traditional FUE is performed. Therefore, If the patient is suitable for a hair transplant, it is possible to carry it out with DHI.

However, It is not feasible in all cases to perform the capillary graft with the technique DHI without shaving. It must be a qualified medical team who assesses each case individually and determines the viability of the hair transplant with DHI without shaving. Among other issues, our medical equipment ensures that the quality and length of the hair, as well as the recipient and donor areas, must be assessed.

The first thing that is carried out in a capillary graft with the technique DHI is the shaving of the donor and recipient areas. In cases where it is feasible to perform a DHI without shaving, only the donor area is shaved, which will go unnoticed by the length of the patient's hair.

Local anesthesia

Extraction of follicular units from the recipient area

The extraction of the follicular units necessary to cover the area affected by alopecia is carried out with a punch with micromotor. With this instrument, the follicular units are extracted one by one, which are deposited in Petri dishes for better conservation.

Incisions and implantation with implanter  

The last phase of a capillary graft with technique DHI corresponds to the incisions and implantation. Both steps are performed at the same time thanks to an instrument known as implant, in which the follicular unit is inserted and, by activating it, the incision and implantation are made at the same time.

With all this, the hair transplant surgery is completed with the technique DHI. It is at this moment that the postoperative of a hair graft, in which all medical recommendations must be followed to obtain the best results.
