The most widely used surgical hair transplant procedures are the FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction), and the DHI (Direct Hair Implantation). There is also the FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) but it is outdated and not recommended anymore. 

Why does the DHI hair transplant price cost higher than the FUE?

A patient planning to get a hair transplant will find that the cost of the DHI hair transplant procedure is higher than FUE, here is why

       In FUE, individual hair follicles are extracted from the donor area where a punch is used to cut a circular hole around the hair strand. The follicle is then transplanted into the recipient area. This technique requires precision and expertise

        DHI is a very effective technique for cases in which not so many grafts are needed. In this method, each follicle is individually placed directly on the recipient area with the help of the DHI implanter, also called the Choi Pen. 

      With the Choi Pen, surgeons can control the depth, direction, and angle of each graft that is to be implanted. Because of this, the new hair which will grow does not fall out. The grafts have a longer life and the final result is 100% natural. The direct implantation of the hair follicles with the Choi Pen helps with achieving a natural look, without visible scars on the treated area. FUE also is a scarless treatment and gives a natural look, but it does not involve the use of the Choi Pen.

     The Choi Pen is an instrument. Specially designed for hair transplant procedures and hair loss treatments and is an expensive instrument. The cost of Choi Implanter is higher than the equipment used in hair transplant procedures.

 Both the techniques, the FUE and the DHI are good methods for hair transplantation. The preference between the techniques is made by analyzing the requirement and needs of the patient’s special cases.
