2 Months After DHI Hair Transplant
Shock loss usually begins within the first 3 weeks after the transplant. Grafts that fall out 2 or 3 months after DHI hair transplant gradually begin to grow again. At the end of the 4th month, the regrowth rate should be around 30%, by the 6th month the regrowth rate should be around 60%. Results appear exactly 12 months after the operation.
What Should be Considered in Washing Procedures After Hair Transplant?
You should wash your hair very carefully for 10 days after hair transplant. Your transplanted hair should not be in contact with water. You should wash your donor and hair transplanted area with a special medical shampoo. To do this, lather some shampoo in your hands and apply it carefully to your scalp. We recommend that you do all the washing steps gently and without finger tip pressure. After washing your hair, you should dry it with a paper towel. To remove the scabs, you should wash your hair using shampoo every day. In about 7 to 10 days, there will be no traces of dried blood or scab on your scalp. You can continue your normal hair washing routine within 14 days.We recommend that you wash your hair only once a day. You should be careful to use special shampoo in the washing process.
How long after the hair transplant procedure can be started to exercise and sports?
Immediately after the hair transplant, you can start a short walk or do physical exercises that won’t sweat too much. Do not participate in heavy and long sports activities (such as bodybuilding, football, basketball, etc.) for three weeks after the hair transplant. You should also avoid swimming for 3 weeks. Because the salt water and chlorine ratio in the sea and pools is likely to damage your hair follicles. Being in very hot environments such as a bath or sauna can damage your transplanted hair cells. You should also avoid direct exposure to sunlight or going to the tanning salon. You should stay away from smoking and alcohol. Your smoking and alcohol use slows down your healing process after hair transplantation. You should take care not to consume it for 2 weeks, eat healthy and sleep regularly. A healthy lifestyle will help increase your recovery rate.
Application of the DHI method
- Your hair follicles collected in your hair transplant operation with the Choi pen are put into the pen one by one.
In the meantime, you should be very careful and careful. The assistants who perform the placement process here, after placing each hair follicle, give these hair follicles to the specialist doctor for transplantation.
2. At this stage, the doctor transplants your hair follicles at an angle of 40-45 degrees. Another important point at this stage is to find the right direction. You should have your hair transplant done in line with your existing hair.
3. Your doctor should determine your hair follicles placed on the Choi needle at a right angle and transplant with the needle push feature.
2 to 6 Choi pens and an average of 15-16 choi tips should be used in your operation. The nibs of the pens used are of different sizes. This depends on your hair root and thickness.
First of all, let’s talk about the advantages stated by the experts:

Is Everyone Eligible for DHI / Choi Hair Transplantation?
This method was first introduced by Kyungpook National University in Korea. Specialists in hair transplantation have made researches to use this method well. And according to the results of the research, it has been concluded that the first developed Choi pen is not suitable for hair transplantation. It has also been explained that this application is more difficult.
If we give an example of this situation, we can show that fine-stranded and curled hair follicles are damaged during placing on the tip of the pen and during transplantation. In subsequent studies, the implanter pen design has been to be suitable not only for Asians with thick and straight hair, but also for general hair types.The tips of the implanter pen used today vary between 0.64 mm and 1.0 mm.

What is DHI Hair Transplant?
DHI hair transplant is a revolutionary hair restoration procedure that offers natural-looking results. It stands for Direct Hair Implantation and is a minimally invasive method of hair replacement that involves the extraction of individual follicular units from the donor area. This technique is becoming increasingly popular due to its ability to provide longer-lasting and more natural-looking results than traditional methods. The DHI hair transplant surgery also allows for greater control over density, direction, and angle of implantation.
The DHI hair transplant procedure begins with a consultation, where the doctor will assess your scalp and determine the best course of action for your individual needs. During this appointment, they will discuss any concerns you have about scarring or pain associated with traditional methods, as well as explain how the DHI hair transplant works in detail. After this initial consultation, your doctor will create a customized plan based on your goals and expectations. Once all grafts have been successfully transplanted into their designated areas, they must be allowed to heal properly before any styling can take place. After healing has taken place, patients can expect to see fuller coverage within 6-9 months post-surgery depending on their individual circumstances.
