What is a DHI (CHOI Pen) Beard Transplant?

DHI is an abbreviation of the concept known as Direct Hair Implantation. After removing the hair follicles from the donor area with the help of special needles, they are placed in the area where the transplantation will be performed. DHI Beard Transplantation performed without shaving is important for a quick transplant.

DHI Beard Transplantation is performed in areas with low hair density, rather than in areas that are not completely hairless. Against this background, it is likely to achieve more successful results. The DHI method may be preferred to perform a Beard Transplantation that is suitable for the patient’s facial features and will adapt to his beard.

In this context, beard-to-beard or hair-to-beard transplantation operations can be performed. The operation begins for the best quality result in accordance with the patient’s condition and the final decision of the hair transplantation specialist.

Local anesthesia is used in DHI Beard Transplantation. After local anesthesia, the hairs taken from the donor area are planted directly in the area where the beard is little or none.
