DHI Hair Transplant

Hair Pen Implant in Turkey

Istanbul, Turkey is recognized worldwide as being the ultimate go-to destination for the highest quality hair transplants. Our Este Medical Group clinic in Turkey has a solid reputation for providing superior service and a proven track record of successful hair transplants and hair regrowth with our clients. Este’s Istanbul clinic recently went up against 3,000 other transplant clinics in the Best of Year Awards and won first place!  

Direct Hair Implant or DHI is a hair transplant method that utilizes a pen-shaped medical instrument to transplant and implant hairs; it is similar to the FUE hair transplant procedure. With years of hair transplant experience at Este Medical Group you are in safe hands when choosing the Direct Hair Implant with the Choi Implanter Pen technique. Hair follicles are harvested from the donor area using the Choi Implanter Pen and placed into the scalp for new hair growth. Thanks to this DHI tool, each hair follicle can be placed at a specific angle and depth, which facilitates natural looking hair growth.

Increasing numbers of men are travelling to Turkey for Este Medical Group DHI hair transplants to regrow their hair and rebuild their confidence and self-esteem. For many men it’s the only way they can regain a natural head of hair again. An Este hair transplant in Turkey is performed under local anaesthetic and can be completed in a day; there are no scalpels involved, no sutures or staples, and no linear scarring. DHI is a minimally invasive hair transplant treatment that involves no downtime.          

The sooner you take action, the more likely you are to prevent further hair loss. If you have questions about hair loss solutions, we invite you to arrange a consultation with one of our experienced Este Medical Group haircare experts.

Causes of Hair Loss

Before you decide on a hair transplant treatment you need to identifying what type of hair loss you are experiencing. Hair loss can be caused by a number of things including: hormone imbalances, stress, depression, diet, medication, and personal grooming. Whatever the reason, the sooner you pinpoint the underlying issues with the help of an Este consultant, the more likely you are to halt further hair loss.

  • Changes in hormones
  • Medication side effects
  • Ageing
  • Genetics
  • Illness and extreme stress
  • Inadequate hair care

Benefits of DHI Hair Transplant in Turkey

Direct Hair Implant (DHI) is the latest and most advanced technique available in hair transplantation and hair restoration services. DHI hair transplant treatment begins by extracting hair follicles from the donor area, normally the back of the head or the sides. Once hair follicles are extracted (or harvested) under local anaesthetic, they are ready for insertion. Donor hair is transplanted into the scalp using a Choi Implanter Pen. This medical-grade pen makes a micro incision into the scalp and deposits each hair follicle one by one. One advantage of DHI hair transplant is it moves a bit faster than a FUE hair transplant.  

You will see noticeable results immediately. In just five months clients experience visible hair growth (i.e., on average 50% hair growth). And within a year most transplant recipients will experience up to 100% hair growth. A DHI transplant treatment is very successful.

  • Shorter recovery time compared with other types of hair transplant
  • Higher graft viability compared with other hair loss treatments
  • Less invasive as the incision is shaped to fit the hair graft
  • Grafts can be angled to follow natural hair direction

Este’s Hair Transplant Process

Consultation & Pre-Treatment at Local Clinic

Your hair transplant journey to Turkey starts with a consultation at the nearest Este Medical Group clinic, or online with an Este hair loss specialist. The first thing to do is send us a message through our website and book a DHI consultation.  

As part of the consultation an Este hair loss expert will assess your hair loss type, discuss potential hair loss causes, and recommend the most optimal regrowth treatment and treatment timeline for you. This initial consultation will determine if a DHI hair transplant Turkey treatment is the best option for your type of hair loss.  

Once a DHI treatment has been booked at our hair transplant clinic in Turkey, you will need to undergo some treatment preparation: laser hair regrowth therapy is recommended to stimulate and prepare your scalp for the transplant procedure. Once your transplant is booked you will be fully briefed on what to expect during and after a DHI regrowth treatment.

Transplant Surgery in Turkey

Este Medical Group will look after your accommodation and travel to Turkey. When you arrive to our Istanbul hair transplant clinic, our friendly team will be there to greet you (they do speak English, no worries!). Before the DHI procedure your transplant team will go over the whole treatment from beginning to end, making sure you are once again fully briefed on what to expect. Post-treatment the team will make sure you have all you need to know to continue with your transplant aftercare.  

Treatment begins with a local anaesthetic applied to the treatment areas of the body and scalp. The surgery team will locate and extract hair from a stable zone (also called the donor site) on your body (e.g., back or sides of the head) and transplant these hairs one by one to the treatment area you wish to improve with new hair growth. If you are bald or balding, another donor site like the chest or arms may be able to provide hair for transplanting. This will all be reviewed during your initial consultation. There is no downtime from this procedure, after the treatment is complete you will carry on with your day like any other.

Aftercare & Check-Ups at Local Clinic

After the hair transplant, you can go about your daily business as usual. Since you are in Istanbul, we highly recommend you take some time for sightseeing and eating delicious Turkish cuisine. In Istanbul it is not unusual to see men and women walking around after a hair transplant; it’s considered quite normal in Turkey (nobody even looks at you, as hair transplants are that common).    

Once you leave Turkey you will be booked for some hair transplant aftercare at the nearest Este clinic. Depending on the extent of your hair transplant and recovery, you may be booked for specialist hair washing, hair growth maintenance, and laser hair regrowth therapy. Individual aftercare plans may vary from client to client. All Este Medical Group hair transplant clients will receive check-ups and follow-up attention.  

An Este haircare expert will customise for you a detailed aftercare plan to best care for the scalp and new hair growth. This includes a step-by-step first hair wash, and a final post-treatment hair wash guide. Este’s transplant aftercare facilitates the regrowth of stronger hair and a healthier scalp.
