Preparation for surgery
Each and every DHI Hair Transplant procedure is tailored to suit every individual’s needs, preferences and the clinic’s best practices. When you arrive at the clinic, you will have your final consultation which will be done face-to-face between you and your surgeon. When you have both gone through the details of the DHI Hair Transplant procedure, your surgeon will examine your overall health condition by carrying out physical and blood tests.
As you are being prepared for the surgery, your surgeon will give you a long-acting local anesthesia. This is done so that you feel comfortable during the surgery. Once the anesthesia kicks in, your surgeon will start the procedure. Since there is no need to make incisions in this type of a hair transplant, the next step will be the extraction process.
Your surgeon will extract the hair follicles one by one from donor area, using a specially designed disposable instrument with a diameter of 1mm or less.
The extracted hair follicles are then implanted directly into the recipient area using an implant tool. No holes or slits are created prior to implantation with DHI hair transplant procedure.
You can always ask your surgeon to give you sedatives, just in case you’re not calm during this phase. This will help you relax.
A day after the surgery, you will have to return to the clinic for a quick review. Your surgeon will most likely give you a few instructions that you should carefully follow to make the recovery process flawless. Some of the instructions include:
