The Benefit of DHI Hair Transplant Abroad 

Restoring your hair to its prime condition has never been easier than now; because hair transplant is an effective treatment to combat hair loss, many patients are traveling aboard to have it.

Patients from the UK, US, Canada, and Europe travel to Turkey to seek affordable DHI hair transplant treatment. But Turkey's proximity also plays a factor in why patients prefer to travel to it.

Doctors abroad speak and communicate in English 

Some patients might hesitate to consider having treatment abroad because of language or cultural barriers. But in medical tourism destinations like Turkey, Hungary, and Poland, doctors regularly serve international patients. They can communicate in good English.

Some doctors had their training abroad, which explains their good English proficiency. Also, their clinics have assistants who communicate in English.

You have access to innovative treatment options 

Traveling abroad to have hair restoration treatment will open other possibilities or introduce a better, more effective treatment to solve hair loss.

Find highly skilled and experienced DHI hair transplant 

The surgeons are highly experienced with years of practice. Their clinics are accredited by renowned institutions like the Joint Commission International JCI, the International Society Of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS), and the International Organization for Standardization ISO.

Affordable treatment that's worth your money 

Finding a specialist abroad will be more cost-effective for you than visiting an amateur doctor in your local country. DHI hair transplants abroad cost 40% - 60% less in popular medical tourism destinations like Turkey, Poland, and Hungary

Experience a luxury holiday 

Most patients travel abroad for the procedure; their primary goal is treatment. But they understand it is an opportunity to enjoy a luxury holiday and explore new experiences before or after their surgery.

Tips For Choosing The Best DHI Hair Transplant Clinic Abroad 

  • Verify the doctor's experience. Ask about the surgeon's education, additional fellowship training, and how many times they performed the treatment. 

  • Schedule an online consultation. Most clinics or hospitals that work with international patients offer this service. 

  • Create a shortlist of possible clinics abroad:  research the clinic you're planning to visit overseas. Most reputable clinics will have an official website, and you can examine the specialist's expertise, reviews, and credentials.  

  • Check the local regulation: It is essential to know how the treatment is regulated in your chosen country. This will help you identify reputable clinics registered with the governing body or national association. It will also tell you about your rights.

How Is The Procedure Performed? 

Before the procedure, your surgeon will give you local anesthesia. Then your surgeon will start the procedure. Since there is no need to make incisions in this technique of hair transplant, the next step will be the extraction process.

Your surgeon will extract the hair follicles from the donor area, using a specially designed 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 needed. You can always ask your surgeon to give you sedatives if you're feeling anxious to help you relax.

How To Prepare For DHI Hair Transplantation? 

  • A week before the procedure, you should stop taking Aspirin and any other medication associated with blood thinning.

  • If you are allergic to any drugs, you should inform your surgeon. 

  •  Avoid smoking 24 hours before the surgery.

  • Consuming any alcoholic beverages can affect anesthesia. Avoid alcohol 24 hours prior to surgery.

  • If you are taking medication for chronic or acute diseases such as diabetes and heart disease, you should inform your surgeon before the surgery. 

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Is DHI Hair Transplant Painful?

Most DHI hair transplant reviews and patients report the procedure has no pain, only slight discomfort. You may feel pain or soreness after the procedure. But, your surgeon will prescribe medication to manage the pain and discomfort. 

Does DHI Hair Transplant Leave a Scar?

No, the DHI technique leaves no visible scars in both the donor or implanted area.

What Is the Difference Between FUE And DHI Hair Transplant?

The main difference between FUE and DHI hair transplant techniques is the way the collected grafts are implanted in the recipient area. During FUE hair transplant, the surgeon manually implants the harvested grafts, while in the DHI technique, a special implant device is used for this process.
