How Should I Choose the Most Suitable Hair Transplant Methods for Me?

Hair transplant methods constantly change and develop according to the needs and expectations of patients. When the methods applied in the past are compared with the hair transplantation methods applied today, this development and change is seen more clearly. So, how do you choose among hair transplantation methods? Which is the best method? Answers to these questions and other details about hair transplantation are in the rest of the article.

How to Perform Hair Transplant Surgery?

Hair transplantation is a permanent treatment developed for hair loss. Hair follicles taken from the nape of the neck of people with permanent hair loss, especially male pattern baldness, are transplanted to the balding area. Thus, hair growth is ensured in the balding area and baldness or sparseness is eliminated.

Different methods are used to perform this process. Although the underlying goal of each method is the same, the way it is carried out differs significantly. Issues such as procedure duration, the healing process, the success rate of transplanted grafts, and hair density are entirely related to the preferred hair transplant methods.

What are the Hair Transplant Methods?

Although different methods are used in hair transplants, some are preferred and stand out. Details about commonly used hair transplantation methods are as follows:

1 - What is the FUT Hair Transplant Technique?

FUT is one of the oldest known methods. Although it is not preferred much today, it is a method that should be known to understand how and to what extent this process has changed.

In the FUT technique, grafts are taken from the nape area along with the scalp. The long and thin opening at the nape of the neck is closed with stitches. Afterward, the grafts taken are transplanted to the hairless areas. Due to the stitches used in the procedure, a long and thin incision scar occurs in the nape area.

The main reasons the FUT technique is not preferred are that it causes permanent scarring and the high risk of complications. However, it should be remembered that it is the most used technique recently.

2 - What is a FUE Hair Transplant?

FUE hair transplant is considered one of the most advanced methods. It is very popular both in Turkey and around the world. The following steps are followed in hair transplantation with this method:

  • First, local anesthesia is applied to patients.
  • Grafts are collected from the nape area individually and kept in a special solution. Meanwhile, the grafts are cleared of tissue pieces.
  • Mini channels are opened in the hairless area.
  • Finally, the grafts are placed in the opened channels and completed.

Since local anesthesia is applied during hair transplantation, patients do not feel any pain and go through this process comfortably. They will also have a comfortable recovery period after hair transplantation, as there are no large incisions or stitches.


Number of Grafts (Single Session)





The comparisons here should be a generalization. Since it is possible for very different results to emerge from this table. Ultimately, both patients are different and the experience of hair transplant surgeons is different.

Patients' Comments on Hair Transplant Methods

Those who have had hair transplantation share their experiences with comments and evaluations in different environments. These shares made by the patients serve as a guide for others who are planning to have a hair transplant. Details about the comments of those who had hair transplantation with FUE and DHI hair transplant methods are as follows:

1 - Comments on FUE Hair Transplant Methods

It is seen that the patients who prefer the FUE technique for hair transplantation are highly satisfied. One of the points that draws attention in patients' comments is that the healing process is particularly comfortable. In addition, in the comments, it is seen that the patients are impatiently waiting for their hair; they have doubts, but when the results are finalized, the FUE technique meets their expectations.

2 - Comments on DHI Hair Transplant Methods

The comments of those who prefer the DHI technique among hair transplant methods are largely similar. However, the patients here prefer this technique for regional transplantation and density gain. It is noteworthy that it meets expectations to a high extent.

How to Choose Among Hair Transplant Methods?

To choose among hair transplant methods, different parameters must be taken into account and comprehensive evaluations must be made. It should be remembered in this process that every patient is different, and no decision should be made without consulting with an experienced surgeon.

A choice is made among hair transplant methods by taking into account factors such as the size of the area to be transplanted, the number of grafts to be used, patient expectations, the number of healthy grafts in the donor area, the general health condition of the patient, and the number of sessions to be performed. Therefore, this choice is made by the patients and the surgeon who will operate and the patient. In addition, hair transplant prices are also taken into account in this process.

Frequently Asked Questions About Hair Transplant Methods

Frequently asked questions about hair transplant methods and the answers to these questions are listed below.

1 - Which is the Newest Hair Transplant Technique?

It can be stated that robotic hair transplant with DHI technique is one of the newest techniques. However, it should not be forgotten that there is a great similarity between the techniques widely used recently.


3 - What are Sapphire FUE Hair Transplant Methods?

Sapphire hair transplant is largely similar to the FUE technique. This situation is clearly understood from its name. The main difference in this method is using sapphire blades when opening the channels. Sapphire is a material that allows very precise incisions. In this way, the channels are opened to the desired ideal extent and the procedure's success rate increases slightly.

Opening the channels to the desired size with micro tips also positively affects the healing process after hair transplant. Crusting occurs less frequently and the process is more easily overcome.

Although hair transplantation with sapphire has a higher success rate, it is more costly. When hair transplant prices are examined, they are among the highest.

4 - What is DHI Hair Transplant Operation?

DHI technique is one of the newest methods and its success rate is extremely high. For this reason, it is one of the popular hair transplant methods. The steps followed in applying this method are as follows:

  • First, local anesthesia is applied and then the grafts are collected from the nape area.
  • The collected grafts are cleaned and placed in a pen called Choi Pen.
  • With Choi Pen, grafts are placed at the desired point at the desired angle.

Hair transplant performed with DHI has a higher success rate. This is because the collected grafts are quickly placed at the desired points. In addition, thanks to the pen, there is no need to open an extra channel and the grafts are placed in the perfect channel with the Choi pen.

5 - What are Robotic Hair Transplant Methods?

The robotic method generally follows similar procedures to the FUE technique. However, the operations here are performed using computer-aided tools. Therefore, human error is reduced to zero, and much more successful results are achieved. However, it is not a preferred method due to its high cost.

2 - Which are the Best Hair Transplant Methods?

The best method varies depending on the size of the area and the number of hair follicles to be transplanted. Therefore, the best hair transplant method depends entirely on the patient.

3 - Hair Transplant Methods: Is DHI or FUE Better?

DHI and FUE are similar techniques. In FUE, the hair follicle is placed into the opened canal, while in the DHI technique, it is placed directly with the Choi Pen without opening the canal. FUE is ideal if the number of grafts for hair transplantation is high and a large area is covered. DHI gives more effective results in cases where the number of grafts is not excessively high and the area to be transplanted is not large.

4 - How Long Does Hair Transplant Last?

Hair follicles transplanted through hair transplant are permanent. Therefore, this treatment lasts a lifetime. Unless different factors such as trauma and disease occur, these hairs do not fall out even in old age.

5 - Will There Be Any Scars After Hair Transplant?

In techniques such as FUE, DHI and sapphire FUE, dot scars remain and are not visible. However, in the FUT method, a large stitch scar remains in the nape area, and this scar causes aesthetic problems that are visible.
