Indications and contraindications for hair transplantation
Alopecia can either be an independent condition or accompany other conditions. Therefore, it is important to understand what caused the hair loss and whether DHI transplantation will be effective.
Hair transplantation is indicated for the following conditions:
- standard marginal alopecia;
- hair loss due to changes in hormonal background;
- skin injuries with hair (burns, abrasions, etc.).
Contraindications to the procedure are:
- Autoimmune forms of alopecia;
- Skin neoplasms in the intervention area;
- Decompensated diabetes mellitus;
- Seborrhea, psoriasis, severe dermatitis in the transplant area;
- Hemophilia and other blood clotting disorders.
The final decision to perform the procedure is made by a doctor, based on the results of a general examination and diagnosis.
Hair transplantation by DHI method: how to perform the procedure
One of the main advantages of DHI-transplantation is the absence of hair shaving before transplantation. As a result, transplanted grafts look as natural as possible and blend in with the surrounding hair after skin healing.
The method is based on the extraction of the graft (hair follicle + body of the hair) using a special scalpel. Depending on the shape of the extractor blade, there are 2 formats of DHI hair transplantation:
● Classic - grafts are extracted using an instrument with a rounded U-shaped blade. The doctor pierces the skin in the donor area, extracting several follicles. Then the skin is pierced in the donor area, and under optical control the grafts are inserted into the follicle bed. The thickness of the puncture is 0.7 mm - a standard diameter for such procedures.
● The minimally invasive DHI Sapphire is the optimal method for hair transplantation in women as well as for hair transplantation in areas with thinner skin. In this format of the procedure, the transplant blade has a sharp V-shape. Due to the shape, the tool is less traumatic for the skin: the diameter of the puncture is only 0.5 mm. The recovery period in this format of the procedure is shortened by 2-3 days on average, and the number of hairs in the scheduled rejection period is reduced.
The cost of hair transplantation using the DHI method
The price of DHI hair transplantation depends on:
- the format of the transplant (classic or Sapphire DHI technique);
- number of grafts;
- the need for advanced diagnostics (in the presence of chronic diseases).
The average procedure ranges from $620 (clinics in Turkey) to $5,000 (Israeli clinics).

The best countries to treat alopecia
Most often medical tourists come to Turkey for hair transplantation. Modern clinics, no visa regime, excellent prices - these 3 factors make Turkey the leader among other countries offering hair transplants.
Is DHI transplantation suitable for women?
Yes, this type of transplantation can be used in women. Doctors prefer to use the DHI Sapphire modification, which reduces skin trauma by about 30%.
What is the recovery time after a DHI transplant?
The active rehabilitation period (skin healing) for DHI-transplantation takes up to 10 days. This is followed by the first controlled hair loss with the beginning of a new recovery period. The final result of the procedure is noticeable on average 21-28 days after transplantation.
Do I need a second hair transplant after the procedure?
Re-transplantation may be necessary in the following cases:
- the rules of care of the transplant area have been violated;
- stress hair loss during the rehabilitation period exceeded the recommended norm;
- the patient has comorbidities that complicate skin healing and the process of hair engraftment.
The need for a second transplant is determined by the doctor based on the results of the examination.
