Are you losing your hair? It's dreadful to be in such a situation. 

Hair loss is a legit problem not only in India but all over the globe. We cannot emphasize enough the importance of hair in enhancing the personality of a person.  

Hair is the first element that gets attention from other people. A nice hairstyle gives a boost to the personality both in the professional as well as in the personal realm. 

Hair makes a huge difference in personality, and it's no surprise that more and more people are getting hair transplants these days.

If you have decided to get a hair transplant, there are several options you can choose from. However, it’s quite overwhelming to choose the right option when each method has different benefits. 

Do you want to get a hair transplantation done?

Chandigarh has several clinics that offer hair transplantation services. However, the cost of a hair transplant in Chandigarh may vary.

Direct Hair Implantation, Follicular Unit Extraction, and FUT are common methods of hair transplant, but there is much contradictory information available, making it challenging to make decisions. 

In FUT, the strip of your hair is taken from the back of your scalp and is used to extract individual hair follicles. On the other hand, in FUE, follicles are directly removed from the scalp. In both these methods, the extracted follicles are implanted on the bald parts of the scalp.

However, Direct hair implantation is a modified version of FUE in which a pen-shaped tool is used to cut channels and implant hair follicles at the same time. 

Read this blog as we talk about DHI and compare it with other methods to help you make an informed decision. 

Direct Hair Implantation-

Direct hair implantation is the latest version of FUE. In this method, the surgeon uses a specialized pen to cut the channels and implant the hair follicles simultaneously. The process is similar to FUE. However, it is quick and done with minimal scarring. Moreover, in this method, the surgeon doesn't have to make the incision manually, but it is done using a Choi Implanter pen. The hair follicles are kept in this implant device which is precise and highly sensitive to complete the process.  

The time taken to complete both these surgeries is 8 hours. However, it may vary depending on the number of hair follicles required to be transplanted. Moreover, you will have to wait for 12 to 18 months for visible results. 

Difference between FUE and DHI

The primary difference between Direct hair implantation and Follicular unit extraction is the way follicles are implanted at the bald region. In FUE, the hair channels are opened, and implantation is done manually. On the other hand, in DHI Choi Implanter Pen is used to implant the follicles immediately after extraction. There is no need to create channels for manual implantation. 

Benefits of DHI

Direct Hair Implantation is an advanced method of hair transplantation devised by an organization named DHI Global Medical Group. It offers several benefits to the patients:

  • This method is highly precise and is performed using a specialized tool named Choi Implanter Pen, unlike other methods.
  • This treatment doesn’t involve much scarring 
  • The recovery process is faster
  • The success rate of DHI is approximately 95%.

DHI hair transplant cost

The cost of DHI varies depending on the country, state, city, clinic you visit, and the extent of baldness. On average, the cost of DHI in India ranges between 2 lakh to 5 lakh. The hair transplant clinics in Chandigarh offer one of the best services and results in the country. 

The cost of hair transplant in Chandigarh clinics varies from person to person, depending on the reason for hair fall, the condition of the scalp, and the number of hair follicles required to be implanted.

If you want to get it done at a cheaper price, then you may visit clinics with low hair transplant costs. But don't expect to get the best results, as low cost reflects the use of inefficient and outdated tools, unhygienic conditions, and inexperienced doctors.

Which method is better?

DHI is generally recommended for people who are under the age of 35 years because, in these patients, hair loss is comparatively less, and hair patterns are also different. Thus the success rate of DHI is more. FUE has minor side effects and leads to scars, while DHI doesn't. DHI is best for the smaller transplant areas. 


The bottom line is that choosing between DHI and FUE depends on a variety of factors, such as the quantity of donor's hair, rate of thinning, type of hair loss, and area that needs implantation. Since hair transplantation is a part of cosmetic surgery thus, it is recommended to go with the method that best suits the needs of the patient. If you are dreadful about constant hair loss, then you can consult experienced hair professionals for advice.
