A receding hairline and thinning hair can have a negative impact on your life, increasing stress and anxiety levels, causing loss of self-confidence. But how do you select a hair transplant procedure that can guarantee natural-looking results and not make the situation worse? Direct hair implantation, the most advanced hair restoration procedure available today, offers the ideal solution.
What is Direct Hair Implantation?
Direct hair implantation is an advanced, minimally invasive hair transplant technique. It utilizes state-of-the-art extraction and implantation tools to restore hair in balding areas providing long-lasting 100% natural results transforming the hopes and expectations of our patients.
Why is Direct Hair Implantation superior to other hair transplant methods?
Traditional hair implant techniques place emphasis on the number of hair follicles implanted but do not consider the follicle survival rate after implantation. They may also leave scars that are visible under short hair. The many advantages of Direct Hair Implantation include the following:
- Direct hair implantation is only performed by a certified surgeon ensuring quality and consistency of the very highest level.
- The surgeon can control the direction, the angle, and the depth of implantation of each hair follicle in the affected area using a specially designed tool called the implanter.
- Small-diameter punches of 1 mm or less are used to extract hair follicles one by one from the donor area.
- Extracted hair follicles are kept in a special preservative solution which leads to a high survival rate of over 90% compared to 60%-70% using traditional techniques.
- Minimal donor hairs are required due to the high survival rate.
- Careful attention to detail and precise placement of each hair follicle ensures the hair graft lasts longer, there are no visible scars, and the final look has a perfectly natural appearance.
What can you expect from Direct Hair Implantation?
The actual length of the procedure may be about 6-7 hours. This is because we ensure every effort is taken to facilitate precise placement of each hair follicle guaranteeing the perfect outcome. The procedure is painless with no scalpels or stitches used. Expect to be amazed by the results of direct hair implantation! Furthermore, the recovery time is very short, and you can expect to return to work the very next day.

Absolutely Natural Results for Lifetime
With Direct Hair Implantation hair follicles are implanted one by one directly to the thinning area that needs to be covered. The hair transplant method that we use is the most advanced method of hair restoration; Even more advanced than FUE and FUT kmethods.Each hair follicle is placed in a specific direction, angle and depth, an implanter, providing 100% natural results with the maximum growth rate in hair restoration. The transplanted hairs continue to grow throughout a person’s lifetime with maximum retention. This method of placement allows a chance to provide high hair density to the patient, provides non shaved placement, more natural looking appearance, improves the survival rate of the hair follicle, reduces trauma to the scalp, minimizes scarring and contributes fast healing and placement without opening extra channels.
What is FUE hair transplant?
Follicular transplantation is a hair restoration surgery that is based on the fact that hair grows in groups and not as individual strands. Follicular unit extraction (FUE) is a hair transplant procedure where natural groups of hair (follicular units) are individually extracted from hair-bearing areas on the back or sides of the scalp (regions more resistant to balding), chest, or back (donor sites) and transplanted to the balding areas of the head (recipient sites).
What does the FUE hair transplant procedure involve?
The procedure is carried out under sedation and local anesthesia. The hair on the donor site is cut short or shaved. Follicular units containing 1-4 hairs along with nerves, blood vessels and muscle are extracted microscopically as a whole using micro needles (cylindrical punches) directly from the scalp. The follicles are extracted over a wide area so as to not reduce the hair density too much. The extracted follicle units are kept viable in a holding solution while they await transplantation. Antibiotic ointment is applied over the donor sites.
The size of the recipient area is determined by your natural hairline, facial appearance and ethnic background so as to make the transplant as natural as possible. The recipient site is prepared by making slit incisions with custom-made blades or needles, which can be adjusted to match the size of the follicular units. These slits are made so as to orient the transplanted hair to match natural hair growth. Most of the incisions are made in the planned recipient site after which implantation is done. This is followed by a phase of fine tuning where more incisions are made and follicles transplanted to perfect the hairline and appearance. No sutures or bandages are necessary after the procedure and the head can be covered by a cap.
What are the advantages and disadvantages of FUE hair transplant?
Follicular unit extraction is advantageous as it does not leave a scar and is less painful compared to other follicular unit transplant procedures where a large section of the scalp is removed from the donor site. However, the procedure is time consuming and is not indicated where extensive hair transplant is required.
The whole hair transplant procedure is performed by doctors trained and certified in the field of hair transplantion.
