Hair implantation procedure
1. Extraction Phase::Using a disposable tool designed specifically for this procedure, the hair follicles are extracted by the specialist doctor one by one from the donor area, located on the back of the head. The extracted follicles are kept at a specific temperature and with a solution that allows us to maintain their vitality intact until they are grafted. The extraction instrument has a diameter of or less than 1mm, so it does not leave scars or cause pain. This phase of the procedure lasts approximately 4 hours.
2. Rest: Once the Extraction Phase is completed, the patient can rest for approximately 30 minutes while preparing for the Implantation Phase. During the break, you may enjoy a meal in the company of your family..
3. Fase de implantación: The follicles are implanted in the region presenting hair loss, using a tool patented by DHI Global Medical Group, which also has a diameter of or less than 1mm. This tool allows us to have greater precision in the direction, depth and angle during the implant, thus accomplishing a 100% natural appearance. During this phase of the procedure you can watch TV or check your cell phone, since you will feel no discomfort or pain. The procedure will not leave holes or fissures.
Natural results: Thanks to the implant of DHI we can have total control of the depth, direction and angle of the follicle placement, ensuring 100% natural results, maximum viability and permanence.
WHY CHOOSE DHI GLOBAL MEDICAL GROUP?
With the Direct Hair Implantation technique of DHI, the follicles are implanted one by one, directly in the area presenting hair loss. The implantation is done with the “DHI Implanter”, an instrument specially designed and patented by DHI with which the direction, angle, and depth of each graft is completely controlled; thus guaranteeing a result of 100% natural appearance.
For each implant we select only the strongest follicles of the scalp, which allows us to ensure that our patients receive the maximum success rate, between 90 and 97% effectiveness. Since the implanted follicles do not carry the gene that causes them to weaken and fall, the implanted hair will grow naturally for life.

In addition to this, surgeons must renew their certification each year based on the quality of its results.
Rapid Healing and Continuous Growth
The follicular units are removed with the DHI tool, which due to its tiny diameter design (from 0.6 mm to 1.0 mm), leaves no scars.
In our procedure there are no stitches or scalpels. The bleeding is minimal and healing takes between 3 and 4 days.
For the first days post-procedure, the patient will be given a prescription of the following antibiotics and anti-inflammatories:
- 1 tablet on the same day as the procedure
- 1 tablet every 12 hours for 4 days
- 1 tablet on the same day as the procedure
- Thenext day 1 tablet in the morning and 1/2 tablet in the afternoon
- Onthe third day 1/2 tablet in the morning and 1/2 in the afternoon
- As of the 2nd day, 1 tablet daily for 4 days
- 1 tablet only advisable in case of pain
Precautions to take before and after the session:
- One week before the procedure:
- Donot consume vitamins, aspirin, alcohol and tobacco
- Every patient who suffers from diabetes, high blood pressure, heart problems, or who takes psychiatric medications, requires special advice by the Total Care Consultant.
- Afterthe procedure:
- Avoid any heavy exercise (eg, lifting weights or swimming) for the next 30 days.
- Light exercise (Ex: walking) can be retaken after 7 days post-procedure.
- Avoid exposing the scalp to the sun for 15 days post-procedure.
The technique is practically painless and causes less irritation than a tattoo. It is performed under local anesthesia so that the patient can relax, listen to music, watch TV, enjoy a light lunch and even nap during the procedure.
Each DHI session is performed under local anesthesia. Anesthesia is injected into the donor site during capillary removal and then into the recipient area at the time of follicle implantation. This is to ensure that the client does not feel pain throughout the procedure.
Local anesthesia can last from 6 to 8 hours.
The patient will not feel any pain even after local anesthesia. You will only feel a kind of tingling or itching.
There will be absolutely no mark or scar after the DHI technique, rather than a slight reddening in the donor area, which will be completely relieved over the course of a week. After finishing the procedure, the donor area (area where the hair is removed) will be bandaged to prevent any infection. This bandage can be removed the next day.
As we extract the follicles or root, the hair does not grow back. However, it has been noted that in 5% of cases the hair grows back because part of the root remains inside.
The final result can be seen after 12 months of the procedure that the hair has grown and matured, even though the hair growth is visible from the first month. It should be noted that as in a natural cycle of hair, it will fall off and will grow back 3 to 5 months after the procedure.
The success rate generally varies between 90 and 97% depending on several external and internal factors.
The consultation lasts approximately 45 minutes.
The consultation process involves:
- Do an alopecia test to evaluate hair quality
- Do a mathematical calculation to determine the number of hair that can be extracted and implanted
- Discuss the design of the hairline and its distribution, to give a natural result and with the best possible density.
The average healing period is 3 to 5 days.
Yes, medical treatment must be continued to preserve and delay the process of existing hair baldness.
