Frequently Asked Questions about Hair Transplant

Are there cases where hair transplantation is unsuitable?

Hair transplant is not suitable when:
- The donor area does not have enough hair
- The patient suffers from unstable vitiligo or psoriasis
- The donor or recipient area is infected
- The patient is suffering from hypertension, keloidal tendency or alopecia areata 

Do I have to take any precautions before my hair transplant?

The hair transplant method we use in DHI, does not require any precautions before your appointment. Nevertheless, to avoid possible bleeding, it is best if you haven’t used any blood thinners at least seven days prior to your treatment.

How does the angle of the graft occur?

Implants are usually placed following the direction of the existing hair roots. When there is no point of reference, we follow an acute angle.

The final hairline formed is straight or a wavy?

It is not predefined, but it occurs depending on the shape of the patient’s face, so as to ensure an all-natural result.

How are the sideburns designed?

Depending on the physical characteristics of the patient's face, especially the corners, we pay extra attention on the sideburns, as they are a continuation of the hairline. Most of the time, we place grafts with single or double roots to get an evenly natural look.

In what way do you count the hair that will be used as grafts?

After we take the hair from the donor area, our experienced staff counts the hair using a microscope. Also, to ensure transparency, we suggest that patients capture photos of the grafts.

How thick should the hairline be while distributing the number of hairs?

Nearly up to 5-8% of hair can be implanted in the hairline area, a percentage that goes up to 15% if this area is the patient’s main concern.

Do men and women have the same hairline design?

Our experienced medical staff works with the patient and carefully designs the hairline, depending on the style that best suits the characteristics of the face. As male and female hairlines differ, we follow the existing curve, receding up on men and curving on women foreheads to get a more natural look. We measure the angles beginning at the lateral-most tip of the eyebrows.

The final hairline formed is straight or a wavy?

It is not predefined, but it occurs depending on the shape of the patient’s face, so as to ensure an all-natural result.

Which are the points of reference that lead to the final hairline?

The glabella, the arch of the eyebrows and the lateral tip of the eyebrows.

How are the sideburns designed?

Depending on the physical characteristics of the patient's face, especially the corners, we pay extra attention on the sideburns, as they are a continuation of the hairline. Most of the time, we place grafts with single or double roots to get an evenly natural look.
