DHT

Our own Dr Arika Bansal and Dr Pradeep Sethi have innovated a new technique in hair transplantation known as the Direct Hair transplant (DHT). The DHT technique provides you with healthy and natural looking hair. This pain free technique does not involve the use of scalpels either. It is a minimally invasive procedure which is painless and its recovery is very fast. After the completion of this procedure the new hair continues to grow naturally.

The main objective of this procedure is to elevate the survival and growth of the hair follicles by reducing their handling and the time for which they stay out of the skin. The hair follicles are implanted one by one directly to the recipient area which needs to be covered. Each hair follicle is placed in a particular direction, depth and angle that help achieve 100% natural results with maximum density. The hair growth can be seen within 2 months and full growth can occur in 8-9 months. The implanted hair continues to grow throughout the life of the patient person and they do not fall.

Hence the DHT technique is one of the most revolutionary techniques in the field of hair transplantation.

Introduction to Direct Hair Transplant

The Direct Hair transplant is the latest technique. It provides you healthy and natural looking hair. This technique does not involve the use of scalpels and the best part of this technique is that it is pain free. After the completion of this procedure the new hair continues to grow naturally throughout the life. The main objective of this procedure is to elevate the survival and growth of the hair follicles by reducing their handling and the time for which they stay out of the skin. In direct hair transplant technique the hair follicles are implanted one by one directly to the recipient area which needs to be covered. Each hair follicle is placed in a particular direction, depth and angle that help to get 100% natural results with maximum density. It is a minimally invasive procedure which is painless and its recovery is very fast. The hair growth can be seen within 2 months and full growth can happen in 8-9 months. The implanted hairs remain to grow throughout the life of a person and they do not fall.

What is the Procedure for Direct Hair Transplant?

  • Extraction Phase: The hair follicles are extracted one by one from the donor area of the scalp.
  • Placement Phase: The hair follicles are implanted directly into the recipient area in a single one-step process. It ensures the right depth, direction and angle at the same time. Why DHT is the Best Hair Transplantation Technique?

Why DHT is the Best Hair Transplantation Technique?

Direct hair transplant technique is the best hair technique because:

  • A DHT treatment is best suited for both male and female patients.
  • In maximum cases the patients are able to go back to their work the next day after the session.
  • A person can resume with cardio exercise and swimming two weeks after the session however the intense exercise as weight lifting etc. are able to be resumed four weeks after.
  • In the rare and extreme hair loss cases when hair on the back of the scalp are not sufficient to cover the recipient area then the facial and body hair may be used to complete the procedure.
  • The 100% results of direct hair transplant take about twelve months to show. However the visible results may be seen in two months.
  • There is no need to create incisions or slits in the recipient area; DHT uses a proprietary implanter which helps to implant hair follicles directly.
  • Unlike FUE and FUT hair transplantation methods does not include scalpels or stitches. The hair follicular units are extracted with the aid of specifically designed disposable tool. This prevents any trauma to the area.

Comparison between DHT and Normal FUE Method

Following are the reasons that show DHT is better than FUE:

  • Unlike FUE method, DHT does not include any incision making thus it does not show side-effect.
  • The entire process is painless and takes a little recovery time (from 2 to 4 days) whereas in FUE small incisions are made therefore it is painful and takes longer time to recover.
  • DHT permits a transplantation of up to 6000 hair strands whereas FUE allows the transplantation of up to 1500 to 2500 strands in one session.
  • DHT carries very less chances of infections as it uses fully disposable equipment for extraction the FUE that involves reuse of extraction equipment.
  • Shaving is not mandatory in case of DHT whereas in FUE shaving of the donor site is obligatory.
  • The DHT promises guaranteed results whereas the results of FUE vary from one person to the other.
  • DHT provides long lasting results whereas FUE is susceptible to errors because it involves the use of forceps and the direction or angle of the hair growth decided by the surgeon.
  • DHT is suitable for all hair types whereas FUE is restricted to only some specific hair types as people with curly hair texture cannot go for this method.

Step by Step Hair Transplantation

We as Hair Transplant surgeons both veteran and new have always struggled finding the right literature. When we (I and my wife) started out a decade ago we took baby steps as the ′know how’ of Hair Transplant was like finding an ′ember in ashes′. It was either strikingly beautiful or a complete mishap. Working over the years and dedicating our lives to hair transplant we have come a long way. This work is not just any literature but ‘A Hair Transplant journey′ through pictures which speak for themselves.

This book deals with all the practical aspects from the very point a patient walks in. It discusses the essence of detailed patient evaluation which is of utmost importance to bring out the best results. Special chapter committed to our practice of Direct Hair Transplantation, which drastically decreases ‘out of the body time′ of grafts hence maximises the growth of the planted grafts. Anaesthesia chapter deals with tips and tricks of painless, adequate and safe pain management. Emphasis on artistry while making the anterior hairline is made known as it is the naturalness which is sought after.

Reconstruction of different imported areas like temple, hump, mid scalp and crown and the valid things to be kept in mind are highlighted. Body Hair Transplant makes grade 7 baldness easily doable; as beard hair grows wonderfully on scalp and produce outstanding results in expert hands. This also brings light to the Mega and Giga sessions which are done to cover large area at one go. Graft scoring and handling takes centre stage as they are fragile and complete care of them throughout is paramount. This book also deals with complications that one must be aware of during and post surgery. Corrective surgery are often always seen these days and when taken up should be anatomized well. Female Hair Transplant is done much more commonly and we do lot of them in our practice hence a detailed account. Eyebrow and Eyelash Transplant and the expectations regarding them are given in detail.

This book also talks about the kernel aspects of setting up a HT centre and photography. Lastly it also includes a comprehensive case of HT in Cicatricial Alopecia which is always a challenge. All in all this book gives out the empirical facet of Hair Transplantation and the entirety of it. It is an attempt to make Hair Transplantation science more understandable and accessible. We are sure this will benefit everyone and the knowledge acquired through the years will live and be passed on forever.
