The choice between FUE or DHI procedure depends on several reasons such as the patient's hair loss classification, the size of the thinning area and quantity of available donor hair. Since hair transplant is a very personal treatment, it is believed that the technique that meets a patient's expectation the most is the one that gives best results.
Both FUE and DHI are different types of hair transplant techniques that can help you in achieving your desired look. However, there are certain differences between FUE technique and DHI technique. This is why it is important for an individual to know which of these hair transplant techniques would be the best solution for a satisfied look. Some of these differences can be listed as follows:
- The FUE method is ideal for covering large areas, whereas the DHI method provides a better possibility for achieving higher density. If the patient has severe hair loss and bald patches are too wide to be covered, even if the patient wants to undergo a one session hair transplant procedure using the DHI method, he/she will be a better candidate for the FUE technique. The reason for this is that the FUE technique enables to harvest higher amounts of grafts in a single session.
- The DHI method has a faster recovery period.
