Hair Transplantation Operation
Hair transplantation operation is a non- surgical procedure, in which hair follicles are transferred from the donor area, i.e. the back of the scalp, to the receiving area; i.e. the bald areas to be treated.
Techniques Used in Hair Transplantation
There are several key techniques used in hair transplantations:
(FUE) Technology With this technology, the follicles are picked out from the donor area via the Micro Motor, and transplanted into the receiving area by opening fine channels in the bald areas with precise medical forceps. The operation takes around (6-8) hours, transplanting up to (4000) follicles.
(Mega FUE) technology Mega FUE is undergone over two sessions during two consecutive days, transplanting a maximum of (8000) follicles, and giving the hair more density.
(Ultimate FUE) Ultimate FUE differs from FUE in terms of the medical scalpel which is made of fine blue sapphire that prevents damage to the scalp during the picking process.
(DHI) Technology The doctor opens channels in the areas of baldness that due to be treated with Choi Pen Implanters, then he implants the extracted follicles which are up to (3500). He does all this simultaneously with one click. The whole process takes around (6-8) hours.
(Mega DHI) technology The (Mega DHI) technique is performed over two sessions during two consecutive days, using the Choi pens. However, with (Mega DHI), a maximum of (7000) follicles are transplanted, giving the hair more density and attractiveness.
Extremely DHI Technology Extremely DHI Technology goes through the same stages of DHI technique, however, it enables the doctor to transplant up to 5000 follicles during 12-15 hours over only a session.

Stages of Hair Transplantation
Hair transplantation process goes through several stages:
First Stage: The density of the donor area, the area to be implanted and the number of follicles to be picked out are determined. The front line is drawn.
Second Stage: The patient undergoes the necessary tests and checkups, which are blood tests and some dermatology examinations.
Third Stage: In this stage, the entire hair is shaved, in the case of hair transplantation was to be conducted with (FUE) technique. If the DHI technique or Robot technique was to be used, then only the donor area is shaved, in order to facilitate the process of picking the follicles out. The patient then is anesthetized with a local anesthesia.
Fourth Stage: In this stage, the doctor picks out the follicles from the donor area via the Micro Motor, and they are placed in saline called Hypothermosol, in order to keep the follicles alive out of the body as long as possible.
Fifth Stage: This is the stage of hair transplantation. If (FUE) technique is used, the channels are opened, then the extracted follicles are transplanted into those channels using medical forceps. If (DHI) technique is used, the follicles are placed in Choi pens, and with one click the channels are opened and the follicles are implanted at the same time.
