  • Is it possible for a potential customer to meet/interact with existing customers who have benefited from DHI?

    We maintain complete privacy of our clients but we might be able to request a few of our clients to speak with you and share their experience and life after DHI.

  • Why do the implanted hairs not undergo a process of thinning?

    The implanted hairs are extracted from the back of the scalp, which is genetically determined to be resistant to the effect of testosterone, and DHT, and hence will never thin out as a result of male pattern baldness.

  • At what stage of hair loss, is a transplant suggested?

    Transplantation is suggested as early as stage-1 of the hair loss as hair transplantation is the only way to restore lost hair.

  • What is a bad donor area for hair transplants?

    A bad donor area could be: 1. Less area for extraction 2. Thin fragile roots which transects easily 3. Less density of hair

  • What can be the contraindications for hair transplant?

    The contraindications of hair transplant could be: 1) Very poor donor area 2) Keloidal tendency 3) Unstable vitiligo or psoriasis 4) Active infection on the donor or recipient area. 5) Alopecia areata 6) Hypertension.

  • What is a body hair transplant? From which body part is a body hair transplant taken?

    If your scalp has been damaged from previous strip surgeries or you have an advanced stage of hair loss, we can now move hair follicles from nearly every part of the body such as the back and chest. It is noted that the growth of beard hair is better than body hair. Beard hairs are naturally coarser than other body hairs and therefore, could provide better scalp coverage. Many leading hair restoration physicians also feel that using beard hair is more viable than hair from other parts of the body, which possess even shorter growth cycles.

  • Up to what age can transplants be done?

    Hair transplant can be done on clients from 18 – 65 years of age.

  • How do you decide the angle of the hair before implantation?

    We usually follow the angle of hair of the existing roots. If not present, we implant the new hair roots at an acute angle.
