Decoding FUE Hair Transplant Techniques: A Closer Look at DHI and PFP Similarities

Dr Murray

Demystifying FUE Hair Transplant Techniques

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) has revolutionised the field of hair transplantation, offering precision and natural results. Within the realm of FUE, two distinct methodologies have emerged—Direct Hair Implantation (DHI) and Precise Follicle Placement (PFP). By understanding the underlying parallels, you’ll gain insight into how these techniques, often regarded as distinct, share a common foundation in precision and artistry.



At first glance, Direct Hair Implantation (DHI) and Precise Follicle Placement (PFP) may appear as distinct methodologies within the realm of Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). However, upon closer examination, we uncover that they share a fundamental principle: meticulous graft placement and strategic incision crafting.


The Common Foundation:

  1. Graft Placement Precision: Both DHI and PFP emphasise the precise placement of harvested follicles. DHI achieves this through the Choi implanter pen, which creates controlled incisions and simultaneously implants grafts. In PFP, the micro-incisions are crafted beforehand with attention to angles and directions for optimal graft integration.
  2. Minimised Trauma: Both techniques aim to minimise trauma to grafts and recipient areas. DHI’s immediate implantation reduces graft exposure time, while PFP’s pre-made incisions reduce the risk of graft and tissue damage.
  3. Natural Aesthetics: DHI and PFP share the goal of achieving natural-looking results. Whether through immediate implantation or meticulously crafted incisions, both methods ensure grafts are placed in a manner that mirrors natural hair growth.


A Unified Approach

While DHI and PFP may be presented as separate techniques, their underlying philosophy centres around precision, control, and natural aesthetics. By viewing them through this unified lens, we gain a deeper appreciation for the meticulous artistry that defines both methodologies.


Tailoring the Technique to You

As you explore options for hair restoration, it’s essential to consult with an experienced doctor who can guide you toward the most suitable approach. Whether it’s DHI or PFP, or a combination thereof, the choice should be based on your individual needs, desired outcomes, and the expertise of the surgeon.

In essence, while DHI and PFP may be presented with distinct names, they share a common commitment to precision, graft survival, and natural results. By embracing the shared foundation of these techniques, you empower yourself to make an informed decision regarding your hair restoration journey. Connect with a reputable clinic and a qualified doctor to embark on this transformative path with confidence, knowing that you’re choosing an approach rooted in artistry and medical expertise.


A Multitude of Choices for Individualised Results

New Hair Clinic stands apart for its dedication to offering a wide spectrum of hair transplantation techniques. Recognising that every patient’s situation is unique, our clinic provides the flexibility to select the approach that aligns best with each individual’s specific needs and goals.


Why Offer Both FUT and FUE?

FUT and FUE represent distinct avenues to hair restoration, each with its own set of advantages. Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) involves the removal of a thin strip of donor tissue, from which grafts are meticulously harvested and transplanted. Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), on the other hand, involves the individual extraction of follicles from the donor area for implantation into the recipient site. By offering both options, we ensure that patients have access to a range of choices, allowing them to make an informed decision based on their preferences, expectations, and hair loss patterns.


The Essence of Personalization: DHI and PFP Techniques

Within the realm of FUE, our clinic goes a step further by offering specialised techniques—Direct Hair Implantation (DHI) and Perforation Follicle Placement (PFP). These methods exemplify our commitment to personalisation and precision. DHI’s immediate graft implantation and PFP’s strategic incision crafting both contribute to optimal graft survival and natural results. Our aim is to provide patients with a nuanced approach that respects their individuality and addresses their unique hair restoration goals.


Rejecting the Cookie-Cutter Approach

At New Hair Clinic, we firmly reject the notion of a one-size-fits-all treatment plan. Hair loss is a complex and nuanced concern, and our approach is rooted in recognising and respecting these intricacies. By offering a range of techniques and methods, we ensure that every patient receives a treatment plan that is tailored to their specific needs, hair characteristics, and expectations. New Hair Clinic are one of the only clinics in Perth that offer a hair loss consultation with a doctor not a sales person.


Your Path to Transformed Confidence

In the realm of hair restoration, choice is key. New Hair Clinic’s commitment to offering a multitude of options—FUT, FUE, DHI, and PFP—reflects our dedication to delivering outcomes that are both medically sound and personally satisfying. By selecting the treatment approach that resonates with you, you’re embarking on a journey to renewed self-esteem and transformed confidence.


Book a consultation with our experienced doctor to explore the full spectrum of options available to you. Together, we’ll craft a personalised plan that ensures your hair restoration journey is as unique as you are. At New Hair Clinic, your transformation is our priority.
