resolved to the customer's satisfaction
DHI is claiming to have a patented procedure (unique method) of hair replacement (hair transplant) in India.
The truth is that it is nothing but FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) method which is performed by several other doctors and companies in India and across the world. FUE method on its own have some serious limitations and once must learn them loud and clear!
DHI is claiming this procedure to be a Non-Surgical (Cosmetic) procedure.
It is a complete lie. The truth is that, it’s a Surgery performed by plastic surgeons after giving anaesthesia. It is a matter of common sense that without performing surgery how can a surgeon remove and plant follicles from and into human scalp!! Yes the surgeries in last 5 years have gone to a different level and its much more harmless and simpler but to call it Non-Surgical is a big huge fat lie!!
DHI is claiming this procedure to be a NO TOUCH procedure.
A big marketing gimmick and a blatant lie. How can anyone remove and plant follicles without a surgical equipment touching your scalp? Are they trying to say that they don’t touch your scalp with their hands? If yes, then wherever in the world FUE or FUT methods are performed all the doctors and companies plant follicles without touching your scalp with hands and only using surgical equipments anyways!!
DHI is claiming that there will be no scars.
All the doctors in India and abroad when they perform FUE method it create small dots and FUT method a fine line, there are no scars anyways. And the fine line or dots are only slightly visible if you shave your head so Its not something new or different what DHI is claiming or doing.
For anyone undergoing Hair Replacement (Hair Transplant) procedure the ultimate role is played by a Doctor more then a method or a company. Bottom line is how skilful, artistic and experienced the doctor is and how many surgeries the doctor has performed and what kind of final results he has achieved. That matters the most and not the method!! DHI has recruited 3-5 newly passed outs doctors in India to perform FUE method, who are only trained for 6 months and these doctors have no or very limited experience and track record! Do you want to risk a surgery with new kid on the block which will determine how will you eventually look for the rest of your life?!! Think twice!!!
Giving more importance to the Method then a Doctor!!
DHI (Direct Hair Implant) is a company and the procedure they perform is FUE method. By calling their procedure DHI procedure they are trying to misguide people of India. As they have Non-experience doctors, they are trying to promote FUE method as DHI method but they don’t tell any patients know as to which doctor would be performing the procedure!! Yet again, question of common sense that the maximum importance should be given to the Doctor, his experience, his track record, his own end results and many more areas related to his background and not to FUE method performed by DHI.
The biggest limitation of DHI and in what they perform which is FUE method is that in 1 session they are not able to plant more then 3, 000 hair! More then 90% doctors across the world disapprove FUE method and the reason is every human is born with approximately 100, 000 hair. The area which is prone to hair loss (Top of the head) has 50, 000 to 60, 000 hair. If a person has lost even 20% to 100% hair on top of his scalp that means (minimum of 15, 000 to 50, 000 hair), DHI can only give you 2500 to 3000 hair back!!! Million dollar question is that what about the remaining 12, 000 to 47, 000 hair??!! How will you get that back?!! Can 3, 000 hair compensate the actual requirement of 15, 000 or 50, 000 hair?!! How would you style your hair with 2500 to 3000 hair when the requirement is of 40, 000 to 50, 000 hair?
The other big limitation of DHI is they are only able to plant new hair through FUE (DHI method) where the follicles are dead in bald areas. They are not able to save your existing hair which you’re born with!!. So tomorrow if you get 3, 000 new hair, what about the areas where you still have your own natural hair? How will you save it? Tomorrow if you start losing your own hair, it will start developing very ugly looking patches on your scalp. The last thing you want is to have ugly looking patches on your scalp! Imagine your appearance with patchy scalp?!!!
DHI is hiding a very important point from all the clients and doing something which is highly unethical. In FUE method (So called DHI method), the wastage of follicles is minimum 20% to 25%. That means if they remove 100 hair follicles, they are planting only 75 to 80 hair on your scalp but they are hiding this from client. A minimum of 20% or more is wasted in the process and are not replanted! When a client is under anaesthesia, he does not realise what is removed and planted and what is wasted!! But when it comes to charging people they charge people on the basis of what they have removed, and not on the basis of what they have planted!! That means if 3, 000 follicles are removed, less then 2400 are planted and 600 or more are wasted but you’re asked to pay for 3, 000 which is highly unethical.
From a client’s point of view every human has a limited amount of hair at the back of their head (donor area), which can be planted on the top of their scalp. So why would you want to waste 25% of your own follicles after they are removed which are priceless. At the same time why would you want to pay for something which is not even planted? Rather what is wasted?!!
Budget wise DHI is charging Rs.100 to Rs.150 per hair follicle. That means to get 3, 000 hair you will be spending a minimum of Rs. 3 lacs to 4 lacs but you will only get 2400 or less hair on top of your scalp. Lets go back to the fact that if you need 40, 000 to 50, 000 hair on top to restore your appearance and if you only get 2400 hair after spending more then 3 lacs, what results and satisfaction would you get? If you want 40, 000 hair, will you spend 40 to 60 lacs ($100, 000 USD)? Even if you want to spend 1 crore rupees to get a full head of hair, unfortunately no doctor and no company can remove and plant that many hair on top as clinically its proven that your donor area in 1 session of surgery will only allow 2500 to 3000 hair through FUE method and 5000 to 6000 hair through FUT method but not more. You can always do multiple sessions of surgeries but maximum through FUE method you can get 8, 000 to 9, 000 hair and FUT 9, 000 to 15, 000 hair but they cannot fulfil a requirement of 50, 000 hair.
Virendra Sehwag is DHI’s biggest lie on the basis of which people are misguided in 3 major areas.
- Virendra Sehwag only got 2800 to 3000 hair at the front through FUE (DHI method) so he only from the front he looks as if he has full head of hair but when you see him from the sides or back he is still more then half bald and when he bowls in any cricket match, you can see his bald areas that are clearly visible.
- The pictures used by DHI in magazines and newspapers is only from the front and is computerised otherwise we all know how he looks today!!
- In Virendra Sehwag’s TV commercials they use wig to cover his bald areas at the back (crown area) but when he is on the cricket field and is bowling, we all can see that he is more then half bald!
The truth is that Virendra Sehwag’s surgery was performed by doctor called Dr. Eleftherios Papanikolaou who used to come to India from Greece but even he could only give Sehwag less then 25% of his hair back compare to what was required and he is still more then half bald. The bigger truth is that Dr. Papanikolaou no longer comes to India to perform surgeries. Why is DHI showing results of Virendra Sehwag to India of a doctor who doesn’t even come to India? Why are they trying to sell their highly new and inexperienced doctors by showing results of a completely different doctor?
DHI is claiming to perform surgeries for many bollywood actors but can someone ask them for a proof ? These are all false claims. If they have performed surgeries for even a single bollywood actor, why are they not using the name of the actor, his before and after results, pictures in newspapers and magazines. Why are they only using false and unethical images of Virendra Sehwag?
India, beware of DHI. This company by franchising the business to make money is misguiding Indian people in countless areas like
• Calling FUE method DHI method
• Trying to hide serious limitations of this method including the wastage of follicles.
• Promoting 4-5 inexperienced doctors who are newly passed outs and hiding these serious facts from people.
• Hiding the wastage of follicles part and charging people on something which is not even planted!
• Hiding a million $$$$ fact that after spending 3 to 5 lakhs rupees you will only get 2500 to 3000 hair and they will not be enough to restore your appearance!
• Showing Sehwag’s computerised image when the truth is he is still more then 50% bald!
• Hiding the truth about who performed Sehwag’s surgery to promote inexperienced doctors.
• False claims about bollywood and other people without having any proofs!
