In the FUT technique, which is a surgical operation cause incision is used, stitching is mandatory in the area where the incision is made. Sutures thrown into the donor area after 1 week should be removed. FUT technique is more affordable than other hair transplantation methods, but leaves scars. For this reason, it is not very preferred.

Although the DHI method is not very different from FUE, it is a more costly and highly demanding hair transplant method compared to the FUE method. In DHI hair transplantation, after the grafts taken with a surgical pen, the thickness of which is between 0.6 mm and 1 mm, are separated and cleaned, the hair follicles are transplanted directly without opening any roots to the scalp. In other hair transplantation methods, hair transplantation, which is done in two different times, is also called as direct hair transplantation since it is done in one time in this method. The biggest advantage of this method is that hair follicles can be transplanted more frequently and a more natural appearance is obtained. In addition, the scalp damage is less than other methods.

The FUE technique, on the other hand, started to be applied after 2002 and has yielded very successful and comfortable results. The biggest difference of the FUE hair transplant method compared to the previous hair transplant method is that the hair follicles in the nape region are collected one by one without creating a linear incision. In the graft collection process made using small punch tips, small incisions are formed around the follicular unit and the hair follicles are collected one by one as invovo and planted in the area where the hair loss occurs. planted. In the hair transplantation process with the FUE method, there is no need for stitches since there is no incision in the donor area and therefore no permanent scar is formed. In addition, different parts of the body can be used as a donor area with this method.
