Medihair Review
This score evaluates the most important factors of a hair transplantation (e.g. hair line and donor) and is based on the opinion of the patient.
Clinic Name: DHI Vienna
Clinic Location: Austria

Donor Management

It is important the surgeon doesn’t overharvest the area where the transplants are extracted leaving it overly thin and unnatural in appearance.
9 /10
The donor area appears to be natural with no sign of harvesting. The clinic chose an appropriate graft number considering the age and the hair loss degree of the patient. A final assessment based on the available photos of the extraction area was possible.

Hair Line Aesthetic & Design

Doctors should design an aesthetically pleasing, natural and age appropriate hairline for their patient.
10 /10
The hairline will still appear age appropriate in the future and grafts will be saved for future surgeries. A conservative hair line was chosen. The photos are sufficient for a final assessment of the hair line aesthetic and design.

Treatment & Method Appropriateness

The doctor should be able to assess the patient’s hair loss for the most suitable method, e.g. FUE or FUT.
10 /10
In the present case it seemed to be that the DHI method is suitable. To increase the possibilities of a successful, lasting result it is necessary to take hair loss medication like minoxidil and finasteride. However, the patient is apparently not treating its hair loss with medication.


In order to achieve a visual sufficient density usually 30+ grafts per cm² need to be transplanted.
9 /10
The transition area of native and transplanted hair is undetectable and the overall density was not improved by hair loss medication like Finasteride and Minoxidil.

Doctor Involvement

The more involved a doctor is involved in the surgery process, the better the quality and consistency a patient can expect.
10 /10
The hair surgeon conducts the pre- and post-consultation as well as the extraction of the grafts. He also does the opening of the channels in the recipient area. Insertion of the hair follicles are done by technicians. This normally ensures consistent and reliable results.
Patient Review
