The need for a psychological investigation for patients intending to proceed with hair restoration has been highlighted by a recent BBC report; a fact that DHI has been advocating for a long time and who now has included a Stress Analysis in its routine diagnostic procedure.

In particular, during the extensive BBC report, an emphasis was placed on the psychological burden caused by hair loss concluding that patients who are planning to undergo hair transplantation should first be psychologically evaluated.

“Some people have underlined low self-esteem and the surgery is not actually going to fix anything. They are not going to be happy afterword’s and maybe they are going to focus on other areas they want to improve and this becomes addictive” psychologist Becky Spelman told the BBC.

On BBC’s video, a young patient talks about his decision of undergoing the procedure, stating his goal is to regain his lost self-confidence.

BBC’s report is another validation for DHI, who now have included a Psychological Test as an integral part of the diagnostic process. Furthermore, DHI is the only medical organization in the world that examines and considers the psychological burden of hair loss, proposing specific therapeutic plans, when necessary.

The DHI Stress Analysis was developed in collaboration with academics from the Medical School of the University of Athens and is part of the DSA diagnostic system that provides a complete and personalized diagnosis for all types of alopecia, both in men and women suffering from hair loss.

DHI has developed and offers the finest and safest hair restoration in the world. Direct Hair Implantation offers 100% natural results guaranteed for a lifetime and unlike other techniques, it does not include any scars. Direct Hair Implantation is the only technique currently taught at an academic level by public European universities and is being copied by hundreds of clinics and physicians around the world. Unfortunatellly, many men are taking risks, stepping into the unknown because they are desperate, and often because they are seduced by a cheaper option.

For DHI, hair loss is a systemic disease and needs personalized systemic treatment. 

With 48 years of experience, 68 clinics worldwide and over 250,000 satisfied patients, the DHI Global Medical Group is the world leader in the diagnosis, prognosis, prevention and treatment of hair loss.
