The grafts taken from the donor area are placed in the Choi pen. With the Choi pen, grooving and graft transplantation can be performed at the same time. While pushing the hair root, it simultaneously places the hair root in the channel it opens on the scalp. Choi pen tips are selected individually according to the thickness of the hair before the operation.
