Unshaven Hair Transplant

One of the most common concerns that people who wish to have a hair transplant have is that all of their hair have to be trimmed.It is reasonable to have such concerns because our hair has a direct impact on our appearance and image.

Can Hair Transplantation Be Performed Without Shaving the Hair?

Yes! Unshaven Hair Transplantation allows you to receive a hair transplant without shaving all of your hair.

. This method, called unshaved FUE, is an alternative method developed for people who do not want to look short-haired after hair transplantation. Unshaven hair transplantation can be an alternative solution for people who want to return to their business and social life in a short time and without having their hair cut.

What are the Differences of Unshaven Hair Transplantation from standard Hair Transplantation?

In shaved hair transplantation, the scalp must be cut as number 1 completely.

The reason for this is that shaved FUE has to be performed in dense hair transplantation, which we call the root, which is completely empty, especially in the crown area, which needs very dense hair transplantation, that is, between 3,000 and 5,000 grafts. Because a shave is required in the nape area for the collection of hair follicles.

It is possible to perform unshaven FUE in men and women where the transplantation area is small and hair transplantation can be performed in between.

Who Is Unshaven Hair Transplant Suitable For?
