Hair transplant methods and technologies are improving as the demand for such aesthetic operations increases. As surgeons and clinics become more and more confident in the hair transplant operations, they start to implement different approaches to the traditional procedures to meet various expectations of the patients and provide more comfortable experiences such as unshaven hair transplant.
It is understandable if you do not want to cut your hair short for aesthetic concerns; or if you want to keep your hair transplant a secret. When these factors are considered, people suffering from hair thinning give up on the idea of undergoing a hair transplant operation.
Fortunately, with the help of the unshaven hair transplant technique, the patients without losing their existing hair can have a successful unshaven hair transplant.
Unshaven hair transplant is proven to be an entirely successful surgery for those in need of hair treatment. Although the unshaven hair transplant operation technique is similar to traditional FUE, unshaven hair transplantation requires much more work because it is challenging to extract and incise hair follicles. In contrast, the patients’ hair is not shaved.
What are the steps of unshaven hair transplantation?
The unshaven FUE hair transplant technique is not completely different from the traditional FUE technique. The donor area needs to be trimmed in a way that gives an undercut/bald fade hairstyle which will not change your daily look dramatically.
However. the main difference is that the recipient area is not shaved at all.
Then the hair grafts are extracted carefully from the donor area and collected in a special solution to ensure follicle viability.
After a specific number of hair grafts are collected, they are transplanted around the existing hair which is not shaved.
Unshaven hair transplant is suitable for both men and women. Especially unshaven female hair transplant is relatively easier as women generally have more hair to cover their donor area and do not need to change their hairstyle because of the operation. While most female hair transplants are conducted with the unshaven method, for men the tendency is the opposite.
