Unshaven Technique

The hair loss in men typically starts in the front side of the head and then slowly it continues with the top of the head and finally the whole upper side hair loss takes place over the head. This is how it normally proceeds. By this token, it is possible to apply the FUE method without shaving the hair and plant the strands to essential areas.

Basicallythe Unshaven hair transplant method focuses on people who have NOT lost a considerably big area of their hairs. It is more suitable for patients who have a particular loss of hair on their heads.

However, on the other hand, if a person has lost a considerably big area on their head, it is then imperative to have the scalp shaved. In a nutshell, it is up to how big the hair loss is in a particular area of the head.

Operation Procedure

Unshaven Hair Transplant Procedure Steps

Similar to a standard FUE hair transplant, with the help of a one-millimeter in diameter instruments, such as small punch or forceps, each individual follicular unit is extracted from the donor area at a time. These grafts are maintained in optimal condition, soaked into an isotonic saline solution.

Once the extraction procedure has been completed, the small holes at the donor area are left to heal, and as soon as the follicular grafts are ready, razor blades or needles of 1 mm in width and 5–6 mm in length are prepared, for making incisions at the recipient area. In DHI, the incision step is skipped and the hair placement is immediately started with a Choi pen. As for FUE, the hair grafts are strategically implanted in each cut one by one, depending on the number of the hairs within each follicle.

During the unshaven FUE procedure, certain donor follicular units that will be transplanted are carefully chosen and trimmed, leaving all other hairs at their normal length. The donor FUE areas will be covered with the patient’s natural hair, and in the recipient area, the non-shaved natural hairs will be useful for concealing the follicular units that were transplanted. As the newly transplanted hairs grow harmonizing with the existing hairs, the whole area will gain a significantly denser appearance.
