Unshaven hair transplant is an operation method that requires no shaving or buzz cut of the patient’s hair. While the techniques applied to the hair transplant area generally require a hair shave, unshaven hair transplantation has been performed in our clinic with both FUE and DHI techniques for many years.
Donor areas and transplant areas of the patients willing to undergo an unshaven hair transplant are subjected to pre-operational examination. Patients willing to undergo Unshaven Hair Transplant are asked to grow their hairs particularly in the back of the head. In this way, donor area can be hidden among the hairs that will not be processed.
There are two techniques that can be used for unshaven hair transplant: partially shaven hair transplant and completely unshaven hair transplant:
- Partially (Regionally) Shaven Hair Transplant: This technique can be used in operations with 1000 to 1500 hair grafts. The DHI method is used in this type of hair transplant. The hairs available between the two ears in the back of the head should be long. This will help concealment of the small shaven region in donor area.
- Completely Unshaven Hair Transplant: DHI method is also used here. This technique is particularly preferred by women willing to undergo a hair transplant and men who do not prefer shaven hair transplant methods. Hairs in the donor and transplantation areas are not shaven.
