Hair transplantation


Non-Shaven Hair Transplant

It is a technique where the head is ‘partially’ shaved, however concealed. Sometimes it is known as celebrity hair transplant or female hair transplant. The term ‘unshaved’ is used to indicate that a small area in the donor site will be shaved but will totally remain ‘undetectable’.

A ‘complete unshaved’ hair transplant, which is a procedure where shaving the donor area for the extraction of follicles is totally eliminated, keeping the hair intact. Hair Transplant without shaving.

It is important for the patient to be aware of the limitations associated with both of the ‘unshaved’ sessions and to seek consultation from a qualified surgeon to determine if he/she is a good candidate to undergo such a procedure. For example if the patient has experienced severe hair-loss, particularly in the vertex area and requires an excessive amount of grafts (around 3.000-4.000 grafts), his/her head will be completely shaved. The decision is generally made during the planning stage of a hair transplant procedure after the patient has been examined by the physician.
