How is unshaven hair transplant performed?

  • Experts do the design of the hairline with the laser technique
  • The patient’s hair is completely washed and sterilized. At the back of the head where the grafts will be taken, an area 2 to 4 cm wide will be shaved. In addition, the operating area for unshaven hair transplantation is provided with sterilization and sedation.
  • Hair follicles are collected and counted. For this process, the hair in the nape area is used. First, saline is injected into this area. Thus, the roots are collected correctly and comfortably. During the collection process, the person does not feel any pain or prickling. Grafts are collected by experts.
  • It is ensured that the roots to be transplanted to the planting area are at the same depth and orientation as the existing hair follicles. If the angle of the hair to be transplanted is the same as the existing hair, it will give a natural look. For this reason, the channels must be adjusted at a special angle. Channels should be opened as large as the transplanted roots. For this, adjusting the distance of the hair is a very important point.
  • Roots brought to the problem area, the hair follicles are correctly placed in the channels. This ensures the integration of the transplanted hair. The specialist will plant the hair follicles in the determined amount in the determined area according to the schedule.
  • After hair transplantation, a hair-strengthening treatment is applied, so that the healing process is accelerated.

Results of unshaven hair transplant

As a result of this technique, attention is paid to a natural and dense appearance of the hair, which requires a lot of attention and expertise. The number of grafts that can be used with the unshaven hair transplant technique is more limited.

The area to be transplanted should therefore not be too large, this can affect the result of hair transplantation without shaving. It is very important to follow the doctor’s advice and directions after the transplant process.

What are the differences between unshaven hair transplant and shaved hair transplant?

The unshaven or shaved technique is used depending on the density of the area to be transplanted. With the shaved technique, as many grafts as possible should be taken because the area to be transplanted is often larger. With the unshaven technique it is possible to take the required number of grafts because the area to be transplanted is often smaller. This technique is an intensive process that requires patience and effort.

Bij de FUE-methode worden de gezonde haarwortels een voor een verwijderd door een plastisch chirurg, als een rechte lijn op het achterhoofd tussen de twee oren. De verpleegsters sorteren de grafts vervolgens in groepjes van 1, 2 en/of 3. De volume (haardikte) per cm2 wordt vastgesteld en berekend, om te kunnen bepalen wat de beste stap is voor de patiënt en hoeveel grafts bijv. het beste resultaat geeft. De lengte en breedte van de lijn van het donorgebied wordt bepaald om de optimale aantal grafts te kunnen extracteren. De FUE-methode maakt ook gebruik van hoogwaardige technologische vooruitgang, desondanks wordt er wereldwijd toch liever gekozen voor de FUE-methode
