Both men and women are eligible for a hair transplant. Unshaven hair transplants, which most people tend to have to keep the surgery private; or not shave their existing hair, are becoming increasingly favorable.

Operation of Unshaven Hair Transplant
Unshaven hair transplant is proven to be an entirely successful surgery for those in need of hair treatment. Although the unshaven FUE 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.
3 Types of Unshaven Hair Transplantation
If a patient is experiencing considerable hair loss, s/he is not a good candidate for a fully unshaven procedure. As a result, several treatment options are done based on the patient’s hair loss.
1- Shaven Donor Site, Unshaven Recipient Site
If your recipient area is completely bald, your donor area will be shaved.
2- Limited Shaven Donor Site
Only one or two short strands of hair are shaved in the donor area. Limited Shaven Donors help patients to hide their donor areas. Yet, the number of hair follicles (grafts) that can be extracted is limited.
3- Fully Unshaven
Although a fully unshaven procedure that allows patients to keep their existing hair helps patients to recover in a short time, it limits the graft numbers.
Pros of Unshaven Hair Transplant
- You do not need to shave your hair, which is the best part of this technique for most patients. An unshaven hair transplant is a lifesaving if you do not feel comfortable with short hair and the operation scars after the procedure!
- Unshaven FUE hair transplant provides you with natural-looking hair just like a regular FUE transplant.
- The patient will not get any prominent scars after an unshaven hair transplant.
- The healing phase of the patient is going to be completed in a short time after the unshaven hair transplant. So, you do not need to take a long rest staying home for days. Unshaven hair transplants do not interrupt your social life.
