Hair Transplant Without Shaving – Is It Possible?

If the hair falls out, many of those affected resort to a hair treatment for radiantly full hair. However, many patients wish to have a hair transplant without shaving. Under what conditions can this wish be fulfilled?

Desired hair transplant without shaving

It is understandable that many patients ask the question of unshaven hair transplantation. After all, it is thus possible to keep the intervention invisible and to hide indications of the treatment.

The step of shaving off the hair completely is a very big one for many of those affected – especially for women. So, logically, you think about whether you can do without it. But in what cases can you do without a shave?

Requirements for not shaving

First and foremost, the possibility of performing a hair transplant without shaving depends on the size of the area to be transplanted. If the grafts are transplanted into large areas on the head, you cannot avoid shaving.

The donor area in particular is always shaved in order to be able to remove the hair follicles. This area is at the back of the patient’s head, where the hair is resistant to the hormone dihydrotestosterone, which is responsible for hair loss.

If only a small area is filled in during the transplant, a complete shave can be dispensed with. With long hair, the donor area is not conspicuous either, as the affected area can be covered with the hair.

If there are only a few grafts, no shaving is necessary

For a small hair transplant area, it is not necessary to completely shave the hair. For example, in the case of a receding hairline, a hair transplant can take place without shaving.

Even if only small areas are to be filled with grafts, this can be done with a partial shave. Instead of shaving the entire head, only the donor area and the area where the hair follicles will be transplanted are shaved.

The question here is how to perform the procedure without the need to shave the hair. As a rule, the modern FUE technique is used to guarantee an optimal result.

This is how a hair transplant without shaving works

With the modern FUE technique, the hair follicles are removed individually from the donor area at the back of the head with a hollow needle. Except for the donor area, hair transplantation can be done without shaving if the conditions for it have been met.

The so-called grafts are then stored in a special nutrient solution. The specialist in charge opens the hair canals with a fine blade, into which the hair roots are then transplanted.
