Hair Transplant and Head Shave
The donor site where we take the grafts that are used will have to be shaved. However, where the grafts are implanted does not have to be shaved. If your hair is long enough in the back, there is an option to try to camouflage your donor site. We have had many patients that are not able to tell their hair was even shaved. It can be very discrete with the right length of hair.
It is best to leave your hair longer before the procedure, this way your performing hair restoration surgeon can see your hair and coverage.
FUE surgery and head shave
In order to perform FUE, the donor area must be shaved. Shaving of the recipient site can also be quite helpful. This allows for more precise graft placement and prevents transection of preexisting hair follicles, especially if more density is desired at the recipient site.
Shave head for FUE
You should ask your hair transplant doctor what they prefer. I usually tell my patients to shave or not shave. Do what is comfortable. Although we need the hair short around the sides and back, we can do that the morning of the procedure. Most doctors do not require you to shave the recipient area of transplant.
Shave Head Before Hair Transplant
Loss of hair is a natural process when it is between the limits that the body can restore them. When the capacity of the body to restore the hair loss is beaten by the excessive hair loss then we can name this situation something that should be treated. Women started to experience balding even more in the last 2 decades. It is getting more and more common also in women population. However it is also good to know that this problem is also treatable when it is present in women.
To obtain alive hair follicles implanted in higher rates, the latest technique being used is not the only manner, it is also affected by compliance of implantation area that we found a better way to improve as a result of our researches, The Organic Hair Transplantation. By this new and unique Organic Hair Transplantation Technique, before the extraction and implantation processes; we regenerate the implantation area with injection of stem cell enriched fat tissue. Regeneration of cells in target area before FUE transplantation with the support of stromal stem cells results in higher rate of alive thicker hair follicles.
Non-shaven hair transplant
Thanks to some recently developed techniques, and depending on the patient’s condition and suitability for certain techniques, the FUE procedure may be performed without shaving the hair at all.
At our clinic, we offer three different FUE methods; FUE with shaven hair in which the hair is shaven in both the donor area and recipient areas, non-shaven FUE where the hair is shaven only in the extracted area and last, but not least the long hair FUE method without shaving the hair at all.
In the long hair FUE procedure, the extraction portion of the surgery is executed with a specially designed surgical punch while the insertion or placement of the grafts is performed with the very specially designed KEEP (Koray Erdogan Embedding Placer) which I recently patented. With this method, the maximum number of units that can be transplanted in one surgery is 3000 grafts spread over 2 days of surgery.
