Hair can be a valuable part of someone’s identity, and shaving can be traumatizing. So if you’re thinking about getting a hair transplant and the main thing stopping you is the idea that you might have to shave your head, don’t worry. In the middle of hair transplantation systems, there are application techniques that do not require shaving the hair.
Follicular Unit Extraction
Follicular unit extraction (FUE) is a frequently preferred system for hair transplantation recently. Whether the surgeon shaves a large or a small part of the scalp during FUE hair transplantation depends on the size of the hair to be transplanted.
However, the entire head is never shaved. Therefore, it is preferred. Even if a reasonable part is to be shaved at the same time, this is done in an invisible form.
Some patients may be worried that the area where their hair is transplanted will be shaved, so the surgeon can better see where they are working.
But you can be comfortable. Many surgeons will not shave the recipient area for several reasons. Probably the most obvious reason is that shaving will make him look a little weird. Usually, the recipient area is on the top of the head, so shaving is not an option.
This allows the surgeon to have a proper idea of how the hairs left in the recipient area grow, thus ensuring that the donor hairs are transplanted in a form to match the growth pattern of the existing hairs.
Not shaving the area makes the smoothing process and waiting time a little smoother. Because a patient just waits for new hair to grow, not hair all over the scalp.
