Non-Shaven FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) Hair Transplant for Natural-Looking Results

If you’re interested in hair transplantation but hesitant about shaving your hair, particularly at the back of your head, due to work-related image concerns or simply because you’ve grown your hair long, there’s a solution. Today, we’re introducing the Non-Shaven FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) technique, a method designed to address these issues. This technique allows for hair transplantation without the need to shave the entire donor area, thus preserving your existing hair length and appearance. Here are the details of this approach:

Non-shaven FUE hair transplantation is a type of FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) hair transplantation, which is one of the two types of hair transplantation methods recognized by the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS). The procedure is similar to conventional FUE, in which hair follicles are extracted from the donor area, which is located on the back or sides of the scalp. This area is known for having strong, permanent hair that is not affected by the hormone DHT. However, in non-shaven FUE, the doctor does not shave the back of the scalp. Instead, the hair follicles are extracted with the hair still attached. The hair is then trimmed to the desired length before being transplanted back to the area of concern. This makes non-shaven FUE a more time-consuming and expensive procedure than conventional FUE.

Similar to FUE, after meeting with the doctor to assess the number of grafts required, the steps in the non-shaven FUE transplantation procedure are as follows:

Graft extraction

The doctor will use a hybrid drill from the WAW FUE SYSTEM, which is a drill with a tip smaller than 1 mm designed by Dr.Jean Devroye, to extract hair follicles from the donor area. However, it differs slightly from the normal method because the back of the head will not be shaved. Instead, the hair follicles will be extracted with the long hair attached. This means that the patient will have no shaved scar on the back of the head, unlike the FUE case with shaved hair.

Graft sorting

Once the required grafts have been obtained, the staff will cut the length of the hair before sorting the grafts according to the appropriate size and number of hairs in one graft. The grafts will then be stored in Hypothermosal, the world’s best graft storage solution, in preparation for planting.

Hair transplantation

In this step, the transplanted hair will be short, like a normal FUE transplant. It will not come as long hair to make it easier to care for after planting. The doctor will use a tool called an Implanter pen to plant for all cases without additional cost for the best results for all of our patients.

Advantages and limitations of non-shaven FUE hair transplantation

Advantages of non-shaven FUE hair transplantation

No need to shave the back of the head

This allows patients to cover the scar from hair transplantation after the procedure.

Looks more natural.

This is because the transplanted hair will be the same length as the patient’s original hair, making it look seamless.

Shorter recovery time.

This is because the patient does not need to shave the back of the head, which allows the wound to heal faster and return to normal life faster.

Limitations of non-shaven FUE hair transplantation

Takes longer to transplant.

This is because the doctor must extract each hair follicle one by one with a small drill, which takes longer than conventional transplantation.

Higher cost

This is because special tools and techniques are required for non-shaven hair transplantation.

As mentioned above, the procedure for non-shaven FUE hair transplantation is similar to that of FUE hair transplantation. However, the main difference is that non-shaven FUE does not require the patient to shave the back of the head. This means that the doctor must be more skilled at extracting hair follicles evenly in a limited area. Additionally, it takes longer to perform than FUE hair transplantation, which also contributes to the higher cost.

The cost of non-shaven FUE hair transplantation at Hairsmith Clinic is 140 baht per graft. This includes all necessary costs, such as:

  • 12 months of hair growth medication

The only difference is that no hair is shaved in the donor area at the back of the head. This makes the transplantation process take longer because the hair follicles must be extracted one by one.
