Unshaven Hair Transplant is also known as Undetectable FUE. In this technique, hair transplantation is done without shaving the recipient or donor area. It is unlike the traditional FUE, where hair needs to be shaved to facilitate the process of extraction and placement of graft.
The major advantage of unshaven hair transplant is that it reduces the downtime and decreases the degree of detection. In cases where the patients have long hair, the redness and scabs can be concealed by their existing hair.
This technique was previously termed Follicular Unit Extraction and was published in 2002 by Dr Bernstein and Dr Rassman. What are the Reasons to Choose Eugenix for Unshaven Hair Transplant?
This technique involves extraction of individual follicular units (FU) or follicles from the donor area and implantation in the recipient area. It established the use of small, circular punch which aided in incision of the skin and separation of surrounding tissue from the graft. This technique gained popularity in next few years after facing initial criticism like any other.
In the year 2018, the term ‘extraction’ was replaced by ‘excision’ in an attempt to emphasise the minimally yet invasive nature of the procedure and avoid misleading patients.
Steps of FUE:
Long hair transplant surgery is done to achieve good volume of hair in a shorter period of time. In this surgery best results can only be achieved if the surgery is done by experienced and dedicated surgeons. Otherwise the risk of failure is very high and most of the transplanted hair tends to fall within the first 3 months.
