What is an Unshaven Hair Transplant?


April 27, 2023

Unshaven hair transplantation is a method of surgically transplanting hair follicles without shaving the scalp or cutting any hair in the transplant area.

The one thing that might prevent women, as well as some men, undergoing a hair transplant is having to cut their hair or shave their head. There are many reasons why women and men don’t want to shave their hair in order to have a hair transplant. For instance, some people would like to keep their hair transplant treatments private, other people might feel uncomfortable with a drastic change to their hairstyle and personal appearance.

Do You Have To Shave Your Head For Hair Transplant?

The good news is Este Medical in Turkey has hair loss procedures that don’t require head shaving or hair cutting. Regardless of your gender, you can have an unshaven hair transplant at Este Medical’s hair clinic in Istanbul. Our Este no shave hair transplant will ensure you can maintain your original hairstyle and avoid unwanted questions about your appearance.

Do I Need To Shave My Head Before Hair Transplant?

You will need to shave your head for a FUE hair transplant. But in the case of an unshaven hair transplant, or U-FUE hair transplant, it is not necessary to cut long hair or shave the whole scalp.

The unshaven FUE hair transplant (U-FUE) procedure is far more delicate and requires a high level of skill to target the healthiest hairs for transplanting and implanting. A no shave FUE hair transplant (i.e., the U-FUE method) will result in a completely natural and healthy-looking head of hair. Our expert hair transplant surgeons in Turkey have many years of experience doing this complex procedure.

Female Unshaven Hair Transplant Before and After

What Is Difference Between FUE and U-FUE (Unshaven) Hair Transplant? 

The difference between these two types of hair transplant is with a U-FUE hair transplant your scalp will not be fully shaved as part of the treatment. U-FUE is the same as FUE in that hairs are extracted from a donor area (e.g., the back or sides of the head) but the donor and treatment areas are not shaved.

Can I Have An Unshaven Hair Transplant In Turkey?

Yes you can! Este Medical’s hair loss clinic in Istanbul has a number of hair regrowth treatments including a no shave hair transplant Turkey procedure. The U-FUE unshaven hair transplant method is most suitable for men and women with mild to moderate hair loss. The best way to determine if a U-FUE hair transplant is good for you is to book a hair loss consultation

Can Women Have Unshaven Hair Transplant? 

Of course they can! Females are often more concerned with cutting long hair, or admitting they have had a hair loss treatment for women.

After an unshaven hair transplant, you can go about your business as usual, and nobody will suspect you have had a hair treatment. Our female hair loss clients love coming to Istanbul for treatments because they can take some time for sightseeing, eating delicious Turkish cuisine, and shopping in the Grand Bazaar, one of the largest and oldest covered markets in the world.
