Today, the number of people who have hair transplant especially in our country has increased significantly. However, in addition to this increase, many people who suffer from hair loss and want to have hair transplant, give up on the idea of hair transplant when they learn that their hair needs to be shaved before the operation.
People who do not want others to know that they had the hair transplant operation and fear their social life will suffer from it do not want their hair to be shaved. It is also generally preferred not to due to the aesthetic concerns of the females. This method of hair transplant is also very convenient, with the advantage of having long hair.
At this point, hair transplant without shaving method steps in, allowing the hair to be planted without shaving the patient’s hair.
How it’s done: Hair Transplant without Shaving
Before hair transplantation, patients are asked to grow their hair a little longer. Once the area where the hair follicles are to be taken is determined, healthy and strong follicles are being taken and prepared for planting. Then the roots are planted in the hair loss area. Because the female hair is usually longer, it is shaved in the nape area, namely the donor area to harvest hair follicles for performing the operation. Longer hair in the upper side hides the nape area after the harvest so no scar or shave marks appear to be visible.
