Non-Shaven Hair Transplant, Is It Possible?

For many patients, shaving all their hair represents a real problem, but is it possible to have a hair transplant without shaving? In conventional hair transplant methods, the hair is shaved or cut. This can be an issue for some people. However, now there is a method called non-shaven hair transplant, and patients can quickly resume their daily lives afterwards. The procedure is performed using the Direct Hair Transplant (DHI) technique, which allows both women and men who do not want to give up their existing hairstyle to maintain their own style and long hair.

What are the disadvantages of a non-shaven hair transplant?

The disadvantages of a non-shaven hair transplant include:


Limited number of grafts

Compared to a traditional hair transplant, the non-shaven method is more complex and time-consuming. This can limit the number of grafts that can be transplanted in a single session. Individuals requiring a large number of grafts may not be suitable candidates for a non-shaven hair transplant.


Higher cost

Due to the increased complexity and longer duration of the procedure, a non-shaven hair transplant can be more expensive than a transplant with shaved hair. The extended duration of the implantation process requires additional time and resources, contributing to the higher cost.


Longer procedure time

Performing a hair transplant without shaving the recipient area takes longer than a conventional transplant. The meticulous process of implanting the hair follicles one by one without shaving the existing hair can prolong the duration of the procedure.


Potentially reduced density

Since the recipient area is not shaved, the surgeon must work around the existing hair during transplantation. This can make it more challenging to achieve optimal density in the transplanted area, as the existing hair may obstruct the precise placement of grafts.

Is a hair transplant without shaving possible?

Non-shaven hair transplant is a method of hair transplantation without shaving the front, sides, and top of the head. However, the donor area, which is the back of the head, still needs to be shaved to proceed with follicle extraction using the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) hair transplant method, and the implantation procedure is performed using the DHI method.

Is a non-shaven hair transplant painful?

You will not feel any pain during the hair transplant procedure. This is because the non-shaven hair transplant procedure is performed under local anesthesia. By administering the local anesthesia slowly, the discomfort associated with the injection is limited, and there will be no pain during the procedure.

Post non-shaven hair transplant 

Undergoing a non-shaven hair transplant does not differ much from the classic procedure. The only difference is that the hair is not completely shaved. At the end of the operation, the doctor at HairBack Clinic will provide you with advice and guidelines that must be strictly followed for a healthy and natural result. It is important to keep in mind that there will be shedding of the transplanted hair during the first month, which will start to regrow naturally after 3 months. The final result will be visible after approximately one year.

Aftercare following a non-shaven hair transplant

A hair transplant is a very important aesthetic procedure, so paying particular attention to post-operative care is necessary. In addition, the transplanted areas must be kept clean and protected throughout the specified period to avoid possible infections.

Proper care after a hair transplant is crucial to achieve the desired results. In this regard, our medical teams at HairBack Clinic will provide you with all the advice and steps to follow after a hair transplant.

When you return home, you will also receive a care kit containing lotion and shampoo to wash your hair. And, of course, thanks to personalised online follow-up, you can contact your HairBack Clinic consultant at any time if you have any questions or doubts about the post-operative phase of your surgery.
