Does the head need to be shaved for a hair transplant?

In most cases, an FUE hair transplant means a full shave of a patient's scalp. The donor area needs to be shaved to successfully extract donor grafts. Recipient areas also need to be trimmed to implant a high number of grafts and to achieve high density. Most patients opt in for a full shave.

Is it possible to avoid a full shave during a hair transplant?

In some cases, it is possible to avoid a full shave. We offer these "partial-shave" procedures primarily to patients, who are looking to implant grafts in the frontal areas of their scalp. For example, this kind of "partial-shave" procedure is suitable for those, who want to shape or lower their hairline. Even in these cases, the donor area at the back of the head will need to be shaved to extract grafts.

Is it possible to have a hair transplant entirely without shaving?

We are experimenting with a technique that allows us to extract grafts without shaving the donor area. During these "no-shave" procedures, grafts are extracted and implanted with the hair still attached. The speed of extraction and implantation with this method is very slow. In most cases, only up to 500-700 grafts can be transplanted in this manner during a single session. Therefore, the cost of a single transplanted graft during a "no-shave" transplant is approximately 2 Euro.
