Hair Transplants Without Shaving Your Hair

Bangkok Hair Clinic performs FUE hair transplants. We’ll explain why these transplants are quickly becoming popular.

Did you know there is more than one type of hair transplant? FUE hair transplants are a departure from the traditional hair transplants you’ve heard about. Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) is how hair transplants were originally performed. It’s a more invasive surgery where a portion of the patient’s scalp is temporarily removed, and hair follicles are extracted from it and re-inserted into the balding areas of the patient’s head.

Today, we also have non-shaven Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) hair transplants. This procedure provides a hair transplant without shaving the head, which is much less invasive and quicker to heal. Many people who make their living in the public eye are having the procedure performed. These people include actors, presenters, models, corporate spokespersons and business leaders. However, these unshaven hair transplants are available to anyone and are quickly becoming the favorite choice.

FUE hair transplants maintain a natural-looking hairline.

What are FUE Hair Transplants?

Non-shaven FUE hair transplants are a new and different method of harvesting and transplanting hair follicles from the head. The technique involves transplanting strong hair follicles from the lower back of the head to where they are needed by using a special tool that creates the illusion that the hair in the donor areas at the back of the head has been left unshaven. The donor areas can be exposed by lifting rows of hair. These areas are then left covered until they grow back.

Advantages of an Unshaven Hair Transplant

The main advantage is one of aesthetics. The donor area is not detectable except by close examination. This boosts the self-confidence of the patient undergoing hair transplantation while continuing their daily life. The procedure also maintains a natural-looking hairline while adding fullness to the scalp. FUE transplants also take less time to heal completely. The patient can wash their hair normally the day after receiving the transplant.

The procedure is approved for all genders and ages of people suffering from hair loss or a receding hairline. Patients who only need a small number of grafts to fill in a receding hairline or a bald spot generally choose an FUE hair transplant to avoid having a visible wound and having to shave their head.

Patients with long hair also favour these transplants, as the long hair helps cover the donor areas, and they can be having treatment while going about their everyday activities.

How Long Do FUE Hair Transplants Take?

The average FUE transplant session takes 6-8 hours. The grafts must be transplanted as quickly as possible to ensure they survive. However, many patients require multiple sessions to achieve their desired results. The concept of FUE means that patients look presentable while undergoing treatment. Two weeks after the last procedure, the patient will look completely normal.

Are FUE Transplants Painful?

FUE hair transplants were specifically developed as a solution to the invasiveness and trauma of FUT transplants. Cutting into the patient’s scalp is greatly reduced with FUE transplants.

The procedures are carried out while the patient is under local anaesthesia, which numbs the head and makes the process painless. After the procedure, the patient may experience some soreness and swelling. Your doctor will provide a headband for you to wear for at least four days after the procedure to help prevent swelling in your facial area. The headband can be removed to wash your hair but should be worn the rest of the day and while you sleep.

Your doctor will also list other precautions you should follow to ensure the best results from your FUE hair transplant. These precautions include avoiding drinking and smoking for two weeks after the procedure and refraining from rubbing, wiping, and scratching the transplant area.
