FUE Non-Shaven

Look good instantly without the unsightly wounds.

Non-shaven FUE is a novel procedure in the hair transplantation field. The cutting-edge technique involves transplanting strong, permanent hair follicles from the back of the head (Donor area) using a special tool and technique that creates an illusion that the donor area has not been shaved. This is done using a modified razer or scissors to cut small, specific areas so that the overall appearance of the donor area remains full and ‘untouched’. This FUE hair transplant technique is very difficult, requires great patience, and takes great technical ability to achieve and only a handful of clinics offer it in Thailand. The result, however, is a seamless, natural hairline that appears almost as if no surgery has been done. This surgery is perfect for those who do not wish to change their hairstyle or have little time available for recovery.

Non-Shaven FUE doesn’t leave the patient with any scars that would indicate a procedure has been performed. This allows the patient to continue his daily life immediately after the surgery. The methods used in non-shaven FUE are the same as those used in shaven FUE hair transplantation. However, greater care and technique are needed because the doctor needs to carefully remove the strong, healthy hair follicles without disturbing the other healthy hair surrounding the donor area.

Our team at Bangkok Hair Clinic is one of the few clinics in Thailand that has the skills and expertise to perform the FUE hair transplant safely, professionally, and at a reasonable cost.

Non-Shaven FUE procedure:

Advantages of Non-Shaven FUE:

  • It retains a natural-looking hairline.
  • The donor area remains unaffected by the procedure, with no evidence of a procedure having been done. This boosts the patient’s self-confidence by being able to enjoy the results of the procedure immediately. 
  • The short recovery period allows the patient to get back to his daily life without interruption. He will be able to wash his hair normally by the next day. 
  • Using a special razer allows us to be more precise, which means smaller wounds and a quicker recovery time.

Limitations of Non-Shaven FUE:

  • The procedure can only be done for a limited number of grafts (1500-2000 grafts) in one session.
  • It requires a longer time compared to Shaven FUE
  • The wounds are more difficult to care for.

Who is suitable for Non-Shaven FUE

  • The procedure is suitable for all genders and ages who suffer from hair loss, a receding hairline or baldness.
  • Patients who require a lower number of grafts for transplant
  • Patients who have sufficiently long hair to cover the donor area. 
  • Patients who want to avoid having a visible wound or having to shave their head.

How long does Non-Shaven FUE take

On average, Non-shaven FUE will take approximately 6-8 hours, depending on the patient’s needs. We aim to complete the procedure in a timely manner, as grafts must be re-implanted as soon as possible to improve survival rates. In some cases, a patient may need more than one session to cover their desired recipient area. However, this will be discussed in a detailed consultation between our doctors and patient. Our doctor will then come up with an ideal management plan after discussing it with the patient to guarantee the best outcome possible.

Is Non-Shaven FUE safe, and is it painful?

Non-Shaven FUE hair transplant  is a new method that was developed specifically to reduce the amount of trauma caused by cutting into the patient’s scalp. It allows the patient to go through with the procedure without having to shave off their hair as well. The patient will be able to wash their hair normally by the next day. Non-Shaven FUE is performed with a local anesthetic that will make it a painless procedure for the patient. However, there are still some risks involved and patients, which our surgeons will discuss with them before going forward with the procedure.


Question: Will there be scars after permanent hair transplantation?
Answer: Scarring after permanent hair transplantation is inevitable. However, if hair is transplanted using the FUE method, the scars will be very small, about 0.7-1.0 millimeters, or barely visible to the naked eye. Hair transplantation using other methods may result in larger scars, but with today’s technology, scar camouflage is much better. Therefore, after hair transplantation, hair follicle cell transplantation can be sure to return to daily life with confidence.

Question: Does hair transplantation hurt?
Answer: Whether hair transplantation is done using the FUE or FUT technique, there is only a little pain when the anesthetic is injected before the procedure begins. After that, the patient will hardly feel any pain at all.

Pre-procedural instruction before Non-Shaven FUE:

Avoid shellfish, fermented foods, and alcoholic beverages 1 week before the FUE hair transplantation procedure.

Stop oral medication, vitamins or supplements that affect blood coagulation (e.g. blood thinners, Vitamin C) 2 weeks to 1 month prior to the procedure. Please check with our medical professionals if you’re unsure.

Avoid curling, perming or colouring your hair 1 month prior to the procedure.

Avoid smoking cigarettes at least 2 weeks prior to the procedure.

Make sure to have plenty of rest the night before.

Keep yourself well hydrated before the procedure.

Avoid drinking tea, coffee or soft drinks.

Avoid wearing clothing that needs to be removed over the head to prevent irritating to the wound or the areas where the graft has been performed.

Post-procedural instruction after Non-Shaven FUE:

Refrain from wiping, rubbing, peeling, or scratching the area where hair has been transplanted for 2 weeks after the procedure.

Avoid bowing your head below waist level for a week, as it will cause bleeding or swelling around the area where the FUE hair transplantation has been performed. In extreme cases, this might cause the transplanted hair to fall out.

Refrain from consuming any alcoholic beverages or smoking for at least a week after the procedure.

You will need to wear the headband given to you for at least 4 days after the FUE hair transplantation to prevent swelling in your facial areas. You can only remove the headband while washing your hair, but it should not be removed for more than 20 - 30 minutes at a time. You should also wear the headband while sleeping at night.

You should sleep on your back with a high pillow or a neck pillow to prevent disturbing the area where the new hair has been planted. Please avoid sleeping on your side or lying on your stomach.

You will need to refrain from engaging in activities that would cause you to sweat for the first month. However, light exercises like walking or swinging your arms are perfectly fine as long as it doesn’t cause you to sweat. Please also avoid any form of watersports as well.

Please do not get a haircut or colour your hair for at least a month after the procedure.

You should keep a healthy diet that consists of all five food groups with a focus on foods that are high in protein. Do not engage in any dieting or weight loss programme during the first 6 months after the procedure, as it can have a detrimental effect on the transplanted hair.

Take your prescribed medication regularly and as directed by our doctors.
