Unshaven Hair Transplant (U-FUE)


Hair transplantation is a phenomenon that many people approach with hesitation. This is because it is thought that having a hair transplant will be considered strange by the social environment and there is a feeling of discomfort due to possible scars. For these and other reasons, many people are cautious about having a hair transplant and may give up the procedure. However, there is now a very advanced technique that can put an end to these problems. This technique is unshaven hair transplantation, known as u-fue. Thanks to this hair transplantation, people can now have a hair transplant without any discomfort and with great self-confidence. You can find answers to all the questions you wonder about this new hair transplant technique by reviewing our content called “Unshaven Hair Transplant (U-FUE)”.

What is Unshaven Hair Transplant? How is it done?

In the unshaven hair transplant procedure, which has gained great momentum recently, it is a hair transplant technique that has a great advantage over other hair transplantation methods. This method, which is mostly preferred by people who are uncomfortable with scars or who want to hide their hair transplantation from their surroundings, is a very reliable technique. In this procedure, which has many differences from normal hair transplantation procedures, the most striking difference is the way it is performed. Because in unshaven hair transplantation, the hair is not shaved as in other hair transplantation techniques. For this reason, it becomes a frequently preferred method. Thanks to this unshaven procedure, scars, etc. that occur after hair transplantation do not occur, and at the same time, the person returns to his daily life in a short time and is not noticed by his surroundings that he has had a hair transplant. Thus, the person can easily continue his/her social life from where he/she left off.

Types of Unshaved Hair Transplant

Unshaved hair transplantation types are shaped according to the needs of the person. Thanks to the hair transplantation techniques that vary depending on the person’s shedding condition and wishes, the person gets the closest techniques to nature and has perfect hair. These unshaven hair transplantation types are divided into 3. These are; completely unshaven hair transplantation, limited donor area hair transplantation and shaved donor area, unshaven hair recipient area hair transplantation types.

Shaved Donor Area, Unshaven Recipient Area Hair Transplant

In the shaved donor area, unshaven recipient area technique, the hair in the donor area is shaved so that the hair can be collected more easily. However, the hair in the recipient area is not shaved in order to prevent the appearance of scars in the area to be transplanted and to make it unclear that hair transplantation has been performed. For this reason, this technique is called shaved donor area, unshaven recipient area transplantation technique. This highly preferred method, contrary to popular belief, takes a very short time.

Limited Shaved Donor Area Hair Transplant

In this frequently preferred method, the hair in the donor area is shaved. In this procedure, a few hair strands are removed while shaving. In this way, hair follicle removal is limited and the scars in the donor area are camouflaged. And the person has no worries about this

Completely Unshaven Hair Transplant

In this hair transplantation process, which is both very popular and has much more scars, the hair is not shaved in any way and is not shaved at the time of hair collection. In this technique, which requires a lot of attention and skill, the transplantation of the hair is not understood in any way because the existing hair in the transplantation area camouflages and hides the newly transplanted hair and possible scars.

Unshaven Hair Transplant Surgery Process in Turkey



The unshaven hair transplant operation in Turkey, contrary to popular belief, consists of a very easy and effortless process. These processes consist of 5 effective steps. These steps are;

First Meeting

The preliminary interview, which is the first step in unshaved hair transplantation procedures, is a situation that largely determines the process. In this step, the person states his/her wishes and needs and expresses his/her expectations from the operation. Accordingly, the physician analyzes the hair follicles in detail and in depth. Thus, it is decided whether the roots are suitable for unshaven hair transplantation. Afterwards, the operation preparations are made accordingly.

Preliminary Preparations

After the preliminary meeting, detailed operation plans are made. Preliminary preparations are made in line with these plans. For this, a number of tests are performed on the patient. These tests are blood test, urine test and local anesthesia tests. After the tests, preparations for surgery are completed by considering the general condition of the patient.

First Steps

As a result of all the analyzes and tests, the first steps are taken for unshaven hair transplantation. Local anesthesia or sedation is usually applied to the patient. For the person under local anesthesia or sedation, the procedure is performed according to the appropriate unshaven hair transplantation technique. First of all, hair follicles are collected and transplanted to the recipient area. During the transplantation, the donor area and the recipient area are not completely shaved.

Step by Step to Recovery

The most important process after unshaven hair transplantation is the healing process. Much attention should be paid during this process. Thus, they experience a faster healing process. Unless the patient has an extra health problem, they are discharged on the same day. The recovery process of the discharged patient is 1 week on average. However, it may take 2-3 months for full recovery to be observed.

Final Results

The patient, whose recovery is observed between 2-3 months, now has a flawless hair appearance. Thus, he/she has natural and lush hair.

Advantages of Unshaven Hair Transplant Treatment

Unshaven hair transplantation treatment has many advantages. These advantages provide great benefits to people who have hair transplantation. In line with these advantages, the person feels better both mentally and physically. Here are the advantages of unshaven hair transplant operation;

  • They can quickly return to normal activities and social life.
  • Since there is no complete shaving, there is no change in the appearance of the person’s hair
  • Since the hair is not completely shaved, there is no possible scarring after transplantation.
  • Recovery time is faster than other hair transplantation techniques.

Disadvantages of Unshaven Hair Transplant Treatment

As with all procedures, unshaven hair transplantation treatment also has disadvantages. Although these disadvantages do not appear in everyone, they are very short-lived disadvantages. These disadvantages are as follows:

  • The process takes longer than normal hair transplantation techniques. The main reason for this is that the hair is transplanted without shaving. For this reason, hair follicles cannot be seen comfortably and the transplantation process is prolonged.
  • Hair transplantation cannot be performed in people with severe hair loss. Because a certain number of grafts is required for this.
  • Since unshaven hair transplantation technique requires more knowledge and experience than other procedures, you should only have it done in reliable hair transplant centers.
  • Unshaven hair transplantation operation may be a little more costly than other operations.

What are the Differences Between FUE and U-FUE (Unshaven) Hair Transplantation?



Although Fue and U-fue hair transplantation are very similar to each other, they have certain fundamental differences. We can list these main differences as follows;

Shaving Process

The main difference between the two techniques is whether or not the hair is shaved during hair transplantation. In the FUE procedure, the hair is often subjected to minimal shaving in the area to be harvested, while in the U-FUE method, the hair can be harvested and placed without shaving. This allows U-FUE to cause less visible aesthetic changes.

Processing Time

When we consider both techniques in terms of the duration of the procedure, we can observe that the U-FUE method has a slightly longer transplantation time. The reason for this is that more attention and time is allocated when collecting hair follicles since the hair is not shaved. However, this is not the case with the FUE hair transplantation technique since the hair is shaved.

More Labor

When we consider the Fue and U-Fue hair transplantation technique in terms of labor, unshaven hair transplantation may require more labor than the transplantation phase. Because hair transplant specialists do not scrape the hair during the procedure, they have to work much harder when removing and placing the roots. But this is not the case with the Fue procedure. Because hair transplant specialists scrape the recipient and donor area before starting the procedure.

Recovery Process

The recovery process is similar between FUE and U-FUE, but in U-Fue hair transplantation technique, due to minimal shaving or no shaving, a less rapid recovery can be observed after the procedure. In FUE, on the contrary, a slightly slower recovery can be observed after the procedure.

Aesthetic Appearance

When we consider both procedures in terms of aesthetic appearance, in the U-FUE procedure, since there is no shaving, the patient gets the appearance as if he/she has not had a hair transplant. In the FUE procedure, it can be understood that the patient has had a hair transplant because the shaving is done. However, as the hair grows over time, a natural appearance can still be achieved.

Am I a Good Candidate for Unshaved Hair Transplant?

In hair transplantation, some patients do not want it to be known that they have had hair transplantation or do not want their scars to be noticed after hair transplantation.

  • Are you afraid of possible scars after hair transplantation?
  • Do you want to experience a quick recovery period after the procedure?

Don’t worry! Everything You Want to Know About Unshaved Hair Transplant Operation

Possible scarring after hair transplantation makes me uneasy. For this reason, I am hesitant to have a hair transplant. What should I do for this?

In general, possible scars can be seen in hair transplantation techniques. The reason for this is shaving before the procedure. Since there is no hair in the area after the shaving process, the scars cannot be camouflaged, so they appear more clearly. However, since the hair is not shaved in the U-fue procedure, the scars are camouflaged. Thus, there is no situation that requires you to hesitate.

I want to have a fast recovery process after the hair transplant operation. Is there an alternative method for this?

Hair transplantation procedures are generally long processes. However, this is not the case with unshaven hair transplantation. Because the hair is not shaved, an easier and faster healing process can be observed. For this reason, you can speed up your healing process by having a U-FUE procedure.

I do not want my hair transplantation to be noticed in my social life, how can I hide it?

The situation that many people are afraid of after hair transplantation is that the hair transplantation procedure will be noticed by the people around them in their social life. This situation now has a solution. Thanks to unshaven hair transplantation, it will not be understood that the person has had a hair transplant in his/her social life in any way. Therefore, the patient does not need to worry.

Unshaved Hair Transplant Cost in Turkey

Hair transplant prices in Turkey are quite advantageous compared to other countries. The most important reason for this is that the Ministry of Health offers incentive support. In addition, there is a competition due to the fact that there are many clinics that perform unshaven hair transplantation and there are many of these clinics. This competition affects the prices.
