Hair Transplantation using Long and Unshaven hair
Introduction of Unshaven Hair Transplant
Unshaven Hair Transplant is also known as Undetectable FUE. In this technique, hair transplantation is done without shaving the recipient or donor area. It is unlike traditional FUE, where hair needs to be shaved to facilitate the process of extraction and placement of the graft.

What are the Reasons to Choose Eugenix for Unshaven Hair Transplant?
This technique involves the extraction of individual follicular units (FU) or follicles from the donor area and implantation in the recipient area. It established the use of a small, circular punch which aided in the incision of the skin and separation of surrounding tissue from the graft. This technique gained popularity in the next few years after facing initial criticism like any other.
In the year 2018, the term ‘extraction’ was replaced by ‘excision’ in an attempt to emphasize the minimally yet invasive nature of the procedure and to avoid misleading patients.
Steps of FUE:
- Extraction of the required follicular units or follicles from the donor area and placement in a holding solution.
- Implantation of the grafts in the recipient area with the help of implanters or forceps.
