Unshaven (UFUE) Hair Transplant

Unshaven FUE Hair Transplantation, also known as U-FUE (Undetectable/Unshaven FUE), is the next step forward in the treatment of hair loss. The ‘undetectable’ treatment gives patients who are against shaving their head the opportunity to restore their hairline in a minimally-invasive, effective way. Dr. Thomy Kouremada-Zioga is one the few Doctors in the world able to perform this intricate long hair transplant procedure due to her specialist knowledge and vast experience.

As the name suggests, the main difference between a normal FUE Hair Transplant Procedure (FUE) and an Unshaven FUE Procedure (U-FUE) is that you don’t have to shave your head, or any part of your hair, before the procedure. The hair transplant patient effectively keeps his hair long while having the hair transplant procedure, no shaving takes place. UFUE is hair transplant without shaving recipient area. As donor hair is extracted at full length, many patients can return to work the next day without anyone noticing they’ve undergone the treatment – unless they hold their hair back.

Like traditional FUE transplantation, hairs are extracted one by one from a donor area (traditionally the back or sides of the head). However, the treatment is far more delicate and requires huge skill on the part of your surgeon to spot the most healthy hairs and ensure they are implanted correctly. Dr Kouremada-Zioga has spent 8 years perfecting this method, and understands what makes a suitable candidate for the best results.

Once the hair is extracted, the strands of hair are cut off, leaving only the root to be implanted. As with the normal FUE procedure there will be some slight redness post procedure, however once the redness has gone down the existing longer hair can successfully hide any evidence of a transplant having taken place.

The new hairline will then naturally grow back gradually over the following 12 months. As the hair growth is gradual, people don’t tend to notice the change.

Here are the results of one of our (U-FUE) unshaven FUE hair transplant procedures (the long-hair hair transplant), just 8 months after performed by Dr Kouremada-Zioga:
