Does that mean that there is no need to be fully bald for a hair transplant procedure? 


The fear of going completely bald before a hair transplant can be an obstacle that stands between the patient and his dream of getting rid of the problem of hair loss forever. But with the procedure of Unshaven Hair Transplantation, also called DHI, we kiss the fear goodbye!

In this article we will explain everything you need to know about this technique, how it works and who are the right candidates for this procedure.


What is Unshaven Hair Transplantation?

Unshaven hair transplantation or DHI (Direct Hair Implantation) is a hair transplant procedure identical to the regular FUE hair transplant procedure, but in which the recipient area is not shaved. Patients who choose this procedure can leave their hair long at the implanted site. 

The unshaven hair transplant is a real game changer for those who want to undergo the procedure and at the same time keep it a secret from people or just go back to their everyday life without anyone asking, “Hey, why are you completely bald?”.

The Unshaven Hair Transplant requires a short healing time and the person can return to their normal life within 3 days if they follow the doctor’s instructions.


What are the Differences in Unshaven Hair Transplantation and Shaved Hair Transplantation?

The differences between the unshaven hair transplantation procedure and the shaven hair transplantation procedure are quite significant. Firstly, for unshaven hair transplantation there is only one method, namely DHI (i.e. Direct Hair Implantation). However, for shaved hair transplantation there are three different methods, FUT, FUE and Sapphire FUE hair transplantation

In unshaven hair transplantation, the donor area is shaved for hair follicle harvesting, but the recipient area remains unchanged and implantation is done amidst the existing hair. In shaved hair transplantation, both the donor and recipient areas must be shaved. Finally, in the shaved hair transplant methods, the recipient area must be prepared by opening channels. 


Who Is Unshaved Hair Transplant Suitable For?

During the initial consultation, the doctor will tell you whether or not you are a candidate for the Unshaved Hair Transplant. In general, it’s preferred that the patient is 25 years or older, because at this age the hair loss pattern stabilizes and can be defined by some tests. If a donor area is available, you are ready for unshaven hair transplantation or direct hair implantation.


How is Unshaved Hair Transplant Performed? 

Knowing how your procedure will go and how to prepare for it will help ensure a successful procedure and a speedy recovery. Therefore, in each article you will find all the necessary information about the procedure.


  - Preparation 

Are you ready for your unshaven hair transplant? Your answer will be “Yes, I am”  if you follow the following instructions before the procedure:

  • You must stop smoking cigarettes 14 days before the procedure to have a shortened healing period.
  • If you consume alcoholic beverages, you must avoid them completely for 14 days prior to the procedure, as they can have a blood-thinning effect and increase the risk of excessive bleeding during the procedure.
  • Stay away from direct sunlight to avoid possible scalp sunburn. Your scalp must be healthy for the procedure and must not have any burns.
  • If you are taking blood thinning medications, you must inform your physician and discontinue them to avoid bleeding complications during the procedure.


  - Operation

The procedure consists of two main steps, as the recipient area does not need to be shaved or prepared. The procedure of unshaven hair transplantation is performed with an advanced medical device called Choi Implanter Pen.


Stap one: 

The donor area will be completely shaved and anesthetized with local anesthesia. Once it’s ready, the extraction of hair grafts will start. The hair follicles are dynamically and individually removed with a special medical instrument and stored in a medical solution to prepare them for implantation.


Step two:

The recipient area does not need any kind of shaving or  incisions opening. Local anesthesia is simply injected and then the grafts are implanted into the existing hair using the Choi Implanter Pen.


  - Post-Operation 

The recovery period of an Unshaved Hair Transplantation is usually short and quick, however there are some instructions to follow that will make the entire healing process much easier: 

  • Stay away from smoking and drinking alcohol for 14 after the procedure 
  • Do not sleep flat to avoid any kind of pressure on the newly implanted grafts
  • Keep your scalp dry for the first two days
  • After 48 hours, wash your scalp daily for 10 days with the product prescribed by your doctor.
  • Avoid intense workouts 
  • Protect your scalp from direct sunlight 
  • Don’t wear tight hats
