Long Hair Transplant
With modern and updated technology and tools, patients with longer hair can now have amazing, natural-looking results with the Long Hair Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) technique - or Unshaven FUE.
This is the same procedure as the traditional FUE - minimally invasive transplant - however, without the need to shave the hair from the donor region.
Due to its nature, this operation can take longer and be more tiring, which is why you will need a skilled and experienced surgeon to carry out the procedure from start to finish.
Advantages of long hair transplants
One main advantage of an unshaven hair transplant is that it minimises greatly the visible signs of a surgery. That means that it is made possible to quickly return back to everyday activities without the fear of showing scabs or redness. However, long hair transplants will usually be more expensive than traditionally shaven hair transplants.
Another advantage is that with a long hair transplant, there are fewer grafts implanted in the target areas - in comparison with the shaven hair transplant - so the recovery time for patients could be shorter.
Although, because of this it may take a couple of more sessions to achieve the level of density required - depending on the patient's needs.
One more great advantage that has been recorded by patients is having less postoperative pain with the FUE treatment. That means that not only can the patients hide any signs of surgery but also feel better sooner than with some other operations.

What happens to my hair after the transplant?
After having a long hair transplantation the new hair will
still shed after a few hair cycles, the same way it would after
You will get a preview of the results a few weeks before the
hair sheds, and afterwards the healthy transplanted root will
start growing new hair again normally. This is a gradual process
and the best results will be seen about 9-12 months after the operation.
