The standard approach to remove these units optimally is to shave or buzz a section of the hair very short. This allows for greater visibility and planning. The patient can visit the barber before their Toronto hair transplant to buzz the sides and back of their hair very short. That way their surgical site won’t stand out as dramatically different and all the hair can grow back in together at the same time.
No-shave- can it work for you?
There’s a new method catching on which works well for some people. Nick-named the “no-shave technique” this technique utilizes thin strip sections of donor scalp and just trim these sections while leaving surrounding hair long. The intention is that right after the procedure, men and women who wear longer hair will easily hide the small strips of trimmed donor hair.
The no-shave technique takes somewhat longer to perform and isn’t appropriate for everyone. Advanced, robotic hair transplant systems require an appropriate shaved zone to work efficiently, and those who desire high graft numbers for dramatic transformations, need a larger donor zone as well.
Whether you undergo a standard FUE shave or selectively trim discrete regions for a smaller transplant procedure, you need to select a skilled, experienced hair specialist. The biggest concern most patients have is whether their results will appear natural. Regardless of the method used, meticulous placement of donor hairs matches the direction, colour, texture and direction of surrounding strands.
When you select an experienced Toronto hair transplant surgeon, you’re well on your way to achieving the results you want.
