What Is Unshaven Hair Transplantation? To Whom Can It Be Done?
The hair transplantation process, which has been applied for many years, develops over time and new methods are applied. In classical hair transplantation, all the hair is usually shaved. Because of the shaving process, especially women and men with long hair do not want to have a hair transplant. In the DHI hair transplantation method, which is one of the modern hair transplantation methods, the hair does not need to be shaved. Since there is no shaving phase, hair transplantation is easily applied to women.
