I would like to know if you have to necessarily shave a part of the donor area to perform FUE ? Can it be done if you keep your hair at normal length ?
If you have to shave it how long do you have to keep the rest of the hair in the donor area to camouflage the part that’s shaved ? Is it noticeable ?
It depends on the number of grafts you need through follicular unit extraction (FUE). A large number of grafts will require an area to be shaved. When we see you and give you a quote, we can tell you the answer to that question.
Take a look at the patient example on our FUE page. We kept his hair long and clipped small areas that were easy to cover with his existing hair. We can often get 500 or so grafts from such an area.
