Do I Have To Shave My Head to Have a Hair Transplant?Many individuals desiring hair restoration are hesitant to seek treatment because they do not want to shave their heads. New long hair follicular unit excision (FUE) technology allows for these patients to enjoy the benefits of hair restoration without needing to shave or cut their hair. Vinings Surgery Center, led by reliable board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Colgrove, provides a variety of hair restoration options to patients in Atlanta, Marietta, Georgia, and surrounding locations. 

What is Long Hair FUE?

The long hair follicular unit excision (FUE) procedure is the most advanced technique for hair transplant surgeries. This method of FUE reduces the visibility of the surgery by allowing the recipient area to be covered with long hair and makes it easier to identify the curl pattern when the grafts are placed. During treatment, your provider will create a few short cuts on the back of the head that will be concealed by longer hair. The hair on the back of the head will seem slightly thinner until the cut hair has time to regrow, but this method does not require any incisions or a fully shaved head.

Long Hair FUE Results

The method of implanting hair follicles is the same for FUE and FUT hair restoration procedures. Both methods are reliable and offer results, however, the skill of your surgeon ultimately determines how well your hair follicles are redispersed and how your final results appear. Dr. Robert Colgrove at the Vinings Surgery and Hair Restoration Center is a highly-trained hair restoration provider that is experienced and capable of producing reliable results.
