Shave hair after a hair transplant?

You often do not realize it, but many are becoming increasingly bald after a hair transplant. This is usually due to poor information.

But what can you do after a hair transplant if the donor area is used up?

What is still possible if your hair transplant looks unnatural?

Unfortunately, there are few repair options.

Micro hair pigmentation is one of the best choices.

Although a good hair transplant, in suitable candidates, looks good, further hair loss over the years can cause a problem.

Often the donor area is used up to perform further hair transplants. In some cases, it is not financially feasible.

Usually only two solutions remain:

  1. shaving hair
  2. Hairpiece/wig

If you shave the hair short after a hair transplant, you will notice that the density in the implantation area is much lower and therefore does not look natural. The donor area, at the back of the head, will also be covered with mini-FUE scars, or long FUT (also called strip) scars.

Fortunately, it is possible with the help of micro hair pigmentation to transform an unnatural shaved look into a beautiful and full-looking shaved look.

Both FUE donor scars and the implant area can be corrected almost perfectly.
