FUE Part Shaves - Strip Shaves

Prior to every procedure the hair on the donor site has to be shaved accurately in order to place the hollow needle for the extraction precisely. Depending on how many grafts are needed either full or only part shaving will be necessary.

As shown on the picture below there is possibility to shave only parts of the donor site which can be covered by overlying hair later. Unfortunately this method is limiting the amount of grafts to be harvested from the donor site. Depending on the patients´ individual needs a full shaving of the hair corresponds to a higher density being required. If there is a little amount of grafts to be transplanted on a limited area only part shaving can be seen as good alternative for patients who want to return to the normal activities of life sooner or need to hide the restoration process due to other reasons.
