It is difficult to perform FUT without shaving the patient’s scalp. In both FUT and FUE, not having shaved the scalp makes the procedure difficult for both the patient and us because hair blocks our sight, and if there is so much hair quickly harvesting the tissue would be impossible.
Usually actors in TV series or films, news presenters, or other popular personas do not want to have their hair shaved. They do not want their hair to be changed and want to resume their daily life. They ask us for the methods that do not require shaving. When the patient asks us not to, we proceed without shaving their scalp.
