Our shaven procedure works well for patients who don't mind a shaved head. A shaven procedure generally takes less time and is often the best option for patients who need a lot of grafts and just want to get the transplant surgery phase in their life over with, ASAP. As I mentioned in a previous post, If you go with a shaven procedure, you may want to schedule your surgery during a 14 day vacation period. This is for aesthetic reasons, not because of pain or discomfort. For many men, the FUE surgery recovery time is nothing. During surgery the most difficult part is sitting still in the chair. For example I have had several surgeries during the day over the years while working at Dr. Cole's office. I have never required any pain medication and right after surgery I am back at my desk working. I wear a bandana because they are very comfortable and carry on like normal being careful not to bump my head.
