What is the NeoGraft® Hair Transplantation System?
NeoGraft® FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) hair transplant is a minimally invasive procedure in which the graft from the back of the head (donor area) is harvested individually and placed in the thinning or balding areas on the top of the head.
Who can be treated?
The NeoGraft® method of hair restoration is a minimally invasive solution, which can treat male pattern baldness and female baldness in almost half the time of any other hair restoration procedure. After years of research and development, the NeoGraft® Automated FUE method offers one of the lease invasive techniques for hair transplantation with minimal complications. NeoGraft® is safe, comfortable, effective, and affordable-with minimal downtime and no linear scarring.
What is an “FUE” hair transplant and how is it performed?
- Step One: Donor Hair Removal
The NeoGraft procedure begins with hair being removed from the donor area in the back of your head where your hair is genetically programmed to resist testosterone.
- Step Two: Dissection of the Follicular Units
Each graft is extracted with the same consistency in diameter and length resulting in dramatically increased take rate.
- Step Three: Creation of Recipient Sites
The hair is transplanted to the recipient sites in the proper angle, direction and orientation according to the artistic hair transplant plan designed specifically for you.
- Step Four:
The follicular units are then carefully separated by size. Grafts are transplanted into the balding and thinning areas of your scalp. Each graft is meticulously harvested as it naturally occurs and implanted individually to ensure the best results.
What are the main benefits of FUE over the “strip” surgery?
Unlike the traditional STRIP method, which requires the physician to surgically cut and remove a strip of the scalp from the back of the head and implant it into balding areas, the high-tech NeoGraft® FUE device extracts follicular units and repositions them in the thinning areas. NeoGraft’s® hand piece delivers a short, quick and very small rotational spin to loosen the follicle just enough without damaging the hair follicle.
It is well accepted that FUE transplants heal faster and more comfortably than linear incision harvest techniques using a scalpel and requiring stitches. With FUE, once healing is complete, the patient has the option of wearing a very short haircut without the worry of a tell-tale linear scar. Without the need for stitches, downtime is shorter with fewer activity restrictions immediately after the procedure.
How soon will I see results?
The science behind grafting is simple. Hair follicles are taken from the hair in the back of the head that naturally continues to grow. The follicles that hold your transplanted hair are living tissues that grow cyclically. Once the normal hair follicle has been implanted into the balding area, the grafted hair will stay in place for about two to three weeks before shedding-this is normal and an important part of the new growth process. After shedding, the new growth will begin in 3-4 months and your hair will continue to grow normally. More importantly, your results will look healthy and natural.
How many treatments are required?
Most patients with moderate hair loss only need one session. Severe hair loss can require multiple sessions.
How long will the hair last?
Hair loss does not stop after transplantation-some people will need continued maintenance and further sessions will likely be required, particularly if your balding pattern continues with age. Progressive hair loss or the desire for more density may require more transplants. An estimate of balding pattern and the number of procedures needed will be discussed during the consultation with the physician.
How much does it cost?
The cost of the NeoGraft treatment depends on the number of grafts required. The number of grafts required are determined on an individual basis during consultation.
