Is a NeoGraft Hair Transplant for me?
Both men and women can experience hair loss which is often a source of stress and frustration. Luckily, there are now advanced hair transplant methods like NeoGraft that can restore a natural looking hairline without incisions, stitches, or scars.
What is NeoGraft?
The NeoGraft hair transplant system is an automated follicular unit extraction (FUE). FUE that involves the extraction of hair from the donor area (usually at the back of the head) using a tiny punch that makes circular incisions to remove the hair follicles.
Extraction of the hair with the FUE technique is normally a lengthy, time-consuming process because it is done manually. NeoGraft is unique because it’s the first automated FUE system, suitable for both men and women.
How Does itWork?
The NeoGraft device uses pneumatic pressure to extract the hair follicles individually, leaving the scalp intact. The hair follicles are then carefully implanted into the balding areas using the ‘no touch’ method. This method of extraction eliminates the need to handle the follicles, lowering the rate of damage ensuring the follicles remain healthy.
The pneumatic controls that the NeoGraft system uses to extract and implant the hair follicles enhances the precision and results of the treatment. The grafts are implanted in a specific manner, so as to get results that look more natural.
Is There any Downtime With a NeoGraft Hair Transplant?
NeoGraft is a no incision technique which means there is no scarring. Most patients are able to be out and about within a day or two.
The back and sides of the head are normally shaved for the NeoGraft procedure. Patients should be prepared to go out for a while with their head shaved. There may also be some swelling and scabs in the area where the donor hair was transplanted. The swelling usually resolves within 2 to 4 days. Doctors often recommend that patients have the procedure done on a Friday, so they have the weekend to recover.
Implanted with NeoGraft hair follicles usually start to take root after two days. It typically takes about 2 weeks for them to become stable. Strenuous activity should be avoided during this time.
Who is a Good Candidate?
Ideal candidates for NeoGraft hair transplant are men or women with thinning or balding areas, who are interested in a minimally invasive hair transplant technique. They should also have enough donor hair at the back of the head, along with reasonable expectations about surgery.
For best results, it is important to choose a skilled surgeon with the proper training and expertise.
