What is NeoGraft?
The revolutionary new technique that is changing hair restoration today!
The hair found at the back of the head has been programmed genetically to not fall out since it is not affected by the DHT hormone. The DHT hormone has been associated with causing hair loss.
Traditional hair restoration surgery involved cutting a graft from this area in the patient’s head which left a significant scar. The NeoGraft hair transplant device is designed to help the doctor overcoming the problems associated with manual FUE and those of the traditional “strip” method. Additionally, this is the latest, most advanced technique in hair transplantation available today. The NeoGraft technology does not leave any kind of scar since it uses the automated FUE method (follicular unit extraction).
How NeoGraft Works
Hair transplants performed with NeoGraft are considered very safe, non-invasive and relatively minor procedure.
NeoGraft device uses pneumatic pressure to extract the hair follicles and implant them in the scalp.
The NeoGraft procedure is performed with the need of only local anesthesia and additionally, there is no need for additional sedation. With NeoGraft no big horizontal scars occur as with the “strip” method which can leave visible scarring making it difficult to have short hair. This does not happen with NeoGraft, allowing the hair to be worn short.
The result from the NeoGraft procedure is a new distribution of strong healthy hair over the bald spots that is natural looking since it uses the patient’s own hair.
NeoGraft presents many advantages over other hair restoration methods. Mayor advantages include no scarring, as well as less bleeding and complications than with the traditional “strip” method.
There are fewer limitations on activities for the first few weeks as with the traditional “strip” hair transplant surgery. The patient will not feel that the scalp is too tight from the suturing and there is less numbness in the area treated.
The NeoGraft hair transplant device is FDA approved and has been developed to assist doctors with the FUE hair restoration procedure in order to make it simpler, faster and more effective.
NeoGraft VS Traditional Hair Transplant
There are many advantages that the NeoGraft device has over traditional hair transplants. Please read this page to know more.
Traditional hair transplant, also known as the ‘strip method’ is a technique where a strip of skin with healthy hair is surgically removed from the back of the patient’s head. This process leaves a long horizontal scar which makes recovery longer and more painful and it makes it difficult for most patients to wear short hair after their hair transplant procedure.
Additionally, patients often felt that the skin on the back of their head was ‘pulling’ from the area where the strip of hair was taken from, which felt uncomfortable and needed special care since this was a long scar and in some cases caused headaches and pain.
Because of the large scar, the recovery time is also longer and the patient has to avoid the sun, extraneous exercise as well as take special care of the scar in order to avoid any complication.
For us, every case is unique and each treatment should be costumed tailored to fit their needs. With our wide experience in hair transplant procedures and commitment to every patient we are able to offer our patients the best possible results.
