The NeoGraft hair restoration procedure has recently been called revolutionary by those in the hair transplant industry. NeoGraft is a hair transplant system which facilitates the harvesting of follicles during a Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) hair transplant. This method provides increased accuracy and speed over previously used manual extraction instruments.
Below we have provided answers to some common questions about NeoGraft to help those seeking additional information about the procedure.
- Is FUE/NeoGraft for both men and women? Yes. NeoGraft is a minimally-invasive procedure and is a viable option for both men and women looking for natural looking hair restoration using their own hair.
- How do I know if I’m a good candidate for the NeoGraft procedure? NeoGraft is a good option for patients looking for the option of wearing very short haircuts in the back or at the sides of their scalp. Also, those looking to have the least amount of activity limitations following the procedure will be good candidates for NeoGraft. Patients who have had prior linear harvests can use NeoGraft for ‘scar camouflage’ procedures.
- How is the Neograft hair transplant performed? NeoGraft is performed using a controlled pneumatic pressure to slide out the grafts smoothly. This means that there is no pulling or twisting that can risk damaging the graft. These grafts can be re-implanted sooner, meaning that they are more robust and results in a more natural looking hairline.
- How long does it take to see results? NeoGraft uses hair follicles that are taken from the hair in the back of the head that naturally continue to grow. The follicles that hold the transplanted hair are living tissues that grow cyclically. After the normal hair follicle has been implanted into the balding area, the grafted hair will stay in place for approximately two to three weeks before it is shed. This is completely normal and is an important part of the new hair growth process. Once the hair is shed, the new hair growth will begin in 3-4 months and your hair will continue to grow normally.
