NeoGraft – You Could Have a Full Head of Hair in 6-12 Months!
WHAT IS FUE?
FUE or Follicular Unit Extraction is an advanced, minimally-invasive transplant method which allows for the harvesting of individual follicles from the donor area without a scalpel or stitches, and therefore leaves no linear scar.
FUE using NeoGraft has been considered a “game-changer” for the field of hair transplant surgery eliminating the risk, discomfort and downtime of a linear or strip-harvest. NeoGraft is a breakthrough surgical instrument that makes FUE harvesting far more efficient and accurate than previous devices.
WHAT IS NEOGRAFT?
NeoGraft is a new device which facilitates the harvesting of follicles during a “FUE”-type hair transplant, dramatically improving the accuracy and speed over previously used FUE manual extraction instruments. For years, we were only able to harvest between 500-700 grafts per day with FUE. Today, the NeoGraft sophisticated device has enabled us to harvest 2500-3000 grafts or more during a normal procedure day visit.
The NeoGraft technique makes FUE procedures more efficient and it works as an extension of the human hand to help harvest hair follicles efficiently from the scalp at a rate of speed that is significantly faster than manual FUE extraction and, with proper technique, significantly more accurate.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF FUE OVER LINEAR HARVESTING?
It is well-accepted that FUE transplants can heal faster and more comfortably than linear-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 worrying about a linear scar. Without the need for stitches, downtime is shorter and includes fewer activity restrictions after the procedure.
ARE YOU A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR FUE USING NEOGRAFT?
Patients who would like the option of wearing a very short haircut in the back or sides of their scalp, or those who want the least amount of activity restriction after their hair transplant procedure, may be good candidates for FUE with NeoGraft. FUE can also be used for ‘scar camouflage” procedures for patients who have had prior linear harvests, as well as for body hair transplants, eyebrows, beard, and mustache area.
HOW LONG DOES THE NEOGRAFT PROCEDURE TAKE?
Typically, the NeoGraft hair transplant procedure is performed in half the time of any other hair restoration procedure. Depending on how many grafts are harvested, the procedure may take a good part of the morning, and after a provided lunch, the implantations will take a couple of hours. Patients will recover for about a half-hour after the procedure, and then may go home.
WHAT IS THE RECOVERY PROCESS FOR NEOGRAFT?
How you feel following the surgery depends on the extent and complexity of the procedure. Any aching, excessive tightness, or throbbing can be controlled with pain medication prescribed by your physician. If bandages are used, they will usually be removed one day later. Within two days following surgery you may gently wash your hair.
