NeoGraft is a proven, safe, precise, and natural-looking hair restoration solution that can help you achieve a thicker head of hair for a boost in self-esteem!
What is NeoGraft Hair Restoration?
NeoGraft is one of the most advanced hair transplantation techniques used today and is a semi-automated version of the FUE technique. FUE, or follicular unit extraction, relocates hair follicles from the back of the head to the top of the head, eyebrows, beard, mustache, or wherever you are deficient in hair growth. Once these hair follicles are transplanted, they naturally grow hair for years to come for a fuller, thicker head of hair. NeoGraft-assisted hair restoration is a great combination of the latest state-of-the-art technology combined with the artistic skill of the hair restoration surgeon.
Many clients choose NeoGraft because of these benefits:
- Precise & accurate.
- Minimally invasive with no linear scars on back of head.
- No stitches required.
- No cutting required.
- Natural results.
- Little-to-no discomfort.
- Quick recovery.
- Long-lasting results.
Who is a Good Candidate for NeoGraft Hair Restoration?
Individuals 25 years of age or older with hair loss can benefit from NeoGraft hair restoration. Ideal candidates will have thick hair fibers, have hair loss that is not caused by stress or medication, and are free of conditions that may affect surgery such as unmanaged diabetes, high blood pressure, or conditions that affect blood clotting. The best way to determine if this treatment is right for you is through a consultation with double board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Thomas Walker.
How is NeoGraft Hair Restoration Done?
First, Dr. Walker and his team will shave either your entire head or the section of the head from which hair follicles will be donated (typically the back of your head). Then, Dr. Walker and his team will utilize the NeoGraft system to skillfully and precisely extract individual hair follicles from the back of your head after injecting the donor and recipient site with a local anesthetic solution. Most patient also take a pain and relaxing medication to assure complete comfort during the procedure. The handpiece then moves the follicles into the storage area of the system, where they are lightly misted with a saline solution to prepare them for transplantation. Once prepared, the follicles are transplanted into the balding recipient site(s) of the head. We pay special attention to the direction that your hair is growing so that your new hair will blend in naturally. Patients will bring a snack with them, be able to use the bathroom if needed, and even eat a snack.
NeoGraft Hair Restoration Recovery
Following NeoGraft hair restoration, your treatment sites will be tender, and bandages will be placed on the treated areas for 48 hours. Antibiotics and anti-inflammatory drugs may be prescribed to lower the risk of infection and calm any irritation. The transplants should heal within about one week, and most people can return to their everyday routine within two weeks. Most people do not need to take time off of their jobs after surgery, depending on the nature of their job. Patients are allowed to wash their hair after a couple of days again. Dr. Walker will provide you with specific recovery instructions to ensure you properly care for your grafts after surgery. Most of transplanted hair will fully grow back over 3-6 months.
