Hair loss can dramatically impact your self-esteem and affects men and women alike. Hair restoration has been available for years, but procedures of the past were uncomfortable and the results looked unnatural. NeoGraft is an advanced hair restoration procedure which offers stunning and permanent hair restoration for many patients. If you’re curious whether NeoGraft is the solution to help you regrow hair, here are some of the basics about the procedure.
NeoGraft is a hair restoration procedure that works using the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) method. Through NeoGraft, patients can reverse the appearance of thinning or baldness. FUE hair restoration is an alternative to traditional “strip harvesting” hair restoration. Instead of removing a strip section of hair from the donor site, smaller units of just one to four hair follicles are sourced and transferred to the area of thinning or baldness. Many patients benefit from NeoGraft to treat areas such as the temples, crown, or hairline.
One of the most notable benefits of NeoGraft is reduced scarring compared to other hair restoration methods. NeoGraft results in very small, circular scars in the donor area, which are unnoticeable. This means that NeoGraft patients can wear their hair as short as they like after the procedure. These scars are concealed only by keeping the hair longer, meaning that patients are limited in the hairstyles and haircuts they can wear without revealing their hair restoration scars.
Patients and many physicians also prefer NeoGraft because the procedure is less invasive and more comfortable compared to FUT. NeoGraft is completed using a very small, handheld tool to excise the hair follicles and no stitches or staples are required to close incisions. Patients find that this method is less painful and their recovery time is very short. In fact, most patients can return to their normal routines just days after their NeoGraft procedure.
In addition, NeoGraft results in the most natural-looking results possible. Because hair is added in such small units, a natural-looking hairline and growth pattern can be achieved. Unlike the distinctive look of “hair plugs” in the past, NeoGraft results appear so natural that it’s unlikely anyone will notice you’ve had a hair restoration at all.
NeoGraft does work, assuming that you are a suitable candidate and you choose a qualified practice to perform your procedure. Before you move forward with NeoGraft, Dr. Ransom will examine your hair to determine whether you have a suitable amount of donor hair to restoration to areas of thinning or baldness. Depending on the cause of your hair loss, it may also be recommended that you pair NeoGraft with another treatment, such as medication and/or other at-home care.
Maintaining your NeoGraft results can be achieved by following a nutritious and balanced diet, avoiding stress, and getting adequate sleep. This will help you heal quickly from the procedure, grow thicker and healthier hair, and achieve your best possible results.
NeoGraft is a great option for patients who have some hair thinning or baldness and want to achieve permanent hair restoration results without the noticeable scarring of other hair restoration procedures. Before you have NeoGraft, you should be generally healthy overall and have adequate hair in a donor site. Donor hair is usually placed from the back of the head near the nape of the neck.
