If you’re dealing with a thinning hairline, or eyebrows, there are several hair restoration options available to you. However, not all procedures yield the same healthy and permanent hair results that patients are looking for. Dr. Ransom is proud to offer NeoGraft hair restoration to patients to help them achieve fuller hair that lasts.
NeoGraft is an FUE, or follicular unit excision, method of hair restoration. The procedure works by moving individual hair follicles from an area of healthy hair growth, typically at the back of the head, to an area where you experience thinning or baldness. The NeoGraft procedure has many benefits, including short recovery periods and enhanced precision for better looking results. Dr. Ransom also offers NeoGraft for the eyebrows, so patients can restore these areas for a flattering and youthful look.
FUT, or follicular unit transfer, is another type of hair restoration. In this procedure, strips of hair are removed and replaced in the desired area to restore the hair. This procedure is much more invasive compared to NeoGraft, with a longer recovery period. Another major difference is that FUT results in a long, linear scar at the donor site, which patients must conceal by wearing their hair long. In contrast, NeoGraft results in no noticeable scarring.
Once the recovery process is complete, NeoGraft results are permanent. After the procedure, patients will immediately see their new hairline, fuller restored eyebrows. Hair will quickly grow following the procedure, but often sheds later. However, following these steps, hair grows back healthy, full, and permanent. These results are typically seen about six months after the procedure, but continue to improve for up to a year. Patients can then enjoy their full and youthful hair with no restrictions on how they choose to cut or style it.
Thinning hair or balding is common among both men and women for many reasons. Regardless of the cause, losing hair is often a source of self esteem issues that can begin to affect your daily life. Choosing a hair restoration procedure like NeoGraft early allows you to start growing new, healthy hair sooner.
Before your NeoGraft procedure, you may be advised to visit a dermatologist or your primary care doctor to ensure you’re in good health and to address any underlying reasons for your hair loss, such as a hormonal imbalance. Then, you can schedule a consultation with Dr. Ransom to learn if NeoGraft is the solution for you.
