PRLog - Oct. 13, 2010 - MORTON GROVE, Ill. -- Dr. Gregory Turowski, M.D., PhD, Medical Director of the New Horizons Center for Cosmetic Surgery in Skokie, Illinois, announces the availability of groundbreaking new technology for hair transplantation. According to Dr. Turowski, "This procedure is equally effective for both men and women and will render existing hair transplantation methods obsolete. We are the only facility in the Midwest currently offering this procedure." Known as the "Neograft Hair Replacement System", this new device utilizes "FUE" (Follicular Unit Extraction) to quickly and painlessly remove hair follicles from the back of the head and implant the follicles into the balding areas. Using controlled pneumatic pressure to smoothly slide out each graft, there is no twisting, pulling or cutting thus avoiding any damage to the graft. Then, the grafts are rapidly re-implanted which maintains their viability and increases the success of the grafting process. The surgeon uses his artistic skills to create a natural-appearing hairline. After a brief shedding process that occurs in the second or third week, the new hair growth begins in the third or fourth month and continues to grow normally and ultimately lasts a lifetime. The end result is the maximum possible scalp coverage with no surgery, no linear scarring, minimal discomfort, fast recovery times and natural looking results.

Hair loss affects approximately 35 million men and 21 million women in the United States alone. Over 40% of men will have noticeable hair loss by the age of 35, and 65% of women will have noticeable hair loss by the time they reach 60 years of age. Now there is an alternative to baldness. Unlike the old outdated "punch grafting" technique, this clinically proven process performed by Dr. Turowski replaces most or nearly all of the lost hair at the crown in a natural growth pattern and refines the thinning hairline at the forehead.
The average time for the procedure is four hours depending upon the patient's degree of baldness. The average cost for the procedure is from $3000 to $10,000 again depending upon the patient's degree of baldness.
