NeoGraft is the latest advancement in hair restoration and offers several clear advantages over the traditional hair transplant method. The procedure is significantly less-invasive, requires significantly less downtime, and eliminates the linear scar created by current methods. For years, a technique called the "STRIP" method, or follicular unit transection (FUT) has been employed in hair transplantation. This method removes part of one's scalp, requiring sutures or staples to close the wound. Patients required considerable downtime & limited activity, and ultimately were left with an unsightly linear scar. Short hair is not an option for patients undergoing this procedure. Unfortunately, this procedure has been down by most hair restoration specialists, and CONTINUES to be done. Now, with the NeoGraft procedure, patients can resume normal activities quickly and often return to work the very next day! As it is minimally-invasing, healing time is greatly reduced, there is no need for painful stitches and there is no long linear scar. Residual hair donor area numbness and tightness often caused by an incision are eliminated. Best of all, results are much more natural due to the precision of the harvesting and implantation process.
The NeoGraft procedure, also known as Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), is performed by removing one hair (follicular unit or graft) at time and placing it in another are one at a time. This is a very tedious and time-consuming process, and as a result was rarely used by hair restoration specialists. When it was, a hair transplant session was often limited to transplanting 500 to 600 follicular unit grafts in a day. With NeoGraft, up to 3000+ grafts can be completed in a single day, making the process much faster and easier on the patient. It is a true breakthrough in hair restoration.
