Dec. 1, 2010 - PRLog -- Philadelphia - The “NeoGraft” is the first FDA approved automated hair transplant device for FUE (follicular unit extraction). Hair is harvested without leaving the traditional large linear scar associated with the “strip graft donor harvesting method”. Though usually for men, this procedure is also ideal for women including those in need of eye brow restoration. 

Board certified “Top Doc Philadelphia” plastic surgeon Dr. Paul Glat is the first physician in Philadelphia to provide the NeoGraft hair transplant procedure.

With “FUE”, hair follicles are gently lifted out of the scalp with a tiny instrument and gentle suction, and then placed into the bald or thinning areas with reverse air pressure. The results are so remarkably natural looking that many of the first patients have been doctors themselves!

NeoGraft as a minimally invasive procedure offers many advantages over traditional “strip excision” transplants. Not only is there no long linear scar, there is no need for painful suturing, healing time is substantially faster, hair styles may be shorter and previous patients thought to have exhausted donor areas are again viable transplant candidates! Residual donor area numbness and tightness have been eliminated. Results are incredibly more natural due to pure size and precision of this process.

"NeoGraft has totally changed the way we do hair restoration," says Dr. Glat. "We rarely need to do the strip method with it’s long incision, the more painful postoperative period and the potential scarring. In fact, we have been able to use the NeoGraft 
to perform procedures on patients who were not good candidates for a traditional procedure due to lack of donor site. We’ve also had numerous patients who never would have considered hair restoration if they had to deal with a long scar on the back of their 

Here's how it works: After consulting with the patient and planning the pattern of hair restoration, a small strip of hair in the back of the head is trimmed short. Then a handpiece with a .08 mm or 1 mm instrument extracts each naturally occurring follicular unit (containing from 1-5 hairs) from the scalp. By using gentle pneumatic pressure to smoothly slide out each follicular unit, there is no twisting, pulling or cutting, thus avoiding any damage. These hairs are then quickly implanted into the bald or balding areas maintaining their viability and increasing the success of the grafting process.

After a brief shedding process that occurs in the second or third week, the new hair begins growth in approximately 3 months and continues to grow normally, ultimately lasting a lifetime. The result is the maximum possible scalp coverage with no suturing, no linear scarring, minimal discomfort, fast recovery and natural looking results.

Given the time consuming and tedious nature of this procedure done manually, before the availability of the NeoGraft device, a hair transplant procedure was often limited to transplanting 500 to 600 follicular unit grafts in one day. With NeoGraft, up to 1,500 grafts can be completed in a single day, making the process much easier on the patient.

"The choice is pretty clear!," says Dr. Glat. "With Neograft the results are more natural, heal faster and produce no offensive scars, provide new hope to former patients and are equally effective for women."  For information, visit http://seahair.com
