What Makes NeoGraft Different Than Other Hair Transplants

Category: Blog

If you’ve noticed your bald spot slowly getting larger, your hairline receding, or your scalp becoming more visible with thinning hair, you may be in the process of thinking about a hair transplant or hair restoration procedure. If that’s the case, you should know about NeoGraft, a permanent hair transplant technique that leaves your head looking completely natural, with no lengthy scar and a quick recovery time.

What is NeoGraft?

NeoGraft is a proprietary form of follicular unit extraction (FUE) hair transplantation, which is distinct from follicular unit transplantation (FUT), or “strip” hair transplant. The NeoGraft approach removes follicles of healthy hair in a distributed manner, rather than the FUT approach which excises a strip of the scalp to harvest healthy follicles for transplantation. The result is an evenly distributed head of hair once the grafts take hold and begin growing hair, and the NeoGraft has added benefits on top of the manual FUE approach that may make it more effective for certain patients.

Benefits of NeoGraft Hair Transplant

Although the procedure utilizes the same general techniques as an FUE hair transplant, NeoGraft has an advantage. Rather than using a manual process of selecting and extracting each individual follicle, the NeoGraft is a hair restoration system that comes with an automated mechanical follicle extractor that increases the number of follicles that are removed in the same amount of time as the manual process.

While in some cases (such as with curly or very thick hair) it may not be as accurate, it is much more efficient than traditional FUE, meaning you’ll see better results in a shorter amount of time.

Additional benefits of NeoGraft include:

  • High success rate for follicle transfer
  • Minimal downtime
  • Little to no scarring
  • Quicker procedure compared to traditional techniques

Good Candidates for NeoGraft

The best candidates for NeoGraft are people who have thinning, receding or balding hair that is not the result of a health condition or prescription medication (such as chemotherapy). Anyone can have a NeoGraft procedure, although it is most common among men who have male pattern baldness with straight hair. The best candidates are still capable of growing hair in the transplanted area and have tried unsuccessfully to restore their hair with non-surgical treatments, such as topical minoxidil (Rogaine).

Results and Recovery

Everyone is different and has different goals from hair restoration surgery with NeoGraft. In general, upon full recovery, you’ll notice your hair growing back thicker in the areas of balding or thinning, with full results taking up to several months to be apparent due to the nature of hair growth phases. NeoGraft’s automated system makes the process easier and more uniform compared to a manual approach, which can ease the recovery process and make the results appear more natural.
