Are you struggling with hair thinning or loss? Many men and women experience hair loss with aging. Certain medical conditions and genetics can also be contributing factors. The NeoGraft® Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) method for hair transplant can be an effective solution to help you restore a healthy head of hair. This cosmetic procedure provides advantages over some other hair transplant methods to help you achieve a healthy head of hair and restore self-confidence about your appearance.
How NeoGraft Follicular Unit Extraction Works
The NeoGraft Follicular Unit Extraction works by extracting hair follicles from the thicker parts of your hair and placing these where your hair is thinning the most. This aesthetic procedure differs from other FUE transplants because a board-certified plastic surgeon uses a specialized tool for harvesting grafts rather than manually selecting follicles. A large number of grafts can be extracted during one session with little to no visible scarring. Before the procedure, a surgeon will apply topical anesthesia to the targeted area. It is highly unlikely you will feel pinching or pulling during the procedure, but you may experience slight pressure during the extraction.
Depending on the number of hair follicles needing to be extracted, the process can take four to six hours. Once complete, the targeted area will be bandaged. You may experience slight discomfort, numbness, swelling or scabbing for the first few weeks. You may be able to return to normal activities within a few days. Contact your surgeon if you experience ingrown hairs, bleeding, inflammation or signs of infection. Full results are most noticeable within six months to a year after the procedure.
Benefits of NeoGraft Follicular Unit Extraction
NeoGraft Follicular Unit Extraction is one of the newest and most advanced hair transplant techniques that can provide several benefits over other methods. The procedure can reduce the damage to hair follicles that happens with other similar surgeries. There are typically fewer complications, and no stitches or staples are required. The FUE surgery is faster than other transplant surgeries. With other hair transplant methods, you may need multiple sessions over the course of three weeks versus one session with a NeoGraft FUE transplant.
Ideal Candidates for NeoGraft Follicular Unit Extraction
Ideal candidates for this hair transplant are in good overall health and able to tolerate topical anesthesia. The minimally invasive procedure is commonly used to treat male pattern baldness, but both genders can receive beneficial results. You may not qualify for the procedure if you have certain medical conditions. Make sure to tell the surgeon about any medications or supplements you are taking, as these may cause adverse reactions or complications.
A consultation with a plastic surgeon is necessary to determine if you are an ideal candidate for NeoGraft Follicular Unit Extraction. During this appointment, the surgeon will review your medical history and perform a physical examination. You can ask questions and learn about the benefits and risks of the procedure. If you are not an ideal candidate, the surgeon can recommend alternative solutions to help you achieve your hair restoration goals. Treatment plans are individually tailored to deliver optimal results for a thick head of hair.
