NeoGraft® is one of the most minimally invasive hair transplantations procedures available on the market today. It requires no stitches, staples, or cutting. NeoGraft® is the first hair restoration procedure that is FDA-approved to use the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) method of hair transplantation.
During treatment, individual follicles are removed from the back of the scalp in groups of 1-4 hairs. These hairs are removed in such a way that the patient feels no uncomfortable pulling or tugging sensations. Once removed, these follicles are inserted carefully into the patient’s balding areas. Each of the tiny holes created by this follicle removal typically takes between 3-7 days to heal completely. Because it involves no cutting, this procedure results in absolutely no scarring.
This treatment also involves a quick recovery time, and is an excellent option for both male and female patients that are in good health, have only moderate hair loss and have thick, full hair in areas not affected by hair loss. Candidates must have a sufficient amount of donor hair on the back of their scalps.
Strip grafting is a better hair restoration option for patients with more severe cases of hair loss. During a surgical strip grafting procedure, a strip of hair follicles is moved from one part of the body to the area that balding is occurring on the scalp. This strip contains a significantly higher concentration of hair follicles than those transplanted during a NeoGraft® procedure.
Because this is a surgical procedure, it’s typically more uncomfortable to undergo than a NeoGraft® treatment. This technique also usually leaves a thin scar on the back of the head, but this is easily concealed by the hair. Following treatment, patients usually experience a fair degree of swelling. This can usually be managed with pain medications that can be prescribed by Dr. Nir.
