FUE/NeoGraft Hair Transplant For Both Men And Women
NeoGraft is an innovative automated hair transplant system that helps follicle harvesting during a Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) hair transplant. This dramatically enhances the accuracy and speed over previously used manual extraction devices.
As FUE/NeoGraft is minimally invasive, it is appropriate for both men and women seeking to restore their own living and growing hair via transplantation. Board certified plastic surgeons at the Aesthetic Center for Plastic Surgery provide NeoGraft hair restoration to patients in Houston, Texas, TX, and surrounding locations.
Male/Female Candidacy for FUE/NeoGraft
Ideal candidates for FUE include patients who wish to wear their hair short in the sides or back of their scalp or those who want minimal activity restriction (for instance, athletes) after their hair transplant procedure. On top of this, the NeoGraft FUE System is used for ‘scar camouflage’ procedures in patients who have had linear harvests in the past as well as for body hair transplants.
People who are in good overall health with moderate hair loss and adequate donor hair on the back of the scalp to transplant into the balding sites are good candidates for hair restoration surgery. Patients with greater hair density, more donor hair, and thickness can usually expect fuller outcomes.
Also, it is vital for patients to have realistic aesthetic goals. Hair transplantation offers excellent, natural outcomes but cannot restore the hair density to when a person was in their teens. The doctor will evaluate the level of coverage necessary for a specific patient to offer them the appearance that they seek.
NeoGraft – Frequently Asked Questions
How is NeoGraft performed?
NeoGraft makes use of controlled pneumatic pressure to slide the graft out in a smoother manner. This avoids pulling or twisting that can potentially damage the graft. The grafts can be re-planted sooner, which helps them remain stronger, creating a more natural looking hairline.
What is an “FUE” hair transplant?
“F.U.E.” or “Follicular-Unit Extraction” is a cutting-edge, minimally invasive transplant technique which enables the harvesting of individual follicles from the donor sites without any incisions or sutures. For this reason, this procedure does not leave any linear scars.
What are the advantages of NeoGraft over manual FUE techniques?
The NeoGraft system is highly ergonomic and works as a natural extension of the surgeons’ hand. This allows for quicker and more targeted harvesting of hair follicles. People undergoing the NeoGraft procedure achieve their goal with less time spent in the procedure room or altogether fewer FUE procedures.
How long will the hair last?
Hair transplantation does not put a stop to hair loss. Certain individuals will require continued management, and further sessions will likely be necessary, especially if the balding pattern continues with age.
The desire for higher hair density or progressive hair loss will warrant more transplants. During the initial consultation, the doctor will discuss facets such as an estimate of the balding pattern as well as the number of procedures required.
Do I have to get a total ‘buzz cut’ to have an FUE/NeoGraft procedure?
No, this is not necessary if a person wears their hair long. In case the donor hair is appropriately long, FUE/NeoGraft hair follicle harvesting can be done by shaving tiny areas, which can be covered by the existing hair. Wearing the hair short helps shave it close for maximum yield. It appears more natural quicker as the transplanted grafts are short as well.
