Advantages of NeoGraft over manual FUE techniques

FUE hair transplant has revolutionized the way hair transplantation is performed. Follicular unit extraction is a method of hair transplant in which hair follicle units are extracted from levels of high density such as the back or side of the head. Most of the hairs on these sites contain one to four hair follicles which increase vitality and growth on the desired transplanted area.

It helps more hair follicles to survive the transplantation. Most patients appreciate this procedure. This surgical technique uses a minimal depth scoring punch device in order to loosen the follicle from the surrounding area. Hair follicle units are then extracted using a 0.8 or 1.0 mm punch minimal depth incision. Hair follicles are placed manually into tiny slits in the balding region allowing for the most natural growth.

FUE technology can also be done manually but it’s time consuming and it limits the number of grafts taken in one session. Automated FUE is a more modern and efficient technique.

Candidates for NEOGRAFT Miami hair transplant

Contrary to popular belief, there are many factors that are considered before deciding if a patient is a good candidate to undergo hair transplant surgery. There are some things to consider first:

  • Age: Younger patients (18-25) generally don’t qualify for this procedure since their hair loss can persist over time. Undergoing the hair transplant surgery is not ideal because this type of baldness will extremely progress with age.
  • Sex: It is known that men and women lose hair differently. Men have some specific areas in their scalp where hair is very thin meanwhile, women usually experience diffusive thinning on the entire head. However, some women may experience specific areas of acute hair, which make them good candidates for a Neograft procedure. If a patient is experiencing diffusive thinning all over the scalp, they are generally not a good candidate for this procedure.
  • Amount of hair loss: When hair loss is stabilized, it’s easier for the doctor to plant grafts into the appropriate areas. Patients who are 1 or 2 category of the Norwood Scale for hair loss should avoid the hair transplant process. For these patients, non-surgical hair restoration or non-surgical hair replacement may be a better option.
  • Type of hair: Patients with thicker hair, have more chances with FUE hair transplant since it gives a fuller appearance.
  • Race: This may also be another important factor. Asians, for example, have very straight hair with less thickness than Caucasians. Neograft surgeons that have experience transplanting hair on Asian patients may be more qualified to perform such procedure. On the other hand, African American patients have coarse and curly hair which is very advantageous for hair transplantation. But they have more probability of having scars after the procedure has been performed.
  • Scalp laxity: If the scalp is loose it’s easier to remove donor hair and there are also less chances of scarring. This is something surgeons will evaluate before performing a procedure for hair transplant, and it will help them determine how much hair can be removed.

Ideal Male Candidate for Automated FUE procedure:

Although hair restoration surgery improves a man’s general sense of being and appearance, not every man is a good candidate for this type of surgery. Men who wish to undergo this type of procedure must have realistic expectations and remember there is a limited amount of hair to work with. When the hair grafts available for transplantation are not used in a calculated and wise manner, the outcome may not be as expected.

The ideal candidates for men’s hair implants are:

  • Men who are experiencing hair loss brought on by Male Pattern Baldness (MPB) for approximately 5 years or more and are in class 3 or above in the Norwood Scale.
  • Male hair loss was caused by trauma or burns.
  • Men who lost hair after a surgical procedure such as a face-lift.
  • Men who have realistic expectations and understand that hair loss may persist even after the procedure or prescription drugs.

Ideal Female Candidate for NeoGraft

Women are less likely to qualify for this procedure because they typically experience diffusive thinning of the hair. This type of thinning includes the back and the sides of the scalp which are the major “donor” sites for a hair transplant procedure. According to experts only about 2-5% of women may qualify for this procedure and typically have better results with other hair loss treatments. Potential female candidates include:

  • Women who suffered hair loss caused by Alopecia Areata or Alopecia Marginalis.
  • Women with hair loss around incision sites from previous plastic or cosmetic surgeries.
  • Women with pattern of baldness similar to men.
  • Women with hair loss produced by trauma, including scarring from accidents, chemical burns, and burn victims.

Neograft hair restoration: Treated areas

If you are experiencing hair loss on your eyebrows and scalp the FUE grafting techniques may be a great option for you. This innovative hair restoration graft system can performed even the smallest tasks such as Automated FUE to the eyebrows and scalp hair. In the treated areas, there will be no visible scar and the doctors may even be able to eliminate any previous scars the patient may have had.

Do Neograft hair transplants work?

Hair transplant surgery comprises extracting hair follicles individually from a donor site and repositioning them to specific areas lacking hair. After you meet with your surgeon at the initial consultation, he or she will determine which hair transplant technique is best for you.

Receding hairline hair loss and an overall thinning of hair is very common as individual’s age. Other factors such as a change in hormones, family history of baldness, and trauma may also contribute to hair loss. It’s important to talk to your hair transplant surgeon to determine the cause of hair loss in order to find the perfect hair loss solution.

The amount of procedures a patient may need all depends on the extent of the patient’s hair loss, hair loss rate, and the amount of donor hair available. Men generally have the results they are looking for in one or two hair transplant sessions. Women generally need more sessions in order to achieve more density.

Your initial Neograft consultation

The surgeon or hair transplant specialist will first examine your head thoroughly with a Hair Densitometer and take your medical history. Measuring your hair density will let the surgeon evaluate the amount of hair in each follicular unit and calculate the hair loss pattern patients may experience over time when applied to the specific category of hair loss.

The Hair Densitometer also helps the surgeon or hair transplant specialist compare fine and thick hair, their length and diameter. The entire procedure should be explained, including any risks, and what will be expected during the months following the procedure.

Recovery from a Neograft hair replacement procedure

Recovery can be long and cause mild to moderate pain. Patients will be prescribed analgesics for a few days and they will be advised to wear a surgical dressing over the scalp for about 2 to 4 days. Antibiotics are also prescribed and a hair growing drug to help in the growth of the transplanted hair. Within 15 day the transplanted hair will fall and new hair will grow again.

Some possible side effects that may occur include:

  • Forehead and scalp swelling.
  • Infection and bleeding.
  • The hair thinning or shock loss.

Neograft hair transplant results

Patients who have more hair density and scalp laxity will have more variety of hair grafts available to transplant which accomplishes better results. Hair density is simply the amount of hair follicles and scalp laxity is how flexible the scalp is. To elaborate, when the skin and hair color is close, the hair’s coverage will also look better in appearance. For example, African American patients usually have dark curly hair; therefore, they will have the best visually-appealing hair transplant results. Patients with light skin and darker hair pose a more artistic challenge since they have the most contrast between their skin color and hair color.
