According to the American Academy of Dermatology, the most common reason men lose their hair is due to genetics. Because of this, combatting hair loss can be very difficult and the only permanent solution to this problem is hair transplantation. There are a few different methods for hair transplantation that use different techniques to harvest the hair, but NeoGraft Hair Restoration is by far the least invasive and most advanced method that is on the market today.
Instead of the typical strip method for removal, each hair follicle is moved one by one. This method prevents the unsightly scar that comes with removing a whole strip of hair at one time. The individual grafts come from all over the scalp so there is not one area with noticeable gaps or bleeding. Also, since each follicle is placed one at a time, you don’t get the plugged “doll’s head” look that comes from older techniques.
NeoGraft uses a follicular unit extractions method that gently removes the follicle grafts, rather than surgical methods. There are no scalpel incisions, sutures, or staples involved that could cause more pain during and after the procedure. Overall, this procedure is much faster and less painful than other grafting methods.
Since each hair is moved one at a time from all over the head, there is no need to remove an entire strip of the scalp. The strip method also involves the use of a scalpel where the NeoGraft method uses a tiny skin punch, combined with gentle suction created by a pneumatic pump that involves virtually no cutting or scarring. In general, patients are able to return to normal activities within a few days without scarring or stitches that need to be removed. Without stitches, you can avoid extra appointments and the self-consciousness that comes with having stitches on your head.
With NeoGraft, you get superior results without the scarring, pain, or long recovery time. If you are interested in learning more about NeoGraft, contact New Image Plastic Surgery today to schedule a consultation.
