If you’re concerned about your balding or thinning hair, you are not alone. Millions of men and women of all ages and walks of life are struggling with hair loss and its negative effects on their self-esteem and quality of life.
You may have considered undergoing a hair restoration procedure, but were worried about discomfort, scarring, unnatural-looking results or a lengthy recovery time.
At the Atlanta Institute for Facial Aesthetic Surgery, we are now excited and proud to be able to offer our patients NeoGraft, the most cutting-edge hair transplant process in the world. Read on to discover more about this innovative technique and what makes it the best choice for you.
What Is NeoGraft?
NeoGraft is an automated, state-of-the-art technology that is the least invasive hair transplantation technique available. NeoGraft is a powerful hair transplant system that improves upon the follicular unit extraction (FUE) technique – the most advanced method in the industry today. While manual FUE hair restoration represents a massive improvement over older techniques, such as the strip method, NeoGraft takes FUE to the next level.
How Does NeoGraft Work?
The NeoGraft system radically improves the accuracy and speed of manual extraction instruments. NeoGraft harvests hair from the donor site in tiny bunches of one to four hairs, called follicular units. The automated NeoGraft device gently rotates around the follicular unit and removes the graft using gentle pneumatic pressure.
Here are the top 10 reasons so many patients are choosing NeoGraft hair restoration as a solution to their hair loss.
1. NeoGraft produces completely natural-looking results.
Visible scarring is one of our patients’ biggest concerns about getting hair restoration surgery. If worries about scars have prevented you from seeking a remedy for your hair loss, you’ll be excited to know that, unlike older techniques, NeoGraft creates natural hair regrowth with no visible linear scarring. Since the procedure does not involve extracting a strip of skin, all you will see is your growing hair – not scars.
2. The technique is very discreet.
Another reason this hair restoration technique is so revolutionary is that it is incredibly discreet. People will notice how much better you look, without ever suspecting you had a hair restoration procedure. Patients who receive NeoGraft hair transplants will have freedom to wear their hair short or long, and in any style they prefer.
3. NeoGraft is quicker and less invasive than older methods of hair restoration.
Previous hair restoration methods required the surgeon to cut a strip of skin from the back of the head. With NeoGraft, there are no incisions necessary, which eliminates the need for surgical staples or sutures. To extract hair for transplanting, the NeoGraft system combines a coring process with light suction, which eliminates pulling or twisting that can damage the hair follicles, and results in a higher likelihood that they will “take” successfully.
4. Minimal recovery time is necessary with NeoGraft.
A vast advantage of NeoGraft over previous hair transplant methods is the shorter recovery process. Patients will not need to be placed under general anesthesia, which means they can return home from the clinic sooner. Though every patient is different, most patients are able to return to work and resume other normal daily routines within two to five days following the procedure, and the donor site is virtually undetectable shortly thereafter.
5. NeoGraft is highly effective.
NeoGraft is the best choice for many reasons, but the most important one is because it works so well. It has the highest success rate of any other hair restoration procedure, and many patients can expect to see an increase in their hair density after just one NeoGraft session.
6. The NeoGraft process is gentle.
Compared to other hair transplant procedures, patients who have undergone NeoGraft report little to no discomfort or pain during or after the procedure. The process takes place under local anesthesia, and there are no sutures, staples or stitches.
7. All patients are good candidates.
In the past, hair restoration was less accessible than it is today. Some patients were disqualified from getting a hair restoration procedure because of criteria such as age, hair texture and even skin complexion. However, the NeoGraft procedure is extremely versatile. It has proven to be effective for all ethnicities, and also benefits both male and female patients. Even patients who have undergone a strip procedure in the past can benefit from NeoGraft hair restoration.
8. NeoGraft is safe.
There is no risk associated with NeoGraft. In fact, it is the first and only FDA-cleared follicular unit harvesting and implantation system. Side effects are minimal and include mild swelling and bruising for some patients.
9. You’ll look and feel better.
Almost every culture in human history has linked luxurious, healthy hair with youth and beauty. As a result, baldness or thinning hair can result in a loss of self-esteem, and can even cause severe emotional issues such as depression and anxiety. When you are regrowing your own natural head of hair, you’ll experience a confidence boost like none other. You’ll once again be able to enjoy expressing your individuality by wearing your hair in whatever style makes you feel good. You may even find greater success in your professional and personal life.
