Hair restoration has come a long way, even in just the past 10 years. Atlanta plastic surgeon Dr. Keith Jeffords shares that with hair transplant technology today your scalp often doesn’t need to pay the price.
Hair Restoration Technology Changes The Game
“Follicular unit extraction (FUE) doesn’t create a scar,” he says. “Instead, you remove a follicle at a time to reconstruct the hair lines.” Dr. Jeffords uses NeoGraft to perform FUE procedures. NeoGraft is a technology that suctions each of the grafts out that are then transplanted to bald or thinning areas of the scalp.
This automated follicle removal devices allow physicians to harvest 600 to 1,000 grafts per hour, he says. “I just did a 3,000-graft case, and finished harvesting in 2.5 hours,” he says, “It’s much quicker, much safer, with no scars.”
New FUE technology, such as NeoGraft, also allows hair restoration specialists to revise previous FUT scars by grafting hair into the scars and filling in that area. This can also be done by not even adding hair.”If you have a white scar that shows through dark hair, you can make holes in that scar so it will revascularize, turning a white scar into a flesh-colored scar.”
