How Does NeoGraft Work?
- Posted on: Mar 13 2020
NeoGraft is a follicular unit extraction (FUE) device for hair restoration. It is the only follicular unit harvesting and implantation system cleared by the FDA. So how does NeoGraft work?
What Is NeoGraft?
The NeoGraft device delivers automation of the FUE techniques which happens to be the most advanced technology in the hair transplant industry. NeoGraft is different than other FUE methods because it uses a vacuum-like suction to extract and implant follicles, making it more efficient and much quicker than other methods. The survival rate of grafts with NeoGraft is about 98%. The survival rate of grafts is higher than other FUE methods because the graft are suctioned and not “cut” or “plucked” out, making the grafts better quality for transplantation.
Benefits with NeoGraft
- minimal bleeding
- low risk of complications
- no scalpel incision (no linear scar)
- no sutures or staples
- high success rate
- quicker recovery
- minimal downtime
NeoGraft offers many benefits with a quicker recovery than the strip method, and most importantly, no linear scar on the back of the head. This makes this procedure one of the most desirable hair restoration techniques available today.
How Does NeoGraft Work?
FUE with NeoGraft is performed under local anesthesia in a surgical room at UFP Hair Restoration. Throughout the entire procedure the patient is awake and alert but can be given medication to help them relax and feel comfortable during the procedure. After the local anesthetic is injected, the procedure will begin.
The NeoGraft device is then used to extract the needed follicular units from the dense area on the back of the head. Dr. Thompson arranges these grafts in an aesthetically pleasing, natural position. The pattern is unique to each patient and the grafts are placed according to each individual patient’s needs.
Results following this procedure do take time to see and requires patience and commitment. The newly transplanted grafts usually fall out around week two or three. This is referred to as the shedding process and is completely normal. After the shedding , you will notice new hair growth within three to four months.
Results following FUE with NeoGraft are typically not fully apparent until 12-15 months after the patient’s initial surgery. The patient is then left with a thicker, fuller head of hair.
