Most men and many women experience hair loss (alopecia). It occurs as you get older or at any age due to genetics, hormonal imbalance or illness. So many factors can impact your hair follicles, hence the commonality of thinning hair.
Incredible Advances in Hair Replacement and Restoration
Unfortunately, hair loss can significantly impact many people’s self-confidence since it is such a graphic element of your appearance. However, for those affected by their balding, you are in luck. The last decade has given rise to incredible advances in hair replacement and restoration techniques, and LM Medical NYC offers these cutting-edge hair transplant options.
Hair transplants are the most effective and natural-looking options to create a thicker head of hair. They are surgeries that take hair follicles from the back or sides of your scalp or another part of the body and relocate them into the balding areas.
The latest hair replacement and restoration procedures include follicular unit extraction (FUE) using the advanced NeoGraft® hair transplant system and follicular unit transplantation (FUT). At LM Medical NYC, we offer both methods.
FUE versus FUT
FUE is one of the world’s newest and most advanced hair restoration techniques. It removes individual follicles without incisions or stitches and transplants them to the desired area using the advanced NeoGraft® hair transplant system. It is a less invasive approach to other hair transplant procedures.
FUT is the predecessor to NeoGraft FUE. It involves removing strips of hair follicles from a fuller scalp area to be separated into follicle units for transplantation to the balding area. It is the cheaper and faster option, since more hair follicles can be transplanted in one session.
Benefits of NeoGraft Hair Transplants
NeoGraft is a semi-automated version of FUE and is widely recognized as more effective than other FUE techniques. The robotic system removes some human error associated with hair transplant surgeries. Plus, it shortens procedure time because more hair follicles can be harvested at a time than by manually harvesting follicles.
Some other benefits of NeoGraft hair transplants include:
- A higher rate of success thanks to reduced trauma to hair follicles (compared to traditional FUE and FUT surgeries)
- Minimal discomfort during the procedure and minimal downtime after
- It is a non-surgical procedure requiring no stitches or sutures; therefore, there will be no linear scarring
The NeoGraft Procedure
With the NeoGraft hair transplant system, the surgeon extracts your hair follicles with a wand that uses pneumonic pressure (punch and suction). The holes created in the skin are tiny and heal rapidly, leaving no noticeable scars as other restoration procedures can. Then, the surgeon uses a specialized tool that controls insertion depth to implant those hair follicles into the balding parts of your scalp.
Are You a Candidate for NeoGraft FUE?
If you are at least 25, have thick hair fibers, hair loss not caused by medication or stress and are free of medical conditions that can affect surgery, you are a candidate for hair transplantation.
NeoGraft hair transplant results are beautiful and lasting. So, do not spend another day displeased with your thinning hair. Instead, make an appointment to see our team at LM Medical NYC and determine if NeoGraft FUE is suitable for you.
