NeoGraft Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) for Hair Transplant
Hair transplant methods have come a long way in the last few decades. Now there are non-surgical techniques that are less invasive with no scarring and better results. The NeoGraft® hair transplant system was the first FDA-approved hair restoration device, offering cutting-edge hair restoration. At LM Medical NYC, we offer NeoGraft follicular unit extraction (FUE) for hair transplant at our facilities in Greenwich Village and the Upper East Side.
Losing hair can be a traumatic experience for men and women. Thinning, receding or balding hair can change your appearance and impact your confidence. Hair loss can be linked to many different causes, from genetics and hormone imbalance to health conditions, aging, medications and other factors. Regardless of the cause of hair loss, there are options for restoring fuller, more youthful hair. NeoGraft hair transplant procedures using FUE can provide beautiful, natural results for individuals with hair loss.
What Is Follicular Unit Extraction?
Hair transplant procedures have changed with the use of the follicular unit extraction, or FUE, method. In the past, hair transplants required incisions and sutures to remove hair from one area of the scalp to another. The strips of hair follicles were removed, leaving linear scars and stitched in place, creating more scarring. FUE is a non-surgical technique that removes individual hair follicles without incisions, stitches or scarring.
NeoGraft follicular unit extraction (FUE) for hair transplant is an innovative option for restoring lost hair. The process uses a pneumatic, automated device that removes hair follicles from one area and transplants it to the desired area on the scalp. The process uses a punch and suction technique that preserves the hair follicle for improved results when the follicle is transplanted. No incisions are made in the skin, only a small hole when the follicle is removed and transplanted. The holes heal quickly, and no visible scar remains.
NeoGraft Hair Transplant Experience
NeoGraft hair transplant procedures are minimally-invasive and not painful. Patients are awake during the procedure – a local anesthetic is used on the scalp to ensure there is no discomfort. The efficient system allows for hundreds of follicles to be harvested quickly then transferred to the desired area. Dr. Lesley Rabach, our facial plastic surgeon, carefully inserts the hair follicles into the scalp to create thicker, fuller hair.
The FUE hair transplant procedure usually requires four to eight hours to complete. There is minimal downtime required after hair restoration. Patients can expect to see new hair growth in about 3-4 months after their procedure, with noticeably thicker hair appearing beyond six months. The new hair can be styled, cut and maintained like the rest of your natural hair.
Men and women with various levels of hair loss can be good candidates for the NeoGraft FUE hair transplant procedure. We perform hair restoration for people with short, long or shaved hair, as well as those who have had previous hair transplant surgery. The NeoGraft procedure is ideal for those who want to hide scarring from a previous hair restoration surgery.
