How Does a NeoGraft FUE Hair Transplant Work?
NeoGraft is a device largely used by cosmetic professionals to restore hair in patients suffering from bald patches or thinning hair. It is the only FDA-approved Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) system available.
This popular and efficient device aids the hair-transplantation procedure by automating the extraction and implantation of hair follicles. Using an innovative vacuum-like suction system, the device helps surgeons complete hair transplants more quickly compared to the other FUE methods.
Note that because the grafts in this system are not cut but suctioned, this ensures that they are healthier for use in the hair-transplant procedure.
What Are the Benefits Associated with a NeoGraft FUE Hair Transplant?
• High Success Rate: The procedure is simple yet delivers outstanding results. The graft survival rate with NeoGraft FUE is 98%, which is astonishingly high. This means you can reliably expect to see the results you’ve been hoping for.
• No Incisions: The treatment does not require the use of any scalpels or incisions. This minimizes the likelihood of post-treatment marks. And since there are no incisions, you will not need sutures or staples.
• Low Chance of Complications: There are very few potential complications associated with the NeoGraft hair-transplant procedure. It involves minimal pain and bleeding, both of which subside quickly.
• Fast Recovery: The recovery period after NeoGraft FUE is very short. It involves minimal downtime, so you’ll be able to get back to your routine in no time.
The NeoGraft FUE Process: Step-by-Step
Step 1 – Extraction of Hair Follicles: Dr. Bapna carefully extracts the hair follicles from the donor site (usually from the back of the head). He makes sure to extract grafts that are consistent in length and diameter with those present on the recipient site. Since the donor area has resisted hair loss, it is literally not possible to tell that hair was extracted from this area. The area heals quickly, within just a week.
Step 2 – Separation of Follicular Units: Once sufficient follicles have been harvested, they are separated based on the size and number of hair units. This allows Dr. Bapna to create a natural-looking hair pattern during the grafting process.
Step 3 – Preparation of Recipient Sites and Transplantation: Dr. Bapna cleans and prepares the recipient sites to receive the transfer according to the tailored plan. The transplantation of the donor hairs will then occur. The angle, direction, and pattern are precisely taken into account. Dr. Bapna will create the position and pattern according to your aesthetic goals, which will be discussed during a consultation.
Step 4 – Shedding and New Hair Growth: The transplanted follicles will begin to sync with the new area. By the end of second or third week, the transplanted grafts fall out, which is called shedding. After a few months, you can see new hair growth. To see the full results of the NeoGraft FUE hair transplant, you will need to wait for at least 12-15 months.
