As many as 85% of men will experience some form of hair loss throughout their life. While this problem used to only have mediocre solutions of hair plugs and toupees, cutting-edge technology has crafted a way to transplant hair for a seamless and natural-looking result. Here’s what you need to know about NeoGraft® hair transplant.
What is the NeoGraft® Hair Transplant?
The NeoGraft® hair transplant is a special technique that uses follicular unit extraction (FUE) to harvest each individual hair that is then transplanted into the affected area. Because NeoGraft® uses your own hair follicles to create regrowth in the scalp, the procedure results in natural-looking, naturally grown hair. The NeoGraft® hair transplant is a gentle, minimally invasive procedure that doesn’t require the use of a scalpel to ensure minimal discomfort and minimal downtime.
What is Better: FUT or FUE?
When people think of hair transplants, they generally picture the follicular unit transplant (FUT) or the strip method of transplanting hair. FUE takes the same principles as FUT, but with a little twist. Here’s what you need to know about the two.
- FUT is characterized by the method in which doctors remove a strip of donor skin from the scalp. The strip of skin is put under a microscope and hair follicles are extracted to be transplanted into the area with thinning hair. The donor area is then stitched up, leaving a linear scar to form on the scalp.
- Not to be confused with FUT, FUE is characterized by excising individual follicular units using a .8mm to 1mm perforation. Because there is no strip of skin removed from the scalp, there are no linear scars left on the scalp. The small scars left by the perforations are nearly invisible.
If you are interested in a hair transplant method that’s minimally invasive and reduces the chance of invasive scarring, FUE with NeoGraft® may be right for you.
Is Hair Transplantation Permanent?
FUE using NeoGraft® is a long-term solution for thinning or lost hair, however, you may need multiple treatments in order to maintain the results you desire. While FUE is an advanced technique in the world of hair transplants, results do not happen overnight. It will take about 10-15 months for the transplanted hairs to fully grow, thicken and mature.
How Much Does the NeoGraft® Hair Transplant Cost?
In reality, there is no one correct answer to this question. The cost of your NeoGraft® hair transplant is going to vary widely depending on the size of the area that needs to be treated and the number of treatments required to help you achieve your ultimate results. At Buinewicz Cosmetic Surgery and MedSpa, we offer financing options to help you break up your bill into smaller, more manageable monthly payments that may better suit your lifestyle and budget.
