NeoGraft has revolutionized the world of hair restoration in many ways. Not only does it help men and women experiencing baldness and thinning of the scalp achieve fullness, but it works great for facial hair as well.
Facial hair transplant surgery (beard transplant) with NeoGraft gives men the full beard they’ve always wanted. NeoGraft is an automated FUE system that extracts follicular units from a dense area in the back of the head one at a time. Traditional hair restoration methods require the removal of a strip of skin from the back of the head to extract grafts from prior to transplantation. The area where the strip was removed is then closed leaving a linear scar on the back of the head. For patients who like to have the option of wearing their hair short and don’t want a long scar to show, NeoGraft is certainly the best option. Downtime is minimal and the average graft survival rate is 98%.
The NeoGraft device requires little handling of the grafts and helps the surgeon avoid touching the follicles. Because of this and the exact way the grafts are extracted, there is little damage to the follicles. The device further helps the surgeon to maintain uniformity and thus, create precise transplants.
The grafts obtained with NeoGraft are then artistically transplanted into the beard for added fullness and a more distinct facial hair line. There is no pain, and the sites the grafts were extracted from shrink up and heal in a way that they are virtually undetectable.
Patients are instructed to keep a bandage in place for 24 hours. After the bandage is removed, it’s important to keep the areas covered when outdoors until everything is healed and the scabs have fallen off, typically one week after the procedure. At they time, they are then able to wash their face and hair as usual and can resume exercise.
The grafted hair follicles typically fall out due to shock loss within a few weeks after the procedure but begin to grow quickly and typically fullness is reached 6-9 months later.
