What is Neograft?

Neograft hair transplant is the most exciting and advanced technique of harvesting or extracting hair follicles from one area, (the donor site) without stitches or scalpel invasion and does not leave the client with a linear scar. Neograft is the advanced method of Follicular Unit Extraction (F.U.E) that was manually conducted to harvest hair grafts. Neograft is the most leading and satisfying hair transplantation technique. Neograft is best used on an individuals who come from the lineage of genetic hair loss. Neograft technique if used during FUE, improves accuracy and time consumed during the process. It also produces excellent results.

How is Neograft Performed?

Neograft system uses latest equipments to harvest complete hair follicles from a candidate. Each hair follicle is harvested carefully and one at a time. The hair follicles are then transplanted to the balding areas of the scalp. Neograft provides 97% survival rate of the harvested hair grafts. During Neograft, no micro-needles or razors are used and hence no stitches or scars are left on the donor site. Till the grafts are transplanted to the bald scalp, they remain sealed in a container where they are misted to keep them moist for the operation. Once they are ready, the surgeon uses pneumatic pressure to insert the follicles smoothly to the bald scalp. This method enables the surgeon to harvest over 1500 grafts in a single day.

Who can be the best candidate?

Neograft technique is used on both genders, male and female. Patients with more hair at the donor site can typically get the presumed hair style. With Neograft method, an individual needs to consider;

  • The amount of hair follicles needed to refill the bald scalp area.
  • The desired hair style of the client whether long or short.
  • The length of hair at the back scalp or the donor site of an individual.
  • The health of the candidate, a client should not be on medications.

Apparently it is always advisable to be open and honest with the surgeon about the health history of an individual.

Results after Neograft

Hair follicles that are harvested and transplanted to the bald scalp contain living tissues that enable the grafts to hold at the recipient site for around two to three weeks before they start falling and shedding off. Shedding-off of the grafts does not mean that the procedure has failed; it is normal and after about three to four months, the hair will grow normally. It will also gain its normal length after a few months of the surgery. The donor zone mostly is covered by the lengthy hair of an individual and within seven days after the graft harvesting, the hair starts growing normally.
