NeoGraft is a minimally invasive, outpatient, hair restoration procedure. Select donor follicles are extracted from thick locations on the scalp, commonly located at the back of the head. These follicles are prepared into hair grafts and then transplanted to more desirable, thinning locations. Ideal candidates for New York hair restoration may have thinning hair at the hairline or crown but will have thicker hair at the back of the head to use as donor follicles. Although results take approximately 3 months to become noticeable, once fully grown, your thinning hair will be thicker and your receding hairline will be shapelier than you’ve enjoyed in years.
Our AAAASF accredited in-office surgical suite is fully equipped to provide you with a safe, convenient, and private location for your NeoGraft treatment. During your procedure, our friendly and experienced hair restoration specialist will extract donor follicles using pneumatic pressure, or suction. Using pneumatic pressure to extract donor follicles is the safest method of extraction to ensure follicle survival. The entire hair restoration, from extraction to implantation, can take as little as 3 hours, and you’ll remain awake throughout the procedure. Since only local anesthetic is required, you can enjoy a favorite television program, book, or catch up on work while receiving NeoGraft.
Throughout the entire hair restoration process—from follicle extraction and preparation, to implantation—our specialists utilize NeoGraft’s “hands free” technique. This means that hands never actually touch, handle, or prepare the follicles or hair grafts. Handling the follicles and grafts can potentially damage the graft, and damaged grafts may not grow hair after implantation. Additionally, NeoGraft harbors the follicles in a moist environment where they may thrive during graft preparation. Unlike traditional hair restoration procedures, scalpels, forceps, and microscopes are not used to prepare the grafts. This “hands free” technique increases the chance of follicle survival to 93-95% and ensures the highest possible growth after treatment. This means that more transplanted grafts will grow hair compared to traditional hair restoration treatments, producing thicker hair volume and density when hair grafts have fully grown.
Follicles are implanted using the same method in which they were extracted, reverse pneumatic pressure. Grafts can be implanted on the crown of the head to increase hair density and volume or at the forehead to shape a receding hairline. The placement of hairline follicles is a careful process which requires precision and a deft eye. Misplaced hairline follicles are noticeable and can potentially affect the appearance of your facial contours. Our New York hair restoration technicians are specially trained to ensure the precise placement of hair grafts, and NeoGraft’s “hands free” technique also increases the potential for placement accuracy.
