Hair loss can be an unfortunate fact of life for both men and women. In the past, not much could be done about it. Luckily, there are many more options available, thanks to advances in medicine and science. One of the amazing procedures that has been developed is NeoGraft®, a type of Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) hair transplant. This allows hair transplants to be both quicker and more accurate than methods of the past.
How Does NeoGraft® Work?
When getting the NeoGraft® transplant done, here is what you can expect from the process:
- Removing the Donor Hair: The donor in this type of transplant is you. Hair will be extracted from your own head, giving it a much higher chance of being successfully implanted. Once removed, this hair is prepared to be transplanted.
- Preparing the Recipient Area(s): A plan is made up to determine exactly where the grafts should be placed. Your grafts will be implanted in the recipient area(s) in a way that looks natural, so special consideration is given to the angle, orientation, and direction at which they will be placed.
- Implanting the Hair Grafts: The thinner areas will now receive their implants. Already separated by size, these grafts are implanted one at a time to make sure you see the best results possible.
Who is a Good Candidate for NeoGraft®?
Both men and women can reap the benefits of NeoGraft® hair transplants. The ideal candidate has both a significant amount of hair loss and enough remaining hair to donate. The more donor hair available to use, the fuller your results can be. A good candidate will have reasonable expectations as well.
