NeoGraft 101: A Guide By Dr. Ferrari | January 13, 2023 | Premier Plastic Surgery Center

What causes hair loss?

Hair loss is a common challenge for both men and women. Several factors, such as genetics, aging, hormones, certain medications, stress, diet, and lifestyle can cause it. However, with a competent hair doctor, you can do something to address it.

Common Reasons for Hair Loss in Men

It's a misconception that only women struggle with hormone imbalances. Men can also experience hormonal imbalances that can cause hair loss. In men, the leading causes of hair loss are:

  • Genetics: Male Pattern Baldness is a common genetic disorder in which hair follicles at the top and front of the head miniaturize and eventually stop producing new hairs.
  • Hormones: Changes in hormone levels can cause hair follicles to become dormant and stop producing new hairs.
  • Stress: Both mental and physical stress can lead to hair thinning or loss.
  • Certain medications: Drugs that can cause hair loss treat many common issues, from acne, high blood pressure, cancer, depression, high cholesterol, Parkinson’s disease, and more.

Common Reasons for Hair Loss in Women

In addition to genetics and hormones, there are a few other common causes of hair loss in women:

  • Aging: As women age, their hair follicles may become dormant. This can cause thinning or loss of hair.
  • Anxiety: Stress levels in women can lead to sudden shedding and telogen effluvium, a type of temporary hair loss.
  • Alopecia areata: An autoimmune disorder that attacks the hair follicles, causing them to become dormant and stop growing.
  • Certain medications: Drugs that can cause hair loss treat many common issues, from acne, high blood pressure, cancer, depression, high cholesterol, Parkinson’s disease, and more.

What is NeoGraft?

NeoGraft is a minimally-invasive hair transplantation technique that can restore hair follicles and bring back a natural-looking, full head of hair. It uses the latest advancement in Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) technology to harvest follicles from donor areas and implant them into areas affected by thinning or balding. The procedure is typically done in an outpatient setting and requires no stitches or scalpels.

NeoGraft takes the guesswork out of hair transplantation by creating a natural-looking, full head of hair with minimal downtime and scarring. During the procedure, our highly trained technicians harvest individual follicular units from the donor area, separate them into individual grafts and then implant them into the recipient areas to create a fuller look. The procedure typically takes approximately eight hours.

How does NeoGraft compare to traditional hair restoration methods?

NeoGraft offers many advantages over traditional hair transplantation techniques such as FUT (follicular unit transplantation) or strip harvesting. It's much less invasive, leaves no linear scarring, and can be completed in a shorter amount of time. After the procedure, patients typically experience minimal downtime and can usually return to regular activities within a few days. With NeoGraft hair transplantation, you don't have to sacrifice your natural-looking results for fast recovery times.

Benefits of NeoGraft:

  • Minimally-invasive
  • No linear scarring
  • Shorter procedure times
  • Faster recovery
  • Natural-looking results
  • Less risk of complications and infection.

NeoGraft is one of the most advanced hair restoration techniques available today, providing patients with a safe, effective, and natural-looking solution to hair loss.

Is NeoGraft permanent?

Yes, NeoGraft is a permanent solution for hair restoration. The procedure involves removing follicles from the donor area and implanting them into the affected areas. The transplanted hairs have their blood supply and should last for an indefinite amount of time once implanted. However, it's important to note that results will vary from person to person.

If you are looking for a long-term solution to hair loss, NeoGraft is an excellent choice. The results should last a lifetime with proper care and maintenance. However, it's still important to keep in mind that some factors, such as age, medications, stress levels, and hormones, can affect the longevity of your results.

When will my NeoGraft results appear?

Most patients will begin to see results from their NeoGraft procedure within two to three months after the procedure. During this time, transplanted hairs may shed, and new growth may be visible as early as eight weeks post-treatment.

After approximately four months, most newly implanted hair should be fully grown, and you should start seeing a fuller, more natural-looking result.

Am I a candidate for NeoGraft?

NeoGraft is ideal for those with mild to moderate hair loss, such as male and female pattern baldness. Many people are candidates, and a few basic criteria apply, such as:

  • Being in good health
  • A non-smoker
  • Significant hair loss

Some people who may not be a good candidate for NeoGraft include those with advanced hair loss, scalp diseases, or underlying medical conditions.
