Neograft is a device that facilitates quick and easy extraction of individual hair follicles and follicular units. This is termed Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). Patients often opt for this method of hair transplant because it does not leave a linear scar at the “donor” site on the back of the head like traditional strip harvest hair transplant methods. This allows patients to wear their hair shorter on the back and sides of the head than they would otherwise be able to with the traditional strip harvest. Neograft also does not involve any sutures, which have to stay in place for 10-14 days and require removal post-operatively with strip harvest techniques.
The Neograft procedure is typically performed with some oral sedation and local anesthesia, which allows for a quick recovery. Patients can go home the same day and post-operatively, they will follow up with Dr. Richardson on a regular basis to ensure that the transplants remain healthy, to assess the growth of the grafts over time, and to maintain as much native hair as possible in order to achieve the optimal result. HairMedica products, PRP treatments, finasteride, and minoxidil are all excellent options to maximize and maintain the results of any hair transplant procedure, including Neograft.
All Neograft hair transplants are performed in our state-of-the-art surgical suite within our center at Texas Facial Aesthetics in Frisco, and an entire session with several thousand grafts can be performed in one day.
