Surgical Hair Transplant
Hair restoration is one of the top five most popular cosmetic procedures among men in the United States, though treatment is available for female patients as well.
There are many causes of hair loss including genetics, aging, hormones, stress, and poor nutrition. The loss of hair can cause one to feel self-conscious and take away from a youthful appearance. Treatments for hair loss vary and their application depends on the severity of the hair loss and the desired outcome. For those seeking long-lasting results hair restoration can help you feel better about how you look and offer you a more youthful appearance.
There are several types of surgical hair restoration procedures available. When moderate results are needed techniques such as punch grafts, mini-grafts, micro-grafts, slit grafts, and strip grafts are used. For a more dramatic results flaps, tissue-expansion and scalp-reduction are often the favored techniques. A new and popular procedure is micro-hair transplantation. With micro-hair transplantation surgeons transplant individual hair follicles, which tends to create a more natural looking head of hair. Sometimes several techniques are used for one patient in order to achieve the best results. Sufficient donor hair sites are needed for the best results and multiple treatment sessions may be needed over the course of a year or two.
The NeoGraft Hair Replacement procedure is the lastest in hair restoration treatment. With a “F.U.E” or follicular-unit extraction process, NeoGraft uses a small punch device to loosen a follicle from the surrounding tissues. The follicle units are then manually placed into tiny incisions in the balding area. Because the NeoGraft device is automated and works like a natural extension of the surgeon’s hand, the accuracy and speed of harvesting hair follicles is dramatically improved. With NeoGraft there is minimal discomfort during and following the procedure, no scarring and minimal downtime. Once healing is complete, the patient has the option of wearing a very short haircut. NeoGraft has been used for the last decade in Europe and Asia, and in late 2008 was cleared for use in the United States by the FDA.
