What Is NeoGraft?
NeoGraft® is a simple procedure that is minimally invasive with little chance of complications, minimal discomfort, quick recovery, and most important, no linear scar as seen with the strip technique of harvesting hair. Using NeoGraft®, Dr. Brown is able to extract around five hundred follicular units per hour, easily enabling a transplant of several thousand follicular units. Each unit consists of 1-5 hairs as it naturally grows on you head. Prior to NeoGraft®, only several hundred units could be extracted per hour using a manual technique.
The NeoGraft® Procedure
The procedure begins with Dr. Brown reviewing your goals and designing the new hairline or balding areas with a marker. Dr Brown spends as long as it takes during this design stage to address the patient goals and most importantly, what looks natural and is anatomic in design. Once the design is agreed upon, oral sedation is given for your comfort. The back of the head, or donor site is shaven, and local anesthesia is administered to numb the area using a non-painful solution along with advanced equipment to minimize discomfort. The next several hours are then spent extracting the follicles with the NeoGraft® machine. During this time, patients are relaxed listening to music. Monitoring equipment is available if needed based on the patients health.
Extraction using NeoGraft® is a huge benefit of this technique. Unlike the strip technique there is no use of a scalpel, sutures, or staples. No donor site linear scarring giving patients the ability to wear short hair in the future, no postoperative tightening of the scalp, and very low risk of bleeding or nerve damage along with healing time in the days and not weeks.
After a quick lunch break, the second part of the procedure begins with artistic and precise implantation of the new follicles. This is the most important part of the procedure to assure a natural looking hair restoration. The correct angle of the new sites along with the depth is precisely made using a special implanting device. With the strip procedure, grafts have been slivered or cut from a large strip of scalp to smaller units usually consisting of several follicular units (plugs) to save time. With NeoGraft®, only pristine single grafts are used, constisting from 1-4 hairs which is the follicular unit. This assures a natural look without the plugs. The grafts have a higher survival rate, as there is little handling of the units once extracted by the NeoGraft® machine. They are placed in special cooled solutions, and we can add PRP at this time to the grafts and the recipient sites to improve early growth and survival.
The procedure ends with additional long acting local anesthetics and special anti-inflammatory drugs to minimize or eliminate pain. Post-operative instructions will be reiterated that include care of your new hair, bathing, hats, etc. Follow up is usually in a week. Postoperative care by the patient is the most important variable which will effect the final results. Plan on 12-18 months for full results. Dr. Brown stives for perfection, and to have satisfied patients who have achieved their goals.
