Everything You Need to Know About NeoGraft Hair Restoration

  • March 1, 2022

Hair transplant surgery can be transformative for men and women who feel self-conscious due to significant hair loss and want to restore a full, healthy head of hair. But if you’re considering the procedure, you may wonder how the process works, when you will see results, and what to expect.

At Schmidt Facial Plastic Surgery, Dr. Jeffrey Schmidt and his team offer NeoGraft, the most advanced, cutting-edge hair transplant option available today.

What Is a Hair Transplant?

To begin with the basics, let’s break down what a hair transplant entails. If you are picturing the unnatural-looking hair plugs that were common in the 1970s and ‘80s, rest assured the hair transplant industry has improved by leaps and bounds since then. Modern hair transplant methods create permanent results that heal discreetly with little to no noticeable scarring.

The leading surgical technique, follicular unit extraction (FUE), involves a skilled plastic surgeon carefully extracting healthy hair follicles from a donor area and implanting them into the areas of your scalp where the hair is thinning. This surgery aims to restore your hair, while boosting your appearance and self-esteem.

What Is NeoGraft?

NeoGraft further improves on the FUE process by introducing automation for reliably excellent outcomes. The benefits include more precision in graft placement and positioning, with less potential damage to hair follicles. NeoGraft also has a quicker recovery time with fewer activity restrictions.

NeoGraft automates some critical elements of FUE, including hair follicle extraction, storage, and implantation. As a no-touch system, NeoGraft keeps the extracted hair follicles safe, intact, and healthy until they are ready for insertion in their new location. This technology gives the hair follicles the best chance of thriving after removal from the donor area. It can also provide a fuller head of hair with minimal discomfort.

What to Expect After NeoGraft

While FUE with NeoGraft can create remarkable results, it takes time for the transplanted hairs to begin growing. Shortly after your surgery, you will have an idea of what your newly restored hairline will look like. However, do not be alarmed when you see your newly transplanted hairs beginning to fall out about two to three weeks after your surgery.

This phenomenon is a normal and expected part of the healing process, and it doesn’t mean the grafts are dying or failing to take hold. It’s a natural step in the hair-growth lifecycle for old hairs to fall out. While your scalp is shedding the hair shafts themselves, your newly placed follicular units will remain completely undamaged, and new hair shafts should be starting to come in.

We will send you home with detailed instructions about how to care for your scalp after a NeoGraft hair restoration procedure and when you can resume various activities.
