Hair loss affects 35million men in the U.S. and 21 million women. Hair grafting of your own hair for hairline and thinning hair restoration has become one of the fastest growing esthetic procedures. Whereas traditional hair transplant methods have relied upon “strip harvesting,” which is a technique that removes large strips of hair from a donor site (such as the back of the head) and often results in scarring, advanced techniques have now emerged which offer improved results. With the recent acquisition of the NeoGraft® System, Dr. Pinsky and our grafting team can now perform hair transplants without incisions, removing large strips of hair, or permanent donor site scarring. For men or women with thinning hair or pattern baldness, NeoGraft® can potentially restore a natural-looking, thick, full head of hair.
Dr. Pinsky’s expertise in hair growth patterns creates a natural hairline and hair growth direction. This expertise means patients have more flexibility in how they choose to style and cut their hair because it appears natural from any angle. Additionally, the 95-98% graft “take-rate” with NeoGraft® creates exceptional value compared to 50-60% “take-rates” with the older strip method.
At Pinsky Plastic Surgery, we combine NeoGraft® with the Visualizer system, allowing patients to see a preview of their transplanted hair. NeoGraft® also provides the best results with curly, gray, and ethnic hair types.
When evaluating hair grafting, it’s important to compare techniques. The NeoGraft® method is a technique called Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), which allows the surgeon to move just one, two, three, or four individual hair follicles at a time. This level of precision allows for the creation of a very soft and natural hairline, avoiding the “punched” look of older grafting methods.
Among cosmetic procedures, hair grafting is one of the fastest growing and has some of the highest satisfaction ratings. You might say it’s “head and shoulders above the rest”!
