A full, thick head of hair is often associated with youth and vitality. Consequently, a receding hairline, thinning hair, and baldness can have a significant impact personal confidence and self-image. Alopecia is the medical term for this common condition, which affects 35 million men in the U.S. and 21 million women. This type of hair loss is most often caused by hormonal changes and genetics. There are many creams, shampoos, and topical treatments available to combat hair loss and even regrow hair; however, these methods cannot deliver the kind of results possible with hair transplant techniques. Our board-certified plastic surgeons offer one of the newest and most innovative hair transplant methods with the NeoGraft® Automated Hair Transplant System. This effective, minimally invasive technique can create natural-looking results with no residual scarring at the extraction site.
Hair loss can occur for a variety of reasons. Fortunately, NeoGraft® can be used to treat most varieties of hair loss. If you have thinning hair or areas of baldness, your physician will discuss your personal and family history during a one-on-one consultation to determine if you are a good candidate for NeoGraft®. As part of the consult, we will conduct a physical examination of your scalp, carefully review your medical history, and discuss your treatment expectations – even looking at photos of your hairline prior to the start of your hair loss. Your doctor may discuss hair density options based on your goals, your donor site thickness, and your hair loss pattern and history. If NeoGraft® hair grafting is right for you, our Patient Care Coordinator will provide a Quote and allow you to choose from some available dates to suit your schedule. We also offer financing through CareCredit® and Alphaeon® Credit.
Since the NeoGraft® technique transfers only one to three hair follicles at a time, there is little to no associated scarring or downtime. Although mild swelling or bruising may occur at both the donor site and the treatment area, these side effects typically dissipate within a few days of the procedure. Some patients may see small red dots at the donor site, though these marks should fade within one to two weeks. Most patients have no visible signs of the procedure after their recovery is complete. The transplanted hair follicles usually shed after two to three weeks, just like any natural hair follicle. Once new hair growth begins again, your hair should continue to grow and shed in normal cycles, ultimately giving you a thicker, fuller head of your own natural hair.
If you are considering hair restoration, we encourage you to contact our practice to schedule a consultation with one of our surgeons.
