NJ NeoGraft | New Jersey Hair Restoration Surgery
NeoGraft, a new European medical device now available in the U.S., can dramatically improve hair restoration surgery for both male and female patients.
The FDA-approved New Jersey NeoGraft automates the surgical removal, collection, and placement of individual hair follicles, one at a time, eliminating the need for doctors to remove a large strip from the back of the scalp (a procedure known as a linear-harvest Follicular Unit Transplant or STRIP FUT). The targeted removal of individual hair follicles is known as "Follicular-Unit Extraction" or FUE, is a minimally-invasive microsurgical procedure that has been available for several years, but until now has been too time-consuming and costly for many patients. NeoGraft is an exciting new breakthrough for hair loss patients allowing more men and women to take advantage of the benefits of no-scalpel/no-stitch FUE hair transplants," said by one of the doctors who perform hair transplantation with the NeoGraft "FUE has been an extremely effective surgical procedure that allows for the precise, artistic placement of new hair follicles to recreate a full and natural-looking hairline, while reducing recovery time and eliminating the unsightly linear scar associated with traditional hair transplants."
Hair Loss in Men and Women
Over 40 million men suffer from hair loss, 40% of men have noticeable hair loss by age 35 and 65% by age 60. For many men, hair loss is inevitable. It is a hereditary condition that increases with age. These genes may be passed from either the maternal or paternal side. Approximately 21 million women suffer from hair loss, 40% of women have noticeable hair loss by age 40. The reasons for hair loss in women often have to do with heredity. Other reasons include hormonal changes, stress, illness, and poor nutrition.
Benefits of New Jersey NeoGraft
The key benefits of FUE surgery performed with NeoGraft are:
- Least invasive procedure for hair transplantation, patients feel little to no discomfort
- No linear scar or numbness where the donor hair is harvested
- No stitches or staples
- Shorter, more comfortable recovery
- Less activity restrictions after surgery, patients can typically go back to work the next day
- Very short haircuts are possible after surgery
- Transplants roughly twice as many hair grafts as manually performed FUE surgery
- Cuts the cost of manual FUE treatment by as much as half and in some cases reduces the need for additional surgeries
HOW IS NEW JERSEY NEOGRAFT PERFORMED?
NJ hair restoration surgery is a process in which hair is taken from the back of the head and replaced in areas where hair loss has occurred. The NeoGraft device uses a special technology that is able to quickly and painlessly remove the hair follicles from the back of the head and implant them to balding areas. New Jersey NeoGraft uses a controlled pneumatic pressure to slide out the graft smoothly, so there is no pulling or twisting which can risk damaging the graft. Because the NJ NeoGraft transplant is faster than other out of date methods, the grafts can be re-implanted sooner which keeps them more robust, increasing the success of the grafting process.
HOW SOON WILL I SEE RESULTS?
The science behind grafting is quite simple. Hair follicles are taken from the hair at the back of the head that is genetically programmed to continue to grow. The follicles that hold your transplanted hair are living tissues that grow cyclically. Like normal hair growth, transplantation is an ongoing process that requires a commitment of time. Once the hair follicle has been implanted into the balding area, the grafted hair will stay in place for about two to three weeks before shedding. After shedding, the new growth will begin in 3-4 months; this is normal and an important part of the new hair growth process. After that time period, the hair will continue to grow normally; your result will look healthy and natural.
HOW LONG WILL IT LAST?
Most men start to develop male pattern baldness at approximately 40-45 years of age. For women, they may reach the age of 55-60 before their balding pattern manifests. Hair loss does not stop after a transplantation, some people will need continuing maintenance and further sessions will likely be required, particularly if your balding patterns continue with age. Progressive hair loss or the desire for more density may require more transplants. An estimate of balding pattern and the number of procedures needed will be discussed during your NJ consultation.
