Everything You Need to Know About Getting a NeoGraft Hair Transplant
Roughly 30 million women and 50 million men suffer from androgenetic alopecia in the United States. The risk of developing this condition, also known as female or male pattern baldness, increases with age. However, it can affect virtually anyone, including adolescents. If a full head of hair is important for maintaining your self-confidence, read on to learn about the incredible benefits of a NeoGraft hair transplant offered at our Beverly Hills office.
What Does a NeoGraft Hair Transplant Entail?
A NeoGraft hair transplant entails harvesting hair follicles from a donor area using follicular unit extraction, also known as FUE. One factor that makes this treatment method so beneficial is the hair follicles are not harvested manually. Rather, professionals harvest the hair follicles with a specialized tool. This means the treatment is much more efficient than similar techniques.
How Long Does the Procedure Take?
This procedure can take anywhere from four to six hours to complete. How long your procedure will take depends on how much hair restoration needs to be completed. We can give you a better idea of what to expect regarding how long your procedure will take once you have been evaluated during your initial consultation. However, we recommend clearing your schedule for the entire day of your NeoGraft hair transplant so you don’t feel stressed about being on time for an appointment later in the day.
Will This Procedure Hurt?
Besides being incredibly efficient, this procedure is completely pain-free. Before your procedure begins, we will use local anesthesia to numb the donor and recipient areas completely. Depending on your health and the medications you take regularly, we may also provide you with an oral sedative and oral analgesic. This procedure is so comfortable many patients fall asleep as it is being performed.
Why Do People Get NeoGraft Hair Transplants?
This Hair Restoration Method Doesn’t Leave Scars
One of the reasons people turn to this state-of-the-art hair restoration technique is no visible scars result from the procedure. Other hair transplant methods leave behind linear scars that never fade completely. If you want to discreetly improve the volume and thickness of your hair, this is the hair restoration method for you.
This Hair Restoration Method Requires Little Recovery Time
Another incredible advantage of this hair restoration technique is the recovery is a lot faster than other hair transplant methods. The length of your recovery period depends on several factors, including the areas being treated and the scope of the procedure. Typically, you can expect to be back at work two days after your procedure. That said, you should avoid vigorous exercise for two weeks post-op regardless of whether the hair on your scalp, eyebrows, or face is restored.
Restrictions During Your Recovery Process
As noted above, you may want to take a couple of days off from work after your procedure to rest. That said, you are free to return to work once you are feeling up to it if you have a sedentary job. There are also a couple of other restrictions during your recovery process, but they will not affect your quality of life significantly.
For example, you should not wash your scalp within 24 hours of your NeoGraft hair transplant procedure. During your initial consultation, we will advise you on how to care for your scalp in the days following your transplant. Additionally, you should refrain from wearing hats for several days post-transplant.
This Hair Restoration Method Provides Natural-Looking Results
Yet another benefit of this hair restoration method is the results of treatment look completely natural. During this procedure, professionals graft hairs from parts of your scalp with plenty of hair. Your results will look natural because the transplanted hairs are your hairs. Additionally, since there is no risk of linear scarring, nobody will be able to tell you received hair restoration.
This Hair Restoration Method Doesn’t Damage Your Hair Follicles
Another advantageous aspect of a NeoGraft hair transplant is more of your hair follicles survive the transplant process. Traditional FUE and FUT (follicular unit transplantation) techniques damage many of the hair follicles harvested during the procedure. This results in a low survival rate of transplanted hairs and results that are less than ideal.
