Men's Hair Replacement

The NeoGraft difference is clear..

There are three questions you should ask yourself before reading on:

  • Am I willing to have a large scar across the back of my scalp regardless of the procedures success rate?

  • Am I able to handle the difficult surgery, surgical recovery, and downtime associated with the current leading hair restoration procedures?

  • Am I able to handle the long term discomfort associated with removing a 1" -  2" strip of my scalp caused by the stretching required to close the donor site?

If you you've answered "No" to the questions above like all of our other patients both male and female alike, then we feel it is well worth you time to learn a bit more about your options. We are not a one size fits all hair restoration clinic, and we only offer a single surgical pain free - no stitch - no scar option for hair restoration. We are one of the leading cosmetic surgery practices in the United States, and we've created what we strongly feel is the ultimate experience in hair restoration. The procedure we offer uses a device with a small needle that is inserted into the scalp around a single hair follicle, and then removes it with light suction. The hair is then implanted back into the scalp with a single needle, leaving a pain free natural looking result without any visible signs of the procedure in less than a week.

The next generation of micro hair grafting

Individual results from procedures cannot be guaranteed, and may vary between patients.

We have built a highly qualified team, which includes a plastic surgeon, a physicians assistant and two of the countries leading hair transplant technicians. Our state of the art system allows our team to automate the surgical removal, collection, and placement of individual hair follicles, one at a time, eliminating the need to remove a large strip of skin from the back of the scalp. The system is so precise it is capable of removing targeting individual follicles, which are harvested intact and are then implanted beck into individual follicles that have been lost.

We offer our male and female patients a no-scalpel/no-stitch option for FUE hair transplants, with the ability to return to work the next day. The NeoGraft allows us to preform an extremely effective micro 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.

The procedure is completed in a single day, and an evening in our recovery suites is even included with our procedures for out of town guests.

How much does hair transplant surgery cost?

As a dominant leader in NeoGraft procedures, we are able to offer our patients the ultimate experience in male or female hair replacement surgery at an unparalleled value. We have exclusive relationships with some of the leading hair graft technicians in the United States, and we pride ourselves on putting patient results first. Because of this we have a "per area" pricing system, which is not based upon hair count. As a result our patients get the best result we can offer, rather than the best result they can afford.

How many hairs will I need to have replaced?

Everyone is different, and we've done as many as 4,000 in a single day. However, 2,000 hairs covers the equivalent surface of an entire DVD Disc. If you are experiencing early stage hair loss, you would obviously require far fewer transplants.

 

Hair loss history and science

Hair restoration surgery dates back to the 1930’s when a Japanese dermatologist used a punch technique to extract round sections of hair, which were implanted into slightly smaller holes.

This procedure was performed for cosmetic coverage of burns and scars. Several years later a New York Dermatologist would perform the first known hair transplant in the U.S. In the early 90’s surgical hair restoration finally began producing a more natural result, and today many robots and machines are assisting the surgeon in producing optimal outcomes with no scarring, incisions, and minimal recovery time.

Individual results from procedures cannot be guaranteed, and may vary between patients.

Male pattern baldness is also known as androgenic alopecia, which has been linked to DHT (Dihydrotestosterone) a male sex hormone which directly affects hair follicular. Many leading experts suggest that 90-95% of male pattern baldness is due to effects of DHT. The amount of DHT often depends on the genetic make-up of the individual. In hair restoration the DHT resistant follicles are removed from the back of the scalp and transplanted to thinning areas. There are other forms of hair loss, which have been attributed to autoimmune diseases, infectious agents, drugs, burns, or scars.

How do I know IF I’m a good candidate?

Candidates for hair restoration surgery are those individuals in good health with moderate hair loss and sufficient donor hair on the back of the scalp to transplant into the balding areas. Those with more donor hair, greater hair density and fullness can typically expect fuller results. It is also important that you have reasonable cosmetic goals. Hair transplantation can achieve very good, natural results but cannot restore your hair to the density you had as a teenager.

In an effort to serve our patients that are not the right fit for this procedure due to financial concerns or poor candidacy we have partnered with EZIO one of the country’s best known wig and toupee makers, and laser hair replacement therapy as well as hair replacement products are available right next door.

Follicular unit extraction (FUE):

The FUE method or micro graft method removes individual hair follicles from the scalp in their naturally occurring groupings of about 1 - 4 hairs, and the hairs are then further dissected into individual follicles and are then placed in the areas of the scalp where balding has occurred. One of the keys to natural looking hair is to minimize trauma to the scalp and the hair follicles. While this is a great option for patients, our commitment to being the best at what we do has brought us into the next generation of hair replacement. This method is so precise it can restore hair, eyebrows, and even individual eyelashes.

How is NeoGraft performed?

Hair transplantation is a process in which hair is taken from the back of the head or donor area and replaced in areas where hair loss has occurred. The NeoGraft system uses a special technology that is able to quickly remove the hair follicles from the donor area and implant them to balding areas. 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 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.

Individual results from procedures cannot be guaranteed, and may vary between patients.

How soon will I see results?

The science behind grafting is quite simple. Hair follicles are taken from the hair at the back or side 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 the hair last?

Transplanted hair taken from the sides and back of your head in safe areas should continue to grow the rest of your life just like it did in the donor area. Men can begin to develop signs of male pattern baldness in their twenties and hair loss can begin at any time in their adult lives. For women, hair loss is usually more of a thinning or diffuse pattern and often appears as they reach the age of 55-60.

Hair loss does not stop after a transplantation, some people will need continuing maintenance either with preventative hair loss drugs and/or further hair restoration sessions, 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 consultation.
