The NeoGraft Automated Minimally Invasive FUE Implantation Procedure is a revolutionary hair restoration system that eliminates the need for traditional “strip” method follicular unit transplantation (FUT). Using the innovative NeoGraft handpiece, this system enables hair surgeons to extract hair follicles directly from the donor site and implant them into the receiving area.
Many patients choose the NeoGraft FUE method for its short recovery time compared with the strip method. Because the incisions are so small compared to other methods, they heal relatively fast. Although you should expect them to be visible for up to a week and may want to cover your head until the swelling and redness recede, from a medical standpoint you are typically back to normal after one or two days. If you’re active in sports or other activities, then you’ll appreciate the short recovery time because it allows you to get back to your life as soon as possible.
Both FUE and FUT hair restoration methods have been proven safe for most patients, but there are certain advantages to the NeoGraft system. There’s no need for intensive surgery, and the recovery time is significantly shorter. The minimal scarring from where the hair follicles are extracted heals quickly and can be camouflaged much more easily than a linear incision.
Ideal candidates for hair restoration with NeoGraft need to be in relatively good health with a healthy supply of hair in the donor area, which is typically the back of the scalp. If you meet these qualifications, then you’re most likely a candidate for NeoGraft hair restoration.
Like all medical procedures, hair restoration takes time to heal and achieve its full effect. Individual results will vary, but some patients have reported noticeable differences within three months of treatment. By six months, you should notice significant improvement. Within a year, most patients enjoy the full results of the NeoGraft hair restoration procedure. Your transplanted hair follicles should also start growing at a normal rate within a year.
Your procedure’s cost will depend on the number of individual grafts you receive. While each session will vary, it’s not uncommon for a session to produce as many as 2,500 hair follicles or grafts. Additionally, each of the grafts can be made up of several hairs—an important distinction to consider when comparing prices.
Nationally, the average cost of NeoGraft ranges from $5 to $9 per graft. At NuBody Concepts (The Hair Doctor), we offer much lower prices than the national average. We are confident that our prices are the most competitive, no matter how many hair follicles the procedure entails.
