Restore Thinning Hair With A Neograft® Hair Transplant
If you’re struggling with thinning hair, you’re not alone. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, approximately 40 percent of women will experience noticeable hair loss by the time they turn 40.
When we think of hair loss, we usually associate it with men, however, women are just as susceptible to hair loss. And while there are many potential causes of hair loss in women, from stress and poor nutrition to underlying medical conditions, the most common cause is genetics.
If your mother or grandmother experienced hair loss, you’re more likely to experience it yourself. Fortunately, there are now several effective treatment options available for women suffering from genetic hair loss. One of the most popular and effective treatments is a NeoGraft hair transplant.
What Is A Neograft Hair Transplant?
A NeoGraft hair transplant is a minimally invasive hair restoration procedure that uses the latest technology to harvest and transplant hair follicles from one area of the scalp to another.
During the procedure, a small section of hair-bearing skin is removed from the back or sides of the head, an area known as the donor site.
Next, the harvested hair follicles are transplanted to the balding or thinning areas of the scalp, known as the recipient site. The transplanted hair follicles will eventually begin to grow new hair in the recipient site.
One of the biggest advantages of NeoGraft hair transplants is that they can be performed using local anesthesia, which means there is no need for general anesthesia or sedation. This significantly reduces the risks associated with the procedure.
NeoGraft hair transplants are also much less invasive than traditional hair transplant procedures, and they offer a shorter recovery time.
Most people who undergo NeoGraft hair transplants are able to return to their normal activities within a few days.
Are Neograft Hair Transplants Effective?
NeoGraft hair transplants are highly effective. Once the transplanted hair follicles have taken root in the recipient site, they will continue to grow new hair.
The results of NeoGraft hair transplants are also very natural-looking. Because the transplanted hair follicles are harvested from your own head, they will match your existing hair in color and texture.
If you’re considering a NeoGraft hair transplant, it’s important to consult with an experienced hair restoration specialist.
A qualified specialist will be able to assess your individual needs and recommend the best treatment option for you.
Here’s a video showing the process of a Neograft hair transplant:
How Much Does A Neograft Hair Transplant Cost?
The cost of a NeoGraft hair transplant will vary depending on the number of grafts you need and the size of the treatment area. However, on average, NeoGraft hair transplants cost between $9,000 and $15,000.
Most insurance plans do not cover the cost of hair transplants because they are considered cosmetic procedures. However, some flex spending and health savings accounts may cover part or all of the cost of a NeoGraft hair transplant.
What Is The Recovery Time For A Neograft Hair Transplant?
The recovery time for a NeoGraft hair transplant is typically shorter than the recovery time for traditional hair transplants. Most people are able to return to their normal activities within a few days.
During the first week after your NeoGraft hair transplant, you may experience some redness, swelling, and tenderness in the treatment area.
You may also have some crusting on your scalp. These side effects are normal and will resolve on their own within a week or two.
You should avoid strenuous activity during the first week after your NeoGraft hair transplant. You should also avoid exposing your head to direct sunlight.
After the first week, you can gradually resume your normal activities. However, it’s important to take care of your transplanted hair follicles during the recovery process.
Avoid styling your hair in tight ponytails or braids. And be sure to use gentle shampoo and conditioner when washing your hair.
If you have any questions about the recovery process, don’t hesitate to ask your hair restoration specialist. They will be able to give you specific instructions on how to care for your transplanted hair follicles.
When Will I See The Results From My Neograft Hair Transplant?
It typically takes several months for the transplanted hair follicles to fully recover and start growing new hair. Most people see noticeable results within four to six months.
However, it can take up to a year for the full results of a NeoGraft hair transplant to be visible. Once your transplanted hair follicles have fully healed, you will enjoy long-lasting, natural-looking results.
Neograft Hair Transplant Vs. FUE
NeoGraft and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) are two of the most popular hair transplant procedures available today. Both procedures are minimally invasive and can produce natural-looking results.
However, there are some key differences between NeoGraft and FUE. NeoGraft is an automated hair transplant procedure that uses a machine to harvest donor hair follicles.
FUE is a manual hair transplant procedure that requires the surgeon to carefully extract each donor hair follicle by hand.
NeoGraft is generally faster than FUE because it doesn’t require the surgeon to individually extract each donor hair follicle. NeoGraft is also less invasive than FUE because there is no need to make a large incision in the scalp.
However, FUE may be a better option for people who have very little donor hair available. This is because NeoGraft requires a larger number of donor hair follicles than FUE.
Pros And Cons
NeoGraft is a minimally invasive hair transplantation procedure that can be an excellent option for those seeking to restore their hair.
However, as with any medical procedure, there are both potential benefits and risks associated with NeoGraft that should be considered before undergoing treatment.
Some of the potential benefits of NeoGraft® include:
- Minimally invasive – Since NeoGraft uses small needles to harvest hair follicles from the donor site, it is much less invasive than traditional hair transplant procedures. This can result in faster healing times and reduced discomfort.
- Natural-looking results – One of the biggest benefits of NeoGraft is that it can produce very natural-looking results.
- This is because the hair follicles are transplanted into their natural groupings, which allows them to retain their natural growth patterns.
- No linear scar – Another benefit of NeoGraft is that it does not leave a linear scar at the donor site as traditional hair transplant procedures can. This is because the small needles used to harvest the hair follicles do not cut through the skin.
- Fast recovery time – Since NeoGraft is a minimally invasive procedure, patients typically experience a shorter recovery time than with traditional hair transplant procedures. Most patients are able to return to work and other normal activities within a few days of treatment.
- Safe and effective – NeoGraft has been shown to be a safe and effective treatment option for hair loss. In most cases, patients experience little to no side effects and are able to achieve their desired results.
Some of the potential risks associated with NeoGraft include:
- Infection – As with any surgical procedure, there is always a risk of infection at the incision site. However, this risk is typically very low with NeoGraft due to the small size of the needles used.
- Bleeding – There is also a small risk of bleeding associated with NeoGraft, although this is usually minimal and does not require any additional treatment.
- Scarring – Although rare, some patients may experience scarring at the donor site. This is usually minor and will eventually fade over time.
- Numbness – In some cases, patients may experience temporary numbness at the donor site. This is typically due to the numbing medication used during the procedure and will resolve on its own within a few days.
- Swelling – Some patients may also experience temporary swelling at the donor site. This is usually minimal and will resolve on its own within a few days.
If you are considering NeoGraft for hair loss, it is important to talk to your doctor about the potential risks and benefits of the procedure. They can help you decide if NeoGraft is right for you based on your individual medical history and goals.
Safety Tips After Neograft Hair Transplant
After a NeoGraft hair transplant, it is important to take care of your new grafts to ensure they heal properly and grow thick and healthy.
Here are some tips to follow in the days and weeks after your procedure:
- Sleep with your head elevated for the first few nights, using extra pillows or sleeping in a recliner chair. This will help reduce swelling and promote healing.
- Avoid vigorous activity or exercise for at least a week, as this can also lead to swelling and delay healing.
- Keep your head clean by shampooing gently every day with a mild shampoo. You can also use a gentle cleanser on your face to avoid irritating the skin around your transplanted area.
- Apply ice packs to your head for 20 minutes at a time several times a day for the first few days after surgery, as this will help reduce swelling.
- Be sure to follow all of your doctor’s instructions for care and take any prescribed medications as directed.
With proper care and attention, you can expect to see new hair growth in the transplanted area within a few months.
A NeoGraft hair transplant can help you get your hair back and give you the confidence to show your face to the world again.
If you are considering this treatment, be sure to ask your doctor about how long the results will last. In most cases, a NeoGraft hair transplant can provide you with results that last.
However, it is important to keep in mind that individual results may vary. Be sure to discuss your expectations with your doctor before undergoing treatment.
