Roughly 1 in 5 Americans experience hair loss with men representing a larger percentage of this statistic. Those who once had a full head of hair may slowly begin to lose their hair and become self-conscious about their changing hairline, the development of bald spots or the overall change of appearance due to hair loss. Our plastic surgeon in the Chicago Loop has the tools and technology necessary to help you improve your confidence.
How NeoGraft Can Help
NeoGraft is a revolutionary hair restoration program that is designed to facilitate the harvesting of hair follicles during a Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) hair transplant. If you aren’t familiar with FUE hair transplants, it is a minimally invasive hair transplant method that harvests individual follicles without utilizing a scalpel incision, ultimately leaving no scar.
This process utilizes pneumatic pressure to slide the graft out smoothly and comfortably, as there is no twisting or pulling that could ultimately lead to damaging the graft. Your grafts can be re-implanted sooner which allows for a more natural-looking hairline.
Who Is a Candidate?
If you’re comfortable with a short haircut on the back and side of your scalp or if you are hoping to find a hair transplant procedure that allows for activity following the procedure, you are a good candidate for NeoGraft. Candidates must be in good health and be experiencing moderate hair loss in addition to having a sufficient amount of donor hair and overall hair density. Both men and women are candidates for this procedure.
How Long Does the Hair Last?
Keep in mind that receiving a hair transplant will not prevent further hair loss and continued maintenance will likely be required. Additional transplants may be necessary in the future, and this is something that you can discuss with our plastic surgeons at Northwestern Specialists in Plastic Surgery and Med Spa.
