UNDERSTANDING NEOGRAFT®

For most people, having a full and healthy-looking head of hair symbolizes youth, attractiveness and allure both personally and professionally. As such, it is important to know what kinds of effects a hair restoration procedure can have on your daily life and interactions. One main goal of Hair Restoration is that it should be unnoticeable to all but those you tell.

Did you know that about 50 million men and 30 million women suffer from male/female pattern baldness or have thinning hair? Though various treatments are available, many potential patients shy-away from the traditional “strip method” for hair replacement because they may not be good candidates for it, or due to the slow recovery period. Others may not prefer the loss of feeling at the incision site, the tiny linear scar that appears on the back of the head, or the amount of post-operative discomfort involved.

After careful research, Dr. Patt of the Houston Center for Facial Plastic Surgery has chosen to provide the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) treatment method utilizing the NeoGraft® Automated Hair Transplantation system. The FUE hair transplantation technique removes individual hair follicles from your scalp in their naturally occurring groupings of about 1-4 hairs, and then places them in areas of the scalp where balding has occurred.
