Neograft is the newest technology to come on the scene for hair transplant surgeons who perform minimally-invasive surgery. This new machine, called Neograft, promises to allow the tediously-slow and meticulously labor-intensive process of harvesting hair without a scalpel (called Follicular Unit Extraction or "FUE") to be peformed much more quickly and efficiently. This is good news for FUE surgeons and patients alike. FUE is generally considered a much more costly procedure than traditional hair transplant techniques in terms of time and resources.
For those not familiar with FUE hair transplants, Follicular-Unit Extraction allows the harvesting of individual follicular units (1, 2 or 3 follicles) without a scalpel or stitches and without a linear scar in the back of the scalp. FUE procedures, though they make literally hundreds of tiny incisions in the scalp, the recovery is comfortable and short, with little activity restriction post-operatively. The main benefit of FUE, however, is that the patient can comfortably buzz his hair quite short once the healing is completed without the traditional linear scar.
Neograft is a device which enables a surgeon and his skilled technicians to harvest individual follicular units of hair quickly, simulaneously cutting the previously anesthetised skin and literally 'sucking' the follicle out of the scalp and into a holding container.
