Hair Transplant Advances: Minimally Invasive NeoGraft FUE - FAQ’s
What is NeoGraft FUE Hair Transplant?
NeoGraft FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) is a minimally invasive approach to hair restoration that no longer requires the removal of a linear ‘strip’ of scalp. Individual groups of follicles as small as a single hair are comfortably harvested and permanently redistributed into thinning areas. A combination of surgical skill and artistry delivers a 100% natural hair transplant result that is never ‘pluggy’ and never obvious because there's no linear scar to hide. Downtime is so comfortable and quick that you can return to most athletic activities in just three days. Dr. Alan J. Bauman has been performing FUE since 2001 and was the first board-certified hair transplant surgeon to use the NeoGraft routinely for his patients, dating back to 2007. Dr. Bauman is one of the most experienced FUE surgeons in the world and has offered no-scalpel, no-stitch FUE to his patients for over a decade.
Do I need to shave my head for NeoGraft FUE?
No. For small sessions of transplantation, the harvested area can easily be hidden under your existing length of hair in the back of the scalp. However, if you want the maximum number of grafts transplanted per session, a larger area would be shaved.
Will someone know I had the procedure done?
No. If you have the ability to wear a hat other headwear or stay out of sight for about a week, you can keep the procedure a complete secret. Cosmetic recovery takes approximately one week for the vast majority of patients.
Is NeoGraft FUE available for men and women?
Yes. Both men and women can enjoy the benefits of the less invasive NeoGraft FUE hair transplant procedure. See male results and female results.
Can NeoGraft FUE be used for eyebrows and Body Hair Transplantation?
Yes. In most cases, eyebrow transplants can be performed using the less-invasive NeoGraft FUE approach. NeoGraft FUE can also be used to harvest beard and other body hair in cases where the supply of scalp donor hair is limited.
