Male Baldness Hair Restoration With NeoGraft® Pittsburgh
When investigating men’s hair restoration procedures to reestablish your natural hairline, there are various options to weigh. Typically, men don’t want to disrupt their active lifestyles more than necessary nor do they want to be left with noticeable scarring from a procedure. Hair loss is a multifactorial issue caused by alopecia, hormonal changes, environmental changes, or just genetics and the normal process of aging. The emotional effects of baldness and thinning hair on men can be damaging both personally and socially. Premier Plastic Surgery & Dermatology can help restore your self-confidence and image. Our Pittsburgh surgeon performs the revolutionary and innovative hair restoration procedure called NeoGraft®. Results have proven desirable with the benefits of no linear scarring, short recovery period, and a more natural appearance.
WHAT IS NEOGRAFT®?
NeoGraft® is a state of the art hair restoration procedure performed at Premier Plastic Surgery & Dermatology by our Pittsburgh surgeon. With recent advances in technology, NeoGraft® has emerged as the gold standard for hair restoration. NeoGraft® is an FDA approved solution for hair loss using follicular unit extraction (FUE) technology. A large number of small, naturally occurring individual follicular units are removed directly from the patient’s donor region by 1-mm punch excisions (Dermatologic Surgery, Europe PMC). The follicular units are implanted into the areas on the patient where hair is thin or no longer present. This procedure leaves no linear scarring, requires minimal downtime, and produces a more natural appearance. These benefits make NeoGraft® a more appealing option than traditional linear harvesting which leaves a scar. (Dermatologic Surgery, Europe PMC, MEDLINE)
WHO ARE CANDIDATES FOR NEOGRAFT®?
Men and women who are looking for a solution to their hair loss using a minimally invasive procedure with a more natural appearance using their own hair, are candidates for NeoGraft®. Ideally, hair loss would have ceased prior to the procedure so that new transplants do not fall out. The best candidates are those whose hair loss is caused by genetics rather than other means.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM THE NEOGRAFT® PROCEDURE?
The NeoGraft® procedure uses the method of follicular unit extraction (FUE), which begins with hair being removed from the donor site on the back of the patient’s head using 1-mm punch excisions. Our Pittsburgh surgeon will create the recipient site on the patient’s head according to the designed plan. The follicular units are separated by size, selected for appropriate placement and transplanted into the balding and thinning areas of the patient’s scalp. Our surgeon at Premier Plastic Surgery & Dermatology ensures that each graft is meticulously harvested as it naturally occurs and is implanted individually. The result is a fuller, healthier, and more natural-looking head of hair. The NeoGraft® method reduces recovery time, quickly gets you back to your lifestyle and restores your image.
WHY SHOULD I CHOOSE NEOGRAFT®?
Follicular unit transplantation is the standard method used for surgical management of hair loss. There are two types of graft harvest techniques. In the first, the hair follicular units are removed from the donor area in a continuous strip. This method leaves a linear scar at the donor site. The second method is the follicular unit extraction, described above as the NeoGraft® method, and which is preferred by the Pittsburgh surgeon at Premier Plastic Surgery & Dermatology. It will not leave a scar. Each technique has its own advantages and disadvantages, which should be discussed with your surgeon.
The NeoGraft® procedure aims to restore your full head of hair quickly and discretely with as little disruption to your daily routine as possible. Studies show that choosing NeoGraft®, quickly gives you a more healthy and natural looking result with little or no discomfort and no scarring (U.S.National Library of Medicine).
HOW MUCH DOES NEOGRAFT® COST?
As you weigh your options for your hair restoration procedure, you may be wondering about the financial aspect. Our Pittsburgh surgeon will discuss the details of the procedure and financial responsibility at your consultation to help you determine if it is right for you.
