What is NeoGraft™?

NeoGraft™ is a revolutionary hair transplantation system that allows the surgeon to perform the most advanced and clinically-proven hair transplantation called FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction). FUE generally relies on the skill of the surgeon to be precise. With the added use of the NeoGraft device, the surgeon can provide consistent and exact placement of hair follicles using technology that operates with precision automated control. This means your hair transplant procedure can be performed to a greater level of safety and efficacy with the utmost accuracy and precision. NeoGraft can provide you with a completely natural appearance with less pain and downtime.

What is an “FUE” hair transplant?

“F.U.E.” or “Follicular-Unit Extraction” is an advanced, minimally-invasive hair transplant method that allows for the harvesting of individual follicles from the donor area without a scalpel or stitches, and therefore leaves no linear scar.

What are the main benefits of FUE over linear harvesting?

It is well-accepted that FUE transplants can heal faster and are more comfortable than linear-harvest techniques. With FUE, once healing is complete, the patient has the option of wearing a very short haircut without the worry of a telltale linear scar. Without the need for stitches, downtime is shorter with fewer activity restrictions post-operatively.

What are some benefits of NeoGraft over manual FUE techniques?

The highly ergonomic mechanical NeoGraft device works as a natural extension of the surgeons’ hand, allowing for faster and more accurate harvesting of hair follicles. NeoGraft™ patients now reach their goal with less time in the procedure room or fewer FUE procedures altogether.

Who is a good candidate for FUE using NeoGraft?

Patients who would like the option of wearing a very short haircut in the back or sides of their scalp, or those who want the least amount of activity restriction (e.g. athletes) after their hair transplant procedure, may be good candidates for FUE with NeoGraft. FUE can also be used for ‘scar camouflage’ procedures for patients who have had prior linear harvests, as well as for body hair transplants.

Are the final transplanted ‘results’ any different with FUE than those achieved with linear harvesting?

Results are similar. Provided that the grafts are implanted with equal care, artistry and precision into the recipient area, the final transplanted results with FUE would be similar, if not identical, to those accomplished with a linear harvest. The difference is not in the area of transplanted hair, but rather how the donor area is harvested—either by a strip of scalp or by small individual graft extractions.

Is FUE/NeoGraft suitable for both men and women?

Yes. Because FUE/NeoGraft is a minimally-invasive procedure, it is a viable option for both men and women looking to restore their own living and growing hair with transplantation.

Do I have to get a total ‘buzz cut’ to have an FUE/NeoGraft procedure?

No, but it helps. If your donor hair is long enough, harvesting using the FUE/NeoGraft can be done by shaving small areas which can be covered by your other, existing hair. For maximum yield, however, a buzz cut is recommended in the donor area.

How do I know if I am a suitable candidate?

Candidates for hair restoration have sufficient donor hair on the back of the scalp to transplant into the frontal balding areas. The best candidates are men and women with only frontal or partial hair loss and with adequate donor hair. Call us at 724-264-3608 to schedule a consultation with Dr. Brian Heil. Dr. Heil will assess the amount of coverage needed to give you the appearance you desire.

Will I need further treatments?

Hair loss does not stop after transplantation. If your balding continues with age, you may need continued maintenance and further sessions. Progressive hair loss or the desire for greater density may require more transplants. An estimate of balding pattern and the number of procedures needed will be discussed during your consultation with Dr. Heil.

How soon will I see results?

The science behind grafting is quite simple. Hair follicles are taken from the hair in the back of the head that naturally continues to grow. These follicles that hold your transplanted hair are living tissues that grow cyclically. Once the healthy hair follicle has been implanted into the balding area, the grafted hair will stay in place for about two to three weeks before shedding – this is normal and an important part of the new growth process.

After shedding, the new growth will begin in 3-4 months, and your hair will continue to grow normally. More importantly, your results will look healthy and natural.

Update Regarding COVID-19 View Update Virtual Consultation

To our Premier & Acqua Blu community,

March 21st Update:

We remain at your service during this time.

To our post operative surgical patients you can still reach Dr Brian Heil by contacting us at 412.953.3373 or 724.747.7062. You may also email us at [email protected] or [email protected] We are standing by to assist you and will return calls and emails within the same day.

You are all in our thoughts and prayers. Please stay in touch via Facebook, Instagram and our website. We look forward to seeing you soon.

March 19th Update:

It has always been our mission to take the very best and safest care of our patients and staff, and in these uncertain times, this responsibility extends also to our Western PA community at large. Therefore, we are monitoring the situation on a daily basis with safety as our top priority. Currently, all patients and employees are being screened before entry to our facilities; this involves both measuring each person’s temperature and a COVID-19 screening survey based on PA DOH and UPMC standards. All patients with a temp over 99.5°F will be asked to reschedule. We have gone down to a skeleton staff to minimize the office population and ensure that less than 10 people will be in any facility region at the same time. We will be minimizing the use of waiting rooms by directly rooming patients after check-in when possible and, at times, by asking some patients to safely wait in their cars until their exam or treatment room is ready.

Hand sanitizers are available throughout our offices as well as sinks with soap and water. We continue to disinfect all frequently-touched surfaces between patients, including counters, furniture, pens, iPads, door handles, restroom fixtures, exam tables and chairs, wiping them down with hospital-grade sanitizers after each patient encounter. Our professional evening cleaning service is taking extra precautions in cleaning using their EnviroShield Endure System and adhering strictly to guidelines issued by the CDC & OSHA. Our facility is always maintained to the highest standards of cleanliness and sterility; however, we have ramped up our daily practice of decontamination and hygiene protocols to an even higher standard. Please limit chaperones to one additional person, and refrain from bringing in children and the elderly.

If you recently have had surgery and need to be seen for a follow-up visit, be assured that we will see you personally to ensure a full and safe recovery. At these appointments, you will be seen by only essential staff that have remained healthy, without signs of any illness or history of viral exposure. As a standard precaution, personal protection equipment will be worn as appropriate when examining you in accordance with any standing CDC recommendations. For now, at Premier Plastic Surgery we will be doing a limited number of consultations and treatments at our Wexford and Upper St Clair offices. Also during these challenging times we’d like to offer the option of a virtual consultation, please request these virtual consults by emailing us directly at . Our phones will still be answered during normal business hours and all emails will continue to be answered.

At this time, all surgeries planned in our private surgery center will be able to be completed as scheduled. Premier Surgery Center of Pittsburgh is a specialized outpatient facility that treats one patient at a time. Its medical resources are not of benefit or value to treating COVID-19 patients, thereby falling outside the call for cancellation of elective surgeries.

If you already have an appointment scheduled with Acqua Blu Medical Spa, one of our staff members will be reaching out to you directly to reschedule consults or treatments at a more safe future time. Regular appointments will resume on or after March 31, unless otherwise updated.

In the face of this ominous public health challenge, we all must work in concert with our community to help each other, protect each other, and extend extra understanding and patience to our fellow man. We urge everyone to protect themselves and their families. If you are experiencing any symptoms, please reschedule and seek out your general practitioner. If you need to reach us for a surgical emergency outside of office hours, please contact the answering service by calling (724) 935-7213 for emergencies.

This is an evolving situation and we will adjust our policies and practices in accordance with the best current knowledge and CDC recommendations. Please stay informed of the all Federal COVID-19 Task Force recommendations and any mandates of the PA Dept of Health. We will continue to pray for everyone and care for our patients through this time of need.

March 18th Update:

For the safety of our patients and staff, Premier Plastic Surgery is temporarily limiting visitors and restricting patient care for those potentially infected with COVID-19 virus. All patients and visitors will be actively screened prior to entry. For patients recovering from surgery, we ask that you limit accompanying visitors to 1 per patient. Visitors will be asked to remain in their vehicle for the duration of the visit. Visitors will be permitted in the exam or waiting room only in special situations, when a visitor is essential for the well-being and care of the patient. No visitors who are ill, sick, frail, elderly or at-risk (i.e. immune compromised or serious chronic illness) will be permitted access. No children less than 18 years of age will be permitted. Please do not bring children to your visit. Any approved visitors will be screened at the facility entrance by a staff member and must comply with a temperature screening.

March 16th Update:

From the time we opened our practice in 2001, our patients and employees have always been central to our purpose and our top priority.

Our hearts go out to all those who have been affected by the coronavirus. In the face of this unprecedented pandemic, we want to assure you we are committed to the health and safety of our patients and employees.

As part of our occupational health and safety regulations, washing our hands between each patient, wearing gloves, sanitizing our instruments and tools, disinfecting our treatment rooms, operating rooms, and checkin and checkout desks are part of our regular daily practice and occurs frequently throughout the day - regardless of season or sickness. Additionally, our practice undergoes weekly deep cleaning. We do this to ensure that our patients can trust Premier Plastic Surgery & Acqua Blu not only for their treatment but also for the practice environment. 

We're closely following the guidelines of The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), The World Health Organization (WHO) and The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and doing everything we can to keep our communities safe. We have provided hospital-grade antibacterial hand gel sanitizers in our office and are requiring each staff member and patient to use it upon their arrival. We have added more frequent disinfecting of high touch areas to our already rigorous sanitation standards. This will include the front door, the point of sale computer and surface areas, patient seating areas, treatment rooms, and bathrooms.

We are requesting that both patients and our staff take steps to reduce the transmission of communicable diseases by following these important guidelines:

  1. Stay home when you are sick and for at least 24 hours after you are free of fever (100 degrees F or 37.8 degrees C), or signs of a fever without the use of fever-reducing medication. 
  2. Wash your hands frequently with warm, soapy water for a minimum of 20 seconds.
  3. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol.
  4. Cover your mouth with tissue when you sneeze and discard the tissue into the trash.
  5. Avoid people who are sick with respiratory symptoms.
  6. Clean and disinfect household objects and surfaces in your home.

We are committed to exceeding your expectations at this time. Thank you for the opportunity to serve you, in this time and always. And, while it's tough to imagine, we're all hopeful that brighter days will be here again soon. We're all in this together!

Stay safe and healthy.
