Is NeoGraft the Same as FUE?

Thanks to modern advancements in hair restoration methods, you can now achieve thick, healthy hair with minimal downtime. One of the most effective techniques today is follicular unit extraction (FUE). Using this method, individual hair grafts are manually extracted from the back of the head and implanted into thinning areas. This creates both a well-defined hairline and attractive, natural-looking hair density.

FUE is considered one of the best techniques for surgical hair restoration. It is also the method that demands the highest level of skill, precision, and artistry. Robotic-assisted technologies help this intricate process, and ensure your results are the highest quality possible.

NeoGraft hair transplant technology has automated some of the steps required in manual FUE procedures. At Plastic Surgeons of Lexington, we are proud to offer NeoGraft technology to optimize natural-looking results, and help our patients have a more youthful, healthy head of hair.

What Is NeoGraft?

During the NeoGraft procedure:

  • The sides and back of your head will be shaved.
  • Grafts of one-to-four-hairs each from the back and sides of your head will be extracted, using a single millimeter punch.
  • Each hair follicle graft will be individually placed into the bald or thinning areas of your scalp.

The NeoGraft hair transplant is an outpatient procedure performed at our office by our experienced surgeons and technicians. After your procedure, the tiny holes at the extraction sites will quickly heal and be virtually unnoticeable after about a week. After a few weeks, many of the transplanted hairs will shed. Do not be concerned by this, it is a natural part of the growth cycle. The hair follicles will remain and new hair will come back. Your new hair will begin to regrow and yield long-lasting results about two to three months after your procedure.
