Hair loss is a common concern for many individuals, and over the years, hair transplant procedures have evolved significantly. At Pasadena Hair Transplant, we pride ourselves on utilizing cutting-edge technologies.
One of our preferred techniques is Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), a procedure performed with the state-of-the-art NeoGraft® system.
What is FUE?
Follicular Unit Extraction, or FUE, is a precise method of harvesting hair follicles from one area of the body to transplant them to another. There are two primary modern methods of hair transplantation: FUE and FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation). Both are effective in relocating hair follicles, but the key distinction lies in the harvesting method.
FUE involves the removal of individual hair follicles, usually 1 to 4 at a time, without the need for incisions. In contrast, FUT involves the removal of a strip of hair follicles, necessitating incisions and stitches. The preference for FUE over FUT is growing among patients because FUE offers a more discreet and quicker recovery process.
FUT, on the other hand, can leave noticeable linear scars, whereas FUE leaves no visible scarring. It’s worth noting that FUE is generally a slower and more expensive procedure, primarily when performed manually with forceps. This is where the NeoGraft system shines.
NeoGraft FUE Hair Transplant
NeoGraft is a revolutionary robotic device that has significantly improved the FUE procedure. The critical advantage of NeoGraft lies in its ability to perform FUE more quickly and efficiently than traditional manual methods.
NeoGraft’s robotic arms, guided by our skilled plastic surgeon, harvest hair grafts from the donor area using pneumatic pressure, eliminating the need for forceps. This preservation of hair follicles enhances the overall success rate of the procedure, resulting in more natural-looking and beautiful outcomes.
Moreover, NeoGraft FUE hair transplant surgery can be completed in less time than manual FUE, making it a more convenient option for patients with busy schedules. The NeoGraft system has truly revolutionized the field of hair restoration by combining efficiency with quality results.
Scalp and Facial Hair Restoration
NeoGraft FUE hair transplant is a versatile solution that can be used for various types of hair restoration procedures. Typically, the back of the scalp serves as the donor area because it tends to have the most available hair follicles.
NeoGraft can harvest these follicles for transplantation to areas experiencing hair thinning or baldness on the scalp. Additionally, it can be used for eyebrow and beard restoration, providing patients with the opportunity to enhance their facial aesthetics.
Men and women alike can benefit from the natural-looking results achieved through NeoGraft hair transplant surgery. Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) performed with NeoGraft robotics represents one of the most advanced options available for hair restoration.
