NeoGraft FUE hair transplant device is a fully automated procedure that has proved to be a superior alternative to strip technique. The morbidity that is typically associated with strip surgery is reduced significantly with NeoGraft. It is important to choose the right cosmetic surgery or hair restoration expert to perform NeoGraft procedure.
In the right hands, NeoGraft offers a safer and less invasive alternative to conventional strip procedure, and completely avoids the unsightly linear strip scar. Dr. Paul Fortes is a well-known, board certified plastic surgeon providing NeoGraft hair transplant procedure to patients in Houston, Katy, TX, and surrounding locations.
FUE technique using NeoGraft device has been called the game changer in the field of hair transplant surgery. It enables the harvesting of hair follicles without the need for a scalpel or stitches, which reduces the possibility of a linear scar. The superior efficiency and accuracy of FUE harvesting with NeoGraft as well as the reducton of risk, downtime, discomfort and scarring caused by a linear strip harvest have made NeoGraft the method of choice for a large number of people today.
The device improves the quality, speed and efficiency of FUE hair transplants. Leading plastic surgery expert Dr. Fortes will assure the patients about no scarring and other benefits of NeoGraft during the initial consultation.
Avoiding Linear Strip Scar
For many patients, the most heartening thing about NeoGraft FUE procedure is that it avoids the undesirable linear strip scar. People who like to wear very short hair can continue to do so after the procedure. The FUE technique allows the NeoGraft expert to extract single Follicular Units, which means groups of one, two, three or sometimes, four hair follicles, individually from the donor area without the use of a scalpel.
The automated device reduces the need for a scalpel, which also means that the patient will not need any sutures and there will be absolutely no linear scar. The procedure is much less invasive, which allows for quicker healing and less post-op activity restrictions. Most patients can return to activities such as gym, tennis, golf or swimming after just three days.
If the FUE procedure is performed manually, it will be a tedious process requiring significantly more time than a traditional strip technique to gain the same number of grafts. For many years, hair restoration experts could only harvest around 500 to 700 grafts per day with manual FUE.
Now with the NeoGraft technology, they can consistently harvest 1,500 to 1,800 grafts or more during a regular procedure day, or 3,000 to 4,000 grafts or more in a two-day comprehensive NeoGraft treatment. Leading cosmetic surgeon Dr. Fortes receives patients from Houston, Katy, TX, and nearby areas for NeoGraft.
Patients will walk out of the NeoGraft procedure with grafts implanted in the recipient area just as they would with a traditional procedure, but without stitches or staples in the donor area. The tiny circular incisions will heal and become almost invisible within a few days.
