National Hair Awareness Month: Neograft

Did you know that last month was actually National Hair Loss Awareness month? Even though August is over, hair loss is still an important condition that affects 80 million people nationwide. Hair loss can have a devastating effect on a person’s sense of youth, self esteem, and confidence; and people suffering from hair loss should know the best options for treating themselves, regardless of what month it is. These options need to be effective and long-lasting too, unlike a lot of shampoos and medications. So that leaves us with hair transplantation, a procedure that allows a person to surgically regrow their hair. Let’s take some time to learn about some of the best in hair transplantation: the Neograft.

Problems with Other Hair Transplant Procedures

Hair transplantation has been around since the 1950s. There’s an unbelievable variety of procedures available today, but unfortunately, not all hair transplant procedures are made equally. Some procedures require surgery that cause unnatural-looking horizontal scars to appear on their scalp and hairlines that look too artificial and fake. Other procedures require invasive procedures that take way too long to recover from. That’s where the Neograft comes in.

What’s the Neograft?

The Neograft is a remarkable automated version of a hair transplantation technique called Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), what this means is that your surgeon will use pneumatic controls to extract intact, individual hair follicles from areas of your head that are immune to effects of hair loss. These follicular units can then be immediately implanted by your surgeon one-by-one into places with thinning hair or bald spots.

Because it’s automated, each harvesting and transplanting process is unbelievably precise and exact. Don’t worry, even though the process is automated, there’s still a level of artistry involved; your surgeon can precisely place each follicular unit in a way that makes it look as natural as possible. No more horizontal lines or plugs that look too artificial.

What’s Recovery Like?

There are hair transplant procedures out there that require a lot of recovery time thanks to surgery. The Neograft is one of the least invasive hair transplant procedures, so the recovery time is actually pretty quick. In fact, you can go back to work the day after your procedure.

An effective hair loss treatment can completely change a person’s life for the better. Why not try the best hair transplant procedure possible? Contact Lewis Plastic Surgery, one of the providers of Neograft, for a consultation.
