Are you ready for your hair restoration transformation? NeoGraft is one of the most advanced hair restoration techniques available and is proudly offered at California Hair MD. This minimally invasive and automated hair restoration system is a game-changer for hair restoration. Could NeoGraft® help you to restore a full head of hair?

What Is NeoGraft?

NeoGraft is one of the most advanced hair restoration systems available. This advanced system uses pneumatic pressure and suction to automate aspects of the hair restoration process, making hair transplantation faster, simpler, and more efficient than ever before.

How does NeoGraft improve hair restoration? This advanced system automates the FUE (follicular unit extraction) process, allowing your surgeon to harvest and place grafts more efficiently and precisely. The NeoGraft device carefully cuts around selected hair follicles and extracts them using pneumatic pressure or suction. NeoGraft also aids in the implantation process, ensuring that grafts are optimally placed at the correct depth and angle.

NeoGraft is a no-touch system that optimizes hair follicle extraction, storage, and implantation. By optimizing the extraction and implantation process, NeoGraft reduces damage to the hair follicles and creates more surviving grafts for a thicker, fuller final result.

NeoGraft is semi-automated. The advanced device automates many aspects of the hair restoration process but leaves the important decisions to a hair restoration expert like Dr. Chaffoo. While NeoGraft speeds the process of extracting and implanting hair follicles, it remains your surgeon’s responsibility to select treatment areas, determine the needed number of grafts, and optimize placement. By automating parts of the hair restoration process, FUE becomes more accessible and affordable, while enabling patients to continue to utilize the medical expertise of their plastic surgeon.

Dr. Chaffoo is a triple board-certified plastic surgeon with extensive experience in hair restoration. His outstanding surgical skills combined with the NeoGraft system allow for superior outcomes and long-lasting results.

FUT vs. FUE: What’s the Difference Between These Hair Restoration Treatments?

NeoGraft is a type of automated FUE. What does this mean? Explore two of the most common methods for hair restoration: FUE and FUT.

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)

FUE is an advanced method for hair restoration that extracts individual hair follicles and places them into areas experiencing hair loss. For many years, FUE was performed manually, with the surgeon carefully cutting around each donor hair follicle and removing the individual hair follicles using forceps.

NeoGraft provides automation to the FUE process, eliminating many of the challenges associated with manual FUE. NeoGraft makes FUE accessible to more men and women than ever before.

Linear Strip Method (FUT)

For many years, the linear strip method was the most popular option for hair transplantation. During FUT, a surgeon removes a long strip of tissue from the back of the scalp using a scalpel, then dissects the strip into individual grafts before inserting them into the balding areas in a natural grouping of one to four hairs at a time. This technique damages tissues and blood vessels at the donor and recipient sites. 

FUT allows for fast harvesting of many grafts and reduces the amount of time the surgeon spends harvesting the necessary grafts. Although it is more convenient for the surgeon, there are numerous inherent disadvantages to the patient. Unfortunately, this method leaves a long scar across the back of the head that can limit hairstyle options to longer styles. FUT is also more invasive and requires a long recovery period with several activity restrictions. There is often more pain, numbness, and tightness to the scalp after FUT compared to FUE which may last for months.

Can NeoGraft Be Combined with Other Hair Restoration Treatments?
