The NeoGraft Automated FUE and Implantation Procedure

The newest method of hair transplantation is called FUE (follicular unit extraction). From a surgical standpoint, an FUE hair transplant is a very safe procedure. The FUE transplant can be done manually or using NeoGraft automated device. Doing FUE manually is very tedious and time consuming.
Now, with the NeoGraft Hair Transplant machine the problems with a manual FUE procedure have been eliminated. An FUE hair transplant with NeoGraft can be done in the same amount of time as a “strip” hair transplant, reducing the cost of an FUE transplant. In addition, to reducing the time required for the transplant, NeoGraft uses pneumatic pressure to extract the follicles and implant them as well. This eliminates the need for handling the grafts with forceps which can damage them.

The FUE hair transplant is minimally invasive procedure. With FUE each graft from the back of the head (donor area) is harvested individually and placed in the thinning or balding areas on the top of the head. The hair at the back of the head is genetically programmed not to fall out (not affected by the DHT hormone). The NeoGraft medical device is designed to help the doctor offer his patients this latest, most advanced procedure in hair transplantation while overcoming the problems with manual FUE and those of the “strip” method.

With the FUE method there is little bleeding and fewer complications than with the “strip” method. The procedure is performed with local anesthetic and no intravenous or intra-muscular sedation is required. With the FUE method no linear scars occur as with the “strip” method which can stretch out over time and be quite visible making it difficult to wear short hair. With FUE there is no linear scar allowing the hair to be worn short. There is little chance with FUE of damage to nerves, causing pain, or damage to major blood vessels. There are fewer limitations on activities for the first few weeks as with the “strip” surgery. A complication sometimes seen with the “strip” surgery is a feeling the scalp is too tight from the suturing together of the scalp. Some times permanent numbness in the area where the piece of scalp was removed occurs.

The NeoGraft medical device has been developed to assist the doctor with the FUE procedure in order to make the procedure simpler, faster and more efficacious.
