At Northeastern Plastic Surgery, we understand the common need for hair restorations procedures. According to the American Hair Loss Association, women suffer from hair loss as well and actually account for 40% of those suffering from this condition. By the time they reach age 50, almost half of all women experience some degree of hair loss and would greatly benefit from a Follicular-Unit Extraction Hair Transplant.
If you are interested in bringing your hair back to the way it was without invasive surgery, contact Northeastern Plastic Surgery to set up a consultation with Dr. Fodero today!
BENEFITS OF THE FUE METHOD
- FUE hair transplant is a very safe, minimally invasive, relatively minor procedure
- Minimal bleeding and fewer complications than with the “strip” method
- Procedure is performed with local anesthetic and no intravenous or intra-musular sedation is required
- Patients experience minimal discomfort, no scalpel incision, no sutures, no linear scar and quick recovery times
- And Many More!
The NeoGraft Automated FUE is also a useful procedure to fix visible linear scars from previous “strip” surgeries. FUE can be used to ‘fill in’ or camouflage those old scars by transplanting new follicles into the area.
NeoGraft is a method of FUE (Follicular-Unit Extraction), which is simply a minimally invasive hair restoration method used to harvest and transplant hair. Individual hair follicular units are removed directly fro, the patient’s donor site and then replanted into the scalp. There are other FUE methods, but NeoGraft shows many benefits over them. A specially trained technician uses a hand-held machine that cores the follicle while controlled pneumatic pressure slides the graft out smoothly.
