It’s quite obvious that hair loss can have an adverse effect on a person’s appearance, but unfortunately, there are more than just physical consequences that one must deal with. As a part of the aging process, hair loss can cause emotional and mental duress. Consequently, finding ways to overcome this use to be quite challenging . . . until the advent of the NeoGraft Procedure. The advanced technology of this procedure enables a more natural appearance without the adverse side effects of other procedures.
What is known about NeoGraft already?
Unlike other hair restoration and transplant procedures, NeoGraft can be performed on most individuals regardless of hair type. In the past, individuals with coarse, curly, and thick hair were not viable candidates for other types of procedures. However, the NeoGraft procedure can accommodate those hair types as well as individuals with fine and straight hair.
Compared to other hair restoration and transplant procedures, there are certain benefits that the NeoGraft procedure offers which the others do not including:
- Advanced, automated technology makes it a minimally invasive procedure
- Fewer restrictions on post-procedure activities
- Gentle procedure with little to no pain and discomfort
- Minimal downtime and quicker recovery period
- More natural looking, superior results
- Programs available to accommodate every patient’s budget parameters
Although it is still a surgical procedure, NeoGraft is minimally invasive. This means NO incisions, NO stapling, and NO unsightly scarring.
Are You a Candidate?
Unfortunately, not every person is a good candidate for this procedure. There are a few requirements that patients must meet. First, despite being minimally invasive, this is still a surgical procedure. Therefore, all patients must be in reasonably good health. So if you have bleeding or clotting issues, hypertension, or unmanaged diabetes, this will increase the risk of more serious complications.
The best patients are those who are in good physical and suffer with moderate hair loss. They have sufficient donor hair located at the rear of the scalp and can be transplanted into those areas where balding and hair loss is the most pronounced. Individuals with more donor hair that is denser and fuller can expect better NeoGraft results. Finally, patients must be willing to take whatever steps are required in order to prepare for this. It is best that everything is explained in detail, including any risks with the procedure so that they are aware of the procedure.
Most importantly, attitude is everything. Granted, everyone should expect good results. However, your cosmetic goals should also be reasonable. While NeoGraft has been very successful, you shouldn’t expect to see the same density that you experienced as a teenager. Your hair restoration physician will be able to assess how much coverage is needed in order to provide you with a more natural looking appearance. If you meet all of the requirements above, you should experience you should expect your results to be nothing less than positive.
