What is NeoGraft?

Neograft is an automated hair transplant system which facilitates the harvesting of follicles during a Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) hair transplant, dramatically improving the accuracy and speed over previously used manual extraction instruments.

How NeoGraft Works

The FDA-cleared NeoGraft system automates the surgical removal and collection of individual hair follicles, one at a time, replacing the need for doctors to remove a large strip from the back of the scalp (a procedure known as a linear-harvest Follicular Unit Transplant or STRIP FUT).  The targeted removal of individual hair follicles is known as “Follicular-Unit Extraction” or FUE, and is a minimally-invasive microsurgical procedure that has been available for several years but, until now, has been too time-consuming and costly for many patients. 

NeoGraft is an exciting new breakthrough for hair loss patients, allowing more men and women to take advantage of the benefits of no-scalpel/no-stitch FUE hair transplants. FUE has been an extremely effective surgical procedure that allows for the precise, artistic placement of new hair follicles to recreate a fuller, more natural-looking hairline, while reducing recovery time and no longer requiring an unsightly, linear scar associated with traditional hair transplants.

Until now, FUE-type hair transplants were labor-intensive and time consuming, which meant that patients had to undergo long, multiple surgeries to get the desired effect. Now that a more efficient automated system is available, doctors can double the number of grafts transplanted per session or shorten procedure times, saving patients both time and money.

How is NeoGraft performed?

Hair transplantation is a process in which hair is taken from the back of the head or donor area and replaced in areas where hair loss has occurred. The NeoGraft system uses a special technology that is able to quickly remove the hair follicles from the donor area and implant them to balding areas. NeoGraft uses a controlled pneumatic pressure to slide out the graft smoothly, so there is no pulling or twisting (which can risk damaging the graft.) Because the NeoGraft transplant is faster than other, out-of-date methods, the grafts can be re-implanted sooner, keeping them more robust and increasing the success of the grafting process.

What are the main benefits of FUE over the "strip" surgery?

It is well accepted that FUE transplants heal faster and more comfortably than linear incision harvest techniques which use a scalpel and require stitches. With FUE, once healing is complete, the patient has the option of wearing a very short haircut without the worry of a tell-tale linear scar. Without the need for stitches, downtime is shorter with fewer activity restrictions immediately after the procedure.
