What is NeoGraft Hair Transplant Method?

NeoGraft method of hair transplant is preferred by many people suffering from baldness owing to it being minimally invasive, painless and almost undetectable results as it leaves no ugly scar. Leonard Hair Transplant Associates offers this treatment at various locations in the United States.

Highly experienced in the cosmetic surgery field Dr. Robert Leonard is the founder and chief surgeon at Leonard Hair Transplant Associates. Experienced surgeons here deliver special care to patients making use of the NeoGraft technology which automates the entire process of Follicular Unit Extraction or FUE technique to provide better results with a painless way of harvesting follicular units.

 NeoGraft method is advantageous compared to the strip harvest technique. In the former a surgical punch is used to harvest hair follicles by suction and collected on a receptacle. The collected follicular units are separated according to size and transplanted into balding areas of scalp as a next step.

The procedure is smooth and the patient is almost unaware of what is happening. After the procedure they are free to go home. The time taken and time for post-operative healing are less than strip method. No surgical elements like sutures, scalpel or staples are used. The other advantages are minimum risk of pain or bleeding and best method when donor site is limited.

NeoGraft technology has some admirers and some detractors. Dr. Malouf a dermatologist in Dallas is in favor of the method but advises patients to select an experienced physician to be sure of safety and optimum results. Jeffery W. Hall a plastic surgeon in Austin also opines that NeoGraft and Accugraft are the best latest technologies available. He says that FUE gives 95-98 percent success.

Michelle Spring, a Marina Del Rey plastic surgeon also prefers NeoGraft as it leaves no scar and it enables precise and consistent grafts to be harvested. Both Rashid M. Rashid dermatologist in Houston and Richard Chaffoo of San Diego a plastic surgeon say that NeoGraft is an efficient tool which in the hands of an experienced, trained surgeon can produce the best results. It all depends on the surgeon, according to them.

Jack Fisher, a Nashville plastic surgeon blames marketing efforts for hiding the importance of a surgeon in using the NeoGraft method which is only a tool. It is the surgeon who is vital here, he says. Gregory Turowski, MD, PhD a Chicago-based plastic surgeon advises that FUE is the best technique for hair transplantation which can be achieved by ARTAS robotic surgery or NeoGraft technique.

Some surgeons still believe that doing the job by hand is more safe and effective while most surgeons opine that FUE is the best method of hair transplant and NeoGraft is one optimized tool to achieve this. But all the surgeons mentioned that it is more important to have a good surgeon to perform the hair transplant, which cannot be compromised by any hi-tech tool.
