Before and After picture of male NeoGraft hair transplant patient - top view | Hair Transplant in NashvilleYou look in the mirror. You see that your hairline is receding. You inspect the top of your head. You realize that your hair is thinning. You panic. What can be done?

Once you’ve done your research, you will no doubt realize that the only true solution for hair loss is getting a hair transplant. Nothing does more to rejuvenate your look than a full head of healthy-looking hair. At the Nashville Hair Doctor, we are here to tell you that among your different hair restoration options, the NeoGraft hair transplant technology is the best one.

That’s because we know what’s important to you. You are looking for good hair growth results, but you want to be discreet. You don’t want signs of any procedure to be visible, and you don’t want to miss a lot of work while you’re recovering. You’d also like for the procedure itself to be virtually pain- and hassle-free.

A NeoGraft hair transplant does all those things, and more.

How Does NeoGraft Work? A Look at FUE Hair Transplantation

The NeoGraft Automated Hair Transplantation system consists of a hand-held device that uses pneumatic pressure to extract individual grafts of hair from the “donor” area. A graft typically contains several hair follicles, and the donor area is the part of your scalp where hair growth is thick. Once the hair grafts are extracted, they are artfully implanted in the balding areas of your scalp with a technique akin to a pinprick.

The technical term for this method of hair transplantation – we like to call it hair restoration – is Follicular Unit Extraction or FUE. The hair is extracted in the smallest possible increments, one “follicular unit” at a time. The FUE  technology was originally developed in Europe, and the device we use today is in its 4th generation. It has become extremely popular over the last decade because it doesn’t require surgery, causes no scarring, and results in a completely natural look. Your typical recovery from FUE lasts just a few days, with some patients returning to work the very next day.

What Happens During Your NeoGraft Hair Transplant Procedure

Each hair transplant procedure is different, and where exactly the technician places the hair grafts is more a work of art than science. A good technician will have had years of hair transplantation experience to hone his or her skills.

Before your hair transplant procedure at the Nashville Hair Doctor, we make sure to discuss your specific hair restoration plan that reflects your goals for hair growth and appearance. During the actual procedure, the technician identifies the hair follicles on the back of your head best suited for transplantation, and then uses the NeoGraft device to extract individual hair grafts. In the next step, the extracted hair grafts are carefully reinserted into the previously marked recipient sites, making sure proper angle and orientation are preserved for an aesthetically pleasing result. These steps are repeated until all the recipient areas are treated.

At the end of the procedure, your scalp will be covered in hundreds of small red dots where the hair follicles have been inserted. Some swelling may occur, and the incisions may take up to a week to fully heal. However, they are very small and pose no risk of scarring. Most patients wear a hat for a few days until any marks have disappeared. You an take up your regular activities as early as the next day after your procedure.

A Different Kind of Hair Transplant: Designer Beards

That is where most men experience thinning hair or hair loss. Restoring hair to the crown of your head immediately gives you a younger look.

But hair restoration does not have to be confined to areas where you have experienced hair loss. The beauty of the NeoGraft technology is that it can be used to insert hair follicles to any part of your skin. Think eyelashes, eyebrows, even chest hair!

In recent years as beards have become more fashionable, beard transplants have become very popular. Even if it’s just a covering of a “designer stubble” you are after, a facial hair transplant can make sure that your beard doesn’t look patchy. It can also help cover up skin problems like acne scars.

The Advantages of NeoGraft Hair Restoration

Nashville hair doctor patient review

If  you want to regrow your own hair in a natural way that gives you many options of how to wear it, a NeoGraft hair transplant  is the way forward. At Nashville Hair Doctor, we are confident that when you see the results, your only regret will be that you have waited this long!

Specifically, here are the major advantages of NeoGraft over other transplants:

  1. No linear scar – the tiny incisions made by the NeoGraft device to extract and insert follicles need no stitches or staples to heal, unlike the large incision made to remove a strip of hair from the back of your head with the aptly named strip method.
  2. Minimally-invasive procedure – Since no pieces of scalp have to be transplanted, a NeoGraft hair transplant is much less-invasive and can be completed in just a few hours. It also carries much lower risk and gives you less discomfort – both during and after the treatment.
  3. Excellent and affordable results – your newly grafted hair will start growing naturally, allowing you to wear your hair short or long afterwards. Since the NeoGraft procedure requires no general anesthesia, the cost is affordable compared to more invasive hair restoration methods. We also offer 12-month interest-free financing options.
