Hairline Restoration: Technology or Art Form?
NeoGraft® is a hair restoration system using Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). With a wand under pneumatic pressure, a hair restoration specialist extracts “follicular units” (bundles from 1-4 individual hair follicles) from the donor area of the patient’s scalp and inserts them into the recipient area, typically on the top of the head. NeoGraft is a revolutionary technology that has transformed the world of medical hair replacement. It is minimally-invasive, allows for rapid recovery, and avoids any linear scars on the back of the patient’s head.
But advanced technology is only half of the equation in the world of hair restoration. The other half comes from the person who uses the technology, your NeoGraft Master Technician. If you want a professional-looking hair transplant, having the right technician perform it key to a successful hair transplant.
Technically, NeoGraft (or FUE in general) is a surgical procedure. But it does not require a plastic surgeon or even a physician to perform it.* A surgeon’s training isn’t what’s needed for a NeoGraft specialist. Rather, it takes years of experience in hair restoration to be able to give patients a professional-looking hairline. With extreme hair loss, the hairline often disappears altogether. It takes an experienced NeoGraft Master Technician to restore the hairline in a way that looks natural and age-appropriate.
* At the Nashville Hair Doctor, all hair restoration procedures are performed by a NeoGraft specialist at a fully-staffed plastic surgery clinic under the supervision of a board-certified plastic surgeon.
