Medical Hair Replacement to Reverse Male Pattern Baldness

Before and After picture of male NeoGraft hair transplant patient - side view | Nashville Hair DoctorBy the age of 35, two in three Americans will suffer some type of hair loss.That’s a staggering number. If it affects you, you might take comfort in not being alone. But what you really need in order to boost your confidence is for your hair to grow back.

Medical hair replacement is by far your best option if you are affected by hair loss, thinning hair, or premature balding. In men, most hair loss can be attributed to male pattern baldness. This is when the hair on top of your head begins to thin and may eventually disappear altogether, leaving a ring of healthy hair around the back and sides of your head.

Hair replacement surgery takes advantage of this ring of healthy hair that is resistant to falling out. One method of hair replacement is Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) to move individual follicles from the back of your head to the top of you head. Another method is the Strip Method (also called FUT) to remove a strip of hair from the back of your head, separate it into tiny units, and transplant them to the top of your head. Both hair replacement methods have the same outcome: Your hair will start to grow in over the next 4-14 months, and you will regain a fuller head of hair with a nicely restored hairline.

Hair Replacement With a NeoGraft Hair Transplant

NeoGraft hair transplants are among the most popular hair replacement solutions to combat hair loss. Based on the FUE technology, the NeoGraft system uses pneumatic pressure to extract hair follicle units or grafts from the donor area of a patient’s head. It then uses uses reverse pressure to insert those same grafts in the recipient area of the scalp.

The beauty of a NeoGraft hair replacement is that it’s minimally-invasive. It’s only considered a surgical procedure because small pinpricks are needed to insert the hair follicles into the scalp. But in terms of discomfort it really resembles more a really long session of laser hair removal. It is typically administered under mild local anesthesia, meaning you won’t feel much at all. After the  procedure, you will be sore for a few days while the tiny incisions heal.

There is a second, bigger, advantage of NeoGraft over other hair replacement methods: Since it is built to extract every hair follicle individually instead of entire pieces of scalp like the Strip or FUT method, it won’t leave you with any unsightly scar on the back of your head. After your NeoGraft hair transplant, there will be no visible signs that you’ve ever had anything done to your hair, other than looking as if it has magically started growing again.
