The Different Hair Transplant Systems: NeoGraft vs. Strip
Modern hair restoration methods have greatly evolved over the last decade. There are two main procedures on the market today to help men and women suffering from hair loss regrow their hair: Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), which is the technology behind NeoGraft, and Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT), also known as the Strip Method. Both systems utilize automated technology to implant hair follicles in balding areas of the scalp to restore hair growth. The difference between the NeoGraft vs Strip method lies in how the hair follicles are extracted from the donor area.
FUT (Strip Method)
FUT is more commonly known as the “strip method.” To extract donor hair, a physician removes a strip of hair from the back of your head. This strip is then separated into a large number of tiny pieces, each containing just a few follicles of hair or a “follicular unit.” These units are then implanted in the scalp on top of your head or other areas where you want to stimulate growth. At the back of the head where the strip of hair was removed, the doctor sews up the wound, resulting in a linear scar that can later be covered up with hair kept long enough to conceal it.
FUE hair transplant procedures such as NeoGraft® don’t have this problem. With NeoGraft, no strips of scalp are removed, meaning there won’t be any visible scar. Instead, the NeoGraft automated technology uses pneumatic pressure for gentle removal of individual hair follicles. A trained technician uses a specially developed device to extract hair grafts from the donor area of your head and reinsert them into the target area, one follicle at a time. At Nashville Hair Doctor, years of experience have allowed our technician to fine-tune his skill to smoothly operate the NeoGraft device as well as make the best decisions on the aesthetic outcome.
We are confident that for the perfect and discreet hair transplant that boosts your confidence without being detectable, the debate of NeoGraft vs Strip Method is firmly settled in favor of FUE hair restoration with NeoGraft.
