Now offering revolutionary ARTAS robotic hair transplantation
Hair Transplanatation Chicago – New Horizons offers NeoGraft revolutionary patented hair transplant machine that automates FUE hair transplants. The NeoGraft machine is the product of several years of research and development. NeoGraft uses the most advanced instruments to achieve a level of excellence in the latest method of hair transplantation called FUE. An FUE hair transplant is the most beneficial type of hairtransplant for the patient. Before NeoGraft, FUE hair transplants could only be done manually. Most doctors do not offer a manual FUE procedure because it is a very tedious and time consuming procedure, which makes it too costly for most patients. The doctor must also become very skilled in this procedure in order to avoid a high transection rate of the follicles.FUE hair grafts obtained by ARTAS robotic hair transplantation system – cosistent , precise and reproducible no comparable to anything else even Neograft
New Horizons offers NeoGraft revolutionary patented hair transplant machine that Doctors who do not use NeoGraft continue to use the traditional STRIP method which requires the doctor to surgically cut and remove a strip of scalp from the back of the head and suture the opening. The NeoGraft hair transplant machine eliminates the need for this type of painful surgical procedure. An FUE transplant using the NeoGraft machine is the least invasive technique for doing hair transplants, with the least complications. There is no cutting and no suturing with an FUE procedure and therefore there are no elongated elliptical scars produced at the back of the head as happens with a STRIP surgery. Often the scars do not allow the patient to wear short hair. Down time is minimal with a NeoGraft FUE procedure compared to the STRIP method and the FUE patient is not restricted in doing activities for about two weeks as is the STRIP patient . An Fue transplant simply removes each follicle separately from the back of the head and transplants it to the bald areas. NeoGraft harvests follicles of excellent quality with a low transection rate.
Hair restoration surgery – FAQ
1. What is NeoGraft™?
NeoGraft™ is a new device which facilitates the harvesting of follicles during an “FUE”-type hair transplant, dramatically improving the accuracy and speed over previously-used manual extraction instruments.
2. What is an “FUE” hair transplant?
“F.U.E.” or “Follicular-Unit Extraction” is an advanced, minimally-invasive hair transplant method which allows for the harvesting of individual follicles from the donor area without a scalpel or stitches, and therefore leaves no linear scar.
3. What are the main benefits of FUE over linear harvesting?
It is well-accepted that FUE transplants can heal faster and more comfortably than linear-harvest techniques using a scalpel and requiring stitches. With FUE, once healing is complete, the patient has the option of wearing a very short haircut without the worry of a tell-tale linear scar. Without the need for stitches, downtime is shorter with fewer activity restrictions post-operatively.
4. What are some benefits of NeoGraft™ over manual FUE techniques?
The highly ergonomic mechanical NeoGraft™ device works as a natural extension of the surgeons’ hand, allowing for faster and more accurate harvesting of hair follicles. NeoGraft™ patients now reach their goal with less time in the procedure room or fewer FUE procedures altogether.
5. Who is a good candidate for FUE using NeoGraft™?
Patients who would like the option of wearing a very short haircut in the back or sides of their scalp, or those who want the least amount of activity restriction (e.g. athletes) after their hair transplant procedure, may be good candidates for FUE with NeoGraft™. FUE can also be used for ‘scar camouflage’ procedures for patients who have had prior linear harvests, as well as for body hair transplants.
6. What are the major cost differences between FUE and linear-harvest hair transplant procedures?
The fee structure for FUE hair transplant procedures reflect the more detailed and intricate nature of those procedures compared to those performed with a linear harvest.
7. Are the final transplanted ‘results’ any different with FUE/NeoGraft™ than those achieved with linear harvesting?
Results are similar. FUE procedures, by default, yield grafts that contain mainly one, two, three, or four follicles called “follicular units.” Linear harvests, which are then microscopically dissected by a team into grafts of one, two or three follicles, would also yield similar ‘follicular-unit’ grafts. Provided that in each case the grafts are implanted with care, artistry and precision into the recipient area, the final transplanted results with FUE would be similar, if not identical, to those accomplished with a linear harvest. The difference is not in the area of hair growth, but how the donor area is harvested either by a strip of scalp or by small individual graft extractions.
8. Is FUE/NeoGraft™ suitable for both men and women?
Yes. Because FUE/NeoGraft™ is a minimally-invasive procedure, it is a viable option for both men and women looking to restore their own living and growing hair with transplantation.
9. Do I have to get a total ‘buzz cut’ to have an FUE/NeoGraft procedure?
No, but it helps. If your donor hair is long enough, harvesting using the FUE/NeoGraft can be done by shaving small areas which can be covered by your other, existing hair. For maximum yield however, a buzz cut is recommended in the donor area.
10. Am I a good candidate for a procedure using FUE/NeoGraft?
The best way to determine whether you are a candidate for hair transplant using FUE/NeoGraft is a one-on-one consultation with your doctor.
