How NeoGraft hair transplants are performed
If you’re considering a NeoGraft hair transplant then you’re likely curious as to how exactly it’s performed. There are many misconceptions that persist when it comes to hair transplants, despite the huge advancements in the field over the last few decades. Many guys still mistakenly believe that it’s not possible to achieve natural results or that hair transplants are risky in some way.
In order to help you make an informed decision, below is a detailed explanation of how a NeoGraft hair transplant is performed.
1. Extracting the donor hair
The first step in a NeoGraft hair transplant is for the donor hair to be extracted.This is where a NeoGraft hair transplant differs from a regular FUE procedure. Although the hair is still extracted individually without any need for an incision, through the use of the NeoGraft machine, surgeons are able to extract the hair much more quickly and accurately.
2. Placing of the hair grafts
Once the donor hair has been extracted from the back of the head, the grafts are then separated by size.The grafts are then placed very carefully in the thinning areas of the scalp.The hairs must be placed in the proper angle and direction in order for the results to look natural. This is why a good deal of skill and experience is required on behalf of the surgeon.
3. Why is the hair taken from the back of the head?
The donor hair is taken from the back of the head for a couple of reasons. Firstly there’s enough density in this area to provide the required number of grafts to provide good coverage. Secondly and most importantly – the hair that grows on the back (and sides) of the head is genetically programmed to be permanent. The hair retains its genetic property even when transplanted. This means any hair that’s transplanted will remain permanently.
