FUE Transplant and Frequently Asked Questions

Hair Transplant Questions and Answers

I Am A Doctor. Can I Get Training On Your Machine? 
When a doctor purchases the NeoGraft machine,  training will be provided on the use of the machine. Doctors will be advised where to receive further hair restoration training if needed.  In addition technical assistants will be provided to assist the doctor in hair transplant procedures. Most technical assistants are independent contractors and come to the doctor's office to help with the surgery.  This is the industry standard for transplant surgery. 

What Does Your Hair Transplant Device do?
The NeoGraft machine is a revolutionary automated hair transplant machine that assists the doctor in performing a hair transplant using the FUE technique, the latest hair transplant technology to date.  The FUE technique is less invasive than the traditional STRIP method used by most doctors today. With the FUE technique there is no cutting of the scalp, as there is with the STRIP method.  Since there is no cutting therefore there is no suturing, no visible scarring as with STRIP surgery, very little bleeding and almost immediate recovery time. 

What Is An FUE Hair Transplant?
Follicular Unit Extraction is the most recently developed transplant procedure that does not involve any incisions like the STRIP method still used by most doctors today.  The FUE method harvests individual hair follicles from the scalp, in their naturally occurring groupings of about 1-4 hairs. The follicles are then transplanted into the balding area. The Fue Transplant procedure was introduced in 2001.  It is the least invasive procedure, with the fewest complications and the end result is an excellent, natural look. 

Why Is FUE Not Offered By More Doctors?
Doing a complete transplant using the FUE method without the NeoGraft machine is very time consuming, requires many assistants and is therefore more costly than the STRIP method.  Most doctors feel patients will not want to pay for this procedure so they do not promote it.  Also doctors need to train in order to learn how to do this procedure and many are reluctant to do so, once they are comfortable with the STRIP method.  For these reasons, most doctors do not offer a complete transplant using the FUE method.  Some doctors may offer to use the FUE method on small areas such as filling in a hairline where few follicles are needed.  However, most doctors, once they learn about the benefits of the FUE method, understand that it is more beneficial for the patient, since it is a much less invasive proceedure. 

The NeoGraft machine brings down the cost of doing the FUE procedure because the procedure time is shortened and there is no need for the many technicians as there is when doing a manual FUE hair transplant.  The reduced costs can be passed on to the patient, allowing more people to have the FUE procedure.  Not all patients are suitable for the FUE procedure, but the NeoGraft machine allows a larger propotion of patients to have the FUE procedure.  One of the main reasons that the FUE procedure may not be offered is if the patient's donor area is very small  and then the STRIP method would be the more suitable method. However, today patients can use body hair with the FUE method if they do not want the STRIP surgery method. 

 What Are The Advantages Of Using Your Automated Device?
There are many advantages.  Our device allows more individuals to be candidates for the FUE method of transplantation.  Doing FUE by hand limits the number of people who can have this technique because of the time factor which raises the cost.  Furthermore, some people have certain physical conditions such as deeply embedded follicles, thicker skin, or tougher skin and it is sometimes difficult to take out the grafts without damaging them. T
he NeoGraft machine uses controlled pneumatic pressure (suction) to slide out the follicle smoothly, so there is not the pulling and twisting with tweezers which puts the follicle at risk for damage. These conditions often eliminate individuals from being good candidates for the FUE method. The follicles extracted by the contra-angled tool of NeoGraft are of an excellent quality.  Furthermore because the transplant procedure is faster with the NeoGraft machine, the follicles can be re-implanted sooner which keeps them more robust, increasing the success of the grafting process.  With the traditional manual method used for FUE hair transplants, the patient must rely more on the skilful hand of a technician or doctor.  There is not the same consistency or quality control as with the NeoGraft. 

Further advantages of the FUE procedure with the NeoGraft machine are less complications from surgery, mostly invisible scarring whereas with the SLIT method there is elongated scarring, reduced healing time, FUE is a non invasive surgery, unlike SLIT surgery which is invasive, and finally as stated, our device shortens the time of the FUE procedure, therefore reducing the cost.

What About STRIP Excision (FUT)?
STRIP excision, or FUT, is the traditional transplant procedure used by most doctors today whereby a strip of skin is removed from the donor site at the back of the patient’s head.  The incision is stitched together in such a way that there is a  linear scar. The scar may enlarge over time to overcome the tension of the skin created by cutting a strip and suturing the scalp together. The strip of skin is dissected by technicians under microscopes and hot lights int follicle units of 1-4 hairs. This can be drying to the follicles. The follicles when dissected by the technicians are not uniform and this can cause problems with implanting as the slits made for implantation are uniform. With NeoGraft all the follicles are uniform. Stitches come out in about two weeks.  Patients usually experience pain with the STRIP surgery and medicine is prescribed for the pain.

How Do I Know Which One To Have, FUE Or STRIP?
With the FUE technique, only the individual hair follicle is removed.   There is no dissection of skin or stitches. The small wound made when the follicle is extracted contracts as it heals, so the FUE patient ends up with tiny scars not visible to the naked eye.  With the STRIP procedure there is an incision and a linear scar. Patients with a small donor area may require the STRIP method, however, body hair can often be used for an FUE transplant.  With the NeoGraft more people qualify for the FUE method, which is less invasive, and has less possible complications. Your doctor will decide whether you are eligible for the FUE procedure.

Is a Hair Transplant Safe?
From a surgical standpoint, a hair transplant is very safe.   It is a relatively minor surgical procedure.  An FUE transplant is performed under local anaesthetic, and does require intravenous or intra-muscular sedation.  With FUE the patient is awake during the procedure, and can watch T.V. or talk with the doctor.

Is FUE Hair Transplantation Painful?
Most people are surprised that there is virtually no pain during an FUE hair transplant procedure which is done under a local anaesthetic.  Some small discomfort may occur as a local anaesthetic is injected into the scalp.  Once the skin is properly anaesthetized, there is no pain.  After the FUE surgery, patients will typically feel some minor discomfort.  It is usually described as minimal.  With the STRIP method, there is more pain, with the amount of pain depending on each patients individual pain threshhold. Medicine can be prescribed to help with any discomfort or pain.

 What Are The Possible Complications?
FUE Hair Transplant surgery is considered to be a minor procedure.  There are rarely  complications and any that may occur can easily be dealt with by your doctor. With SLIT surgery more complications can occur, such as infections, excessive scarring, a feeling of tightness of the scalp, hair loss in the scar area, nerve pain, bleeding, as well as a chance of damage to the occipital or temporal blood vessels.

 When Can I Go Back To Work?
It is often possible to go back to work within the next day or two after the FUE transplant. With the SLIT proceedure, depending on the level of pain, more down time is usually required.

 When Will My Newly Transplanted Hair Start To Grow?
Normally it takes between three to five months following surgery before the transplanted hair follicles begin to grow new hair.

What Is The Cost Of A Hair Transplantation?
Prices typically average around $4 to $8 per graft for the STRIP method and  more for the FUE method when done manually.  NeoGraft reduces the cost of an FUE tansplant because the NeoGraft machine reduces the time to do the FUE proceedure. 

 Why Are The Costs Of The Transplant Reduced With Your Device?
The NeoGraft eliminates the need and cost for the many technicians necessary to help the doctor with the procedure.  The machine also shortens the time needed to do the transplant, which reduces the cost as well.  These savings can be passed on to the patient.

 

 How Many Sessions Will Be Required?
It depends on how many grafts are to be transplanted.  With NeoGraft, more than double the grafts can be transplanted compared to a manual FUE.  With NeoGraft almost the same number of grafts can be done as with the STRIP method in the same amount of time. The number of sessions can be discussed during the consultation with your surgeon.

 

 

 

 

 

How Many Grafts/Hairs Will I Need?
The amount of grafts you will need ultimately depends on your degree of hair loss and on how dense your donor hair is at the back.


Will It Really Look Natural?

Yes, the only people who know will be those you tell.
