Unfortunately for some, genetics along with other factors cause hair loss – even at a young age – which many find embarrassing. It is not surprising that there is so much demand for a procedure that produces very natural-looking hair.
The best candidates for this procedure are people who have a healthy amount of hair in one area of the head, but not in another. Male pattern baldness – *where the balding can occur at the front and top of the head, but not around the ears or back* – is a good example. The hair transplant grafts must be taken from an area where you still have thick and healthy hair. Most balding men make good candidates for this procedure along with many women who receive great benefits from Neograft hair restoration. However, depending on the type of hair loss you are experiencing, this procedure may not be the best option for you. All of this can be discussed directly with Dr. Torgerson during your complimentary consultation.
Neograft Hair Transplant is approved as safe procedure that bring strong, credible results. If you have been considering any kind of hair restoration to combat baldness, Neograft FUE is the most cutting-edge, revolutionary technology available on the market today. Good hair is thought to be an attractive quality in both men and women, so if hair loss is becoming a growing concern for you, it might be time to look into the simplicity and ease of Neograft Hair Transplant. In this time of social media and Internet access, much of people’s confidence can come directly out of how they feel about their appearance. Baldness and hair loss can certainly be a contributing factor to a lack of self-esteem. Therefore, if hair loss has become a problem for you, definitely consider this non-invasive, hair transplant procedure. You will be impressed with how easy the whole Neograft process is and will experience a great boost in your self-confidence.
People have always been seeking out ways to either hide or reverse baldness. Wigs, painful transplants, and ineffective gimmicks have all been marketed as ways for people to regain not just their hair, but their self-esteem. Before the Neograft Hair Transplant system was introduced in 1997, doctors used a strip method, where hair was harvested in patches from a donor spot on the body and transplanted the strip onto the patient’s head. This procedure was painful, used stitches and anaesthetics, and required long recovery periods. The Neograft system uses newer technology that is far less invasive and painful to create better, more natural-looking results. Patients are able to return home on the same day without any linear scar or stitches.
As it is with other cosmetic procedures, your first step should be to schedule a consultation with Dr. Torgerson. He will examine your hair and pattern of baldness to determine whether you are a good candidate for NeoGraft hair transplant. He will talk to you about your medical history to determine whether you have any conditions that would make this procedure unwise or ineffective. Following this, if you are a good candidate, Dr. Torgerson will walk you through what is involved and what to expect. He can also answer any questions that you may have about the hair restoration procedure. In our office you may also look at before and after photos of other patients who have undergone the procedure.
The Neograft system removes up to 4 follicles at a time, transplanting each graft from somewhere on your head that still has quality hair remaining, and implants it back onto the balding spot. The donor hair site must be resistant to testosterone that causes hair loss, *which is one of the factors Dr. Torgerson will be able to easily assess with you.* There are no stitches or staples involved, which is one of the major benefits of this treatment since it means that there will be minimal linear scar. This makes an incredible difference for patients considering hair restoration. Instead of being under a general anaesthesia, you’ll receive a local anaesthesia and go through the procedure fully awake. There is almost no numbness or pain from the harvest spot and very little pain in the transplant location. Hair can be as long or as short as you wish, based on the length of the harvested hairs, and the procedure itself is tailored to you as an individual and unique patient. Neograft is far safer and more cost-efficient than other hair transplant procedures. Depending on the extent and nature of your hair loss, a few repeat visits may be necessary to help you get the best results possible. *However, once all the grafts take, they should last you a lifetime if there are no medical reasons for further hair loss.*
*Once the transplant has taken place, you can expect to see growth results in 2-3 weeks. At this point, the hair will shed, leaving behind the follicles and roots.* No need to worry, however, as natural regrowth will begin to occur after this point. Not many will be able to tell that you’ve had a transplant. After 3-4 months, hair will begin growing healthily, and after 9-12 months, you’ll have the best results. We’ve had many happy patients report that once their hair came in, it did wonders for both their appearance and their self-esteem.
