Hair loss can have many possible causes, including genetics, thyroid issues, cancer treatments, or side effects from various medications. Studies on the psychosocial impact of hair loss have found that a patient’s self-esteem, body image, and self-confidence can be negatively affected.
Why? We can mostly blame our culture, since almost every society in the world associates a luxurious head of hair with youth and good health. And to many, a full head of hair represents attractiveness and desirability, personally as well as professionally.
The facts are that approximately 50 million men and 30 million women suffer from male/female pattern baldness or thinning hair. The traditional “strip method” of hair replacement isn’t always the best option. There’s a slow recovery time to consider, the potential loss of feeling at the incision site, and some amount of post-operative pain involved. Many potential hair replacement patients may avoid this method, or may not be a good candidate for it at all.
Hair Restoration should be unnoticeable to all but those you tell.
Plastic Surgery Group of Memphis is excited to announce our newest offering, NeoGraft®. NeoGraft® introduces the “state-of-the-art” solution for hair loss. This game-changing technology automates the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) method to give patients more natural looking results with minimal downtime, no linear scarring, and no stitches.
NeoGraft® is a breakthrough procedure for men and women who want to achieve a fuller, healthier head of hair. The advantages of NeoGraft® are many, the process is simple, and it allows you to recreate a full and natural-looking hairline – using your own hair.
How does NeoGraft® work? Let’s take a look!
A certified NeoGraft® provider here at Plastic Surgery Group of Memphis will carefully extract individual hair follicles from the back of the head, also referred to as the “donor area.” This area is genetically programmed to resist the hormone that causes hair loss, meaning you’ll barely be able to tell that hair was taken from this area after it’s healed, which can be as soon as one week after the procedure. When extracting the grafts, our NeoGraft® professionals ensure they’re the same consistency in diameter and length, resulting in a dramatically increased percentage of hairs that accept the transfer.
Once the desired quantity of follicles has been collected, the follicular units are carefully separated by size – one, two, three and sometimes four hair units – to allow for a more natural occurring pattern during the implant process.
Your Plastic Surgery Group of Memphis hair transplant surgeon creates recipient sites for the hair on the thinning area in the proper angle, direction, and orientation created in the artistic transplant plan we design specifically for you.
These newly transplanted follicles will then enter the normal biological process, “resting” before growing completely new hair in the grafted areas. The result? A fuller head of hair that’s entirely natural-looking. This new hair can be colored, cut, or styled in any fashion. Since there is no linear scar and the hair transplant procedure is completely undetectable, the only people who will know will be the ones you decide to tell!
