The NEO Graft Procedure
Neograft Hair Restoration is a hair transplantation device which facilitates individual hair follicle harvesting during an FUE (follicular unit extraction) hair transplant, dramatically improving the accuracy and the speed over previously used manual extraction or “strip” method of hair restoration used to promote new hair growth. Embassy Studio and Med Spa, int he grater Chicago and Tri-State area offers the Neograft Hair Restoration method for the treatment of thinning hair and balding hair in both female or male-patterned hair loss clients.
NeoGraft Hair Restoration vs Traditional Hair Transplant
There are many advantages that Neograft Hair Restoration has over traditional hair transplants. Read below to find out more.
Traditional Hair Transplant
Traditional hair transplant, also known as the “strip method”, is a technique where a strip of skin with healthy hair is surgically removed from the back of the patient’s head. This process leaves a long horizontal scar which makes recovery longer and more painful and it makes it difficult for most patients to wear short hair after their hair transplant procedure.
Additionally, patients often felt that the skin on the back of their head was “pulling” from the area where the strip of hair was taken from, which felt uncomfortable and needed special care since this was a long scar. In some cases, it caused headaches and pain.
Because of the large scar, the recovery time is also longer and the patient has to avoid the sun, extraneous exercise, as well as take special care of the scar in order to avoid any complications.
NeoGraft Hair Restoration
With Neograft Hair Restoration, many of the annoying side effects of the strip method have been removed. The NeoGraft device removes the follicular units one by one and leaves no linear scar. Additionally, this allows the patient to have a faster recovery and even more natural results after their hair transplant since there is no unsightly scar in the area where the hair was taken from. Because there is no linear scar, NeoGraft can deliver more natural-looking results and restore a patient’s hairline and hair density.
What is an FUE transplant?
FUE, or Follicular-Unit Extraction, is an advanced, minimally-invasive hair transplant method that allows for the harvesting of individual follicles from the donor site without a scalpel or stitches, and therefore leaves no linear scar.
What are the advantages of NeoGraft Automated Hair Restoration over manual FUE transplants?
The highly ergonomic mechanical Neograft Hair Restoration works as a natural extension of the surgeon’s hand, allowing for faster and more accurate harvesting of hair follicles. NeoGraft patients now reach their goal with less time in the procedure chair and fewer procedures altogether. The “minimally invasive” NeoGraft Automated (FUE) and Implantation Hair Restoration procedure are quickly becoming the new “Gold Standard” for hair transplant procedures.
Why should the new hair growth when the old hair didn’t?
The genetic patterns associated with male and female hair loss, thinning and balding are very location-oriented. Movement of the follicles does not affect the genetic markers which order the hair to grow as if it was still located in the denser back section of the head. Although the hair follicle has been surgically moved, the genetic marker does not change.
How do I know if I would be a good candidate?
Anyone who might want less pain, quicker recovery, and has sufficient thickness of donor hair on the back of their scalp to transplant is a candidate. NeoGraft is especially for individuals who would like the continued option of choosing to wear very short hair in the back or sides of their head and scalp, or for those who want the least amount of activity restriction (such as athletes) after their hair transplant procedure. NeoGraft/FUE can also be used for “scar camouflage” procedures for patients who have had older forms of hair restoration, such as linear harvest methods, to try to better hide the previous scar, as well as for individuals seeking body hair transplants.
NeoGraft Surgical Hair Transplants – FUE Hair Transplants Chicago
SURGICAL HAIR TRANSPLANT AND RESTORATION, like all other plastic surgery, is an art. It requires an expert surgeon and a highly trained hand to create the most natural-appearing results that are undetectable to even the most critical eye.
At Embassy Studio, our approach to hair transplantation for each patient is individual and personal. We feel that establishing mutual trust and confidence between doctor and patient is essential in order to achieve a successful hair restoration result. Each patient’s hair transplant procedure is customized based on age, hair type, general health, and degree of hair loss and overall expectations.
Our Surgical Hair Transplant Philosophy
Our basic philosophic approach begins with a time-honored idea: “Do one thing and do it well.” At Embassy Studio in Chicago, Illinois we don’t do facelifts, tummy tucks, breast implants our focus is on hair replacement. Our clinic concentrates exclusively on performing the best hair transplants in Chicago, with the most natural hair restoration results imaginable.
We move in a little as four to six times as much hair as in the standard approach to hair transplantation, using our state-of-the-art Neograft follicular unit transplant procedure throughout.
Skill, Artistry, Technique, and Teamwork
Neograft – Chicago Illinois – Embassy Studio The decision to take action against hair loss can be, for some individuals, a difficult one. By choosing one of the most qualified hair restoration and transplantation experts, the decision becomes an easier one to make.
However, no hair transplant surgeon can achieve this goal alone. Hair transplantation, perhaps more than any other surgical procedure, depends on the assistance of skilled medical personnel in a ‘team’ framework.
Importance of the Doctor-Patient Relationship
The relationship between physician and patient in our practice is one in which there is a maximum opportunity for communication and openness. There is absolutely no sales pressure, ever. Our goal is not to schedule a surgery, but rather to establish an open, trusting relationship between doctor and patient. Follow-up calls or visits are always welcomed.
Surgical Hair Transplantation for Women
The transformation in the appearance of a woman who has had a hair transplant can be quite dramatic, even after only two sessions. For most women, two or three sessions are required to achieve optimal results.
It is generally a well-accepted fact that women are usually much more devastated by their hair loss than men because it is not socially acceptable for a woman to have less than a “full head of hair.” It is very gratifying to restore the “fullness” to the hair of such patients.
Eyebrow and Eyelash Hair Restoration
Most people underestimate the importance of eyebrows in framing the face, drawing attention to the eyes, and communicating through facial expressions. Eyebrows make an important contribution to facial symmetry and our general appearance. A person without eyebrows may feel very self-conscious about his/her appearance.
The eyebrows should be recreated in accordance with the natural contour of the eye socket. We work with the patient to outline the eyebrow area to conform to the natural symmetry of the patient’s face. Depending on the size of the area to be transplanted, more than one transplant session may be required; two or more sessions several months apart are common.
During a consultation with Embassy Studios, we will assess your situation and show you before and after pictures of clients with restored eyebrows.
The Facts About Surgical Hair Transplants
What is Hair Transplantation?
Hair transplantation is simply the transferring of hair from a “permanent” area of the scalp to another area in which hair has fallen out due to heredity or some other more unusual cause. This “permanent” hair is harvested in the form of a narrow “strip” of hair, which is then meticulously cut up under microscopic magnification to produce hundreds of tiny follicular unit grafts of 1-3 hairs each; also, in some sessions, small “multi-FU grafts” of 2 or 3 adjacent follicular units.
Does Hair Transplant Surgery Really Work?
Yes. With our exclusive Neograft procedure, the transplanted hair is removed from one area of the body (donor site) which has been genetically pre-programmed to produce healthy hair for a lifetime. Then using magnification, follicular unit grafts containing one, two, three or four hairs are meticulously transferred into the bald or thinning areas (the recipient site).
