Newport Beach Hair MD offers NeoGraft®, a minimally invasive hair transplant technique that has redefined the field of hair restoration and the quality of life for hair loss patients nationwide.

What is involved during the traditional strip method of hair restoration in Newport Beach?

During the traditional FUT, or strip method, of hair transplant, patients are required to endure an invasive procedure which removes an entire section, or strip, of hair and scalp from the back of the head, the section of scalp with the thickest hair growth. The two sections of divided scalp are then stapled together with sutures. This wound creates a permanent scar around the entire scalp. Some patients report permanent numbness where the donor strip of scalp was removed while others complain that their scalp feels “too tight.” Once the section of donor skin and hair follicles is removed from the scalp, units of one to four hair follicles are then removed from the donor strip. These follicles are planted in pre-created recipient sites over the treatment area to create a hairline and thicker area density. Until the automated FUE method, the strip method was still a faster procedure than the manual FUE method. With NeoGraft® automated FUE technology, however, the strip method of hair restoration is no longer patients’ only viable option.

How is the FUE method of hair restoration in Newport Beach different from the strip method?

NeoGraft®’s FUE method is a minimally invasive procedure that actually removes hair follicles individually instead of in an entire strip of scalp. The donor follicles are removed from a fuller section of hair using a 1mm punch. This punch makes a tiny circular incision surrounding each individual hair follicle, and the follicles are removed using pneumatic pressure, or suction. Once the desired number of hair follicles are removed, these donor hair grafts are then implanted in much the same method as the Follicular Unit Extraction, using reverse pneumatic pressure. As hair follicles are implanted in the treatment section of scalp, the exact position of each hair follicle can be controlled. The follicles are initially removed individually, so they may be implanted individually with the 1mm punch, resulting in a more precise and natural hairline. This innovative hair transplant technology is superior to the traditional “strip method” of hair restoration because it provides patients with*:

  • A hair restoration procedure that does not require IV sedation
  • A less invasive technique to extract hair follicles
  • No incisions, sutures, or linear scarring
  • Little bleeding and fewer complications during surgery
  • More precision during surgery which results in a more natural-looking hairline*
