Are You a Good Candidate for a NeoGraft Hair Transplant?

American men and women are no strangers to hair loss — by the age of 35, two-thirds of men in the United States will experience some degree of hair loss and women make up a whopping 40% of hair loss sufferers.

If you’re not ready for the aging effects that balding can have on your appearance, there are solutions, and the team at NeoGraft Hair Restoration in Westport, Connecticut, offers one of the most effective. Under the direction of board-certified physician Dr. Dana Brownell, we researched the options and feel that NeoGraft® excels in both procedure and results.

Here’s a look at how this innovative hair restoration technique works and whether NeoGraft is right for you.

Rearranging your follicles

One of the more frustrating aspects behind balding is that it often only takes place in certain areas on your head, while hair is in plentiful supply in other areas. As an example, men often lose hair on the tops of their heads, while the back and sides still enjoy ample growth.

Recognizing this, medical researchers discovered a way to transfer hair from one area to another through a procedure called follicular unit transplant (FUT). Using this technique, we were able to remove strips of scalp tissue from high-growth areas and transplant them into areas where the hair was thinning. 

While effective, FUT can be painful and results were somewhat spotty as we had to suture these strips back onto your scalp, creating linear scarring.

With NeoGraft’s automated follicular unit extraction and implantation technology, hair restoration is easier and more accurate. In fact, there are a wide range of benefits that Neograft offers over the FUT approach, including:

Since its introduction, NeoGraft has garnered a 95% “Worth It” rating from, which is the go-to marketplace for aesthetic treatments.

Getting to your results

One of the first questions we’re asked is when you’ll be able to enjoy your final results. After we perform your NeoGraft treatments, you’ll instantly realize a fuller head of hair.

The transplanted follicles, however, will lose the existing hair shafts as they prepare for new growth in their updated locations. Rest assured, your patience is rewarded when, three to four months later, your scalp is covered with healthy hair.

Are you a candidate for NeoGraft?

Most people with thinning hair are candidates for our innovative NeoGraft hair restoration procedure, but there are some exceptions.

First, you need to be in good health, and your body should be able to tolerate topical anesthesia.

Second, if you’re prone to excessive scarring, especially keloid or hypertrophic scarring, we can help you find a hair restoration alternative, such as platelet-rich plasma therapy.

Third, and this point is important, NeoGraft is extremely effective in areas where your hair is thinning. If your scalp has already lost all of its follicles and has developed a shiny surface, your hair follicles won’t likely transplant successfully in these areas.

If you have more questions about whether NeoGraft is right for you, we invite you to call our office to set up a consultation or request an appointment online today.
