Hair Transplant Q & A

Bopp Dermatology & Facial Plastic Surgery

 

Who is a good candidate for a hair transplant?

  • Whether you’re considering a surgical transplant or the NeoGraft automated transplant system, you’ll need to be in good health, have moderate hair loss, and sufficient hair donor sites on the back or sides of your scalp.

It’s also important to have realistic expectations about how much hair can be transplanted and the ultimate outcome. During your initial consultation, Dr. Felix Bopp will talk with you about your appearance goals and whether you’re a good candidate for hair transplantation.

How is hair transplant surgery performed?

During traditional transplant surgery, a donor site is selected, then hair is harvested in varying amounts. As few as one or two hairs along with a small piece of scalp can be removed using small punch grafts, or larger pieces of scalp can be removed that contain 30-40 hairs.

The grafts are relocated to bald or thinning areas of your scalp, where they’re inserted into small slits created in the scalp. 

How is the NeoGraft® hair transplant different?

NeoGraft is an automated hair harvesting and implantation system. It uses a state-of-the-art Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) device to extract hairs, then the hair is planted into the balding or thinning area using no-touch follicle implantation.

The benefit of the automated device is that it quickly and carefully extracts individual hairs from throughout your donor site, so that the donor site remains natural looking. By comparison, traditional surgery removes a flap of skin that leaves a scar.

The harvested hairs are automatically transplanted into the bald or thinning area, placed in a precise location one hair at a time. When the new hair begins to grow, it looks more natural than the surgical transplantation of one piece of scalp.

What are the benefits of a NeoGraft hair transplant?

You gain many benefits from choosing a NeoGraft transplant over traditional surgery:

  • Minimally invasive procedure
  • Local anesthetic
  • Little to no discomfort
  • No stitches, staples or scars
  • Quicker recovery

NeoGraft can also be used to fix visible linear scars from previous transplant surgeries. It can effectively fill in or camouflage old scars by transplanting new follicles into the area.
