We all deserve to be proud of our appearance. For many of us, our hair plays a major role in shaping the way we feel about how we look. Unfortunately, as many as 40 million men and 21 million women suffer from hair loss and thinning hair.
At Bay Area Aesthetic Surgery in San Francisco, our board-certified plastic surgeons know how to help you and your hair look as good as you feel with NeoGraft's cutting-edge hair restoration technology. This advanced scientific treatment provides stunning cosmetic results with virtually no visible scarring and a minimal recovery period.
Hair Restoration Techniques
Hair restoration treatments today are typically performed in one of two ways. Some surgeons prefer the follicular unit transplant (FUT) technique, commonly referred to as 'the strip method', but at Bay Area Aesthetic we offer one of the most sophisticated follicular unit extraction (FUE) techniques available to deliver some of the best hair restoration San Francisco has to offer. FUT procedures are more intrusive than FUE procedures, and they tend to leave more obvious scarring.
Because of the prominent scar line that occurs, FUT procedures might not be ideal for candidates who choose to wear shorter hair styles. On the other hand, FUE is less invasive and produces far less noticeable scarring. While both techniques have a number of benefits and limitations, our NeoGraft FUE treatment is easily the most advanced technique available in the hair transplant industry. Our team can help you make an informed decision based on their assessment of your personal needs and cosmetic goals.
NeoGraft Hair Restoration Advantages
NeoGraft is the first and only FDA approved follicular unit harvesting and implantation system available.
Before NeoGraft, hair transplants were labor-intensive and time consuming, but now, with this revolutionary automated system, doctors can double the number of grafts transplanted per session or shorten procedure times, saving you both time and money.
There are also a number of other benefits to consider:
- NeoGraft is the least invasive procedure for hair transplantation
- NeoGraft patients feel minimal discomfort, if any at all
- No stitches or staples are required
- Scarring is virtually unnoticeable giving you more flexibility to choose your hairstyle
- Recovery time is quick and there are less activity restrictions after your procedure
- Results are natural looking
- The best way to determine if NeoGraft is the right implant procedure for you is to speak to our team at our Bay Area office.
Who is a Hair Restoration Candidate?
Candidates for NeoGraft are individuals who are experiencing hair loss, thinning or balding. NeoGraft can be used or men or women, although it is most commonly used as a treatment for men. Ideal candidates should meet the following requirements:
- Are generally in good health
- Do not smoke
- Are not prone to keloid or hypertrophic scarring
- Do not have heart or bleeding conditions
Recovery After Hair Restoration Surgery
Within the first few hours after a NeoGraft hair transplant, very small scabs will begin to form on your scalp. This is an indication of healing. It’s very important not to pick at these, as picking the scabs increases the risk of infection. The scabs will fall off on their own within two weeks. Your scabs will still be visible, but if you’re ready, you may return to sedentary work within 1-2 days of your procedure.
Wait for at least one day before you wash your scalp. Don’t wear hats or anything over your head for several days. Wait for at least two weeks before you engage in any strenuous activity.
