Patients that have undergone NeoGraft hair transplant in Miami at Jolie Plastic Surgery feel confident with the results they get. This procedure consists of a series of steps:
Men and women interested in NeoGraft hair transplant in Miami at Jolie Plastic Surgery can rely on Dr. Pascual for a more attractive and natural look. During the initial consultation, she will make sure you understand your options. She will address any questions or concerns you may have and complete a physical assessment as well as obtain your medical history.
Based on this information and her experience, she will recommend the most suitable approach. Your initial consultation is an excellent opportunity to ask any questions you may have about the procedure or Dr. Pascual’s qualifications. She has a track record of satisfied patients and over ten years of experience with an extensive understanding of the latest and most advanced hair transplant techniques.
Your doctor will determine the number of hair grafts you need after your initial consultation and the evaluation. The donor and recipient area must be carefully evaluated for the surgeon to determine the number of grafts you need as well as the best approach to your particular situation. The number of grafts required depends on the grade of baldness, head size, and hair characteristics. For the advanced FUE hair transplant, you will need approximately 1400 to 1600 grafts. Each graft has 1 to 4 hair follicles with an average of 2 follicles per graft.
An average patient has about 6000 grafts available in the donor area, and the average balding area is 200 cm2. Therefore, the average patient has enough hair to create the appearance of fullness. Nevertheless, some patients obtain better results than others, depending on the availability of donor hair. We encourage you to consult your doctor first. Some patients may not have enough donor hair, and in some specific cases, the patient may not be a good candidate for this procedure.
During your initial consultation, your surgeon will determine which hair restoration procedure is the most suitable for you. Once your doctor determines that NeoGraft hair transplant is the best option, you will prepare for treatment. Before the procedure, you may discontinue some medications as well as herbal supplements as instructed by your doctor.
In general, a NeoGraft hair transplant surgery takes approximately 3-8 hours. It is essential you wear comfortable clothes during the entire procedure. Also, you should arrange for a ride to and from Jolie Plastic Surgery and make sure you get there on time. It is natural for some patients to feel a slight discomfort after the NeoGraft hair transplant surgery; therefore, having someone with you can be useful and convenient.
At Jolie Plastic Surgery we do everything possible to make you feel comfortable on the day of your Neograft hair transplant surgery. Your vital signs are checked to confirm that you are ready for the procedure. A portion of the donor area is carefully shaved to allow the automated hair transplant machine easy access to hair follicles.
Then the site is disinfected, and the patient is administered a local anesthetic to ensure the procedure is pain-free. Once the scalp is prepared, the patient will lay face down, and our certified automated hair transplant technician will extract the healthiest hair follicles in groups of one to four. The NeoGraft machine extracts the hair gently removing 600 units per hour. Patients are fully awake during the procedure, and they have a break after extraction to go to the restroom, stretch their legs, or relax.
Once the surgeon collects sufficient follicular units, the patient sits comfortably, and the area where the units will be placed is numbed. For a more natural look, hair follicles are placed in the best possible location. All harvested follicles are carefully transplanted. Patients are fully awake during graft placement as well so they can communicate with the surgeon and use their cellphones.
After the automated hair transplant, the follicles need to rest and some time to regrow. The hair in the donor area grows back within 7 to 10 days, and the transplanted hair follicles will be rooted in the scalp during that time. Most people get back to their daily routine right away.
There is typically little to no pain associated with this procedure. The outside world should not notice any visible signs of surgery a week after surgery. It is important you follow all postoperative instructions and take pain medications as instructed by your surgeon. We always encourage our patients to arrange for a ride home.
Neograft is the most advanced hair transplant technique. Therefore, the advantages are many. This tool was developed to provide physicians with a more natural and hand-fitting tool. The method is very accurate, and the benefits go far beyond the tool itself. Some usual benefits include:
Patients with thick donor hair and realistic expectations achieve the best results. About 20 percent of the hair tends to grow after two or four months, and 60 to 10 percent will grow by the eighth month. Hair should be fully grown within ten months after surgery. Although the final hair density can vary from one patient to the other, the results of the NeoGraft automated FUE are permanent.
It is important to know that the implanted hair follicles will grow and shed after several weeks, which is natural. Patients can expect the new hair to grow normally after that. The results should be natural-looking, durable, and healthy. However, patients should see full results within a year.
Although the cost of NeoGraft hair transplant can vary from patient to patient, we charge $3.50 per graft. The average price for this procedure elsewhere is $5 per graft.
It’s hard to identify what type of balding patterns younger patients will experience in the future. Also, donor hair is limited. Therefore, patients who receive a hair transplant at a very early age and experience hair loss after may not have sufficient donor hair when undergoing additional operations. Many surgeons prefer their patients wait until they are close to 30 years old to get a hair transplant.
