Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is the strategic removal of follicular grafts which are then replaced in areas where hair growth is less dense in order to
restore hair growth for those troubled by hair loss. The procedure used to be incredibly lengthy but was preferred by many because it avoids the linear scar associated with some other treatments.
Now there's a new machine which decreases the time investment for patients and doctors. NeoGraft promises fast and efficient FUE hair transplant procedures. Dr. Alan Bauman, a top U.S. medical expert on hair loss and restoration for men and women uses NeoGraft in his Boca Raton, FL office. He has been pleased with the results he sees and will be discussing the procedure on the CBS Early Show Saturday, January 9, 2010.
The NeoGraft offers many benefits, the greatest likely being that there is no linear scar where the donor hair was harvested. The patient can enjoy a shorter, more comfortable recovery and a quicker procedure as the machine transplants roughly twice as many hair grafts in a single surgery as the previous manual FUE surgery techniques. The FUE can be used to fill in old linear scars patients may have after undergoing other transplant procedures and patients can still sport very short haircuts naturally after surgery.
