A recent release by San Diego facial plastic surgeon Dr. Roy David states that Neograft utilizes follicular unit extraction or FUE to restore thinning or missing hair.
FUE involves taking one hair follicle at a time and placing it where the patient's hair is missing or thinning. It's a method that was introduced in the 1990s as an evolution of the traditional hair transplant methods, which often consisted of transplanting strips of hair from one part of the head to the other. This method was fairly invasive and could cause scarring and lengthy recovery times.
By transplanting individual hair follicles, FUE can reduce scarring, shorten recovery times and produce much more natural-looking results. The Neograft procedure makes this process more automated and affordable.
