Consequently many downsides to the traditional method of hair replacement, WESTMED has chosen to offer the follicularunit extraction method using NeoGraft, with so many millions of individuals experiencing thinning hair and baldness. Difference is that in this method the surgeon replaces the patient’s own hairs one by one from the back of the scalp to the balding areas in the front. Advances in hair transplantation procedure technology over the past few years was truly remarkable. Then again, in the course of the surgical procedure, hairs are placed individually and precisely by a skilled technician team with your WESTMED physician. Whenever providing the most ‘naturallooking’, permanent solution for those who are bald or have thinning hair, thousands of patients have benefited from NeoGraft follicular unit hair extraction.
NeoGraft ‘follicular unit’ extraction and implantation is a method by which hair follicles are extracted and redistributed in a manner which duplicates how hairs naturally grow from the scalp. Actually the treatment is effective for both men and women.
WESTMED NeoGraft Hair Restoration Center, located at 3030 Westchester Avenue in Purchase, NY, utilizes the most advanced micrografting technology to individually transplant hair from the back of the head to thinning areas on the p and front of the head.
The procedure is done awake with local anesthesia at WESTMED Plastic Surgery in Rye.
Microscopic hair follicles grow in gradually over a few months. Many of us are aware that there is no scar or incision and the results are completely natural, we transplant individual follicles, not plugs or strips. Unlike the strip excision method which could take weeks, with NeoGraft follicularunit hair extraction you can resume normal activities in just a few days.
Most people do not have any significant discomfort after the NeoGraft procedure.
We recommend patient’s take a few days to rest and recover, some itching and swelling does occur.
Patients with a very short haircut usually have the donor area grow in by 2 weeks. Patients with longer hair can usually hide this donor area nicely. Crusting and scabbing of the transplanted areas last about a week. Accordingly a portion of the back of the scalp is shaved, and he can take a few weeks to grow in. Fact, the hair can be styled any way the person desires. Basically the transplanted hair lives and grows indefinitely. Anyway, the results are considered permanent and might be less expensive than other hair loss treatments when factored over a lifetime, even though hair transplantation is a substantial investment. So improvement in ‘self image’ and confidence is important the cost for most people. Follicular unit micrografting is a procedure during which literally thousands of follicles are redistributed into the thinning or balding areas. As well as ensure the appropriate angle, meticulous artistic and technical skill is required to design an appropriate hairline orientation and position of any transplanted hair.
Patients comfortably relax, watch DVDs, listen to music or nap during their procedure, that takes a couple of hours to complete.
Follicularunit grafts are consequently carefully implanted into the bald of thinning recipient areas.
Every micrograft contains a single follicular unit consisting of one to three hair follicles. Follicularunit micrografting creates a result that defies detection and is never, ever pluggy. Just think for a moment. Whenever using local or twilight anesthesia, most hair transplant procedures are performed on an outpatient basis. Our ideal patient will have dense hair in the back of the head can provide hairs for transplantation to the front of the scalp. Treating larger areas of hair loss also can provide worthwhile improvements, while patients with early thinning hair certainly see tremendous results. Remember, however, restoration of all hair is never possible, The results are typically a tremendous improvement that meet our patients’ expectations. Patients must also have a very realistic anticipation of what kind of results we can achieve. Lots of patients require more than one hair session transplantation and most will require some replacement again in the future as they continue to age. Others may just require small ‘touchup’ treatments in the years to come if they continue to lose hair in the untreated sections.
