Rivela Plastic Surgery is excited to announce we are now offering a special rate of $4.25 per graft for the “state of the art” solution for hair loss for men and women, NeoGraft-Hair Restoration! The first minimally invasive, FDA-approved, hair transplant system.
Neograft Hair Restoration is a hair transplantation device that facilitates individual hair follicle harvesting during an FUE (follicular unit extraction) hair transplant, dramatically improving the accuracy and the speed of previously used manual extraction or “strip” technique of hair restoration used to promote new hair growth. Dr. Rivela is the first board-certified plastic surgeon in The Woodlands, Houston, Spring, and South Texas areas to offer NeoGraft Hair Restoration for the treatment of thinning hair and balding hair in female or male patterned hair loss.
There are many advantages that Neograft Hair Restoration has over traditional hair transplants. Read below to find out more.
Traditional hair transplant, also known as the “strip method”, is a technique where a strip of skin with healthy hair is surgically removed from the back of the patient’s head. This process leaves a long horizontal scar which makes recovery longer and more painful and it makes it difficult for most patients to wear short hair after their hair transplant procedure.
Additionally, patients often felt that the skin on the back of their head was “pulling” from the area where the strip of hair was taken from, which felt uncomfortable and needed special care since this was a long scar. In some cases, it causes headaches and pain.
Because of the large scar, the recovery time is also longer and the patient has to avoid the sun, and extraneous exercise, as well as take special care of the scar in order to avoid any complications.
With Neograft Hair Restoration, many of the annoying side effects of the strip method have been removed. The NeoGraft device removes the follicular units one by one and leaves no linear scar. Additionally, this allows the patient to have a faster recovery and even more natural results after their hair transplant since there is no unsightly scar in the area where the hair was taken from. Because there is no linear scar, NeoGraft can deliver more natural-looking results and restore a patient’s hairline and hair density.
Patients in need of NeoGraft hair restoration are recommended to schedule a consultation to learn more about this procedure. The areas of the scalp where the hair is thinning will be examined, and the patient will be asked questions regarding their health. The details of the hair restoration process will also be discussed.
Any concerns or questions that patients may have can be brought up during the consultation. These include how to prepare for it and how much it might cost.
What is an FUE transplant?
FUE, or Follicular-Unit Extraction, is an advanced, minimally-invasive hair transplant method which allows for the harvesting of individual follicles from the donor site without a scalpel or stitches, and therefore leaves no linear scar.
What are the advantages of NeoGraft Automated Hair Restoration over manual FUE transplants?
The highly ergonomic mechanical NeoGraft Hair Restoration works as a natural extension of the surgeon’s hand, allowing for faster and more accurate harvesting of hair follicles. NeoGraft patients now reach their goal with less time in the procedure chair and fewer procedures altogether. The “minimally invasive” NeoGraft Automated (FUE) and Implantation Hair Restoration procedure is quickly becoming the new “Gold Standard” for hair transplant procedures.
Why should new hair grow when the old hair didn't?
The genetic patterns associated with male and female hair loss, thinning and balding are very location oriented. Movement of the follicles do not effect the genetic markers which order the hair to grow as if it was still located in the denser back section of the head. Although the hair follicle has been surgically moved, the genetic marker does not change.
The cost of a NeoGraft hair restoration procedure will typically depend on the extent of the issue. Special offers can also affect prices, such as the $4.25 per graft offer available right now.
