Follicular unit extraction (FUE) is a hair transplant technique that does not leave a linear scar on the back of the head, making it an excellent option for individuals who like to wear very short hair.
NeoGraft FUE treatment details
When you arrive for your FUE NeoGraft appointment, the back of your head will be shaved, if it is not already. You will be given injections to numb your head, and you will then be made comfortable lying face-down on a medical chair, and Dr. Hessler will begin the procedure. The NeoGraft’s handheld device will be used to make tiny, circular incisions in the scalp to remove the hair follicles. The device is essentially a tiny tube with a sharp edge to “punch into” the scalp. The device also has a suction tube connected that helps pull the grafts out.
Once the units have been removed and prepared for transplant, Dr. Hessler will use a fine, needle-point instrument to create tiny recipient sites in the areas where hair growth is needed. She will immediately graft the hair follicles into these areas in a natural-looking pattern. The placed hair follicles can now become healthy, hair-producing follicles. After this, your head will then be dressed with surgical gauze or dressings.
