Hair restoration is traditionally used to treat male pattern baldness. It’s possible to recreate a frontal hairline and correct hair loss in the crown region with the latest technology using the Neograft system. This system is an FUE (follicular unit extraction) method which removes individual follicular units from the back and sides of the head to transplant them into areas of baldness or hair loss.


However, the Neograft system is also useful technology to correct hair loss from many other causes. Brow lift and facelift patients sometimes notice a loss or thinning of hair within the frontal or temporal hairline. The hairline may also be elevated or distorted with a noticeable scar. This may prevent patients from wearing their hair back or in a ponytail. The Neograft system is very successful at harvesting individual follicular units which can be dissected into single hair grafts. These grafts can be transplanted into the areas of hair loss at the hairline to lower it to an acceptable level and create a more youthful face. In addition, these follicular units can often be transplanted directly into and in front of existing scars to camouflage or completely eliminate them.


Many women are often concerned with thinning or loss of hair in the eyebrows which may occur with aging or the result of over plucking the eyebrow hairs. Today’s cultures value more defined and fuller eyebrows but many women and even men are unaware that hair restoration techniques can create fuller and completely natural looking eyebrows that are permanent.


Finally, men are often unhappy with poor beard and moustache growth. They may have patchy or even incomplete or inadequate facial hair growth. This problem can be successfully corrected using the newest FUE techniques to transplant individual hairs into the face to create fuller beards and moustaches in a completely natural and permanent way.


The Neograft system has numerous applications to correct hair loss from multiple locations and diverse causes. The aesthetic results are entirely natural and permanent. In the end, it’s important to choose a hair restoration center with many years of experience and which performs procedures each week. Look at the practice’s website where you should see dozens of examples of their work. They should also be able to provide you with patients who have undergone hair restoration in their clinic and can talk to you about their experience. Reputable hair practices are those to whom physicians refer patients or even become patients themselves. Hair restoration practices directed by plastic surgeons are becoming more commonplace. Such practices have tremendous experience in aesthetic surgery and treat hair restoration as seriously as facelift surgery. Plastic surgeons are also bound by a code of medical ethics by their societies which protect the safety of patients and assure the best possible outcomes.
