Minimally INVASIVE HAIR RESTORATION
NeoGraft® has revolutionized hair restoration in La Jolla. Previous methods of hair transplant, such as the strip method, require invasive surgery, IV sedation, an extended recovery period, and a noticeable linear scar across the scalp. The manual Follicle Unit Extraction (FUE) method can produce more efficient results than the strip method but also requires a longer surgery.* At La Jolla Hair MD, Dr. Chaffoo offers NeoGraft®, the automated FUE method of hair transplant, which eliminates all the disadvantages of the manual FUE method and improves several aspects of the strip method.
The traditional strip method removes a strip of scalp from the back of the head which requires sutures and results in a long, primitive linear scar. The hair follicles are then removed with forceps while under a microscope, increasing the chance of harming hair follicles. Although the recovery from the strip method of hair restoration is typically one month or more, the procedure itself is relatively short. The manual FUE method – the other traditional hair restoration technique – produces a higher follicle survival rate and less recovery time but is a much longer procedure than the strip method. Thanks to NeoGraft®, La Jolla Hair MD now offers minimal invasive hair restoration that combines the effectiveness of the FUE method with the speed of the strip method and none of the disadvantages of either technique.
