BALTIMORE, June 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Cosmetic Surgery Center of Maryland is the first practice in the area to offer NeoGraft, a hair restoration technology for men and women. This new procedure results in a full and natural-looking hairline with none of the downtime or unsightly scars associated with traditional hair transplants.
Statistics on Hair Loss
According to the American Hair Loss Association (AHLA), approximately two-thirds of men have some degree of noticeable hair loss by age 35; by age 50, approximately 75% have significant hair loss. Male pattern baldness (androgenetic alopecia) often begins before men reach age 21 and accounts for nearly all of the hair loss in men.
Women can also suffer from hair loss, and as with men, it can be extremely detrimental to self-confidence and self-image. Women make up 40% of all hair loss sufferers in the United States, according to the AHLA. Men and women suffer from different types of hair loss; most women have diffuse thinning through the scalp, while men tend to have distinct patterns of baldness. Although hair loss can occur from stress, disease, or medications, most male hair loss is due to heredity.
The NeoGraft System
This breakthrough hair restoration system automates the follicular unit extraction (FUE) method of transplantation, making it more affordable for patients and less labor intensive for surgeons. In the NeoGraft procedure, a mechanized tool extracts a graft from the donor area in the back of the head; the hair in this area is genetically programmed not to thin or fall out. The graft is then placed in the balding or thinning areas on the top of the head. The implanted hair follicles then produce normal new growth several months after the procedure.
The NeoGraft system makes the hair transplant process easier, quicker, less painful, and more successful—the viability of each graft is improved by the innovative collection process that can be customized for each patient. The implantation device is precisely calibrated to transplant the harvested follicles to the same depth at which they originally grew, creating a natural appearance.
Benefits of NeoGraft
- It allows for aesthetic, precise placement of hair follicles for a natural-looking head of hair
- It is much faster than previous transplantation methods
- There is no surgery; it is minimally invasive with no unsightly scars
- There is little to no downtime with a short recovery
- There are few limitations on activity after the treatment
- The results last a lifetime
