Hair thinning is a common occurrence in both men and women. It can occur at any age and is often a source of embarrassment. In the U.S., approximately 50 million men and about 30 million women suffer from male/female pattern baldness. Many of these people often seek hair loss solutions that can help reclaim their hair and the confidence that comes with it. Over the years, technological advances have brought many improvements to hair restoration procedures. Dr. Demetri is proud to offer NeoGraft, the latest in hair restoration technology.
Hair transplantations are surgeries that involve harvesting hair follicles from one part of the scalp and implanting them into areas that are thinning. Follicular unit extraction (FUE) is a method in which individual hair follicles are removed manually. NeoGraft is an automated type of follicular unit extraction that makes the procedure much easier to perform with less discomfort to the patient.
The best candidates for a NeoGraft treatment are people with enough healthy hair for transplant. Previous patients of strip grafting can also choose to undergo a NeoGraft treatment for better results.
A NeoGraft hair restoration treatment is also a good choice for people who prefer to avoid a horizontal incision from traditional hair grafting. NeoGraft uses tiny punch incisions that are ideal for candidates who want to have a shorter treatment schedule.
The results from a NeoGraft hair restoration are perfect for candidates who prefer a more natural look. The quick recovery also allows the patient to work the next day.
NeoGraft cannot provide its full benefits for people who smoke and do not maintain good physical health. Consult with Dr. Demetri to determine your eligibility for NeoGraft.
Your NeoGraft consultation will involve an assessment of your existing hair condition. Dr. Demetri will locate good donor sites and recommend transplant sites according to your appearance goals.
During a consultation, Dr. Demetri will give you an overview of your treatment schedule and how to prepare for the NeoGraft appointment.
Be ready to provide your complete medical history to help Dr. Demetri plan a safe and successful NeoGraft treatment to help you achieve a full head of hair.
Before your NeoGraft appointment, you will need to cut your hair shorter. This will help our NeoGraft technicians shave the donor site easily for a smooth follicular unit extraction process.
The haircut will also help conceal the changes from the NeoGraft session. NeoGraft patients with longer hair will be shaved strategically to disguise the shaved areas.
Using the NeoGraft Method, a special wand is used to extract the hair follicles with powerful suction. Unlike older methods that required a series of incisions to be made before implanting the hair follicles, the more modern NeoGraft method utilizes a special tool that makes the incisions and implants the hair follicles simultaneously.
When compared to traditional FUE and FUT surgeries, the NeoGraft system is a much more efficient method of hair transplantation. Using this advanced method, there will be less trauma to the hair follicles removed and can help improve the survival rate of the transplanted hairs. Since this technique is minimally invasive, there is a lower chance of risk and less downtime. NeoGraft is also a much faster method of hair transplantation and can be performed in a day when others may take multiple.
“Great doctor. I felt comfortable talking to him. Everything was straight forward and went exactly like he explained it. I am very happy with the results. I would recommend Dr. Demetri to a friend.”

After undergoing a NeoGraft treatment, patients can expect to experience some scalp numbness and swelling, but this is temporary and will subside. You can expect to take a few days off from work to rest and recover as the implants heal.
The cost of a NeoGraft treatment varies from patient to patient and depends on the needs of each individual. Factors we take into consideration are the extent of hair loss and the number of follicles that need to be removed to achieve the desired results. Dr. Demetri will develop a treatment plan to address your specific needs and discuss the associated cost. We also have affordable financing options through CareCredit.
Men and women dealing with hair thinning and baldness but have thick hair in other areas may opt for Neograft. Candidates should not be experiencing hair loss as a result of medication or stress. During a consultation, we will perform an initial examination and discuss your medical history to determine if NeoGraft hair restoration is right for you.
