Call the office in Beverly Hills, California, or book a consultation online to learn more about NeoGraft hair transplants for hair loss.
A hair transplant involves removing hair follicles from the back of your scalp, where the hair is still growing. These follicles are inserted to the area that’s balding, such as a receding hairline, to restore a fuller head of hair. The more donor hair you have, the better the results. A hair transplant works for both men and women.
NeoGraft offers an automated way to transplant hair. It uses follicular unit extraction (FUE), which is the least invasive way to remove follicles from the back of your head. No longer do you have to endure surgical removal of strips of your scalp and the scarring involved.
With FUE, there is almost no scarring and a quick recovery. With FUE, Dr. Nikolov or another expert technician at The Nikolov Center for Plastic surgery removes each follicle separately from hair-growing parts of your scalp and transplants it to the balding areas.
To be a candidate for NeoGraft, you should be in good health and be experiencing moderate hair loss. You need sufficient hair at the back of your scalp to transplant into needy areas.
You should have reasonable expectations from the procedure. A hair transplant won’t give you the head of hair you had as a teenager, but can give you a fuller, natural look.
When first transplanted, hair lasts about two to three weeks before falling out, which is completely normal. New growth in the transplanted area begins about three to four months later and assumes a normal hair life cycle that looks healthy and natural.
The length of time your hair transplant lasts depends on your balding pattern. Dr. Nikolov examines your scalp to provide you with a good understanding of what you can expect and tells you if you’ll need multiple procedures. A hair transplant does not halt the balding process.
