Neograft and SmartGraft hair restoration
Sorry for your illness. Glad you have recovered. There are many options for you in regards to hair restoration. Neograft and Smartgraft hair restoration are both follicular unit extration (FUE) technique for hair transplant. Using these techniques, we can extract individual hair graft thereby avoiding the long scar which is usually visible. We prefer Smartgraft because it is more advanced when compared to Neograft. SmartGraft is a smarter option for both men and women searching for a permanent solution to hair loss. SmartGraft uses a combination of precision craftsmanship and state-of-the-art technology rather than a scalpel.The procedure can be done with more precision in less time than any other FUE method. Patients can go back to work in one or two days, and the results look and feel completely natural.

Sorry to hear about your illness and the resulting bald area on the crown of your head. NeoGraft is an excellent method of hair transplantation. For your case the success would be related to how much scar tissue you have in that area.
With a personal examination, it could be determined that a simple excision (a form of scalp reduction) of the bald area would be successful and would gave you hair immediately with minimal recovery time This could be done under local anesthesia, providing you are an appropriate candidate for the procedure.
I suggest a consultation with a surgeon who has the capability to do both the NeoGraft and scalp reduction procedures.
Thank you for the question and photos, and best of luck to you.

Treatment for hair loss
Hi and thank you for your question. I'm sorry to hear about your problem but the localized area of hair loss appears to be quite treatable using hair transplant techniques. This would of course be ultimately decided by your hair transplant surgeon following a detailed history and physical examination. I have treated many patients with the Neograft hair replacement system with excellent results with this form of localized hair loss. Best of luck.

NeoGraft Hair Restoration
Best option is to meet with a doctor to discuss treatment. Hair restoration surgery like NeoGraft can be very helpful for scarring alopecia like yours.
Neograft is an excellent option for hair transplantation to an area of need. Scarred areas need to be evaluated case-by-case. The thickness of the scarring and blood supply to the area will determine the expected result of a transplant. Products usually don't do much in this situation. Get an evaluation and exam to see what your options are.
