NeoGraft Process

The NeoGraft process is not quicker - in fact, the harvesting of follicles can take hours - but the NeoGraft provides its greatest value-add in the way it leverages technology that serve as an extension of the surgeon's hands. I suggest you consult a board certified facial plastic surgeon because the board certified credential ensures you receive the highest quality knowledge, treatment, care and skill available. A consultation provides you the opportunity to relay your concerns and desired outcome to the surgeon while the surgeon can assess your health profile and discuss his/her pertinent advice.

How much hair can be transplanted with the NeoGraft device?

Compared to a linear strip procedure, which leaves a permanent but fine scar in the donor area (assuming your surgeon is experienced and dedicated to the field of hair restoration), and FUE procedure takes significantly longer to perform.  With the linear procedure, the strip of scalp is removed under local anesthesia and sedation and then handed to a team of technicians who will separate each follicle from the other under dissection microscopes.  Since all of the technicians are dissecting the grafts all at once, it is much faster than removing each follicle one-at-a-time.

In terms of "better results", this has nothing to do with NeoGraft or any method of hair restoration.  Your hair transplant results will depend entirely and 100% on the experience and dedication of your physician and his or her team of technicians.  There are literally hundreds of subtleties and nuances in the performance of this hours-long, surgical team-oriented, artistically-demanding procedure. Clearly, common sense would tell you that a physician who has dedicated their practice and career to hair restoration will deliver much different results than a physician who recently acquired a device to start performing hair restoration procedures. Interview more than one physician, and make sure you're comfortable with their background in the field before proceeding.

Is the NeoGraft quicker and does it give you better results?

No, it doesn't.
But the question to your question is, 'Who are you asking your question to, owners and representatives of the machine or opponents?'. Once you answer my question, you will see that you already know the answer to your question.

Neograft is a FUE method with no linear scar

I have been using Neograft for hair transplantation for over 7 years. Since we have pioneering this procedure from the start we have one of the largest experience in the world. Having experienced team we are able to offer mega-sessions of up to 4000 follicular units (800-10 000 hair). These large sessions are typically done over 2 consecutive days. Please review before after photographs of the patiens from the clnic you are considering. This is the best way to evaluate the results

Not uncommon to take approximately 2,000 grafts during a procedure and take 3 - 8 hours.

One of the best features of the NeoGraft procedure is that many grafts can be taken and transplanted on the head, as long as there is ample donor hair density. It is not uncommon to take approximately 2,000 grafts during a procedure. Of course, the more grafts that are extracted, the longer the procedure will take. In general, a NeoGraft procedure will take between 3-8 hours.

Neograft quicker?

Neograft is not necessarily quicker but the donor site is so much better than strip. 2000 grafts can be taken and transplanted depending on your donor site density. Results are excellent and down time is so much less than strip.

Neograft is not necessarily quicker or better.

Some doctors who don't use the Neograft can be twice as fast.
Some doctors can be twice as slow.

It all depends on the doctor, not the instrument they use.

Your results will also depend on the doctor, not the tool (not Neograft, not ARTAS, not SAFE, not FUE)

Neograft Results

Neograft is much quicker and has a higher success rate than other hair transplant systems.  Using the Neograft technology, technicians are able to transplant ~3000 grafts in one sitting. Of those 3000 grafts 93%-98% of those grafts will be successful.

Available donor sites

Through FUE ( Follicular unit extraction), hair is typically harvested from the back of the head, one by one and then is put to fill in the areas of hair loss. Your question really depends on how dense the hair is in the back. Also, how many grafts is needed.  The graft survival rate is 92-98% and there is little to no scar. I hope this answers your question. Good luck!

Depends on your donor area

The amount of hair you can transplant depends on how much hair you have to give. This depends on the area and density of the donor area. You cannot take too many follicles or you will make the donor area too thin. It is " robbing Peter to pay Paul". A computer analysis can be performed to calculate the donor hair that can be taken and an estimate of the grafted area can be made as well.
