Results to Expect with Neograft
If you decide you would like to have the Neograft device used for your FUE procedure, please make sure the Physician is doing the entire graft extraction procedure and not the unlicensed "Neografters/Technicians" that go to the clinics and perform the surgery.
This happens commonly around my practice and patients end up making it into my office with poor results due to assistants performing the procedure asking me to repair their unsatisfactory procedure.
Results of NeoGraft FUE system can take up to a year, creating natural, healthy and strong hair.
It is important to realize that after the procedure, the implanted hair follicles will remain for several weeks, but then begin to shed. This normal and needed. The new hair will begin growing within 4-6 months and will continue to grow normally after that. Full results can take up to a year. As the new hair regrows, the results will be natural, healthy and strong.
Because this procedure does not require large strips of scalp removal, as with traditional transplant procedures, there is very little risk of unsightly scarring. The surgeon should provide an artistic and aesthetic eye, transplanting the hair follicles into a pleasing and natural looking fashion. Clients are left with greater hair coverage without any evidence of having anything done.
Additionally, patients who have undergone prior strip transplantation surgery can realize great results in the form of ‘scar camouflage.’ The NeoGraft FUE system can cover the surgical marks from prior hair transplants, making the scarring less noticeable and the results more natural.

THE RESULTS depend on the doctor, not the tool (not Neorgraft, not ARTAS, not SAFE, not FUE)
The Neograft terminology is often misused as a type or the name of a surgical technique.
However, "Neograft" tool is just another instrument in carrying out the FUE method of harvesting of hair.
The method of transplanting (putting in) the harvested hair is the same for all type of hair transplant surgeries. A doctor still needs to create a hair line and make the incisions of where he wants the hairs to be transplanted.
The Neograft tool, in essence, is a hollow drill connected to a suction to core and "suck" out a hair follicle. Neograft also has a suction and push rod hand piece to facilitate the implanting of hairs. This technique was first invented and utilized by a French doctor Pascal Boudjema back in the early 1990's.
A similar technique is also utilized by the ARTAS robot, the S.A.F.E. system invented by Dr. Harris, FUE technique and Hair Implanting Pen invented by Dr. Rassman.
Doctors who perform the FUE procedure pick and choose the instrument of their choice.

Result with Neograft
Neograft is a method of Follicular Unit Extraction
Neograft is one method of follicular unit extraction that a transplantation team can use. The ultimate result comes from how many hairs are transplanted that are not injured in the extraction process and how well they are placed in the recipient area. This depends on the skill of the team, the donor area of the patient, and the healing ability of the patient more than whether neograft or some other FUE method is used.
Neograft is a tool
Neograft - results?
how the grafts are taken out
how the grafts are put in
Neograft is a device that helps take grafts out - it is not related to how they are put in. If the surgeon does a great job removing grafts using the Neograft machine and does a bad job putting grafts in the result will still be poor
Neograft is just one of many many tools to extract grafts.
