Why Dr. Brownell Works Exclusively with NeoGraft
Two primary methods of hair restoration surgery exist today. The first and oldest method is Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT). With FUT, a Hair Restoration Surgeon removes a section of skin containing hair follicles from the back of the patient’s scalp.
He or she then extracts the follicles from the donor strip to prepare them for transplant to the top of the scalp. The major drawback of this method is that is leaves a long linear scar from one end of the patient’s scalp to the other. This makes it impossible for men to wear their hair closely shaved in addition to making them feel self-conscious.
Physicians performing Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) hair transplant surgery harvest donor hair follicles using a circular punch approximately one millimeter in diameter.
There is no need for cutting or suturing and the circular impressions left on the back of the patient’s scalp disappear within a week.
FUE also offers minimal bleeding and pain as well as a shorter recovery period. In fact, most patients return to work the following day. However, it too has one major drawback, it is extremely time consuming to remove one follicle at a time.
NeoGraft automates this process and makes it possible for Connecticut Hair Restoration Surgeon Dana Brownell to extract several hundred follicular units in one hour. When FUE is performed manually, it can take an entire day to retrieve that many hair follicles. Men and women who undergo FUE with NeoGraft typically only need to come to Dr. Brownell’s clinic for one session rather than the two or three sessions required with manual FUE. The shorter treatment time is just one of the many advantages of using NeoGraft.
