About Dana Brownell, M.D.
Dana Brownell, M.D. is a board certified Connecticut Hair Restoration Surgeon and the medical director of NeoGraft Hair Restoration located in Westport Connecticut. She is an active member of the American Academy of Aesthetic Medicine, the American Academy of Cosmetic Physicians, and the Aesthetic Practice Association.
As an early proponent of using NeoGraft with Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) hair transplant surgery, Dr. Brownell was the only physician in Connecticut to offer it for quite some time. Since 2014, she has taught other Hair Restoration Surgeons how to use NeoGraft and has offered her clinic as the regional training center.
The Benefits of FUE with NeoGraft
While others in the field of hair restoration continue to offer Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT) and several non-surgical options to treat hair loss, Dr. Brownell uses FUE with NeoGraft exclusively. That is because she strongly believes it is superior to any other hair restoration treatment. Unlike FUT, FUE does not leave a large unsightly scar and it is appropriate for both men and women. Dana Brownell, M.D. even uses FUE with NeoGraft for eyebrow and facial hair restoration.
Benefits of the NeoGraft FUE Hair Restoration System:
- It is minimally invasive and virtually pain-free.
- You do not experience numbness or tightness during or after the procedure.
- No need for Dr. Brownell to use a scalpel and you don’t need stitches after she extracts hair follicles for transfer.
- NeoGraft makes it possible to complete both the extraction and transplant of healthy hair follicles in a single session.
- The harvested hair follicles are the highest quality because they don’t break easily as sometimes happens with manual hair follicle extraction.
- The results appear completely natural and blend in seamlessly with your remaining hair.
- Your new permanent hair will come in fully within six to eight months.
Planning for Your FUE Hair Transplant Surgery
Connecticut Hair Restoration Surgeon Dana Brownell provides a complimentary consultation session to men and women who want to learn more about FUE. At some Hair Restoration Clinics, you may not meet the doctor until the day of your surgery. Instead, you meet with a sales team or patient coordinator for your consultation and pre-op appointments. Dr. Brownell does things differently. She is never too busy to meet with new patients and answer all of their questions about FUE using NeoGraft. Since she already believes in its benefits, she doesn’t feel the need to sell you on them. The only purpose of the meeting is to provide you with information.
When you come in for your FUE procedure with NeoGraft, Dr. Brownell clearly marks the areas on the back of your scalp where she will harvest hair follicles for transplant. She then programs the NeoGraft device for the extraction process. Since NeoGraft uses pneumatic pressure, it removes the hair follicles in a smooth fashion without the twisting and tugging that is sometimes necessary with manual extraction. This creates a much higher follicle survival rate. After she transplants them to the balding areas of your scalp, you can expect fine, fuzzy hair to come in within a few weeks. This quickly falls out to make way for the thick, permanent hair growth that occurs six to eight months later.
Dr. Brownell Cares
Dana Brownell, M.D. finds it personally rewarding to help men and women restore their hair and gain their self-confidence back. People who have not been in your position cannot possibly understand how devastating it can be to lose your hair. Dr. Brownell does understand and she wants to see you re-grow your own natural hair just as much as you do. She provides the method with FUE and NeoGraft and you get to enjoy the results for a lifetime.
