How Does it Work?
The mechanical NeoGraft system works by harvesting individual hair follicles using controlled pneumatic pressure. This system avoids the twisting and pulling motions that are typical with other manual follicle-extraction procedures and increases the success rate. After the donor hair follicles are harvested, they are then pneumatically implanted into the thinning area. The newly implanted follicles then re-integrate into your scalp and grow naturally, restoring hair to a balding or thinning area.
What are the types of techniques used?
Earlier hair transplant techniques involved strip harvesting, in which a portion of your scalp is removed to harvest the follicles, leaving an unsightly linear scar on the back of the scalp. More modern follicle-extraction techniques have enabled surgeons to extract follicles individually, avoiding the vertical scar, as well as the discomfort and recovery time associated with strip harvesting. NeoGraft takes follicle-extraction to the next level by automating the harvesting and implantation process with a patented system, increasing the speed, comfort, and providing a higher success rate.

Benefits of NeoGraft Hair Restoration
Our Beverly Hills hair transplant procedure has several benefits:
- NeoGraft produces a natural hairline. Unlike earlier hair transplant surgeries that created an unnatural look, with the transplanted follicles appearing row by row, NeoGraft implants follicles in batches of one-to-four units to create a natural-looking hairline that looks completely natural.
- NeoGraft is minimally invasive. There are no scalpels or staples used in NeoGraft because the follicles are extracted singly, utilizing an advanced extraction and implantation system.
- NeoGraft is more comfortable. NeoGraft is less painful and more comfortable than traditional hair transplant surgeries, whether manual follicle transplant or strip harvesting. Patients typically report that during both the process and the recovery, they feel little-to-no pain.
- NeoGraft has a short recovery period. Patients are typically able to resume normal activities in just a few days after receiving NeoGraft. Within seven to ten days, the newly implanted hair follicles are flourishing in the new location on your scalp, and the tiny extraction sites fully healed.
- NeoGraft helps fix earlier hair transplant scars. With the ability to harvest and implant individual follicles, NeoGraft can be used to hide the scars from a traditional hair transplant in the past.
However, NeoGraft is a transplant surgery – meaning that you will retain the same number of hair follicles on your head. You must keep a reasonable cosmetic goal in mind – no hair transplant surgery will restore your teenage head of hair. The hair on the back of your scalp is not genetically programmed for balding, and if you retain thick, healthy hair in that area, this procedure produces excellent results.
Who is a Candidate?
Anyone who is in good health and has moderate hair loss is a candidate, so long as they also have sufficient donor hair on the back of their scalp to transplant into the balding areas. Anyone with enough donor hair, high hair density and fullness can usually expect excellent results with NeoGraft hair restoration from Dr. Aminpour.
Recovery After NeoGraft Hair Restoration
Most patients report little or no pain either during or after the procedure. Recovery time is minimal, and you will be able to resume your usual activities within a few days, with the implanted hair follicles firmly rooted in the scalp an average of seven to ten days. You will need some patience to enjoy your new look, as it will take four to six months to see the follicles begin to produce healthy, thick strands of hair.

NeoGraft Frequently Asked Questions
When will I see results?
Once the newly grafted hair follicles are implanted into your scalp, they will remain in place for about two to three weeks before shedding. After shedding, the new growth will start in three to four months, and your hair will then continue to grow normally. The waiting period is typical of all hair transplant procedures.
Are there any risks involved?
Because NeoGraft involves only very tiny extraction points, there are no serious risks associated with the procedure. Any minor complications that could arise are very rare.
How long do the results last?
NeoGraft is a transplant procedure with lifelong results – your body assimilates and continues to grow the hair transplanted follicles. However, the body’s natural hair loss progression does not stop with transplant surgery, and some people will need continued maintenance and another treatment in future years if male pattern balding advances.
Is this procedure suitable for both men and women?
Yes. Because NeoGraft is a minimally invasive procedure, it is a good option for both men and women that are looking to restore hair to balding or thinning areas at the hairline, crown, or to add hair to thinning areas of the scalp.
How do I prepare for the procedure?
No real preparation is necessary, though it is helpful if your hair is relatively short. As part of the procedure, the small donor area is shaved in preparation for follicle extraction. If you have long hair, the harvest areas will be hidden by your remaining hair. If you wish to learn more, do not hesitate to contact us for more information.
