The facts are that 40 million men and approximately 21 million women suffer from male/female pattern baldness or thinning hair. Due to the current job market competition and escalating social media, awareness about hair loss seems to be at an all-time high. The good news is that with today’s minimally invasive hair transplant techniques results couldn’t be more natural.
Dr. Rahman's medical and hair restoration practice is dedicated to the art and science of hair restoration, integrating medical, regenerative PRP and stem cell therapies, and surgical restoration in treating hair loss in men and women. He was won of the earliest hair transplant physicians to incorporate Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) into his practice with PRP.
Asim Medical Center is proud to offer NeoGraft Hair Transplant System. We offer complimentary consultations to patients considering hair restoration treatments. Dr. Rahman was one of the first Board Certified physicians to routinely use highly concentrated PRP with Neograft for a faster healing process. Dr. Asim Rahman is board certified Anti-Aging, Functional Medicine and an active member of the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine.
NeoGraft FUE- Frequently Asked Questions
What is NeoGraft Hair Transplant? NeoGraft is a new device which facilitates the harvesting of follicles during an “FUE”-type hair transplant, dramatically improving the accuracy and speed over previously-used FUE manual extraction instruments.
What is an “FUE” hair transplant? “F.U.E.” or “Follicular-Unit Extraction” is an advanced, minimally-invasive hair transplant method which allows for the harvesting of individual follicles from the donor area without a scalpel or stitches, and therefore leaves no linear scar.
What are the main benefits of FUE over linear harvesting? It is well-accepted that FUE transplants can heal faster and more comfortably than linear-harvest techniques using a scalpel and requiring stitches. With FUE, once healing is complete, the patient has the option of wearing a very short haircut without the worry of a tell-tale linear scar. Without the need for stitches, downtime is shorter with fewer activity restrictions post-operatively.
What are some benefits of NeoGraft over manual FUE techniques? The highly ergonomic mechanical NeoGraft device works as a natural extension of the surgeons’ hand, allowing for faster and more accurate harvesting of hair follicles. NeoGraft patients now reach their goal with less time in the procedure room or fewer FUE procedures altogether.
Who is a good candidate for FUE using NeoGraft? Patients who would like the option of wearing a very short haircut in the back or sides of their scalp, or those who want the least amount of activity restriction (e.g. athletes) after their hair transplant procedure, may be good candidates for FUE with NeoGraft™. FUE can also be used for ‘scar camouflage’ procedures for patients who have had prior linear harvests, as well as for body hair transplants.
What are the major cost differences between FUE and linear-harvest hair transplant procedures? The fee structure for FUE hair transplant procedures reflect the more detailed and intricate nature of those procedures compared to those performed with a linear harvest.
Are the final transplanted ‘results’ any different with FUE/NeoGraft than those achieved with linear harvesting? No. FUE procedures, by default, yield grafts that contain mainly one, two or three follicles called “follicular units.” Linear harvests, which are then microscopically dissected by a team into grafts of one, two or three follicles, would also yield similar ‘follicular-unit’ grafts. Provided that in each case the grafts are implanted with care, artistry and precision into the recipient area, the final transplanted results with FUE would be identical to those accomplished with a linear harvest. If the donor area is harvested with careful technique, healthy hair follicles will be accurately obtained. The main difference versus a linear or strip surgery is not in the area of hair growth, but how the donor area is harvested.
Is FUE/NeoGraft suitable for both men and women? Yes. Because FUE/NeoGraft is a minimally-invasive procedure, it is a viable option for both men and women looking to restore their own living and growing hair with transplantation. For women, harvesting is performed with a hidden or “stealth” shave in the donor area which is covered by the surrounding existing hair.
Do I have to get a total ‘buzz-cut’ to have an FUE/NeoGraft procedure? No, but it helps. If your donor hair is long enough, harvesting using the FUE/NeoGraft can be done by shaving small areas which can be covered by your other, existing donor hair. For maximum yield however, a buzz-cut is recommended in the donor area.
Am I a good candidate for a hair transplant procedure using FUE/NeoGraft? The best way to determine whether you are a candidate for hair transplant using FUE/NeoGraft is a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Rahman
It is commonly accepted that more than 97% of transplanted follicles will survive and grow. At Asim Medical , we are always striving for 100%! (Note: Dr. Rahman’s specialized use of “bioenhancements’ with every FUE procedure along with careful handling of the grafts may be some of the reasons that excellent growth is consistently obtained.)
The NeoGraft is a “state of the art” solution for hair loss and is the first minimally invasive automatic hair transplant system. It is the first FDA approved automated hair transplant device utilizing the FUE (follicular unit extraction) method.
