If you have never considered hair restoration, now is the time. Physicians skilled in hair restoration today can provide patients with a very natural looking head of hair. The most permanent solution for hair loss remains the surgical hair transplant. But you can forget painful linear harvesting or “strip” surgeries of the past - requiring anesthesia and extended recovery time – only to result in rows of unnatural-looking hair plugs, stitches, staples and unsightly scarring. Hair transplantation technology has come a long way in the last decade. Techniques have improved vastly and non-invasive technologies have been developed that are making the now nearly-antiquated strip procedure increasingly obsolete.
Neograft Hair Transplant
FUE using NeoGraft has become the game-changer in the field of hair transplant surgery. FUE – known as follicular unit extraction – is the latest and least invasive hair restoration procedure. With FUE, healthy hair follicles are individually harvested from the back of your head and “seeded” into your hair line or crown without using a scalpel or stitches.
Originally performed manually by a surgeon, FUE was time-consuming and could be prohibitively expensive. The emergence of NeoGraft revolutionized the technology.
What is Neograft?
NeoGraft is a sophisticated state-of-the-art surgical instrument that performs automated follicular unit extraction – increasing efficiency and precision both. The NeoGraft device removes or “harvests” hair follicles rapidly and without any significant trauma.
Now, rather than multiple time-consuming treatments over years, you can have up to 3000 individual hair grafts performed in just one session. The NeoGraft equipment standardizes how the grafts are removed, allowing for better grafts that have higher survival rates.
NeoGraft is the first FDA-approved automated hair transplant device utilizing the FUE (follicular unit extraction) method.
FUE using NeoGraft is performed under local anesthetic with minimal downtime and most importantly no visible linear transverse scar across the back portion of the head. You can return to work usually within three days and resume your active lifestyle almost without interruption.
NeoGraft bridges the gap between the hand-held method of follicular unit extraction and some of the fully-automatic robotic devices being used. It has propelled hair restoration technology into the 21st century without relinquishing human control to a completely robotic procedure.
What about NeoGraft Scars?
At Asim Medical, you can undergo this scar-free procedure with negligible down time and a higher graft-survival rate than traditional strip surgery. The medical and hair restoration practice at Asim Medical is dedicated to the science and art of hair restoration, integrating the latest medical technology with regenerative PRP and stem cell therapies to precipitate new blood flow.
Always on the cutting edge, Asim Medical was one of the earliest hair transplant practices to incorporate Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) and NeoGraft. For proven results, increased confidence and a hairline that you have not seen in years, contact us online or call (407) 692-1965 today!
The Problem of Hair Loss (Male & Female Pattern Baldness)
Scientists are coming to understand that most baldness – especially male-pattern baldness – is precipitated by a phenomenon known as “miniaturization” whereby certain hair follicles may be genetically oversensitive to a hormone called DHT. DHT is formed by the interaction of testosterone and enzymes in the follicle oil glands. DHT binds to receptors in the hair follicles and gradually reduces their size and thickness until the follicle eventually produces no hair at all and the area becomes bald.
Androgenetic alopecia - commonly known as male-pattern baldness or female-pattern baldness - is the most common cause of hair loss. Affecting 7 out of 10 men, or roughly 50 million men, male-pattern baldness is usually hereditary and cases are seen as early as adolescence. By age 50, over 85 percent of men suffer hair loss. It begins above the temples and recedes over time, forming the classic M shape. For the almost 30 million women affected by hair loss, the hair tends to thin, especially after menopause. Causes of female pattern baldness are less clear but may be associated with decreasing female hormones.
The good news for you is that with today’s minimally-invasive hair transplant techniques, true restoration of your hairline is within reach and the results couldn't be more natural.
Reshaping the Fue-ture of Hair Restoration
The FUE method involves selecting the hair follicles that are usually DHT-resistant from the back of your head (the “donor site”) where hair growth is more prolific and relocating them to the areas of hair loss at the front and top of your head where most hair is lost.
With FUE, the hair follicles are removed in their naturally occurring groupings or “micrografts” of about 1-4 hairs. These micrografts allow for greater hairline design, reduced harvest time, better graft handling and better viability of the grafts – achieving an artistically-natural result quickly.
FUE was originally performed manually by hair-transplant surgeons, but NeoGraft has made the FUE method more precise, efficient and affordable.
Top Ten Reasons to Choose FUE with NeoGraft Technology
FUE with NeoGraft technology is not only the most cutting-edge but it is the most safe and effective way to restore your lost hairline. Here are top 10 reasons why you should choose FUE with NeoGraft:
Least invasive procedure for hair transplant surgery
You will feel little or no discomfort
You will not need stitches or staples
You will not have the linear transverse scar that comes with strip surgery, and your hair can be worn short or even shaved
There is no numbness where the donor hair is harvested
You will experience considerably shorter recovery time and can return to your active lifestyle within days
You will have fewer activity restrictions after your procedure
You typically can return to work within three days (and most patients return the next day)
You will be able to transplant twice as many hair grafts as manual FUE
The procedure reduces manual FUE hair transplant costs by as much as half
How Much Does NeoGraft Cost?
The cost for NeoGraft FUE is affordable and Asim Medical offers interest-free financing. Even with available financing and extended payment plans, the FUE procedure may be cost prohibitive for some patients. However, NeoGraft is increasingly making FUE procedures more efficient year-by-year.
On average, NeoGraft cost is $4.50 to $7.00 per graft. At Asim Medical, we avoid the cost of a middle-man, so the cost for each graft is only $2.80 to $3.00 per graft. The majority of FUE hair transplant procedures involve 2000 to 2500 grafts, with a total cost ranging from $5,500 to $7,500.
It is important to compare prices considering the number of actual hair grafts being performed in the procedure. A $5,000 procedure with 1000 hair grafts is not cheaper than a $6,000 procedure with 2500 hair grafts. If you don’t ask the right questions, you could end up paying $10 or more per graft, not the $3 cost per graft at Asim Medical.
You should also be cautious of practices that attach additional fees to the procedure or try to market overpriced and ineffective hair growth serums and supplements.
Why Choose Asim Medical?
Asim Medical Center 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. Dr. Rahman was one of the earliest hair transplant physicians to incorporate Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) into his Orlando hair restoration practice with PRP. In addition, Dr. Rahman was one of the first board-certified physicians to routinely use highly concentrated PRP with FUE using NeoGraft for increased blood flow and faster healing.
Asim Medical offers complimentary consultations to patients considering hair restoration treatment. NeoGraft is a phenomenal tool for harvesting a large number of hair grafts (<2000) in the quickest amount of time with the greatest precision. However, it is absolutely dependent on the skill of the individual operating the equipment. In choosing a FUE NeoGraft physician, you must consider the experience and reputation of the physician.
The role of the physician in any hair transplant procedure is especially relevant in creating natural-looking results. Your physician is responsible for creating the recipient sites and performing the hairline design. The NeoGraft technology has a steep learning curve. In the right hands, it can offer you a safer and more effective alternative to traditional strip surgery, but choosing those hands is the most important decision you will make.
The NeoGraft device has allowed the surgical team at Asim Medical to harvest and implant hair follicles accurately and efficiently with excellent hair growth rates.

NEOGRAFT FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQ)
WHAT IS NEOGRAFT HAIR TRANSPLANT?
NeoGraft is a cutting-edge device which facilitates the harvesting of hair follicles for the follicular unit extraction (FUE) hair-transplant procedure. NeoGraft can dramatically improve the accuracy and speed of previously-utilized FUE manual-extraction instruments.
WHAT IS A "FUE" HAIR TRANSPLANT?
FUE – 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, leaving no linear scarring at the back of the scalp.
WHAT ARE THE MAIN BENEFITS OF FUE OVER LINEAR HARVESTING?
FUE transplants heal faster and more comfortably than linear-harvest techniques (aka strip surgeries) 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 THE BENEFITS OF NEOGRAFT OVER MANUAL FUE TECHNIQUES?
The highly ergonomic mechanical NeoGraft device works as a natural extension of the physician’s 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 who want the least amount of activity restriction (e.g., athletes) after a hair transplant procedure, may be good candidates for FUE with NeoGraft™. FUE can also be used for scar camouflage procedures – for any scars but especially for scars on patients who have had prior linear harvests. FUE with NeoGraft is also effective 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 TRANSPLANT 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 realm of hair growth results, but the manner, speed and precision in which the donor area is harvested, and the recovery time that follows the procedure.
IS FUE WITH 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.
WILL I NEED A TOTAL 'BUZZ-CUT' TO HAVE AN FUE WITH 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 percent of transplanted follicles will survive and grow. At Asim Medical, we are always striving for 100 percent! (Note: Dr. Rahman's specialized use of "bioenhancements' with every FUE procedure along with careful handling of the grafts may be part of the reason 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.
