Hair Transplantation Services
NYU Langone plastic surgeons provide NeoGraft® hair transplantation treatment for people experiencing thinning hair or hair loss.
As part of NeoGraft® treatment, a patient’s own hair is used to manage both male and female pattern baldness. In men, hormonal changes or genetic factors can cause a receding hairline or thinning at the crown of the head. Women generally experience hair thinning at the top and crown of the head as a result of aging, hormonal changes related to menopause, or a family history of female pattern baldness.
How Hair Transplantation Works
During the NeoGraft® procedure, hair follicles are gently removed from the back of the head, where thinning rarely occurs. The follicles are immediately transplanted to the thinning or bald areas of the scalp, ensuring hair is placed at the most natural looking angle.
There is no scalpel incision during NeoGraft® and no scarring. The procedure requires local anesthesia. Most people can return to normal activities the next day.
After the transplant, grafted hair remains in place for two to three weeks before falling out in a natural shedding process. New growth appears within three to four months and continues to grow normally after that point.
The best candidates for treatment are men and women with moderate hair loss who have a good amount of hair available on the back of the head for transplant. The more hair you have available for transplant, the more coverage you can expect.
