  1. DAR Had NeoGraft

    I had NeoGraft 22 months ago and had 600 grafts done. What a difference it made. I am preparing for 1500 to 2000 more by the end of the year. All my grafts survived and your post of concerns just doesn’t jive – at least for me. A plastic surgeon and his staff worked on me. It was a great procedure. FUE is the future. I think NeoGraft has made it possible for more physicians to offer this procedure and in the end, the patients WIN…Competition is good.
    Your article seems so against NeoGraft – while every other device mentioned is more positive. Why? Do you know that a simple search on google for NeoGraft shows really well tranied plastics and dermatologist and cosmetic surgeons who provide. These doctors are the best of the best….not the case with other device owners and the general population of the more established hair restoration providers…most D.O., family, etc. I love the USA because we can all have an opinion…and my opinion of yours is not good.

    Dar,

    NeoGraft is just a tool, not a procedure. Thus, to say you had “NeoGraft” 22 months ago is not an accurate statement. What you had 22 months ago is an FUE procedure by a surgeon who happened to be using the NeoGraft Machine.

    You sound a lot more like someone promoting the NeoGraft than a genuine patient who’s interested in sharing his experience and opinion. Thus, if you work for NeoGraft, I suggest being honest about it for the sake of open and transparent discussion.

    The NeoGraft Machine, in an expert physicians hands may indeed be an excellent tool. But it is not a replacement for a qualified physician. Unfortunately, NeoGraft started a campaign some time ago suggesting that neophyte surgeons or non-surgeons(those with little or no experience) could use their device and generate results on par with with leading physicians. This generated a significant amount of concern since a tool is only as good as the one who uses it.

    If you are indeed a satisfied patient, congratulations. I encourage you to share your experience, your physician’s name and your photos on our popular hair loss discussion forum.

    Best wishes,

    Bill

    The comments above are well stated. NeoGraft the machine is a true marvel. Utilizing sharp punches, the suction extraction provides minimal depth extractions, and not only decreases follicular transection, but such minimal depth causes transections that do occur to be inconsequential in that they are not likely to cause termination of the hair follicle.

    This said, the NeoGraft machine is a surgical instrument, and should be used by surgeons only. Many medical decisions are made during the process of extraction, and this should not be delegated to unlicensed technicians. Hair transplanation in general has a long history of delegation of the surgical procedure, so it should come at no surprise that this has occurred. But it should no longer be allowed, and prospective patients should know before agreeing to a procedure what role the physician is playing during the procedure.

    You can read more about the Choi technique and other FUE implantation techniques and devices by visiting “FUE Hair Transplant: Implantation Devices and Methods“.

    I hope this helps.
