Shaft Medical proudly offers NeoGraftTM Automated FUE hair transplantation, the most current and innovative technique for hair restoration. Automated FUE, follicular unit extraction, is a technique developed by top international transplant surgeons and has been used in Europe for over a decade. Approved by the FDA for over 2 years, patients can now benefit from this advanced technique that provides a natural youthful appearance without a linear scar, sutures, or staples.
Hair loss affects approximately 35 million men and 21 million women in the United States alone. More than 40 percent of men will have noticeably thinning hair by the age of 35, while 65 percent of women will have hair loss by 60.
Hair loss can occur in other areas too. A thin or asymmetrical set of eyebrows can be an important issue for both men and women. Eyebrows are important to show facial expressions to help communicate. An eyebrow hair transplantation can permanently create thicker, youthful looking brows. NeoGraftTM FUE can also help fill bald spots in mustaches and beards.
The 'traditional' strip method uses a technique where a large section of scalp (strip) is cut, and then sewn back together after the hair follicles are harvested. The FDA-approved NeoGraftTM device utilizes controlled pneumatic pressure to safely and accurately remove hair follicles, or grafts, from the back of the head and implant them into balding areas. This technique keeps the risk of damaging the follicle to an absolute minimum during extraction and re-implantation. The grafts can be separated into units of 1-4 hairs, providing a more natural appearance, and not the old "plug" look.
