West End Hair Restoration is a safe place for anyone undergoing gender-affirming procedures. A vital one for some of our transgender clients is their hair. Whether it’s the ability to grow facial hair or treat bald and thinning patches, NeoGraft might be the right solution for you.
What is NeoGraft?
NeoGraft is a type of follicular unit extraction (FUE) performed using a local anesthetic. The technology removes healthy hair follicles from the back of the head, transplanting them to areas on the scalp or face.
Since the treatment uses pneumatic pressure the hair removal and transplants are precise and relatively pain-free. You may feel some discomfort during the procedure. Most NeoGraft treatments take around five to eight hours. The amount of time depends on each client’s unique goals.
Unlike surgical transplants, recovering from NeoGraft typically takes only three to five days. You may experience some bruising and swelling at the treated sites, but it typically subsides after a few days.
Is There a Downside to NeoGraft?
The primary downside to the NeoGraft procedure is waiting for the shaved hair around the donor site to regrow. Some clients can hide the shaved area underneath longer hair, but it will take several months for the growth to catch up.
Some trans and cis men may cut their hair to the approximate length of the shaved area, before the treatment. It makes it a little easier for the growth to come in even.
What are the Benefits of NeoGraft?
The NeoGraft treatment is something for everyone that is experiencing patterned baldness or thinning hair. It is safe with limited potential risks, and it is also virtually pain-free.
You get natural results since the transplanted hair is removed from the back of your head. It can also help women who are transitioning to male to create a more masculine appearance.
