Hair Restoration Surgery On the Increase GENEVA, IL. – June 24, 2009. Despite the worldwide economic downturn in 2008, more people continued to seek treatment for hair loss, according to statistics released today from a recent member survey conducted by the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS) – the world’s leading medical authority on hair loss and hair restoration. The extrapolated worldwide number of hair restoration patients treated in 2008 was approximately 811,363 (236,468 surgical patients and 574,894 non-surgical patients) – up 26% from 2006. This significant increase in hair restoration patients coincides with a 12% jump in the total number of surgical hair restoration procedures worldwide – from 225,779 procedures in 2006 to 252,002 procedures in 2008.

FUE with Neograft allows a minimally-invasive approach to hair transplantation with no visible linear scar. This is a 0.8mm limited depth instrument making a scoring incision around the graft. To maximize the harvested yield per procedure, patients are encouraged to allow us to 'buzz' their hair to a 'zero' with an electric clipper. A 'zero' length on a clipper is actually approximately 3mm

The extracted grafts are examined and sorted by intact follicles per graft. Grafts with transected follicles are counted and tracked for quality-control purposes. This handful of grafts was obtained approximately 1/3 of the way through the Neograft FUE hair transplant procedure. FUE grafts are typically smaller than microscopicallydissected micrografts. Therefore, they require extra care and attention to remain viable for implantation. One of the features of the NeoGraft FUE automated hair transplant device is the fact that two separate pneumatic implanters can be used for gentle, yet efficient implantation of the harvested grafts. A foot pedal activates alternating negative and positive pressure which moves a small piston in the implanter. When properly aligned, the graft is pushed with gentle pressure into the recipient sites. No forceps, which can potentially cause crushing damage to the follicles/grafts, are used. This series of photos shows the 'no-touch' implantation of several grafts during the First NeoGraft Live Surgery Workshop held at Bauman Medical Group -- Boca Raton, FL in June of 2009


The major advantage of any FUE procedure is the lack of a linear scar. The tiny 0.8mm harvest sites close 50% in size within 24 hours and can be completely undetectable within a weeks time, depending on the quality of hair in the donor area. Eventually, when the surrounding hair reaches a certain length (approximately 8mm) the area is completely camouflaged.


This is an updated photo to reflect the status of the recipient area at post-op day #8. Please note that although the transplanted area appears 'full,' it is expected that the transplanted hairs will shed within the next few days and then begin to regrow within 6-12 weeks. Half of the result should be visible at 6 months, full results in 12 months.

NeoGraft/FUE hair transplant patient, Alex, 7 months after his procedure of 1600 FUE grafts placed in a single one-day session. At the 6-9 month mark, it is generally accepted that 50-75% of the final results are noticeable. Alex's procedure was performed at www.baumanmedical.com


51 year old male with Andropecia Allopecia, Norwood Grade 5. Patient received 2380 grafts by means of automated FUE with NeoGraft. The results shown are after six (6) months. Maximal results typically seen twelve (12) months after procedure.
