What is a Hair Transplant?
It’s a type of surgery that moves hair you already have to fill an area with thin or no hair. For many people, a hair transplant can help bring back what looks like a fuller head of hair. If thinning up top or going bald really bothers you, the procedure can be one way to feel more confident about your looks.
Hair Transplant Procedure
First, the Dr. Shah cleans your scalp and injects medicine to numb the back of your head. He will use either one of the instruments to perform the hair transplant procedure:
- Follicular unit strip surgery (FUSS)
- Follicular-unit extraction (FUE)
Each involves different preparation process, FUE being less invasive than the FUSS procedure. After that point, both procedures are the same. Once he prepares the grafts, the Dr. Shah cleans and numbs the area where the hair will go, creates holes or slits with a scalpel or needle, and delicately places each graft in one of the holes.

Follicular-Unit Extraction Hair Transplant
“Follicular-Unit Extraction” is also known as “F.U.E.”. This is an advanced, minimally-invasive hair transplant method that allows for the harvesting of individual follicles from the donor area without a scalpel incision or the necessary stitches. Since this method is minimally-invasive, it does not leave a permanent linear scar.
Benefits of the FUE Method
- FUE hair transplant is a very safe, minimally invasive, relatively minor procedure
- Minimal bleeding and fewer complications than with the “strip” method
- Procedure is performed with local anesthetic and no intravenous or intramuscular sedation is required
- Patients experience minimal discomfort, no scalpel incision, no sutures, no linear scar and quick recovery times
- And Much More!
How Long Is the Procedure?
Depending on the size of the transplant you’re getting, the process will take about 4 to 8 hours. You might need another procedure later on if you continue to lose hair or decide you want thicker hair.
Hair Transplant using NeoGraft®
NeoGraft is a new minimally-invasive automated hair transplant system. NeoGraft facilitates the harvesting of follicles during a Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) hair transplant. This method dramatically improves the accuracy and speed compared to previously used manual extraction instruments.
