POSTED ON TUESDAY, MARCH 18, 2014 AT 2:49 PM  by Dr. Roger Bassin

Happy spring! With the new season comes change and growth for all of nature. If you’re catching spring fever, and want to improve the quality and thickness of your hair growth, consider hair restoration in Tampa. Deciding on a technique for hair transplantation can be an overwhelming undertaking. With numerous procedures available, some more invasive than others, it’s important to know your hair restoration options. Learn more about the traditional strip method for hair restoration and the latest innovation for hair transplantation in Tampa, NeoGraft: 




  Strip Method NeoGraft
Extraction  After removal, hair follicles are handled with forceps to replant them in the desired treatment area, decreasing the follicle survival rate. Using pneumatic pressure, or suction, hair follicles are harvested from the thickest area of a patient’s scalp.
Graft Preparation Once hair follicles have been extracted and a graft is carefully designed, our hair doctor will use very small needles or micro blades to place each graft in the balding area of your head. Even during extraction, hair follicles are kept in a moist, regularly misted, collection canister during NeoGraft.  By keeping follicles in a more stable, sterile environment, survival rate of the follicles is increased.
Implantation  Once hair follicles have been extracted and a graft is carefully designed, our hair doctor will use very small needles or micro blades to place each graft in the balding area of your head. Similarly to extraction, pneumatic pressure is used to smoothly insert hair grafts with precision. This method requires no sutures or scalpels for implantation.  
Recovery After placement, patients may feel a post-op sensation, often described as a “tightness” in the scalp caused by extracted skin. A permanent linear scar may also be noticeable around the extraction area. Results from the traditional strip hair transplant method will begin to be noticed six months or more after surgery, and are transformative.  After NeoGraft, patients experience little to no post-operative pain. Patients have reported seeing results from NeoGraft in as little as three months. These natural-looking results will give you a fuller, thicker head of hair.
