NeoGraft® at a Glance
NeoGraft® is a minimally invasive procedure. The FUE method involves the extraction of healthy hair follicles from the back of the scalp and transplanting them to areas where baldness and thinning occur. The transplanted hairs likely fall out but the healthy follicles should produce new hair in about three to six months. Following that, hair should continue to grow on its own.
Length of surgery: 4-6 hours
Length of recovery: A few days to a week
“It’s been a little over a year since I went in to see Dr. Wudel for my Neograft procedure and I couldn’t be any more satisfied with my results. Everyone that was involved from Dr Wudel to the technicians were great and they made sure I was fine the whole time. If anyone is interested in hair restoration, I highly recommend Dr. Wudel and his practice.”
Frequently Asked Questions
