Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) - NeoGraft
Non-Invasive. Affordable. Proven. If you’re thinking Frankenstein – like hair plugs and surgery techniques from decades ago ... think again!
NeoGraft’s minimally invasive Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) and Transfer hair transplant procedure uses state-of-the-art technology to gently remove individual hair follicle units from the back of the head in their naturally occurring groupings of about 1 to 4 hairs.
Next, the follicles are sterilized, treated and microscopically sorted based on individual characteristics like size, shape, contour, natural color and thickness. Dr. Kanosky and his team of expert transplant technicians then artistically arrange and implant each individual follicular unit in an aesthetically natural pattern to complement the facial structure and enhance the current hairline filling in the area of the scalp where the hair is most needed.
“We can help men and women both with this new procedure. It’s a natural technique that means we’re able to prevent you from having any big scars, downtime, or things that keep you from going back to your daily routine. And the results are very good!”

How NeoGraft® Works
STEP 1:Extraction of Hair Follicles After the doctor applies numbing medicine to the donor site, extraction or harvesting begins. Individual follicular units of one to four hairs are removed from the donor region. Hair is most often harvested from the area in the back of your head between your ears, below your crown, above the nape of your neck, because the hair in this region is genetically programmed to resist testosterone; thus, it continues to grow throughout your lifetime. The experienced physician employs the NeoGraft device cores each individual follicular unit and then gently removes it with simultaneous suction.
STEP 2:Counting, Trimming and Sorting of Grafts After the follicular units are extracted, they are carefully separated by size. The average follicular unit contains anywhere from one to three hairs. Dr. Kanosky and his team know that it is imperative to separate single hair units from multiple hair units in order to create a natural-appearing result.
STEP 3:Recipient Site Creation The location for the newly harvested transplants is prepared based on the physician’s expertise with medical and aesthetic procedures. Recipient sites (the actual microscopic slit where the harvested hair will be “planted” are created in the desired areas of balding or thinning, utilizing the proper depth and angulation to ensure the health, vitality, and viability of each graft. Dr. Kanosky will use his experience as a hair transplant surgeon and more than 24 years of cosmetic plastic surgery experience to design gender and age-appropriate hairline that is specific to you.
STEP 4:Placement of the Hair Grafts Each individual follicular unit is then implanted into each of the recipient sites in order to achieve the desired pattern, thickness, and appearance. Because hair grows in different angles depending on where it is on your head, the proper depth and angulation are critical to ensure the grafts take root and grow into a natural hairline. Your personal plastic surgeon will be there designing a hairline that is appropriate for your age and looks completely natural.

Frequently Asked Questions
“F.U.E.” or “Follicular-Unit Extraction” is an advanced, minimally-invasive hair transplant method which allows for the harvesting of individual follicles from the donor area without a scalpel incision or the necessary stitches, and therefore leaves no linear scar.
NeoGraft uses controlled pneumatic pressure to slide out the graft smoothly, so there is no pulling or twisting that can risk damaging the graft. Your grafts can be re-implanted sooner, keeping them more robust and resulting in a natural-looking hairline.
The highly ergonomic mechanical NeoGraft system works as a natural extension of the surgeons’ hand, allowing for faster and more accurate harvesting of hair follicles. NeoGraft patients now reach their goal with less time in the procedure room or fewer FUE procedures altogether.
Patients who would like the option of wearing a very short haircut in the back or sides of their scalp, or those who want the least amount of activity restriction (e.g. athletes) after their hair transplant procedure, may be good candidates for FUE. The NeoGraft FUE System can also be used to camouflage a scar on patients who have had prior linear harvests, as well as for body hair transplants.
Candidates for hair restoration surgery are those individuals in good health with moderate hair loss and sufficient donor hair on the back of the scalp to transplant into the balding areas. Those with more donor hair, greater hair density and fullness can typically expect fuller results. It is also important that you have reasonable cosmetic goals. Hair transplantation can achieve very good, natural results but cannot restore your hair to the density you had as a teenager. Dr. Kanosky will assess the amount of coverage needed to give you the appearance you desire.
The science behind grafting is simple. Hair follicles are taken from the hair in the back of the head that naturally continues to grow. The follicles that hold your transplanted hair are living tissues that grow cyclically. Once the normal hair follicle has been implanted into the balding area, the grafted hair will stay in place for about two to three weeks before shedding – this is normal and an important part of the new growth process. After shedding, the new growth will begin in 3-4 months and your hair will continue to grow normally. More importantly, your results will look healthy and natural.
Hair loss does not stop after transplantation – some people will need continued maintenance and further sessions will likely be required, particularly if your balding pattern continues with age. Progressive hair loss or the desire for more density may require more transplants. An estimate of balding pattern and the number of procedures needed will be discussed during the consultation with your doctor.
Many guys do cut their hair short before a transplant so all of their hair will growth out at the same length at the same time. But if you wear your hair long, harvesting using the FUE/NeoGraft can be done by shaving small areas which can be covered by your other, existing hair. If you wear your hair short, it helps to shave it close for maximum yield. It looks more natural sooner as the transplanted grafts are short as well.
