STEP 1: DESIGNING THE HAIRLINE
Before getting started, our skilled hair technician will establish your preferred hairline and recipient sites, ensuring they align with the prescribed orientation, angle, and direction as per your personalized hair transplantation plan. Using a fine-tipped marker, the technician will draw out your new hairline, offering you one last inspection and the possibility to make adjustments before the the procedure begins.
STEP 2: INJECTION & PREPARATION
At www.alexeshazenmd.com, we specialize in plastic surgery, specifically hair transplants. Our goal is to provide our patients with the best care and the most up-to-date information to make sure they are well-informed prior to any procedure. We understand that hair transplants can be a stressful process for some, which is why we provide helpful resources on our site, such as how to prepare for a hair transplant, designing a hairline for a neograft hair transplant, as well as information on the different hairlines available for both female and male patients.
STEP 3: FOLLICULAR UNIT EXTRACTION WITH NEOGRAFT
The extraction process is straightforward yet time-consuming. Our skilled NeoGraft Master Technician uses an advanced wand powered by pneumatic pressure to delicately extract donor hair from the back of the head. This specific area is particularly resilient to hair loss for individuals experiencing male pattern baldness. Conversely, for females, we identify alternative areas where hair can be safely collected. To maximize the likelihood of success, we meticulously select grafts that possess consistent lengths and diameters. Throughout this phase, you will be positioned on your stomach in a resting position but don't worry, your comfort is a priority and we schedule regular breaks to allow you to stretch, hydrate, and freely move around as needed.
STEP 4: GRAFT PLACEMENT PREPARATION
The implantation process starts by using the NeoGraft device to make tiny punctures in the new recipient sites on the scalp. These tiny punctures serve as receptacles for the grafts to be inserted with reversed pneumatic pressure. As one can imagine, this step requires a considerable amount of time, even though our experienced technicians are adept at performing these transplantations efficiently.
STEP 5: PLACEMENT OF GRAFTS
To ensure optimal transplantation outcomes, the follicular units, also known as grafts, undergo a meticulous sorting process based on their sizes before being introduced into the areas of your scalp affected by hair thinning or baldness. These grafts are categorized into groupings of 1-follicle, 2-follicle, 3-follicle, and 4-follicle units, depending on the targeted regions they will be transplanted into. Each graft is painstakingly extracted and individually implanted with great precision to achieve the desired results.
