Hair loss is a concern for both men and women. Beginning as early as your 20s and 30s, up to 60% of men suffer from male pattern baldness, and a large percentage of women start to lose their hair in their later years. Thankfully, modern technology makes it possible for Bellevue and Kirkland NeoGraft expert, Dr. Mark Tseng, to perform minimally-invasive hair transplants. With this technology, you can restore a more youthful hairline, fill in balding areas, and treat areas where the hair is thinning.
There are many causes of hair loss, some of which are temporary or even reversible in the early stages. The most common hair loss is called “androgenetic alopecia,” or male pattern baldness and female pattern baldness. It is progressive, with follicles gradually dying out to the point that they can no longer produce hair. Once follicles have stopped growing hair altogether, the only practical solution is a hair transplant.
At Tseng Plastic Surgery in Bellevue and Kirkland NeoGraft is a revolutionary, FDA-approved system that uses pneumatic controls to precisely extract individual hair follicles, immediately transplanted to thinning or balding areas. The NeoGraft automated hair transplantation system is a groundbreaking harvesting system that boasts ultimate comfort and safety with patented "no-touch" implantation technology.
Dr. Tseng's hair restoration with NeoGraft technology in Kirkland provides precise, careful harvesting and placement of hair follicles, which makes for ideal and consistent results. With NeoGraft's technology, each follicle is harvested, one by one, while you are comfortably seated in one of our in-office treatment suites.
The NeoGraft Automated FUE is also a useful procedure for repairing visible linear scars from a previous "strip" surgery. FUE can be used to ‘fill in' or camouflage those old scars by transplanting new follicles into the area.
The "magic" of NeoGraft comes from its "punch and pressure" method of suctioning and extracting follicles in a gentle and precise manner using a specialized handpiece, which preserves the integrity of the follicle and leaves surrounding tissues, nerves, and blood vessels untouched. As an advanced, automated, closed FUE system, NeoGraft assures more follicles can successfully thrive at their new sites.
Each patient's regenerative capabilities are unlocked to promote new hair growth for the most natural-looking results. Earlier methods involved "handling" follicles manually, moving them to a pre-made donor site, and storing them – a lengthy and troublesome process, which led to the unmistakable "hair plug" look. This is not so with Dr. Tseng's NeoGraft hair restoration in Kirkland.
The steps of your NeoGraft experience will include:
After treatment with NeoGraft Kirkland patients should return home and rest for the remainder of the day. There is no required downtime or recovery after NeoGraft. You will be provided with a series of detailed aftercare instructions to ensure the transplanted hair follicles properly integrate with your scalp so they can start growing new, healthy hair.
You can expect the transplanted hairs to shed within the first two weeks – but do not be alarmed. This initial hair loss, called shedding, is a natural part of the process as your hair follicles resume their normal growth phases. Within a few months, you will see new hair growth that will continue for years into the future. The wait is worth it – our patients routinely enjoy a transformed head of thicker, fuller hair.
FUT (follicular unit transplantation) and FUE (follicular unit extraction) are the most popular modern hair transplant techniques. The most important distinctions between them are that FUT removes a strip of scalp from the donor area, while FUE removes individual follicular units.
FUE minimizes recovery time with its precision, minimally-invasive approach to hair transplantation, and does not leave any visible scar. NeoGraft takes FUE to a new level, with the exacting precision of sophisticated, automated transplantation using pneumatic controls. It is the first follicular harvest and transplant system to earn FDA clearance.
As a NeoGraft patient himself, Dr. Tseng genuinely understands the devastating impact of hair loss. In keeping with his dedication to excellence, Dr. Tseng researched options extensively before choosing NeoGraft. He refuses to offer procedures or products that he would not choose for himself or his own family. When you arrive at our practice, you can be confident that Dr. Tseng’s over two decades of experience as a successful plastic surgeon will help you achieve the best, most natural hair transplant results available.
