NeoGraft For Men Des Moines
Hair loss in men is one of the more common signs of aging. By the age of 35, over 60% of American men will experience some degree of hair loss. This percentage goes up to 85% in men over the age of 50. However, there is no set age when hair loss is to be expected. This process can even start as early as 20 for some men. A survey by The American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS) notes a 7 percent increase in the number of men undergoing hair transplantation in the past year.
Hair loss in men can occur for a variety of reasons, but hereditary factors are by far the most common. Androgenetic alopecia, better known as male pattern baldness, accounts for more than 95% of all hair loss for men. Other forms of hair loss include certain medications, disease, stress and poor nutrition.
Because of the psychological importance hair has in our society, experiencing any significant loss of hair can lead to emotional hardship in men. This is why at Des Moines Plastic Surgery, most forms of hair loss can be treated.
Transplantation is an ongoing process that does require some commitment. Regardless of your balding pattern, NeoGraft can reduce signs of balding using your own hair, without surgery or downtime. In addition, the procedure is completed with minimal discomfort in just a few hours.
This is why Dr. Robbins utilizes the revolutionary patented NeoGraft Automated Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) and Implantation Hair Transplant System. This system is an FDA-approved breakthrough treatment that doesn’t require taking a large strip of tissue from the back of your head, something necessary in traditional hair transplant procedures. NeoGraft’s revolutionary grafting sessions can help replace lost and thinning hair without the use of a scalpel.
With NeoGraft, a state-of-the-art technology is utilized to quickly and painlessly extract hair follicles from the back of the head and implant them into the areas where hair loss is occurring. This hair is ideal, because it’s genetically programmed to continue to grow well into later years; the transplanted follicles that hold your hair are comprised of living tissue.
In order to execute the transplant, controlled pneumatic pressure is utilized. This helps to slide out the graft without damaging it. Each follicle is carefully implanted one by one into the balding area in a process known as follicular unit extraction. Because the grafts can be re-implanted quicker than with other methods, the hair follicles have a higher rate of survival, leaving the patient with a healthy and natural appearance.
Once the follicles have been implanted, the grafted hair will remain in place for a few weeks before shedding. This shedding process is expected and allows for new hair growth to begin in three to four months. Once this growth process is underway, the hair will continue to function and grow normally.
It’s important to know that hair loss does not stop after the transplant. As new areas of the scalp begin to lose hair, it’s not uncommon for men to receive further sessions for maintenance. In other cases, men can return to request more hair density in previously treated areas.
NeoGraft is proven to produce natural, virtually undetectable results in men. If you are interested in learning more about NeoGraft hair transplantation at Des Moines Plastic Surgery, call Dr. Robbins for your complimentary NeoGraft consultation at 515-221-9999.
