Thinning hair caused by aging, genetics or other factors can be a source of embarrassment and low self-esteem for both men and women. NeoGraft® hair restoration uses cutting-edge technology to transplant your own healthy hair follicles to the thinning or balding areas of your head.
Before you search for a NeoGraft hair transplant location near you, ask yourself these three questions to see if you could be a good candidate for this procedure.
1. Are You at Least 18 Years Old?
The ideal time to get a NeoGraft hair transplant is after you’ve been experiencing hair thinning or loss for around five years, before you’ve gone completely bald. For most people, this is around the age of 35 or 40.
While adolescents may experience periods of thinning hair or patchy growth, they should wait until they are at least 18 to consider hair transplantation, as their hair growth patterns are not mature prior to this age.
2. Do You Have Enough Donor Hair?
NeoGraft can produce excellent results, but you do need to have enough healthy donor hair on the back of your head to transplant to other areas. Once you’ve lost all or most of your hair, it may be too late for hair transplantation.
3. Are Your Expectations Realistic?
Everyone’s NeoGraft results will vary and are dependent on factors like how much donor hair they have and their individual hair loss patterns. Because of this, it’s important to be realistic about the density and thickness of your hair after NeoGraft.
The first step is to sit down with a board-certified plastic surgeon and discuss your goals to see if this breakthrough hair restoration procedure could be right for you.
