There are a lot of people talking and wondering about Neograft FUE.
The question everyone is asking and the debate on many hair transplant sites are quite simple: is this an advantage or a hindrance?
On the bald truth not too long ago, Spencer Korban and Dr. Bauman had an in depth discussion on the subject and weighed out the pros and cons. You can youtube the video to see it.
The reality of Neograft, like any new technology is that it allows/enables surgeries or cosmetic surgeries to improve or hopefully improve. The question is simple: is Neograft one of these technologies which will enhance and revolutionize the hair transplant field? Maybe yes. Maybe no. Frankly it depends the people working with the machine.
At the end of the day, and I can not stress this enough, a hair transplant is an extremely difficulty cosmetic procedure that only a handful of Doctors have truly mastered through experience via thousands of surgeries and by god-given artistic ability that can not be learned. You either have it or you don’t.
While technology always helps us improve – if you have an amazing performing vehicle but little to no experience driving and high speeds and handling such a vehicle, the outcome looks gloomy. I would suggest the same for Neograft. I will always refer to the same principal over and over – whenever getting a hair transplant, you MUST go to an extremely experience clinic who has produced thousands of results consistently. If a clinic with experience adopts the Neograft procedure, it is much like an race car driver getting into a new car – it’s still new – but the experience is there and the learning curve will be far less.
To this day – when the debate of FUE vs STRIP comes up, I always state the same – STRIP will always yield a higher growth rate and will cost less money and give you more grafts than by FUE – be it Neograft or any other type of FUE technique. Thus, Neograft falls into a category that all FUE falls into with the same limitations and pros and cons apart from it being faster to extract and plant grafts and increase survival rate – to what degree at this point is still speculation. If you insist on having Neograft FUE done on you – the same rule applies. Who’s the Doctor performing the procedure? How much experience does the Dr. Have in the Hair Transplant Field? I for one, would not be in the first 100 procedures and admire those who are confident enough to go through with it; however, if I’m a gamblin man, I bet on the best guarantee I can and as of right now Neograft is not it.
This is not say that as the results come in the opinion will not change; however, as of right now, it’s still new and the verdict is still out.
