Top 3 Questions About NeoGraft - Capizzi MD

50 million men and approximately 30 million women across the U.S. suffer from male/female pattern baldness or thinning hair. At Capizzi M.D. we treat this concern with a procedure called Neograft which uses a Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) method. The FUE method of hair transplantation removes individual hair follicles from the scalp in their naturally occurring groupings of about 1-4 hairs, then places these in the areas of the scalp where balding has occurred.

 

 

  1. What exactly do you go through when getting a NeoGraft Hair Transplant?
    Honestly, it was a lot easier than I anticipated. I arrived early in the morning to meet the doctor and his staff, they explained how everything was going to work and answered my questions. Once I laid down on the table and they applied the anesthesia, I couldn’t feel a thing. For the most part, during the procedure I watched movies on my iPad while they were working. It lasted a little over 6 hours and I was out of there around mid-afternoon.

  2. What was the recovery time like? Any restrictions?
    The first couple of days there was some scabbing from where they took out and put in the grafts but there was no pain. After about 3 days, it started healing up and I was able to gently pour water over my head while I was in the shower. Within 6 days, there was a little redness but it was healed enough to go to the barber and even out my hair so it looks as if I never had a procedure. For exercising, I had to wait around 10 days to get back to any normal exercising and 2 weeks before I could do get back to all high intensity workouts.

  3. Is it worth it?
    Absolutely, I’ve always had thick hair and still did but having a bald spot in my crown was a major insecurity of mine as a single male in his early 30’s. When I got the procedure all my friends were skeptical but after 6 months when it started filling in, everyone was amazed by the results. Now I’ve had 3 other friends get the procedure because I took away the stigma for them.
