Revolutionary Pittsburgh Hair Transplant Breakthrough, as Seen on CNN, NBC, and ABC
Though people naturally lose 50-100 individual strands of hair a day, that loss constitutes a small portion of the 100,000 hairs on the human scalp. Balding is often considered a natural part of aging, but it doesn’t have to be.
While there are numerous explanations for acute hair loss, including hormonal changes, thyroid issues, and Alopecia areata (a disease causing the immune system to attack hair follicles), the cause for chronic balding is more mysterious.
Have you been wondering why your mother’s father has a head of wavy curls and you do not? Balding is not caused by hereditary factors alone. Treatments like bleaching,
straightening, and waving, especially when coupled with hairstyles that pull the scalp too tightly (pony tails, cornrows, braids), can lead to what is known as “traction alopecia”. A diet lacking in meat, dairy products, and whole grain deprives the body of iron and protein, which are the main components required for growth. Hereditary factors combined with a poor diet and abuse of the scalp are sure to lead to significant balding, possibly very early in life. A hair transplant treatment with NeoGraft could be the answer.
Follicle unit extraction (FUE), the latest method of transplantation, is considered a costly and labor-intensive alternative to Strip Surgical Linear Scalpel Incision (STRIP), which is invasive and leaves a large scar around the edge of the scalp. FUE was initially celebrated because of its minimal discomfort, lack of a scalpel incision, lack of sutures, lack of a linear scar, small risk of complications, quick recovery time, and more natural looking results, but it was ultimately avoided by many medical professionals because of the time it takes to complete. However, there’s cause to celebrate once again. NeoGraft presents the Automated FUE and Implantation System. Now, patients can enjoy the discreet results of FUE, spend less time and money to have it done, and repair old STRIP scars with this revolutionary technological breakthrough. So, don’t go under the knife for your hair transplant! Call Premier Plastic Surgery for more information about the minimally invasive NeoGraft procedure.
