Yes. Because NeoGraft/FUE is a minimally-invasive procedure, it is a viable option for both men and women looking to restore their own living and growing hair with transplant. If you wear your hair long, small areas in the back of the head can be shaved, which can be covered by the rest of your hair. If you wear your hair short, it helps to get a close shave, as it will look more natural sooner as it grows in.
You can go back to work the next day if you choose and resume normal activity within 48 hours. There will be some pin point redness and some pin point scabbing for about 1 week.

Why Choose NeoGraft?
TRADITIONAL STRIP METHOD
The traditional method of hair restoration is known as the strip method, or FUT (Follicular-Unit Transplantation). It is an invasive procedure that removes an entire section, or strip, of the patient’s scalp and hair from the back of the head with the thickest hair growth. The surgeon then staples together the divided sections of scalp which leaves a permanent scar around the entire scalp. This often results in complaints of permanent numbness or discomfort from patients.
The strip of scalp taken from the head is used as the donor site with units of one to four hair follicles removed and planted in pre-created recipient sites that help form a new, thicker hairline. This was once a preferred method due to speed, until procedures like NeoGraft came along.
As mentioned above, NeoGraft, an FUE method, is a minimally invasive procedure that removes hair follicles individually without removing a strip of scalp. A tool makes tiny circular incisions surrounding each hair follicle and then removes the follicles using pneumatic pressure, or suction. The removed follicles are then implanted by hand by specially trained NeoGraft Technicians.
Not only is this method free of IV sedation, scars, and numerous complications, it is also a more precise method of hair restoration. The exact position of the follicles can be controlled by the surgeon during implantation, creating a more natural-looking hairline.
