Scarless Hair Transplant
One of the drawbacks of some hair transplant procedures is the need for incisions and stitches. Follicular unit transfer or transplant (FUT) is an effective option for harvesting viable hair grafts from the scalp, but it also leaves behind linear scars on the scalp. There are other options for hair transplantation that do not leave behind visible scars. At Elite Hair Transplant Center, we offer scarless hair transplant procedures at our facility in Beverly Hills, CA.
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)
Follicular unit extraction, or FUE, is a type of hair transplant procedure that does not require incisions or stitches. Instead of removing strips of skin from the scalp that contain hair follicles, the individual hair grafts are removed. This is a meticulous procedure that extracts the hair follicle from one area of the scalp and transfers it to another area. A small puncture is made in the skin where the hair graft is placed, but no incisions or stitches.
FUE offers a scarless hair transplant option, but when performed manually, it is very time consuming, resulting in higher costs for the patient. Automated FUE can speed up the process while still negating the need for incisions that will leave visible scars. The first FUE method to be FDA-approved for hair transplant is the NeoGraft® system, which we offer at Elite Hair Transplant Center.
NeoGraft No Scar Hair Transplant
NeoGraft is an automated robotic system that is guided by our plastic surgeon, Dr. Obaid Chaudhry. This pneumatic device extracts hair grafts without removing skin, then inserts the graft into the desired location. The puncture into the skin does technically leave a scar, but it is so small that it is not visible. No linear scars are left behind for a discreet and natural appearance. NeoGraft can transplant thousands of hair grafts in one session, offering a faster FUE option without the scars that come with FUT.
