Now, with a new machine already widely used in Europe, the process of hair transplantation is scar free, less painful, and patient recovery time is dramatically reduced.

Shaft Medical San Diego, the area's premium aesthetic medicine practice providing the full range of advanced cosmetic procedures, announces the availability of the NeoGraft Hair Restoration California procedure for scar repair.

For balding or thinning hair there is now an effective solution. No painful recovery. No long downtime. NeoGraft California offers a revolution in hair restoration.

Now with NeoGraft, scars on the scalp are a thing of the past. Scar revision to repair a scar on the scalp as the result of past "strip" surgery hair transplants, scars from face lifts or any other injury to the scalp, is now possible. The old procedure to correct these obvious scars was to cut them out again with a scalpel, suture the scar back together and hope the scar does not spread again. However, with the new advanced technology of NeoGraft, scars can be permanently concealed by transplanting hair in to the area of concern. No scalpel, no sutures, no additional scars and no "hoping" for results. The hair transplanted to these areas grows forever.

Due to the challenges of the current job market, social relationship competition, and the aging baby boomer population affected by hair loss, hair restoration procedures and treatments are one of the fastest growing segments in the aesthetic industry. In the past, San Diego hair transplantation procedures were time intensive, invasive, and required specialized skills that were developed over time. NeoGraft is a revolutionary, FDA-approved automated hair transplant device. With NeoGraft hair restoration San Diego, hair is harvested one hair at a time from the back of the head without leaving the large linear scars associated with the strip method.


After planning the appropriate pattern of hair restoration for each patient, a small area of hair in the back of the head is cut short. Then, using the NeoGraft hand piece, about 1 mm in diameter, individual naturally occurring follicular (hair) units, each containing from 1-5 hairs, are extracted from the scalp. By using gentle air pressure to slide out each follicular hair unit, there is no twisting, pulling or cutting, thus avoiding any damage. These hairs are then implanted into the eyebrows, maintaining their viability and increasing the success of the grafting process.

Now, with the NeoGraft method of "follicular unit extraction", or “FUE”, hair follicles are gently lifted out of the scalp with a small instrument and light suction, and are then placed into the bald or thinning areas with reverse air pressure. The eyebrow restoration procedure is carefully designed to meet your desired objectives, carefully considering density, hair angle and hair direction.

NeoGraft utilizes a newer transplant system called follicular unit extraction, or FUE, in which hair follicles are removed individually from the back of the head. Under this minimally invasive method there is little danger of scarring, bleeding, or nerve damage.

FUE performed “by hand” has been too time-consuming and expensive for widespread use. The NeoGraft system offers technological advances that can reduce the time and cost of transplants, making FUE more practical for both men and women of all ages.
