FUE/NeoGraft is the latest breakthrough in hair transplant procedures. More efficient and less invasive, FUE (Follicular-Unit Extraction) with NeoGraft device allows more hair follicles to be transplanted than with manual FUE tools and quicker recovery than traditional procedures. In June of 2009, Dr. Alan J. Bauman and Bauman Medical Group hosted the first Live Surgery Workshop dedicated exclusively to this new hair transplant technology. Thank you to our faculty, attendees, sponsors and patients who helped make it a complete success!

What is NeoGraft™?
NeoGraft™ is a FDA-approved breakthrough surgical device that facilitates the harvesting of follicles during an “FUE-type” hair transplant. NeoGraft™ dramatically improves the accuracy and speed over previously used manual extraction instruments. Building on his years of prior surgical experience with other devices, Dr. Alan Bauman was the first Diplomate of the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery to routinely use no-scalpel, no-stitch NeoGraft™ for FUE hair transplant procedures.
What is an “FUE”-type hair transplant?
First described in the medical literature around 2001, “F.U.E.” or “Follicular-Unit Extraction” is the least invasive hair transplant method. FUE allows for the delicate harvesting of individual follicles and follicular-units from the donor area without a scalpel or stitches and therefore leaves no tell-tale linear scar to hide.
What are some benefits of NeoGraft™ over other FUE techniques?
In our hands, the highly ergonomic mechanical NeoGraft™ device allows for gentle, efficient and accurate harvesting of hair follicles. NeoGraft™ is the most precise FUE device available and the only instrument that allows for tiny customized depth-adjustments for each patient—smaller than a fraction of a millimeter! NeoGraft™ patients reach their goal with less time in the procedure room or fewer transplant procedures altogether compared to other FUE techniques.
Who is a good candidate for FUE using NeoGraft™?
Patients who would like the option of wearing a very short haircut or those who want the least amount of activity restriction after their hair transplant procedure (e.g. athletes) may be good candidates for NeoGraft™/FUE. Dr. Bauman has also successfully used NeoGraft™/FUE for ‘scar camouflage’ procedures for patients with prior linear harvests, hairline touch-ups and repairs, and as well as for successful body-hair and beard transplants.
