NeoGraft vs.
Strip Method

If you are considering hair transplants, it is crucial that you understand the differences between the NeoGraft system and the strip method. Plastic surgeons can vary in the type of method they use; some originally learned the strip method and continue to use it, due to being unwilling to change, or not ready to invest the time and money in shifting their methods to the revolutionary NeoGraft system. If you are ready to do something about thinning or balding, you should ensure you have the most effective treatment – for you.

What is the Strip Method?

The Strip method is a traditional method by which hair follicles are harvested. A strip of your scalp is removed (after which it is stitched back together) and from this strip, with the use of a microscope, the strip is cut into tiny grafts for transplantation. This method may, in some cases, be the only option for patients with extreme balding, but has drawbacks, including a longer recovery time, and the patient being left with a linear scar that is visible in any shorter haircut. It is also a long and grueling procedure, requiring many hours to perform.

Neograft vs Strip Method

What is the NeoGraft Method?

The NeoGraft method is completely different; rather than taking a piece of your scalp, grafts are harvested from the back of the head in 1mm punches, each of which holds from one to four follicles. While manual FUE had benefits, NeoGraft takes it to another level. Manual FUE allows for about 750 grafts to be harvested in one appointment – the NeoGraft automated system allows for up to 2,500 grafts to be performed in only one appointment.
