NeoGraft™: My Experience in Asians
The advantage of the NeoGraft™ technique is that the follicular unit graft is removed by vacuum instead of by manual extraction, thus potentially reducing trauma to the graft during extraction and potentially enhancing graft survival. The vacuum mechanism can be reversed to implant the grafts. Minimizing the human factor involved in hair transplantation may help achieve better survival of the grafts. In this text I will present my experiences in utilizing NeoGraft™ in Asian patients.
