A full head of hair is an important part of a confident and youthful appearance. Hair transplantation surgery can help restore self-esteem and confidence in one's appearance and permit an individual to develop into his true 'best self.' Hair transplantation surgery with Doctor Cooper and Doctor Sattler at Sound Plastic Surgery in Seattle can truly alter the course of one's life into a brighter new direction. Hair transplantation is a life changing procedure.
What is NeoGraft® FUE hair transplantation?
Sound Plastic Surgery in Seattle offers FUE hair transplant surgery using the latest NeoGraft® technology. With NeoGraft® our board certified plastic surgeons are able to remove single hair follicles from the back of the scalp in a minimally-invasive way. Thousands of hair grafts can be harvested from this region with little or no visible scarring. The tiny hair follicle grafts are then placed into the scalp treatment zones with a tiny needle-sized incision. With NeoGraft® you can avoid the unsightly, long donor site scar on the back of the head that runs from ear to ear used for old-fashioned 'strip' graft harvesting. Traditionally, a long incision was made from ear to ear, along the back of the head, and hair-bearing scalp skin was removed. This 'strip' scalp was then chopped into smaller pieces to provide the hair grafts. Using the old 'strip' harvesting technique, the resulting scar is long and visibile when the hair is kept short.
What is wrong with 'the strip' hair transplant procedure?
- Long scar from ear to ear
- Prolonged numbness
- Scar visible with short hair
- Slow recovery
- Activity restrictions
- Staples and sutures to be removed
- Old, outdated technology
At our Seattle hair transplant clinic, we think our patients deserve an effective and minimally invasive method for hair transplantation using the latest NeoGraft® technology.
How is NeoGraft® FUE hair transplantation surgery done?
Hair restoration surgery at Sound Plastic Surgery is done in our surgical procedure room. Our hair transplantation technique restores a youthful hairline using single, double and multiple follicular grafts which are harvested with a minimally invasive approach. The procedure takes between 3 to 6 hours, depending on the number of grafts that are placed. Our dedicated hair restoration team is capable of doing 'mega graft' sessions of over 3000 hair grafts in a day, achieving a one-stage hair restoration that maximizes time and recovery for our patients.
The follicular grafting technique that we use at Sound Plastic Surgery has been shown to result in the most viable grafts compared to other hair transplant techniques. The surgery is performed under local anesthesia. Our patients are able to listen to music or watch a movie on an iPad for the duration of the procedure. Patient's return home on the day of their procedure and follow up with Sound Plastic Surgery one week later. Patients are permitted to shower, wear a hat for coverage and resume activities.
Recovery after hair transplant surgery is very brief. Most patients are able to return to work within a few days of the procedure. It takes several months for grafted hair follicles to begin growing hair consistently.
