Dr. Michael Beckenstein introduced NeoGraft—a nonsurgical hair replacement procedure—to Birmingham and all of Alabama in 2009. Since then, hundreds of men and women have benefited from the innovative hair restoration treatment without the need to travel to “big-box” practices outside the state. NeoGraft creates results that look remarkably natural without incisions or sutures.
In the hands of an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon such as Dr. Beckenstein, the FDA-approved NeoGraft device uses pneumatic-driven needles to extract individual hair follicles from the back or sides of the scalp where they are plentiful. This technique, called follicular unit extraction (FUE), enables Dr. Beckenstein to remove the follicles without touching them, increasing the transplant success rates and enabling him to transfer many more follicles during a single session than can be accomplished with manual FUE.
What sets NeoGraft apart from other hair restoration techniques?
Over-the-counter pain relievers such as Tylenol or Motrin can reduce any discomfort experienced after the procedure.
Dr. Beckenstein is one of the leading hair preservation and restoration specialists in the South and treats each patient personally. The board-certified plastic surgeon combines exceptional technical skill with a personable demeanor to create a relaxed environment for the men and women concerned about hair loss.
Unlike traditional hair transplant surgery—called follicular unit transplantation (FUT)—a NeoGraft procedure doesn’t require making an incision. FUT is sometimes referred to as the “strip” method because the surgeon removes a strip of scalp from the back of the head.
A NeoGraft procedure, performed at our office, begins with numbing the donor area of the scalp. Then, using a specialized tool, Dr. Beckenstein begins harvesting hair from the head. Patients usually feel pressure or a dull sensation as the NeoGraft device punches small holes and suctions the follicles.
After preparing the follicles for transplantation, Dr. Beckenstein creates small punctures in the area of hair loss and meticulously places the hair to create a natural-looking hairline. A treatment session can last several hours.
What does T3 Hair Preservation offer that "big box" hair restoration practices don't?
Many people aren’t aware that NeoGraft can be used to reconstruct and enhance thinning or asymmetrical eyebrows using hair follicles that match the look of the brow (often harvested from the nape of the neck.) Using NeoGraft’s precise, non-invasive technique, we re-create eyebrows without any visible scars. Our team understands how important it is to properly orient follicles in precise locations to avoid unnatural looking results.
At T3, we offer innovative and exclusive plans to reduce scarring from surgical hair transplantation. Strip and scalp reduction scars often become unsightly and quite visible several years after surgery as hair thins with age.
We use NeoGraft technology to “punch out” areas of the scar, reducing the size and diminishing the straight-line appearance. We then place hair follicles in and around the scar to conceal even more. We may recommend a specialized micropigmentation treatment to enhance the results. These procedures are straightforward and cost-effective. Patients are often able to return to work immediately following the procedure.
Reconstructing and restoring facial hair requires in-depth knowledge of hair orientation as well as precise graft design and placement. At T3, we are experts in this technique. We design and execute procedures that restore harmony and balance to your most noticeable feature—your face.
