NeoGraft hair restorations fall into the category of robotic hair restorations, as the NeoGraft procedure is aided by the use of an automated pneumatic tool designed to remove the individual follicular units from the donor site. The automated tool helps prevent the doctor from potentially damaging otherwise viable follicular units as a result of unnecessary twisting or pulling during the removal of the grafts from the donor site.
While the pneumatic tool does assist the doctor in ensuring a maximal yield of follicular units from the donor site, NeoGraft procedures are nonetheless limited in terms of the total number of grafts that can be transplanted during a single session. Since NeoGraft is a form of Follicular Unit Extraction, an eight-hour session is still likely to produce somewhere between 1,000 and 1,500 total grafts.
NeoGraft sessions can occur on consecutive days in order to achieve the individual patient’s goals and objectives, but it is important to reiterate that the automated aspects of NeoGraft procedures do not necessarily mitigate the time-intensive nature of this process. The recovery process is essentially the same as any other form of Follicular Unit Extraction, which is why sessions can be performed on consecutive days.
