ABOUT NeoGraft® Hair Restoration

Rejuvenate Your Appearance with NeoGraft® Hair Restoration

Is hair loss affecting your confidence in your appearance? NeoGraft® is a minimally invasive hair restoration option that transplants your own hair from thicker areas of your scalp to thinner, balding areas. The NeoGraft® method is unique because it swiftly and painlessly harvests individual hairs using the follicular-unit extraction (FUE) technique. NeoGraft® is the first and only FDA-approved FUE implantation system, and features the only “no touch” technology on the market. During the procedure, your own hair and their follicles are transplanted in small, naturally occurring groups, so your results look and feel completely natural. To learn more about NeoGraft®contact the Long Island office of Stephen T. Greenberg, M.D., F.A.C.S today.

How NeoGraft® Works

FUE is less invasive than the traditional strip-method hair replacement technique, which involves the surgical removal of a small area of the patient’s scalp from the back of the head. The surgical strip removal can be painful, require a lengthy recovery period, and result in a noticeable scar. Neograft® is different.

If you look closely at your scalp, you will notice your strands of hair grow in small bunches, usually containing around one to four hairs. Using the NeoGraft® FUE system, Dr. Greenberg collects these hairs in their naturally occurring groups using a pneumatic pressure wand that swiftly suctions the hairs and their follicles from your scalp. Once these groups have been sterilized, they are precisely inserted in your scalp where they are needed.

Treatment Benefits

One of the greatest benefits of NeoGraft® treatment is its minimally invasive nature, which produces no scarring. The pneumatic pressure wand allows Dr. Greenberg to carefully collect the hairs without the use of a scalpel or stapling, and he uses discretion to ensure that the areas where your hair is harvested will still look full after your procedure.

Compared with the strip method procedure, your hair and accompanying follicles are also better preserved using NeoGraft®. The pneumatic pressure wand gently removes each group of hairs without damaging it. Because implantation is much faster, it helps the tissue remain stronger and healthier, while reducing your total treatment time.

Achieve a Fuller Head of Hair with Neograft

Patients with thinning hair or bald spots can now achieve a fuller head of hair with our NeoGraft treatment. The machine allows Dr. Greenberg to individually remove individual hair follicles without any scarring or downtime, and transplant them to the needed areas. Within a few months, the hairs will begin to grow naturally, filling in the thinning areas.


Results & Recovery

After surgery, your newly implanted hair will stay in place for three to four weeks. At this time, the strands will fall out and leave their whole, healthy follicles behind. After three to four months, these follicles will begin a new cycle of growth, and your newly restored hairline will begin to grow in.

NeoGraft® transplanted hair grows in the same way it did in its original location. Once your new hair has rooted and begun to grow, you can treat it like the rest of your hair, and it can be cut, styled, and washed just like you used to. Your hair can continue to grow for many years, although some patients may choose to undergo further treatments or use hair loss medication to maintain or increase the density of their hair as they age.

FAQ’s – Hair Restoration Frequently Asked Questions

At Greenberg Cosmetic Surgery we are able to address the effects of male hair loss at our Long Island and Manhattan offices. Nearly anyone with balding or thinning hair can undergo hair restoration surgery. Ideal candidates have healthy areas of thick hair on the sides or back of the head that can serve as donor areas for the procedure. Patients with hair loss caused by scalp injuries or certain cosmetic procedures often have larger areas of potential donor hair, since hair loss may be restricted to smaller areas.

The fully healed results following a Follicular Unit Micrografting Hair Restoration procedure are extremely natural looking, and virtually undetectable from a full head of real, non-treated hair.

Hair restoration is performed in the comfort of Dr. Greenberg’s Long Island office, a fully-accredited Ambulatory Surgery Center.

The surgery is nearly painless, and takes just a couple of hours to complete. First, donor strips are taken from the scalp at the back or sides of the head, where hair naturally grows more thickly. Next, single follicular unit grafts are harvested. Each inpidual graft in precisely placed in the treatment, or recipient, areas. Hair grafts will continue to grow as normal hair in their new location, and can be customized depending on each patient’s inpidual needs and aesthetic goals.

After hair restoration surgery, patients can usually return to work and regular activities within 24 hours, although strenuous exercise should be avoided. There may be some swelling around the eyes, or slight itching and crusting at the treatment site. These symptoms should subside within seven days.

The results of hair restoration surgery appear gradually as the transplanted hair falls out and then regrows to restore a natural appearance. The grafts’ growth is usually reestablished after three months and will proceed normally. The incisions will fade over time to become less noticeable as well. Desired results may be achieved after a period of roughly six months, although this duration varies slightly from patient to patient.

The extent of a patient’s hair loss, including physical characteristics and treatment goals, will determine the total number of procedures needed. For some patients, a single session may be sufficient, while others will require a greater number to achieve their desired results. Dr. Greenberg  can determine how many treatments will be needed during a thorough evaluation.

Similar to any type of surgical procedure, there are certain risks associated with hair restoration, including bleeding and infection. These complications are considered rare and risk of developing them can be further reduced by following instructions given by Dr. Greenberg and our staff before and after treatment.

If you are ready to reclaim a full head of healthy, thick hair, we can help. To learn more about NeoGraft®, including the total cost of the procedure, contact Greenberg Cosmetic Surgery today and schedule an appointment.

Hair Restoration
Natural hair produces natural results.

Achieve a Fuller Head of Hair with Neograft

The common procedures for men are liposuction, gynecomastia reduction, rhinoplasty, eyelid surgery, and hair transplants.

Types of Hair Restoration
Dr. Greenberg performs the following hair restoration procedures for his NY, Manhattan and Long Island clients:


Neograft is an innovative and FDA-approved harvesting and implantation system that utilizes an instant FUE technique. This specialized method uses an automated technology that works to gently extract groupings of hair follicles from thicker hair growth. The follicles are then precisely delivered to the targeted treatment area using the Neograft pneumatic controls. This “no touch” technology was designed with patient comfort in mind, and offers natural-looking results for successful hair restoration.

PRP Hair Restoration

PRP hair restoration is a scalp rejuvenating treatment that utilizes the healing and restorative benefits of your own PRP, or platelet rich plasma. PRP is a naturally occurring substance in blood that supports healing and restoration within the body. During treatment, this ultra-healing substance is redelivered to the scalp and works to promote the regeneration of healthy tissue and collagen production. This is effective at reviving damaged hair follicles and supports their ability to grow natural hair once again.

Follicular Unit Micrografting

Follicular unit micrografting is the most popular hair restoration procedure. It will give you a hairline that looks and functions naturally. Hair grows naturally in small follicular units. These units consist of 1 – 3 hairs, oil glands, small muscle, nerves and blood vessels and some collagen. In follicular unit micrografting, Dr. Greenberg will take individual follicular units from the back of your scalp and transplant them to the balding or thinning areas in the front. Once the follicular units are transplanted, they will continue to grow naturally. This hair restoration procedure is painless, takes just a couple of hours to complete and is performed in Dr. Greenberg’s Long Island office.

Megasession Follicular Unit Micrografting

The Megasession is a variation of the follicular unit micrografting technique. The Megasession hair restoration technique transplants up to 2,000 follicular-unit micrografts in a single procedure lasting up to six hours.

Reparative Hair Restoration Procedures

It is not uncommon for patients to look to Dr. Greenberg to repair poorly done hair restorations performed elsewhere. Often patients had their previous hair restoration done with outdated procedures or experienced complications that have contributed to an unfavorable outcome. The patients may be unhappy with an unnatural look, scarring, hairline placement or hair density. Using state-of-the-art reparative hair restoration procedures, Dr. Greenberg can dramatically improve your hair and help give you the appearance you desire.

Learn More About NeoGraft® Cost and the Benefits of the Procedure

If you are exploring hair transplant to restore your thinning or balding hair, you are likely curious about your treatment options and their costs. Dr. Stephen T. Greenberg is excited to offer NeoGraft®, a nearly painless, minimally invasive hair restoration method that results in a completely natural-looking appearance and no scarring. To learn more about your candidacy for the procedure, including NeoGraft® cost, contact our Long Island office today and schedule an appointment.

What is NeoGraft®?
NeoGraft® is an FDA-approved hair restoration system that utilizes follicular-unit extraction (FUE) technology. During FUE, a pneumatic pressure wand is used to swiftly and painlessly remove hairs and their follicles from your scalp using suction. The hairs are removed, and later implanted, in naturally-occurring groups of one to four hairs. By maintaining their natural groupings, NeoGraft® allows you to maintain the texture and appearance of natural hair even after it has been transplanted.

After they have been collected, your individual hairs and their follicles are sanitized and inserted into thin or balding areas where you have lost hair. After they are fully healed and rooted, your follicles will continue to produce hair in natural growth cycles so your hair will look natural and healthy for years to come.

Treatment Cost & Benefits
The cost of NeoGraft® treatment begins at $10,000, although your cost may differ slightly depending on the size of your treatment area, and whether you choose to undergo follow-up sessions to increase the density or fullness of your hair. Our satisfied NeoGraft® patients viewed treatment as an investment in their appearance and confidence, and chose the preferred method for its many benefits. NeoGraft® treatment is more comfortable, and offers more natural-looking results than other options, like hair plugs or strip method transplant surgery. Unlike NeoGraft®, the strip method of restoration produces visible scars, requires a lengthy recovery period, and can result in unnatural looking hair growth patterns.

Weighing Your Treatment Options
Greenberg Cosmetic Surgery is one of just a few plastic surgical groups in the area trained to use the NeoGraft® system. It is the premier hair-restoration option today, and offers numerous benefits over strip-method restoration including:

  • Little to no discomfort during treatment, and a fast recovery time
  • Scar-free results, and no numbness or lost sensitivity at the site of extraction
  • No scalpels, stitches, or staples required
  • The ability to return to work within a day or two following treatment
  • Naturally growing hair blends seamlessly with your existing hairline
  • Revolutionary pneumonic wand preserves the integrity of follicles and allows them to be implanted faster for longer-lasting results
  • Precise extraction allows for no visible difference in the areas where hair has been harvested

At Greenberg Cosmetic Surgery, we strive to make treatment affordable for each of our patients. We are happy to discuss available financing options, including CareCredit®. This health-and-beauty credit card is easy to apply for, and can help you finance hair restoration and other treatments with low, fixed-interest rates.
