• NeoGraft Warning – A Closer Look

    Last week, after Alan J. Bauman, M.D. issued a public warning alerting consumers to the fact that unqualified surgeons may soon begin offering “NeoGraft FUE” procedures to unsuspecting patients, Spencer Kobren took some time to speak with the IAHRS accepted member about the many concerns surrounding this controversial hair transplant machine.

  • NeoGraft Hair Transplant Warning – Let The Buyer Beware!

    Follicular unit extraction (FUE) has come a long way since it was first introduced through The Bald Truth to North America by Australian hair transplant pioneer Dr. Ray Woods. Early adapters of the technique found it to be extremely labor-intensive when performed correctly, and limited by the number of grafts that can be safety harvested intact per procedure.

    During the slow evolution of this technique, several automated devices have been introduced into the mix with varying degrees of success. However, no matter which device is used to help in expediting the extraction of intact follicular units, it’s important to note that all devices are completely dependant upon the skill of the operator.

    One FUE device that has been heavily marketed and has been receiving a great deal of press lately, is the NeoGraft hair transplant machine. Unfortunately, for unsuspecting hair loss consumers, some of the claims being made by the manufacturers of this device, as well as by some practioners who have purchased the device, are, in our opinion, questionable at best.
