Address Thinning Hair and Balding in Grand Rapids. Hair loss is a reality for millions of men and women around the United States, watching with concern as their hairline recedes or their hair thins and bald patches grow.
Since many people find pride in a full head of hair, the feeling of helplessness—or even terror—that comes with slowly losing it can be quite distressing! Confidence, both professionally and personally, can suffer. While people dealing with losing their hair used to turn to wigs or obnoxiously obvious plugs to cover their increasingly visible scalp, there is now a highly sophisticated solution for anyone looking to get back a full, natural-looking head of hair.
By using NeoGraft® for hair restoration at the Grand Rapids Bengtson Center. Our team is working with advanced technology considered to be the gold standard in the industry. Hair restoration is an increasingly popular treatment, chosen by people who want to maintain an edge in a competitive job market, regain confidence in their appearance, and more.
About 40 percent of hair-loss sufferers in the United States are women, and an estimated 70 percent of all men will experience some form of hair loss, making the problem one that impacts the vast majority of adults in the country. No matter your demographic, the Bengtson Center is here for you, ready to join you on your journey of not just hair loss, but hair restoration. Let us turn your questions and uncertainty into answers and confidence!
What Is NeoGraft?
NeoGraft® is a device that automates a hair restoration procedure known as "follicular unit extraction" (FUE) which involves collecting healthy, hair-growing follicles from areas where they are found in abundance on the scalp.
This improves on a technique known as "follicular unit transplantation," which requires a surgeon to cut a thin strip out of the back of the scalp, leaving a horizontal line of a scar. Once collected with FUE, the follicles are dissected, giving the surgeon thousands upon thousands of healthy, living hairs to work with. These hairs are then meticulously placed into bare areas of the scalp, positioned with care to recreate the natural lines and angles of the hair that once grew in its place. The ultimate goal is a full head of hair that is indistinguishable from one that grew naturally.
FUE automated with NeoGraft® offers several distinct advantages over other methods:
Note that patients who have previously tried the strip method for hair restoration can get a second chance at a beautiful result with NeoGraft®, since the technique can be used to transplant follicles to hide a linear scar.
Plastic surgeon Dr. Brad Bengtson and his team are committed to a comfortable patient experience and superior results. Every procedure is handled with care and two primary factors in mind: patient safety and a beautiful, natural final look. Professional training and an ongoing commitment to staying current with the latest techniques and technologies drive all of the Bengtson Center staff. We love NeoGraft® because:
NeoGraft® is an ideal hair restoration solution for adults dealing with androgenic alopecia, which is the technical name for hereditary hair loss—better known as male-pattern baldness (or female-pattern baldness).
This is hair loss that progresses in a fairly predictable pattern due to genetics, so feel free to blame your parents! Before deciding on any hair restoration treatment, patients should first work with a doctor to determine the root cause of their problem. Hair loss due to stress or hormonal shifts, for instance, would likely not require a physical hair restoration procedure, since the hair would be expected to re-grow over time.
