Hair

Dr. McCafferty’s interest and experience in hair restoration techniques began in 1985 during his plastic surgery residency at the University of Miami’s Division of Plastic Surgery under D. Ralph Millard, Jr., M.D. and Dr. John Devine. Dr. Millard was arguably one of the most innovative plastic surgeons in the history of the specialty and Dr. Devine was a pioneer in hair restoration surgery.

Dr. McCafferty previously served for many years as an Instructional Course faculty member teaching other plastic surgeons hair restoration techniques at the annual meetings of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery and the American Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons (now the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.) He also has scientific journal and textbook publications on the subject.

Dr. McCafferty’s expertise over the past thirty years includes cosmetic hair restoration associated with male and female pattern baldness, and reconstructive procedures for patients who have lost a small or substantial portion of their hair to trauma, burns or cancer.

To many men and women, a full head of hair represents attractiveness and desirability both personally and professionally. For this reason, it is vital to understand what effects a hair restoration procedure can have on your daily interactions with people and in all other aspects of your life. Hair Restoration should be unnoticeable to all but those you tell.

The facts are that approximately 50 million men and approximately 30 million women suffer from male/female pattern baldness or thinning hair. Many potential patients shy-away from (or are not candidates for) the traditional “strip method” of hair replacement because of the slow recovery time, the loss of feeling at the incision site, the tiny linear scar on the back of the head, or the amount of post-operative pain involved.

After much research, we have chosen to offer the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) method utilizing the NeoGraft® Automated Hair Transplantation system. The FUE method of hair transplantation removes individual hair follicles from the scalp in their naturally occurring groupings of about 1-4 hairs and are then placed in the areas of the scalp where balding has occurred.

Reasons Why The NeoGraft® Procedure Is The Solution

  • It is the least invasive procedure for hair transplantation
  • Patients who receive the NeoGraft® procedure feel little to no discomfort
  • No stitches or staples are used in the NeoGraft® procedure
  • No unsightly linear scar
  • Flexibility for any hair style of your choice, short or long
  • Shorter recovery time - patients can typically go back to work the next day
  • Fewer restrictions on your normal daily activities
  • Natural looking results

Why Choose the NeoGraft® Procedure?

The NeoGraft® system is the first and only FDA cleared follicular unit harvesting and implantation system. The NeoGraft® system delivers automation of the FUE technique, the most advanced technique in the hair transplant industry.

This revolutionary system uses pneumatic controls to precisely extract complete individual hair follicles which can be immediately transplanted to the selected areas of the scalp. The NeoGraft® automated hair transplantation system is the only complete harvesting system on the market and has the only ‘NO TOUCH’ implantation technology.

Hair Restoration with NeoGraft® technology provides absolute exact harvesting and placement, delivering repeatable results. With NeoGraft’s technology each follicle is removed individually while the patient is comfortable. A natural looking head of hair is created with this minimally-invasive procedure.

Hair loss can be a very emotional part of the natural aging process, and seeking ways to curb this process used to be a challenge. NeoGraft’s advanced technology offers a discrete solution to hair loss, allowing patients to achieve natural looking results with no linear scar, minimal downtime and a shorter recovery period. Hair restoration with the NeoGraft® procedure is unnoticeable, making it your secret to tell.

  • Superior Results – More natural looking hair, short or long for both men and women.
  • Advanced Technology – Automated technology, least invasive procedure for hair transplantation.
  • Gentle – Little to no discomfort. No scalpel incision, no staples, no linear scar.
  • Effective – Less activity restrictions than traditional strip methods.
  • Discrete – Patients can typically go back to work the next day.
  • Affordable – We have programs available to meet your exact needs.

Benefits of the FUE Method

  • FUE hair transplant is a very safe, minimally invasive, relatively minor procedure
  • Minimal bleeding and fewer complications than with the “strip” method
  • Procedure is performed with local anesthetic and no intravenous or intra-muscular sedation is required
  • Patients experience minimal discomfort, no scalpel incision, no sutures, no linear scar and quick recovery times
  • And Many More!

The NeoGraft® Automated FUE is also a useful procedure to fix visible linear scars from previous “strip” surgeries. FUE can be used to ‘fill in’ or camouflage those old scars by transplanting new follicles into the area.

Hair Restoration Facts

  • From the American Society of Plastic Surgeons— According to the 2012 statistics from ASPS, hair restoration showed an increase for both men (3%) and women (6%, third largest increase for cosmetic surgical procedures for women). (Source)
  • From the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery— More people continued to seek treatment for hair loss in 2012, according to statistics released from a member survey conducted by the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS). The extrapolated worldwide number of hair restoration patients treated in 2012 was approximately 971,460 (285,425 surgical patients and 686,035 non-surgical patients) – a 5% increase from 2010. From 2010 to 2012, hair restoration procedures performed on the eybrow and face (moustache/beard) increased 13.1%. (Source)
  • From the American Academy of Dermatology— Hereditary hair loss is a medical condition that affects about 80 million American women and men. A man has a 50 percent chance of experiencing hair loss by his 50th birthday. This hereditary condition, clinically termed androgenic alopecia, is characterized by a receding hairline as well as a loss of hair on top of the scalp. (Source)
