NeoGraft Treatments in Sarasota and Tampa

To many people, a full head of hair represents youthfulness, attractiveness, and desirability — both personally and professionally. At Holcomb - Kreithen Plastic Surgery & MedSpa, we’re very excited to announce NeoGraft® 2.0, an advanced hair transplant technology. NeoGraft 2.0 is the most innovative non-surgical approach to hair restoration available today. It’s a safe, minimally invasive, highly effective procedure that avoids the trauma and downtime of a traditional hair transplant.

What is NeoGraft 2.0?

NeoGraft 2.0 uses a game-changing approach to improve upon the drawbacks and post-surgical effects of traditional “strip method” hair restoration. This procedure provides results that are long-lasting and very natural-looking by combining a technique called follicular unit extraction (FUE) with a surgical machine that partially automates the FUE process. This is becoming one of the most in-demand hair restoration treatments in the Sarasota and Tampa area.

  • Natural-looking results

Before & After

Why get a NeoGraft treatment?

Approximately 50 million men and approximately 30 million women experience male/female pattern baldness or thinning hair.

Many potential patients shy away from traditional hair replacement techniques because of unsatisfactory results, slow recovery time, the loss of feeling at the incision sites, the linear scar that is left on the back of the head, or the amount of post-operative pain and numbness involved. However, these are now things of the past.

The FUE technique combined with the NeoGraft 2.0 machine creates a method that is now the least invasive procedure for hair transplantation. No stitches or staples are used, so patients experience little to no discomfort. There is no unsightly linear scar left, and little to no numbness at the site the hair is harvested. Recovery time is quick, with few restrictions on normal daily activities. Many patients are able to go back to work the next day. And because no linear scar is left (as it often is with other hair transplant methods), NeoGraft 2.0 is flexible for any hairstyle of the patient’s choice — whether short or long.

NeoGraft 2.0 treatment details

Follicular unit extraction works by taking natural groups of several hair follicles at a time from an area of healthy hair (usually the back of the head) and strategically placing them where the patient’s hair is missing or thinning. Anesthetic injections will be used to numb your scalp so that the procedure isn’t uncomfortable for you.

NeoGraft 2.0 uses a hand-held device to make very small, circular incisions directly into the scalp so that the healthy hair follicles can be removed. Once the hair follicle units have been removed, they will be prepped for transplant. A needle-point instrument will be used to make tiny recipient sites where the hair is lost or thinning. The healthy hair follicles will immediately be grafted into these areas in a naturally placed pattern. These grafts will eventually create new hair growth in the needed areas.

Candidates for NeoGraft 2.0

If you’re considering NeoGraft 2.0 treatments in the Sarasota and Tampa area, it may be the solution you’ve been looking for. NeoGraft 2.0 is ideal for patients who:

  • Are in good health
  • Have moderate hair loss and sufficient donor hair on the back of the scalp to transplant 
  • Would like the option of having a very short haircut after the procedure
  • Want the least amount of recovery time possible
  • Want to hide a linear scar from a past hair transplant
  • Have realistic goals for the procedure (NeoGraft can achieve amazing results, but cannot restore your hair to how it was when you were a teenager!)

Benefits of NeoGraft 2.0 over manual FUE techniques

Although the FUE hair transplant technique is effective on its own, it does have some room for improvement. This is where the NeoGraft 2.0 machine makes a lot of difference. The highly ergonomic mechanical NeoGraft 2.0 system works as a natural extension of the surgeons’ hand, allowing for faster and more accurate harvesting of hair follicles. The NeoGraft system has pneumatic controls that can remove up to 3000 hair follicles in a single session. When performed by hand, only 500 can be removed in a session.

NeoGraft 2.0 allows patients to reach their goal with less time in the procedure room — or fewer FUE procedures altogether. With NeoGraft, there’s no cutting, pulling, or twisting, so there’s no risk of damaging the graft. The grafts can also be placed sooner, which keeps them more robust and viable, resulting in a natural-looking hairline.


The science behind grafting is simple: Healthy follicles that are currently growing hair are taken from the back of the head and moved to where they’re needed. The follicles that hold the newly transplanted hair are living tissues that grow cyclically. Once the normal hair follicle has been implanted into the balding area, the grafted hair will stay in place for about 2 to 3 weeks before shedding. This is normal, and also an important part of the new growth process. 

After shedding, the new growth will begin in 3 to 4 months, and your hair will continue to grow normally. More importantly, your results will look healthy and natural. However, hair loss does not stop after transplantation. Some patients will need continued maintenance, and further sessions will likely be needed — particularly if the balding pattern progresses with age. An estimate of the number of procedures you will need can be discussed during your initial consultation.

Is NeoGraft suitable for both men and women?

Yes. Because NeoGraft is a minimally invasive procedure, it’s a viable option for both men and women who want to restore their hair with their own transplanted hair follicles.

Do I have to get a buzz cut to have a NeoGraft procedure?

No — not if you wear your hair long. If your donor hair is long enough, harvesting with NeoGraft can be done by shaving small areas that can be covered by your other existing hair. If you wear your hair short, it helps to shave it close for maximum yield. It looks more natural sooner, as the transplanted grafts are short as well.
