Hair Transplant In Toronto: Is NeoGraft A Safe Option?
As people become older, it’s normal for the vast majority of males and more than half of women to suffer from hair loss.
Most people have heard of this condition and it’s considered to be the most frequent cause of hair loss known as androgenetic alopecia, also referred to as male or female pattern hair loss. That being said, a variety of medical problems may cause hair loss; however, the most prevalent is androgenetic alopecia.
Luckily there are ways to treat and manage this condition. Hair transplantations are procedures in which hair follicles are removed from one region of your head, generally the back or sides, and transplanted into balding areas on the other side to promote new hair growth in the previously lost areas.
There are many procedures that have been available for decades for hair loss and over the years these outcomes have greatly improved since they were first started.
The two most common hair transplant procedures are follicular unit transplantation (FUT) and follicular unit excision (FUE). Both have the ability to provide outcomes that are both natural-looking and visually appealing to patients in Toronto.
That being said, there has been a leading advancement in hair restoration known as NeoGraft. NeoGraft is a semi-automated variant of FUE that is considered to be one of the most advanced hair implantation methods available today. It is said to be more successful than other FUE procedures since it eliminates some of the human error that might occur throughout the procedure.
Let’s take a look at the possible advantages and disadvantages of NeoGraft hair transplants. We’ll also look at how it compares to other hair loss restoration procedures, as well as how much it costs.
Things To Expect During A NeoGraft Procedure
NeoGraft is highly popular for patients in Toronto due to its high success rate and rapid treatment. The following is a list of what to expect during your treatment with us:
- Your surgeon will either shave your complete head or a part of your scalp from which hair follicles will be donated, depending on your preference.
- They will next administer a local anesthetic to your scalp to make you more comfortable. They may provide a small sedative to you before the treatment in order to help you relax if needed.
- They will then remove your hair follicles using a special wand that applies pneumonic pressure to the area where they are located.
- Following that, the surgeon will implant the hair follicles into the balding areas of your scalp using a specialized instrument designed specifically for this purpose also known as the NeoGraft Device.
- In order to assist control bleeding, the surgeon may apply a bandage to the donor site as well as the implantation site.
Who Would Need A NeoGraft Procedure?
Even though hair transplantation surgery does not have any medical benefits and is purely done for cosmetic reasons, it may make you feel more confident about your look if you are self-conscious about your hairline or the missing hair.
People suffering from androgenic alopecia usually benefit the most from hair transplantation procedures since this medical condition is hard on your emotional and physical being.
The Advantages Of NeoGraft
NeoGraft is one of the most recent and technologically sophisticated hair transplantation treatments available in Toronto. A semi-automated variation of the FUE method, which makes use of Venus Treatments’ proprietary technology, is used in this procedure.
During FUE hair transplantation, a surgeon physically extracts individual hair follicles from the back or sides of your head, depending on your preference. When they are finished, they will make a number of incisions into the balding areas of your scalp and then implant the new hairs.
NeoGraft is a method of removing hair follicles that involves the use of a wand that removes them using suction. In order to implant new hair follicles, the surgeon does not need to create an incision. Instead, he or she may use a specific instrument that simultaneously makes the incisions and implants the follicles. The following are some of the advantages of NeoGraft in Toronto:
Less Damage To Hair Follicles
When compared to typical FUE and FUT procedures, the NeoGraft method may result in less stress and damage to hair follicles. It’s believed that decreasing trauma to the scalp will increase the survival rate of the grafts and this has been tested and successfully shown to be true.
Less Problems Or Issues Arise
Given that this procedure is less invasive, it may have a reduced risk of surgical complication than traditional FUT surgery, which requires removing a strip of skin from your scalp.
NeoGraft does not need the use of sutures or staples, and the automation reduces the possibility of human mistake, which might result in nerve or blood vessel damage.
A Quick And Simple Method
Furthermore, NeoGraft surgery is less time-consuming than typical FUE, which may take several hours to days when doing a significant number of grafts. According to Venus Treatments, a NeoGraft transplant might take anywhere between 4 and 10 hours to complete.

Typical candidates for hair transplantation include the following:
- You are free of any medical disorders that might interfere with surgery, such as high blood pressure, uncontrolled diabetes, or illnesses that impact blood coagulation.
- Are more than 25 years old, have strong hair fibers, and experience hair loss along their hairline.
- Have hair that is near in color to their skin tone
- Do not have hair loss that is induced by stress or medication
- Are looking to promote new hair growth in the previously lost areas of the scalp.
- Have enough donor grafts for the procedure.
The Cost Of NeoGraft In Toronto
Since every patient is looking for different results the cost will fluctuate between each individual. It gets more costly to use NeoGraft as you have more follicles implanted into your scalp and the technology is different. Our clinic charges $3.99 per hair graft using the FUE method which means that during your consultation with one of our experts they will be able to tell you exactly how many grafts you need for the results you desire and will also give you a precise cost for your transplant.
The price varies depending on a number of variables, including:
- Surgical competence and expertise of your surgeon
- The quantity of hair that is being transplanted
- The cost of living in your neighborhood
- Additionally, if you are traveling for the procedure, you may need to pay for travel fees.
Because NeoGraft surgery is often considered a cosmetic procedure, your insurance company is unlikely to pay the cost of the procedure. You may inquire with your service provider to see if they give payment arrangements.

NeoGraft Vs. FUT And FUE Hair Transplants: Which Is Better?
NeoGraft, FUT, and FUE are all treatments that are quite similar, and all three may provide outcomes that are cosmetically acceptable to the eye.
A surgeon will remove a strip of hair from the back or side of your head. Once they’ve done this they will begin to remove individual hair follicles and transplant them into the needed areas. FUT is much more invasive than other hair transplant procedures because it requires a strip of skin to be removed from the scalp.
It is often less expensive than FUE and NeoGraft, but it produces a linear scar at the donor’s place, which is not ideal. If you keep your hair short, the scar may be more visible than usual.
FUE & NeoGraft
FUE and NeoGraft are performed in the same manner, with the exception that NeoGraft is semi-automated.
During conventional FUE, a surgeon physically removes and transplants hair follicles from the donor area to the hair loss region.
At the time of NeoGraft surgery, hair follicles are collected by suction rather than by manual extraction, and they are implanted with the use of a specialized instrument that regulates the depth of insertion.
NeoGraft Recovery Process
In comparison to FUT and conventional FUE surgery, NeoGraft is less invasive since the automated system limits the depth of the incisions.
Following the hair transplant, the hair grafts that are implanted should be fully healed within a week, and most patients may return to their normal routine within two to three weeks or sooner if they are able to work from home and feel well enough to do so. That being said, many individuals return to their workplace a few days after having their treatment done as the hair transplant is considered to be minimally invasive. Swelling or scabbing is usual for one to two weeks but should go away pretty quickly as long as you’re taking proper care of the scalp.
Your surgeon will be able to provide you with precise expectations as well as instructions for how to care for your grafts after surgery.
