The FUE is a non-surgical hair transplant procedure that’s minimally invasive. Since the hair grafts are not harvested using the strip method, there is no linear scar. Unlike the FUT method, FUE does not require any suturing to close the post-extraction wounds. FUE grafts are extracted individually using a punch ranging from 0.7mm to 1.0mm & pneumatic pressure (or suction). Any small incisions left behind from the donor grafts will completely heal over the next couple of days post-surgery.
This hair transplant method is best for people who prefer to wear their hair short or who have noticeable areas of the scalp even with a longer hair style. In some cases, the FUE procedure gives clients the ability to wear their hair shaved with minimal to no detection of any hair transplant.
The FUE hair transplant procedure is virtually painless; however, local anesthesia will be given to the donor site to eliminate any trace of discomfort. The donor site is the area of healthy hair that will be transplanted to the area where hair loss or thinning is occurring. The donor area is almost always located on the back of the scalp where hair growth occurs differently than the front.
Once the donor area has been shaved & local anesthesia has been given, grafts will be precisely dissected from the back of the head. Instead of removing an entire strip like the follicular unit transplantation (FUT), the FUE method removes the individual grafts & transplants them to the area of hair loss. Once transplanted, hair growth will continue growing the same as it would in the donor area.
The NeoGraft is an automated hair transplant system that was created to increase the accuracy & time of the follicular unit extraction method. By using the NeoGraft system, grafts are collected smoothly with no risk of damaging the unit.
The NeoGraft is a handheld device that should only be used by a hair restoration physician. Dr. Michael Markou is the leading hair restoration physician in the Tampa area & is board certified by the American College of Osteopathic Family Physicians.

Tampa Bay Hair Restoration offers the latest technology in hair transplantations, including the NeoGraft FUE hair transplant. The NeoGraft Hair Transplant System was the first surgical hair restoration device approved by the FDA. This system uses the follicular unit extraction (FUE) method to transplant hair follicles from one area of the body to another. The FUE is less invasive than other hair transplant procedures & does not leave a linear scar.
Tampa Bay Hair Restoration also offers the ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant System. ARTAS is the latest hair transplant technology on the market & incorporates the same follicular extraction method as the NeoGraft. If you have been using the NeoGraft hair replacement procedure, you may upgrade to the ARTAS Robotic procedure for no additional charge. This is our way of providing the newest technology & the best hair transplant methods to both men & women fighting hair loss.

The follicular unit extraction (FUE) method uses naturally occurring follicular units to promote hair growth. A follicular unit is simply what comes out of the pore. Each follicular unit consists of 1 to 4 hair follicles that grow naturally together within the pore. Each follicular unit is extracted using the NeoGraft or ARTAS Robot.
Previous to the FUE method, 3-4mm hair plugs would be taken from the back of the scalp & would replace tissue from the front of the head. This often resulted in an unnatural-looking appearance. Since the FUE extracts individual follicular units, smaller hair grafts can be used to give hair a more natural-looking appearance.
