Hair restoration for San Francisco
Hair loss is a reality for millions of people-men and women alike-but hair restoration options in San Francisco and beyond have not always delivered in the way sufferers have hoped they would. Dr. Stanley Jacobs has found that NeoGraft works well for his patients by treating all types of hair loss, from male pattern baldness to thinning hair in women.
While hair restoration is not new to Dr. Jacobs' practice, previously available hair restoration techniques did not meet his high standards for aesthetic excellence. Traditional techniques involved cutting the scalp and resulted in an unnatural appearance, also known as "doll's head." The new technology elevates hair restoration to an art form and meets Dr. Jacobs' strict demand for a natural hair pattern with no incisions, no sutures, no linear scar, and minimal downtime. NeoGraft is an FDA-approved hair loss treatment and is about the same cost as other hair restoration techniques.
Dr. Stanley Jacobs works hard to restore hair to his patients whose hair is thinning. Learn more about hair restoration by contacting us online or the San Francisco office (415) 433-0303 or Healdsburg office (707) 473-0220.
Is this hair restoration method right for me?
Men facing hereditary baldness and women dealing with thinning hair can find many possible hair restoration solutions to the problem of an increasingly visible scalp, but NeoGraft presents an answer that is accurate, fast, minimally invasive, and doesn’t require a scalpel incision or stitches.
This system makes use of an FUE hair transplant device. Bay Area patients may already know that FUE stands for "Follicular Unit Extraction," which is a method of collecting healthy individual follicles from one area to be transplanted to the bare portions of the scalp. Since there are no incisions involved in this collection process, healing time with this hair restoration method is drastically improved from techniques that make use of a linear incision.
FUE techniques can be manual, but the NeoGraft hair restoration technique is automated, which allows for greater accuracy and speed. That translates to shorter hair restoration sessions, as well as fewer visits with the doctor.
Since there is no incision in the collection phase during an FUE hair transplant (as there is in other hair restoration techniques), there is no scarring. Patients who prefer to wear their hair short will be able to do so with confidence that no telltale marks will show after the procedure.
What to expect during a NeoGraft hair restoration procedure
Know that a hair restoration session can last several hours-and possibly up to eight hours.
The session will be broken up into two parts. The first half involves the harvesting, using a specialized FUE hair transplant device to collect healthy follicles from a patient lying face down for several hours.
After a short break comes the second half of the hair restoration procedure, during which the harvested follicles will be implanted into the areas where skin is showing. Typically, this will be in the front and on the top of the scalp, so the hair loss treatment patient will be sitting upright at this time.
Your choice of a qualified and talented surgeon for this hair restoration process is crucial. Dr. Jacobs will use his medical skill and his eye for artistic detail to create natural-looking lines on the scalp, bringing the hairline forward and restoring a fuller-looking head of hair. San Francisco-area patients will benefit from the organic look that comes from his aesthetic sensibility.
Because of the way NeoGraft works and its predictable results, it is ideal for patients who want to return to their normal, physically active lives in a relatively short amount of time after the hair restoration procedure. The new hair may initially require some extra care when it comes time to shower and shampoo, but patients find that to be a small trade-off for the new confidence and satisfaction they find in their fuller head of hair.
