Hair Restoration the Simple Way
At WESTMED, we have a 100% patient satisfaction rate for NeoGraft, based on our patient satisfaction surveys since 2013. Also, we understand the importance of a full head of hair. Whether it's important to you because of your professional life or your personal confidence, we want to give you exactly what you desire and deserve. We know how stressful it can be to research the different methods, many of which are painful, expensive and leave noticeable scars. The only person who should know you had hair restoration surgery is you.
Our Hair Restoration Solutions
With so many millions of individuals experiencing thinning hair and baldness, and so many downsides to the traditional method of hair replacement, WESTMED has chosen to offer the follicular-unit extraction method using NeoGraft. The difference is that in this method the surgeon replaces the patient's own hairs one by one from the back of the scalp to the balding areas in the front.
Just a few of the reasons why NeoGraft is a safer solution are:
- No Scars
- Little to No Discomfort
- Natural-Looking Results
- Less Recovery Time

Treat your Hair Loss Safely and Precisely with the Practice you Know and Trust
The WESTMED NeoGraft Hair Restoration Center, located at 3030 Westchester Avenue in Purchase, NY, utilizes the most advanced micrografting technology to individually transplant hair from the back of the head to thinning areas on the top and front of the head. The microscopic hair follicles grow in gradually over a few months. The treatment is effective for both men and women. We transplant individual follicles, not plugs or strips, so there is no scar or incision and the results are completely natural. The procedure is done awake with local anesthesia at WESTMED Plastic Surgery in Rye.
The advances in hair transplantation procedure technology over the past few years have been truly remarkable. Thousands of patients have benefited from NeoGraft follicular-unit hair extraction, providing the most natural-looking, permanent solution for those who are bald or have thinning hair. NeoGraft follicular-unit extraction and implantation is a method by which hair follicles are extracted and redistributed in a manner which duplicates how hairs naturally grow from the scalp. During the surgical procedure, hairs are placed individually and precisely by a skilled technician team along with your WESTMED physician.
What is Micro-Hair Transplant Surgery Like?
Most hair transplant procedures are performed on an out-patient basis, using local or twilight anesthesia. Patients comfortably relax, watch DVDs, listen to music or nap during their procedure, which takes several hours to complete.Follicular-unit micrografting is a procedure during which literally thousands of follicles are redistributed into the thinning or balding areas. Each micrograft contains a single "follicular-unit" consisting of one to three (or rarely, four) hair follicles. Follicular-unit grafts are then carefully implanted into the bald of thinning "recipient" areas. Meticulous artistic and technical skill is required to design an appropriate hairline, as well as ensure the appropriate angle, orientation and position of each transplanted hair. Follicular-unit micrografting creates a result that defies detection and is never, ever "pluggy."
Will a Hair Transplant Work for You?
While patients with early thinning hair certainly see tremendous results, treating larger areas of hair loss also can provide worthwhile improvements. Our ideal patient will have dense hair in the back of the head can provide hairs for transplantation to the front of the scalp. Patients must also have a very realistic sense of what kind of results we can achieve. The results are typically a tremendous improvement that meet our patients' expectations; however, restoration of all hair is never possible.
After your WESTMED NeoGraft Hair Restoration Procedure
Most people do not have any significant discomfort after the NeoGraft procedure. Some itching and swelling does occur, so we recommend patient's take a few days to rest and recover. With NeoGraft follicular-unit hair extraction you can resume normal activities in just a few days, unlike the strip excision method which could take weeks. Crusting and scabbing of the transplanted areas last about a week. A portion of the back of the scalp is shaved, and he can take a few weeks to grow in. Patients with longer hair can usually hide this donor area nicely. Patients with a very short haircut usually have the donor area grow in by 2 weeks.
The transplanted hair falls out in about two weeks and generally begins to grow again in about three months. This means that the hair restoration occurs naturally and gradually. Many patients require more than one session of hair transplantation and most will require some replacement again in the future as they continue to age. For patients with more significant balding, they may require a procedure every 6-12 months for 2-3 procedures. Others may just require small touch-up treatments in the years to come if they continue to lose hair in the untreated sections.
The transplanted hair lives and grows indefinitely. The hair can be styled any way the person desires. Although hair transplantation is a substantial investment, the results are considered permanent and may be less expensive than other hair loss treatments when factored over a lifetime. The improvement in self-image and confidence is well worth the cost for most people.
