No-Scalpel/No-Stitch “FUE” Transplants w/ NeoGraft…
NeoGraft enhances the speed, efficiency and quality of FUE (no strip scar) hair transplant procedures.
The mechanical device, guided by the surgeon’s hand, allows the individual extraction of hair follicles without the need of of a scalpel or stitches and leaves no linear scar. Recently, YouTube celeb, Kevin ‘Nalts’ Nalty had his surgery with NeoGraft broadcast live on the internet. Videos of his procedure can be found at www.hairofnalts.com

SURGICAL HAIR RESTORATION OPTIONS
In general terms, hair transplantation is the redistribution of ‘unchanging’ follicles from the back of the scalp (donor area) into the thinning or the balding areas (recipient area). It is a safe, effective procedure performed under comfortable, computerized local anesthesia (The Wand).Today, unlike old-style “hair-plug“ transplants, follicular-unit micrografting allows coverage of the scalp and the creation of a natural, living and growing hairline for every single patient. Dr. Bauman uses a combination of microsurgical techniques and an artistic eye to carefully determine the angle, orientation and position of each invididual transplanted hair in order to achive results that truly “defy detection.“ We encourage you to browse Dr. Bauman’s portfolio of “Patient Profiles” to see close-up photos of hairline results he has created. For more detailed information regarding Dr. Bauman’s hair transplant procedures, read the article about Dr. Bauman in the M.D. News. Dr. Bauman’s hair restoration procedures (and adjunctive treatments) were featured on NBC’s Dateline, which independently verified and clarified the effectiveness and natrualness of the Dr. Bauman’s hair transplantation techniques. You can track the progress of the Dateline NBC’s “Follicle Five” at www.folliclefive.com. Dr. Bauman’s procedures have also been featured on CNN, FOX News as well as in The New York Times, Newsweek, and Men’s Health Magazine. The latest news videos have been uploaded to www.youtube.com/baumanmedical, but they are also available at the Bauman Medical Newsroom.
SURGICAL HAIR RESTORATION TECHNOLOGIES
As part of Dr. Bauman’s commitment to his patients, he has developed and invested in the latest technologies required to consistently achieve the high level of surgical precision at which he and the Bauman Medical Group surgical team work each day.
In this photo, a Surgical Technician at Bauman Medical Group is dissecting individual hair follicles and follicular units under one of Bauman Medical Group’s powerful new digital video microscopes. Improved visualization of the follicles in the harvested donor tissue is now possible.
A ‘quantum leap’ in ergonomics and magnification, the videoscopes mean a more efficient dissection process, a better quality and quantity of grafts, and therefore, better results for every patient.
Trichophytic Donor Closure – Jan 2006
Dr. Bauman uses the trichophytic donor closure technique as a routine part of all of his linear donor harvests. For patients with short hair, this offers an acceptable alternative to FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction), which is typically a less efficient (and oftentimes more expensive) way to harvest hair from the donor. Dr. Bauman believes that there is still a role for FUE, but that the benefits of a trichophytic closure make FUE a somewhat less attractive option for some patients.
The trichophytic donor closure can be used on patients who have had previous procedures and are looking for improvement in the camouflage of their donor scar, as well as patients who are undergoing hair transplantation for the first time.

What is “FUE?” Follicular Unit Extraction
Dr. Bauman specializes in advanced surgical hair restoration techniques, including refined Follicular Unit Micrografting, using a linear-harvest, as well as minimally-invasive Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). Each procedure has its individual benefits which can be discussed during your consultation. Unlike other physicians which promote or specialize in only one technique, Dr. Bauman is proficient in a variety of methods of transplantation in order to achieve the best results for each and every patient.
With the latest instrumentation, doctors performing Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), can transplant individual hairs without harvesting hair from a “donor strip.” Since no scalpels or stitches are used, healing is quick and comfortable. The FUE procedure is ideal for patients who have short hair, an active lifestyle, and don’t want to have a linear donor scar. FUE procedures are more labor intensive and typically yield fewer grafts in a single session than traditional ‘linear’ micrografting techniques.

Proficient at both FUE and traditional ‘linear’ techniques, Dr. Bauman can guide you as to which procedure would best suit your needs. Regardless of the harvesting method, Dr. Bauman continues to use his artistic skill to recreate a natural hairline for each and every patient.

PRP Autologel Platelet Rich Plasma & Hair Transplants
3)Cellular Growth Factors and Proteins
PRP – platelet rich plasma – helps keep the wound moist like a biologic bandage and delivers the body’s own growth factors and nutrients. AutoloGel PRP contains activated platelets and promotes natural healing without side effects or risks.
Platelets are crucial to the healing of wounds. In order for a wound to heal naturally, it must have the growth factors provided by platelets. PRP harnesses each person’s own natural healing processes, delivering the growth factors and nutrients that help cells grow and new tissue to form. PRP can restore the balance in the wound environment to help hair transplants heal naturally with less redness, less crusting and less swelling.
Dr. Alan J. Bauman and every member of his hair transplant team have successfully completed the Cytomedix™ AutoloGel System Certification Training on the AutoloGel System for Surgical Hair Restoration as of August 24, 2011. Dr. Bauman was one of the first hair transplant surgeons in the world to have his entire surgical team certified to offer AutoloGel PRP wound healing.
AutoloGel PRP reduces scalp scabbing, swelling and redness
A study by RJ Reese, shows that patients receiving AutoloGel PRP after hair transplant had improved healing compared to those who did not receive AutoloGel.
All PRP’s are not alike. Only one is FDA-cleared for wound care: AutoloGel PRP. Because the term PRP can be applied to any platelet rich plasma product, it may be misleading. PRP products can vary according to their production process and the end results can be vastly different. There is only one PRP available that is cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for wound care: AutoloGel PRP. Dr. Alan J. Bauman and the surgical team at Bauman Medical Group is proud to offer the only FDA-approved PRP regimen with every single hair transplant procedure performed.
