What it is:
Dr. Wise is not only experienced with NeoGraft hair restoration, but he is also a double board- certified facial plastic surgeon and head and neck surgeon focusing exclusively on the face, head and neck. NeoGraft hair restoration, especially the placement of the hair, is an art that should only be trusted to a doctor that has dedicated his career to improving the areas surrounding the face.
Dr. Wise and his team take great care in creating a natural and appropriate hairline. Dr. Wise requires single hair grafts to promote a hairline that is completely natural. In developing a hairline, Dr. Wise always considers the direction of the growth of the hair, to ensure the grafts are placed in a natural direction. Otherwise, the hair may grow, but the appearance will not look natural and/or your hair will not be manageable.
Dr. Wise utilizes the NeoGraft™ Automated FUE (follicular unit extraction) Hair Transplant System for hair restoration because it is the most advanced and clinically proven method of non-surgical hair transplantation. It is the least invasive procedure of its kind, requiring no scalpel incision and no sutures. With Neograft hair restoration, Dr. Wise can provide absolute and exact placement of the hair using technology that operates under pneumatic pressure with automated control, providing you with a completely natural appearance.
Other patient benefits include no scarring, little to no discomfort, quicker recovery time, and a greater level of safety and efficiency compared to other procedures. NeoGraft™ is preferable over the strip method, especially where the donor site is concerned. NeoGraft™ patients do not need to spend the rest of their lives trying to hide that significant linear scar, which is a telltale sign of most hair transplants.
Dr. Wise is one of a handful of physicians in the northeast United States who offers this state-of-the-art procedure. NeoGraft™ is minimally invasive, and is an excellent option for both men and women looking to restore their own living and growing hair.
The best candidates for this hair restoration procedure are men and women with hair loss who have significant donor hair on the back of the scalp to transplant into balding or thinning areas. Patients who are not interested in a significant linear scar or who have a busy lifestyle and cannot afford a lengthy downtime associated with the strip method are terrific candidates for NeoGraft™. Patients who have had a prior strip procedure can also use NeoGraft™ as a “scar camouflage”. Undergoing this procedure with Dr. Wise will give you the confidence you deserve and the look that you want with your own living and growing hair!
What to expect:
Dr. Wise and his exceptional NeoGraft hair restoration team focus on making the experience a positive one for the patient. Whether it is communicating with loved ones on the patient’s status, providing the patient with a delicious lunch, or optimizing the patient’s experience with a high definition television or IPad, our focus is always on exemplary care.
When Dr. Wise and his experienced team utilize the NeoGraft™ Automated FUE and Hair Transplant System, the patient experiences minimal discomfort, a reduced risk of complications, and a quick recovery time. Unlike other grafting techniques that often produce an unaltered texture or unnatural pattern of hair growth, NeoGraft hair restoration has dramatically improved the results of hair restoration options, including no linear scarring. Grafting sessions are designed to replace the lost hair, thicken a thinning hairline, and provide a healthy and natural appearance.
It is possible for transplanted hair follicles to grow hair for the patient’s lifetime. The best donor areas are typically the back and sides of the scalp, which usually have hair follicles that are genetically coded to resist baldness. These transplanted follicles will continue growing hair, as they would have at the donor site. Skill in evaluating ideal donor areas is extremely important.
Most of the transplanted follicles will shed their hairs after the procedure. The first hair re-growth in these follicles is between 3 and 4 months. After about 6 months, 50% of them will start growing, and at 1 year about 95% will have started growing. Full density will not be seen until at least 11⁄2 years. However, even at 8-9 months you will begin to see impressive density.
Dr. Wise feels that utilizing NeoGraft™ yields the best opportunity for a successful “take.” It is not uncommon for 98% of the grafts to successfully grow hair.
Most of Dr. Wise’s patients have reported little to no discomfort during and after the procedure, as Dr. Wise provides local anesthesia during the treatment. Conversely, many patients have found that the strip method can be painful both during and after the procedure.
Some patients return to work the next day. Two to three days is preferred, however, because too much activity can cause an increase in swelling of the forehead, which may increase discomfort.
The NeoGraft™ Automated FUE and Hair Transplant System uses follicular unit extraction. This means that Dr. Wise and his experienced team remove individual hair follicles from one part of the scalp and transplant them to another. According to Dr. Wise, NeoGraft™ patients can heal faster and more comfortably than patients undergoing other linear-harvest techniques. In addition, once healing is complete, the patient has the option of wearing a very short haircut without the worry of a telltale linear scar that accompanies most procedures. Without the need for stitches, Dr. Wise’s NeoGraft™ patients experience a shorter downtime and fewer restricted activities.

Please read on to see how some of Dr. Wise’s NeoGraft™ patients felt about their results . . .
I had hair restoration with Dr. Wise, and my results were outstanding! My hair issues had been bothering me for a long time, and I had done a lot of research to find the best procedure and the best doctor. I am a busy health care professional, and could not afford to be out of work for a long period of time. Dr. Wise used the latest FUE technology on me, which resulted in minimal downtime, no scar and a very natural looking outcome. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Wise!

I had been referred to Dr. Wise by a close friend so I made an appointment to discuss a procedure. He answered all of my questions and made me feel at ease about the process and expectations. I just had my fourth procedure by Dr. Wise and I have never looked better. If anyone in Northern NJ is looking to have any cosmetic procedure go see Dr. Wise!
