“I am 49 years old and get sick to my stomach every morning as I try harder and harder to cover up my thinning areas on my head. No matter how many times my wife tells me I am handsome and she loves me, she knows, for me, it is so much more than that. I just can’t explain it completely. It just bothers me to no-end. I wish it didn’t. But it does. So in doing my homework and talking to many consultant friends, I knew I did not want a big scar that looked like a smile on the back of my head and thus I would have to keep my hair at a longer length – I want to keep my hair short – if possible. I was advised to look into the NeoGraft FUE system. The procedure was so darn easy to tolerate. Recover was a breeze.”

“Wow! That is how I would have to describe the NeoGraft procedure that I had done. After I left the office I did not have to take any pain medication, and aside from wanting to itch the graft area, the procedure did not affect my daily life in the least. I am 44 years old and was balding in the crown area and have already had friends comment on the difference and it has only been 4 weeks!”

"I have personally known Dr. Keith Durante for over 10 years. I have struggled with an ever growing bald spot on the back of my head for few years and the older I got the more it bothered me. I happen to see an ad about this new procedure called Neo Graft performed by Dr. Durante. My thought was why wait, do it now. After my consultation, I was completely convinced that Neo Graft was the right solution for me. No scarring, not painful, and very seamless. I had complete confidence in Dr. Durante and his team of specialists. The procedure was done with exacting care and I was able to resume normal activities within a few days. It has been 5 months and the results are amazing and very natural looking. I would highly recommend Neo Graft and especially Dr. Durante and his team to anyone who is struggling with any type of baldness."

"Dr. Keith Durante was unequivocally the best hair replacement specialist for my personal project. He was creative in his work and followed through with all promises until the job was done and I was completely satisfied. Most importantly the workmanship was excellent as evident with many people who are marveling at my new hair. After a few short months the difference in my hair line, and thickness is amazing. I would have no hesitation to recommend Dr. Durante regardless of the complexity of any hair replacement project."

“Starting the day I came to your office to the day my NeoGraft was done, it has been a great experience. I first met with Dr.Durante who made me feel very comfortable and was so kind and caring. Your patients are truly blessed to have found you. Michele was great. We spoke on the phone several times and she was always happy and helpful. She is a super gal. From the first time I met Tony & Carol I had a wonderful feeling about both of you. You were so friendly and made me feel very much at ease. You worked so hard & were just as pleasant in the end as you were when we started. It was very obvious that you loved what you were doing . I am so happy to have met all of you. You are “4” very special people.”

“I had a procedure done last October by Dr. Durante with his staff of experts when I made a decision to do something about my receding hairline and thinning hair. I was apprehensive because years ago I had friends who had this done and looked like plugs were placed in their heads & were very ugly & noticeable. This is a unique procedure using single follicles of transplanted hair from my head which was done in one day and was painless. I started this journey because I had a prevalent scar across the top of my head due to a diving injury when I was in my 20’s. As I’ve grown older the hair loss made the scar more noticeable. Not only did they cover up the hair loss but because there was still blood flow in the scar, the technicians were able to put transplants into the scar itself which I thought was amazing. Only five months later I have hair growing where family members commented how they could see the new hair coming in. From the time I walked into the office at Long Island Neo graft I felt at ease with Dr. Durante and the staff having decades of experience in this specialized field. Thanks for all your attentiveness & following up after the procedure.”

“Male pattern baldness runs in my family. My father and two older brothers all lost their hair at a very early age. At 48, I thought I had beaten the odds and was going to have a decent head of hair for the rest of my life. As all men do in the morning when shaving, I noticed my hair on top getting a little thinner every month when at the age of 50 I too had lost about 50% of my hair up top. It really didn’t bother me until I was forced into searching for a new job and finding out that my thinning hair may not help me with my search efforts. So as I researched my thinning hair options, I was not too pleased to hear about the surgery where they cut a strip of scalp from the back of the head. That’s when I heard about NeoGraft, a simple procedure where they take small grafts from the back of the head and place them where you need them. This was much more appealing to me. After I consulted with a doctor who actually had it done on himself (how about that for an endorsement) I was sold on the procedure. The procedure was painless and I was able to resume my normal activities the next day. Other than some minor swelling a few days after the procedure, I felt no discomfort. I will definitely recommend the Neograft procedure to all my friends.”

"My name is Kevin and I’m a retired New York City fireman that spent 15 of my 20 years in the FDNY Special Operations Command. The firehouse kitchen table can be brutal. Guys love to tease each other and I was no exception. I wasn’t going to let my hair line be the butt of anyone’s joke. I decided to shave my head completely before it was really noticeable. So I was just another guy who shaved his head. The only problem was that it made me look older. I didn’t like the way I looked in pictures or in the mirror for that fact. I shaved it for almost 5 years. Then I heard about the new NeoGraft procedure. I researched it and thought it could be something that would allow me to have a full head of hair again. So I made some calls and left some emails, but never heard back from these centers. Months went by and I put it on the back burner. One Saturday night I started researching again, and I placed a call to Dr. Keith Durante at the Long Island NeoGraft Center. I got the answering machine, so I left a message expressing interest. To my surprise, one hour later Dr. Durante himself called me back - on a Saturday night! I spent some time chatting with him and he explained what was involved with the procedure. After a 15 or 20 minute conversation he told me to call the office during the week and speak to Michelle. I called and they made me an appointment a few days later.
I found his staff to be friendly, warm, and very efficient. I talked to Dr. Durante and was very comfortable with his qualifications, his results, and most of all his ability to speak to me on an even down to earth level. Great bedside manner. I decided to make the commitment that day.
When I came back for the day of the procedure he had learned that I was a 9/11 survivor and asked me some questions about that day. He was touched when I told him that we had lost 19 members from my firehouse that day. He wanted to do something for me. So he gave me free grafts for every guy we lost that day. He said it would be something he could give that could be with me for the rest of my life. As you can see, he is not like most Doctors you have ever encountered.
The procedure went great. I am one month out from the surgery and I have hair growing in all over, just as he said I would. I can’t tell you how many people have noticed. I am so eager to see what the results will look like in 6 months!!! I couldn’t be happier. Not one regret. Thanks Doctor Durante, you’re the man!"

“I am a believer in hair transplants. I underwent a number of traditional restoration procedures and have always been pleased with the results… Until Now. Four months after my Neo Graft (FUE) Follicular Unit Procedure, I am amazed that relatively few of the 3000 units appear to have fallen out, unlike my experience with previous strip procedures. Graphs did go into dormancy and are now showing growth. It was very telling when I had gotten a short haircut in preparation for my recent procedure; the sides and back of my head looked like a roadmap from the previous strip harvesting and scalp reduction procedures. My restoration was complex and Dr. Durante took special care to have FUE’s placed around my scalp reduction crown scar. His level of experience and expertise was critical in achieving the desired cosmetic result. I had minor face swelling two day post op and had to point out to friends that I had a transplant procedure. Very satisfied patient.”

“As soon as I walked into Dr. Durante’s office, I knew I made the right decision. I have always maintained a healthy, active lifestyle, and being able to look as youthful as I felt was something that was very important to me, and even more so for my two young children. Dr. Durante and his staff was were so knowledgeable, compassionate and excited for me to take this journey. Immediately I was put at ease and felt very comfortable going through the procedure. The staff was so professional and I did not feel nervous at all. The NeoGraft transplant was absolutely a life changing experience. My self confidence and image of myself has increased beyond my expectations. The results have been incredible after three short months, I already can notice dramatic changes. Friends and family that I have known for years cannot stop complimenting how great I look. Dr. Durante is a master of his trade and truly a first class man. He has made me feel 10 years younger, and I would highly recommend this procedure and Dr. Durante to anyone that has been wanting to make this change in their life. ”

"My son, Kenneth Baribault, has been a police officer for many years. Unfortunately, he suffered a traumatic brain injury six years ago when he was struck, in the line of duty, by a drunken driver. He had pulled over one drunken driver when another drunken driver struck his police car at an extremely high rate of speed. This all occurred during a traffic stop. He almost died from the severe traumatic brain injury that he suffered. His amazing doctors were able to save his life. Because of having to undergo a number of lifesaving surgeries, he was left with many scars that trace across his scalp. Everyone in our family, especially Kenneth and his young son, are extremely grateful for the fact that he lived through such a horrifying crash. We are all very appreciative for the skill in which the neurosurgeons operated and that he is with us now. However, the scars had left their mark and where hair once grew, he was left with much less, and in some cases – no hair at all. To add to the unsightly scars, male pattern baldness had begun to set in on my son’s scalp in the rear and central front crown area. Between the scar tissue and the effects of aging, the baldness had reached a turning point. My son was feeling uncomfortable with how visible his scars had become. This is when we found Dr. Keith Durante.
My son and family did research online regarding hair transplant surgery. All of the websites and articles had rave reviews about Dr. Durante and the procedure he uses to transplant the hair. Review after review spoke so highly about the work he provides for his patients, and the personal attention and care he gives. My son met with Dr. Durante in the initial visit to evaluate his candidacy for the procedure. It was immediately evident that Dr. Durante is extremely thoughtful and caring for his patients, as well as very knowledgeable. He is compassionate for those who have scarring and other markings that may affect one’s personal self-image. In addition to making his patients feel comfortable and welcome in his office, Dr. Durante is an expert at the hair transplant procedure.
The procedure is minimally invasive and leaves no scars. The hair is removed from a harvesting area and then implanted into the desired location. In fact, the hair can be implanted directly into existing scars, which is exactly what was done for my son. It was truly the answer to our prayers: Kenneth didn’t have to undergo any additional invasive surgeries after all of the ones he had to endure to save his life, AND he could have a full head of hair that covered his scars. Since the procedure, his hair has taken root and remained strong and in place. As the hair grew and matured after the transplant surgery, the scars became less and less visible. The work Dr. Durante and his staff have done is truly remarkable. Kenneth is thrilled with the results.
My son is no longer self conscious about his scars and balding in general. He no longer looks in the mirror each day with a constant reminder of the horrific crash that almost took his life. Feeling comfortable and reassured with your own appearance is very important, especially after all he has been through.
I absolutely recommend that anyone interested in hair transplant surgery should not hesitate to contact Dr. Keith Durante and his staff for a consultation. After witnessing the amazing results of Dr. Durante’s efforts, we are so fortunate to have found him. I’m so thankful for all that he has done for my son."
