"Great Experience with Dr Morales - Dr. Morales was very kind, professional and provided me with great results!! He was readily available to address any of my concerns throughout the entire process. Another doctor previously preformed a butt augumentation with implants; I was disappointed and left with improperly placed implants along with very deap and unsightly scars. Dr. Morales had since removed the implants and revised my..."- C. / RealSelf / Sep 08, 2017
"33 Years Old, Two Boys and I Needed 'ME" Back! - Houston, TX - When i first got in the doctor's office (after doing deep deep research on his practice and him, i mean hours of research, do your homework!! ) I was NERVOUS! Dr. Morales made me feel so comfortable , reminding me that he does this for a living!! He made me feel so good... so i decided right there on the spot that i was going to have a surgery with him, i visited 4 doctors before him, but none of them had the perfectionist eye that he did, HEY ! my body right, we better get it right the first time.... My experience has being amazing, we had a few bumps on the way, my skin did not reacted well so i had an infection my second week, my amazing Dr. was super responsive, he was busy with his family and i would shoot him an e-mail an within minutes he would respond, called medicine in for me to the pharmacy and comforted me that everything was going to be ok. His assistant Linda went above and beyond with me, when i had made a last minute decision on the size of my implants, she asked all around to get what i wanted ( DO NOT DO THAT BY THE WAY), but she made it happened, she was there thru the whole process , I remember coming in frustrated and her comforting me and telling me that everything was going to work out just great!! OVERALL! my experience with all the staff was amazing, I do not regret it, i feel amazing and I'm looking pretty awesome as well!! all i can say is that this Doctor's hands were a calling from God, he does not only makes you feel special but he gives your life back by giving you confidence... Thanks Dr. Morales!"- T. / RealSelf / Sep 05, 2017

"36 Yrs, 4 Kids, Athlete and a Professional Career Woman - I decided to do a butt implant with fat transfer about a year ago after I worked so hard for many years to "grow" my backside with diet and exercise.

"So Far, So Good, Worth It! - I was a little skeptical and very nervous about doing this. On a recent vacation I noticed how flabby I was in stomach area despite me being a regular in the gym. Yes I have ate clean did crunches and cardio and nothing. I also had scars on my stomach that needed to be taken care of. I am very happy with results and honestly didn't think it would come out this great. So far I'm in my 6th week..."- R. / RealSelf / May 16, 2017
Who is a Candidate?
The best candidates for NeoGraft are those with only frontal or partial hair loss and with adequate donor hair in the back of the head. NeoGraft essentially takes small grafts of hair from the back of the head and transplants them to the front. Dr. Morales will conduct a thorough consultation and will first ensure that there is enough hair to transplant. Candidates for this approach typically where their hair short.
NeoGraft uses a special pneumatic technology that removes and slides hair out seamlessly and safely into very small sections. There is no yanking, pulling or twisting. The grafts are then implanted into the areas where the patient desires hair growth. This process takes place in an effective timeframe so that hair follicles do not risk becoming damaged in the transplant process. This increases the chance for follicle survival and long-term hair growth.
NeoGraft takes place inside Dr. Morales’ plastic surgery center. Each session, depending on how many grafts will be used, can last up to 3 hours. After treatment, the patient’s head will be thoroughly rinsed and a protective medicated ointment will be applied to the scalp. It is very important that patients follow Dr. Morales’ postoperative guidelines so that the grafts can be properly cared for at home. It is normal to experience tenderness for the first few days following the procedure. Exercise and vigorous activities should be limited for the first couple of week so that the grafts can heal without additional swelling.
The reason why hair follicles are taken from the back of the head is because that area is genetically programmed to continue to grow. These follicles, once transplanted, will continue to grow as long as the follicle remains healthy. The NeoGraft system is engineered to ensure a safe and effective follicle transplant. Once the hair follicle has been implanted, patients will be informed that a “shedding” phase will occur. This should not cause any alarm. The grafted hair typically stays in place for about 2-3 weeks, and then sheds. The next growth phase of hair generally takes place within 2-4 moths. During this time, new hair growth will occur and the results will look normal and natural.
NeoGraft is priced differently for every patient. Our plastic surgery office charges per graft, as well as the complexity of the case, the number of areas to be treated, and the number of sessions it takes to achieve the desired results. On average, treatment can cost anywhere from $3,000 to $16,000.
