What is hair restoration?
Although hair loss affects approximately 35 million men and 21 million women, it is something that many do not take lightly. Technological advancements in hair loss restoration has made it possible for men and women to restore their lost hair in a minimally invasive manner. NeoGraft is an FUE hair replacement system offered by Houston, TX board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Rolando Morales. It is a breakthrough technology in hair replacement that is noninvasive, and proven to be fast and effective in producing hair growth. In addition, it does not result in any scarring such as the traditional “hair strip” transplant approach.

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 6 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 per follicular graft. The price will vary, depending on 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, the cost per follicular graft is $5 with total treatments ranging from $3,000 to $16,000 for all-inclusive packages.
