Houston Hair Restoration by NeoGraft® at Paul F. Fortes MD Plastic Surgery

Hair restoration procedures used to require long, arduous surgical interventions that left the patient with a long linear scar and required significant downtime. Today, however, incredible advancements in non-surgical hair restoration technology enable you to regrow your hair without the use of scalpels, stitches, or staples! Dr. Paul Fortes is proud to offer his patients in the Houston, TX area the most advanced hair restoration technique available today: NeoGraft is a sophisticated, cutting-edge device that makes Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) harvesting far more efficient and precise than its predecessors. The NeoGraft hair transplant procedure has revolutionized the industry by minimizing discomfort, risk, and downtime and eliminating the traditional linear strip scar.

Thicker and Fuller

What is NeoGraft?

NeoGraft is a minimally invasive hair restoration procedure that uses innovative technology to provide natural-looking results with no visible linear scar and a quick recovery time.

It is a trusted name in hair restoration, allowing hair follicles to be extracted directly from the scalp in their naturally occurring groups of one to three hairs without a strip of the scalp being surgically removed. NeoGraft is a semi-automated variation of the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) hair transplantation technique, and it is considered safe and effective for restoring hair loss when performed properly. The procedure is designed to deliver excellent results for both men and women, and it can be effective for restoring hair loss when appropriately performed. NeoGraft is not an automated or "robot" procedure but rather a handpiece held by someone to cut the tissue around each graft and remove it. The recovery process for NeoGraft is minimally invasive and does not leave a visible mark on the scalp as traditional hair transplants do, and the general recovery process may vary for each individual.

Natural-Looking Flow

What are the Benefits of NeoGraft?

NeoGraft offers several benefits, making it an attractive option for individuals seeking hair restoration. Some of the key advantages of NeoGraft include:

Natural-looking results:

NeoGraft provides natural-looking results, restoring a thicker, fuller, and more natural hairline than older techniques. The procedure involves extracting healthy hair follicles from the back of the head and transplanting them into areas of thinning hair, resulting in a seamless and aesthetically pleasing outcome.

Minimal scarring:

Unlike traditional hair transplant methods, NeoGraft minimizes scarring. The procedure removes hair follicles one by one, resulting in tiny, barely visible scars that can be easily concealed by surrounding hair. This is in contrast to traditional methods, such as strip harvesting, which leaves a linear scar on the back of the head.

Faster recovery time:

NeoGraft offers a quicker recovery time compared to traditional hair transplant procedures. Since it is minimally invasive and does not involve scalpels, stitches, or staples, most individuals can resume their normal daily activities within a few days of treatment.

Reduced trauma and damage to hair follicles:

The NeoGraft system is designed to reduce trauma and damage to hair follicles compared to traditional hair transplant surgeries. This reduction in trauma can lead to improved outcomes and fewer complications.

Long-lasting results:

NeoGraft hair transplants can offer longer-lasting results compared to older hair transplant techniques. Many individuals experience noticeable and long-lasting improvements in hair density and appearance.

Your NeoGraft Procedure

The NeoGraft hair restoration procedure involves several key steps, varying slightly depending on the specific clinic and individualized treatment plan. Here is a detailed breakdown of the typical steps involved in the NeoGraft procedure:

Harvesting of Donor Hair: The first step involves the extraction of donor hair follicles from the back of the head, which is the typical donor area. This process uses the minimally invasive Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) method, which requires only local anesthesia. The donor hair is carefully harvested to ensure the preservation of the hair follicles for transplantation.

Creation of Recipient Sites: Once the donor hair follicles have been extracted, the recipient sites on the scalp are prepared according to the personalized hair transplantation plan. The area is marked and numbed to receive small slits, typically about one millimeter in size, which will accommodate the donor grafts. Before the placement of the donor hair, the patient has the opportunity to review the transplant design, including the placement of the new hairline.

Placement of Hair Grafts: The extracted hair follicles, or grafts, are then carefully implanted into the recipient sites on the scalp. The NeoGraft device is used to create tiny punctures into which the grafts are placed. This step requires precision and patience, as the grafts need to be placed meticulously to ensure natural-looking results. The follicular units are bathed in a special solution to maintain their health during the placement process.

A Fuller, More Aesthetically Pleasing Hairline

NeoGraft Results

The final results of a NeoGraft hair transplant procedure typically become noticeable after a few months, with the majority of new hair growth occurring between five to 12 months following the procedure. Patients can expect to see thicker, stronger hairs within three to four months, and the first visible results may be observed at around two to three months, with further progress at six months. It's important to note that individual results may vary, and the full benefits of the procedure are often experienced around 12 to 16 weeks after the transplant. Patients are often advised to expect their best results at about 14 months, indicating that the effects of the NeoGraft procedure are long-lasting. The natural-looking results achieved through NeoGraft can provide patients with a fuller, more aesthetically pleasing hairline, contributing to increased confidence and satisfaction with their appearance.

Walk With Satisfied Confidence

NeoGraft Recovery and Aftercare

Following the placement of the hair grafts, the patient enters the recovery phase. The recovery process may involve specific post-procedure care instructions provided by the medical team. Patients are typically able to resume their normal activities within a few days, as NeoGraft is a minimally invasive procedure with a faster recovery time compared to traditional hair transplant methods. After the procedure, patients may have follow-up appointments to monitor the progress of the hair restoration and address any concerns or questions regarding the recovery process or the results.
