Hair loss affects men and women of virtually any age. For younger people with this problem, hair loss can cause them to appear significantly older than they are.
However, hair loss can profoundly affect your self-confidence, regardless of your age or gender. Balding or thinning of the hair has long been considered challenging to treat, with previous hair restoration techniques lacking effectiveness and discrete results. NeoGraft is a cutting-edge system that restores hair more effectively and efficiently than past treatments, without visible scarring. In addition, NeoGraft is non-invasive with minimal downtime, causing far less trauma than a traditional hair transplant. The Clinic for Plastic Surgery is excited to offer some of the most groundbreaking hair restoration Houston has to offer, with NeoGraft.
The NeoGraft hair restoration system uses pneumatic pressure to suction hair follicles from the donor area gently, effectively keeping them intact for successful implantation.
The automated NeoGraft system involves implanting your new hair follicles in a random pattern throughout the target area to produce natural-looking results that are far superior to the rows associated with earlier hair restoration methods. NeoGraft also provides quicker, more comfortable treatment than manual hair transplant procedures, with less invasiveness and downtime.
NeoGraft is faster, more effective, less painful, and produces better results than traditional hair transplantation. As an automated system, NeoGraft delivers consistently excellent results, so you can rest assured that you will achieve the thick, lush hair you want. With no visible scarring, your NeoGraft results will look entirely natural so that you can live your life with the utmost confidence in your appearance.
NeoGraft is a fantastic treatment option for men or women with balding or thinning hair. While other treatments leave scarring that makes short hairstyles embarrassing to wear, Neograft will allow you to wear any hairstyle you choose confidently. NeoGraft hair transplants are safe and effective for patients of any skin type. You should have enough hair to provide sufficient donor follicles. Also, you should be in generally good health to avoid complications. If you have undergone a previous hair transplant and developed scarring, NeoGraft can help you conceal your scar and achieve better results.
You will receive local anesthesia for your one-day NeoGraft hair transplant to ensure your comfort during treatment. You may also need to trim your donor hair before your treatment begins.
Then, while you relax comfortably, your Houston plastic surgeon will use the pneumatic power of NeoGraft’s handheld device to gently remove healthy hair follicles from the donor site for transplant. Male patients will likely have their donor hair extracted from the back of their head, as this is the area most resistant to baldness. Female patients, however, may have their hair harvested from other areas. Next, your surgeon will pay close attention to your personalized Houston hair transplant plan as they create recipient sites throughout the target area. Finally, the harvested hair follicles will be sorted by size before being individually placed in a random, natural-looking pattern throughout the treatment area.
Immediately following your treatment, your scalp may swell, and you may experience mild discomfort treatable with over-the-counter pain medication. It is essential that you do not touch your hair with your hands, a comb, or any other item that might dislodge your newly implanted follicles.
You will be able to return to work within one to five days of your treatment. You will be able to resume light exercise 48 hours after your treatment, though you should wait one week to engage in strenuous activity. Around ten days after treatment, you will be able to return to your regular daily hair care routine, including brushing and shampooing. You will be able to receive a haircut after two weeks and hair color after four weeks.
It will take some time for your hair transplant results to develop. While your grafted hair will shed and regrow within three to four months, you can expect to see the most significant growth between five and twelve months after treatment. Your results will continue to improve up to 18 months after your NeoGraft hair transplant.

At least two weeks before your surgery, you should cease any topical hair treatments in addition to any medications or supplements that may thin your blood. You will also need to avoid alcohol and smoking in the days before your treatment. If you have light hair, your surgeon may have you dye your hair three days before your treatment.
Not necessarily. The only way to know the details of your personalized NeoGraft treatment is to discuss your treatment with one of our skilled surgeons.
