What is NeoGraft?

NeoGraft is a revolutionary hair transplantation technique that has transformed the landscape of hair restoration. At Hill Country Plastic Surgery, we use the NeoGraft system to ensure our patients can experience a minimally invasive, efficient, and effective solution for hair loss.

NeoGraft is an automated hair transplant system that utilizes the follicular unit extraction (FUE) technique. It enhances the traditional FUE process by using pneumatic controls to extract complete individual hair follicles precisely, which are then transplanted to the targeted areas of the scalp. This technique has the unique capability to protect the harvested follicles better.

How does NeoGraft work?

NeoGraft utilizes the advanced method of follicular unit extraction (FUE) for hair transplantation. This process involves relocating healthy hair follicles from areas with abundant hair growth (typically from the back of the scalp) to regions where hair is thinning or balding. The transplanted follicles are recognized as native cells, promoting natural hair growth in sparse areas. Within approximately four months, patients typically begin to see a more voluminous head of their own hair – which is there for the long term.

The effectiveness of the NeoGraft procedure is primarily attributed to its cutting-edge follicle transplant technology. Unlike traditional hair transplant methods (strip method) that leave noticeable linear scarring, NeoGraft in San Antonio is a superior approach. It uses pneumatic pressure to meticulously extract individual hair follicles one at a time from the donor area. This technique significantly reduces the risk of follicle damage (to less than 5%) with no need for sutures. As a result, patients experience a less invasive procedure with minimal scarring, if any, and a higher rate of successful follicle transplants.

How much do hair transplants cost?

The cost of this procedure is $7.00 per graft. Typically, patients need somewhere between 750-4500 grafts, depending on the extent of the hair loss and their goals for restoration. We recommend that you meet with the surgeon to determine how many grafts are right for you.

What are the benefits of NeoGraft for hair transplantation?

NeoGraft offers several critical benefits to those seeking thicker hair or want to resolve a receding hairline or balding area on the scalp:

  • Minimally invasive: No scalpel incision, no sutures, no linear scar.
  • Reduced healing time: Patients typically experience a faster recovery compared to traditional hair restoration methods.
  • Natural-looking results: Transplants look natural and seamless, blending with existing hair.
  • High efficiency: The automated system allows for the transplanting of thousands of follicles in a single session.
  • Versatility: Suitable for both men and women with various types of hair loss, including thinning hair, receding hairline, balding areas, or a wider part.
