Overview

NeoGraft is one of the most advanced techniques in the hair transplant industry. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Sean Kelishadi uses the NeoGraft system for patients who suffer from hair loss. This popular, minimally invasive hair transplant method produces natural-looking results in patients. At a consultation with SSK Plastic Surgery in Newport Beach, CA, patients receive a comprehensive hair and scalp assessment to understand the cause of hair loss. The NeoGraft technology uses a follicular unit extraction (FUE) system to transplant hair follicles one at a time. Patients who are concerned about hair thinning or baldness can schedule a private consultation at SSK Plastic Surgery.

Best Candidates

Patients should have the cause of their hair loss diagnosed by Dr. Kelishadi before receiving a hair transplant at SSK Plastic Surgery. This gives patients the highest chances of hair transplant success. Fortunately, the NeoGraft system can be used on men and women of all ages and hair types with thinning or bald areas but still enough hair to reach their cosmetic goals. NeoGraft does not create new hair follicles but transfers them from denser areas to thinning or balding areas. This gives patients more coverage and the appearance of thicker, fuller hair.

Surgical Technique

The NeoGraft hair restoration process can take between 3 – 8 hours with a local anesthetic to minimize patient discomfort. This timeline can change based on the number of follicles being harvested. The advanced NeoGraft system allows Dr. Kelishadi to perform the hair restoration without stitches, staples, or linear scars. SSK Plastic Surgery will create a custom treatment plan that considers where the hair follicles are taken from and where they will be rooted. We also consider the angle, direction, and orientation of the hair to match the appearance of the surrounding hair. Once the treatment plan is in place, Dr. Kelishadi uses the NeoGraft system to choose which hair follicles will be removed, looking for consistent diameter and length. Each graft is then carefully prepared before they are implanted into the thinning or balding areas of the scalp.

Recovery and Results

While most patients feel no pain after their NeoGraft procedure, they should still refrain from intense activity or exercise for about a week after surgery. For the first several days following treatment, the grafts will begin to scab over so we recommend using any shampoo or ointments as suggested by their surgeon. Treat the hair grafts gently for the first two weeks when taking a shower or styling the hair. Be careful to protect the grafts from sunlight, wind, or other environmental exposure.

The hair follicles will take about 2 – 3 weeks to take root in the scalp. At this point, the hair will begin to shed, which is an important part of the process. In 3 – 4 months, patients will see their new growth that will blend in with their natural hair. One of the reasons why the pre-transplant exam is so essential is because our team needs to determine the reason for hair loss. Knowing this information can help keep or enhance your final outcome.




Estimated Costs

There are a number of factors that determine the cost of a NeoGraft hair transplant, including the number of follicles transplanted. Most patients receive around 2,000 grafts but up to 3,000 grafts can be done in one day. Cost typically ranges between $2,000 and $20,000. An experienced plastic surgeon, like Dr. Kelishadi, has the skills to give patients the natural results they want. A bad hair transplant can be extensive and costly to fix so it's better to choose the right surgeon the first time. SSK Plastic Surgery works hard to determine the reason for hair loss before the transplant for the best results.
