What is NeoGraft?
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. Learn more about hair loss and treatment options today.
"Dr. Kelishadi is amazing!!! He made me feel so comfortable! I had Breast Augmentation May 26th. I'm three months out and loving my results! I was very self conscious about my chest. My breasts shrunk due to breast feeding. I didn't even want to change in front of my husband. (he loved them no matter what lol) and now I am feeling so great about it! He said he's even noticed a boost in my confidence level. I love it! i feel good..i feel sexy. I never thought I would actually go through with getting this done, but Dr. Kelishadi and his staff helped me with every step of the way. He was very caring and checked up on me after surgery. His staff was very nice as well. All so helpful! I highly recommend him!"- J.V. / Yelp / Jul 27, 2017
"I can't say enough good stuff about Jolene. In fact, I followed her to SSK from her previous job. She's incredibly skilled and always works with me to achieve the perfect natural results I want. I really feel like she listens to what I want, and she makes sure I'm 100% happy before I leave the office. She is so sweet, while exuding a confidence and professionalism that puts me at ease. She's also incredibly generous with her time, and gives excellent follow-up care and advice via text. I'm grateful I found her!"- Z.W. / Yelp / Mar 20, 2020

"SSK Plastic surgery is the best plastic surgeons office in OC. Their entire staff is amazing and is very responsive. Jolene is their injector there and is amazing. I have gotten Botox, filler, and a few laser treatments from her and she is amazing. She always preps you on what exactly to expect, how it will feel, the results and she always follows up with you every day after. At SSK they really put their patients health and concerns first! Dr. K always comes in before the procedure and lets you know what to expect and sort of walks you through the process to ensure you know you are in good hands. He has some of the most talented people working at SSK! Jolene is also the sweetest person ever and will make you feel comfortable throughout the entire process :)"- S.C. / Yelp / Mar 19, 2020
"Dr. Kelishadi is hands down the best plastic surgeon in Orange County. He and his team made me feel comfortable and always taken care of. Shea and Alejandra answered any and all questions I had prior to my consultation. The team of anesthesiologists were world class and put my mind at ease prior to surgery. Dr. Kelishadi treated me like I was his only patient and was constantly checking in with myself and my husband post op and ready to answer any questions I've had since. If you have any desire to have any cosmetic procedures done, I encourage you to go see the very best and that is Dr. Sean Kelishadi. In addition to having my breasts augmentation at SSK, I have also been lucky enough to become a patient of nurse Jolene Retaskie. I reached out to her with some questions regarding Botox. She answered all of my questions and also provided me get resources to get discounts and coupons which was amazing!! She was so gentle and explained each step as I got my first dose of Botox. After she followed up with me and since then she checks in and always she's any specials or contests with me. As a busy working mom it's so nice to have a safe place to have "work" done. I highly recommend Jolene for all your injections needs!"- L.S. / Yelp / Mar 19, 2020
Am I A Candidate for Neograft?
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.
Neograft Treatment 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.
Neograft 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 Neograft 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.
