NeoGraft® Hair Transplants in Sugar Land – Houston Texas
How NeoGraft® Works
Step 1. Donor Hair Removal
The procedure is simple. First, NeoGraft® works by removing hair from the donor area in the back of your head where your hair is genetically programmed to resist testosterone. This is known as your donor hair.
Step 2. Follicular Unit Extraction
Then, we extract each graft with the same consistency in diameter and length. This results in a dramatically increased take rate.
Step 3. Creation of the Recipient Sites
The hair transplant surgeon creates recipient sites in the proper angle, direction and orientation according to the artistic hair transplant plan designed specifically for you.
Step 4. Placement of the Hair Graft
Finally, the follicular units are carefully separated by size. We transplant the grafts into the balding and thinning areas of your scalp. Each graft is meticulously harvested as it naturally occurs and implanted individually to ensure the best results.
NeoGraft® is a breakthrough for men and women who want to restore their own hair. Our goal is for you to achieve a more full and healthier head of hair. There are many advantages and the process is simple. The NeoGraft® procedure allows you to recreate a full and natural-looking hairline using your own hair.

Procedure & Results
NeoGraft is an FDA-cleared machine used for hair transplantation. It uses a minimally invasive method that is a variation of the FUE technique, which involves harvesting hair grafts one at a time instead of cutting a strip of skin from a donor site like the back of the head (FUT technique / Strip Method).
NeoGraft uses an automated handheld device to remove follicles and implant them in balding areas.

- Higher graft take rate (greater than 90%) than strip method and leads to less hair irritation
and trauma to the to the scalp

NeoGraft is priced by the number of follicles removed. Priced per graft versus how many hairs are implanted. An existing hair follicle can have up to 4 hairs in it. You are charged for 1 follicle, not 4 hairs. The number of grafts needed is individual to each person with a range of 500-3,000 with the average being 2,000 grafts.

What is an “FUE” hair transplant?
“F.U.E.” or “Follicular-Unit Extraction” is an advanced, “minimally-invasive” hair transplant method which allows for the harvesting of individual follicles from the back of the head (donor area) without a scalpel or stitches, and therefore leaves no linear scar.
What are the main benefits of FUE over the traditional “Strip Method” or linear harvesting?
It is well-accepted that FUE transplants can heal faster and more comfortably than linear-harvest techniques which the physician uses a scalpel and removes a strip of scalp requiring stitches. With the minimally invasive technique FUE, the patient can return to work in a couple of days and once healing is complete, the patient has the option of wearing a very short haircut without the worry of a tell-tale linear scar. Without the need for stitches, downtime is shorter with fewer activity restrictions postoperatively.
What are some benefits of NeoGraft™ over manual FUE techniques?
The highly ergonomic mechanical NeoGraft™ device works as a natural extension of the surgeons’ hand, allowing for faster and more accurate harvesting of hair follicles. NeoGraft™ patients now reach their goal with less time in the procedure room or fewer FUE procedures altogether.
Who is a good candidate for FUE using NeoGraft™?
Patients who would like the option of wearing a very short haircut in the back or sides of their scalp, or those who want the least amount of activity restriction (e.g. athletes) after their hair transplant procedure, may be good candidates for FUE with NeoGraft™. FUE can also be used for ‘scar camouflage’ procedures for patients who have had prior “Strip” procedures, as well as for body hair transplants.
What are the major cost differences between FUE and linear-harvest hair transplant procedures?
The fee structure for FUE hair transplant procedures reflect the more detailed and intricate nature of those procedures compared to those performed with a linear harvest strip method but in most cases is very similar in pricing.
Are the final transplanted ‘results’ any different with FUE/NeoGraft™ than those achieved with linear harvesting?
Results are similar. FUE procedures, by default, yield grafts that contain mainly one, two, three, or four follicles called “follicular units.” Strips or linear harvests, are removed from the back of the scalp and are then microscopically dissected by a team into grafts of one, two or three follicles, would also yield similar ‘follicular-unit’ grafts. Provided that in each case the grafts are implanted with care, artistry and precision into the recipient area, the final transplanted results with FUE would be similar, if not identical, to those accomplished with a linear harvest. The difference is not in the area of hair growth, but how the donor area is harvested either by a strip of scalp or by small individual graft extractions. Using the FUE Technique, leaves no linear scar.
Is FUE/NeoGraft™ suitable for both men and women?
Yes. Because FUE/NeoGraft™ is a minimally-invasive procedure, it is a viable option for both men and women looking to restore their own living and growing hair with transplantation.
Do I have to get a total ‘buzz cut’ to have an FUE/NeoGraft procedure?
No, if your hair is long enough, harvesting using the FUE/NeoGraft can be done by shaving small areas which can be covered by your other, existing hair.
Is there any guarantee you provide for this procedure?
No result can ever be guaranteed and therefore we can’t guarantee any results either, but I want you to know you’re in very good hands. Dr. Nguyen is Board Certified with years of experience and a team that has over 20 years of experience. We put our name and reputation on every procedure I offer and if we didn’t think this was the best possible hair loss solution I wouldn’t offer it in the practice. We will set as realistic expectations as possible and make sure all your questions are answered but anyone that does offer you a guarantee I would be very cautious because it’s just not possible and it would be an over promise to try and get you to commit to them.
