According to the American Hair Loss Association, by age 35, more than two-thirds of men will experience some degree of hair loss. Depending on how much hair is lost, and how soon it happens in one’s life, this can be quite distressing. In fact, it’s not only men who suffer from hair loss and hair thinning, an almost 30 million women experience this. Las Vegas plastic surgeon, Dr. Christopher Khorsandi, offers a minimally invasive solution that looks and feels natural. The technology uses Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), a method that utilizes the state-of-the-art NeoGraft Automated Hair Transplant System.
"I've seen Melanie for scar and stretch mark treatments here. She is AMAZING!!! Melanie is very gentle and keeps you well informed of what will occur during the procedure and how to care for the areas after treatment. She didn't hesitate to have me contact her if I had any questions or issues at all. I feel super comfortable coming here for my treatments. Melanie is honest and has a fantastic professional demeanor. I would like to add that the other members of Dr. Khorsandi's staff are also very nice and welcoming."- S.E. / Yelp / Jun 09, 2017
"You can't put a price tag on being truly comfortable in your own skin - Las Vegas, NV - After 4 years of debating and research I finally decided to go through with rhinoplasty. I must say it turned out better than I had ever imagined. My whole life I've hated my nose, I was scared to really smile and I'd even try not to laugh because I was so self conscious about my nose. Of course all of your friends and family will tell you the signature "oh your fine the way you are" but like..."- E. / RealSelf / Jun 09, 2017
"So I am updating my review and I'm still giving everyone a 5+ star rating! I did the fraxel on Monday and it's Sunday evening and yes I am still pink but the results are amazing! My hyper pigmentation and most of my texture is gone! I also received a chin implant with Dr K on Wednesday so I'm still swollen with that but I know I'm going to love the result of that as well! Again I need to give a shout put to Mel for being a beast with a laser! She is my go to when it comes to my aesthetic needs and also Dr K for giving me confidence with my profile. I just wish the swelling would go down faster! lol damn lack of patience. Well I now have a laundry list of other things I would like to tweak. And I know VIP is the place I can trust and know I'll get the best work done!"- V.B. / Yelp / Feb 18, 2017

She made sure I was comfortable, at ease, and felt no pain. She is absolutely amazing! Everyone is amazing!"- J.Y. / Yelp / Jun 07, 2017
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) using the NeoGraft technology, is a less invasive approach for hair transplant surgery. The FUE method removes individual hair follicles from the scalp in groupings of about 1-4 hairs, and is then placed in the areas of the scalp where balding or hair thinning has occurred. The technology uses pneumatic controls (air compression) to achieve this. The benefit to this approach, is that a patient does not have to suffer with a linear scar on the back of the head as some of other traditional approaches create (sometimes referred to as the “strip method” of hair replacement). NeoGraft offers a natural look with limited downtime.
NeoGraft is recommended for patients who do not want an aggressive, invasive approach that will lead to scarring. It is suitable for both men and women. Patients who enjoy wearing their hair short and want to keep an active lifestyle (i.e. exercise and sports) would benefit from this approach. The NeoGraft FUE System is also used to help achieve improvements to the scalp for patients who had previous body hair transplant procedures that left a linear scar. NeoGraft’s technology can be used to help camouflage prior scarring.
NeoGraft is performed in-office under local anesthesia. The automated tool “punches” out small grafts of healthy hair follicles and implants them into the area where more hair is desired. The entire procedure can take up to 2-3 hours to complete depending on how much hair is transplanted. During the procedure, there is no scalpel incision, no sutures or staples used, which means there will be no linear scar on the back of the head. The average patient can return to work within a day or two. Exercise and strenuous activity should be avoided for about 1-2 weeks just to ensure the implanted area is safely healed. Results vary by patient, but most patients will see new hair growth within 4-6 months.
The cost of NeoGraft will depend on the amount of grafts needed to fulfill the patient’s aesthetic desires. Sometimes, multiple sessions may be needed. Generally, pricing for NeoGraft is charged by the graft, and can range from $4.50-$7.50 per graft. For some patients, 500 grafts is enough to make a noticeable difference. For others, 1,000, 1,500 or 2,000 may be needed to attain the desired results.

How Well Does it Work?@headingTag>
Men and women who are self-conscious about their thinning or balding hair can achieve desirable results with hair restoration through FUE using NeoGraft. Patients who undergo this procedure are pleased with the outcome. On average, patients can attain 50-60% of new hair growth within the first year following surgery.
FUE or Strips?@headingTag>
Regardless if a patient decides to go with FUE or the strip method, the results will appear the same. The difference is in the technique, as well as the invasiveness of the procedure and the outcome of the scalp where the hair was extracted. So, the primary difference between the two techniques is not in the visible results, but how the donor area is harvested either by a strip of scalp or by small individual graft extractions.
Small graft extraction using the FUE approach through NeoGraft offers numerous benefits. Including:
- Outstanding results
- A less invasive approach
- No scarring
- Quick recovery
- Effective hair growth
- Affordable compared to other methods
