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.
"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
"Awesome - Such a talented doctor. He was able to take my breasts which were in bad shape after my previous surgeon messed them up, and make them look pretty again. I didn't take my top off for over two years in front of my husband. Now I can't wait for pool season. He is compassionate and caring to boot. Love Dr. Khorsandi."- Anonymous / Vitals / May 05, 2017
"First off I would love to thank patty for recommending me dr Khorsandi and also thank you for answering all my questions and making me feel so comfortable ! Idk where to start off by , but basically I'm 28 turning 29 and I just felt that I needed to feel more "womanly" so it's been years that I wanted a Breast agumentation i had what every woman has , one breast smaller than the other but to me it was such a big insecurity of mine like anyone else that has insecurities. So I finally decided I wanted to do this for myself . Went In for my consultation on March 2nd 2017. First of the place it's self LOVE it! The front desk girls super nice and professional and beautiful by the way :) I waited for Dr Khorsandi and first impression is that he made me feel comfortable I asked questions told him what I wanted , I did showed him what I thought I wanted but what I honestly loved about him is the fact that he kept it real with me and educated me on the implant placement , measurements, cc's and how because I was so small I couldn't risk putting a wrong implant size on me . He took pictures of me on the 3D simulator and I couldn't believe seeing myself with breast. We decided to do 450 on my left and 485 due to symmetry .After all that I set my apt to proceed to my final decision. Surgery was April 12th the day of surgery I was freaking out since I never had gone through no big surgeries ever but everyone at the surgery center was amazing ! Dr Khorsandi came in to mark me and just told me that everything will be fine and I'm going to look amazing so that just made me feel calm (I mean he does this like everyday ) I woke up feeling great! No pain at all I had a great recovery so far I'm loving my new girls, my scar is looking so good I'm now 3 weeks post op , I'm not just saying this to sound cliche but dr Khorsandi really has changed my life not just physically but now I feel so much happier and I feel like a brand new woman thank you dr Khorsandi again !"- D.C. / Yelp / May 03, 2017

"I love VIP Plastic Surgery. Dr. K and his staff are so helpful and friendly. I came in for lip fillers, laser hair removal, and tattoo removal. I am in love with how my lips turned out and at no point during all the procedures did I feel any pain! Melanie performed the tattoo removal and my second session of laser hair removal. She made sure I was comfortable, at ease, and felt no pain. She is absolutely amazing!!! Everyone is amazing!!"- J.Y. / Yelp / May 01, 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
