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
"I recently had fillers at VIP and I can say that Dr. Khorsandi is the BEST in his field. His honesty and professionalism is so reassuring that I know with absolute certainty that I can trust him. Catherine is so polite and poised and she even helped me with my skin care regimen! A short few weeks later and I am already thrilled with the results! I will DEFINITELY be back soon for more fillers! Thank you again Dr. Khorsandi and Catherine!!!"- A.C. / Yelp / Jan 13, 2018
"Hi! I'm here to write about Melanie. VIP's Medical Aesthetician. Melanie is hands down the greatest. I've struggled with my skin since I was 12 years old and have seen many dermatologists and aestheticians and they've never explained MY skin to me. Just wrote me scrips or a previous PS gave me extreme laser that took FOREVER to heal. I've seen Melanie twice now and the first time I saw her she simply explained my skin type in a way that made sense to me. I had a laser treatment on the spot as she made time for me even though I was originally there for filler. I scheduled again months later for a laser and PRP and she did such an excellent job and really catered to my needs. Not to mention she's so charming and personable and makes you feel super comfy. I honestly wish I had access to her more. I don't even live in Vegas but make it a point to see her every time I'm in town."- K.D. / Yelp / Jan 04, 2018
"It's been a year and a half since my rhinoplasty and I really feel like I should post another five star review because I am so grateful to Dr. Koryasandy and the work he did. I never ever had any problems and if something my nose is stronger, my breathing is better and not to talk about how Pretty it looks. For all my future procedures I know where to go, and I recommend this place to anybody who wants to look better."- A.O. / Yelp / Dec 30, 2017
"I recently had my bbl with bodytite. I'm now 3 months post surgery and I couldn't be happier. Prior to coming to dr k I went to 2 other consults and I was not impressed at all until I came to vip. The office is so professional and clean. Very friendly staff. I can't say enough nice things about dr k. I had never heard of bodytite until i met dr. K. I was hesitant at first bc it was pricey but I am SO HAPPY I moved fwd with surgery and did bodytite. He liposuction my abs, back, sides, arms and injected fat to my bootie. He bodytite my arms, abs and back. My body looks AMAZING and I have no lose skin due to the bodytite. Catherine the manager is so nice and friendly and was always available for me no matter what time I bugged her. Dr Khorsandi is a true artist and really cares about his patients and results. My body looks amazing! It was worth every penny!!! I can't wait to do my nose next. I highly recommend this place. I've been getting my injections here for over a year as well and he does the best job in town. He doesn't ever rush you and always listens to your concerns and needs. Thank you dr khorsandi, Catherine and the rest of the staff. You guys are the best."- G.G. / Yelp / Dec 20, 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?
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?
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
