There are a number of surgical hair restoration options available today. The two most common methods are the strip method and follicular unit extraction (FUE). With the strip method, a section of scalp and hair is removed from the back of the head before being grafted into the hairline. This method will result in scarring and comes with general surgical risks such as excessive bleeding and infection. Due to these risks, our Austin surgical hair restoration doctors rarely offer the strip method.
FUE, using Neograft, is a more advanced, safer, and more effective method for surgical hair restoration. Our surgeons use NeoGraft, a minimally invasive, incredibly effective solution for surgical hair restoration.

The NeoGraft process requires no scalpels and will not result in a linear scar. With a small handheld device, NeoGraft removes single hair follicles from the donor area through slight rotation and gentle suction. The grafts are harvested in the direction of their growth so that the follicles are not damaged.
Surgical hair restoration is an ongoing process that requires a commitment of time. It is normal for grafted hair to shed within one to three weeks of implantation, and new growth may not start naturally for four to six months. However, once new growth starts, your hair will look healthy and natural for years to come.
During your surgical hair restoration consultation we will discuss the NeoGraft process in greater detail along with things such as:
