A full head of hair can represent attractiveness and desirability, but around 50 million men and 30 million women suffer from baldness or thinning hair. Hair restoration technology can restore confidence back into your life. At his Houston office, triple board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Henry Mentz uses the NeoGraft system, a minimally invasive hair transplant method which will produce natural and long lasting results. The FDA-cleared system includes the removal, collection, and placement of individual hair follicles, eliminating the need for doctors to remove a large strip from the back of the scalp (a procedure known as Follicular Unit Transplant or STRIP FUT). The removal of each hair follicle is known as “Follicular-Unit Extraction” or FUE, a procedure that has been on the market for several years but has been perfected to make it affordable and less time consuming for patients. In addition, NeoGraft can be performed on both men and women. The ideal candidate will have adequate hair counts in the donor site and realistic expectations of what the results will be.
"I had an amazing experience. Would do it again. - I was lucky to choose Dr. Mentz as my surgeon. I am 13 days out at this time so still early in the recovery process but I am very satisfied with my progress. I had the remainder of my sutures removed yesterday and am looking forward to the future with my new much improved face. Dr. Mentz and his "family" of caring staff are beyond what everyone should look for in a PS. I know I chose the best!! - - I was lucky to choose Dr. Mentz as my surgeon.

"Dr. Mentz is the best of the best! His skill and artistry is second to none. He is by far, the most caring doctor I've met, with safety Top priority. His office staff is just as kind and professional. After losing a great deal of weight, I had a lot of extra and loose skin. Even with Bootcamp 5 days a week and spin class, I was disappointed and embarrassed with my body, especially naked. Dr. Mentz did my lower face and neck In January. I can't, nor can anyone else see where the incisions were and it looks just as if I've aged very well. A month ago, Dr. Mentz did extensive body work. It hasn't even all settled. I'm still swollen, but I'm beyond thrilled. My body is already so much improved and I look so much better! My incisions are straight and low on my lower body. The part where tape is off, I'm amazed at my healing already. My scarring is going to be unnoticeable. My breasts are now perfect. I got improvement, in places I wasn't even expecting, nor do I know how Dr. Mentz pulled it off. Needless to say, I'm over the moon! I can't wait until I'm released to exercise and hit the level of fitness I was going into surgery. In surgeon shopping, Dr. Mentz is pricey, but with him, you get what you pay for. He is worth every penny. You can't go wrong with him as your surgeon. Dr. Mentz delivers incredible results!"- J.G. / Google / Dec 28, 2016

- Donor Hair Removal
The NeoGraft transplantation process begins with hair being removed from the donor area in the back of the head, an area where your hair is genetically resistant to thinning.
- Dissection of the Follicular Units
Each graft is taken out with the same speed, diameter and length, resulting in a dramatically increased extraction rate.
- Creation of the Recipient Sites
The hair transplant surgeon or technician creates recipient sites in the proper angle, direction, and orientation.
- Placement of the Hair Graft
The hair follicle units are carefully separated by size. The grafts are inserted into the balding and thinning areas of your scalp.
Once the hair follicle has been implanted into the balding area, the grafted hair will stay in place for about two to three weeks before shedding. After shedding, the process of new growth will begin in 3 to 4 months. After that time period, the hair will grow normally, with natural looking results.

Hair Transplant FAQs@headingTag>
Hair loss will not stop after the procedure, some individuals may need continuous treatment with preventative hair loss drugs and/or multiple hair restoration sessions, particularly if you’re balding patterns continue with age. An estimate of balding patterns and the number of procedures will be discussed in consultation.
The price will be $8 – $8.50/graft. For cases needing 2000+ grafts and up, the price will be dropped to $8/graft and for cases of 1999 grafts and lower, the price will go up to $8.50/graft.
In addition to the top of the head, the NeoGraft system can perform non-scalp procedures such as eyebrow transplant for individuals with thinning or fading eyebrows.
