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.
"Dr. Mentz is nothing short of a magician. I went to him for an abdominoplasty in November of 2015 and his work has been life changing. His "bedside manner" is equal to his skill. I did not, for one moment, feel spoken down to or intimidated by his brilliance. He was kind, professional and has a great sense of humor. This man is an artist."- J.R. / Facebook / Aug 16, 2017

- 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
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.
