With the aging process, there usually comes hair loss and thinning hair. It may occur when you are in your 20s, or it may start when you are in your 40s. For most men and women, hair loss is genetic. That is why Dr. Richard Moore and his team of hair restoration specialists in St. Louis offers NeoGraft FUE Hair Transplantation as a safe and effective option for permanent, natural hair restoration.
NeoGraft advanced FUE hair transplantation is one of the most advanced FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) methods of hair transplantation, extracting donor hair follicles from the back of the patient’s head in groups of 1-4 hairs each, and then implanting them in the areas of the scalp where hair loss has occurred. The process is minimally invasive, and there is no “strip harvesting” or unsightly scar.
The NeoGraft FUE hair transplant procedure offers the most natural-looking outcomes imaginable, and is perfect for individuals with limited amounts of donor hair. It is also perfect for repairing and masking previous strip-method transplant scars.
Unlike traditional FUT follicular unit transplantation and it’s associated scarring, NeoGraft FUE hair transplants offer excellent recovery times, virtually no noticeable scarring, and enhanced survival rates for transplanted hair.

- No unsightly linear scars, stitches or staples
- Hair can be styled or worn as short as desired after post-operative hair regrowth
- Shorter recovery time with natural looking results

Recovery and Results
Following a NeoGraft hair transplant procedure, Dr. Moore will provide complete aftercare instruction to help ensure that your post-operative recovery goes as smoothly as possible. The vast majority of patients can return to work within 24 hours, with few restrictions on their lifestyle or activities. Within 3-4 weeks, the transplanted donor hair will begin to shed as part of the normal hair growth and regrowth cycle and new hair growth will begin.
Noticeable early results of your hair transplant procedure will typically be seen in approximately three months, with noticeable improvement and new hair growth seen in six months. A full head of robust hair growth will occur within 12 to 14 months after your transplant procedure.
