What Is a Virtual Consultation?
A virtual consultation is tailored to your preferred mode of communication. You may wish to connect via email, Skype, Zoom, FaceTime, or another method of your choosing. Whichever method for which you opt, Dr. Jezic will meet you more than halfway. He is booted up and eager to fulfill your hair restoration desires.
Before you connect with any medical practitioners online, it is important to understand your rights. Dr. Jezic is a champion of digital discretion. Your healthcare is your business. That is why Houston Hair Transplant Center provides a HIPAA compliant platform where we can discuss your concerns without violating your privacy. HIPAA stands for the “Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996.” Back in the mid-90s, online security was a relatively new concept. In order to keep your medical records safe, we will make sure you authorize us before embarking on a hair transplant journey that requires specific information, provided by you and you alone.
Dr. Jezic or one of his associates can explain the finer details of HIPAA, but suffice it to say: your details are protected when you consult with the team at Houston Hair Transplant Center.

Preparation and Procedure
During your consultation, you will receive detailed instructions to prepare you for hair restoration. Preparation may take many different forms, depending on which technique Dr. Jezic pursues your hair growth needs.
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)
Just like people, hairs are social creatures. Even though humans can’t cluster during a pandemic, hair certainly can. Dr. Jezic honors the natural pattern of hair growth by celebrating clusters, which are also called units. One unit may contain 1-3 hair follicles and can be selectively harvested from an area of vibrant hair growth – for example, the back of the head. The process of collecting healthy hair from a donor site is called follicular unit extraction (FUE).[2,3]
Dr. Jezic and his skilled squad of hair techs use the best devices on the market, including NeoGraft. The NeoGraft system automates the harvesting of healthy follicles and cradles them until they are ready for transplant. Dr. Jezic places healthy units of follicles along the area most in need of new growth.
If your donor site is not able to contribute enough viable follicles for transplantation, Dr. Jezic may recommend a different approach to hair restoration. Houston Hair Transplant Center offers a selection of topical solutions to address hair loss. For men, we may recommend finasteride (Propecia), and for women, Dr. Jezic might suggest minoxidil (Rogaine). The best prescription is the one that’s right for you. Connect with Dr. Jezic via a virtual consultation and let him guide the way to the new you.
Facial Hair Transplants
Once you appear on the screen for your digital appointment, be sure to show off your attractive mug. If you struggle with uneven facial hair growth, Dr. Jezic wants to know all about it. His hair transplant techniques can be tailored to beard growth, mustache assistance, and overall evenness of facial follicular fierceness.
Call (713) 864-2300 to learn more about our hair restoration options and to schedule an appointment with an attentive Houston Hair Transplant Center representative.
Recovery and Results
If you undergo a follicular unit extraction (FUE) procedure, the harvesting process will leave a series of tiny punctures the size of a pin along with your donor site. These will heal over the course of 3-5 days. Please do not rush the recovery process. Avoid irritating the site and be sure to keep it clean and dry, as your Houston Hair Transplant Center medical staff advises. Satisfaction is Dr. Jezic’s top priority. One look at our rave reviews illustrates how committed we are too amazing results. To join the scores of happy, healthy patients who have benefitted from Dr. Jezic’s expertise, schedule a virtual consultation now!
How much does hair restoration cost in Houston?
The price of hair restoration surgery depends on several factors, including technique (FUE, FUT, or other), type of technology used (ATERA, Neograft, robotic or other), number of sessions, and extent of the treatment area. Dr. Jezic can explain the costs associated with each restoration technique during your comprehensive consultation. Houston Hair Transplant Center is proud to offer transparent pricing at every stage of the restoration process. We will provide a budgetary breakdown before you embark on your journey of new hair growth.
