We hope that you enjoy browsing through these, and please do not hesitate to contact us for further questions or information.

  • WHAT IS SMARTGRAFT®?

    SmartGraft® is the most advanced minimally invasive hair restoration device for both men and women. Developed by physicians, medical scientists and engineers, SmartGraft® allows us to perform hair restoration procedures more efficiently, safely, and in less time while delivering natural, permanent results.

  • WHAT IS THE SMARTGRAFT® PROCEDURE LIKE?

    Using only local anesthetic, we use the SmartGraft® device to gently extract individual micro hair grafts from the back of a patient's head. These grafts are then implanted into the balding areas to regrow thick, healthy, natural hair.

  • WHAT KIND OF RESULTS SHOULD I EXPECT?

    The new hair grafts will grow in the areas that are bald or thinning, creating a fuller, natural looking head of hair. Since SmartGraft® works with a patient's real hair, the result looks completely natural and creates a more youthful appearance. Take a look at our results!

  • WHY SHOULD I CONSIDER SMARTGRAFT®?

    SmartGraft® is superior to other hair restoration devices because it provides better results in less time and is ideal for both men and women. SmartGraft® incorporates the most critical component of hair restoration, which is the ability for us to implant hair grafts in just the right spots to properly frame the face. For better results, SmartGraft® can harvest grafts from other parts of the body, such as the chest, back and face.

  • IS THE SMARTGRAFT® PROCEDURE PAINFUL?

    No. It’s an in-office procedure rather than a complicated surgery. We will use a local anesthetic to numb the area where we are working. Most of the time the patient can watch videos or listen to music while the procedure is being completed.

  • DOES A PATIENT'S HEAD HAVE TO BE SHAVED FOR THE SMARTGRAFT® PROCEDURE?

    No. If a patient's hair is long enough, we can harvest hair grafts using the SmartGraft® device by shaving small areas that can be covered by the patient's longer hair.

  • WHEN WILL HAIR START TO GROW?

    Newly transplanted hair grows naturally in several phases. A patient will notice new hairs in about 3 months, followed by a noticeable improvement in 6 months. Full growth will occur at 12 to 14 months.

  • WHAT IS THE RECOVERY PERIOD LIKE?

    The procedure heals quickly and is not painful. A patient can return to work in a couple of days. There are very few activity restrictions after the procedure.

  • AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR THE SMARTGRAFT® PROCEDURE?

    The majority of hair loss patients are candidates for the SmartGraft® procedure, particularly those who prefer short haircuts, want the least amount of activity restriction after their procedure, or those who have had a prior strip procedure and need a scar camouflage.

  • IS SMARTGRAFT® SUITABLE FOR BOTH MEN AND WOMEN?

    Yes. Because SmartGraft® is a minimally invasive procedure, it is a viable option for both men and women looking to restore their own natural hair.

  • HOW LONG DOES THE SMARTGRAFT® PROCEDURE TAKE?

    Typically 5-6 hours. The advanced SmartGraft® device can complete the harvesting portion of the procedure in one-third less time compared with other devices. This means that we can harvest more grafts in less time and reduce the amount of time the grafts are awaiting implantation, which gives the patient better results.

  • WILL THERE BE A VISIBLE LINEAR SCAR?

    No. Because the grafts are removed in individual micro grafts rather than a large strip requiring stitches, scaring is minimal and not visible. This is unlike traditional hair transplant procedures where scaring was inevitable.
