SmartGraft is an innovative new minimally-invasive FUE (follicular unit extraction) system that assists surgeons to transplant individual hair follicles to restore a natural-looking hairline. The procedure starts with a detailed transplant plan where Dr. Lyos will design a plan to best accomplish your goals. Once the plan is established, the donor site (usually the back of your head) will be shaved and prepared for extraction.
Dr. Lyos will then apply a local anesthetic to the back of your scalp and begin the extraction process. Because SmartGraft allows Dr. Lyos to extract individual follicles, the minimal scarring is virtually invisible, and the procedure is almost painless.
Once sufficient follicles have been extracted, the follicles will then be inserted into your scalp in a detailed pattern that recreates natural-looking and full hair, giving you a more youthful and vibrant look.
Because hair grows in several phases, it will be about three months before you start to see new hair growth. Within six months, you will begin to see a significant improvement, and within 12 to 14 months, your new hairline will be fully grown out.
Most victims of hair loss are good candidates for SmartGraft, especially those who:
Because SmartGraft hair transplants are minimally invasive, the recovery period is usually only one to two days, after which you can return to work and your normal activities with virtually no restrictions. You may experience slight bruising and discomfort in the affected areas of your scalp, but any discomfort typically rapidly fades.
The price usually runs at $5 to $6 per graft, and most patients require an average of 1,000 -1,500 grafts for their treatment. Follow-up maintenance treatments can be done as needed, and they usually require significantly fewer grafts.
Because SmartGraft transplants your own living hair follicles, the results are very long-lasting. Your hair will continue to grow and flourish, in some cases for the rest of your life. It should be noted, however, that hair transplants don’t stop hereditary baldness. If you would naturally continue to lose hair, the hair loss process will not stop because of a transplant. If you suffer from continued hair loss after your SmartGraft treatment, we offer further treatments to maintain your improved hair.
Results from SmartGraft transplants can be dramatic and very visible. Once your new hair has grown out, you can expect to have a noticeably thickened or restored hairline.
