It is expected that roughly one in five people will experience hair loss at one point in their lives, many of them under the age of 30. While men make up a majority of hair loss victims, women also suffer from thinning hair and eyebrows, and occasionally baldness that starts from the middle of their heads. Countless people have turned to SmartGraft, a revolutionary hair transplant system that extracts individual hair follicles to restore the thinning or balding area. SmartGraft effectively restores volume and rebuilds hairlines without creating the scars that earlier hair transplant treatments created.

What is SmartGraft?

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.

SmartGraft Procedure

When will I see results?

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.

Am I a candidate for SmartGraft in Houston?

Most victims of hair loss are good candidates for SmartGraft, especially those who:

  • Want the freedom to have short haircuts without worrying about covering bald spots
  • Want an effective method of restoring their hair without invasive surgery and extended downtime
  • Want to hide an unsightly scar from an earlier hair transplant
  • Have enough hair on the back of their head that they are physically able to receive the transplant

What is the recovery like after the procedure?

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.

How much does it generally cost?

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.

How long do the results last?

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.

Will my results be noticeable?

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.
