Get Smart about your hair loss
SmartGraft® is a smart option for both men and women searching for a permanent solution to hair loss. SmartGraft® uses a combination of precision craftsmanship and state-of-the-art technology rather than a scalpel.
The procedure can be done with more precision in less time than many other FUE methods. Patients can go back to work in one or two days, and results look and feel completely natural. Instructions on what to do to get prepared for the day of the procedure will be given to you.
SmartGraft uses FUE (follicular unit extraction) technology which can be one simple solution for hair loss in both men and women. The SmartGraft system was developed by a leading team of physicians, medical scientists, and engineers who understood the importance of helping to assist physicians with their FUE surgeries to give patients an alternative to the visible linear scarring that occurs with the traditional strip method.
SmartGraft uses a less intrusive method to restore hair loss than the strip method. Through a process known as “fue hair restoration,” SmartGraft uses your own hair to produce the most natural results. The procedure is completed in-office, during a single visit, which means less discomfort and less recovery. And the best part? SmartGraft produces permanent results.

The SmartGraft Experience
When researching hair restoration procedures, it’s important to understand how the SmartGraft procedure works, what to plan for ahead of time, what to expect during the procedure, and when you will see results.
The Actual Procedure
The area where the hair is to be implanted will be prepped and local anesthetic will be applied to numb the area. While your scalp is anesthetized, the physician will use the SmartGraft device to gently remove the grafts from the donor area.
After the Procedure
Your physician will give you comprehensive instructions on what to expect in the coming weeks and how to care for your newly transplanted hair. Most physicians recommend that you shampoo the day after the procedure using a “cup wash” method which will be explained to you.
Your New Hair Experience
You will see new hair in about three months, followed by a noticeable improvement in six months and full growth at 9 to 12 months. Once your new hair has grown in, you will be able to care for it just like when you had it the first time!
Got questions? We’ve got answers!
What is SmartGraft?
SmartGraft is a minimally invasive hair restoration device for both men and women. Developed by physicians, medical scientists and engineers, SmartGraft allows physicians to perform hair restoration procedures with efficiently, safely, and rapidly, while delivering natural, permanent results.
What is the SmartGraft procedure like?
Using only local anesthetic, physicians use the SmartGraft device to gently extract individual micro hair grafts from the back of your head. These grafts are then implanted into the balding areas to regrow thick, healthy, natural hair.
What kind of results should I expect?
Your new hair grafts will grow in the areas that are bald or thinning, creating a fuller, natural looking head of hair. Since it’s your real hair, it looks completely natural, restoring a more youthful appearance and confidence levels.
Why should I consider SmartGraft?
- It’s ideal for both men and women.
- It incorporates the most critical component of hair restoration — the ability for your physician to implant hair grafts in just the right spots to properly frame your face.
- It can harvest grafts from other parts of the body, such as chest, back and face, for better resultsI
Do I have to get a buzz cut to have a SmartGraft procedure?
No. If your hair is long enough, a physician can harvest hair grafts using the SmartGraft by shaving small areas that can be covered by your longer hair.
What is the recovery period like?
The procedure heals quickly and you can return to work in a couple of days, with very few activity restrictions after the procedure.
When will my hair start to grow?
Newly transplanted hair grows naturally in several phases. You’ll see new hairs in about three months, followed by a noticeable improvement in six months and full growth at 12 to 14 months.
Will there be a visible linear scar?
No. Because the grafts are removed in individual micro grafts rather than a large strip requiring stitches, scarring is minimal and not visible (unlike with traditional hair transplant procedures). Wear any hairstyle you like!
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 real hair.
Am I a good candidate for a procedure using SmartGraft?
The majority of hair loss patients are candidates for the SmartGraft procedure, particularly those who would like to wear very short haircuts, want the least amount of activity restriction after their procedure, or have had a prior strip procedure and need a scar camouflage.
