Advantages of SmartGraft

SmartGraft is one of the most advanced hair restoration systems available today, offering impressive and natural-looking results without the pain or extended recovery associated with other hair transplant methods.

Here are some key advantages over traditional hair restoration techniques.

Minimally Invasive

SmartGraft is a minimally invasive procedure that eliminates the need for large incisions, linear scars, or stitches. This reduces scalp trauma during graft extraction and transplantation, minimizing the risk of linear scarring and infection.

Faster Recovery

With its minimally invasive nature, the procedure allows for a shorter recovery period compared to traditional methods. Most patients can return to their normal activities within a few days.

Natural-Looking Results

We provide natural-looking results using hair grafts that blend seamlessly with your existing hair. The precise extraction and transplantation process ensures that the new hair grows in the same direction and angle as your surrounding hair.

No Linear Scar

Unlike other hair transplant procedures and techniques that leave a visible linear scar on the scalp, this procedure uses micro grafts, leaving tiny, virtually invisible circular scars. This allows you to wear your hair at any length without worrying about visible scarring.

Single Visit

The entire procedure can be completed in a single session, typically lasting between 4 to 8 hours, depending on the extent of hair loss. The shorter procedure time minimizes the risk of compromised hair growth quality.


Hair loss can be addressed in various areas, including the hairline, crown, and eyebrows. This versatility makes it an ideal solution for patients with different types and degrees of hair loss.

How Does SmartGraft Work?

SmartGraft is a revolutionary hair restoration system that uses advanced technology to harvest hair follicles from the donor site and implant them in the balding area. The SmartGraft device allows the surgeon to extract individual hair follicles with precision, minimizing trauma to the donor area and ensuring a natural appearance.

The harvested hair follicles are then implanted in the balding area using the implantation device. This device creates small incisions in the scalp, perfectly sized to accommodate the hair follicles. The follicles are meticulously placed into the transplant areas, ensuring proper alignment, and positioning for optimal growth.

SmartGraft vs. Traditional Procedures

SmartGraft represents a significant advancement over traditional hair restoration procedures like follicular unit transplantation (FUT). Here are the key differences:

SmartGraft Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE):

This procedure is a minimally invasive hair restoration technique that extracts and transplants individual hair follicles precisely, resulting in a natural-looking hairline and superior control during the graft implantation process. It requires no large incisions, eliminating linear scarring and excessive discomfort.

Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT):

FUT, also known as strip harvesting, involves removing a strip of skin tissue from the scalp to extract hair follicles for transplantation. This technique often leaves a visible linear scar on the back of the head, especially with shorter hairstyles. The recovery time is often longer, and patients may experience increased pain and swelling at the incision site.

Why Choose SmartGraft?

This innovative procedure offers all the advantages of FUE procedures while incorporating the latest technology for a more efficient, accurate, and comfortable experience. It is the superior choice due to its minimally invasive nature, precision, efficiency, natural-looking results, and versatility.


After your procedure, the newly transplanted hair follows the natural growth cycle. The roots of the hair anchor within the first few weeks, followed by shedding. Around three months post-procedure, new healthy hair becomes visible, and noticeable improvement in hair growth occurs within six months. Full growth is typically achieved between 12 to 14 months after the procedure, resulting in a full head of hair that appears completely natural.

    Downtime and Recovery

    The hair restoration procedure involves a short downtime and recovery period. Most patients can resume their normal activities within a few days after the procedure. The scalp may be tender or sensitive for several days, but you will be able to wash your hair and resume regular activities within a few days. Proper aftercare instructions will be provided to ensure proper healing and minimize any potential risks. In some cases, you may be advised to avoid strenuous activities or heavy lifting for a short period after the procedure.

      Side Effects and Safety

      With proper aftercare, the risk of complications is minimal. Although rare, complications such as bleeding, infection, or scarring may occur. If you have a history of scalp surgeries or infections, it is important to discuss this with your treatment provider as it may affect your healing experience. SmartGraft hair restoration is an FDA-approved, minimally invasive, and safe method to restore hair loss.

        Frequently Asked Questions

        Are SmartGraft results permanent?

        Yes, SmartGraft provides a permanent solution to hair loss. However, it does not prevent further balding in untreated areas. We also offer natural injections to strengthen and maintain your hair growth.

        Is SmartGraft suitable for both men and women?

        Yes, SmartGraft is a viable option for both men and women due to its minimally invasive nature and ability to restore real hair.

        Can I have SmartGraft if I’ve had a FUT before?

        Yes, undergoing SmartGraft can even help camouflage prior scars from other procedures. Please inform us of your history of scalp surgery, and we will tailor your treatment accordingly.

        When will my hair start to grow after SmartGraft?

        After a hair transplant, newly transplanted hair undergoes natural growth phases. Typically, new hairs begin to grow approximately three months post-procedure. Hair’s appearance improves noticeably around six months, and full growth is usually achieved between 12 to 14 months.

        Do I have to get a buzz cut before SmartGraft?

        Yes, SmartGraft is effective for all hair types, including curly, wavy, and straight hair, as well as various colors. We will address any unique requirements you may have during your consultation.
