Hair loss affects men and women, both young and old. Now you can replace it quickly and discreetly using your own hair, with the precision of the SmartGraft® procedure, in less time than many other FUE methods.
SmartGraft® is a minimally invasive hair restoration tool that offers a permanent solution to hair loss for both men and women. Developed by medical professionals, scientists, and engineers, SmartGraft® enables physicians to perform hair restoration procedures efficiently, safely, and quickly while providing natural, lasting results.
SmartGraft® is an excellent choice for individuals seeking a long-term solution to hair loss. It employs cutting-edge technology and precision craftsmanship instead of a scalpel. Compared to many other FUE methods, SmartGraft® allows for greater accuracy and shorter procedure times. Patients can typically return to work within one or two days, and the results appear and feel entirely natural. You will receive detailed instructions on how to prepare for the procedure day.
The first step is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Rapaport. During your consultation, he will evaluate your medical history and scalp before proposing a plan tailored to your specific goals. Dr. Rapaport and his team will also provide a detailed explanation of the procedure and determine the number of grafts required to achieve natural-looking and effective results.
Upon arrival on the day of your treatment, you will be escorted to a private room where the procedure will take place. Your treatment team will explain each step of the procedure once again and obtain your approval before proceeding. In most cases, a mild sedative can be given to help you relax. Next, a small area at the back of your head will be shaved, and a local anesthetic will be applied to numb the implantation site.
While your scalp is anesthetized, the physician will utilize the SmartGraft® device to gently extract the grafts from the donor area. The SmartGraft® system allows for immediate collection, sorting, counting, and storage of each graft in a temperature-controlled and hydrated environment, enhancing graft survival and improving the ability to regrow for better results.
After all the grafts have been harvested, the implantation site is prepared by applying a local anesthetic. We will then strategically create tiny openings for graft implantation, considering the angle, density, and placement of each graft, as these factors significantly impact the results' natural appearance.
Developed by a team of physicians, medical scientists, and engineers, SmartGraft® offers an alternative to the traditional strip method, which often leaves visible linear scarring. The SmartGraft® system is minimally invasive, completed in-office during a single visit, and produces permanent results.
One of the key benefits of SmartGraft® is the natural-looking results it produces, as it uses your own hair to fill in balding spots. Additionally, the individual micro grafts used in the procedure result in minimal scarring and a shorter recovery time than traditional procedures. The procedure typically takes about five hours, and most patients are able to resume normal activities with very little downtime. Hair growth can be noticeable within the first three months, with full growth realized within one year.
SmartGraft® is an excellent option for most individuals with hair loss, especially those who prefer short hairstyles, minimal post-procedure activity restrictions, or require scar camouflage after a previous strip procedure. If you're interested in SmartGraft®, schedule a consultation with Dr. Rapaport to learn more.
The recovery time for the SmartGraft® procedure is quick, allowing patients to return to work within a few days with few activity restrictions. The transplanted hair grows naturally in phases, with new hairs visible after about three months, significant improvement after six months, and full growth at 12 to 14 months.
The micrografts used in SmartGraft® result in minimal scarring, unlike traditional hair transplant procedures that involve a large strip of scalp requiring stitches. With SmartGraft®, patients can wear any hairstyle they like and enjoy a fuller, natural-looking head of hair. This can help restore a more youthful appearance and boost confidence levels since the hair is real and looks completely natural.
