hair transplant austin texas (tx)

SmartGraft is the name of an advanced surgical technology that assists trained surgeons performing minimally invasive hair restoration surgery (FUE).

SmartGraft is an innovative device designed to enhance the physician’s speed and efficiency increasing graft viability while reducing transection rates. The device also counts and separates the grafts by the number of follicles, and protects them in a sterile controlled environment until they are ready to be implanted.

Hair Loss in Men and Women

SmartGraft Hair Restoration

Over 50 million men suffer from hair loss, 40% of men have noticeable hair loss by age 35 and 65% by age 60. For many men, hair loss is inevitable. It is a hereditary condition that increases with age. These genes may be passed from either the maternal or paternal side. Approximately 30 million women suffer from hair loss, 40% of women have noticeable hair loss by age 40. The reasons for hair loss in women often have to do with heredity. Other reasons include hormonal changes, stress, illness, and poor nutrition.

What Are the Benefits of the SmartGraftTM Method of Hair Restoration?

The key benefits of FUE surgery performed with SmartGraft are:

  • Least invasive procedure for hair transplantation, patients feel little to no discomfort
  • No linear scar or numbness where the donor hair is harvested
  • No stitches or staples
  • Shorter, more comfortable recovery
  • Very short haircuts are possible after surgery
  • Less activity restrictions after surgery, patients can typically go back to work the next day
  • Transplants roughly twice as many hair grafts as manually performed FUE surgery
  • Cuts the cost of manual FUE treatment by as much as half and in some cases reduces the need for additional surgeries.

Until now, FUE-type hair transplants were labor-intensive and time consuming, which meant that patients had to undergo long multiple surgeries to get the desired effect. Now that a more efficient automated device is available, doctors can double the number of grafts transplanted per session or shorten procedure times, saving patients both time and money.

What’s the SmartGraftTM Procedure Like?

The surgeon using the SmartGraft hand piece, gently extracts individual micro hair grafts from the back of your head. The grafts are immediately collected, counted, sorted and held in a sterile controlled environment. These grafts are then implanted into the balding area to regrow thick, healthy, natural hair. Platelet rich plasma, drawn from your own blood by venipuncture and concentrated by centrifuge, may also be used to speed healing of the micrografts after Dr. Walden injects it as well as uses it topically on the surface of the scalp.

Why Choose a Surgeon Using SmartGraftTM?

There are several older technologies currently available to hair restoration surgeons including automated devices, and even a robot however, they are still fundamentally slow. The SmartGraft technology was designed to provide better visualization for the physician, extract, sort and count the grafts automatically and eliminate a lot of the time consuming physical manipulation of the instrumentation and the grafts themselves.

This revolutionary new technology can reduce harvesting time by 1/3 rd of the other existing technologies. The time savings allows the surgeon to perform larger cases in less time. The follicles can be re-implanted sooner which increases the viability the new grafts.

What Kind of Results Should I Expect?

Your new hair grafts will grow in the areas that are bald or thinning, according to a well thought out strategic plan, 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.

Do I Have to Get a Buzz Cut to Have a SmartGraftTM procedure?

No, a physician can harvest hair grafts using the SmartGraft by shaving small areas that can be covered by your longer hair.

Is the SmartGraftTM Procedure Painful?

No. It’s an in-office, outpatient procedure rather than a complicated surgery. The surgeon will use a local anesthetic to numb the area he/she is working. Most of the time you can watch videos or listen to music while the procedure is going on.

What Is the Recovery Period Like?

The procedure heals quickly and is not painful. 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. New hairs are seen in about three months after the procedure and will continue to grow. At about six months you will see a noticeable improvement with 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 minimal and is not visible. Even if you wear your hair short, there is no visible telltale linear scars associated with older traditional methods.

Is SmartGraftTM 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 SmartGraftTM?

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. Consult a trained surgeon using the SmartGraft technology to find out more.

How Long Does the SmartGraftTM Procedure Take

Because of the technological advancements and the increase in efficiency of the SmartGraft device, the harvesting portion of the procedure is 1/3 rd less than other FUE methods. This means a physician can harvest more grafts in a single session and significantly reduce the amount of time the grafts are in a storage solution.
