What Are The Benefits Of The SmartGraft Procedure?

Dr. David Shusterman is committed to helping our patients receive the optimal results when it comes to hair restoration. That is why we’ve chosen to utilize the SmartGraft method. This minimally invasive procedure comes with many benefits to our patients, some of which include the below:

  • SmartGraft allows for a natural, healthy look.
  • By using the micrografting process, scarring is more minimal.
  • It is a singular, in-office procedure.
  • The recovery period is short.   

What To Expect During The Procedure?

During the procedure, the site where hair follicles will be harvested is shaved. Local anesthesia will then be applied to the area where the harvested follicles will be inserted. Our doctor will create strategic openings in the scalp that will offer the best chance of success when the follicles are placed. Expect the procedure to last around 5 hours. Most patients can return to work the following day without issues. However, it takes a few days before being able to return to more vigorous activities. Dr. David Shusterman also wants patients to remember that due to the nature of the procedure, you won’t see a difference overnight. It will take months before the follicles spread and grow into a healthy head of hair.
