Am I a Candidate?

SmartGraft is appropriate for various individuals, but certain people may be better suited to it than others. SmartGraft might be the superior choice for you if you identify with any of the following:

  • You want the freedom to wear short hair without worrying about a noticeable scar.
  • You want the fewest restrictions on your activity after the procedure.
  • You have an existing scar from a past strip transplant and would like to conceal it.
  • You’re in generally good health and have enough hair at the donor site (typically the back of your scalp).

Even though SmartGraft is noted for its impressive results for a wide range of patients, people with thick, dense donor hair can expect superior results. Your consultation with Dr. Hasen will give you valuable insight into your specific options.

The Benefits of SmartGraft

The SmartGraft automated system is an advanced form of follicular unit extraction (FUE). It uses an automated pneumatic (air pressure) system to extract the hair follicles (follicular units or grafts), improving the process and the outcome.

High-Quality Grafts

With SmartGraft, the follicles aren’t manipulated with forceps or scalpels like they are in traditional procedures. SmartGraft works at a microscopic level, gently and smoothly removing the individual grafts and storing them in a protective canister during the procedure. This minimizes the risk of damage to the follicles and preserves their vitality.

No Linear Scars

The older strip method of hair restoration involved cutting a 1/2-inch by 7-inch strip of scalp from the back of the head. This produced discomfort and a longer recovery, and the resulting scar was often visible. SmartGraft gently extracts very small grafts with no visible scarring, even if the hair is worn very short. It can also be used to reduce the appearance of a scar left behind by a previous strip transplant. A scar reduction treatment can be performed regardless of whether or not the patient desires more hair. In most cases, both the width and the appearance of the original scar can be reduced by more than 50%.

The difference is evident in the following comparison photos of the strip method (left) versus the SmartGraft procedure:

Efficient & Less Invasive

Permanent hair restoration with SmartGraft is significantly quicker than with older, manual extraction techniques, enhancing the patient’s overall experience. Because the procedure is minimally invasive, there is little discomfort, low risk of complications, no sutures, and nearly imperceptible scarring.

Customized Results

Dr. Hasen can adjust SmartGraft treatments for different punch sizes and skin types. This, combined with Dr. Hasen’s aesthetic and surgical skills, produces natural-looking results that work with your unique facial characteristics.SmartGraft device

The SmartGraft Procedure

Before the procedure begins, we shave a small area at the back of the head. Dr. Hasen then numbs the scalp with a local anesthetic and applies the SmartGraft handpiece to the donor areas. The device gently extracts individual grafts from the scalp into the collection canister. Then, Dr. Hasen prepares recipient sites in the areas of thinning hair and transplants the skin and hair grafts.

Because it’s a minimally invasive procedure, recovery is quick with few activity restrictions. Following the procedure, patients usually experience minimal discomfort, often comparing the feeling to mild sunburn. Over-the-counter pain medications are usually all that is required to relieve discomfort. Most patients can return to work the following day.


After the procedure is complete, the transplanted hair follicles usually require about 3 months before they begin to grow new hair. During this time, you may see cycles of growth and shedding. This is a normal part of hair growth and no cause for alarm. After the 3-month milestone, new hair will grow normally from the transplanted follicles. Good results will be present after 6 months, and complete results will be visible after a year.

Keep in mind that SmartGraft minimizes the symptoms of hair loss. It does not stop the process. For this reason, some patients may require occasional maintenance procedures to touch up their results. This is especially true for patients whose hair loss results from aging. Dr. Hasen offers several different options for maintaining your results, each tailored to your lifestyle and personal preferences.
