SMARTGRAFT™ FUE FAQS
How Well Does It Work?
With the SmartGraft™ advantage, natural appearing hair restoration is crafted with a delicate touch and allows Dr. Orseck the ability to use his artistic eye to create life-changing, permanent results. Patients can wear their hair any length or style, as the transplants produce natural, normal hair growth. It’s important to note that hair loss is a progressive disease and that hair transplant surgery does not stop non-transplanted hair from continuing to thin and eventually bald. Therefore, further nonsurgical and/or surgical treatments may be needed to keep up with the rate of continuing hair loss.
The extracted grafts removed during the hair removal process will leave virtually undetectable, flat “micro-dots”. While SmartGraft™ FUE does not result in any noticeable scarring, these tiny “micro-dot” scars may be visible if the hair is completely shaved. You may shave your hair down to 1/8th of an inch (1 guard on an electric razor) without anyone noticing your scars.
The SmartGraft™ FUE technology can be performed on any color and type of hair. During the consultation, Dr. Orseck will specify any special requirements that must be taken prior to surgery.
Small graft extraction using the SmartGraft™ FUE approach offers numerous benefits, including:
- Minimally invasive without the use of a scalpel or stitches
- Precise and efficient extraction, collection, and storage of hair grafts
- Minimal post-operative pain
- Quicker recovery
- Virtually undetectable flat “micro-dot” scarring
Regardless if a patient decides to go with SmartGraft™ FUE or FUT (“strip method”), the results will appear similar. The difference is in the graft extraction technique along the donor area. You can learn more about the differences between these techniques by visiting our FUT/SMARTGRAFT™ FUE comparison page.
