SmartGraft is the newest innovation in hair transplant procedures offered by Dr. Glenn Charles
. There are significant advancements with the SmartGraft when compared to similar devices. The major advancement is the introduction of the first and only “closed harvesting system.” This new method is revolutionizing the way physicians will now be performing minimally invasive hair restoration procedures.
Is SmartGraft Right for Me?
Both men and women can benefit from the SmartGraft hair-transplant procedure. Patients looking for a permanent hair-restoration solution are the best candidates for SmartGraft.
People who are suffering from hair loss and baldness in certain areas but have ample hair in other regions are suitable candidates for a SmartGraft hair-restoration procedure.
Your SmartGraft Consultation
During your visit, you and Dr. Charles will discuss your medical history and the current health of your scalp. He will examine your scalp and determine if SmartGraft is the ideal solution for your hair. Dr. Charles will tell you about the potential results of the procedure, and a treatment plan will be created.
Once a procedure has been scheduled, instructions will be given to you to prepare for your procedure. Feel free to ask questions at any time during your consultation.
The SmartGraft Procedure
The procedure may last up to five hours. Topical anesthesia will be administered, and the patient might receive a mild sedative to make the SmartGraft procedure comfortable.
Individual grafts from the donor area are gently removed using a suction assisted rotating cannula and are directly transported to an environmentally controlled (temperature, moistness and light) storage canister, all in one movement of the physician’s hand.
While awaiting transplantation in the holding canister, the grafts are kept most and robust by frequent showers of sterile solution. Utilizing a “state of the art” circulating cooling system exclusive to the SmartGraft, our doctor can control the temperature of grafts, keeping them cold while waiting transplantation.
Preliminary observation suggests that graft yields may be superior using this technology. By automating the procedure process and eliminating many unnecessary manual steps including manual extraction, the time required for this minimally invasive procedure is less than half the time of other techniques and devices. This time savings along with the extremely efficient “closed harvesting system,” allow the grafts to remain more pristine and robust prior to transplantation. By eliminating the multiple use of forceps tugging, pressing and pulling on each graft during harvesting and collection, we reduce the risk of damaging the follicles giving them the best chance of optimum regrowth. The procedure itself is a minimally invasive procedure where by individual follicular units containing 1-4 hairs are extracted from the back of the scalp via the SmartGraft system. Our patients experience little to no pain and there is no visible linear scar when compared to the “strip procedure”.
You will not be disappointed!
Just had a hair transplant procedure one week ago and let me tell you how efficient and caring Dr. Charles and his team were! I visited several surgeons over the years and Dr. Charles was the most honest, compassionate, and artistic. If you want a solution to your hair loss needs, please do not hesitate to reach out to Dr. Charles. You will not be disappointed!
In cases where the patient will receive a mild sedative for the operation, they will need to arrange a ride home in advance. The patient will receive instructions on how to properly take care of the hair and scalp during recovery. Patients can usually resume normal activity within 48 hours excluding strenuous exercise when done via SmartGraft. We incorporate all the latest techniques in hairline design to ensure your transplant will look natural, after all, as you know, the best transplants are the ones you cannot tell are transplants. The patient can expect a complete cycle of natural hair growth in around nine months to a year.
The Cost of SmartGraft
The cost of SmartGraft varies depending on the treatment plan and the target areas of the scalp. It also depends on the price of any prescribed medications and facility fees. Make sure to ask your health insurance provider about whether they will cover the cost of this procedure.
