ATLANTA, March 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- SmartGraft, a revolutionizing minimally invasive hair restoration treatments for both men and women results in a full and natural-looking hairline with none of the downtime or visible scars associated with traditional hair transplants. As a leading innovative practice, Georgia Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery in Atlanta & Marietta is the first medical practice in Georgia to offer SmartGraft to men and women.
Studies show that about 50 million Americans, including as many as 21 million women, suffer from hair loss. Hair loss can lead to low self-esteem, anxiety and, depression. Traditional hair transplant procedures, called strip harvesting require surgeons to cut a large portion of the scalp from the back of the head. This causes pain, large scar and requires 6 to 8 weeks recovery time. SmartGraft has none of the downtime and scars associated with traditional hair transplant.
"SmartGraft is scarless, its your hair, & its natural," say Dr. Stanley Okoro, a board certified Plastic Surgeon at Georgia Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery
SmartGraft uses revolutionizing Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) technologies and techniques. During the procedure, using only local anesthesia, individual graft are gently removed one by one from the donor area using an advanced (smart) hand-piece. There's no scalpel incision, virtually no pain, no stitches, and no linear scar. These grafts are automatically counted, sorted and placed in a temperature controlled holding canister where they are kept moist and robust until implantation. Because the hand-piece and the SmartGraft device eliminate manual processes, the procedure time is drastically reduced; the grafts get implanted quicker and survive better. SmartGraft has a 92 -98% take rate, so pretty much every single hair follicle that is taken out will grow. Most patients can go back to work the next day and can resume normal physical activities in just a few days.
