What is an FUE hair transplant?

FUE or Follicular Unit Extraction is an advanced, minimally-invasive hair transplant method which allows for the harvesting of individual follicles from the back of the head (donor area) without a scalpel or stitches, and therefore leaves no linear scar.

What are the main benefits of FUE over the traditional Strip Method or Linear Harvesting?

It is well-accepted that FUE transplants heal faster and are more comfortably than linear- harvest techniques which the physician uses a scalpel to removes a strip of scalp requiring stitches and a 6 week recovery time. With the minimally invasive FUE technique, the patient can return to work in a couple of days and once healing is complete, the patient has the option of wearing a very short haircut without the worry of a tell-tale linear scar. Without the need for stitches, downtime is shorter with fewer activity restrictions post-operatively.

What are some benefits of SmartGraft over other automated FUE devices?

The highly ergonomic light weight SmartGraft® handpiece works as a natural extension of the surgeons’ hand, allowing for faster and more accurate harvesting of hair follicles. The handpiece uses built in illumination to light up the surgical eld, SmartPunches beveled on the inside to assist in reducing transections rates. The device itself has programmable protocols that allow the surgeon to automatically adjust the frequency and duration of a sterile mist solution to keep the grafts moist while they are waiting for implantation. The SmartGraft also counts and separates the grafts based on the number of follicles in each graft reducing the amount of time needed by the technicians. SmartGraftTM surgeons and patients now reach their goal with less time in the procedure room.


Who is a good candidate for FUE using SmartGraft?

The majority of hair loss patients are candidates for the SmartGraft FUE procedure. Patients who would like the option of wearing a very short haircut in the back or sides of their scalp, or those who want the least amount of activity restriction (e.g. athletes) after their hair transplant procedure, may be good candidates for FUE with SmartGraft. FUE can also be used for ‘scar camou age’ procedures for patients who have had prior “Strip” procedures, surgical scars, as well as for body hair transplants.

What are the major cost differences between FUE and linear-harvest hair transplant procedures?

The fee structure for minimally invasive FUE hair transplant procedures re ect the more detailed and intricate nature of those procedures compared to those performed with more invasive linear harvest strip method but in most cases is very similar in pricing.

Are the final transplanted ‘results’ any different with FUE/SmartGraft than those achieved with linear harvesting?

Results are similar. FUE procedures, by default, yield grafts that contain mainly one, two, three, or four follicles called “follicular units.” Strips, or linear harvests, are surgically removed from the back of the scalp and are then microscopically dissected by a team of technicians into grafts of one, two or three follicles, would also yield similar ‘follicular-unit’ grafts. Provided that in each case the grafts are implanted with care, artistry and precision into the recipient area, the nal transplanted results with FUE would be similar, if not identical, to those accomplished with a linear harvest. The difference is not in the area of hair growth, but how the donor area is harvested either by a strip of scalp or by small individual graft extractions. Using the minimally invasive FUE technique leaves no linear scar.

Is FUE/SmartGraft suitable for both men and women?

Yes. Because FUE/SmartGraft is a minimally-invasive procedure, it is a viable option for both men and women looking to restore their own living and growing hair with transplantation.

Do I have to get a total ‘buzz cut’ to have an FUE/SmartGraft procedure?

No, if your hair is long enough, harvesting using the FUE/SmartGraft can be done by shaving small areas which can be covered by your other, existing hair.

Am I a good candidate for a procedure using FUE/SmartGraft?

The best way to determine whether you are a candidate for hair transplant using FUE/ SmartGraft is a one-on-one consultation with your doctor.

Frequently Asked Questions

SmartGraft FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) is a minimally-invasive hair transplant method that involves harvesting individual hair follicles from the donor area at the back of the head using a specialized handpiece. This technique does not require a scalpel or stitches and leaves no linear scar, allowing for a natural-looking hair growth within 9-12 months.

The SmartGraft device enhances the efficiency of the FUE procedure with features like a lightweight, ergonomic handpiece with built-in illumination, beveled punches to minimize transection, and automated protocols to keep grafts moist. It also counts and sorts follicles, reducing procedure time and improving accuracy.

Ideal candidates for SmartGraft FUE include individuals experiencing hair loss who prefer a very short haircut or minimal downtime post-procedure. It is also suitable for athletes, those looking to camouflage scars from previous hair transplants, and individuals considering body hair transplants.

Unlike the strip method, which involves removing a strip of scalp and requires stitches and extended recovery, FUE with SmartGraft is less invasive, allows quicker recovery, and the patient can resume normal activities within days without worrying about a visible scar.

The results from both FUE/SmartGraft and linear harvesting techniques are generally similar, as both methods produce natural-looking hair growth by transplanting follicular units. The primary difference lies in the harvesting method: FUE is less invasive and does not leave a linear scar.

No, a total buzz cut is not necessary if your hair is long enough. The procedure can be performed by shaving small sections that can be easily covered by your existing hair, making it less conspicuous.
