What is Hair Restoration?

Hair Restoration is an innovative hair-transplant procedure. It is minimally invasive and uses micro-transplants of hair follicles to create hair growth in specific areas.

These isolated hair follicles are then stored in a controlled environment until they are transplanted into the needed areas. Precision and proper placement are vital in achieving natural-looking results.

Benefits of Hair Restoration

Our New York City Hair Restoration patients have been able to experience the following benefits from their hair restoration treatments:

  • Minimally Invasive: Virtually no discomfort or interruption of lifestyle
  • Expert harvesting: Less time in the doctor’s chair, in and out in a day
  • Not gender specific: Ideal for both men and women of all hair types
  • Natural results: Hair grows naturally and completes in a period between 9 months to a year
  • More transplant options: Solve permanent hair loss in other areas (body & facial hair, eyebrows)

Best Candidates for the Hair Restoration Procedure

If you have spent too much time and money trying different products for hair restoration, it may be time to explore SmartGraft Hair Restoration for a reliable hair-regrowth approach.

If you start to notice bald spots on your scalp due to heredity or aging, you may be a good candidate for a SmartGraft hair transplant. It is important to maintain a positive outlook and have ample hair growth in your donor areas.

What’s the First Step?

Your initial appointment with one of our surgeons will be a consultation session that will involve a physical examination. Your surgeon will look at your target areas and will assess the donor areas to ensure you have enough hair for transplantation. Your medical history will be discussed, especially your scalp health, along with the current medications you are taking and past surgeries.

Expectations on the Day of Hair Restoration Surgery

The first step to your hair restoration procedure is preparing the donor site. Your hair will be cut short or shaved to make it easy to extract hair follicles. The implantation sites will be numbed with a local anesthetic. Small incisions will be made on the target sites. After the micrografts have been harvested, they will be meticulously placed in the incisions.

Depending on the size of the implant region, the whole procedure could take up to five hours. Due to the minute incisions made, post-surgical marks are minimal and barely visible. It may take 3 to 6 months before you start to see noticeable changes on your scalp.

Hair Restoration Recovery

There is no significant downtime or recovery period needed after your transplant. You may go back to work within a few days. You will be informed about hair products to use and the proper way to wash your hair. It may take a few days before you can go back to your usual hair-care routine.

Cost of Hair Restoration in New York City

The cost of Hair Restoration in New York City varies from patient to patient. It is tailored to meet each patient’s hair-loss needs. The overall price will depend on the extent of the work done and the anesthetic used.
