How long does it take to recover from SmartGraft Hair Restoration?

How long does it take to recover from SmartGraft Hair Restoration?SmartGraft is a less invasive, innovative, and highly automated medspa procedure to restore hair in targeted areas of the scalp. SmartGraft offers several advantages over traditional hair transplant surgery, including a much shorter recovery. During the initial consultation, the treatment provider will discuss all aspects of the procedure, including its estimated recovery.
Motykie Medical Spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, provides SmartGraft and various other procedures. It offers SmartGraft as an in-office procedure involving the use of only a local anesthetic. Motykie medical spa provides SmartGraft to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations.

Recovery Period

To begin with, SmartGraft medspa procedure can be provided only using a local anesthetic. This ensures that the patient does not have to suffer the nausea and discomfort that typically follows during recovery from general anesthesia. Secondly, SmartGraft technology involves the use of a fully automated hand-piece to extract grafts.
This ensures that the use of scalpel is entirely avoided, and the grafting can be performed in a more precise and less invasive manner. Surrounding healthy tissue is not harmed, and no linear scar will occur on the back of the head. The minimal disruption of skin and tissue ensures that the patient goes through little discomfort and recovers faster.
Total recovery time in case of SmartGraft is just one to two days. After this period, the patient can quickly return to their normal activities or go back to work. Healing is much faster with this procedure due to the minimally invasive treatment approach. Unlike traditional hair transplant surgery that can take up to several weeks for complete recovery, SmartGraft ensures a much quicker and easier recovery.
The procedure is particularly popular among working people and busy moms who normally do not want to undergo a procedure that involves a painful and prolonged recovery. Dr. Motykie’s medical spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for SmartGraft hair restoration.

Post-Operative Benefits

SmartGraft is a comfortable procedure due to the application of a local anesthetic. The patient remains awake through the procedure, but feels no pain. Many patients prefer to watch a movie or listen to music while the procedure is in progress. The comfortable level of the patient continues once the procedure is over.
From an aesthetic perspective, the patient will not be required to have a buzz cut. If the original hair at donor site is long enough, the treatment provider will harvest hair grafts by shaving small areas that can be camouflaged by the overlying longer hair. Post-operative activity restrictions are minimal after a SmartGraft procedure.
Unlike the traditional strip method of hair restoration, the SmartGraft procedure does not result in visible linear scarring. Grafts are removed using an automated process as individual micro grafts rather than a large strip that will require stitches.

Shorter Duration

The entire SmartGraft procedure can be completed in a single session lasting about five to six hours. Due to the automation capabilities and efficiency of the SmartGraft device, the harvesting part of the procedure can be completed in about one-third less time compared to other treatments. With SmartGraft, the treatment provider can harvest more grafts in less time. This cuts down the time period of the grafts that await implantation, which delivers better results.
