Hair Transplant in Atlanta
If you are looking for hair transplant in Atlanta, you are not alone. Recent 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 for both men and women. Old fashioned 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. We offer scar-less hair transplant system.
As a leading innovative practice, we are always looking for way to bring the latest technology to Atlanta. After years of research and experience, we selected SmartGraft as our hair transplant method. We are the first medical practice in Georgia to offer SmartGraft to men and women.
According to the American Hair Loss Association (AHLA), women make up 40% of all hair loss sufferers in the United States. Approximately two-thirds of men have some degree of noticeable hair loss by age 35; by age 50, approximately 75% have significant hair loss. Men and women suffer from different types of hair loss; most women have diffuse thinning through the scalp, while men tend to have distinct patterns of baldness. Although hair loss can occur from stress, disease, or medications, most male hair loss is due to heredity.
SmartGraft hair transplant in Atlanta has none of the downtime and scars associated with traditional hair transplant. It 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.
