Hair Restoration


Hair Restoration Knoxville Tennessee

Shedding approximately 50 to 100 hairs per day is normal. However, since our scalps have around one million strands of hair, the amount of hair loss won’t cause any noticeable thinning. Gradual thinning is also a normal part of the overall aging process. As we grow older, our hair will start to thin out naturally.

What Causes a Noticeable Amount of Hair Loss?

Up to as many as one-third of all women and men are affected by hair loss and it can sometimes start early in life.

Hair loss in men has several different causes. However, male pattern baldness is the most common cause. Around 95% of all cases are accounted for by this kind of hair loss. Usually, it is caused by a combination of heredity and hormonal activity. Hair follicles within the scalp become smaller, and a shorter hair growth cycle develops over time. Typically men start to notice hair loss on the top of their scalp and/or around their hairline.

Hair loss in women may be triggered by a number of different medical conditions and also various lifestyle factors including childbirth, diets, and extreme stress. Some of the medical hair loss causes in women include the following:

Alopecia areata, where the immune system of the body mistakenly attacks hair follicles that are healthy which causes the person’s hair to start falling out in patches.

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). This is a chronic hormonal imbalance that has numerous side effects associated with it, including hair loss.

Thyroid problems (too little or too much thyroid hormone is produced).

There are a number of different reasons why hair loss may occur, including certain diseases and medications, genetics, and irreversible damage that develops over time from excessive tension. No matter what the problem is, hair loss is experienced by both women and men of all races and ages.

Reasons Why You Should Opt For SmartGraft® Hair Transplants

Advanced follicular unit extraction (FUE) automated hair transplant technology is used by SmartGraft®. A leading hair transplant team of engineers, medical researchers, and doctors developed the SmartGraft® system. These team of engineers, medical researchers and doctors understood how important it was to provide physicians with assistance with FUE surgeries to provide patients an alternative solution compared visible linear scarring which occurs when strip hair transplant traditional methods are used.

SmartGraft® utilizes advanced FUE Hair Transplant Restoration technology in order to use your very own hair so that the most natural results are produced. The procedure is performed in one visit and in-office, which means a shorter recovery time and less discomfort for the patient. The best part of all is that permanent results are produced by SmartGraft®. 

The following benefits are offered by SmartGraft® FUE hair transplants:

  • A totally natural look. Since your own natural hair is used for filling in balding spots, it produces the most healthy look and natural results possible.
  • A minimal amount of scarring. In contrast to other traditional procedures where large strips of hair must be restored and removed, individual micrografts are used by Smart Graft so that the linear scar is eliminated.
  • In-office, single procedure. The procedure is performed inside of a doctor’s office and normally lasts for around five hours.
  • Practically no downtime. There is a short recovery period and typically patients are able to wash their hair within a couple of days.

The SmartGraft® Process

The FUE Hair Restoration process used by SmartGraft® works at the microscopic level. It extracts one to four hair follicles at once from a part of the head that is “bald resistant” and that has healthy hair. Most often it is on the back of the head. Then your doctor will impact the micro hair grafts to the targeted areas to produce the most healthy, natural results. Also, since the graft works at a very small level, unlike other transplantation methods, it does not produce any noticeable linear scarring.

The “Closed Harvesting System”

A “closed harvesting system” is used by the SmartGraft® hair restoration process. Hair follicles get removed during the process from the donor area utilizing a rotating cannula. The cannula uses programmable suction to remove the hair follicle carefully. This computer technology is able to count every extracted hair graft with great precision. The hair grafts are stored inside of a controlled and specialized cannister at the proper temperature. They are kept moist until it is time for them to be transplanted into the thinning parts of the head.


Frequently Asked Questions

What does the SmartGraft® procedure involve?

With only local anesthetic used, the SmartGraft® device is used by the physician to extract individual micro hair grafts gently from the back of the head. Then the grafts are implanted in the blading areas in order to regrow natural, thick hair.

What type of results can I expect to get?

The new grafts of hair will grow in the thinning or bald areas to create a natural and fuller looking head of hair. It has a completely natural appearance since it is your real hair, to restore your confidence level and youthful appearance.

Why should I choose SmatGraft?

  • It is ideal for both women and men.
  • The most critical hair restoration component is incorporated – the ability of the physician to implant hair graft in the right areas to reframe your face properly.
  • The system has the ability to harvest grafts from other areas of the body, such as the face, back, and chest, to produce better results.

To have the SmartGraft® procedure will I need to get a buzz cut?

No, as long as your hair is long enough, the physician will be able to use the SmartGraft® to harvest hair graft by shaving small areas that your longer hair can cover.

What does the recovery period entail?

The procedure will heal quickly which will allow you to return to work in a few days. After the procedure, you will have very few activity restrictions.

When can I expect my hair to start to grow?

Hair that is newly transplanted naturally grows in several phases. In around three months you will start to see new hairs. Then in six months, you will see a noticeable improvement and then at 12 to 14 months, there will be full growth.

Will I have a visible linear scar?

No. Since the grafts are removed as individual micro grafts instead of large strips that require stitches, there is minimal scarring and it is not visible (in contrast to traditional hair transplant procedures). You can wear whatever hairstyle you prefer!

Is SmartGraft® well-suited for both women and men?

Yes. Since SmartGraft® is a type of minimally invasive procedure, the option is viable for both women and men who want to restore their own natural hair.

Am I a good candidate to use the SmartGraft® procedure?

Most hair loss patients are good candidates to use the SmartGraft® procedure, especially those who like wearing very short haircuts, have a previous strip procedure that needs scar camouflage, or want to have the least activity restriction following their procedure. To learn more, consult with a physician about using SmartGraft® technology.
