“Hair Restoration is an artform. With Smart FUE, every step is crucial to the masterful completion of the piece. By doing each step from the punches, to the extraction to the site creation, the surgeon becomes the painter, and the patient becomes the painting. That is why I believe it is critical that the surgeon be the one to master each step. I am proud to say that with each procedure I am the one ensuring my patients all appear as a walking work of art!”

- Dr. John Kahen


Follicular Unit Extraction

Smart FUE is minimally invasive restoration procedure that involves harvesting individual hair grafts, from the patient’s scalp, and transplanting them into the desired areas. This is an amazing option for you if you are seeking a significant increase in your hair density. The process includes:

The Smart FUE treatment plan is strategically mapped out, and the markings are created to guide you to your goals. Typically, the donor area is shaved into a high fade or military style haircut. The harvest site is then numbed with a local anesthesia. 

Extracting the follicles is a critical part of the FUE process, requiring a great deal of skill and precision. Dr. Kahen is one of the few doctors that actually does this step himself.
During the extraction process, Dr. Kahen will extract individual grafts with a miniscule excision 1mm or less in size, which produce minimal scarring and allow flexibility in post-treatment hairstyles. This conscientious process is repeated until the optimal amount of grafts have been harvested. This process typically takes 2-4 hours.

After the follicles are inspected, counted, and passed through rigorous quality control, the recipient area is prepped with platelet-rich plasma. The patients blood will be ran through our Tru DoseA® machine, so we can effectively determine the amount of PRP needed to ensure maximum results. This process creates the perfect environment for the implanted and native hair follicles. This revolutionary technique sets us apart from any other hair transplant clinic and delivers the maximum result.

The grafts are then examined under a microscope by our highly experienced techs and counted. Anesthesia is again applied to the donor area and the recipient area. Once the grafts are prepped Dr. Kahen will use his artistry to create the recipient sites for the grafts.
Dr. Kahen uses his keen attention to detail and his artistic mind to control the orientation, depth, and distribution of the grafts. This crucial process determines how the hair will grow in to deliver the most natural results. After the recipient sites are created, Dr. Kahen's expert team will carefully place the grafts into the sites.


No linear scarring, No stitches, Quick recovery, and Minimally invasive! Patients with low - cropped hair benefit most from this procedure.

You can wear a hat the day after the Smart FUE procedure. Wash the scalp 2-3 days after the procedure. No heavy lifting for a week. Ten days after the Smart FUE procedure we’ll inspect the incision and grafting area to make sure the healing process is advancing properly. We follow up every 3-6 months after the Smart FUE procedure. If you are traveling, the follow ups are performed over HIPPA regulator video chat.
