A SmartGraft consent form is a document that explains the risks, benefits, and alternatives of the SmartGraft hair restoration procedure, a minimally invasive hair transplantation technique. The form is used to obtain the patient's informed consent before the surgery is performed.
The SmartGraft procedure involves using a specialised device to extract individual hair follicles from the back of the patient's scalp, which are then implanted into the areas of the scalp where hair loss has occurred. This technique results in less scarring and downtime compared to traditional hair transplant procedures.
The SmartGraft consent form will typically outline the risks and potential complications associated with the procedure, such as bleeding, infection, scarring, and changes in sensation or function. The form will also explain the benefits of the surgery, such as improved hair density and appearance.
