Alan Bauman, MD, Adds SmartGraft® To Treatment Portfolio, Producing Natural-Looking Hair Transplant Results From His Florida Practice
Dr. Bauman is one of only 200 physicians globally to achieve certification from the American and International Board of Hair Restoration Surgery (ABHRS), be an accepted member of the International Alliance of Hair Restoration Surgeons (IAHRS) and also recommended by the American Hair Loss Association.
In addition, he has attained the coveted Fellow status within the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (FISHRS).
Hair is Dr. Bauman’s passion; he is an Advisory Board Member for the World Trichology Society and is also the author of numerous articles and textbook chapters on the science of hair care and hair transplantation, including eyelash transplant surgery.
He is a successful early-adopter and pioneer of some of the most advanced technologies in the effective treatment of hair loss including no-linear-scar FUE or Follicular Unit Extraction, which is why SmartGraft appealed to Dr. Bauman.
“As an FUE hair transplant pioneer who has used numerous manual, mechanical and robotic devices over more than 15 years and after extensive internal device testing and research, I can say with great confidence that SmartGraft is a dramatic improvement over previous manual mechanical FUE tools currently on the market,” states Dr. Bauman. “Innovations like the unique closed, climate-controlled internal graft storage and hydration system, programmable microprocessor control, and on-board LED lighting system on the handpiece are improving accuracy, efficiency and, most importantly, our patients’ results.”
He details that minimally invasive FUE harvesting of individual follicular units for transplantation with SmartGraft allows patients a faster, more comfortable, less restricted recovery phase compared to old-style linear “strip” harvesting.
Since no wide-shave of the donor area is required, handheld FUE devices such as SmartGraft empower Dr. Bauman and his team to execute traditional transplants for male pattern hair loss, as well as specialty transplants like female hairline lowering, female pattern hair loss, female temple restoration, eyebrow transplantation, beard and body hair harvesting, as well as smaller “no shave” FUE procedures from the scalp for male and female hair loss patients. “With SmartGraft, all patients maintain the benefits of leaving behind absolutely NO telltale linear scar,” adds Dr. Bauman.
SmartGraft makes hair replacement a more accessible, effective and realistic option than ever before for both men and women with hair loss, delivering natural-looking outcomes with little downtime. When expertly performed, the treatment is quick, comfortable and permanent.

About FUE or Follicular Unit Extraction
FUE or Follicular Unit Extraction is the least invasive hair transplant graft harvesting technique that leaves absolutely NO telltale linear scar in the donor area and with a more comfortable and less restricted recovery than traditional “Strip Harvest” techniques. Grafts as small as a single hair can be harvested from the Donor Area and when implanted with artistry and precision by an expert surgeon, create an undetectably natural restoration of living and growing hair.
Vision Medical, Inc. is a leading USA manufacturer that develops and markets medical and aesthetic technology products for the medical and aesthetic markets for worldwide distribution.
Vision Medical’s first commercial product, the SmartGraft® Hair Restoration System, uses minimally-invasive vacuum assisted FUE technology for men and women. SmartGraft keeps the newly harvested grafts chilled, hydrated & robust without any exposure to outside air for optimal graft preservation.
