Why Robotic Hair Restoration?

The demand for hair transplant surgery remains dominated by men, who account for 87% of the patient base. Further demand for hair transplants is also on the rise. It’s not surprising, since hair loss might be the number one body image issue among men.

The boost in popularity of and demand for hair transplants may be due to new technology. Robotic hair restoration adds efficiency and precision to the process, and it’s fast becoming the standard of care for hair transplantation.

The team at Advanced Robotic Hair Restoration Centers certainly believes this technique is the wave of the future. Predictable and accurate results from the ARTAS iX™ robot-assisted hair restoration system may be the next level procedure you’ve been waiting for.

Hair transplant methods

There are two approaches to hair transplantation surgery. Follicular unit transplantation (FUT) moves hair in groups of 1-4 hairs that cluster naturally, called follicular units. This procedure harvests a strip of flesh from the donor area of the scalp, from which the surgeon separates individual follicular units. The harvest strip leaves an unavoidable scar, though it’s typically hidden by hair overgrowth.

Follicular unit excision (FUE) harvests follicular units directly from the scalp, leaving a one-millimeter excision wound that typically heals over without excessive scarring. Logistics are the primary drawback of the FUE method, since the surgeon must identify and harvest follicular units one at a time. This could mean long surgeries over one or more days.

With both FUT and FUE methods, the harvested follicular units transplant to recipient sites in areas of thinning hair. Both methods require similar time for the implantation of follicular units.

Automated FUE

Reduced visible scarring drives the growing popularity of the FUE method. Identifying and harvesting remain the challenge. The advantage that FUT offers is the ease of recovery of follicular units from a scalp strip, rather than directly from the patient.

Both conventional FUE and FUT methods carry a secondary factor that influences the success of your hair transplant: surgeon fatigue. Every follicular unit requires precise handling throughout the transplant process. Yet, with hundreds or thousands of follicular units moving, human error becomes a problem. You may know how your work at the end of the day suffers from prolonged concentration.

The same holds true for a hair transplant surgeon. The ARTAS iX robot-assisted hair restoration system provides a computer-controlled assistant for your Advanced Robotic Hair Restoration Centers surgeon, an assistant that takes over the tasks of identifying suitable follicular units. The ARTAS iX then harvests and relocates these units with precision and accuracy.

There’s no linear scarring. The first unit transplant and the last receive the same level of precision, free from the effects of diminished human capacity. Your surgeon oversees the process but no longer worries about the effects of fatigue and repetitive movements.
