Hair transplantation is a popular option for men and women who suffer from hair loss. Many people still choose follicular unit transplantation (FUT), which involves removing a strip of skin that contains hair follicles, from the back of the head and then harvesting and implanting it into balding areas. However, FUT has its downsides. Today we have a more advanced option: robotic hair transplantation (FUE). The robotic hair transplant is no doubt the better choice if you’re considering getting a hair transplant. Here are six reasons why you should consider this procedure over traditional FUT:

FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) or robotic hair transplants are generally considered to be a painless procedure compared to FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) also known as the strip method. This is because FUE hair transplants are minimally invasive and do not involve the removal of a strip of tissue from the scalp, as is the case with FUT hair transplants. Additionally, FUE hair transplants typically involve smaller incisions and therefore result in less scarring and a faster recovery time. However, pain tolerance can vary from person to person, and some individuals may still experience discomfort during an FUE hair transplant procedure.
Recovery time after a hair transplant procedure is usually shorter with a robotic hair transplant compared to FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) for several reasons:
Minimal Invasiveness : Robotic hair transplant uses a minimally invasive approach, which results in less damage to the surrounding tissue and faster healing.
Precision : The robot-assisted procedure allows for highly precise and accurate incisions, reducing the risk of complications and hastening the recovery process.
Reduced Scarring : The smaller incisions used in a robotic hair transplant result in less scarring compared to the larger incision used in FUT, which means less tissue damage and a quicker recovery.
Faster Procedure : The robotic system can perform the extraction and implantation of hair follicles faster than manual methods, leading to a quicker overall procedure and recovery time.
It’s important to note that the actual recovery time can vary from person to person based on factors such as the extent of the procedure, the individual’s overall health, and the surgeon’s postoperative care instructions.
Robotic hair transplants can be more cost-effective compared to FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) for two reasons:
Lower Rate of Complications : The precision of the robotic system reduces the risk of complications, such as scarring, infection, or poor growth, which can increase the cost of treatment and result in the need for additional procedures.
Decreased Need for Revision Surgeries : The improved accuracy and precision of the robotic system result in a higher success rate, reducing the need for revision surgeries, which can be costly.
However, it’s important to note that the cost of a hair transplant can vary greatly depending on various factors such as the extent of the procedure, the experience of the surgeon, the location of the clinic, etc. It’s always best to consult with a hair transplant specialist to determine the cost of your specific case.
ARTAS iX robotic hair restoration system uses 3D hairline planning to design a natural-looking hairline. The technology involves the use of advanced 3D imaging software that allows the surgeon to visualize the patient’s scalp, hair characteristics, and facial features, and design a hairline that fits their unique needs and preferences. The design can be adjusted and refined until the patient is satisfied with the final result.
More Natural Results
Robotic hair transplant offers more natural results compared to FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) because it allows for highly precise harvesting and placement of the hair follicles, resulting in a more natural hairline and distribution of hair. The minimally invasive nature of the robotic procedure reduces the amount of tissue damage, scarring, and trauma, which can also lead to a more natural appearance. Most importantly, during the planning phase of the procedure, the surgeon will work with the patient to design a natural-looking hairline that fits their face shape, hair characteristics, and personal preferences. Finally, the robotic system can precisely extract and implant hair follicles, improving their survival rate and contributing to a more natural result.
It’s important to note that individual results may vary and that factors such as the extent of the procedure, the surgeon’s experience, and the patient’s aftercare can also impact the final outcome. Additionally, while robotic hair transplants can offer more natural results, the final outcome will depend on several factors, including the individual’s hair characteristics, hair loss pattern, and overall health.
It’s clear that robotic hair transplantation is a better option for your hair restoration needs. It offers a faster recovery time, less pain during surgery, and more natural results than FUT. Plus, it has no donor site scarring! If you’re ready to get started with your new look, we encourage you to contact us today.
