Every day as you get up and look at yourself in the mirror, you realize your hair isn’t as thick as it once was. You might notice thinning in some areas. You might even have visible bald spots.
But there’s no need to despair. Many factors can affect the thinning of your hair or the appearance of bald spots. Hair loss can occur as you age, or maybe the result of genetics, stress, certain medical conditions, or as a side effect of many different medications. Whatever the reason for your hair loss, there are many ways to combat it.
If you’ve tried hair-restoration solutions and went from one hair clinic to another and still can’t find a solution, then robotic-assisted hair transplants might work for you. These procedures are ideal for those with permanent hair loss and male pattern baldness. Additionally, if you’re suffering from balding due to injury or scarring, this type of hair transplant may be for you.
Robotic-assisted hair transplant surgery is a technological advancement of the follicular unit extraction (FUE) procedure. The operation works like this: a robotic “arm” assists your hair restoration surgeon through the difficult parts of the hair transplant procedure. It can precisely and efficiently assist with harvesting the best-suited hair follicles from the donor areas of the scalp, and with transplanting them into the balding areas.
This type of robotic assistance offers many advantages, some that are similar to the surgeon-only version of FUE but additional benefits as well. These advantages include:
- No linear scarring
- No post-operative downtime
- Makes precise, repetitive movements easy
- Less chance of human error
- Less variability for better-looking results
How Do Robotic-Assisted Hair Transplants Work?
The patient is given local anesthesia on the affected area where the surgery and transplantation are going to happen. The patient is seated and a device to add tension to the skin is placed on the scalp to aid hair follicle harvesting.
The robotic arm scans the area for hair follicles to be extracted, taking the strands out carefully. After harvesting a sufficient number of grafts, the transplantation then commences.
Due to the automated feature of this procedure, locating the best hair follicles to harvest is now be more accurately determined, speeding up the hair transplant process. If you’re looking for an easier effective solution to your hair loss problems, a robotic-assisted hair transplant may be for you.
