ARTAS ROBOTIC HAIR TRANSPLANT

Florida’s Most Experienced ARTAS Hair Transplant Surgeon

What is the ARTAS Hair Transplant?

The ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant is a minimally invasive hair transplant procedure that utilizes advanced digital imaging and precision robotics to naturally restore hair. ARTAS incorporates the follicular unit extraction (FUE) method to transplant healthy hair to the area affected by hair loss.

What is the FUE Hair Transplant?

Follicular unit extraction (FUE) is one of the two most common techniques used in hair transplantations. This method utilizes naturally occurring follicular units to promote new hair growth. A follicular unit simply refers to 1 to 4 hair follicles that all grow together out of a single pore.

ARTAS Hair Transplant Cost

The average cost of the ARTAS Hair Transplant at our center is $7,900. ARTAS pricing in the United States can range anywhere from $7,000 to $18,000, with most centers charging per graft rather than per session. This can be as high as $15 a graft.

Unlike most hair transplant centers, Tampa Bay Hair Restoration does not calculate the cost of ARTAS on a per graft basis. Instead, we charge a fixed price per session. Pricing will include harvesting as many hair grafts necessary to achieve the thickest and fullest results. This way, our patients are receiving the most out of each session.

ARTAS Hair Transplant Results

The ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant provides natural and permanent results that last. New hair growth can be seen as soon as 3 months after the procedure, and will continue to show substantial growth over the course of the year. The most noticeable results are seen at about 6 months.

ARTAS vs. Traditional Hair Transplantations

The ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant System was created by Restoration Robotics and incorporates the follicular unit extraction (FUE) hair transplant method. The traditional method of the FUE hair transplant procedure was a labor-intensive process that required surgeons to manually dissect hundreds and thousands of hair follicles from the patient’s donor area. The ARTAS hair transplant technology was developed by leading researchers and engineers to improve hair growth results and perfect the FUE hair transplant technique.

The physician-assisted robotic technology allows surgeons to precisely harvest each hair graft at the exact same consistency and accuracy throughout the entire procedure, eliminating any potential for human error or fatigue. ARTAS Hair Transplant is able to:

  • Use digital imaging and precision robotics to accurately identify and harvest the best follicular hair units for harvesting
  • Calculate the exact depths and angles of the follicular units
  • Track each individual hair graft throughout the entire procedure
  • Create natural site distribution for fuller and thicker results

What is Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)?

ARTAS Hair Transplant is a minimally invasive hair restoration procedure that utilizes advanced digital imaging and precision robotics to naturally restore hair. ARTAS incorporates the follicular unit extraction (FUE) method to transplant healthy hair to the area affected by hair loss.

Follicular unit extraction (FUE) is one of the two most common methods used in hair transplantations. The FUE hair transplant method utilizes naturally occurring follicular units to promote new hair growth. A follicular unit simply refers to what comes out of a pore. While many think that a single hair grows out of each pore, hair growth actually occurs in follicular groups. Each follicular unit consists of 1 to 4 hair follicles that all come out of the same individual pore.

ARTAS Robotic FUE Hair Transplant

The ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant device is used to extract healthy follicular units from the donor area (area unaffected by hair loss) and transplant them back into the recipient site (area affected by hair loss). Once hair has been successfully transplanted, hair will continue to grow identically to the hair found within the donor area. Hair will continue to grow steadily over time – providing natural and permanent hair growth results.

The ARTAS Hair Transplant procedure can take anywhere from 4 to 8 hours depending on the patient’s hair restoration needs, goals and desires. The patient will be seated comfortably throughout the entirety of the procedure, and may take breaks at any time. The ARTAS procedure is virtually painless and minimally invasive; however, local anesthesia will be applied to the donor and recipient areas in order to reduce any trace of discomfort for the patient. Most patients report little to no pain during and after the procedure.

The Hair Transplant Donor Area

The donor area is the section where hair grafts will be taken from for harvesting. This area is usually found on the back and sides of the scalp where hair growth is permanent and not affected by the chemical DHT, one of the main influencers of hair loss in men and women. When hair grafts are dissected from the donor area and transplanted into the recipient site, they continue to grow just as they would before the transplant.

Before ARTAS graft harvesting can begin, the donor area will need to be trimmed to the appropriate length. The hair in this area is recommended to be one-millimeter in length or shorter. This will provide the computer imaging system with the most accurate results for identifying, tracking and harvesting each hair graft. With the ARTAS hair transplants innovative micron-level imaging, the donor area will look nearly untouched and graft harvesting will be undetectable to others after the procedure.

ARTAS Hair Harvesting

Hair harvesting refers to the process of removing healthy hair follicles from the area that isn’t affected by hair loss. The ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant System uses advanced digital imaging to identify and analyze the most optimal hair grafts for harvesting. The technology incorporates artificial intelligence algorithms to strategically determine which healthy grafts will be selected in order to maintain the most natural-look in the donor area, while ensuring unparalleled hair regrowth results within the desired areas.

The ARTAS hair transplant system will precisely select the hair follicles using the image guidance and track each individual hair graft dissection from start to finish. With its micron-level accuracy, hair grafts are delivered with the exact same accuracy and consistency throughout the entirety of the procedure. This is all under the control and supervision of Dr. Markou.

Creating the Ideal Hairline

for New Hair Growth

It’s imperative to ensure a natural and undetectable look for hair transplantation procedures. This is why recipient site making is one of the most important steps of the ARTAS Hair Transplant procedure. Recipient site making refers to the process of designing the ideal hairline and aesthetic pattern for new hair growth. This step of the procedure requires Dr. Markou’s years of experience and artistry.

Once hair grafts are dissected from the donor area, they will then be transplanted into the recipient site. The recipient site is the area on your scalp where hair is thinning or pattern baldness is occurring. In order to determine the precise locations of graft reinsertion, a recipient site making treatment design will need to be created.

The ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant System is capable of creating recipient sites behind the hairline; however, does not create recipient sites in the hairline or the crown. This part requires a skilled and experienced hair transplant surgeon. Dr Markou and other experienced physicians continue to create their own recipient sites to ensure proper fit of the graft and proper angle.

ARTAS Hairline Design

Dr. Markou has over 25 years of experience in designing and developing the ideal recipient site making treatment. He follows the individual scalp patterns for each patient to design a unique treatment that will provide the most natural hair restoration results.

Each treatment corresponds with the patient’s desired look for hair regrowth and is based off different depths, directions and angles. Dr. Markou will determine the required angles, density, distribution, and direction of the hair follicles to ensure a natural look for hair growth while avoiding damage to pre-existing healthy hair in the recipient site.

Does ARTAS Leave a Scar?

The ARTAS Hair Transplant is minimally invasive due to the micron-level accuracy provided by advanced digital imaging. Unlike older hair transplant methods, no stitches or suturing is required. The system incorporates a two-step dissection process to dissect each individual hair graft, allowing minimal to no visible scarring within the donor area.

Any small wounds left behind will be very tiny “punch marks” that will completely close over the next few days post-surgery. Due to the minimally invasive nature of the ARTAS hair transplant procedure, patients are able to return back to their normal schedule within the next day or two. The donor area will appear like a short haircut within a week or so.

ARTAS Hair Restoration Results

ARTAS Hair Transplant provides natural-looking results that last. Since the transplanted hair originated in the donor area, these follicles are not affected by the same conditions that cause hair loss within the recipient site – allowing for permanent hair regrowth.

New hair growth can be seen as soon as 3 months after the ARTAS hair transplant procedure has been administered, and will continue to grow substantially for a years length. On average, patients see the most noticeable hair growth results anywhere from 6 to 9 months after the ARTAS Robotic Hair Restoration.

Frequently Asked Questions About ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant

What is a Robotic Hair Transplant?

A robotic hair transplant is a treatment for hair loss where hair is removed and transplanted using robotic control. Robotic hair transplant technology is only used for the follicular unit extraction (FUE).

The physician-assisted robotic technology allows surgeons to precisely harvest each hair graft at the exact same consistency and accuracy throughout the entire procedure, eliminating any potential for human error or fatigue. The ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant System was developed to perfect the FUE procedure and maximize hair growth.

How much does ARTAS hair restoration cost?

ARTAS hair restoration can cost anywhere from $7,000 to $18,000, with most centers charging per hair graft rather than per session. Patients can be charged as high as $15 per graft.

Unlike most centers around the United States, we charge per session rather than per graft. By doing pricing this way, we’re able to focus on creating the ideal hairline for new hair growth and will harvest as many hair grafts as necessary to achieve the thickest results possible in one session. On average, the ARTAS hair transplant procedure costs about $7,900 at our center.

Am I a good candidate for ARTAS hair transplant?

The ARTAS hair transplant is a suitable option for both men and women aiming to restore their hair. The robotic FUE hair transplant is ideal for patients who prefer to wear their hair in shorter hairstyles or patients who require the least amount of activity restriction following the procedure.

The FUE method is commonly used as a “scar camouflage” for patients who have a scar from previous hair transplant methods, or patients who are prone to scarring and have a tight scalp. The procedure may not be suitable for those in advanced stages of hair loss, and the FUT hair transplant may be a better option.

Are there any side effects from ARTAS robotic hair transplant?

The ARTAS robotic hair transplant is a minimally invasive procedure that does not require any stitches or suturing. Patients may experience slight swelling and redness after the procedure, but will completely heal over the next day or two.

How long do the ARTAS hair transplant results last?

The hair growth results from the ARTAS hair transplant are permanent. Hairs that are transplanted from the donor area (back of head) are not affected by the same hair loss conditions as those found in the recipient site (front and top of head). Once hair has been transplanted to the recipient area, hair growth will continue identically to those found in the donor area.

What is the recovery time after ARTAS hair transplant?

Recovery time for the ARTAS Hair Transplant procedure is less than most cosmetic procedures. Since no stitches or suturing is required, patients heal completely over the next 1 to 2 days post-procedure. Due to the minimally invasive nature of the procedure, patients are able to return back to their normal schedule almost immediately.

What’s the Difference Between ARTAS & NeoGraft?

Both ARTAS and NeoGraft incorporate the follicular unit extraction (FUE) hair transplant method. NeoGraft is a handheld device that’s manually guided by the hair transplant surgeon. ARTAS is a robotic system that’s image guided with robotic alignment for unmatched precision and control not offered by manual techniques.

Will people know that I've had a hair transplant after ARTAS?

The ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant does not cause any scarring, so hair can be worn fashionably short or in longer styles after the procedure with no signs of a hair transplant having occurred. People will notice that you have more hair on the top of your head after about 6 months, but the results will be natural and undetectable.
