First Robotic Hair Transplant in the UK


Patrick Shaw, 38 became the first man to undergo robotic hair transplant procedure in the UK, to get a full crop of hair and cover up the bald areas of his scalp.

The
ARTAS robotic procedure was selected by him after much research and deliberation. Although he did not use any gel products or styling techniques he started going bald some years back and was keen on retrieving his natural looks and nothing short of it.

He traveled from Spain to London to undergo the procedure. According to him the entire process was very smooth and pain free as the process was minimally invasive and left no scar.

This is an outpatient procedure and within a week both the donor and receptor areas on the scalp look the same and even throughout. No one will ever guess that a person had a hair transplant done. Soon the patient can style his hair.

The ARTAS Robotic Procedure leveraged advanced digital tech precision robots to transplant hair from the back of head which is genetically immune to balding to the bald area.

The
ARTAS Robotic System is a safe, FDA approved medical device which uses digital imagery to map hair groupings called follicular units. The area from where hair is to be removed is trimmed for being digitized by the ARTAS Robotic System.

A local anesthetic is applied by the doctor making the procedure pain free. A skin tensioner is used on the scalp for accurate location of hair follicles in order to help harvesting of hair in its natural groups.

The precision robotics removes follicular units randomly within the clump of hair to retain the original look in the donor area. It also uses image guidance, digital visualization, dynamic adjustment to patient movement and selective harvest pattern while removing hair. The robotic procedure is repeated until the required amount of hair is removed.

The grafts are transplanted into the bald areas of the scalp which will soon grow as permanent hair. All patients can return back to normal activities within two days. In a week’s time the head is covered evenly as both donor and recipient areas have same look. By six months patients will be happy they went for the procedure. In nine months’ time they will have natural-looking hair like before.

Many men like Patrick Shaw have undergone successful procedures by opting for robotic
FUE methods. Patrick says that the entire procedure was so smooth and easy to endure and much better than going to the dentist.
