Hair Transplant

Transplant Precision Possible with Robotics

Hair transplants, though around for many years, are just really starting to increase in popularity thanks mainly to improved procedures and technologies and the ability to get more natural looking results.

Not only have doctors improved their craft as far as how they manually extract hair follicles and transplant them to problem areas - but now technologies being introduced like robotics are making the hair transplant procedure are much more precise one.

Since hair transplant procedures vary dependent on the patient and their level of hair loss, it can be difficult to estimate the amount of time and number of follicles a surgeon would have to extract and then transplant. Typically doing repetition motions of punching out a hair follicle - even up to thousands of times- is sure to cause some follicles to go missed. But with a robot in place, the accuracy and precision is one to none.

A recent
ABC Action News report took a closer look at how one doctor is using robotics to get those more accurate hair transplants done.

Through the use of the ARTAS robotic hair transplant machine, removing hair grafts from the scalp is faster and more methodical.

But fear not, robots aren't going to take over the world just yet. While these devices are going leaps and bounds in improving the efficiency of surgical procedures, professionals are still needed to man the operation of these machines and even do some of the work with hair transplant procedures - including the actual function of implanting the hair follicles in the new location - since robots cannot be used to insert the follicles around the crown.
