Finding the Right Hair Dr!



Robotic devices are more commonly used for many different types of surgical procedures. One being Robotic Fue, which just happens to be one of Dr. Mark. A. Bishara’s top procedures at the Paragon Plastic Surgery and Med Spa. Dr. Mark. A. Bishara has done many robotic FUE’s. From Hair transplantations to beards and even eyebrows. As tedious as it sounds Dr. Mark A. Bishara and his staff at the Paragon Plastic Surgery and Med Spa are very professional and experienced.
 

The Invention

Restoration robotics is a medical device company who created  a robot called the ARTAS to help assist in hair transplantation. The Artas Robot consists of a chair in which the patient would sit through out the whole hair transplantation. Aside from the chair is the actual Artas Robot which Dr. Mark A. Bishara controls using a computer. The   Artas Robotic device has been FDA cleared.

What it does

The Artas Robot has a robotic arm which is being controlled to dissect hair follicles from the back and sides of the scalp. In order for the robotic arm to detect the patients hair, Dr. Mark A. Bishara staff shaves the back of the patients head. Unlike the traditional strip removal of the patients donor area the Artas Robot is designed to perform a follicular unit extraction using a special 0.7 to 1mm diameter tool. That only means one thing, no linear scar. The cuts using the Artas Robot will leave a scar that is barely visible to the naked eye.

ARTAS Robotic System
 

ARTAS Who?

The ARTAS Robotic System was created by Restoration Robotics in 2002 for the treatment of hair loss. Great news, the ARTAS Robotic System is FDA cleared! It only gets better, Dr. Mark A. Bishara at The Paragon Plastic Surgery and Med Spa has performed hundreds of hair restoration surgeries using the ARTAS Robotic System. The ARTAS Robotic System utilizes follicular unit extraction (FUE). Not only dissection, The ARTAS has the ability to make recipient sites. The ARTAS Robotic System has the ability of identifying and selecting your best hair for harvesting. With digital mapping it has the ability to provide a consistent graft dissection. Scarring is very minimal, unnoticeable at that. The recovery period with ARTAS Robotic System is fast making it easier for you to get back to your normal activities quicker.

ARTAS Animation

Behind the scenes of The ARTAS Robotic System

The day of surgery here at The Paragon Plastic Surgery and Med Spa we bring the patient in and start off with consents and paperwork.  The day prior to surgery Dr. Mark A. Bishara will have some medications called and the patient will bring them along the morning of surgery. Dr. Mark A. Bishara’s staff will then begin to prep the patient beginning with trimming the patient hair so that it is easier for the ARTAS Robotic System to identify and extract. The patient’s donor  area is numbed using local anesthesia. The patient will then be seated in prone positon as we prepare the ARTAS Robotic System. A tensioner is placed on the patient scalp to help with dissection and depth. Dr. Mark A. Bishara then begins to maneuver the ARTAS Robotic System. The ARTAS Robotic System will start capturing images of the patient’s donor area in order to identify the different angles and density of the patient’s hair. The dissection begins, as the ARTAS Robotic System is dissection Dr. Mark A. Bishara’s tech will go behind and manually extract the the follicular units as the ARTAS Robotic System disects. Once all follicular units are dissected and extracted, Dr. Mark A. Bishara’s techs will begin to manually transplant the new hair in to the patient’s recipient area. Before you know it, you’ll be walking out with a new hair set!

Deciding to have a hair transplant procedure is an important, life-changing decision. Understanding the details of the ARTAS® Robotic Procedure will help you determine if it is right for you. You will need to know what to expect before, during and after the procedure, as well as when you can expect to see results.
The ARTAS Robotic Procedure was designed with you in mind. Developed with leading hair transplant physicians and researchers, this state-of-the-art technology was created to eliminate the guesswork and fatigue associated with manual handheld methods, along with the scarring, complications and downtime of existing invasive surgical techniques. Unlike older transplant methods, no stitches are required, rendering your procedure nearly undetectable. You can now expect natural-looking results without the side effects and recovery times resulting from older techniques. Overcome the negative stigma associated with traditional hair transplants and reap the benefits of this revolutionary, physician-controlled technology.
During the initial stage, hair is selectively harvested with robotic precision providing consistent graft dissection. Advanced robotics provide speed and harvesting accuracy unavailable with manual handheld techniques.
The ARTAS System uses Recipient Site Making to implement your treatment design which is carefully created with the ARTAS Hair Studio Technology. Using the process of robotic Recipient Site Making, the ARTAS System protects your existing, healthy hair. Survival and growth rates of the transplanted hair depends entirely on the meticulous creation of these robotic recipient sites.

How Will You Look?

The ARTAS Hair Studio® Technology is a 3D photograph based simulation of your potential procedure results. During your consultation, your clinician will work to design your personalized cosmetic hair pattern and illustrate different options, showing you various graft counts and hair distribution, with your direct input. The same ARTAS Hair Studio Technology is used to create your robotic Recipient Site Making treatment design which is then transferred to the ARTAS Robotic System for implementation.

Day of the Procedure

Most ARTAS Robotic Procedures start in the morning and end in the afternoon. Wear comfortable clothes and bring a loose-fitting hat to wear home after your procedure.

During the Procedure

During the ARTAS Robotic Procedure, you will be seated and the physician and clinical team will do everything they can to ensure your comfort. A local anesthetic will be used while you remain awake and alert during the procedure. Most patients describe their experience as virtually pain-free.
The physician-assisted ARTAS® Robotic System will use advanced algorithms to select the best hairs for harvesting, while preserving the natural look of your donor area. Your aesthetic design from ARTAS Hair Studio is delivered to the robot for Recipient Site Making. Your hair is then transplanted into thinning areas.
There will be time for breaks during the procedure, so you should expect to have a pleasant experience throughout the process.

After the Procedure

You will be able to return home immediately after the procedure. Your clinician will instruct you on how to care for your newly transplanted hair. Most people will sleep comfortably without pain immediately post-procedure and will return to their regular activities in a few days.

Your New Hair Growth

Follow your clinician’s instructions on how to shampoo and care for your hair. Your newly transplanted hair, like the rest of your hair, grows steadily over time. After a few months, you will begin to see new hair growth. Around six months, you will start to notice significant growth. Your hair will continue to grow in the treated areas over time. You will be able to take care of your newly transplanted, permanent hair as you normally would.

How does the ARTAS Robotic Procedure work?

The ARTAS Robotic Procedure is a minimally invasive hair restoration solution that leverages digital imaging and precision robotics to harvest healthy grafts for transplantation. Unlike the earlier methods of hair restoration, there is no need for the surgical removal of a band of tissue from the back and sides of the head, no linear scar left after surgery and no need for stitches or staples to close the wound. The benefit is a quick recovery time and the ability to return to normal activities and work sooner.

Should I cut my hair before treatment?

Yes. Trimming your hair in the donor area allows the ARTAS Robotic System to accurately visualize, track and harvest each grouping of hairs. You will receive instructions on having your hair cut shorter in preparation for your ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant.

How will my hair look after the ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant?

The ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant provides extremely natural looking results. After the procedure, you are able to wear your hair any length or style with confidence.

How is the ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant different than “Hair Plugs”?

Old fashioned “hair plugs” included the harvesting of large patches of hair that resulted in an awkward and unnatural appearance once implanted. In the ARTAS Robotic Procedure, hairs are harvested in their natural groupings and then transplanted individually by your physician. Individual transplantation provides you with the look you desire, including a great looking hairline and a fuller head of hair.

Are ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant results permanent?

Yes. The ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant uses your own permanent growing hair, typically from the back of your head, and your physician then implants this hair to the thinning areas of your scalp. As this hair is not susceptible to the conditions that cause male pattern baldness, transplanted hair will last a lifetime.

How long does it take to recover and heal?

Recovery time with the ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant is less than with most surgical cosmetic procedures. As there is no surgical incision or stitches required with the ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant, healing time is short, and you can usually go back to your daily activities after a day or two. Some doctors schedule a follow up visit the morning after the procedure to examine your scalp and to teach you how to take care of your newly implanted hair.

When will my new hair start to grow?

Transplanted hair grows naturally in phases. New hairs are seen about three months after the procedure, and will continue to increase over the course of a full year. At approximately six months, you will enjoy a noticeable improvement and after a full year, you will see final results.

Will people know I have had a hair transplant procedure?

With the ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant, any scarring is minimal and is nearly undetectable. Your new hair grows in gradually, reducing the chance that people will notice the procedure. Your friends and family will comment that you look better, but the results from your hair transplant are subtle and natural.

Does the ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant procedure hurt?

The ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant, an outpatient procedure performed in the doctor’s office, requires only a local anesthetic. The patient feels virtually no pain. Some patients can experience minor discomfort and swelling post-procedure, which subsides in one to three days.

Will there be visible scarring in the donor area?

Because the ARTAS Robotic System selectively harvests individual hair groupings rather than removing a large area of scalp requiring sutures, there is minimal scarring in the donor area. Hair can be worn fashionably short, or in longer styles, whatever you prefer. You’re not limited by having to cover scarring from strip surgery.

What is the price of the ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant?

Treatment costs will be determined during your consultation with your doctor and depend on the amount of new hair that you desire. Discuss the procedure pricing with your doctor, as some doctors may offer payment options.

How long does the ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant procedure take?

The ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant usually takes from four to eight hours as determined by your doctor to achieve your hair restoration goals. You are comfortably seated during the process, and the doctor and staff are there with you to maximize your comfort throughout the procedure.
