The robot is built to make recipient sites as well, once the sites are made and the follicular units are checked the planting begins. The new hair is then planted on to the patients recipient area. Local anesthetic is used to help with any pain and discomfort along with Valium to help the patient relax. The ARTAS Robot cuts down on time from a FUT procedure.

How it is done

Hair Loss

With there being many types a hair loss people frequently ask themselves what is best for them to treat their hair loss. When coming in to see Dr. Mark A. Bishara the type of hair loss the patient is experiencing plays a big part in deciding between PRP injections or Hair Transplantation. Male or female pattern baldness is typically on top of the head. The hair on the back and sides its what gets transplanted on the top of the scalp being that it wont be affected by the hormones.
Although PRP can be used during hair transplantation there are patients that rather not go through Hair Transplantation surgery. PRP treatments as same as hair transplantation can be used to treat male and female pattern baldness.

The Difference….

The process of PRP treatments are considerably different from a hair transplantation surgery. At the Paragon Plastic Surgery and Med Spa the first step in PRP treatments starts with drawing the patients blood. The Blood Sample is placed in a centrifuge so that the plasma separates from other cells. The Plasma then gets drawn into a syringe and injected to the areas in the scalp that Dr. Mark A Bishara has recommended to the patient.

Hair Transplantation it takes more involvement from Dr. Mark A. Bishara and his surgical techs. The hairs that will be transplanted are taken from the back and sides of the head using the ARTAS Robotic system which is the preferred method by Dr. Mark A. Bishara. The follicular units removed are check for quality as Dr. Mark A. Bishara makes the new home for the new hair. The Paragon Plastic Surgery and Med Spa techs then take the follicular units are then carefully transplanted on to the sites made, making sure they are positioned in the same direction Dr. Mark A. Bishara has made the sites.
 

The Results

It normally takes the same time to see results for both PRP treatments and Hair Transplantation. As far as Hair transplantation the transplanted hair will shed days after surgery. Patients usually see results of new hair growing within 6 to 7 months after their hair transplantation surgery. As for PRP treatments new growth can be expected with in a few months after treatment since the plasma needs to work itself in the follicles and stimulate growth. Results vary from patient to patient but in both cases the majority of patient see results of fuller hair with in 8 months!

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.

Beard hair or facial hair is often time desired in people who lack the ability to grow facial hair.  This can be a for a several reasons.  Religious reasons, social status and self esteem all contribute to why men seek out a fuller-thicker beard!

Beard Shapes and Sizes

Beard Anatomy

7 Regions: Cheek Beard, Mustache, Forebeard, Side Beard, Jaw Beard, Under Beard and Neck Hair

Usually, when I am transplanting the beard, I will use advanced harvest techniques at 3000 RPM with a 19G punch using the FUE ARTAS robot and taking hair from back of the head.  If I am taking hair from under the angle of the mandible I like to use a 1.0MM or 0.9MM sharp punch.
Most patients will need around 32 weeks for the beard to become fully developed from the transplant procedure. It usually takes 2 beard transplants to get a desired result however we occasionally will perform up to 4 transplants to achieve the amount of thickening that patients will want.
Average Cost ranges from about $5000.  Average number of Hairs needed to transplant varies dramatically but it is very common to go over 4,000 total hairs over 2,200 to 2,500 grafts.
