Robotics Hair Transplant is nothing but an expensive advancement in the traditional FUE Hair Transplant. Though quite expensive, it is a significant advancement in the Follicular Unit Extraction after Stem Cell FUE. Like other parts of the world, the UAE market also welcomed robot guided hair transplantation technique quite warmly. But you will be amazed to know that hair loss patients still prefer Stem Cell FUE Hair Transplant over Robotics Hair Transplant.
As the name shows, Robotics FUE is carried out through software guided robot while Stem Cell FUE is performed by the doctor using an automated punch tool. Obviously, a technology guided robot if given the right command, will perform the work in a more sophisticated way and with unmatchable accuracy. But this speed and precision comes at a hefty price, which not every hair loss patient can pay. Besides being expensive, there are several other shortcomings as well that make Robotics Hair Transplant second priority of hair loss patients.
Differences between two hair transplantation techniques are listed below. Give them a read and decide which one is better.
The robot guided hair transplant surgery is way too expensive as compared to traditional FUE and Stem Cell FUE. Cost of a 2500 grafts Stem Cell FUE Hair Transplant starts from AED 15,000, whereas the same number of grafts with Robot transplantation will cost you over AED 45,000 (thrice the cost of Stem Cell FUE).
With Stem Cell FUE, Hair Transplant Dubai Clinic’s surgeons guarantee 100 percent hair growth success. On the other hand, robot guided hair transplant surgery promises a success rate of only 80 percent. Wondering why? There are several factors, just continue reading to know them.
Robotics hair transplantation system uses a 1.2 mm gauge needle whereas the automated punch tool used for Stem Cell FUE has a diameter of less than 0.6 mm. Wondering how needle size can affect the results? Size of grafts matters a lot in determining the success of a hair transplant. Larger grafts look unnatural and create pluggy hairline.
Since the size of gauge needle in case of robot-guided transplant is double the size of Stem Cell FUE punch, it causes more damage to the scalp tissues in the donor and recipient areas. The wound created will be larger in size and will take more time to heal. Whereas, in the case of Stem Cell FUE micro wounds heal quite quickly and uneventfully.
Stem Cell FUE gives more natural results as compared to the Robotics Hair Transplant, and the reason behind is once again the graft size. The smaller the size of graft the more natural looking hairline it will create. The 1.2mm needle gauge harvests bigger grafts which look pluggy and unnatural on the scalp. People around you can easily tell you that you have a recreated hairline.
Robotics Hair Transplant allows for a limited number of grafts transplantation, courtesy the bigger size of gauge needle. With the micro-sized punch tool used for Stem Cell FUE, a surgeon can harvest over 3000 grafts in a single session. Robot-guided transplant, on the other hand allows transplanting a maximum of 2500 grafts only in a single session. The shock loss further reduces the number of grafts that actually survive and grow. Therefore, hair density in case of Robotic Hair Transplant is a lot less than Stem Cell FUE.
Last but not least, the robot is a machine and will work only as effective as the operator operates it. If the person operating the system is not an expert of the traditional hair transplant techniques, the robot will not produce impressive results. The results will always be as good as the operator. However, in case of Stem Cell FUE, an inexperienced surgeon does not even dare to offer the procedure because he knows the level of expertise it demands.
