Let’s have a look at Robotic Hair Transplant:

Robotic hair transplant is a revolutionary advancement in the field of hair Transplantation techniques. This technique speeds up the hair transplantation procedure by allowing the surgeon to extract hair follicles with an automated tool that has a lot more precision and accuracy as compared to the manual method.

How does it work?

It is an advanced method that is consisted of a robotic arm that has graft extraction, video images, and site creation capabilities.

Robotic extraction

In the process of graft extraction, the automated system is used to pluck the hair follicles from the donor sites, as programmed by the surgeon. This system has the ability to extract hundreds of hair follicles in a single session. The built-in software of the robot helps the specialist to specify the exact size and length of the follicle. The automated process minimizes the possibility of follicles damage during extraction and implantation.

Site Creation

The robot is also essential in making the recipient sites to place the obtained grafts. The specialist prepares an optimal plan for site creation by using the software system present in the robot. There are numerous factors to consider while preparing the recipient sites to make the surgery successful. These include an angle of hair elevation, average density, site depth and a number of recipient site incisions. The surgeon programs these parameters into the robot and implements the plan with a speed that cannot be achieved with the hand.

How to prepare for the surgery?

You need to consider following factors while preparing yourself for the Robotic hair transplant.

  • Abstain from taking blood-thinning medicines for at least 2 weeks
  • Avoid smoking and alcohol consumption for few days before the procedure
