0Robotic hair transplantation is a greatest achievement in the field of Hair Transplants. The robotic systems are used in this procedure to achieve perfection and higher efficiency in order to provide outstanding results. The image-guided robotic system will help in assisting us with a robotic arm which does the follicular unit extraction (FUE) extraction. It is generally time consuming to remove the grafts from back of the head and also it requires lot of concentration by the surgeon. However, here the robotic system which would be guided by the doctor would be able to reproduce the angle, penetration depth and consistency to give very nice grafts for harvesting. The robot machine removes hair grafts one by one and will be able to implant them as well. Sareen Hair Clinic offers robotic hair transplant at affordable rates. Our centers in India, USA, UK and Canada provides 2 dollar per graft within just 2 hours
This is an outpatient procedure performed in the doctor’s office, which requires only a local anesthetic. It may take four to eight hours as said by the doctor to achieve best results. During the process, the individual would be seated comfortably and also the support would be given by doctors and the staff until the entire procedure is completed. The patient feels almost no pain. The follicular units are separated from the surrounding skin.
The separation of the follicular units from the surrounding donor tissue is a highly repetitive and labor intensive process that requires great precision. This step involves focusing of the punch over the follicular unit and the alignment of the dividing instrument with the follicles to inhibit any damage. In FUE procedure, this step is usually repeated manually thousands of times which may lead to some human erraticism and error. But the machine does it efficiently. The machine finds the precise location of each follicular unit, recompenses in simultaneous patient movement, and arranges each graft for harvesting. A robotic arm then installs a 1mm needle which contains both sharp and dull components; it extracts the graft, and arranges the unit for forceps removal by a doctor. After removal of a particular follicular unit, the machine rescans the donor region and uses a randomization pattern to select the next graft. The follicular units are then removed from the scalp and robotically transported to a vessel where it would be kept cool and moist up until implantation.
Potential benefits of robotic hair transplantation include:
As the healing time is short, individuals can usually go back to the daily activities within a day or two. A follow up visit would be scheduled the morning after the procedure to examine the scalp and to teach how to take care of the newly implanted hair.
