AI-Powered Hair Restoration
At Core Plastic Surgery, we utilize the most sophisticated FUE technique – the ARTAS Robotic Hair Restoration System. This "intelligent hair transplant technology" employs a robotic arm and state-of-the-art artificial intelligence to meticulously select the best grafts for transplantation. Under the guidance of Dr. Core, the specially-calibrated robotic arm initiates the harvesting process. Within a few hours, a precise amount of grafts is collected, and once expertly prepared, these are skillfully transplanted into the targeted area(s) of hair loss. Trust in Core Plastic Surgery for cutting-edge hair restoration with the unparalleled precision of the ARTAS Robotic System.
Taking Hair Restoration to New Heights
The ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant is a groundbreaking hair restoration system and the only FDA-cleared robotic hair transplant procedure that allows men to wear short hair. Planning for robotic hair restoration with ARTAS involves customized 3D modeling, so patients can see the area design before the procedure is performed. The system utilizes artificial intelligence and digital imaging to accurately identify and extract follicles with robotic precision. During your consultation, Dr. Core will discuss the benefits of each technique and help you determine which FUE method is right for you.
The Precision Of Artas
Gaining FDA approval in 2011, ARTAS has become one of the most advanced hair restoration techniques in the world. ARTAS iX is FDA approved for men with straight, dark hair. And the process could not be simpler or more comfortable! With the patient comfortably seated, the system digitally maps their scalp. It then uses AI mapping to analyze the healthiest follicular units to harvest for transplantation. ARTAS is not a handheld device but rather an automated machine that robotically transplants healthy grafts to thinning areas.
This all-in-one system calibrates to the unique area of your head before calculating a personalized approach. The ARTAS System uses a robotic arm to extract healthy follicles from donor areas before placing them in balding areas at equal depths and distances. Because ARTAS is almost completely automated, the room for error is decreased significantly. With ARTAS, you can see a fuller head of hair with a shorter procedure. The ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant is the only FDA-cleared robotic hair transplant procedure that allows men to wear short hair.
Most people with hair loss can undergo an ARTAS hair restoration procedure. However, there are some exceptions. Dr. Core will only recommend FUE if it is right for you. FUE may not be a good fit in the following circumstances.
The best candidates for ARTAS are men with healthy hair in both the donor area and the areas surrounding the hair loss. It is important to have realistic expectations before you choose FUE. That’s why Dr. Core meets with every patient beforehand to get a better idea of their goals.
A Core Advantage
Dr. Core has a wealth of experience in the field of hair transplantation and follicular unit extraction, as well as being a prominent plastic surgeon in the Birmingham, AL, area. Therefore, a personal consultation to speak with him in-depth about your treatment is essential to get the most effective treatment plan for your goals.
He will ask you about your difficulty with hair loss and will look at your scalp and the donor area to examine hair thickness, hair quality, and scalp health. Once he has all the relevant information, he will draw up your individualized treatment plan and schedule your procedure.
Experience ARTAS iX Excellence
Before the ARTAS procedure begins, Dr. Core will administer topical anesthesia to your scalp for your comfort. Depending on the number of follicular units extracted, prepared, and re-implanted into the scalp, the procedure will take six to eight hours to complete. Some procedures may take longer if you are addressing extensive hair loss. Dr. Core will ensure you are comfortable and have everything you need before he starts.
Once the topical anesthesia has taken effect, Dr. Core will configure the system’s robotic removal process to the correct specifications for your hair and begin the extraction program. The AI-guided robotic arm will then find healthy follicular units and harvest them. The individual grafts are then prepared and reimplanted into the area of hair loss over several hours. As this process is automated, it is both extremely accurate and extremely reliable!
Artistry & Skill
In a few weeks, you will see the grafted hair shed, but there is no need to worry – this is part of the process. The grafted hair has awakened the hair follicle it was placed into. Over a period of two to three months, the follicles will start to produce their own terminal hair, and a restored head of hair will be the result. Most patients will see their final results between 6 and 12 months after their procedure once their hair has had ample time to grow.
The Future Is Near
After your procedure is complete, you will be able to leave immediately afterward. In the first few days, your scalp will be tender, and you may see localized redness and swelling in both the donor and recipient areas. Dr. Core provides pain medication and antibiotics as required to aid your recovery process. Using some caution and common sense, you can return to most of your daily activities in the days that follow. Please follow Dr. Core’s written guidance on how to bathe, how to sleep, and when to resume exercise, as there will be some limitations to ensure you get the best results possible.
Most doctors and patients have their preferences, but both are incredibly effective and minimally invasive. The best way to find out which is right for you is to discuss it at a consultation with your FUE specialist.
The cost of FUE with ARTAS is highly dependent on how much hair needs to be harvested and re-implanted. Dr. Core will give you an estimate once he has created your individual treatment plan. Stop worrying about your hair loss and get FUE to solve the issue in a minimally-invasive way!
