What is the ARTAS Robot?

The ARTAS Robot is a state-of-the-art hair transplantation system that utilizes robotic and artificial intelligence technology to perform follicular unit extraction (FUE). It significantly enhances the accuracy and efficiency of hair transplantation, providing results that are both natural-looking and consistent. Hill Country Plastic Surgery is the only clinic in South Texas that offers the groundbreaking ARTAS iXi hair restoration treatment.

How does the ARTAS Robot work?

The ARTAS Robot works by:

  • Digital imaging: Using sophisticated imaging technologies, ARTAS maps the scalp and identifies the best donor hair follicles.
  • Robotic precision: With its robotic arm, ARTAS extracts individual follicular units from the donor area with unmatched precision, ensuring minimal discomfort and no linear scarring.
  • AI algorithms: The system’s AI algorithms aid in planning the hairline and determining optimal graft placement, resulting in a natural-looking hair distribution.
  • Minimally invasive approach: The robot implants the harvested follicles into thinning areas, maintaining consistent spacing and depth for uniform hair growth.
  • 3D hairline design: The system offers a 3D system for hairline design, allowing this critical aspect of hair restoration to be custom-planned and performed without human error.

How much does ARTAS Robot cost?

The cost of this procedure is $7.00 per graft. Typically, patients need somewhere between 750-4500 grafts, depending on the extent of the hair loss and their goals for restoration. We recommend that you meet with the surgeon to determine how many grafts are right for you.

What are the benefits of hair restoration with the ARTAS Robot?

The ARTAS Robot offers several advantages:

  • Thicker hair that lasts: The hair transplanted using the ARTAS system is natural and lasts a lifetime, maintaining its appearance and texture.
  • Unmatched precision: The ARTAS robotic procedure is renowned for its high accuracy and reproducibility, ensuring consistently excellent results.
  • Efficient robotic harvesting: ARTAS technology excels in speed and effectiveness, and it is capable of harvesting over 2,000 grafts per hour, significantly more than traditional methods.
  • Minimal discomfort: Compared to conventional FUE hair restoration treatments, the ARTAS system is less painful, offering a more comfortable patient experience with a reduced recovery time.
  • No visible scarring: The absence of linear scars and stitching means patients can style their hair freely without concern for scar concealment.
  • 3D hairline simulation: Prior to treatment, ARTAS provides a 3D simulation, allowing patients to explore and customize different hairline options, graft counts, and distribution patterns for their desired look.
  • Rapid recovery process: Patients typically experience a swift recovery, returning to normal activities within a few days post-procedure.

Post-operative care and follow-up

Post-operative care is crucial for the success of hair restoration. At Hill Country Plastic Surgery, we provide:

Utilizing the ARTAS iXi robot, Hill Country Plastic Surgery offers follicular unit extraction (FUE), a minimally invasive hair transplantation technique. This advanced method, powered by artificial intelligence, significantly reduces the scarring typically associated with traditional hair transplants. The healing areas have no visible scarring and are discreet enough to allow for short hairstyles, providing more styling flexibility post-procedure.

To ensure a smooth recovery, we employ tailored medications and care protocols. These measures are designed to minimize discomfort and reduce the need for pain medication after the first day. Patients generally experience only minimal pain following the procedure, a testament to the gentle nature of the ARTAS robotic technique.

Hair regrowth: The timeline

Post-procedure follow-ups are scheduled for the day after and at 1, 3, 6, and 12 months to monitor the healing and hair growth process. Initially, patients may notice scabbing at the implantation sites, lasting approximately 7 to 10 days. It’s normal for transplanted hair to shed within the first three months before regrowth begins. Visible hair growth typically starts around 3 to 6 months, with most patients observing a noticeable increase in hair density from 6 to 9 months. The full, final results of the hair restoration are usually seen around 12 months post-procedure.
