What is an ARTAS Hair Transplant

Just because you are suffering from thinning hair, it doesn’t mean you have to live with it for the rest of your life. The ARTAS hair transplant is a minimally invasive procedure that offers a permanent solution for balding by restoring thick and volumized hair.

Gone are the days of invasive hair transplants that require a strip of scalp to be removed from the back of a patient’s head. The revolutionary ARTAS hair transplant uses an advanced robotic device to expertly extract healthy hair follicles before implanting them in a designated area.

The robotic procedure that reduces the human error associated with strictly manual techniques, has a faster recovery time, causes minimal scarring, and provides long-lasting results.

Am I a Good Candidate for ARTAS Hair Transplant?

An ARTAS hair transplant is a procedure that will appeal to any man or woman who is experiencing signs of balding with visible areas of the scalp. Patients should have a healthy set of hair in their donor site (normally the back of the scalp) as these hair follicles will be extracted and implanted in the designated area.

Good candidates should be in good physical and mental health and lack any medical conditions that will disrupt their recovery. It is also important to have realistic expectations about the results.

ARTAS Hair Transplant Benefits

Superior Results

The use of a robotic device reduces the risk of human error, leading to a faster procedure and superior results.

Reduced Discomfort

No painful surgical incision is required on the scalp. Patients will also benefit from a faster recovery time.

No Scarring

The FUE transplant harvest donor sites (less than 0.9mm) used in the extraction are not visible to most and will heal after 10 days.

Exceptional Accuracy

The robotic device calculates precisely where hair follicles are extracted, ensuring high accuracy and no uneven spots.

ARTAS Hair Transplant Risks & Complications

Like all hair restoration procedures, an ARTAS hair transplant comes with the risk of potential complications. The best thing patients can do to minimize the likelihood of complications is to select a trusted surgeon. TPS has been performing ARTAS hair transplants since its inception 5 years ago. Significant complications are uncommon and, in the rare event they occur, are expertly managed.

  • Bleeding and Swelling: Although less intrusive, some minor bleeding and swelling in the extraction site are possible.
  • Infection: Infection is extremely rare and can be eliminated by using a reputable, experienced surgeon, and preventative antibiotics.
  • Adverse Effects of Anesthesia: Your medical history will be thoroughly reviewed to ensure the best sedation for your condition.
  • Possible Healing Complications: Our team takes the utmost care and precautions to avoid any damage to hair follicles.

Different Types of Automated and ARTAS Hair Transplant

Neograft

The Neograft is an automated, rotary punch operated by an experienced FUE technician.

ARTAS Hair Transplant Alternatives

Low-level lasers, the injection of growth factors and topical nutrient shampoos and serums are non-surgical alternatives to an ARTAS hair transplant.

How is an ARTAS Hair Transplant Performed?

Once the local anesthesia is administered, the Toronto Plastic Surgeon’s specialist hair technicians set the angle and depth for the robot or the NeoGraft to follow during the initial harvest.

A tiny rotatory punch mechanism is then deployed, allowing the robotic device to accurately harvest the hair follicles. This sequence is repeated until the robot is finished harvesting from the area. The harvested follicular unit grafts are then placed on ice to cool, awaiting transplantation.

Following the extraction of hair follicles, the recipient sites are created with a small needle. The grafts are then expertly placed, by hand, one at a time and inserted to help create a denser head of hair.

Preparing for an ARTAS Hair Transplant

Before the ARTAS hair transplant, the hair follicles on the back of your scalp will be carefully examined to determine whether the follicles are healthy and viable for the site they will be implanted in. Your medications and medical history will also be reviewed.

 To prepare for an FUE Hair Transplant, there are some specific instructions to follow:

  • Do not take anti-inflammatory medications 1 week prior to the procedure.
  • Stop drinking alcohol and smoking 1 week before the transplant.
  • Do not eat after midnight the night before your surgery date.
  • On the day of the surgery, give your hair a deep wash with shampoo and conditioner.

What to Expect Post ARTAS Hair Transplant Surgery

Following your procedure, Dr. Mulholland and his team in Toronto will recommend a comprehensive postoperative care regime. This regime will include instructions about the importance of avoiding strenuous physical activity and minimizing direct exposure to the sun on your scalp.

Please note that it can take up to a year for your hair growth to occur after your FUE transplantation. Your results will depend on how many follicles were grafted during the surgery.

ARTAS Hair Transplant Recovery

Day 1-3: The head wrap garment is removed, and the patient is advised to gently wash their head.

Day 7: Most patients return to work and light activities. 

Day 10: Scabbing on the transplant area will now have disappeared.

Month 1: Hair growth begins for a significant chunk of the transplanted hair grafts.

Month 3-4: Density improvements are beginning to show.

Month 12-14: After 1 year, the final results are now more visible, with density and aesthetic improvement.

ARTAS Hair Transplant FAQ

Is Getting an ARTAS Hair Transplant Painful?

No. An ARTAS hair transplant doesn’t require a surgical incision on the scalp meaning there is significantly less discomfort felt by the patient. This is reflected by the relatively short recovery time. Once the local anesthesia is inserted, which is performed under laughing gas (nitrous oxide) there will be no feeling in the area.

What’s the Difference Between ARTAS and Neograft?

ARTAS and Neograft are both minimally-invasive hair transplant procedures that use a tiny rotatory punch to harvest and both have a fast recovery time compared to other hair transplant methods. The key difference between the two is that a NeoGraft procedure requires an expert technician to manually harvest hair follicles from the donor site, while ARTAS uses an automatic robotic arm with greater accuracy. Both techniques are highly successful and popular FUE transplant procedures, and Toronto Plastic Surgeons offer BOTH. We will help you select the best technique for you.

Do All Hair Types Work with an ARTAS Hair Transplant?

Yes. The ARTAS hair transplant is able to provide lasting results on hair that is dark, blonde, grey, and very curly. For those with blonde hair and grey hair, we must first dye the hair temporarily on the day of the procedure so that the device can properly visualize the hair follicles. The results you can expect and the effectiveness of the treatment on your scalp will be discussed with you during your initial consultation.
