The Process Of Robotic FUE
To harvest the grafts, the back of the head must be shaved. The numbers of grafts that can be harvested are about the same as with follicular unit excision (FUT). The Follicular Units (FUs) are removed from the scalp and placed in dishes with a cold preservative solution. The placement is the same as with follicular unit excision (FUT). The bald scalp is outlined and injected with a local anesthetic. Tiny openings are created with varying sized needles and the FUs are inserted manually.
The Robotic transplant takes about 2 hours longer than the traditional FUT. Post-op, as with a FUT procedure, the transplanted hairs fall out over a few weeks, and the new hairs regrow in and about three to five months. Most people look their best in about eight to ten months. Future balding and the desire for increased density dictates the need for future sessions.
