The ARTAS® Experience
Deciding to have a hair transplant procedure is an important, life-changing decision for any man. It’s important that you understand the details of how the ARTAS® Robotic Procedure will work, what you can expect during the procedure, and when you’ll expect to see results.
The process starts with a thorough, detailed consultation with a qualified hair transplant physician. Your physician will ask about your hair loss history, and how you’d like your hair to look. The physician will examine your hair loss, and assess the amount of donor hair that you have available for transplant. From there, you’ll learn whether you’re a candidate for the ARTAS Robotic Procedure and what treatment options may be available to you.
Day of Procedure
Most ARTAS Robotic Procedures start in the morning and end in the afternoon. You’ll wear comfortable clothes to the procedure, and possibly a loose-fitting hat for your ride home. Many patients choose to listen to music or watch a movie during the procedure.
During the Procedure
During the ARTAS Robotic Procedure, you’ll be seated and the physician and team will do everything they can to ensure your comfort. A local anesthetic will be used, but you’ll be awake and alert during the procedure. There will be time for breaks during the procedure, so you can have lunch or take care of personal issues.
After the Procedure
You’ll be able to return home immediately after the procedure. Your doctor will instruct you on how to care for your newly transplanted hair. Most people will return to their usual activities in a few days.
Your New Hair Growth
For the next several weeks, as your new hair takes root, you’ll look the same as you did before the procedure. Hair growth usually begins about three months after the procedure, with the majority of hair growth occurring within 5 – 8 months. Your hair will continue to fill in for the next several months.
With your new hair, you’ll be able to cut, wash and style your hair in any way you choose. Once the hair is grown in, you’ll care for it just like the rest of your hair.
