Baiju Gohil of Robotic Hair Restoration Long Island says that a current trend in hair transplant surgery is the growing popularity of Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). Unlike the more traditional Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT), which is when a group of hairs are taken from the back of the scalp, resulting in pain and prolonged recovery. FUE is minimally invasive and occurs when one hair graft is taken at a time from the donor area. “This technique is less painful, is associated with a faster recovery time, and has virtually no scarring,” says Gohil. “It is typically accomplished by the surgeon using a manual or motorized handheld device. As one can imagine, performing this procedure can be very tedious and technically demanding for the surgeon.” 

Gohil also explains that the most advanced technology available for hair restoration today is the ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant System. “This state-of-the-art surgical system can perform a number of components of the entire hair transplant process,” says Gohil. The system collects hair from the back of the scalp using the FUE technique. He also explains that there are several benefits to using this system, including eliminating human error and fatigue, providing a precise procedure, and harvesting of the best grafts.
